October beauty faves: Clinique, Seascape, Revlon, Etat Pur and more…

A week or so ago I was clearing out my hoard of beauty products, which I actually don’t think is that bad but got me a few shocked comments on Instagram! I keep most of my beauty booty in a big chest of drawers but it was starting to multiply and overflow into random boxes [...]

Vichy Idéalia Life Serum

My love for moisturising or ‘hydrashe’ has become a bit of a joke, to the point that I’ll start singing ‘I would wear 500 creams and I would wear 500 more!’ to the tune of that Proclaimers song. Vichy’s Idéalia Life Serum is one of those 500 creams, a rich and moisturising serum that you [...]

Vichy Idéalia moisturiser

This is the toughest bit of winter, right here. You’ve partied and eaten through Christmas, perhaps abstained through January and now it’s just gritted teeth until Spring decides to make an appearance.

Around this time my skin is just the pits, dry, dull and totally uninspiring and you know xenical drug I’m all about the hydrashe. [...]

Buy Me: Etat Pur Skincare

French brand Etat Pur bring out the beauty maximalist in me with their range of targeted Pure Actives for specific skin issues. Pick one or two of your beauty bugbears and I guarantee they will have a serum for it.

I’ve been using a few of their products for a while and I’m a big fan [...]

Ever since I was a child, when summer holidays would stretch for weeks, it just doesn’t feel like summer unless I have a two-tone body.

Despite [...]

Holiday Hydrashe

It’s all gone a bit hol-shaped Isabelle OC towers (who am I kidding? Isabelle OC is more of a hut, like a country bus stop where kids hang out, drink cider, snog each other and set fire to stuff) so here’s a little holiday hydration post for your eyes.

I’m sort of squatting in my grandma’s [...]

Winter skin savers

Winter has definitely arrived, I’m reapplying lipbalm every two seconds and my hair is a static crispy mess, we’ve got at least four months of this folks! At times like this I start stockpiling moisturisers like some kind of beauty-obsessed squirrel, and I really think you get what you put in. In my opinion heavily [...]

Ren, zen, and moisturisers

At a Ren event for the launch of their new blemish fighting range I was expecting co-founder Rob to be a quiet, smartly dressed Scandinavian-looking man with euro-spectacles. I was surprised when a blonde, wavy-haired man with scuffed up brogues and a linen scarf came bounding in and cracking jokes. Surely this is isn’t the [...]
