Lynx Peace 5

Lynx Peace: Make Love Not War

Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived. I don’t often pull quotes from the Captain Jean-Luc Picard basket [above] but when I do, I choose ‘em well. It’s not the big things in life that always make the difference, but the random acts of kindness… Continue Reading

L'Occitane Douceur De Creme Featured

L’Occitane Ultra Soft Cream Collection

Apologies it took a while to get onto this one, I received them before going to Spain and it all just got a tad waylaid. The L’Occitane Ultra Soft Cream Collection are a set of 3, 10% shea butter body creams with fragrances created by resident nose, Karine Dubreuil. The trio are Vanilla Bouquet (my favourite); Rose Heart and Zesty Lime. The Shea butter is from Burkina Faso, harvested in a sustainable and fair trade partnership with… Continue Reading

Hand Care Amnesty

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Care Amnesty

I’m not usually one for just posting anything that pops into my inbox, if I was, Manface would be full of knitted scarves, female dryness treatments and Russian brides (a nice little insight into my inbox right there). However, something came in today that I loved the idea of and I think it’s fabulous when brands do promotions such as this. Crabtree & Evelyn are running a promotion whereby you take your existing handcream, whatever… Continue Reading

Jo Loves Green Orange & Coriander A Bath Cologne

Jo Loves Green Orange & Coriander Bath Cologne

I wanted to create a product that looked and felt the same as pouring cologne into the bath. After two years of trying, I have finally pioneered and perfected an entirely new luxury bathing experience. I wanted to sit writing this fresh; feeling fresh and with the Jo Loves Green Orange & Coriander Bath Cologne fresh in my mind. So, I’m sat here in my bath robe and wet hair writing this. Now, you know… Continue Reading

Argan Plus Precious Oil Elixir

Argan 5 + Precious Oil Eixir

Every time I see body oils, little sirens go off in my head as I can just picture my skin and face breaking out into a greasy, spotty mess; I can’t be the only one that things this? So, I’ll have to be honest to say that I put off reviewing Argan Plus Precious Oil Elixir for a good few weeks – I kind of wish I hadn’t. Argan Plus Precious Oil Elixir is a… Continue Reading


Kiehl’s Creme de Corps by Eric Haze

Merry Christmas! Not that far away now and I’m getting ultra excited; I love visiting packed stores to be given abominable customer service by under-qualified and brain-dead Christmas temps. Anyway… here’s something lovely from Kiehl’s to lift our spirits. This year Kiehl’s have had the Creme de Corps limited edition collection designed by New York graffiti artist Eric Haze! If you’re unfamiliar with Creme de Corps, it’s a gorgeous, stunning, superb and just fabulous body moisturiser from… Continue Reading

Kiko Makeup Milano Self Tanning Drops

KIKO Self Tanning Rapid Drops

A fab little find from this summer that I can’t believe took me this long to blog about although you’ll undoubtedly know by now what an enormous KIKO fan I am (Mr. KIKO at your service). KIKO Self Tanning Rapid Drops are designed to give quick and easy, sunless tanning for face, just by squeezing and applying a small amount and spreading on with your fingers. Despite what KIKO suggest, I actually found that the… Continue Reading

Tom Ford Private Blend Tobacco Oud

When I was moving to Manchester for University at 18, the second week in, my mum came to visit and we went shopping at Selfridges Exchange square (my first shopping trip in Manchester and my first ever trip to Selfridges). We came across the teeny-tiny Tom Ford Private Blend counter and we discovered a range of fragrances neither of us had known before and I fell in love with Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. At £115… Continue Reading

Murad Anti Blemish

Murad Blemish Control Body Wash & Clarifying Body Spray

With no exaggeration here whatsoever, guys of the world, we have been saved. Legne, armne, bacne, assne – bodily acne is a real concern for guys. We don’t often talk about it but it’s something you, my lovely readers, have emailed me about on a few occasions and I’ll hold up my hands and say it’s something I have to combat myself from time to time, mainly on my upper arms. It often occurs if… Continue Reading

Halloween Lush 2

Halloween 2013 with LUSH

As C*******s is only 12 weeks away, this means that Halloween is just around the corner. I’ve never done anything big for Halloween but at the same time, I never let it pass me by. The local kids where I live all come around tick or treating so last year I dressed up into my old Clinique Labcoat, slicked my hair down, whitened my face and smeared my eyes with evil dark shadow and liner;… Continue Reading

Lush Travel and Festivals

Travel & Festivals with LUSH

With people still jetting off on holiday and the big festival weekend quickly approaching, I thought I’d share a selection of great travel essentials from LUSH. If you’re travelling anywhere with hard, mineralised water like Spain or the south of France for example, a shampoo that can strip all that rubbish our your hair is essential whilst repairing any damage caused by the sun and chlorine filled pool water. If you follow me on Twitter… Continue Reading

Burt’s Bees Tips and Toes Kit

Yesterday I was pottering around Huddersfield, just to get out the house and do anything other than sit at my desk chair. It was in Boots where I was looking for hand creams and other such bits that it hit me, I’ve never tried Burt’s Bees products before. Now for someone with such a massive addiction to honey, huge in fact, I felt a bit ridiculous, particularly as I’ve seen the brand favourably reviewed all… Continue Reading

L'Oreal Men Expert Shirt Protect Anti-Perspirant Anti-Marks 100 perfect Group

L’Oréal Men Expert Shirt Protect Deodorant

L’Oréal have joined the invisible-deodorant game with L’Oréal Men Expert Shirt Protect Deodorant, a fantastic duo of spray and rollerball deodorants. You may have recently read about my love of the Nivea Men Invisible For Black & White Deodorant, a great deodorant that doesn’t leave white marks on my darks and yellow marks on my whites; well I have to say, it’s hard to decide between two fantastic products. The smell of L’Oréal Men Expert… Continue Reading
