Avon Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro

Posted · 16 Comments

For the last few weeks I have been testing out Avon’s Eye Lift ‘System’, a cream and a gel that promise to lift the eye area.  I kind of wish that it wasn’t in a dippy pot (or that anything came in a pot for that matter) but I do like having the gel and [...]


Five Umbrellas I Like

Posted · 10 Comments

It’s bloody miserable in London today – and once again I am damp from head to foot because my stupid H&M cheapo umbrella is so rubbish. I’m beginning to think that these cheap brollies are a false economy – they blow inside-out and then break after about three uses and because I consider them semi-disposable, [...]

Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation

Posted · 19 Comments

I am extremely excited about Vichy’s teaming up with Dermablend. They have created a full coverage foundation stick and a corrective foundation in a tube to be used to cover even the most severe flaws.

I like the rather funky housing for Bourjois’ Délice de Soleil – the mirror is [...]

Pixi Week Of Makeup Palette

Posted · 6 Comments

How great is this Pixi palette? Such a lovely idea – different makeup combinations for every day of the week. It’s really cute and it’s going straight onto Keep Calm and Shop in the Beauty SOS section as a hangover cure! Why a hangover cure? Because all of the days have at least one thing [...]

A Quick Warning Against Over-Exfoliation!

Posted · 37 Comments

I quickly recorded this video last night because quite a few Youtube viewers had failed to hear me say that Glycolic wasn’t necessarily the best choice of product for hormonal, sensitive teenage skin! So I wanted to clarify that and also point out that you have to be careful not to over-exfoliate. Many people don’t [...]
