Selexir Peace Balm for Extremely Dry Skin

Posted · 92 Comments

I don’t have eczema and I have never suffered with it, but when I heard the story behind new treatment product Selexir I was really quite moved. (I’ve mentioned my predisposition for crying, have I not?) I was sat face to face with Elena and Mirella, the founders of the brand, and Elena was describing how she [...]

Pomegranate & Pumpkin Seed Stretch Mark System

Pai’s Natural & Gentle Stretch Mark System

Posted · 8 Comments

I have a few, very faint, stretch-marks across my hips and I’m guessing that I’ve had these since my teens. They’re only apparent when my skin is more tanned, so they don’t really bother me too much, but I know that stretch-marks are a huge issue for women and younger girls. People get them regardless of whether [...]

The Monday Miaow

Browsing ASOS this weekend (I spend a lot of time browsing ASOS. It’s an illness) I spotted this gorgeous little kitten cosmetics bag by Paul & Joe. It’s actually free with their hand cream, which makes it even more gorgeous. I need it in my life! The pot of hand cream is very dressing table-worthy, [...]

Top to Toe Tutorial: Animal Print

Posted · 9 Comments

Another Top-to-Toe Tutorial – makeup, hair, clothes, nails, shoes. The last one (cashmere and the sultry eye) was a roaring success so I’ve decided to keep this format. For those who were worrying that this might replace shorter, makeup-only vids, fear not. I’m far too lazy to film Top-to-Toes every week – it takes an [...]

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) First dibs on the Cult Beauty sale for A Model Recommends readers. Up to 40% off! It doesn’t officially open until 10am, so all the best bits will still be there! I can’t see in advance what’s [...]

October Beauty Favourites

Hop into my Shower!

Posted · 8 Comments

I had a lot of fun filming this video. I’ve decided to do my monthly favourites videos from the bathroom from now on – either in the shower or in the bath. Perhaps when I travel I’ll film them from other baths – that could be interesting! Anyway, this is a lazy-ish post because I’m not feeling [...]

Thalgo Hyaluronic Eye Patches Review

Posted · 8 Comments

Another month another eye patch. You know how I love my eye patches! I get really hot, uncomfortable eyes when I work at the computer all day and so I find them invaluable – so long as they’re the type that sit underneath the eye and don’t completely cover it! (I do have more than [...]
