    Natural Skincare Done The Right Way With Merumaya

Welcome Skintellectuals! I know that i tend to talk a lot about high end/luxury skincare, its because more expensive skincare tends to be better in the sense of better research and higher levels of elegant formulations because there tends to be more money to put into the product but Cerave is a complete exception from that.Cerave is an American brand that was developed with dermatologists, its a brand that a lot of problem skins tend to use as it is recommended by a lot of dermatologists. CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser was developed to cleanse and refresh the skin without over-stripping it or leaving…

Welcome Skintellectuals! I got sent a range of products about a month or 2 ago and i felt that i couldn’t really review them because i didn’t have tattoos so i kindly asked @tdmcgurl_pt one of the coaches at Everyday Athlete Gym to try it out and report back to meElectric Ink Tattoo Care is a brand all about prolonging and caring for the works of art on your body they say  “When your body is your canvas, and tattoos are your stories. When your sleeves are made of ink, and covering up means new art. Stand up and stand…

Welcome Skintellectuals! Being honest i was a little apprehensive to post about Dermatica at first because i thought it might be a bit of a cowboy operation but the more i worked with them and talked with them i realised this is a really fantastic service.As you know Dermatology in the UK is completely different than that of the US its often hard to speak to a Dermatologist and if you do its after months of waiting on the NHS. Dermatica is an online service that provides access to prescription strength skincare for those of you with skin concerns as…

Welcome Skintellectuals! I often get asked about moisturisers for those of you out there that have a true sensitive skin that is irritated by the most innocent of ingredients. So instead of responding to all of you individually i thought i would do a blog post on this fantastic PM moisturiser.  Meet Toleriane Ultra Nuit, a fantastic moisturiser for truly sensitive and reactive skin. What i like about Toleriane Ultra Nuit the most is the fact isn’t not just a moisturiser it actually helps to reduce skin sensitivity day after day.  One of the main things i absolutely love about Toleriane Ultra…

Welcome Skintellectuals! If you know me you’ll know that i love a good cleanser and when one comes along i tend to get a little excited haha. I have quite a rocky relationship with natural skincare because we not only have the greenwashing where brands will say their product does some insane claim or they just outright lie about what the product can achieve.That’s not the case with Merumaya, i honestly feel the way that Malika (the creator of Merumaya) has created the brand is how natural skincare should be! There are no insane claims that this one ingredient can…

Welcome Skintellectuals  If there is one product that has saved my skin on countless occasions its La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5, its that good of a product almost everyone in the family. my mum, my sister and me all have our own tubes of this miracle wonder cream! I have used Cicaplast for a good few years now and to those who haven’t used it before i often describe it like the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream on steroids as Cicaplast is a “do everything cream” without the oil or the smell.Unlike the original version of Cicaplast the SPF…

Welcome Skintellectuals This was a post i had saved to my drafts for ages and i wasnt sure if i was going to post it seeing as the images are from my old photo style, but since im ill i thought what they hey its a good blog post haha! I’m not usually a massive fan of eye creams lately because i think that if hydration is your only worry, moisturisers are more complex and safer to apply around the eyes these days so eye creams fall short. The only time i like using an eye cream is if it…

Welcome Skintellectuals I wanted to write up this post because I see a lot of people using products like Retinol, Glycolic Acid, Essential Oils and not knowing how to use them and worse, I am seeing bloggers recommending these sun sensitising ingredients without telling their readers that if you’re going to get into serious skin care you have to wear SPF daily and not just once in the morning and forget about it, you have to constantly reapply throughout the day because if you don’t all that hard work you do at night with your retinols and AHA’s is just…

Welcome Skintellectuals! I can categorically say that i enjoy and use chemical exfoliants the most simply because i find them to work really well and there is no chance of you scrubbing too hard like with manual exfoliants. Up until recently you wouldn’t have been able to change my mind that is until i tried the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant which is a daily use exfoliating powder like the name suggests and is suitable for all skin types. As i said i dont usually like buffing/manual exfoliants but i was won over by Dermalogica’s unique Rice-based powder formula that activates upon contact…

Welcome Skintellectuals!  It’s no secret that i feel that Retinol should be a staple in everyone’s routine if your 20 or 60 its my opinion that everyone should be using it.Retinol is one of two things that can be called truly anti aging.Retinol is amazing because not only does it help to smooth out the skin, lighten any post acne scarring, at higher percentages available on prescription it can help clear up acne but its really impressive feature is that it stimulates the fibroblast cells deep in the dermis allowing the body to make more collagen as synthesis slows down…
