Tropic Skincare Tahitian Vanilla and Coconut Luxury Bath Foam

When I think of Tropic, I think of their amazingly natural skincare, then more recently their fantastic make-up range too.  I don't really associate them with bath and body products, even though they have a pretty decent range available, including the Tropic Skincare Tahitian Vanilla and Coconut Luxury Bath Foam which gives baths a little bit of pampering luxury that we could all do with right now. I didn't know how I'd get on with the scent o[...]

Mask Monday: Apivita Moisturising Face Mask with Sea Lavender

It's been absolutely ages since I did a Mask Monday post, even though I'm still using masks a lot, particularly any that offer hydration as my skin is still adjusting to a higher retinol percentage and it is very dry and flaky.  To me, the mark of a good moisturising mask is one that feels rich on the skin but doesn't absorb too quickly, as otherwise you might as well just apply a thick layer of moisturiser - I want a mask to sit on the skin, pro[...]

QVC UK TSV: Elemis 5 Piece Pro-Collagen Hydrate & Nurture Collection

In these horrendously scary times, I feel that things like a little bit of at-home pampering can make all the difference - I don't think I've ever taken as many baths as I have since I started my self-isolation! With that in mind, the arrival of the Elemis 5 Piece Pro-Collagen Hydrate & Nurture Collection QVC UK TSV couldn't be better timed.  The set is a good mix of skincare and make-up, with some superstars in the making mixed in with old f[...]

AD: HERPOtherm Cold Sore Treatment Review

Ad/Sponsored Content - I have been paid to feature this product.  Did you know that 90% of people in Europe carry the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 - the main cause of cold sores - but only 30% of carriers produce blisters? That's a huge percentage of people who would benefit from a reliable cold sore treatment that's safe and easy to use, so I'm excited to show you the HERPOtherm Cold Sore Treatment, a purse-friendly device that's free from chemicals[...]

CeraVe Cleansers Review

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser and SA Smoothing Cleanser

When it comes to skincare, my soft spot has always been cleansers; a good cleanser can turn a mundane, everyday experience into a few moments of relaxing luxury, so I have a HUGE collection of cleansers that I dip in and out of depending on my mood.  Since the arrival of the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser and it's complimentary buddy, the CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser, I've almost exclusively used them, which I think says a lot about how fantastic they are[...]

Philip Kingsley Pure Blonde Colour-Correcting Weekly Shampoo and Mask

Philip Kingsley is easily my favourite haircare brand; it's just such a reliably decent and solid range that provides easy-to-understand product collections that you can mix and match to find your perfect combination...and don't even get me started on the amazing Elasticizer, which every single hair type would benefit hugely from using - it's just one of those amazing products that gives strength to hair in a way no other product (that I'm familia[...]

Clinique Even Better Pop Lip Colour Foundation

The Clinique Pop Lip Colour Lipsticks are one of the best lipstick formulas around; buttery yet not slippery, pigmented yet not thick, and long-lasting without any dryness at all, so when the Clinique Even Better Pop Lip Colour Foundation lipsticks launched (confusing name, I'll explain) I was very excited as this is a product designed to help those of us who struggle with finding their perfect nude. The Clinique Even Better Pop Lip Colour[...]

Kiko Pop Revolution

I've decided I'm going to treat myself to some Kiko bits soon, as each time I visit their site, I'm consumed with lust for all their beautiful make-up.  The Kiko Pop Revolution is another classic collection from Kiko, themed around what's clearly a 60's/early 70's vibe that makes my make-up loving heart squeal with joy - the promo image is of a girl with OTT liner, nude lips and big hair and it just makes me bitter and jealous that I never got to[...]
