Spotlight on Argan Oil

A few years ago as I was being chastised by my beautician for my dry skin she asked me what I was using as a moisturiser. She was super unimpressed I opted for all natural products and even more unimpressed when I said I only used Rosehip Oil as my moisturiser. Now I do question advice from this beautician in general (she often boasted she only used French products — I thought perhaps this was a brand; nope, they just came from France), but she did have a point. My skin was dry and rosehip oil wasn’t enough. She conceded […]


Tried & Tested: KORA Organics Exfoliating Cream

I love a good facial exfoliant. They’re such an under-rated skincare product. What the do is scrub off the top layer of dead skin cells, making your complexion brighter and smoother. Also, by removing the old dead stuff you’re allowing your other skin care products (like your expensive serums) to sink in a little better and get to work where they’re needed.

So if this is what she’s using I’m prepared to give it a go […]

Edible Beauty: Avocado Face Masks

We know avocado is great for us – it’s full of vitamin E, healthy fats and antioxidants. But have you tried applying it directly to your skin?

The fruit contains a lot of minerals such as iron, potassium, calcium, sodium, copper, magnesium, etc. It also contains vitamins A, E, B and K. The result of that special cocktail is that the avocado face mask reaches the deepest […]


The missing step in your beauty regime: Oil Cleansing

Wash your face with the Oil Cleansing Method Face washes to me are generally overpriced and full of unnecessary ingredients. For a product that’s on your skin for under two minutes, it hardly seems necessary to pack them full of expensive ingredients that will just be washed down the drain. I would much rather use the best moisturiser than wash. A lot of people also complain about over drying caused by face washes. These products strip the oil out of our skin, leaving our largest organ trying to repair itself by replacing the oil stripped away. This leaves us in […]
