Treat your teeth to a present this Christmas

beauty, Christmas gifting

Treat your teeth this Christmas with the new @colgateuk ConnectE1brush which is perfect for the tech-savvy and time deprived parents! It uses #artificialintelligence to track your brushing and tells you via the Bluetooth connected app just how well you’re brushing and even teaches you how to do it better too!

Brushing your teeth is a twice daily occurrence for most yet we still may be missing parts and not getting that perfect brush completed… Throughout your brushing journey you get smile points for each brush plus a percentage of how well you’ve done with an image displaying yellow areas for any missed areas or where you haven’t spent long enough brushing! The coach even shows you the correct angle for brushing too!

Perfect for adults you can equally get the kids involved with two games to play whilst brushing! – They both encourage you to brush certain areas to do better in each game meaning you get fab brushing coverage whilst making it fun!

The toothbrush, which has been designed with the help of dentists, provides real-time feedback on your brushing habits in 16 zones of the mouth, even tracking regularity, your speed and the angle of your brushing. The Colgate Connect E1 Smart Electronic Toothbrush connects to your smartphone via the Bluetooth app. This helps you or your loved one (including the kids) to prevent dental problems before they start.

For a super smile this Christmas shop now exclusively at @apple for £89.95!

Beat the knots with this fab gift…

beauty, Christmas gifting

Introducing the multi- award winning @wetbrushuk detangler, the solution to getting rid of those pesky knots gently from your wet hair! I always struggle with this (and most brushes) but this beauty glides straight through with ease! Coming in three new monochrome designs and two original shades of black and pink there’s one to choose for everyone! We particularly like the monochrome patterns as they suit every personality so you cannot go wrong.

How you brush your hair is key to strong and healthy hair and the single most overlooked step in haircare. Hair is at it’s weakest when wet and pulling can snap it like a rubber band. This is why you should brush with a tool like the WetBrush detangler – that gently loosens knots without pulling or breaking hair.

The revolutionary WetBrush Original Detanglers utilise IntelliflexTM bristles technology, which make it the perfect detangling brush in the salon, in the shower, after a gym workout or at the beach. IntelliflexTM bristles are thin, strong and very flexible. They have adaptive flexibility – flexible on one stroke and firm on the next, eliminating all tugging, tearing, pulling and ripping. No spilt ends, no hair loss, just healthy brushing and detangling. This allows for over 45% less breakage, 56% less effort resulting in 100% happier hair.

The WetBrush Original Detangler is the solution, the moment you use it, you will #feelthedifference and you will never want to try another hairbrush.

beauty, Christmas gifting

PETROLHEAD is the perfect vibe for women who set no limits by seeking adrenaline and high octane excitement, whilst retaining an air of femininity and glamour. They are fun and fearless, pushing the boundaries whenever possible, knowing their own minds and not conforming to stereotypes.

Although you don’t have to be a car fanatic to love PETROLHEAD, – Mini 7S Class racing driver Jo Polley is the new brand ambassador for the fragrance. Founder and Managing Director of BYKATHRYN, Katie Forman said, “When I first met Jo, I knew immediately she was the perfect person to be the face of PETROLHEAD. We needed someone who exuded the vibe and you can’t get better than a professional racing driver.” Katie added, “Jo is very glamorous and feminine of the track but ruthless behind the wheel of her Mini 7S.”

PETROLHEAD Opens with a blend of citruses in the top notes, followed with a heart of conifers and jasmine, underpinned by spicy balsamic notes giving a warm almost oriental vibe. We think it’s a perfect summer fragrance for those who like a strong scent that eludes confidence and strength!

beauty, Christmas gifting

After long days and party nights revive your skin whilst you sleep with Beuti Skincare #beautysleepelixir it’s said to be one of Kate Middletons favourite go-to products after someone gifted it to her (it has anti-inflammatory properties which will work wonders after sleepless nights!)

This luxury face oil has a 100% natural blend of 14 plant-based oils, including a Caribbean coral extract which is a powerful anti-inflammatory as it neutralises the enzyme responsible for skin ageing, plus a sandalwood nut kernel oil to help prevent collagen and elastin break down. These are then combined with a generous amount of camellia oil, chia seed oil, bitter cherry seed oil, strawberry seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, blueberry seed oil, cranberry seed oil, raspberry seed oil, seabuckthorn fruit berry oil, sandalwood oil, lavender herb oil, geranium flower oil, neroli flower oil and capric trglyceride from coconut.

Personally the oily formula isn’t my personal favourite, but by morning theres no residue left, it is all gone and has melted into your skin effortlessly whilst working it’s wonderful magic. You can also wear it under your make up for a brighter dewy look.
