  2. Review of  Jane Iredale Eye Shadow Kit.

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon It is so easy to get stuck in a makeup rut, which is why I was happy to try the Jane Eye Shadow kit from clean beauty specialists Jane Iredale. All of their makeup is paraben free and they use only the highest quality minerals and botanical ingredients. I chose the palette with the Naturally Glam selection of colours which includes the shades Feather, Lace, Tulle, Velvet, Satin, Sequin  The eye shadow glides on really easily.  I like to build and blend multiple shades (as taught by makeup artist Jo Jewett) and the palette lends itself really well for this.  It is heavily pigmented and doesn’t crease – definitely a plus in the hot weather we have been...
  3. Review of Annabelle Minerals Makeup

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon It is so easy to get stuck in a makeup rut.  I know that when I first started to wear make up in my teens the whole objective was to look older. Not something I want my makeup to do today! Products and techniques have evolved since then. I was asked if I would like to try Annabelle Minerals Makeup. A range which is ideal for vegans. I cant remember the last time I used mineral makeup, so decided I would give it a go, and I’m glad I did. I tried the radiant foundation and the blusher. It could be that I am a bit thick, but my first challenge was determining how to open the foundation. I was sat...
  4. Review of Evenswiss skincare products

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon The products used in skincare are constantly evolving as companies seek the ultimate solution to address the signs of ageing .  It is never too soon (or too late) to adopt a consistent skincare regime. Once we reach our 50s and beyond we may need to give nature a little helping hand when it comes to address issues such as loss of collagen, hydration and the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I was curious to try a new skincare range Evenswiss, developed with a new and unique ‘signalling technology’. The Evenswiss products contain  Dermatopoietin Polypeptide Complex which is clinically proven to generate advanced skin reactions to stimulate the production of elastin, hyaluronic acid and collagen. It is able to create...
  5. Review of Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+

    Comment
     Review by Ceri Wheeldon I am a fan of facial oils and have not been disappointed in the Rosehip Oil from Trilogy.  Made from a blend of rosehip and cranberry oils with the addition of antioxidant extracts from tomato and acai, it is incredibly hydrating. When I used it at night my skin still felt hydrated when I woke in the morning. It isn’t at all greasy and is very easily absorbed into the skin. The scent is extremely subtle – in fact I could barely smell anything which is a definite plus for me as I have found some other oils to be too highly perfumed . I appliead twice daily (morning and evening)  When applied to the skin it leaves a lovely...
  6. The Best Skincare Products to Combat Wrinkles

    Comment
    It’s never too early to think about anti-ageing products. Most of us might think that sagging skin and wrinkles are a problem reserved for middle age. However, collagen loss can kick in as early as your 20s. As collagen production decreases, so does the natural elasticity of the skin. This can lead to noticeable sagging, along with general thinning of the skin layer. Over time, this leads to fine lines and more obvious wrinkles appearing. Thankfully, you can keep the worst effects of ageing at bay by rethinking your skincare routine. What to Look Out for When Choosing a Moisturiser A good moisturiser should be at the heart of any skincare routine. Applying a moisturiser at least twice a day will combat dry skin and alleviate...
  7. Review: Heritage Store Rosewater and Glycerin Hydrating Facial Mist.

    Comment
    Review: Heritage Store Rosewater and Glycerin Hydrating Facial Mist. Review by Ceri Wheeldon With the warmer weather finally arriving, one way to keep skin feeling hydrated and looking dewy is to use a facial mist . I have tried the Rosewater and Glycerin Hydrating Facial Mist from Heritage Store. One spritz of this spray and skin feels instantly refreshed. It is light and smells ‘fresh’ rather than heavily scented. It has a nostalgic old fashioned feel to it. It leaves skin feeling soft . The glycerin helps to lock in moisture – its great for helping to set makeup. Especially in warmer weather ( or if you suffer from hot flushes). It also helps to maintain the skin’s ph levels. It’s ideal if you...
  8. Review of PMD’s Personal Microderm beauty device

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I have to admit to being a bit of a gadget junkie when it comes to skincare. I love the luxury of a salon facial but have to confess to preferring the convenience of having a facial at home. No travel or messy hair to contend with afterwards! Moving through my 50s and now 60s has not diminished my interest in sourcing the best best skincare tools. When I was invited to try PMD’s Personal Microderm I just had to say yes. It claims to replicate the microdermabrasion treatment you have at a professional salon. It combines a vacuuming action while simultaneously exfoliating with a disc ( there are different grades of disc ( aluminium oxide) , you progress to the higher grades...
  9. Review of St Moriz Miracle Glow Face Tan Serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I think this might just have become one of my favourite ‘go to’ products. I have tried face tanning products before, but this by far the best I have tried so far. When using a tanning product on my face I want to end up with a healthy glow rather than a bronzed look (there are other products in the St Moriz range for this) .  Having said that daily use of the serum will help to build a more tanned look. As we move into spring/summer my skin is looking fairly sallow, not helped by my being more than a little unwell in recent months so I just wanted to look a little healthier! Nourishes the skin as...
  10. Over 50 and going grey? Natural hair tips and tricks.

    Comment
      It’s been said that with age comes wisdom. Another trait that seems to come along with getting older is grey hair. While it can be hard to avoid this reality, once you’ve learned about it, you’ll soon start to embrace this beautiful change.  Let’s dive into some frequently asked questions relating to grey hair to hopefully make these changes more understandable. What causes grey hair? Scientifically speaking, gray hair occurs from the lack of melanin. As your hair starts to lose this pigment, it continually grows lighter. This is why you generally go through various different shades such as gray, silver, and then white.  When your hair starts to turn different shades, this signifies that it’s slowly losing melanin...
