Bianca Matley

My name’s Bianca, Content Assistant on Beauty & Kidswear. Contrary to belief, I love Eastenders but wasn’t named after the character… heyday of hoops and ponytail quickly erased from memory. Times have changed (thankfully) and my desk is a mini department store – saving beauty disasters for HoF staff since the start of 2014. I’ll also spend part of my time cooing over baby things and loving the excuse to be a kid again, broodiness also ignored.

Skincare is an imperative part of our daily routines and more women (and men) are paying attention to what they are placing on their skin.
