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 …

New Products I’m Currently Trying

How’s it going all? It’s a rainy weekend which means it’s an indoors type of day where I get to catch up on blogging! I have been shopping quite a bit – probably a little too much for my own good but it’s been super fun. I’ve more or less racked up a new wardrobe however for today, I want to discuss some new products that I’ve been trying out lately that are “new” to me. I am terrible when it comes to actually being on-trend. I generally buy products on the whim or products that has been on my list for a while and well, here they are in all their glory…or not. You shall see. New in Bodycare I’ll start with my first disappointing piece because from memory, it is the oldest from my “new collection of things”. It is the Avene Mineral Fluid SPF50+. I bought this over a month ago – actually on my first week when I had just started my new job. Although I needed a new sunscreen, it was …

My Favourite Beauty Combinations

I have been thinking about this topic for quite some time. It just occurred to me one evening whilst I was laying in bed (the best time for inspiration don’t you think?) and since then, I have been so excited to write this. This year probably marks the year where my routines are maturing. I know what I want to use, what product I’m looking for and which products I like using together or might possibly work well together. It’s less of the wishy-washy stuff and more of the products that really speak for themselves. Functionality over aesthetics. So without further ado, here it is, my favourite beauty combinations. No7 Youthful Eye Serum + Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream This is my favourite eyecare combo to date! I have long been a fan of the No7 Youthful Eye Serum so I would recommend it as a base for any of your eye creams. For me, once I introduced the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream along with it, it was a game-changer. I have been using eye cream …

A Curious LUSH Haul + 1 Throwback

I asked a few weeks ago whether you wanted to read a haul post. It was a stupid question with an obvious answer but it’s always nice to test the waters, isn’t it? Plus it fuels my excitement to share even more. This is only a small fraction of what I purchased with most being from the LUSH Christmas Sale but nevertheless, items that I’m making relevant to my lifestyle as of now. Since I had quite a handful of LUSH products to show you – all except one being entirely new to me, I thought I’d group these into a post of their own. In other words, another haul post is coming after this one…but first, let’s talk all things LUSH shall we? Featured in this post: Sleepy Body Lotion Snowman Shower Jelly (Christmas Exclusive) Bubbly Shower Gel (Christmas Ex.) Buck’s Fizz Body Conditioner (Christmas Ex.) Salt and Peppermint Bark Body Scrub (Christmas Ex.) Shooting Stars Soap (Christmas Ex.) Mask of Magnaminty Self-Preserving Face and Body Mask I haven’t shopped since my trip to …

The Beauty Clean-Up #10 (empties)

The last time I did an Empties was in February but for some reason, it feels much longer than that. (I actually had a slight panic just now thinking this one was my first of the year, haha.) The weather couldn’t be any more bipolar right now. Last week was the warmest of the year, going up to about 22 degrees where I am in the UK. This week seems like such a stark contrast that it’s hard to believe it was ever sunny. In fact, tonight feels a bit more chillier than the previous few days – Spring, where art thou? Regardless of that, I still need to do a clean-out. As a result of a trip to Hong Kong, some empties were disposed of before I came back, so there will be no pictures of those items. I do however, have previous photos to reference it to since I did a whole post on what skincare products I brought with me here! + Would repurchase – Will not bother again = Neutral/Indifferent + …
