Glam Glow Super-Mud: Hollywood Glow

Posted · 23 Comments

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 [...]

The Wei Purifying Face Mask

Posted · 18 Comments

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.

I haven’t had any prior experience with Docteur Renaud products but I was reasonably impressed with his “Lime Purifying Programme”.

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, [...]

REN Clearcalm 3 Anti-Blemish Treatment 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 [...]
