Redken Soft But Sassy Christmas Gift Set

Give the gift of gorgeous, glossy hair this Christmas with Redken’s range of fab haircare gift sets.
Whether you’re looking to keep your locks vibrant and fresh or rejuvenate sensitive, dry hair, inject some much needed moisture or create ultimate softness Redken have a collection to grant all your hair wishes.

If like me you suffer with dry, brittle hair then I can highly recommend trying their Soft But Sassy Christmas Collection (£30).

Available in Redken salons nationwide now, the Soft But Sassy collection comprises of their all soft Shampoo, all soft conditioner and  One United all-in-one multi benefit hair treatment.

Perfect for long hair that suffers with breakages and damage along the length of the hair, the all soft duo are infused with argan oil to provide 15 times more conditioning power, in turn, strengthening the hair’s core.

It features a keratine-enriched complex to replenish your hair while adding intense softness and contains their new RCT protein complex in which three proteins treat the hair at the root, core and tip.

The shampoo itself smells divine. Fruity, fresh and with a distinct note or Argan Oil it lathers beautifully creating a soft, frothy foam that gently cleanses your hair without stripping it of moisture.

The conditioner features the same soft, additive scent and despite its rich texture is surprisingly lightweight. 

Applied to damp hair I left it to work its magic for several minutes before rinsing off to reveal gorgeously soft, smooth hair that pretty much glided through my hairbrush- and this is before it had even been dried!

The One United leave in hair treatment actually boasts 25 different caring benefits, many of which compliment the all soft shampoo and conditioner.

This lightweight spray provides conditioning, manageability and protection in one. 

It conditions, nourishes, reduces dryness, detangles, prevents breakage from brushing, prevents heat damage & split ends, controls frizz and adds shine making hair feel silky, soft and thoroughly nourished from the inside out. 

It’s easy to see why it’s their hero product and the perfect companion to the all soft duo.

Redken’s Soft But Sassy set is available now along with their other gift sets in Redken salons nationwide.

REN Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm

The Evercalm rage by REN is a collection of products created specifically for sensitive and sensitised skin and comprises of a selection of products to help calm and soothe irritated skin.

I’ve suffered with sensitive skin for as long as I can remember, partly due to a variety of elements that I’ve recently discovered that I’m allergic to and this can make finding skincare products that my skin agrees with a nightmare.

 I’ve always loved REN’s Evercalm range of products as they have never caused my skin to react adversely so I was very excited when I saw that they had launched a new product in that line.

The new Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm (£40) is a decadent night time treatment which targets sensitivity, dryness and inflammation, while boosting and safeguarding your skin’s natural regeneration.

This unique, rich balm-to-oil feeds your skin with oils of Olive, Almond, Borage and Linseed which have been activated with digestive enzymes to allow them to be more easily absorbed into your skin.

Beta-Glucans (a key ingredient within the award-winning Evercalm range) offer their anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and ease irritation while Jojoba and Sunflower Oil complex intensely moisturise and help to protect your skin.

Its sounds impressive because it is!

The balm itself possesses no fragrance at all and is a wonderful texture!

The jelly-esq balm melts almost instantly upon touch, transforming into a feather-light oil which when applied to dry skin is absorbed incredibly quickly leaving behind no residue.

I was very surprised to find that my skin felt neither oily nor greasy after application, in fact there was no evidence that I’d applied an oil to my face at all other than the wonderfully soft and nourished way it felt.

Dry, irritated patches of skin instantly felt calmer and soothed and my entire face felt smooth, hydrated and pampered- and that was only with a tiny amount of product.

I love how moisturised my skin felt without feeling clogged or heavy and how refreshed and healthy it looked in the morning.

The new REN Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm gets a big thumbs up from me and lucky for you its available now.

Latest In Beauty Advent Calendar 2018

I know I know its October, BUT in the land of Beauty Advent Calendars you need to be making choices and purchases NOW to ensure you get your hands on the calendar you want before they sell out. 

And they always do sell out.

The first calendar in my series of review is the Latest In Beauty Advent Calendar (£60) which never fails to impress me!

Its wide range of products and brands is impressive and equalled only by the its really reasonable price point.

The contents of the calendar are worth over £255 yet this bad boy will set you back just £60.

This year the calendar features a truly enchanting design which has been inspired by a magical Winter night sky, captivating the fairytale of Christmas with rich shades of blue and alluring touches of gold. 

Elegantly tied with a luxurious satin, gold bow you’ll find  some seriously luxurious brands included within this calendar.

Think Molton Brown, The White Company and Oskia to name but a few and the products range from everything from skincare to cosmetics, haircare to self tanning and many of the products are actually full sized too!

I love a surprise so for that reason I deliberately haven’t photographed every item within the calendar, rather, I’ve given you a sneak peak at a few of the goodies you’ll find inside.

I have included a full list of the contents at the end of this post but figured that for those of us that enjoy the wondering what you’ll receive each day I wouldn’t spoil it for you.

For those of you who can’t wait to see what’s in it then feel free to scroll away!

Now, one of the benefits of getting in early with your calendar purchase is that there can be some unexpected perks to being prompt!

For example, the first 500 people to purchase the You Beauty calendar will receive a free £15 Spa Breaks voucher (while stocks last).

How fab is that!

What an awesome additional treat, as if you weren’t getting enough already!

So, head HERE  to get your hands on what could be the best beauty advent calendar of the year.
