We review: Spring essentials
Looking to spring clean your beauty routine? Well, while you’re busy tossing out all those half-used shampoo bottles and neglected facial oils, don't forget to make room for some brand new beauty updates.
This month, we’re sharing the products that have made their way onto our top shelves. From the shampoo and conditioner that left bh’s Kate’s hair really shiny, to the facial bar that bh’s Eloise loves for her sensitive skin, the facial serum that bh’s Rosie is addicted to using, and the natural whitening toothpaste that bh’s Sophie has already reordered.
bh’s Kate says:
“I've tried my fair share of shampoo and conditioner and I'm always searching for the ultimate duo. As I have multiple hair concerns, it can be hard to find a hair duo that will address all my needs. I have thick, colour-treated hair with oily roots and dry ends that often lacks in volume. And while there are a million and one products for each hair concern, it's hard to find a pair that will work for all my hair concerns. Most often, I will use a colour-focused shampoo because my hair is dyed blonde (shhh!) but this won't often help with my oily roots or my desperate need for volume. But the TLW Laughter is Best Shampoo and Winter is Coming Conditioner have made my routine far more streamlined because they can do it all!
The formula in the shampoo gives my hair a really deep clean while also addressing my colour concerns. The shampoo also gets into my dry ends and contains keratin and silk proteins that leave my hair feeling soft and strong. After following it with the conditioner, which smoothes and gets rid of any tangles, my hair looks ridiculously shiny. And I mean really shiny! I love that I've finally found a duo that can target my multiple hair issues. It's also really lightweight so it doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy, lank or weighed down and it smells amazing. The packaging is also super cute and looks great in my shower. Definitely a must-try for everyone struggling to find a do-it-all hair care duo.”
bh’s Eloise says:
“I adore this Pure Essence Vivid Spring Regenerate Facial Bar! Firstly, the packaging is super cute! It is encased in clear but decorative plastic, which means you get a chance to see the soap before you buy it (let’s be honest, we all judge a book by its cover). All of the Pure Essence soaps are packaged this way, so if you’re into your bathroom aesthetics, you can pick a soap to match your style! This one in particular is a bright pop of orange and yellow. I am a huge fan of essential oils and this soap is crammed full of them! There’s sandalwood, bergamot, ylang ylang and geranium essential oils. They’re great for boosting blood circulation and metabolism. The best part is, the soap smells delicious! It makes me feel like I have an essential oil diffuser running in the bathroom. Since using this soap I can see a big difference in my skin. It is normally quite dry and dull but is looking brighter and feeling way more hydrated. I also have quite sensitive skin but haven’t had any irritation whatsoever! I use this soap every night and am excited to see even more results!”
bh’s Rosie says:
“As I get older, my skin is becoming more dry, so I'm always on the hunt for the perfect facial oil for treating my fine lines, dullness and dry skin. This serum duo has been helping to supercharge my routine as the Pro-10 C Serum helps to reduce pigmentation and fine lines, and the Squalene Plus helps to deeply hydrate and nourish my parched skin. Both of the serums are really lightweight, which makes them perfect for layering under my makeup during the day, while leaving my skin feeling super replenished at night. I've been using two drops of the Pro-10 C Serum, followed by two drops of the Squalene Plus and massaging them into my entire face, neck and chest. I've been using this duo for just over two weeks now, and I've definitely noticed that my skin looks and feels brighter and more hydrated, even during this cold snap!”
bh’s Sophie says:
“I’m always on the lookout for beauty products that are environmentally friendly and free from harsh chemicals. So when the White Glo Pure & Natural Whitening Toothpaste landed on my desk, I was more than happy to give it a whirl. Firstly, this is a really great toothpaste! Whether you’re concerned about the environment or not, this toothpaste works really well. I’ve been using it day and night for over a month now and I definitely feel like my teeth look brighter after use it. It contains natural whitening properties that help to remove stains, yellowing and discoloration, which is perfect for a coffee and red wine lover like myself. The formula is free from toxic chemicals, including SLS, SLES, fluoride, paraben and bleaches. I’d recommend this toothpaste to absolutely anyone! It would be a great addition to any beauty routine.”
