Old English Company be beautiful*πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

Made in Britiain 

The world is a truly wonderful place and we're all used to getting what we want from the around the world.  Be it pineapples from Costa Rica πŸ‡¨πŸ‡·, cuteness from Korea (and skincare) or the finest champagne 🍾 from well France (otherwise it's just sparkling wine!)

However I am a British and I do like it when I come across a brand that is home made, and in the case of the Old English Company the clue is in the name - Made in Britain.

Stationery and more

Old English are a stationery and homeware company creating rather lovely hand lettered products.  Formed in London they are now based in Stamford, Lincolnshire.

From cards, to coasters, to key-rings and mugs, they make such lovely things.  Gifts for You, for Him, for Her and You again. πŸ˜‰

My recent finds

Old English have a range of fab make up bags/pouches £12.95 (equally good as pen cases, nail care packs etc).  Which as a Beauty Blogger of course appealed to me.

Made from 100% cotton and with wording on both sides they are a really useful size 22 x 16 cm

I don't know about you but I have duplicate make up bags stocked with the exactly the same essentials (mirror, hand cream lip liner etc) to save me swapping contents when I change bags.

These bags from Old English are perfect.  Room for all my essentials plus I love the big bold quotes which I tend to agree with (most of the time !!)

I have recently had a make up bag spring clean (quite liberating) and have chucked out my old grubby make up bags.

They have happily been replaced with these two smart black ones ones 'You Beauty' & 'Hot Mess' - there are more to choose from HERE

Any make up bag worth it's salt has to include a mirror and Old English have six to choose from all priced at £4.00.  My favourites are Be You and You look Scrumptious.

These mirrors are compact cuteness, 55mm across so can easily fit in your pocket on the days that you are travelling light.

Reach for the Stars

This quote means a lot to me, and to have it on a coaster on my desk with my favourite mug makes me smile:

a) My favourite colours are pink and black
b) I agree with and the words, to me it means keep on trying and doing what you love
c) It makes me start singing S Club! and there ain't no party like an S Club party ! πŸŽ‰

Old English have a huge range of coasters & placemats to choose from,  you and your favourite mug should have a browse HERE.☕️

Dafna's moisturiser Plus Plus Plus*

About Dafna's

There is a real person behind Dafna's skincare - and that's Dafna who created her anti-ageing line based on the Ayurvedic philosophy.  Her products are not only designed to be good for your skin but also for your general wellbeing.

Luckily for us Dafna hasn't kept her Personal Skincare range to herself and I have recently been introduced to her Beyond Skin Deep Moisture +

Dafna's Beyond Skin Deep Moisture +
(emphasis on the plus)

We all want our skin care to perform but when it's also a pleasure to use that's a skin care win/win ! πŸ‘
Dafna's Moisture Plus

In a smart black jar (to protect the precious contents against UV rays) Moisture Plus includes 19 carefully selected ingredients.

A biggie in the jar for me is Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is a super hydrater and helps with collagen production.  Dafna's HA is a bit special though as it is 'low molecular' so it gets in deeper to your skin which helps even more with skin plumping.

This award winning moisturiser also includes Neroli essential oil (one of my favourite smells) plus lots of other natural and organic ingredients such as Aloe, Bamboo, Argan and Rosemary oils.

Look, feel & smell

You really do need to inhale this skincare as it smells D-I-V-I-N-E, and it is meant too.  Part of the ritual that Dafna's suggest to applying Moisture Plus is to breathe it in.

Dafna's products are of course made to perform but they are also made to be enjoyed and to make you feel great.

There is a video on the ritual of applying Moisture Plus on the Dafna's website.  Although whether you decide to do it their way or your way, it is a pleasure to use.

This first time I smelt it, it took me back to the first time I ever tried Decleor Armoessence Neroli which I fell in love with about 25 years ago.  This smell of Moisture Plus had a similar impact, wonderful.

Along with my senses my skin loves it too, and it's silky texture is easily absorbed into my (on the dry side) skin.

This is how I apply my Moisture Plus

I take a small amount (it is rich so you don't need much) and smooth it across my palms.
Next I cup my face and do some deep breathing to inhale that lovely scent.
Then I press  it into my skin - neck, forehead cheeks
And finally with fingers tips I gently massage it in.

I must admit, because I love using it so much I often repeat the process again (or just give the jar a good sniff!!)

It's also really nice to use on my hands if I feel like a really good pamper.

Perfect to use AM or PM, due to the relaxing and Ahh.. feeling it gives,  I am choosing to use this at night as I have more time to enjoy using it then and it sets me up for sweet dreams. πŸ’€

Moisture Plus is also available in a Lighter Lotion.

Other products included in the range (not tried by me... yet) are:

  • Recovery Cleanser - a balm to milk cleanser
