I am not going to bombard you with skincare as I believe that less is definitely more. Last month I wrote about my skincare regime which is simple and effective.  My routine is always recommended by my dermatologist Dr. Surbhi. I don’t care what bloggers say; there is a big difference if you actually pay […]

More so now than ever, having a Dermatologist is the key to great skin.  They are still able to see patients whereas lots of facialists are now closed. Having a dermatologist has saved me so much money, as I have simply stopped buying so many products unless they are recommended for a specific skincare need.  […]

I have stopped reading all those beauty blogs. The whole lingo drives me mad and so many turn something that should be special, and a treat, into a commodity. Words like ’empties’ and ‘hacks’, not to mention the drive to get us to buy multiple versions of the same kind of product is simply here  […]

After 4 weeks my roots had got completely out of control. No amount of root spray could keep them the grey at bay (I use Root Concealer by L’Oreal). With huge thanks to Penny (who set up Linnaean Salon and Restaurant) I managed to get the relevant colour numbers for my hair.  This is the […]

I’ve cut right back on the products that I buy but I’d run out of vitamin C. I got a hot tip from Debbie from Glow Harrogate.  She tries all the products before she orders them for her clinic and she just couldn’t get over the improvement in her clients skin once they started on […]

I have been a self tan user for over 30 years and it is one of those products that is being constantly updated and improved. Amanda Harrington has been tanning celebrities for years and this range came out of her own need for a product that delivers.  You can book Amanda or one of her […]

There was a time where I was semi-addicted to watching beauty bloggers. I’ve largely stopped as I found that it just fuelled an addiction to random shopping.  Now, I try and learn to use what I already have, and I bring my make up bag with me if I am considering a new purchase to […]

Over the years, on the blog, I have written about countless fake tan products. The older I get the less I like to go in the sun and yet I realize more and more how much better I look when I have a bit of colour. TAN-LUXE has been my saviour this season.  It isn’t […]
