New Release Beauty Favourites June 2013

Happy end of June and let us give thanks to the end of another financial year. Why, you ask. Because if you are lucky you will have a tax return in your not too distant future and that means you can spend it one some hot new goodies for yourself, perhaps some of the hot new goodies I am featuring in this post. June was MASSIVE in the beauty sector and I was kept busy with 79 new launches for the month. That is more products than some online stores even stock!

Picking my favourites was as difficult as ever but I think I have come up with a curated list of life-changers. Take a look and tell me what you fancy. Continue Reading

Laughing woman smile with great teeth

Would you consider your dental hygiene part of your beauty routine? I do, and you should. Having healthy teeth makes a big impact on your appearance but it is often the most neglected part of a beauty routine. I understand why that is though, it can be tedious and boring, it isn’t colourful like makeup and it doesn’t feel nice like skincare, and looking after your teeth can often remind you of the dreaded dentist …. BUT … think of it this way, if you don’t look after your teeth you will be at the dentist sooner and more often than you want to be. As an out-and-proud lazy girl (actually, not necessarily proud of it) I know how easy it is to forget about your teeth but I do everything in my power to keep my teeth healthy so my trips to the dentist are pain-free. I have never needed a filling (touch wood) … and that I am proud of!

I am not going to preach about the importance of professional cleans and regular check-ups because you probably know just how important it is. What I am going to tell you about is how you can keep your teeth healthy, at home and with minimal effort.  Continue Reading

Confession time: My feet are so flat they could be used as a spirit level. I used to have perfectly arched feet but since I started working from home and wearing the likes of slippers, ugg boots and thongs, my feet have dropped to an all time low. As a result, wearing heels in any form is now excruciatingly painful. Wearing flats for the rest of my life is NOT an option so I turned to Scholl and their Party Feet range to find some relief. Their newest release are the Soft Touch gel cushions and I am going to share my review today. Continue Reading

Lancôme, Estée Lauder, Revlon … they all do a pretty good job at making beauty products. BUT, I don’t think I have ever been more excited to discover that one brand makes beauty products …. yep, Crayola. If you didn’t grow up using Crayola pens, crayons, pencils and other colouring-in products you had a deprived childhood. I can say that because Crayola was a ‘top-shelf’ brand in my primary school days. It was like the Porsche of colouring-in products (Faber-Castell were the Lambourghini’s). So when I saw The Beauty Delicacy showed this off on her Google Plus page my jaw hit the floor.

Like every good beauty addict blogger, I instantly started hunting down the Crayola range and here is what I have found. I can only find them in the USA (for now). Needless to say, these are all on my shopping list! Continue Reading
