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.

IMG_5297

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.

Result:

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’.

I hope you enjoyed reading this review!

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.

Price:

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

Website:

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.

I hope you enjoyed reading this review!

Tried and Tested: TheraPearl Eye-ssential Mask

Today I would like to tell you about Therapearl Eye-ssential Mask that I tried last week.

You can use this mask both hot and cold and depending on the temperature you choose you will get a different effect:

  • Use Therapearl Eye-ssential Mask to help with eyelid hygiene, especially for the management of blepharitis, conjunctivitis or styes when used warm.
  • Also try cold for relief of headaches and cosmetic procedures such as eye brow waxing. I had a horrible headache a few days ago and it definitely helped.

Price:

The TheraPearl Eye-ssential mask is available from Sugerdrug for £7.99.

Result:

The TheraPearl Eye-ssential mask is a great beauty must-have. It is re-usable and moulds to the curvature of your face so for a small investment you will be able to use it over and over again.

I hope you enjoyed reading this review!
