AA Skincare…For Your Hair

Last year I reviewed one of the new shampoos from the AA Skincare people and recently I was sent a conditioner to try. There are five varieties in the shampoo and conditioner range (see below) and all have a complimentary shower gel available too.

Confidence Revisited

I last wrote about confidence, or lack of, back in 2015. International Women’s Day seems like a good time to look back on that post and reflect on how, or if, things have changed for me since then. Certainly, my life is rather different. I’ve lost my constant companion but gained a romantic partner. I […]

Biotulin: Beauty Without Botox

I have yet another post-40 birthday arriving tomorrow (why do they come round so quick now?!) Therefore, I often find myself looking for, non-surgical, ways of trying to preserve my pre-40 face!

Straightening Out The Competition

When I told the lovely boyfriend that brand new Lee Stafford hair straighteners were on their way to me for this review, he said, and I quote: “What?! You’re going to try and straighten that unruly mop?!” Rude. He hasn’t known me very long yet so hasn’t noticed the old hair straighteners I’ve owned for […]

Brighter Eyes with Optrex

Not long ago, my eyes needed their yearly check-up with the optician. I wasn’t surprised that my prescription had changed and it was a good excuse to get brand new purple frames too! I also had a contact lens trial which I failed dismally at. It doesn’t help that, even though I can cry at […]
