First Aid Beauty Resurfacing Liquid

First Aid Beauty have recently launched a new product – the Resurfacing Liquid 10% AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), which I have been testing out for the last month.

The ‘Cleaner’ Product Challenge


In my post from a couple of weeks ago I had mentioned that I was testing out a new cleaner beauty routine. Looking for products with better-for-you ingredients that work well. I started putting everything into one post but it was starting to become the world’s longest blog post so I’ve split everything into two categories; Face Skincare/Makeup and Body Products….and it’s still a lengthy read so I’ll summarize the list at the beginning and for those who are interested in a longer in depth review, keep reading below.

The Best Eye Cream Discovery


I’ve been having some severely dry skin around my left eye recently. It seemed to be getting progressively worse and more red and irritated by the day. No matter what eye cream I tried, nothing seemed to fix this issue and to be honest, I think a lot of it is from lack of sleep. I basically haven’t slept for more than a 4-5 hour stretch at one time in over 7 months now (I don’t know who these people are that have babies who “sleep through the night” from a young age, I certainly don’t have one of those babies and am still waiting for 7-8 hours just once!).

The ‘Cleaner’ Product Challenge and My New App Addiction

I’ve decided to challenge myself for a month and switch over to using more clean products that are better for you. Perhaps not the most glamorous or luxurious beauty routine but I’ve decided that if I could even find one or two products that are cleaner and work well then I’d like to switch over on a regular basis. It’s also an opportunity to explore some products that I wouldn’t typically try. Continue reading “The ‘Cleaner’ Product Challenge and My New App Addiction”

Hello FAB Superfruit Correcting Cushion Review

So my curiosity finally got the better of me and although the Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer from Hello FAB wasn’t really suited to me, I couldn’t not test the Superfruit Color Correcting Cushion.

I did wait until the product had landed in store so I could go and play with it instead of blindly ordering online. I was actually quite impressed with the light and fresh texture and luminous but non-shiny finish. So here I am, back with another review from the Hello FAB line.  Continue reading “Hello FAB Superfruit Correcting Cushion Review”
