Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream

Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream

  I try not to rave too much about products unless I really love them because I am aware that people base decisions on what to part with their hard-earned cash for on the strength of blog reviews.  But today I can’t hold back from raving about this.  I have had a small bottle of … Continue reading

Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair

Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair

I am really bad at remembering to use eye cream.  Terrible but true.  I do sweep my regular moisturiser across my eye area (I’m not an animal!) but I tend to forget to use a specific product.  I have recently been thinking that my eye lids look like they have too much skin and I … Continue reading

Matcha Green Tea Challenge

If you’ve read my blog before you will probably have figured out by now that I’m fairly close to obsessed with skincare.  If you haven’t read my blog before, hello!  So anyway, I spend a lot of time trying to sort out my problematic skin.  I’m 23 and I get spots, dry skin, eczema and am starting … Continue reading

Tria Hair Removal Laser

Yves Saint Laurent Shocking Mascara

Yves Saint Laurent Shocking Mascara

Mascara is the one make-up item I really couldn’t live without.  For some people it’s lipstick, or foundation, but for me it’s definitely mascara.  I am one of those unfortunate people cursed with short, fine, poker straight eyelashes and to top it off I have small eyes too.  If you too suffer these unfortunate afflictions … Continue reading

King of Shaves follow up

If you saw my other post about a complaint I made to King of Shaves here you might be interested to hear an update, so here it is… A lovely woman called Jackie responded to my email and has been absolutely brilliant, organising for me to return my razor for investigation and replacing it for … Continue reading

Redken Color Extend Radiant-10

Redken Color Extend Radiant-10

Hair products are my real weakness when it comes to beauty products.  At last count I think I had over 50 crammed onto my shelf.  And that shelf is a bookcase I had to buy purely because I didn’t have room for all my products.  I know this is excessive and I probably have a … Continue reading
