In the past I’ve tried to avoid fragrances created by car companies as, from previous experience, I find they are an example of a company applying its strengths in one area (i.e. cars) and attempting to apply them to fragrance with limited success. However, when I received invitation and early press samples of Bentley Momentum Intense, the latest cologne from the car manufacturer’s fragrance division, I was undeniably curious. So after a rather cold and wet trip through Central London, I headed to The Shard for the launch event in the Shangri-La hotel to see if Bentley could buck the trend of car company fragrances.
Also, there’s an opportunity for you to win a bottle of this fragrance before it hits the stores by following me on Twitter and retweeting the pinned post for this article. Winner’s will be announced in 2 weeks time on Wednesday 22nd March on Twitter.
As those who know me/follow me online know, over the past two weeks I’ve been away in Mexico enjoying some time away from social media, my inbox and the London lifestyle, which I will be writing about in the coming weeks. Before I left, Mankind offered to gift me some products that I wouldn’t usually try to help me on my travels and keep my skin healthy in the tropical weather. Traditionally, I tend to have 3 major problems with my skin when I’m in sunny climates, namely dry skin around the eyes, blocked pores (from sun cream, dust and oil) and greasy skin (again thanks to oily sun cream).

Having never used peel masks, eye patches or an oil-free sun guard before I was excited to see how they performed. So I packed my bags, jumped on my flight and began putting them through their paces in the Mexican heat. View Post

Indeed, there is very little that can do more to damage your confidence in how your skin looks than blotches, red patches or darker areas of sun spots. So, today I wanted to run through the three steps, and the products used with them, that help me keep an even skin tone all year round that will also help protect your skin against harmful environmental effects as well as keep it healthy and young.

I realise that it’s all well and good for me to recommend products in reviews and guides but today I’ve decided to show you 4 products that I use regularly in my winter skincare routine and for proof, they’re all empty (or almost empty). These cover everything from moisturisers that will keep the skin protected against the winter cold, a face wash that is both fragrant and refreshing, a fiery shower gel for keeping the warmth of your hot shower with you and a gentle daily peel that will keep your skin tone even. No doubt the next restock is going to cost me dearly at this rate… View Post
