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

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? …

Roses for your Skin

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 0 Comments

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 …

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 …

My Favourite New Beauty Finds

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 3 Comments

I’m always trying out new products for Ageless and many of them fall by the wayside gathering dust if I’m not enthused about them. However in the last few weeks I’ve found some new ones that I absolutely love and have become firm favourites. So of course I have to share these with you. First of all I’m really loving …

The Best Moisturisers with an SPF

Glynis Barber Skincare 7 Comments

Every dermatologist I’ve ever spoken to is adamant that we should all be wearing an SPF all year round. I did this for many years but in recent years I must confess I’ve let it slide. I mean I live in England for heavens’ sake. The winter is long and the skies are too often grey. And what about this …

How to get a Mid-Winter Glow

Glynis Barber Health, Skincare 4 Comments

I have to confess that I find January to March the toughest time of the year. The winter is a long gloomy one here in the UK and it’s really hard to stay upbeat, energetic and glowing with health. It’s very tempting to stay home in baggy pants and eat comfort food. And yes, I’m just like everyone else when …
