Dermatica UK Online Dermatology Service Review

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…

La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Review

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…

The Proper Use of Actives That Cause Sun Sensitivity!

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…

Pestle & Mortar Superstar Retinol Night Oil Review

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…

Emma Hardie is a brand that i absolutely adore, its one of those rare brands where every product ive used i have loved and to be honest that doesn’t…

Blackheads and What We Can Do to Get Rid of Them

Hey Beauties! I get a lot of messages from people wondering how best to deal with blackheads, it inspired me to write a blog post on the topic as i can go more in depth. Contrary to popular belief blackheads are not dirt, blackheads form when a pore has become clogged with excess sebum (oil) and dead skin cells the blackness you see as is actually oxidised sebum. There are a few ways to deal with a blackhead from manual extraction to using various skincare ingredients to treat the area. Personally, I would leave the extractions to the professional as…

La Roche Posay Reformulates Effaclar Duo [+]

Hey Beauties! Think back to 2014, everyone was obsessed with Effaclar Duo i literally dont know anyone who wasnt talking about it. Effaclar was on every blog as far as i can remember, to be honest its not something i ever used because at the time i knew about skincare but i didn’t have the knowledge and the love i have for it these days. La Roche Posay has recently reformulated the iconic Effaclar treatment it now contains more advanced technology with a bacteria-balancing active that controls the skin’s microbiome (The microorganisms/bacteria/flora that lives on your skin). Not only does Effaclar…

Save or Splurge – Foreo Espada vs Neutrogena Acne Light Therapy

Hey Beauties! I have been meaning to do this post for a while now but since the Neutrogena Light Therapy launched i thought i would just combine the posts into a Save or Splurge post. We have 2 acne treatments here that both use light to kill the acne causing bacteria that can be sometimes present. The Foreo Espada is the more expensive treatment and the Neutrogena Light Therapy is the more affordable option, The Foreo Espada uses the dual power of laser-focused blue LED light and T-Sonic™ pulsations which help to clear up acne/spots over time. Espada targets pimples, clogged pores and…
