Fornasetti Profumi Giardino Segreto Candle

If you’ve ever watched Pam Ann,  you might remember her demonstrating how British Airways cabin crew can tell you to ‘f***k off’ with just one flash of their eyes, it’s just a single look. I’m 99% certain that the owls adorning the Fornasetti Profumi Giardino Segreto Candle are doing just that. I have a love affair with...

Jo Loves Shards of Cedar & Red Thyme

I find Jo Loves fragrances very hit and miss; they can be a complex concoction of sophistication and nuance, or, they can be a bit lazy and two-dimensional – not quite shaking off their 90’s heritage. Jo Loves Shards of Cedar & Red Thyme falls pretty much into the former yet still would by worn...

Cire Trudon Byron Candle: The Vivacious Spirit of The British Poet

Cire Trudon, Paris, really do show the fragrance industry how to make candles, they’re the best candles and Byron, new for 2014, is no exception. Cire Trudon is the oldest manufacturer maker in the world with their famous candle factory still in France to this day. The Mandle (man·dle \mændl\ n) Until recently, scented candles were most definitely in...

Superdrug Tea Tree Exfoliating Cream Wash & Tea Tree Nose Strips

Just as how so many people buy skincare, I saw and bought these Superdrug Tea Tree products because: the packaging caught my eye; the price was good and it was on offer. An often lethal combination. Remember, always ask yourself: why is it cheap and why are they trying to sell it quickly (on offer)?...

How to get rid of dark circles with La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Eyes Dark Circle Corrector

I’ve been sat on this La Roche-Posay skin care gem since around March (sorry) as I picked it up in Spain but only now is it launching and available here in the UK. La Roche-Posay have arrived extraordinarily late to the pigmentation and dark spot correction party, but their contribution is no less valid and in fact, better than many...

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum: The Best Serum for Men or Just a Load of Boswellox?

The Clinique Smart Serum (Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum) has interesting origins. Estée Lauder Companies has been sat on this for around 5 years. Why? Because it was created by accident whilst researching and developing Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector; but at the time Lauder was only looking for a pigmentation serum – the skin...
