Review: Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner

Image
Earlier this year, I purchased one of the Caroline Hirons Cult Beauty Box. The set included a few fill size items from her favourites including the Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner.

Product Claims: This is the ultimate skin quencher for complexions that often feel tight and uncomfortably dry. It’s good for those with ageing concerns, as its star ingredient - CoQ-10 - works to boost the skin’s natural repair and defence mechanisms for a smoother complexion over time. It also contains hyaluronic acid (an impressive humectant), which works to help the skin retain much-needed moisture, while soothing aloe vera, chamomile and cucumber keep skin calm and contented. Think of this as a skin-softening precursor to your serum or moisturiser.

Ingredients: Purified water (aqua), Aloe Barbadensis, Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluronic Acid, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile), Salvia Officinalis (Sage), Carica Papaya Leaf Extract, Cucums Sativus (Cucumber) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Flower Oil, Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglyce…

Review: Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil

Image
Sunday Riley's Juno facial oil is one of my favorites. Although I've finished my bottle, a repurchase is in the near future.

Product Claims: Formulated with a botanically active blend of a cold-pressed powerhouse of superfood seed oils, this formula nourishes the skin with antioxidants, vitamins, essential amino acids, omegas 3, 6, and 9, and naturally soothing agents for a luminous, radiant complexion. Vitamins A and C help to brighten the skin’s appearance for healthy-looking vibrancy, while they fortify the skin with antioxidants to support anti-aging. The oil sinks in, leaving skin hydrated, protected, and ultra-soft for a glowing result.

Ingredients: Rubus Fruticosus (Cold Pressed Blackberry) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Corymbosum (Cold Pressed Blueberry) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Cold Pressed Chardonnay Grape Seed Oil) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cold Pressed Cranberry) Seed Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Cold Pressed Red Raspberry) Seed Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Cold Pressed Wild Ca…

First Impressions: Whamisa Organic Flowers Toner Deep Rich

Image
In the past year, I've completely changed my approach to skincare, focusing on better ingredients that target my needs. About a month and a half ago, I had another bad break out, as a result of stress, lack of sleep, poor eating and inadequate water consumption. Every bad thing you can do that messes up your skin, I had done it, and my face showed it.

To expedite the clearing of my skin, I upped my acid toner usage and switched from Pixi Glow Tonic to Biologique Recerche P50 Lotion, which is a very strong and effective toner. So I wanted a moisturising toner to soothe my skin afterwards, and I came across the Whamisa toners in a Gothamista video (here). The ingredients list and reviews were so impressive it seemed like it might work as a post-acid hydrating step.

Ingredients:
*Aloe Maculata Leaf Extract (93.9%), Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, *Glycerin (0.9%), *Chrysanthemum Morifolium Flower Extract (0.5%), *Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract (0.5%), *Persea Gratissima (Avocado) …

Empties: Update #15 (Mini Reviews Included)

Image
I've been unintentionally hoarding a stash of empties. In an effort to cut down on the clutter, I'm finally posting about them. This post is mainly skincare, and I'll do another with hair and body products.

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser:
This didn't work for me at all. It's supposed to be a warming gel cleanser, but "the warmth" was gone by the time my hands reached my face. It didn't cleanse well; I was still left with makeup residue on my face. Plus it stained my Clarisonic brush heads. I have one or two more sample bottles, but definitely not purchasing a full size.

CAOLION Premium Blackhead Steam Pore Pack:
I can't review this because it's separated and I've only used it twice. This is partially my fault because I just had it sitting in the drawer for few months. However, it was still within the time stated on the jar so I'm not particularly keen on trying it again.

CAOLION Premium Pore Original Pack:
