After recently discovering a shared love for it in our office, we thought we’d let you in on this game-changer… Garden Of Wisdom.

    When a brand gets 5* ratings on just about every beauty site imaginable, we take note. And when we see seriously impressive results for ourselves, well, we go out and clear the shelves. The premise of Garden of Wisdom (it’s become so cult its also known as GOW), is simple: dubbed The Ordinary’s natural equivalent, the formulas have minimal ingredients, allowing the actives to get to work properly. The pH of the acids have been adjusted too so they don’t irritate the skin, yet still perform their roles of exfoliation while enhancing collagen.

    How long has it been around?

    Longer than we even knew! The pros have been making these formulations for over a decade. The products are potent and cruelty free without common skincare additives such as alcohol, silicones or soya. While it’s not technically new, 2019 is very much about brands with easy-to-follow skincare instructions which skip any science speak, making GOW feel very much of the moment. Read More…

Travel size beauty product of the week

    The first nudist restaurant in Paris, O’Naturel, is to close. While I don’t like another’s downfall, I cannot help but feel thoroughly relieved. The dream of a romantic weekend in Paris and dinner in a cosy bistro was eclipsed by the terror of being asked to drop my drawers at coat check. And don’t get me started on the sanitary issues I have with sitting on a chair that has played base to other bare-bottomed folk.

    It’s not that I don’t love naked flesh, I do, in fact, I positively endorse it when Nannette de Gaspé brings out a new mask. Nannette is the executive chair of Quebec based bio-tech company Biomod which researches wearable skincare technologies and developed the first ever dry sheet mask. I love dry sheet masks because of their mess-free ease, I wear mine when I’m getting dressed without the worry of getting cream all over my clothes and if you don’t mind looking a little funny, they give the best post flight glow if worn 20 minutes before landing. Her latest, Vitality Revealed, is designed to be worn for five consecutive days for 20 minutes. Read More…
