Over the years, we’ve seen that, slathered this, tried that. (And sent literally thousands of products out to be trialled by our Beauty Bible testers, too.) So as true connoisseurs of beauty products with (blimey!) 50+ years’ experience between us. we like to think we recognise a great product when we see it. As of course, does Gill, which is why all the following, chosen over the past months as ‘Beauty Bible Loves’ picks on our own website, can be found on VH. We bring you six of the best, which we’ve raved about recently – and share what we said about them on our own website. Read More…

July Newsletter

Cactus

Hello and welcome to the July newsletter where we exclusively launch a magnificent new product for Color Wow together with several new product launches from Better You. I write about the return of Phylia de M (please don’t fall over) and we throw the focus on the result-driven skincare brand that is knocking everything out of the water and has sent me spinning.

Additionally we take a look at some common health concerns, which include Candida and Lyme Disease; with Ionicell holding its position as our bestselling supplement since its launch, we dig deeper into its assets and I jump onto The Podium somewhere in the middle of all of this and hold hands with Lisa Armstrong. Finally, and this will arrive in no particular order, I have a whole list of people I need to thank, which will appear here, there and everywhere, there is an also an update on Soul Medicine and a Summer Essentials Kit. Let’s do it: Read More…

Why You’re Not Getting The Most Out Of Your Scented Candle

There are very few people who don’t appreciate a scented candle. In fact, candles are one of the most popular beauty gifts, alongside fragrance and make-up palettes. According to NPD, the home scents market, which includes candles and diffusers, is worth a whopping $49.9 million in the US. It’s no surprise that there are so many varieties available, from scent combination to one or three wick candles.

While there’s no denying we love them, most of us don’t get the most out of our candles and wax can be wasted. “When you light a candle for the first time you need to let the top layer of wax melt,” says Julia, co-founder of Tutti London. “Making sure that the melt pool reaches the edges will ensure the candle burns evenly.” This helps prevent the area around the wick from burning more quickly.

The Magic Bath

Bath

We recently gave a friend who was having a tough time a bottle of the utterly amazing Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Bath & Shower Oil – only to be met with a slightly confused glance as the person declared: ‘Gosh, well, I can’t remember the last time I had a bath…’ Resisting the urge to wrest this sensational aromatherapeutic treat from their hands, we took a deep breath, smiled and said: ‘Well, maybe this is time to rediscover the pleasures of bathing…’

Yes, showering does the job – and it’s certainly possible to apply that brilliant product before jumping under a raging torrent, and enjoy the spirit-soothing powers of its oils of clary sage, frankincense and cardamom. But truly, soaking in scented waters and feeling every atom of stress melt away is one of the things that keeps us sane. Or whatever passes for sane, in this crazy, speeded-up, how-did-it-get-to-be-June-already? world. Read More…

Small Changes In Difficult Times

Nobody reaches adulthood without discovering that life is a rollercoaster. Sometimes we’re up – elated, overjoyed, beaming ear to ear. But unavoidably, we all face challenging times, facing sadness, grief, frustration, depression or simply fear. (Certainly, pick up any newspaper right now and the world can definitely feel quite scary.)

We’ve long believed that small changes can make big differences to how we feel – and that’s definitely true when facing life’s challenges. So when you’re on the low of that rollercoaster, here’s what we know works – on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. Read More…
