A Trio of Unnecessary (Yet Fabulous) Beauty Treats

I appreciate that there are some people who feel all beauty treats are unnecessary, but I'm guessing very few of those people read this blog, so I'm going to go ahead and assume that you're like me, and believe that there are certain beauty products that are absolutely necessary for everyday beauty joy; I'm talking about that really effective, everyday cleanser (currently Omorovicza's Cashmere Cleanser for me - a product I return to again and again),[...]

Quick Pick Tuesday: Alpha-H Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream

I really like Alpha-H as a brand, as I think they offer a decent range to rival much more expensive cosmeceutical brands, thanks to their dedication to acid-based exfoliation, although they do have some lovely non-acid products in their range, such as their gorgeous Vitamin E Serum.  The Alpha-H Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream is a perfect example of just how effective their products are - expect a seriously exfoliating cleanse that'll l[...]

Sisley Phyto-Lip Delight

Sisley make some of the prettiest products, that are always enticingly named and have that effortlessly chic vibe that French beauty lines always nail so well.  The Sisley Phyto-Lip Delights are pretty much as you'd expect; gorgeous to look at, lovely on the lips, whilst providing a good dose of hydration too. The Sisley Phyto-Lip Delights come in three colours so far; #cool, #pretty and #sweet.  #cool is a peachy, milky nude, #pretty i[...]

Dr Barbara Sturm Baby & Kids Range

The Dr Barbara Sturm range is one of those annoying collections that you peruse for around 10 minutes before deciding you want absolutely everything.  Glow Drops? Yes please.  Hyaluronic Ampoules? GIMME! Nappy Cream? Sorry...what was that? Rather randomly, this extremely exciting and innovative skincare range now has a Baby & Kids collection too.  It's very random, but I can see why it exists, as there are certainly people with high incomes[...]

Rodin Olio Lusso Skincare – Facial Cleansing Powder and Jasmine & Neroli Luxury Face Oil

The Jasmine & Neroli Luxury Face Oil from the Rodin Olio Lusso range is one of those products that's developed cult status, so when I was offered the chance to try it, I couldn't wait, especially as I've fallen heavily back in love with oils recently as they are so good for my skin.  The Rodin Olio Lusso collection is a luxury range of beauty products covering most elements that sit under the beauty umbrella; think gorgeous hand creams and be[...]

Fragrance Friday: Ormonde Jayne Sampaquita (made to measure)

One of the many things I love about fragrance is how personal it is; the same fragrance can evoke polarised reactions and can smell completely different from one person to the next.  If you find a fragrance that hits all the right notes (pun intended...) then it can be the start of a lifelong love affair.  With that in mind, the ability to tweak and personalise a fragrance is an extremely attractive prospect, so Ormonde Jayne are starting to mak[...]

Lancôme L’Absolu Rôses

Last year, Lancôme released a collection which could not have been more up my street: the Lancôme L'Absolu Rôses is a collection of extension shades for their L'Absolu Gloss range that's all about the pink lip; as someone who absolutely loves a pink lip, you can imagine my excitement when these beauties arrived. The extension shades four new L'Absolu Gloss Cream shades, (Caprice 132, Nuit et Jour 202, Rose Caresse 319 and Graffiti 382)[...]

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets – Review and Swatches

Everyone's been going a bit loopy for the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets as their launch has been perfectly timed; if it's an easy winter lip you're seeking in a comfortable format and a huge array of colours, you'll definitely need to bag yourself a Lip Magnet or two. Coming in 18 shades covering a decent spectrum of reds, pinks, nudes and berries, the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets are prettily presented and very easy to wear, even though they[...]
