  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

  7. How To Enhance Your Physical Appearance the Right Way

    Comment
    It’s never too late to change how we look. Many people believe that their appearance is unchangeable, and they may give up on the idea of looking better. The truth is that you can make many changes to your physical appearance with some creative thinking and careful planning.  Start Taking Care of Your Skin There are several things you can do to take care of your skin.

  8. How to prevent signs of ageing hair

    Comment
    Article by Steph Stevenson The words dull, dry, damaged, brittle, flat, coarse, thin can all be signs of aging hair, which let’s face it, are pretty inevitable with age. However, there are simple steps you can take to prevent the signs of ageing hair which can take years off your locks. So, let’s dive into some ways this can be achieved: Get the right cut! Be sure to speak to your stylist about which hairstyle they think will best suit you. Everyone’s hair is different from texture to thickness to length, and therefore needs treating differently.   Ageing hair can often lead to thinning, while thinning hair is a fear to many, if styled correctly it can look and feel amazing, so be sure to communicate your concerns to your stylist who can advise you...
  9. Review: Dr Harris anti-wrinkle mask from Current Body

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I’m a bit of a gadget junkie and I when I was asked if I would like to try the Dr Harris anti-wrinkle mask I just had to say yes. The mask is designed to soften dynamic lines on the forehead. The mask isn’t a gadget in the normal sense –  you don’t plug it in and it has no batteries. At first glance it looks like an ordinary sleep mask – until  you see the silicone dots on the side that you place against your skin. The silicon dots are place at mechano receptor points which when pressure is applied encourage muscles to relax . To me, these points also look like the...
  10. Review of Living Proof Hair Products

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   I think I might just have found my new best friend when it comes to hair care. I was sent a selection of products to try from the Living Proof hair care range. Anyone who knows me will know that for me I am constantly battling frizz when it comes to my own hair. It is naturally curly and really does take on a life of its own. My favourite just has to be the Living Proof Instant de-frizzer. It’s a dry conditioning spray that you use between shampoos.  All I can say is that it makes an unbelievable difference to my hair.  It is not a dry shampoo – but really is a product that tames the frizz. Despite my best efforts my hair tends to...
