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…

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Review

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…

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.

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…

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…

Nip+Fab Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Pads Review

Hey Beauties! I cant believe its the 1st of December! where has this year gone! With winter coming in full force our skin changes and mine tends to be a bit drier than usual. The Nip+Fab Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Pads contains 60 pads that are enriched with salicylic and hyaluronic acids which deeply cleanse your pores and provide long-lasting hydration to help your skin appear plumper.

First Impressions: Philosophy The Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel

Hey Beauties! How are you all today? I’m having a great day just relaxing and pampering I thought why not just take a break and enjoy myself for a while. Peels are something that really new to me, a while back, I was quite terrified to be honest of peels, just the idea of the word peel sent shivers down my spin. I didn’t quite know how they worked, I just had these ideas of skin peeling off and being all red and sore but when i read up on them they honestly don’t seem scary at all because in…
