Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist loves Brit brand ICONIC Strobing Stick to highlight the skin.

ICONIC

Ever wanted to know how Kim achieves the light reflective look and effect on the skin? Well now you know it’s the Brit brand ICONIC Strobing Stick £29.99.  It has a cream consistency so easily glides onto the skin whether you’re using it over your foundation, mixing it in or using directly onto bare skin. I prefer cream highlighters to powder ones due to the fact it adds moisture to the skin and offers a more definite fashion finish. It’s the perfect finish for photography and a must have for all skin tones. For more information  ICONIC.

My favourite skin care products for very sensitive skins from Holland & Barrett.

2nd imageThere’s never been a better time for home grown UK based skin care companies for the most sensitive of skins. It was almost impossible to find products back in the day that really worked on your skin unless you made your own.  I know a lot about eczema and about the skin in general as i trained as a beauty therapist and also suffered skin problems for many years. I had the good fortune of being introduced to an amazing homeopath who totally removed all my allergies and eczema and even made his own very hydrating moisturizer. That’s another story for another time. If you have babies, children, parents, siblings who suffer real issues with their skins on the face and body then i would completely vote for these products. I have a very sensitive skin that itches easily and with these products i felt a sense of comfort, soothing and real hydration when applied to skin that is red, angry, extremely dry, sore and very itchy all at the same time. These products can be found in your local Holland & Barrett.

PurePotions Skin Salvation Intensive Moisturizing Ointment – A complete skin saver as it comforts, soothes sore very dry skin, highly hydrating and feels soft and smooth. I really love this product and had the chance to try it out for myself. Highly recommended for Eczema & Psoriasis without a doubt.

Beauty Kitchen’s Abyssinian Oil  Aroma Facial Concentrate – This has to be one of the most moisturizing skin oils i have ever used on my skin. It feels and smells delicious. Just add a little bit to your daily moisturizer or night cream to add an extra boost.

Saaf Pure Organic Skincare – I tried the Pure Face Cleanser and comes with an Organic cotton face cloth. This feels and smells absolutely delicious and would imagine the extended product range would be as comforting, protecting and moisturizing.

Through my experience the creams that doctors offer will not have the same effect on skins that need a lot of tender loving care especially for babies and children. So hopefully you will choose some of these products above and try them for yourself. It’s only with trail and error that you ever make the right choices.

Glamorous BARDOU express hair & beauty a big hit with Grazia Magazine.

For London Fashion Week BARDOU POP up salon was certainly a big hit with top fashion and beauty bloggers at the Library private members club in St Martins Lane WC1. I had the chance to try the hair products for myself.  I’m really loving the Dry Shampoo which removes and freshens oily hair while adding extra body making your last hair wash last a little bit longer ( big fan of dry shampoo). The shampoo and conditioner helps to revitalize, soften and smooth the hair by making it soft and silky. The finishing mist helps to keep everything naturally in place. Grazia magazine voted Bardou hair products the best in the UK.

Look online for products, hair & beauty services and to see generally what everyone else is saying.  This brand certainly has a big following for many good reasons. Bardou.
