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 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 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 […]

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 […]

Skincare of the Week 17 January 2016

Well, as if you can’t tell, I spent this week acclimatising myself to the Tata Harper products I treated myself to over Christmas!  Inital thoughts are positive so far, extremely positive in fact, but I need a little more time with them before I review them in full. I wasn’t too sure about the Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser at first, it’s a little outside my […]

Skincare of the Week 10 January 2016

 I took a couple of weeks off blogging over Christmas, which was fabulous, but I still kept at the “cleaning my face” thing.  It being a new year, I thought trying out some new products would be a good idea, but I think I tried too much new far too quickly, and my skin fairly quickly let me know it wasn’t entirely happy with the […]

Skincare of the Week 20.12.15

I got a bit obsessed with a couple of products this week, namely the Pixibeauty Skintreats H20 Skindrink serum and Glowtion Day Dew moisturiser.  Mixing them together, and using in place of my regular moisturiser has lead to a lovely, fresh glow that’s rather addictive.  I find the cream just a little too glow-y on it’s own, but mixed with the H20, it’s ideal.  I […]

16th December 2015

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 […]

Skincare of the Week – 13 December 2015

Not a hugely exciting week skincare-wise, admittedly – I’m still ill and still look like death warmed up (if death was into the fourth week of a cough that makes them puke at regular intervals, that is) – but I did get my Caroline Hirons Skincare box this week, so from Tuesday onwards you can see the Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum, and the Dr Dennis […]

Skincare of the Week 06.12.15

Having sensitive skin whilst the seasons are changing can be awkward, certainly I find that I have to be extra careful with the active ingredients in skincare when the weather is at its least predictable.  Still being ill with a cough really isn’t helping, either. My skin has been on the verge of being really reactive this week (I can usually tell as tiny bumps […]

Skincare of the week 29.11.15

I’ve been ill for a fortnight now – why there weren’t any posts on the blog last week, sorry! And this is the skincare I’ve been using to help myself look approximately normal again.  It’s not working, I still look like death warmed up, but at least my skin isn’t blotchy and flaking.  For now … Monday brought Biologique Recherche Lait, with PixiBeauty Glow Tonic, […]
