Refreshing body favourites this summer

I found a few brilliant body products that are affordable, efficient and super pleasant to use, and I thought they would be worth sharing with you. Maui Moisture Extra Hydrating Shea Butter Body Wash (£8.99 / 577ml) This Hawaiian brand is probably best known for its brilliant range of hair care products, and this body…

Beauty Sample Service: July 2020

I have a confession to make: I’m a beauty sample hoarder. I love collecting all sorts of samples, from skincare to foundation and haircare, and I like to carefully catalogue them based on function, size and beauty needs. I often rely on them for my travel bag, whether I go on a weekend trip or…

7 favourite skincare finds from Indie Beauty Expo London 2019

Indie Beauty Expo might have happened months ago, but it feels like there has never been a better time to support small independent brands! For someone who is as beauty-obsessed as I am, IBE is simply like a candy store for a diabetic kid – equally as exciting as it is dangerous. And the people…

Indie Beauty Expo London 2019: the good, the great and the best

I go to quite a few launch events, beauty talks and trade shows, but the one I’ve been looking forward to this whole year was Indie Beauty Expo in London. The Truman Brewery might not be the most inviting hall generally, but the organisers and exhibitors always turn it into my dreamland location. And since…

Latest beauty launches to get excited about this October

Tropic Skincare has launched two new serums: Glow Berry Brightening Serum and Rainforest Dew Hydration Serum.

My latest skincare empties – serums & treatments

Here comes the long-awaited sequel of my latest skincare empties promised back in May – has it already been over 5 months?! After reviewing the cleansers, toners and masks that have been part of my skincare routine over the last year or so, it’s time to review the serums, treatments and moisturisers that I’ve been…

September favourites

As with every transition month, September is one of those crucial points in every skincare routine that is meant to both bring emergency care for the past summer’s sins and to prepare the skin for the rainy, cold days ahead. And by sins I generally mean too much sun and maybe not as much SPF…
