Scent of the month (October): COCO

Autumnal scents are so enjoyable. Time to move away from the fresh cologne and slip dress into something a bit more spicy. Time for a fucking big coat and to smell like something delicious. I love Eden perfumes version of Chanel’s Coco. (Yes it smells 99% the same). Available here.

Indeed Labs hydration range

I’ve done a full review of hydraluron, their staple hydrating serum and most well-known product. But, I thought their whole hydrating range was worth talking about. Indeed Labs are a young, small brand. And they don’t create product for the sake of it. Everything I have tried from them has been a hit. I love…

Herbivore Phoenix Oil: Review

The brand: Natural, new, ‘clean’, vegan. The product: Rosehip based facial oil. Who can use it: Best for drier more mature skins, but my oily face loved it. Good for all.

Buying a puffer jacket? ARE WE ALLOWED??

Ah, the universal puffer. Is it still ‘ok’ to buy a puffer jacket in 2019? I mean, I didn’t think I was that person either. The North Face craze/ that green UO puffer jacket put me off for sure. But, I think, as long as you step away from Topshop, UO, North Face, you can…

Sunday Riley Luna: Review

The brand: ‘Natural’, been around for a while. I’m doing this review of Luna with a focus on acne skin types, because I know it’s been reviewed to death. The product: Vitamin A (retinol) treatment oil. Who can use it: Best for maturer skins, but with so many of these oils, I think it would…

Scent of the month (september): Body Shop Oils of Life

Yes, this scent of the month is a cleanser. I use this to take my makeup off and OMG IT SMELLS AMAZING. It’s like an end-of-summer-dirty-tan kind of smell. I’m assuming the rest of the range smells the same, in which case go and have a sniff in the shop. Try it, this tube of…

Scent of the month (August): Thierry Mugler Cologne

I KNOW IT’S SEPTEMBER   Thierry Mugler Cologne (which I looked into, and yes is cruelty free) was something I picked up after Sali Hughes raved about it on instagram. It sounded right up my street, and it was! I sprayed it liberally whilst on holiday and it was a joy! It’s cologne, so don’t…

Reformation is coming to the UK, and SALE

Sustainable favourite Reformation had introduced free shipping and returns to the UK, and a London store is coming to Westbourne Grove very soon. Prices start very high, you’re paying for ethical production and sustainable fabrics – so no surprise, but the end of summer sale lessens the blow a little. Here are my picks from…

five of the best: hydrating toners/mists

Instantly gratifying, and good to use after an acid toner for some skin balance, hydrating toners are a nice addition to a skincare routine. Partcularly because of their lightness (it’s literally a water), you can keep layering them on throughout your routine or the day-to-day. A hydrating mist isn’t going to change your life, but…
