The Beauty Edit: June

Interchangeable weather means I’ve got these in heavy rotation this month:


Nad’s Facial Wand Eyebrow Shaper – £10.20
I admit I was nervous to try this at-home eyebrow waxing kit as the last time I tried to do my eyebrows myself I looked constantly surprised. I recommend you get your brown expertly waxed/plucked/threaded first and then use the Nads’s Facial Wand Shaper for maintenance only. My brows weren’t too straggly so it was pretty easy to apply the wax with the gel and use the strips in the box to tidy them up. No one has said I look different so I know I can’t have done too bad a job.

Kiko Eyebrow Styling Kit – £13.90
Once your brows are the right shape, enhance them with this styling kit. It contains pigmented eyebrow wax to fix, and two complementary coloured powders to shape and fill brows. The kit also includes grooming tools to spruce and style: mini tweezers, slanted brush and a mini wand. It is available in two colour shades: one for chestnut browns and black haired ladies and one for reds and blondes.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash – £5
If you grew up in the 90s chances are you had something from The Body Shop Tea Tree range as your hormones played havoc with your skin. Personally, I had the concentrated tea tree oil. This new creamy wash contains fair trade marula and soya oil, skin-clearing and anti-bacterial tea tree oil and a hit of menthol to help give the wash its cool sensation and fresh fragrance. Perfect for good and bad skin days. To prevent the bad ones from ever happening again!

L’Oreal Confetti Nail Polish – £4.99
Plain nails seem to be a thing of the past and make up giant L’Oreal have taken their time to get on the textured bandwagon. Their confetti top coat is designed to be worn over your favourite nail colour to give that speckled look to your existing polish. At £4.99 it’s cheaper than a lot of the other brands out there and works just as well.

ESPA Lifestage Net8 Serum – £100
It’s not cheap but this serum has been rigorously tested under independent clinical trial conditions to ensure efficacy across a broad spectrum of the most visible signs of ageing. Especially formulated for those aged 45 and over, it contains Natural Encapsulation Technology – an innovative and intelligent delivery system that utilises a natural protective outer shell to hold a multitude of microspheres – each infused with a unique blend of individual actives in their purest most concentrated form. I’m not 45 yet but my frown lines that lead from nose to mouth aren’t going to disappear on their own!
