Beauty Picks for September:
COLOR WOW is a new brand catering to the needs of people with colour treated hair. Developed by Gail Federici and John Frieda, products range from Color Security Shampoo to Pop & Lock, but the most impressive is this Root Cover Up – an innovative retouch tool that covers up grey and dark regrowth.
Available in four shades including blonde, light brown, medium brown and dark brown; Root Cover Up’s pigments adhere to hair without being sticky or oily and without dulling. It contains a variety of pigments and reflective properties to ensure shades look natural and easily match, and is also water-resistant, lasts from shampoo to shampoo and extends the time between colouring and highlighting.
Price: £28.50, available at QVC, victoriahealth.com and colorwowhair.com.
New Sheer Cover Studio lengthening mascara and lash extending fibres:
Sheer Cover have recently launched a number of new beauty products but one that stood out for me is this lengthening mascara and lash extending fibres duo which is a god send for people who find eyelash extensions a pain. The lengthening mascara and lash extending fibres will give you the same long voluminous lashes that extensions give you only without the gluing and possible eye poking.
These two products have to be used together and contain panthenol and vitamin E which moisturises, hydrates and strengthens lashes.
Application is simple, apply a single coat of mascara, add the fibres over the wet mascara so they stick and then cover the fibres with another coat of mascara for long and gorgeous eyelashes. sheercover.co.uk.
Wen Cleansing Conditioner:
Not only do I love this 5 in 1 cleanser because it is sulphate free but also because it takes the hassle out of washing hair and streamlines the process. It’s a cleanser and conditioner which cleans hair without lathering while moisturising, conditioning and detangling all at once. It saves money because there’s no need to buy other products. £29.99, wenhaircare.co.uk.
Proactiv Smoothing Primer:
A new addition to the Proactiv family, this primer is light weight, reduces the appearance of fine lines, enlarged pores and blemishes while keeping your make up in place for longer.
This smoothing primer is quite the multi-tasker as it acts as a powder to absorb excess oil on the skin, preventing blocked pores and the blemishes. £15, www.proactiv.co.uk
