A wonderful winter skin pick-me-up!
Exfoliating is essential during the autumn and winter months as the colder temperatures lead to skin that looks dull and feels dry. If you have sensitive skin then you may find it difficult to find an exfoliator which is effective, whilst not further irritating your skin. Luckily for you there may be the perfect product: Amie Skincare’s New Leaf Skin Exfoliating Polish. Continue reading
LUSH has just released details of its new Christmas range and we were delighted to see that one of its previous yuletide releases, Let The Good Times Roll facial cleanser, is back for another year! We dug through our archives to find a review of it that we wrote last year… Continue reading
Hallelujah – oodles of honey scented bubbles!
If you’ve ever tried LUSH’s famous ‘Honey I Washed The Kids’ soap, a luscious toffee and honey scented treat, then this shower gel will feel very familiar. ‘It’s Raining Men’ is a silky, golden coloured gel packed with honey, lotus flower, tiger lily and orange blossom – a sweet and rich concoction. This sensual and sticky-sweet mix is tempered with a subtle hint of bergamot which makes the scent fresh as well as decadent. Continue reading
A great all-round moisturiser that’s perfect for any time of year.
I recently discovered Amie Skincare, an award winning company that produces skincare products packed full of natural ingredients. The products seemed like the perfect ones for me as they’re made for young skin that’s oily and prone to breakouts (I may be twenty but I still have classic teenage skin!). Continue reading

A perfect pampering product!

My stack of used LUSH pots has been gradually growing on my dressing table for the past few months so I decided to take five of them to my local LUSH store to exchange them for one of their wonderful fresh face masks. If you don’t already know, LUSH has a fantastic offer whereby you get a free fresh face mask (that usually costs £5.95) in exchange for returning five of their black pots clean and ready to be recycled into new ones.

Beeswax and banana cream for bee-utiful hands.
Winter’s here – it’s cold, miserable, and doesn’t half dry out your skin. My hands tend to suffer most in this weather, so I always like to have a good hand cream to restore their softness. This winter I’ll be using the wonderful Burt’s Bees Beeswax and Banana hand cream. Continue reading
A pleasing squeeze of fresh grapefruit zing.
We know that grapefruit makes a healthy breakfast, rammed full of vitamin C and antioxidants, but personally I’d rather stick to marmite on toast and get my fruity fix in the shower instead. And Lush has got just the product for the job – ‘Happy Hippy’ shower gel! Continue reading
