Birchbox July 2015

Birchbox July 2015

04 July 2015

…and now for something a little different; finally! The Birchbox July 2015 is a good’n, with great contents and a slightly different approach to the packaging, making it a fun, summery and enjoyable box (although it feels wrong calling it a box…) that I think most people will be pretty happy with! As you can […]

Fragrance Friday: Atelier Cologne’s Vanille Insensée Cologne Absolue

Fragrance Friday: Atelier Cologne’s Vanille Insensée Cologne Absolue

03 July 2015

During my pregnancy I met with the creators behind the Atelier Cologne brand and I remember thinking how fascinating they were – each and every scent they created had a kind of play-like story behind it that they’d imagine to create the scent with; to give you an idea, here’s the backstory for the Vanille […]

An Introduction to LightStim

An Introduction to LightStim

02 July 2015

I think, *think*, my skin is finally on track.  I’ve said that a few times in previous posts before all hell broke loose and my skin became a mess again, so I’m treading carefully with any proclamations, but I am wearing a lot less make-up, suffering from fewer breakouts, and generally enjoying better skin.  I […]

An Ode to Seche Vite

An Ode to Seche Vite

30 June 2015

Occasionally there are products that I just cannot get enough of; I know I’ve written about them before, but I want to write about them again, so I’m going to give them their very own ode…although not in the literal sense as I’m not sure I can put together a decent poem about a top […]

HydraFacial with HydraEyes at Waterhouse Young

HydraFacial with HydraEyes at Waterhouse Young

30 June 2015

I’ve been doing really well with finding time to commit to regular facials and I do believe it’s paying off.  Last week I visited Waterhouse Young – a London based skin clinic – to try out their most popular treatment, the HydraFacial, with a HydraEyes add-on. As I’m having some pretty hardcore laser treatment at […]

Badger Balm Badger Summer Essentials Collection

Badger Balm Badger Summer Essentials Collection

29 June 2015

I think we all know of Badger Balms, don’t we? I think I tend to associate the brand with sleep balms and lip balms, but having had a little nose around online I was pretty astounded to find just how huge the range is! Think body care, skin care, hair care, baby care, sun care…although […]

Mask Monday: Aesop Primrose Facial Cleansing Masque

Mask Monday: Aesop Primrose Facial Cleansing Masque

29 June 2015

I really like Aesop; I think their apothecary-style packaging with the no-nonsense labelling is extremely appealing (and pretty gender neutral, which is also fab) and I especially like the fact that you can often find ingredients and formulated products that you don’t often find elsewhere.  A good example of this is the Primrose Facial Cleansing […]

More Marc Jacobs joy for you today, with the second of the Summery Sorbet editions from the line of Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrances, Daisy Eau So Fresh Sorbet.   Before we begin, I have to say, lovin’ the word play on Eau (oh) So Fresh. Wood and musk notes sit at the base of this […]

Quick Pick Tuesday: CosRx Pimple Master Patches

23 June 2015

If you’re spot-prone (and you know it, clap your hands – *clap, clap*) then you’ll know how annoyingly stubborn certain spots can be.  In my experience, there’s no real reason behind why some will appear and disappear within a day or two (shy, maybe?) whilst others will hang around so long that you end up […]
