Murad Age Reform Hydro-Glow Aqua Peel

Murad Age Reform Hydro-Glow Aqua Peel
Murad Age Reform Hydro-Glow Aqua Peel



Hiya Darlin

As you know I am a little bit obsessed by peeling/exfoliating and really obsessed by face masks, so this new release from Murad really hit the spot as soon as it arrived, I was pretty excited to try this out straight away and you may remember seeing it on my Instagram page a few weeks ago ?  the reason I mention this is that from that photo I got a couple of emails saying that the idea of a peel was scary and that the product looked very serious. 

Murad Age Reform Hydro-Glow Aqua Peel


 Firstly it is serious, Murad skincare is a serious brand which when you look into it has a solution for every type of skincare, and I have often found that Murad will release a product only to be copied by the mainstream months later, so they really are one to watch,  on the subject of peeling being scary, of course some clinical peels are !  and there is a downtime where you will look as though you are impersonating a tomato for a couple of days, this is nothing like that although it does the job there is no redness or downtime, so no need to be afraid at all :)

Murad Age Reform Hydro-Glow Aqua Peel


The treatment is designed to exfoliate / remove the dead skin cells from your face by using the large cotton swab that has been infused with a blend of Lactic and Glycolic Acids along with Botanical extracts, they work really gently as you wipe the swab across your face preparing it for the second stage which is the mask.  This is where the magic really happens !  a full face sheet mask that is infused with Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Extract and vitamin B3 that literally boosts moisture into your skin reducing the look of lines and wrinkles and leaving you fully hydrated and glowing, there is so much product in this mask I was able to smooth it into the skin on both my face neck and decolletage after the 20 minute removal time.

There are 4 applications in the box. I would 100% use this in preparation for a night out so that you are starting with the best base ever for make up.

Lucy Blenkinsopp Wellness Coach



Hiya Darlin

As you know I have gone through a bit of a rough patch health wise, major steroids for one condition, culminating in heart problems and hospital, anyway enough of that boring shizz, lets just say it left me in a pretty bad way weight and health wise, during this time I was watching the antics of a 57 year old woman on Instagram, Lucy Blenkinsopp, daily she posted positive quotes and amazing photo's of herself in various Yoga poses, I don't know how I came across her or why I followed her as I was in no fit state to want to copy her - they do say sometimes in life people enter your life for a reason !

I often commented on Lucy's posts and she enquired after my health, to be honest I had no clue what she did for a living, she just seemed like a nice woman. One day she sent me a DM ( private message) to say that when I felt up to it she would like to help me, at the time I thought oh that's sweet, and thought no more of it, a few weeks passed and I was feeling as though I wanted and knew needed to try and get my health into some sort of shape again as I pretty much looked like and felt like crap, those of you that saw me at events would have seen this bloated out of breath object dying of shame as nothing fitted properly and I was always moaning if there were stairs or any kind of walking involved, having to stop for breath every couple of yards was highly irritating lol, not least embarrassing. 




I don't know how it happened but Lucy and I communicated and she said she wanted to offer me three months of guidance, right- here is where I need to be honest ( sorry Luce)  I thought oh bleedin hell she is one of those Yoga nutters that is going to have me doing yet another crank diet or something, I kind of said yes please out of politeness as she had been so nice and supportive during my illnesses.  We booked in our first skype meeting and Lucy sent me a questionnaire to complete, lifestyle, diet etc.    p.s she did get me into Yoga ha ha

I was..........being honest again, kind of dreading it, I don't do skype and equally I really don't do well being told what to do !  we chatted for an hour and at the end of it I really liked her, you couldn't not, she has a positive infectious personality, and give her due, she is living proof that whatever it is she is doing clearly works, so having discussed everything with him indoors and my girls we decided I had nothing to lose by taking her up on her offer, plus the words NO DIET worked wonder for me.

This is the point where I want to tell you everything that I was guided to do but feel it would be giving away too much of Lucy's hard earned knowledge, lets just say, 12 weeks on, I can walk a hell of a lot further without getting out of breath, I am definitely happier, I no longer eat meat ( my choice ) him indoors even saw the positive effects Lucy Lou was having on me and has since given up meat, that was NEVER going to happen he was a total caveman.  And I am happy to report I am ONE STONE lighter and have dropped a couple of dress sizes. I actually don't feel as though I have made any major effort at all in 12 weeks, she didn't have me eating Lettuce and doing boot camp at 5a.m, it has all just fallen into place and the results are speaking for themselves.

What I would say about having a wellness coach is that it's not all about diet and exercise, she has been a confidant, a massive support, and my biggest cheerleader, she really does somehow bring out the best version of you, and maybe a version you didn't even know was in there.

If for any reason you are feeling that you need support in any way, get in touch with her, she offers a free 50 min session for you to see if you can work together.

Have a look at her website http://lucyblenkinsopp.co.uk/  have a chat with her and see what you think.

Ecocamel Orb Spa


Ecocamel  Orb Spa
Ecocamel  Orb Spa 


Hi Loves
I thought I had seen it all in terms of showers, power showers, rainfall showers etc, then along comes Ecocamel, like me you may not have heard of this brand, if you have and you own one kudos to you shower expert :)

Ecocamel  Orb Spa


Ecocamel  Orb Spa


Lets start with talking about the company Ecocamel, I am guessing here that the name comes from the fact that they are Eco friendly and that camels carry water ?  regardless it is a truly amazing concept when it comes to a fabulous showering experience and saving water ( good for the environment)  and saving money ( good for you )

Ecocamel  Orb Spa

Ecocamel  Orb Spa

Ecocamel  Orb Spa


I am pasting from the company website here, as they explain the technology behind the concept.

Aircore Technology

Put simply, air is forced into the water stream through a small hole at the base of the handle. When the water and air mix, this mixture spins around at high speed causing turbulence which increases the pressure inside the shower head. This forces the water out of the head with all the power of a conventional shower, but uses considerably less water.

Flow Regulator

The flow regulator provides an even flow whatever the bar pressure of your shower. This limits water flow to a maximum of 8 litres per minute saving you water and money!

Ecocamel  Orb Spa

Ecocamel  Orb Spa


I have been using mine for a while now I have the Orb Spa ® Vibra System, which has a removable vibrating head system for massaging, exfoliating and hydrating, what it does is give three different uses, the first as a shower head secondly for massage  by removing the handheld sonic massager, and third a massaging shower head.

If you thought you felt clean after your normal shower this will blow you away, my skin has never felt so clean, dead skin is literally whizzed away, by the soft rubber nodes, with it's 3 different massage speeds you can work away as vigorously or as gently as suits you, I always feel that I am improving the circulation on my hips and thighs helping reduce cellulite when it is on full speed., the power of your water is boosted without the need for any form of plumbing, literally unscrew your old shower head and pop on the Ecocamel, I'm not sure now having got used to this shower head that I could go back to a plain normal one, I love the super clean feeling and knowing my skin is totally free from dead skin and ready for moisturiser.

The company are so confident that we will love their products they give a 30 day money back guarantee. and free delivery

Babor Age-ID Serum Foundation

Babor Age-ID Serum Foundation
Babor Age-ID Serum Foundation


Hiya Gorgeous

I could not count the amount of foundations I own. I seem to spend a sheer fortune on trying the latest this that and whatever is deemed to be the next big thing, I also buy quite a few hoping to be able to write that I have found something great for my readers * you* often they are useless, sometimes they are ok but as yet I have never discovered the holy grail of foundations.

You may or may not of heard of a brand called Babor it is predominantly available in Spa's and Salons, and is possibly better know for it's skincare than makeup.  The journey began in 1956 funnily enough the year I was born, so you can see the brand has 60 years of experience behind it, founded in Germany by Dr. Micheal Babor , proudly German the company is committed to sustainability and respecting the environment with the use of green electricity and maximum respect for the environment, Babor never test on animals.

Babor Age-ID Serum Foundation


I have yet to try skincare from the brand as I wanted to try out their makeup first, I am so so happy I opted for this choice, as I have discovered the HOLY GRAIL in foundation for me.  My skin being mature, fairly normal with no problems other than the usual lack of moisture battle associated with ageing.  Let me start by saying I have never ever found a matte foundation that didn't leave me looking like the crypt keeper, I need glow not a flat looking base, equally I don't want so much moisture that my face slides off !

Babor Age-ID Serum Foundation


Babor Age-ID Serum foundation is by far the best foundation I have ever used in my makeup wearing years. It comes in a glass bottle complete with a pumped pipette system that draws just the right amount of fluid for your face, it is thin in texture but has the best pigment and literally smooths across your skin like liquid silk, the finish I would describe as semi matte if there were such a thing, it feels dry to the touch like matte but still remains glowing, I have never used anything like it in my life, the lasting power is beyond belief and it never ever sinks into lines or wrinkles, it just leaves a flawless looking base that will have you examining your face close up. The beauty of this product is that you can apply a super thin layer and get great instant coverage or you can build it in thin layers for a more finished evening look, it never looks thick or clogged which ever way you apply it.

The brand supply a small cosmetic sponge for application, I usually apply foundation either with a brush or a beauty blender but for this product my personal preference was the old fashioned method of using my fingers, you of course can use which ever method suits you best.

If you do decide to try this for yourself I would pick a shade lighter than you think you need, as it is highly pigmented.

Thoughts of an *older* woman




Hiya Darlins

I have no clue where these thoughts have come from so please bare with me as it may well end up as rambling. Actually I do, read this article by Jane at BritishBeautyBlogger one of the best things I have read in a long while.

When I started this blog in 2015 as many of you know I had retired from my business due to health, my youngest daughter had started blogging and we discussed the idea that I could not be the only older woman out there who was still interested in beauty and fashion, I had no clue what I was getting into, where it would end up or what I was doing even, it was just a fun thing to do, it still is.  My thoughts have led me to thinking this morning about how much age and ageing has become a "thing" since I started blogging, I had never given it a second thought really before, it's not something I worry about on a daily basis other than in terms of health, which is annoying as maybe if I had given more thought and care to it when I was younger I may not need to think about it now    ( lesson learnt ) 

Since blogging I have seen countless articles on celebrating age, and beauty for older women and it's fabulous but in all honesty I had never given age so much thought since I became a blogger.  In terms of ageism I guess I probably do encounter it as I have noticed a few brands have never contacted me to write for them, the ones that are deemed to be hip n trendy, that's OK it's not a problem, I do often get put into the anti ageing cream bracket, and that's OK  as well, as although I am not into trying to turn back time ( sang in my best Cher voice) 
I am though into looking the best I can for my 60 years, some days it works, others well................best not talk about them. by and large I can honestly say I don't think I am treated any differently to any other blogger, occasionally yes, I do get random emails specifically age related, but they just float off to my trash bin.  This whole age thing is becoming too much lol in fact, it's making me feel old.  I am lucky enough to go to some beautiful events at some fabulous places, which without blogging and working back up in town I would have missed out on, at no stage has anyone ever made me feel old or not part of the event, I have friends in the blogging world as young as 19 who I value immensely, possibly I find it easy to relate as my children and grandchildren are aged 41, 28, 24, 22, & 15 my world is surrounded by youth and often I have to remind them that they are younger than me when someone comes up with a brilliant plan that we can *all* do !! 

I think my thoughts behind this post come back to the old saying  "you are as young as you feel" and for most of us our minds don't match our bodies, I know I creak more when getting out of bed than I used to, also just jumping on a tube nowadays means I need to know where I am going in advance ha ha,  no more winging it for me !  But seriously I do think we can get so caught up in ageing being a thing we can forget to enjoy every stage of our lives to an extent.   I appreciate that health plays a major part for most people when it comes to ageing but I would place money on the fact that your mind still thinks in the same way as it did when you were younger, fortunately for us regardless of how many laughter lines or crows feet we have, our insides never truly grow up.

I did warn you this could become a ramble, so if you have read this far I thank and admire you :)

No Mo - Stache

No Mo - Stache
No Mo - Stache


Hi Loves
I recently discovered one of the best little kits I have seen in a long time, not only is it cute and handy, it is a mighty good product.

If you have the joy that is upper lip hair, you will know what a pain it is to book a salon visit to get it sorted, not to mention the delightful trip home with a cherry red top lip !   No Mo-Stache is a salon quality solution to use at home, holiday, anywhere.  This fabulous little tin contains 12 hypoallergenic waxed strips for the face, these are double sided so you only need to use one, I can hear you thinking "and ? " facial wax strips are not new, and you're right they aren't but having used them and having used these the difference is incredible, fortunately It is something I really don't need to do often, I do it more for the sake of foundation looking better, and if I am honest thought these were a gimmick, yep the tin is the cutest thing ever but I thought, like you, just wax strips !

No Mo - Stache


Having used them I am 100% converted, even when you go to a salon you find the same spot is often repeated to grab each and every last hair, No Mo-Stache for me was one application on each side of the upper lip and job done, the salon quality wax literally grabbed every tiny hair. The kit also contains Post waxing Aloe cream to soothe.

Lee Stafford Air Dry

Lee Stafford Air Dry



Hi Loves
Fancy saving time and effort ?  OK - you don't have to answer :)  of course you do.
Now if like me, you have to go through the whole blow dry and straightening routine with your hair a product that would allow you to skip all this effort would be good right ?

Lee Stafford have come up with a couple of solutions that could work for you in the Air Dry range, the first is  Lee Stafford Air (or blast ) Dry Foam the second Lee Stafford Air ( or blow ) Dry Cream LiTe. both of these products have been designed to save time when dealing with your mop.


Lee Stafford Air Dry


My hair is neither naturally straight or curly, best described as ( kinky ) ......ohh er missus
quite frankly without work it is a mess and looks quite horrific left to its own devices.  I was pleased to try both of these products as I thought they would allow me to have ( lazy ) days.  I started with the foam, applied to towel dried washed hair, a couple of pumps spread all the way through and left to dry naturally, it was actually OK, as you know I don't have the kind of hairstyle that would usually be left *undone* being a bob it's usually very straight and sleek, but this was actually OK, it looked soft and natural without any frizz, the lift and volume were fabulous and to give it credit it did make it look a bit wavy,  I think for me, this would be 100% perfect for holidays and the summer, sleek bobs don't fare well in the humidity and heat, plus I can't bear the whole styling thing when it's hot, so for that reason I would buy this and take it away with me, for home it's great for days when you really can't be bothered, but for me it wouldn't work for going out anywhere special.


Lee Stafford Air Dry


Lee Stafford Air Dry Cream LiTe worked really well for me, as a blow dry cream, you can of course use this on washed hair and left to dry, I tried both, left to dry naturally, it gave a smooth finish to the hair, you don't need a lot, and I would recommend using the majority on the ends not roots. a much sleeker finish than the foam and you can actually mould your hair into shape while it is still damp, this would be perfect for hair with some length to it, it did work on turning the ends of the bob under which was impressive.  I preferred it as a blow dry cream, just on the ends of washed hair it gave a smooth sleek finish which left my hair incredibly soft and shiny. 
Both of these products smell almost identical, with a light floral summery fragrance.

Leighton Denny Heritage Collection Event




Hi Darlins
I don't usually post about the events that I am lucky enough to attend, but the one I attended this week with Leighton Denny was so pretty I just had to share some images with you.  Of course I will be trying out the Heritage Range of Nail Polishes and write about them in due course, but for now, the afternoon tea hearing all about the range was held at a super pretty venue in NW London called Tea Party, it is a space literally designed just for events and has the prettiest decor ever as you will see in the photos.

So thank you Alex Silver and Leighton Denny for a beautiful couple of hours.
















So there you have it, a lovely afternoon spent with the loveliest girls, if you want to see more of these events, let me know and I will start to do more.

Murad Blemish Control Rapid Relief Spot Treatment

Murad Blemish Control Rapid Relief Spot Treatment


Hi Loves

Would you ever think that spots are a thing of the past ?  something that stayed in your teen years ?  Nice thought but no !  the devils plague us throughout our adult life, and I can remember that one huge beastie used to be my cue that the monthly visitor was coming.

Nowadays, I rarely suffer with them but on occasion one will rear it's ugly head and most usually when I am going somewhere nice.  Murad have come up with an *almost* instant solution in the form of Rapid Spot Relief Treatment.  When this arrived I had not a blemish in sight, and as bizarre as it sounds I was desperate for a spot - just so that I could test out the claims behind this treatment.  I didn't have to wait too long, within a week or so I was blessed with a hum dinger of a zit *result*  I could test out my cream, which isn't really a cream it is a clear gel formula that contains the highest strength 2% Salicylic Acid which exfoliates the skin to unclog the blocked pores, while killing the bacteria this gel treatment will reduce the redness and size of the spot withing 4 hours.

For a particularly angry spot it is recommended that you ice it for 5 minutes and then treat with the soothing cooling gel. 


Murad Blemish Control Rapid Relief Spot Treatment


This treatment can be used directly on the affected area in a thin layer, allowed to dry and then concealed with your chosen concealer and or foundation, the gel will not peel or flake and will continue to do it's work while you go about your day.

Bronnley Pink Peony & Rhubarb - Iris & Wild Cassis

Bronnley Pink Peony & Rhubarb -  Iris & Wild Cassis



Hiya Gorgeous
I have had the pleasure of adding to my recent Bronnley Fragrances, Pink Peony & Rhubarb & Iris and Wild Cassis with a selection of bath and body products.  I don't know about you but I love using matching products when it comes to fragrance ranges, and Bronnley do this beautifully with collections that compliment each other. You can read my thoughts on the Fragrances here



Bronnley Pink Peony & Rhubarb -  Iris & Wild Cassis

Bronnley Pink Peony & Rhubarb -  Iris & Wild Cassis

Bronnley Hand Soap.
Let's start with Hand Soap, I only ever use soap in the bathroom for hand washing, as old fashioned as it is.  I love having a nice bar of hand soap, not only do you get clean hands you also get a gorgeous smelling bathroom, of course any old bar of soap would suffice but you wouldn't get a bar that gives you fragrance down to the very last slither, creamy and fragrant for very little money it feels like luxury and something quite special. These Hand Soaps are available individually or as sets, also they are included in some fabulous gift sets.


Bronnley Pink Peony & Rhubarb -  Iris & Wild Cassis


Bronnley Pink Peony & Rhubarb Hand & Nail Cream.
This hand and nail cream not only smells amazing, it softens and moisturises your hands as well as conditioning nails and cuticles. Rich but easily absorbed the cream is enriched with Shea Butter which will leave you with soft, fragrant and beautifully conditioned hands regardless of how much wear and tear you give them. On a side note, the packaging is so beautiful you won't mind it displayed by the kitchen sink.


Bronnley Pink Peony & Rhubarb -  Iris & Wild Cassis


Bronnley Iris & Wild Cassis Bath & Shower Gel.
Not only will this Bath & Shower Gel fill the bathroom with the most amazing fragrance, your skin is left feeling soft, moisturised and fragrant, although this feels absolutely luxurious and special to use it is priced to be used on a daily basis, so that every day feels special.


Bronnley Pink Peony & Rhubarb -  Iris & Wild Cassis


And to follow on the theme there is 

Bronnley Iris & Wild Cassis Body Lotion.

A beautifully lightweight fragrant body lotion that absorbs into the skin easily, it will not leave a greasy residue, meaning that getting dressed or going to bed almost immediately is not a problem, there is nothing worse than hanging around waiting for creams and lotions to absorb, especially if your bathroom isn't tropical.

To sum up, I honestly think that Bronnley have got everything just right at the moment, if you still think of them as fuddy duddy and a bit dated, think again.  This is a top of the range fragrance collection at prices that are more than reasonable, the fragrances have an amazing lasting power, unlike some others at 4 times the price in the best English fragrance market. Seriously worth a sniff if you come across them while shopping.

I wrote a comparison post here.

XIP Professional Platinum Passion Eyeshadow Collection



Hiya gorgeous face

You will have seen me recently write about the British Makeup brand XIP Professional, if not you can catch up here.

This time I have been dipping into what I would say is one of the nicest, mo practical palettes I have had the pleasure of using, don't for one second confuse nice and practical with dull ! - oh no.  Far from it. This amazing bit of kit contains the most beautiful mix of shimmer and mattes, which is something I particularly like as I hate it when a palette is all one thing, either all matte or all shimmer.

I love that XIP stands for Xtremely Important Person, it just makes me smile and fits so well with this shade collection as they are perfect if you want a played down subtle look for day, or to really bling it up for the evening when you are prancing around being an XIP ! - I am a fab prancer after a Vino.




12 highly pigmented shades that are formulated with something called nylon-12 I have no clue what it is but what I do know is that it makes the shadow last and blend beautifully with a super soft silky texture, giving the shadow the ability to absorb oil and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. You need the smallest amount of the butter soft  shades to get a great impact, there is no fallout with these shadows making them easy to apply even for a novice. I honestly can't sing it's praises any higher, I absolutely love it !

I wore these shades all day on a recent shopping day, in some serious heat -England's cranky on/off Summer and found that rather than wearing off or melting the powders stayed in place and looked as good when I got home as they did when I left the house, this never happens to me, quite often I can't even tell that I had eye make up on at all after a day out. 





Starting in the top right corner the shades are:

Dark gold, black, smokey grey shimmer, silver shimmer, warm copper, milk chocolate brown, rich chocolate brown, soft peach, light gold, baby pink, rosy pink, champagne shimmer.

The recyclable palette also comes with a super soft double ended application brush that picks up pigment without any fallout. I also found it to be a really good practical size, unlike those horrid little sponge applicators you often find lurking in palettes. Yes Dior I am looking at you !

XIP Professional Pink Satin Blissful Blusher & Brush

XIP Professional Pink Satin Blissful Blusher & Brush





As you know I have written about a few products now from the XIP Professional range,  Professional Golden Touch Sculpting Palette,    Opal Black Mascara, Platinum Passion Eyeshadow Collection  this time round it's the XIP Professional Pink Satin Blissful Blusher & Brush.


XIP Professional Pink Satin Blissful Blusher & Brush



Once again this genius Dutch brand has come up with a winner, you would be forgiven for taking one look at the colour of this blusher and instantly thinking, oh no, way too bright,  trust  me I had the same thought, but dig a little deeper and you find a beautiful delicate shade of pink that would be flattering to all complexions, as always with XIP Professional the product is highly pigmented so a little goes a long way, the powder is butter soft and applies easily, just enough to give you the perfect healthy glow, coupled with the soft sheen highlighter this really is a first class duo, the highlighter gives a soft subtle sheen rather than a glitter ball, can be seen from space effect that no one wants, it will just bring a touch of candle light glow to where natural light would hit the face.


XIP Professional Pink Satin Blissful Blusher & Brush


Whilst the whole XIP range is professional makeup you don't need to be a makeup artist to use it, even a novice would find these easy to apply, and the brand have cleverly put a video instruction clip on their site which can be seen here also with it's especially designed brush you don't need to search for the right tool to use, you have it immediately to hand.



XIP Professional Pink Satin Blissful Blusher & Brush

On a personal note I tend to prefer cream or liquid blush as I often find that powders do not flatter my mature skin, this however has been a joy to use, with it's butter soft consistency it didn't highlight any lines or wrinkles, dry out or look powdery at all, in fact it has become a bit of a  "go to" in my makeup kit as it's so flattering and literally lifts and brightens your whole look, even on the dullest of days. 


Check out the whole XIP Professional Range Here
