Erborian CC Dull Correct Review and Photos - Erborian CC Cream Which Shade is right for you?

Erborian CC Dull Correct 
*Gifted/Press Trip/Affiliate Links
Erborian is a Korean led skincare brand that uses premium ingredients combined with Korean technology and habits to bring to you the latest complexion-enhancing products that bridge the gap between skincare and makeup.

Erborian's CC Cremes are some of the brands most iconic and best-selling products that help correct, hydrate, enhance, protect and brighten. And this year Erborian welcomes the newest CC member the CC Dull Correct, a violet toned creme targeted for dull skin tones. So sit back, relax and let me tell you everything you need to know about the Eborian CC Family...
- Original Erborian CC Créme in Clair, Doré and Caramel 15ml £17
- Original Erborian CC Créme Clair, Doré and Caramel 45ml £38
- Erborian CC Eye in Clair and Doré 10ml £34
- Erborian CC Red Correct 15ml £17
- Erborian CC Red Correct 45ml £38
- NEW Erborian CC Dull Correct 15ml £17
- NEW Erborian CC Dull Correct 45ml £38

The Erborian CC Créme Family is available from:
- Erborian UK
- Space NK*
- Feel Unique*
- Next*
Each of the CC Correct creams comes in a coloured tube to correspond with what skin concerns the cream will correct. 
  • CC Créme - This comes in 3 shades, has a Broad Spectrum SPF 25 and is a wonderful one if you don't have any skin concerns as such but you just want something to enhance and perfect the skins tone. Choose from two shades, Clair and Doré.
  • CC Red Correct - Red Correct is as the name suggests for redness. This cream magically erases redness and modifies to your skin tone to give you a more radiant complexion with the added bonus of an SPF 25.
  • CC Dull Correct - The newest member of the family is the one for anyone who has tied, dull or lac-lustre skin and is in need of an instant boost of radiance. The CC Dull Correct evens out the skin while, correcting, protecting, moisturising and brightening.
And if you're still unsure on what's right for you then there is a really handy guide on the Eborian website here* to help you navigate your perfect CC combination! 
There are several ways you can apply these, both of which I use. Firstly if you're short for time you can apply these directly with your fingers and watch the cream transform your skin in front of your eyes! Then if you do have those extra few minutes you can apply the creme with a brush, you can also combine the original CC Créme with either the CC Dull Correct (Purple) or the CC Red Correct (Green). Just apply your desired CC Correct first then apply the CC Creme on top.

All of the Eborian CC Crémes also have skin-loving elements including Centella Asiatica which is a wonderful anti-ageing ingredient known to help with hydrating and soothing the skin, as well as aiding in cell turnover and collagen production.
All three of the CC Creams have a 6-month shelf life.

Wear test wise I've found both the CC Dull Correct and CC Créme to last all day on my skin and any skin concerns to stay covered up throughout my day.

The Erborian CC Dull Correct and CC Créme in Clair have defiantly become a staple within my everyday makeup routine as I just love how efficient, quick and versatile they all are. If you ever suffer from redness, dullness or an uneven skin tone than these are truly like magic wands that erase away any imperfections, brighten, moisturise and enhance. It's just like your skin but better!

So if you are after a multi-tasking face product full of skin-friendly ingredients and you're not a fan of heavy, cakey foundations, however, you still like a bit of coverage then the Erborian CC Family could be your knight in shining armour, that perfect product you've been looking for all along!

I award the Erborian CC Dull Correct a 4.9 out of 5.

The Ordinary L-Ascorbic Acid Powder Review and Photos

The Ordinary Vitamin C Powder Review
*Affiliate Links
I think it's safe to say that The Ordinary have become pioneers within the skincare industry paving the way we look and what we use within our skincare routines. At first glance The Ordinary looks like an over the chemist brand where you have no idea what the ingredients mean let alone what it's supposed to do for your skin!? However, I think over the past couple of years we have become accustomed and even more knowledgable on ingredients, terminology and the benefits of these now very accessible and affordable skincare ingredients.

Last year I did a review on my first wave of products from The Ordinary which you can read here. This year I've been testing out the popular Vitamin C Powder otherwise know as L-Ascorbic Acid Powder. Now I've already touched on why Vitamin C is so beneficial for the skin in several videos over on my YouTube Channel here and so I won't go into too much detail but today I wanted to share with you everything you need to know about the Vitamin C Powder along with my thoughts...
This potent Vitamin C Powder can aid in brightening, reducing the signs of ageing and even the skins tone.

The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder retails for an affordable £4.90 for 20g of product.

The jar in which the powder comes in is a UV Protective glass jar so that it can preserve and prevent the powder from going off. This also has a mini spoon included in order for you to measure out the best amount for you personally.
Spoon a tiny amount of the powder (I would say half to a quarter spoonful depending on if you've used Vitamin C before) onto the palm of your hand and mix in with your daytime or night time moisturiser or another treatment as suggested (excluding EUK 134 or Niacinimide). I would recommend using this either in the daytime or evening mixed in with a face lotion as it has a lighter texture that works better than thicker creams. On a side note, you may experience a slight tingle when using this powder so if you are new to Vitamin C I would start with a very small amount and build it up slowly.
6 Months once opened.

There are many forms of Vitamin C now available within the skincare market but this has to be one of my favourite ways to apply it purely for the fact that it's so customisable with just about any other treatment and can be incorporated into your daily skincare routine with ease. This 100% L'Ascorbic Acid is impressive considering the price point and I've definitely noticed my skin has looked brighter and more even since using this product. Overall I can't get enough of this powder because of the price, accessibility and it's powerful anti-ageing properties, so much so that this has and will be a staple within my skincare cupboard and routine.

I award the Ordinary L-Ascorbic Acid Powder a 4.9 out of 5

Foreo Luna Mini 3 Review, Demo and Photos

Luna Mini 3 by Foreo
Gifted and *Affiliate Links.
Foreo are a Swedish born beauty tech brand specialising in high-end beauty devices. Founded in 2013 Foreo is short for 'FOR EVERYONE' and can be found worldwide in over 10,000 stores. Now available within the Foreo family is the Luna Mini 3 which I have been putting it to the test over the past month and today I wanted to share with you my final thoughts on the Foreo Luna Mini 3 as well as some tips, benefits and a live demo that you can watch in my initial First Impression I did below...
The Luna Mini 3 comes in 5 gorgeous colours and retails for £139. It also has a  2-Year Warranty and a 10 Year Quality Guarantee.

The device is available directly from Foreo here and Cult Beauty here*.
The Luna Mini 3 comes boxed and includes a charging device, a sample sachet of the Foreo Serum, basic instructions and as I mentioned above a 2-Year Warranty and a 10 Year Quality Guarantee. The device itself is lightweight, compact, 100% waterproof and quick drying plus it can be used up to 400 times on a single full charge. Finally one extra feature I love about the Luna Mini 3 is the fact you don't need replace or worry about buying additional brush heads which is always a bonus!
The Luna Mini 3 by Foreo is a wonderfully effective and gentle facial cleansing brush designed to be used post workout. It's a great addition to your daily skincare routine especially after a workout because it can help remove sweat, oil and dirt to reveal smooth, glowy and softer skin.
The Luna Mini 3 can be connected to the Foreo App where you can adjust your preferred and personalised settings. There is 12 adjustable T-Sonic intensities as well as the new Glow Boost Mode which allows you to do a quick 30 second cleanse on the go if your short for time.

  1. First things first, whether you've used a Foreo device before or you're compleatly new to this then I would recommend downloading the app so you can connect your new Luna Mini 3. The app is easy to use and provides a wealth of information including a help line if your stuck and an easy step by step guide on how to use.
  2. Once your connected your ready to go and if you're new to the Foreo family and you're not familiar with this kind of cleansing device then I would also first suggest navigating to the HOW TO USE page. 
  3. Once your happy with how it all works then you can either press START to cleanse your face with the original mode or you can press GLOW BOOST to do a quick cleanse.
  4. If you choose the standard START mode it will first take you to the another screen where it shares with you the TIME IN SECONDS that you are wanting to cleanse for as well as the INTENSITY. You can change either one of these to suit your needs on the home page in SETTINGS.
  5. If you opt for the GLOW BOOST mode you can also change your TIME IN SECONDS and INTENSITY in SETTINGS too.
  6. If you're opting for the standard cleansing mode there is also a MIRROR MODE option in the top right hand corner so you can see yourself while cleansing if you don't happen to have a mirror to hand.
  7. Finally once you've selected your cleansing mode on the app there is a step by step guide while your cleansing on where to use the Luna Mini 3 on each part of the face.
If you would like to see a more in-depth and live demo on how to use this then I would recommend watching my original video up above or here.
Whilst testing the Luna Mini 3 Foreo very kindly sent me the Foreo Micro-Foam Cleanser (Gifted) and the Foreo Serum (Gifted) to use in conjunction with the device. Here's an example of how I slotted the products and device into my morning skincare routine, but of course everyone has a different type of routine so please use this as a loose guide whether you use 3 or 10 products within your routine.
  1. Return from the gym, shower and then use the Foreo Luna Mini 3 with the Foreo Micro-Foam Cleanser onto damp skin. (I choose the cleansing mode depending on how much time I had in the morning but the Glow Boost mode I tend to use on days when my skins in need of a more deeper cleanse).
  2. 2nd Cleanse
  3. Glycolic Acid
  4. Tone
  5. Essence
  6. Foreo Serum
  7. Eye Cream
  8. Moisturiser
  9. SPF
Foroeo Gentle Micro-Foam Cleanser £39.90 100ml
Foreo Serum £48 30ml
I've been using this for over a month now and I have to say I'm impressed by not only how efficient this is but how it's made my skin feel and look. I love how compact and lightweight this is plus it's better for the environment as you don't need to keep replacing the brush heads. The battery life is also  impressive as I still have 3 out of the 4 bars of battery left. 

Cleansing wise my skin looked more radiant after only a few days and overall it feels cleaner and softer. I did stop using this for a few days in-between the month just to see if my skin would feel any different and it did! My skin felt rougher texture wise and not as smooth, so now I know for sure that I couldn't live without this device within my everyday skincare routine. 

One thing I will say is although this is designed for a post workout cleanse I don't think you necessarily have to use it just for after the gym, you can slot this into your regular morning routine or even use this within your evening routine in conjunction with your second cleanse. 

Finally the thing I love most about the Luna Mini 3 is the fact it gently cleanses my face without pulling or tugging and it's not as harsh on the skin compared to other cleansing brushes. The app is tremendously handy too which makes this altogether a fantastic cleansing device to help take your skincare routine to the next level! 

I award the Foreo Luna Mini 3 a 4.9 out 5

Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil Review and Photos

Clarins Blue Orchid Oil
*Affiliate Links
Clarins has always been one of those classic french brands I've known about for years but that I've only ever dipped my toe into a handful of times. The cult Beauty Flash Balm* was always a staple in my makeup bag when I was younger and now I thought it was about time I discovered more from for me, this sometimes over-looked chic, french brand...
The Blue Orchid Oil has been at the top of my skincare wishlist for a good few years now until I finally took the plunge and treated myself to this luxurious Face Treatment Oil. I've been using this for over six months now so I thought it was about time I shared with you my thoughts on this...

Clarins have three facial oils that make up the collection that aim to target different skin types and concerns including,
  1. Clarins Blue Orchid Treatment Oil for Dehydrated Skin.
  2. Clarins Lotus Treatment Oil for Oily/Combination Skin.
  3. Clarins Santal Treatment Oil for Dry Skin.
All of the oils are made with 100% pure plant extracts and can help hydrate, rebalance and nourish the skin. The Blue Orchid Oil is specifically designed to target dehydrated skin and help hydrate, tone and revitalise the skin. Key ingredients include the Blue Orchid to revitalise and Hazelnut to help nourish and soften the skin. 
  • Clarins Blue Orchid Treatment Oil 30ml £34
  • Clarins Lotus Treatment Oil 30ml £34
  • Clarins Santal Treatment Oil 30ml £34
All of the oils come boxed with an additional informative leaflet located inside of the box. The oil itself comes in a glass pipette bottle which makes it easy to drop out how much you'll need each time.
You can apply this both in the mornings and evenings, personally, I prefer using this at night as the last step of my skincare routine. Now you guys know I love doing my 10 Step Korean Skincare Routine so I apply 2-3 drops to the face and neck after my night-time moisturiser. Another way Clarins suggest applying the oil is to toned skin that is still damp, so whichever way you prefer just remember to pat the oil into the skin gently.
Clarins, John Lewis*, Feel Unique* and Debenhams*.

This is one of the most beautiful and luxurious oils I've ever used, the smell and feel of this oil is stunning. For me, this left my skin feeling glowy, hydrated and totally pampered and every time I use this I totally see a difference in the way my skin looks and feels afterwards. Now I'm aware this is a little on the pricier side however this lasts for ages as you don't need much and I actually think this is a reasonable price point based on the pure plant extracts and how well this performs. So if you're looking to uplevel your skincare routine and your skin is craving moisture, radiance and nourishment then this could be the oil for you.

I award the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil a 4.9 out of 5
