On Trial: NEW Olay Regenerist Luminous

Posted · 39 Comments

Ah, the inviting creamy plumpness of a brand new pot of face cream! I plunge into this one with a small sense of trepidation, however, because for one month I am working with Olay to test out the new Regenerist Luminous collection* and I’m not allowed to use any other products. I repeat: any other products.** This [...]

January Beauty Favourites

Posted · 33 Comments

Ah, here we are again. Monthly favourites. Apologies in advance; I have been on a bit of a beauty “hiatus” this month, partly because I spent the first two weeks of it watching The Good Wife and partly because I still haven’t properly sorted out my beauty room. I don’t know where anything is and I [...]

A little feature on Creative Head’s website “Head1st” this week!

There is a proper Christmas Gift Guide on its way to you, but it’s taking an absolute age to film it. Meanwhile, I am writing about a few really stand-out gifts that I have found on my extensive searches and one of those is the Hello Kitty Liberty Box of Treats.

‘Gifts to Split’ at BeautyBay

Posted · 7 Comments

I saw this little feature on BeautyBay the other day and thought that it was well worth a mention. I know the concept of ‘splitting’ value packs and gifts is a pretty obvious one, but it’s not something that you’d usually see a retailer promoting! You could ‘split’ nearly any gift set or value set [...]

Clarins Passion Face Palette

Retraction! Clarins Passion Face Palette

Posted · 4 Comments

ARGH! Retraction, retraction, just so I don’t make a complete tool of myself! In the October Beauty Roundup I talked about the Clarins Passion Face Palette and I used it as a subtle illuminator on my cheekbones and under my brows. This is not an illuminator! After a number of uses, it seems that the [...]
