Serums are such an important step in our skincare routine and because I have combination skin, having a great purifying one is essential to keeping my complexion balanced, clear and smooth. Over the years I have used some pretty harsh ones (high alcohol content etc) that have left my skin irritated, dry and flaky but these three have been complete heroes for me. I wanted to do a post about them together because not everyone with acne or who is acne prone needs the same thing but between these serums there is an option for every skin type, acne level, ingredients preference and budget.

Happy New Year, everyone!!! This is my third yearly Favourites but my first one on the blog and I am so excited to be able to talk about each product in more detail. Every product here has been my most loved/most used in their respective categories throughout 2015 and this time around it was so easy to pick my favourites – I just knew already. Even though some of these products are more recent discoveries than others, all of them have become firm staples in my collection that I reached for time and time again last year, so keep reading to find out why!

So you’ve decided to give yourself or a loved one the gift of great skin this year (and who wouldn’t want that?!) but with practically every brand offering a variety of gift sets, limited edition products and holiday specials, it can be a bit overwhelming. When it comes to holiday shopping, skincare gift sets are what I look forward to the most. They’re cute (hello, minis!), include multiple products and are the perfect way to test a brand without spending a lot of money. I personally think they make the best gifts, which is why I have decided to do a gift guide series focusing on the best skincare sets out there for every beauty lovers preferences. First up – the “Strictly Science-ists”. These consumers love the high-tech, scientific approach to skincare and are looking for performance over purity so if that’s you or someone you know, then these are the perfect gifts.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you will know I have been pretty obsessed with Bravura London for the past couple of months. The 2% Salicylic Acid Peel was my most used product in November and now with the addition of the 10% Glycolic Acid Peel and the Revitalising Ginseng Toner, my obsession is off the charts. It was so easy for me to pick them as last month’s favourites because I have used them more than any other product I own and have seen better results than with anything else I use. I have also been getting so many questions about them that I thought it was high time I did a review so you can get an idea of what they’re like and decide which one is right for you.

As I am still travelling, I am so happy to be done with these products because they were quite bulky compared to the rest of what I have and while I’m sad to be finished with them, it does feel good to have lightened my travel load. Continue reading
If you follow me on Instagram, it should come as no surprise that these five products are this month’s favorites because they have all been in heavy rotation over the past few weeks and for good reason. With the changing weather, my skin has been on the drier side of combination and these products have helped me to keep it clear, smooth and hydrated. Continue reading
Distilled Water, Salicylic acid, Propylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hydroxide.
I have recently been getting a lot of questions about my travel routine so I thought it was high time I did a review on the star product that has kept my skin in check whilst I have been on the road so much lately. I first heard about Bravura London almost 3 years ago to the day when Pampered Prince blogged about his Glycolic Acid Trial and then when he posted about the Ginseng Toner being a Glow Tonic dupe (it is – the ingredients are virtually identical). For some reason I completely forgot about them (my mistake) until about a month ago when I found this gem amongst my cousin’s impressive skincare collection and I’m so glad I did. Continue reading
