REVIEW: e.l.f. Studio Lip Exfoliator

I must be finally growing up (or getting old), because I really wanted to buy the Dior Addict Lip Glow Sugar Scrub, but balked at the £25.00 price tag. Applying a gorgeous luxury lipstick when… Continue reading

REVIEW: The Body Shop Honey Bronze™ Bronzing Powder

I’ve been on the prowl for absolutely ages, looking for an alternative to my all time favourite, but inexplicably discontinued, Liz Earle’s Natural Glow Bronzer – which was the most perfect matt bronzer. Body Shop’s Honey Bronze… Continue reading

COMPARISON: Jo Malone & ALDI Pomegranate Noir Candles

I’ve had to revise and rewrite this review – all because I stepped outside for a moment to collect the post. I love Jo Malone candles, in particular, the Red Roses fragrance. It’s a… Continue reading

REVIEW: Omorovicza Copper Peel

Isn’t it funny how we have a pre-conceived idea of a product? We immediately dismiss it, even if we read tons of positive reviews. My problem with Omorovicza Copper Peel, has always been three-fold: THE DESCRIPTION This foaming… Continue reading
