Sweet Easter Beauty Deals

It's Easter! Time to indulge yourselves with at least one chocolate egg. But let's not go overboard. Don't gorge yourself on chocolate, or face the consequences! I love this little Misslyn Chocolate Brown Duo Eyebrow Powder kit, that looks like chocolate, but just gives you great brows! (It's £8.75, at beautybay.com or Primark, and comes in three shades.) But there are plenty of beauty deals on 5pm to either indulge our sweet tooth … [Read more...]

Get a Great Deal on a Tan

It's that odd time of year when it's not really that warm, but it's not that cold, and some days you can shed a layer, and others, it's back to the fake fur. So, it's time to bring a little bit of a sunshine glow to your beauty routine with a fake tan. I'm not a great tanner, but I do love a bit of sparkle, and these lovely Shimmering Dry Body Oil Sprays from Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter are great for a litlte boost, and a shimmery addition to … [Read more...]

Be a Makeup Master with 5pm…or cheat!

It's fair to say I am addicted to BBC's makeup reality show, GLOW UP: Britain's Next Make-Up Star. It's on on Wednesday nights on BBC1, presented by Stacey Dooley, with excellent judges, uber makeup artist, Val Garland, and MAC Senior Artist Dennis Skinner, and if you love makeup, you will love it. It's all a bit car-crash TV at times - some of the application is, well, not great - I'm being kind, it's awful!  But it's a perfect reality show … [Read more...]

Give your hands a treat!

Look down at those hands. They work hard, they hold your phone in them almost all day, they fix, they mend, they hug, they play, they stop, they start - they are at the centre of everything we do! So, give them a treat sometimes! I have learned over the years, and a ferocious five-year battle with a particularly nasty strain of psoriasis, that hand cream is not a luxury, but a necessity.  I don't scrimp on handcream - I like to treat my … [Read more...]

Fight The Frizz – Treat Your Hair with 5PM

I was recently sent four IGK products to beat my particular type of Frizz - Frizz at the Ends. According to IGK there are four types of frizz, and they have all the products you will ever need to tame them. Perhaps. But we always find popping into salon for a conditioning treatment and/or a blow dry does the trick. And if it's really bad, maybe it's a keratin trreatment you need? So, let's look at the IGK products, and then some super 5pm … [Read more...]

Lash Love with 5pm Deals

It was National Lash Day on Tuesday (Feb 19), did you know? Not quite sure what that entailed, but let's celebrate it a little late with some lash love. Who doesn't love a mascara? And maybe hate it at the same time - it can be one of the most frustrating beauty products. My current favourite is a Clinique mascara that is now discontinued, and I am at the very end of the last tube I bought on eBay. I am gutted! These are the best-selling and … [Read more...]

Sunny 5pm Beauty Deals!

I've been all about the sunshine these past few weeks. I've been writing about sunny beauty products, smelling sunny scents, watching the glorious sunshine on Shipwrecked (I know, I know, it's addictive) and dreaming of sunnier days. I was also sent this new sunscreen brand, which has me looking out my passport and trawling the travel apps on my phone. Sunshapers is a new kind of sunscreen, the brainchild of Barcelona-born Rosa Gardella Trias, … [Read more...]
