NEW: Vichy Dermablend 3D Correction – Camouflage Without Heaviness

Vichy’s original Dermablend Fluid foundation is one of the few full-coverage bases that I can wear without it feeling cloying. It’s a brand best-seller.

But now there’s a new kid on the block that’s overtaken it in my affections: Dermablend 3D Correction.

A 30-minute Workout You Can Do In Your Lunch Break

It isn’t always easy getting to the gym during the working week.  The 9-to-5 is no longer the 9-to-5, and if (like me) you work from home whilst juggling a family, the free time you once had no longer exists. Life is busy!

It’s a scenario that resonates with online sports and nutrition retailer Met-Rx, which recently invited a handful of fitness bloggers to come up with a mini exercise routine that could be done during a quick 30-minute lunch break.

My programme is one that you could do at your desk. It’s suitable for beginners and requires no equipment – though you could add in weights (dumbbells or ankle/wrist weights - keep them in a drawer) to switch things up and make the workout more challenging. These exercises are some of my favourites and use different muscle groups to work the whole body.

Time is short, so let’s get training!

The just arrived Vice collection comprises a  whopping 100 different colour  lipsticks, from bold brights and intense darks, to easy-to-wear neutrals. Most are new but old favourites from past Revolution formulas have made a return too.

Nu Skin Moisture Mist – A Product I Couldn’t Live Without Right Now!

We all have types of products that we couldn’t live without. One for me is a spritzer, something I can spray onto my face throughout the day to keep my skin hydrated.

Such is my need that I am constantly on the lookout for a product that’s better than the one I am currently using. Of course, this means that I am never totally satisfied, but then it has allowed me to assemble quite a collection of pretty good facial mists along the way.

The Body Confidence Debate: Why The Gym That’s Covering Up Its Mirrors Has Got It All Wrong

So, those of us who work out a gym are self-obsessed narcissists who spend our time staring at ourselves in the mirror and taking selfies rather than training?

I jest but the suggestion did occur to me as I read last week that a US gym group is covering up its mirrors on Mondays in support of body confidence.

3 Hair-Raising Gift Ideas for Father’s Day (Dad Reviewed)

If there’s one subject that’s guaranteed to get men fired up when it comes to ‘beauty’ it’s hair. Whether it’s the stuff that sprouts from their faces or the mop that grows (or doesn’t!) atop of their heads, they will have a strong feeling about it.

Some men cherish their whiskers, others covet a clean shaven look, and then there are those who fret endlessly about receding hairlines.  Whichever camp the men in your life fall into, a gift of hair beauty is a certain pleaser.

It’s Father’s Day on Sunday. If you’re cutting it a bit fine with a gift still to buy, or scratching your head not knowing what to buy, then here’s three hair-raising suggestions (sorry, shameless puns).
