Tamsin Styles and Glynis Barber ARK Products

ARK’s top 3 skin products

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare 2 Comments

I just love the ARK skincare range as it ticks so many boxes for me. Lots of natural ingredients while still having all the active ingredients needed in a mature skin. ARK has some really game-changing hero products I thought I would ask Tamsin Styles which are her favourite products in the whole range, as no-one knows the products and …

Garden of Wisdon - PHA Plus Serum

Meet the next generation of AHA’s

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare 3 Comments

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) were a revelation and literally life changing when they first appeared a few decades ago. They smooth and exfoliate skin without having to use an abrasive, physical scrub, leaving skin softer and smoother. And most are very gentle BUT they can cause irritation in some people. But now there’s a new generation of AHA’s Gentle and …

Why I love the ARK skincare ethos

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare 4 Comments

One thing that’s important to consider as we choose what skincare to use, is to ask “what does our skin need at this moment in time”. That may seem pretty obvious, but it’s surprising how often people will keep using the same products for years or use products for issues they don’t actually have. As we age our skin changes …

Glynis with ARK Skincare Radiance Serum

The amazing anti-redness serum

Glynis BarberSkincare Leave a Comment

There’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that, as we all know, with age comes a whole host of issues to deal with. When it comes to skin we are dealing with a skin tone that becomes more and more uneven (pigmentation anyone?) and a good dose of hormonal flushing. Pink may be a girl’s “favourite” colour, …

Say hello to a fantastic skincare range (video)

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare 1 Comment

I’ve been searching for a skincare range that is in keeping with the Ageless ethos but that also fully addresses the issues of ageing, mature skin. And it’s not been easy. The completely natural products I tried did not give the results I wanted and the more efficacious ones were full of undesirable toxins that, to my mind, undermine any …

Glynis Skin Under Microscope

My skin under the microscope (Part 1) – The reality

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare 8 Comments

Way back in February, before lockdown, before the new corona virus turned our lives upside down, I found myself on Harley Street with an hour or so to kill. I decided to call in on the lovely Lesley Reynolds, co-founder of The Harley Street Skin Clinic, to see if she had time for a cup of tea and a chin …

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare 2 Comments

Marie Reynolds is one of the most sought after skin experts in the UK. I’m lucky enough to have had a few treatments with her including her superb Master Lift. I was very excited when she brought out a few skin products earlier this year and they were as wonderful and innovative as you would expect from a holistic expert …

A gem of a skincare range

Glynis BarberDiary 1 Comment

I’ve tried so many fabulous natural skincare products since starting this site that I was becoming a bit blasé. In fact I have so many to get through that in all honesty I often only use them for a few days and then move on to the next ones. It’s frustrating at times and my skin has forgotten what it’s …

The New Natural Beauty

Glynis BarberBeauty, 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 …
