Review – Philosophy Resurface – The Microdelivery Dual-Phase Peel Set

Philosophy’s Microdelivery Dual-Phase Peel and I go back a long way. In fact, I think that I first starting using this product nearly 10 years ago when my elder sister bought it. Throughout the years, I’ve repurchased it many times and it is one of the few products that truly wow me every time I use it. So I thought that I should share my … Read More Review – Philosophy Resurface – The Microdelivery Dual-Phase Peel Set

Unboxing Caroline Hirons x Cult Beauty Box (Dec 17)

This is the season of mindless consumption and I gave in to my inner hedonist and did all kinds of damage to my credit card. I know that I’ll be groaning when I get my credit card bills next month but hey, at least I’ll be groaning with (hopefully) gloriously radiant skin! I finally bought the Dec 17 edition of the famed Cult Beauty … Read More Unboxing Caroline Hirons x Cult Beauty Box (Dec 17)

Review – Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel (Packettes)

I bought the normal strength version of the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel to see how it compares with the extra strength version. I had previously used the extra strength version and loved it to bits! Hence I thought that I should do a comparison post for you guys in case you were pondering which strength you should get. In any case, … Read More Review – Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel (Packettes)

Review – The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

The Ordinary is a brand under the DECIEM umbrella that exploded onto the skincare scene in 2016. Its range of skincare is based on no-frills functional skincare products at low prices. The brand eschews unnecessary packaging and fancy-sounding exotic ingredients for active ingredients that are actually proven to work, such as retinol, vitamin c, and hyaluronic acid etc. In fact, I had actually bought … Read More Review – The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

Review – Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Peel

Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Peel was another product that I picked up when Cult Beauty was offering their Summer Goody Bag 2017 with a purchase of more than £110.

Review – Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peel

Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peel is a product which I’ve been lemming over for the longest time. However, it’s pretty expensive and since I’ve already have so many unopened products waiting for me to use, I  really couldn’t justify buying it. BUT.. Cult Beauty had a summer goody bag promotion back in June 2017 and I AM A GONER! I … Read More Review – Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peel

Review – Mizon AHA & BHA Daily Clean Toner

It claims to … Read More Review – Mizon AHA & BHA Daily Clean Toner

Review – PIXI Glow Peel Pads

I bought the PIXI Glow Peel Pads about a few months ago because I was curious about how it compares to the relatively more famous PIXI Glow Tonic. Instead of being in a liquid toner form, this product comes in pre-soaked pads that you can just wipe all over your face. However, you’ll need to note that this is a rinse off product unlike … Read More Review – PIXI Glow Peel Pads

Review – Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 Original “1970”

The Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 is such a classic cult product with celebrities like Madonna, Brad Pitt and Sharon Stone and many beauty editors professing their love for it. However, it’s such a notoriously difficult product to find, not to mention buying. It’s traditionally only sold in spas and you need a personal consultation to purchase it. I don’t even think that they put any money into … Read More Review – Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 Original “1970”
