Bedside Beauty Snapshot: Tring, July 2012

This bedside beauty snapshot was taken at Champneys Tring. You’ll see some old favourites and a couple of new things – I’ll make it snappy and link to existing reviews for the products that I’ve mentioned before!

(From left to right. Ish.)

1) Tom Ford Gold Dust Bronzer – used in a video recently, stockist link is underneath the video.

2) Dior Hydralife Tinted Moisturiser – is gorgeous. It will be reviewed separately, but for now know that this has a beautiful texture and a healthy, glowy sheen. I love it. It’s £27.25 including delivery from – I use shade 1.

3) Alpha-H Liquid Gold – read the main review here. I swear by this stuff, just in case you’re a new reader!

4) Estée Lauder Idealist Primer – just thought I’d revisit this primer. I had forgotten what a lovely little product it was. Instantly smoothing, a brilliant base for foundations or tinted moisturisers and it does have some visible effect on pores, though not so much as a dedicated pore-refining primer. £54 for full size, from House of Fraser

5) Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm – LOVE THIS. It’s not cheap, but it’s so, so lovely. Follow with their Deep Cleansing Mask for a simple but highly effective home facial.

6) Givenchy Kohl Liner – I’m on hols and naughtily didn’t finish this post properly, so will have to add link once home!

7) Dr Lewinn’s Renunail

8) Sisley Lip Balm

9) Chanel Limited Edition Nail Polish in Holiday – bright and funky red for the summer hols. £18 from

10) Lancome nude polish – my favourite polish for the whole of this year – the best nude ever! See review and stockist here

11) Lancome Highlighting Blush – ultra pale, but gives the most flattering shimmering highlight wherever it’s brushed. Makes a softer alternative to the cream highlighter “snail trail” that adorns many a cheekbone these days! Not that there’s anything wrong with the cream highlighter (I adore them), they just need to be blended properly. This one is £27.50 with free delivery from Mine is a pale, pale pink and in the image online it looks like a hot pink, but they have the same shade number, so…confused!
