Bedside Beauty Snapshot: Paris, May 2012

 These were my most-used products when I went to Paris a couple of weeks ago. I thought that I might do a “bedside beauty” snapshot wherever I go, just for a bit of fun. (And what great fun this is! Right? Wooo!)

Here goes then. Left to right:

1) Pai Echium Eye Cream – read the review here or find it on Pai’s website here. The most amazing eye cream for sensitive eyes, it’s a real travel staple for me.

2) Tom Ford Santal Blush – read my review here. Gorgeous, unusual, and haven’t “bumped into” a fellow wearer yet! http://tidd.ly/c0f09a03

3) Sisley Lip Balm. Great for flights, lipstick base, night-time nurturing: http://tidd.ly/f3de21cb

4) Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm, part of a travel set. A GREAT cleanser and can be used all over the eyes too! Very luxurious. Normally I wouldn’t take it travelling as the pot is heavy, but this little mini version is a godsend! You can see the entire travel kit here:  http://tinyurl.com/c3lk2ck

5) Sisley Eye Mask – see it in my video review here. One of my absolute all-time favourite rescue remedies! Great for jet-lag, hangovers, general tiredness and also puffiness caused by hot weather: http://tidd.ly/be2acf44

6) Klorane Eye Makeup Remover – read my review here. This is a good ‘un! And inexpensive. (£5.15!) Great for tired, sore eyes – it isn’t the most powerful remover in the world, but it does the trick on everything but waterproof mascara. I bloody hate waterproof mascara, though, so it doesn’t matter to me! http://tidd.ly/ad620d61

7) Alpha-H Liquid Gold. Oh, Liquid Gold. I can’t say anymore than the name of this product because I haven’t stopped talking about it for the past year, and I’m scared of boring you all to death! If you want to read my copious reviews and mentions, you can see them by using the search box. The latest post about Liquid Gold (wondrous product of many wonders) is here.


  1. Hey Ruth))) i am 18 and i starting to have small wrinkles under eyes from dehydration and i tried to do everything and it didnt work and i really got interested in Pai Eye cream and i dont know if i can use cause i am 18 is it ok to use at 18???))) Thanks

  2. Hey Ruth))) do you know a good hydrating serum for combination skin???)

    • Just trying the apivita hyaluronic one at the mo on my hols, that’s pretty nice! I’ll review it when back x

  3. Curious: can you pick top three-five favorites in each skincare area? Cleaner, toner, moisturizer, exfoliant, masks…

    Just curious, like I said.

    • When I have a spare few hours – good idea! x

      • Seems like it might be rather difficult to figure out, but I’m starting to start a skin regimen from nothing and really want to know what you’d recommend. I literally own one cleanser and a sample of a moisturiser – I’m looking for guidance, which is why I’ve been frantically asking you a question every other day.

        • It’s not possible for me to really recommend a regime to someone, only because it’s impossible for me to know what would suit you! What skin type do you have, how old are you, what budget do you have are all questions that I’d ask if I had the time to put together suggestions for people individually, but if you answer those to start with I’ll try and give you a hand! Try and have a look through all of the reviews on here too, though, and see what you like the look of! x

  4. Hi Ruth,

    Just wanted to report back to let you know my skin has really settled down. I have a few marks from the horrible spots I got but generally my face is clear (no active breakouts, phew!) I just wanted to check if I am just using no other chemical exfoliants is every other night a good amount to be using liquid gold?

    Thanks again for last week it’s so nice to be able to talk to someone and ask for advice.

    Take care


    • Lucy it sounds like you are doing everything just right! I’m so glad it’s working for you! xxx

  5. Hi Ruth
    Could you use liquid gold and the clinquie anitoxidant mosturizer in your skin care routine . Say you put the clinquie on every two weeks and then inbetween the Liquid gold?

    • Yes, there’s no need to use those separately. There’s nothing really that conflicts with the LG in the Clinique, so you could use the Clinique daily, in the morning, but don’t use the LG more than once every two nights! x
