TOM FORD SPRING NAILS

 

TOM FORD SPRING NAILS   

 

Indigo Night: Tom Ford Beauty

Indigo Night: Tom Ford Beauty

IT IS NOT A VERY SPRING-LIKE COLOUR but isn’t it just beautiful? This is one of the new colours from Tom Ford Beauty, on counter at the start of February and it’s just gorgeous. In the bottle, in the right light, it has hints of iridescent royal blue but as you can see here – and when it’s on the nail – it is so dark and shiny that it is almost black. It’s called Indigo Night and it’s just as wintry as the weather is right now.

The silicone toothbrush – does it work?

 

FOREO ‘ISSA’ TOOTHBRUSH: so how well does it work? 

 

Tall and elegant: Issa

Tall and elegant: the Issa brush

I was really intrigued when the gorgeous Issa toothbrush launched last autumn. It’s expensive (£149) and impressively high-tech — it’s the world’s first electric toothbrush to be made completely from silicone and claims that using it for two minutes morning and night will leave your teeth looking whiter and brighter while a gentle gum-massage function will lead to healthier-looking gums.

A month ago, I had my dark blonde hair dyed a vibrant shade of red  for a newspaper feature - because red is THE hair colour of 2015, I’m told. It’s also, as redheads everywhere will know already, not the easiest colour to live with — I’ve already toned that red down to a more manageable ginger. Here is what has struck me most over the past weeks.

PRESERVED? NO, JUST PASTEURISED

 

THE UHT FACE CREAM – IT’S PRESERVATIVE-FREE

 

Preservative-free: Melvita Apicosma

Preservative-free: Melvita Apicosma

Here is an innovative way around the contentious issue of preservatives in cosmetics (are paraben-based preservatives harmful? Does  methylisothiazolinone (MI) provoke more allergic reactions? Do the more ‘natural’ preservatives do a  decent job? And so on.)
