Products of the Week

Embryolisse - Baume Riche
I've been using this intensively nourishing cold cream for a few weeks and it has quickly become a staple in my kit and personal make-up bag. Great for dry, irritated and sensitive skin. Available from Guru Make-up Emporium
This is a brand new product on the market, made by Fujifilm... yes, the camera people!
They have used their 70 years of experience and research about collagen, antioxidation and nanotechnology to make this fabulous range of anti-ageing skincare.
I am using the Jelly Aquarysta Rejuvenating Concentrate, £69 and the Replenishing Day Cream, £44 (available from Debenhams).
It is expensive but I will definitely be buying these when my samples run out. 
My skin feels luminous and lifted and looks great after application. My mum has also been trying this and she is amazed by the results.

Marks & Spencer - Limited Collection
The new and really rather fabulous launch from M&S has us all very excited in the office. 
The products are well priced, (foundation £6, eyeshadow £4, lipstick £5) but the best thing about them is the quality.
The Foundation is sheer and matte, so absolutely perfect for the coming summer months. The eyeshadows and blushes are beautifully pigmented and the nail polish lasts longer than some luxury brands. Read more about this range and see swatches here



  1. a face product invented by Fuji Film sounds interesting...
    hope I can find a sample to test it, too.

  5. The Embryolisse cold cream sounds really nice, I hate having dry/sensitive cheeks, it's so hard to hide with foundation without it looking caked on.

  10. I'm sure you know about this since you work in the makeup industry, but just thought I'd throw in my two cents anyhow... :)

    You always say that you have dry skin, and that you love the Embryolisse creams, and at least the old one you used to use contained lots of mineral oil/petrolatum/paraffinum liquidum as the main moisturising ingredient and since working with skincare for a couple of years I learnt that mineral oils just act like a barrier on your skin and won't actually do anything to moisturise your skin. Just a thought :)
