Backcombing Giving You a Headache? I Present the Denman Teasing Comb :)

teasing comb

 

What is it?

A comb specifically for ‘teasing’ the hair (generally at the roots) to add volume.

 

The Review

What is not to like? If you have ever tried to tease your hair with anything but a teasing comb, you will know that it hurts, it’s messy and generally really not a very good idea …

This comb, however, allows you to tease gently whilst achieving lots of volume (depending on how much you tease your hair of course). You can achieve varying levels of volume with ease and it’s gentler on your head and hair than trying to use a normal comb.

The handle is a nice width and the pointed end allow your to section your hair in a straight line simply by wiggling the pointed end in the direction you want to part it. Easy peasy! No pain, no tugging and these combs are under £5.

I don’t tease my hair very often but this is a joy to use if I’m having a flat day or want a a bigger up do.

Sleek Blush By3 Palette – Initial thoughts

 

 

sleekblushby3

 

 

What is it?


A Sleek blusher palette containing 3 shades of blusher – 2 matte shades and one shimmery shade. The one I have is shown here and is the orange/peach/coral palette.

 

Initial thoughts:

These palettes come in a few different colour ways and contain 3 highly pigmented blusher colours all in a sleek black palette ideal for travelling.

These are highly pigmented, smooth, blendable and great value for money. In the palette I bought, there are two matte shades – a bright orange and a bright coral – and a shimmery peach too. I can’t say I know about the other colour ways as I didn’t look at them properly in the shop but I believe that there’s a pink toned palette and also a brown/bronze coloured one. I would assume the ratio of matte to shimmery shades would be the same for the other palette but perhaps not. If you have any of the others then feel free to comment below and let us all know!

 

Worth the money?

As with all the Sleek make up I own, I was thoroughly impressed. The matte shades are pigmented and smooth, these colours aren’t chalky and it’s great to have a shimmery shade and matte shades all in one palette. The packaging is great for travelling, sturdy and yet not to bulky – sleek, slim and simple with the added bonus of a large mirror.

These palettes cost £9.99 here in the UK and are available from the Sleek website or Superdrug.

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray

 

What is it?

A heat protection spray infused with keratin that claims to protect from heat styling, make hair sleeker, shinier and more manageable without weighing down the hair.

 

The Review

To be completely honest, I’m not going to string this out as there’s not much to say really! This does exactly what it says it does on the bottle.

The spray bottle is lovely and this stuff comes out in a beautiful fine mist. It smells lovely, doesn’t weigh my hair down, doesn’t leave it sticky in any way and makes my hair feel super soft.

A beautiful smooth and shiny finish even if only used when blow drying – perfect!

 

Worth the Money?

This can be purchased from Boots or Superdrug or even larger chain supermarkets (as usual) for the very reasonable price of £5.99. I love this and will be repurchasing it full price, HOWEVER, Superdrug has it for only £2.95 at the moment so I suggest you all go and grab some while it lasts! Even at full price though, this product is fantastic.

This product is part of a range so if you fancy giving the treatment mask or shampoo or conditioner a go then leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts! I have been using the shampoo as well and I really like it 🙂

Revlon Liquid Quick Dry

 

 

What is it?

A liquid, brush on oil that dries wet nails in less than a couple of minutes.

 

The Review

This product is a life saver for me, I like to paint my nails but I’m also very impatient when it comes to letting them dry for long enough. It’s easy to use and absolutely amazing!

Just paint your nails as usual and apply your top coat, allow this dry for about 30secs just so it’s not super wet and lightly brush on the Liquid Quick Dry.

This is a a runny liquid as it’s a fairly thin oil so you do not need to really push the brush as you brush on the product. I find that roughly three, quick, light strokes coats the nail and after about 90secs it’s completely dry and has no effect on the polish’s ‘natural’ finish.

 

Worth the Money?

A nail technician at a photoshoot the other week used it on me so of course, if it’s good enough for a pro then this stuff definitely is worth the money!

It works really well and is hardly an investment buy at £6.49 – compared to some of the other ones out there from brands such as OPI it’s an absolute bargain.

This product is widely available on the highstreet from places such as Boots and Superdrug and most larger chain supermarket with a make up section:
