The Ordinary Company Skincare Roundup

The Ordinary Company has laid out their product descriptions really well. There’s a lot of confusion around.. Check out their regime guide if you are too. I found it easy to build a routine based on the chart and reading. I tried 6 skincare products from their line.

Eyeko Lash Alert -£19.50

I love the formula of this mascara. It gives me exactly what I need. The most important thing being holding that curl. I haven’t found any mascara that can curl my lashes without help of a curling tool. But most will weigh lashes down or flake in couple of hours. This one doesn’t curl lashes on its own but once it’s on, it stays. The formula is black and it coats evenly. All mascaras should come in a squeezy tube I think. It enables you to move the product around. I am not a fan of thick spidery lashes atm. I am looking for length and staying power. This gives me just that, it’s perfect. (more…)

Mum life

Hello there! Mini me and I are 9 months in. There’s been many changes this year- we have moved furnitures to make space for all the new bits. Which means I have no space to work. I have managed to create a little nook where little hands can’t reach…so yay for progress! (more…)

November Favorites

Hope you are all well. In the past few weeks, I have been feeling unmotivated when it comes to trying new things. Still looking for a good daytime/night moisturiser/treatment that’s suitable during pregnancy. Everything I have tried so far were alright, nothing that makes me want to repurchase or talk about really. So no retinol. Not too many essential oils, or heavily scented. I am sensitive to glycolic acid and salicylic acid. I am considering good genes from Sunday Riley, it’s ridiculously priced but my skin reacted well with lactic acid (that was not nearly as concentrated as in good genes) in the past. I am just not sure if it’s going to work at the moment. Have you tried it? How did your skin fare? Also, does it really smell bad? (more…)

New Season Additions

I had the most satisfying declutter -clothing, shoes, beauty and bath products and even food cupboard. Not a lot fits right, now that I’m 28 weeks pregnant. I didn’t really shop anything maternity specific. Just whatever works and that I can wear next year too! Here’s bits of what I added in. (more…)
