Discovering Alex Steinherr beauty at primark

Back in 2018 we discovered @alexsteinherr new beauty range at @primark

The Pore Balance Cleanser, £5, worked wonders in only a couple of weeks and the Sleep Spa, £4 (50ml) was so good I had to elbow my better half out the way before he got his hands on it!

Fast forward to lockdown and we picked this up again to work it’s magic. To help refine my skin which has been a tad neglected since giving birth, and during the pandemic left to its own devices on occasion. Yet it still works it’s magic after just one use, minimising my (seemingly inherited large pores) around my nose and cheek area to smaller and more refined and much smoother! Now… we really need to check… is it still available?

Get yours now in-store worldwide inc Europe from £2.50!

The secret to beauty starts here…

 

There is so many creams and supplements which tell you they will help you stay young and beautiful. The truth is without water, none of this is even possible. Keeping to a healthy intake of water is hard but the benefits are second to none. Being hydrated helps your organs work properly, flushing out toxins and helping skin stay beautiful. There are mental benefits as well, which include increasing focus and reducing fatigue.

This is a 100% leak proof 500ml / 18oz easy open, smooth flow, OneTouch on-the-go beauty water bottle with a soft-touch ‘frosted’ textured grip, When you moisturise your skin, you are replenishing oils in your skin. When you hydrate, it replenishes water in your skin. Without both oil and water, you can still have dry skin. Therefore, you need both hydration and moisturisation for good skin care.

Get your skin ready for the day ahead and stay hydrated with one of our no-spill water bottles. Small enough for lunch boxes or for small bags about town. Open these drinking bottles with one hand, and lock them closed for peace of mind when throwing into a bag. Made from BPA free, phthalate free, non-toxic TRITAN, this versatile drinks bottle is odour resistant, easy to hand wash, has a vented, smooth liquid flow for rapid hydration, and a handy finger carrying handle.

The Ion8 Beauty Leakproof 500ml costs £11.99 from Leakproof.co.uk and available in 3 stunning pastel colours. Seafoam, Lemon and Rose.

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

I also took a trip to search out a new foundation. Souring the beauty counters of Debenhams and John Lewis to find a matte or semi-matte finish and a shade that doesn’t take fair skin to orange tinged levels as it really doesn’t look good on most let alone a ginger! I finally found a really helpful counter assistant who took her time to really match my skin, and introduced me to Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Liquid Foundation, £35. The coverage is seamless and can be built up depending on your preferred coverage. I really love the fact that I can wear this lighter as well as full coverage – taking my look from day-to-night without changing product. (Plus you don’t need a primer either!)
