Faithful Four: Summer Scents


Over the past year, a huge number of brands have launched great summer scents, so it was time to let you in on my favourites. After all, if there is any season in which wearing a fragrance should be a legal requirement, it's the fucking summer....

Win An Exclusive Antipodes Skincare Set

Antipodes is one of my favourite skincare brands. Not just because its organic products feel and smell amazing on my skin, but because they provide amazing results. This is actually what makes Antipodes different from other natural and organic skincare brands; its products have been scientifically proven to give outstanding results, particularly in anti-ageing. Every Antipodes product is tested in a controlled laboratory, with a small fraction of the final product being placed on human skin cells to closely monitor its effects. My favourite product, the Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream, has been found to boost collagen production by up to 92%. What's more, Antipodes use a large number of ingredients native to New Zealand in its products, including manuka honey, mamaku black fern, kawakawa and Waiwera water.

Doug Talks... Father's Day Gifts For Gay Dads

Greetings, or should I say Konichiwa (yes I have just got back from Japan). I’m here to speak to a very niche set of you all - the children of gay dads. Gay men have an enhanced knowledge of style, luxury and the higher state of things, and just because they’ve procreated, it doesn’t mean they lost their sheer fabulousness. And before you accuse me of stereotyping, I should warn you that I’m writing this while wearing a kimono and a face-mask, so it’s pretty much a lost cause. Go and complain to Russell Tovey about why we can’t all be straight-acting or something. Anyway, enough about me and my edgy politics...

Children - you are all terrible. You take away the joy and youth from your father with all your incessant partying and wrecking of his Kelly Hoppen garden furniture. So the least you can do is restore it with some rather lovely grooming products this Father's Day.

Must Have Face Masks

I love a good face mask. They perk up your skin (and your spirit) and help treat any imperfections in time for a holiday, date or big event. I've been on a mask mission for the past couple of months, trying a wide range of different product, with a variety of price points and skin promises. Here are my current favourites...

Weekly Worship: Smith & Cult SS17

As a self-proclaimed nail polish addict, I love trying out new nail colours and trends. One of my favourite nail polish brands is Smith & Cult, as whatever the colour, each polish is smooth af and dries with a brilliant shine. Without stating the obvious, the Smith & Cult bottles are also the most beautiful bottles in the game...why wouldn't you want them in your beauty cabinet?!

Review: Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear


The Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation promises long lasting, full coverage without the cake. Lancome recently hooked me up with this newbie and I've been putting it through its paces for the past month. I'm glad I did...because I love it.
