BIOEFFECT Body Intensive Serum
Icelandic skincare brand, BIOEFFECT is definitely a luxury splurge, unless you are fortunate enough to be able to afford to buy the age-defying serum on a regular basis (I wish I could re-purchase immediately, however, I do have to save up to treat myself to the face serum as well as the body serum).
I have been using the Body Intensive serum for around six months, only a few drops are needed and I can indeed share with you that my overall skin tone has most certainly improved
RRP £80 for 75ml.
You can buy BIOEFFECT online here or at Selfridges.
Bourjois Little Round Pot Cream Blush
Bourjois is one of my favourite brands and they can do no wrong in my eyes, the healthy mix serum is one of my favourite bases, the intense eyeshadow pots are ridiculously highly pigmented (better than most designer brands) and now these -petite pots of cream to powder blush! They are amazingly similar to the YSL cream blush pots. They blend in effortlessly, perfect for all skin types and can be worn sheer or intense. I can’t stop wearing No.2, a beautiful coral.
RRP £7.99 Available from Selfridges.
Neal’s Yard Rejuvenating Frankincense Facial Oil
I have been using this facial oil for the past 2 weeks and have to say I am in LOVE with this, I am actually going to by mum a bottle because I think this will be perfect for her skin which is dry and she is desperately after a dewy glow. I was using Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery, but I much prefer this one and will be sticking to it as well. It sinks into skin instantly and doesn’t leave a sticky residue on your pillowcase.
RRP £26.75 Available from Neal’s Yard online or in a store near you.
Dr Lewinn’s Instant Beauty Radiance Booster
I am rather annoyed with myself for not discovering the Dr Lewinn’s range sooner. This product is a brilliant make up base, instantly smoothing and brightening skin, with over 70% Aloe Vera, it makes sense why my skin is instantly soothed upon application of this orange cream/gel. It can also be used as a face mask for an intense moisture boost.
RRP £26 Available from Dr Lewinn’s online.
NARS x Pierre Hardy Limited Edition Blushers
Blushers are my staple make up item, so the moment these bad boys went live online, I placed an order for BOTH! How can I gal be forced to choose between a magnificent warm orange (Rotunde) and a stunning pink grapefruit (Boys Don’t Cry)? I got mine a few weeks ago, so not sure if there are any left.
RRP £30 Available from Space.NK and NARS online.
Philips Sonicare Toothbrush
Nothing like good clean teeth, which is why I invested in this toothbrush, it’s on offer at the moment in Boots, half price! I believe prevention is better than cure, especially with the cost of going to a dentist these days! This gadget even comes with a UV light unit to sterilise the heads (perfect for OCD freaks like me).
Was £200, now £100 from Boots.
My baby boy, King
OK, OK, I know King isn’t a product and I love him the same as my other dogs, always and forever. However, last week, I got some bad news about King, he has a heart muscle disease, common in his breed and big dogs in general. He could drop dead at any moment, literally, on a walk he could collapse. He is on meds now and the vet will monitor him, so I’m grateful to have more time with him, which is why I have been giving him even more love lately, because I don’t know how long I will have with him.
So, just some advice to fellow dog lovers/owners, if you feel like the slightest thing is wrong with your dog, check it out. I know my dogs and the moment I saw King limping, I had him checked out, never expecting to hear it was a disease of his heart, the same thing happened when my other boy had cancer, the vet assured my it was an age lump, I made him send it off to be analysed to be sure….and yep, it was cancer. They can’t tell you if they are not feeling too good, they rely on us to keep an eye on them.
Ps, King is in my blog header, have you ever noticed him? He he.
