best beauty products of 2016

The best and worst of 2016

While we all very likely will agree that 2016 was a pretty horrible year generally, I look at this year’s beauty experiences and guys, I don’t know. 2016 had some pretty fantastic products. Either new ones, or ones that weren’t new but new to me. There also were some pretty crap ones, too. Let’s have a look at the best beauty products of 2016, some un-favourites and the ones that were solidly meh.READ MORE

Beauty products for the zombie apocalypse

Beauty products for the zombie apocalypse

Halloween is a wonderful opportunity to look at darker topics than the ones that are usually covered here on the blog. I’m very happy that I can point out a serious issue that’s easy to overlook, with catastrophic results. You want to be prepared!!!!! It’s very important to think about this as early as possible. This is the reason I’ll write about the beauty products you need when the zombie apocalypse hits today.[1]READ MORE

Holy grails I buy again and again – skincare edition

Holy grail skincare, people. Holy grails. It was actually very easy to decide what’s going to be in this post – I just had to look into my backup drawer. “Backup drawer?!” I hear somebody explain incredulously. Yup, backup drawer – as I have to import nearly everything while I’m living in Shanghai, I actually have a backup drawer (or two. One’s in the fridge). So here’s what I buy again and again, because this is the good stuff – my skincare holy grails. Or the products I’d weep over if they ever were to become discontinued.READ MORE

L’Oreal UV Perfect Aqua Essence City Face Mist review

L’Oreal UV Perfect Aqua Essence City Face Mist review

The latest news on various sunscreen mists available and an in-depth review of L’Oreal UV Perfect Aqua Essence City Face Mist, with a comparison to Bioderma’s sunscreen mist (in-depth review here). Sunscreen face mists have become the unicorns of the beauty world. Don’t you think? Last year it was Bioderma that released one, but only in France, and it was hellishly complicated to get our hands on it. This year, L’Oreal brought one out, but only in Asia, and La Roche-Posey (LRP) did, but only in the UK. So it’s starting to seem a bit unicorn-like – you’ve never seen one, but there’re people who have, and in far-away countries you might find them… Ok, maybe I’m going too far with that particular comparison now!

Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin SPF30 Moisturising anti-UV mist – a review + giveaway

Imagine, a moisturising spray without any alcohol or perfume that has a SPF 30 that you can apply OVER your makeup. Yes, indeed, over makeup, so making it ideal for days when you wear a full face of makeup and can’t re-apply sunscreen without making a big ol’ mess about it or risk insufficient protection. And if you find yourself a bit shiny, or your eyeshadow smeared a bit in the heat, you can actually re-apply your makeup of choice over it. A dream, you say? NO! It’s Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin SPF 30 (UVA and UVB protection).READ MORE

I love exploring distant countries, but long-distance flights? They’re something to be endured, not to enjoy. Here’re my tried and true tips to make the experience a little bit less dreadful.READ MORE
