Yes, another addiction. Murad’s Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask was recommended for my skin type by a facialist at my last visit to Therapie. Let me start by saying that this mask is said to suit most skin types Read more…

Four weeks to younger eyes? I’ll give it a bash. Olay’s new Regenerist Advanced Age-Defy Eye Roller has made it into my skincare arsenal. Read more…
I’m obsessed with eye creams at the moment. I will try anything. Admitedly most of what I have tried has been rubbish – not even worth a mention. The latest eye cream on my testing list is Read more…
I had a nice Amy Day yesterday. I popped up to Therapie in Malahide for a well needed facial. My skin has dry patches, oily patches and some major large pore issues. Fine lines have also been on my mind. I haven’t tried any of Dr Murad’s products, which has to be some sort of a sin for a beauty blogger. Read more…

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Olay. In fact they are the only grocery/drugstore skinvcare brand that I rate at all. I have tried quite a few of their products and found a few favourites. Last year it was their Regenerist Serum this year it’s their 7 Effects Moisturiser & Serum Duo. Read more…
My skin type is always changing. It used to be combination oily, then sensitive and dry. Recently it has normalised but I still have a tendency to dryness and the odd spot here and there. I’m starting to be concerned about ageing so have been dabbling in different types of products that will hopefully help with dryness and protect my skin from ageing. For the Read more…
This is a bit of a weird topic for a beauty video but it has been on my mind lately. I assume there are others out there who have pondered on bust creams and a few who have dabbled with lotions and potions.
The product I have been using is Palmer’s Bust Cream. It seems to work well. It makes my skin plump and fresh looking. I do wonder if it has any long term effects though.
Thoughts on bust creams?
I mentioned Origins Mega-Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum in a recent video and received a few requests for a full review. I was of course happy to oblige :)
This products full title is Dr Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum. What a mouthful. It’s designed to visibly reduce dark spots and discolorations and prevents them from reappearing.
I have been using the products for 5 weeks now and I love it!
The effects I noticed on my skin
- Smoother and clearer skin (the most noticeable improvement I have come across from a product)
- My skin looked noticeable more radiant and glowing
- It left my skin less oily
- It lightened my pregnancy mask marks from my last pregnany
- It has lessened the discolouration from acne scarring on my chin
- Makes my skin feel firmer
- Left no residue or oiliness on my skin. It feels invisible.
Needless to say, I’m a fan. The bottle is 30ml. I apply one pump over my face morning and evening. Based on my rate or usage it might last 2 months. For people with greater discoloration you can apply up to four times a day. I would imagine you might only get a month out of the bottle in this instance.
The ingredients in this product works. I suspect this is not only down to the choice of ingredients but also the quantity and quality of them. I have heard a few people have issues with dryness using this product – this may be down to sensitivity tot ingredients perhaps? I have sensitive skin and I had absolutely no issues.
I’m more confident sans make-up but the best part is less concealer and a lighter coverage base. It’s worth it for the radiance and glow alone. As a testament to this I just recorded a video on my Everyday Foundation Routine and I use a tinted moisturiser. I never thought I would be in a position to put down the foundation bottle. I’m converted.
Now, the downside. It costs €62. I buy Origins products from Debenhams if anyone is wondering where they’re on sale here. The bottle is 30ml, it feels small but then again it’s a serum not a cream.
This product is well worth a try if you have any sort of discolouration. I am very happy with the results and have already sent a few friends to pick up a bottle. I always feel a little bad when I rave about an expensive product, but this is truly worth it.
Any Origins fans?
