How important is Cybersecurity?

A total deviation from my usual makeup posts, today, I decided to write up on the importance Cybersecurity.

Is cyber security important? is your phone/ computer protected from billions of viruses? can your gadget survive another ' ransomeware' attack?

To those of who are wondering, what is meant by cybersecurity is ; according to techtarget.com "Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context,security includes both cybersecurity and physicalsecurity.

My parents bought our very first computer when I was about 5yrs old, back when Dial-up internet was a thing. As the oldest, my brother was in charge of the computer and he made sure that all our computers were virus protected and 10years later he still checks if my antivirus is updated.That's my story.In 2017, Do you actually bother about antivirus protection? I hope so. 

If you haven't already, I recommend that you give AVG a chance.

THE ORDINARY | NIACINAMIDE 10% + ZINC 1%

Today, I'll be reviewing The Ordinary Niancinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum. Well, it's not technically marketed as a serum but, I use it as a serum, after my essences, so I prefer to refer to it as a serum.

I placed an ASOS order couple of months ago and bought a few of The Ordinary products, ASOS is the only economical option to get Ordinary products shipped to Asia cause placing a direct order from the Deciem website incurs you a  $9.99 - 14.99 shipping cost.
I'm indeed late to the Ordinary party since it's been in the skincare market for an over a year and every blogger has reviewed them. I was a bit skeptical to try it out cause it was super cheap and honestly, I just didn't want to spend on a gimmicky product that's all hype and no results.

I was in search of a Niacinamide serum since I was running out of my beloved Shark Sauce, which retails for $29 plus shipping. Niacinamide aka Vitamin B3 is known for it's brightening and sebum controlling and said to be great for oily and acne prone skin. I don't suffer from acne but I do anyway have very oily skin due to a damaged moisture barrier, which I discovered recently ( details later :D). Due to financial restrictions and availability of a cheap alternative, I decided to try The Ordinary Niacianmide 10% + Zinc 1% and I'm glad I did. Here's why!






Product Description ; 
It's a High-strength vitamin and mineral blemish formula that contains Vitamin B3 to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion.Balances visible sebum activity.Apply serum to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams.

Ingredients ;




Personal Experience ;

The best solution for brightening and sebum control for my easily sun burnt oily skin. Though most of the reviewers complain that the niacinamide caused break outs, for me it has been nothing but a pleasant experience. The ordinary niacinamide has brightened my face, my breakouts heal faster and my t zone less oily since I started using the niancinamide 10%. This has been a staple in my PM routine since very first day. Will definitely repurchase when I run out.


Best suited for ;

oily, clog prone acne prone skin

Price ; £5.00

LADYKIN | AFFINICTIC SNAIL CREAM

Let me introduce you'll to THE most annoying product packaging today. Honestly, this is the worst tub of moisturizer that has ever happened to me.


LADYKIN AFFINICTIC SNAIL CREAM


Snail slime has been my greatest obsession since discovering Korean Beauty, It totally cured my acne, healed my skin and it has also healed my occasional burns. Snail secretions supposedly contain great anti aging and anti wrinkling properties, which with daily use could lead to smoother and glowing skin.

I cannot comment on anti aging as I'm still on my early 20's but, I do love slathering snail secretion on my face LOL.


Product Description?
The Ladykin Affinictic snail cream contains 80% snail filtrate extract which has been known to heal skin that has suffered loss of elasticity and has been damaged from external environmental factors.

Personal Experience ; 
Ladykin affinictic snail cream is a super moisturizing light weight lotion that's ideal for oily or clog prone skin. This left my face super soft and smooth like no other lotion.

Best suited for; Oily, Clog prone skin

Price; $ 16-22

Where to buy; eBay, Amazon

Rating;  5/5 Will not repurchase

SAMPLE REVIEW | NUBIAN HERITAGE COCONUT & PAPAYA BODY LOTION

I got a sample of the Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya body lotion the other day, a sachet which is good enough for 2-3 uses.This is the first time I tried any Nubian Heritage products and I'm sorry to say, I was not impressed.

First, the product claims to soften and soothe.I tried this on my heavily dried out knuckles and it didn't do much. One Positive factor about this body lotion that got me immediately hooked is that, it smells so heavenly. Coconut-y vanilla.

It smells so good. Hands down the best smelling body lotion I've ever used!! I kid you not! Is the smell alone worth to purchase a full size body lotion that retails for $12.99?

You decide.
