Tresemme Treatment 7 Day Smooth

The Tresemme 7 day smooth treatment never really appealed to me as I didn’t think that it would do much for my fine hair; however after receiving a sample with a Miss Selfridge order I decided to give it a go.

All you do is apply 8-10 pumps onto towel dried hair, avoiding the scalp, and blow dry. Once your hair is completely dry, straighten it in small sections repeating around 3-5 times on each section. This does make your hair extremely soft and manageable, however it was extremely time consuming to go through all of my long hair. For this reason I don’t think that I would repurchase the treatment as it just isn’t worth it for me as my hair is quite straight anyway, although I can definitely see how it would work brilliantly on coarser, curly hair.

Hair Of The Day

I’ve been wearing this fishtail braid a lot recently as it’s extremely convenient when your in a rush and can be done on damp hair. This is great as it means no heat which is good for your hair, and no fussing with the hairdryer in the morning. It also gives really pretty waves when you take it out which is a bonus!

It does look quite complicated but I promise you it’s not, just follow a tutorial on Youtube and once you get the hang of it you’ll be able to do it in a matter of minutes.

#1 – Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless

This has to be the best mascara I’ve ever used, it makes your lashes extremely long and thick and doesn’t clump what so ever. It’s also great for achieving any look, from natural to an almost false effect depending on the amount you apply and holds up amazing throughout the day – no signs smudging or flaking at all!

Retails at around £7.99

#2 – Maybelline The Falsies

This mascara is great for giving extremely thick looking lashes as its specially designed curved brush coats every lash giving a fuller, more dramatic look.

Retails at around £7.99

#3 – 17 Blow Out Mascara

Retails at around £4.00

#4 – Avon Super Extend Mascara

This mascara is amazing for a more natural look as it gives lashes length but not much volume. Perfect for daily wear and holds a curl really well.

Retails at around £10

#5 – Soap And Glory Thick&Fast

The huge brush on this mascara helps to thicken the lashes whilst giving a lot of volume and curl. My only issue is that it works amazing for the first few weeks but seems to dry up quickly.

Retails at around £10

Review: The Body Shop Lip And Cheek Stain

I got this product out of a magazine and didn’t really expect much of it, however after trying it out I realised just how great it is. It looks extremely bright when first applied to the lips, but after blotting it looks amazing! It gives a subtle red tint of colour which lasts for hours, and looks great with lip gloss on top too.

It also looks gorgeous when used on the apples of your cheeks as it gives the skin a rosy glow whilst still looking extremely natural. I would recommend using a small amount first then building upon it to get the desired look.

Overall, this lip and cheek stain is brilliant if you’re like me and hate having to re-apply your make up through the day.

Review: Remington Pearl Wand

I purchased Remington’s Pearl wand a few months ago after hearing fantastic reviews on it, however I was slightly sceptical whether it was actually going to work. I’d used a large variety of curling products before but my hair never seemed to hold a curl, it would just drop into a flat mess after a few hours no matter how much hairspray I used.


This wand is absolutely brilliant! It turns my naturally pin-straight hair into fantastic voluminous curls and holds them there for days. It’s also extremely quick to do, I usually only hold each section of hair around the wand for around 5-10 seconds. The appliance comes with a heat proof pouch and glove which I would advise you to use as the barrel gets extremely hot!


Overall it is an absolutely amazing curling wand and I would recommend it to anyone as the barrel makes it easy to create any type of curl, from tight ringlets to loose waves which stay in without the use of hairspray!

Retails at around: £19-20
