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.

Brand Review | Ecooking (day cream, eye cream, vitamin C serum, neck cream, multi balm, foot cream)

Brand Review | Ecooking (day cream, eye cream, vitamin C serum, neck cream, multi balm, foot cream)

Ecooking is a Danish brand created by an Tina Søgaard, who was already working in the beauty industry before she started creating these products in her kitchen, bringing in raw ingredients from the laboratories she worked on (hence the name). These products have developed into an environmentally conscious, “clean” skincare brand. Uh oh.

Review | The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% and How to Use It

Review | The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% and How to Use It

This product is my best skincare “secret”. So underrated. A lot of people just don’t like it. And I get it. She’s not easy to get to know. She’s stings. Literally. But if you give her a chance, you’ll love her.

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.

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.

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.
