Make a date to exfoliate!

Exfoliation is key to good skin. You have to sometimes slough off those dead skin cells to let the new ones shine through. I find it particularly helpful at a few different times of the year - as spring appears, before summer holidays, at the end of summer, and in the middle of winter. Exfoliating face and body is key to maintaining healthy skin. Clarins launched three new classic style exfoliators last month - their new Face Scrubs. The … [Read more...]

Fringe Benefits with 5pm

Forget the crowds, the flyers, and the sore feet at the Edinburgh Fringe, which is in full flow now - the only fringe I am interested in is one of the hair variety! I'm currently sporting my hair in a curly style - see this previous post - complete with a curly fringe. Fringes come and go from year to year - they're hard to handle in the heat, but they can also give you mega cool points - look at Debbie Harry and Florence Welch for example? They … [Read more...]

Skin Brightening with Emma Hardie and 5pm Deals

To do that, there are loads of brightening products, featuring various skincare ingredients that help brighten, tighten and boost. Emma … [Read more...]

Spa Treats Under £50

Sometimes, it's just time to treat yourself. Take five, get away from home life, and have a few hours to yourself to be pampered and feel relaxed. And with 5pm you can do that for less than £50.

Polished Summer Feet

Granted, I've not had any sandals on for over a week now, but it is summer, and if you are heading on holiday or an eternal optimist like me, then it's time you got yourself some polished summer feet. Using a foot cream is hugely important in summer, as your feet can develop more hard skin and calluses in sandals, particularly if they are the clog soled kind I love. SVR Xerial 30/50 Extreme Crème Pieds Feet Care (£10, lookfantastic.co.uk), … [Read more...]

Curly hair. It's back. You heard it here first. You will be heading for a perm by the end of this year, mark my words! I touched on this in the Beauty Trends post the other week, but with the return of 80s-tastic Stranger Things this week, curly hair was at the forefront of my mind. And on my head. I have straightened the life out of my curls for decades now, but in the last month or so decided to embrace them, as you can see on my Instagram … [Read more...]
