The Skincare Bibile by Dr Anjali Mahoto

The skincare industry is booming. There are more products available than ever before, more information and with it more 'experts'. Bloggers doling out skincare advice who aren't qualified and who often have the beautiful skin of an early twenty-something. It's hard to know where to go for genuine knowledge and so The Skincare Bible: Your No-Nonsense Guide to Great Skin by Dr Anjali seems to have come at a wonderful time..

And indeed it is full of some great information. A lot of it is basic, which is great, often skincare advice can get a bit sciencey and then the majority lose interest. A lot of it I have covered in my skin science training but here it's laid out in an understandable and approachable way and some of it was new to me. All of this is great - all bases are covered, there is something for everyone here.

CYO First Impressions

A brand that was huge in the US and moved to the UK to be exclusively sold in Boots at the end of last year. I bought a few things to see what I thought of the products - NYX has been such a huge hit over here second time round it's good to keep an eye out for the next affordable big thing. But is this it?

emJ Company Make-up Brushes

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you can never have too many make-up brushes. Sometimes I review a product on here and I think 'how many XX do you really need?' but if you use make-up brushes, new ones are always welcome (means you are cleaning less often) and I've been looking forward to these for months. It was such a treat to receive some through the post pre-release and I'd like to say that I was sent this as I know the founder not necessarily to review.

I was a little bit anxious. I know how long these have been in the making. It's hard to be critical of something when you know the hard work behind the product but these brushes are absolutely fantastic. Big relief for me. Not ideal for you because you really should get some. I've used all three on myself and clients and they have gone straight onto my recommends list. Everyone I've used them on has asked me the make.

Skin Rehydration Favourites

Skin is a tricky mistress and even something simple like rehydrating dehydrated skin can be tricky. These are my favourites for when I'm doing a skin rehydration bootcamp but too much of a humectant (like hyaluronic acid) can draw moisture from deep in the skin towards the surface so if you have a dry skin type you may want to watch your usage on this.

All products and reviews are listed below. If you want to then come on and join the Facebook group.

Epoch Glacial Mud Mask

If you are a member of my Facebook group you may have seen me raving about, and wearing, this new mask that I've been trying. Now in the interests of transparency I am selling this mask. However, I also hope you know that that means I really love it. Otherwise I wouldn't bother selling it. So why do I like it so much?

Masks are everywhere, sheet masks, peel masks, charcoal masks, dry masks. There are so many to choose from some cheaper than a cup of coffee some more expensive than your favourite lipstick. How do you choose? I feel like I want so many different things from a mask I have no idea where to start. I want hydration, I want cleanliness, I want to be able to do stuff without looking like a 90s serial killer. The Epoch Glacial Mud Mask ticks all those boxes. But there's more.

Soap & Glory Brow Archery Sculpting Pencil & Gel

Sometime it's like your children hate you. I have particularly, smug-makingly well-behaved children. They are pretty good sleepers. They are funny, polite and not bottom of the class. You see, smug. But sometimes they will do something that convinces me that they have been sent to derail my existence, and that they good behaviour is just to ensure that I not only make plans for them to destroy but will have no idea what to do with them as they set fire to the restaurant we are in.

Soap & Glory Brow Archery Sculpting Pencil & Gel


So it was when I met the lovely PR team who not only represent Soap & Glory but, among others, Hourglass, makers of my beloved Ambient Lighting Powder. Ned must have been about 3 and Jim 9 months. Both well behaved and happy to watch the iPad, eat croissants and hang out. Having laid this stealthy groundwork they came with me to meet the lovely PR's in High Road House somewhere not hugely ok with kids. I batted not an eye lid at the thought of this. My children would be like adorable little bunnies.
