My Beauty Pie Order #3

After the initial excitement for my Beauty Pie orders I’ve toned it right down recently, leaving a bit of space between the orders and letting my allowance build-up, so I could feel a bit less limited on what I can buy, without having to increase…

A Few New ELF Skincare Launches

I quite like what ELF have done recently, having left the UK market for a short time (or at least gone very quiet…) before shouting about their return, and with good reason, since they’ve completely revamped and made themselves an entirely reputable contender in the…

Mask Monday: New Launches from Masquebar

Do you remember when Masquebar launched with their quad of boxes with individual masks, and that was pretty much all they had for a while? Then all of sudden, they started adding lots of new launches to their collection, and now it seems like every…

What I Took On Holiday – Sun Care (Holiday Heroes)

I took quite a bit of sun care away with me, as you can see, with the entirely reasonable justification that it was to cover all eventualities for all three of us.  Therefore I took lots of SPF for mum, Teddy and I, as well…

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…

SPF Primers (Holiday Heroes)

I WILL help you find your perfect facial SPF.  As someone who finally cracked it this year, finding an array of SPFs that suit my varying news, I’m putting out lots of SPF-led content to help you find your new SPF love.  I’ve written a…

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…

Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Protection SPF50 (Holiday Heroes)

I featured the Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Protection SPF50 in my big ol’ facial SPF post here, mentioning that I would follow-up with a full review of this fabulous new product, so here it is! The Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Protection SPF50 is part of the…

The Perfect Oil for Every Skincare Need

Even though I’m acne-prone (although it’s currently all under control, thankfully!) I absolutely love a facial oil and I think they’re one of the best things you can add to your skincare routine, even though they’re pretty controversial, as some dermatologists think oils are the…

Your Perfect Facial SPF is Probably Here (Holiday Heroes)

My holiday is in two weeks! TWO WEEKS, BABY! So I’m doing a few holiday posts which I’m tagging “Holiday Heroes” to make it easier for you guys to find them all in one place.  This is the year that I have finally pulled my…

Obagi C-Therapy Night Cream

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time then you’ll know that I am a total, utter and complete convert to the astoundingly transformative Obagi skincare line; honestly, if you have tricky skin in any way and have worked your way through hoards…

Mary Kay Clear Proof Skincare for Acne-Prone Skin

I’m not sure I’ve ever featured Mary Kay, which is crazy as it’s the sort of brand I think you and I would really like; it’s attractively packaged, innovative and generally pretty interesting, so I’ve no idea why it’s eluded a blog feature for so…

Mask Monday: Garnier Moisture Bomb Pomegranate Hydrating Mask

I’ve had a few of these Garnier sheet masks floating around and I’ve been wanting to try one for ages, but I’m funny about sheet masks and really have to be in the mood to use one.  The time eventually came around last weekend and…

Elemis Skin Exchange at John Lewis

Sometimes your skin, mind and well-being are crying out for a luxury, pampering treatment that goes on for hours, takes place in a room of serenity and costs a small fortune, because you’re worth it.  Other times, you just need a good basic facial to…
