Timeless beauty | Dame Joan Collins


Most people have heard of Dame Joan Collins, either for her films, charity work and so on. Who would have thought that creating and releasing beauty products would be something to add to her list of accomplishments. She's glamorous, inspirational and beautiful. I knew I had to give some of her products a go!


The Ten Effects Skin Treat and Makeup Fixer boasts so many different benefits (see below picture).  Some things I was incredibly happy to see, especially this time of year were "super hydrates, firms skin and locks make up". It's quite heavily scented which for some might prove an issue. For me, it's been fine and hasn't aggravated my skin at all. The scent is nice and the perfect way to describe it would be 'timeless'. The ingredients include organic rose water, hyaluronic acid and red algae gel. Having used this product for a good couple of weeks I've noticed its been very good at hydrating and some dry areas especially are looking pretty good. It's actually been nice to use this spray as a makeup fixer and has definitely helped to lock my makeup in place for an entire day.


I'm certainly one for taking the time to look after my skin all over my body and not just my face. I'm a regular exfoliate and body butter user so I was interested in giving the Dry Oil a go as I was a bit stuck in my ways in terms of body exfoliation products. If I'm being completely honest, the scent is a little too much for me, and reminds me a little of my nans perfume (which is a nice thing but not want I want my skin to smell like). The plus is that this did exfoliate well, and left my skin so so smooth. It worked particularly well pre-shaving my legs and made a nice change to use a different product, as I'm normally a Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub kinda gal.


I'm honestly in oar of the Ten Effects spray, and think that anyone, any age would appreciate it for the wonders it does and, for the help with makeup longevity. The Dry Oil would make a lovely Christmas present for an older women in the family, as it smells mature and most of all feels very luxurious to use. Dame Joan Collins said “Beauty is not just for the young. I believe with a little care and attention any woman can look good through her 40s, 50’s, 70’s and beyond.”.

I'm hoping these can products can do wonders on me to allow me to look as good as her in my 40s,50s and even 70s!

  3. These sound quite nice but I understand what you mean about the scents not being for you and by th sounds of that I wouldn't really want to buy it. Good idea for an older family friend that's into pampering though!

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
