Brush Crush

I’ll keep this one short and sweet because we already know that Real Techniques are a great brand. We already know that as a brand that is designed by Sam and Nic Chapman we will always get results driven brushes but wait for the mic drop when it comes to these babies because honestly at…

Blemish Emergency Solution 

Spots are not to be picked do you hear me? NOT to be picked. Your mum told you, your beauty therapist told you and now I am telling you. Forget it. I don’t care if Mount Ethna has erupted on your face, this is not a drill. Leave it out. Blemishes respond well totopical treatments…

Pure Potions for Dry Scaly Skin 

Itchy atopic skin is part of life for me everyday. While I control my Psoriasis quite well using a little prescription product the rest of my body is still dry. Bearing in mind I’m a slave to the shower I had to look to a range that was a good emollient and not over the…

Payday is still a week away and with that in mind I wanted to show you some pretty budget buys to help beat the January blues. Matt lipsticks have become a staple in all of our make up bags and one of the best stain / colour combo comes from Wet’nWild and their liquid catsuit….

Christmas Gifting

  Christmas Gifting doesn’t need to be super expensive. Stocking fillers are typically priced below €15 and if you are as sold as I am then I am almost positive that your memories of these are things like pencil cases and maybe a book. As a Cork based beauty blog I find that we are…

Skin experts have long known the benefits of these ingredients in skincare so let’s dispel some of the lingo associated with skincare to help us understand what sugar or acid works best for each skin type. AHA- Alpha hydroxy acids are…

Naked Heat 

I must admit to getting myself in an awful state when I heard that this pallet was being launched. As a middle aged blue eyed woman I could think about little else until I got it in my hands. Of course after the big walloping disappointment that was the naked basics ultimate I was still…

Seoulista Masks 

Sheet masks are big business right now with the Korean trend taking the beauty world by storm. Hailed as a quick fix the idea is that they are infused with skincare and you can use them just once. Perfect for travel they are individually wrapped and super easy to use. They don’t break the bank…
