Review | NIVEA My Silhouette! sculpting gel cream

It’s actually going to be pretty tricky to provide an accurate review of NIVEA’s new My Silhouette! gel, which claims to help you lose up to three inches on the areas you apply it to (Bums, legs and tums, basically),…

BATHROOM

(Rubin is a dog with a blog. This post is by him.) It’s come to my attention that Amber and Terry seem to be expecting me to pee outside ALL THE TIME. I mean, not just the occasional alfresco pee,…

bad-pr-is-it-to

This isn’t so much an example of “bad” PR as it is “lazy PR” – and ‘lazy blogger syndrome” too, if I’m completely honest. Over the last couple of months, our beauty blog,Hey, Dollface, has been going through a bit of…

More on pro-blogging and holidays

Yesterday I started planning for my summer vacation. Yes, I know it’s barely even Spring yet, and no, my holiday isn’t imminent – in fact, I don’t leave until June 2nd. But when you’re a pro-blogger, and run a blog…

Review | Johnson’s 3in1 Eye Makeup Remover

Given that some people actually use Johnson’s famous Baby Oil as an eye makeup remover, I guess it was only to be expected that the brand would release the real thing. They did that with their 3in1 Eye Makeup Remover…

PAWS

(Rubin is a dog with a blog. This post was written by him.) Amber and Terry are MAD. They’re, like, totally obsessed with my PAWS. “Give me a paw,” they’ll say, a few times a day. I mean, why? What…

Things We Learned from Neighbours

As some of you already know, because Terry and I never really grew up and left our student days behind us, the absolute highlight of our day is the 1.45pm broadcast of Neighbours. Don’t judge us until you’ve tried it…

Review | Lush ‘Sweetie Pie’ shower jelly

I actually bought this for my husband, because he loves unusual bath products, especially if they come from LUSH Cosmetics, but who could blame me for occasionally stealing a little bit for myself every now and again? Actually, it’s pretty…

HAIRS

Rubin writes: One of those days when they stand you on a TABLE and CUT OFF YOUR HAIRS! I couldn’t believe it. Well, actually, I could. I mean, I should have seen it coming. There’s been a number of comments…

Review | Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation

I normally buy high-end foundation, and don’t have any Max Factor products in my collection at all at the moment, so I wasn’t sure what to expect of Max Factor’s Lasting Performance Foundation, even although I’d read some good reviews…

Ralph Lauren Wild launches

Inspired by the spirit of the open road, Ralph Lauren’s new ‘Wild’ fragrance recently launched: I haven’t tried this yet, but it apparently encapsulates the scent of wild strawberries and juicy watermelon, so my mouth’s watering just thinking about it…….

TED

Rubin writes: This is Ted. Now, I know what yoos are thinkin’. Yoos are all, “Great bear, Rubinman – orange is SO your colour!” The thing is, though, Ted is NOT a great bear. In fact, me and Ted, we…

Everything including the kitchen sink

So, this Saturday is my mum’s birthday, so over the weekend I went to the shops, and this is what I bought: Yes, platform pee-toes: the shoes of champions. So, yeah, Happy Birthday, mum! And don’t worry about these not…

Spot Check! What makeup are you wearing?

Over at our sister blog, The Fashion Police, we’ve been running a Friday afternoon Checkpoint, in which readers tell us all what they’re wearing at that moment. It turned out to be a lot of fun, so I thought we’d…

CUSHIONS

(Rubin is a dog with a blog. This post was written by him.) I’m in disgrace. Again. No one’s talking to me. They’re still feeding me (feeding me DOGFOOD) and taking me walks and stuff, but there’s definitely an “atmosphere”….

Dollface Reviews: Redken ‘All Soft’ shampoo

As always, I was skeptical about reviewing a new shampoo, because, as I’ve mentioned here before, I rarely notice much of a difference between them. I swear I have some kind of shampoo dyslexia or something. Not this time, though….

SPIDER

(Rubin is a dog with a blog. This post was written by him.) I ate a SPIDER. It was in the kitchen, walking along the floor. I was like, “the floor belongs to ME, buddy”, but it ignored me so…
