Brand Review | Avant (Ultimate Hyaluronic Acid DUO Moisturiser, Pro-Radiance Brightening Eye cream, Glycolic Acid Exfoliator, Harmonious Rose Quartz Mask, Pink Orchid Serum)

If you know about Avant, you’re probably a subscriber of a monthly beauty box. I don’t know anyone who has purchased directly from Avant, mainly due to the absurd price, but in case you’re considering getting a beauty box with an Avant product in it and you’re wondering if t’s any good, this post is for you. Avant: the luxury skincare brand that nobody ever paid full price for.

Skincare Empties – Tried, Tested… But Trusted? #2

Skincare Empties – Tried, Tested… But Trusted? #2

I’m very overdue with my empties. I need to take out the trash though, I’m in the middle of moving, and if I bring empty plastic bottles into the new apartment that’ll be the last nail in my hoarder coffin. It’s getting comfy in there. Seriously, it’s scary.

Cult Beauty Haul (Low Buy Year? Never Met Her)

Cult Beauty Haul (Low Buy Year? Never Met Her)

So, remember when I said I wouldn’t get the Unsung Heroes Beauty Bag? Well, I didn’t. You thought I did, didn’t you? You think I’m that weak, no self control, irresponsible person that gives in to her every beauty urges, don’t you? Well, joke’s on you. I didn’t get it.

My husband got it for me.

Brand Review | U Beauty (The Super Smart Hydrator, Resurfacing Compound)

Brand Review | U Beauty (The Super Smart Hydrator, Resurfacing Compound)

U Beauty’s philosophy revolves around streamlining and reducing the amount of skincare products one has to use day to day. It’s meant to reduce a 12 step routine into a 2 step one, I guess, because they only make 2 products for the face so far, and the price for both of those is enough to purchase a 12 step routine, two times over. At least.

The Maskerade Ball | 5 Quick Reviews of… Sheet Masks!

The Maskerade Ball | 5 Quick Reviews of… Sheet Masks!

Being a beauty box subscriber and a GWP enthusiast, I end up with a lot of masks. Mini masks, full size masks, sample masks, sheet masks. And sometimes I struggle to find enough to say to dedicate a full post to a singular mask. So it makes sense to me to group 5 masks of the same type for a quick round of short reviews.

The theme today are hydrating, calming face sheet masks, from 5 different brands.

Limitless by Sephora: Ticket Beauty Box and My Opinion of the Event

Limitless by Sephora: Ticket Beauty Box and My Opinion of the Event

Limitless by Sephora was an online event prepared by Sephora Portugal that was supposed to happen the past 20th of June. You could get access to the event by buying a beauty box filled with goodies for 30€. When the boxes sold out, you could get the ticket for the event alone for 10€. Now, this was the first time something like this was organised by Sephora. Did I mention it was online?

You know what they say, life is what happens when bandwidth allows it.

Brand Review | The Inkey List (niacinamide, retinol, eye creams, oat cleanser & more)

Brand Review | The Inkey List (niacinamide, retinol, eye creams, oat cleanser & more)

Gender neutral, ingredient focused, inexpensive and TikTok famous. Sounds like The Ordinary good, right? Over the past few months, I’ve been testing out quite an assortment of The Inkey List’s skincare products to see if they can make my skin look as Gen Z as the audience they market to.

Greek Beauty Haul | Seven7een, Radiant, Erre Due, Korres, Apivita, AK Makeup, Tommy G

Greek Beauty Haul | Seven7een, Radiant, Erre Due, Korres, Apivita, AK Makeup, Tommy G

I’ve spent more on beauty during my honeymoon in Santorini than I’ve ever spent on any other trip. I had no idea that Greece had so many beauty brands! I knew about Korres and that was it. So when I went to a department store and saw so many greek makeup brands, I kind of lost it a bit. Like a kid at a candy store that is spending grandma’s money, because we all know mama won’t put up with it. I had to get myself out of there at some point because I was buying the entire store.

Shop & Tell: Massive Beauty Haul (Makeup, Skincare, Hair, Fragrance)

Shop & Tell: Massive Beauty Haul (Makeup, Skincare, Hair, Fragrance)

Do you remember this post? Yeah me neither.

In my defence, this is over 2 months’ worth of purchases. Since I’ve been pretending trying to cut back on my makeup and skincare purchases, I’ve really gotten into haircare and fragrance. A ridiculous transition, I know, since I was trying to save on beauty spending, but alas, it still happened, and here we are.
