Harrods Beauty Opening at Lakeside

Last moth we ventured to the outside and visited Lakeside Shopping Centre for the first time in ages. However it also happened to be the opening of the new Harrods Beauty, a dedicated space where you can find a vast collection of beauty products from luxury and high demand brands. 

I really liked the giant makeup display, the teddy bear art piece at the entrance and also the beautiful chairs at the Gucci section. I was quite excited to find out they had a counter exclusively stocked with The Ordinary products, where I picked out a couple of things that Dot got me for Christmas.

Have you visited Harrods Beauty?

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment redness solution cream review

A while back Dot got me the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment along with some other nice things for my birthday. 

Because I don't wear foundation, I was very interested in trying this cream as I wanted to reduce redness and conceal any problem areas or spots without having to resort to makeup. 

The Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment is a green tinted cream with Centella Asiatica meant to neutralise redness and protect the skin with it's SPF 30/PA ++. The 'Green Cell Stress Relief' technology helps soothe sensitised skin resulting from external environmental stressors. 

The packaging has the following directions: "after toner and serum, apply a moderate amount onto sensitised skin. The protecting treatment will change from green to beige to correct any redness to even out skin tone before makeup application."

Usually, I take a pea sized amount and put it on the back of my hand, then proceed to apply small amounts where needed and blend with my fingers. The cream definitely helps conceal any redness, uneven skin tone, pores and mild texture irregularities. So it would make a great primer if you do wear makeup, however if I'm going out I only apply some translucent powder on top. 

As it is a cream, it has a medium texture but it is not greasy or leave my skin looking shiny, and if you have dry skin you could probably get away with not applying any mattifying powder on top. 

All in all, I would definitely recommend this cream as it is a great way of improving the look of skin, not just instantly but also in the long run, without wearing any makeup. 

Find Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment on Beauty BayCult Beaty and ASOS.


PS. If you like this product as much as me, you can buy stickers, prints and cards with my watercolour illustration of it.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser review

On Valentine's Day Dotcito got me a couple of skincare items, and with them he included the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, which is meant for all skin types, is rich in amino acids and claims to gently cleanse face and eyes. 

The Fresh Soy Face Cleanser has a lightweight gel consistency and doesn't really lather, however it is gentle on my skin and cleanses well without leaving my skin feeling dry or tight. 

This cleanser is very quick and easy to use and leaves skin very soft, it also has a light, natural scent that doesn't linger and it can be used to remove eye makeup, however I can't comment on that as I have only used it for my face because I haven't really been wearing eye makeup (or even going out for that matter ha!).

I think this cleanser is definitely something you could try if you want to treat yourself to a gentle cleanser that can multitask and leaves your skin soft and supple.

Find the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser at Cult Beauty.

List of Enemies Stationery Collection: funny and sarcastic notebook, stickers, journal, pencil case

One of the newest designs available in my Redbubble shop is this List of Enemies number. It is originally a design thought to go on stationery, however it also looks good on the phone cases, mugs, zipper pouches and laptop sleeves and skins, plus the extra blank area means it can be customised with some patches or stickers to make it truly your own.

Video: On My Birthday


On my birthday vlog video

A video I took ages to edit and publish as it is actually from my birthday last year. This year we did want to go out for dinner but turns out someone in our party had to wait for their test results as they had been hanging out with someone that had the virus, then their test came back negative but the restaurant was all booked up as it was when they had tax free dining during the week. So this year we had some Indian takeaway for my birthday.
