Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle Portrait of a Lady Shower Cream and Body Oil

Confession time: I only own one bottle of Frederic Malle fragrance, and I’ve never reviewed it.  As perfume writers go, I’m a terribly untimely one, I know.  I shall review my (tiny) bottle of Bigarade Concentree one day, but in the mean time I’m having far too much fun reviewing the more peripheral products of the range, some of which are so lovely, they have […]

The best bath oil in the world? Olverum Bath Oil

One of the best things about being a beauty blogger is the fact that all kinds of things arrive in an unexpected fashion,  and occasionally those things turn out to be products you never realised you couldn’t live without, and Olverum Bath Oil is one of those things.  Random fact, I don’t think I’ve actually taken a bath since Kneipp discontinued my favourite Juniper-scented bath […]

Ren Moroccan Rose Otto Ultra-Moisture Body Oil

Now, having said in a previous review about my liking but not loving Ren, there are some Ren products that I do, actually adore, and the Rose Otto range in fact, encompasses all of them.  In fact, I like the Rose Otto range so much that I actually asked for the bath oil for Christmas, and, husbands being husbands (or more specifically, my husband being  […]

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 […]

Votary Cleansing Oil

I love discovering new brands, and browsing around Liberty a good few weeks ago, I was intrigued by Votary Cleansing Oil.  From the colour of the bottle – a pleasing bright green, that stands out so beautifully from the white and pastels of many other skincare brands – the gorgeous rose-gold label, Votary looks different to many other skincare brands, and it has a slightly […]

Pixi Skintreats Rose Oil Blend

  There has been a lot of Pixi Skintreats love in the Lippie household recently, and the Rose Oil Blend is currently my favourite facial oil.  Based on a sweet almond oil base, with jojoba, dog-rosehip, geranium and damascene rose oils, it’s a very light texture, so sinks into the skin easily, and doesn’t make my combination-oily skin greasy.  It smells only gently of roses, […]

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil

Has the hype died down yet?  Is it safe to emerge?  I’d been waiting for Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil to launch ever since I heard a little snippet on the grapevine about it last January.    It took AGES to get onto market, then by the time I got my bottle, the entire world and his wife had theirs, and they had blogged […]

Josie Maran Bright and Beautiful Collection

You know those nights when you’re accidentally awake at 4am and find yourself mindlessly perusing QVC?  Well that happened last week, and two days later, I found the Josie Maran Bright and Beautiful TSV (today’s special value) on my doorstep.  I’ve been pretty impressed actually, and thought you might like to see it too.  Click to read more: The seven-piece set consists of one five-piece […]

Sunday Riley Artemis Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil

At this time of year, I always think a decent facial oil is an essential rather than an optional ingredient in your skincare regime, they add an extra level of protection to your skin in the wind and the rain and the cold, and they are a godsend on chapped and sore skin.  I have a few that I rotate (Clarins is an exceptional source […]

Aveda Shampure Body Lotion, Body Wash and Compostition Oil

By Luke There aren’t many of us that haven’t been seduced by at least one of Aveda’s products. With their natural ingredients, and superb scents in just about everything they do, there was a collective sigh of relief when Aveda first arrived on the scene in the UK, as they proved that harsh chemicals and synthetics in hair products were unnecessary for healthy hair. It […]

Nuxe Prodigieux le Parfum and Parfum Divin de Caudalie

 By Get Lippie Those two great French skincare competitors, Nuxe and Caudalie, have both brought out perfume versions of their cult body oil products this summer, and I managed to get my hands on both so I could compare and contrast each of them. Nuxe is probably the cult body oil product in the UK, and this summer, the iconic rectangular bottle has been re-issued […]
