BIO-EXTRACTS: BESPOKE, CUSTOMISABLE SKINCARE

BIO-EXTRACTS: BESPOKE, CUSTOMISABLE SKINCARE

When a multi-award winning skincare expert, famed for her original brand, decides to add to her roster of skincare offerings, you know it's time to take notice. So when I found out that Russian-born Marina Shcherbinina, one of the founders of the much-loved NuBo Skincare brand, was launching a new concept, I sat up and took notice. Especially as this concept was something…
REN Keep Young & Beautiful Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift

REN Keep Young & Beautiful Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift

It's not often I'll post about a new skincare product within a week of trialling it, but I've been so impressed by the new eye cream from REN after just three days that I had to tell you about it as soon as I could! If you're a regular reader (welcome back!) then you'll know finding a good eye cream is…

Review: Phytomer Pionnière XMF White Skin Translucency Cream

New season makeup trends are calling for fresh, clean skin and the no-makeup makeup look. Of course, "no makeup" really only means minimal makeup, so glowy, flawless, healthy looking skin is a must. While Asian skin doesn't tend to show its age through wrinkles, what does give us away in the antiageing game is hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Yes, we're…

The VIDEO: Skincare Empties

As much as I love my skincare (#skincaregeek alert!), it's rare that I actually finish a product down to the last drop. Not from any nonsensical idea that skin needs to be continually challenged with new products and more from a need to keep trying new product launches. But of course, there are those favourites that I keep coming back…
Currently Obsessed #4: The Instant Overnight Facial in a Bottle

Currently Obsessed #4: The Instant Overnight Facial in a Bottle

A cursory scroll though these pages will reveal that I'm more than a little obsessed with skincare, so it's no great surprise that a skincare product makes it onto my C.O. list within the first few weeks. What is slightly alarming, however, is exactly how obsessed I am with this wonder product from Alpha-H. How obsessed? Let me fill you in.…

The Skin: Antonia Burrell – Bespoke Facial

The Skin: Antonia Burrell – Bespoke Facial

Call me shallow, but if I'm going to see a facialist, I like to see that their skin is looking good. Go on, be honest, I'm sure you're all the same? So as soon as I meet Antonia Burrell at her clinic in Notting Hill for a facial, you know I'm in good hands. Literally. Her skin is literally glowing; radiant and…
Budget Buy: Le Petit Olivier Hand Cream

Budget Buy: Le Petit Olivier Hand Cream

I love me a good hand cream. Rich, luxurious, moisturising, hydrating and plumping. But I don't always want to spend a ridiculous amount on it... I mean, it's always getting washed off! So I'm enamoured with this gorgeous little tube from Le Petit Olivier which I discovered recently. It's super thick, but doesn't leave a horrible greasy film on the hands which leaves you…
Vichy…for the vertically challenged

Vichy…for the vertically challenged

Vichy has long been a brand I've trusted and turned to. The fact that it's well priced and easily available *may* have been a factor before I became a skincare junkie and would rely on whatever was easy to get hold of. But recently, Vichy has become less of a stand-by and more of a seek-it-out must-have and their latest…
Alpha H – the Skin Transformer

Alpha H – the Skin Transformer

I've long heard all the accolades lauded on the skin aficionados' favourite, the all-hallowed Liqiud Gold, but I'd never really tried it myself, so my natural curiosity took over: in the spirit of spring cleaning, I've been trying the Alpha-H 7 day Challenge to see if I could see a difference in the appearance and condition of my skin within the…
