Wednesday Giveaway: Boots Perfect & Protect!

I was about to write Tuesday Giveaway, then I realized it’s already Wednesday! Happy April Fools Day! This weeks giveaway is Boots Protect and Protect Serum. This stuff caused a RIOT when a BBC show called Horizon picked it out as one of the anti ageing serums that had visible results. After the BBC2 science series Horizon’s March 27 programme investigated the increasingly outrageous claims on the jars of the elite cosmetics houses, its conclusion […]

Chanel is evil: Unexpected Haul

img-19860000.jpg

You can’t beat a bit of Chanel. I started collecting the brand, tentatively when I was about 19, and it still makes me feel special when I use it. I made a slight haulage at my local Chanel Counter: It’s all about the base baby. I had a sachet of Matt Lumiere foundation and loved how it looked and how long it lasted. When I got on the counter the SA convinced me Pro Lumiere […]

Review: Remington Spin Curl Hairdryer

result from the back

Ok, it’s taken a while but I have finally got this review up (and video!). I first spied the Remington Spin Curl Hairdryer in a corner of Boots and was horrified by the scary attachment-blowy type thing. Then, hearing lots of postive comments on my post about it I had to try it out. The spin curl has an attachment that curls the hair whilst it dries. Basically. The curls are not ringlets or anything […]

Dr Nick Lowe Double Duty Hand Cream Review

UPDATE: Boyf has finished the Dr Nick Lowe hand cream and is insisting I go out and buy another one for him, cos since he’s started using other creams as a substitute, his hands have flared up again. He feels that the Dr Nick Lowe kept his Psoriasis under control and was soothing at the same time. He doesn’t really like anything, this that’s quite a recommendation! I’ve been taking more notice of Dr Nick […]

April, Yay!

It’s April soon! The clocks went back yesterday and we have more hours of sunlight – hurrah! The sun peeped out to say hello for a while and I have dug out the SPF and some sunglasses to keep the pesky UV away. April will be Base special month!  Each week, there will be a focus on a particular type of products; Primers, Eye Primers, Powder Foundations and finally Foundations.  There will also be the […]

RMK New Powder Foundation

I’ve had this compact for a little while now, and it’s taken me quite a bit to get it together. But here it is! RMK’s new powder foundation base in 104L: I am a big fan of RMK base products. For me, RMK, Chanel, Armani (face fabric foundation) make the best base products, and my new dabble in Illamaqua is also going very well. Did I tell you how badly I want Chanel’s Mat Lumiere […]

Should kids be allowed to wear make up?

should-we-let-our-three-year-old-girl-wear-make-up-mail-online.jpg

I was reading that wealth of unbiased reporting known as the Daily Mail Newspaper (I read it when I need to be incensed – like before returning an item to a shop, and also for the comments. Daily Mail readers really love to comment) when I spotted an debate between two parents over whether their young daughter, aged 3 should be allowed to wear make up. Introduction:
