Eve Lom holds a special place in my heart, because it was my conversation-starter to meeting Carolyn for the first time. We were introduced by a friend and scheduled to meet for brunch. Fortuitously, having arrived for brunch early, I stopped into Space NK for a quick browse, and as is wont to happen, came out with a shopping bag and my first box of Eve Lom cleanser.
Eve Lom, beauty blogging, and writing were some of the centerpieces of our conversation that Carolyn and I had that day, and led to my writing for TDO. It’s been four wonderful years since I started contributing. It’s amazing how one little product was able to effect such a change in my life (and skin), and a demonstrable case to how beauty is the great equalizer. You can be sitting next to a stranger on the subway, but a simple question of “What are you wearing?” can make her your friend by the time the train rolls to 31st street.
We’ve been lucky enough to interview Eve Lom on our site before and I still think her cleanser is the best of all time. But if I were to pull a “Kanye, Imma Gonna Let You Finish” Grammys moment, the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish would be the Beyonce to my Taylor Swift. Both of these British brands still reign supreme in my bathroom cabinet, so I urge you to re-visit their greatness in this original post.
