Bulk Buy OCD?

Do I have a problem here? I mean really? Do I need to (insert American accent here for the full effect) "go see someone?" Because for some reason there are products that I just can't buy only one of. Why buy one when two will do? I have so many products that never see the bottom of the bottle/pan/tube (insert any…

The Skin: StriVectin TSV at QVC

Is it just coincidence that on the day I turn another year older, (yup, birthday today folks) QVC's TSV is all about anti-ageing skincare? Or am I just paranoid? In any case, I postively need to let you little beauty bunnies know about this - I can't keep skincare goodies like this to myself, it just wouldn't be fair. I'm…

The Skin: John Tsagaris & SkinPointEight

So, when I said I was pre-toxing before the madness of Christmas sets in, I didn't mean this! Too sick to get out of bed for six days, never mind putting on makeup! It was all I could do to get up, brush my teeth and go through the motions with my skincare. If I could have paid someone to…

That Friday Facial: 111Skin MicroPen & Bio Cellulose Facial Tone Mask

After spooking the life out of everyone you'll be wanting to take all that Halloween makeup off quickly and completely. Now, you could go the high tech route, with…

Ramadan: The Aftermath – Skin Rehydration

  Try not drinking water from sunrise to sunset. Now try doing that for thirty consecutive days. However much water you try to glug down in those few short hours between sunset and the morning, it's never going to be enough. So post Ramadan, my skin was feeling justifiably dehydrated and dessicated. It was time to take serious action, from…

The Hero*: No7 Youthful Eye Serum

If you've even glanced at the blog before, you'll know that finding a good eye cream is a bit of an ongoing pushing-water-uphill struggle for me. Oh, to find one that will target the fine lines and wrinkles and make them a thing of history. That will get rid of the awful puffiness that seems to haunt me every day.…

The Skin: Clayspray – The Masque…. Reviewed

There's nothing I like better to do on a Sunday than to potter around the house, organising my things, wearing all manner of face masks with which to scare anyone who comes my way! It's the perfect antidote to the rushing around of the week. This week's mask comes from the new-ish brand Clayspray. I have to say, I was…

The Skin: That Friday Facial…… with Milk Beauty

There's very little that's as decadent as having someone come to you in your home (or place of work) and give you a little pampering. Whether its a quick mani/pedi, a full body massage or waxing, what better than to finish your treatment and not have to trudge your way back home... because, hey, you're already there! So I was…

Spending the days learning and writing about beautiful things that make us feel and look more beautiful, trying out new products and treatments and sharing the information with my lovely readers, both here on the blog and within the printed and online publications I write for. But of course,…
