Vivo Primer: Initial Thoughts

I wrote about my mini Vivo haul here and in my tiny splurge I bought their Primer.  I’m eagerly hunting different primers at the moment to find out more about what they can do, so I was really keen to give this one a whirl;…

Dr Nick Lowe ES Awards

Dr Nick Lowe is a Dermatologist who also has a range of high street skincare. I’m a huge fan of his Sebum Control Cleanser as even though it’s aimed at oily skin types, it doesn’t dry out the skin at all which makes a nice…

Post Party Pick-Me-Up Products

Within the next few weeks, all my good habits will fall by the wayside as I start drinking more (I’ll inevitably drink more in the next few weeks than I have all year….), sleeping less and running on autopilot until the holidays arrive and I…

Biotherm Aquasource Eye Perfection

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the fabulous Handpicked Media Gets Social which is basically a day of talks on improving your blogging skills. Obviously there’s a lot more to it than that, so if you’re interested, have a look at Beauty and the…

Following on from my recent post about eye make-up removers for sensitive eyes here, here’s another worthy addition to the list. Amie’s Bright Eyes is an oil-free and 96% natural eye make up remover designed specifically for those of us with eyes that are overly…

Boots No7 Spring 2012 Upcoming Launches

Here’s something I am very excited about as I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for the No7 brand, and I’ve recently discovered that there will be some amazing launches coming out early next year. They’re mixing things up with their make-up, but…

Philips ReAura: My Add-On Kit

Having used the ReAura a few times and got an idea of what to expect, I’ve added a few things to my skincare routine to keep my skin in good condition. I find my skin really, REALLY dries out after treatment (as expected and it’s…

Savar Wonder Lift Eye Cream

I’ve had the privilege of trying a few Savar items lately and for me, one of the stand out products is the Savar Wonder Lift Eye Cream. As with my continual search for better mascaras, the same applies to eye creams and I like to…

Shiseido Pureness Range

Shiseido’s Pureness range is a line of products aimed at those of us with combination, oily or acne-prone skin types. This week I tried out two products from Shiseido’s Pureness range; the Foaming Cleansing Fluid and the Balancing Softener. I believe that there is only…

Neutrogena Hydrating Cleansing Wipes

I realise that writing a review on cleansing wipes is unlikely to make for a riveting read, but an experience I had recently forced me to decide to give these babies a shout-out because they’re just so good.  I’ve always been a fan of cleansing…

Spotting the Difference: Things to be aware of when self-diagnosing acne

Spot the Dog.  See what I did there?  Yeah. Great.  We all know that we should be drinking more water (allegedly), eating more fruit, avoiding sugar and exercising regularly.  So if you look at your lifestyle and realise that you’re not quite managing to achieve…

My Night Time Skincare Routine

This is me asleep.  No, really, it is.   I’ve always had a slightly weird fascination with the way other beauty obsessives approach their maintenance routine as I think we all find our own way of doing things and it’s interesting to know if anyone…

Philips ReAura: What’s In The Box

As mentioned earlier, I was very excited at the arrival of my ReAura today. I’m going to spend the next couple of days watching the how-to DVD, reading the impressively comprehensive instruction manual and getting to grips with my new favourite thing before lasering the…

How I Got My Acne Under Control

I’ve had a couple of messages referencing the fact that I’ve mentioned a few times that I’ve got my acne under control and asking how I managed it. Whilst I’ve replied to the messages, I thought it might not be a bad idea to write…
