Product Pick of the Week:Â Pai Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream* – this product cropped up a fair few times in my ‘Recommendations at the Ready’ post and to those of you who proposed it to save my sad, dry eyelids, well thank you. You got it right – any more suggestions while you’re on a roll? With just a rice-sized dollop massaged in twice daily, my flaky bits are being kept at bay and eyeshadow is back in use. Hooray.
Blog Post of the Week: It’s an all too frequentÂ occurrenceÂ that I’m running late, piece of toast in one hand, bra on inside out, so Amelia’s take on 10 Minute Beauty is something thatÂ resonates. 10 minutes, 10 products, I took notes.
Must-Watch of the Week:Â Mary Greenwell + CHANEL + a foundation application that has quite a klout to it but turns out perfectly = one extremely beautiful to view video.Â
