The Heroes: Time for some TLC

It's often said that you are what you eat; that what you put into your body is what your body is. Feed it junk and expect to look and feel like rubbish. Same goes for your skin too. But I think your skin shows so much more than just what you've fed your body. Stress, stress and more stress can…

So here's the lowdown!If you'd like to experience Marie's magic for yourself you can!  To celebrate her appointment as Origins' Celebrity Facialist, Marie is offering bespoke skincare assessments along with…

The Skin: That Friday Facial… with Marie Reynolds

If someone had told me that I would walk out of a facial being told to consume vinegar and honey every day, I'd have laughed in their face. But that was before I met the inimitable Marie Reynolds. And now, I wouldn't let a day go by without imbibing that rather odious, yet effective concoction. But more on that later.…

The Icon: Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 10th Birthday!

There aren't many products that I come back to time and and time again, but one that I would never be without is Elemis' Pro Collagen Marine Cream. Many's the time it's saved my skin, brought it back from beyond the brink and made me feel good about myself. So I'm not in the last bit surprised that this little…

The Skin: Weleda Iris Moisturising Balancing Hydrating Masque

The weather has been playing havoc with my skin. One day it's freezing cold and I'm scraping the frost off the car windscreen, the next day the sun is merrily shining away in wash of blue skies. Add to that the central heating indoors, and you can see why the constant change in temperatures could be playing merry havoc with…

The Skin: Merumaya Integrative Effective Skincare

LP Skin Therapy – De-stressing My Skin

A sad confluence of four events in the space of a few short months means that I have been going through the most stressful period of my life at the moment, and something I wouldn't wish on my worse enemy, (not that I have any enemies I'm aware of...).Anyway, it just so happened that I was sent some samples sizes…

The Review: Oriflame Everlasting Foundation

Foundation is called that for a reason - it's the base of your whole look.  Get that right, and you have the perfect base on which to build your look.Recently I've been trying out the Oriflame Everlasting Foundation with SkinRenew Complex.  If you've not heard of Oriflame before, it's a Swedish make-up and skincare brand that's been around since 1967…

The Skin: Lighter & Brighter Mask

I've got a new theory.  If I want a shortcut route to knowing how good a skincare range is, try out the mask first.  The way I see it, the brand will have packed it full of all the best things the other skincare products will be boasting, and it's a quick way to see some instant results.Well, that's my…

Winter Skin: Nivea Rescue & Care SOS

I'm a little bit fanatical about moisturising and my obsession only gets worse with the changing of the seasons.  Cold air outside coupled with warm, artificially heated air indoors is a perfect recipe for dehydrated, lacklustre skin.Although I wouldn't say I have dry skin - in fact, I vrey definitely fall into the 'normal' category - come the colder Autumn…
