Quick Pick Tuesday: Colgate Max White One Optic Toothpaste

22 April 2014

Colgate Max White One Optic Toothpaste is designed to give the illusion of whiter teeth immediately after use.  This is achieved with optical brighteners which are little blue lumps contained within the toothpaste that break down whilst you brush.  As we all know, blue makes teeth look whiter so it all sounds sensible, plus the […]

How was your Easter? I had grand ambitions for the four day weekend; I was going to do all sorts of spring cleaning and put together an Ikea unit I’ve had for over a year to organise all my beauty bits and bobs, but all I managed to do was steam cleaning the washing machine […]

Easter Beauty Deals and Promotions

18 April 2014

Happy Easter everyone! It’s Teddy’s first Easter but I’m fairly confident he has no idea that today is any different to any other day, especially as he’s not yet ready for solids.  However, it’s still a year of firsts for us so it’s nice for me to have an awareness of it, even if it’s […]

Reverse Washing: Fad or Fab?

Reverse Washing: Fad or Fab?

17 April 2014

I’ve read quite a bit about reverse washing recently so I thought I’d give it a go and let you know what I think.  My hair is currently prone to oiliness but with the right products it’s manageable.  It’s also fine but there’s a lot of it, and if I’m not careful it can become […]

  *Due to an update, links are currently not working but all products are available at Escentual.com* A while ago I was sent four products from the La Roche Posay range, including their updated Effaclar Duo.  The results have been mixed, and out of the four products I’d say one  is barely worth mentioning, one […]

Carmex Jasmine Green Tea Moisturising Lip Balm

16 April 2014

It’s been a while since we’ve seen any new flavours arrive from lip balm kings Carmex, so I’m glad to report that a new launch is on its way…and it’s a little bit interesting! The Carmex Jasmine Green Tea flavour is less Green Tea and more Jasmine, which on the face of it is certainly […]

Superdrug turn 50 this year (yet they don’t look a day over 17 due to their free access to all the best anti-ageing products) and to mark the occasion they’ve pulled some images from the vault to give us an insight into beauty 50 years ago.  I love stuff like this; it makes me long […]

Glossybox continues it’s extreme rollercoaster ride of providing a mix of amazing boxes then rubbish boxes then amazing boxes and so on, etc and unfortunately, for me, April’s box is a bit pants.  Every month when the box arrives I’m excited to find out what’s inside, and I hope that will never disappear as I […]
