I have an admission which as a woman is something I’m rather ashamed of. I’m in my early (almost mid!) thirties and don’t have a clue about makeup. In fact, skincare generally leaves me cold so I do a very good impression of an ostrich. If I don’t do anything I can’t be doing that much wrong can I?! Unfortunately, I’ve realised that although I still see myself in my (late) … Continue reading Confessions of a makeup-phobe
When a brand discontinues a product that you totally love, it is inevitable that the quest for a new favourite will soon begin. A couple of months ago, my favourite makeup remover and cleanser were discontinued. After I had turned the house upside down looking for any bottles with a couple of uses left (and then sat on my bathroom floor trying to cut the … Continue reading Charlotte – the Caudalie convert
That annoyingly skinny and perky girl from the gym showers with them. Those hip celebs ease the mind with them after a particularly deep Kabbalah/Scientology session. The carrot-cake eating, coffee-lunching Primrose Hill set bathe their children in them. I’m talking about organic and natural beauty products. These bad boys are no longer relegated to the realms of vegan die-hards and yoga gurus. Rather, they have … Continue reading The Beauty Team’s favourite natural and organic products
This year so far seems to be the year for scientific research based beauty discoveries. I keep coming across new products with a wealth of complex information behind how they work. I don’t really need to know the science; I’m mostly interested in whether or not they work as well as they claim, but I can’t help but find the science fascinating. So, for all … Continue reading The science of Nuxellence
I think I have an addiction to natural tinted lip balms. I didn’t realise it until I counted the number of lip balms on my desk this morning (violating our clear desk policy at the same time!). I may have many, but I really do use them all; they each have a slightly different shade and texture and I love them for different reasons. My … Continue reading Natural tinted lip balm obsession
“I can’t because I have sensitive skin” There are so many times I have heard and used this phrase throughout my life. The latest glittery bubble bath my friends were using, the must-have fake tan that girls swore by, those amazing face washes for teenage spots – I could use none of them, as it would effect my sensitive, eczema-prone skin VERY badly. Endless trips … Continue reading Best products for sensitive skin
I’ve become a bit of a mask addict of late, and recently had the pleasure of trialling a new spa facial mask from the relatively new brand-on-the-block Astalift. Launched in 2012, Astalift was THE brand of year. Created by Fujifilm, (yes the same company that produces your camera!) Astalift uses a naturally occurring antioxidant called Astaxanthin in all their products to shield skin against the daily environmental damage that can cause … Continue reading Need a facial boost? Astalift Re-Plumping Moisture Mask is your saviour
