Jergens – Not made by Germans

One statement piece in your beauty wardrobe should always be a really good, hydrating and deliciously smelling moisturiser. I slap this stuff on religiously before bed every night because I’m a delicate soul and my skin needs a lot of…

Bathtime with Lulu & Boo

That sounds like a children’s programme doesn’t it? Well it’s not… it’s actually a description of my evening with a couple of products from organic brand Lulu & Boo. I’ve been chatting away to them on twitter for a while…

Good Associates

Baths have become my guilty pleasure. I went through a stage of not having had one for about four years (no jokes here please about smelling) but now they’ve become a weekly treat. I don’t like bubble bath (the bubbles get…

Lovely Lather

Soap. The very word makes my epidermis run away and hide in a corner. If you want to dry your skin out and make you look like a Victorian street urchin then this baby can hook you up, no problem.…

Picking Blackberries

I’m fully ready for Autumn. My Summer clothes are practically packed away, my boots are out and I’ve mentally wiped the sunny season from my mind. The beauty industry is ready for Autumn too it seems, with new collections launching…

Top Ten Countdown

Having worked in the beauty industry for my entire career I’ve marketed a lot of gumph, but also a lot of fantastic products. It’s so hard to know what to trust, what to buy and what to not waste your…

Tasty Tan

If you ask people what their biggest beauty disaster has ever been, I guarantee you about 75% will say something to do with fake tan. Whether it’s  going orange, dying hands, streaky legs or generally just looking like you’ve been…

Rock n Roll

This week I has my first spray tan in nearly five years, (another post to follow on that!) so while getting in a relaxed mood ready to strip down to a pair of delightful paper knickers, I was able to…

Sea Air

You all must know by now that my new favourite brand is L’Occitane. Everything they make seems to give me goosepimples and want to rush home to have a shower/slap on some moisturiser/clean my face! Imagine my excitement when I…
