Ahava Mineral Botanic Velvet Cream Wash

Posted · 2 Comments

Oh! Is what I said, when I used this body wash last night. I would have said more, but I’m not in the habit of talking aloud to myself (much) and so I thought it instead. Why, I thought, this is a splendid little shower gel! Not really a shower gel, of course, because it’s creamy, and [...]

Home Spa How-To: Cleansing!

 Seriously: check me out in my fluffy spa robe! Do I not look the absolute shizzle? I’m pleased as punch with myself! Hahaha… I had a lovely time at Champneys Tring the other week, filming some videos that I had wanted to do for ages on at-home spa treatments. This is the first video and (with the [...]

  Google has decided to remove the “GFC” function from all non-blogger sites. As I’m completely self-hosted, that means A Model Recommends will no longer have GFC, so approximately two thousand readers will lose their daily update. BOOO, Google! May your summer be plagued with wasps and…bees! OK, some options for you if you currently subscribe by [...]

Heal Gel: Advanced Skin Rescue Formula

Posted · 7 Comments

My latest winter-skin hero: Heal Gel. Created by five plastic surgeons, it’s designed to help repair post-surgery skin (read chapped, inflamed, generally sore) as well as treat a whole range of different skin conditions. If you’re looking for a multi-purpose skin ‘first aid’ gel then this one is brilliant. So far I have used it on [...]

Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish, An Update

Posted · 11 Comments

I often get asked about what my “all-time favourites” are, and I suppose that at some point I should really make a video about it. The problem is that there are always new readers coming through (hello new readers!) who haven’t seen previous posts, and so every now and again I have to go over [...]


Lavera Rose Garden Bath Oil

Posted · Add Comment

I have just finished my Lavera Rose Garden Bath Oil and can say, categorically, that it’s brilliant. You need very little to scent a large bath and the 100ml bottle costs just £8.95! A definite, definite re-purchase, this one. It may not look like the flashest bottle in the bathroom, but it absolutely does the trick when you’re looking [...]

Klorane Cornflower Eye Makeup Remover

Posted · 4 Comments

I just love this Klorane makeup remover. They discontinued it last year, or so I thought, but here it is again and thank GOD for that! It’s so soothing and gentle and it does a pretty nice job of getting off all but the most stubborn eye makeup. I squirt some onto damp cotton wool [...]

New Dior Campaign Models!

Posted · 3 Comments

I jest, of course; ’tis only me. And beautiful Charlotte from the Dior press office. I’d just like to make it clear, though, that we are both available to shoot the next campaign if we’re needed. I mean, I’ll have to check my schedule and everything, but if I’m not at uni or trying to train the [...]
