Review | Aromatherapy Associates | Revitalising face oil

I have heard so much about Aromatherapy Associates prior to trying this product. I have heard about this brand for a long time, especially their very famous bath oils. But I never pull the plunge to try anything from them because they are quite a luxury one. I didn’t want to commit to spend that kind of money before knowing it is really good. So what … Continue reading Review | Aromatherapy Associates | Revitalising face oil

Review | & other stories | Indienne Sky nail polish

I have been using OPI nail polish for as long as I remembered. I just love OPI they are like M.A.C cosmetics‘ equivalent in the world of nail polish. They have every shade possible!

Brow wax experience at Benefit brow bar, Debenhams Newcastle

Last month, I have received Benefit’s goof proof brow pencil, which I have reviewed in my previous post. Along with the brow pencil, I have also got a card that gives me the second brow wax free when I pay full price for the first one. So it’s basically a 2 for 1 deal. To be honest, I wouldn’t really consider going to Benefit’s brow bar … Continue reading Brow wax experience at Benefit brow bar, Debenhams Newcastle
