2 Outstandingly Good Tan Fakers

As this is probably the last post I’ll be doing before taking a blogging break for my summer hols, it seemed only fitting that I should do it on my two favourite tan fakers. I simply couldn’t survive summer without either of these.

Quickest Way To Prep Skin For The Beach – Dry Brushing

We’re approaching peak holiday time and that means one thing: exposed flesh - and lots of it if we’re heading to the beach.

August is the month when body bits more usually hidden under t-shirts and skirts are suddenly set free to feel the breeze and soak up the sun. But while our heads are telling us we’re more than ready to hit the beach, is our skin?

£5 Off Indeed Labs and Other Big Money Saving Offers


We all love a bargain, particularly if we’re feeling a little cash strapped. Saving some dosh now is good for our bank balance long term. Stands to reason, right? OK, perhaps not quite. But we all deserve to treat ourselves from time-to-time.

2 Funky Skin Gadgets You May Not Have Heard Of

I’m a real nerd when it comes to home beauty gadgets. I love them, love them, love them. From the high-tech wizardry of the Philips ReAura Fraxel laser, to the ‘no battery required’ Sarah Chapman Facialift massager, I own a fair few.

Molton Brown Baubles – It Can Only Mean One Thing…

…Christmas! I know, I do apologise for mentioning the ‘C’ word when we’re in the middle of July! But summer is traditionally the time when brands unveil their Xmas ranges and these do drop on counter in the autumn. Yesterday was the turn of Molton Brown. I went along to its festive showcase, its first for a number of years, to get a sneak peek of the gifts it has lined up.

Orico London Streetwise Hydrating Make-Up Remover – A Multi-Tasker

A combined makeup remover for face and eyes is not something I would normally use. For every day I favour separates: a dedicated remover for the eyes (usually a liquid), and a cleanser for the face (usually a balm or foaming to use with my Clarisonic).

But for travel, especially airline with its 100ml hand luggage liquids limit, all-in-ones can’t be beat. They could even be a ‘life saver’ should your hold luggage go temporary walkabout with all your toiletries inside, as happened to my husband last summer hols (he’s not exactly big on skincare but he was without some essentials for 2 days!).
