Tried And Tested – Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum Review

Product:

Avene – Soothing Hydrating Serum

 

Review:

Autumn is officially here and with it comes more time spent indoors, the central heating cranked up to the max (or is that just me?) and when we are outside the wind, rain and cold, bitterly bites at our sensitive skin. I’m not painting a pretty picture am I? Come back summer! All of this can lead to dehydrated, flaky skin and us reaching for a rich moisturiser that can simply be too much.

Having heard down the beauty grapevine that adding a simple serum step into your routine (after cleansing and before moisturising), can be the way forward to sooth and keep skin hydrated at this time of year, I decided to hunt down the perfect product.

I have long been a lover of Avene skincare; a French brand whose products are rich in Avene Thermal Spring Water that has been clinically proven to be naturally soothing, anti-irritating and anti-free radical (perfect for us sensitive souls) and so decided to give the Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum a try.

Tried And Tested – Batiste Dry Shampoo Review

Product:

Batiste Dry Shampoo

 

Review:

Okay, so we know that you have all heard of dry shampoo (unless you’ve been living in a cave – in which case you probably wouldn’t be caring too much for dry shampoo), but we wanted to share our all-time favourite with you. We have tried and tested almost every dry shampoo on the market and we always come back to Batiste.

Not only is Batiste a handy hair wash in a single spray (a lifesaver on our hangover days when managing to give our mane a full wash and blow dry is never an option) but it gives our hair the volume, body and oomph it has always been sadly lacking – so much so, that we now use our BFF Batiste every day, even when it’s freshly washed. A friend to our fringe, Batiste ensures we are sweeping and sultry rather than lank and lifeless.

Batiste Dry Shampoo is also your perfect destination wedding pal, keeping your locks looking luscious no matter how hot and sticky you feel in the sunshine.

We love the new fragranced varieties (fruity and cheeky ‘Cherry’ being top of our lust list), but we think the real hero in the collection comes with a tint of colour, ensuring there are no hints of giveaway grey with your spray.

Are you as big a dry shampoo fan as us, or have we tempted you to add a daily blast of Batiste to your bangs? If you need more ‘hello’ from your hair, you won’t regret it.

 

Batiste Dry Shampoo – 200ml – RRP £2.99

Tried And Tested – Dermalogica PreCleanse Review

Product:

Dermalogica – Precleanse

 

Review:

As I remove the cap and peel off the seal, I take a quick sniff; it smells divine, just like a lovely spa filled with the aroma of natural, warm-scented ingredients.

PreCleanse is a plant-based cleansing oil which aims to thoroughly dissolve make-up, dirt, debris and oil to leave you with fresh, clean skin. Then, when you move on to the second step of the two-step cleansing routine (using your regular cleanser), your cleanser can work harder and more effectively.
