Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.19

For the price, it’s hard to find anything better. It gives fabulous coverage, and blends in easily – is even kind enough in texture to blend under the eye – an area that should never be pulled or dragged.

Crystal Clear Lift Away The Years Wand £59

I’ve started using my vibrating ‘facial lifting wand’ again daily over the last few weeks. It stimulates the muscles in the face. Anything that excites the muscles and encourages circulation is of massive benefit to the skin. You can fill it with Crystal Clear serum, but I found at times not enough product dispensed, so I apply a face oil and then use the wand. If you do like the look of the wand, see my previous detailed post on how to use it.

A moisturising and long lasting slick of colour for the lips. I’m using ‘Plum Russian’. It’s waterproof and has an SPF 15 – I’ll be wearing mine poolside.

ESPA Sleep Couture Gift Set £55.00

As this set was a Christmas special, it is available currently at very few places. ESPA’s Aromatic Soothing Mist, that I mention in the video is only available in this gift set. The ‘Soothing’ scent from ESPA is one of my very favourites – for complete relaxation. This gift set contains the candle, the bath oil, body oil and the mist.

Sabon Patchouli, Lavender and Vanilla Body Oil £22.00

I found this delightful brand in 2008 whist on a weekend away in Amsterdam with my friend Vicky. Sabon has a multitude stores on the east cost of America, Israel, The Netherlands, Italy, and Japan. I’m delighted to find that although there is no store in the UK, I can find the products on amazon! This scent is my favourite.

Please do let me know anything you have discovered this month or can’t stop using. I borrowed my Mum’s Vitamix, I have been desperate for one. I made the most disgusting soup- fouler than I ever even imagined possible. I didn’t think that it was possible to go so wrong making vegetable soup. I threw in every vegetable I could get my hands on, including a huge onion. When George the dog took one smell of it, he backed off – this is worrying as he tries to eat everything – even paper. However today I stuck to a recipe and made a delicious ‘Cashew Milk’. A Vitamix is most definitely back on my wish list.
