Can Astrology help you get clear skin? Best selling author Rachael Pontillo interviews astrologer Anne Nordhaus-Bike

During the month of March I will not be trying any new skin care and will focus on treating my indented acne scars. I will write a blog post about how I get on with the treatment later in the month. If you want to read about my first time trying the treatment Click here

Instead of reviewing skin care products this month I will introduce you to a few fascinating Youtubers. I will start with Rachael Pontillo.

Rachael Pontillo's YouTube channel is unlike any other channel I have come across. She  interviews amazing people who talk about how we can have healthy, beautiful skin BUT they approach the topic from a very unique perspective. The interviews are absolutely fascinating. There is nothing like it!

For example, in the video below you will see an interview with astrologer and artist Anne Nordhaus-Bike. Who would have thought that Astrology can help us get clear, beautiful skin?

I have copied Rachael's self introduction from her YouTube channel below:

"I'm Rachael Pontillo, bestselling author of the book Love Your Skin, Love Yourself and co-author of The Sauce Code. I'm also a spiritually-focused health and image coach, natural skincare formulator and educator, and creator of the popular blog, and the fabulous (If I do say so myself!) online course, Create Your Skincare at My videos teach you how to look amazing on the outside and feel amazing on the inside. I try to encourage you to take your skincare, health, and happiness into your own hands and trust in your own divine gifts. We'll talk skincare, health, self-care, spirituality, and more. I hope you enjoy!"

Many thanks to Rachael Pontillo for making these great videos and introducing such amazing people to us. And thanks to astrologer Anne Nordhaus-Bike for sharing her knowledge with us.

Now, you might want to apply a skin mask on, sit back and enjoy the interview.

Galactomyces & Bifidalacto Complex products+ Several UPDATES

Did I like using Manyo Factory Galactomyces niacin?

No. I will not repurchase Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin again.

UPDATE:31/08/17 It has been 7 months since I wrote this post and in that time I've learnt that Niacin is a very well researched skin loving ingredient. I will be purchasing products containing Niacin :-) and hoping it will "shrink" my pores. 

UPDATE:28/11/2017 As mentioned in my previous update, I wanted to try a Niacin product and I chose Dr.Troub Skin Returning Niaten serum with 10% Niacinamide. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and so far so good. I think my pores look more refined, but it could be my wishful thinking that is tricking my eyes. Sadly, this product is only 30ml and at almost £20, I would not be repurchasing it. I hear that The Ordinary have a nice Niacinamide serum and cheaper.

Observations about applying the product and how it felt on the skin

Applying it (Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin) felt like applying water. No scent, no colour,…

Best calming cream for acne prone skin- Sulwhasoo Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules review

I first heard about the Sulwhasoo range from one of my favourite Youtubers- Lili. Her blog title is I am a beauty junky and that is also the name of her YouTube channel. I don't remember her reviewing the Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules but when I researched several Sulwhasoo products she talked about, I found a couple of reviews on Herblinic and was intrigued enough to order samples from Ebay.  I bought 30 samples and they lasted me 15 days ( using them day and night).

From the very first application, my skin was nourished like never before. I could tell that this was one amazing product.

This honey like cream/serum is apparently packed with medicinal herbs which are said to  help nourish and  repair damaged skin. It smells herby and to me that scent is calming. It looks like honey but it spreads easily and little goes a long way. The application can be a bit sticky, but I don't mind that. One sample is enough for my face and neck.

After I used the first 30 samples, my skin…

Review: Cosrx BHA Blackhead power liquid and AHA whitehead power liquid

Update 6th July 2017: The post you will read below was written in January 2017. At the time my experience with Cosrx BHA and AHA was not positive. But months later, I went back to trying these products with great results. To read my updates click on this link and that will take you to my post "Using the previously disliked Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid again? " which I published in May 2017.

For years I've been using Skin Doctors Gamma hydroxy cream and I've been pretty happy with it. It is a skin resurfacing cream containing both AHAs (glycolic and lactic acid) and BHA (salicylic acid). It keeps my oily acne prone skin  free form congestion and pimples. There are only two things I don't like about this cream- the price and how "oily" it feels on the skin. 

I read several positive reviews of Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid and AHA7 Whitehead Power Liquid and wanted to try them. I thought that if I could transition to using them instead of the Skin Do…
