Hyaluronic Moisturisers For Anti-Aging Skincare (via redonline.co.uk)

Sun exposure and years of repetitive motions, such as nodding, form
creases. Use a cream containing hyaluronic acid, which traps water in the
skin plumping it up and reducing wrinkles, especially around the neck.
Hyaluronic acid boosts cellular renewal and refines the texture of the skin.

Hydrating B5 Serum £59 30ml Skinceuticals 
"Hydrating B5 Serum by Skinceuticals is a classic soothing serum that hydrates skin with hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 – a brilliant healing and repairing ingredient. Its lightweight, non-greasy texture absorbs quickly and without tackiness, making it the perfect booster for dry and sensitive skins, as well as combination types (which lack moisture but not oil). After cleansing, smooth a few drops over bare skin or mix them in with your regular day lotion to lock in moisture for hours". £59 30ml Skinceuticals

  Lip 20 Moisture Therapy & SPF Sheer Tint
£22.50 by Kaplan MD
"Lip 20 Moisture Therapy & SPF Sheer Tint by Kaplan MD is a cult formula that feels rich and nourishing, but also contains tiny hyaluronic acid spheres to help fill out thin lips. Both the sheer and the pretty tinted versions also have vitamin C and green tea, for added anti-ageing protection". £22.50 online from Kaplan MD.

Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler
£30 20ml Kiehl's
"Kiehl's Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler is a line-filling concentrate with not one, but two different kinds of hyaluronic acid to plump out fine lines. Sodium hyaluronate spheres instantly soften the look of wrinkles, whilst tiny fragments of hyaluronic acid penetrate deeper into skin and work in the long term to keep them at bay. The result? Fewer crows’ feet and softer frown lines. Use with a potent Vitamin C or retinol anti-ageing serum for maximum results". Available to buy £30 20ml from Kiehl's stores nationwide or online.

Topshop Blush in Afternoon Tea - a highly blendable formula in a sweet shade of pink

Topshop Blush in Afternoon Tea £6.00/4g

The Topshop Blush in Afternoon Tea is a cream compact blusher in a
light, sweet shade of pink. Highly blendable, the cream formula melts 
easily to a very slight powder finish. Wear alone or with makeup. 
Instructions suggest you dot on cheeks - I prefer to use a sable blusher 
brush to blend, but this blush is so soft it seems almost impossible to 
over apply either with your finger tips or more professionally using a 
brush. This compact blush with mirror is signature Topshop with its 
delightful polka dot packaging delivering a quality beauty product. Love 
mine! Get yours! Also available in Flush, a rose. £6.00 for 4g to buy from 
Topshop stores nationwide or online.

Black Model Purple Eye Shadow

"You're probably a pro at blending three shadow shades on upper lids, thanks to the smoky eye obsession, but the coolest new way to combine colours is actually on lower lids, in a horizontal colour-block pattern".

L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash - a new lip gloss that behaves like a lip stain!

L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash
in 102 Romy £7.99

L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash is a new lip gloss that behaves like
a lip stain. With a 30% water-based formula, on first application, it
feels like a splash of water filled with colour hitting the lips.
Berry-flavoured, berry scented and also hydrating, this lip gloss dries
and sets like a stain. Completely waterproof, it is totally long-lasting.
I found two to three applications deepen the colour - ideal for night
time, and you should apply this lip stain gloss one time when you refresh
the colour during the day. Available in six shades in the UK including 402
Milady, a deep blackcurrent stain, 102 Romy, a lovely light pink, 200
Princess, a gorgeous orange pink, and in Lolita, Juliet and Eve. Some of these
shades suit Afro and Afro-Caribbean complexions! The applicator wand is
the first of its kind, an invention. It is short with a teardrop-shaped
soft tip designed for easy application and exact outline, giving unusual
precision for a glossy lip gel. The entire shape of the twist lip gloss
casing is artistic in gold with a window showing the gloss. For a high
shine stain finish find L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash at Boots
60ml £7.99. Let me know if you like it! I did.

If You Want To Wear Those Crocodile Shoes, You're In The Picture - Campaign Against Animal Cruelty

If you want to wear those crocodile shoes, you're in this picture. The typical Western consumer here owns a crocodile skin briefcase also. Peta tells you, "When you buy, you become part if it", in their latest campaign against animal cruelty in the leather and fur fashion industries. Decide for yourselves which side to take where consumption of this kind is an unnecessary and horrendous luxury. Campaign against animal cruelty.

Super Facialist by Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover Facial Oil - for a super specialist double cleansed result!

   Super Facialist by Una Brennan Rose Hydrate
Miracle Makeover Facial Oil £14.99 30ml

Created exclusively for Boots, Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover 
Facial Oil by Una Brennan is a specialist pre-cleansing facial oil which 
removes the daily dirt, dust, oxidized sebum, dead skin cells and residue 
from makeup, sunscreens and skincare that accumulate on the most exposed 
part of your body: your face. Deeply penetrating the skin, including 
sensitive skin, and loosening oils that clog and block the pores, the
double-cleansing skincare method gently eliminates waste and oxygenates
the tissues resulting in a glowing, vibrant skin at any age. The efficacy
of other skincare treatments is improved when the skin is pre-cleansed,
that is, cleansed with a cleansing oil and then cleansed again with your
usual product. This product's dual purpose is to deep cleanse and to
hydrate and calm dehydrated skin with it's natural blend of rejuvenating
raspberry, cucumber and carrot and vitamin-rich oils, almond and avocado.
A high performance product, it also firms the skin and encourages natural
cell regeneration.

Una Brennan is a facialist and skincare specialist whose many famous clients
include Millie Mackintosh from 'Made In Chelsea'. To use, pour a generous
amount of the Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover Facial Oil into the palm
of your hand, warm and then slowly massage in circular movements. Remember,
this advanced cleansing oil dissolves impurities and open pores. I found it immediately
hydrating as I applied it and once removed, my complexion was bright and felt
freshened. Use a hot flannel to remove and follow with your own cleanser or the Una
Brennan Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy Cleanser £7.99 150ml, for a super
specialist double cleansed glowing result. There are five products in this
new Super Facialist range each one scented with aromatherapeutic rose and
geranium oils blended with marshmallow extract, cucumber, carrot and sunflower.
The range is free from mineral oils/petrochemicals and synthetic colours and
is not tested on animals. Avoid contact with the eyes. Super Facialist by Una 
Brennan Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover Facial Oil £14.99 30ml, a specialist
treatment which I suggest you use frequently. Available exclusively at Boots stores
nationwide or online www.boots.com
