Skincare for Menopause Awareness Month
I’m sitting here comfortably, waiting in the very Zen -like, luxurious ClinicBe, in Chelsea, (just behind Harrods, for the avid shoppers) waiting for the Emla cream to work. Today I’m giving myself back the 2 years of sleepless nights stolen by my toddler, along with all the self-inflicted stresses and strains of having a 6 year old in private school – still a year to go until seven plus but trying to keep up with the helicopter parents, pushing their children above and beyond and I’m in the same boat with a very unwilling (poor) son, rowing away frantically!

This is a post from last year but just an update as ReLuma is now available in the UK. Brilliant news. About time we had a real advance in skincare.

I can almost hear your reaction! I know, I know. I bet nothing changes. Of course it won’t. As my mother once said to me only a few years ago, she still feels the same way that she did at eighteen (funnily enough she almost looks it too and she still has that sense of naivety that is so sweet).

It makes you look 10 years younger or 10 hours sleep better, whichever you need. Charlotte Tilbury has a massive celeb following and she has earned it. Kate Moss doesn’t do adverts for any old product. It’s blown me away. From a girl who wouldn’t wear anything but moisturiser to a girl who needs her Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow every day without fail to look ‘amazing.’ Continue Reading
