Dermalogica Breakdown

Every once in a while I come across a skincare brand that transforms my skin. Dermalogica have been doing their round on here, on other blogs and all over instagram. They are a brand that believes the best way to look after your skin, is to be gentle and kind with it. I have a selection of products that I have loved, used and put some away because they haven't worked as well. I have very kindly been sent these products, but my opinion is honest and I only say the truth - as always.

Löwengrip Review

Löwengrip is a brand that was started by Isabella Löwengrip. A beauty venture that in just a couple of years has become one of the leading brands in the Nordics. The brand offers amazing quality products that are suitable for even the most sensitive skin and scalp. Löwengrip creates its own  recipes, which are formulated together with real people, through a process of detailed social media communication and feedback. I've been using two products from the brand for about month now and I am in love.

Lowengrip UK Hair Mask Review


Using a hair mask in my hair routine, was never something that I thought I would need. However, this particular one has made a big difference to the health of my hair. The main ingredients are shea butter, which is very nourishing and bamboo extract to help repair, regenerate and protect damaged hair. A weird but wonderful ingredient also inside is sunflower oil, which retains moisture in the hair while argan oil and apple seed oil provide suppleness and shine. All of these together give you tangle free, soft and healthy looking hair. 

I tested this in a really odd way. The first week, I used it three times - at the same time as shampooing my hair. The mask is to be used after shampoo and before conditioner. My hair felt soft, silky and no need for conditioner. Then the second and third time, I used the hair mask on Sunday and this time used a real good handful. I found that this gave my hair a boost and I didn't have to wash it for the next week! I didn't believe this, so the next week the mask wasn't included in my routine - and I ended up washing it twice again that week. The following week, I used the mask again and didn't wash my hair for the week. Can you spot the pattern? 

Its amazing that just one product has changed my whole hair! 
Lowengrip Body Balm Review


I am such a moisturiser hoarder, from face to body - I need them all. Sometimes, I think that I have way more than I need but never mind. This balm gives the skin nourishment. It is enriched with MICRO PROSkin, which is a strong blend of prebiotics and probiotics - which smoothes the texture of the skin. It also gives the skin a slight glow, nothing too in your face but a little shimmer. This would be lovely to wear and layer up in the winter. I love applying this on my legs, to make them look less boring and dull.  It also smells incredible, with notes of honey and musk, your skin just lifts with this gorgeous scent. 

I have been super impressed by both of these Löwengrip products, they do the job, look gorgeous on my shelf with the rose gold packaging and smell so good.

Diwali Eyes

Happy Diwali! Well, it was technically yesterday but still Happy Diwali! I was at work all day, but we celebrated in the evening and will be carrying on at the weekend because why not. I kept my base very simple as I wanted the focus to be on the eyes. With a stunning palette that screams evening, some fluttery lashes and gold liner why wouldn't they be the focus!

Bedtime Rituals

A few weeks ago, the most random parcel arrived at my doorstep. It was from REN Skincare in the US. I was so confused, as I haven't given them my address. Then I got a sense of excitement because REN are one brand, I have always wanted to try. Soon after, I got confused again. As you can tell, I am still a bit all over the place - but I wanted to say thank you - if you're reading this and sent me this parcel because my sleeping pattern and bedtime routine has never been better. Since, going back after half term my body has managed to get itself into a routine and doing little things before going to bed has made the biggest difference to my quality of sleep.
