Dermalogica – Skin Care – Review

Something I have been lacking throughout my life is a good skin regimen. I always made sure to clean my face and never sleep with make-up on. Yet I never took too much care of my skin, I always forgot to put the moisturizer on, unless my skin felt dry or scrub my face for at least once a week. Also I never had treated myself to a good facial until recently. After the new year I decided to splurge a bit on myself and went for a nice facial at a local beautician, who’s shop is called Belle Image. The facial was amazing, my skin was shouting with joy as it became very soft and got rid of the dirt which must have been hidden inside my skin.


Like most beauticians if they are linked to a particular product, they will do anything to sell it to you. If  your like me you cannot afford to buy expensive products, be strong and refuse. Yet if you want to spoil yourself with some good products, try dermalogica.  When I bought these products my heart sank, as they are ridiculously expensive from my point of view (yes I am aggressively honest) However I can say that from the few months I’ve been using their products, they are definitely worth it.  My skin has improved a lot I don’t have as much blackheads as I used to,  and it’s softer and healthier.

So far I’ve bought the Scrub, moisturizer, toner, eye cream, and Make up remover. Keep on reading for a further opinion on each product:


Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover:  This is a pretty decent make-up remover, It is not as expensive as the other products but still pricier than other make-up removers. I got this for free with the moisturizer, I’ve tried it a couple of times, it is pretty good however if I had to buy it again, I don’t think I would repurchase. Not because it’s a bad make-up remover but because I can buy a cheaper make-up remover which does the same job just right.



Age Smart Multivitamin Thermofoliant Scrub: Now this is one hell of a scrub, I simply love it. Usally with scrubs they either fall off my face or are not effective enough. The moisture is thick and once you apply it doesn’t fall off and it gives you the liberty to scrub the face very well. Then you get this warm feeling, which let’s you know that it is doing something to our skin. My face feel super soft right after and I could see that it took most of the dirt of my face. It is pretty pricey but it’s worth every penny.


Multi Active Toner: I quite like this toner, it is not alcohol based and you can also spray it on your make-up apparently to keep it fresh. I’ve never applies it on my make-up but I always apply it after I cleanse my face. The only annoying part of this toner is the packaging, the nozzle is pretty annoying as you cannot spray multiple times you need to wait for the air to pump it back up.  Other than that it’s pretty good.



Active Moist Moisturizer: I simply love this moisturizer not only it keeps my face hydrated it doesn’t leave my face oily one bit. Another good thing about it is that you don’t bee a ton of product to cover the whole face, it spreads heavenly. I always end up with more product out than I need as I am used to other products. It is a bit pricey yet as the scrub its worth every penny.


Intensive Eye Repair : I am lazy hen it comes to eye cream which is why without any make up, I have the worst black eyes. Yet with this eye cream, miracles happened I don’t have black eyes as I used to. I don’t look like a panda without make-up anymore :P. 

Those are all of the product which I purchased from Dermalogica, if I do purchase more products I will let you know what my opinion is. I do have to say that they are pretty good they have improved my skin even if I am quite reckless.

If you have tried or use Dermalogica I would love your opinion, feel free to comment down below

lot’s of love





Anatomicals – Exclusive Pre-Launch in Malta

Listen up men and women, Anatomicals are available in Malta :).If you aren’t familiar with this brand, you are about to be. I honestly wasn’t familiar with them until last month but since I saw these products, I couldn’t wait to try them out. Anatomicals consist of a range of skin care products from soaps to facial creams for men and women. What struck me the most is their colorful packaging, and wicked sense of humor. Each product has a funny name and a tag-line which will definitely put a smile on your face.


You can’t help but notice, that these products sell for a very cheap price. I haven’t seen any skin care products this cheap anywhere.They currently sell at Asos, Tesco and various drugstores in the UK and are also massive hit in Germany. But the best thing is, that now they are available to everyone in Malta and even internationally thanks to a new website called Anatomicals which you can check out here. This website is run by a friend of mine which also has another successful website with products for Men, called Men in Malta. So do check them out.


I always make sure to research about every products brands, and from what I read people love these products because they are good and inexpensive. The words “Cheap” and “Good”, ring happy bells to us beauty addicts. The awesome thing is I get to try these products first hand :), and once I have truly tested them out, I will give you a more detailed review. All I can say for now is they smell very nice, and I can’t wait to pamper myself with these products. I think they are also a great Idea to give as a birthday present, or maybe stock up for Christmas gifts.


I had a chat with the founder of Anatomicals website in Malta and got to know more about this cool brand. Check them out:

How where you introduced to the brand?

Well it was by chance really I came across their products while I was doing some research online for my other store Men in Malta. Their style of branding caught my eye immediately.  And I could not resist, the sometimes ‘rude’ wording on the backside of the product. I first bought some of their products as testers and I was impressed even more when they arrived. You might as well say it was love at first sight. Despite the fact that they were inexpensive they still delivered to my standards. From there onwards I decided to share these great products with all the cool people in Malta.

What drove you, to start selling them in Malta?

Apart from what I mentioned before, the main reason was that there are so many boring and unappealing products out there, that these are a breath of fresh Air in such a saturated market.  What makes these products unique from the other products in the market is that they are targeted to those that have a cool and wild attitude. So be part of our WILD team one and join our facebook page 🙂


What product do you use a lot?

As a good honorable man that I am, I generally keep a very moderate grooming lifestyle. This consists of a face wash routine, a good scrubbing every 3-4 days and some very basic use of oil control moisturizer. Since these last 9 months I can say that i have constantly been using the memorable daily face wash which is a unisex kind. I made vast use of the man range funnily named manatomicals. In fact I have become quite addicted to their body wash products for men. So good and manly. Another main product was the headache balm which is surely my best friend on bad days. It reduces my ‘throbbing headaches’ to bits which is also great also for hangovers. I am also addicted to the peachy shampoo and most of the hand washes available.

What is the product that you would suggest women to buy?

Well limiting this to one is impossible.. as yet I have not received a negative remark from any woman as they represent a perfect price vs more than average quality for such product. I could easily recommend all the great lip balms and the hottle tottie range.

What is the product you would suggest men to buy?

If you’re a guy like me than I would highly recommend all of the manatomicals range.

So what are you waiting for, go and check these product out on www.anatomicals.com.mt. If you are spending over €20 you get free delivery in Malta and Gozo, so what are you waiting for? 😛

Have you tried any of their products yet ? If so would love to read your comments down below 🙂




M.A.C Pro Longwear Concealer

Hey guys,

Sorry been MIA lately but i has on of the busiest weekends. It has also been a bit crazy here in Malta with the Election going on but I am back to normal now. So I thought I should review another great product from Mac.


I got the Pro Longwear Concealer because I have heard great reviews about the product so I thought I should check what is all the buzz about. I got in NC42 for some crazy reason because it is a bit darker than my skin however it works well if I blend it out with some other lighter colored concealer or foundation. Like any of my other reviews, I will mention the Pro’s and Con’s of the product, so let’s get started :



  1. It is lightweight and Pigmented 
  2. It really lasts for a long time
  3. If you choose the right colour for your skin it will blend perfectly because I can feel it with the liquid it self.
  4. Price is Ok for £14.50 as It would probably last for a long time

Cons :

  1. The pump dispenses too much product – you can never press it halfway its either a full pump or nothing – I sometimes mix the excess product with my moisturizer for a quick tinted moisturizer


Overall I am impressed with the staying power of the concealer. I will definitely repurchase it again and hopefully next time with the right skin tone. If you have a M.A.C store next to you, you should definitely purchase it, make sure you find the right skin tone.

That is all for now, keep posted for more




M.A.C Face and Body Foundation – Review

Hey guys,


So I thought I should review the Face and Body Foundation by MAC. I read a lot of good reviews about the foundation and I thought I would definitely like it so I bought the 120ml bottle which is quite bigger than normal foundations and chose C2 shade. When I tried it for the first time, I liked a lot the packaging because you can get out as much product as you want and there is no problem of any spillage happening.  The tube is plastic so it also makes it safer for you to travel with it as their wont be a problem of breakage.



Then I applied it to my face and realized that it really gives a really thin coverage which I wasn’t really satisfied with. I am not against a foundation that gives a thin coverage as long as it hides some the redness that I have on the face and some other small imperfections. But it didn’t. I did 2 layers on my face and there were still some redness that were covered well and still showing. At least the C2 shade matched perfectly my skin color  I am not saying it is a bad foundation but it definitely is not the best foundation I ever tried. This would be perfect for anyone that has a perfect skin and doesn’t need a lot of coverage but It isn’t definitely not for me. I love MAC overall but this is definitely not the formula for me, I personally prefer thicker formulas.


When it comes to pricing I thought that it is an expensive foundation for such a thin formula, but if you calculate the amount a normal foundation has which is usually a 30ml and the amount the mac comes in which is 50ml the least. You you have more quantity than any drug store foundation that costs usually costs about £16 for 30ml. The MAC of 50ml costs £20.50 and the 120ml is £26.50 which is pretty worth it.

I believe overall it is a good foundation but not for me unfortunately. I will however use it and mix it with some other favorite foundations I have.

That is all for now, Keep posted for more
