Spray di Sole :: Sunless Tanning Perfection, Naturally.

By admin | May 12, 2010

Submitted by Organic Beauty View Blog

My days of blithely baking in the sun smeared in coconut oil are a distant memory, though the sun damage that created unfortunately is not. Still, I can’t help covet that gorgeous bronze glow that always looks glamorous, healthy and sexy at this time of year and this at home, sunless tanning system from Spray di Sole is the perfect solution. The tanning lotions are all completely organic & natural using Dihydroxyacetone (Sugar Beet/Sugar Cane) as the active tanning ingredient, alongside a proprietary blend of natural and organic ingredients that includes pro-vitamins, pheromones and moisturizers that leave the skin with a beautiful and natural, sun-kissed golden glow. The bottle attaches to a unit that features an eco-friendly pressure sprayer which requires no batteries or power source, is non-toxic, ozone friendly and environmentally safe. The Spray di Sole signature formula is the result of years of development and formulation in creating the perfect tan. My vote? They’ve succeeded.  Writer :: Emma Pezzack – www.futurenatural.com: the best organic beauty products in the world.

Revitalash Review

By admin | May 12, 2010

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

Marina at www.MakeUp4All.com kindly agreed to review Revitalash for me. Thank you so much Marina!

It seems that it’s a dream of every woman to have thick, long, sexy lashes and I am not an exception. Unfortunately, my natural lashes are thin & short and I really hate this fact! That’s why when BritishBeautyBlogger asked me to review Revitalash I was excited to give it a try.

What is Revitalash anyway?“Revitalash is a unique eyelash conditioner that will help you achieve the natural beauty of Longer, Thicker, Fuller looking eyelashes. A very small amount of Revitalash is applied once a day. No matter how brittle, short, fragile, thin or sparse your eyelashes are, Revitalash can help you achieve your very own long, beautiful, healthy looking lashes.”

How does it work?
“RevitaLash Eyelash Conditioner is an alternative for those who don’t want to spend a lot of money on expensive lash semi-permanent fake lashes. Originally created by a doctor who wanted to help his wife regrow eyelashes and eyebrows after receiving chemotherapy, the product focuses on promoting healthy, natural lashes that last. Targeting short, brittle lashes.”
You can read about the ingredients and all the details about Revitalash at the official website http://www.revitalash.com/faq

My verdict
I am very skeptical when it comes to promises like this but, on the other hand, I was curious to see the results. So I’ve been using Revitalash for 2 months in the evening before going to bed as it was said in the instructions. And what did I get?
To be honest, I was surprised that it really works! I can’t say that I got the effect of extensions or false lashes but it’s hard not to notice the difference especially when I use mascara. I can’t say that my lashes are much fuller or thicker but I can obviously see the upgrade but; as for the length - the results are unbelievable.

Would I recommend you this product? Yes, but give it time, be patient and you will see the results. The only thing that I keep thinking about is - what happens when I stop using it.
The price of this product is £95. So what are your thoughts? Would you give it a try?

Simply Wax by Otylia Roberts

By admin | May 12, 2010

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger


I love it when something’s a goer, and these wax strips from legendary Otylia certainly are. Realising way too late that I needed a bikini tidy before I head off to France tomorrow, it just happened that I opened a press release on Otylia’s new wax strips. The PR very kindly spoilt me and sent over emergency supplies by bike so literally a couple of hours later I had all I needed for a home wax. The Simply Wax Hair Removal Wax Strips are £7.99 for 20 - initially I didn’t think this was very many, but after using only two for an entire bikini tidy up, I can see they’ll last ages. The wax is suitable for sensitive skin, smells a little bit like bubblegum and is ultra grippy so everything comes out in one or two pulls. Pull open a strip into two halves and one is woven paper, the other is clear plastic sheet. Apparantly it is the woven paper strips that yank out everything medium length and the plastic sheet that grabs the really short hairs. It’s easily the quickest and easiest strip wax I’ve ever done. I was also sent some pre-wax cleansing gel and post-wax oil - both of which are lovely without being exceptional. Celebrities flock to Otylia and always have done - when Hollywood and Brazilian waxing really hit the UK, she was the go-to girl, and women such as Kelly Brook, Mrs B and Gwyneth were regulars. I’ve interviewed no-nonsense Otylia for quotes for features on several occasions but my outstanding memory of her is when she appeared on a TV programme on women who remove ALL their body hair, and she said, ‘I look at some of my clients and think, my god, you could park a bus down there’. She is a funny, talented and very, very knowledgable woman whom I like enormously for being forthright and having a decent sense of humour that she isn’t afraid to use. Get your strip supply from Superdrug, Sally Beauty and later in the year, Boots. www.otyliaroberts.co.uk

Er, Boots, A Little Housekeeping Maybe?

By admin | May 12, 2010

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger


At my local Boots store I spotted this absolute mess of a display. If I was Garnier I’d be beyond livid. The promo spot is for the Garnier tinted Eye Roll On, and the liquid tint has been smeared, swiped and smudged all over the display. Despite two SAs within 3 feet of it, nobody looked in the least bit likely to do anything about it. It looks quite literally revolting.

A Little Moment of Bliss: Aromatherapy Associates Lavender & Peppermint Bath & Shower Oil

By admin | May 12, 2010

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger 

 


Without a great long-winded burst of enthusiasm, because if you are a regular BBB reader you will already know I love this brand, but a long steep in this fabulous oil is nothing short of utter bliss. I feel better for having it in my bathroom. Cooling in summer and just deliciously relaxing in winter, there really is nothing to beat it. I’ll shut up now.

CHANEL Eyes 2010: Inimitable Intense Mascara & Ombres Contraste

By admin | May 12, 2010

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

 



Ok, it’s finally happened - I have had a moment of regret regarding my eyelash extensions - because I won’t be able to wear the new Chanel Mascara, Inimitable Intense that launches in June. I don’t ever even miss wearing mascara, but I am one sorry blogger that I won’t be able to even try the guaranteed sell-out shade of Rouge Noir - blackest black with hints of red. Sigh. Other shades are Noir, Brun and Marine. But it isn’t all bleak, because I can, and will, use the beautiful new duos, Ombres Contraste. One shadow is powder and the other is cream-powder. I’ve got a sample of Gris-Subtil and it’s just a lovely, wearable dark grey with a contrasting dove shade. They’ll retail for £29, and the Mascara for £21.50.

The week prior to launch date (11th June), Chanel are offering customers a lash consultation - customers will receive a complementary 7 day trial of their chosen mascara and will be invited back on the 11th to have an eye tutorial.
