Autumn is definitely my season. It welcomes the excuse to wear ruby, mauve and khaki green, coordinating beautifully with the ever-changing colours of fallen leaves. I will defy trends, however and wear dark shades on my nails all year round. They suit me better. And this bejewelled beauty from Zoya’s Entice & Ignite AW14 range is right up my street.
This is India*, a rich ruby with a gold liquid metallic shimmer that wows admirers as it catches the sunlight. It was a joy to apply – superbly easy and with a neat finish and smooth coats. There are six liquid metal shades within this collection – I really need Teigen (a cranberry pink) and Remy (turquoise) next.
Zoya polishes are one of my favourite nail polish brands. They are free of the five chemical demons (Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor) that damage nails and are vegan, ego and veggie friendly, and they are not tested on animals. With over 500 colours in their range – what’s there not to like?
Zoya polishes are £10.50 each and are available online at www.nailcareclub.com.
Once in a while something will creep up and tap you on the shoulder. No hype, no loud noises but it will surprise you. Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+* is something I took a chance on recently. It had been sitting in my box of samples for a long time, I’m ashamed to say but hey, better late than never, eh?
Well to say I’ve been wowed by this oil is an understatement. In a short space of time it’s transformed my skin radically. I noticed my face looks noticeably brighter and my skin tone appears smoother and clear, not to mention the elasticity it has been boosted with. It has also helped massively at reducing blemishes.
The oil combines essential fatty acids with super antioxidants, lycopene and phytosterol, making this certified organic beauty oil deeply moisturising while helping to protect against environmental free radical damage.
Used in the morning and at night, you massage a couple of drops into your face, neck and décolletage after cleansing and toning, followed by your usual serum and moisturiser. Believe me, you will see a change in a matter of days.
Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ costs £26.50 for 30ml and is available through most online retailers as well as John Lewis.
