Review: LING Hi-Vitamin C 12% Anti-Oxidant Brightening Solution

With all the Vitamin C serums I've tried over the past few years I will admit a lot of them, while good, felt pretty much the same. Though I still love Vit C serums, I found it harder to get super excited about finding new ones as they were all promising and giving more or less the same results, except for a few twists and tweaks. Then I came across Ling's Vitamin C serum. It promised to help even skin tone and heal scars (like most vit c serums), but also to boost collagen production and help kill acne bacteria. A serum that would rid marks from past blemishes, whilst preventing new ones - all at the same time?! This was a whole new kind of Vitamin C serum for me and into my cult beauty basket it went!


Review: Indeed Labs Hydraluron

After all the hype surrounding this hydrating serum by Indeed Labs I of course wanted to try it. Unfortunately it wasn't available here for a while, but when it finally launched at Boots here in Norway I was one of the first to pick it up.


Review: Guerlain Meteorites Perles Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer

Last year I received a generous sample of the Guerlain Meteorites Perles primer which I brought with me on my trip to New York. I'd never tried any Guerlain primer before, nor had I considered them to be honest. It was the end of June/beginning of July, and New York was unbelievably sunny, hot and dry. Somehow though, my makeup stayed put and looked nice from early morning until evening. I put it down to this primer and the Urban Decay De-Slick. Once I arrived home, I purchased the full size immediately.


Review: Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex

I've mentioned this oil serum before and even featured it in a favourites post. I received what seemed to be a tiny sample of this last summer. It lasted a surprisingly long time, and I instantly fell in love with it. I ordered the full-sized product not long after the sample finished.


Review: Dior Bronze Beautifying Protective Suncare SPF 50

While I've been really happy with my Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense, and did re-purchase, I was really keen to try something else as well. Dior's sunscreen has always intrigued me, if for nothing else the beautiful scent it has. It also was the only sunscreen the store I went to had available in SPF 50, so home with me it came.



Review: Oribe Signature Moisture Mask

When I last went to buy a new hair mask I knew I wanted to try one by Oribe, but I wasn't sure which one. Following the success of the Shampoo and Conditioner "For Beautiful Color" I thought I was going to try the accompanying mask, but got talked into the 'Signature Moisture Mask' instead. I wasn't a hundred percent sure I'd made the right decision as I left the store, but was excited to try the mask nonetheless.


Empties: May 2014

This month I finished quite a few skincare staples and some items that I've been working on for a while. I also decided to get rid of a few more nail polishes and some lip products. It's funny how hard it used to be for me to let go of products about a year back, yet now it just gets easier and easier. There's also some makeup items in this post from my 14 Products to Use Up in 2014 project which is always especially exciting!


Review: Creme De La Mer

Ah Creme de La Mer. This is a product that needs no introduction. We've all heard the raves from countless celebrities and otherwise fabulous people I'm sure a lot of us look up to and admire. On the other hand, we've all also heard the sobering reviews from skin care enthusiasts claiming the ingredients list totes nothing special at all and we're all just victims to a very clever marketing ploy. With so many conflicting opinions, and at such far ends of the spectrum, it's hard to know what to think. I concluded this was one I simply had to try myself, and so I did.


Favourites: May 2014

I've finally finished my exams for this year and so I'm back to blogging. May was a really fun month for me in terms of makeup and skincare. I've stuck to the same skincare routine pretty consistently and my skin has been amazing as a result. Makeup wise I haven't been doing anything too fancy as I've spent most of my time studying, but we've had really good weather so getting to use some brighter colours again has been a lot of fun.


Review: Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara

Since Dior's New Look Mascara was such a disappointment I can't say my interest was high to try the Overcurl Mascara when it was released. Even though I kept hearing great things, I've been so smitten with Chanel and YSL's new releases; Le Volume De Chanel and Babydoll. Luckily I was given the Overcurl Mascara as a gift to try, because otherwise I might have never tried it - and that would have been a shame as this is one seriously fantastic mascara!
