If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! I have quite a bit of a hair care product to work through at the moment so I’m trying to get through it all (it’s a hard life…) but one duo I keep returning to, especially on my Sunday […]

Bourjois La Laque Nail Enamels

Bourjois La Laque Nail Enamels

16 April 2015

With the Spring 2015 Bourjois launches came a new nail varnish – as a slight sidenote, isn’t it interesting how many polish designs Bourjois varnishes have had? We’re quite used to the pots with the long, tapered handles, but of course we have the other variants, such as the shorter, curvier bottles and the ones […]

An Introduction to Fresh Beauty

An Introduction to Fresh Beauty

16 April 2015

Fresh have been around since the early 90’s, so I’m sure there are plenty of you who are familiar with the brand, but there are also likely to be quite a few of you who aren’t; if you’re like me and you’d heard of Fresh but never had the chance to find out more, hopefully […]

Decleor Aroma Nutrition 1000 Grain Body Exfoliator and Aromessence Encens Nourishing Rich Body Oil

Decleor Aroma Nutrition 1000 Grain Body Exfoliator and Aromessence Encens Nourishing Rich Body Oil

15 April 2015

I don’t tend to feature a lot of body products on the blog as, to be honest, I don’t find them that interesting; a product has to really appeal to me or offer something quite different to get me excited, which sadly rarely happens with body products.  Having said that, what I do love is […]

Mask Monday: Face D 3-Luronics Face and Eye Sheet Masks

Mask Monday: Face D 3-Luronics Face and Eye Sheet Masks

13 April 2015

I’m cheating a bit here by including two products in my usual single product Mask Monday feature, but they’re both kind of the same thing, from the same line, designed to achieve the same outcome, so I thought they should be reviewed together.  The two products I’m talking about are both from the Face D […]

Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Simply Nude

Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Simply Nude

13 April 2015

I mentioned the Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Simply Nude in my favourites post for March, so I thought I’d better follow-up with a more comprehensive review so I can share with you why I love it.  Firstly, the Colour Elixir Lipstick formula is gorgeous – creamy and lubrication on the lips, yet no […]

3 x Sk:n Skincare Sets Competition – The Results!

10 April 2015

Whilst writing up the last competition post for the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean here, I realised I hadn’t actually drawn the winners for the Sk:n skincare sets, so I thought I’d better rectify that a bit sharpish! Thanks to all who entered the competition to win the skincare sets and congrats to the three winners below. […]

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Sonic Toothbrush – Review and Giveaway

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Sonic Toothbrush – Review and Giveaway

10 April 2015

I love Philips Sonicare brushes.  I saved up and bought my first one shortly after they launched and even though I’ve dabbled in other brushes, I’ve always, always come back to the Sonicare. I personally find it unbeatable with regards to effectiveness and ease of use, and even though I resented spending a small fortune […]

Five Things I Love: March 2015

Five Things I Love: March 2015

10 April 2015

I mentioned in my last love list that I was only going to do these monthly round-up features when the mood struck me, as I don’t like posts to feel forced which was often the case when I felt I had to put together a featuring containing five of my favourite products.  Consequently it was […]

Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation

Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation

09 April 2015

Mascaras and foundations – release something new, novel and even a tad gimmicky in the form of a mascara or a foundation and I will buy it the second it lands, which is pretty much what happened with the Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation.  As is often the case, cushion foundations have been well-received on the […]

This month sees the launch of the first Styl London monthly manicure box, which, as the names suggests, is a beauty subscription service that focuses on nail products.  As Styl London stock a range of nail wraps (and were the first in the UK to stock gel nail wraps) the boxes will contain, from what […]

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Nude Pop, Melon Pop, Sweet Pop and Wow Pop

08 April 2015

What is there not to absolutely love about Clinique’s newest launch, the Pop Lip Colour + Primers? These are pretty much everything one might want from a lipstick, both practically and aesthetically, but I think the name is a little confusing as it sounds a bit like I’m talking about two different products (the colour […]
