Reparative Skin Care by Twelve Beauty

When I first tried Twelve Beauty (2 years ago now) I wasn’t blown away by how it made my skin feel. Although the formulations are exquisite, at the time it was far too rich and more than my skin needed. Two birthdays and a boat-load of stress later, my skin needs more these days! I’m still blemish and shine prone, but increasingly more dehydrated – enter Twelve Skin Care.

LAB SERIES For Men: Do you even lift, bro?

I have a strange relationship with LAB SERIES products. Until now, after all this time, I’ve just not been able to get into the brand. A mixture of the fragrance they use in some of their products; their seemingly strange distribution/availability; odd naming conventions with “V MAXIMUM LS X TECH P PRO POWER ULTRA… lip balm”; and finally the a website that seems to ignore so many skin types and concerns. It all just seems overly complicated and like they’re using market survey data from the seventies that says a man will only buy something if it’s sounds like a race car.

The Renaissance of The Body Shop: Drops of Youth Cream and Essence Lotion

I never thought I’d be writing this in a million years but over the last 2 years, The Body Shop seems to be undergoing some kind of renaissance, hitting it out the park with almost every-single launch. Their skin care is becoming unrecognisable – in a very good way. For a historical introduction to some of this skin care, check out my rave review of their Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser and Glow Enhancer from last Summer.
