  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. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...

  6. Review: Hair Boss The Double Mask for blondes

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   Most of the hair treatments I am offered are geared towards grey hair, but although I am now in my early 60s I still have no grey. My hair has become a little darker, but I am still very much a blonde! If you follow me on social media you will know that I have been through the wars health wise recently, and all the treatments I have had have really taken their toll on my hair. My hair has been far from the crowning glory it once was. When I was asked id  I would like to try some of the products formulated for blonde hair in Lisa Shepherd’s Hair Boss range I quickly said yes. The...
  7. Review: Color Wow Carb-Infused Dream Cocktail for thicker hair

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I am a fan of Color Wow products and use several of the products the range, I also had the pleasure of interviewing the inspirational  Color Wow founder Gail Federici several years ago  so feel I have a personal connection with the brand. Some of you may have read my previous post about my various health issues – these have had an impact on my hair. It’s no longer my crowning glory – it had become quite limp and thin looking. When I saw a video of Color Wow Dream Cocktail being used on Instagram I decided I just had to give it a go. There is a...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 3 Top Tips for Combatting Lines and Wrinkles

    Comment
    Tips from Dr Emily MacGregor How do you combat lines and wrinkles? Dr Emily McGregor Founder of Story Aesthetics results shares her top tips to prevent and treat lines and wrinkles. “Number one – prevent them!  Some wrinkles are of course inevitable with ageing but we can do a lot to keep them at bay until later in life and to reduce the quantity and depth of skin wrinkling.  Aside from being blessed with genetically great skin the two things that you can do to prevent significant wrinkles are to religiously wear sunscreen and an antioxidant skin product. Antioxidants protect your skin in all sorts of ways but their key function is to further reduce sun damage – they actually make your SPF work better.  These days you can find...
