Book Review: Pure Skin

I first met San Francisco-based Victoria Tsai, founder of boutique skincare brand Tatcha some eight years back when the range was first launched in Asia and I have been a fan of this glorious quintessential Japanese skincare ever since.

Review: Biologique Recherche @ The Greenhouse

Living many years in Asia I was fortunate enough to experience the numerous benefits of Biologique Recherche (or BR), the cult French brand that is finally making waves in this little corner of our world. Recently under the well experienced hands of Megan at The Greenhouse in Dublin's Dun Laoghaire, my skin was once again treated to the very best in BR customised facials.

Should you Double Cleanse?

I'm a recent convert to double cleansing as have always tried to keep my skincare routine as fast and efficient as possible, simply because I just don't have the time for lengthy rituals. But, having recently tested the Double Cleanse System by hip Irish brand Pestle & Mortar, I have to admit that I was wrong and I am well and truly hooked!

A time & place

As the silly season is well and truly here, my ageing skin is seriously struggling with the combination of alcohol overload and lack of sleep. This is when I realise that not all masks are created equal.
