I first heard about BB creams last year and had to find our more about this little ‘all-in-one’ Beauty Balm. What is a BB cream? BB cream stands for “Beauty Balm” or “Blemish Balm”. As an all-in-one facial cosmetic product, it is promoted as a replacement for serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. Pretty awesome – right?!    What does it do? “It will give you a good base for makeup like a primer, even out complexion like a tinted moisturiser, cover minor imperfections and redness like a concealer, hydrate your skin like your day cream, brighten and perk-up a dull complexion and some will even protect with SPF. Some also promise healing, soothing and anti-ageing properties.“  SOURCE     Essence all -in-one BB cream I just received the Essence all-in-one BB cream to review and I am suitably impressed.       It comes in three shades: 01 in Universal, 02Read More

Every month I like giving you feedback on what was in that month’s Rubybox, so that you can decide if it’s something you’d like to try.   You can subscribe to Rubybox until the 26th of each month and get it within the first two weeks of the following month, so you won’t have to wait long for your suprise beauty box.   One of the main things that I love about receiving the Rubybox is that you get to try products that would otherwise not only cost you lots of money, but also products that you might never have discovered.   Sometimes I might not like the product, and that’s perfect, as at least I’ve satisfied my curiosity. And when I do find a little gem then I know I’ve found something to treasure for ever.   So let’s get down to finding out What’s In The Box?  Read More

We’ve all heard that we should lather on the SPF daily to prevent premature aging. But now it seems that this is not enough to protect our skin from sun damage. Dermatologists are now recommending that we wear a combination of an antioxidant serum followed by a sunscreen.   Sunscreen blocks UVA and UVB rays while antioxidants can aid in fighting free radicals caused by infrared radiation which is actually much more damaging. Even though antioxidants can’t get rid of the wrinkles you already have, they help prevent the breakdown of elastin by neutralizing those free radicals before they start attacking our healthy cells.   Your antioxidant serum should have a combination of Vitamin C (for longer shelf life), Vitamin E (to stabilize), and Ferulic acid, and you should let it absorb completely before applying your sunscreen.   To make matters worse, the chemical ingredients in SPF like Avobenzone andRead More
