Gift the gift of great skin this coming Valentines Day Origins new Plantscription Powerful lifting cream (£50) which of course will launch on the day of lurveee! This is said to be a high-performing plant-powered formula that works deep within the skin’s surface to help visibly lift and re-volumise skin. The cream also works to boost moisture, pushing out folds and depressions to redefine contours of the face, soften marionette lines, and give the appearance of volume where it has been lost. I am currently road testing a tub on my mother and will report back in due course.
On the 14th of April MeMeMe Cosmetics will launch their new mascara - Dark & Divine. A high gloss, jet black, fibre-enriched formula and defining brush, the new mascara delivers lashes with volume and definition all the while separating and pumping up lashes from root to tip. At £8.50 it sounds rather wonderful.

Have a wonderful evening everyone.
