OUT NOW! - Elle with Free Sample of Benefit’s Brand New Roller Lash Mascara

Yes, it’s out! I’m talking about the March issue of Elle mag.

I know I’m not the only one who’s been desperately waiting for it to hit newsagent shelves.  It comes with a free sample of the brand new Benefit Roller Lash mascara. Actually, it’s more than ‘brand new’. The mascara isn’t even out yet – it’s not due to drop on counter until March.

The Quickest Way to Give Winter Skin a Healthy Glow

For many of us Winter means stodgy food, not much exercise and perhaps, if we’re honest, too much booze. Couple that with environmental challengers such as freezing temperatures, blustery winds and central heating, and it’s no wonder that our skin complains!

We may be back at the gym again, and eating more healthily after Christmas, but it’s going to take time for these lifestyle changes to filter through and benefit our skin. So, it’s at this time of year, perhaps more than any other, that I rely on liquid face shimmers to help me out.

3 Fabulous Products To Tame Frizzy Winter Hair

On a typical dank Winter’s morning you can be sure of one thing – I’ll be reaching out for some heavy-weight hair management products! My hair doesn’t do Winter. It’s porous. If there’s the slightest bit of moisture in the air, my hair will suck it up like a sponge, transforming my erstwhile neatly styled locks into a ball of frizz!

Anti-frizz products are a MUST for me in Winter. Here are my current top 3 favourites:

You Beauty Discovery Launches 'Highlights of 2014' Collection

Hot on the heels of the Naturisimo mega value natural beauty discovery kit (post here), comes a limited edition money saving collection from You Beauty Discovery.

NEW LAUNCH REVIEW: The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

A mask that bounces? Yes it does - in a manner of speaking!

I was most intrigued when I first heard about the launch of The Body Shop’s new Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask.  The overnight mask, which dropped on counter Tuesday last week, has a memory shaped texture that is designed to ‘relax’ on to the skin to provide a surge of moisture as you sleep.

NEW LAUNCHES: Urban Decay, O'right, Green People, MUFE, Laura Mercier

At a time when a lot of us are feeling the pinch financially, beauty brands are putting out new product after new product. Life sometimes is so unfair! I am completely spent out after Christmas but I’ve been so tempted by stuff that’s launched over the past 2 weeks that I’ve begun compiling a ‘most wanted’ list, poised ready for when I’ve saved up enough money!

My pick of the week’s launches could have featured twice the number of products than it actually does. But in the interest of brevity I’ve kept it down to a mix of five new make-up, skincare and haircare products.

Color Wow vs Josh Wood – Battle of the Instant Root Touch-Ups

Instant root touch-ups I salute you! Grey hair is going to rock in 2015, by all accounts. Rihanna stunned with silver tresses at the Diamond Ball in December and metallic hair has featured again on recent catwalks.

But no matter how many beautiful celebs and models I see with silver and grey locks flowing behind them, it’s not a look I will ever aspire to. Grey hair is just not for me, full stop.  Spying a new streak of grey tells me that I’m losing my natural hair colour – that’s not something I want to be reminded of, particularly!

REVIEW: Aroma Actives – Affordable Skincare with Premium Brand Heritage

So it’s time to switch up our skincare regime, right? Isn’t that what we’re supposed to do at the start of a new year?

In theory, it’s a great idea.  I’m sure we’ve all got products in our stash we don’t like, or that do nothing for our skin. What better excuse than the beginning of a new year to have a sort out.

In practice, it’s not quite that simple. Change is likely to involve spending considerable dosh on new products to replace those we’re throwing out. That’s not something many of us want to be doing in January, when we’re still counting the cost of Christmas!

10 New Year Beauty Resolutions

I am perhaps a little late with this list, though it is still January, at least! I don’t usually make New Year’s Resolutions. I’m pretty good at blanking from my mind the lifestyle choices I have made that could do with a bit of a shake-up.

The Incredible Rejuvenating Powers of Sleep!

Mine was a funny ol’ Christmas. In the week leading up to it, I had a nasty allergic reaction to hair dye. It’s the same hair dye that I have been using on and off for years, without as much as a solitary urge to scratch my scalp. This was something else – swollen lips, plus red, sore and itchy eyes, and an irritated scalp that I couldn’t stop scratching.
