Discovering Problem Solvers From Know Cosmetics*

know cosmetics review

know cosmetics review

Up until recently, Know Cosmetics was a brand I had never heard of and was shocked to learn that for the past year they were sold online at Superdrug (how the hell did I miss that?) However, those of you from across the pond may have stumbled upon this tiny range whilst browsing around beauty giant, Sephora. They carry a small line of products to help tackle daily make-up challenges, such as: dark circles, bleeding and feathering of lipstick, sparse brows and thin lips.

I couldn't wait to get stuck into trying the No Dark Shadows Concealer as I lived in hope it would replace my current holy grail Tarte Shape Tape concealer. If you live in the UK, you'll know all too well how expensive this is due to the inclusion of the sponge.

Why I won't be left red faced this Winter - My 3 Winter Comfort Creams

eucerin face cream, swissforce pharma couperose cream, oilaitum face cream

There are times during the depths of Winter (normally around January) where I suffer a short period of extreme dryness and redness. The overindulgence of Christmas food and booze, combining with living on the coast during the coldest month of the year, and the need for the heating to be whacked up full blast probably doesn't help matters for triggering my skin going haywire. So, when these moments occur, I have on stand by what I call my comfort creams. Yes, these three clinical tubes may look like something out of a Pharmacy rather than from a department store or from some cult beauty site, they have been wonderful for calming down any irritation, dryness and redness whilst also providing that much-needed barrier. But what's also great about these is the texture is light enough to wear even under make-up.

Highlighter Comparisons: Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter & Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops

Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter Champagne

Tis the season to wear highlighter and plenty of it! Love them or loathe them, the work's Christmas do will soon be upon us bringing you the perfect opportunity to shine your light! Liquid highlighters have been around for quite a number of years now (think Benefit's High Beam) but it's only up until recently that other brands have decided to intensify this trend and create their own set of bobby dazzlers, coming in with these hugely popular drop formulations which makes these incredibly versatile to use on their own or with base products. Different shades can also be layered to create your own signature look. They're an excellent alternative for dry or mature skins for providing a glow without highlighting everything else!

Rosehip PLUS: The Organic Skincare Brand you need to know about

Rosehip Plus Skincare Range and Review

I love discovering new brands, and up until recently, Rosehip PLUS was one I hadn't heard of. They are a brand from Australia (and a best seller one at that), who have produced a small line of skin care products that contain naturally sourced rosehip as well as other amazing ingredients. They are also Australian Certified Organic, PETA approved (cruelty-free) and vegan friendly. I was really excited when they contacted me to see if I would like to try their entire range.

Grow Gorgeous Hair Care - First Impressions: Plus, Black Friday Offer!

grow gorgeaous haircare range review

Grow Gorgeous is a haircare brand that encourages growth, thicker and better conditioned hair. It's a brand I've always wanted to try but never got round to it despite their recent arrival in the larger Boots stores. The ex Deciem brand seems to have a bit of a cult following amongst bloggers. They all seem to love it! So, to say I'm really pleased to be given the opportunity to give my hair some much-needed tlc is an understatement.

I was never blessed with a thick mane of hair - you know, the type that you see in shampoo adverts. At best, it was fine but lots of it. Now it's at that menopausal stage where its thinner and looks very ageing (especially around the hairline). Plus I'm also noticing the speed in growth has slowed down a little, especially this year.
