L’Erbolario – London Launch

January 2, 2015


Around a week before Christmas, I attended the launch of a new beauty brand here in London, more specifically in Islington. The L’Erbolario shop over at 106A Upper Street, is the first in the UK for this well established Italian brand. It is still a fairly unknown name here in England but ask anyone from Italy and they will tell you. That’s what I did and yes, even a guy developer knew about them!

Beauty – DHC Pore Collection

November 19, 2014



Another review today here on the blog. This time we are looking at a couple of new products by DHC, from their Pore Collection.  If you’ve been reading the blog for long enough, you will know that I’ve tried some of their products before and have so far been satisfied with the results.

The Pore Collection products seem to be as good as everything else I have tried before. It promises to help with your skin pores, as they tend to widen with age and sun damage. Having a good cleansing routine also helps with the appearance of your skin as it prevents dirt from accumulating and causing those horrible blackheads or pimples. (Did you see about that guy who popped a 20 year old zit? Why would anyone keep a zit for that long? My next question is, why make a video of it? But, I digress…).

Pore Face Wash – A staple in anyone’s beauty routine, the face wash feels gentle on your skin even though it does have exfoliating agents, baking soda and pear juice alpha hydroxy acids. It lathers quite well and leaves your face feeling refreshed without stripping away at your skin, leaving you with a nice grapfruit scent.

Pore Cleansing Oil – The cleansing oil, as its classic counterpart that I have reviewed previously, did not disappoint me either. As always, all makeup and grime gets dissolved away by the water soluble oil, leaving a clean sensation on the skin. This product really is one of my favourites in my beauty routine and this version of it features nine hydrating oils: coconut, argan, evening primrose, olive, grape seed, jojoba, avocado, sesame and rice bran. As well as the face wash, it has a pleasant grapefruit scent.
