The Epidermal Blanket

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

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare, Treatments 2 Comments

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? …

Glynis Barber Beauty, Hair 2 Comments

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

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 …

Collagen Wave

Glynis Barber Beauty, Treatments 11 Comments

Radio frequency skin treatments are one of my favourites as they effectively tighten skin, improve collagen production and have no downtime with zero pain factor. The only downside is the cost. While it may be too expensive to indulge in a course every year, I do think even occasional one off treatments are well worth it. I’ve tried a few …

The New Natural Beauty

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 1 Comment

The natural and organic beauty product industry has become huge so there’s obviously a growing market for it. But how do we know what’s really natural and what isn’t? A lot of natural ingredients on labels sound like chemicals and vice versa. Are companies being entirely honest about what they’re producing? Well these are the very questions pondered by Grace …

I was thrilled and  honoured to be a judge at the International Natural Health & Beauty Awards which took place last week. I was given the task of trying out serums which I was very happy about as I love a serum. And oh boy, did they give me a lot to try out! A few months ago a huge …
