Staff Picks: Pixi Glow Tonic

Cursed with disobedient, blemish-prone skin, I've long been an advocate of acid - Alpha-H's {Liquid Gold} works wonders - but for everyday skin brightening, I'm massively impressed by Pixi's gorgeous {Glow Tonic}.

March Favourites

August Favourites

It's September which means it's (nearly Christmas) August Favourites time! It's been a month of experimentation (a family holiday in the Northumbrian wilderness leaves lots of scope for face mask application) - in which I've reacquainted myself with old flames, and fallen for some new(ish) things I can't believe I've been this long without...
