Mix Up Your Look With Pixi MultiBalms

Pixi multibalm review

For my travels this week in New York I wanted to cut down my make-up bag a little and only take what I really needed. Being summer in New York at the moment and extremely hot, I wasn’t planning on wearing too much during the day and that’s when Pixi’s multi-balms were ideal for my trip away. They are a 2 in 1 product that lets you use the balm on your lips and cheeks and I’m sure eyes could work as well. Easy to pop in your bag for a touch up and I love the cream texture as I find cream products tend to stay on much more for me in the heat. Read More »

Does Your Foundation Have SPF?

Tinted moisturisers with SPF

Well mine doesn’t. I have always had a foundation with an SPF that was until I was converted to Armani Luminous Silk and basically nothing can replace it, but it does not have SPF. So in the hotter summer months instead of foundation I have been reaching for one of these products. They work great on their own or even under foundation for an extra polished finished, which no doubt I’ll be doing as the colder months creep in. I’ve never been a fan of just putting SPF on my face, so these formulas are ideal for me and also give a gorgeous flawless look too so perfect for everyday wear.

A recent study conducted by global leaders in skin cancer research at the University of Queensland, found that the daily application of SPF 30+ on 903 adults under 55 years of age showed no detectable increase in skin ageing after 4 1/2 years. So there is no better time to start applying SPF now, if you don’t already. Read More »

Philips Lumea Prestige SC2009 Review

 
For the past 8 weeks I’ve been testing out the Philips Lumea Prestige Sc2009 IPL hair removal device. In the past I have tested out quite a few IPL devices from various brands and even Philips themselves, but never really been that satisfied with them. However with the new Philips Lumea Prestige I am really happy with the product and the results from it. You can really tell that Philips have upped their game with the Lumea’s since they first came out. Read More »

How I Look After My Blonde

How to look after blonde coloured treated hair

I have been colouring my hair I think since I was about 14, always blonde. Everything from highlights, to different tones of blonde with pink and purple and also the Lady Gaga bright white peroxide, which I completely regret now. Looking after coloured hair is always a challenge, especially when it was peroxide infused. I feel like now I have a really good routine for my hair and some great products that help maintain it.

Alpha H Beauty Sleep Power Peel

Alpha H beauty Sleep Power Peel Review

When a beauty product produces instant results, it’s not only exciting for that reason but what excites me is the results it will produce over time. Normally I test out skin care products for at a least a good few weeks before writing about them, but sometimes once in awhile something comes along, a bit like the hydration boosters, that just blows you away. This time round that product is Alpha H Beauty Power Overnight Peel.

Now don’t be scared, peels are not scary. They are totally safe for home use and you will not end up like Samantha’s red face from Sex and the City. I must admit I was a little scared with this peel to use it, as it’s an overnight product so if my face did react to it, I’d be asleep, but I needn’t have worried at all. My skin is fairly sensitive and Alpha H’s peel was completely fine with it, I did experience a tingle, but that is totally normal and it shows the product is working its magic. Read More »

Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue

Versace Dylan Blue Mens Review

If you grew up in 80’s and 90’s Versace was the brand all young boys and men aspired to wear or smell like, the closest a lot of us got was with the Baby Blue Jeans and Blue Jeans aftershave, fresh, strong and for me the smell of the late 1990’s.

With Versace’s latest release Dylan Blue, I got that instant nostalgic hit of excitement as soon as I smelt it, typically manly with fresh citrus that made it instantly stand out from a lot of the recent releases. Read More »
