Review – Instantgram

I recently joined Instagram, the platform rich in vibrant images from all over the world has truly enhanced my digital photo experience.  I enjoy browsing  and  following feeds from creative minds based around cities that I have visited and loved or that I intend to explore one day.  Of course I have enjoyed uploading too, experiment with effects and photo opportunities.  It’s one thing to appreciate photos digitally but it is also nice and worth making the leap to a good old tactile medium.  Instantgram is a service that makes that transition smoothly.

Disclosure for the purpose of this review, Instantgram have given me the opportunity to order the magnet package free of charge however my content and opinions are my own.


Based in Istanbul, I found the site clear, they offer a regular print service or a fridge magnet package.

The pricing is clear and there are no hidden charges or hefty shipping fees, in fact they ship all over the world free of charge.

The delivery was surprisingly fast, I ordered from the UK and received an email to confirm my order as well as an indication of delivery time between 10 and 21 days.  The order  took 5 days to arrive.

The packaging reflects the care and attention in the branding of and I was happy with the quality of the print.  I will certainly use them again based on this experience.

iRejuvenate Forest Secrets Skincare

We are currently working with Dr Barbara Olioso founder of Forest Secrets a range of natural cosmetic products made in UK.

To thank me for looking after her campaign Barbara kindly sent a bottle of iRejuvenate “The Cream Of Wonders”.

The cream ticks all the boxes, it’s 100% natural, light but hydrates the skin very quickly and has a distinctive pleasant scent.

It came beautifully packed with clear product information and list of ingredients.  The name is intriguing “Cream Of Wonders” does make one question its claims to encourage skin elasticity and to regenerate collagen.  I like the sound of it, I am reaching the dreaded 40 mark next year…in a few months in fact, this can only be good for me.

It is still early days to tell if my skin elasticity has changed, what I like about it is the fact that it does not leave any sticky or oily feel to the skin after application.  I have used the cream on my legs and it leaves them hydrated for days, I have also been using it on the neck and could not resist trying it on the face too as I love the scent so much.  As you can see from the pictures, the cream is very light with a runny feel to it the skin absorbs it well and you only need a small amount to cover larger areas.



* I initially thought that the lid had to be removed as per the picture above but Barbara pointed out that to open, the lid twists and it lifts at the same time so the cream comes out of the central hole when the bottle is squeezed, very simple and neatly designed.

iRejunevate can be purchased directly from the forestsecretsskincare website or if you are in the London it is available from the Urban Retreat at Harrods.
