Ever since I went to the spa I have have been more interested in body care goodies, especially scrubby, oily, salty, creamy concoctions. Now – I do like scrubs but I have been looking for the one. I find a lot of them quite harsh (especially when there’s just chunks of sugar or salt in them. I’ve tried one that was just like rock salt. Ouch.) I was sent this Wild Organics Marshmallow Sugar Scrub […]

I got a promo email telling me that the lovely Cargo Plant Love range was launching at Puresha, a UK based site that sells lots of lovely organic skincare and make up brands. If there is one range from Cargo I do like the look of its the Plant Love! I have only ever seen the lipsticks in person but not the glosses and eyeshadows. I did get my mitts on blusher, in Tulip: But […]
I have heard many good things about Korres’s Tinted Moisturizer (I usually favour Bobbi Brown’s) so decided to try it out. I tend to be in a rush, so coverage and moisturizer in one is great for me. And its a Watermelon scented one!: At £18.00, is it worth it? See after the jump!
If there is one collection MAC released that I liked a lot it was the Naked Honey collection. I did miss out on the Salve because you hoarders out there bought them all before I had the chance too…tut. But when I can’t get hold of something what do I do? I steal make it! Let’s get started after the jump!
On the 24th June 2009, beauty products started to carry the Fairtrade Logo for the first time. This opens up a new market for the recession hit producers in developing countries. On the market at the moment, there are various goodies like lip balms, soap, body butters, face masks etc. available from retailers like Boots, Essential Care, Visionary Soap, Lush, Neal’s Yard and Bubbles & Bath. Each product needs to have at least one certified […]
When I was a kid I collected four different things (and I am still a rather sad hoarder these days): 1. Stamps 2. Keyrings 3. Badges and 4. Lipbalms. See how original I was? Anyway I am still a sucker for a new lip balm although with my extremely dry, flaky lips (particularly on my bottom lip) its hard to find a consistently good product. Anyway I hate greasy lip balms – I find it […]
Cleansing Oil? Been there done that. Name the brand and I’ve tried it. I began with Shu Uemura’s Cleansing Oil many moons ago and went through the various types they have (Green Tea is the nicest) then on to DHC and Fancl, then my current favourite RMK. Inbetween, other brands (many Japanese ones, plus some western brands such as Laura Mercier) decided to join the cleansing oil club. The original idea belongs to Shu Uemura […]
