Review: L’Oréal Fine Flowers Gel-Cream Wash

I would like to get back into routine of writing more reviews. I don’t typically write them because they take the most time to not only make a post out of, but to product-test and/or have a discussion set up. As such, not all products are worthy of discussion (which is how I decide whether to review something or not) but certainly for today, we’ll be having quite a heated one. This time, I am reviewing the L’Oréal Fine Flowers Gel-Cream Wash, so stick around to find out just what I think! FYI – I have combination to oily skin, with a tendency to be dehydrated. What is it? It’s a gel-cream wash cleanser, formulated for dry and sensitive skin. I don’t necessarily have dry skin so arguably this isn’t for me, however I find it interesting to test out some products this way because I don’t think labels are always correct. This cleanser’s selling points are its rose and jasmine flower extracts which supposedly sooth, moisturise and protect the skin. How much does it …

Review: My Beauty Diary Bird’s Nest Mask

If you remember from my YesStyle Beauty Haul + Experience post, I had hauled two different boxes of sheet masks. One was the NARUKO Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask which I have previously reviewed. Today, I am reviewing the My Beauty Diary Bird’s Nest Mask. 🙂 For reference, I have combination/oily skin that can have a tendency to be dehydrated. Let’s begin shall we? What is it? It is a box of 10 sheet masks, designed to hold as much fluid as possible in order to moisten and soften the skin from layers below the epidermis. From the grid, it claims to nourish and brighten, firm and moisturise so it’s definitely a sheet mask that packs a punch (or so it seems). How much does it cost? I purchased mine for £15.51 which is a reasonable price I think. I tried to find a RRP but it was difficult to do so. However, in my experience, the ordinary MBD masks are around  £10/11 per box, and the fancier ones (like this one) …

A Handful of K-Beauty Masks

A few months ago, I hauled quite a lot of beauty products which included a total of five sheet mask singles hence the title. Today, I am back to give you my mini reviews of them. I was going to call them first impressions but to be honest, I think my opinions will be a little too descriptive to call it that. Also, in my experience, I have never had a differing opinion from the first, when I tried the same sheet mask again. If in the future, I come across more K-beauty sheet mask singles, then I will make this into a reoccurring series. 🙂 Let’s begin, shall we? TONYMOLY I’m Real Sheet Masks in ‘Rice’: This is technically not my first time trying out Tonymoly masks, but it is my first time trying one from the I’m Real line. The fit for me was generally good as are the hole placements; however, the area between the nose and lips is too wide therefore covering up most of my upper-lip! There are slits too that …

Review: LUSH Dream Cream

So far, all of my reviews have been positive except for one. I will spoil for you now and let you know that this is no exception! I promise that in the new year, I will be a bit more fearless and try out more products that I am unsure of whether I will like or not, rather than going for the safe options. 😝😂 (Of course, this does not affect how I conduct my reviews at all. I like what I like and I dislike what I dislike…everything that I think is relevant, I will write down. The best part of blogging is sharing the experience!) But for now, this is my review of the LUSH Dream Cream. Enjoy! Warning: This is a long post so please grab a hot beverage!  What is it? It’s a vegan hand and body lotion that’s specifically designed for ultra sensitive skin. It claims to be soothing and cooling. How much does it cost? There are actually 3 different sizes however, I was only made aware of 2. I …

6 Months After Using More The Ordinary Skincare

I haven’t talked about The Ordinary in a couple of months (with the exception of favourites and empties post) so I thought now would be the perfect time to update you all on my continued experience since my last post. So far, I’ve been mostly impressed and it gives me joy that word has gotten around about this amazing brand. I’m almost sure that it needs no introduction now because it’s really taken the industry by storm. ‘Work until you no longer have to introduce yourself’, they say. That sums up The Ordinary’s situation; just that it may have happened much sooner than anticipated! They have done the unthinkable. Featured in this post: Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Buffet Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% Advanced Retinoid 2% Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% I will say though – the ONE product that I haven’t continued use with is the Vitamin C Suspension …
