Ripe for the picking

  • Post a comment

When I was five years old I lived in London for a year. I don’t remember much from my time there, but I do have one very poignant memory: the time my grandparents took me and my brother berry picking in the English countryside. It was a beautiful sunny day, and we were positively beyond ourselves with excitement when we were given little baskets and set loose amongst the raspberry bushes and strawberry patches. And of course you can imagine our delight when we were then allowed to eat the fruits of our labours (no pun intended!)

So it’s with a warm, fuzzy heart full of nostalgia that I introduce to you the newest member of the Jo Malone fragrance family: Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay. Inspired by childhood memories of blackberry picking, the perfume combines the tartness of blackberry juice and grapefruit with the freshness of bay to give you a top note hit that’s guaranteed to lift your spirits. The perfume then unfolds with the soft, delicate fragrance of flowers, vetiver and cedarwood, for a rich, seductive finish reminiscent of languid days in the English countryside.

Wear it on its own, or spritz together with Lime Basil & Mandarin for a peppery, citrus zest. Alternatively, for a scent that’s more fresh than sweet, pair it with a spritz of Nectarine Blossom & Honey.

Love the sound of this perfume? Then you’ll love the fact that it’s also available in a Body Crème, Body & Hand Wash, and a Home Candle, so you can surround yourself in the scent from top-to-toe and in your home!

Putting an end to pigmentation

  • Post a comment

Pigmentation is a bit of a buzzword at the moment, but how many of you actually know all that much about it? Like, what causes it (other than the sun of course); why it sometimes seems more noticeable than other times; why some women get it during pregnancy and others don’t; and how on earth you get rid of it??

I’m only just starting to wrap my head around it all and I work in the beauty industry! So if you’re keen to find out more about the causes and cures of dark spots and pigmentation then mark 6.30pm on Tuesday 18th September in your diary because we’re having a dedicated live forum chat on that very topic – hoorah!

Bronwyn Fraser, National Education Manager for L’Oreal Consumer Products Division with over 20 years experience in the beauty industry, will be online for an hour to chat to you about your dark spot and pigmentation concerns, as well as answer any questions you might have about the new Garnier Dark Spot Corrector. She’ll also have some great tips and advice on how to best protect your skin to minimise the chance of dark spots occurring down the line.

This is wonderful. Id love to learn more about the garnier dark spot corrector. I was at priceline thursday night and they had signs plastered everywhere saying that due to high damand they had sold out. I guess the staff members were sick of bring asked for it. It must be a good product

Six ultra-fabulous beauty buys (raved about by YOU)

  • Post a comment

Are you looking for a product that delivers a little bit of extra 'oomph'? A beauty buy that goes that extra mile in the attempt to satisfy your every need? It sounds like you're after beauty products of the 'ultra-fabulous' variety.

It can be tricky to unearth these little gems, but look no further, as I've taken the liberty of rounding up some of the beauty buys that got some amazing endorsements from our members.

So if you're in the market for an extra-special solution to your beauty issues, then don't go past these ultra-awesome products that have been thoroughly reviewed by real women, just like you.

ULTRA-FABULOUS BLEMISH SOLUTION: Clearasil Ultra Pimples + Marks Lotion
"I borrowed this from my brother as I was in desperate need for a pimple cream and the next day I had to go out and get one for myself, it is fantastic! I find that it works superb on blind pimples and reduces the redness dramatically. This is now a must-have for me! Without a doubt recommend!!" - minn880

"These were great compared to the originals, which I found ineffective. These were great for use once a week. They got most the grossness out, and I love looking at the strip. Tone afterwards to help close pores." - Retro-glam

ULTRA-FABULOUS LACKLUSTRE LASH SOLUTION: Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Curl Mascara
"This is the best from the Bourjois I have tried so far. The curved shape of the brush ensures mascara is distributed evenly through the lashes allowing for separation, lift and a slight curl. My lashes appear lifted and naturally defined. Love!" - Christy01

ULTRA-FABULOUS DRY HAIR SOLUTION: Goldwell Kerasilk Ultra Rich Care Treatment
"I absolutely love this intense treatment from Goldwell. Intended for thick to coarse hair, the treatment offers intense conditioning for extremely dry, damaged or chemically stressed hair. And having long hair, which regularly gets coloured at the salon, as well as the damage of daily styling, this is just what my hair needed." - Princess Fiona1

ULTRA-FABULOUS BRONZING SOLUTION: Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Bronzer
"I've been wearing this bronzer for the past month and I'm very happy with the colour on my olive skin. Most bronzers make my skin look dirty (like mud), but this one leaves a subtle shimmer and a beautiful glow. It also blends nicely." - PrincessEllie

"This is a great facial sunscreen. It is thin and light and absorbs into the skin nicely. It doesn't feel greasy or oily and the thinner consistency makes it great for use under my makeup. I'd definitely repurchase this when mine runs out." - Kathryn729

I can't stop raving about rosehip oil. It nourishes, it makes my skin velvety to the touch, it makes my skin glow!

CoverGirl LashBlast Volume (orange) is my all-time fave mascara - I'm yet to find anything as effective, long-lasting and affordable :-)
