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...]

The result of the refurbishment was an uber slick and stylish spa, with treatment and relaxation rooms decorated in natural earth tones with low lights, candles and shimmer bead curtains. It looked … [Read more...]

Lulu's Time Bomb range is massively popular on QVC. The Scottish singing superstar is the brand ambassador for the range, and it's been created from her own formulas.

Clip on veneers are the new thing – and you can get them in Glasgow

Would you love perfect teeth but don't want to commit to veneers? You may want to consider clip on veneers. They are massively rising in popularity and are as easy (actually, easier) than putting on false eyelashes.

Brows by Benefit and YSL

I have quite a brow history, it has to be said, and I have had long spells where they have been neglected. Recently I have been flitting between the Chamomile Sanctuary Spa in Edinburgh, where they are lovingly threaded, and Benefit, where they are waxed and shaped. I love threading, but I also enjoy the Benefit Brow Bar experience, and they are kind enough to offer me complimentary brows. My recent experience at the Debenhams BrowBar in … [Read more...]

Marc Jacobs Beauty

Not being a big designer fan, I think I sort of missed the launch of Marc Jacobs Beauty into the UK. Now I have caught up on it, and wow - I love it. It's very sleek, very chic, and not really me, but the products are great. I particularly love the new for Spring 2017, Matte Highliner Gel Crayons. This lovely person wearing them is Marc Jacobs Beauty's new face, Kaia Gerber. How beautiful is she? Recognise her? Yep, she's Cindy Crawford's … [Read more...]
