If there’s been one hyped-up beauty product in recent years that has given me serious FOMO, it’s the facial cleansing brush. Designed to deep-clean, exfoliate and tone, it seemed like the product my skin was crying out for – and like a lot of women, it was top of my Christmas list (okay, maybe second after a puppy – that’s a dream I’m never giving up on, dammit).
So, you can imagine my absolute delight when the amazing Magnitone London Vibra-Sonic™ Facial Cleansing Brush* arrived at Casa de Claire, right in time to get my skin glowing for Christmas. In a stunning limited edition rose gold finish, the skincare tool instantly caught my attention – who wouldn’t want this pretty addition to their bathroom? But mainly I was excited to put the Magnitone to the test and see if these brushes are worth the hype. View Full Post
In a complete 180 degree turn on my old attitude to skincare (which was, to summarise: zzz facewipes are all I need and I’ll be young forever) I now can’t get enough of the stuff. I’m always on the lookout for new products that will transform my dull, blotchy skin into something altogether more fabulous. Yep, I’m still chasing the dream of that #NoMakeupSelfie. I was recently sent the Anti-Redness Facial Cream* by Peachy Fox and, having seen it around the ‘gram a bit, I was intrigued to give it a go.

When it comes to my skincare, I can be a bit all over the place. Sometimes I’m a total skincare boff and follow all the steps (even toner, say whuuut), preach to whoever will listen about the benefits of a double cleanse, and vow to spend all spare incoming money on whatever Kiehl’s or Origins products I’m lusting over. Then sometimes I get drunk and fall asleep in my makeup… ahh, I call it balance (others may call it disgusting). View Full Post
As you may know, I split my shopping time equally between Coventry and Birmingham – Coventry because I live here, and Birmingham because I sometimes get the urge to visit a River Island that is bigger than the average sized kitchen (seriously Cov, sort it out). ANYWAY, while I do generally stick to these two locations, sometimes I like to switch it up a bit by checking out other shopping centres in the local area – and this weekend, I got to tick another one of the list as I was invited along to the Kingfisher shopping centre in nearby Redditch.

Taking better care of your skin is one of the things I’ve realised is essential once you’re in your mid-20s (along with actually having to exercise and suddenly taking an interest in curtains, apparently). While we know that things like facials and microdermabrasion are beneficial from a young age, treatments in a salon can get pricey. So when I saw a couple of bloggers raving about an at-home microdermabrasion device I was VERY intrigued. I’ve since got my hands on my very own PMD Personal Microderm* (RRP £135), and after trialing it for a few months it’s safe to say I’m a bit in love with it. View Full Post
