Review: The North Face Thermoball Hoodie Jacket

I’ve been testing out some brand new technology from The North Face over the last couple of weeks. This is the Thermoball Hoodie Jacket – a light weight insulated jacket designed to keep you toasty warm whatever you are up to. I won’t lie. When this jacket arrived and I took it out of the

Review: The North Face Durango Hoodie

The North Face Durango Hoodie is a this-season soft shell outerwear jacket that offers some warmth and protection from rain, ideal for those in-between days when it’s not cold enough to need a hugely insulated coat but when you do still want to get moving. I received this particular one from Snow+Rock to try out.

Review: The North Face Vanadium Jacket

If you saw my recent post on the Spires and Steeples challenge and the fact that I failed (go read it here), then you’ll already have had a preview of the latest product I’ve been testing for The North Face. This is the shot of me with Mark at the start of the walk donning

Review: The North Face Base Camp Duffel Large

In this bag I have packed… three thick ski coats, two ski pants, two ski helmets, two pairs of ski goggles, twelve pairs of ski socks, all my base layers and thermals, a couple of micro fleeces, a handful of t-shirts, a hoodie, and a pair of skate shoes. And there is still room for

(It’s a Good Job) Beauty is Only Skin Deep

Back in January I made a very important New Year Resolution. I promised that I would be true to myself. I said that I would think about what I really wanted, and strive to get it. I said I would consider carefully who I was, and aim to be like that all the time. Most

Review: The North Face Women’s GTD Long Sleeved Shirt

This is The North Face’s Women’s GTD Long Sleeved Shirt. It is a lightweight running top designed for comfort and protection. Mad from synthetic microfibre fabric it offers UV protection and promotes wicking to keep you cool and dry. I have been using mine for a spot of jogging over the last couple of weeks

Review: Montagne Jeunesse Passion Peel Off Face Masque

LincsGeek and I don’t do Valentine’s Day. We like to think that our love is obvious and doesn’t require a throw-away card or bunch of very expensive flowers to confirm it. Cards and gifts are lovely, but personally I much prefer a surprise something rather than a “because my diary told me I had to”

Montagne Jeunesse Exotic Fruits

Montagne Jeunesse specialise in pampering for your face – they have now launched some exotic fruit face masks. There are three peels in the new range – Prickly Pear Peel Off; Pawpaw Peel Off and Dragon Fruit Sauna. Each one uses unusual but beneficial all-natural ingredients, and are of course vegetarian and animal friendly. Designed

Montagne Jeunesse Face Masques

Montagne Jaunesse have recently launched two new “ground-breaking” face masques. They sent me one of each to try out – I like reviews that force me to take some relax for a few minutes! The Dead Sea Mud Spa and Glacial Clay Spa masques are said to deliver a unique and enhanced cleansing experience. They

The North Face La Reina T-Shirt

I’ve never really had proper technical clothing until recently. I have my little adventures in whatever is sitting in my wardrobe. I shop to a budget and in sales and to be honest I’ve never really seen the point of spending loads of money on clothing when cheaper items “will do”. But over the last

The North Face Havoc GTX XCR Hiking Shoes

The North Face are very well known for their technical outdoor clothing. I used my £2 coin savings to buy one of their Nuptse vests in January, which I totally love, and they are one of the “go to” brands for outdoor enthusiasts. I was recently sent a pair of their Women’s Havoc GTX XCR Hiking

Kleenex Facial Cleansing Wipes

Have you noticed Kleenex have branched out? Known for their tissues, they have now produced a range of face products including these Facial Cleansing Wipes I got on my last shop because they were on an introductory offer. I don’t use facial wipes to cleanse normally, but always have them in as sometimes there is

Dermalogica Power Duo Exfoliation Kit

A few days ago I reviewed the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream here on Splodz Blogz – I’ve also been testing the “Power Duo” Exfoliation Kit by Dermalogica recently, also sent to me by John and Ginger Beauty. This limited edition twin pack of Dermalogica exfoliation products is designed to give you the best of daily and

The North Face Slippers – Down for the Feet

I saw these first on a fab surfer’s blog (Ashleigh Bennetts) and as I was already looking around for the perfect pair of slippers to replace my worn out Animal boots I decided to investigate. And I feel in love. And I treated myself. The North Face Nuptse Tent Mules are slippers designed for the
