BB creams

One of my adoring fans asked me to investigate BB creams. Alright, it was my sister but hey ho, it was feedback and I like feedback.

BB creams are everywhere now. I must admit I was a little baffled as to what they actually are so I Googled and am informed that BB stands for Blemish Balm and are very popular in Asia. They were designed to protect skin after laser surgery. They are a moisturiser, foundation, sunblock and primer all in one. This is the part I am exceptionally dubious about.

I've seen loads of different brands at all prices but today I decided to dip my toe in the BB waters and go cheap with Superdrug which costs a princely £6.99 (£2 off at the moment). It comes in Medium and Light and I went for Light. I haven't properly experimented but did put some on half my face this afternoon to see if I could see a difference. And I really could, it actually does seem to cover up imperfections and make skin glow. I shall be properly experimenting this week and reporting back but early feedback is positive.

Have you tried a BB cream? Please share in the comments.

Nail colour of the week

I'm over the Shellac. I had three and they are great because you have maintenance-free nails for about two weeks. But getting the stuff off is hideous and my nails couldn't cope with much more. So I am back to my weekly manicures happy in the knowledge that I've experimented two months before The Guardian beauty writer.

Spring is here - it's going to be sunny this week, everyone is telling me so. Therefore I went for Cocktail Bling (best name ever) by Essie this week. A lovely blue/grey and very pretty.

Tom Ford

I am lusting hard for the Tom Ford make-up range. I was in Selfridges last night playing with the cream eye shadows. Oh my. They are divine. They are also £30. I want Platinum but how many eye products does a girl need? (Don't answer that!)

And look!

Lipstick of JOY. TF engraved. Engraved.

It's only a matter of time before I cave.

Tangle Teezer

Firstly, I've no idea why the post under this is the Bliss shower gel one that I wrote a year ago. Baffling!

Anyway, tangly hair, we've all been there. Mine's been terrible lately so I invested in one of these (in pink naturally) and it's miraculous. If you have tangly hair, get this immediately. I got mine from Look Fantastic but I've seen them in loads of places.

I've also had a bit of a radical haircut. I got heartily sick of the same cut so I've had inches cut off, layers put in and red bit. Oooooh. It's quite exciting. I might need new products to maintain...

Perfect Summer Shower Gel

Summer is here my friends. It's official. I am embracing it. And to celebrate I've found the perfect summer shower gel. Fresh and zingy - that's what we want, right? Good old Bliss makes this little gem and it's magnificent. Lemon and sage, what's not to love?

I recommend you all buy some for the long hot summer we are going to have.
