Review – MUD Body Mask


  Mud: it gets on our boots and it’s kind of gross and messy. It is not usually something we think of when it comes to skincare. But here I am, having just rubbed mud all over my skin deliberately. Not your everyday ‘it just rained and I stepped in a puddle’ type of mud, this was a MUD (My Ultimate Detox) Original body mask. MUD’s key ingredient is bentonite clay which has an electrical charge that livens when mixed with water. This allows the clay to attract toxins and impurities out of your skin.   Here is what I… Continue Reading

Review – Laura Mercier Highlighters


  Highlighters. So many to choose from. Shimmery, glittery, pearly, embossed with brand names and swirly patterns that make them look so pretty you won’t want to ever put your little paws in them. So about a year ago when I officially became a Beauty Bitch for an entire cosmetic department, I would walk around trying to familiarise myself with everyone’s star products so that I would be on top of current trends and so that I would know what the hell I was talking about when people asked me about products from different brands. Look I’ll be honest here,… Continue Reading

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner

They are so simple to use and come in a wide range of colours suitable from day to evening looks for all skin tones.… Continue Reading

Let’s get Lush – A Review of a Handful of Lush Products


  I have always loved walking down the street and then smelling the unique smell of a Lush Cosmetics store from three doors down. To me, Lush is like visiting the Weasley’s shop in Harry Potter: I walk in and I just want to touch and smell and experience everything. This is because Lush make products “from fresh organic fruits and vegetables, the finest essential oils, and safe synthetics.” They also only buy ingredients “from companies that do not conduct or commission tests on animals” (from the Lush website). This guilt free sense of values, combined with the fact that… Continue Reading
