What I say

It is a nice shaving gel, personally I found the smell too intense and would not repurchase it. Beside that, I cannot get it here in the UK, which is why I looked for an alternative and tried the above shaving gel this time.

OUT: Lavera Faces Mint – Organic Pore Refining Moisturising Fluid (£10.90)

#crueltyfree #vegan #organic

What Lavera says

The clever combination of Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Mint in the Pore Refining Moisturising Fluid ensures oily complexions feel hydrated without the heavy, greasy feeling. Organic Burdock extract encourages cell regeneration for a replenished effect, whilst gently tackling scars and blemishes. Mineral Zinc Lactate gives skin a matte appearance resulting in a fresh, even complexion.

What I say

I really liked this moisturiser. It has a light mint scent to it and absorbs very quickly and works well under makeup. This was recommended to me when I was looking for a moisturiser that works on blemish prone skin and still moistens the skin. Why don’t I buy it again? Mainly because it is not so easy to get (okay, you can order it online, but sometimes I just like to pick up things when I am browsing a store…) and when I found the amie skincare in my local Waitrose I decided to try something new and give it a go instead. I am definitely happy to use it again in the future though.

After Inked – Tattoo Balm

After Inked

After Inked is a daily skin moisturiser for new and existing tattoos. It can also be used on cosmetic tattoos on the eyes, lips, areola etc as well as post-laser tattoo removal.

What I like about it is the good moisturisation without making the new tattoo become sticky, which I personally find very annoying. It doesn’t really have a particular smell to it. It retails for £14.99, so it is not the cheapest product to use, but I just really like the way it works and the ingredients list, so I am willing to pay a bit more.


  • Aqua (Water):  Purified water used as a “spreading agent” that helps to distribute the other ingredients evenly over the skin.
