ALL THE BEAUTY AND FASHION BUYS YOU’VE BEEN ADDING TO YOUR BASKETS
And just like that, August is almost upon us and the hottest of summer months is reflected in what you’ve been buying recently; a seasonal scent, floaty clothes and hair removal cream are all high on the list.
With masks a day-to-day essential you’ve also been stocking up on skincare to prevent the onset of maskne with pimples patches in your virtual basket.
Read on for what GTG readers have been loving this month; excellent taste, we must say.
THE INKEY LIST SHEA OIL NOURISHING TREATMENT, £9.99 AND CHEA SEED CURL DEFINING HAIR TREATMENT, £7.99
The Inkey List’s haircare collection came out of nowhere in June and it seems you were as intrigued by it as we were, with two products from the range in our most purchased list. The Shea Oil helps to hydrate and nourish hair, targeting brittle and damaged strands in particular while the Curl Defining treatment protects, strengthens and enhances all curl types to promote bounciness.
GARDEN OF WISDOM VITAMIN C SERUM 23% + FERULIC ACID, £10 FOR 30ML
In our article on the importance of vitamin C we talked about the power of combining it with ferulic acid to enhance to anti-oxidant powers and you obviously took the advice to heart, with this vitamin C serum flying off the virtual shelves at Victoria Health. It works hard to brighten and even out skin tone and is housed in an opaque bottle to stop the formula from destabilising.
TOM FORD ORCHID SOLEIL FRAGRANCE, £98.99
Tom Ford’s Black Orchid is a classic evening fragrance and this lighter take on it makes for a sensual yet breezy summer scent that’s every bit as alluring as the original. We originally gave it a shout out in our edit of the best floral fragrances where it’s in very good fragrance company.
WOOWOO HAIR REMOVAL CREAM, £6.75
With beauty salons closed for most of summer we had to take matters into our own hands when it came to hair removal and this cream was a winner out of the at-home hair removal we tried. It removes unwanted hair quickly and is especially good for the bikini line, banishing stray hairs in less than ten minutes with no ingrown hairs when they grow back.
Another hair removal solution we sang the praises of was Veet’s wax strips; while waxing at home is tricky these are far less fuss than a pot of wax that needs to be heated. Formulated with sweet almond oil to soothe the skin, you just warm them with your hands and you’re ready to go. More painful than the hair removal cream for sure, but worth a go for longer-lasting results.
SUPERIOR HAIR, £28.50 FOR 90-CAPSULES
If your locks are looking a little lacklustre they could be in need of a hair supplement; these capsules are one of the best sellers on Victoria Health; they encourage new hair growth, help stop hair loss, nourish the hair follicles all the while conditioning and strengthening existing hair.
