Review: Schwarzkopf Osis Design Mix Hair Styling Range


I am a low maintenance kind of gal – especially when it comes to my hair (I had a lot o it cut off – more about this later). So do I have time for tons of hi-tech styling products? No, not really. I use heat protection if remember, and something in damp hair. Well…I am kind of in love with Schwarzkopf’s Osis hair styling range which is split into 6 products – each pot […]

Whats your beauty annoyance?


Does that title even make sense? Probably not. Anyway I realised what beauty thing annoys me mucho this morning – sifter jars that have sticky erm, stickers that don’t have tabs on them to make it easier to pull them off.  Dude! my nails split easily at the edges!  I have one more – products that swivel up but don’t swivel back down.  Cle De Peau Extra Silky Lipsticks does this as does Nars Multiples […]

Review: Karine Jackson Hair and Beauty Salon


I generally find going to the hairdressers traumatic – too much chatter, weak coffee and hair I totally didn’t want at the end of it. Scary stuff. So my experience with Karine Jackson’s hair salon began well – I planned to visit whilst I was down in London so they sent me a skin allergy test, to see if I turned nasty on contact with PPD (a chemical in hair dye which turns some people […]

Review: Malki Dead Sea Shampoo & Scrub


The search of natural SLS/Paraben free shampoo and conditioner never ends on Cosmetic Candy! I am a big believer is using products that are good for the scalp as well as the hair, mainly because I itch like mad when I come in contact with anything dodgy. Malki Dead Sea Products is one of those ranges you have probably seen before lurking in the corner of Boots. Benefits of the dead sea: For hundreds of […]

Haul: Dolce & Gabbana Make Up


From the moment I saw the ad campaign for Dolce & Gabanna Make Up, I knew I had to get my grubby paws on some. So I waited till my last trip to London before popping into Selfridges to see the range (the only place in the UK you can get it at the moment, and one of only 3 locations in the world you can buy it). The counter was fairly small – not […]

Review: Make Up For Ever HD Foundation


You know sometimes there’s a fad, and you just have to buy into that fad because if you didn’t you’d feel like you were missing something? That’s how I felt about MUFE’s HD Foundation. MUFE is not that easy to get in the UK, although you can buy it at a shop called PAM (which used to be called MAP (make up provisions) but a similar company sued them for having a name that was […]
