Camilla Gets JUVÉDERM Filler!

My face has been in the capable hands of Dr Alek Nikolic for the past five years, and to say that I trust him implicitly would be an understatement. I am a big fan of botox, but had never seriously considered fillers until he explained what subtle changes could be made with just a few simple injections. I mulled over the idea for about a year, and finally decided to take the plunge last week. Dr Nikolic used JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC on me, and the results are expected to last for around 18 months to 2 years. You can find out…

Cold Weather Favourites & Some Duty Free Purchases…

Hello, beauty babes! I recently returned from my incredible holiday to Iceland, and I thought I’d give you a brief rundown of the products which performed very well in the extreme cold, as well as some of the goodies I picked up while I was over there. Foundation duo of dreams: IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream + SKOON Glow Drops. I know this is a massive tease because you can’t get IT Cosmetics in this country, but I was delighted to discover this concoction because I find the CC cream a bit ‘meh’ on its own. By adding a…

So, what if Botox isn’t for you?

I haven’t really talked about this on the blog before, although it’s something I’m fairly vocal about IRL, but I’m not a fan of Botox. I’m actually not a fan of any of the more invasive “anti-ageing” treatments (fillers, skin boosters, etc.) but it’s a little bit tricky to explain why. It’s not that I’m not tempted (I am) or that I disapprove (I don’t); my opinion comes from a fundamental need to be able to look in the mirror and love the face I was given. Now, things get a bit fuzzy when I say that I do believe…

Review + Giveaway: SkinCeuticals

SkinCeuticals Review | All Dolled Up

There are certain skincare brands that I feel 100% comfortable putting on my face for the first time because the brand trust is so strong, and SkinCeuticals is one of them. With a simple mission to improve skin health through advanced skincare that is backed by science, their high potency formulas are concentrated in pure actives and proven to penetrate optimally into skin. There is no doubt that the premium range is up there in price and isn’t affordable for everyone, but the effective, clinical-grade skincare they produce is totally reliable, and that’s worth a lot when you think about…

New Skincare Launch // CHANEL Blue Serum

Chanel Blue Serum | All Dolled Up

Today marks the launch of CHANEL’s latest addition to their much-coveted skincare line: Blue Serum. Why ‘Blue’, you ask? Well, CHANEL Research’s scientific curiosity was peaked by the exceptional longevity of men and women who live in the so-called “blue zones” of Costa Rica, Sardinia, Greece and Japan. They live longer and healthier lives, with many inhabitants living to over 100 years of age. CHANEL Research cross-referenced its comprehensive data of skin aging with the latest studies carried out on these centenarians, and the result was the creation of Blue Serum: a cross-range skincare product for all skin types and…
