Look I get it, I’m a consumer too. And let’s be honest, the internet makes it rough. Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping online, but sometimes that ‘nude’ sweater you got on final sale turns out to be hot pink, and so not what you were looking for. If you’re in the market to discover some cool new brands or just want to know how that sweater actually looks and feels in real life, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some product reviews that give you insight into quality, functionality and beauty from a shopaholic’s perspective.

my skin feels like butter with this 10 ingredient wash – JUNOCO skincare review

Poreless, smooth, glowing skin – we all want it. But with life comes an inevitable dullness courtesy of time, that lingers with us and reminds us of lost youth.  A flooded beauty market promises the return of our youthful glow, but with so many products it can be a nightmare to navigate, and we’re often left disappointed with unkept promises. When JUNOCO reached out to offer a regiment of their skincare – I was skeptical. But, agreed to give them a try over a couple of weeks to see if their products could live up to their claims.  A couple of weeks later, I’m happy to share this JUNOCO skincare review, with some actually surprising results.  I discovered a hack that leaves my skin with the smoothest, buttery (almost velvety) texture. And it’s the reason I’ll be using JUNOCO again! But first, here are some of the highlights I’ll cover in this review: MINIMAL, NATURAL INGREDIENTS: I’m no scientist, but packing in a slew of active ingredients without thorough testing doesn’t seem wise. JUNOCO carefully selects just …

finally, a flattering modern aesthetic luxury swimwear brand

In search of high end swimwear without awkward fit and low grade materials? It’s become increasingly difficult to navigate swimwear, especially when shopping online. (The photos just look so far from the actual fit). The sagging bottoms, loose threads, unflattering fit – it’s almost impossible to find swimwear to suit elevated taste. Even when you shop luxury.
