It’s a well-known fact amongst those close to me, that no one touches my face. That is unless you’re a facialist. For me getting a great facial is like a great dinner out. You look forward to it, you’ve already browsed the menu in advance, the service is excellent, and you walk away feeling like the money you paid was well worth it. Not to … Continue reading Review: Teresa Tarmey Facial
More than a minute, it’s been 9 months. So with the ‘back to school’ air that comes around every September, I’ve set myself a goal of 12 blog posts before the end of the year. I was trying to think of what would be the best thing to write about to signal the end of my blogging gestation period, and the most obvious thing was … Continue reading It’s been a minute
Using acids on the face to re-texturise and exfoliate have been around for a while so it was only a matter of time before these ingredients started to show up in body products. I’ve been using the Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion since Christmas- it was actually on my Secret Santa List as I wasn’t prepared to spend over £20 on a body product– and have … Continue reading Review: Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion
I’m pretty open about the struggles I’ve had with my skin. Particularly when I got into my early twenties at university. This was really when things were at their worst. I took antibiotics for a long period of time, which did their thing but I was never ‘out of the woods’. Working part-time in a beauty product shop, I of course spent a lot of … Continue reading Why I gave up dairy
March is a long month, however unlike January it comes with it the prospect of warmer weather, blossoming trees and new life. Despite my epic blogging fail in February, here have been my favourites from the last month: Beauty Pie Every Day Great Skin Foundation: I bought this as it bore an uncanny resemblance to both Bobbi Brown and Giorgio Armani foundations, except this cost … Continue reading March Favourites
A super quick post today but wanted to share some interesting articles I’ve come across either directly or have been shared with me. WWD.com L’Oreal and La-Roche Posay have launched a wearable skin pH tracker designed to monitor your skin and therefore customise the recommendation of products. Scientists and dermatologists see a direct link with skin pH and skin health and therefore being able to … Continue reading In the news
When I was about 10 I used to read ‘Girl Talk‘. Filled to the brim with news about the Spice Girls, puppies and came with a ‘free, fabulous choker!‘. At 15 it was ‘CosmoGirl‘ telling me the magic formula of how to get a perfect Californian tan (how irresponsible) and ‘zap that zit‘. From 18 onwards it was all about Glamour & Elle and at … Continue reading Do beauty magazines exist?
I read this quote today from Tamara Hill-Norton, founder of active lifestyle brand Sweaty Betty. Time and time again, it’s easy to forget to take a minute (or sixty) for yourself whether you have a demanding job, active social life, children, etc. December is a great example of this, when before you know it, Christmas parties are over, you shopped like a maniac and went back … Continue reading ‘Self-care is not selfish’
About a week and a half ago as I sat in a hotel room on a work trip, my colleague turned to me and said ‘products are really your passion, aren’t they?’. It’s worth noting that as she asked me this I was sitting there with a sheet mask plastered to my face. She isn’t wrong, nor is this the first time someone has commented … Continue reading Why start a blog now?
