Sebamed Anti Dry Defence day cream

This day cream comes with an alphabet soup of added vitamins and good-for-you stuff and I was pretty happy with the result. All in all, this one’s pretty good and left my skin feeling clean and smooth but not greasy. It smells fresh and clean, not heavily perfumed. The idea with this is to apply it while your face is still damp after cleansing, which helps lock in moisture. Looking at the price on...

A night at the theatre, with chunks

Oh Jasmine, we’ve never officially met but I just wanted to say that I am glad we had the good sense to put some distance between you and us on Friday night. And I can’t help but wonder just how you are feeling today. Who is Jasmine, you may ask? And indeed, that is a good question.

It does a good job of cleansing the skin and has no drying effects. However, while I found it hard to fault on performance, it is no better than Cetaphil but the price tag is quite a lot steeper (for around...

Manicare Invigorating Sponge

Manicare Invigorating Sponge

A basic sponge with a textured fabric cover, this  “Invigorating Sponge” is supposed to be good for regular shower or bath use to exfoliate all over. I know the experts say exfoliation is a good thing but I’m afraid I always end up feeling like I’ve been sanded, but this one was nearly user-friendly. With the promise of improved circulation and “glowing soft skin”, I gave this a try. I’ve been treading very gently,...
