WISHLIST: October 2011
The problem with having an unexpected free weeknight to myself is that I have found myself trawling through all my favourite online clean beauty sites, and have discovered about 2000 products that I would quite like to purchase. So, in order to make this a somewhat productive exercise, here is the shortlist of products that I am coveting this month - if anyone has used any of these, I would love...
REVIEW: Grown Vanilla & Orange Peel Hand Cream
What: Deliciously scented cream for hands. For: Non-greasy moisture. Review: WARNING: You WILL want to eat your hands after using this hand cream. It is the most delectably scented product I have ever used and I am tempted to have a nibble of my palm every time I put it on. It has the freshness of a punchy citrus scent with the sweetness & warmth of vanilla… and yes, I am drooling...
CLEAN EATS: I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson
I recently blogged about Sarah Wilson’s new e-book, I Quit Sugar. I’m a few days into my sugar-free diet and so far, so good!

The ritual...

HOW TO: Make Up With Blemishes
I’ve had a fairly shocking week with my skin - a total of SIX pimples reared their ugly little heads - two on my forehead, and four on my chin. I was feeling absolutely horrendous, especially as my skin has been quite well behaved over the past few months, so I was caught by surprise by this bout of skincare rudeness. The silver lining to this dark & ugly cloud is that I have had the...
REVIEW: Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask
What: Exfoliating mask that brightens & evens skintone. For: All skin types, and can even be used on sensitive skin. Review: This mask was recently awarded ‘Best in Beauty’ by Allure magazine - and it’s easy to see why. I’ve never used a mask quite like this: it has a strange jelly like consistency that applies like a cooling gel which tightens as it dries. And...
