As a beauty expert I spend my time recommending products that will suit you. If you have ever wondered what products I use on myself, you know, the kind of product you love sooo much that you just have to squeeze the very last drop out of the tube – and next time you order in bulk so you never risk running out…well, here are the ones that pass my test.
Percy & Reed Strengthening Scalp Concentrate
My hair has fallen out a couple of times and the most recent time was just before Christmas when I broke my neck. It fell out for three weeks and the day I started using this Scalp Concentrate (my first one came as a press sample) was the day it stopped falling out. It could be a coincidence, but I have kept using it and have bought some since and the hair regrowth has been fantastic. Best of all it’s quick and easy and it’s not sticky!
Bobbie Brown Serum Foundation
I love this Serum foundation so much that I buy them in multiples. My colours are Sand and Warm Sand. It’s a light to medium coverage foundation that leaves your skin feeling supple and soft with a dewy, fresh look plus it has SPF40 and Hyaluronic Acid so its a great multi-tasker too. I use equally for home and for press shoots. There is currently a special offer on this product – click here to find out more.
Nails Inc Back to Life Recovery Treatment
My go-to nail recovery product is always in stock at home – its a brilliant base coat too. I pair it with the Nails Inc Superfood Repair Oil on cuticles to ensure my nails are moisturised from the base up.
Molton Brown Milk Musk
I have purchased this so many times – it feels like an expensive and luxurious cashmere wrap. Floral, musky cedarwood notes – unique and subtle, when you get compliments consistently over the years with a particular product, you know it’s a winner. Currently on special offer – click here for more info.
Paula’s choice 20% Niacinamide Treatment
I have tried a lot of different types of this key trend ingredient which comes in different percentages – this is a strong one. It’s brilliant for treating that orange peel look that skin can get around the chin area or enlarged pores on the forehead and it’s great with pigmentation. It’s an overall skin improver, particularly if you have older skin. I can see the difference in just one nights application. My skin is rosy, bright and tighter the next morning.
Philosophy Microdelivery Peel Kit
This one is a two-parter, I have been gifted this one over the years and I have bought it many times – it gives you a really good exfoliation. It gets into the nooks and crannies and open pores and will last you about 3 months if you use it two or three times a week. I use it a few nights in a row before a photo shoot to get really great results.
Weleda Rose Spray
Yes it’s a deodorant, I know, but it’s one without aluminium salts so it’s gentle. It’s more like a gorgeous body mist. Great for misting when you are sweating from a good horse ride, the menopause or just because it’s summer. Spray it everywhere, all over the body, under your bra, wherever you get sweaty – and of course under your arms. The best price I have found is on Amazon – click here.
Aromatherapy Associates Revive Oil
This one is no surprise. This is the main oil that I use when I am working. Great to use if you are working from home. I pop it into my Aromatherapy Associates atomiser – click here – or if you don’t have one, you could pop a couple of drops in a saucer of hot water – plus the Revive Massage and Body Oil is another great option on pulse points.

What shampoo is best for menopausal hair thanks
Such a great variety of products Alison, thank you. I’d love to see this each month from you and you’ve inspired me to buy the Weleda rose deodorant to try and help during any hot flushes. Thanks again and hoping you’re still making a speedy, full recovery from your recent accident, Emma x
