Review: It’s Skin Collagen Nutrition Eye Cream

I’m back with another review! This time, it’s a K-beauty item that I bought online which you may recognise from my YesStyle Haul post. I’ve been testing it out for over a month – the only eye cream that I’ve been using day and night actually, so I think it’s time to finally do a write-up! Enjoy! ūüôā What is it?¬† It’s an eye cream that’s part of the It’s Skin Collagen Nutrition skincare line which I’ve never tried before. In fact, I’ve never tried this brand before either. This eye cream (supposedly) promotes elasticity and moisture to the eye-area. How much does it cost? Its actual price seems to be around the ¬£15 mark but I got this on sale on YesStyle for around ¬£6/7. Considering that the tube is 25ml as opposed to the typical 15ml, this is a bargain! Where from? The brand itself is from South Korea. The actual product, I purchased from YesStyle. Who is it for?¬† When researching the brand, I found it¬†very interesting. So¬†It’s Skin realised the skin …

August Monthly Favourites ft. The Ordinary, Innisfree + Bobbi Brown!

It feels like ages since I sat down and talked with everyone but it has only been a solid week of me being away! Really sorry about that. Last Tuesday, I went to a Spa day with two of my very good friends which was something planned months in advance. That took up the full day but sometimes you just need to catch-up with people and life you know? That day, I promised myself to leave technology behind! Realistically, posting on Tuesday or even the following day wasn’t going to happen but I still had plans to post twice last week. Come Thursday evening, I noticed that my throat was starting to feel clogged up which is normally the first sign that I’m coming down with a cold – and that’s exactly what happened. The bad kind too. As if that wasn’t enough, on Friday evening, I noticed I had a peculiar mosquito bite on my leg which actually swell up the following day like a bruised golf ball. Genuinely praying to the Gods that …

Some Advice If You’re Breaking Out

  As I’m typing this, it’s a Sunday afternoon (20th August to be exact) and I’m breaking out¬†again. I may have mentioned briefly that I broke out some weeks ago – quite horrifically. Perhaps the worse breakout I’ve ever had in my adult life. In a way I didn’t know how to deal and the recovery took about two weeks which is really long in my books (but I realise this is different for everybody and for every breakout). Today, I thought I’d give some advice on this front, as much as I’m still breaking out; though this time, it’s not so serious and I think more linked to ‘that time of the month’. Now, this isn’t a miracle guide by any means, but I think are some crucial steps that I’ve learnt over the years as well as more recently. If you want, you can share some of your best tips in the comments too and make this a useful discussion for everyone! ūüôā Enjoy!   [See also: My Current Treatments Routine] You’re not …

July Monthly Favourites ft. Charlotte Tilbury, H&M + Etude House!

I actually couldn’t tell you what happened in July, except for the fact that I watched¬†a lot of Wimbledon tennis for most of it. Otherwise the month just flew by as if we just skipped a month and said hello to August which also –¬†what’s that all about?! I can however tell you what I’ve been really loving in the past month and wouldn’t you believe it…there is only one skincare product! As such, I’ll start with that first.

I masked a lot in those two weeks of recovering (!!) which lead …

Overdue is largely an understatement right now but I’m glad I can actively throw away what’s been in my beauty junk box since the last time we spoke.
