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 :-)

How-to: prevent scent clashing

  • Post a comment

So, you’ve found yourself the ultimate signature scent. It’s pretty, it’s feminine and you’re in love with it. But then you soon come crashing down from your fragrance high because your realise this: it clashes with the scent of your body wash. And your body lotion. And your hand cream. Bummer.

Scent clashing is a common problem, beauties. But that doesn’t make the situation any less annoying. In fact, this issue is seen as so seriously pesky, many brands have created product ranges in the same scent family just to solve it! And solve it they have done.

One such perfume family is the brand spanking new Crabtree & Evelyn Himalayan Blue Fragrance Collection. It’s fresh and citrusy – making it perfect for summer – and features the utterly delicious notes of mandarin and orange leaf mixed with a hint of lemon. Love a little floral touch to your juice? You’ll find rose absolute, pink pepper and Himalayan golden champaca blossoms in this one too. Pretty!

But how is this divine new range going to prevent scent clashing? Well, you’ve just got to…

SHOWER IN THIS… Crabtree & Evelyn Himalayan Bath & Shower Gel
This bath and shower gel conditions the skin with botanical extracts, while leaving behind a subtle spicy scent.

HYDRATE WITH THIS… Crabtree & Evelyn Himalayan Body Lotion
Enriched with ingredients from the Himalayan Mountains (read: champaca and green tea extracts), this nourishing lotion also contains green tea oil and shea butter.

SPRITZ ON THIS… Crabtree & Evelyn Himalayan Blue Eau de Toilette
This EDT is your main fragrance source, as its fragrant blend of citrus, floral and spicy base notes of patchouli and exotic woods will linger for hours.

TREAT YOUR PAWS WITH THIS… Crabtree & Evelyn Himalayan Hand Therapy
Want to enhance your scent’s staying power and nab noticeably softer hands? This rich moisturising hand cream will do just that.

Yep, a collection like this is the perfect way to ensure you’re getting the absolute most out of your favourite juice, without any unfortunate scent clashing...





Do you suffer from scent-clashing issues, too? Or do layer your favourite scent like this already? What is your favourite fragrance?

Megan Gale’s beauty secret

Megan Gale’s skin is pretty flawless, so if she’s vouching for a skin care or make-up product (or in this case, both), we’re totally on board.

So why does Megan Gale love it? Watch the video below to find out…

Who wouldn't love to have skin as flawless-looking as Megan's?

I love the whole idea of bb creams but so far have only tried the Garnier one. I liked it but it left my skin looking a little shiny . . so I'd love a bb cream with all the wonderful benefits and no shine :-)

I have not used a BB cream. Not convinced yet that it would be suitable for my skin type.

Video how to: get rid of knots and tangles

  • Post a comment

Your world is about to be rocked, beauties, especially if you’ve got unruly strands that refuse to behave…

Say hello to Tangle Teezer – the revolutionary brush that is changing ladies’ lives the world over. OK, OK, that does sound a little dramatic, but it is the highest selling hairbrush in the UK, so at least I’ve got some stats to back me up.

And why is everyone going absolutely nuts for a hairbrush? Good question, and this is the answer: this innovative brand has created a small range of handle-less brushes with flexible plastic bristles that gently glide over your knots to untangle them in a pain-free fashion. Yep, no more pulling. No more tugging. And no more yanking. Just knot-free, silky hair.

Oh, but there’s more. The patented bristles on these bad boys ensure your hair isn’t broken, so you’ll never find chunks of hair or split ends caught in the brush after you’ve used it. It’s incredible.

But enough jibber-jabber from me. Watch on as Kate and I talk you through this Tangle Teezer hair wonder, and show you just how well it really works when it comes to fighting messy, ratty ends…

Tangle Teezer Salon Elite

Tangle Teezer Magic Flowerpot

Tangle Teezer Compact Styler





Have you heard of Tangle Teezer before? Does your hair knot and tangle easily? Are you keen to try out this super-spiffy brush?

I haven't heard of this but don't knowif I should bother. I bought the Michel mercier one recently and it was so bad. It didn't glide through my hair- it just made it frizzy- so disappointed. Don't think I'll waste my money on another possible gimmick

Awesome! I am so getting the magic flowerpot so my toddler can brush his beautiful curls with ease. He always gets a conventional brush tangled up.
