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 […]

Clinique Aromatics in Black Essentials Gift Set

Christmas isn’t Christmas in the Lippie household without an Aromatics gift set of some sort, and so, after discovering that I have enough of the original Aromatics Elixir to last me approximately 400 lifetimes (so around 4 bottles then, including various special editions), this year, I went for an Aromatics in Black box.  Released in 2015 as a “Noir” version of the original, Aromatics in […]

Finishing Touches: LipsNspritz of the Week 8th July 2016

It’s been a mixed bag, fragrance-wise this week.  It’s ostensibly summer, but I can’t imagine anything less summery than this dark and dank July we’re having so far!  Like with the weather, my perfume choices have been a bit all over the place, too. Monday brought Tangerine Vert from Miller Harris, a herbal-fresh and zingy citrus that was perfect for blasting away those dreadful Monday […]

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 […]

Skincare of the Week 7th February 2016

A mixed bag skincare-wise this week, I started the week with a Zelens-heavy routine (have I mentioned how much I love Zelens?  It’s true, I do), and, I still love a full routine from them – in particular the Z Recovery Intensive Repair Balm, which is a lifesaver.  A non-greasy balm that sinks in, heals and nourishes stressed skin, I’ve used it after operations, during […]

Clinique Sweet Pots ptII – Black Honey and Red Velvet

It’s hard having completist tendencies.  I mentioned Clinique Sweet Pots a couple of weeks ago, and mentioned that I wanted Red Velvet and Black Honey.  And lo! Here are Red Velvet and Black Honey (note to Clinique, I can’t resist Black Honey anything, as well you know).  From left to right here are Candied Cassis, Orange Blossom and Pink Framboise, then Red Velvet and Black […]

Skincare of the Week 24 January 2016

 This week was another Tata Harper-heavy week, I’ve totally fallen in love with one of the products, and I *like* the others, but for me, the Refreshing Cleanser really is the outstanding product of the range so far.  There’s a full review of just why I like it so much coming up later this week.  I also went for a Tata Harper facial, at the […]

Clinique Sweet Pots

Packaged like macarons, and available in the sweetest of shades, the Clinique Sweet Pots are rather cute and lovely. This is Candied Cassis, Orange Blossom and Pink Frambois. Yeah, I broke the cardinal blogging rule and swatched before shooting! Consisting of a finely-textured sugar scrub and a gently tinted balm in either side, these are Clinique’s answer to Lush’s Lip Scrubs.  The idea is that […]

Desert Island Skincare

I was wondering, briefly, what I would take if I had to pare down my skincare routine right down to its very, very basics.   I get lots of people mentioning that I use a wide range of products on my skin, and if I think that’s a good idea, bearing in mind that my skin is quite sensitive.  My reply is usually that whilst […]
