Merry Christmas from Beauty Best Friend!

Merry Christmas from Beauty Best Friend!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of my readers and to wish you all a big Merry Christmas! I know I’m a few days early but I’m taking a couple of weeks break from blogging over the festive period. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in September, and whilst motherhood has actually been easier (so far!) than I expected it to be I still need a bit of time to recharge my batteries. Plus, I want to completely immerse myself in her first Christmas and spend lots of time with family and friends without having to think about where my next blog post is coming from! 2015 has been a very special year for me – I’ve become a mummy and my blog is becoming more and more popular. I hope that 2016 will be just as good! I’ll be back in the New Year with lots of new blog posts, product reviews and useful beauty tips. Until then, have a very Merry...

Clarins – New Year Skincare Must-Haves

Clarins – New Year Skincare Must-Haves

If your New Year’s resolution is to look after your skin then the first thing you need to focus on is your cleansing routine. It’s SO important to cleanse thoroughly at night to remove make-up and the grime from the day, and then again first thing in the morning to freshen up your skin and prepare it for the day ahead. This Extra-Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream* from Clarins is a perfect choice, and it has been specially developed for those living in an urban environment who will come into contact with pollution on a daily basis. It aims to rid the skin from traces of pollution, detoxify the epidermis, and protect the skin from the harmful effects of pollution. The Cleansing Cream is thick, rich and quite sticky, it’s pale peach in colour and has a pleasant floral scent. I’ve been using it since New Year’s Eve and I’ve been pleasantly surprised – it easily removes make-up, although you may want to use a separate eye make-up remover as it...

Happy New Year from Beauty Best Friend!

Happy New Year from Beauty Best Friend!

So, 2014 was a really great year for me blog-wise, it was the year that Beauty Best Friend really took off and the year that I started loving writing again. I wrote and posted over 180 product reviews, and I’ve received so many lovely comments about my posts and my blog – it’s what makes it all worthwhile! I’ve started to build up relationships with some great PRs too and been asked to write reviews of some fantastic brands. Whilst the freebies are certainly not what I started blogging for I really love it when I am asked to try out a new brand or product that I haven’t heard of  – particularly those containing natural or organic ingredients – and I find that it is truly amazing. Some of my favourite new brands that I discovered in 2014 include Botanicals, Urban Veda, Bee Good and Zoya Nail Polishes. So, what can you expect from Beauty Best Friend blog in 2015? Well there will certainly be lots more product reviews and I...

Happy Birthday to Beauty Best Friend!

Happy Birthday to Beauty Best Friend!

  Today is Beauty Best Friend’s 1st birthday! My very first review post was published on 14th April 2013, and here I am 365 days later celebrating this special day. Since I started blogging it has made me realise how much I missed creative writing since leaving my corporate marketing job a few years ago. It has also reawakened my passion for make-up and skincare, and in the past 12 months I have discovered lots of new products that I love. Blogging has also put me in touch with lots of other like minded bloggers, and social media makes it so easy to chat and share product recommendations and beauty tips. So, what are Beauty Best Friend’s main achievements from the past year? – In the past 12 months I have built up so many lovely readers – including over 650 Bloglovin followers and over 550 Twitter followers – In June 2013 I had a ‘Product Of The Month’ review published in Pure Beauty magazine – my chosen product...
