Well, I got the opportunity some weeks ago, and I was not disappointed. This Magnitone London Barefaced is all and more I thought it would be.

Magnitone London Barefaced

I love everything about this product but before I get into the PROS and CONS (if any), here is the product description.

Vibra-Sonic™ Daily Cleansing Brush deep-cleanses pores, tones and beautifully conditions your skin. For skin that deserves to go BareFaced! wherever, whenever.

 

I have used this product a few times now and it is just the best. My skin is glowing and I have Magnitone London to thank for that.

Here are my thoughts –

PROS
  1. I think it is a very pretty beauty gadget. I love how tiny and compact it is. It is easy to pop in a bag to go away with. The blue shade is also stunning. It is an exclusive colour available for Christmas only! It will be available on the website starting the 1st of October
  2. It is so easy to use. No dummy guide required with the Magnitone London Barefaced. It was up and running within minutes as it came charged, which was great!
  3. The Magnitone London Barefaced is a great multi-tasking gadget. It deep cleans, tones and massages the skin at the same time.
  4. This facial brush is completely waterproof, so it can be used in the shower.
  5. I used mine with my Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, and they worked brilliantly together.
  6. My skin feels amazing now. It feels soft and very smooth. There is also this new glow to it.

Good Night Sleep Essentials

I like my sleep. I need at least 8 hours of sound sleep to feel energised and ready to take on the world the next day. Good Night Essentials help me achieve a good night sleep. I have a sleep routine I stick to but I have been free styling of late, which has resulted to me not sleeping well, and feeling very grumpy in the morning. I had to do something about this, as it was beginning to affect the quality of my life.

Here are a few changes I have made, along with some new good night sleep essentials I got some days ago.

 

A Good Warm Shower/Bath

I make sure I take a nice warm shower a few hours before bed. If I have more time to play with, I run a bath and burn some candles, to help me relax. I have been burning my personalised Sweetness & Light Coconut Cream and Summer Breeze Soya Candles. They smell divine!

I have also added this Dead Skin Body Scrub Frankincense Oil to my weekly skincare routine. My skin feels amazing after using this body scrub. I like to use it once a week to get rid of rough/dry skin. It also leaves my skin feeling very clean, which I love. I sleep better when I feel clean, so using a body scrub every now and again is a good night sleep essential. The Dead Sea Body Scrub with Frankincense Oil is stocked in Boots Stores.

Here is a bit more info for the Dead Skin Body Scrub –

This chemical-free fusion of 100% Dead Sea salts and Frankincense oil, boosts circulation, smoothes rough, dry skin – leaving it silky and moisturized. Starting from the tips of your toes, scoop up a generous amount, massage all over, then simply rinse away.

 

Ingredients

Maris Sal, Boswellia Carterii Oil, (Olibanum).

 

Moisturise

After a good bath/shower, the next step is to moisturise. I have been using some new skincare products – Douvall’s Argan Multi Balm, Argan Active Protection Eye Serum, Argan Oil Moisturiser and Argan Bronzing Oil. These amazing skincare products were beautifully packaged in this Douvall’s pouch, which makes it super easy to pop in an overnight bag or handbag.

Product Review Image

 

I found these products very useful. The Argan Multi Balm is a great multitasking product to have around. I like the Argan Oil Moisturiser, it moisturised my skin beautifully, and the Argan Bronzing Oil added a little bit of glow to my skin. For my eyes, the Argan Active Protection Eye Serum felt great, and I noticed a difference in my eye area the morning after.

Here is a brief description of the product in the brand’s words –

 

Douvall’s Argan Bronzing Oil

This 100% natural and organic moisturising bronzing oil has the nourishing power of Argan Oil with added mineral make up giving you a bronzed shimmery healthy glow. It can be used on the face, body and hair. The Bronzing Oil is rich in vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids. It contains no parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals or toxins. This oil is also cruelty free, and housed in a recyclable dark glass bottle.

 

Douvall’s Argan Multi Balm

This balm provides intense instant hydration for dry skin. It can be used on rough patches, dry lips, calloused feet, cuticles and even sunburn. The nourishing and healing properties of Argan Oil are concentrated in a solid, leak-proof formula. Argan Multi Balm provides a protective barrier that locks in moisturise for soft supple skin all year round. This versatile balm can even be used with Douvall’s organic cotton muslin cloth as an effective, pH balancing cleanser and make up remover.

 

Douvall’s Argan Active Protection Eye Serum

This eye serum protects, repairs and lifts the delicate eye area. Using Argan Active Protection, the ultimate revitalising hydrating eye serum that penetrates deep into the dermis to Firm, nourish and plump the skin, with a complex of natural plant based actives, which improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles, with Aloe Vera for soothing.

 

Douvall’s Argan Oil Moisturiser

Douvall’s Argan Oil Moisturiser is fast absorbing, light weight, extremely high in vitamin E, essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which deeply hydrates, nourishes and repairs the skin. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This Argan Oil Moisturiser is light enough to use as a day and night cream, as well as a deeply nourishing, powerful and replenishing moisturiser for the body. It can also be applied on nail cuticles for stronger nails, and to hair as a hair treatment.

These Douvall’s products have been added to my daily skincare routine and my skin is thanking me for it. The Argan Multi Balm is my favourite product from the collection. I usually apply it on my lips, hands and feet before I go to bed. And I love the way my lips, hands and feet feel when I wake up.

 

 

A Cosy Sleepwear is a Good Night Sleep Essential

What I wear to sleep usually determines the kind of sleep I get. So I like to pay attention to my sleepwear. A  Cosy sleepwear is definitely a good night sleep essential.

 

Pyjamas Image

 

I recently received this Maya Woven Long Sleeve Pyjamas and Clara Woven Long Sleeve Tile Print Short Robe by Cyberjammies, and I love them. The oriental florals designed pyjamas is a beauty. I really like the colour. I also love the teal colour and design of the robe. The material is also very comfy!

The Pyjamas and Robe help to ensure I get a good night sleep. I like having robes to pop on or off depending on the weather and where I am. I can see myself wearing these pieces a lot.

No Caffeine After 8pm

I love my caffeinated drinks. If you know me well enough, you would know all about my love for cappuccino and coca-cola. I usually stick to taking a cup of cappuccino in the morning but I can easily be seen sipping a glass of coke as late as 10pm sometimes, which has started to affect the quality of my sleep.

My target now is to take not more than 2 glasses of coke a day, and not later than 8pm. Preferably a lot earlier but I am a realist, which means I am unable to build castles in the sky. So I will start with a target of 8pm and move it down to 7pm in a few weeks, depending on how I cope.

 

So there you have it. My good night sleep essentials and routine. All these items help me sleep better. What do you think of them? Did any catch your eye?

Protecting damaged hair: How to achieve perfect silky locks

Summer is the perfect time for free–flowing waves that behave themselves with little care. Plus, it’s usually far too hot to be using hairdryers and straighteners on your hair. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of products and styling tips that will help you achieve perfect silky locks while protecting damaged hair during the summer months.

Switch up how you wash your hair

Most shampoos contain sodium laurel sulphate which is essentially just a detergent, and not very good for our hair. Look for products that are recommended by hairdressers, and speak to your local salon if you’re not sure. Net-a-Porter recommends Marie-Stella-Maris’ ‘No.51’ shampoo that is 100% natural with Aloe Vera, Vitamin B and a mix of essential oils.

 

Ditch the heat

With warmer weather you don’t really need to dry your hair before leaving the house. If you stop yourself from styling using curlers, straighteners or just your hair dryer you will notice massive improvements in the quality of your hair. To achieve beautiful naturally dried locks, look for salt sprays, texturisers and curl creating products to give your hair some character. If you struggle with flat straight hair, plait your trusses in chunky sections while it’s still wet and undo them when it’s dry for easy beach girl waves.

 

Hide the damage

If your natural hair is too damaged to be left to its own devices, it’s time to call in for some back up. We’re talking adding more of what you’ve got, but less damaged. If you aren’t sure how to get instant hair extensions, it’s actually really easy and there’s no need to visit a salon. Simply find your hair colour and when you need a little bit extra of extra volume, clip in your hair extensions.

 

Protecting damaged hair

We slather sun cream all over our bodies but we’re less vigilant when it comes to protecting our hair from the bleaching rays of the sun. “If you don’t protect your hair, the sun can actually shift your hair colour and also change your hair texture by drying it out,” says hair colourist Daniel Sanchez speaking to ELLE magazine. To prevent bleaching and drying out, protect your hair with a sun spray. Clarins spray-on sun cream oil spray is for your hair and body, which is great because you don’t have to carry so many bottles around with you.

 

This summer, take these extra steps to protecting your hair and ensuring it looks great every day with little effort and fuss.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of the summer season.
