REVIEW Ren Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel

This Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel (£11.20) by Ren was the first cleansing gel I bought when I decided to discard all the sulfates from my skincare routine (I've thrown away all the products I had that contained this substance). I chose REN exactly for their more clean choice of ingredients. 


REVIEW Nourish Balance Nutritious Peptide Serum

I'm definitely a serum kinda' gal. I see the serum as the lingerie of our skincare routine and like I would never get dressed without underwear, I would never wear a cream without a serum first and this Balancing Serum by Nourish as been a favorite of mine since I started to use it. 


REVIEW Aromatherapy Associates Soothing Cleansing Balm

I know the blog has been a little dead for the last few months and I could make up a thousands excuses for that to have happened but the truth is I just didn't feel like blogging for a long time. Today I woke up with the urge to write a review so here it is, for those who still want to read what i write :) 


My love affair with Leonor Greyl

Almost a year ago I made the wise decision to stop using products with silicone on my hair and I literally threw away over £200 worth of hair products and then realized I had nothing to wash/condition and style my hair with and had 2 days to find something, before my hair turned into a messy grease ball.

Why you should be putting oils on yo' face

In this day and age I find it really hard to believe that there's brands out that tell people not to put oil on their faces, particularly if they have oily skin! I mean c'mon people!!!

In order to be healthy all skin types, including oily, need a balance of water and oil and the right oil can be especially beneficial oily skin as it balances the oil production. You fight fire with fire, if you give your skin the oils it needs, it won't need to produce as much sebum. Most people think they have oily skin but what they have is unbalanced skin that is dehydrated and so it produces more oil to try and balance itself.
