KOREAN BEAUTY Too Cool For School – Artclass by Rodin

KOREAN BEAUTY Too Cool For School – Artclass by Rodin

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. This is the second month that I have taken part, a couple of the previous items that I reviewed in July were Too Cool For School Hot Girl Lash and May Coop Raw Sauce. Today I am talking about the fabulous Artclass By Rodin* contouring powder compact from Too Cool For School. This is the second product that I’ve tried from this brand and it’s fast becoming one of my favourite Korean beauty brands. Rodin was a French sculptor who lived between 1840 and 1917. I’m not too sure what he’d have thought about having his name put to a make-up product, but I can see why...

KOREAN BEAUTY Too Cool For School – Hot Girl Lash

KOREAN BEAUTY Too Cool For School – Hot Girl Lash

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. The first product that I want to tell you about is this Hot Girl Lash* coloured mascara from Too Cool For School. It comes in three different colours – Nuts Brown, Raspberry Pink and Royal Blue – and I have been testing out the Royal Blue shade. Coloured mascaras are no longer throwbacks from the 1980s… you may have recently seen that Benefit have launched coloured versions of their bestseller They’re Real Mascara, and this Royal Blue Hot Girl Lash is really similar. The blue shade is quite subtle and understated, not too bright, it just gives lashes a hint of colour and the hourglass brush shape...

Zuzka Natural Beauty – Skincare Selection

Zuzka Natural Beauty – Skincare Selection

The name “Zuzka”  is slovakian for Susan, and Zuzka Natural Beauty was named by owner Susan Kohutova inspired by her Slovakian husband. Medical research shows that significant amounts of cosmetic ingredients (including some carcinogenic substances) penetrate the skin & end up in the blood stream – with this in mind, only certified organic herbs, plants & flowers free from pesticides & chemicals are used in Zuzka cosmetics. They are also free from harsh detergents, sodium lauryl sulphate, synthetic ingredients, parabens, animal ingredients or artificial fragrance. I was sent three Zuzka skincare products to try – Organic Precious Oil, Coconut Cream Cleanser and Cool Blue Contour Day Cream.     Organic Precious Oil Created for oily/problematic skin Organic Precious Oil contains calendula, soya & jojoba oils blended with organic essential oils including lavender, tea tree & lemongrass. The citrusy scent of the lemongrass really comes through, it smells divine and warming. I have combination skin with an oily chin and nose and I regularly suffer with spots and blemishes. I’ve been applying...

Tesco – Wake Up Cool Mint Shower Creme

Tesco – Wake Up Cool Mint Shower Creme

I love being able to pick up good value bodycare essentials at the supermarket while I do my weekly shop, so today I have for you a review of Tesco Wake Up Cool Mint Shower Creme*. If I have a shower in the morning I think it’s really important to use something zingy to help wake me up and prepare me for the rest of the day and this Shower Creme really hits the spot – it contains both mint and tea tree and smells just like an After Eight mint! Yum… It’s definitely got a thin creamy consistency rather than a gel one, but it seems to thicken up once you add water. You do need to use quite a bit to get a good foam but it leaves the skin feeling really clean and refreshed. The sugary mint scent is lovely too, it smells good enough to eat. Tesco Wake Up Cool Mint Shower Creme is really easy to use in the shower, it’s got a textured...

Anatomicals – Spray Misty For Me Facial Spritz

Anatomicals – Spray Misty For Me Facial Spritz

This Spray Misty For Me Facial Spritz from new trendy brand Anatomicals was in my June Glossybox. It arrived on a really hot day so I tried it out pretty much straight away. The Facial Spritz can be used on the face to refresh and cool you down when it is hot. Unfortunately the mist isn’t really fine enough for use on the face, giving more of a squirt than a spritz! But it could also be used on the rest of the body – a quick spray on the chest and wrists really helps to cool me down. Plus, if you keep it in the fridge it has even more cooling power. The ingredients of this Facial Spritz include mint, rose, lavender and witch hazel, all intended to help your skin feel fresh and cool. It has a gentle scent a bit like the smell of baby wipes – I’m not too keen on the scent myself, but it’s not really unpleasant. I do love the idea of...
