How I make it work by Chloë Luxton of Bramley Products

We love a brand with a kick-ass woman behind it and Bramley is one such brand. Inspired by the beauty and therapeutic properties of plants and made in the British countryside, it a gorgeous natural collection for bath, body and home products . Masterminded by Chloë Luxton, who used to work for Cowshed, and now lives in Wiltshire with her husband and 3 children, Bramley not only smells divine, but has some of the prettiest packaging I've ever seen (which let's face it is important!) To find out how she manages juggling a small, growing brand whilst at the same time looking after 3 growing smalls, it's over to Chloë....…

A Beauty Editor’s little black book: Alice du Parcq talks fragrance, skincare and the secret to great hair

From the lowdown on whether high street products really do work to the secret to glowing skin, we asked her to spill the beans....…

Stop the search: This cream really works…

I first spotted this cream on Red magazine's Beauty Editor-at-Large Rosie Green's Instagram feed. For a beauty guru like Rosie to rave about a cream, it has to be good, so I was instantly intrigued. Good skin is priceless - nothing can make you look older/tireder/worse than a poor complexion, and equally, glowing skin can give you an almost ageless quality. Who needs expensive clothes if your face is in good shape? And this really lives up to the hype...…

Sleep, anyone?

Hello, we’re Natasha and Alex and we are obsessed with sleep. Show us a mother of small (or smallish) children who isn’t. I’ve yet to meet one. In fact, I’ve discussed at both a school drop-off and pick-up this week. We just – literally – cannot get enough; even if you are blessed with good sleepers, somehow you’re always left wanting more. Which is why we’re dedicating this week to the pursuit of sleep.…

5 of the best scrubs without microbeads

Rub-a-dub-dub, we love a good scrub (your skin really thanks you for it), but what we don't love are all those tiny little microbeads that pollute the seas and kill all the fish. Definitely not cool. So whilst many face and body scrubs do contain microbeads, many - very good ones, in fact - don't, which means that you can happily carry on exfoliating safe in the knowledge that you are one totally eco-friendly beauty queen. Here's our pick of the best...…

5 ways to get the glow

Now I'd love to say that looks don't matter. That it's what's on the inside that counts, which is all well and true, but there are times when I just wish my skin just looked a teensy bit better. Less 'gosh you look tired' and more 'I'll have what she's having!' which is why I've embarked on my own personal mission to Get A Glow. Or at least look a bit better and less like a stressed, grey person who Really Needs A Trip To The Maldives. And whilst I may still Really Need a Trip To The Maldives, I think I may have discovered some ways to get *that* glow...…
