What you get is so much more than you see.

The Wait is Over – Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream

A chance to pre-order Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream showed up in my inbox a month or so ago as Charlotte was gearing up for her US launch. This Treat & Transform moisturizer, a constant sellout, sounded like something I wanted, needed and had to have. I usually hate the concept of a pre-sale, but remembered the Wayne Goss YouTube video, which pretty much proved I’m hopeless with regard to the latest in skin care. #CantWait

The Fixer – Bumble and bumble DRYSPUN FINISH Spray

Embracing the change of seasons, I chopped half my hair off last week. With the temperatures dropping, letting my hair air dry is not an option so a new rotation of styling products is necessary.

It Takes Two – Olay Microdermabrasion Treatment

Katie Holmes being named the face and first ever Global Ambassador for Olay was one of the top stories in beauty last week.

It is perfect for those seeking an uncomplicated skin care routine that delivers results without breaking the bank. #VeryJoeyPotter

The Dragon’s Blood range may sound whimsical, but the beauty columns in fashion magazines regularly cover the Bee and Snake Venom lines from this luxury brand. Mornings of late, I have been using Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Water for a cleanse to soothe, hydrate and brighten. Formulated without lords, rings, or hobbit tears, this unusually sounding product is magical in its own right. #WorkTheMagic

Big in Japan – Cure Natural Aqua Gel

If you’ve wondered which beauty product sells every 12 seconds in Japan, wonder no more: it’s Cure Natural Aqua Gel. Asia, the fastest-growing skin care market has been sharing their staples over the last decade or so and nothing makes me happier. They have such fabulous skin over there! This gentle water based exfoliator requires a simple ritual but the method to its madness delivers results that may even have you chuck your traditional face scrub. #PureAndSimple
