The Magical Facial

I normally hate facials, treatments, massages and just about anything that involves a stranger touching me (I know, I'm strange!) but six weeks ago I met a lady called Marie Reynolds. It was the night of the Zoella beauty launch, I'd had a couple of glasses of wine and got chatting to Marie about her treatments. Marie is very well known in the world of skincare. Renowned for her unique approach to skincare treatment. She doesn't just look and the condition of the skin, but also the effect that our state of mind and thought patterns can have on the skin.
As I said before, I don't normally like facials, and I don't normally believe in alternative therapy techniques either, but something about Marie was overtly calming and instantly drew me in. She kindly invited me along to have one of her famous 'Fifth Concept' facials in Fortnum & Mason. I jumped at the chance (obviously), but on the day I still felt a little apprehensive, having never really enjoyed a facial before...

Caudalie Night Oils: Review & Giveaway!

I only started using night oils this year, and looking back I can honestly say I don't know how I overlooked them for so long. Something about using an oil overnight feels luxurious and pampering, and you wake up with gloriously soft, supple skin. I don't use them every night, but whenever I feel like my skin needs a little boost of moisture, which is usually the case as the seasons start to change.
Caudalie have recently added two new overnight oils to their line-up. (Perfect timing for the arrival of winter weather over the next couple of months!) I'm a huge fan of the brand already so I jumped at the chance to put them to the test over the past couple of weeks...

NARS Virtual Domination Palette

I got my paws on the new NARS limited edition Virtual Domination palette last week. I'm a massive fan of NARS blushes and bronzers, and especially so their limited edition face palettes as they are great value for money in comparison to the individual shades, and last forever. I've got both the Guy Bordin and Danmari palettes from previous years and I've used them countless times, so was excited to see the new edition for 2014.
The Virtual Domination palette comes in a stunning white case with a patterned overlay. It feels really sturdy and has a large mirror, with 5 shades inside...

Skincare Updates!

Sorry it's been quiet on here for the past few weeks! With Vlogtober in full swing, it's been hard to find time to blog too much, but now it come to an end, I'll be back with lots more beauty bits for you all! (If you want to see what I've been up to, check out my vlogging channel here!) Today I wanted to update you with some skincare treasures I've discovered this month.
The first thing is a serum. I don't use serums all the time, usually in the winter months or if I have a problem with my skin and it needs a little helping hand, but I've really been loving this one from Vichy...
