October Skincare and Beauty Favourites

Posted · 10 Comments

Is it me, or does the last beauty favourites video only seem as though it went up about a week ago? I feel as though I’ve been sucked into some kind of space/time vortex! Oh well. Some nice new discoveries, this month, including the excellent exfoliating facial pads from First Aid Beauty (thanks for that tip-off, Caroline [...]

The Miracle Cleanser by Aurelia

Posted · 8 Comments

A lovely cleanser to add to your wishlist; Aurelia’s Miracle Cleanser. I am new to Aurelia, and I’m afraid I’ll have to do a bit of swotting up before I can even begin to tell you about “probiotic skincare” or “bioorganic ingredients”, but this cleanser impressed me immediately. It’s creamy and rich but still easy to [...]

Sunday Riley Skincare: Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Posted · 20 Comments

Apologies in advance: this post may make you want things. Because they are pretty bloody good, the products from Sunday Riley.

Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish, An Update

Posted · 11 Comments

The problem is that there are always new readers coming through (hello new readers!) who haven’t seen previous posts, and so every now and again I have to go over [...]

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

Posted · 23 Comments

Out of all my beauty products, Liz Earle’s Cleanse and Polish is the one that I use most often. There. I said it. Now: I can sense mutiny in the ranks – there are screams of “WHAT? She tells us this now after six months of loyal readership? What the devil is the girl playing [...]

Caudalie Cleansing Water

Posted · 10 Comments

General opinion on cleansing waters is divided. There are those that love them, and those that think spending money on ‘what comes out of the tap’ is completely idiotic. Personally, I love them. They are the ultimate in lazy cleansing – I suppose the only improvement would be if you could ‘spray’ them on and [...]
