Sizzling Saturday ; Meets Sad Sunday

Rating ; Whip-it, wipe it, wet it Ok stay with me (wherever you are… and whatever you’re doing right now) tonight’s top (ok only) tip is a quick n easy skin-saving top tip: make sure you take it off (or at least some of it).  I mean your make-up!

Inside scoop;  Murder on the Dance floor ; maybe come midnight if you’re sporting Panda eyes.  Happens to us all  So whether you’re watching Love Island or throwing shapes ten-cocktails in right now finding your next divine match; Saturday night’s only rule is TAKE IT OFF.  That especially applies to your FACE!

So tonight it’s as simple as my golden rule; stuck to it for years no matter HOW good the night, HOW much wine I’ve had, at some point (no rules on when) I do take it off…not always all of it ;)! As much as I can.  A wet wipe, a hot cloth, a quick dunk n splash but whatever you do whip of some of your make-up off, so that the morning after the night before is a little more bearable.

Since I was little my golden rule has served me well.  Wedding, hen night, girl’s night, lad’s night, date night, no matter what once I’m home 9pm or 3am I whip it off….and if it’s good enough for Barry it’s good enough for me.

Oil-my-Goodness ; Lottery Winner alert

Rating ; Oil-alarmingly addictive – I shouldn’t, I couldn’t justify the £££’s (well the $$$’s) but I did….saw these on a beauty-insider industry bulletin I get, was lured in by their divine packaging and oil-so-good range. Lottery alert; because they’re not cheap. No apologies alert; as worth every penny. These super natural, super supple oils for face body and wellness do all they say and rather alot more.

Inside scoop;  Oil-be-back.  This divine delicious range of natural oils have got me, hook line and oil-slick.  Perfect for face, body, even hair and eyes (who knew about eye oil!). But especially their wellness oils.  NOT cheap as I say and oh-so Beverly Hills-chic, but if you can afford a splurge, have a birthday coming up, trust me you’re worth it. Heaven-scent & packed full of naturals there’s an oil for every occasion. I bought the well-ness duo & the face oil minis kit.  If you haven’t yet heard of UMA Oils you soon will (they supply MANY big name brands I’ve heard) but only recently went out to the ‘great and good’ like us.

I’ve been using face oils for years now, even during the day under make-up, today’s textures are so light even for the most sensitive skin, they’re a beauty staple worth adding to your routine and are absorbed in an instant.
