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.

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

My Experiment with Differin 0.1% + Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%

Before I decided to write this post, I’ve actually been debating with myself on whether I should even start writing this. The thing is that I’ve tried to use both products (the Differin 0.1% gel and the Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%) in a way that’s never been indicated on the product packaging or its leaflet so it’s kind of an unorthodox method of using them. However, … Read More My Experiment with Differin 0.1% + Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%

Review – Pestle & Mortar Superstar Retinol Night Oil

Photo taken from official website pestleandmortar.com I came across the Irish brand Pestle & Mortar when Caroline Hirons (the super famous UK skincare blogger) claimed that their Superstar Retinol Night Oil is “the best retinol I’ve used outside of a prescription“. With a claim like that, and especially from one who’s known to be a skincare guru, how could I not check that product out?! … Read More Review – Pestle & Mortar Superstar Retinol Night Oil
