Say It Ain’t So: A Cellulite Cream That Actually Works

Mio Shrink to Fit

Regular readers will know that Jules and I are both huge Mio Skincare fans, so when we were recently given a bottle of Shrink To Fit, my usual anti-cellulite cream cynicism went out the window and I committed myself to using it for a solid month to test its effectiveness (fear not, I won’t scar you with before and after pictures). I think we all share the same sentiments, by and large, when it comes to lotions and potions claiming to have ability to banish cellulite – they don’t work. However, if ever there was going to be brand to create one that…

Mama Mio at Langaro Lifestyle Centre | All Dolled Up

Saturday dawned wet and miserable, but nothing could dampen our spirits as we were off to a Royal Baby Shower!

I plan to go back and try out one of their massages very…

Foaming Cleanser

A couple of weeks ago I read an article about foaming cleansers and how they can negatively effect the skin, and I had a real light-bulb moment. I had recently started using a foaming cleanser two to three times a week with my Clarisonic, (instead of my usual Cetaphil) and I started noticing that after every use, my skin would be left red and irritated. I am ashamed to say that I didn’t even make the connection between the foam and the irritation until I read that article! So, you ask, what’s the deal with foaming cleansers? Well, to answer that question,…

Winter Skin Savers: Your Body

Winter Skin Savers

I don’t know about you, but my whole body feels so dry at the moment and if I don’t slather on moisturiser twice a day, I end up looking like a scaly wreck. I have a major weakness for anything that promises soft, supple skin, so I’ve ploughed through more than my fair share of body oils and moisturisers in search of the holy grail. In my opinion, these are the ones that deliver during these drying times (see what I did there?).
