    Tsubaki Oil is also commonly known as Japanese Camellia Oil. It is a rich source of Fatty Acids and Antioxidants which are essential for restoring and maintaining healthy cell function. As a result, the oil is great in helping to target and combat signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. Tsubaki Oil is also an excellent source of moisture and hydration for both skin and hair. This means it helps skin to stay plumped-up and radiant, and hair shiny and lustrous.

    If you want to try out the skin benefits of Tsubaki Oil, then Elizabeth Arden’s All-Over Miracle Oil is the perfect way to start. It contains a base of Tsubaki Oil and is multi purpose so you can make your skin glow and your hair shine.

Skincare Specialist

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
