Over the last few weeks, I have been working with eBay on a new feature to the UK site, called Collections. eBay’s new collection feature is a way for users (sellers and buyers) to share some of their favourite finds by creating interest ‘boards’ in any type of genre or theme. All you have to do is find items you like and add them to a ‘collection’ you have created – it could be an […]
There are definitely advantages to having a dedicated under eye concealer; lighter texture, light reflecting properties, hydrating qualities etc. I am partial to a liquid concealer (I love Nars, Jill Stuart, Origins in particular) but they are for my facial blemishes. I was pleased to try this eye concealer from luxe brand, Sisley, which is especially made for the under eye area. They say: This tinted concealer instantly camouflages dark circles and shadows to perfection, reduces puffiness […]
Melvita is fast becoming one of my favourite brands for reasonably priced, eco-friendly, natural cleansers. Their range is vast with textures and formulas for all skin types. I’ve tried a large selection from the range, most recently two products from their Bouquet Floral Cleansing Range which comes in these snazzy plastic blue bottles: Those cleansers are extra gentle and contain orange blossom floral extract. There’s a milk cleanser, cleansing jelly, foam cleanser, Micellar water, Cleansing […]
I really love using rich body oils that sink nicely into the skin after a shower (dry oils I have realised, don’t really suit my skin) so was happy to try out this Dermaoil product, which feels like it’s in the same vein as Bio Oil – it’s for skin repair and stretch marks. They say: Dermaoil Skin Repair & Anti-Stretchmark Oil is a topical specialist skincare product for anti-ageing, scars and stretch marks.Contains breakthrough […]
One of Bobbi Brown’s newer eyeliner additions is the Smokey Kajal Liners. I absolutely love eyeliners – it’s just an obsession I have, so was rather excited to try out these new releases. These Kajals are quite interesting to say the least. There are six shades; They say: “A new take on tradition-Bobbi’s inspiration for this highly pigmented, incredibly blendable formula comes from classic kohl eyeliners. Her reason? This richly coloured liner can be applied […]
I have been testing some new bath and body products from a UK based brand called Peculiar People – created by Deborah, who started the business due to her love of making handmade high quality products. I have 3 products here to review; Heavenly Hosts Soap, Mango Face Mask and Whipped Body Butter. Interesting fact: Peculiar People is actually a biblical reference (I didn’t know this!).
Oh Jill Stuart. You create the most beautiful looking lipsticks in glossy textures, that are hard to resist. The newest lipstick to join the Jill Stuart family is ‘Lip Blossom’ and debuts with 10 shades. I adored their last lipstick releases - the texture is gorgeous – so I presumed this would be a winner too.
I am so happy, happy, happy, that I have Jo Malone’s Violets and Wisteria in my life. Why, I have a substantial perfume collection, but scents that I truly truly truly love are few and far between. But Violets and Wisteria? It speaks to me. It is very me. For reference, I love light floral and tea based scents, with a hint of musk. I’ve had this scent for months but i’ve waited till now […]
