Big Green Tree Range, from under £7


It’s very rare that I come across an entire range of products that I back 100% and absolutely love. So I just had to bring your attention to the amazing things from the fabulous Big Green Tree Natural Skincare company.

Talk about love at first use. I’m hooked.

It’s a small company with a reputation that’s growing rapidly. I haven’t got a bad thing to say about any of the products I’ve tried so far.

Based in Derbyshire in the UK, this husband and wife team is dedicated to bring customers a skincare experience second to none.

They create and manufacture ALL their products by hand – which in itself is amazing considering how extensive their range is.

Now if I had to single out a few of the products I’d go for the LIME, MANDARIN & BASIL LUXURY SHOWER OIL (£9.99) – its based on pure natural ingredients designed to nourish, lock in moisture and offer all day smooth, fresh soft skin. And it does – without leaving you greasy.

Another must-buy would have to be the WHIPPED SPICED PLUM BODY SOUFFLE (£15) – it’s as good as it sounds. Infact all our kids were fighting over who got to use it. It’s so luxurious, smells amazing and leaves even the driest skins (even those elbows and knees) feeling soft and restored.

And of course there is the VIRTUS MENS RANGE – even the name evokes a feeling of power. And the products include all the usual suspects – which are just brilliant.

You get the picture. I’m saying it’s a must-buy! – so go – buy and begin your own Big Green Tree love affair.


OQIBO Intense Moisture Defence -100ml, £35.75


You might remember a while back I told you about thereat candle I received from Oqibo – well I’ve tried another of their products- the Intense Moisture Defence – and I’m impressed.

A great deal of time and care has gone into the range and it shows.

This cream is superb. The combination of skin protective marine extracts and deeply nourishing oils rich in essential fatty acids helps guard against oxidative stress, re-energise sluggish skin cells, boost collagen synthesis and deliver long-lasting hydration. Skin will feel fully hydrated and super-smooth, revealing a glowing, healthy complexion.

Try it.


ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks, £46


What a Godsend. Seriously, you have know idea how many times these nifty, power-packed little eye masks have saved my day. They are just brilliant.

The price might seem a little high – but you are paying for some of the best ingredients around and these actually work.

On the occasions I have needed aa boost, i have noted they seem to instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reduce the puffiness of my eyes.

They are also packed full of great moisturisers so the delicate eye are is left feeling superbly soft.


CLINIQUE Smart Custom-Repair Serum, £48 – £68


Since 1968 Clinique have been innovators in the skin-care world and this new product – 5-years in the developing – is the latest weapon to combat a host of concerns including dark spots, uneven skin tone, dullness, lines, wrinkle and firmness.

I don’t begin to understand any of the science behind the 37 patents they’ve made in connection with this serum, but I do understand results when I see them.

In a nutshell, this miracle serum works to repair the damage you can see – PLUS the damage you don’t.

It’s suitable for all skin types and it’s receiving rave reviews from anyone who manages to get their hands on it. It’s so good it’s selling out everywhere – you’ve been warned. Buy it now before it’s gone!
