Along with the Crystal Lip Balms, Clarins has also released three lip glosses in clicky pens for the Summer Instant Sun Light Collection: These three glosses have a SPF 6 and come in Vanilla, Coral and Cinnamon.

Vanilla is a […]

Out of the entire Clarins Instant Sun Light Collection for 2010, these Crystal Lip Balms were the most thing I was most excited about. They’re transparent! (or see through, if you like!)

A few months ago I got my hands on this Naturtint Non Permanent Hair Dye to try out. Regular readers know I have to be careful with what hair dye I use because of my highly sensitive scalp. I have used Naturtint permanent dyes before with success but I didn’t want anything with too much commitment (I knew I was going to the salon a month later). The Naturtint Reflex hair dye is non permanent […]
