Dry Body Brushing, How and Why.

Dry Skin Brushing,

Something I've started doing again recently after a very, very long break from doing so, is dry body brushing. I use a sisal mitt which I picked up for 50p from a local shop, one side is sisal, a durable natural plant fibre and fairly scratchy, the other side is a soft flannel.

Eyebrow Grooming

Eyebrows, pretty much all of us have them, and we all groom them at some point or another, but what method do we choose and why.

I know I started off plucking my eyebrows back in my teens, it was cheap, the cost of a pair of tweezers and you could do it at home. Back then I don't think there was much of a focus on eyebrows as a fashion statement as much as they are these days with "eyebrow trends". The pressure is on for a great pair of brows.

But whatever trend you follow and whatever shape you choose depends on you and your preferences; so here is a quick low down of some pros and cons of eyebrow shaping.

NARS Blusher in Sex Appeal

Another makeup post so soon after the one about the Lancome Teint Idole foundation, I must be having a flush. But what is more fitting than blusher to come after foundation, after all, once we've created a good base we need a little colour in our lives.

Latest in Beauty Box

Getting nostalgic for a moment about my old blogging life, I realised after searching for a good beauty box that I was there at the birth of beauty boxes in this country. I probably was even amongst the first to sign up for Glossybox. I remember the debates between bloggers about how good, or bad it would be. Then the initial hiccups, the lovers, the haters, the mehs.

And now five years on, there are so many different beauty boxes to choose from, catering from the younger generation (So Susan) to those on a budget (Glossybox, You Beauty Discovery, Birchbox) to those who don't mind spending more but don't want a monthly subscription (Latest in Beauty, U Feel Unique) Even specialising in certain areas such as nails (Nail Box) or for vegans (LoveLula) or those who want organic products (Naturisimo) and that's not even an exhaustive list.

There were so many in fact that when I decided I wanted to try them again, the only way I managed to make a decision about which box to buy was the fact that Latest in Beauty allowed you to choose your own contents. Less surprise and more delight for me, having had a few too many boxes in the past containing makeup products that were completely wrong for my skin tone. It also isn't subscription based which is ideal for just trying it out, as no one wants to sign up for something to discover they hate it.

Anyway, putting nostalgia aside for a moment I just wanted to quickly run through what I had in my box;

Today's star is the Green Bottle

The Claims

"Our unique new formulation is infused with extracts of lavender and can be used 3-4 times a week giving far superior results to a peel used once a week.

Bravura London Salicylic Acid

Today's star is the Blue Bottle

The Claims

"This 2% daily salicylic acid exfoliator is the perfect choice for treating skin complaints such as blackheads, enlarged pores, congested skin and acne where the skin is oily. Because these skin conditions are caused by the skin being clogged by excess oil and dead skin, using a peel daily will give far superior results than using a stronger peel once a week."

Cult 51 Night Cream

Last time I covered Cult 51 Immediate Effects Serum and today I'm going to cover Cult 51 Night Cream. The night cream retails for £125 for 50ml, £30 more than the serum and a whopping £220 if you wanted to buy both, the price alone makes you think this cream must be fantastic for your skin. But is it?

Cult 51 Immediate Effects Serum

I'm going to jump right in now with a post on a serum that was recommended to me via a friend who knows about my on going hunt for a decent eye cream that targets fine lines under the eye, which I appear to be developing despite my best efforts to battle them.

That serum is the Cult 51 Immediate Effects Serum coming in at a staggering £95 for 30ml.

Under Construction

It's been a long time since I last ran a blog, that blog (Ms Red's Beauty Blog) was semi successful in its following and I know it will take me a while to build back up to that here. I'll even admit I've forgotten the HTML coding I used to know amongst many other bits of pertinent information for running a blog, and don't get me started on the contacts I've lost along the way.

I thought I'd just lay out my rough plans for this blog, Mrs Red's Beauty Blog, in an introductory post and see how I go, I'm older, hopefully wiser and certainly busier than I used to be so won't be posting every day like many younger bloggers can or I'll just wear myself out.

My plans mostly include;
