Deciem Haul - The Ordinary & NIOD

I did a massive Deciem haul and I have no regrets!

Review: Le Tan Uber Dark with Marula Oil

I don't do many reviews on self tanners because I'm allergic to most that I've tried. I normally get a really annoying rash that lasts 2-4 days only on certain areas of my body - inner thighs and arms. 

There are a few gradual tanners that I don't really react much to, but the colour pay off is nothing to write home about. 

My legs also get super itchy in winter if I don't slather on moisturiser religiously. So I wondered is there a link to dry skin and self-tanners (i.e. do self tanners dry out your skin?). After doing a bit of research, it seems like DHA commonly found in self tanners can be dehydrating.

When Le Tan released their new Uber Dark range, I thought I'd give the Marula Oil version a go, as it's meant to be more hydrating than the other ones in the Uber Dark range.

Review: Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair 1%

The Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair 1% is a professional strength retinol treatment that is new addition to Dermalogica's AGE smart range. 

It is a customisable formula, as you can dial down the concentration with the use of the buffer cream, which is included in the box. It claims to reduce the appearance of skin ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and combat free radical damage.

Review: The Ordinary Serum Foundation

I have finally gotten my hands on The Ordinary Serum Foundation and thought I'd do a quick review and comparison with the Coverage Foundation.

Empties - July 2017

I realise that it's not the end of July yet, but I thought a better way to showcase empties is doing them in smaller doses rather than a huge long post.  So I will be doing empties when I accumulate a handful of products rather than wait till the end of the month.

I got a tattoo... on my face!?!

Ok so maybe it wasn't a tattoo, like a tear drop. But I did get my brows micro-bladed/feathered a bit over two weeks ago. I hope this blog post will be useful for those who are thinking about getting it done too. 
Note: There is a fairly gross picture towards the end of this post.

Review: Radical Skincare Express Delivery Enzyme Peel

I have been searching for a good peel for the longest time. When I saw this on Mecca a few months ago, it was out of stock - and it seemed like it has been that way for a long time from the Q&As on the page. It also has 15 reviews, all of which have rated this product 5 stars. So naturally, this went on my wishlist and I have been anxiously waiting for this to come back in stock so I can give it a whirl myself. It's been about 3 weeks now since I've purchased this, and I am so ready to write a review.

Sephora (Aus) Haul

So I "stumbled" into Sephora the other day, and they had a further 20% off sale. Naturally, I HAD to pick up things.
