If life gives you lemons ; suck away I say! Why? Well they’re great for the skin! And more

If life gives you lemons…don’t make lemonade … turn them in a beauty therapy which packs a punch!

Rating; luscious, lovely, like-able, lively, live-longer, LEMONS ; who knew the humble LEMON had so many beauty uses & health benefits…I didn’t until now.

Inside scoop;  2 rather gorgeous kind ladies who I’d be utterly lost without (you know who you are….Kerry and Alex!) bought me a lemon tree as a present for my birthday and as a cheer me up from them and my team, having not been well. So at first I thought err ok erm thanks (and inside my head EEK EEK EEK how the hell am I going to keep THIS alive : see Facebook fake cactus post, I digress!).  BUT then I read the letter it came with :

And I was less Sour and more Lemon POWER…and pursued my lemon growing dream…with a little help.

Terrific Tuesday a tale of East Meets West

Terrific Tuesday : a tale of East Meets West and Skin Science meets Natural goodness

Rating ; Yin-Yang tastic I’ve discovered an incredible new brand that somehow fuses the best of both worlds with Asian inspired natural goodness : together with cutting edge skin science.  All developed by someone who knows.  Ok down side? None I see yet!

Inside scoop;  Su-Man is a celebrity facialist inspired brand and so much more. I’ve been trialing some of their range recently and am loving their Asian-Fusion mix of skincare that works : plus natural ingredients.  I call it East meets West, you might just say it works…oh and its won a few awards too!

Scrub-a-dub-dub; spend Sunday in the tub

Sunday beauty saviour in a flash ; scrub-a-dub-dub

Rating ; Scrubalicious sinfully-smoothing scrub.  Sunday is all about the chill, or the catching up with jobs or family, or whatever goes.  No matter what I’m up to though I also fit in a bath on a Sunday & a bit of extra beauty routine, so this skin-tingling scrub helps whip my skin into shape ready for the week ahead.

Inside scoop; Exfoilating.  WOW there’s a more than skin deep topic for a Sunday.  Ok let me make it easy for today to begin with, basically do it, fairly often, feel the results (face AND body).  Today’s scrub-a-luscious exfoliating skin saviour is a neat little find for the body from a range I discovered a year ago.  Happens also to include in the range heavenly oils, a rather effective stretch mark elixir and a fab orange scented dry bodyoil;…but that’s just like friends with benefits.  For me the main attraction is this unassuming tangy little scrub.  In a tube, NOT goopy and will whip off the week and a bit more, at the touch of a scrub.

Scrub upsides oh where to stop, glam glow skin, smooth away the dead bits, fake tan skin ready, etc.  Scrub downsides; depends on the brand they dry out quickly in tubs I find, flake off, feel oily, over harsh etc.  So don’t be stuck between a rock or a hard skin place; try this scrub-a-licious skin smoothing product.

Today’s top product strikes that perfect balance of stays on enough to scrub-in- (vs. Rub or SCRATCH-in) doesn’t immediately slide off doesn’t leave skin red. Oh yes please we say.
