Wonderland Makeup Studio Finish Primer review

Hey guys! Today I’m going to be writing about a product that I’ve been wanting to review for months now, but just haven’t been able to schedule it in. Now, I have managed to, and I can finally post about it. Hurrah!

Wonderland Makeup is a brand that produces high quality, cruelty free products that don't cost the earth and the Wonderland Makeup Studio Finish Primer is perhaps one of their most popular products. It is a silicone based, silky smooth, oil-free primer that claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and to hold makeup in place on the face for a flawless finish that lasts all day.

Primer may be something that some decide to skip over when applying their makeup and this may be due to a few reasons. Maybe your skin is very dry, or very oily, blemish-prone or sensitive. This primer is one for all, and should deliver the perfect finish regardless of your skin type.

It comes in a transparent tube that holds 30ml of product, and the product itself is also clear in colour but feels and looks a bit like a gel when you squeeze it out of the tube. The primer then comes packaged in a sleek, black and white box.

Cool Facts about Cosmetics - Infographic Guest Post

Hi guys! An interesting email appeared in my inbox this week that included something really fascinating that I wanted to share with you all. If you think that you know all there is to know about cosmetics and beauty, you may still be surprised by a fact or two from todays post.

The following infographic was created by Debi Falconer from FragrancesCosmeticsPerfumes.com and it contains a list of tidbits of information about cosmetics and beauty.

Click to full-size it so that it is not difficult to read. I had to split it into two because blogger doesn't seem to like large photo sizes! If you enjoy what you read, go and give FragrancesCosmeticsPerfumes.com a visit too!

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder review

*
Hey guys! Today I’m going to be discussing a product that I’m sure you have all heard of as it’s a bit well known (with good reason). 

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder

The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder is the reformulated follow up from the classic HD Powder, making this the 4k-ready powder upgrade from the predecessor. It promises to create a soft mattifying effect on the skin but with a luminous finish, whilst at the same time blurring pores, fine lines and minor imperfections and giving your face a flawless finish (but of course you are all flawless already, remember that). It contains silicone powders, silica, synthetic mica and also hyaluronic acid to smooth the complexion but also prevent it from drying. 

It comes in 3 different shades for different skin tones. Translucent, the shade I have here today, is a white powder that is actually translucent on the skin which is best suited to the paler side of the skin tone range. In the middle there is Banana, best for those with medium skin tones. And last but certainly not least, there is Peach for medium to darker skin tones.

It comes packaged in a sleek, metal, rounded-corner square tin that has a little button to open the lid. There is a mirror inside but no applicator, so you will need something to apply it with. The powder itself is very fine and silky.

Mizon Enjoy Vital-Up Time Soothing Mask review

*
Hey guys! We’ve had some terrible weather here in the UK lately, and even though I’ve heard rumours about more bad weather on the way, right now the sun is out (albeit still cold out) and we can attempt to enjoy what is supposed to be spring. It’s time to heal up winter damaged skin and step out with a spring-ready glow. I selected to review today’s product as a first step to doing just that! Plus, it's from a Korean brand, and we all know how good Korean beauty products are, amirite?

The Mizon Enjoy Vital-Up Time Soothing Mask is a tencel sheet mask that contains lavender extract to soothe and heal the skin, as well as working to relieve issues caused by sensitive skin. In addition to lavender, it contains the Mizon "vital essence", a blend that includes Trehalose and Hyaluronic Acid to moisturise, Allantoin to help aid the recovery of any skin issues and Sc-glucan to soothe and revitalise. 

It comes packaged in this funky, bright green, geometric-patterned foil sachet with the sheet mask folded up inside. 

Mizon is a brand that I have tried before and the product that I used was incredible. Therefore, trying out something else by the brand was a must. Seeing as the bad weather wreaks havoc with the skin for a lot of people, myself included, I figured that this would be a great product to start with. In addition to the bad weather causing dry and sensitive skin issues, it's also been a prime time for nasty viruses going around that also cause their own issues. Let's check it out.

Davines Naturaltech Detoxifying Scrub Shampoo review

*
We focus so much on taking care of our skin and we do a whole range of practices using different products, and an example of one technique is exfoliation. Chances are that you already exfoliate your skin, own facial exfoliators, body exfoliators and so on. One of the less common products you hear about though is a hair and scalp exfoliator. Well, they do exist (and in fact, I've already reviewed an exfoliating shampoo before), and today I shall be sharing all you need to know about one that I've been trying out recently. 

Davines Naturaltech Detoxifying Scrub Shampoo

The Davines Naturaltech Detoxifying Scrub Shampoo is a lightly exfoliating, balancing shampoo that contains a hefty dose of antioxidants from the addition of artichoke phytoceuticals, and jojoba oil for shine and moisture. It promises to clarify and remove any product build up from the hair and scalp, thoroughly clean and stimulate the scalp and also rejuvenate, refresh, enhance shine, moisturise, protect from free-radicals and of course, detox the hair and scalp. 

It is free from sulfates, and Davines say that the "Naturaltech [range] is a complete program of innovative solutions that target hair and scalp problems while bridging sustainable beauty practices with cutting edge technology."

It comes bottled in a plastic, dark orange/brown bottle with a flip cap lid and it is available in two sizes: 250ml and 1000ml. The shampoo itself is light green in colour with scrubbing beads inside. You could almost mistake it for an exfoliating face wash by sight.
