We like to keep up to date with what the world of beauty is raving about and see what fabulous products are out there and then we like to look at the natural, chemical free alternative... so for the September Beauty Trends we have picked one from Harpers Bazaar and then compared it to what we believe will achieve the same results... but with no chemicals and at a fraction of the cost... what do you think?

Dr Michael Prager Urban Protect Acid Peel Mask - £150
This 'Urban Protect' mask is perfect for those concerned about skin tone, pigmentation and radiance. It contains three AHAs - Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Mandelic Acid - that exfoliate and stimulate the turnover of epidermal cells for a softer, smoother and more refined complexion. It's also formulated with Salicylic Acid that's said to reduce pore size, blockages and spot formation, as well as Sodium Hyaluronate to increase moisture retention.

Annmarie Gianni's
Illuminating Pearl Mask 50ml - Hydrating & Brightening - £39.95
This luxurious mask restores balance and harmony while creating the perfect beautifying ritual. Honey delivers complex nutrients and hydrating properties to visibly improve tone and radiance. Turmeric's bioactive compounds leave your skin feeling calm, making this mask ideal for sensitivities. Skin brightening pearl powder enhanced with uva ursi and licorice transforms your complexion to have an everlasting glow.

Turmeric - a long-revered super food known for its potent properties and skin loving nutrients, organic turmeric root oil boasts a wealth of anti oxidants and bio-active compounds that leave your complexion feeling calm, soothes and nourished.
Pearl - Traditionally pearl powder has been used in Chinese medicine to promote radiant, beautified skin for centuries. The impeccably-sourced pearl powder at the heart of this mask encourages topical glow and contains an antioxidant that boosts the efficacy of superoxide dismutase*, one of the strongest antioxidants in the body.
Mountain Wildflower Honey - this natural humectant from the Colorado mountains is equal parts nourishment, replenishment and purification. It helps absorb and retain moisture to the skin - plus it is rich in active enzymes and gluconic acid, a mild alpha hydroxy offering brightening properties.
Licorice and Uva Ursi - Licorice root extract and Uva Ursi act as a potent duo of skin-illuminators thanks to powerful, naturally occurring compounds that have been shown to improve the appearance of dark spots and temporary redness while soothing sensory complexions.

*Superoxide dismutase is an enzyme that helps break down potentially harmful oxygen molecules in cells, which might prevent damage to tissues. It is being researched to see if it can help conditions where oxygen molecules are believed to play a role in disease

Prickly Pear Seed Oil...straight from Morocco!
But what does it do?...

If you are like us, when you hear Prickly Pear, you might start singing Bear Necessities from the Jungle Book... but in all seriousness you will be amazed at what this oil can do and does do for your skin and hair.  
Psst... by the way.. we were really fascinated to discover that this is Nigella Lawson's skin quite literally, the proof is in the pudding!!
As well as using on her face, she uses on her hands and has reduced that "wrinkled-chiffon look", plus on the ends of her hair, dry elbows and cuticles.

How Do You Like Your Tea?
How Do You Like Your Tea?

Let's be honest...we all love a good cup of tea. Some of us like a traditional cuppa, or fruit, green and so on.

We tried Annmarie Gianni's Beauty Blend Tea which was surprisingly lovely. We also found that it really does give you a lift and you then crave it...but don't worry. ..there is nothing but goodness in it so craving it is a good thing.

One of the main ingredients is Yerba Mate which was featured in the Netflix programme, Down To Earth with the gorgeous Zac Effron...
