AquaGold Facial at Adonia Medical Clinic

When was the last time I reviewed a facial treatment? I can't believe how long it's been, but honestly, I think it's because my skin is behaving so well recently (please don't let this be "famous last words...") that I haven't really felt the need to try any new treatments.  Having said that, there are definitely a chosen few that I've read about and really fancied, one of which is the AquaGold Facial which I was kindly invited to try at the Adon[...]

Mask Monday: No7 Laboratories Cica-Rescue Skin Paste

Disclaimer:  Product paid for by me, Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature. I briefly shared my thoughts on the No7 Laboratories Cica-Rescue Skin Paste in my feature on Cica skincare here, but I wanted to give this a full review as it really is a fantastic product that deserves it's own post.  The No7 Laboratories Cica-Rescue Skin Paste is a really interesting product that's unusual to find on the high street and certainly isn't[...]

Mask Monday: L’Occitane Aqua Reotier Mineral Moisture Mask

It's been a while since I posted a new Mask Monday, as I've mostly been working my way through some existing favourites, such as the I'm From Mugwort Mask or the Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Mask, but when I returned from my holiday I found I needed something gentle yet highly moisturising, so I decided to give the L'Occitane Aqua Reotier Mineral Moisture Mask a go, which is a mineral-rich hydrating mask suitable for all skin types, tha[...]

Mask Monday: Ecooking Peeling Mask

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* If this is anything other than your first time visiting my blog, you'll probably know that I'm a bit of a mask fan and I always believe that one of the best mask treatments you can add to your routine is an acid mask, as they do so much in so little time, that even the beauty-weary would be able to find a couple of minutes to indulge.  I have my firm favourites when it comes to acid masks as I like one that'll do all the[...]

Cica in Skincare – Why You Need It and What to Try

Cica is an ingredient that's suddenly become very relevant in my skincare routine over the past year ago, as it's one of those ingredients that really does what it promises to do.  Centella Asiatica, or Cica for short, is a medical herb that's regularly featured in Asian skincare, particularly many of the most reputable K-Beauty brands, and it's an ingredient that's slowly starting to find it's way into more of our high street ranges too, with No[...]

QVC UK TSV: Elemis Reveal Radiant Skin Collection

There have been some incredible Elemis QVC UK TSVs over the last couple of years, but I think this one, the Elemis Reveal Radiant Skin Collection, is my favourite so far.  Six brilliant and iconic Elemis products, all of which are full-sized apart from one - Elemis TSVs always go quickly, but I think this will be one of those that flies out of stock, so ready yourself! I really am so excited about these products as I think they're a great[...]

Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller

Occasionally something will show up online that I know is going to cause a lot of excitement, which is exactly what I thought would be the case with the Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller when it first popped-up on their Instagram feed.  Consequently I kept my eye on the Beauty Pie site to see when it would become available, then last week, Caroline Hirons posted about its imminent arrival and I started refreshing the "accessories" pag[...]

Mask Monday: Paula’s Choice Radiance Renewal Mask

*PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25856" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] I have a little selection of skincare products that I keep in my kit for when I really just cannot be bothered.  These are the sort of products that do amazing things in a very short space of time with minimal effort, and the Paula's Choice Radiance Renewal Mask is a great example of these types of products.  It's a mask that you can use a[...]

Six Ways to Introduce Retinol into Your Skincare Routine

*PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25836" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] Alex at I Heart Beauty has phenomenal skin.  Every time I see her I ask what it is she's doing, and she always preaches the power of a decent retinol, then every time I promise myself I'll get regular with retinol in my routine and it never happens.  Then, during an Obagi consultation last year when I was getting itchy feet with my routin[...]

Botanicals Cleanse Melts

[lookbook id="25681" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links* I wouldn't say Botanicals are a huge brand that you see absolutely everywhere, but they've certainly built themselves a reputation so that you regularly see people raving about their products on social media.  Therefore, I was excited to get my hands on their cult Cleanse Melts.  There are currently two Botanicals Cleanse Melts available, N[...]
