Review | Simple Water Boost Hydrating Gel Cream (a solution for oily dehydrated sensitive skin)

Review | Simple Water Boost Hydrating Gel Cream (a solution for oily dehydrated sensitive skin)

You know how, even though you feel very powerful in a freakum dress and high heels, you sometimes just need to put on that beat up cardigan and loose sweat pants and be comfortable and snug? This is what this product is. The granny pants of moisturizers. Not very sexy, definitely not something new, but God forbid if you don’t have one.

Review | Sarah Chapman Skinesis Intense Hydrating Booster

Review | Sarah Chapman Skinesis Intense Hydrating Booster

My current skincare routine usually involves a hydrating serum first, then a treatment, then a moisturizer. My GOD, quarantine me is soo extra. This only happens because I’m working from home and literally roll out of bed 10 minutes before I have to be in front of the computer. Time saved on commute is enough to sleep a little more and do my skincare. I may have week-old stained pyjamas on, but my skincare is done.

iRestore Laser Hair Growth System for hair loss- does it really work? (I SPENT 1000$ ON THIS SH*T!)

iRestore Laser Hair Growth System for hair loss- does it really work? (I SPENT 1000$ ON THIS SH*T!)

You know how hard it is to find a review on this product where it wasn’t sponsored or at least given for free? Seriously, trying to find someone who actually spent their own hard earned money on this thing was near impossible – I wasn’t able to. But if you’re here, that means you did – you found me. Hi there.

Review | Sweet Chef Ginger + Vitamin C Fresh Pressed Sheet Mask

Review | Sweet Chef Ginger + Vitamin C Fresh Pressed Sheet Mask

With this year’s pandemic that made it so that I can barely leave the house, makeup only gets dusted off for poorly lit zoom calls and clothes get neglected for near-rag pyjamas, so at what other thing can I throw my money to cloud and numb the cold, harsh reality with frivolous consumerism? Skincare.

ASOS 24 day Face and Body Advent Calendar 2020

ASOS 24 day Face and Body Advent Calendar 2020

I started my Christmas shopping really early this year. Seriously. I was sooo ahead with gifts for myself. Still, I didn’t manage to snatch this up the first time it showed up (it was September! my bikini was still wet!!). I had to wait for a restock.

LookFantastic 2020 Beauty Chest – better than any beauty advent calendar

LookFantastic 2020 Beauty Chest – better than any beauty advent calendar

I don’t need excuses to buy beauty products, but it’s nice to have them. I’m new to the beauty advent calendar mania (I know, it’s surprising, but they didn’t use to come by easily in Portugal), so this year I’ve been paying more attention. I was already down for the LookFantastic Advent Calendar when this thing dropped – 11 full size products for 85 pounds. Yes, want, mine.

No one talks about… Clarins Mineral Sun Care Compact for Face SPF30 (review, swatches)

No one talks about… Clarins Mineral Sun Care Compact for Face SPF30 (review, swatches)

No one talks about…” is a series of makeup reviews of products that have very few to no reviews online (reviews on online stores are not accounted for). This is so that if you’re searching for a bit more information before biting the bullet, you’ll at least have these swatches, photos, and my humble opinion :).

I’m a weak woman. There was a 3 for 2 offer on suncare products on a Portuguese beauty website, and I caved and got myself two self tanner products, and this compact to make the 3 for 2. Even though I knew nothing about the compact and don’t really use self tanner.

SkinCeuticals review: Clariflying Clay Masque, Gentle Cleanser and C E Ferulic Serum

SkinCeuticals review: Clariflying Clay Masque, Gentle Cleanser and C E Ferulic Serum

SkinCeuticals is a brand that markets itself as “advanced skincare backed by science”. They divide their range in three major categories: Prevent, Protect and Correct. They’re a very clinical, no fluff no fuss brand, that doesn’t claim miracles and takes packaging into consideration to best preserve the active ingredients of their line – in this sense it reminds me of The Ordinary. In the price sense, it doesn’t. They ain’t cheap.
