ColourNation OLAPLEX Treatment Review


Although I spend a lot of time and money on my skincare and make up, my hair is a totally different story. I put off washing it for as long as possible (too much faff), do the bare minimum to keep it looking vaguely presentable and get it cut when I really can’t put it off for any longer. I always forget to use heat protector spray when straightening and it’s currently 3 different colours (my natural roots, a brassy blonde in the mid lengths and quite blonde at the ends). In short it is a mess. Or was…

October 2015 Monthly Beauty and Lifestyle Favourites


November! Unbelievable! This month has been a very busy and stressful one with work, so my blogging has taken a bit of a back seat but you’ll be happy to hear that I’ve still been keeping track of my favourite beauty and lifestyle products this month.

Sukin Skincare For Sensitive Skin #RosaceaReview


I’ve been testing quite a lot of skincare recently. In August I tried the B. Skincare range, and before that I was testing out Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin Range. Every time I try a new skincare routine I have so much fear that something is going to make my rosacea flare up and leave me with raw, angry, bright red skin. I’ve been really lucky to try so many great ranges, and this one from Sukin is another to add to the list.

HJ Manicure Nail Varnish Review


I’m always on the look out for my next nail varnish discovery and was very excited when this brand popped into my inbox. Described as a luxurious boutique nail polish brand, HJ Manicure  is named after its founder, Helen J: a former model who trained as a nail technician and worked as a session manicurist… so she definitely knows her nail varnish!

essie Fall 2015 Collection: Swatches and Review

essie Fall Collection Review Talonted Lex

A few weeks ago I nipped into Boots to look for the new essie Cashmere Collection (no sign but I will hopefully have them by next weekend so keep an eye on the blog for these!) but I did find the new Fall Collection. And essie polishes were on buy-one-get-one-half-price, so it wouldn’t have made financial sense to pass up that opportunity. Right?

#RosaceaReview: A CACI Sakurami Lifting Facial Treatment at HT by Sakurami London


If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t, you can rectify that HERE), you will have seen me post a no-make-up selfie after a facial last week. For people with sensitive skin or rosacea, the idea of having a facial can be a scary one. You have to think about the products they will use (a lot of ingredients can cause flare ups), how much force they will use, how warm the room will be… there are a lot of factors! I also don’t usually like having facials as you aren’t supposed to apply make up for at least 8 hours afterwards: having a full time job means that the only time I can have a facial is at the weekend and I personally don’t feel comfortable wandering around at the weekend with no make up on. HT by Sakurami London has converted me… read on for the details.

SEQuaderma: Treatment For Rosacea And Facial Redness #RosaceaReview


(It’s a bit scary putting my no-make-up face on here but I can’t review a product for rosacea without showing my face… so please be kind!)
When I was diagnosed with Rosacea 10 years ago, (you can read about my diagnosis HERE), I was prescribed a rosacea treatment that made my skin even worse. So since then, I have avoided targeted treatments and relied on my own beauty knowledge and managed my symptoms as best I could with diet and lifestyle changes. When I was approached by SEQuaderma to try their Redness-Prone Skin cream, I was a bit apprehensive and did a lot of reading to educate myself before agreeing to try it. But I’m so glad I did. You can see the final results above but keep reading for the details.
