Brow Buddy by Billion Dollar Brows – It’s Oh So Clever!

The shape of our eyebrows has a dramatic effect on the way we look. Get it right and our faces can ‘wow!’

Here’s a case in point: in her book ‘The Plain Truth About Brows’, Billion Dollar Brows founder Natalie Plain switches the eyebrows of Penelope Cruz and Jessica Alba. Just look at the difference it makes to their faces. Striking!

Black Friday – Deals Running Now and One’s To Watch

It’s Black Friday this week. You’ll know that, unless you’ve been living in a hermetically sealed room for the past few weeks, with no Internet access.

The bigger this American post-Thanksgiving promotion gets over here, the more sceptical I become about the deals (how fantastic and unique are they?). But if you fancy checking them out, here’s my pick of deals running now, plus a couple of Friday ones to watch…

Foreo Luna and the New Night Cleanser Celestial Melting Gel - A Dry Skin Quencher

If you own a Foreo Luna you no doubt adore it. The sonic cleanser and topical skincare infusion device has won a legion of fans since its launch in 2013, and scooped up a heap of awards.

Foreo recently introduced a range of cleansers for use with the Luna, of which this Night Cleanser Celestial Melting Gel is one. You can of course use any brand of suitable cleanser with the Luna, as you can with any sonic device. We all undoubtedly have our favourites, but I’ve been particularly impressed with how hydrated this Foreo formula leaves my skin.

Face Up Fitness: Ladies, Are Those Heavy Lifts Damaging Your Health?

A few months back I had a health scare. I woke up one morning with pretty intense lower back pain. The previous day had been ‘back day’ at the gym, and I knew the two had to be connected.

I immediately called my GP (never neglect pain) and got an appointment for the next day. I then made the fatal mistake of googling ‘lower back pain’ and I convinced myself that the pain was due to a weak pelvic floor, something every mum who’s been through natural childbirth fears like the proverbial plague.

When it comes to value for money beauty products, few brands do it better than Balance Me. Their products may not be the cheapest but the quality of their natural formulations pound for pound is impressive.

Brow Talk with Billion Dollar Brows Founder Natalie Plain - Brand Launches at Boots

There’s a bit of an obsession going on right now with the heavily drawn on eyebrow look. I see it all over Instagram. Perhaps it’s something you totally love and copy? Personally, it’s not for me. Neither is it for Natalie Plain, the co-founder of Billion Dollar Brows - the US brows specialist whose range of products has just launched on the UK High Street at Boots.

NEW: Floral and Fruity Natural Deodorant Sprays from Lavera - On Test

How do you shop for deodorant? Do you grab the first can you see from a recognisable brand whilst doing the weekly Sainsbury’s grocery shop? Or do you labour over every deodorant and anti-perspirant aisles in Boots, stealing sneaky squirts of every product until you find exactly what you’re looking for?

Face Up Fitness: Hate the Gym? Hate Classes? Want to Get Fit? Read On…

In all my years of fitness training, I’ve never experienced anything quite like E-Fit.

I love training at a gym with a passion. The gym is my second home! I’d train everyday if it was good for me – it’s not (it’s just as important to rest muscles as it is to work them).

I’ve tried many different forms of exercise over the years – from competitive sports like badminton and squash, to classes including pilates, yoga, Zumba and spin. In the end nothing gets my enthusiasm up or my heart pumping quite like lifting weights and hitting the cardio kit.

Having said that, I’m always open to new ideas and forms of fitness, hence E-Fit.

November’s Fave Freebies – Benefit They’re Real Tinted Eyelash Primer + Clinique Pop Lip Colour

I’ve taken a punt on my fave magazine beauty freebies this month. Glamour and Elle were the only two magazines with December issues on the racks at my local WH Smith on Tues, and it was a similar story at Sainsbury’s - it was the third day of the month too, so I really was expecting a wider selection!

Still, the giveaways on offer with the two aforementioned glossies more than made up for the lack of choice and were the ones that I’d have picked up anyway.

Puressentiel – the Complete Muscles & Joints Range Reviewed

I’ve been waiting for the right time to crack open this little collection of muscle and joint products from Puressentiel, the natural health and wellness brand that I first reviewed here.

That time came a few weeks backs after a killer leg session with my personal trainer. I was doing dumbbell hamstring curls. They’re not something that I had attempted before – you lie face down on a bench, grip a dumbbell between your ankles and lift it up with a knee bend. It’s tricky and requires a lot of concentration – I kept thinking the dumbbell was going to slip out of my grip and go crashing to the floor!
