Review: @dermatica.skin Subscription What is it: Dermatica operates the UK's only dermatology compounding pharmacy providing prescription skincare through the post without the need for an expensive dermatologist consultation or GP referral. My Prescription: Tretinoin & Hydroquinone. My Thoughts: I was intially quite wary about this service being available to the public; not everyone is experienced in skincare and may opt for the strong stuff before trying less intense treatments first. However, those of us who want prescription creams without paying for a dermatology consultation this sounds a genius business plan. The consulation is straight foward and quick but the aspect that calmed my reservations with this service is the final step, before the prescription is written and dispatched you are required to send pictures of your face so they can assess you and make sure you're suitable for treatment. I would like to think they would decline someone not sutiable for treatment, ie an 18 year old wanting tretinoin for anti-aging. I was prescribed 0.025% Tretinoin & 4% Hydroquinone which is very gentle, I experienced zero dryness or irriation so it is good for beginners if you're worried about burning your face off, I was curious how quickly they would increase the strength and i'm glad to say it was unprompted in the following month's prescription so I am now using 0.05% tretinoin & 4% Hydroquinone. Results: After 6 weeks of use I can see an incredible difference in my skin, not necessarily pore size but definitely the texture, congestion and pigmentation. My OH said 'your skin is looking really good' after 3 weeks of use which i've never heard him say in 10 years of being together so it's a miracle worker as far as i'm concerned. Whether long term it's a service I will keep subscribing to time will tell as £22 a month is a lot more than you would pay if you were to get an actual prescription from a doctor yourself, so you're definitely paying for the convenience. If you're wanting to try the service use code: TRIAL-BUNNY for £10 off your first month. (Not spon, just useful) #blogpost #retinol #skincare #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine

OBSESSED BY ...


OBSESSED BY ... ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️

@itcosmeticsuki Matte CC cream - This has quickly become my everyday foundation, it’s not full coverage unless you want to layer it which I don’t, it’s lovely and lightweight on the skin and very creamy to apply unlike other matte bases which apply like rubbing sand on your face and stays put all day.

@pixibeautyuk Rose Ceramide Cream * - Ceramides in skincare help to maintain the skin barrier and retain moisture, I have been using this as a final step in my routine to help lock in all the serum and oil and my skin has been noticeably plumper and softer. The whole rose range from Pixi is fantastic!

@wetnwildbeautyuk Photofocus Pressed Powder - I’ve been searching for an affordable setting powder which doesn’t make my skin look matte, I just want a glow, it alluded me until I tried Wet N Wild for the first time. This is a great powder, at £4.50 a total bargain and available in the U.K. from
@beautybaycom

@imfrom_official Honey Mask - wow, I can’t describe my love for this mask. A. It doesn’t smell like honey which is a great thing it actually smells like banoffee 👍🏻 and b. It soothes, calms and hydrates the skin beyond anything I’ve tried in a mask before. I reached for it when I got a breakout, when my skin was falling off from retinol use and when I managed to give myself a chemical burn (don’t ask), it managed to fix them all! Highly recommend! Available from @bywishtrend

@skinnytan Wonder Serum * - This is a new launch and one I was able to try out before release, I’m not the biggest fake tanner (too lazy) but this product made it effortless, it applied like a dream and gave me the most realistic fake tan I’ve had. Dark without being any kind of tangoed, zero streaks and lasted for a week, I think it could have lasted longer but I have a very strict once a week scrub glove addiction that I can’t shake! I am definitely going to be tanning more often due to it being so easy!!

REVIEW: 23 Years Old



Another brand overview from @stylekorean_global , 23 Years Old focus on age prevention and anti-aging to keep the skin looking 23 years old.

Black Paint Rubar Cleansing Stick - This is my first experience of a stick skin care product, it's so fun! I use this a couple of times a week almost like a mask: paint it on and leave for a minute then use my Foreo Play to work it into the skin and rinse. The reduction in congestion is immediately noticeable and makes my skin feel so clean, this is great every day cleanser for oily skin and as a treatment for drier skins when you need some clairty to the skin.

Cocoon Gold Silky Mask - Containing Soyabean Ferment and Silkworm extract this sheet mask repairs damaged skin, maintains your skin barrier and replenishes moisture levels. I love silk masks because they stick to your skin like glue and this particular mask left my skin feeling amazing for days, like i'd had a facial and has made it in to my top 5 sheet masks after one use.

Aqua Bab Modelling Mask - I love a modelling mask, I feel like a facialist mixing and applying them. This is a soothing and moisturising treatment and the pack contains 5 masks. You mix the essence with the crystal gel powder and apply, I love how cooling it feels when you apply and although it sets, it feels wet on your face due to all the essence it contains. After removal you're left with plump, calm, glowing skin.

Badecasil P-Original - If you're in need of some resurfacing this cream is packed with glycolic acid and their bioDtox complex which inhibits the formation of free radicals and boosts collagen. I have been using this on my neck and chest and have seen a real improvement in the texture of my skin and I am prone to little spots on my chest but I haven't had any since introducing this to my routine.
