  1. Review of St Moriz Miracle Glow Face Tan Serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I think this might just have become one of my favourite ‘go to’ products. I have tried face tanning products before, but this by far the best I have tried so far. When using a tanning product on my face I want to end up with a healthy glow rather than a bronzed look (there are other products in the St Moriz range for this) .  Having said that daily use of the serum will help to build a more tanned look. As we move into spring/summer my skin is looking fairly sallow, not helped by my being more than a little unwell in recent months so I just wanted to look a little healthier! Nourishes the skin as...
  2. Over 50 and going grey? Natural hair tips and tricks.

    Comment
      It’s been said that with age comes wisdom. Another trait that seems to come along with getting older is grey hair. While it can be hard to avoid this reality, once you’ve learned about it, you’ll soon start to embrace this beautiful change.  Let’s dive into some frequently asked questions relating to grey hair to hopefully make these changes more understandable. What causes grey hair? Scientifically speaking, gray hair occurs from the lack of melanin. As your hair starts to lose this pigment, it continually grows lighter. This is why you generally go through various different shades such as gray, silver, and then white.  When your hair starts to turn different shades, this signifies that it’s slowly losing melanin...

  4. Review: Hair Boss The Double Mask for blondes

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   Most of the hair treatments I am offered are geared towards grey hair, but although I am now in my early 60s I still have no grey. My hair has become a little darker, but I am still very much a blonde! If you follow me on social media you will know that I have been through the wars health wise recently, and all the treatments I have had have really taken their toll on my hair. My hair has been far from the crowning glory it once was. When I was asked id  I would like to try some of the products formulated for blonde hair in Lisa Shepherd’s Hair Boss range I quickly said yes. The...
  5. Review: Color Wow Carb-Infused Dream Cocktail for thicker hair

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I am a fan of Color Wow products and use several of the products the range, I also had the pleasure of interviewing the inspirational  Color Wow founder Gail Federici several years ago  so feel I have a personal connection with the brand. Some of you may have read my previous post about my various health issues – these have had an impact on my hair. It’s no longer my crowning glory – it had become quite limp and thin looking. When I saw a video of Color Wow Dream Cocktail being used on Instagram I decided I just had to give it a go. There is a...

    Comment
    It’s never too late to change how we look. Many people believe that their appearance is unchangeable, and they may give up on the idea of looking better.

  8. How to prevent signs of ageing hair

    Comment
    Article by Steph Stevenson The words dull, dry, damaged, brittle, flat, coarse, thin can all be signs of aging hair, which let’s face it, are pretty inevitable with age. However, there are simple steps you can take to prevent the signs of ageing hair which can take years off your locks. So, let’s dive into some ways this can be achieved: Get the right cut! Be sure to speak to your stylist about which hairstyle they think will best suit you.

  9. Review: Dr Harris anti-wrinkle mask from Current Body

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I’m a bit of a gadget junkie and I when I was asked if I would like to try the Dr Harris anti-wrinkle mask I just had to say yes. The mask is designed to soften dynamic lines on the forehead. The mask isn’t a gadget in the normal sense –  you don’t plug it in and it has no batteries. At first glance it looks like an ordinary sleep mask – until  you see the silicone dots on the side that you place against your skin. The silicon dots are place at mechano receptor points which when pressure is applied encourage muscles to relax . To me, these points also look like the...
  10. Review of Living Proof Hair Products

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   I think I might just have found my new best friend when it comes to hair care. I was sent a selection of products to try from the Living Proof hair care range. Anyone who knows me will know that for me I am constantly battling frizz when it comes to my own hair. It is naturally curly and really does take on a life of its own. My favourite just has to be the Living Proof Instant de-frizzer. It’s a dry conditioning spray that you use between shampoos.  All I can say is that it makes an unbelievable difference to my hair.  It is not a dry shampoo – but really is a product that tames the frizz. Despite my best efforts my hair tends to...
