My five skincare rules

So I’ve been thinking about skincare recently and thinking about the basic skincare rules that I always follow. I’m not going to talk to you about the best moisturiser, if you should retinol or Q-10 or the best chemical peel. We’re all different with different kinds of skin and you know best what works for…

New Release – Clarins Pore Perfecting products.

I’m really loving this little beauty that arrived at my door this week. I’ve mentioned before that I have oily skin. There’s nothign like looking in the mirror an hour after applying perfect make-up to find a horribly shiny forehead and nose. I’m not talking about a nice, dewy complexion here. To have oily skin…

High Five – My Current Favourites

It’s a rainy afternoon so there’s nothing better than for me to plunge into my collection and pick out my current faves. I have to add that some of these are by no means new to the market, they’re just particular favourites of mine. Original Source Lime & Coconut Milk I tend to buy whichever…

Product Review – Benefit Puff Off

Let’s face it, you either love Benefit or hate them and I have to say I’m coming down on the side of love. At the launch of Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara about six months ago I was also given some of the new Puff Off  eye gel. As you would expect this aims to reduce…

Review – Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster

You can expect a few fake tan reviews coming up – I’ve just come back from my holidays I tested a few out. I’ll admit when Clarins sent me this one I was a little cautious. This is a serum which should be added to your regular body moisturiser. Just add a few drops –…

For the girls! – the next subscription box

This popped up on my Twitter feed recently and I couldn’t help but think it was a fabulous idea. Most people – particularly those in the bloggersphere – have heard of subscription boxes. For usually around £10 a box will arrive each month with a selection of taster products for skincare and make-up. There are…

L’Oreal Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover – The Review

Blogging isn’t all sunshine and roses and from the very beginning I’ve made sure to include the bad with the good. For ages I’ve been using Nivea’s Eye Make-Up remover on the recommendation of another blogger. I’ve been using it for ages because it seemed to last forever and did exactly what it said on…

Help Is At Hand – Kiehl’s Skin Rescue

  There’s snow on the grounds so it’s exactly the right time of year for a review of Kiehl’s Skin Rescue. I make no secret of the fact that I love Kiehl’s skincare. I find their no-nonsense approach and lack of gimmicks extremely satisfying and I find their products do exactly what they say they will….

Skinician – Local Skincare Hero

Like everyone else I would imagine my skin has been suffering from the weather. In the cold and the wind I notice plenty more blotches and red patches on my skin. It’s not helped by central heating either, thanks to that I now get dry patches on my normally oily skin. I decided to try…
