L’Occitane Warm Almond Christmas Collection (Act Now!)

I think a L’Occitane Christmas gift is one of the safest bets when purchasing for someone if you’re not sure what to buy, as they are such a lovely brand that I bet everyone and anyone would be happy to find something from them under…

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 – Hair and Body (Holiday Heroes)

I’ve shared the (rather excessive) makeup I took away with me here, as well as the considerably more refined skincare here, now it’s the hair and body products, which again were a lot more carefully selected than the abomination of makeup I selected. I’ll also…

Sun Care Finishing Touches

I’ve written quite a bit about sun care and SPF as part of my Holiday Heroes series, with this post looking at some of the finishing touches that can enhance the other products that fall under the sun care umbrella.  When I return from holiday,…

Holiday Ready Feet with Margaret Dabbs and Sanctuary Spa (Holiday Heroes)

I forgot how much maintenance was necessary to get my woefully neglected body ready to be paraded around in a bikini – it almost doesn’t seem worth it…almost.  I’ve got my waxing booked for tomorrow (it’s been a while since I’ve had a wax, it’s…

Sun Care Innovations (Holiday Heroes)

Just when you thought I had said all I needed to say about SPF and sun care…you were wrong, I still have loads, starting with a look at these five great innovations in the sun care field: I’ve mentioned my love for Garnier Ambre Solaire…

Family SPFs for the Body (Holiday Heroes)

I’m such a total convert to SPF in all its forms, which might sound like a silly thing to say, but I remember planning holidays years ago where I would take an SPF15 for my whole body, which I would then reduce to single digits…

New Launches from Dove (along with some older favourites)

Whenever I write something about Dove, I start it in pretty much the same way, by declaring the fact that I have a real soft spot for the brand – it’s just one of those brands that I’ve grown up loving and I can still…

Revisited: Friction Free Shaving Razor Subscription Service

A couple of years ago I featured the relatively recently launched Friction Free Shaving (FFS) service, which is a razor delivery service designed for women, to ensure you never run out of razor blades and never finding yourself forced to use a blunt one.  They’ve…

Yoppie Tampon Delivery Service

There have been a few tampon/sanitary towel delivery services around for the last couple of year and it appears to be a bit of a thing now.  Most of them are pretty good, albeit a tad frilly and fussy, which not everyone wants during their…

New Dove Anti-Perspirant Formulations: Skincare For Your Underarms #RealUnderarms

*Sponsored Content* I have a well documented love for Dove anti-perspirants as I really do think they’re the best around and I can’t actually remember the last time I used something else.  The main reason I reach for Dove more than anything else is because…

The Soap Co. Black Poppy & Wild Fig Hand Wash and Bar Soap

The Soap Co. are an awesome enterprise that tick all the boxes: their products are cool and have a bit of an edgy vibe to them, their package design is inclusive thanks to the braille lettering on the front and they also have a real…

Body Moisturiser Sprays: Worth the Hype?

The one thing I fail miserably at is moisturising my body, as to be frank, I just cannot be bothered.  I’ve been sent the most luxurious, heavenly-scented creams, yet after the initial few uses, I never stick with it.  This is for a couple of…

Total Bath Joy with ESPA Bath and Body Products

I’ve had this long-term fantasy about what the perfect bath would be like, once I finally moved somewhere that actually had a bath, after living in a property with a shower for over 10 years.  As soon as I knew I was moving, I started…
