Baylis & Harding

Bath products are one of my guilty pleasures. I love bubbles and anything that lathers. Add in a lovely smell and I'm sold.

My latest bath obsession is Baylis & Harding. The bottles look like Molton Brown on my bathroom shelf at a snip of the price. My favourite scent at the moment is Citrus Lime & Eucalyptus which is great for waking you up in the mornings. It is stimulating but not an overpowering 'man' smell. The smell lingers while you are in the bath but doesnt stick to your skin so you are free to carry on with your moisturiser without the worry of clashing scents.

Their pump dispensers on the hand wash and shower creme mean no product waste and also means, if you are as clumsy as me, that you wont drop it all over the floor...

The best part of these products, the price! Just £3 for a huge 750ml of bath foam and just £2 for a 500ml hand wash or hand lotion. They even have a floral spring collection which smell really fresh and not like your granny! Plus are all in cute packaging.

You can buy their whole range online here. I challenge you not to buy one of every scent!

Natura Bisse Intensive Tolerance Booster

Recently my skin went through a bit of a hard time not once, but twice. It was product induced and left my skin screaming. I needed somehting that would save it before I ruined it forever.

My skin saving product;

Natura Bisse Intensive Tolerance Booster

Natura Bisse are a brand who have focused on the need to develop cosmetic treatments that treat the skin from every angle. Their Intolerance Booster is a 'multi defence repairing serum that reinforces the skins natural barrier while soothing and deeply moisturising damaged skin.'

It is light, hydrating and my skin feels immeadiately soothed once I apply this. I use it at night after cleansing and before my moisturiser. The first morning after using this, i noticed a huge improvement in my skin. The horrible breakout was already under control and on its way out. By day 4, my skin was just a little way from being back to its usual self. After a few weeks

I am so impressed with the results of this serum and looking forward to seeing what it can do on a long term basis over a few months. And of course, the rest of the products in the range.

Megan Fox for Armani Code for Women

Megan Fox, girl crush!! She's the new face of Armani Code for women. Thats enough to make me buy the fragrance...

Megan Fox for Armani

You can recreate her make up look too..

"The signature red, Rouge d'Armani 400 and Luminous Silk Foundation N° 2 add smoulder to Megan Fox's porcelain skin, explains Linda Cantello, Giorgio Armani International Makeup Artist, the talent behind Megan Fox’s fascinating look. The laser cool blue of her eyes is accentuated by the modern smokiness of mixing two shades of eyes to kill intense eyeshadows (N° 2 and N°11). Finished with eyes to kill excess mascara (N°1). Her look is drop dead seduction."

Kebelo System

You've seen and probably tried the Brazilian Blow Out craze. Next up? Kebelo System.
Kebelo System is launching a simple and unique three-step process, completed in one simple session, which creates the foundation of beautiful hair - gorgeously smooth, frizz-free and manageable for 100 days.

'The first step is ‘cleanse’ – Kebelo’s Clarifying Shampoo prepare your hair for the Kebelo Treatment. The gentle, balanced formula removes build-up and fully opens the cuticles to allow the treatment to penetrate deep into the core of the hair. It has also been specially developed to be tangle free, protecting the hair from the damage the detangling process can otherwise inflict on wet hair.

Step two is ‘treat’ – Individually packaged and specially formulated for professional salon application, the Kebelo Treatment is formaldehyde free, keratin free and rich in botanical proteins and amino acids that are absorbed deep into the cuticle layer, reinforcing each strand and building the foundation for healthier hair. The treatment is locked in through heat sealing, preventing atmospheric moisture from affecting the hair and leaving it silky smooth, shiny and frizz-free.

Whilst other treatments can take up to three days to take full effect, Kebelo System is completed in one single salon session, so your clients can stand out from the moment they step out of your salon.

The final step is ‘maintain’ - Kebelo System offers two specially formulated aftercare ranges, depending on the hair type. Enriching Aftercare is for naturally dry and coarse hair and Revitalising Aftercare is for naturally oily and limp hair – each in a desirable take home box - consisting of Shampoo, Conditioner and weekly Masque.

Both ranges are 100% free from parabens and SLS.
The in-salon treatment will take up to 90 minutes and will last over 3 months... its all a bit hush hush at the moment but you can follow the launch on twitter and facebook.

Could this be the answer to a frizz free life?

PRP Therapy - Dracula-esque

Dracula Therapy. I'm sure from the title you can guess what kind of treatment this is...

The treatment better known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is known to rejuvenate the quality of the skin, reduce fine circles and fine lines using your own blood. Essentially injecting yourself with your own blood.

How does it work?

This simple procedure involves the process of comfortably taking a small sample of your own blood which is mixed with a unique enriched serum devised by Dr Roberto Viel, to create the Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. This is then re-injected back into the desired area on your face or body; giving you a naturally looking smoother and sleeker complexion knocking years off your appearance!

The science?

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is the very latest technique for skin renewal and rejuvenation, which uses your own platelets in a series of comfortable Meson-injections. This revolutionary treatment in facial aesthetics is a natural alternative to botox and fillers, giving a smoother and more youthful appearance.

The results?

This revolutionary procedure activates the natural stem cells that exist in the facial tissue, which then stimulates your own skin cells to produce more collagen and elastic. Your skin will be rejuvenated; lifting and brightening your complexion.

This procedure improves the quality of the skin and hydration levels, as well as dramatically increasing collagen production.

So, the question is, how far are you willing to go to look your 'best'??
