Beauty Hoarder: Hydrating Serums

Beauty Hoarder: Hydrating Serums | All Dolled Up

As someone whose main skin concern is dehydration, it’s no surprise that I tend to like hydrating serums, although why I need so many I’m not really sure! I’m a sucker for anything that claims to improve water retention in the skin and here are the ones currently in rotation on my face: Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Power Serum When Sali Hughes and Caroline Hirons both recommend a fairly affordable hydration product, you know I’m making a beeline for it. It has a very light, cooling texture that sinks quickly into the skin without leaving any kind of residue…

Jules’ Evening Skincare Routine

My Evening Skincare Routine | All Dolled Up

It’s taken me a while to get into a groove with my evening skincare routine, mostly because I have the attention span of a goldfish and like to try lots of different products all the time. It has left my skin a little frazzled though, so a few months ago I decided to regulate my routine in an effort to rebalance my oily/combo/dehydrated skin and the consistency has really paid off.

We’re kicking off a new series on the blog today that takes a sneak peek inside our friends’ bathrooms and makeup bags to bring you their Top 10 favourite products. We thought it would be interesting to see what other people use and maybe discover a few new things ourselves!

I turned 30 this past weekend and although the number means very little to me, my friends took it upon themselves to spoil me rotten with all manner of extravagant gifts. I now have more Le Creuset in my life than I ever though possible but I also scored some gorgeous beauty-related bounty. Here’s the haul: Essie Trophy Wife This nail colour from Hannah is so “me” – a deep, teal blue pearl that makes me feel like a mermaid. I think it’s the perfect toenail colour for summer, and would also make a fantastic base for metallic nail art…

An Afternoon with Estée Lauder

20131021-190454.jpg

It’s almost too easy to be a fan of Estée Lauder. When a company creates such iconic products as Advanced Night Repair, Double Wear foundation and MagnaScopic mascara, quality becomes an absolute given. So we were understandably rather excited to be invited to spend an afternoon with the brand at the Mount Nelson to learn about some of their new launches. The most exciting addition to their product line-up has to be the launch of the fragrance Modern Muse. Inspired by the duality of the modern woman – both soft and feminine while being strong and powerful – it’s the type…
