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.

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.

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!)
Lipstick of JOY. TF engraved. Engraved.
It's only a matter of time before I cave.

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...

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.
