    Want to avoid botox and fillers but after some medical intervention for the dreaded wrinkles? Muddy's Nicky Richardson tries microneedling. But was it worth it?

  • Paula’s Choice (and ours)

    Troublesome skin? Muddy's Kerry Potter has two words for you: Paula's Choice. This little-known Canadian skincare range is the best she's ever tried.

  • The Soap Co

    The sleek monochrome packaging of The Soap Co's products have caught my eye, but it turns out this ethical beauty brand has substance as well as style. Lather up!

    This ethical Cornish company won multiple categories in this year’s Beauty Shortlist Awards and we want the whole goddam range!

  • Wouldn’t you though?

    This little beauty, Vanderohe No. 1 Nourishing Face Serum (£88), is absolutely brand spanking new - you're literally the first to know about this indie beauty brand that launches on 1 Feb.
