I don’t know about you but I had never heard of Dr Dermal before we got an email from the PR asking us if we wanted to try anything from the range. After a quick bit of research, I learned that the brand ticked two of my preferred boxes for skincare: the cosmeceutical range was developed by a team of skincare professionals (rather than a makeup or fashion brand) and it’s a proudly South African company! So, I requested three products to try and here’s how it went:
Jules tests and reviews a bunch of drugstore and premium skincare, both new releases and products that are her new to her.

Often these are products that don’t make it into our monthly favourites but are still worth mentioning or otherwise might be worth steering clear of! Here we go: LUSH Roots Hair Treatment Another YouTuber-inspired purchase! This time the culprit is Allison Anderson AKA Amarixe who gave this stuff a rave review. Formulated for fine, thin hair (pick…
I find writing long reviews of individual products quite intimidating so they tend to languish in my drafts folder for months. I find it easier to give a short overview of products I’ve tried (like in Monthly Favourites) so I’m going to try putting together posts that offer a brief idea of my thoughts on a few things, then you can just leave a comment if you want more details.
