Instagram Update

I know a lot of you aren’t on Instagram (you should be, it’s brilliant!). But: I spend so much time on there showing products and my routines that I thought I’d try and keep regular updates showing anything beauty-related on here also. I’ll use it as a precursor to the reviews that follow the trialling. 

Clinique discontinued the Mild Clarifying Lotion and replaced it with the 1.0 Clarifying Lotion. Comparison coming on the blog this week.* It’s still alcohol-free, don’t panic.

Pixi showed their newness including the already-seen Glow Tonic To-Go and brand new Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads. 

I used up the goop eye cream and the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture*. The NeoStrata Smooth Surface Pads and Bionic Face Serum* also work brilliantly.


  • Davines OI All in One Milk is beautiful. Nourishes, softens, smooths. Brilliant.
  • Bumble & Bumble Full Potential is to be used on the scalp to promote hair growth. So far so good.
  • Ouai Hair Oil is new but lush so far. I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from this brand.
  • Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Conditioning Creme is beyond prohibitively expensive, and once this one has gone I don’t now if I can justify a new one, but for my knackered, broken hair from last year, I was willing to try anything. 
  • SHOW Beauty Working Texture Spray is awesomesauce and not new to any of you. Yes, I’m still using it. Probably always will.
  • Time Bomb Strike a Pose hairspray is new, but good.
  • Simple’s new cleansing products coming soon. 

    Omorovicza’s beautiful Queen of Hungary Mist is out in a divine Limited Edition bottle.

    Hourglass are releasing this insanely gorgeous Surreal Light Palette in time for Christmas. And yes, that is a marble design.

    *Reviews coming this week. ADDITION 29.07.16 – Sorry the reviews didn’t happen this week, they are in order and next on the blog. When I can breathe.

    I sometimes (not always) use affiliate links. If you are happy to click on the link and support this blog in that way, thank you very much. If you would prefer not to, just google the brand and the item, it’s all cool. 🙂
