If you follow me on Instagram or Periscope you’ll know I'm back from a jam-packed week in New York, where I had a lot of interviews with press, a shoot with Teen Vogue and a personal appearance at Sephora amongst other things. I wanted to make sure my skin looked really good (especially as I knew my PMS face was due right before my Sephora appearance) so booked in for a couple of facials on the recommendation of some friends - who, naturally, have great skin!Read More | Comment

I recently noticed that a lot of the new skincare I've been trialling is designed for sensitive and reactive skin.
