Shower Shaking with L’Occitane

April may be over, but showers are still happening! Just the hot kind, that wake you up in the morning, and hopefully not the miserable kind that ruin your hair on a night out! I can't function without standing under the shower, and I love anything that smells great to wake me up. But, because of my palmoplantar psoriasis, I have to be careful what I use. I have settled in the last few years on a bar of soap  - Tomato Soap - by Nesti Dante. I … [Read more...]

NEW suncare from Clarins

 Last weekend's heatwave was wonderful, and it put me right in the holiday mood! Luckily I had some of the new Clarins suncare to use when I was out in the sun.

The all new Clarins High Performance Sun Care range, has 10 new protective formulas with only high level SPF 30 and SPF 50+ protection for face and body, and two new After … [Read more...]

NEW Neom Body Butters

I'm addicted to NEOM's Scent to Sleep Cleansing Balm. It cleanses beautifully, it relaxes me before bed, and I don't feel the need to even use a night cream when I cleanse with it. So, I am hoping the brand's new Magnesium Body Butter is just as good!  Body moisturising is still an issue, so I am trying to incorporate it into my bedtime routine - applying it pretty much in bed, so as to at least give my poor skin moisture once a day! The … [Read more...]

NEW Olverum The Body Oil

Was it last year I shared Olverum Bath Oil with you? It's lovely stuff, a high-end brand, with gorgeous packaging, and I just don't have a bathroom that befits it. But after major renovations over the last three months, the bathroom in our flat will just have to stay as it is for a wee while longer. But that doesn't mean I can't use the lovely stuff to brighten up the shabby showerroom, does it?! Olverum the brand hasn't launched a new … [Read more...]

Winter Body Care

If I have one beauty resolution for the New Year it's to take more care over my body care. I am fastidious with my application of facial skincare, and completely random and hit or miss with my body care. And in the winter, you can't be like that. Dropping temperatures and rising heating temperatures make our skin prone to drying out. So, time to get yourself a good body care product - and I am telling myself this too. One of my all-time … [Read more...]

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...]
