A PRETTY HONEST REVIEW: Sali Hughes gives it to us straight..

About Us page component.


Sali Hughes, in case you didn't know, is one of the beauty industry's most respected journalists so when we heard she was writing a book, we couldn't wait to get our hands on it. Known for her straight-talking writing style and refreshingly honest beauty reviews, the book is aptly named Pretty Honest. Sali has successfully built a solid reputation for herself whilst being Beauty Editor of the Guardian and Founder of the award-winning salihughesbeauty.com.



Flicking through the book, it was nice to see the typical 'How-to apply..' pieces replaced with stylish photography and real, practical advice that every woman can relate to. Pretty Honest isn't just lipsticks and blushers either, although those recommended are rather lovely, Sali tackles ageing, hair removal, motherhood and beauty-counter shopping and as expected, all with a friendly, reassuring voice.

We were endeared to the book even further when we saw our co-founder and Brand Director, Kate Shapland mentioned in the Beauty Resources: Where To Get Real Advice chapter alongside some of the best names in the business. We were also pretty pleased with our little mention and it was great to see some of our brands such as T.LeClerc, Aurelia and Balance Me in there too.

To quote the author herself, its "beauty without the bs" and it's a must read.
