New: Balance Me – By Terry – NARS – Trevor Sorbie

There were collections aplenty among product launches this week. But before I round up my pick of these (from By Terry, NARS and Trevor Sorbie), I want to talk about a new Balance Me product heading our way in August, which I got a sneak peek at on Wednesday night.

How Philips Lumea Hair Removal Changed My Life – Seriously!

Two years ago marked the end of an era for me. A massive transformation took place in my beauty regime that warranted a celebration, a jamboree. OK. The merriment was all going on in my head but if you share my colouring of dark hair and pale skin, I think you’ll understand the reason for my extreme joy.

New: Elemis - Stila – Oriflame

‘Down By the Seaside’ is a track from Led Zep’s rather fabulous Physical Graffiti album. It’s also a fitting title for my pick of new products this week, themed around beauty evoking thoughts of summer sun, sea and sand (sorry if you were expecting rock gods too!).

Realine Beauty Patches – Wrinkle Busting (No Needle Required)

Love the smoothness you can get from Botox but could never bring yourself to have the injections? I may have the answer: Realine Beauty patches.

I first wrote about these little plastic strips for smoothing out brow wrinkles back in February, just ahead of their arrival in-store (see story).  At the time I was reporting on what I had heard. But a few weeks ago I got sent a box of the patches to try for myself, and I must say I am mightily impressed.

June's Fave Freebie – Ren Hot Cloth Cleanser

Today I’m launching a brand new regular feature, Fave Freebie Of The Month. Every month, as I’m shelf browsing at WH Smith (other newsagents are available!), I’ll pick out the lifestyle mag with my favourite beauty freebie mounted on the cover and post a review.

Heading For Sun This Summer? You'll Be Wanting This Then...

The BackBliss lotion applicator
You know that warm feeling you get when you discover a product you’ve been hoping someone would one day invent. That’s my story with BackBliss.

New: Sarah Chapman - Percy&Reed - R+Co - Burberry - Juicy Couture

It’s been a while since I last did a post on my ‘top picks’ of new launches – 6 weeks to be exact (that’s a sabbatical!) It wasn’t intentional or particularly planned, and it certainly wasn’t down to a lack of exciting new beauty launches to talk about. It’s simply that there was a quick succession of events happening which I wanted to write up on my blog – Space NK’s new mould breaking brands, Shiffa founder interview, Anti-ageing Health & Beauty Show and so on.

But ‘top picks’ is back today with a collection of products which I hope you’ll find interesting – I’ve tried to keep it a bit varied. First up we have a selection from Space NK. It’s Double Points time for Space NK’s N.Dulge loyalty card holders, until midnight this Sunday (if you’re not a member do join – it’s a fab scheme!). What perfect timing, I thought, for a round-up of upcoming arrivals. This is all stuff that you can currently pre-order. Following that is a new BB cream from Burberry and a new fragrance from Juicy Couture.

The Crème Shop Eyelash Curler – a £3.99 Shu Uemura Dupe?

For years I’ve been promising to treat myself to a set of Shu Uemura eyelash curlers. The iconic lash preening tool has won a ton of awards and is a beauty editor’s favourite the world over. I’m constantly being told that no other curler shapes up the same.
