This product is intended for people with acne-prone skin. It’s a good alternative for those who can’t or don’t want to use conventional cleansing oils. The ingredients list is modest, there are emulsifiers, moisturising agents, solvents, and preservatives. No fragrance or dyes; the product smells like glycerine mixed with ethanol. It doesn’t cause any dryness… Read More Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Liquid – Review
Last year, I began to skip cleansing my face in the morning and use toner instead. It seems to work for my skin, so I continue doing that.

The toner includes tranexamic acid as its main… Read More Shiseido Aqua Label White Care Lotion – Review
There has been an influx of low-budget brands promising affordable skincare loaded with active ingredients in recent years. Such marketing usually lures us because the more, the better. Right?! But, anyone could fix up similar concoctions in their kitchens and probably for less. You can dump heaps of ingredients into a formula, but it doesn’t mean that a product will work.… Read More Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Wash – Review
When it comes to sunscreens, we all know that sometimes they tend to be shiny. It happens either because of their oily base or the sebum production, which increases in hot weather, and it’s when my face powders become helpful. I usually use regular non-SPF powders, but I thought I would use a specific powder… Read More Kokuryudo Privacy UV Face Powder SPF 50 – Review
This summer hasn’t been too blazing in Italy so far. Unfortunately, though, the hottest days are yet to arrive, which supposedly will happen this weekend.

This Jelly is one of the last few active products that I will review this year. If you follow me on Instagram, then you may know that I was prescribed a hydroquinone cream in June, so this is the ultimate product that I had managed to squeeze in for trialing before I had to start the treatment.… Read More Transino Whitening Jelly Lotion – Review
I don’t usually write about skincare marketed for men. I know there are some histological differences between male and female skin. Still, at the end of the day, the division in the skincare industry is about marketing strategies and nothing else. This product is no exception; it will suit everyone. The formula combines zinc oxide… Read More Kao Nivea Men UV Protector SPF50+ – Review
This moisturiser is also known under the name ‘Cetaphil Pro Moisturising Night Cream’, that’s the name chosen for the European market.

I know I always say in my reviews that I wouldn’t bother using toners which require cotton pads unless they include exfoliating acids, but this product is different – it isn’t just a toner. This toner, or softener as such products are called in Japan, contains an interesting mix of ingredients. There are many components… Read More Shiseido Future Solution LX Concentrated Balancing Softener – Review
This product is upsetting on so many levels, the best way to describe it would be: the price is steep, and the results are meagre.
