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 […]

Skincare of the Week 12 June 2016

I’ve been on a blog-hiatus. It wasn’t intended, but it just sort of happened, and, I have to admit, I’ve rather enjoyed it.  I’m just now entering my eighth year of blogging (you read that right), so that’s seven years of Sunday afternoons that I’ve spent at my computer,which equates to nearly a solid YEAR of taking pictures, editing pictures (always the worst part, tbh), […]

Skincare of the Week 15th May 2016

Last week was a really stressful one, with deadlines and auditors galore, I’m still recovering! Hopefully now both the house move and the audit are over, I’ll have a little more time free to do some blogging and cataloguing my collection of … stuff.  I’ve had a few new releases recently too, and I’ll get around to photographing them soon.  Anyhoo, skincare-wise, I’ve been a […]

Skincare of the week 2nd May 2016

I’m trialling a couple of new bits and pieces at the moment, mostly from Zelens.  The new pieces I’ve added to my routine are the Zelens Power D Treatment Drops, which I’ve been adding to my serums this week for a lovely antioxidant boost, and I’ve been using them alongside the Zelens Hydra Shiso Balancing Moisturiser too.  Loving the treatment drops, but I really need […]

Alpha H Liquid Laser Cleansing Oil

As well as being on a bit of a lipstick kick at the moment, I’m currently obsessed – and I do mean obsessed – by cleansers.  Having recently discovered, and loved, Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, I am currently using that and this Liquid Laser Cleansing Oil in semi-permanent rotation. Another oil-gel-based product, the Liquid Laser range is suitable for older, or duller skins, but is […]

Alpha H Instant Facial

This is a rather elderly bottle of Alpha H Instant Facial.  It’s nearly empty, but I love it very much, and I shall be sad when it is gone. Alpha H are the queens of glycolic acid, and their Liquid Gold product is – rightly – a cult, but I find it is a little too stimulating for my skin, so I don’t use it […]

Current Skincare Routine

Serious Face is Serious  I haven’t had a picture of my face on the blog for a while, and there has been a variety of reasons for that, but I tweeted this – totally makeup free! – instragram picture of my mug the other day, and A Lot of people asked for details of my current skincare routine, so here it is. From left to […]

Alpha H Daily Essential Moisturiser – Factor 50+

Get Lippie has flu at the moment, so that means a new guest review on the blog!  I’m handing over to my lovely workmate Kate, who asked me for some advice a couple of weeks ago and got a little more than she bargained for … Within a couple of days of hearing that my colleague Louise wrote a beauty blog, I’d emailed her with […]

My Picks of 2010

My Current Skin Care Routine

I’ve tried a lot of skincare this year – and I’ll bring you some reviews of some of those brands soon, but I thought it would be nice to talk about what I’m using at the moment, as I’m really happy with it, and my skin is about as good as it’s been in the last few years, so I thought people might like to […]

Review – Alpha H facial

Yesterday’s post was about a blissful spa, so full of relaxation that I genuinely think the treatments – though enjoyable – are entirely secondary to the spa itself.  Today’s post is about a spa that’s more or less the exact opposite, putting great treatments front and centre, but entirely fabulous nonetheless. Fern Skin Clinic are the only spa in the country licensed to carry out […]
