We’re so lucky that these days we have such a wonderful range to choose from. Here are some of my favourites that I have used at different times over the years: Neal’s Yard They are true …

Organic Pharmacy’s Rose Balm

Glynis Barber Beauty 0 Comments

When I met Margo and Franco Marrone from the Organic Pharmacy the other week, they were launching their new Rose Balm. I have since fallen in love with this little pot of heaven. I have become addicted to the glorious smell (rose infused with argan, calendula, rose hip and more) and have no idea what people must think of me …

Organic skincare

So, in the far mists of time (November 2012 when I launched this site), you may remember me banging on about natural unprocessed food?

Non Invasive Skin Tightening

Glynis Barber Treatments 0 Comments

I should imagine that most mature(ish) women, and frankly even immature ones, crave tight, sag-free, dewy, glowing skin, free from wrinkles and age spots. I would also imagine that most of these mature/immature women are rather less keen on actually going under the knife to achieve it. We live in an age where much of this is achievable. Hoorah!!!! At …

I firmly believe that eyebrows can make a huge difference to how you look. Badly shaped or plucked brows are very unflattering and beautiful brows can literally take years off you.

Boost for eyelashes

Glynis Barber Beauty 2 Comments

Eyelashes seem to get thinner, shorter and paler with time. Restoring them can make a big difference to how one looks. Of course, a lick of mascara can do the trick, but wouldn’t it be nice to have lovely lashes ALL the time? There are now lots of products that darken and lengthen lashes. Some of them make them quite (unnaturally) long …

Beauty Crush

Glynis Barber Beauty 0 Comments

My beauty crush of the moment is Nude’s new ProGenius treatment oil. I’ve always liked the products, being nearly all natural, but the newly revamped range is looking very promising and more high tech. The oil is made with omega oils and I have to restrain myself from drinking it! My skin is loving it though and a little goes a long …
