Dermalogica Virtual Consultation

Dermalogica Virtual Consultation


Danielle Levy, Dermalogica, skincare blogger, beauty blogger, skincare, Liverpool blogger, Wirral blogger,

We are all well aware with how much of a skincare addict I am but one thing I've never actually tried is an online skincare consultation. Usually when I do anything skincare, either checking out new launches or getting a skincare treatment, they usually involve feeling your skin to check for things like oiliness or dryness as well asking you some questions about your skin and your skincare goals so you know I was interested to see how a virtual skincare consultation would go.

Diary Of A Spoonie: The Start

Diary Of A Spoonie: The Start


Danielle levy, chronic illness, chronic pain, spoonie, nurse, lifestyle blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

For a little while now whenever I've shared something on my social media about my chronic illness or anxiety, it's always been really well received and it amazed me how much awareness needs to go into invisible illnesses so I thought that now life is starting to resume again (and actual medical appointments would be going ahead), I would start a little mini series on my blog (and maybe it will spill over onto my social media too) talking about the diary of a twenty something spoonie who's also a nurse.

Skincare That Works Without All The Expensive Packaging | The Inkey List


Danielle Levy, The INKEY List, beauty blogger, skincare, affordable skincare, skincare blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I've had encountered quite a few skincare brands now through doing my blog and one that has been at the top of my list to try for a little while now is The Inkey List, so I was super excited when they kindly reached out to me and offered to send across one of their newest launches, the Succinic Acid Blemish Treatment as well as some of their other iconic products. For the past couple of weeks I've been really putting these products through their paces and I thought it was about time for me to share with you all how I've gotten on with their products.

Be honest with yourself, how often do you practise self care or are you constantly burning yourself out?! I've got to admit that I definitely don't prioritise self care into my daily routine but it is something that this year I am changing because let's face it, if I'm not willing to prioritise my wellbeing and my limits then you can bet that no-one else is going to. I thought I'd share with you all some of the simple, easy ways I've been prioritising self care so that hopefully you can start trying it out yourself.

Transforming My Fine Hair |  Mayraki First Impressions

Transforming My Fine Hair | Mayraki First Impressions


Danielle Levy, Mayraki hair, fine hair, beauty blogger, Liverpool blogger, Wirral blogger,

Since my teens a big insecurity of mine is my hair and how it seems to be getting finer as I get older, I have tried pretty much everything possible with barely any success. So when the lovely people at Mayraki offered to send me some hair care to try and help me tackle my hair concerns, you know I jumped at the chance to try them out. I've only just started to test them out so I thought I could give you my first impressions now after trying each product a handful of times and then in a couple weeks, I'll come back with a more in-depth review with some comparison photos so you can see how my hair has physically improved from using the Mayraki products.

Switching To Bikini Waxing

Switching To Bikini Waxing


Danielle Levy, Bikini Waxing, Lilspa, beauty blogger, Liverpool blogger, Wirral blogger,

Before Christmas I decided to make the switch to bikini waxing cause I absolutely hate the itchiness from regrowth that comes with shaving and I've also found that as my back pain has gotten worse it's gotten harder and taken me longer than normal to shave so I decided to make the switch. I thought I would share my experience with you all and some tips and tricks I used.

For my waxing, I went to the wonderful Suzanne from LilSpa and before I'd been to her, I've been weighed out waxing for like a whole month beforehand because I'd truly seen some horror stories and heard about people saying how painful it is and although I am a chronic pain warrior and can manage at a standard level of pain everyday, something like acute pain from a wax makes me so nervous. When I booked my appointment with the lovely Suzanne, I told her that this was my first bikini wax and she was able to reassure me of what it would be like and the process. So I decided to go for the Brazilian bikini wax which is a little strip of hair left, although Suzanne does also offer basic bikini and the Hollywood depending on what look you prefer.

I thought I would share some tips I picked up about those that might worry about switching to waxing:

  • If you're worried about pain, take an ibuprofen 20-30 minutes before your appointment.
  • Grow out your hair, you can't have really short hair and expect to be able to get a clean wax. If you've got nothing there, you can't wax it. Suzanne advised me to have around 1.5cms length to get the best result.
  • Don't work out immediately after your wax, you have no hair there to absorb the sweat and be a buffer for the friction so you will get irritation.
  • Wear something comfortable to your appointment, my skin was a little bit tender initially after the appointment so I went for my comfy underwear and joggers because I knew that they wouldn't put to much pressure on the area. By the time I drove home, it was completely fine, no tenderness or irritation.
  • Don't soak in a bath with fragranced products the day of, that again will irritate your skin.
I have pretty fine hair but I found that compared to shaving, the hair has grown back a lot softer and finer so I imagine that with more frequent sessions it would help the hair growth in that area and it's made me start thinking about waxing my legs and underarms now. I exfoliated the area that the night before so the skin wasn't too irritated the morning of and then left the exfoliation for a week or two afterwards so that I didn't irritate the skin. After having it done, I honestly think it actually hurts more having my eyebrows waxed! Now I don't know average prices for bikini waxes by me but Suzanne offers the Brazilian service for only £2o which I thought seemed like a great price.

Are you a fan of bikini waxing?

Speak to you next time!
