Alpha H Daily Essentials on QVC (with Giveaway!)

I love Alpha H Skincare, there’s simply no getting away from it.  So, when I relaunched Get Lippie recently (hopefully you might have noticed!) I thought what better way to do so than with a giveaway from one of the brands I discovered through blogging, and who, in my opinion, really get skin?  There was only one brand to speak to.  So I did. Then […]

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil

Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing oil is a staple of my routine, and frankly, I’m really embarrassed that it’s taken me till now to review this product! I have sensitive skin, and this, coupled with a rather, um … magpie-like … approach to collecting skincare can cause occasional problems.  However, Clinique Take the Day Off oil has never, ever caused me a problem. Unencumbered […]

No7 Lift and Luminate #BetterTogether Trial Results and Review

This is a sponsored post on behalf of No7 In January, I started taking part in the #BetterTogether Challenge with No7, whereby I was going to be using only their revamped range of Lift and Luminate skincare for a month.  Now, I’m back to talk about the results! Now, it has been a heck of a challenge for me, and the temptation to continue picking […]

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse #PixiPretties Collection

Right. I’ve started this “review”, like, fifteen different ways now, and they were all a complete bag of utter shite.  I’m out of the habit of blogging at the moment, admittedly, and I can’t deny it, but there’s no way for me to write a “proper” review of this anyway. She’d squash me. The truth is that Caroline is a friend of mine, and Pixi […]

No7 Lift and Luminate #BetterTogether Challenge

 This is a sponsored post on behalf of  No7. It is always good to challenge yourself to do something different once in a while. Towards the end of last year, some exciting (terrifying!) opportunities arose for me, and they have led me to challenge myself to do more exciting – and different – things this year, too.  And, as a skincare junkie, who better to […]

Murad Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essense and Ultimate Moisture Review

 It’s hard work being a beauty blogger with sensitive skin, sometimes.  I’m a big fan of results-led, science-based skincare, and I have a clear preference for doctor brands that have a philosophy of really caring for skin, rather than just using skincare as line extensions for their other product ranges.  This isn’t to say that there isn’t good skincare coming from other more nature-based, or […]

Serozinc, how much do I love thee?

A whole heap, is how much.  Not so much a review, this piece, really (I’ve already reviewed Serozinc here) just mentioning in passing that Escentual (by far my favourite place to buy French skincare  products in the UK) has these cute mini-cans of Serozinc in stock now, and they cost only £3 per can!  Escentual is currently hosting its annual French Pharmacy event, and they’d […]

Beuti Skincare – Beauty Sleep Elixir

I don’t normally do this, so I hope you will forgive me, just this once.  It’s exceedingly rare that I feature a skincare product after less than a month (minimum) of use, but this little bottle of golden elixir, Beuti Skincare’s Beauty Sleep Elixir appears to be quite magical. If you’ve been a Get Lippie reader for a while, you’ll know I’m prone to both […]

Skincare of the Week 6th March 2016

I didn’t really have a theme for skincare this week, except “get back on track”, because, after a week away and a weekend in Paris my normal routines have gone a little to pot, I have to admit.   On Monday I trialled used May Lindstrom’s Honey Mud in the shower, as a protective mask against the shower water (I do find that water irritates my […]

Skincare of the Week 31 January 2016

A short and sweet Skincare of the Week this week because I was ill, and hanging around a cold bathroom taking pictures of my skincare (like you do) took a deserving backseat to me being wrapped up in the duvet, and slathering myself in Pommade Divine, frankly. Nothing better for a sore nose than Pommade Divine, if you ask me. Anyhoo, yes, I’m still a […]

Omorovicza Miracle Facial Oil

Oh, I do love an oil in the winter, and I’ve been adoring this one, recently. a blend of sweet almond, apricot, borage, cotton and evening primrose oils, the Omorovicza Miracle Facial Oil also contains an ingredient called: bakuchiol which also, alongside having anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, has been shown to have a retinol-like effect on the skin, only without the side effects.  Allegedly.  And […]

Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser

I’m not generally a massive fan of cream cleansers, but this, the Refreshing Cleanser by Tata Harper has slipped in under my radar, and made me its willing slave. I first tried the Tata Harper range, as so many people did, as a result of the serum which was included in the Caroline Hirons Cult Beauty Box last year (which I mostly bought for a […]
