Beauty Pie Plantastic Apricot Butter Cleansing Balm Review

The Beauty Pie Plantastic Apricot Butter Cleansing Balm is one product I have always wanted to try since I started my BP challenge! This balm was always sold out and I was able to finally get my hands on it later this year. This post will be a full review of the ever hyped cleansing balm- is it worth it?

This cleansing balm is formulated with rose seed oil, Vitamin E and apricot butter, it promises to remove all traces of makeup and leave the skin feeling clean and moisturised.


I started using this cleansing balm after my SR Blue Moon balm was not working out for me. The texture of this balm is literally like butter! It’s so soft and melts so easy into the palms and on the skin. It has a very pleasant scent and I have experienced no irritation with it. The balm comes with a small scoop and a muslin cloth

The Apricot Cleansing balm melts so easily into an oil when massaged onto the skin. I find the balm very effective and removes all traces of makeup including liquid lipsticks and mascara. This balm rinses off well, I won’t say it rinses off particularly clean as I do feel some residue but it’s not oily or greasy, my skin feels moisturised after rinsing. I do however prefer to remove the balm with my Primark makeup remover cloth and together ALL traces of makeup come off! I’m not a huge fan of muslin cloths so I think I threw the paired one away after the first use lol

A little goes a long way with this balm although I am almost certain I use a lot each time! The balm has enough ‘slip’ so I really enjoy also using it for a mini facial massage when removing my makeup. Usually, I also throw out the mini scoops in cleansing balms but I am really enjoying using the scoop with this balm. Can we talk packaging? The balm is housed in a luxe heavy glass tub so it really gives this product a luxurious high end feel. Plus you get a huge 100ml which will last a while! This is my first cleanse in the evenings, followed by the Murad AHA/BHA Cleanser


I fell in love with the balm from first use and it’s easy to see why it’s always sold out! At the member’s price of £12.10, it’s well worth the hype and every penny! It’s an effective cleansing balm which removes all traces of makeup leaving the skin moisturised. I prefer to remove it with a cloth rather than rinse off. Definitely, something I would recommend if you love cleansing balms and something I will be repurchasing in my next BP haul ( btw I haven’t done a haul in a while because I am saving up for a nice Christmas splurge! the haul will come soon.)

Beauty Pie Plantastic Apricot Butter Cleansing Balm is £12.10 for members and £50 for non-members on BeautyPie

Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Deep Purifying Cleanser

Beauty Pie! It’s been a while since my last BP review. I am still a member and I have been allowing my allowance to roll over as I am planning a splurge soon. This cleanser is part of the second haul I did as part of my BP Challenge.

Super Healthy Skin Deep Purifying Cleanser is formulated with kaolin and montmorillonite clay for deeply cleanse the skin to brighten, clarify and smooth the skin.

Beauty Pie Plantastic Micro peeling Super Drops Review


I have been using this on and off since March as a second cleanse. The texture is a creamy texture which produces a gentle foam when massaged into the skin. I am not a huge fan of the cleanser.

Using this cleanser has made me realise any product with kaolin clay leaves a slight cast on my skin and leaves it looking dull. This cleanser does that (and another mask I used with kaolin clay in it). I find this cleanser difficult to wash off and it takes a few rinses to ensure it’s all washed off and there is no cast. For a cleanser with clay, I was expecting a different texture, maybe something thicker and creamier without the foam. Whilst the Super Healthy Skin Deep Purifying Cleanser doesn’t produce a lot of produce it produces some.

In terms of its cleansing power, it’s mildly effective. I don’t find the cleanser stripping but it doesn’t add any moisture either. I have normal to combination skin. The cleanser can also be used as a mask which I have tried but I did not like it.


I am not a huge fan of the cleanser. I have been using it intermittently since March but more consistently in the last 2 months because I wanted to form my full review on it. I am not a huge fan of this product. You get a very generous amount, I don’t think I am halfway through the tub yet. I don’t feel like it has made any improvements to my skin.

Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Deep Purifying Cleanser is £5.78 for members on Beauty Pie


Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence serum review

The Beauty Pie challenge may be over but the reviews will keep coming! Today’s post will be a full review of the Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence serum I picked up in the second month of my challenge.

Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence serum is an antioxidant serum with Vitamin C, raspberry stem cells, Thymeluen 4 BG 100 and Echinacea extract to help fight free radicals, soothe and tone skin to maintain optimal health. It also has shea butter for moisture and softening.


I am an antioxidant fanatic! Ever since I discovered Resveratrol and Ferulic acid from The Ordinary and researching more on antioxidants and their role in skincare, I have never left the house without them. I have been using the Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence serum since I picked it up in February, in the mornings underneath my moisturiser.

The serum itself has a very watery lightweight texture and I have no issues with it sinking into my skin. It adds a bit of hydration and leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth. I have had no issues with this piling or combining it with other products. I still mix my moisturiser with a few drops of TO Resveratrol and Ferulic acid (the more antioxidants the merrier) and still had no issues with piling. I have not experienced any irritation with the products.

The thing with this serum and some products is that they do not necessarily have a ‘visible effect’ on the skin i.e. whilst I absolutely love this serum I cannot say I have noticed a huge improvement in my skin in terms of radiance or brightness due to the serum. I know it’s protecting my skin because the ingredients are formulated to do so and obviously Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant. Looking at the ingredient list, the ingredients are in a good position meaning there’s enough of the key ingredients for me to experience benefits ( the first 10- 15 ingredients of any product are responsible for the claims of the product)  I can say that it’s worked with the other ingredients in my routine to help my skin be more radiant following a bout of hormonal breakouts in March


This is an antioxidant serum I absolutely love! I love how easy it is to use and combines with other products in my routine. I wanted a serum I could use in the morning underneath moisturiser but also still use my antioxidant from the ordinary without experiencing piling and this allows me to do that. It is slightly hydrating and leaves the skin glowing but no oily residue. I am almost done with this bottle, oh let’s talk about how lux that bottle is. It’s heavy and feels expensive plus the pump has never let me down! I am already gearing up to get a 2nd bottle, I think this will be a staple in my routine for a while ( I know they are releasing a Vitamin C serum/lotion soon!).

I would recommend if you want to start using antioxidants in your routine.

Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence serum is £ 9.50 for members on Beauty Pie*

Beauty Pie Brand Review

Hey guys, so I am very excited for this post because it’s been a long time coming! I started my BP skincare challenge in January but I have been planning it since November.  After the challenge I promised a brand review of Beauty Pie and here it is! I will be talking about products and the concept of BP and asking if it’s all worth it! Beware this is a long post! I will link all the reviews.


In total, I have tried 9 BP products, most of which are best sellers. I have full reviews on 6 products.

My favourite products are the Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser, Super Healthy skin daily moisture lotion and the SPF. I’m not as excited about the Super Healthy Skin clay cleanser. It feels slightly drying on my skin and I am not a fan of the texture.

For serums, the Plantastic Micro peeling drops I picked up is another fan favourite however for me it’s ok. These drops are supposed to target spots and texture but after experiencing a bout of texture and breakouts and using this, there was no difference so I reverted back to my trusted TO Salicylic acid and Niacinamide. I will keep testing this out and a full review will be up later in the year. I was also using the Triple HA &peptide serum very popular but I was underwhelmed. I am currently using the Super Healthy Skin daily Defence serum in the mornings. I haven’t noticed any benefits yet but this is still very early days. I have also used the Super Retinols serum and moisturiser and I feel slightly underwhelmed by them.

For face masks, I only picked up one- the very popular Fruitzyme 5 min facial. I have used it a few times and it is really nice. It reminds me of Pixi Peel & Polish. I will bring a full review of this soon.


Beauty Pie is basically a beauty club, you pay for access to some of the world’s best labs which in turn gives you the products at member’s price instead of the full ‘retail’ price. You also get a monthly allowance which limits how much you can spend. When shopping, the full retail price is deducted from your monthly allowance but you pay the member’s price plus shipping. I decided to get the £20 monthly membership which gives me a monthly allowance of £200.

Beauty Pie Plantastic Micro peeling Super Drops Review


The Highs and Lows

I have been a BP member for 4 months and I do plan on keeping it for a little while longer for new releases but I will reduce my membership to £5 per month which will give me an allowance of £50.  A few things I have noticed, let’s start with the lows

  • Waiting time for stock– some products take a very long time to come back in stock. For instance, I have been waiting for the Plantastic cleansing balm for the last 5 months! (November-March) I also run out of the Japanfusion cleanser in January and wanted to repurchase it straight away however it went out of stock with an estimate back in stock time of April
  • Costs– the RRP for some prices are very expensive and since this is what comes out of your allowance it has an impact on the number of products you can get. For a £200 allowance, I could roughly get 3 or 4 skincare products with a little rollover. I think the makeup items are priced lower but if you only had a £100 or £50 allowance you would be very limited in the number of skincare products you can get. Real cost of BP– it’s easy to forget the membership fees but the ‘real’ cost month is membership fees + products + delivery
  • Delivery charge– BP is one of the few beauty websites I know that do not offer free delivery. Most beauty sites and in fact most sites I know offer free shipping OR after a certain spend. This means if you were to make two orders in a month like I did (because I made a mistake ordering two of the same retinol moisturiser instead of the serum) you would pay two lots of delivery.  I do have to say that it is a flat rate charge and the dispatch time and delivery is quite fast.

On the brighter side of things

  • Products– I love luxury skincare but I do not like the high price tag. BP allows you to get these products at a lower budget-friendly price. As much as I love the JapanFusion cleanser, I would not want to spend the full £35 on it
  • Product dupes– I read a few reviews that say BP has a few dupes for some high-end products. Most of it was makeup dupes but I haven’t tried any of the makeup. In terms of skincare, the Fruitzyme mask reminds me of the Pixi Peel & Polish. They have very similar textures and claim to do similar things however the member price of the BP mask is only £7 and the full price of the Pixi is £26.
  • Your monthly allowance rolls over! If you don’t finish your allowance for the month, this is added unto your next monthly allowance so you can save up your allowances and do a splurge. They also offer one-off top ups if you really wanted to get more products
  • PIE DAYS– PIE DAYS are days where they offer products to members without paying the retail fee hence you save your allowance!
  • Social media– they are quite good at updating members with new products and restock which is good. The owner is also very active on there and I often find her in the comments replying to questions etc( lol I sound creepy ) but I know because she’s answered a few of mine


I will keep my membership going probably till June because they have some exciting products in the pipeline. I am reducing to £5 which is a £50 allowance and since I will have a lot of rollovers this should be fine. I want to purchase the Plantastic balm( still waiting for it to come back), double phase cleanser and the bio breathable primer and the sample perfume set – watch out for more reviews soon

What do you guys think? Have you tried BP or are you already a member of BP? Do you think it’s worth it? Will you consider it now? If you are a member let me know your thoughts on the products!

This is my full and honest review of Beauty Pie, the products and the concept. It’s definitely a good and exciting idea but there is room for improvement.

Beauty Pie Super Retinol Serum and Moisturiser Review

It’s almost the end of my BP 2 month challenge and I have A LOT of things to say! Before I get into the overall brand review (coming next week), I have my full review on the BP Super Retinols I have been using every night since January. I decided to review both of them together as it’s been designed to work together. I am also almost out of them so it’s a good time for reviewing. This will be a long post

BP Super Retinol uses encapsulated retinol which according to them protects it from degradation, increases stability and improves delivery into the skin. They also say it’s been designed to be used for prolonged periods of time and it avoids irritation. The super retinols also have other amazing ingredients like ceramides, vitamin C and shea butter which all work together to improve your skin.

Retinol strengths.

The Super Retinol Ceramide Boost Anti Ageing Face serum has 3% encapsulated retinol which they say is equivalent to 0.09% pure retinol.

The Super Retinol plus Vitamin C Night Renewal Moisturiser has 1% encapsulated retinol which they say is equivalent to 0.03% pure retinol


I have been using the retinols every night for the last 7 ½ weeks and I think I have just about enough to get me to 8 weeks. I use about 2 to 3 pumps over my face and neck (sometimes chest) and layer the same amount of the moisturiser on top of the serum.

I should start by saying I have experienced no irritation with these retinols

The texture of the serum is a light lotion consistency and it sinks in well and easily. The Moisturiser is a thicker consistency but it isn’t heavy on the skin. It pairs well over the retinol serum and I experience no piling. The moisturiser feels nice on the skin and also feels slightly hydrating although it doesn’t last throughout the night because I realised when I do my PM routine right after I get home from work, around 6pm, by 10pm I would need to use oil so my skin doesn’t look dry. I don’t mind this though and it doesn’t pill under the oil.

I have never used encapsulated retinol or layered two retinols in a routine so although I was nervous, I was expecting great results but I think I got average performance and I will explain why. With layering the two strengths and the added vitamin C and ceramides I was expecting a complete ‘overhaul’ of my skin. The main reason I chose to use the retinols was hyperpigmentation and I feel as though there has not been a difference or improvement in the hyperpigmented areas. In terms of brightening, my skin overall looks brighter but I feel as though I have achieved better brightening with a vitamin C derivative alone (MAP). The biggest improvement I can see is that my skin does look a lot smoother, not that I had a lot of texture before but I can tell the appearance of my skin looks smoother. I did still experience some texture during the time I was using it (texture not caused by the retinols) but the retinol couldn’t ‘shift’ that either.

The super retinols are designed to produce results over time and that is definitely true because I started seeing any improvements after the 4-5 week mark.


It’s really a bittersweet experience. I love the textures of these retinols and the fact that I experienced no irritation from them. In terms of performance, I am slightly disappointed that it didn’t have an impact on my hyperpigmentation but my skin does appear smoother.

The biggest question now is: are these worth the price?

The serum and the moisturiser together remind me of Paula’s Choice 1% clinical strength retinol because they have similar ingredients. I have the PC retinol and I must say I really love it, it produces quicker results and I also experience no irritation from that. The texture of the BP serum is also very similar.  I would suggest if you are not a BP member and want to try these retinols, I would recommend going for the PC 1% because it will work out much cheaper than buying the BP together or even just 1 of the BP retinol. PC is also a higher conc and you get quicker results.

If you are a BP member these retinols work out to be about £8. The Ordinary, The Inkey List and other budget skincare brands also have retinols around this price. Personally, I have used the Ordinary 2% Granactive Emulsion which I really liked which is also £8. The BP will work out just a little bit more because you are paying a monthly membership fee so that’s something to factor in.

My final verdict is: whilst I love the textures of these I would not repurchase them because I was expecting a lot more from these retinols. They have improved the smoothness of my skin but didn’t have an impact on hyperpigmentation. They are moderate strength and these may be great if you are really nervous about starting with retinols. I do have another super retinol moisturiser I bought by mistake because they look so similar! There were a few times I would go to use the moisturiser but reached for the serum instead because they literally look the same. But I won’t be using that any time soon.

So, guys, this is the final review from the original BP routine I started with in January! The new products I picked up at the start of feb will be briefly reviewed in the brand overview post but I will also bring full reviews of them later in the year. I have reviews on Japanfusion Cleanser & Hydra Prep Lotion. Super Healthy Skin Daily Lotion and Invisible SPF 25.  I also have a review on the Triple HA serum.

Beauty Pie Skincare Routine Update

1 month down, 1 to go! This is the 2nd and final month of my Beauty Pie 2 month skincare challenge and I decided for the 2nd month to get some new products to test ( also because I have run out of some stuff lol). The aim of my challenge was to test out as many BP products from all the different collections, check out the introductory post here. So far, I have two reviews up Japanfusion Cleanser and Hydra Prep Lotion.

New Beauty Pie products

For the month of Feb, I decided to pick up and use some new BP products! For my morning routine, I now have the Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence Serum (previously using the Triple Hyaluronic HA & Peptide serum). I LOVE vitamin C so it was only natural I picked this up (it’s also the only Vitamin C serum they have).

For cleansers I have the Super Healthy Skin Deep Purifying Clay Cleanser, I will not be using this very morning because I find it slightly difficult to spread on dry skin and I am not the biggest fan of the texture. You guys know how I feel about the Japan Fusion cleanser however it is sold out 😦 . I also wanted to get the Double Phase cleanser BUT I have finished my allowance already.  I am currently using the B Creamy face cleanser or the Simple Moisturising Face wash for AM cleansing.

For my evening routine, I have also picked up the Frutizyme Five Minute Facial. This is one of their bestselling face masks so I am very excited to try it out! I also bought the Plantastic Micro peeling drops. This will be used as and when I experience texture in place of my TO Salicylic acid ( I LOVE the TO Salicylic acid so this BP serum HUGE boots to fill! Dermalogica Breakout serum couldn’t fill that spot lol). My first impressions of this is not great but I will keep trying it

Quick update on the challenge

I have finished 1 product and I have a tiny bit left of my super Healthy Skin daily Moisture Lotion. I have two reviews on the blog and a further two coming within the next week or two. I am leaving serum reviews towards the end of the 2 month period, that way I would have a much better and informative review for you guys.

That’s all folks! I also picked up a re purchase of the Daily Moisture Lotion but I won’t actually be using it straight away. There is a DHC cream I really have to use up before June this year. Again because my allowance is finished I could pick up another day cream for review but not to worry even when my challenge is over, I will still be doing BP reviews here and there.

PS- I am not really feeling the new products I picked up. I’m trying to not let my first impressions skew my thoughts regarding them but so far after a few uses, I am not impressed. Let’s see

See you soon!

Beauty Pie Japan Fusion Pure Transforming Cleanser Review

Hey guys! I have an update on my Beauty Pie 2 month skincare challenge! Read all about the challenge and why I am doing it here. This post will be a full review on the Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser which was my AM & PM cleanser in the routine. I have now FINISHED the cleanser! I will tell you why..

The Japanfusion Cleanser is part of their Japanfusion range which is all about J beauty and it is all about antioxidants, vitamin C and barrier boosting ingredients. The range is also big on moisture. It’s only a 4 product range and I have two of the products. The cleanser is described as super light, delicate and effective against makeup. They say it’s a gel formula that turns into an oil and finally a milk with warm water added.


I used this as my AM & PM cleanser as well as a makeup remover and I used a lot of it! I am not surprised I have run out of it already. It comes in a 100ml tube.

It is a delicate soft scent and it’s very very pleasant to use. They describe the formula as a gel but I feel like it’s more of a creamy texture. I 100% agree that the cleanser does transform to the textures they promise and I actually enjoy watching it go through the changes. I also 100% agree is it super light on the skin and very gentle.

As a cleanser, it removes all oils, dirt etc without leaving the skin dry or tight. Infact my skin feels very comfortable afterwards and looks healthy. It is very easy to get the creamy texture into oil, I just massage it around my face and neck. When I’m ready, I add a little warm water and it instantly turns into a milk. I LOVE that it also rinses 100% clean, no residue! And it is VERY easy to rinse away. The texture feels amazing on the skin.

As a makeup remover, the Japan Fusion cleanser is a very effective one! It begins to break down makeup as soon as you begin it massage it on to the skin. As it turns into the oil, most of the makeup is broken down. For makeup removing, I remove the cleanser with a makeup cloth for the first rinse then go in again with the cleanser massage it into oil then add water to rinse it away. It’s much better this way and it is also easily removed with a cloth. I tried to do 2 rinses but the cleanser it much easier used on dry skin.


This is 100% worth the hype! It is so delicate, so gentle and effective and an all-around pleasure to use! This is definitely something I would repurchase however it is out of stock! I also wish they did this in a bigger size! It has taken 19 days for me to finish this cleanser but bear in mind I did use it twice a day every day ( there may have been an occasion where I used it 3 times but who’s counting lol) I also used it to remove makeup. Did I use a little more than I should have? Oh absolutely but this is what the Japan Fusion Pure Transforming Cleanser makes you do lol. They say it’s suitable for all skintypes and I think so because it has worked so well with my normal to combo skin. I think dry skins will also love it!

Its packed with skin-loving ingredients, you’ve got your Vitamin C and NMFs plus antioxidants. I will 100% recommend this cleanser if you could only pick one Beauty Pie Cleanser!

For now, I have to switch back to my B Creamy Foam cleanser whilst I wait for my monthly allowance to renew to get a new cleanser! I will be going for the Double Phase Daily Deep Rinse Off Facial Cleanser. I am also still keeping an eye out for the Plantastic Cleansing Balm which is still out of stock!

So, guys, that’s a quick update on my Beauty Pie Challenge! I have the first empty of the challenge and it’s not even the end of month 1 but tbh January always feels like a year in itself lol! I absolutely love this cleanser it’s something I will definitely be stockpiling! There are two more products I will be reviewing by the end of the month/early Feb as I have used it enough times to form opinions about them and I don’t see them changing.

Japan Fusion Pure Transforming Cleanser is £6.24 for members or £25 for non-members. Check out the cleanser here*

Beauty Pie 2 Month Skincare Challenge


To start 2019 off in style, I will be doing a 2 month Beauty Pie skincare challenge! I have been eyeing Beauty Pie for a while now and the Black Friday sale was what finally got me on board (offered 1st month free plus £50 extra bonus). I decided to do a 2-month skincare challenge in the New Year so here we are!

Beauty Pie is basically a beauty club, you pay for access to some of the world’s best labs which in turn gives you the products at member’s price instead of the full ‘retail’ price. You also get a monthly allowance which limits how much you can spend. When shopping, the full retail price is deducted from your monthly allowance but you pay the member’s price plus shipping. I decided to get the £20 monthly membership which gives me a monthly allowance of £200. I chose this membership to allow me to get all the products in time for January to start the challenge! Let’s get into the challenge!

Beauty Pie 2-month challenge!

From Jan 1 to 28th Feb, 95% of my AM & PM routine will be Beauty pie skincare products. 95% because there are some products Beauty pie don’t have, for instance, they don’t have a toner. The only hydrating masks they have are sheet masks and I don’t want to pay the price they have for it. I am also not getting any eye creams from them because I have a lot I need to use up. For my AM toners, I will be using hydrating toners and acid toners in the evening. If I happen to run out of a Beauty Pie product, I will review it and try another similar product (where available) so I can use as many of their products as possible.  By the end of February, I will have reviews of every product I have used and a brand review to summarise it all!

Here are the initial products I will be beginning with:

Morning routine

Cleanser– Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser

Toner– Simple Soothing toner then afterwards any hydrating toner

Essence– Japanfusion Hydra Prep Lotion (the only essence they have so depending on how much I like it, I will either repurchase or switch to a face mist) I just need to finish my B. Essence Lotion first, I have about 3 days’ worth to use

Serum– Triple Hyaluronic Ha & Peptide Serum

Morning Cream– Super Healthy Skin™ Daily Moisture Lotion

SPF– Super Healthy Skin™ Ultralight UVA/UVB SPF25 (Only SPF they have. I usually use SPF 30 and above but since its winter, the SPF 25 should be ok. I will also be using my Ferulic Acid plus Resveratrol from The Ordinary which provides antioxidant support) I also need to finish my Glossier SPF 30 sunscreen. I think I have about a week’s worth left.

Evening routine

Makeup remover– Nip Fab Cleansing cream/ makeup wipes

Cleanser– Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser as a second cleanser when I have makeup on or as the first cleanser when there is no makeup.

Toner– Nip Fab Extreme Pads then afterwards any acid toner – I may switch to a hydrating toner depending on how well the retinol combines with my acid toner. I have done this combination before and my skin takes well to it, but since this is a new formula of retinol I am trying, I will have to play around with the combination.

Essence– Japanfusion™ Hydra Prep Lotion

Serum– Super Retinol Ceramide-Boost Anti-Aging Face Serum & Triple Hyaluronic Ha & Peptide Serum (as I feel like it but it will mostly be the retinol serum)

Night Cream – Super Retinol (+ Vitamin C) Night Renewal Moisturizer

Oil– Beuti Beauty Elixir (review pending) as and when I feel like it

I choose 2 months because with any new skincare routine or new products you really need 6- 8 weeks to see any improvements or long-term benefits. This time period allows me to really test the claims of each product so I can form a full and honest opinion. Everything was purchased with my money.

I’m really looking forward to this challenge! I will be doing updates on Instagram so make sure you follow me! My skin is pretty tough so I hope I don’t experience any irritation with these products. I am still a member of Beautypie, I am hoping the challenge will allow me to fall in love with some of their products so I can stockpile them before I cancel my membership. I really wanted to get the Apricot Cleansing Balm but it was sold out and they said it may be another 6 weeks before it comes back in stock! I will get it as soon as it comes back as it is one of their best selling products. I’m not sure if I will venture into their makeup collection yet but if I really love their skincare I may just give them a try!

Let’s start 2019 with great skincare! Wishing you all the best for this New Year!
