Tweezerman for Benefit

Tweezers are one of life's little essentials that I never gave much thought to. Thinking that a tweezer is a tweezer and price doesn't effect their functioning, I've bought many a cheap pair in the past but then found them to be duds. I'd often heard the name Tweezerman pop up in reference to good quality tweezers but never got round to buying a pair myself. So when I'd heard Benefit and Tweezerman had teamed up, I thought it would be a good time to try them out for myself.

Described as the ultimate precision tweezer for those hard-to-reach hairs, the stainless steel tips are hand-filed and perfectly aligned for expert results. These are sharper than any other tweezers I've tried and grasp even the smallest of hairs. They make neatening up the brows even more quick and easy so it's no longer a chore. I also love the design of these, it's good to have a jazzy pair of tweezers!

Benefit Tweezerman are priced at £22.50 for the pointed slant tweezers and £19.50 for the slanted tweezers. Both are available online or at your local Benefit counter.

Have you tried Tweezerman tweezers?

Holiday Preparation with Philips Satin Perfect

I'll be heading off to Turkey in a couple of weeks so my holiday preparation has begun! One of the first things to tackle is hair removal. Here's the perfect solution to leave your skin smooth and silky before you jet off to sunnier climates...

Philips Satin Perfect
The new Philips Satin Perfect has an extra-wide head which enables it to removes more hair in one stroke, giving you long-lasting smoothness, faster. Its high performance discs are made of textured ceramic material, which gently grip and remove even finest hairs.

It's super quick to use and gives silky smooth legs for weeks. A great product for all the busy ladies out there who want fast, long lasting results.

Mark Hill Holiday Hair

I'll be heading off to Turkey for a fortnight soon and with temperatures reaching over 35'C at this time of year, I'll need some products to protect my hair from the sun. Mark Hill's Holiday Hair is a collection of products specially designed for this purpose. At just £3.42 per product, these are great to stock up on before you head away. I love the bright Sex on the Beach cocktail coloured packaging, very summery! Here's what I'll be taking with me...

Stay Straight Polish

For use on damp or dry hair, this is an ultra-light straightening polish that smoothes away holiday frizz, keeps hair styled for longer and adding beachy texture and definition.

Sun Protection Spray SPF6

Containing SPF 6 with UV protectors, this defends the hair and scalp from the suns harmful rays, so I'll be applying this to my hair regularly throughout the day. It also helps replenish moisture and shine to sun-stressed hair. A beach bag essential!

Beach to Bar Dry Shampoo

With UV filters to protect from damage and Vitamin E to strengthen, this dry shampoo instantly refreshes and revives your hair. Natural extracts of Boswellia Serrata help to cleanse the hair and scalp by removing impurities such as salt, sand or chlorine without leaving a white residue. This will be a great little time saver whilst on holiday.

Also available from the Mark Hill Holiday Hair collection is Stay Straight Anti-Humidity Spray, Suncare Shamppo, Aftersun Conditioner and Sun Protection Serum.
