Jo Malone London Christmas 2018

It's not even December, but a lot of this lovely festive Bring on the Baubles range from Jo Malone London is already sold out online, so you might need to head to stores if you really want something. I'm not going to lie - it's not my favourite Jo Malone London collection. I was a little underwhelmed. They have a year to come up with something, and this is it? Hmmm. But it is a bright, sparkly, festive range this year - and the hashtag is … [Read more...]

Clinique Fresh Pressed Clinical Daily + Overnight Boosters

Clinique has this habit of launching new products with impossibly long names. Here's another one that has recently hit counters - Fresh Pressed Clinical Daily + Overnight Boosters with Pure Vitamin C 10% and Vitamin A (Retinol). See -  long name. Basically this is Clinique's take on hot beauty ingredients Vitamins C and A. Here's more from Clinique's Dermatologist on both ingredients, if you aren't that familiar with them.

Scent your home with candles

I love a scented candle, don't you? Especially at this time of year. There are loads out there - and plenty with festive scents if you fancy. They also make great gifts, but don't stint on the price. Cheap scented candles are not nice. You don't need to spend absolute fortunes, but you're not going to find anything with a scent that will last in the pound shop. Anya Hindmarch Candles are available at anyahindmarch.com, and come in small, … [Read more...]

I've had loads of info sent to me for beauty offers for this coming weekend, so here are a few that I think are pretty decent: Elemis is a lovely brand, and it's not the cheapest, so when you are … [Read more...]

Face Vinegar? Yep, it’s a thing.

I love a new product press release when it's something I've never heard of before - because that's rare after 15 years plus doing this job -  but Face Vinegar?! Doesn't sound that appealing does it? However, don't judge a book by its cover, or in this case, the name. For a start, this isn't really a vinegar, it's essentially a toner. You use it after cleansing, and before moisturising. Gallinee Face Vinegar contains Actibiome, a prebiotic … [Read more...]
