The Skin Clinic! Any Question Answered…

Posted · 13 Comments

Well I say any question, but in fact the lady answering them might not be that impressed if you ask something like “how do I get the lid off my moisturiser bottle?” Caroline Hirons has been running her Clinic for a while now and I have been watching it with great interest. Caroline has worked in [...]

Please Note: I Am in LA!

Posted · 29 Comments

I’m off to LA on a bit of a business trip, though hopefully a pleasurable one! Please do behave yourselves whilst my back is turned – no stealing from the sweetie jars. I have scheduled all of the posts until next week (like I’d leave you with no posts!) but comment-approval and question-answering may be [...]

Model Skincare Secret: Deep Cleansing Masks

Model Skincare Secret: Deep Cleansing Masks

Posted · 45 Comments

For as long as I’ve been modelling (almost eleven years? Or is it twelve?) I’ve been using clay masks to help draw out impurities and keep my skin clear. I do find that you have to be a little bit organised with clay-based masks; they can be absolute dynamite at bringing all of the skin-crap [...]

Dr Perricone’s Super Green Apple Breakout Solutions

Posted · 16 Comments

 I have had really yucky skin recently. First I was ill, then I was on two weeks’ worth of antibiotics, then the website got hacked and I was supremely stressed. My skin, usually so lovely and well-behaved (apart from a few days every month!) went absolutely mental. I mean, I just didn’t know what it [...]

The Queen’s Perfume

I’m sure that I’ve mentioned this before – perhaps in my bespoke perfumery post – but Floris really are a brand with an amazing heritage, and a trip to their magical [...]

Quick Springtime Makeup – The Silent Movie

Posted · 24 Comments

I made this video last week and thought you might like it. I just filmed myself silently doing my makeup ready for a different video (the Best of Spring Makeup video) and then decided that I quite liked the way it looked. I was going to keep it silent and just add subtitles, but then [...]

Tooth Whitening Things

Posted · 30 Comments

Mr AMR and I have been on a bit of a testing mission recently, looking at all kinds of toothpastes that promise to whiten and brighten. My dental hygienist swears that no toothpaste can actually whiten your teeth, they just remove stains, but every little helps, surely? I hate that overblown, whiter-than-white Hollywood look – I [...]
