I am not sure what to say about this product, there are a lot of claims, but not many results. My first issues arise with the ingredients of this serum. It is supposed to be spot and blemish (in my understanding hyperpigmentation) clearing, but there isn’t enough in the formula to deliver these effects. We… Read More CosRx AC Collection Blemish Spot Clearing Serum – Review

Neostrata are the OG of acid game. This product contains a pretty short, but potent list of ingredients, which… Read More Neostrata Gel Plus – Review
CeraVe’s cleansers divide people some like the Hydrating one, some the Foaming one. Everyone has a favourite; mine is the Foaming Cleanser. I have no idea how people use the other cleanser – it’s thick and doesn’t wash off. But, if you like it, then carry on using it. This cleanser, like most of CeraVe’s… Read More CeraVe Foaming Cleanser – Review
I usually don’t shop from Estee Lauder, they don’t carry many products that catch my attention, but this one is amazing. I notice quite a lot of inspiration from Asian beauty in this product, and let me explain to you why. Estee Lauder’s description of the product: Sheer fresh moisture without excess shine. Supercharges skin… Read More Estee Lauder Nutritious Micro-Algae Pore Minimizing Hydra Lotion – Review
June is Acne Awareness Month and having suffered from acne myself, I take the issue very seriously and personally. In my posts, I call acne a disease, a skin condition or an ailment, but in reality, it’s a skin disease, and like all disorders, it should be treated by a doctor, more specifically a dermatologist.… Read More How to Alleviate Acne Symptoms?
This is another BHA cleanser that I am enjoying. After reviewing Sylveco’s cleanser, I wanted to find a product that would be available to more people, and I think this one hits the spot. This product seems to have the gentlest formula amongst all Neutrogena’s salicylic acid face washes, as it doesn’t contain any sulphates.… Read More Neutrogena Clear & Defend Facial Wash– Review
I get irritated when I think of this product; it is so terrible. I have given it a fair chance, even twice. It is a mattifying sunscreen, and usually, I would buy SPF 30, but it isn’t available, so I’ve opted for SPF 50+. Now I regret it. This sunscreen was formulated for acne-prone skin.… Read More Avène CLEANANCE SOLAIRE SPF 50+ – Review
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which is excellent for many skin types. It improves the suppleness, firmness, also brightens, and overall rejuvenates the skin. The continuous use of products containing glycolic acid can better the appearance of enlarged pores, and research shows that it is helpful in acne treatment. It has a… Read More Pixi Glow Peel Pads – Review
This is an exciting one; it’s like a guilty pleasure. It’s a foaming gel cleanser, and you can use it as often as you like. How many times have you heard that foaming cleansers are bad for your skin? I bet more than a hundred times. It’s true; foaming face washes aren’t the best for… Read More CosRx Low pH Good Morning Cleanser – Review
Melano CC Essence is one of my favourite vitamin C serums. However, I’d never tried anything else from the line, this why I bought the accompanying sheet masks from the line. I finished using the entire box of Rohto Melano CC Essence Face Masks on 18 August (I know this review is overdue) and the… Read More Melano CC Essence Face Masks – Review
Sylveco is a small, Polish brand producing ‘natural’ skincare based on plants without all those nasties. You would call it an indie brand, I suppose. Though, it’s a relatively affordable one. You would suspect that their products are full of fragrance and essential oils, in amounts that can cause irritation. However, it’s not the case… Read More Sylveco Chamomile Face Wash – Review
It took me so long to write my first review on a (beta hydroxy acid) BHA product, and I don’t know why. The most known BHA is salicylic acid, and it’s simply one of my favourite acids. I like azelaic, lactic, glycolic, and salicylic acids the most. Don’t mention mandalic acid, in my opinion, it’s… Read More Stridex Strength Medicated Pads – Review
