Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist Review

Pixi Hydrating Milky MistI’ve been using this spray toner/mist for quite some time now and having re-purchased I thought it was time to finally write that promised review.

Skincare Jargon Busting: Types of Spot!

Skincare Jargon Busting
A normal hair follicle and oil gland

Spots. Pimples. Zits. Breakouts. Acne. Whatever you call them, we all get them from time to time. We dread the sight of them rearing their ugly heads just when we least need it and can’t wait for them to go away!

Hygiene is one of the most important things when it comes to make-up application. It is also one of the most basic lessons we learn in school as artists or therapists. So why does it go out of the window so freely?

Bendy Investigates: The Trouble With Coconut Oil

The Trouble With Coconut OilCoconut oil. You must have lived under a rock for the last 5 years or so if you haven’t been told of its alleged magical properties. People have used it for everything, and not just in their recipes. Rubbing into their skin, hair and lips for such purposes as removing make-up,  moisturising, teeth whitening, hair oil, an alternative to eye cream or as a lip balm.

Coconut oil is not as innocent or beneficial as it may at first seem though. I’m going to tell you my experience and then give you the science. Continue reading
