After a kind invite from the lovely ladies at Liz Earle I hopped along to the Flagship store in Chelsea for a Wreath making evening in aid of their new addition to the ever so popular energising range. We were greeted with Mulled wine (elder flower for the non drinkers like myself) and minced pies with a display of beautiful wreath making goodies! 

January will see an amazing launch of ‘Energising Body Lotion’, a potent yet silky body cream packed with 19 naturally active ingredients including: Caffeine, ginkgo biloba, chestnut, vitamin E, borage, grapefruit, rosemary, peppermint and many more. This luscious blend will have you picked up from those Winter blues in no time at all! The body lotion comes in a sleek long bottle that’s easy enough to carry with you, the texture of the lotion is lovely and silky and it absorbs into the skin very quickly and of course, the smell is to die for as with every other Liz Earle product!

Here are some pictures from our lovely Wreath making evening!

The lovely table full of Wreath goodness!

Majority of the props used for our wreath’s were in fact the main ingredients which you will find in Energising Body Lotion!

Dr Barbara Olioso brings us the first and only personalised skincare system. The personalization works when you blend iRejuvenate Step 1 and Step 2 to your skins needs as advised.

The highly concentrated mixture which contains 19 active plant ingredients in step 1 and 11 in step 2 can be used as a morning and night moisturiser as well and a neck and eye cream, iRejevenate really listens to your skins needs and allows you to feed it accordingly.

The system is very easy to use, by simply blending the 2 steps on the palm of the hand:

  • Start with a 1:1 ratio of step 1 and 2 i.e 2 drops of each
  • If the skin feels dry or the weather is cold increase the step 1 drops
  • If the skin feels oily or the weather is hot decrease step 1 or only use at night

This tailored skincare system really allows you to listen to your skin and what it needs throughout the year, Dr Barbara Olioso products gives us the flexibility to do so.  Our skin is forever changing and so should our skincare regime but without the hassle of changing the products we use entirely.

I have been using this system for a few weeks now, It’s a little daunting at first but the great thing is if you get it wrong it’s not going to harm your skin as the ingredients are organic. The gels are brilliant, non greasy and very cooling on the face. I have played around with a few different systems of using step 1 and step 2. As the Winter months have quickly arrived I have noticed a change in my skin, winter always seems to strip and dry out my skin so I have upped step 1 and it has worked brilliantly. The system is amazing for all skin types and extremely good as an anti-aging system. I recommend you all give it a go. If your fed up of having to change your skincare regime throughout the year to tailor to your skins needs why not give this a try??

 iRejuvenate cane be bought online at www.forestskincaresecrets.com and is approved by the Vegan Society.

I was first introduced to Inika by the editor and Chief of ‘Lifescape Magazine’, an eco friendly magazine who really know their stuff when it comes down to all things enviroment friendly. Inika is an australian brand that was born in 2006 and founded by its creators Miranda Bond and Jenny Williams.

Inika is one of the first brands of makeup to be Halal certified which I think is amazing. I think all Vegan products should have this flexibility as it would have so much more appeal.

Inika unlike many other mineral makeup brands do not use’ bismuth oxychloride’, a well known skin irrartant, Inika is also free from harsh chemicals, parabens, preservatives, fragrace, GM ingridients and fillers. Inika is also free from talk, an ingridient which is commonly found in mineral makeup brands. Talk is used in most mineral powders and mimeral foundations, its the main ingridient which actually put me off mineral makeup for life. When talk is used in mineral products you will often find that your face looks dry and caked, the talk will sit in the areas such as wrinkles and deep set lines which looks absolutly awful not to mention how much it dry out the skin!!

Here are some of Inika’s Hero products enjoy 🙂

Inika Mineral Foundation with SPF 20 £25

This light but sheer foundation is truly amazing, apply on to skin and it practically melts into the skin, its soft, moisturising and has the most amazing glow. It provides you with a flawless and faultless coverage whilst giving you that radiant glow. No talk means, no blocked, clogged pores or flakey residue. Try it out… you’ll be amazed at how fabulous this Mineral Foundation really is! Inika foundations are also suitable and provide fabulous coverage for those who suffer with skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation and scarring.

Inika certified Organic Lip Whip £14

Inika Lip Whips  don’t only provide a burst of colour but also deep moisturisation. These yummy Lip colours glide on with ease, are non sticky and actually taste yummy… (go grab one so you can have a lick) Much better than ingesting a Lip colour which has harsh chemicals!

Inika Certified Organic Eyeliner £11.50

What a cool invention from Inika, an eye pencil with a sharpener on its lid, no rushing around in the morning because you have a blunt pencil with no sharpener in sight. Inika’s eyeliner’s are rich, thick and glide on with such ease and precision. Inika’s eyeshadow’s work in harmony with their eyeliner’s, select two totally different shades i.e brown eyeliner and green eyeshadow, apply the eyeliner on the base and lightly dab some eyeshadow on top.. this gives you such an amazing pop of colour… try it and see!! Inika Eyeliner’s are available in 8 different shades.

Inika Kabuki Brush £23

I first set my eyes on this Kabuki Brush when I was at a Christmas in July event! Rachel (Boudoir Pr) had to pry the Kabuki brush from my kung fo grip, I stood there talking to her playing with this amazing soft brush and even when it was time to leave I went back for another feel. The bristles are sooo soft that you’d think it was real animal hair, I have never known a synthetic brush to be so soft!

Mineral Bronzer – Sunkissed approx £20

Inika brings us this versitle light bronzer. Apply to contour cheeks and compliment your foundation or dust over the whole face for a lovely sheen and glow. A beautiful colour that suits all 🙂

In all a very impressive brand who are Halal certified, Vegan certified and are 100% cruelty free. Inika do NOT  test on animals and all boxes and packaging is made from recycled materials.

It is safe to say that this year’s X-factor has sparked more excitement and talk than any other series yet. With top celebrity guest judges, public backlash and relationship rumours, viewing has been an emotional rollercoaster for all involved…and it’s not over yet!
 
With the live shows underway and the stress levels at an all time high, we think it’s time to add some relaxation to the X-factor madness, so we’ve picked our fave six contestants and found you some top spa deals in their home town! Wahanda, the judges of spa and wellness, are offering some fabulous beauty treats to allow us to get up close and personal with this year’s contestants. So instead of being stuck to the sofa this weekend, be part of the action by booking one of these fabulous pampering deals!

Cher Loyd: Love her or hate her, how can we forget this 17 year old’s first audition where she got her swag on and impressed to boot. The budding star is from Malvern, Worcestershire where The Malvern is now offering a one night spa break retreat for just £85! With this package including a luxurious treatment of your choice, a one night stay with breakfast and full use of the spas facilities you are sure to come out replenished and bursting with energy a-la-Cher!

Matt Cardle: Is the only way really Essex? Well, with Matt being the bookies favourite to win this year’s competition and the Bannatyne Spa offering a Pamper for less deal, it might just be! You can pamper yourself with a Swedish back, neck and shoulder massage or an Elemis facial as well as unlimited access to all the clubs facilities all for just £29! Give it a butchers, quick!  

Rebecca Ferguson: This Liverpudlian lass may be lacking in confidence but her soulful voice is like no other in the competition and continues to blow away the judges week after week! Why not get yourself ‘feeling good’ in Liverpool’s most exclusive spa, the Beau-Belle! You can indulge with a range of treatments within the spa’s beautiful and tranquil surroundings.

Katie Waissel: This Londoner has been getting a lot of press interest recently and along with Cher, has proven the attention is all on the girls this year!  Why not give yourself some girly attention with the pre- party package at Scin spas in Central London? For just £30 you can get an eyebrow tidy and tint, strip lash application, plus a file and polish, making you every bit a perfected star! 


Wagner Carrilho – So rumour has it Wagner, from West Yorkshire, is getting rather close with fellow Irish contestant Mary! If true…maybe the Brazilian lothario can take his new companion to his hometown and treat her to a 2 for 1 indulgence day at Alexander House Spa! This spa package includes a foot soak, paraffin wax hand treatment, Hot stone back massage, Aromatherapy facial plus a selection of cakes and drinks. We think this is a good idea Wagner and we won’t tell Mary its all for just £80! 

Aiden Grimshaw- He might have the support of Birmingham behind him but Aiden looked miserable as he failed to impress Simon and Cheryl last week with his version of ‘Jealous guy’! We say, poor guy! Well if he’s back home this week he could recharge his confidence with the stress relieving Men’s MOT package at the Bannatyne! This spa day also comes complete with unlimited use of the clubs, gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. That should put a smile back on Aiden’s face… (All text and images from press release)
