What’s the difference between a serum and a moisturiser?

Feeding the skin with Belle + So Super Vitamin C Booster Serum delivers the serum deeper into the skin. A vitamin C moisturising cream doesn’t penetrate as well as a serum, lighter and more concentrated than cream Belle + So travels below the epidermis (the top layer of skin) and directly into the dermis penetrating really well and working its magic as it goes, plumping up and refreshing skin from within.





What it is and how to use it…

Belle + So Super Vitamin C Booster Serum is a complex blend of antioxidants, moisturisers, hydrators, phytochemicals and fatty acids to give skin a nourishing serum that works to promote new collagen growth, protect against environmental damage, reduce fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation and the signs of aging. Ideal for normal, dry, oily and combination skin types, Belle + So Super Vitamin C Booster Serum boosts elasticity, delivering a glowing complexion and firming the skin.

Vitamin C is essential for good skin health but as the body does not naturally produce it, Belle + So Super Vitamin C Booster is the perfect way to get all the powerful vitamin benefits. 

As an extremely powerful antioxidant it helps to protect the skin from environmental damage and the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are rogue molecules that have been damaged by toxins like UVA/UVB rays or pollution. One of the things they do is break down the skin’s collagen and attack the body’s cells causing skin cancer, hyperpigmentation, and other signs of aging. The aging they cause is particularly noticeable on the skin and though the free radical attacks actually start from birth, their damage doesn’t become noticeable until fine lines start to develop and the skin starts to very slowly lose its elasticity from your late twenties onwards.  There are certain free radicals that really accelerate aging such as UVA & UVB rays, smoking, stress and environmental fumes which is why some people of a similar age look older than others.

If you’re new to Vitamin C serums start slowly, this is especially important of you have sensitive skin and remember a serum is far stronger than a moisturiser. It is quite normal for vitamin C serum to tingle a little on the skin but using a good quality moisturiser once it has soaked in will reduce this sensation. 

Belle + So Vitamin C Booster Serum is highly concentrated with a Vitamin C content of 25% so to start with use it once a day every other day as part of your night-time routine before gradually increasing to once a day, every day. 

To apply, remove any makeup then cleanse and dry your skin, place a couple of drops onto your fingertips and gently massage into your skin (face, neck and décolletage). Allow the serum to sink in then apply a good quality moisturiser, Belle + So Jet Lag cream is a perfect companion.

As you feel your skin acclimatise or if you are already a regular user of Vitamin C Serum, increase the use from once a day to twice a day, morning and evening is a good discipline to follow.




Global fashion brand MissPap uses its namesake as a prompt to reduce the number of missed cervical screening appointments with its groundbreaking new ‘DON’T MISS YOUR PAP’ campaign, launched on the 22nd January 2021 during Cervical Cancer Prevention week.

The compelling campaign is urging women, trans men, intersex individuals or anyone who identifies as non binary with a cervix, to stay vigilant about their body changes and promote fearless smears.

The recently re-branded online retailer has designed its own limited-edition underwear and promises to donate 100% of the sales to The Eve Appeal, the leading UK national gynaecological cancer charity.

Inspired by cervical cancer survivors and individuals who have been affected by a range of gynae issues, the statement red brief has been created with comfort and breathability at the heart, with an innovative twist. An added functional flap with popper button detailing is key to its design to provide an easier way for women to be examined. Finished with an elasticated waistband, the knicker will be paired with a matching top and stamped with Misspap’s signature badge in nude and tonal red.

The powerful campaign message has been spread across social media with a unified ‘Don’t Miss Your Pap’ hashtag and has been supported by top UK celebrities, influencers and real-life survivors who have been affected in some way. Celebrities including Jess Wright, Daisy and Phoebe Tomlinson, Demi Jones, Seema Malhotra and Rachel Lugo from the Real Housewives of Cheshire, Samira Almighty, Elle Brown, Mandi Vakili, Karen Hauer from Strictly Come Dancing, Chloe Meadows, Clelia Thoedorou ,Courtney Green, (who famously filmed her smear test on Towie) and more, were seen proudly posting in their ‘pap’ pants alongside shocking stats to drum home Misspap’s life-saving message.

A staggering 1.5m women miss their cervical screening tests per year and a surveys conducted in the past have showed that between 70-80% cite embarrassment amongst other factors as their main reason for failing to attend appointments. Alarmingly, stats also show that over 600,000 cervical screening appointments were postponed or cancelled during the first lockdown in April/May 2020 alone, with 1 in 8 women who state that they are less likely to attend their appointment now, than before the pandemic. Misspap vow to change these numbers with the launch of its ‘Don’t Miss Your Pap’ campaign, and are urging anyone with a cervix to be loud and proud about their cervical screening tests.

“I’m so proud that Misspap are able to use their platform to spread the importance of attending your smear tests. If this campaign can urge even one person to attend their cervical screening appointment, then it’s a job well done. Our aim is to diminish the stigma around smear tests and the fear and embarrassment that surrounds it. We want women everywhere to feel completely confident and empowered when talking about their cervical screening test- whether that’s in the workplace or amongst close friends, we have a duty as women to support one another and we hope that our campaign just does that. We hope that the launch of our ‘Don’t Miss Your Pap’ underwear, we raise money for a brilliant charity but more importantly hammer home that we must attend our smear tests.” – CEO of Misspap, Sam Helligso

The ‘Don’t Miss Your Pap’ campaign launches during Cervical Cancer Prevention week on the 22nd January with limited edition underwear available from their website for £18 for the set.

Misspap will donate 100% of the sales of the Misspap Pap set to The Eve Appeal’s Reg. Charity. No 1091708



Beautonomy believes that: the beauty industry tells you to be yourself, but sells you things to look like everyone else. We’re going to change that. Here’s what they have to say…

We are very proud of our customisable eyeshadow palettes. Our online customiser allows our customers to have complete autonomy over their palette, which is what makes us different from other eyeshadow brands. Firstly, our customers are able to choose every individual shade in their palette. This eliminates the wastefulness of buying a palette with lots of shades you don’t use. Secondly, customers are able to add any image or design of their choice to the front of the palette, making it completely unique. Customers are also able to name every shade they choose, so our generic shade names can be removed and made into something personal and fun. We believe that being able to create your own product makes the process much more exciting than buying a palette from a highstreet brand. The end result is a creation that is both personal and useful. 

Beautonomy was started by a larger company, and then taken over by our wonderful owners Tom and Kiemu. Neither Tom nor Kiemu came from beauty backgrounds, but they decided to take on the challenge of growing their own company. Two years down the line, Tom and Kiemu are now joined by five other full time employees, including Tom’s sister, as well as a few very helpful part time designers from all over the world. As a small, family run business, values, quality and care are all very important to us. We will speak out on matters we care about, such as the Black Lives Matter movement, or supporting artists in this trying time. This is probably best reflected via our Instagram, which we use as our main platform for voicing our opinions, as well as to support our creators, and of course promote our products.  

Based in Camberwell, we print the palettes here ourselves, so there’s a lot going on in the office! As a small, young team, we all chip in where we can, and jobs are shared out evenly between us. We’re all very keen to help each other out with packing, printing, writing, or anything that’s thrown at us! We also do everything ourselves: from choosing the shades, to printing packing labels, to creating our Instagram content and everything in between. 

At Beautonomy we believe that high quality makeup should be accessible to everyone. So, we sell our palettes from £19.99 each, making them affordable as they can be. This gives people on any budget the opportunity to create their dream makeup looks without having to spend a fortune. But, we are big believers in quality over quantity, so even though our palettes are in a lower price bracket, our shades are still creamy and pigmented!

We hope that customers enjoy our product, and the creative process of making it!










No need to rub that magic lamp and wish for perfect hair anymore, this GENi has you covered…

No, you’re not dreaming you really can say goodbye to those straighteners and expensive blow-dries once and for all… because from revolutionary hair and beauty company GENi Hair comes a brand new, world exclusive frizz-free do-at-home hair kit.

With just one incredibly simple application in your own home you can eliminate frizz and dryness, whilst achieving long-lasting volume and incredible silkiness for up to 12 washes all without the need for straighteners or a trip to the salon. It’s a game changer!

The GENi hair kit includes a smoother and a leave-in treatment which transforms hair and extensions in only 20 minutes for a salon-quality finish on all hair types. With over 28,000 followers on Instagram eagerly anticipating the release, find out why so many are abandoning their usual hair products for this exclusive new formula.

This genius formula – applied after washing to damp hair – eliminates the frizz from your locks leaving them extra silky while pumping up the volume and shine with no nasty side effects.


GENi Hair Active Technology: The Science Bit

This is a world-first original and unique formula, an innovative use of raw materials and brand new application system exclusive to GENi Hair. The active, L-Cysteine, is absorbed by the hair and because it is in an acidic mean (ph 2.00-3.00) it acts on the hydrogen and salt bridges breaking the structure. With the application of heat from a hair-dryer the connection is restructured with a new configuration. The transformation of the bonds are not permanent since the hydrogen and saline bonds are the weakest bonds in the hair strand, meaning, the results will last up to 12 washes.
