David Beckham House 99 Review

House 99 David Beckham Review - The LDN Diaries

David Beckham has teamed up with L’Oreal to create his very own grooming line House 99. The House 99 brand was two years in the making and is named after ‘the year David became a man’. The range has 20 products, broken down into hair, beard and face.

I challenged myself to test out three of the House 99 products for ten days to see how good they were. I picked the thickening daily shampoo, the seriously groomed and brand defence face moisturiser. Read More »

Image Skincare Ormedic Balancing Eye Lift Gel

Image Skincare Ormedic Balancing Eye Lift Gel Review - Beauty Blogger - The LDN Diaries

I’m pretty fussy when it comes to skincare products, I know my skin type pretty well now and what works for me (check out my guide to products for dehydrated skin here). So when I find a brand that works for me, I’m hooked. As soon as I had a facial with Image Skincare, I loved the products straight away and the results they gave. My favourite products from the brand include the Vital C Hydrating Facial Cleanser, Ormedic Lip Balm and the Ageless Hyaluronic Filler, which I’m actually just about to run out of and when I run out of a skincare product, I know it’s good. I’m lucky to finish a product most of the time, just as I do get to try a lot of products, so when it’s finished it says a lot for me. Read More »

Guerlain’s Loveable New Spring Collection

Guerlain Spring 2018 Review

I’m always excited to see the Guerlain seasonal collections. The Guerlain fall collection was one of my favourites last year and for Spring, well who wouldn’t swoon over a love heart-shaped lipstick?

I thought it was only fair to introduce you to the new collection now as the lipstick has such a perfect love theme and the collection itself is in beautiful pink casing, with the illuminator palette also being decorated in hearts, so I think it could be the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.

Starskin 7 Second Overnight Mask

Starskin Overnight Pads Review - Beauty Blogger The LDN Diaries

At night is the time when I do the most with my skincare, I’ll spend that extra time with peels and oils and have a true pamper on some evenings. However it comes a time when I am just so tired and want to quickly pop into bed. I never want to miss out on my skincare benefits, so I’ll usually just cover my face in a mask and when I saw Starskin had released a 7-second overnight mask, I couldn’t wait to test it out.

Starskin are most known for their Korean style sheet masks, which are if not my favourite sheet mask. They stick so well to your face and the serums leaves it feeling so moisturised afterwards that I just love putting one on. They have lots of different sheet masks now, with some targeted for just eyes and lips and they even brought out a Starskin make-up applicator which I loved. So it’s not surprising to see them expanding the range with the overnight mask pads. The mask is said to be a 7-in-1; massage, exfoliator, toner, oil serum, night cream, sleeping mask and mood relaxer.
