Prai 24K Gold Wrinkle Repair Souffle

Need a bit of luxury in your life? This could be it. Using real 24 carat gold, retinol and algae actives, this anti-ageing moisturiser by Prai is gorgeous.
I've been using it as a night cream for when my skin needs a little bit more love to repair itself. It's left my skin feeling smoother and looking radiant - must be the gold inside. Also, the soufflé texture means it is incredibly light and sinks into your skin rather than the pillow.
Find out more about the Prai beauty range at QVC where they have a lot of exclusive deals. All products contain the special ingredient, Prai root essence, native to Thailand and used by Thai Royals for centuries. This 24K Gold Wrinkle Repair Souffle is £39.

Phyto Shampoo and Conditioner

A few months ago I went to an event with Phyto where they analysed my scalp. As scary as it sounds! Terrified I might have something awful like nits, it was actually fascinating to see your scalp so close up. Plus I was told I have a beautiful scalp - that's obviously going on the CV!
Yep, that's my scalp and hair up close and personal!
Following the analysis, we were recommended our top products and I've been using this shampoo and conditioner combo for a few weeks now.
The Phytovolume Shampoo promises body and volume, giving the look of thicker hair. It contains a lot of fancy sounding ingredients. All I know, is that it makes my hair clean without being too 'squeaky' and my hair doesn't sit flat to my scalp. Winner.
The Phytobaume Volume Conditioner thickens up the hair whilst deeply moisturising. I haven't needed to put so much Frizz Ease in my hair, and I've also noticed I've been losing less hair.
All round, a great combo for those of you with fine hair like me.

NEW Glazed Apple Range from The Body Shop

The latest range from The Body Shop smells as gorgeous as most of their other ranges. I wouldn't expect anything less!
Specially for the Xmas season, it is a very happy scent, it makes me smile (if you know what I mean)! The range includes lip balm, body butter, etc but I plumped to try the hand cream. In the Winter I go through tonnes of the stuff.
I can't emphasise this enough - it smells SO good. Sweet but not sickly sweet and really refreshing. The Body Shop have done it again.
OK, enough gushing about the fragrance. The hand cream itself is great. Not too thick so that it sinks into the skin really fast. Containing Shea Butter, it deeply moisturises - much needed now the weather has turned a whole lot colder.
At only £3.50 for this handbag-friendly size (30ml) it's a complete bargain. And I can't stop smelling my hands!!

NOTW: Collection Galatica in Blue Moon

Sometimes a nail polish comes along that you instantly love. That is what has happened this week!
The new Galatica range by Collection is beautiful. As well as nail polish there are eye liners and lip butters. I love blue nails so Blue Moon is perfect for me...
Such a gorgeous deep blue. The brush is great too - wide and short so you can control the polish well and give yourself a manicure really quickly. This is two coats:
I've had so many compliments about this colour. It is really eye-catching. The only slight bugbear - I've noticed a couple of chips after just a couple of days. But the beautiful colour more than makes up for it!
