Quick Reviews #30 // Some New Summer Body Products

Summer is just around the corner, and the thought of having to bare my winter limbs has me in a bit of a panic. I loathe lying in the sun/going to the beach, so I have to fake it when it comes to tanning/not looking like Powder. Today I’m going to run you through some new additions which I think are brilliant: a wash-off bronzing lotion, a body butter that smells like summer in a tube, and a body oil so glorious, you will never want to wash it off. CHANEL N°5 Fragments D’Or* Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?…

Jules’ October Favourites

Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter in 200 Medium* Good highlighters are unfortunately rather difficult to find at the drugstore, let alone in a subtle, creamy formula that isn’t full of chunky glitter. Luckily for me, Maybelline sent us their version so I put it to the test in a First Impressions video earlier in the year and was thrilled with the result! I’ve been using it regularly ever since but for some reason I keep forgetting to put it in my monthly favourites. The shade 200 is spot on for me – it gives the cheekbones a slightly peachy…

Quick Reviews #29

Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate* You will by now have seen nothing but rave reviews for the 8th generation Double Serum, and, spoiler alert: you’re about to read another one! Having never used the previous iterations of Double Serum, I can’t make any comparisons between older and newer versions. However, what I can tell you is that the 8th generation release is one of the finest products I have used this year, if not the finest. It’s worth the hype, worth the price and it’s something I can see myself having in my routine for many moons to…

Quick Reviews #28 // New In From Elizabeth Arden

FourEver Bronze Bronzing Powder in ‘Medium’ I have been using this non-stop since we received it a few weeks ago, and I absolutely adore it. It creates a healthy, bronzed glow with a lovely, luminous finish that makes you look like you’ve just been on holiday. I swirl my brush around all four shades and the combined colour is perfect for my skin tone, but you can use obviously the shades separately if you wish (which makes it very handy for travelling as you don’t need to schlep a load of different products around with you.) It takes a lot…

Beauty Blogger Buys // 10 Things

I am always curious about products that beauty bloggers choose to buy, aren’t you? The ones they will happily pay for time and time again, despite being sent every product under the sun – now those are the products I want to know more about. With that in mind, I thought it might be interesting to give you an insight into the products that I happily pay for, and which might not usually get the praise they deserve. This post is dedicated to those products: the ones that are never mentioned in posts or in favourites videos because they’re never not…

Review: Clear + Brilliant Laser

A few months ago I went for my annual check-up with Dr Webster and he told me about the latest innovation in laser treatments: the Clear + Brilliant laser (CBL). The CBL is a non-ablative fractional laser* that is considered to be one of the most gentle fractional laser treatments on the market (*non-ablative means that there are fewer side effects and minimal/no downtime, but that more treatments may be required to achieve results. Ablative fractional laser treatments yield quicker results, but you will need a few weeks off to recover). What makes the CBL unique is that it can…

Skincare Game Changer // SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier Serum Review & Giveaway!

Hyaluronic Acid (“HA”) is a natural substance found in the human connective tissue whose function is to cushion and lubricate. It is also a humectant, meaning that it draws water from the environment into the skin, helping to keep it hydrated. It plays a critical role in the maintenance of moisture levels, nourishment of the skin’s matrix and improvement in the appearance of firmness, plumpness and smoothness. In short, HA is responsible for keeping the skin looking youthful and healthy, and if you want to look your best for as long as possible, I would recommend introducing this ingredient immediately.…
