The Easy Way To Whiten Teeth


I am obsessed with achieving perfect teeth. Mine are ok but I'm constantly debating whether to hook myself up with veneers and take my mouth to the next level. The one good thing about my teeth is that they're pretty white and, achieving this has been simple. I am often asked how I get them this way, so it's about time I shared my secret. After all, it's really not that complicated - it's just great toothpaste and a quality toothbrush...

How To Boost A Scent's Staying Power


I have a fragrance addiction; a bad one. If I had five minutes to clear out a section of Selfridges (during my imaginary game show), you bet your ass I'm heading to the counters selling scents. The biggest problem is that more of my fucks are given to premium and unique fragrances and, sadly, they come with a heavy price tag. So using them sparingly and prolonging their lasting power is what I'm all about; luckily I've learnt a few tricks throughout the years to make this possible. However, before sharing them, it's important to note that fragrance bottles should be stored in cool and dry places, away from windows. Vampire style. The last thing you want is your fragrances expiring before they have to. But anyway, forget the bottles, let's talk about prolonging a scent's staying power on the body...

Weekly Worship: Urban Veda, EOS & CODE Beautiful


During the last month a few products have managed to sneak themselves into my beauty routine. I don't just love these products - I'm addicted to them.

The first is CODE Beautiful's Volumising Lengthening Mascara (£19.95 I've tried several mascaras in my time; some nasty but some seriously ballin'. I actually own two mascaras that guarantee greatness (I'm looking at you Elizabeth Arden's Grand Entrance Mascara and Benefit's They're Real Mascara), so I rarely entertain anything new...but then the Volumising Lengthening Mascara wand-ered into my life...

Review: Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm


The Promise: "This gentle facial cleansing balm removes all makeup, including waterproof mascara, and cleanses all skin types without stripping to leave the complexion soft, hydrated and radiant"

The Price: £48.00 / $110.00 50ml

The Stockist: / Sephora

The Application: Unlike other balm cleansers, Omorovicza's Thermal Cleansing Balm doesn't feel overly oily on the skin, even post-application. It has a very thin, lightweight consistency and only the smallest amount is required per use - I tend to use a little over a pea-sized amount when taking off the inches of makeup I wear on your average day. The Cleansing Balm feels calming on the skin and can be worked in easily, bringing up every inch of dirt and makeup to the skin's surface.

News: Angela Bassett Joins Forces With Dr. Barbara Sturm


American actress - and all round bad bitch - Angela Bassett has teamed up with Dr. Barbara Sturm to create a specialised skincare range. The new collection, Darker Skin Tones by Dr. Barbara Sturm, features a variety of products designed to reduce inflammation, even skin tone, minimise pores and treat hyper-pigmentation.

The American Horror Story actress met the German doctor through a mutual friend and, after trying her original skincare line, wanted to work with her to create a spin-off range focused on darker skin tones. The range took two years of research to create and it features purslane as its hero ingredient - a powerful herb that treats both inflammation and uneven skin tone. Purslane also carries great anti-ageing benefits, which is a massive win for us bitches wanting eternal (looking) youth.

Review: Jivesse Marine Collagen Cream


The Promise: "A multi-dimensional anti-ageing cream containing potent active ingredients to rejuvenate and accelerate the natural production of collagen in your skin and defend against the key signs of ageing"

The Price: £80.00 50ml

The Stockist:

The Application: The Jivesse Marine Collagen Cream comes packaged in an airtight container and is removed by pushing down on a pump. This type of packaging protects the product from contamination and makes application clean and simple. It also enables you to dispense the perfect amount of product with each pump - one pump is enough to cover entire face and neck. As for the cream itself, it has a thick, rich texture that applies and absorbs into the skin quickly and easily! It also has an gorgeous fragrance that I am obsessed with. I know some of you don't like scented skincare (I get it, I get it!) but for those that do, this scent is really something.

Anti-Pollution Skincare


2016 has seen an onslaught of new beauty trends but none intrigued me more than anti-pollution skincare. Each year we're told to protect ourselves from the millions of different things causing skin damage and premature ageing, so I'm surprised that pollution-protection products haven't come sooner...
