IMG_7591One of my New Year Goals for 2018 (not a fan of the term ‘resolutions’) is to take better care of my skin. I’ve always been blessed with fairly good skin and have taken this for granted. However, I realise it’s not going to stay like this forever and need to look after it! Continue reading




Now that we are entering winter, the signs of dry, dull skin are starting to appear. From the heating being on full blast to the change in climate, our poor skin really suffers during this time of year. So, in a bid to keep my face hydrated, I have been on the lookout for moisturisers to test. Continue reading


Since moving to Barcelona, there have been a few highlights of living in such a beautiful city. The gorgeous weather, delicious food, oh and… SEPHORA! There are several of the beauty-addict’s dream stores dotted around the city, and although there are rumours circulating one might be opening in the UK, there aren’t any at the moment. So imagine my excitement at being able to pop in whenever! Continue reading

elemental herbology2 edited

Gone are the days where we simply picked a skincare product off the shelf without a second thought, only checked ingredients in food and thought Mineral Oil was a good thing. However, we are a lot more aware now of what is in the products we are putting on our skin as it it so important for the ingredients to be as natural as possible and not full of nasty chemicals.

Liz Earle Review

I was told about Liz Earle products by a friend, who wouldn’t stop raving about the hot cloth treatment. Me, being me, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and couldn’t wait to try it – and I was not disappointed. I received a set with three products – to cleanse, tone and moisturise.

REVIEW polish

The Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser* works together with a pure muslin cloth to gently clean deep into your pores and clear away dead skin cells. As you pump it out it feels thick and luxurious, and as you massage it into the face it feels more like a mask. You then use the muslin cloth (you get 2 cloths) which cleanses your make up off, including waterproof mascara. Skin feel soft and plump, as you can actually feel the moisturiser sinking in.

review toneThe next step is the Instant Boost Skin Tonic toner*, which softens and smooths the skin. It left my skin glowing. As its alcohol-free it doesn’t dry out the skin. Finally, the Skin Repair Moisturiser* is applied, which is incredibly conditioning. It contains natural antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin E to replace lost moisture and help protect against dryness. I’ve been using the three products twice a day and I can honestly say I have noticed a difference. My skin is less dry and flaky and it’s glowing. For under £50 for the entire three step routine it’s reasonable considering the small amount you use each time. It gets my approval, and will continue to use it in the future.
