Quick Pick Tuesday: Eucerin Dermatoclean Micellar Cleansing Fluid

29 July 2014

Everyone loves a good micellar, don’t they? I certainly do, especially as it’s always the first step in my evening skincare routine; I find it so much easier to just whip off all my make-up with a good micellar before then starting my cleansing process later on…If you include this as one of the cleansers […]

There are a couple of exciting new releases coming from bareMinerals, the first of which are these new 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadows.  Before you groan at the mention of the seemingly overused “BB” reference, it’s worth trying to keep an open mind as these do follow the original concept of BB as they’re […]

Quick Pick Tuesday: Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Balm with Coconut and Pear

22 July 2014

There are a few fruit flavours that I am *such* a sucker for; mostly peach, raspberry, cherry and pear and these are all flavours I seek out in beauty products.  Having said that, there’s nothing worse than a synthetic attempt at a fruit flavour and I’ve tried some truly hideous attempts at flavouring in my […]

Charles Worthington Salon at Home Amplifying Volume Treatment

18 July 2014

I’m always a bit dubious over products that claim to add volume whilst you wash your hair, and it’s only recently after trying a few new additions to my collection that I’ve started to change my approach.  I’ve always felt that volume is something you add with products post-wash, but the Charles Worthington Salon at Home […]
