Today’s post will be a full review on the RoC serum capsules I received in January. The MULTI CORREXION® Revive + Glow Night Serum Capsules has 20% pure vitamin C and promises to reduce dark spots in 4 weeks! It also promises to reduce discoloration & lines and resurface the skin overnight.
I used this at the serum step in my PM routine. It took a little over 4 weeks because I took some breaks. I started to use this with a BHA serum however by day 5 this combo left me with some texture so I took a 2 day break. I then switched to a mandelic acid serum and I didn’t experience and issues with that. My PM routine was as follows:
This routine worked really well and the products paired well together. The serum has a silicone base so has that texture and feel to it (similar to a primer), surprisingly this didn’t cause any pilling with other products. It did sting the 1st few days of using it however for a high vitamin c that is not surprising. The stinging stopped after day 3 or 4. (If you are new to Vitamin C, I would recommend starting slow, 1x a week, then 3x a week till your skin can build tolerance)
2 weeks into my test, I got a new spot on new cheek which you can see in my picture, the 2nd dark spot next to the original one. This wasn’t caused by the serum, that spot that been festering under the skin for a while and decided to show up then! I tend to get spots in the same area and no matter what I do, I always get hyperpigmentation afterwards 😦
Here are side by side pics. I think the serum did really help with reducing some of the dark spots I have on my cheeks. I am also really impressed with it reducing the new dark spot in a little over 2 weeks. Overall, my skin looks radiant and feels smooth.
I did enjoy using the MULTI CORREXION® Revive + Glow Night Serum Capsules. It did reduce my discoloration and improve overall skin radiance. I will recommend this. These will also be great for travelling!
I was gifted this product but my opinions and reviews are my own. Always remember to use SPF in the AM.
RoC MULTI CORREXION® Revive + Glow Night Serum Capsules are £35.99 on Lookfantastic (currently on sale!)
I hope all is well. Last year, I wanted to look for more affordable sunscreens, sunscreens under £10 so that everyone could have protection without spending a lot of money! One I found is the Garnier Super UV Anti Dark Spots and Anti-Pollution SPF 50+.
Garnier Super UV Anti Dark Spots and Anti-Pollution SPF 50+ is a chemical based sunscreen that has broad-spectrum protection and a PA rating of 3. The SPF also has hyaluronic acid.
The SPF has a very light fluid texture just like I like it. Its feels very lightweight on the skin and the added HA means its hydrating. The finish is a semi glowing finish, no greasy feel and sinks into the skin very easily. Shake well before use
It does have a sunscreen/chemical scent but no more than other SPFs I have tried.
See how it looks on my skin on my Insta reel below:
The SPF is 100% invisible on dark skin! I love this so much. It’s lightweight, hydrating and invisible. It doesn’t pill on me. It reminds me a lot of the La Roche Posay Shaka Fluid which I also love but this is more hydrating in my opinion.
For only £8 this is an excellent sunscreen. I think it will be great for most skintypes (not sure about sensitive skin)

Hello everyone, I’m really excited to write this post because I finally got a Beautylish lucky bag!! Beautylish do these every year and for the longest time I wanted one. I decided to finally get one last year and it’ s arrived (although very delayed). So in this post we will go through the box and whether it was worth it
Beautylish Lucky Bags are once a year (26th Dec) and they are filled with random products. You choose your skintone range (I went for Dark to Deep) and pay for an original box $75, or an XL box $150. Your box is guaranteed to be worth double of what you paid. I actually wanted the XL box but due to the pandemic, they were only shipping original boxes to the UK
My box was due to be shipped on 17th Jan 22 but this was delayed and was shipped a week later.
UOMA BEAUTY Boss Gloss Liquid Marble (Cray Cray)-$22 USD
CHARLOTTE TILBURY Instant Eye Palette – Smokey Eyes Are Forever -$75 USD
WAYNE GOSS THE RADIANCE BOOSTING FACE PALETTE (Deep Cover)- $45 USD
So the box is definitely worth more than double than what I paid for. In terms of the selection of products, I do not have any of these so that’s good. I am slightly disappointed with the Wayne Goss palette because of the shades. I think I can just about get away with this for bronzing/contouring but anyone darker than me wont. I personally don’t like dark purple lip glosses so I won’t be using UOMA beauty gloss.
The rest of the products are ok. I have a love/hate relationship with Charlotte Tilbury but I do like this palette. I’ve used Danessa Myricks Colorfix before and loved it. Good Molecules is a brand I love and always happy to get more brushes
I think I would have preferred the XL box. Hopefully the XL box ships to UK this year otherwise I don’t think I would get another original bag. I definitely went into it with an open mind, I did want a Natasha Denona eyeshadow palette but I really like the CT one I got.
Today’s post will be on my double cleansing routine. I don’t double cleanse every day ( but almost everyday lol), but when I have makeup on, I like to do this routine to ensure all traces of makeup are off. I may change products from time to time but the principle is always: balm/oil for the first cleanse (you may also use micellar water) and a face wash as the second cleanser (you could also use your face wash twice) the aim of a double cleanse is to wash your face twice to ensure all makeup, dirt, SPF etc is removed
First cleanse: Farmacy Green Clean
I love Farmacy Green Clean as a 1st cleanse! This is my second tub of this. It breaks down makeup, mascara so easily and very well. It transforms easily from solid balm to oil and rinses away clean. After massaging all over, I remove this with the Primark makeup remover cloth
Second cleanse: Fenty Total Cleanser
This is actually a makeup remover and facewash but I only use it as the latter. I do like this facewash, it leaves the face clean, removes traces of makeup and oil and doesn’t dry out my skin. I love the scent of this!
View my double cleansing routine in action on my Instagram
After my double cleansing I move on to a face mask next (depending on how I feel) or my evening routine (toner, serum, treatment, night cream).
I love these cleansers and they are an excellent addition to any routine.
Have you tried Fenty Skincare? Today’s post will be a review and demo on the Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer SPF 30.
The SPF 30 moisturiser promises invisibility on all skin tones, non-greasy finish and no pilling. It also promises to brighten skin, hydrate the skin and its oil free
As always SPF is the last step in the morning routine. As it’s an SPF moisturiser, I use this on top f my serums. The moisturiser feels lightweight on the skin and I have experienced any irritation from it.
I love this SPF! It is invisible on my skin, leaves a dewy/glowing finish and doesn’t pill on me! It’s also a great base for makeup
Watch my demo of this on Instagram below
This is a great SPF moisturiser. If the full size is out f your budget, you can also get it in a travel size set ( with the face wash and toner). If you do purchase the full size, you are able to get refill cartridges. The moisturiser is heavily scented so if you don’t like fragrance in skincare, you have to give this a miss!
Hello everyone, I hope all is well. I’m talking about yet another sunscreen, the Hello Sunday The Everyday One Face Moisturiser Spf30. This brand is new to me, I never heard of them but it was on sale and I was happy to give it a try
Hello Sunday The Everyday One Face Moisturiser Spf30 is a lightweight lotion that promises broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection to prevent sun damage and ageing to the skin. Its hydrating and fragrance free. It also offers blue light and pollution protection
The brand recommends 5 pumps for your face and neck however I found that, that many pumps pills on me. I find 3 pumps sufficient and no piling. It is a very lightweight lotion and disappears into my skin with ease. I love the finish of the SPF as well and of course its 100% invisible on the skin
See me try it on in my demo below
Verdict- it’s a good broad-spectrum SPF that is quite affordable-under £20. The brand actually has a few different types of SPF so I will be happy to try another product from them
Hello Sunday The Everyday One Face Moisturiser Spf30 is £16.00 on BeautyBay*
I’ve been trying to find more affordable sunscreens this year so that people have no excuse to not use SPF! This led me to the Revolution Skincare Protecting Boost SPF30. I have many thoughts on this so let’s get started
Revolution Skincare Protecting Boost SPF30 is a cream formula and chemical based SPF. It has niacinamide and shea butter to protect and moisturise the skin.
As usual, I use SPF as the last step in my AM routine. I do not like this SPF at all! The only good thing about this is the fact that its 100% invisible on dark skin. So here are my issues with it:
It’s supposed to be moisturising but I find that it actually makes my skin feel dry. I have used it with and without a moisturiser underneath and it’s still the same. I have the one for normal to oily skintypes which is my skin type!
It’s a matte finish and I usually prefer dewy/luminous/glowy finish
It’s a bit difficult to blend around the hairline. In my demo, you can see some white patches around my hairline even though I’m trying to blend it in.
For an SPF, I find the jar packaging a bit odd. It’s going to be exposed to air and light so much that I wonder if it will still be effective after a while.
The SPF doesn’t state if it’s broad-spectrum but after looking at the ingredients it does protect against both UVA & UVB- THIS SHOULD BE ON THE PACKAGING!
They call this a protecting boost but I’m not sure why? Apart from niacinamide I don’t see any other special ingredients?
View my demo below
I am happy that its invisible on dark skin but in terms of everything else – I’m disappointed. I was hoping to find another good SPF for under a tenner but I guess not!
I wouldn’t recommend this as I have used much better SPFs under £10!
Revolution Skincare Protecting Boost SPF30 is £10 in Boots
You know by now I’m your SPF auntie. I’m that friend always telling people to put on sunscreen lol. Lately I’ve been focused on demoing sunscreens on Instagram and really trying to find more affordable options from Boots/Superdrug so that there is no excuse!
The above quest lead me to Bondi Sands and let me just say I am so glad!
Bondi Sands SPF 50+ Face Sunscreen Lotion is a chemical based sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum protection. It’s also fragrance free and promises moisture, water resistance and a non-greasy finish.
I could not contain my excitement with this SPF! It is 100% invisible on dark skin and leaves a nice dewy finish. It feels light and comfortable on and for such a high SPF it’s non-greasy! To see how it looks and me demoing this product, check out my video below
Verdict- this is one of the best SPFs I have tried UNDER £10! And from now on I will be recommending it! For oiler skin types, this may not work for you in the summer- depending on the type of finish you like but it’s still worth a try. I used this without any moisturiser underneath- I don’t think you need one!
Bondi Sands SPF 50+ Face Sunscreen Lotion is £7.99 on BeautyBay*
Hello everyone, I hope all is well! It’s been a while since I updated my blog because I have been focusing more on creating video content for Instagram. I don’t want to abandon my blog as I still love to blog about stuff so I promise to update it more regularly this year!
Today’s post is a review and demo on a product I really love, the Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel. This is a gentle exfoliant that promises fresher and smoother skin.
I’ve many used many little tubes of this over the past years. By the way, this isn’t the full size, I have been collecting mine in PTR gift sets for a while (they do the best gift sets) and these deluxe travel sizes last a while too.
This is an exfoliating product designed to be used on a clean dry face. I use a generous amount and massage in circular motions all over my face and neck. It’s satisfying to watch it transform into tiny white balls as it lifts dead skin off the face.
The result is smoother and softer skin! Check out my demo below
In summary- this is a good product for those that can’t quite stand acids and don’t want to use scrubs. It’s a good half way point. It’s pricey so either collect in gift sets to determine if you want to invest or there are good k beauty dupes for peeling gels.
I like to use gel/lotion textured moisturisers in the spring and summer when my skins becomes oilier. I decided to try the L’Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser this year as it was one of the more affordable drugstore and popular drugstore option. I have the one for normal to combo skin but it is also available for normal to dry & sensitive skin types.
L’Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser promises
Instantly Refreshes: Immediately absorbed, the water-like texture rehydrates and reinvigorates the skin.
Instantly Locks in Moisture: The formula penetrates deeply for a healthy-looking glow
72hr Recharge It releases continuous hydration and drenches the skin with moisture for up to 72 hours.
I have been using this moisturizer in my routine (AM & PM) since March. This is probably the lightest moisturiser I have used. It has a pleasant fresh scent, feels slightly cooling on the skin and sinks into the skin beautifully and easily. There’s no oily residue or stickiness. I have experienced no irritation with this.
This moisturiser layers quite well with other serums I haven’t experienced any pilling. It leaves the skin hydrated with no heavy feeling. I really like the packaging too
I absolutely love this moisturiser and will happily buy it again next year. For extremely oily skin that needs a lightweight non greasy moisturiser this would be excellent! I have actually carried on using it into fall and it still works well. I’m almost out of it!
L’Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser is currently on sale for £6.66 (RRP-£9.99) in Boots
