Balance Me Rose Otto Body Oil – An Affordable Luxury


Like many, one of my all-time favourite skincare ingredients is rose. Rarely do I feel more pampered than when I’m slathering oil infused with extracts of this exquisite flower all over my body.

NEW LAUNCH: Espa's Naturally Radiant Tinted Moisturiser – Review + Swatches


Having a handful of different tinted moisturisers, alphabet creams and foundations at your disposal is useful, as it means you can switch up or down the type of coverage according to needs and preferences.

On days when I work from home I barely step foot outside the front door, usually leaving the house only to drop off and collect the kids from school. Then I want a base that’s light, something that feels feather-weight on my skin and gives a barely there wash of colour.

I have nothing against the LightStim itself. In fact, I think it still one of the best devices in its class. It’s the technology behind it that I’m not sure suits me – LED light therapy.

The choice of brow products available to buy is eye popping. It’s a reflection, of course, of the enduring appeal of the full brow. As I’ve said numerous times on the blog, I’m all for it – it’s a very youthful look!

You don’t have to walk far into a branch of Boots, Superdrug or elsewhere to spot waxes, powders, gels, pencils, brow mascaras (with or without thickening fibres), growth serums and let’s not forget bling – sparkly crystals which can be stuck on to brows for the ultimate party look (or not, depending on your view).

Rio Beauty Deep Pore Cleanser – Does More Than You Might Think!


Rio Beauty. There’s a name that takes me back. Rio Beauty was the first brand of home beauty device I ever bought, in the days when the blog was a mere twinkle in my eye!

The product, the 60 Second Face Lift, was the one that sparked my passion for professional beauty treatments adapted for home use.

The 60 Second Face Lift is still around today, and has since been joined by a number of other Rio Beauty products, one of which I’m reviewing today, the new Deep Pore Cleanser. I was recently sent one to try and I have been using it daily for the past few weeks.

As Spring unfurls and the sun starts to make its presence more felt, many of us are turning our minds to skincare and makeup that protects our skin as well as enhances its appearance.
