Review Round up: Skincare

Votary Super Seed Oil

I’m not a big fan of facial oils, there’s been very few I have tried and loved but the Votary Super Seed Oil is one of the ones I loved. I was gifted this by a friend and I was actually going to give it away until I decided to check the price. At £70 for 50ml I decide to test out why it was so popular and expensive.

The oil is a blend of 22 seed oils and formulated for sensitive, hormonal and stressed skin. It’s surprisingly lightweight and has a beautiful ‘botanical’ scent to it. I really like this oil. I use it when my skin feels irritated and this really helps to soothe it. I also use it when my skin barrier is damaged and I am on a break from using actives. Is it expensive? Yes. But does it work? Absolutely!

Dermalogica Active Moist

So I first used this moisturiser after I had a Dermalogica luxury facial and my facialist used this on me. I loved the texture of it and how lightweight it was without being oily. Much later on, I purchased the Dermalogica Normal skin kit and it came with a travel size of the active moist moisturiser. This is an oil-free lightweight moisturiser for combination skin. I find the texture very similar to a water cream and it does well at hydrating and softening the skin. Its oil-free but it leaves my skin dewy and glowing. I use this twice a day and it layers well very other serums. I would definitely recommend this and will happily purchase the full size. This mini size has actually lasted me a while because I don’t need a lot of it.


Nivea Q10 plus C Eye Cream

I’m really loving the Q10 plus C range from Nivea, I have used a lot of items from the collection. This eye cream was gifted to me at an event and I started using it earlier this year. This is one of the few eye creams I have tried that has actually made a difference. I have dark circles and when I used this consistently it helps to brighten my under eye. The cream itself its quite lightweight so doesn’t feel heavy in the area.

It would be the first time I have introduced an active ingredient in my eye area and so far I am loving the results. It says it also targets fine lines but the lines I have around my eye area have remained the same. I still really like this and 100% recommend.

That’s all for now.

These are the products I have in rotation and have been using very often. I will be back with more reviews later.

Catch you later!

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?) So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
