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.

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 The Fear that it is going to make my rosacea flare up and leave me with raw, angry, bright red skin. However, I’ve been really lucky to try so many great ranges, and this  Sukin skincare is another to add to the list.

essie Fall 2015 Collection Swatches and Review

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?
