Eye creams have long been a part of a woman’s daily skin care routine but rather than wait until you have wrinkles and fine lines setting in, experts recommend to start using an eye cream in your 20s, as a prevention is better than a cure mentality.

Here are some of my favourite eye creams of the moment.

Having heard such great things about the Bioderm Micellar Water, I was keen to try it but let’s be honest, it is a little on the expensive side. So when I came across Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (and it cost about $9) I picked it up straight away.

Use the cleansing water with a cotton pad (I always like to dampen my cotton pad first to ensure I do not drag at my skin!) to remove all makeup and dirt from your skin.

It feels like so fresh on your skin, just like applying water but with the ability to remove dirt and oil (as well as makeup) in a way that water cannot.

My skin feels fresh and clean, with no feeling of residue left on my skin. I have quite oily skin and the micellar water cleanses without leaving my skin feeling dry or irritated.

I would thoroughly recommend this product and if you have not yet tried it, do check it out. It does the work of a facial wipe, cleanser and toner all in one!


Posh Beauty is basically an online beauty community that was originally set up to empower beauty professionals. It is essentially the craigslist of all things beauty.


Have you ever moved to a new area, been travelling, visiting relatives or traveled for a wedding, birthday etc.  and needed to get your hair/makeup/nails done?

When I first moved to LA, I hadn’t the slightest clue where to find reliable, reputable that wouldn’t destroy my hair (like a certain hairdresser did when I first moved to Limerick – Mark Peters, we’ll call him!)

So I went on to Posh Beauty and searched for a hair stylist in my area in LA. Boom – result!

You can search for beauty professionals across the US as well as internationally and what’s the best part? It’s completely FREE!


Not only this, if you are a beauty professional, you can sign your business up to Posh Beauty to be included in this database whether you own a salon or are just freelancing. They tweet jobs daily and have a beauty gig section that allows beauty pros to find amazing full time, part time and freelance work.
