Because smelling like a mango is sexy: Skinfood Mango Soft Cream Hair Wax Review

Skinfood-Mango-Soft-Cream-Wax-.jpg

My favourite fruit in the whole world (should I ever be hospitalised and you wish to send me a fruit basket) is Mango. The mango is glorious – no fruit is like it.  Stuff your apples and grapes – the mango does it for me. Naturally I had to purchase this hair wax from Skinfood; I have tried their Olive Hair Oil and Lychee spray which were both good.  The Mango Soft Cream Wax smells […]

The best mini hair straighteners? The Cloud Nine Micro Iron Review

Cloud-Nine-Micro-Iron-Mini-Hair-Straighteners.jpg

I have an obsession with all things mini (apart from food portions) and all things portable! Is it any surprise that I wanted…needed some really really good mini hair straighteners?  I refuse to carry big hair tools around with me when I travel and always have a twinge of regret when I look like a scarecrow on holiday. The thing is I have accumulated many over the years (I have this weird obsession with electrical […]

Origins Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Pads and Blemish Treatment Gel Review

origins-spot-remover-.jpg

Origins released a newer updated blemish range a few months ago and since I still get zitty, I gave two of the products a whirl. They are the treatment gel and the blemish treatment pads.  Another reason I wanted to try these is because I scar easily and get patches of pigmentation where I have once had a spot or bite or scratch. Poor, delicate skin. When it comes to spot treatment I like it […]

Benefit Ooh La Lift Instant Under Eye Brightening Boost Review

Benefit-Ooh-La-Lift-Concealer-1.jpg

Benefit has some classic make up products – I mean, so classic they’re ingrained into our beauty brains; Benetint….Hoola…Bad Gal etc.  Whilst their products don’t always for work me, there’s no doubting that they are highly innovative, always creative and lead where other brands end up copying (the product and the packaging). Wow, that sounds like an Oscar speech!  But to be honest I am just feeling nostalgic, as I have a Benefit Ooh La […]

Super Handy Highlighter! Kerren Multi Highlighter Stick Review

Kerren-Multi-HIghlighter-1.jpg

Kerren is a Korean make up brand I just recently discovered…it’s odd when you make a new brand discovery…it’s like being let in to a secret… The range that I saw looked relatively interesting, although the packaging is nothing special. They seem to make a lot of base products like powder and foundation – I tend to keep away from Korean base items as they are too light for me. I did buy this Multi […]

Wake up sleepy head! Four White Instant Eye Brighteners for your…er, eyes!

Eye-brightening-make-up-for-tired-eyes-white-eye-make-up-.jpg

Tired? I know the feeling to week. I average 4 hours sleep a night, sometimes 5, sometimes 3. Don’t worry, one day I will wake up at 1pm every day, watch day time television….until that day… One must try and look less like a zombie than usual.  I’ve found 4 useful, multi use, brightening products that can be used on the eyes, cheeks (some of them) and if you really must, the lips! Here are […]

Would you shave your eyebrows? National / Panasonic Eyebrow Trimmer Review

National-Panasonic-eyebrow-shaver-1.jpg

People are brow obsessed these days, right? Plucking, threading, brushing, trimming, tweezing…wait, that’s the same as plucking. Oh and shaving. Do you do it? Do you have your brows?! Back in the olden days, when I first realised I had big brows (teenage years of course) I found tweezing way to painful, so I shaved it with a super cheap BIC razor.  The result was horrible, red rashes everywhere – urgh. Then later I used […]

The Perfume Course at The Cotswold Perfumery for people who like…Fragrances!

The-Cotswold-Perfumery-.jpg

A few weeks ago I was supposed to attend a Perfumery lesson at The Cotswold Pefumery.  I was really looking forward to it; I’m no perfume connoisseur but I do love a bit of DIY – unfortunately Mr C’s car broke (who needs a clutch anyway?) so we couldn’t make the 4 hour drive. Nevertheless, I thought I’d show you The Cotswold Perfumery! Such a pretty building! The perfumery courses are run by John Stephen, who […]
