Quick Pick Tuesday: Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser

I first heard of Kate Somerville quite a while ago as one of those brands that produced amazing skincare that was really tricky to get your hands on if you were UK based.  Then earlier this year, it was announced that the brand was coming…

Three New Launches from The Ordinary

Doesn’t it feel like The Ordinary have been around for absolutely ages? Yet it isn’t even two years since they first launched their fantastic range of affordable skincare, and at the rate they keep adding to their line, it’s quite amazing that they’re still such…

L’Occitane Aqua Réotier Skincare

Lovely, lovely L’Occitane have released a new range of skincare that’s just what the doctor ordered; the L’Occitane Aqua Réotier collection is all about moisture, promising 24 hours of hydration with a range that’s built around three key ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and calcium-rich Réotier water from…

Mask Monday: Exuviance Detox Mud Treatment

Four New Murad Launches

I’m having a total love-in with Murad recently, having revisited some of my earlier favourites and reminded myself of just how fabulous they are; they really do have some amazingly effective products so I’m always excited to hear what’s new from them. They’ve been a…

This Works Evening Detox Cleansing Water and Spray-On Exfoliant

I always have a bit of a soft spot for This Works, as their Baby Sleep Pillow Spray was something I used to rely on religiously for settling Teddy quickly to sleep when he was a baby. I’ve never tried any of their skincare though,…

Five Essential Skincare Products (for every skincare kit)

I’ve always been someone who really loves skincare and will always get more excited about a new serum than a new lipstick…although I’ll still get pretty excited about the latter too! Consequently, I’ve worked my way through a lot of skincare, and since I started…

Mask Monday: Emma Hardie Moringa Renewal Treatment Mask

The Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm has got an incredible following, yet for some reason I haven’t tried it, so I’m approaching the Emma Hardie Moringa Renewal Treatment Mask with fresh eyes and not comparing it to the cleanser.  The Emma Hardie Moringa Renewal Treatment Mask is…

Sensse Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush

There was a time, many moons ago, when both my AM and PM cleansing routine featured some form of cleansing brush.  However, in the last few years I’ve realised that my skin needs a far more gentle touch, so I tend to only use special…

Mask Monday: Amour Noir Magnetic Face Mask

Magnetic face masks are the latest novelty product to launch in the extremely innovative mask market, so I was eager to get my hands on one and give it a go, to find out if it’s actually any good, or just very novel! The Amour Noir…

Four Facial Mists That Go the Extra Mile

I have such a strange relationship with facial mists, and regularly go from using them religiously to not bothering with them at all, then finding a new batch, falling in love again, and so on, and so forth.  At the moment I am fully into…

Omorovicza Magic Moisture Mist

I think Omorovicza is probably the most featured skincare range in my entire kit as I’m usually very reluctant to part with any of the products.  They’re a brand that manage to straddle several skincare attractions: first and foremost, their products work and they work…

Five Reasons to Get to Know Pestle & Mortar Skincare

Pestle & Mortar describe themselves as “Simple Solutions for Beautiful Skin” which I think is a really accurate way to introduce them, as that’s exactly the impression you get from the collection; they’re a range designed to help improve your skin with as little fuss…
