Vichy Dermablend Foundation
Whenever I mention to people that I like my foundation to be high coverage, there is one name that always pops up: Vichy Dermablend* foundation. I have been keen to try this product for a while – I am a big fan of Vichy skincare as it’s very gentle on my sensitive skin, so I had high hopes for their make up range. I was given this at an event a few months ago and I’m kicking myself that I didn’t try it out before now!
I have filmed a first impressions video so that you can see how well the foundation covers redness and so you can hear my initial thoughts on the texture, formula and application. There are also some bloopers at the end of the video if you fancy something to cheer you up!
Skincare Shake Up January
Welcome to Skincare Shake Up January – a series I started last month (if you’d like to read the skincare I was using previously to this have a nosey HERE).
Another month has rattled past with alarming speed. We are now a month into 2016. I don’t even know what to say about this. So let’s just get going into the January 2016 monthly beauty and lifestyle favourites, shall we?
Want a sneaky peek into the new GOSH SS16 Collection? I have all the new additions here…
GOSH SS16 Collection
I was super excited to be invited to the pre-launch viewing of the GOSH SS16 collection this week.
The range launches on the 10th of Feb but I think there are a few must-haves here so make a note! I’ve updated the descriptions with links – go go go!
The range has a neutral, natural focus with a lot of nudes and subtle berry shades so this is a range that will appeal to, and suit, a lot of people.
I have loved Avène for a long time: they are a sensitive-skinned girl’s best friend so if you haven’t tried them out already, jump to it! I was invited to the launch of this exciting new product: Avène PhysioLift Anti Ageing skincare for sensitive skin*. If you have sensitive/rosacea prone skin like me, you will know the struggle to find skincare that really *works*, without aggravating your skin.
If you’ve followed me for a while, you will know that I try out a lot of skincare: I have a few staple products that I rely on and return to when my rosacea is flaring up, but I am essentially a fickle person. I always wonder what else out there and am constantly searching for the next product to introduce to the skincare hall of fame. So I’m going to start doing a Skincare Shake Up post, roughly every month.
I am incredibly lazy with my hair. I thought that when I cut it into a bob I would be inspired to blow dry it, style it… do *anything* with it. But no: I rough-dry it, straighten my fringe and leave the rest to fend for itself.
With this in mind, the concept of blow dry bars is music to my ears. They’ve been around in the US for ages and they’re finally getting bigger over here, much to my joy. The concept is simple: you pop in, have your hair washed and styled and you’re good to go. Such a great idea if you have a night out or busy weekend or just want to treat yourself.

I was recently invited to the Premier Laser Clinic in Soho to try their Skinbreeze Skin Rejuvenation facial to continue my mission to find amazing skincare for people with sensitive skin and rosacea.
