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…

Bioderma Photoderm MAX SPF 50+ Review

Hey Beauties! In Scotland this summer  it has been really weird….it has actually been sunny! usually we get 2 days of summer then rain the rest of the time but this year was the exception I honestly dont remember the last time we had a good proper summer. Talking of summer not only is it important to wear SPF everyday it is especially important to wear it when it is hot and sunny. My latest go-to SPF is the Bioderma Photoderm MAX SPF50+ I know I was raving about how good the Paula’s Choice SPF was and to be honest…

Brush on Block SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen Review

Hey Beauties!  You guys know how fanatical i can be about SPF so when i came across this beauty i kind of lost my shit haha. SPF should be worn 365 days of the year whether its hot or cold outside even if its cloudy UVA and UVB are still around. I often find that once people start to wear SPF its fantastic you are protecting yourself but the reapplication is always a problem, we should be reapplying every 2/3 hours when in direct sunlight (e.g. being outside) How do you apply SPF again over your makeup? the only solution…

NIOD Survival 30 Daily SPF Review

Hey Beauties! NIOD is starting to become a fast favourite with me, ive not tried much of their products because in all honest i was quite confused as to what they did! but thanks to Vicky (@SkincareMagpie) I have quite a good handle on some of their products. The lovely people at Deciem recently sent me quite a few of their products from both NIOD and The Ordinary to try out so i obviously had to try Survival 30. If you were wondering what Survival 30 is its silicone dispersed UV minerals (….bascially a mineral SPF in a silicone base) If…

5 More Beauty Bits You Need in Your Life

Hey Beauties! If you remember my previous post at the start of the year “Top 5 Beauty Bits You Have To Try” i showed you some of my favourite products that i had been using so i thought it would be good to end of the year in the same way! Everyone knows or should know that SPF is so important to wear not just when the sun is out but all year round, realistically yeah that doesn’t happen but if you want to protect your skin its best that you find products that contain some sort of SPF.  Jack…

Benefit Dream Screen Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Review

Hey Beauties! We all know, or should know, how important SPF is. We should be using it every day all,  year round – even in the winter because, of course,  the sun reaches us everywhere we go. SPF is important because it protects us from the harmful rays of the sun known as Ultraviolet Rays. When trying to understand SPF it’s broken down into UVA and UVB.  UVA is known as the ‘aging’ ray as it can cause premature aging of the skin over time. UVA rays can pass through glass so even if you are inside you’re still at…
