Biotherm Blue Therapy Accelerate Serum | Review

I don’t think I have posted a review for the Biotherm Blue Therapy Accelerate serum. I have almost finished the entire bottle. Guess it’s time to talk about it. Somehow I always like this brand. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to purchase their products in Australia, at least in Brisbane. This is an anti-ageing repairing serum. It claims that it will help to reduce winkles, improve firmness and restore the youth of your skin. Well, I don’t believe any products can really restore the youth of my skin. However, I am obsessed with clear and luminous skin which gives your skin a youthful look. That’s all I am asking for from an anti-ageing serum. What they say about this product: “Rejuvenating serum to reduce visible signs of aging: fine lines – smoothing – firmness…oil-in-water dispersion system. Concentrated in extract of “Algae of Youth”, which delivers powerful hydrating capabilities that counter signs of aging, day after day. Fine lines appear smoothed, complexion is radiant, and facial skin contours feel tighter for a visible transformation.” Sounds pretty …

Dr. Jackson’s 02 Night Cream|Review

One of my friends raved about this night cream. I am always curious about a good night cream for dry skin, and I love Dr. Jackson’s 07 Face Wash. It has been my morning cleanser for a while. Its citrus scent smells refreshing and divine. It certainly wakes me up every morning. From what I learned, all their products are vegan and free from parabens, sulphates, artificial fragrances and synthetic ingredients. Plus, I really have a good feeling about this brand. Maybe it’s because of its packaging. They are all rather unpretentious. If it’s a trick, it certainly works on me. 😉 What they say about this product: “Rich, repairing nighttime formula. It is perfect for nighttime use, has long-lasting hydrating effects (clinical trials have proved that just one application works its moisturising magic on the skin for up to eight hours!). It is packed full of natural ingredients that work in harmony to nourish and soften the skin . Make this replenishing formula part of your bedtime rituals to enrich the skin and create an …

Little Things I Have Been Loving

Hey lovelies, it has been a long time since I did a favourite post. I have some beauty products, a new favourite fragrance, and some other bits and bobs. I love sharing favourite things with my friends.  It’s just so exciting! 🙂 Replica Beach Walk EDT Maison Margiela I can’t tell you enough how much I love this one. It has become my every day scent since I bought it. It’s light, refreshing, and warm. It’s the smell of summer breeze and feeling of the afternoon sun on your skin. The coconut scent takes me to the golden sand beach every time when I wear it. I guess that’s why it’s called “Beach Walk“. It makes me feel cosy and relaxed. Buxom Cosmetic Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick – Burning Desire I came across this lipstick about a month ago. As it’s still winter here in Australia, I always love a bold red lippy in the cold season. It’s really long-lasting and lightweight. The lipstick is super pigmented. I love the satin finish. I …

OSKIA Renaissance Mask | Review

Beauty Shortlist Awards, The Natural Health Beauty Awards,  Anti-ageing Beauty Bible, UK Beauty Awards, you name it. I heard about OSKIA Renaissance Mask for a long time. Finally, I decided I had to try it. I can’t have a nice skin mask slip through my fingers. That would be a crime! Ok, so I went online and ordered it few months ago. It arrived and sat on my shelf for few weeks. Why didn’t I try it immediately? I don’t know…weird.  Eventually I tried it, and I loved it right away. What a surprise?! What they say about this product: “Plumping and brightening enzyme mask for all skin types. A peel in a balm. For immediate spa facial results and long term anti-ageing & brightening.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (Anti-wrinkle day cream)| Review

Hey lovelies, happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s March already! Somehow these days I always feel that I don’t have enough time to do everything.  It has proven this year is really a busy year for me. Anyway, I have a skin care product review today, which is for Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream – Anti-wrinkle day cream. If you have followed me for a while, you probably remember I did a review for Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream last year. Elemis is a UK luxury skincare brand. The Pro-collagen Marine Cream is an award-winning day cream. It was the Best Beauty Stylist winner in 2016 and Best for Mature Skin winner for 2017. I have almost finished this one. You will see in the photo. I gotta say I have been enjoying it. What they say about this product: “Clinically proven the powerful anti-ageing ingredients have been shown to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness, tone and hydration in 14 days. The unique Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica is blended with Ginkgo Biloba providing superior free-radical protection has been …

Qualikos BioQ Macadamia Body Butter | Review

If you know me, I cannot live without body butter. When we travelled in Sicily, I used up my body shop body butter. I couldn’t find it anywhere. What a disaster! Well, I had to get something. That’s how I came across the Qualikos BioQ body butter. It’s quite hard to find information about this company, especially when I don’t speak Italian at all. Thanks to Google translate! Here is what I found out. Qualikos is an Italian company that manufactures ecofriendly beauty products, including personal care, body care, hair care, bath and shower products. BioQ is their certified organic line of products. Only natural ingredients from organic farming are used. All products are free of PEG , parabens, petrolatum, SLS paraffin, SLES, silicons and artificial colours. What they say about the product: “Nourishing body butter, based on Macadamia oil and Shea butter. Rich and pleasant to massage, it leaves the skin soft and velvety. Aloe extract has a soothing action while Ginko biloba extract prevents skin aging. A sweet-scented butter that melts in contact with the skin. Free …

Zelens Z Luminous Brightening Serum | Review

Hey lovelies, how’s the week so far? My day started from going to our local shopping mall in very early hours to get few things. Although I was trying to avoid the crowd, unfortunately it was very unsuccessful at all. It took me ages to get in and out. I think it will be my last trip to the mall for this year. If I really must get something, I think I will just go online. Thanks for the internet, so convenient. Anyway, I have a review for you today. If you follow me for a while, you probably know I love Zelens Absolute Face oil. It has been a staple of my skin care routine. I haven’t found anything works better than that. Because of my love to the oil, I decided to try out the Zelens Z luminous Brightening serum. I wanted to see if it works on my skin. I bought the serum after I came back from our trip. I have been using it for about a month now. I can …

How to Choose Between Laser Skincare Options

Have you ever considered Laser Skincare Options for your skin problems? I know I have. I am still considering Laser treatment for the stubborn pigmentation on my cheeks. Few skincare procedures are anywhere near as well-known as laser treatments. Yet, many people still don’t fully understand how laser treatments work or how one laser device varies from another. You must have an understanding of those things before you can choose between laser skincare options for anti-aging and properly treat your skin concerns. A Comparison of Ablative and Non-Ablative Laser Devices Traditional laser treatments are typically thought of as ablative (treating the skin’s surface) and non-ablative (treating deeper skin layers). While non-ablative treatments typically have no impact on the epidermis, or outer skin layer, ablative treatments can either focus on the surface or impact multiple skin layers, depending on their intensity and purpose. An ablative laser device often strips away surface skin cells, many of which are already dead. It can also help to unblock pores by removing debris that would otherwise clog them. In addition …

Indie Lee COQ – 10 Toner|Review

Hello lovely people, another Monday! I hope you are all doing well. Here is probably my first toner review. I heard about Indie Lee COQ-10 toner from Caroline Hirons’s YouTube channel. She was raving about it on her YouTube channel and her blog. It was in her Cultbeauty beauty box as well, I think. My toner was almost used up last month. I thought I should give it a try since she recommended it to ‘normal to dry’ skin types. I did a little bit research on it as well. It’s a natural product and alcohol, acids, artificial fragrance, parabens free. There are quite a lot of good reviews about it. Many people said it worked wonder on their dry skin. I was hoping I would see same result on my skin too, especially during the change of seasons. My dry skin could use some help. What they say about the product: “An alcohol free, skin-balancing toner formulated with the powerful antioxidant CoQ-10. The hydrating and refreshing mixture diminishes the appearance of pores and balance …

Odacite Hyperpigmentation Serum Concentrate (Papaya+Geranium) |Review

If you have been following me for a while, you probably know I have hyperpigmentation problem. I am a little bit paranoia about sun damage, and I am very keen to try out products that claim to solve pigmentation problem. I came across Odacite Hyperpigmentation Papaya Geranium Serum Concentrate a while ago from cultbeauty.co.uk. When I got a voucher from them, I decided to spend on this one. Odacite products are all made in California. No Fillers, parabens, Nanoparticles, Petrochemicals, PEG, Synthetic perfumes, Dyes or Phenoxyethanol. In other words, it’s a clean brand. Their serum concentrates are super concentrate pure plant products. The idea behind it is customizing the product to different skin concerns. I do like the idea. What they say about the product: “Dark spot corrector formulated to fade brown spots and prevent the apparition of further skin pigmentation. Papaya fruit enzymes dissolve dead skin cells unveiling a fresh and more even-toned glow. Geranium and Lemon oils combine to further encourage a more evened-out skin tone and provide wrinkle reduction. In aromatherapy, Geranium oil is known …
