Palmer's Cocoa Butter  - an old favourite but did you know it's also paraben free?

Cocoa Butter is enriched with Vitamin E and softens and smoothes dry skin. It can also help to smooth and blend unattractive marks and scars so that makes it a good choice if you're trying to hide unsightly stretch marks after a pregnancy. It feels thick and my skin always feels so nourished after using it - can definitely recommend this one!

Five star reviews from me for products from the Naked Bodycare range - all paraben free and made with 97% natural ingredients. I especially like the Love Me Naked Rose Body Wash.  I've been obsessed ever since someone bought this for me as a present and intend to try out the rest of the range....  visit for more information.

News today that women look their oldest at 3.30pm  on a Wednesday! To comba those wrinkles try Neal Yard's White Tea Enriching Facial Mask.  This nurtures dry and sensitive skin, locks in moisture and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines. The white tea contains antioxidants and has anti-ageing properties. You leave it on your skin for ten minutes and then rinse and you're supposed to use it just once or twice a week. Best of all - paraben free and made with 95 per cent organic ingredients. Enjoy!

I've never used a primer before but it really makes a difference to your final look and helps keep your make up in place all day. Try Sephora's Silicone Free Foundation Primer, which is free of parabens and synthetic fragrances. It's particularly great for oily, sensitive or acne-prone skin.

For a high end concealer try Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage - £26 in House of Fraser. This conceals any discolorations of the skin, as well as imperfections and redness. It's oil free and the two-tone colours allow you to customise to your needs. It's suitable for all skin types - you're supposed to apply after foundation.

Desperate to banish bags and those under-eye wrinkles? Try Origins Plantscription anti-ageing eye treatment. It's a bit of a splurge at £36 but the little pot goes a long way and my eyes are looking better already. It contains Anogeissus which helps minimise crow's feet, crepey lids and sagginess around the eye area. Best of all, like all of the Origins range, its paraben free.
