Top Five: Products of 2013

One of the best things for me about writing about beauty products is the way that I have to really look at a product. Rather than just appreciating a product for its colour or finish, I mull over every aspect of it; from the packaging and production to the texture and scent. When you are analysing a product in such detail, it does make you think and putting all those thoughts down in a non-rambling kind of way can be tough.

I have been lucky enough to come across some amazing products over the past twelve months and to round off the year, I thought I would take a little time to reflect upon some of these marvels and pick out my favourites.

2. the time at which something is most powerful or successful.

I love this Holiday / Winter collection from 5-free nail gurus Zoya.

Top Five: Gifts for You

As the years go by I find it harder and harder to think of things that I actually want for Christmas. Throughout the year I can think of lots of things that I would love to receive but when the pressure is on, all of those ideas leak out of my head quicker than you can say Mince Pie!

Sometimes products seem like they have been created for a particular time of year or event. Generally they haven't but sometimes they just seem to fit. This loose mineral eyeshadow is one such product, perfect for those Christmas and New Years evenings out...

The teen beauty market is an ever growing one but sadly many of the products on the market aimed at this age group are packed full of toxic and potentially harmful ingredients. Thankfully there are now some great toxin-free teen offerings from some of the natural companies, so when you are looking for some beauty bits to add to their stocking, why not take a peek to see if your favoured brand has anything suitable..?
