About Us page component.


As Mother's Day is fast approaching (Sunday 30th in case you didn't realise) we thought we'd share some of our favourite, most treasured handed down beauty tips. We all seem to have a tip or trick, a do or a don't that we've picked up from our Mum's so whether we stick to them religiously or not, it's these little bits of beauty advice that are worth sharing with girlfriends and family. To say thank you, treat her to something from our selection of 12 perfect Mother's Day gifts here.



'Define your brows!' I was told by my Mother. Your brows frame your face and set off other make-up. I love to use a brow pencil from B the Eyebrow Experts, in Indian Chocolate to highlight my brows and give them some much needed definition.

I regularly do the egg and oil face mask, which is a favourite of my Mum's: beat an egg, add a dash of cooking oil, soak a cotton bud in the mix and wipe it thickly all over your face. Leave it to dry then gently remove it with a cleansing cloth. You won't need moisturiser and your skin will glow .. It works!

"No matter what the time of night, you must always remove your make up before bed", this was my Mum's number one tip. Elizabeth's Daughter make up remover makes this super easy for me.

AMANDA - Fulfilment & Logistics Manager

My Mum told me "If you feel like wearing bright colors on your eyes, do, regardless of the looks .. of envy! "

ANDREA - Stylist Relationship Manager

When it comes to haircare, my Mum has always said "wash your hair at least twice - making sure to lather up well! She also swears by hair masks at least once a week, I love the Nicky Clarke Intensive Moisture Mask.

MELISSA - Customer Support & Fulfilment Executive

My Mum's advice was to put toothpaste on your spots to dry them out and if you have a head on one, pop it with a pin don't squeeze it!

KATY - Content Manager

"Your makeup's not finished without a lipstick" (or any lip product). My Mum's a firm believer in colour.
