A Facial Workout

A Facial Workout

Slender.  Tone.  Two words that conjure up a whole host of images.  Lithe bodies, super-sleek, taut skin, beautiful muscle definition.  I've long had a Slendertone for the dreaded tummy area but I was lucky enough to be asked to go along to the (re)launch of the Slendertone Face.

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation – Le Teint Touche Eclat

Touche Eclat is iconic in the world of beauty products.  Even if you don't wear any other make-up, the highlighting light reflecting wand is almost indispensable in just about every women's make-up bag.  I'm sure there some statistic that would tell us that there's one sold every something seconds, but suffice to say, it's a rare woman (and some men!)…

Hair Up Do @Superdrug

So it's that time of year, when we get all excited about Christmas before we've even jetted off for a summer holiday.  It's called Christmas in July for the fashion and beauty press, and given the weather this year, I'm wondering if we missed out on summer completely.I'll do a round up of my favourite bits coming your way this…

Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+

Since completing my 5-day Soulmate Juice Cleanse, (which I've tweeted loads about but have yet to write all about on here for you), I've been keen to use some natural products on my skin, (which I have to say, was transformed during the cleanse!).One product which I now wouldn't be without is the fabulous Trilogy Anti-Oxidant+ Rosehip Oil.  It's is…
