Skincare Sunday: Alpha H Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream

A few weeks ago, I shared that my skin had become rather dry of late. With dryness usually comes dullness – an awful combination!! For me, the best way to combat dull skin is to ensure you have a good exfoliation system within your skincare routine so, when the amazing gals at Alpha H sent across the newest launch, an exfoliating and resurfacing cleanser, I couldn’t wait to test it out to see if it could bring back my healthy glow.

Everything that Alpha H seem to touch turns to gold. Their Liquid Gold is second to none at clarifying and brightening the skin and I have heard amazing things about their Instant Facial and Balancing Eye Complex.

So did this new launch live up to the extensive claims?

Skincare Sunday: Emma Hardie Moringa Renewal Treatment Mask

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing balm is an absolute cult beauty product. I don’t know anybody who has tried it and not loved it, I’m certain that you will find a pot of this cult balm in every skincare guru’s bathroom cabinet. I myself am a huge fan of her skincare products, and find that anything that i’ve tried in the past has truly worked and delivered what it promised.

So, when I was offered the chance to try out the newest launch from the brand, I jumped at the chance.

Is it going to be another cult product?

Skincare Sunday- Ophrys Skincare Line

I’m a skincare junkie. There’s no denying it. And if there is a cure, I actually don’t want it.

Trying out new skincare products and lines is one of my absolute favourite things to do. That joy of discovering a new hero product is so exciting to me. So when the lovely guys at Ophrys contacted me and asked me to try out their new line, I couldn’t say no.

The brand is a dermal skincare company based in Switzerland and the products are all very sciencey utilising the brand’s patented hydration technology, Mini Hax!

So what does that mean?

In a nutshell the products use that gem of an ingredient, hyaluronic acid, except this one is a low molecular hyaluronic acid. Put simply, the low molecular formula penetrates way deeper into the skin’s layers and than a standard hyaluronic acid which means much deeper hydration!

I met with the lovely Adam from the brand a while back and I have to be honest, he was beyond generous when he gave me the samples to try out. I have put them properly through their paces now so I’m ready to share my thoughts! (more…)

Skincare Sunday – My Skincare Journey with Therapie Clinic – Part 2 – Chemical Peel FAQs

I recently shared my first instalment of My Skincare Journey with Therapie Clinic letting you all know what I was embarking upon with them. If you missed it, you can catch up here.

Since then I have had two peels at the clinic in Belfast and I wanted to share a quick FAQ style post answering some of your questions that I’ve had from social media. (more…)

Crabtree and Evelyn: Rosewater and Pink Peppercorn Collection

It’s no secret that I love a nice scented product. If a bath and body product is unscented, I’m not naturally excited about it. So when this collection from Crabtree & Evelyn landed on my doorstep recently I couldn’t wait to get a sniff.

I haven’t tried anything from Crabtree and Evelyn before, even though there is a great store at Victoria Square in Belfast who are always advertising lovely treatments and treats for customers. I just never thought about popping in! And I call myself a product-obsessed beauty blogger? Shame on me!

Skincare Sunday: Temple Spa Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream Review

Happy Sunday! Sunday is my favourite day of the week as it is the one day that I try to keep to myself to unwind and recharge from the previous week. Usually that involves a bit of a pamper Sunday too and a treat for my skin.

When I was last kindly sent some goodies by Temple Spa, they included a pot of their popular Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream which I was intrigued to try as I had seen a lot about it online. I have been having a very stressful time recently Sammy dad is very unwell so was very open to the prospect that a moisturiser could also help me relax.
