[re]fresh Skin Therapy Lactic Acid Peel & Eye Recovery Serum

[re]fresh refresh skin therapy lactic acid peel review

My skin has been terrible lately.  With the changing weather, I have a sudden outbreak of pimples and orange peel like skin.  Your makeup can’t cover everything, and with the recent heatwave, will not last the day, so I have been making a real effort to “fix” my skin.  I have used [re]fresh peels before, trying their fruit acid peel. This time, I opted for their 10% Lactic Acid Peel.  It is their gentlest exfoliator and is supposed to remove dead[Read more]

Zakias Moroccan Black Soap & Argan Oil

Hard Candy 20th Anniversary Nail Polishes Review & Swatches: Mint, Sky & Claws Up

Hard Candy 20th Anniversary Nail Polish Sky Mint Claws Up

I can still remember wanting a bottle of Hard Candy Sky back in the 90s.  That iconic blue polish worn by Alicia Silverstone was hard enough to find on this side of the pond without finding it in the UK and Hard Candy was more of an indie brand back then, certainly not found in Walmart stores.  A relative in the US sent me a bottle and I pretty much stalked the “postman” (we don’t call it mail in the[Read more]
