Sometimes I wish I were a scientist. It would help me so much more in understanding all the amazing ingredients and ways of combining them to create the perfect products. If I knew what worked together perfectly and in what amounts then I am sure I could make the most spectacular concoctions. Luckily for all of us skincare obsessives certain brands are trying to do exactly that on our behalf. The latest addition to my life is a brand called HiQ who have introduced me to something new in the form of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) in their Facial Serum. I am lost already just hearing the name which probably explains why I am not a scientist, unlike the two owners of Atlanta based HiQ Cosmetics, one of whom can boast a PHD in chemistry. As I have mentioned before my ears always perk up when I hear things like this in the natural cosmetic industry as it gives a great feeling of trust before you even try the product! Voir l’article
How satisfying is it when you finish a beauty product!? I feel so guilty if I buy a new product and have not even finished the previous one yet. I pin this blame entirely upon the seemingly never-ending sales, promotions, deals and adverts which push me to buy more and more by continually stoking my fear that i might be missing THE bargain (I of course absolve myself of all responsibility in my own mind).

A new season means a new skincare routine! I have been on the hunt for the perfect face moisturiser for the past few weeks as I always swap a few of my products when winter comes. My skin feels very tight and uncomfortable in the cold weather so I like to replace my light face cream, which is more suitable for the warm days, with a richer formula.
Every weekend I like to spend few hours just pampering myself, especially during winter! It’s very cold out there and I much prefer staying at home with a blanket and a cup of tea than confronting the cold weather!
