Beauty Pie Month #2 (One Month On)

Okay so it’s definitely more than a month since I purchased by second box of goodies from Beauty Pie, and shared the contents with you here, but to be honest, I’ve kind of lost a bit of enthusiasm for the products.  I think it’s mainly…

What I Took on Holiday – Makeup (Holiday Heroes)

You may have read my recent post on the skincare I took with me and thought how streamlined and carefully edited it was.  The exact opposite is the case here, I don’t know why I felt the need to take so much makeup on holiday…

What I Took On Holiday – Skincare (Holiday Heroes)

I went on holiday with the very best intentions, promising to maintain a solid skincare routine, do lots of treatments and masks, wear a high, daily SPF and return with skin glowing from TLC rather than excessive sun.  Other than wearing the daily SPF (Neostrata…

Travel-Friendly Makeup Brush Sets (Holiday Heroes)

I desperately tried to get all the Holiday Heroes content up and running before I left for my actual holiday, as I knew how rubbish it would be to talk about products great for a holiday after mine had finished, but hey ho, here we…

Big Beauty Bundle Competition

I think we can safely say that Summer is pretty much over (boo) although there’s still a bit of a sun left, Autumn feels very now.  To cheer us up, I’ve put together a fantastic bundle of beauty goodies for one very lucky winner.  Let’s…

Birchbox UK September 2018

The Birchbox UK September 2018 is attractively presented in a mosaic-style box and contains five samples.  There’s a good mix, although they’re all pretty small, but the lead product is a Benefit Box O’Powder which definitely adds some strength to the contents. Alongside the Benefit blush,…

Glossybox UK September 2018

I’m rather late with my beauty box posts this month as I was on holiday for the first couple of weeks, but better late than never at all, especially since the Glossybox UK September 2018 is a great little box that’s well worth a post.…

Sun Care Finishing Touches

I’ve written quite a bit about sun care and SPF as part of my Holiday Heroes series, with this post looking at some of the finishing touches that can enhance the other products that fall under the sun care umbrella.  When I return from holiday,…

Holiday Ready Feet with Margaret Dabbs and Sanctuary Spa (Holiday Heroes)

I forgot how much maintenance was necessary to get my woefully neglected body ready to be paraded around in a bikini – it almost doesn’t seem worth it…almost.  I’ve got my waxing booked for tomorrow (it’s been a while since I’ve had a wax, it’s…

Sun Care Innovations (Holiday Heroes)

Just when you thought I had said all I needed to say about SPF and sun care…you were wrong, I still have loads, starting with a look at these five great innovations in the sun care field: I’ve mentioned my love for Garnier Ambre Solaire…

Skin Design London C Antioxidant Glow Serum (and Dermaroller)

A few months ago I had a fantastic facial courtesy of Skin Design London (check out my full review here – must book in again when I get back from holiday) which included a take home Dermaroller.  I was also sent one of their key…

Family SPFs for the Body (Holiday Heroes)

I’m such a total convert to SPF in all its forms, which might sound like a silly thing to say, but I remember planning holidays years ago where I would take an SPF15 for my whole body, which I would then reduce to single digits…
