The Daily Beauty: Suncream Saviours from La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF

January 6, 2015 LLG Beauty

(Photographed at Sri Panwa on Phuket, Thailand.) I have that most annoying of English skin: milky white, with a delightful blue tinge, that only needs to have a sunray glint in its direction to turn the most lobster shade of scarlet. Throw in a tendency to rosacea, eczema and dehydration and it’s just really all the […]

Philosykos Eau de Parfum by Diptyque, & a Fig, Feta & Honey Salad

September 12, 2014 LLG Beauty

It’s most definitely autumn outside. Although it’s just warm enough to wear shorts in the afternoon, and I automatically still  pick up my sunglasses when I leave the house, there is that underlying nip in the air that says that summer is over. I always start wearing a different scent as the seasons change. Today […]

Shipwrecked by Stephen: Bumble & bumble at Port Eliot Festival 2014

August 6, 2014 LLG Beauty

Everyone loves milliner Stephen Jones. It’s a straightforward fashion fact. And to have him on site at Port Eliot Festival last week, creating bespoke millinery looks for free, for festival goers  in association with Bumble & bumble was an absolute dream.

The Daily Beauty: Mystic Tan at Heidi Klein

July 7, 2014 LLG Beauty

It’s no big secret that I am naturally the colour of skimmed milk – white with a hint of blue. In the winter I am content to give snow blindness to anyone glancing at my bare legs, but in summer I prefer a more bronzed glow. If I can be arsed. Which is why I […]

The Daily Beauty: Investigating the Science behind Olay Regenerist

May 21, 2014 LLG Beauty

One of the things that beauty writers like to talk about – a lot – is how face creams from the big companies like P&G are always worth investigating, given their significant investment in research and development. Of course, we can talk about it, but it’s not often that we get a chance to get up […]

The Daily Beauty: Blow Ltd London. (A super fast blow dry & make up service)

May 14, 2014 LLG Beauty

I’ve written before about my obsession with finding a great, quick blow out – or blow dry – in London. Manhattan spoiled me in this regard, and I’ve found it hard now that I live in London to get those great blow dries that last a few days, and give you shiny, bouncy, don’t need […]

The Daily Beauty: Lancome Vernis in Love. 343B Rose Pitimini Nail Varnish

March 27, 2014 LLG Beauty

I am, I think it’s fair to say, obsessed with this shade of nail varnish. It’s an absolutely perfect everyday shade: not too red, not too pale. It goes with everything, doesn’t chip, and lasts for ages, (especially with a top coat). I should add that those aren’t actually my hands above, but Emily’s. (For […]

The Daily Beauty: Aromatherapy Associates Relax Body Wash in Restful & Tranquil

March 26, 2014 LLG Beauty

I am currently trying extremely hard to maintain my relaxed state of mind, post trip, but jet lag is crippling me. What I hadn’t realised about not keeping to a proper sleep routine out in SE Asia was that wouldn’t equal just slipping neatly back into my UK sleep pattern. Instead, I find myself falling […]

The Daily Beauty: Jo Malone Red Roses Bath Oil

March 24, 2014 LLG Beauty

Whilst I’ve always loved Jo Malone bath oils, one of the things that I never understood was that they came in plastic bottles. Given that they are, relatively, very expensive, I’ve always thought that a pretty glass bottle for the bathroom shelf would be an admirable match for the contents. So I was pleased to […]

The Daily Beauty: Margaret Dabbs Podiatry

March 18, 2014 LLG Beauty

I’m a great believer in having a medical pedicure from a podiatrist at reasonably regular intervals, as opposed to just heading to my local salon for a quick file and polish. Not only do they really get to grip with your revolting hooves, but a podiatrist can see problems developing that a beauty salon isn’t […]
