    Natural & Organic Products Europe 2017

    The Natural & Organic Products Europe 2017 show rolled into Excel London at the beginning of  April this year, and for the first time ever, I was in attendance. What got me off the sofa and down to Excel was the knowledge that one of my favourite companies, AllergyCertified, had a stand there this year – and […]

  • Pommade Divine jar

    Perfectly Packaged Pommade Divine

    I have only recently noticed the heritage skincare product Pommade Divine, and it was the beautiful packaging that caught my attention.

    3INA Cosmetics – eyeshadow and lipsticks review

    3INA Cosmetics opened their Covent Garden store last year – in fact, they might be approaching their first anniversary as I write this.

  • Queen Allergy Certified Skincare

    QUEEN Cosmetics Allergy Certified Skincare

    I have written before about my love for Queen, the British skincare and cosmetics company which has kept high-society faces looking Grace-Kelly-fresh for almost 90 years. Queen will never lose their place in my personal Top 10 of Glamour Brands, as they possess niche appeal and back-story to die for. Queen have built their success upon products […]
