Bioré UV Aqua Rich Essence SPF 50 / PA++++ & ISDIN SPF 40 Lip Balm

Bioré UV Aqua Rich Essence & ISDIN SPF 40 lip sunscreen

ISDIN SPF 40 Lip Balm It’s been a bit uphill for me to write this review, because, while I don’t find any serious cons about this product, I don’t really have much to say about it, either. And I generally like the suncare options from this Spanish brand. Anyway, the ISDIN SPF 40 lip balm is a fine product that does what it’s supposed to do, with no added frills or fun. It’s a firm […]

Organic Rose Otto Lip Serum by Dr. Organic & Douglas Naturals lipbalm

Organic Rose Otto Lip Serum by Dr. Organic

I looove roses, I do, but as soon as Valentine’s starts creeping round social media and shop windows, suddenly the world is all via GIPHY But! the truth is that deep down I find collective nonsense like this entertaining, so I’m playing too, and today I bring roses… well, not really: I do bring lipbalm, though, which is a necessity for me at this time of the year; lately I’ve been using this Douglas Naturals […]

Review: The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% & Lactic Acid 10% + HA

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution

Isn’t everybody just sick of seeing The Ordinary all over SM and beyond? There simply isn’t a nook or cranny in the beauty blogosphere where this brand hasn’t gotten to; their products are like glitter, or like cockroaches (and their tune), or like Madonna, and her tunes… nevertheless, I haven’t escaped either: I’ve been using their Lactic Acid 10% and their Salicylic Acid 2% for months now. I’ve no problem admitting that I’m a fangirl […]

🌻Love You, Love You Not… La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + & Anthelios SPF 50+

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo +

One of these products I like very much, the other… not. In fact, I can’t bring myself to apply the latter now, so I stopped using it, or rather, I don’t use it on my face, which is what is made for. The product in question is La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 50+ invisible face mist. I bought this one at the end of summer, when days were still long, so when it was time for […]

Peter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic Set

Peter Thomas Roth mask set

Other than my regular pore-cleaning clay masks, I use masques maybe once in a blue moon, so when I saw this Peter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic sample pack for sale at Sephora, I couldn’t grab it fast enough: this format was made for me, commitment-phobe and lover of sample sizes that I am. The rare times I use the “fancier” kind of masques is more for the “spa” experience (and a touch of superstition) […]

Nessie does DECIEM: The Ordinary Retinol 1% and Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

The Ordinary Retinol 1% and Hyaluronic Acid 2%

Not long ago, I decided to give in and see what was all the fuss about The Ordinary, and I may just be the last beauty blogger to have done so… I can hear a mother’s voice in my head saying: “if the other bloggers jump off a bridge, would you do it too?”. Well, yes, it looks that way… there’s not much about left to be said about this Canadian, cruelty-free, and highly affordable […]

Sun protection & sultry looks: Mercadona SPF 50 sun lotion for sensitive skin + summer essentials

Mercadona sun lotion SPF 50

Curiously enough, even though I await summer eagerly all year, I’m also all for being exposed to bosses, relatives and sunshine as little as possible… other than that, I enjoy sultry weather and the state of mind that comes with it, hanging out outdoors with a few chosen… and since my tolerance to heat is high 😈 I enjoy the Schadenfreude I get from seeing others suffer as I suffer in wintertime, while I’m all: […]

Lip color and care: Essence lipstick & Dizao Organics lipbalm

Dizao Organics Sea Buckthorn Replenishing Lipbalm

As a rule, I’m all about gloriously tacky colors and piling up on the eye makeup, while being very conservative and dull with lip products. For a self-confessed lover of makeup, I actually don’t have many lip color products (four at last count, if you’re curious), and half of those are soft nudey pinks. But one fine evening in a beauty shop, I ran into this pretty plum lipstick by Essence that decided to just […]

Bamboo Beauty Review: Ecotools Brushes and TONYMOLY Bamboo Gel

TONYMOLY Bamboo Cool Water Soothing Gel

I’ve been eyeing the Ecotools brushes for ages, and now these are mine mine mine… there isn’t much more left to be said about this brand, which has certainly become popular in the Spanish beauty blogosphere and beyond, with good reason: they are great value for the price, and as eco-friendly as a consumer product can get. As for the TONYMOLY bamboo gel, I bought this after an unfortunate incident with a DIY mask (an […]

Keep Cool, Fool: Ecobeauty Micellar Water and Dewytree Hyaluronic Acid Sheetmask

Ecobeauty micellar water & Dewytree sheetmask

This summer, as usual, I’m not having the least trouble in attaining the world-famous goal of 8 glasses of water a day, everyday… I keep a steady supply within reach at all times; nevertheless, despite my enormous intake of water, I’m not seeing the fabulous changes on my skin that so many sybils of the beauty world promise… oh well, another beauty myth that just doesn’t work for me for whatever reason. Anyway, lately the […]

Summer Blues: Diadermine makeup remover & Prestige Cosmetics eyeliners

Prestige Cosmetics Total Intensity Eyeliners

  It’s officially summer as of today, and I say officially because where I live it’s been summer for weeks already… not that I’m complaining, I’m one of those strange creatures that are pretty much unaffected by deadly heat, in fact, I feel like starting a million things and projects… however, finishing what I start is another story. Anyway, on to the reviews! Diadermine eye makeup remover This is the makeup remover I typically have […]
