A few months ago I had a bit of a fad for Lavender. Truth is, I’ve always disliked Lavender, then people kept telling me how it would be good for my sensitive skin, and how relaxing it was…so I bought a number of products scented by the purple flower. Jill Stuart’s Fruit & Aroma Mist Moisture is one of the items I indulged in. I have a ton of face mists and really, do I […]

Hello Anna Sui! I remember when Anna Sui was sold in Boots the chemist. Unfortunately it was ignored, and as a result it was banished from British shores. The range can now be purchased online and the newest Anna Sui releases are delicious – gorgeously packaged, sweet smelling, pretty. I purchased two Face Accent Colors a while ago. They aren’t called ‘blushers’ you philistine – they’re ‘face colours’ presumably because they do more then make […]

Toner is one of those skincare products I actually pay little attention to, but I actually have a few favourites that I alternate (such as Elemis Lavender and Eborian Herbal Moisture Lotion). I prefer something non sticky and it absolutely has to be ok for my sensitive skin type. I spotted Etude House’s Pure Joy Calming Toner on eBay. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what ingredients are in my Asian beauty products […]
I keep dabbling with Asian hair care and styling products, and I have to say overall I am impressed. Most of the Korean and Japanese hair care I have tried so far tends to be quite light finish – in other words, no crunchies, and no flakies. I bought this Etude House Moist Hair Mist because I am suitably frizzy and dry around the barnet area. I figured this could be one of those top […]
The B&C Labs Tsururi range focuses on blackhead and pore care. They have some brilliant products like the Charcoal Soap (which I will do a tutorial on at some point) and a blackhead cleanser (which I sell on Cosmetic Candy Shop!). I purchased one of their newest releases, Tsururi Ghassoul and Andes Salt Scrub Paste. This product promises to clear the pores, remove dirt and leave you with bright skin. The paste, scrub, face wash […]
I have been testing so many facial oils lately – they seem to be the new hot thing – and I have to say I am a generally a fan. I actually picked up this Kosmea Rose Hip Oil as a free sample and cracked it open to use when I wanted to do a light facial massage before bedtime. I’ve noticed there are a lot of products around at the moment that contain Rose […]
A few days ago I mentioned that I had been forced to do my cousin’s prom make up – so in the end she had her hair done at a hairdressers called Adrian Wilde. It took about 10 minutes but cost a fortune and personally I felt the finish could’ve been smoother, and her hair was almost grey from the sheer amount of hairspray used. Surely grips, not an entire 500ml can of hairspray is […]
Watching The Apprentice and Four Rooms (LOVE!) has made me question my own negotiating skills and ability to spot a bargain. We all watch the contestants thinking they’re plebs, but when you’re actually put into a highly stressful situation, maybe it’s not always that easy… Having said that I’ve come to realise I love a bargain and/or special offer! There’s a part of me that is hugely British and hates trying to get ‘a deal’ […]
