Glam Glow Super-Mud: Hollywood Glow

a model recommends beauty blog review

I’ve photographed this clay face mask “warts ‘n all” – it’s a black, messy little number in the most pristine, glamorous-looking pot. Packaging-wise, it’s the equivalent of letting your labrador run through a swamp before settling down on your white leather Ligne Roset couch. Though the Glamglow pot can easily be wiped clean, I suppose, whereas the couch would require some serious ... Read More »

The Wei Purifying Face Mask

WEI Golden Root Purifying Face Mask Review

This set of eight masks from WEI is utterly, utterly charming. WEI is a skincare brand that draws on the theories of traditional Chinese medicine to bring balance to the skin and transform its appearance, and I have had quite a few readers asking me to try out their products. First on the agenda: the Golden Root Purifying Face Mask. Don’t ... Read More »

Docteur Renaud Cosmekit

Docteur Renaud Cosmekit

I haven’t had any prior experience with Docteur Renaud products but I was reasonably impressed with his “Lime Purifying Programme”. It’s a one-use kit containing a scrub, clay mask and mattifying serum and it promises to purify the skin and even out the complexion in just twenty minutes.

Model Skincare Secret: Deep Cleansing Masks

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.

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask

  I was really very impressed with Liz Earle’s Deep Cleansing Mask when I gave it a couple of tries last week. Despite the fact that I think it smells a little bit like black olive tapenade, I like it a lot. It did an excellent job of banishing oil and balancing out the skin, leaving it feeling toned but ...

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask

Jeez Lousie – this mask really does do what it says it’s going to do, and more; I have used it twice now and both times it has surprised me with it’s sheer effectiveness. These Omorovicza people don’t mess about, I’m telling you – using this mask is like sending your face for a full-on, no-joke facial. To quote Cult ... Read More »

REN Clearcalm 3 Anti-Blemish Treatment Mask

REN Clearcalm mask

It’s that time of the month again. (“What, the middle?”) No, dear friends, it’s that time of the month, which means that I will walk into at least three doors today, cry when the kettle doesn’t boil fast enough and quite possibly, kill somebody. But never mind that – what about my skin? Yes, it’s oil central again. There’s more ... Read More »
