Superdrug B. Face Mask Range



Hi Loves
what is it about a face mask that makes you feel as though you are treating yourself to something special? It's probably the "me" time, even though you are probably buzzing around doing chores while it's on!  That 10-15 minutes is a mini treat that we all deserve.

B. Is For Beautiful from Superdrug, which you have seen me talk about before has added to it's fabulous Cruelty Free, Vegan collection in the form of 4 amazing masks that treat your skin whatever it's needs are, and the fact that they come in these little single use pods as well as a full sized jar, means you can multi-mask to your hearts content, treating different areas of the face with different needs.  It also allows you try out the masks before committing to a full size.



B. Detoxed Clay Face Mask 

Suitable for all skin types, the combination of clay and charcoal really does draw out blocked pores and reduce excess sebum,  apply for 10-15 minutes allow the mask to do it's work, you will actually feel it pulling as it dries, rinse off with warm water. Your skin is left feeling super clean.

Superdrug B. Face Mask Range


B. Purified Clay Face Mask

Suitable for all skin types. The natural Kaolin clay in this mask has a deeply purifying quality to clean out pores, while Eucalyptus extract purifies, leaving the skin mattified and shine free. 10-15 minutes on face and neck, rinse with warm water and you are good to go, I would use this one before getting ready for a night out to ensure I was shine free.



Superdrug B. Face Mask Range


B. Glowing Clay Face Mask

Suitable for all skin types. This Gorgeous pink formula brightens, refines and softens the skin, the inclusion of finely ground Apricot granules gently polish the skin removing dead and dry skin cells which leave the skin look dull. 10-15 minutes on face and neck, try and relax if you can!  rinse off with warm water, you will notice a brighter more lively looking skin tone.

Superdrug B. Face Mask Range

B. Hydrated Leave On Face Mask


Suitable for all skin types. This is really self explanatory, you leave it on.  I leave mine on sometimes while I am pottering around doing housework, but for deep serious hydration I sleep in this mask and rinse it off in the morning, it's super hydrating and will leave you with soft nourished skin. Contains Squalane & Babassu Oil.

These little 10ml Pods are a great way of having your weekly mask to hand, although I have to confess to masking 3-4 times a week!  The full size Jars currently have £3.00 off at Superdrug

Christian Breton Age Priority De Luxe Gold Serum


Christian Breton Age Priority De Luxe Gold Serum
Christian Breton Age Priority De Luxe Gold Serum




Hiya Darlins


For me this is probably one of the longest times I have ever tested out a product (over 3 months)  the reason being is that this serum had a claim that only time would prove if it worked or not!

I was not familiar with the history of Christian Breton and wanted to know more;

The story begins in the 1960s, in France, when Christian Breton’s mother, an eminent scientist and genetic specialist, headed an elite team of researchers. The question: “How can Genetic and DNA-RNA help cure skin diseases?” Fifteen years after the project began; Dr BRETON and her team had found several answers. Being immersed in the beauty care’s sector since his childhood, Christian BRETON had the idea to take the benefit of his mother’s research and results to launch his cosmetics company so that the women, worried by the health of the skin, can finally benefit from the last science’s progress.


Christian Breton Age Priority De Luxe Gold Serum



Christian Breton Age Priority De Luxe Gold Serum
Christian Breton Age Priority De Luxe Gold Serum


Christian Breton Age Priority  De Luxe Gold Serum contains Caviar extract and Colloidal Gold, said to even out skin tone, add glow and minimise fine lines and wrinkles.  This 30ml Glass bottle comes in the high end of skin care and is priced accordingly, so you need to know if it does all that it claims. I have only just discovered the price and had I have known I may have used it less, that said the whole purpose of the review is to USE the product to it's best ability regardless of price.  Like I said I have used this now for months, and my main reason was to actually see if it worked on skin discolouration, I was one of those naughties that cooked in the sun without proper protection, leaving me signs of pigmentation. this serum has 100% improved the even tone of my skin, to the point where it isn't a problem for me to go foundation free, I would say that fine lines are most definitely softened and my skin really does have more of a glow. I really, really like this, and would thoroughly recommend it for mature skin. At the end of the day, French women know a thing or two about skincare and with Christian Breton being a household name in France I tend to believe them.

The WoolRoom Sheepskin Rug


The WoolRoom Sheepskin Rug
The WoolRoom Sheepskin Rug


Hi Loves
As you all know I am a huge fan of the WoolRoom products, I sleep on a WoolRoom bed  and use WoolRoom Bedding which I love. These led me onto the accessories section of the website which hosts a sumptuous collection of pure wool throws, blankets, nursery items and home accessories for the cosiest rooms ever, and with the knowledge that pure wool is allergy free you know you are safe from any dust mites or nasties.

The WoolRoom Sheepskin Rug




I am now the proud and happy owner of the worlds most luxurious sheepskin rug ever!  My rug is so gorgeous that I can''t actually bring myself to walk on it, which I know is daft, however it looks fabulous draped across one of the chairs in the lounge and is heavenly to snuggle up on with a book. 

The WoolRoom Sheepskin Rug

I am now tempted by some cushions to throw on the sofa opposite my chair rug! The only problem being id that the room will be so flipping cosy I will never want to leave the house  and I will become known as the sheepskin hermit!

Vist the WoolRoom Here and see for yourself. 

How could you possibly resist?

SUPERDRUG NEW Vitamin C Detox Skincare

SUPERDRUG NEW Vitamin C Detox Skincare
SUPERDRUG NEW Vitamin C Detox Skincare

Hi Loves
With the threatened weather warnings we are having at the moment,  I am pleased to bring a bit of sunshine into your daily skincare routine courtesy of our friends at Superdrug.com. Often things appear in the post that have me thinking "here we go, another novelty"  and I have to be honest and  say I raised an eyebrow at Jam face mask! However, I have been seriously keen to try out this new range and the higher end skincare brands seem to have gone Vitamin C crazy and once again Superdrug are there with an affordable alternative. Which I have to say often as not perform as well as, if not better than some!

This NEW range of skincare is  the Vitamin C Detox  Skincare Range. which comprises of


  • Vitamin C Refreshing Facial Cleanser
  • Vitamin C Revitalising Jam Mask
  • Vitamin C Nourishing Gel Moisturiser
  • Vitamin C Eye Cream
  • Vitamin C Booster

I have three of these products to share with you here,

Superdrug Vitamin C Refreshing Facial Cleanser 150ml


The first thing that hits you is the wake up citrus fragrance of this cleanser, applied to damp skin it's a real multi-tasker not only does it cleanse it gently exfoliates with the Orange peel, Goji Berry and Kakadu Plum extracts. It leaves your skin feeling super fresh and clean without any redness or tight feeling.  I used this as a stand alone cleanser in the morning, which was a fab wake up boost, and as a second cleanse in the evening after first using Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser, which as you can see from this blog post I first tried in June 2015.
Kakadu Plum - Has the highest concentration of Vitamin C of any food on the planet.
Goji Berry - Known to induce calm and wellbeing.



SUPERDRUG NEW Vitamin C Detox SkincareSUPERDRUG NEW Vitamin C Detox Skincare
SUPERDRUG NEW Vitamin C Detox Skincare Revitalising Jam Face Mask


Superdrug Vitamin C Revitalising Jam Face Mask 75ml

THIS  I was dubious about, honestly I thought it was some kind of novelty item, I mean who puts Jam on their face on purpose?  But for you my gorgeous reader- I did.
And I am glad I did, it's bloody amazing!  Let me start by saying that if you have an aversion to sticky, and I know some people do, then this is not for you.  It really is like Jam, you damp your face, smear on your jam, leave for 10-15 minutes while your jam warms up ( you may actually feel this) then rinse off.  The Orange peel, Goji Berry extract and sugar literally whip off any dead skin leaving you soft and glowing, while the Kakadu Plum extract infuses you with Vitamin C.
I LOVE this, my skin was left feeling and looking soft and alive, and I am so glad my first impressions were wrong, I will be Jammin for a long time to come I think.



SUPERDRUG NEW Vitamin C Detox Skincare
SUPERDRUG NEW Vitamin C Detox Skincare Nourishing Gel Moisturiser

Superdrug Vitamin C Nourishing Gel Moisturiser 75ml

Now!  this is where you really get the full citrus blast, the fragrance on this gel is out of this world.  A light gel/lotion type formula, disappears into your skin as though it is refuelling a desperate thirst. What I was particularly impressed with was that I held the moisture all day, at no point did my skin feel dry or tight, It was comfortable with no greasy residue, in fact it leaves you with mattified skin ready for foundation with no primer. win win.

There are a few reasons I am crazy for these products, firstly I am addicted to anything with a citrus smell, I totally love a bargain, the jars are 75ml rather than the standard 50ml. The Products work!

Vegan and Vegetarian Friendly
Cruelty Free
Recyclable packaging.

Vitamin C Detox Skincare can be found by clicking the link, Currently on offer and also with the bonus of a free gift if you buy three products.

PUR On Point Lip Liner

PUR On Point Lip Liner


Hiya Darlins
I am continuing with my love of PUR Cosmetics by trialling the impressive range of Lip Liner shades. It's a funny thing how years ago Lip Liner was seldom used, or when it was you had the definite contrast of a light lipstick with a darker liner, nowadays Lip Liners are as much part of our daily make up routine as mascara, and I for one couldn't imagine making up without one, I think no matter what your age every ones lips benefit from a little definition and these PUR On Point Lip Liners cover every angle.

I recently wrote about the PUR Quick Pro Lip Kit which I loved and found to be incredible value.

These Lip Liners are infused with plumping peptide with gives the outline of the lips a fuller plumper look, prevents feathering of lipstick and gives you the perfect definition and guideline which is especially helpful if you are using dark shades that need a more precision application.  I have actually used these pencils as lipsticks as the formula is both moisturising and non drying. the lid of the twist up pencil has a handy hidden sharpener, these apply easily and are long lasting, the beauty of PUR Cosmetics is that you know only the best paraben free ingredients are being applied to your face, which have never been tested on animals, and are suitable for vegans.


  • Paraben Free
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Suitable for any skin type

These are super comfortable Matte Liquids in a soft mousse formula that really do last the day, they never look dry or flaky and leave you feeling as though you are wearing nothing at all.

Struggling With Routine

Hi Loves
Yesterday as you will know if you follow me on Instagram, saw me adding yet another Ikea storage cupboard to the office. It got me thinking at how those images could have had me looking perfectly  organised and in control. Nothing could be further from the the truth, I fly through life by the seat of my pants, and I honestly cannot fathom why.

I have days where I get up before the birds, go into the office at home and work like a mad woman, leaving exhausted but feeling smug, I then proceed to tell everyone how good I have been and how good it felt, stating that this is now my new routine and I am going to be on top of things LOL. Only to be found the following day doing housework, cooking up some random recipe, pottering around, spending an easy 2 hours on the phone to one of my blogging buddies and generally wasting the day.  I go to bed, regretting wasting yet another day and thinking tomorrow I will get organised. I really would like a shrink to analyse my confused brain to tell me why I fight with routine so much. Maybe, having bought up my children and being self employed for the large part of my life had me chained to so much routine that at this old age I am rebelling against it? I envy those who are in control, although my mind says, ah that's boring I would actually quite like to be boring and have some flipping routine.  Him indoors, gets up before dawn, walks the dog at the same time, leaves the house at the same time, returns at the same time. In fact you could time his actions, where, I on the other hand fight routine every step of the way.  Is it just me?  am I odd? when life would be so much better with structure, why do I let it fly out of the window?  I wish I knew the answer.

Maybe this is something that only self employed people suffer with?  when you work you don't have choices, but now I have choices why are they the wrong ones? OR ARE THEY?  maybe I should just accept that this is me, this is now my normal. The postman should not expect to see me dressed and made up in the mornings, and my fridge should not expect to be cleaned on a certain day, maybe I should just go with the flow and let life just do it's thing?  all this would be great if I were not a control freak, which is totally contradictory to how my life runs now.

You know what?  I have no clue why I have written this post, maybe I started out thinking I could justify being unorganised with my time. But no, I have just been left feeling guilty again, thinking I need to get into the office and continue filling the Ikea storage!  Hey Ho -  I guess as they say "all the saints are in heaven" 

How do you cope with being on top of things? any hints would be gratefully received, failing that

JOJO SIWA Be You Eau de Parfum






Hi Loves
You may or may not have heard of JoJo Siwa, I confess to not having heard of her, that said at my age (61) I don't keep up too much with TV or what the youngsters are into. When I spoke to my girls they were hysterical at the thought that I didn't know the girl with *BOWS*  from the TV show Dance Moms, so obviously I had to do do some research as I hate being out of the loop.  All I can say is WOW this little one is a cult phenomenon and actually I can see why, she has the most infectious personality and I can see why all the girls ages 8-14 would want to be her bestie.



Here is a brief rundown of what this little star has achieved so far.

She was just 12 years old when she won a nations heart with her over-sized hair bows and bagful of talent on the TV show Dance Moms.  Fast forward a few years and JoJo Siwa has become one of the biggest Internet sensations, with her YouTube Vlog channel regularly reaching a mere 90million + views, and has an army of followers worldwide.
At just 14 years old she’s a singer, dancer, actress and entrepreneur with a complete range of Jo Jo merchandise and many awards to her name.  She won the Kids Choice Award for 2017 and was named Digital Star for the year alongside Kim Kardashian and Patrick Starr – and it seems there is just no stopping her!


I recently read a blog post from Countryheartandhome where her girls were addicted to JoJo and were discovering merchandise.
When I was offered the perfume to try out, I got in touch with my youngest Granddaughter Mya (15) who knew everything there was to know about Jo Jo and said a quick "yes please" let me just say, this kid is fussy, her perfume range includes designers such as Mark Jacobs. Also I can 100% rely on Mya to tell it like it is!
JoJo Siwa Be You. Eau de Parfum
First impression was that she loved the bottle, and of course it's pink! on spritzing found the fragrance really sweet and not an instant hit, however within moments it settled down to a gorgeous delicate floral which dare I say is slightly sophisticated. I can totally see this fragrance being "borrowed" by Mums. Clean and fresh with a definite girlie vibe this has become a firm favourite.
I love how young girls nowadays are their own people. When I was young there was not a chance of having your own fragrance until you were old enough to buy Charlie, and no way was my Mum dabbing me with Je Riviens Evening in Paris lol.

All in all I would call this a winner, I am now down with the kids, Mya is happy and smelling fabulous and I have been able to share this with you for daughters and granddaughters.

GOSH Turn Me On Mascara | GOSH Fake It Primer





Hiya Darlins
Every new season I look forward to the new releases from GOSH Copenhagen, I truly think this brand needs a huge amount of attention, they are innovative quality products at a really good price.

I do have a few things to share with you from this years SS18 range which I will be featuring, but a couple of pieces instantly jumped out at me.  Firstly the new shades in




Gosh Lip Oil
 I wrote about these when Gosh first released them in 2016. Once again they surpass brands at 4 x the price and as always these are totally on trend, this time in holographic shades, there are three in the collection, show here are 007 Crystal Star and 006 Flower Essence. Interestingly these are the same price as 2016, bet not many brands could claim to be so competitive in the price range!




Gosh Fake It! Lash Primer


This primer not only adds thickness and length to your lashes it separates and conditions at the same time thanks to the addition of Hyaluronic acid.
My lashes are blonde/clear so I don't usually notice too much if I use a primer, but this one is grey! I instantly saw a dramatic difference in the length and fullness of the lashes, can be used under any mascara. I tested it with ........





Gosh Turn Me On Vibrating Mascara

I was desperate to try this as I remembered many years ago another vibrating mascara being on the market, I can't for the life of me remember who made it, but I do remember it flinging black spots all over the eye and under eye area, it was a disaster!  Things have come a long way, and I tested this out with trepidation. To my delight the buzzing wand is fabulous, it was almost like having the mascara applied for you, the sensation is a little strange at first, and to be fair I did think it would be just a novelty item, but it worked! each lash was coated perfectly both top and bottom, I think a delicate hand is definitely needed as I got a bit over confident with the second eye and blobbed. Overall I really like this, one thing is for sure, it definitely saves time!

Gosh Turn Me On Vibrating Mascara is currently available, the release date on the new SS18 collection is February 2018 so the items will filter through and become available this month.


The combination of Gosh Fake It and Gosh Turn Me On resulted in pretty good looking lashes, longer, fuller but more than anything separated with no clumps.

DIRECTIONS 

 Each Morning & Evening
 STEP 1:  Apply Balancing Cleanser onto the face, neck and decolletage, adding a few drops of water to create a creamy emulsion. Continue to massage gently then rinse off with lots of warm water or a warm, damp face cloth. Double cleanse as required if you’re wearing stubborn, colourfast makeup.

STEP 2:  Apply Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream to clean, dry skin using the applicator wand to glide a small amount of cream around the orbital bone. Gently press around the periocular area using your ring fingers. A gentle patting motion will stimulate micro-circulation to help improve the appearance of puffiness and dark circles.

STEP 3:  Apply your preferred serum and day/night cream.

 Each Alternate Evening
 STEP 1:  Apply Balancing Cleanser onto the face, neck and decolletage, adding a few drops of water to create a creamy emulsion. Continue to massage gently then rinse off with lots of warm water or a warm, damp face cloth. Double cleanse as required if you’re wearing stubborn, colourfast makeup.

STEP 2:  Apply Liquid Gold using a cotton pad to the face, neck and decolletage, avoiding the eye and lip areas. A slight tingling sensation may be experienced.
For maximum benefit leave on overnight and do not follow with a night cream, but allow Liquid Gold to work 'uninterrupted' while you sleep.

STEP 3:  Apply Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream to clean, dry skin using the applicator wand to glide a small amount of cream around the orbital bone. Gently press around the periocular area using your ring fingers. A gentle patting motion will stimulate micro-circulation to help reduce the appearance of puffiness.

TOM’S SALON TIPS
• If your skin is sensitive or if you have never used Glycolic products before then I  recommend you add Liquid Gold gradually to your homecare routine, using the product   1-2 nights a week. You can even begin by applying Liquid Gold using a cotton pad, which has been dampened with a little warm water. Do this for the first couple of weeks   and then graduate to applying the product using a dry cotton pad.

• Use Liquid Gold on three alternate nights each week and use your favourite serums, facial oils or moisturisers the following evening.

• Add Liquid Gold to any existing skincare routine to supercharge your results.  Reducing  the build-up of dead cells means that your other serums, masks and creams will penetrate more effectively.

• I recommend you use a daily moisturiser with an SPF of at least factor 15 when using  Glycolic products.

• Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream makes a fantastic daily primer for eye shadow and under-eye concealer. 

• Keep your Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream in the fridge so it’s extra cooling and feels more tightening on the skin!

• And here’s one for the guys! If you have coarse hair, stubble or other facial furniture you can forgo the cotton pad and dispense five drops of Liquid Gold into the palms of your hands, then simply pat the solution into the face and neck.

NUDESTIX Lip & Cheek Colour

NUDESTIX Lip & Cheek Colour
NUDESTIX Lip & Cheek Colour 



Have you heard the buzz about Nudestix?

If not let me give you the quick SP.  Former M.A.C product developer and Co Founder of of Cover FX.  Jenny Frankel took a break from her career to spend more time with her daughters while they were growing up. Watching her beautiful girls and their natural style make up habits was the inspiration behind Nudestix. A range of make up pencils that allow you to *Go Nude But Better*  



Photo Courtesy of Infuenster.com

Jenny comments
“It doesn’t matter if someone’s come out with the latest blue—they don’t do colour. I noticed that they spent quite a bit more time sleeping in or checking Instagram than putting on their makeup. If it took more than three to five minutes, they weren’t doing it,” says Frankel, 43. “Their idea of beauty was much more about lifestyle—very easy lifestyle. Taylor rarely brushes her hair, and that’s OK. It’s about the messy vibes and the wraparound scarf… it’s the whole look. They don’t do precision.”

NUDESTIX Lip & Cheek Colour
NUDESTIX Lip & Cheek Colour 



This range of "Stix" is bang on trend and perfect for those who don't want to carry around a luggage sized make up bag.  Jenny is the company founder, while Taylor and Ally sit alongside Mum as co-founders in this trio of what can only be described as natural beauties.

I need to say here that while these sticks are current and trendy, don't be fooled into thinking they are "Youth exclusive"  as you know I am an old bird, and some days you really don't want or need a full face, however we all need a little help, and the Lip & Cheek Pencils are simply perfect for a flush of colour, on lips and cheeks. 

The range is vast,  from correcting pencils to eye sticks, foundation and mascara. I honestly think once you start down this route it could become habit forming. The entire range can be seen at Cult Beauty


NUDESTIX Lip & Cheek Colour

I tried Lip & Cheek Pencil in Love it comes with it's own tin and sharpener, which to be honest is all you need to carry in your bag should you need a quick touch up.  the creamy formula blends well and has a good lasting power on the lips,  Also the beauty of these is there is no need for a separate lip liner. A couple of stripes blended on to your cheeks and you are good to go.  My Nan used to attack me this way with her lippie if she considered me looking a little peaky when I was young!  ha ha  

I predict this is a brand to watch in 2018.  Check out Nudestix Here
