You all know by now that we’re passionate about natural, vegan and cruelty-free products. Maria Nila is100% vegan haircare, developed and produced in Sweden so I jumped at reviewing this hair care brand. In the usual Scandi way the packaging is desirable too with its graphic print and perfectly chosen colour palette.
Now we all know I love finding new cosmetic brands especially natural skincare that’s cruelty free. When I was asked to try Balance Me I was excited in minutes after reading about Rebeca and Clare the two sisters who had created it. Not only did they understand the importance of natural skincare
I’ve been using Elizabeth Arden products for years, starting with their iconic Eight Hour Cream becoming an essential part of my makeup kit at twenty years old. With this in mind I was excited to meet the people behind the brand. Time for a refresh, see what they’re up to
We know we have to take our vitamins for our health and we know they improve our immune system. We know vitamin C's ability to curb the common cold and I can definitely admit to using it in the form of Berocca to help recover from a hangover or two.
Having spent years experimenting with the colour of my hair during my teens and twenties I had finally succumbed to the 'au naturale' look and then the dreaded greys began to set in. This has led to me needing a root tint every 6-8 weeks and my hair drying out even faster than my peroxided blonde days
I’ve been a big fan of PHYTO for years - 25 years to be precise. I first started using their products when I became a makeup artist in my early twenties, starting with their very iconic hair oils. Now they're not only in my work kit but a big part of my haircare at home.
I tried Botox in my late thirties and deciding after a few attempts it really wasn’t for me. So now I’m embracing getting older au naturel, which isn’t always easy. That's why I’m always on the look out for new cosmetics that help the ageing process and improve the appearance of my fine lines.
Longer more voluminous lashes have always been on my wish list. My lashes are what you would describe as average. They don’t look their best naked and it has to be said this hasn’t improved with age! I’m a big believer that good lashes make your eyes look bigger and can make your whole face look fresher and younger.
I first came across Arbonnewhen I worked with Kim Mellor who just happens to be one of Arbonne’s independent consultants. Always on the look out for new beauty brands my ears were pinned back when she said 100% vegan, pure and cruelty free and acompany that was committed to being eco-friendly.
I was introduced to the Collagen Wave facial by my agent. She was amazed by the results in her skin – smoother, less tired and more youthful. This had my attention in a second. I love to hear about non-surgical treatments that are anti-ageing.
I was introduced to the Clarisonic by my mother who works for Lancôme. She’d been using it for a few months and has seen a great improvement in her skin. I always want to do my research before I invest time and money into a gadget, plus I was curious to see what all the fuss was about.
There's been quite a buzz about Egyptian Magic for some time now. I've been slightly hesitant to try it because of the way it looks. Let's say it’s not the most glamorous of packaging. Well if ever there was a time to use the quote “never judge a book by it’s cover”, it’s now! This product is great.
Now it doesn’t take much to get me interested in a new lotion or potion, part of the job. Now i’m 40 plus, mention anti-ageing and you will always have my attention. I was first introduced to BIO EFFECT EGF SERUM by an Icelandic model who highly recommended it.
