Nails Inc Daisy Lane Floral

I remember hearing about the Nails Inc Florals a while back and thinking that I couldn’t wait to try them; they reminded me of the OPI Minnie Mouse heart polish that I never managed to get my hands on, so when the Nails Inc Easter…

Favourites from the Jurlique Farm

Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Compact

The newest addition to the Clinique foundation family is the Moisture Surge CC Cream Compact (or the Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Compact Hydrating Colour Corrector SPF25 to give it it’s full and very catchy name) which is pretty much as the title suggests, an extremely hydrating…

Penhaligon’s Tralala

Penhaligon’s Tralala is the brand’s latest release which is inspired by fashion designers Meadham Kirchhoff, which makes sense considering Penhaligon’s have scented the past nine seasons of the fashion brand’s shows.  It’s worth Googleing Meadham Kirchhoff to get an idea of the sort of designs…

REN Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser

One of my favourite ways to cleanse is with a hot cloth cleanser.  It takes a bit more effort than a wipe-off cleanser, but the extra sensory benefits are worth it as you really do feel like you’re doing good things to your skin.  If…

Collection Mardi Gras

Next month, budget-friendly make-up brand Collection launches their homage to the World Cup (yawn; at the football, not the make-up, obvs) with six new releases; 3 new polish shades and 3 new lip balms, the latter of which I’m most excited about.  The new releases…

New Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Advanced

Some of you will recall a few years ago when a documentary aired declaring Boots No7’s Protect and Perfect Serum as an anti-ageing product that genuinely delivered serious results.  Cue absolute chaos as stock of the serum disappeared, queues at all Boots stores went around…

HydraTest

Oh how I do love a good gadget! However, I often find myself disappointed with beauty gadgets that don’t deliver on their promises, especially as many newly launched beauty gadgets cost a small fortune.  Consequently, I’m prone to cynicism when I read about new arrivals…

New Shades of Seventeen Quicker Slicker Nail Polish

I am so impressed with these seasonal offerings from Seventeen’s Quicker Slicker nail polish range as they’re bright, fun and don’t follow the stereotypical pastel route…that I’m aversed to a bit of pastel, but I do love a bright nail! There’s a massive 3for2 promo…

Erno Laszlo Facial at Harrods

Yesterday was one of those ‘pinch me, I’m dreaming” days as it was literally a day of pure, indulgent pleasure.  I started with a visit to my local nail parlour for a manicure and pedicure, then I was taken for a lovely Afternoon Tea at…

Mink Printer: Print Your Own Make-Up…Seriously!

Super savvy Harvard Business graduate Grace Choi has done what all beauty-lovers dreamed of by creating a 3D printer, the Mink Printer, that allows you to print your own make-up, I kid you not.  You find a colour you like (think of the possibilities!!) and…

The Body Shop Body Sorbets

I think it’s safe to say that these new launches from The Body Shop, Body Sorbets, are going to be extremely popular as soon as the sun really starts shining! The Body Shop Body Sorbets are sold as ‘a frosty burst of moisture’ which is…

Gorgeous Women Over 60

Recently I’ve been attending quite a few launches for anti-ageing products where the generally promoted view is how awful ageing is; we’re shown images and graphs detailing signs of ageing and how ‘terrible’ women can look if they don’t act immediately (men are fine to…
