May Beauty. Hit, Miss or Maybe

Hello all. Well it seems Summer is well and truly here….until it lashes it down and then it’s over. To be honest May has been a tough month with very minimal time for pampering. I have been doing Chess at the London Coliseum for 8 shows a week and looking after the kids in the day. Consequently I look and feel like a complete zombie. Anyway a few weeks off are looming and I am beyond ready for them.

Anyway, onto this month’s products…….


  • Katherine Daniels Sensitive Skin Rich Cream. £38.45

This is a really lovely product. It’s very rich but sinks in quickly. It feels very nourishing, particularly when your skin is feeling a bit sore and sensitive. It also calms down red patches.

  • Nip + Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser. £9.00

I am a massive fan of Nip + Fab products which I think work really well and are brilliant value for money. This moisturiser is for dry skin and feels really luxurious. It sorted out my dry patches immediately and it smells really fresh….more like cucumber than kale but kale is not something I smell frequently.


  • Max factor false lash epic. £11.99

The title of this mascara is pretty apt in that I pretty much have 1 eyelash on each eye after using. I have wiped off the excess and still all it seems to do is glue together all my lashes so I look utterly bald. I am usually a big fan of max factor mascaras but this one is pants. Don’t bother.

  • Soap and Glory. No Clogs Allowed Deep Pore Detox Mask. £11.50

So here’s the thing….this is about as much use as doing absolutely nothing at all to your skin because it does absolutely nothing apart from hearing up for about 1 second. It was also very watery. Save your money or buy something that does something/anything.


  • Erno Laszlo Light Controlling Lotion. £47.00 for 200ml

Every night after a show I sit on the train and use a make up wipe to take my make up off . For the last few nights on my return home I put some of this toner on a cotton pad and I’m amazed how much make up ends up on the pad. This stuff really removes make up. The smell reminds me of grannys. It smells kind of like talc and flowers….no bad thing if you like l’odeur de granny. The alcohol in the product gets bad press but it worked for my skin. My only reservation is that I think the price is a little punchy.

Have a great month and thanks for reading.
