My Mother’s Day Promise and Win Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Collection Set!


For Mother’s Day, Boots UK asked me (and other people!) to share a promise to my ma, linked to a gift I would choose for her.  Well, my mum isn’t one for potions and lotions, so for me, my ideal gift to her is something with her favourite person in the whole world – Baby Candy, aka. Harrison! What could be nicer than a photo canvas for her wall marking the first 6 months of […]

I only recently heard about a French beauty brand called Cattier Paris, who have a large large range of skincare and haircare goodies at reasonable prices.  The compact was founded in 1968 by Pierre Cattier, and it’s ethos is creating a range that is natural and carriest the ECOCERT certificate.  I have a selection of 3 products to review.  First I have the Pink Medicinal Clay Mask which is: Natural Face Mask with mineral-rich Yellow clay Provides dry skin with […]

Dove Men+Care Skincare Range Overview and Review


Dove Men+Care is a skincare range aimed, unsurprisingly, at Men, and focuses on a few core essential products that are supposed to encourage the ‘guys’ into taking care of their skin. The range is split into types; Sensitive, Hydrate and Revitalise, although one can mix and match as I am sure a lot of people could do with a mixture of the three! Mr C received a Face Wash, Moisturiser, Post Shave Balm and Shaving […]

Christmas Haul: Soap & Glory Best of All Indulgence Kit – Is it worth it?

hope and glory best of all

One of the coolest things Boots has running during the festive period is their half price offers – every week a ‘star’ item is half price and it usually varies from electricals to perfume to make up kits. The best of all is the final week before Christmas where it has been (for the last few years) the biggest Soap and Glory gift set which is usually placed at half price or slightly less ‘better […]

Kiehl’s Skincare Set Sale Haul! Ultrimate Strength Hand Salve, Creme de Corps, Ultra Facial Moisturiser


Over Christmas I did well to avoid sales and unnecessary purchases, although I was tempted by the online SpaceNK sale (which was pretty good if you got there early enough)! I ended up with this Kiehl’s skincare set which was half price (it was around £27 I paid in the end) for four full sized items! I have a soft spot for Kiehl’s products so this was a really nice chance to try them out […]

Yon-Ka Paris Tonic Dry Skin Lotion Review!


Even though it isn’t for everyone I do love a bit of toner.  It just balances out my skin and make everything feel fresher – I sometimes use an exfoliating toner (but not too often) and I also use a hydrating one in a mist or on a sheet mask (which is very common in Japan and is recommended by Chizu Saeki).  I started using this Yon-Ka (a French brand, although I think it sounds […]

Review: Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant


I am a big fan of toner for a whole host of reasons; to make my skin feel really clean, to make my skin feel fresher, to leave the skin slightly more moisturised (especially with Japanese ‘lotions’).  I dislike toners with alcohol as my skin is already dry, but I also don’t like how some moisturising toners can leave a sticky feeling to the skin. A product I had a demo of once on a […]
