Health with Sarah Stacey

Keep up to date with advice, information and tips on health and wellbeing for body, mind and spirit from Sarah Stacey, Health Journalist of the Year 2012.  


We say: try before you buy…

We’re celebrating. It’s summer. The sun’s shining. And after months of preparation, we’re unveiling the new Beauty Bible Loves Box, created in collaboration with Latest in Beauty and some of the key natural, organic and anti-ageing brands who’ve done so well in our books. (Or whose products we ourselves just can’t imagine life without. And we’re picky, trust us!)

Our mission has always been to stop making expensive beauty mistakes – and 23,000 of you have been involved in our trials, to help other women identify the products which do deliver on their promises. Now you can try some of the favourites for yourself… And we’re pretty sure you’ll have plenty to celebrate, too.
