ISDIN FotoUltra Age Repair SPF 50 and Fusion Fluid Mineral SPF 50

ISDIN FotoUltra Age Repair SPF 50

Even if it’s winter, we’re still diligently applying facial SPF, right? In my case, since I live where the sun lives almost year round, today I talk suncare, specifically ISDIN’s: Fusion Fluid Mineral and Foto Ultra Age Repair. ISDIN Fusion Fluid Mineral SPF 50 This facial sunscreen belongs to the same range as the better-known ISDIN Fusion Water, which I love and recommend almost without reservation for oily to combination skins in the summer… and […]

The Hype Stuff: Pixi Glow Tonic & GlamGlow FlashMud Brightening Treatment

GlamGlow FlashMud Brightening Treatment Pixi Glow Tonic

Have you been naughty or nice during the post-holiday sales? I’ve been a perfect saint, if I do say so myself, though that’s mainly because it’s too cold for me to go out, and besides, I have stuff in my stash that I want to use up first. Still, for anyone who’s thinking of taking a small bite or two of the sales these days, today I talk about a couple travel-sized reviews. Pixi Glow […]

ISDIN Fusion Water SPF 50 & Interapothek Sunscreen Milk

ISDIN Fusion Water SPF 50 and Interapothek sunscreen

I tried the sunscreens shown in today’s review during the last summer, and while I’m at it, I’ll just  remind my dear readers what we all know, or ought to know, at this point: winter doesn’t mean you can keep your guard down, and skip sun protection. Particularly if you live in a place like mine, where most days are clear and bright and sunny despite the cold. Interapothek Sunscreen Milk SPF 50 Interapothek isn’t […]

Too Cool For School Egg Mousse Pack & Pumpkin Sleeping Pack

Too Cool For School Egg Mousse Pack

I have to say, I feel kind of sheepish about having Too Cool For School products in my routine, given that, as the name indicates, this brand’s geared toward the schoolgirl-aged, or at the most the college crowd; I am neither of these things, and I haven’t been for some time. Still, I’d had my eye on the Too Cool For School Egg Mousse Pack for a while, only I refused to pay what Sephora […]

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin & Niacinamide. Also, days of sound and fury in Deciem

The Ordinary Niacinamida y Alpha Arbutin

I had this half-written post lying around for a while, until last week’s events in the beautysphere gave me the push to get it finished… in a nutshell, Brandon Truaxe’s been on full-on poo-flinging monkey mode for months, and to make a long, angsty story short, it looks like Truaxe got the axe (sorry, I just had to… ) and is no longer at the helm of Deciem. (Or, according to unsubstantiated rumors floating on […]

Midsummer Review: TH Pharma SPF 50+ Body Spray & Facial Sunscreen

TH Pharma SPF 50+

Yay, summer! This is the most wonderful time of the year as far as I’m concerned; despite my pseudonym of choice, I’m more of a desert snake, because it takes seriously infernal heat to bother me (and I don’t even go swimming in the pool or at the beach, nor turn on the AC very often), and also because the misery of the summer haters and their constant stream of whine about the heat (oh, […]

Spring sheetmasking: SexyLook Moisturizing Black Mask & MediHeal Mask Dress Code Blue

SexyLook Moisturizing Black Mask

Wedding and banquet season is in full swing in my part of the world, so it’s convenient to have some tricks up your sleeve prior to the odd invite that may drop in your mailbox. So if you’re into sheetmasking, make yourself comfortable… I’m going to go ahead and say that, after trying these sheet masks, I absolutely recommend them both for pre-party preparations. MediHeal Mask Dress Code Blue Though these can be found in […]

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 & Douglas Naturals lipbalm

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 […]
