Brushing your teeth the natural and earth friendly way

beauty

Introducing Colgate’s first bamboo toothbrush – the Colgate® Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush.

The handle is made with 100% natural, biodegradable bamboo and is free from plastic packaging, so it’s a great choice for environmentally conscious shoppers.

The brush features tapered slim-tip bristles infused with Binchotan charcoal which get to those hard-to-reach places whilst gently cleaning the gums.

The stylish design of the brush has etching on the handle, acting as a thumb grip, and is coated in natural beeswax to prevent the bamboo from getting water damaged in the bathroom.

We love that Colgate are taking a step in the right direction, the brush is smaller in length than some making it easy to pack, and for those sleep deprived mummies and daddies you won’t need reminding if you’ve brushed or not as the brush looks slightly darker when wet so easy to check ☺️

The new Colgate® Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush is now available from ASDA and Waitrose. RRP £4.00

The solution to sleeping soundly under the stars…

What do you get new parents for Christmas? We highly recommend the @johnsonsbabyuk #sleeptightset packed full of their amazing #bedtimebath range which is clically proven for help baby get to sleep and to stay asleep for longer; plus a waterproof book and sleep socks for baby!

We love it, it ends a night smoothly and adding the sleep powder as well as a bath means our little man is super relaxed and ready for bed at a reasonable time! The book adds in a way that we can tie in a story too for quick web bedtime too!

Wild Cosmetics launches with new natural deodorant range

beauty

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

‘Best Waterproof Mascara: one staffer tested this during a SoulCycle class, and it stayed put. It also doesn’t clump, which can happen sometimes with waterproof formulas, FYI’ – Brides.com

Treat your hair and leave it fruity fine with Philip Kingsley

beauty

Get your hair feeling fruity fine with the @philip_kingsley pomegranate & cassis #elasticizer it leaves your hair feeling gorgeously soft, manageable and glowing gorgeous! The product is a pre shampoo mask, which provides bundles of moisture straight to the root, leaving hair intensely nourished, healthy and shiny, without being weighed down. Apply it immediately before shampooing, to African-Caribbean, Coarse, Fine, Medium hair; or overnight for maximum results!

Directions (from PK)

  • Apply before shampooing
  • Dampen the hair with water and apply Elasticizer in sections to mid-lengths and ends, ensuring maximum coverage
  • Cover hair with a shower cap or towel. The heat created helps the nutrients to be fully absorbed
  • Leave for a minimum of 10-20 minutes, or as long as you wish. You can even sleep in Elasticizer
  • Rinse thoroughly and shampoo and condition as normal. You can shampoo twice if you want to ensure all residue is removed
  • Suitable for use on coloured hair
  • Note: Do not use Elasticizer 72 hours before or after dying your hair as it may affect how the colour takes during this period only

Delve into menthol heaven and revel in amazing beautiful hair!

beauty

Solve dry scalps and boost your hair with the AM-A-ZING @growgorgeoushaircare #backintotheroots scalp masque, £24

The magic of menthol stimulates your scalp, lifting the roots and gives a refreshing cooling sensation making this the perfect vacation beauty treat! It’s a simple process – and only takes as little as ten minutes (I loved the smell and sensation so much that I decided to leave it on for 30 minutes!)

Washing it out (I really didn’t want to as the smell and tingling menthol was so good) was simple, usual was and rinse through and afterwards you can still feel the menthol working away. As cool air hit my head after the warm shower it was chillier but oh-so refreshing!

The results were amazing – from the moment after drying I knew this had some good and that the hydration wonder of hyuralonic acid had worked – as usually after I wash my hair, my scalp is instantly itchy, more noticeable if I go to bed after I wash it. The hairdresser had pointed out that I had a drier scalp on my last visit and advised never to let my hair airdry as moisture sits on your scalp leading it to dry out… (Now i never thought that could be the case!) In this case after application no itch whatsoever for days. I refrained from dry shampoo [self confessed addict – I use way too much] to also see if the condition of my hair would improve. It can get quite oily the second day, not helped by being super flat with no lift – and washing again that quickly only makes it SO much worse. The verdict: My hair didn’t need dry shampoo until halfway through my second full day! This is an unknown even before my pregnancy (recently it has been worse due to the hormones I think!) Also my hair had so much more lift at the root and wasn’t been restricted by my dry ole’ head!

Now can someone please order me endless bottles of this on speed dial pwetty please? I want to use it EVERY day!!! I’m also now desperate to try more of their products now 🙂
