Beauty Roadtest: Renew + Repair

It’s not unusual to look in the mirror at this time of the year and think your skin could use some TLC. The combination of perhaps a little too much festive cheer, harsh summer sun and sea (or chlorine) and air-conditioning can see us looking more Tom Hanks in Castaway than Tyra Banks. And while […]

What is hair dusting?

Beauty roadtest: The Lab Lash Lift

I want to look better naked. Naked-faced, that is.  ‘No makeup makeup’ is all the rage at the moment, and I’m a total convert, as I’m sure most skin product junkies are. I love spending time and money on my skin, because the better it is, the less time and money you spend ‘hiding it’ […]

Flushing my old face down the drain

  It’s been five minutes since I walked out the door of Clear Complexions, and I cannot stop running my fingers across my face. Quite frankly, it doesn’t feel like my face and I am astonished to feel skin more at home on the faces of my children. My, oh my, it’s been decades since […]
