Although I haven’t braved Botox, skincare is important to me. I’m always given a little helping hand with a few electrical items. Even my hair relies on the best tools to curl, wave, flick, straighten or tie up…
July’s beauty empties: the products that I’m finishing
I thought it was about time to give you an update on the products I’ve been using until they’re empty! This month there have been some new additions to my beauty cupboard including a body cream, body wash and more.
A makeup artist once suggested I mix two foundations together. After testing a few brands there was one stand out winner, so my shades are no longer one or the other but a combination meaning darker for when I’m tanned and lighter when…
I’m often asked to review new launches or try out products before they’re launched on the market. I only truly love a small proportion of them meaning that there are many products I don’t rate enough to put on the blog. So with the new season upon us, I’ve been trying out a whole load of new skincare pieces. I don’t know about you but my skin is in total transition. Probably from the pregnancy hormones but also from this change in weather and temperature. Some products I’ve loved, some I’ve broken out in rashes with and others I simply just didn’t believe the hype.
I love a good holiday. Last year I was fortunate to travel to Costa Rica, Rome, Las Vegas, Marrakech, Cornwall, and Venice and this year, well I’m currently in Cornwall and planning a little honeymoon (which is proving tricky now that I’m pregnant). Each time I travel, I always think carefully about what to take – particularly if I’m in a country where things aren’t that easy to come by.
The beauty of a holiday is that you’re more relaxed. You’ve more free time to exude on things you really like which for me, results in more time to spend on my beauty regime. I always like to take an indulgent mask away with me, be it for my hair or face and invest that little bit more on new treatments that require a little more time.
When I worked on mags at The Times and The Sun it became a bit of a joke among everyone on my bank of desks just how much I loved a beauty box. Each month I’d receive a box of five high end goodies to try. They were always luxe or full size products – not the type you can usually sample at your designer beauty counter. Are they worth it?
This Spring there are so many new beauty trends and launches. For me, this Spring I’m mixing things up a bit. Staying are my foundations, my bronzers and mascara’s but going are my boring black liners and eyeshadows.
