Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm For Lips! My Most Unusual Beauty Addiction…

dr lipp 4

I received a sample of Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm For Lips, in it’s cool little charcoal coloured tube with a striking thin pink square on the front, and it’s retro style black and white writing. The striking packaging was the first thing I noticed, and  I had already visualised it on my make-up dressing table; the design would fit right in with the rest of my favourite products! But when I read the title of the product, I must more »

Marie Claire May Edition Comes With Free Ciate Polish!


Ciate nail varnish in ‘Pocket Money’ (shade 107),  is my perfect shade of polish, and I’m elated that I have finally found it! I have been endlessly searching for a colour that I can wear with any outfit as a staple varnish for daily use. I’m tired of having to change my nail colour every time I change an outfit. Especially as I am a lover of bright colours, which tend to clash with every other colour but itself. So more »


Wild Rose Beauty Balm by Neal's Yard Remedies £37.00


The Wild Rose Beauty Balm has become some-what of a cult favourite, and I can understand why! The moment I opened the cobalt blue jar containing 50g’s of pure rosy goodness, I was in love! The smell of roses is so delicious, it is reminiscent of a typical English garden, full of blossoming flowers. To me, this product is England, in a jar! It glides onto the skin with such ease, and nourishes, as you massage it into the skin. Only a more »


Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream… How Have I missed this Gem?

8 hour cream

Whilst reading magazines, so many celebrities talk about their love of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, it has become something of a ‘Cult Classic Product’ . I always used to think I must try it. However, one day while watching a friend using it I saw the colour of the cream as it came out of the tube, (it’s a shade of apricot at first, then appears clear once applied), I was completely put off.

There is always a pot of The Green Balm in my bag! It more »


Rimmel I ♥ Fruities Lasting Finish Nail Polish 025 Strawberry Fizz – £2.99

Beauty Blog 029

To describe the colour of this nail varnish you will need think about the halfway point between baby pink and fuscia. I’m going to call it True Pink because it’s original name ‘Strawberries Fizz’ may mislead you into thinking that it’s red. Although, the strawberry fragrance which is emitted when painting the nails is a welcome suprise. The beautifully vivid pigment creates perfectly pink nails with 100% coverage of the nail. Gone are the days of translucent sheens being passed more »
