I headed to the South Kensington Club to celebrate some new additions to ESPA’s fitness range. This natural skincare brand, known for their gentle products for the face and body, stunning spas worldwide, delectable candles and reed diffusers, has long been a favourite of mine. Adding two new products to the ESPA fitness family, we celebrated the occasion with a dance class. Ten…

LISA LOVES . . . AUREILA’S BOTANTICAL DEODORANT

As a Breast Cancer ambassador, I’m conscious of the warnings when it comes to using aluminium-based deodorants. These are designed to plug our sweat glands, and are linked to a whole host of health problems. And so I popped into Aurelia to hear about their kinder, natural alternative for tackling sweat. Their botanical cream deodorant (£18 for 30ml available at aureliaskincare.com) is an…

ALL HAIL HYALURONIC ACID

  I’ve been using hyaluronic acid as part of skincare regime for years. It’s a hero ingredient in many of our favourite beauty buys, but how many of us really know how it works? Or, what it is for that matter. I’ve often found myself promoting its benefits – softer, more supple, younger-looking skin – without really understanding the science behind it. So…

In-Shower Beauty Treats

    Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing I love more than an indulgent bath time ritual, but sometimes, when time is tight, I look for products that get to work quickly. Even when I’m in a rush, I try not to compromise on my skincare routine. And so I’ve tracked down some products that make me feel pampered even when the clock…

LISA LOVES . . . L’OCCITANE’S NEW REGENT STREET STORE

  Breathe in the sumptuous scents of Provence with a wander round L’Occitane’s new flagship store. The recently opened spot on Regent Street is the beauty brand’s biggest store in the world, covering an impressive 6, 450 square feet. Stepping into the store from the bustling streets of central London, my senses were immediately soothed by scents of lavender and rosemary. Set over…

A LOVE LETTER TO ROSE

  Love is in the air. And what better way to celebrate Valentine’s than with the flower power of Rose. A bunch of these from a loved one is always a treat, though rose is a favourite in the beauty world, too. When it comes to perfumes, rose petals are put through an intricate process to extract that opulent, feminine scent. Back when…

Lisa Loves… Sunday Sessions

I caught up with Georgia Day from Space Nk to give her the low-down on how I like to unwind on a Sunday. I talk through my tried-and-tested beauty routine, from the moment I sink into the bath right through to lights out.   The Wind Down I start to wind down at around 5pm on a Sunday but it depends on what time…

THE HEALING POWER OF OILS

  Oil. Such a dirty word, isn’t it? Conjuring up visions of oil slicks, greasy food, deep fat fryers and greasy t-zones – it’s no wonder we’re wary of slathering it on our faces. But oily fish, olive oil, nuts and seeds, and avocado – all foods that contain good fats and a high oil content – are known to work wonders for…

BE A GLOW HOE . . . WITH GABBY ALLEN

Gabby, which three beauty items could you not live without? I don’t go anywhere without a tub of Vaseline. There’s nothing worse than having dry lips! An eyebrow pencil. I’m so fair that unless my eyebrows are tinted, you can’t see them. And even when they’re tinted, they tend to fade really quickly. Fenty Beauty’s highlighter in Trophy Wife. I use it as a body shimmer…
