About Me


Let me introduce myself, I'm Niksi and this is my blog concerning everything beauty related; this surrounds hair, nails, cosmetics, skin care etc. 
I have been in the hair and beauty industry for over 14 years. In this time I have picked up lots of knowledge about the business and used a whole heap of different products.
 
The most important factor to anyone in the industry, novice or expert is if the products you use actually work; if they don't it doesn't really matter how good or knowledgeable you are, the look you're trying to achieve will not turn out the way that you desired it to.  So, with this I am embarking on a journey to find product's that do what you need them to do. 
All the opinions on the product's I review are my own and 100% honest. I pay for the products myself, I do this so I know if the item is worth the money. I see this as a fair way to review as I too am a consumer, none of the products in this blog are sponsered or free.

For Reference Purposes:
  • I have oily/ combination skin which is acne prone.
  • My hair is naturally very curly (ringlets), which is colour treated. I have fine/ medium thickness in hair type, no dandruff problems or scalp irritations; and my hair is very dry on the ends.
  • My skin tone is very light/ light with pink undertones and red areas around my nose.
How I Test Products:
  • Shampoo/ Conditioner are used for a two week period, normally this equals around 6-7 washes in that time period.
  • Hair styling products are used around 4-5 times before making any judgements, as we all have bad hair days now and again when nothing will help.
  • Skincare products is the longest I test as it takes a while to see the results, I usually use these without others brands for at least a month or more.
  • Cosmetics I test with and without primers to see the results. I tend to use lip products at least 7 times, eye products for at least a week, the same with face products, using only those brands.
