Today I have looked at ways to sort out your smile and our Beauty Editor has put hairdryers to the test…
Today we look at ways to help you beat the blues and our Beauty Editor puts mattifying primers to the test . . .
TOOTHBRUSH – This new electric toothbrush from Brushd comes with sonic technology for a deep and gentle clean.
It’s beautiful to look at and I love the fact that it has wireless charging, a 30-day battery life and each brush comes with a pre-paid compostable pouch so that the used brush heads can be returned to the company for recycling. It made my teeth feel squeaky clean.
The only down side is that the cylinder tube doesn’t have any grips, so if you use after slathering moisturiser on your face it’s a bit slippery!
TOOTHPASTE – Whites Beaconsfield have a huge range of dentistry goodies from a brilliant kids’ toothbrush to whitening strips.
I tried their Whites Teeth Whitening Toothpaste and was most surprised about the taste; strawberry, but not sickly or sweet and oddly works well with the minty taste.
My teeth are noticeably whiter and I think a bit brighter. I have bought another tube!
£12.99 for 75ml tube. https://whitesbeaconsfield.co.uk/
TABLETS– The new whitening, fluoride-free toothpaste tablets from Hello are little round chalky-looking tablets and come in a plastic-free tin.
They are designed to be the perfect size to fit on a toothbrush so there is no waste. It takes a while for them to turn into paste.
Formulated with natural peppermint, tea tree oil, and coconut oil.
I preferred to use them on the go and just chewed them – which they’re not really designed for but a great way to freshen up!
£7.99 for 60 tablets. Hello-Products.co.uk.
Cloud Nine Airshot Pro, cloudninehair.com, £199: This is probably the prettiest hairdryer I’ve seen – white and slim with metallic pink trims and two nozzles for sleeker styling.
It’s lightweight and comes in a white faux leather styling case, and promises to cut drying time by up to half.
It has two temperature settings and three power levels and uses a ceramic, mineral-infused motor element to lock in moisture and reduce flyaways.
As a pricey investment, it worked really well on thinner hair but struggled with a friend’s thicker do.
GHD Helios, from £118 on sale (£179 otherwise), ghdhair.com: Better known for their iconic hair straighteners, this professional hair dryer from GHD is absolutely fantastic.
It has a powerful 2,200 watt motor and circulates air quickly, speeding up styling significantly.
It’s well designed too – not too heavy and has a long cable.
It has two temperature settings and power controls but its best feature is the ionic technology which leaves hair extremely smooth and shiny.
Great for thick hair. My favourite.
Remington Keratin Protect, £45.30, www.amazon.co.uk: This great value dryer from Remington is designed to reduce frizz.
It has a ceramic-coated grille and is infused with almond oil and keratin to protect from damage and give a healthier looking blow dry.
It is also pretty powerful at 2,200 watts with three temperature settings, two power controls and a cool air shot button.
It comes with a diffuser for curly hair, and two concentrator nozzles. It is great value for money for thin hair - performs just as well as Cloud Nine.
