Boots launch No7 Face Study online portal

According to new research from Boots, and their new No7 portal, The No7 Face Study, nine out of ten (87 per cent) of British women admit to being confused by their skincare choices. That is a lot of women to be admitting to not really knowing what they are using, and what they should be using. Over half (57 per cent) admit to feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information that is available on skincare products. That doesn't surprise me. The … [Read more...]

Boots No7 launch Neck Serum

I do have an issue with my neck. Being in my mid-40s, I'm more and more aware of that part of me ageing.

So, I am more than happy to be trialling the latest No7 product  - Restore and Renew Face & Neck Multi Action Serum. Scientists are saying it can take ten years off you - no mean feat. But how? Dr Mike Bell, scientific skincare … [Read more...]

NEW Boots No7 Airbrush Away Sheer Foundation and Powder

Boots No7 has added two new products to their Airbrush Away collection - which I have to admit I didn't even know existed!

Colour Your Way with Boots No7

Today sees the launch of a new colour cosmetics campaign from Boots No7, using  contradictory statements about colour and feeling -think 'serious pink' and 'quiet red'. No7 say it's inspired by the belief that women use cosmetics to bring out how they're feeling, not to cover themselves up. No7 want us to feel great about beauty and ourselves - they don't want us to feel bound by accepted colour associations, or pressured by latest trends. … [Read more...]

First up, Jo Malone's AMAZING Advent Calendar, which launches on November 10th, and is £250! Wow. It does, however, contain 24 fantastic Jo Malone goodies, from refined Colognes to rich and nourishing Body Crèmes, perfect for … [Read more...]

1970s glamour with Boots No7

The 1970s is a massive fashion trend this season (and no, we don't mean flares and afro wigs!). We're talking denim skirts, wedge heels, luxurious palazzo pants in silk fabrics, butter soft leathers, low cut blouses, long, luscious locks, and lots and lots of gloss! Think Jerry Hall, Marie Helvin and Bianca Jagger... That's exactly what No7 Creative Consultant Lisa Eldridge did when she created the latest No7 Limited Edition makeup collection … [Read more...]
