Winter Skincare

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

Men's Grooming: Wilkinson Sword Review 1

For those who follow me on Twitter, you know I draw issue with the some of the larger brands who produce razors. As a result, I tend to stay away from them, favoring smaller brands who offer value for money and reliable quality in their products. Recently, I was sent Wilkinson Sword’s new Hydro 5 razor to trial and review and, with a fair amount of skepticism, I accepted. Over the past 2 weeks I’ve been trialing the razor (some of you may have seen it in my Instagram story last week), researching the costs of new blades and evaluating the benefits of the newly added features.
