Tried and Tested: Paul Mitchell’s Limited Edition Hair Brushes

Today I would like to tell you about a limited edition Hair Brushes from Paul Mitchell’s collection. They are bohoo-inspired to help you create festival ready looks at the comfort of your home and on the go.


Paul Mitchell launched two summery hair brushes. I have fine, long hair I just love their Limited Edition 427 Paddle Brush. It is designed for medium to long hair styles and gives your hair a movement and volume that other brushes won’t. It is perfect for blow-drying my hair and it provides a nice, smooth finish. It is pretty lightweight to enable anyone, painless styling.

The second brush that Paul Mitchell launched this summer is a Limited Edition 413 Sculpting Brush. This brush is an essential in any handbag and its vibrant coral colour makes it looks very stylish. It detangles your wet or dry strands in no time. It is also great for blow-drying and finishing and as it is quite slim, it has a permanent place in my gym bag.


Paul Mitchell’s limited edition brushes are the new essential tools for anyone who wishes to get a nice, smooth finished styles and add some movement to their hair. They are this summer’s ‘must-have accessories’.

Tried and Tested: Jan Marini Rejuvenate & Protect Duo

Today I would like to tell you about the Jan Marini Rejuvenate & Protect Serum and Moisturiser that I’ve tried recently. I love trying new products so I was really looking forward to trying this range.

Firstly, I applied C-ESTA Serum based on vitamin C and DMAE – a powerful antioxidant cocktail which neutralizes free radicals to prevent skin cell damage. Other ingredients of this serum include: Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins (B6 & E), Tyrosine and Zinc. They are great if you wish to prevent premature signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. C-ESTA Serum is a perfect solution for younger, healthier looking skin and it protects your skin against future damage. In addition, Hyaluronic Acid stimulates collagen production for firmer, more resilient skin.

Secondly, I applied Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant over my Elemis moisturiser. It is a great weightless, daily face sunscreen that provides both UVA and UVB protection. This invisible revolutionary shield offers unequalled skin protection against toxins and decrease the risk of cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun. Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant is fast-absorbing and it contains microscopic particles for additional oil control. It can be worn with or without makeup.



£95.00 for both products and currently you can also get a free cleanser if you purchase a set.


Overall result:

I have been using Jan Marini Rejuvenate & Protect Duo for over 3 weeks now. My skin looks radiant and has a more even tone. I have a combination skin so I was worried at first whether the products will be too heavy but they are both suitable for all skin types and absorb quickly.
My skin looks younger and I’ve already seen an improvement. My fine lines seem less visible and my skin is lastingly glowing with youthful beauty. I even declined to wear make-up over the weekend as I like how radiant and fresh I look.

SkinHealthSpa Facial

Ultimate Facial at the SkinHealthSpa in London Bishopsgate

Today, I would like to tell you about the ‘ultimate facial’ I had at the SkinHealthSpa in London.

I was welcomed by a friendly receptionist who asked me to fill in the customer’s information card and then invited me to sit in a lounge located on the second floor. A few minutes later my beauty therapist – Lenka picked me up from there and we went to the treatment room located on the first floor.


So let me tell you about my treatment…

From what I heard from Lenka the ‘Ultimate Facial’ was initially developed for one of SkinHealthSpa’s long-term following celeb’s who was looking for: ‘something to combat the grime of make-up, shoots, studio lights and London grime’. The client loved it so the clinic manager decided to introduce it to all clients. The facial is used to treat lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, pigmentation, skin surfacing, pores, dead and tired looking skin and can be used on all skin types.

Skin Health Spa’s Ultimate facial takes around one hour and combines 3 treatments and light massage to finish:

  • Microdermabrasion Treatment
  • Balancing Enzyme Facial Treatment
  • Transderm Treatment

My therapist started by removing my make-up and then completed the balancing enzyme treatment. Following from that, she performed the microdermabrasion treatment which removed all dead skin cells and exposed a freshly looking skin. At that point she started my Transderm treatment. It was definitely my favourite aspect of this facial as she massaged a beautifully scented serum onto my face using the Transderm equipment. Lenka explained that: ‘Transderm is an alternative to injections for all mesotherapy applications, mainly skin rejuvenation on face, neck, chest and hands and cellulite treatments.’ My treatment was finished by a light facial massage and at the end my therapist applied some serum, moisturizer and sunscreen on my face.


My skin looks fresh, relaxed and the small lines from under my eyes appear reduced. I would definitely recommend this facial to anyone as an extra treat when you want to look your best. I will definitely visit SkinHealthSpa again in August before my wedding as like all the brides I want to look my best on that special day.

The only unfavorable feedback that I could think of is that the treatment room didn’t quite look as exclusive as I expected and the lights weren’t dimmed. It felt more like being at the dentists office rather then at the elegant spa. On the other hand though I went there for a facial and I was unquestionably impressed with the result and how my skin looks like now after the treatment so I guess that’s all that matters.


Price: £145 for a single treatment or £390 for a course of 3 treatments.

SkinHealthSpa also offers a range of other treatments so check out their website for more details:

The Freshious Life & Beauty range is packed with wholesome ingredients to ‘feed’ the skin with vital vitamins and minerals. What’s worth a mention is the fact that all the products are vegan friendly, gluten free and non GMO, containing only nutritious ingredients such as pomegranate, green tea, carrot, avocado and rose hip to provide premium skincare.

I was looking for a high quality and performance natural skincare that was full of the antioxidant rich ingredients that work. I’ve been using the Freshious 5-A-Day™ range for almost a month now and my skin looks and feels great. It is radiant, smooth and my fine lines look less visible. I am obsessed with my skin and always look after it well so the concept of ‘feeding’ my skin with a new skincare range really appealed to me:

“Because if you want healthy, radiant and youthful skin, you’ve got to feed it just as much minerals, vitamins and antioxidants as your body does. Skin really does feed from what you put on it”.– Freshious life & Beauty

All Freshious 5-A-Day™ products are made from the highest quality ingredients and are reasonably priced so I would recommend them to anyone who wishes to give their skincare routine a boost.

Tried and Tested: TheraPearl Eye-ssential Mask
