Evolve Organic Beauty NEW Superfood 360 Serum

I love a serum. I don't feel like my beauty routine is complete with just one face product of a morning. As a beauty writer and editor, I am lucky enough to get lots to try - so I don't have one particular serum as a favourite. Some last the distance, others get passed on to family and friends to try if they don't quite suit me, or my skin. I do love Clarins Double Serum, I've just finished a Verso serum which was great, and yesterday I was … [Read more...]

Clinique launch Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly

There are a lot of gels and jelly formulas appearing at the moment, none as big a launch as this new Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly. Dramatically different from the original Dramatically Different Lotion indeed - in that it's a jelly. And not yellow! So, why? That was my first question.  I'm not sure. Perhaps to add a new dimension to the three-step for younger customers? It's an oil-free water jelly, for all skin types. It's BIG on … [Read more...]
