#1 Hello, is it me you're looking for?

Welcome to Lotions, Potions & Me (insert drum-rolls, trumpets and curtsey here) if you are looking for honest information on the big wide world of beauty, cosmetics, news and gorgeous new products then you have come to the right place! Why? Because I work in the fashion and beauty arena and I'm a complete beauty addict – but not just to anything and everything – no me I’m a lover of products and treatments that really work…… I will also be hunting out products and covering topics that relate to us women of all colours of the rainbow. Why you ask?

Well simply because there is so much out there that does work and I don’t think you should just subject yourself to certain ‘ethnic’ type stores like the Pak store in Finsbury Park or to Brixton Market!!! Yes its ok for certain items but there is so much more out there available for you in a less traumatic part of London that at least doesn’t have your beauty store next to a meat or fish store…..do I hear laughter? Yes you know what I mean.
I myself am not a novice to the whole what do I use for my skin dilemma – I find my skin is constantly changing and following a teenage reminiscent break-out a couple of years ago (I’m nearly thirty now so no I couldn’t take it on the chin and think ooohhhh I will grow out of it – its just puberty) I have been on a quest to find the perfect skincare, the right makeup and the perfect product to fade my scars, brighten my face and even out my skin tone and no ladies I’m not talking about bleaching!! Anyway I’m willing to try anything whether commercial, niche, expensive or cheap as pence as long as it works!
So stick with me as I start this journey…I believe this could be the start of a beautiful friendship…
Starting with now, here are a few beauty treats you can catch between today and early June as it seems a number the department stores have gone gaga over beauty.

May was beauty month at Harrods and with 10% off all online purchases at harrods.com during May – yay that includes beauty products, so it’s the perfect chance to stock up on your beauty basics. Hurry though; you only have couple of days left!

Liberty’s Beauty Hall is re-launching on the 1st June and it sees the return of old favourites as well as new arrivals – I will definitely be down there dipping my fingers in various pots.

Where Beauty Begins is taking place in selected John Lewis stores from 23 May – 7 June with many brands offering freebies *note some of them are with purchases - you can however pick up insider tips from Laura Mercier’s Barbie Laurino who will be appearing at the Oxford street branch from 28-30 May.

Finally, Selfridges’ 100th birthday celebrations will be ending this weekend 28 – 31 May with a Fashion Saturday which includes a special guest and a cabaret Sunday at 2pm in the Yellow CafĂ© – Lower Ground Floor.
Hope you enjoy…
