Frequently Asked Questions

Gio has combination skin: slightly oily t-zone and slightly dry cheeks. But her whole face tends to get a lot more drier in the winter months, if she doesn’t up her hydration game

If you’re curious, you can read about Gio’s skincare routine here. But, if you have a different skin type or concern, don’t follow it to a T. Just because something works for Gio, doesn’t mean it’ll work for you. That’s why we review all products based on BOTH science and personal experience.

Every skincare brand has its gems and duds. But if Gio had to chose only one brand to use for the rest of my life, she’d go with Paula’s Choice. Their formulas are based on science, packaged properly, and fairly priced.

We also love:

  • Drunk Elephant for natural skincare that delivers results without irritating skin (most natural skincare products are full of irritants!).
  • Niod for always coming up with breakthrough innovations that revolutionise the way we do skincare.
  • CeraVe for the most nourishing skincare products for dry skin.
  • The Inkey List for affordable and elegant staples that are a pleasure to use.

Beautiful With Brains is an online resource for all things skincare. So think skincare products and gadgets, facial treatments, beauty supplements…

At this time, we’re not interested in hair and makeup products, fragrances, clothes, or vibrators that “make your skin glow from within” (yes, Gio was offered that once!).

Yes, but only from fellow bloggers, readers, and skincare experts (absolutely NO copywriters or sponsored posts in disguise). If you’re interested, you can learn more here.

'I get so many compliments on my skin!"

I get so many compliments on my skin since I’ve started this new routine. People are like, “your skin is so glowy, what’s your secret?” Now I look forward to doing my skincare routine every morning and night. It’s such a pampering treat. I feel more confident, too!
