Why I set up The Tweakments Guide

A couple of years ago I got an email from my friend Ellie, wanting advice on tweakments. What should she try and who would I recommend to do the work?

I’d been writing about tweakments and skincare for 20 years but had found that, suddenly, people weren’t just asking: ‘What’s the best moisturiser?’ but whether Botox or fillers would work for them and who they should trust. They were terrified because of media scare stories and because the area is so hard to navigate. They knew there were great practitioners out there, however, and that I knew them.

When Ellie – a senior newspaper editor with a stellar career – asked too, I knew what I had to do. I wrote a book on tweakments and created this interactive online resource so people can explore their tweakments and skincare options and find outstanding practitioners. I hope you find it helpful.

Who it is for

The Tweakments Guide is for anyone who wants:

  • to understand how to manage their face as it ages – or just to look a bit fresher
  • to address a specific concern about their face or their skin
  • to find effective, specialist skincare that really works
  • to understand their tweakment options and filter them for cost, location, pain levels or downtime
  • to find the best aesthetic practitioners – those I’d trust with my own face

THE REVIEWS

What people say about Alice Hart-Davis and The Tweakments Guide


I have worked with Alice Hart-Davis on many occasions over many years and her ability to combine a razor-sharp knowledge of skincare with journalist communication skills is something to admire. Her expertise speaks for itself, an award-winning beauty journalist and author with a sustained and excellent track record. Alice has this great ability to engage with everyone while at the same time does not let anyone get away with “blagging it”.

Professor Mark Birch-Machin

If anyone knows the science behind skincare, and how products work with the body, it’s Alice. I am continually impressed and inspired by the amount of effort and time that goes into her research, her knowledge on the skin is impressive!

Nausheen Qureshi

biochemist and founder of Elequra

Alice is a proper grown-up investigative expert with years and layers of experience and knowledge. She tries everything so the rest of us don’t have to! So she’s perfectly poised to share with readers what works, what doesn’t – and who you can trust your face and body to.

If I ever want to know anything about cosmetic procedures, aesthetic practitioners or state of the art tweakments, I turn directly to Alice Hart-Davis. I believe there is no one with such a breadth of knowledge in this highly specialised area of beauty – truly, there is no question on lasers, injections, or peels that she can't answer. Alice's passion, boundless curiosity, and commitment to best practice make her the leading consumer voice in a sector that desperately needs her clear sightedness and journalistic vigour.

Conflicts of interest

Tweakments and skincare are fast-moving fields with multiple new treatments and products being launched continually. They’re both complicated fields and, in the case of tweakments, a horribly under-regulated area, where people want detailed, independent advice about their best options. Providing a way for people like my friend Ellie to navigate these fields is the overriding objective of the site.

At the same time, this is a business and that clearly leads to potential conflicts of interest. Here is how I try to navigate these:

  • Products. The shop only includes products that I truly rate. Often, these are products that I have been recommending - in my journalism, and on social media – for years. If you doubt my objectivity, take a look at the consumer reviews on the product pages. Or, you could buy my skincare book and try one of the many products included in the book but not sold on this site.

  • Practitioners pay an annual administrative fee for listing on the website. I am approached by many more practitioners than are listed on the site but have only included practitioners whose work I know personally or whose work has been recommended to me by people I trust. There are many, many practitioners out there who are technically qualified to administer aesthetic treatments. Those on my list are the guys – the surgeons, doctors, nurses and dentists – are the best of the best. They’re the ones who I would trust with my own face.
