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?!

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.

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 …

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Age Support Face Cream | Review

Hey everyone, just a quick skin care product review today. I would like to talk about Emma Hardie Amazing Face Age Support Face Cream in this post. I have been using it as my night cream for a while. So I guess it’s time to share. It’s an UK brand. So it’s not easy to get it in Australia. I bought it from cultbeauty website from UK. Then, I found ASOS is selling products from this brand as well. I kinda like their principle to develop products that can help firm and plump skin without using harsh ingredients. I used to think I don’t care about the chemical ingredients as long as it works on my skin. However, lately, I have become more and more interested in skin care products with natural or healthy ingredients. Certainly, it has to deliver what I want. What they say about it: “An intense super-hydrating and lifting treatment creme that helps to give the skin back its youthful glow. A powerful blend of marine and botanical extracts combined with …

Last day of July! I have no idea how and where July has gone. I still remember how I felt when it was January…All right, that’s enough. Let’s look forward. Today I want to present you the Milk & Co face cleanser, It’s not a new product, but it’s new to me. I have been using it nonstop lately. Although I had another post planned, I just love this one too much that I have to tell you all about it. 🙂 I don’t particular like foaming cleanser since I have dry skin. However, I was surprised by this one. I fell in love right away when I used it for the first time. Who can blame me? You will love the smell of this cleanser. It does not dry out my skin, and it has 95% naturally derived ingredients. What they say about it: “A natural based foaming cleanser to clear away the day and get you ready for the next.  With scents of essential geranium oil, ylang ylang and extracts of hibiscus flower …

Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream | Review

Such a windy today. I am sitting in my little study. I can hear the wind roaring. Lucky, I have a day off. I can hide in my cosy room and watch the tree branches sway and the leaves dance in the wind. I have never been a fan for a windy winter day. It just make my dry skin feel even more drying. Foundation wouldn’t stay put. Then, everything else would become a disaster. Last year, I started using Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream during winter. It has become my holy grail winter day cream ever since. I don’t remember how I came across this cream, but I have been loving it. I know it’s not a new product, but I would recommend it for the ones who have dry skin to try it. Aesop claims Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating cream is “ a nourishing daily moisturising cream for dry or sensitive skin. The complex blend of nut and plant extracts in this extensively researched formulation absorbs swiftly, providing anti-oxidant fortification and richly nourishing hydration …
