Toner is one of those skincare products I actually pay little attention to, but I actually have a few favourites that I alternate (such as Elemis Lavender and Eborian Herbal Moisture Lotion). I prefer something non sticky and it absolutely has to be ok for my sensitive skin type. I spotted Etude House’s Pure Joy […]
I keep dabbling with Asian hair care and styling products, and I have to say overall I am impressed. Most of the Korean and Japanese hair care I have tried so far tends to be quite light finish – in other words, no crunchies, and no flakies. I bought this Etude House Moist Hair Mist […]
The B&C Labs Tsururi range focuses on blackhead and pore care. They have some brilliant products like the Charcoal Soap (which I will do a tutorial on at some point) and a blackhead cleanser (which I sell on Erocolle Shop!). I purchased one of their newest releases, Tsururi Ghassoul and Andes Salt Scrub Paste. […]
I have been testing so many facial oils lately – they seem to be the new hot thing – and I have to say I am a generally a fan. I actually picked up this Kosmea Rose Hip Oil as a free sample and cracked it open to use when I wanted to do a […]
A few days ago I mentioned that I had been forced to do my cousin’s prom make up – so in the end she had her hair done at a hairdressers called Adrian Wilde. It took about 10 minutes but cost a fortune and personally I felt the finish could’ve been smoother, and her hair […]
Watching The Apprentice and Four Rooms (LOVE!) has made me question my own negotiating skills and ability to spot a bargain. We all watch the contestants thinking they’re plebs, but when you’re actually put into a highly stressful situation, maybe it’s not always that easy… Having said that I’ve come to realise I love a […]
Don’t say I don’t spoil you, because today I have a rather exciting competition for you! NEOM, a luxury organic home scenting & beauty brand is offering my lovely readers win an online shopping spree worth £200! I have a NEOM candle and with my hand on heart, it is the nicest candle I have […]
Sun screen, oh sun screen. After my Elemis skin scan I will no longer leave the house without Sunscreen! I recently bought 2 sunscreens (how many times can I say that?) from Kose’s Nature & Co brand. Nature & Co is a really interesting range and one of the first Japanese ‘natural’ ranges. I bought […]
Yesterday was the lashes competition. Today is hairbands! The winner can choose one full size wire hair band another item from the hair category: Want to win?
I recently had a treatment at the Elemis Day Spa in London (more on that later) which included a 10 minute Skinlab analysis – it’s basically a state-of-the-art machine which uses ‘facial mapping’ to look at the condition of your skin. The machine looks like a dome where you can rest your chin on (like […]
Yesterday was the jewellery competition. Today is lashes! One person can win 3 pairs of lashes of your choice from any of the categories: Want to win?
I don’t actually have the discipline of a hardened vitamin taker – my Nan won’t leave the house with out her cod liver oil capsules – but I can’t stop myself from trying new supplements all the time. I used to give up on them very quickly because I get headaches and itchy skin very […]
Hello Ladies! I announced yesterday that my little shop of all things Kawaii was open, so to celebrate here is Day 1 of 6 days of giveaways. Today, you can win 2 items of jewellery – you can pick from Earrings, Necklaces and Rings, and you can mix and match too. Want to win?
There was a girl at work recently, and she was on the phone, trying to think of an organisation…‘Ministry of……’ – she turned to me, and my first gut reaction was to say, ‘waxing’ – to which she looked at me slightly aghast, typed something into her keyboard and said down the receiver ‘justice’. It’s […]
You may have already noticed the little logo at the corner of the header, with a link to Erocolle Shop! We’ve been building it bit by bit for ages and bug testing – it seems to be working fine so I officially announce it as – OPEN! Here’s the stuff we sell. There’s quite […]
Let’s start this sunny Monday off with a lips of the day – and today’s is a very unassuming number from GOSH cosmetics. This Gloss Light’N Shine Lip Eclat and Brilliance comes in that light up packaging – you take the applicator out and it has a light underneath a mirror on the side […]
I just lurrrveeee palettes and sticking everything into a palette. Check out my Unii! I think I have this idea that one day there will be a huge disaster, like an explosion in a marshmallow factory and I’ll be stuck (literally) on a bus or something. Then I’ll be able to whip out my all […]
I don’t own many brushes although I have recently acquired a very posh Shu Uemura brush (more on this later) and this cute handbag sized Ikemoto Cushion Hair Brush! There’s a real trend with Japanese hair brushes where they will infuse the brush with a type of oil to add extra gloss and shine! This […]
I am trying to be more careful with sunscreen – I’ve noticed my skin looking more tired and aged, as well as the fact I am getting darker and darker despite not going on holiday (sob!) or indeed sitting in the sun for any length of time. So I bought a number of face SPF, […]
I will always have a soft spot for Olay skincare because it’s my mum and aunties no. 1 skincare range of choice. The Olay Professional range you may have already heard, will be launching in the UK in August 2011 and it apparently sold out in 17 minutes in the USA at launch. It guarantees […]
