Regime London Coconut Quench

Hiya Beautiful Peach Pop As you know I am firm believer in supplements, and am firmly of the belief that regardless of what you put on your skin you cannot compensate for a bad diet and unhealthy lifestyle, Ohhhhhhh that sounded really pompous and it is not meant to be, I am partial to a curry occasionally and the odd glass/bucket of Prossecco, but by and large I do TRY to be good, especially when it comes to hydration, but I do struggle with the 2-4 litres of water we are supposed to … Read more

Goldfaden MD Hands To Heart Anti-Ageing Hand Treatment

Hi Lovely Let me start by saying that this product from Goldfaden MD is not a regular hand cream, it is a hand treatment, and as such isn't used every time you wash your hands, it is a once daily treatment at £35.00 you wouldn't want to use it 8-10 times a day, you only need it once and the 88ml tube will literally last forever. It is described as a Multi Tasking solution for ageing hands. I have been using this morning and night for a couple of weeks now, so more than the recomm… Read more
