ghd new styler update

If you are looking for a new pair of GHDs then check out these funky new stylers which are way more exciting than the normal ghd stylers! I am a huge ghd since I bought my first pair in 2002 and my life changed forever (no more frizzy hair!).

The limited edition BohoChic stylers gift set from ghd contains everything you need to create that perfect bohemian style. Including a heat resistant era inspired styler bag, two ghd sectioning clips, plus a get the look book and the ghd Gold Classic styler, the most luxurious styler to date.


I also love the new Pink Orchid styler, which features the ghd Gold Classic styler with a seductive twist ­ hot orchid pink styling plates. The contoured pink plates glide through hair effortlessly to give an ultra-shiny result. And a rounder barrel will let you get creative and achieve the style you desire, from feisty flicks to voluptuous curls. The best part is £10 from every sale (£129) is going to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.


I am also a big fan of the Cloud Nine wide straighteners since I received them for a review 2 years ago as you can change the heat setting, but find ghd’s better for curling and styling the hair more. So there is always space for both on my dressing table!


What do you think of the new straighteners? Would you choose them over the traditional styler?

Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint review

I have timed my review of Liz Earle’s Sheer Skin Tint to perfection, as their first step into colour launches tomorrow! 

  
I featured the news about the Sheer Skin Tint last month here and have been trying it out for the past month alongside my new fav Garnier BB Cream. Liz Earle has spent three years carefully creating a high performance make up must-have, which leaves skin looking dewy, even and radiant. When applying to my skin, however it feels quite heavy and the smell is quite overpowering. It also doesn’t rub into my skin as easily as the Garnier BB Cream, which is a real shame as I love silky moisturisers. On the plus side it is suitable for all skin types and contains mineral UV protection SPF15 which is a must-have for me. The coverage is very natural looking and excellent for a tinted moisturiser, however for me the texture is just too thick for my dry skin so I am not sure I would repurchase for £21.





Sheer Skin Tint is available in three shades: Bare 01 for fair skin tones, Beige 02 for medium skin tones and Beach 03 for medium to dark skin tones. Another nice touch from Liz Earle is a sample of all three shades will be sent with your order to help ensure you have chosen your perfect colour match. I recommend if you have oily skin and don’t like shiny moisturisers (like the Garnier BB Cream) as I think it will be perfect for you.


What do you think? Have you tried the Sheer Skin Tint and how does it compare to BB Creams?
