Amazing Aftersuns!

the best aftersun

I tried out some great aftersuns on holiday – take note if you’re off on your holidays or you’ve already been but want to prolong your sunkissed colour! I had loads with me (I made poor Mr AMR lug half of them in his bag!) but here are my favourite five. 1) Thalgo Hydra Soothing Lotion, £25.50 from is … Read More

Elemental Herbology Oil Control Starter Kit

Elemental Herbology Oil Control Starter Kit

This is a great way to try a few Elemental Herbology products; a starter kit with cleanser, moisturiser, mask and peel. Out of the four products I have already tried three as full sizes and they are all amazing. The Light Moisture Milk was reviewed not so long ago (read the review here) and I am going to review the … Read More

Sh*tfit of the Day: Foot Files

how to use a ped egg

Sh*tfit of the day is a bit like the commonly seen “Outfit of the Day”, except that it’s not about outfits and there’s much more sh*tfitting. Disclaimer: this is not intended to be a relaxing read. Does anybody have any luck with foot files? What is the point of foot files? Unless you have a whole day to spare, they … Read More

Christopher Kane for TIGI Headband

Christopher Kane for TIGI Headband

I love this faux-leather headband from TIGI! I’m partial to a headband anyway, but this one’s tougher and edgier than most. A headband with a twist. The knotted design is by Christopher Kane (the British Fashion Council’s Designer of the Year) and it is available at selected TIGI Catwalk salons when you purchase two products. You can find the nearest Catwalk … Read More

The No7 Amazing Foundation Match!

No7 foundation match device

Today Boots No7 launch their Foundation Match Made Service. I know that many of you will be groaning with horror at the idea of yet another overbearing sales assistant applying stripes of different foundations to your jawline, but stay with me on this one. The match service from No7 doesn’t rely on the (sometimes dubious) eye of the sales assistant, … Read More

Riemann P20 Once a Day SPF Review

I was more than a little sceptical about Riemann’s P20 and their claims that it was water resistant even after repeated swimming sessions. Riemann say that P20 offers up to 10 hours protection from the sun’s rays, and I quote, “even after frequent swimming”. The FAQs on their website also say that the product is effective after showering, so long … Read More

My H&M Cat Vest

Ruth Crilly

The video below shows a very quick “outfit of the day” typed thing. It’s a bit silly, really, but it does show you how I wore my cat vest on hols! The cat vest was £7.99 from H&M, if you root about there might be a few left.. I wore my Hanky Panky bandeau underneath, which was perhaps a mistake … Read More

Dior Addict Lipstick: Wild!

ruth crilly model lipstick dior

I couldn’t look less wild here, could I? It’s astounding. I look a bit like one of those comedy secretary virgins in the movies – the one who always gets the guy at the end because it turns out that underneath the staid exterior is a vixen clawing to get out! Or something. Note the messy tendrils of hair, the … Read More

Natural Everyday Makeup On A Budget

ruth crilly model recommends

It’s been a long while since I did a budget video. I was inspired to make this one because I have been judging products for the Zest Beauty Awards and there were some absolute gems from the high-street and budget brands. This is the first of two videos – the next one will cover haircare, skincare and bodycare. Quite a few of … Read More

L’Oreal Telescopic False Lash Mascara

L'Oreal Telescopic False Lash Mascara

It would be unfair of me not to give this highly affordable little mascara its own post. I have used it so much in recent videos and so I feel a bit like I’m going over old ground, but if I don’t give L’Oreal’s False Lash Telescopic Mascara a dedicated post then it won’t come up when people search for … Read More
