Natural Sunscreens To Try Now

My beauty routine is pretty clean and green but sunscreen is one area where I’ve stuck to the traditional side. While natural sunscreens, which use zinc and titanium dioxide to create a physical barrier against UV rays, are less likely to irritate skin or cause allergic reactions, they can be thick and greasy to apply, […]

It’s summer so I’m more receptive than ever to beauty shortcuts. At a recent visit to Eye Love Brow & Beauty Bar, I stumbled upon a service that not only saves me precious minutes every morning but totally stepped up my lash game in the process: I got a lash perm. Though the name conjures […]

My father had gorgeous thick wavy hair and it was grey for as long as I can remember. I’ve inherited his hair genes on all counts – unfortunately including the early greys. And while the look worked for my dad, I’m not giving up my chestnut colour anytime soon. Around a year ago, my randomly […]

How to Get Bolder Brows

I have a few beauty obsessions – longer lashes, exfoliation, the annoying new line creeping up on my forehead… but my main beauty obsession is a strong, full brow.  If you, like me, came of age in the 90s you probably unwittingly messed with your brows too. (Thanks for nothing, Kate Moss and Drew Barrymore.) […]

Goody QuikStyle Comb Review

If there is a product out there that promises a quicker blow dry, I will give it a shot. My time is even more precious now that I’ve committed to a twice weekly shampoo. The Goody QuikStyle Comb claims to remove 20 per cent of the water from your post-shower shower hair through a wicking […]
