Beauty Bible Loves: The Autumn VH Edit

beauty-bible-loves-the-autumn-vh-edit-v1

As regular readers of our website know, there’s lots, lots, lots that Beauty Bible Loves at Victoria Health. That’s because our product sleuth friend Gill often introduces us to fab new brands to be found on VH’s shelves. (Sometimes, if we’re really lucky, when we’re all wearing tiaras and having a cuppa. Yes, honesty.) Other times, we’ve been known to point Gill herself – who we’ve in the past (accurately) described as the Indiana Jones of the beauty world – in the direction of ranges which have crossed Beauty Bible’s paths which we think she’d be rather taken with. We share the belief that products need to smell and feel fab, be made with integrity – and always, deliver on their promises. Read More…

June Newsletter

New-June-Newsletter

Welcome to the June newsletter where I write about a new NIOD product that had a rather unusual start to life, we say hello to The Wet Brush, OMGTEA and a few new cutting-edge supplements. We look at Psoriasis, Restless Legs and Osteopenia because they all matter; there is a pretty fabulous treat from Aromatherapy Associates (we are getting ready for the deluge!), Ameliorate and Sarah Chapman and there is a new product launch from Sarah too.

Additionally we’ll do all the news and feedback and despite me announcing that if there was one more wait list I would put myself on a one-way ticket to the moon, I still appear to be here and I’m jumping onto The Podium to talk about it. Really not loving all the delays, but here is something I do love:

Non-Acid Acid Precursor 15% (NAAP)

This is the product that we were meant to launch at the beginning of April, except very obviously we didn’t. And this is why:

Brandon and a lab sample of NAAP came to dinner; I had literally just stepped off a long-haul flight that afternoon and there was no way that I was cooking for him; it was take-away or starvation. We did the former, we ordered sushi. Fast forward: NAAP went onto my skin and within a few hours I was being violently sick, huge welts appeared all over my body and I fell into a virtual-non-conscious state of being. Brandon wasn’t sick (damn!), so it had to be the product, not the sushi; I told him in no uncertain terms that I was not launching NAAP, I would never, ever list NAAP and I was suffering a severe case of near-death-by-product.
