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 […]

Skincare of the Week 8th July 2016

Yeah, it’s been a while … Turns out I like not blogging almost as much as I do actual blogging, who knew?!  Anyway, for today at least, I’m back slaving away at a keyboard. I would have been back last week, but stuff happened, and I’m still wearing the bandage on the middle finger of my left hand, let’s put it that way. Anyhoo, skincare.  […]

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 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 […]

Paris Haul …

Yeah, I don’t normally do haul posts, but I did JUST go to Paris this weekend for an event at the Guerlain flagship store on the Champs Elysees with the Perfume Society. Whilst I was there, I picked up a few bits and pieces and I thought I’d show you.  I’ll write about a few of these in more detail (including writing about my time […]

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 […]

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, […]
