L’Oreal Pure Clay mask

From time to time, I like doing a good face mask. Mostly I like using it to give my skin an extra cleanse or to add moisture. It all depends on what my skin needs at that moment what I like to use. When L’Oreal launched their face masks, I was instantly intrigued but wasn’t sure which one to get. Since the blue one promises to take care of blackheads and refines pores, I decided to pick this one up.  L'Oreal Pure Clay mask anti-imperfections seaweed extract review swatch

The Body Shop Skin Defence SPF 50

The Body Shop Skin Defence SPF 50

A good facial SPF is a product I have struggling to find. I last reviewed one that was recommended to me by a friend back in 2015. While that worked fine in terms of SPF, it sadly didn’t work well on my skin in combination with other skincare or under makeup. It was too rich and after giving it a consistent try, I found it pilled off. This meant I was back on the look out for a good face SPF that would not only protect my face from the sun, but also looks good under makeup and preferably works as part of my skincare routine. You can imagine how great I thought this TBS Skin Defence SPF might work for me as it promises to deliver just that.

After trying and loving a €2 face oil by Kruidvat, I knew it was time to try a more high end version. Since my love for TBS skincare is well known by now, it should come as no surprise that I wanted to try one by them first up. I have tried serums that represent an oil and come with a dropper before (e.g. by Kiehl’s and TBS), but apart from the Kruidvat Almond oil, I have never tried another straight up face oil. Time to remedy that! the body shop oils of life intensely revitalising facial oil review swatch skincare

After trying the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Skin Essence, I knew I wanted to try some alternatives. It was the first skin essence I tried and it was a product I had never used before. So what is a skin essence? It is a step in your skincare routine that you apply after cleansing but before moisturizing. The product helps to have your skincare sink into the skin much better. If you have dry skin like me, it’s an absolute life save. So how did I fare with this The Body Shop version?the body shop skin essence vitamin e aqua boost essence lotion review skincare swatch

Best Moisturizers for Sensitive Skin

Because I have sensitive skin and I can’t find enough reviews or information about products that work well, I have taken it upon myself to put some more information out there. Often I have tried recommended products and have found they don’t work. Even if those products are good for sensitive skin. So if you are like me and you are tired of trying product after product without many results than I hope this blog post helps.  best moisturizers for sensitive skin

Kiehl’s Calendula cleanser

Ever since trying a few Kiehl’s products after receiving some in a goodie bag, I have become quite the fan of many of their products. That said, however, you can always try more and Kiehl’s is really great with trial sizes. All you have to do is ask and you can try their products for free. I received a sample of their Calendula cleanser to try and here’s what I think of it.  kiehls kiehl's calendula face skincare cleanser review swatch
