Acnemy Postzit Correcting Serum

“I’ve always had issues with redness and spots even into adulthood. It’s such a pain and my regular cleansing and moisturising has never really been enough to shift it. I tried the Acnemy Postzit Correcting Serum and damn, it cleared my redness so fast. The first time I used it I applied some in the morning with moisturiser and it instantly just really calmed everything right down. There’s some great products out there at the moment but this one has the best packaging by far (always a bonus) and it’s working! It’s working I say!”

Davines Solu Sea Salt Scrub Cleanser

“I have a love-hate relationship with my hair. Sometimes I love that it requires very little maintenance, is quite healthy, and is naturally straight, then other times I hate that it can be flat, prone to getting greasy, and my scalp can be a little temperamental. Because of this, I usually take the less is more approach, sticking to just shampoo and conditioner with the occasional hair mask, but recently, I’ve been looking for that something extra… That’s where the Davines Solu Sea Salt Scrub Cleanser comes in. Our beauty editor, Grace introduced me to this little gem and wow, it does not disappoint. It’s perfect for cleansing my greasy roots from any build-up, leaving it feeling super clean, fresh, and healthy, all whilst managing to not upset my irritable scalp at the same time. What’s even better is that the sea salt adds a natural boost to my roots, giving some subtle and much needed volume to my usual flat as a pancake look. How I survived before having this in my life I’ll never know – you need it too.”

Glisten Cosmetics Split Liner in Strawberry Cheesecake

“I think most of us have either seen or been part of the graphic eyeliner trend, still going strong as a style fave. To create the unique colourful looks, I find the water activated liners easiest to use – just wet your brush and away you go; no fuss, no hassle and while there are multiple brands in the makeup world to choose from, Glisten Cosmetics have dedicated themselves to ensuring there is a shade for everyone. Covering the entire rainbow, they have every colour you could imagine and if one wasn’t enough, their Split Liner pots give you half and half! Even if you’d prefer to create your own shades – mixing the liners is super easy allowing your creativity to run wild with possibilities.”

Skin Proud Detox Daily AHA Exfoliating Tonic

“I’ve been needing a new daily exfoliator for a while and let me tell you this is it! The Skin Proud Detox Daily AHA Exfoliating Tonic is super gentle on the skin and the light fruity scent is incredible. I’ve already noticed a change in my skins overall appearance! Feeling brighter, lighter and oh so smooth. The tonic has been super easy to work into my daily routine and works really well with my daily faves. BRB ordering my next bottle RN.”

Thank You Farmer Sun Project Water Sun Cream SPF50

“Everyone has a preconception that SPFs are thick, chalky, and clog your pores – granted, not all are created equally and there are definitely some that fit this bill – but in recent years brands have clocked on to the need for lightweight, skin-friendly formulas. With a cooling gel-cream texture, Thank You Farmer’s Sun Project Water Sun Cream SPF50 is exactly that. Its gel-cream texture looks and feels weightless on the skin and creates a smooth base for makeup, while still delivering effective protection. Win, win, win.” 

Grace, Beauty Editor & Content Manager 

Skincare By BEAUTY BAY Butter Cup Cleansing Balm

“I usually opt for a cream or gel cleanser, but I am officially team balm after using the Skincare By BEAUTY BAY Butter Cup Cleansing Balm. It’s the perfect cleanser to gently wash away the day, it melts away makeup so easily and always leaves my skin feeling super soft and hydrated, but most importantly, clean! I love taking a moment to really massage it into the skin and relieve any tension I’ve built up in my jaw and forehead. I have acne prone skin and this doesn’t break me out, so it’s a big hit for me.” 

Chloe, Influencers & PR Manager 

Vush Myth Vibrator

“I have tried many vibrator brands before, but I have been dying to try this brand since seeing Cardi B go crazy for it and it definitely did not disappoint. The packaging and design are so cute and the product itself is amazing, with an adorable storage bag! If you’re looking for something quiet that does the job this is most definitely it. Myth has multiple settings for your choice and preference and is great for both internal and external use. I love Myth!!”

Solgar Magnesium with Vitamin B6 Tablets

“Being veggie, supplements have been part of my daily life for the last five years. But I do get that it’s pretty daunting to know which one you should take, there’s so much on the market right now. I started by witnessing my own symptoms in my day-to-day life, rather than just picking something up because it’s “trending”. For me it’s fatigue and sleepless nights. After reading up on all the science, there was a clear answer, magnesium. I take one or two Solgar Magnesium with Vitamin B6 every night before bed and it honestly gives me such a restful night. I’m currently waiting for my next restock to arrive and my bedtimes are seriously suffering. Plus, there’s so many other benefits to this supplement, such as supporting the nervous system, healthy bones, etc – it’s worth reading up on. I’ve seen Solgar is a top seller in all the major health stores and used by professionals, so I found the brand that I can trust!”

Kiki Health Liquid Chlorophyll

“We’ve seen Liquid Chlorophyll doing the rounds on TikTok for a while now, that dark green, dirty looking water that looks really…delicious. Well, the benefits definitely outweigh the appearance (and taste) for sure. After only using for a few days I felt less bloated than normal, whilst still consuming my normal diet, I felt significantly more energised and less sluggish and my skin had a subtle glow to it! Definitely would recommend and see if it works for you! I’m excited to use it for a longer period of time to see how the benefits progress.”

Superfluid Outli(n)er Marker in Yellow

“It’s becoming even easier to nail the bright eyeliner trend thanks to all of 2021’s colourful new launches – gone are the days of using eyeshadow and a winged liner brush! I love how effortless the Superluid liners are to use – you can’t beat a pen for speed and ease of use. What’s more, the colour is mega pigmented and doesn’t fade or flake off throughout the day. Brb, ordering the blue version.”
