With lockdown 3.0 having arrived over the start of 2021, and no ideas as to when it may end, there’s never been a better time to overhaul your skincare regimes with ingredients that REALLY work.
The human body is a complex mass of systems, and everything needs to be working at optimal levels in order for us to feel and look great every day. Sadly, many of our lifestyle choices, and work commitments can so easily disrupt these functions within our body, and leave us feeling decidedly less than our best.
Of all of these systems the lymphatic drainage system is a highly important part of the circulatory system which helps maintain fluid balance in the body by collecting excess fluid and particulate matter from tissues and depositing them in the bloodstream. It also helps defend the body against infection by supplying disease-fighting cells called lymphocytes. (Britanica.com)
The Lymphatic system is made up of a network of very fine capillaries, clusters of nodes and glands containing infection fighting antibodies. Activated by the muscle movements we make throughout the day, waste cells and other toxins flow through this system, to be removed from our bodies to keep us healthy. . Problems can begin to occur when we spend long periods of time in one position, such as sitting at work in front of a computer, spending long periods of time standing on our feet or even curled up on the sofa in front of the TV. These sedentary activities all prevent the lymphatic system from doing its job, and as a result we may need help in boosting the natural detoxification process in our body.
Body Ballancer is here to help with a versatile compression therapy system that provides a touch free lymphatic massage. When Fashions Finest heard about Body Ballancer, and had a chat with the founder Jules, we really wanted to find out more about this relatively unknown form of massage, and were lucky enough to have a two week loan of a system to try it out for ourselves.
Jules sent us the control unit with the accompanying pants, though a jacket is also available to target the upper part of the body too. Our first impression of the system when it arrived was how impressive it looked. With a little reading of the instruction manual, we found it was very easy to set up and use. Climbing into the pants, zipping it up to the chest and starting the first programme was exciting and a little nerve-wracking as we wondered what to expect. The system came pre-programmed with a few different treatments. After selecting your preferred programme, and pressing the start button the system comes to life, and inflates with air around the body from the feet up to the abdominal area. The best way we can describe the experience is it feels like your muscles are being gently squeezed then relaxed in ripples and waves, one at a time. The massage pressures vary from low to high and treatment times can be set from as little as 20 to as much as 90 minutes.
Deborah St. Louis, our Director said “After the very first treatment programme I found that my legs, thighs and abdomen felt so much lighter, and I felt so relaxed. I slept so well after using the Body Ballancer machine. Even without all of the health benefits that Body Ballancer offers, this wonderful ‘free’ feeling after a treatment, and subsequent good nights sleep was worth having the machine”
Looking at the health benefits Body Ballancer offers, the team at Fashions Finest were deeply impressed, and even though we only had the Body Ballancer at home with us for two weeks, we can already see how over time, and use 2 or 3 times per week, regular use of the system could improve sleep, recovery after a workout, skin tone and appearance, boost the immune system and promote weight loss too.
Naomi Jeffery - Editor said "This has done wonders for my back pain. After I got used to the wellness programme's intense pressure as it worked it's way up frm my toes to my tummy, and the big squeeze on my abdomen, and relaxed into it - my back felt so released and decompressed!"
Fashions Finest loves Body Ballancer, the complete massage system which offers a host of holistic health and beauty benefits and is one of the best ways to not only boost your immune system, but also reduce bloating and water retention, improve the appearance of cellulite, aid better digestion and aid faster muscle recovery to promote peak sports performance.
With prices starting from £6,900 (inc VAT) it is definitely a worthwhile long term investment to improve your life and the good news is finance is also available. Alternatively, Visit their website to find out where you can access this machine at spa and beauty salons around the UK.
Meet GoBo. The naturally nurturing, a breath of fresh air for your underarms! Utilising the powerful properties of glycolic acid - already proving highly popular in deodorant products over in the USA - GoBo creates beautifully smooth and soft underarms that can sweat naturally without the inconvenience of embarrassing odour.
We girls have tried GoBo here at Fashions Finest, and we can promise that it really does live up to it’s promises. For the two weeks we have been using this roll-on, we have experienced the subtle, pretty but not overpowering scent, and all day freshness it brings. This roll on deodorant is the UK's first AHA-formulated deodorant that effectively eliminates odours whilst allowing your body to perspire naturally.
Pesky bacteria is killed deep within the dermis while the top layer of skin is gently exfoliated, removing dead skin cells - both of which contribute to the dreaded B.O. The result is a natural 'deep-clean' which helps eliminate deep stubborn sweat and grime build-up - ideal to detox your underarms from years of heavy deodorant use in order to switch to a natural aluminium-free deodorant.
Naturally nurturing, GoBo can also be used between skin folds and under breasts to prevent or neutralise body odour. For excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, GoBo can be used under an antiperspirant deodorant to prevent odour and then can be reapplied throughout the day if persistent body odour occurs.
Fashions Finest loves the natural active ingredients, which are actually good for your body, and not harmful, as many deodorant ingredients can be. Fragranced with natural floral waters, GoBo is aluminium-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free, essential oil-free and made in the UK.
GoBo's formulation also provides added benefits for healthy underarms, including helping to prevent in-growing hairs and painful blocked sweat glands and fading dark pigmentation caused by shaving
GoBo Deodorant is £9.99 and available from Lamonts and Co. Get online now, and do your skin a favour with GoBo Deodorant. We love it!
Fashions Finest has been amazed by the sheer number of different styles of Men’s winter coats which are available this season.
December is here, and we have all cracked open the first week of advent doors. Before you know it, the big day will be here…and some of us (you know who you are) may be beginning to panic about all the presents and stocking fillers, or Secret Santa gifts we still need to find. Even if your Christmas Gift list is all wrapped up already, there is always space in the stockings for one or two more little goodies!

Fashions Finest has, once again scoured the internet and high street to fine the most fabulous gifts, with last minute ordering still available, so that you can guarantee your gifts will arrive in time for Christmas.
The Body Shop
Our first suggestion when looking for last minute gifts and stocking filler ideas is The Body Shop.
This fabulous shop is quite literally bursting with festive beauty treats for everyone in the family, from the youngest to the oldest, the boys and the girls too. You are bound to find something perfect for your loved ones, even this late in the day.
Fashions Finest loves that The Body Shop are also making a donation from every single transaction until 31st December to their charity partner End Youth Homelessness. Over 110,000 young people aged between 16-25 years in the UK are homeless or are at risk of homelessness, and The Body Shop’s donation to the charity’s Housing Fund will help ensure the most vulnerable people across the UK & Ireland get the help they desperately need to secure a home of their own.
With a fundraising target of £150,000 we can help vulnerable young people in the UK this season at the same time as buying lovely presents – we think that seals the deal.
Here are our suggestions. We have seen and tried all of these products, and love them all! Whether you want to save money or splash out on beauty products – from vegan beauty gifts to male grooming kits, everything is in stock right now. Just follow the links to order now.
Fruity Lip Balm Gift Star
In this well presented star pack there are 5 deliciously fruity smelling pots of lip balm, which (almost) made us want to have a lick as well as a sniff! For £12.00 Fashions Finest loves that they can be given as a beautiful gift as they are, or separated into 5 small triangular gifts to be divvied out as stocking fillers, or as a part of a pick and mix gift. A versatile gift if ever there was one. We also worked out that for only £2.40 per pot of lip balm; you are getting a lot for your money with this gift!
Festive Berry Duo
A warm and fruity, Christmassy smelling gift, that made us want to dive in the bath and wash away the day with a perfect team of body scrub and small bath lily, and a tub of body butter in a lovely gift box for £12.00.
Fashions Finest loves that the soft scent of Christmas lingered on the skin after buffing and moisturising with this festive berry duo. This would be a great gift for both bath and shower users alike, and fabulous for a real Christmas lover, who quite literally wants to dive into the season – scent and all!
British Rose Hand & Nail Kit
A small and beautiful gift box containing a nail file and hand cream, and the scent of summer. Fashions Finest loves how quickly this hand cream is absorbed into hands, with no sticky or slimy residue. Perfect for a handbag companion. At only £6.00 this well presented gift box will be a well-received gift, and perfect for your Secret Santa, or as a stocking filler for a lady.
Shower Gel Set
A fabulous gift for those who enjoy a shower, this set of fruity cleansers will brighten up anyone’s morning routine. Fashions Finest loves the cost too - only £6.00 for the set. These shower gels smell great, and are thick enough to get a good lather up before the water washes it all away. A quality gift, or add on this Christmas.
Give a girl the gift of positivity! These little hair grips pack a punch with their bright colours and fun affirmations. Fabulous for a stylish young lady’s stocking filler, or as part of a gift. You could even buy them for yourself or your bestie, because at £5.00 for two hair slides, they are a small price to pay for looking stylish and feeling great!
Soothing Almond, Milk & Honey Gift Bag
This is one of our more expensive suggestions at £45.00, but in our opinion well worth the price with all of the products inside, as well as the bag. Fashions Finest loves the full range of soothing body products, which would make a wonderful gift for someone who has sensitive skin which needs lots of TLC. The lovely bag is a fabulous size, and can be used as a holiday wash bag or make-up bag, but if you wanted a smaller option, there are other packs available in the same range. With the delicate, creamy and clean smell of almonds, this beautiful kit would be great gift for the lady with either young or mature skin.
White Musk Fragrance Kit For Men
Fashions Finests choice – out of many – as a gift for the men. Although we wouldn’t usually go for anything musk scented, we loved the combination of lavender, geranium, musk and sandalwood, which makes this great smelling trio of shower gel, anti-perspirant and after shave fragrance. The end result is a deep earthy and aromatic woody scent, which we loved the smell of. Great at £25.00 as a gift for a man you know enjoys woody scents. It also comes in a lovely gift bag with a really interesting wood look to it. Just fabulous!
Camomile Makeup Removal Kit
We loved this lovely combination of Camomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover, Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter and a Muslin Cloth, presented in a gift box for £18.00. Our experience was one of fresh looking, soft and bright skin, clear of stubborn make-up too. Fashions Finest thinks this would be a fantastic gift for a young lady who enjoys wearing a lot of make-up, but doesn’t enjoy taking it off as much! With the fresh and clean smell, and suitability for contact lens wearers, this kit would encourage even the most unwilling to take care of their skin every night. The added soft muslin cleansing cloth is a lovely touch too.
Jimmy’s Christmas Iced Coffee Stocking
Family-owned brand Jimmy’s Iced Coffee have launched the ultimate coffee lover selection box – in the form of a Christmas stocking. Handmade with 100% organic cotton and with the brand’s signature crown print, the stocking comes complete with the full Jimmy’s Iced Coffee range and Jimmy’s sparkling Coffee Cola. If you are looking for the perfect gift for a coffee loving individual, who just doesn’t need anything, Fashions Finest says this is the gift for them.
At £20.00 each, and stuffed with different flavours of Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, the ready-to-drink iced coffees only contain Rainforest Alliance Certified Arabica coffee, low sugar and are poured into 100% recyclable packaging. The Dorset-based brand ticks all the boxes, from sustainability to convenience, to knowing who you’re buying from.
Fashions Finest loved the twist on some Christmas classics, like Jimmy’s Coffee Cola. This surprisingly lovely iced coffee concoction is a game-changing grown-up drink. We just want to know why we haven’t tried this before! A combination of cold brew coffee and sparkling cola, Coffee Cola has notes of cola nut and vanilla, with 50% less sugar than other prominent cola brands.
Get a hold of this grown-up Christmas stocking gift from the website, and have it delivered to you, or straight to the person you are gifting to, with a lovely personalised note added for free! A super easy (and delicious) Christmas gift option this year.

Experimental Perfume Club
EPC is an independent London based perfume house and open access laboratory founded by Emmanuelle Moeglin - a professionally trained perfumer with fifteen years’ experience working with international perfume brands.
EPC specialises in creating niche and bespoke fragrances. They have a host of different products and workshops that would make wonderful gifts, all of them bespoke!
Fashions Finest loves the fact that this gift is a totally unique scent – made specifically for the individual. We had a go at creating our own perfume, by answering some simple questions on the EPC website, to reveal our own unique ‘Fashions Finest scent’. If you are creating a present for a loved one, we think you should be able to answer all of the questions for them, depending on how well you know them of course…or you could just buy a gift voucher from EPC so that they could do the whole process for themselves.
From these unique aromas identified by the questions answered, EPC will create a totally Bespoke Discovery set, with a selection of 6 bottles with different scents that will perfectly compliment your skin and your lifestyle, and of course - are totally unique to you! For £36.00, the set also comes with a voucher for you to spend on your favourite full size scent. Delivery was quick, and the set come in a beautiful gift box too. The scents were perfect, and we loved every single one of them. The scents last the whole day, and we were even asked what we were wearing by relations.
If that is not enough, and you really want to go all out, buy your loved one the ultimate experience of the Perfumer’s Atelier for £450.00 (payments can be made in instalments) This is a unique luxury educational perfume collector’s set designed to be an ideal gift for both perfume connoisseur’s, or for individuals interested in learning more about the art and science of fragrance. The collection is a tool to help train your nose to recognise different scents, learn how they are used in perfumes and how they work together to create fragrances.
EPC bespoke fragrances are most definitely a fabulous gift for anyone. Especially those trend setters and fashion conscious individuals who would love to have their very own unique fragrance made for them, and named for them too!
These lovely gift packs from Tatti Lashes are all available to buy online, with next day delivery still available, so they would make fabulous as a stocking fillers, or even a secret Santa gift for the girl who loves her lashes.
Created by two friends who have been in the beauty industry for over 10 years, the aim of Tatti Lashes is to provide quality false eyelashes at affordable prices. Fashions Finest loves that every pair of these beautiful lashes can actually be re-used up to 20 times! There are plenty of types and styles to choose from, and the website offers help with training on how to attach lashes professionally too.
Even though 2020 has been a bit of a wash out for us all (maybe that is an understatement!) Tatti Lashes is offering the promise of a better 2021, by helping us to prepare for all our social engagements to come.
Tatti Lashes 'Festive Feels' and 'Naughty but Nice' gift sets are both £25.00 each, which is a saving of over £11 if they were purchased individually. Fashions Finest loves the fact that both of the gift sets contain 4 different best-selling lash sets, each of them are housed in their own individual and beautiful festive box, with a mirror, making them perfect for on the go use.
Both of these gift boxes would be great as a gift on their own, or split up into 4 different lash packs to put into a mixed gift pack, or a stocking. (Or just buy them for yourself! Go on – you know you want too)
So Eco Ultimate Brush Collection Gift Set
A beautiful gift for anyone who wears make-up with this delightful brush set. If you are anything like us, a make-up brush set lasts many, many more years that a bottle of make-up, and we could probably all do with a new set.
The Ultimate Gift Set is a comprehensive kit containing expertly selected tools to give the best make up application every time, presented in a beautiful gift box. The kit contains a collection of 9 essential makeup tools which cover everything from your complexion to your brows and eye makeup. With stylish, highly sustainable bamboo handles, 100% cruelty-free synthetic taklon bristles and recycled aluminium ferrules, this gift set really is the full package.
The Ultimate Set is available from a variety of online retailers including So In Vogue and Amazon, for £30.00 a set. Fashions Finest say this is a fabulous last minute gift, and ticks so many boxes, including eco-friendly, beautiful and useful too! A win win for any lucky person this Christmas.
No Secrets is a small UK brand, started as a result of founder Lorna’s search for beauty products with all-natural ingredients, due to her allergies to chemicals often found in cosmetics. All the ingredients used are 100% derived from plants and naturally occurring sources and free from preservatives.
Fashions Finest loves the No Secrets ‘Mini Home Spa’ available online for £22.00 each. This small but perfectly packed gift box contains a tub of bath jelly, a jar of hand butter and a votive candle. This gift would make a super stocking filler for the individual who has skin allergies, or who really needs to know what they are putting onto their skin.
The little kit is an award winning, skin softening and smoothing miracle in a box, and Fashions Finest loves that it is available in two of No Secret’s signature scents: ‘One’ – Fresh & Uplifting and ‘Four’ – Sensual & Calming. Both of which smell divine.
Art – De - Parfum

All the product packaging can be recycled and will degrade naturally, leaving no harmful imprint on the environment. The fragrances themselves are unisex, 100% made in France and can be purchased internationally directly through the website. Fashions Finest had a sneaky sniff of a few of the scents on offer, and they are indeed lovely and have no problem lasting throughout the day on your skin. We say they would be a great for the younger man or woman. Their taster pack is the perfect present, allowing someone to discover all 6 unisex fragrances from this luxury house, for only £20.00.
Fashions Finest loves that these samples come in a small gift box, and also contain a voucher for £20 off a full size bottle of your choice! (so the sample box really doesn’t cost anything at all!) Full size bottles of their scent cost from £114.00 each.
Happy shopping ladies and gentlemen, and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, from all of us here at Fashions Finest.
