The Hero: Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

Cleansing my skin has always been something of an obsession with me. Without a clean canvas, how can anything you put on it stand a chance of looking good? I love that the Japanese women think nothing of double-cleansing their faces everyday, twice a day - take a look at their skin to see how hard work and effort pays…

The Skin: My Mother’s Secret Is Out!

It's not often that I a) write about a skincare line in it's entirety and b) about something that someone else has been trialling. But hear me out.

The Skin: That Friday Facial… with Marian Bourne & Celgenics

They say never judge a book by it's cover, but how many times have you done just that? Hands up if that's you too. So when I heard the name Celgenics and saw the beautiful clean white and silver lines of the packaging of this new-ish range of skincare, (it launched 2 years ago) I assumed that this was a…

The Skin: Pai’s Liquid Gold in a Bottle

Delicate skin requires the delicate touch. Recently, I've been feeling more than a little delicate, and I guess it shows on the skin.

The Skin: A Collagen Shot A Day Keeps the Knife Away!

Shots. A word that normally means one of two things to me. Party time! Or a trip to the doctor for vaccinations (or some fab Vit B jabs that I once had on a weekly basis whilst on a diet, but that's a whole other story....). So all the hype on Twitter about Collagen Shots* had me well and truly…
