Review: L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Wash

I’m currently in the midst of testing numerous products. I haven’t actually counted how many but it’s definitely over ten! For now, I’m just focusing on the moment and with an almost entirely different skincare routine, I truly hope I’m making the right transition! If all goes well, I will write up my new skincare routine in about a month’s time. 🙂 Today, it’s the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Wash that I’ll be talking about so carry on reading to see what I make of it! For reference, I have combination/oily skin that can have a tendency to be dehydrated.   What is it?  It’s a cleansing gel-wash formulated with three pure clays combined with charcoal, to help detoxify your skin. The ‘detox’ includes absorbing excess oil, dirt and make-up residue which more often than not, lead to imperfections if not treated well. With use, this product helps to deeply cleanse and purify your skin. (Below Information taken from FeelUnique.com) 3 PURE CLAYS + CHARCOAL Kaolin- a highly effective natural clay, known to absorb …

Review: NARUKO Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask

Hello everyone! Today, I’m back with something a little different from my usual posts. Traditionally, I do not write reviews. Maybe some concise reviews here and there as part of a collective haul/empties/you-name-it post but never have I written a detailed, individual review. Well, I guess this is the start of something new! Originally, I had planned to post a collection of first impressions relating back to my quite recent YesStyle Haul on my Instagram but as I started writing about the first product in my drafts, I had more than enough to say – in other words, it was getting lengthy. Thus, I decided it was best to type up a full-size review because believe me – this product deserves more than a first impressions glance! For reference, I have combination/oily skin that can have a tendency to be dehydrated. Let’s begin shall we? What is it? It’s a box of 10 sheet masks, designed to help skin replenish hydration intensely so that dull, tired-looking skin becomes radiant again. How much does it cost? …

The Beauty Clean-Up #5 (empties)

We’re onto #5! Wow. That actually feels like some sort of achievement because right at the start of this journey, I just wanted to use up more of my beauty products, some of which weren’t being touched and by doing so, reduce wastage. Now that I’ve gotten to this number,  I’m using up products that I’m trying out but liking at the same time meaning that I’ve put more emphasis on how I shop and not just buying for the sake of buying. Completing an empties post is as decluttering for the mind as it is for the home (literally). So now, comes the time to empty my junk box again to welcome Spring and to give myself an excuse to buy new products! (There’s still so many brands and products I need to try out!) Let’s Start: + Would repurchase – Will not bother again = Neutral/Indifferent + SANA Soy Milk Moisture Cleansing Wash – Nivea Daily Essentials Crème Care Cleansing Cream Wash + Clean & Clear Exfoliating Daily Wash + LUSH Ultrabland + Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz + Earth Therapeutics Brightening Black Pearl …

A Two-Years-After Review on Real Techniques Brushes (Total of 12!)

I’ve officially surpassed the ‘newbie’ stage in makeup so you can say I feel a bit more entitled to talk about the ins and outs of a brush brand that is so widely known; that I have used from the beginning of my makeup journey just over two years ago. If like me, you started with Real Techniques brushes, then you’re in for a trip down memory lane! For the most part, they’re still going strong but which brushes do I really like and would recommend? And which are not so well-loved, falling a bit short? Note: I don’t own a huge array of brushes (across different brands) so I won’t be able to compare these to others. However, that could be for the better! I mainly own Real Techniques and EcoTools.  Featured in this post: Expert Face Brush Blush Brush Powder Brush Core Collection Starter Set The brushes are colour-coded which to my knowledge, is unique to the brand. Gold: Flawless base brushes (Foundation, Powder, Concealer) Pink: Finishing Brushes (Setting Powder, Blush/Bronzer, Highlight/Contour) Purple: Eye …

Follow-Up Review on The Ordinary Moisturisers

The hype is real. Part of my Instagram feed is filled with skincare-related posts (even those recommended to me) and I see so many of them talking about The Ordinary and/or showing The Ordinary within their skincare. (I don’t know why I act so surprised – it’s in my skincare routine too!) Just in case you need some more info to fill you in, I managed to find a post by Caroline Hirons that I had read a few months ago! If you missed my last two posts regarding the company and some of its products, you can catch up here and here. If you didn’t, thank you so much for having read it! As promised, here is the remaining chapter of that haul: The Ordinary moisturisers and how I got on with them. Featured in this post: The Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% IF YOU ARE USING THESE PRODUCTS/INTERESTED, PLEASE READ THIS SPECIAL NOTE: The Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is incompatible with both these products. It is recommended to …
