Summer Holiday Favourites

Summer Holiday Favourites | All Dolled Up

The Christmas holidays have come and gone *sob* and since we didn’t get around to doing November or December favourites posts, I thought I would tell you which products I have enjoyed using most in the past couple of months. My beauty routine was generally made up of two extremes: loads of hair and makeup or none whatsoever, so this list is a mixture of good skincare and seriously beautiful makeup: Bioderma Photoderm MAX Aquafluid SPF 50+* My skin tends to be oily on the T-zone, especially in summer, so SPF is my mortal enemy because it invariably makes my…

{CLOSED} Day 3: Win a Thierry Mugler ‘Angel’ Fragrance Hamper

Thierry Mugler Angel | All Dolled Up 10 Days of Giveaways

The iconic Thierry Mugler fragrance, Angel, has been a bestselling beauty product for over 20 years. When it first launched in 1992, Angel was the first of new category of “oriental gourmand” scents that combined flavours (in this case, chocolate, vanilla and honey) with floral accords (patchouli, bergamot and sweet red berries).

Quick Reviews #12

The Body Shop Spa of the World Dead Sea Salt Scrub The Spa of the World Collection launched a few weeks ago and when I popped into my local Body Shop, I made a beeline for the Dead Sea Salt Scrub. I have always been a huge fan of Body Shop body scrubs (in fact, they are the only ones I use) – so I knew this latest offering was going to be a slam dunk. The combination of the Dead Sea minerals and coarse salt crystals create the perfect consistency for a deliciously gritty exfoliator. This rougher scrub suits…

Winter Beauty Update

Winter face masks | All Dolled Up

Masks My collection of face masks is getting a little out of control but I really do love them! My combination skin gets particularly dehydrated in winter, which can leave my face uncomfortably tight and even stinging in places from lack of water. The Clarins Hydra-Quench Cream Mask is packed with hyaluronic acid (obvs), and other happy skin ingredients like katafray bark and vitamin E that help to prevent moisture loss. Similarly, the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask uses nature’s most powerful moisturiser to draw water to the skin. Both work beautifully as overnight treatments too. Skin Serums and oils…
