January Beauty Round-Up

I’ve been very slack with my monthly beauty Round-Ups, sorry! Twitter followers will know that I’ve been in bed for a week (over a week, actually, now) with a bad chest infection, but I slapped on some makeup to film the video below because I thought you might be missing me. (Ha!) Enjoy – product links and a link to my new channel, Model Scrapbook, are below the video pane.

  1. Hi Ruth,

    I’ve just ordered the Heal Gel as I had a c-section a month ago and I am hoping it will help with the scar. Another friend who had surgery also recommended it to me so I will let you know how I get on!



  2. Hi ruth i’m in love with your blog! Just wondering how you store all your beauty products and makeup? I know you must have loads and loads…it’d be great to see/hear how u arrange it all? thanks! x

  3. Just caught up with this video, hope you are feeling better today xx I’ve just ordered the Avon cashmere touch foundation plus two others this afternoon, (need to try snd economise a little bit)how strange lol! Glad to see you like it, your skin looked superb om camera which shade are you using? I’ve ordered ivory but it did look abit dark for a ivory shade online, my skins abit fairer than yours, anyway it was £8! Bargin!
    Ruth also have you tried steam cream? I’ve just discovered it OMG, it’s to die for!

  4. Hi Ruth. I just wanted to ask whether you recommend cleansing morning and evening? I currently do and use Oskia Perfect Cleanser (I also love Liz Earle Clease and Polish). This seems to be working okay for me but I wonder if i’m abit addicted to cleansig (!) Is it enough just to use a cleansing water in the morning and if so could you recommend one? Thanks :-)

    • @Naomi cleansing twice a day is absolutely OK! I think good cleansing is almost more important than moisturising – if you’re using a good cleanser it won’t strip the skin and leave it vulnerable, so there’s no reason not to cleanse twice a day! Type in Bioderma into the search box and have a look at my Micellar water post! x

  5. The Dolphin square spa use and stock the full range.
    I went for a massage there with my fiance on your recommendation and we both loved it. x

  6. Hi Ruth
    Have you tried any of the La Sultane de Saba face products? Was thinking of trying their Rose Argan face oil? I like to check with you before I buy! :)

  7. @ewa just a thought: it might be a good idea to see if you have any allergies? I have hayfever and take an overthecounter antihistamine in the summer, turns out that I also have a dust allergy which was making my eyes red (not just in the summer) so I try to manage that and my eyes look much better.
