Reflexology. I have it frequently with Paolo Lai at Neville’s Salon. I’m also training in it, so it has to be my favourite treatment of the year! Find a reflexologist close to you that is registered with the Association of Reflexologists HERE.
My No 1 Standout Skincare Product of the Year –
SkinCeuticals Blemish and Age Defense £75.00
I was prescribed this product after a facial with skincare expert Debbie Thomas. The results have genuinely taken me aback. For anyone who suffers with blocked pores, adult acne, any breakouts, or early signs of ageing – try this.
My No1 Standout Makeup Product of the Year –
Brow Genius by Anastasia £20.00
This is the best product that I’ve ever found for my eyebrows. I’ve used Anastasia’s products for years, and am delighted that they are finally stocked in the UK. Mix a small amount of gel with a few drops of the powder. I fill in gaps and extend the outer ends. Obsessed.
Wishing you all a very happy new year! Please me know which products were your standout products of 2013, and maybe they will also be my favourites by this time next year.
