AD | Ten Seriously Good Space NK Beauty Products

Some beauty shopping scenarios for you, tick all that apply: - you're in need of a skincare restock but don't know where to begin - you've saved up for a beauty treat but want something that truly delivers on results - you're sad that summer is coming to an end and...

The Luxury Bespoke Bath Soak – For 50p

The Luxury Bespoke Bath Soak – For 50p

There's no big mystery to this post and it's not rocket science - just simple mathematics and a couple of excellent, unfussy ingredients. I'm going to tell you how I make the most luxurious and effective bath soak for about fifty pence a go; a bath soak that genuinely...

New Diprobase Products: Testing En Famille | AD

New Diprobase Products: Testing En Famille | AD

Since having babies my bodycare regime has dwindled down to the absolute necessities; hacking through my plantations of leg hair once a month and making sure that my shins, which have a tendency to be as dry and crackled as ancient treasure maps, are regularly...

Dr Teal’s Soaking Solution: Will (Probably) Knock You Out

Dr Teal’s Soaking Solution: Will (Probably) Knock You Out

Dr Teal's bath salts are so good I've just ordered some more. Which might sound like a bit of a non-statement (if you like something then why on earth wouldn't you order more?) but when you have a whole shelfload of things waiting to be tested - bottles of bath oils...

Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion: Bye Bye Scrubs

Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion: Bye Bye Scrubs

I'm surprised to find that I haven't ever done a full and proper review on Ameliorate's cult body treatment, the lactic acid-loaded Transforming Body Lotion. I thought I had, but if I have then I can't see it! Which wouldn't be surprising, to be honest, because I...

Autumn, Dry Skin and the Aveeno Dermexa range | AD

Autumn, Dry Skin and the Aveeno Dermexa range | AD

After the best summer in living memory (for me, at least; those older have enjoyed banging on about the summer of '76 which was, of course, hotter, longer and tougher) we find ourselves hurtling into autumn. The leaves are starting to fall, the nights are drawing in...

Bum Bum Cream and the Over-Fragranced Time Capsule

Bum Bum Cream and the Over-Fragranced Time Capsule

I inadvertently opened up what can only be described as a "beauty time capsule" the other day and was almost knocked sideways by the smell that came out of it. I was looking for some bikini hair removal cream (as you do, once a year if you're me - it's wedding...

Luxury Summer Skin Prep with Anne Sémonin | AD

Luxury Summer Skin Prep with Anne Sémonin | AD

It seems like only yesterday, but it's actually a whole year since I wrote my post on the Anne Sémonin made-to-measure skincare routine I had been prescribed. You can read about that here, if you'd like a quick trip down memory lane!) It was quite a complex routine,...

Sunscreen Review: Vichy Tan Enhancing Solar Protective Water

Sunscreen Review: Vichy Tan Enhancing Solar Protective Water

Sunscreen reviews: it's been a while. Mainly because (until recently) I hadn't been anywhere hot for almost four years. And to properly test out sun protection, to really get to grips with the texture and the effectiveness and the pros and the cons of a particular...

Deep Relax: Nothing Compares 2U

Deep Relax: Nothing Compares 2U

I've tried a lot of these "relaxing" bath oils now  - mainly due to the fact that I seem to live in a permanent state of self-induced life-stress - and I can tell you that the Deep Relax from Aromatherapy Associates is one of the very best. I seem have two functional...

Peak Fatigue and the Energising Hand Massage

Peak Fatigue and the Energising Hand Massage

I think I've reached "Peak Fatigue" this week. I could not be more tired. I know we're not supposed to moan about being tired - let's radiate positivity! - but when you feel as though you've been awake since November 1998 and your eyeballs seem to have been replaced...
