Emma Hardie Skincare Celebrates 10 Years

Emma Hardie launched her eponymous beauty best-loved decade ago -  and to celebrate has launched a special edition of her launch product - the Moringa Cleansing Balm. The London facialist burst on to the beauty scene 10 years ago this September, and  I wrote about the brand on my now-defunct blog, Beauty Bombshells, in April 2010. I used the Moringa Balm religiously until around 2015, and her products are still some of my absolute personal … [Read more...]

Crabtree & Evelyn Announce New Brand Identity

Crabtree & Evelyn has announced a new brand identity, more in keeping with the ethos of its founder, wanderlust and nature enthusiast, Cyrus Harvey - and one that is aimed at bringing it right into the 21st Century! The brand is obviously looking to move away from an old lady gift set image,  to one that resonates with the younger generations. Let's be honest, no-one ever has really thought Crabtree & Evelyn is cool, have they?!  It's … [Read more...]

Specific Suncare

If you are off on holiday soon, then don't forget your sunscreen! It's one of the most important things you can pack, so make room in your luggage for at least a couple of bottles of suncare to suit you. And use something different on the face to the body - you wouldn't put your regular body lotion on your face, would you? So don't use your body sunscreen there either. There are SO many types of sunscreen on the market, and there are … [Read more...]

Facial Suncare

If you are off on holiday soon, then don’t forget your sunscreen! It’s one of the most important things you can pack, so make room in your luggage for at least a couple of bottles of sun care to suit you. I've popped another post on here looking at new, innovative, specific sunscreens, and one that covers mists and oils, and general body sunscreens. But this one is super-important - facial suncare. Why would you use the best moisturiser on … [Read more...]

Alpha-H launch Clear Skin Tonic

I love a beauty launch that is something new, and innovative. Alpha-H rarely lets me down, and the Australian brand has come up trumps once again with this new Clear Skin Tonic. Acids are great for the skin - we know this. They are excellent exfoliants and are brilliant in the pursuit of glowing skin. And we all want that glow! Water-soluble AHAs are ideal for skins where the natural desquamation - that's the shedding of the skin naturally - … [Read more...]

Rose Beauty

The other week I wrote about the new Jo Loves Rose Petal fragrance, and it got me thinking about how much I love rose. So I thought I'd have a little call-put for some other rose scented/coloured/themed/inspired beauty products, and share what I found. Apparently, Holly Willoughby likes the Korres Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Bi-Phase Booster Serum (£46, lookfantastic.com) - a powerful serum which helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots, … [Read more...]

Cactus Beauty

If you don't have at least one cactus, or something cacti-themed in your house in 2019, then who are you?! The ultimate in hipster houseplants, the humble cactus is super-cute, easy to look after, and there are SO many different kinds. But do you have any cacti-based beauty products in your collection? I did a little bit of research and found a few products that you might want to have a look - and the crocheted cacti they are snapped with, are … [Read more...]
