Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme fragrance review

Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme

Gucci by Gucci

I love a good fragrance and I’m always on the lookout for a new signature sent and I often end up spending a fortune on aftershaves trying to find the right one. In the sales I always search around for fragrance gift sets that have a good discount and this year I was lucky enough to find this Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme set.

My Bathroom Cabinet

I love seeing what products other people are using so I thought I’d share my bathroom cabinet with you.  This is not all the products I’m currently using but it is what is in my bathroom at the moment so I thought I’d let you see so you know what I use.

Decleor Systeme Corps Moisturising Body Milk Review

Decleor System Corps

Decleor Systeme Corps

On Sunday I saw that QVC were selling a duo of the Decleor Systeme Corps body moisturiser and as I had just ran out of my last bottle I thought I’d treat myself to the duo and review the product for anyone that has not tried it yet.

Systeme Corps body moisturiser is a true beauty hall of fame product and one of the signature products from the Decleor body range. Packed with moisturising ingredients including coconut oil and meadowfoam oil Decleor promise this product will create a comforting and protective layer of moisture on the body as well as firming and softening the skin.

Perricone MD Nutritive Cleanser Review

Perricon MD Nutritive Cleanser

Perricone MD Nutritive Cleanser

Perricone MD is the skincare range from Dr. Nicholas Perricone. The range is packaged in pharmaceutical style jars and the brand uses many patented ingredients within the formulas. Most of the products focus on anti-aging and come with a high price tag on the back of the medical background. The Nutritive Cleanser is more affordable that the creams and other treatments from Perricon but still includes the same anti-aging ingredients.

How important is packaging?

With Selfridges selling a limited edition jar of Crème de la Mer without the logo to mark the stores no-nose area, it got me thinking about how more and more of our favourite products are coming in limited edition form.

Elemis Skin Nourishing Shower Cream

The Skin Nourishing Shower Cream from Elemis is part of their Sp@Home range and promises to be free from parabens, mineral oils, silicones and other skin nasties. The shower cream is the sister product to the iconic Skin Nourishing Milk Bath but can this shower cream deliver the same results?

Yankee Candle Spring 2013 Review

After receiving nice clear T-light holders for a Christmas present I was on the hunt to find some coloured T-lights to go in them. Last week I saw QVC were selling a set of the new Yankee Candle Spring fragrance sets that included coloured T-lights and being a bit of a candle junkie I could not resist sampling the new spring scents.

Crème De La Mer – The Mist Review

The Crème de la Mer cream gets a lot of attention and divides many people, some who can’t live without it and others who think the product does not match the price tag. I will be reviewing the cream soon but today I thought I’d look at another product in the range.

Beating the Winter Skin Blues

The winter always drys my skin out. The last 3 years in particular my skin has suffered from the cold weather outside and central heating inside. To combat this I always make sure I’m prepared to add a few power packed products into my routine to add comfort to my skin.

At night I’ve added the Elemis SOS cream and Liz Earle’s Superskin moisturiser to my routine. Both of these products add protection and moisture to dry and sensitive skin. The SOS cream is also a good skin balancer for any skin that is out of sorts so will tackle redness and any spots too.

Depending on how my skin is feeling I either use the products on alternative nights or I mix them together as a power packed bespoke balancing moisture treat for my skin. I always apply them over a facial oil for the ultimate protection for my skin.

Bathing Treat : Elemis Quiet Mind Bath Elixir

The Elemis Quiet Mind Bath Elixir has become, over the last few months, my favourite bubble bath. This bathing treat is a refreshing change from the traditional lavender based relaxing bath products and has a much more refreshing aroma of lemon and eucalyptus  that clears my head and eases the body after sports. Perfect to see you through the new year detox.
