Birthday Makeup Giveaway Results

Birthday Makeup Giveaway Results

My apologies for the delay in publishing the results of my Birthday Giveaway. For one, there were quite a few entries to verify (with many, many invalid entries). For another, I'm simultaneously redesigning this website all by myself, which is proving to be a veritable nightmare. Thirdly, I'm also undergoing scar revision procedures, so my face is a traumatised mess right now.
New giveaway will be up right tomorrow, so stay tuned for that. Here's a hint: there's a little palette in there!
To the winner: As I've said in my InstaStories, I underwent subcision for scar revision yesterday. So I'm going to be hors de combat for a couple of days, so I will post your prize only next week, once I'm back in public life. 
Anyway, drumroll....

LookFantastic Get The Glow Beauty Box May 2017 Review

LookFantastic Get The Glow Beauty Box May 2017 Review

My attempt at redesigning this blog continues; I now have even deeper dark circles! Pageviews have tanked (because I've clearly messed something up badly), so I would appreciate all the shares I can get, as I fill in with another quick post.
The LookFantastic Beauty Box for May 2017 is the Get The Glow Edition. I knew there would be at least one fake tan in there. You know it is Summer when you begin to receive fake tan products in beauty boxes. Nothing wrong - it's just that I have a lifetime supply. Possibly for two generations, even!
This month's box features a very pretty shaded pink design, and the Elle UK Magazine for May is also included.

No Makeup No Life Beauty Box May 2017

No Makeup No Life Beauty Box May 2017

This is a quick, short post - I am in the process of redesigning this blog, all by myself, which is why things are messy and slow right now. Which is also why blogging itself has taken a backseat. Feedback on the current layout is welcome.
Last month, I introduced you to the No Makeup No Life beauty box from Japan - the entire thing costs $29.99, inclusive of worldwide delivery, with longer subscriptions bringing you some savings.
Their May 2017 box is themed "beauty must-haves", and is makeup-centric. This month's box arrived in very good condition, after last month's box turned up flattened. Everything in the NMNL box is always full-sized

There is also an Aspinal of London card holder in misty blue kaviar. I cannot count the number of times I've drooled over Aspinal goods.

The Hero Project Vit C 30 is the Best Vitamin C Ever

The Hero Project Vit C 30 is the Best Vitamin C Ever

About a year ago, my skin discovered the amazingness that was Ascorbic Acid, or Vitamin C, after a bad breakout left hyperpigmentation on my olive skin.
I began with a 12% formulation, before moving up to a potent 21.5% L-Ascorbic Acid from Korea. My hyperpigmentation began to withdraw - I've mentioned the product several times in my empties' posts, and used up more than four bottles.
Until.
The unstable L-AA not only turned deep orange within three weeks of opening - despite 24x7 refrigeration - but it also ruined my fingernails, turning them orange and brittle, and making my nail beds turn black. This was more than I could take, so I began looking for an alternative Vitamin C serum.
I tried more than a dozen - stay tuned for a comparison post - and wasn't too delighted with anything, until I was browsing around during a haul on LookFantastic, to avail of free shipping. That is when I spotted The Hero Project Vit C 30 Ultra Brightening Serum. Yes, that IS 30%. "Ultra Brightening" being the operative phrase here.
