Jennifer Aniston's Peeper Secret

If there's anyone who seems to be defying those oh-so-ageing hands of time, it's Jennifer Aniston. And call me naive but I don't think that's down to cosmetic surgery or Botox. You can see the beginnings of lines and creases on her forehead and around her eyes but her natural glow seems to counteract them. Well one of the secrets to her fresh, youthful look is First Aid Beauty Detox Eye Roller, £18 (Boots).  The range launched in Boots earlier this year and since Janiston was said to be a lover of the peeper perk-me-up, it has sold out nationwide and now has a waiting list of over 2567 people. My word!

According to Jorjee Douglas, celebrity make-up artist for Jennifer Aniston, “First Aid Beauty is an ingenious range. I regularly use the Detox Eye Roller on Jennifer Aniston to prep her for scenes. It's great for quickly relieving under eye circles and puffiness. I also love that it contains caffeine – it makes the circles just fade away."

So is this for you? Well if you suffer from bags, puffy eyes and dark circles, then yes probably. As with most under-eye products, it contains caffeine to minimise redness and encourage better drainage around the eyes. Bye-bye bags! On top of this, collagen-boosting peptides help to plump out fine lines, whilst good old Witch Hazel soothes puffy, swollen eyes. And if it's good enough for Jen...Sx

Artistic Colour Gloss Manicure New Season Colours

Yesterday I was at the heavenly Urban Retreat in Harrods to celebrate the launch of the Artistic Colour Gloss Manicure in the famous beauty emporium. Regular Best Tressers will remember I reviewed the long-lasting manicure on its launch in the UK in March. If you didn't see it, read the review here - I was a little disappointed that the manicure, said to last 3 weeks, chipped after just 7 days. Saying that, I have terrible nails that peel and break almost on a daily basis. I feel like they might be a little stronger at the moment (I've been using Seche Rebuild) so after yesterday's manicure, I'm putting them to the test again. And what better way to do it than with this fabulous new season neon.

The great thing about Artistic Colour Gloss, as opposed to other long-lasting manicures from Nails Inc and OPI, is the rate at which they bring out new colours. After a starting collection of 38, the brand are adding 28 more amazing shades. There's also a rumour that Tom Bachik, the creator, will be launching two limited edition catwalk-inspired shades each month. Amaze-balls! The new colours include a chic collection of nudes and deep-hued plummy shades. But my absolute favourite additions are the neon colours, hot pink, fuchsia pink, purple, lime, orange and yellow, all of which glow under UV light. Even in the day, this fluoro pink (FYI, it's called Owned) is gorgeously bright. After moaning about the loss of Essie's Disco Pink, I'm so glad to have found an acidic pink replacement. Check out the colours for yourself here Sx

Nicole Richie's High Street Beauty Secret

The star herself admitted to using Dove Beauty Cream Bar as a cleanser in this week's edition of Now. I'm not usually a fan of using soap. With many, the pH level is actually too alkaline for our skin's natural pH of 5.5 so can end up stripping the skin of moisture. Dove Beauty Cream Bar, however, has been created with a pH neutral formula so it's kinder to the skin. Prices start from 82p, available at Boots Sx

Lauren Conrad Takes a Dip

Courtesy of Fashionista
The dip dye trend shows no signs of slowing as Lauren Conrad debuted this multi-coloured pastel treat recently. I must say I really like this look. As a dark brunette, I'm not sure this would work on my hair but blondes should absolutely go for it. American Dream Clip In Extensions ( come in root stretch shades so they're great for dipping in (geddit?) to the trend or if you fancy getting arty, try Lee Stafford Colour Xtreme Spray in Pink, Purple and Blue (Boots). Sx

Christmas in July

Yesterday I went to a couple more Christmas in July press days. Crazy you might think, but for those journalists working on monthly magazines, they will soon if not already be working on their Christmas Gift Guides. First up was Boudoir PR with a selection of gorgeous goodies from Nail Rock (they're doing a range for Ann Summers, more on that to come soon), Penhaligon's and Lipsy. I also got to see the Iman Liquid Foundation for the first time, which was great. I heard on the grapevine that the cosmetics brand from model, Iman, which covers a wider selection of skintones, is loved by Rihanna, The Saturdays and the Sugababes.

Next was Debenhams, who always have some lustworthy gifts. Unfortunately I was in such a rush couldn't take any pics but they're are some gorgeous vanity cases from Floozie by Frost French and Betty Jackson. Also, Ruby Hammer (formerly of Ruby and Millie) is launching a range of cosmetic sets for Debenhams. The pigment is impressive and the colours lust-worthy. There'll also be some gorgeous perfume gift sets - hello Jean Paul Gaultier in your snowy packaging - including the new scent from Kim Kardashian, blimey that girl works quickly! I had a quick sniff. It's lighter than the first, surprisingly lovely fragrance and to me, not as appealing. I'll be posting more on Christmas in July this week. Sx

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Red Zin...The Perfect Goth-Red Hue

I love this blood red shade from Sally Hansen's new nail polish line, Complete Salon Manicure, £6.95 (Boots). I have about 10 different shades of scarlet but Red Zin might have just stepped into pole polish position. The only downside is the brush - it's wide but flat, rather than curved, so it's difficult to paint the base of the nail at the cuticles - hence the not-quite-perfect look in the picture. Sx

NEW! MeMeMe Gift Sets

Up and coming makeup brand, MeMeMe, are launching 10 beautiful gift sets at Argos this week. The set is delivered in a gorgeous gift box and includes a selection of the brand's most lust-worthy products. Each box is themed, from a classic nail look to a super girly pink makeup set, so it's easy to find one to suit you or the intended recipient. The MeMeMe gift sets start at £14.99, working up to £29.99. They launch in the new Argos catalogue on Saturday but go online at from today. Sx

The Best Seller Collection in Pink, £15.50

The Goddess Collection, £29.99

Katy Perry Nails The Smurfs

If there's one thing Katy Perry does well, it's nails. At this weekend's 'The Smurfs' premiere, Katy teamed her Smurfette-emblazoned dress with a Smurftastic manicure. On top of polka dot metallic base colours of green, blue and silver were cute-as-a-button Smurf stickers. Hello Papa Smurf! Marvel at Katy's cartoon talons here

It got me thinking about which cartoon characters I'd like plastered across my nails. Grass green Poddington Peas on a yellow nail would be good. A classic postbox red would make the perfect base for Postman Pat (Jess 'n' all). But I'm hankering after ice-cream coloured pastels underneath an array of Care Bears. What cartoon-inspired nails would you go for Best Tressers? Sx

NEW! Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola!

The new campaign

I have a confession to make. I am not overly keen on Marc Jacobs Lola. There. I've said it. Phew. Perhaps some of the reason to my aversion was because my expectations were too high. I am Daisy's biggest fan. From the moment I smelled it I knew it was made for me. Kinda like Andrew Garfield, only he doesn't know it yet. But when it came to Lola, I was left unmoved. So when I heard Marc Jacobs was launching another edition, I was determined to keep an open mind. And I'm so glad I did.

According to the press release, the Oh, Lola! girl is 'coy and clever with a wink,' while the new scent is 'a flirty facet of the original Lola.' Generally, I'd say this was a young scent...Mum, this probably isn't for you. Teens and girls in their twenties, even thirties could pull this off.

As with all MJ fragrances, you can't start a review without discussing the aesthetics and Oh, Lola! doesn't disappoint. The pink-hued packaging and rose glass bottle are made for a girl's dressing table, while the satisfyingly-tactile rubber flower lid is fun, without seeming garish. Would you expect anything less from Marc Jacobs? I think not.
On first spritz, the sweetness of this fruity floral hits you - it has an air of sweetie-infused hairspray about it - but offically the top notes feature raspberry and pear. After about 30 seconds, it gets more interesting, or shall we say the 'Oh' part of 'Lola' kicks in. Unequivocally feminine, the peony, magnolia heart then mellows in a sensual base of vanilla, sandalwood and tonka bean. It's that vanilla dry down that really lingers, surprisingly well for such a fresh floral. So is this for you? Well if you like your scents sweet and fruity, and your bottles pretty in pink, Oh, Lola! may very well become your signature scent.

Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola! is available from this Wednesday (0800 652 7661), priced from £37 30ml Sx

Katy Perry goes blonde

So I guess the ginger hue she's been walking around with for the last couple of weeks was a pitstop on the way to blondesville. I was kind of fond of the copper hue but yesterday Katy debuted her newly lightened locks. I know she is a natural blonde but her alabastre skin and raven haired combo suited her retro style so well that I'm not convinced she'll stay blonde for long. What do you think Best Tressers?

Eye Rock

Last night I attended the launch of Eye Rock at the Swarovski Crystallised lounge. The new range partners Nail Rock, a range of long-lasting, hard-wearing nail wraps in a range of to-die-for patterns. Regular Best Tressers might remember I trialled the leopard print wraps a few months ago but if not you can read the review here

Eye Rock
Eye Rock allow you to create gorgeous patterns around the eye area with Swarovski crystals, no less. The crystals come on a clear sheet of plastic, which is then pressed firmly against clean, dry skin for 10 seconds before peeling off. Some crystals may stick to the plastic backing but they can be applied separately with tweezers.

I was lucky enough to have mine applied by the lovely Michael Ashton, celebrity makeup artist but apparently they're pretty easy to apply yourself. The press release says that with good care, the crystals can last for a few days and I have to vouch for that. I went to sleep with mine and when I woke up this morning, I expected to find crystals dotted over my face and hair. Not the case. Each crystal was perfectly placed and showed no signs of peeling off. Unfortunately I had to walk my sister's dog and I don't think an eye full of Swarovski crystals would go down to well on our estate but I can happily say they were quick to remove and left no marks or residue on the skin.

Swarovski will also be blinging up Nail Rock with a jewel encrusted pattern. As with all Nail Rock wraps, the nail must be clean, filed and buffed to remove shine. Select the wrap nearest your nail size - you can always trim beforehand if it's too big - place at the bottom of your nail and press firmly. File off the excess and then it's time to apply the crystals. The crystals come in strips so depending on which nail you'd like to apply the jewels to, measure to match the nail then trim. Remove the backing sheet and press the strip down on the nail.
Eye Rock is priced between £20 and £24. Nail Rock is priced at £20. Both are available at and from end of July/August Sx

Where's Vanessa's gorgeous mane gone?

I'd just got used to the shoulder skimming, midi cut but the Hudgens has become even more scissor happy with her latest 'do. Apparently it's been given the chop by the star's director - a word of advice Vanessa, probably not the best idea to let a guy randomly hack into your locks. Vanessa's got the kind of small-featured, dark-skinned beauty that could really pull of a cute elfin crop but this is a bit long and shaggy for that. Check out her new 'do here then vote in The Tress Factor hair poll. Is her new style a do or a don't Best Tressers? Sx

Looking Good, Petal

I have long spoken of the joys of Nailease - the no glue, no mess nail stickers, that boast 10 day wear and zero drying time - particularly for those challenged by time and/or dexterity. You can read my review here but today I wanted to show you two of the new season designs.

I've fallen in love with these floral nail patterns, particularly the pink on black design. I think I'd opt for 4 black florals with a blue wrap on my ring finger - I'm just that crazy! The new Nailease trends are available at Boots now. Beat you to it! Sx

Launch Wednesday

Yesterday I went to a couple of Christmas press days..."Christmas?" I hear you cry. Yes Christmas, and I bloomin' love it. I started the day at the Wilkinson press show, which really was impressive. Their festive gifts are just to-die-for - it's pretty rare that I come out of a Christmas press show wanting (as in needing) a massive handful of things (hello robin thermos flask!). With the help of their in-house trend manager, Liz Davies, Wilkinson are also launching a couple of amazing makeup palettes at a stonkingly good £1.50! The family-run store has really upped its game over the last couple of years but kept the prices affordable. Definitely worth a trip...the gift lines launch in store in October.

Next I hot-footed it to The Communications Store for a festive showcase of their brands. Urban Decay have some gorge palettes launching pre-Christmas, while Dr Hauschka have made it a little easier to dip into their heavenly skincare with 4 coffret, filled with hero products. But it was Space NK who really stole the show, with two new body lines launching September and October respectively. Let me just say girls, they smell AMAZING. Stay tuned for more details, Sx

Going for Gold

Rummaging through my nail polishes, I found this little beaut by Orly. The aptly-named Glitz & Glamour, £9.25 ( is made up of super-fine glitter for a high-shine, light-reflecting finish. Because of this, it's easier to remove than other glitter polishes but a little messier...I can't seem to get rid of the glitter on my face! It's too pretty to care though. Sx

Exciting News from Rimmel

Last week, I was invited on a press trip to Ibiza with Rimmel. Not one to turn down such a fabulous opportunity, I was on that plane chanting Vengaboys lyrics in a flash. We stayed at the exclusive Ushuaia Beach Hotel - so exclusive in fact, we were pretty much next door to Frankie and Mollie from The Saturdays! The food was amazing, the atmosphere electric but most importantly, the new products are some of the most innovative and darn right exciting I've seen from the brand in years. Unfortunately, a few of the products aren't due out until September/October so I can't really divulge too much about those but what I can tell you about right now is the Extra Wow Mascara and new I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polishes.
Extra Wow Lash Mascara
The Extra Wow Lash Mascara, £5.49, has a nice chunky fibre brush and I think its 'wow' factor lies in separation and length. If you like your lashes spidery and clumpy, this probably isn't for you. I haven't curled my lashes in this picture so I'm pretty impressed with the curled-back result of this mascara.

New A/W nail shades
The brand have just launched their new A/W Lasting Finish nail shades and unusually for that impending time of year, the colours are bright and cheerful. The packaging too has undergone a serious glamover with its purple-hued Union Jack design. I've been wearing the coral-red Hot and Spicy for a few days now and must say the formula is surprisingly hard-wearing for an under £3 polish! Being the magpie that I am though - what girl isn't? - my party season fave has to be the sparklicious Disco Ball! The polishes are priced at £2.99, and are available now. Sx

Prescenting...Outspoken Intense by Fergie

Fergie Ferg is one sassy lady. If that sass was bottled, would it smell like 'Outspoken Intense', the new fragrance from the Black Eyed Peas singer and Avon? Probably not. I imagine Fergie's sassy scent to translate into something punchy, distinct and erm, intense. 'Outspoken Intense', however, is just kind of pretty.  This makes me sound like I don't like the new fragrance, which follows on from last year's 'Outspoken', a massive hit for Avon. I do. It's smooth, floral and super-wearable. So what exactly does it smell like?

Top notes
Starfruit, kumquat

Passion flower, gardenia, orange flower petals

Warm musks, white amber, blonde cedar

I can totally see why the original fragrance was such a massive hit for Avon, and it's exactly the same reason this new scent will more than likely do just as well. These scents are feminine, pretty and totally inoffensive. Aside from that, it's an unequivocal bargain. It costs just £15 for 50ml...gasp! Plus, I've been pretty impressed with how well the scent has lasted on my skin - I'm a few hours in and I can still smell it wafting in the air.
Did you know? The original Outspoken fragrance sold 56 bottles an hour in 2010, making it Avon's most successful fragrance launch. 
On creating the latest scent, Fergie said, "For my second fragrance I really wanted to add a little more edge. Outspoken Intense is a provocative blend of sexy confidence and daring femininity that captures the thrill and excitement of being centre stage."

If pretty floral scents are your bag, then I think you'd better have a go on this. The new fragrance will be available at from August. Sx

NEW! Create a Spa in your Bathroom with Elemis!

Last week, this arrived at my door...

This is what was in it...

A cardboard spa-house on an otherwise arduous Thursday is my idea of a good time, especially when it's filled with Elemis goodies. The new sp@home range is designed to recreate the ambience and post-treatment results of the day spa, all in the comfort of your own home. There are 5 colour-coded sub-ranges within the collection - body performance, body exotics, body awaken, body soothing, body anti-ageing - containing a selection of the brand's hero buys, as well as 14 new products. I was sent 4 of them to try so I decided to light a few candles, soak in an oil-based bath and embrace the spa lifestyle in my little bathroom.

Quiet Mind Temple Balm, £14
As a major anxiety-headache sufferer, I'm a fan of these stress-busting balms. Applied to the temples, the balm uses a blend of essential oils to calm and harmonise the mind. I put this on before my spa sesh to get me in the right frame of mind. I found the balm a little runny but as soon as I started to massage in I felt a soothing, cooling sensation. I have to say that for me, nothing can compete with Origins Peace of Mind On the Spot Relief, £11 (Boots), but this did give a similar feeling of refreshment.

Tranquil Touch Body Polish, £20
Once in the bath, I massaged this polish into my legs, arms and decolletage. It's perhaps not as abrasive as I would like, but then again the scrubs I favour are perhaps a little harsh for twice-weekly use. This buffer contains a natural rice exfoliator to slough dead skin, while Cupuacu butter nourishes and moisturises. My skin really did feel softer and hydrated. The scent, as you'd expect from an Elemis spa product, is simply lovely, with essential oils of patchouli, mandarin and ginger.

Cellutox Active Body Oil, £30.70.
I love body oils, so one that also tackles cellulite was always going to be popular with me. The lemon really comes through scent-wise so you're left with a sense of lightness and freshness. The oil melts into the skin and gets to work on detoxifying the body with a cocktail of sea buckthorn, sea fennel, juniper and of course lemon essential oils. I haven't noticed any improvement in my lumps and bumps yet - I have only been using it for a few days - but my skin certainly feels smoother.

Treat Your Feet Foot Cream, £16
This is pretty much what you'd expect from a premium foot cream. Don't get me wrong, it smells gorgeous - that will be the blend of patchouli, eucalyptus and lemon oils then - and the texture is satisfyingly thick and creamy. The shea butter jojoba oil formula leaves skin soft for a couple of hours but I think my feet will need a bit more work.

As for DIY vs at the spa relaxation, well I probably did feel just as tranquil as I would've done in the spa. Yes I had to apply the products myself (what a chore!) and I was missing the panpipe music and fluffy robe but being in the comfort of my own home gave me an extra sense of calm and comfort that I wouldn't have felt stripping off to a pair of paper pants in the spa. All the products are available now at Sx

Kimberley Walsh's Skin Secret

Two things spring to mind when I think of K-Walsh of Girls Aloud. Wide-of-the-mark outfits. Good skin. Now I'm not sure about the former, but the latter is apparently down to noneother than good old kind-to-the-skin range, Simple. In a recent interview, Kimberley revealed that, "I always take my make-up off before bed and this range is so affordable." According to sources, she's a particular fan of their Cleansing Facial Wipes, £3.05 (Boots). Sx

Amazing Base!

I feel like my life is one big search for the perfect foundation (well that and you know, being with my boy, having fun with friends and family, 'n' all that). I have not been blessed with good skin. My complexion still bears the red marks of my spotty adolescence (in fact what am I talking about? I still get spots!), my pores are visible from space and I have random patches of freckles - so long even-tone! Needless to say, a good foundation is to me what a good bra is to Britney Spears. I've been using Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation, £34 ( for a few months now and I'm pretty hooked.

Yes I have blemishes but I hate the feeling of heavy, cakey foundations. I will always opt for light, glowy bases but this does nothing to sort my uneven, spotty complexion. Perfect Refining Foundation meets somewhere in the middle - think even tone, barely-visible blemishes and skin that looks like skin but better, all fresh and flawless. The foundation itself feels featherlight and contains SPF 15 - BONUS! I apply it with a brush, but even with fingers the formula blends in effortlessly. And because it releases its uber-hydrating ingredients slowly throughout the day, this is a base that will work just as well in winter as it does in the summer. The semi-matte finish leaves my pores looking smaller, blemishes less noticeable and my skintone more even. 10/10 from me, Sx

Holiday Toes

Do my feet look big in this?
As you read this, I am on a jet-plane bound for Ibiza on a 2 day press trip courtesy of Rimmel...spoilt much? But like most girls, I was faced with the pre-holiday dilemma of 'what should I paint on my toes?' ARGHHH. I decided to embrace the rave-ish vibe of the party island and opted for a neon pink hue. This is one of my favourite nail polishes...actually that's a lie, it's an extension of my favourite nail polishes. Essie's iconic fluoro fuchsia, 'Disco Pink' (it later became 'Short Shorts'), was my go-to nail colour, until it was cruelly discontinued. The shade I'm currently wearing on my toes is 'Punchy Pink', a not-quite-so-nice matte version, which I've just discovered has also been cut loose from the range. I don't know why Essie ( are culling such amazing, notice-me shades. I might start an online petition Sx

Tried and Tresseded...Bourjois 10 Day Nail Enamel

As regular Best Tressers will know, I've already become obsessed with Bourjois' new 10 Day Nail Enamel in 14, £5.99 (Boots) - the most heavenly rose shade. But that's by the by because this new long-lasting polish claims to last up to 10 days. "What?" I know, right! It's all down to the pro-silicium fortifying formula, which apparently makes nails twice as chip-resistant. But hold your horses there because the press release actually says that the polish should last for 7 days, then chips can be easily touched up with the angled brush for the remaining 3. So not quite the claim the bottle suggests. Well I put this little beaut to the test a few weeks ago. I painted two coats, with no base or top coat for a fair test. Here are the results (from top to bottom: day 1-7)...
As you can see, I didn't make it to day 10 - I had a wedding to go to and had to repaint them after the 7th chip-heavy day - but the results are pretty impressive considering I spend the majority of my day furiously typing on my laptop. My nails were faultless until day 3 when, if you looked VERY carefully, the colour was almost pushed back slightly on the index and middle fingers. By day 5, the chips were becoming noticeable but still I didn't find it necessary to remove and repaint. It might not last 10 days - would you really, truly expect it to though? - but I'm really impressed with the colour's durability. Imagine how long it would stay chip-free with a base and top coat, and when it's a colour this pretty, you sure want it to last! Sx

Emma Watson Looks Heavy...

...well her eye makeup that is. At last night's New York Potter premiere, Emma teamed her slicked-back 60s crop (love, love) and her burnished gold Bottega Venetta gown with smouldering black and gold eyes. Have a look at the pictures on The Daily Mail here -

Now I'm all for a smoky eye and I absolutely love the gold leaf effect on the inner and outer corner, but together? Not so much. Had the gold leaf been used on its own, it might have appeared too matchy-matchy with her dress, however pretty the end result would've been. I think a smoky eye in its own right would've worked much better with that hair and that dress. I'm glad of one thing though...that finally Emma is pushing the boundaries of event makeup. What do you think Best Tressers? Sx

My fragrance of the summer

For so long, the only scents that have made it to any state of permanence in my fragrance wardrobe have been Marc Jacobs 'Daisy', Chanel 'Chance' and 'Coco Mademoiselle'. Sure, I've smelled some rather lovely perfumes, but none that have that special 'something'. It seems, though, that 'wear-me, love-me' scents are like buses. You wait ages for one, then a few lustworthy scents (does this metaphor still work for buses?) all come at once. Penhaligon's 'Juniper Sling' was one such perfume and the new Emilio Pucci 'Miss Pucci Eau de Parfum Intense', £41 30 ml, is another.

This new launch follows on from last year's hit, 'Miss Pucci'. This time, the scent is more sophisticated and elegant. I've been wearing this since the launch a couple of months ago and have had so many compliments on its heady, amber scent. One of my most important perfume criteria is longevity. If a fragrance smells divine but only lasts on my skin for an hour, it's a gonna. I can still smell 'Miss Pucci Intense' on my skin at the end of the day. Therefore, it's a keeper. As for the notes, well it opens with Magnolia, Winter Lemon and Orange Blossom, with a heart of Arabian Jasmine. The base is woody - think Patchouli, amber and vanilla. If you're a fan of lighter, fresher florals, this probably isn't for you. 'Miss Pucci Intense' is potent, sensual and alluring. I've been mostly wearing it in the evening - it's the perfect accompaniment to balmy summer evenings. 'Miss Pucci Intense' is available now at Sx

How cute! Body Shop Lip Roll Ons

I've got to get my hands on these new 100% Natural Lip Roll-Ons, £4 each, from The Body Shop. Not only do they look super-cute (I want them all) but they promise softer, more hydrated lips, without any stickiness. Hoorah! I think I'll start with the holiday-in-a-rollerball Drift Away Coconut. Sx

Kim Kardashian Needs to Lighten Up

Is it just me or is the KK gradually lightening her once jet-black hair? I've just noticed her warmer, milk chocolate hue and while I'm a fan of her naturally raven locks, I must say it makes a refreshing change. Have a look at the pictures on The Daily Mail website here -

As I'm sure most of you girls will agree, it's always nice to lighten up a bit in summer. I wonder if Kim will be keeping this lighter hue for her impending nuptials? Sx
