New Night Creams from Filorga and Caudalie

Night time is the best time for beauty products to work their magic - if you are any sort of beauty geek, you will know this. So, a night cream is a vitally important part of any skincare routine. I keep mine by my bedside, so I never forget to apply, and I alternate creams with glycolic based liquids, the odd face mask, and serums, and eye treatments. I enjoy this bedtime beauty routine. So I have been delighted to try two new night products … [Read more...]

REN Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream

I think we've determined now that Vitamin C is one of those beauty ingredients that works. It's something that isn't going anywhere, and if you aren't using a product with Vitamin C in it, why not?! The latest to land on my desk is the REN Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream. Vitamin C as an ingredient helps even the skintone by reducing and preventing hyperpigmentation, as well as acting as an antioxidant, reducing skin inflammation, and helping … [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...]

How bright and beautiful a colour yellow is, and I defy you to not be cheered up just looking at this sunny lot! 1.This gorgeous yellow nail polish from Chanel, is Giallo Napoli from last year's Spring Collection, which I blogged about when Chanel hadn't removed us from their … [Read more...]

Shiseido NEW Benefiance Moisturiser

Shiseido has launched a new range of three moisturisers – Benefiance. It’s been a long time since I have used any Shiseido skincare, and I have yet to try this, but one of the brand’s foundations – the Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation is worth every penny of the £35 and more. I have never had as many comments about my ‘glowing skin’ as when I was wearing this. So, if the foundation is that good, I am keen to see what the skincare … [Read more...]

Pesky Tech Neck strikes again!

I've written about this thing 'Tech Neck' before - it's something of an obsession of mine just now. I'm noticing some lines and crepiness in that area, and am trying anything I can. So, I was pleased to receive the MGC Derma CBD Neck & Décolleté Recovery Serum last week. Now, neck issues were once the domain of the ahem, more mature among us, but no more. All that phone usage is damaging your neck tissue - all that bending down to look at … [Read more...]

Vegan beauty in Veganuary

Veganuary! It's everywhere - even here! Yes, there are loads of vegan beauty products out there. Probably loads more than you'd even think - but why would beauty products have loads of animal product in them?! Anyway, I've been bombared with Veganuary press releases since, ooh, way back in October, maybe. So, I've picked a few vegan beauty products to share with you here. Nourish London's KALE 3D Cleanse (£25, nourishlondon.com) deeply … [Read more...]

Get Happy Ahead of Blue Monday – 5pm Deals!

Next Monday - January 21 -  is Blue Monday - the day we are all meant to feel absolutely awful and unable to cope with the hell that is January. It's all pseudoscience, and was first created by a travel company in a press release, using an actual equation, worked out by many factors, including weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels, and the feeling of a need to … [Read more...]
