The best of the natural make-ups

Glynis Barber Beauty, Make Up 2 Comments

I’ve been writing about natural and chemical free skin products for awhile now but not much about natural make-ups. And the reason is that I’ve not found many I really like. They tend to have dull colours with a sometimes weird texture and don’t look great when you apply them which completely defeats the purpose of wearing make-up in the …

Lucky me!  I was recently a judge at the Natural Health International Beauty Awards and given the heavenly category of Body Oils. This meant I was sent two huge boxes of the most fragrant and delicious all natural body oils. And trust me, choosing is a hard job! But someone’s got to do it, right?? Here I give the low …

A couple of months ago I wrote about Marie Reynolds, holistic facial and skin practitioner extraordinaire, bringing out her first skin products. The Epidermal Blanket, two skin products designed to nourish and hydrate and with either a copper or a quartz wand no less, to aid the process, is both as wonderful and unusual as one would expect from someone …

The Epidermal Blanket

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 2 Comments

Marie Reynolds is rather special. She combines top notch skin treatments (including my favourite Masterlift) with a holistic approach. She has a vast knowledge of overall health and looks at both the mental and physical health of a person to get to any underlying problems that could be affecting the skin. So when Marie told me she was bringing out her …

The Black Diamond Facial

I used to love a facial but to be honest I very rarely have them anymore. I mean in this day and age they’re just a bit….well….quaint, aren’t they? Why waste time doing almost the same routine you can do to yourself at home when you can have a wonderful and effective skin tightening treatment like Fractura Firm or Endymed? …

The legendary Philip Kingsley (he coined the phrase “bad hair day”) founded his world renowned hair clinic and treated everyone from Audrey Hepburn to the regular man in the street. And he was loved by them all. Now his daughter Anabel is following in his footsteps and has become a trichologist herself. Here she gives us some valuable insight into …

My First Laser Treatment

Glynis Barber Beauty, Treatments 3 Comments

I’m a bit of a baby when it comes to skin treatments. I like organic natural products, gentle treatments and I don’t like pain. And I especially don’t like downtime. I mean who has time for downtime? Downtime makes me nervous. What if the swelling, redness or bruising is really bad and takes weeks to go back to normal? What if …

Roses for your Skin

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare Leave a Comment

Earlier in the year the fabulous folk at Green People celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing out a special collection of products. A little set of cleanser, moisturiser and hand cream in either orange blossom or damask rose. I loved them both but have a special love of roses so was instantly enamoured with the damask rose collection. The collection …

The Serum Report

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 5 Comments

I have tried a LOT of serums this year. Dozens in fact. I was sent a huge boxful to try out when I was a judge at the Natural Health International Beauty Awards earlier in the year. And it was a hard choice to make because there were lots of good ones. However I still have them all and am …

Summer Hair

Glynis Barber Beauty, Hair 1 Comment

I just love natural, messy, beachy hair. And it’s a great look for the summer ( although if I’m honest it’s really my all year look ). I think if you have hair at least down to the tops of your shoulders, this is the way to go. I always think the less done hair looks, the more youthful it …
