Synergie – Potent Grade Skincare On Test

You may recall that earlier this year I met with the creators of a brand new skincare concept that was set to launch in the UK. What was particularly exciting about it was the potency of the skincare.

An Australian brand called Synergie, the skincare included high doses of some of my favourite anti-ageing ingredients, plus a heap of actives I’d never heard of but which sounded incredible on paper (see launch story).  Also, I loved the brand’s formulation strategy  – combining cutting edge scientific breakthroughs with naturally derived ingredients, plus a commitment to ‘clean’ science (ie, no harmful or questionable ingredients).

Just before Summer I was sent samples of the Synergie range to try for myself. With my trial complete, and the Synergie concept now fully launched on our turf, it seems the perfect time to post my review.

September’s Fave Freebie – L’Occitane Hair Repair Duo

When I bought a copy of InStyle last Monday I was perhaps jumping the gun a little. The date was 1st September and most October issues had yet to hit newsagent shelves.

My hunch was correct, though in fairness there doesn’t seem to be a great deal of competition!

Where did Summer go? I can’t believe it has been more than a month since my last blog post. It only seems a moment ago that I was waxing lyrical on my two favourite tan fakers (post here). Today is Friday 5th September and thoughts are turning to Autumn, no longer Summer.

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?
