I’m a huge fan of natural skincare, I just hate those long ingredient lists that you get on a lot of skincare labels full of complicated words that you can’t pronounce and don’t know what they are. In fact a lot of the ingredients may not actually be anything that benefits your skin at all, they could be preservatives, emulsifiers, colours or fragrances and they may actually have a detrimental effect on your skin or your health. I’m also a great believer that using natural oils on your skin is the best way forward, ever since I first tried Rosehip Oil from Trilogy I’ve been hooked! A lot of people, particularly those with oily skins, are very nervous of using oils as cleansers or moisturisers as they worry that it may make their skin even more oily. But it doesn’t, in fact using natural oils on your skin actually counteracts your skin’s natural oiliness and can help your skin to calm down. Recently I was contacted by Amelia Moss...

Perfume Of The Day – Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum

Perfume Of The Day – Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum

You may have guessed by now that I’m a bit obsessed with the Fleur de Figuier fragrance from French brand Roger & Gallet, this is the fourth product in the range that I’ve reviewed now! I first fell in love with the fruity scent last year when I tried out the Huile Gourmande (it was one of my favourite products of 2014) and now I’m using the Eau de Parfum*. The Fleur de Figuier range encompasses both the fruit and the flower of the fig, plus mandarin flowers. It’s quite fruity and reminds me a bit of The Body Shop’s 1980s favourite fragrance Dewberry, I could just sit and sniff it all day! Being an Eau de Parfum this product is much stronger than the Eau Fraiche that I reviewed a few weeks ago, as this one contains more alcohol. The Eau de Parfum also smells slightly more floral and less fruity than the other products in the range. The angular glass bottle looks a bit more old fashioned than...

Roger & Gallet – Huile Gourmande

Roger & Gallet – Huile Gourmande

I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I was asked if I would try this Huile Gourmande Ultra Nourishing Oil* from Roger & Gallet. I’d never tried a skincare product from Roger & Gallet before and thought of them as a brand that do lovely little packaged gift boxes of soap but nothing more. But now that I’ve tried it I am literally hooked! Firstly I love the packaging of this Roger & Gallet oil, the rose gold coloured glass bottle is really beautiful and the back of the bottle has a pretty fig illustration running down the length. I love Roger & Gallet’s branding too, it’s pretty and traditionaly without being old fashioned. The oil is dispensed from the bottle via a spray, and it spritzes out just enough – a really well thought out bottle. The oil contains grape, pomegranate, blackcurrant, apricot and sweet almond oils, rich in omega 6 and antioxidant vitamins A and E, and it has the most beautiful fruity scent. It reminds...
