Beat the knots with WetBrush UK

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.

Wild Cosmetics launches with new natural deodorant range

Wild Cosmetics is a range of natural deodorants that caters to the growing demand for high performing, natural alternatives to antiperspirants. The deodorants perform and are applied just like any other deodorant, but contain no aluminium, parabens or sulphates. They are vegan-friendly and are never tested on animals.

Wild has launched with a range of eight deodorants across Stick and Roll on formats available as a one-off purchase or on subscription.

You can choose from one of four natural fragrance options including Mint and Eucalyptus, Rose and Geranium, Lemon and Thyme and an unfragranced version.

Wild use active naturals to combat the smell of sweat whilst still allowing your body to sweat, which they see as a natural and important process used by your body to remove toxins and regulate temperature.

The Roll-On range comes in glass with refill bottles that will reduce plastic use by more than 80% vs normal deodorants. They are also working with a specialist packaging design agency to develop similar eco-friendly packaging for their stick range which currently uses plastic that is 100% recyclable and they hope to be plastic free by Christmas.

Find out more, and pre-order online at wilddeo.com or head to Kickstarter to contribute to helping Wild reach their plastic free target by Christmas

Fabulous facials at home… with Braun

Gently remove facial hair by the root with the epilator attachment for long-lasting smooth skin. I don’t think epilation with stop hurting with any device, but other than this, the tool is easy clean, nice and compact for transporting and getting up close and in your face, and its nippy enough to use around other areas that are hard to reach with a bulkier epilation device! 

  The sensitive facial cleansing brush gently removes impurities from sensitive skin. It’s the perfect tool for getting your cleansing products to work to their full potential. The bristles are soft enough for a gentle cleanse yet firm enough to get the best results from the product you’re using!

Glossier… Worth the hype?

It’s 2018 and I have officially dived head first into the world of acids & how they can really help with our skin! Bring along one of the newest most talked about products & brands… Glossier

This year they launched Glossier Solution and they claim to revamp your skin in just four weeks… In a poll by Glossier‘s daily Solution Users 3 our of 4 people stated that

  • After 24 hours – Skin felt cleaner & softer.
  • After 1 Week – Skin looked smoother, brighter and clearer
  • After 2 Weeks pores looked smaller and skin looked glowy
  • After 3 weeks – pores were unclogged and there was reduced redness and more even skin.

So we had to try it – especially after living for so long with massive pores on my face!!

Solution works by removing the dead skin cells that blocks our pores & penetrates deep into each individual one. Using a variety of Acids within the Solution such as Glycolic / Lactic / Citric & Salicylic Acid* – all chemical exfoliants ex the citric which modified the skins pH levels! (Please note as we’ve previously stated we are new to acids and we recommend EVERYONE checks out the products containing acids carefully and makes sure they will suit their skin before applying anything directly to your skin!) [I rely on other beauty boss’ that are in the know more-so about these things like Caroline Hirons & Alessandra Steinherr – reading and watching absolutely everything of theirs!]

We gave it a go and we are happy with our results so far! After using the product for 4-6 weeks we had the initial tingling sensation on our first week, whilst using every other day – a short lived mild tingle sensation leaving us with immediately noticeable smoother skin!

Over weeks two to four we noticed an array of changes such as smoother skin for longer, my smaller pores vanishing and the largest ones decreasing in size… it also has a positive effect on my old chicken pox scars and it’s helping them reduce down a little too!

Beat in mind whilst using this product – don’t use it on your microbladed or semi-permanent brows! It will fade the pigment a lot quicker meaning you’ll be due a top up much quicker than anticipated … I wouldn’t want to put that well spent money down the drain 😅

Another thing to consider is the time of day when applying the product! If you are heading out I’d recommend not using it in the morning! Solution makes your skin even more sensitive to the sun and glossier recommend that you wear factor 50 if heading out after application! – due to this as I have very fair skin I use it at night as part of my routine, after an initial cleanse whilst showering *no soap*, I apply Solution, then apply my fave serum finishing with a layer of a gentle colloidal oatmeal moisturiser from Cuderm or of I’m heading out for the evening I apply a blend of Neutrogena’s #HydroBoost Serum blended with the HydroBoost Water Gel as it contains Hyuralonic Acid which effortlessly hydrated my skin and creates a perfect base for my makeup!

The packaging really targets the teen market and is packaged to be totally Glossier from outer postal box to final product! We love the push down dispenser at the top too!

Overall thoughts… Worth the hype of it works for you!!
