The Heaven Skin Care range is all about using the best organic products to give fantastic results. It uses a patented preservative method of essential oils and vitamins and is paraben free. The ingredients are specifically sourced in the UK along with the recyclable packaging, which helps to reduce out carbon footprint.

I have tried the Bee Venom Mask and the latest creation, SOS Oil. The Bee Venom Mask contains Manuka Honey, renowned for its soothing and healing properties, and the magic Bee Venom ingredient that works to control the facial muscles for immediate lifting, tightening and firming, whilst getting to work on frown lines and wrinkles. The SOS Oil is a new anti ageing product containing ingredients proven to repair and rebuild skin cells, add a tiny amount to your Cleanser or Moisturiser for a softer skin and a more even skin tone. This is the first in a complete new skincare range.

When I used the two products together I noticed my skin looked fresh and smoother and it didn't get oily throughout the day as with some oils and moisturisers so I would recommend! And the price isn't too bad either.

RRP Bee Venom Mask 50ml - £65      15ml - £23.30

RRP SOS Oil 30ml - £38

Forest Secrets

The Forest Secrets Personalised Skincare System is a capsule collection of "super serums" made with a unique combination of ultra-active, 100% natural and organic botanicals. Blending the products within the system together puts you in control of your skin's ever-changing needs and enables you to respond to environmental changes to really maximise the results of your skincare regime.

For more youthful looking skin there is the Anti-Ageing Starter Pack containing the iRejuvinate Plus Elixir and iRejuvinate Plus Serum, but I went for the Anti-Blemish Starter Pack (both retail at £70 - 2 x 15ml) which helps even out skin tone and deals with blemishes. To use, I blend the iRejuvinate Plus Elixir and the iBright Serum and apply all over my face, although you can concentrate on specific areas, before applying my moisturiser. This keeps my complexion looking even and doesn't get oily at all throughout the day so I definately recommend Forest Secrets!

If you you want to test the products to find out which combination is best for your skin there is the Try Me Set which contains mini's of each of the three products.

Forest Secrets can be purchased from www.forestsecretsskincare.com and at Urban Retreat at Harrods as of the 30th November both in-store and online.

Renew You

The Renew You 14 day intensive skin rejuvenating programme harnesses the very latest in anti-ageing skincare ingredients and unique delivery systems. It is a two week, morning and evening regime of 19 treatments that have been proven to dramatically improve the hydration, smoothness and brightness of your skin in just a fortnight. There are two programmes to choose from, Rejuvenating or Repairing.

Although I don't need anti-ageing products just yet I wanted to try the Pure Radiance as my skin has been getting dry as the weather has changed. I have almost completed the 14 day prgramme and I can definately see a difference in my skin, it looks brghter and clearer. The regime is easy to follow with a guide to show you which of the 19 treatments to use each day.

BENGT Fashion

Today I visited the BENGT showroom to view the AW11 collection of clothing from up and coming designers including Louise Amstrup, Eudon Choi, Moxton, Elliot Atkinson and Kyle Hopkins. Since BENGT launched in 2009, the online boutique has established itself as one of the fastest growing launch platforms for emerging designers in the UK and Europe.

To concid with the launch of the AW11 collection, BENGT expanded its artistic vision by creating the fashion video, below, 'Smoke and Mirrors', a collaboration with established music director Francis Wallis and emerging talent agency New Breed.
