Shoosh or Shine? 

One of the things we love most about our growing silver community is that no two heads of hair are the same. Some of us have an icy halo, others have a chic smattering of salt & pepper, but every single grey is different. For some of us our white hair is finer and thinner and for others it’s more a question of taming the wild grey strands with a mind of their own.  That’s why we’re aware that not everyone needs the same products to care for their hair. 

Grey hair can have a tendency to be coarse and wiry and although everyday care may be similar from person to person, what you need depends on the thickness and length of our hair, our lifestyle and many other factors. I don’t use a conditioner every time I wash because my hair doesn’t need it. I have a ‘messy layered’  crop and for the kind of volume and movement I want in my hair, our Shooshing Creme does the trick. If it feels a touch dry I use our Luminous Conditioner from mid hair to ends as its lustrous formula is great for strengthening and gives your silver added shine.   

Our advice is to not take blanket advice on your hair!  If you don’t need to condition every time, then don’t. If your hair works better a couple of days after a wash, then go with that. A good hair care regime is one that’s flexible and works for you and your hair.  A touch of Lifeshine Oil to smooth stray strands may be all the added moisture you need. A soak in the bath with our 3 minute Intense Lustre Mask may be perfect after a week of swimming in the pool or walking the dog in all weathers.  It’s up to you.

We only have 6 products in our range because we don’t think you need dozens.  We don’t make hairspray because I’m not prepared to ditch my favourite Elnett and I won’t create a product just for the sake of it.  I’m a Glorious Shampoo and Shooshing Creme woman with an occasional dabble in our other products depending on what I’m doing. Go your own way. “

The Festive Season Glow

The festive season is fast approaching, and in fact, many Christmas parties are already in full swing so if you haven’t yet turned your attention to your tanning, now is your chance. We’ve called on tanning experts Bellamianta to share their professional tips for party perfect skin, in just 4 steps. 

P.S You can get and additional 10% off all our Sun and Tan shop (no minimum spend!) Use Code: TANME until Midnight Friday 25/10/19! ✨


There’s no doubt about it; the perfect party season accessory is always a gorgeous, golden glow. Christmas is all about sparkle, shimmer and shine so it’s time to up the ante when it comes to a skin-loving glow. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’ve got a couple of low-key events in the diary or it’s packed full of glitz and glam extravaganzas, ensure your tan is always on point with these simple, skin perfecting tips. ‘Tis the season to glow, after all.


Step 1: Prep is Key

While it can be easy to reach for your tan straight away, the key to a flawless finish is all about that base. To ensure your skin is in prime condition for tanning, exfoliate using a gentle scrub (such as our Triple Action Glycolic Body Scrub) and mitt thoroughly, 24-hours prior to tanning. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the skin’s outermost layer to help ensure even coverage on application. After exfoliating, moisturise your skin.


Step 2: Apply your tan

If you can, shower 30-minutes before application. This will enable your skin to return to its natural PH balance and allow time for your pores to close. Do not apply body lotion or deodorant before tanning. Make sure your underarms are deodorant free and avoid using any oil based products, as they can leave traces on the skin that can cause streaking.

For a long-lasting glow, our Rapid Self-Tanning Tinted Mousse is a winner, for good reason. The beauty of this tan, is that you are in control of its colour. Simply leave on for 2-hours for a light tan, wash off after 3-hours for a medium glow or for the darkest results, leave on for 6 or more hours. The mousse formula is super easy to use (even for tanning newbies), gliding over the skin and blending perfectly for a fabulous finish.


Step 3: Elevate your look

The Christmas party season definitely calls for next level tanning. Our Flawless Filter Body Make-Up is perfect for those festive nights out. A wash-off body and face makeup, it effortlessly blurs imperfections, while the special tinted formula is designed to bronze and gloss your skin instantly. It gives a HD finish that lasts all day long and looks so flawless that #nofilter is required on those festive photos.

A firm favourite with beauty bloggers and make-up artists, our Skin Perfecting Illuminating Bronzing Powder is unlike anything you have tried before. Just at the name suggests, this Bronzing Power works to perfect your skin while illuminating it for a glow that keeps on giving. The golden bronzing power cleverly reflects light, while offering subtle coverage, to give your skin a gorgeous, natural golden glow. Lightweight, ultra-fine pigments enhance the skin’s natural undertones for a truly unique skin perfecting finish. Plus, it’s suitable for use on both the face and body, making this one of the most versatile beauty products you could ever own!

 


Step 4: Keep the glow alive

Now that you’ve tanned you’ll want to keep the glow alive. Using our Self Tanning Gradual Moisturiser will not only keep your skin super hydrated, but it will deepen your tan and extend its duration too so when those last-minute Christmas catch-ups with friends roll around, you’ll definitely be ready. Plus, like all our Bellamianta products, it is packed full of skin-loving, organic ingredients, keeping it super soft and in tip-top condition.


This festive season, enjoy the greatest gift of all – a gorgeous, golden glow.

Fight The Freeze

The season for weddings, BBQs and outdoor functions may be over, but that doesn’t mean the social butterfly gets to rest its wings. If anything, with the turn in season we have to up our beauty game. It isn’t easy to look glam at those festive parties and candle-lit birthday celebrations when you’ve been wrestling your umbrella and dodging the downpours. 

Well, in true allbeauty style, we’re here to make your life easy. Today we’ll be highlighting a few key products that will prove to be your greatest allies during the upcoming party season. So, without further ado…

Best Waterproof Makeup Products for Winter

Between the rain, hail, sleet and snow, winter can quickly turn you from a Glamazon into a drowned raccoon. If you want to look your best whatever the weather, you need to have the right tools on hand, but which waterproof products should be a must in your beauty kit? 

Eyes

  • Waterproof mascara, like the High Impact Waterproof Mascara from Clinique, is an absolute beauty essential for winter, ensuring that those lashes stay where they’re meant to throughout the day. But waterproof eye makeup doesn’t stop at just mascara!
  • For those evenings when you want a bold look, why not try magnetic lashes? Unlike traditional fake lashes which rely on glue, these Eylure Baroque corner lashes simply attach to lids using a magnetic applicator which comes included. No risk of your lashes sliding down your face with these!
  • To finish off the look, the Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil is ideal for creating a smoky eye on a winter’s night out, this is one eye liner that really stands it’s ground! And if you want to avoid wayward brows, you won’t find better than Wunderbrow 1-Step Brow Gel by Wunder2.

Face

It’s all very well having perfect eye makeup, but that’s no help if your foundation is pooling around your collar.

  • With Estee Lauder’s Double Wear range, you can be confident that whatever winter throws at you, your face can handle it. With over 20 shades of foundation and even water-proof concealers in the range, these are the winter must-haves.
  • For a touch of colour, you can’t go wrong with Dior Addict Lip Tattoo, which provides lasting coverage unlike any other – up to 10 hours in fact. And for continuing the rosy cheeked look indoors and out, award-winning Benefit Benetint is a fantastic stain that can be used on both cheeks and lips.
  • Lastly, finish your makeup with a light spray of Glamglow Glowsetter. Not only will it keep your face in place, but as it’s infused with caffeine and tea extracts it will hydrate and invigorate your skin too. Result!

Best Windproof Hair Products for Winter

There’s a time and a place for that windswept look, and as luck would have it, it is usually neither here nor now. Whether you have fine hair which falls flat at the first sign of a breeze, or curly hair which gets a little over-excited with humidity, there’s a product to help balance your hair this winter. 

  • Caught out by a sudden shower? Keep Frizz Dismiss by Redken in your office drawer to tame your hair, whatever the weather. This serum can be used on dry or wet hair and instantly reduces frizz.
  • For fine, flat hair, Kerastase Bouffant Styling Mousse is a godsend, amping up the volume from roots to tips. With built in heat protection and good hold, this is a must for using in conjunction with your curling tongs or rollers.
  • Curly ladies, we got you. You’ve got naturally voluminous hair, but, like cashmere, you’ve got to protect those delicate locks from the elements. Joico Humidity Blocker Hairspray does just that, creating a light protective barrier around each strand which blocks humidity and keeps your curls looking their best.


Which of these products will you be incorporating into your winter beauty regime this year? We’d love to hear what’s working for you.

Secret Santa Saviours

Deck the halls, ring the bells, Christmas is coming! 

It really is the “most wonderful time of the year” until, that is, you open your email to find out that the office is doing a Secret Santa

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no grinch, but those two words fill me with dread and I know I’m not the only one…

#1 First of all, there’s nothing secret about it, by the time the torn wrapping paper has been bundled into the bin, everyone knows who got whom what. 

#2 Second, you never get the person you actually know well and want to buy a gift for. You’re inevitably paired with Simon from Accounts or Angry Helen from HR; or worse still, someone in management.

#3 Finally, the pressure to get a thoughtful, inexpensive gift without inversely overthinking it or spending too little, is an extra burden that no one needs this close to Christmas. 

Yet, this year, thousands of people around the country will be faced with this exact predicament. Well allbeauty readers, we’re here for you. To take the stress out of Secret Santa shopping we’ve got an easy-to-use solution that’s right at your fingertips.


The allbeauty “Secret Santa Saviour Selector”

Too much? The name may be a work in progress, but this is a tool that will change your life for the better when it comes to shopping for those hard-to-buy-for colleagues, friends or family. 

Our search function not only allows you to filter products by category but by gender and budget too. So, whether it’s a £10 bath oil for Aunt Pam or a £15 organic skin cream for your vegan boss, we’ve got you covered. 

The 5 Types of Secret Santa Recipient (and What to Get Them)

We know that finding the perfect gift involves knowing where to start. So, to make your Christmas shopping as stress-free as possible, the allbeauty team have got together to highlight the best categories for some of the most common Secret Santa recipients.

1. THE HARD TO PLEASE

Let’s face it, statistics aside, this is the person you’re most likely to draw out of the hat. That one person in the office who can’t be pleased, who complains about the AC temperature year-round and who won’t hide their feelings when they pull back the wrapping.

For the Office Snob, we suggest going for a few small items instead of one big one. This will spread the chances of getting something they’re happy with without you being out of pocket. Miniature perfume or makeup selection boxes are a great option. Browse now.

2. THE JOKER 

A great person to be paired with, the office Joker loves to have a laugh and appreciated a good prop. Think of the least likely thing that The Joker needs, and get that. 

Why not go for hair spray for the Bald Joker, lip plumping gloss for the Casual Joker, or a calming candle for the Bouncing Off The Walls Joker. Get creative! Browse now.

3. THE QUIET ONE

If you’ve been paired with someone you know nothing about, go for a safe gift that can’t possibly be misinterpreted. That isn’t to say you need to be boring though. Hand creams and scented soaps may be tried and true gifts, but why not opt for something a little more thoughtful? 

Home fragrances are a wonderful gift to receive and as well as being practical and long-lasting. Browse now.

4. THE MAT LEAVE RETURNER

It can be awkward being paired with someone who has recently returned from maternity leave – they’ve served their time in the office, but you might never have worked alongside them before or know their interests.

The perfect gift for a new mum? Sleep. If you can’t offer your services as a night nurse, get the next best thing: our range of Wellbeing Products for Sleep make an ideal gift for new mothers. Browse now.

5. THE ANNUAL LEAVE AFICIONADO

We’ve all got that one colleague who seems to be on holiday as regularly as they’re in the office. How they manage to make their annual leave go so far is anyone’s guess, but one thing we do know is what to get them for Christmas.

There are an amazing variety of travel-size products available at allbeauty, all of which will be a welcome addition on your colleague’s next adventure. Browse now.


Congratulations! You’ve got everything you need to wow the office with your Secret Santa contribution. So, what are you waiting for? Get shopping!

Hangover Hydration Help

Those boozy nights out wreak havoc on our skin, in more ways than one. If you want your skin to be fighting fit this party season, allbeauty are on hand to help. We’ve created a handy six step process for reversing the effects of the night before; so those late nights don’t need to catch up with you.

 


Step 1 – Wipe the slate clean.

After you’ve woken up and checked your text messages through bleary eyes, the most important thing you can do is clean your face. If you managed to reach for the make up wipes last night, congratulations are in order, but it’s still worth making sure that you refresh your skin and start the day right. 

Foundation and sweat are terrible for clogging pores and encouraging breakouts, so rinse away any trace of the night before with a good cleanser. Our favourites are the shea butter infused Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser and the more exfoliating Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Wash, both by Elemis.

Step 2 – Rehydrate.

Dehydrated skin is unhappy skin. Those fine lines, enlarged pores and sallow complexion that you see in the mirror after a night out are all caused by dehydration. Start the day by replenishing your skin from all angles. Drink plenty of water, and treat your skin to some extra hydration with a product that contains hyaluronic acid. This moisture magnet holds 1000 times its weight in water, so it’s a powerful tool when it comes to skincare. 

The 3-Pack Instant Facial Masks by Seoulista Beauty are great for those mornings when you want a low-effort, high-impact product, while The Organic Pharmacy 30ml Hyaluronic Acid Serum can be slathering straight on. 

Top tip: Store either product in your refrigerator for an additional cooling effect.

Step 3 – Get your blood pumping.

Stimulating blood flow is great for dehydrated skin as it helps to reduce puffy skin and reduce dark circles. You could go for a brisk run in the crisp morning air, but personally we prefer something a little less intensive. Skincare products formulated with caffeine provide the same effect, so pour yourself a tea or coffee and enjoy the rejuvenating effects of Clinique Superdefense Eye Cream.

Step 4 – Wake up those muscles.

Believe it or not, there are 43 muscles in the face, many of which will be feeling a little out of shape after a late night of drinking. You can help to stimulate circulation and increase skin brightness by taking your time to massage your creams and serums into the skin, focusing on all areas of the face. 

An alternative option if you’re short on time is to use a face cream that includes niacinamide, a form of Vitamin B which has been shown to reduce redness. This Water Drench Cream by Peter Thomas Roth is a firm favourite. 

Step 5 – Check in on your skin.

Throughout the day your skin can grow fatigued and lose its brightness, particularly if you’re working in an environment with air pollutants, such as in the city. For an afternoon pick-me-up, the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a handbag must-have. Acclaimed as a travel essential for busy jetsetters, this plant-based facial mist gives you an immediate boost of radiance, tightening pores and smoothing lines, wherever you are.

Step 6 – Rest and repeat.

You’ve made it! Top up the water bottle, get your pyjamas on, and settle down to a rom-com and some well-deserved chocolate snacks (choose dark chocolate for bonus antioxidants and brownie points).

A Reason To Smile #WorldSmileDay

Smile Makers: Meet the Brand

Beauty, health, nutrition and wellness no longer standing in isolation rather, a more holistic approach to beauty considers skin, body and mind as a whole entity.  An important element of this includes sexual wellbeing; something that Smile Makers have been dedicated to since launching in 2013. 

We caught up with the brand for National Smile Day and spoke with them about the health benefits of their products, their mission and got some top tips for choosing the right Smile Maker.

Sexual wellness and overall health

The wellness benefits of sexual activities reach far beyond plumped skin and flushed cheeks. From better intimate hygiene to pain relief, quality of sleep and self-confidence, solo sex and couple sex help us live happier and healthier lives. 

Yet, despite these benefits and the changes brought about by the sexual revolution, the topic remains often taboo and has been preempted by the shady adult industry. It’s time we create spaces out of the shadow, and in broad daylight to start an open and respectful conversation about it!

Enter Smile Makers…
For a joyful and educated sexuality

Smile Makers has been created to normalize the perception of female sexuality and invite women to explore and enjoy their sexuality. They do so by developing quality sexual products for women: friendly vibrators and premium lubricants that you can now find on allbeauty

Firm believers that sex is a normal part of life and an important component of our well-being, Smile Makers sell their products exclusively in health, beauty and fashion stores. Never in sex shops. They also believe that to change mindsets around female sexuality, education is key. That’s why their work with experts of female sexuality to develop a reliable sex education called Vulva Talks. They embed this knowledge in their products to bring you the best possible experience! 

 

Interested to start a journey of self-exploration? Here are their tips…

Things to consider to buy your first vibrator

First and foremost, when it comes to sex, nobody knows better than you what you like and want. But sometimes, we don’t even ask ourselves that question. Start there. Without prejudice or social pressure. It’s only you with yourself, and nobody will judge you! If you need a little help for that, take our quiz to get a personalized recommendation based on your preferences. 100% anonymous!

Other things to keep in mind:

 – What is it made of? The whole point of a sensual toy is to give yourself a great sensorial experience. So, it’s worth paying attention to the material used. Smile Makers vibrators are made of a silicone that undergoes a unique polishing process, making it incredibly smooth. 

– Choose a body-safe product. Smile Makers are made out of super food-grade silicone, which means they are as safe for the human body as baby kitchenware.

– Don’t let the buzz ruin the mood. Bullet vibrators can be loud. Like really loud. Besides the fact that you might want to keep your me-time activities to yourself, it’s also quite annoying. With less than 40dB sound level, Smile Makers vibrators know how to keep a low profile. 

Take the quiz now to find the Smile Maker for you!

Sleeptember with Neom

NEOM focus on wellbeing with small steps that make a big difference. From the shower drops that leave you energised and ready to go, to the candle that creates a tranquil calm zone in your busy home. 

September at NEOM becomes Sleeptember with a focus on their 100% natural Tranquillity fragrance – a blend of 19 of the purest possible essential oils including English lavender, sweet basil and jasmine. All expertly blended to help you relax and prepare for sleep.

NEOM Founder, Nicola Elliott, wasn’t always a great sleeper – years ago, when she was a jet setting journalist, working across two time zones (and partying across them too!) – sleep came pretty low down on her priority list.

Nicola slept when she could and, being a lot younger, it took some time for the effects to catch up. But of course, they did. We’re sleeping less than ever, but the fact is we’re living through an unprecedentedly busy digital age.

 


So here are Nicola’s tried & tested tips she keeps in what she calls her ‘Sleep Toolkit’…

1. UNPLUG 

The blue light that tech emits disrupts your sleep cycle. It cues the brain to be wide awake when it should be settling down. Make a promise to yourself to turn off electronic devices at a certain time and light your candles to bring on the cosy factor

2. SOAK IT OFF 

Nicola will happily take ANY excuse for a long hot soak in the tub – but as it helps aid sleep too – it’s a no brainer. A soak in the tub with the potent oils in the Perfect Night’s Sleep Bath & Shower Drops, and we’re on the path to sleep… 

3. MOVE EVERY DAY 

Exercise is a key factor in getting a better night’s sleep – but, the best bit – even exercising in fresh air for just ten minutes is enough to make a difference. A walk is good, but a run is even better – even if it’s short. 

4. MAGIC Mg 

Increasing your magnesium intake has wondrous effects on sleep – it helps deactivate adrenaline. Try out NEOMs Perfect Night’s Sleep Multi Mineral Bath Salts to smarten up your soak. Why not also throw in a few extra magnesium- rich green leafy vegetables, peas, nuts and seeds where you can? 


Discover below Nicolas top picks from NEOMs best selling Sleep range:

An hour a day just for you

As the days get shorter and the nights longer, it will soon be time to set our clocks back an hour. A tradition dating back to 1916 in the UK, resetting the time allowed farmers to get a headstart on the day, making the most of the limited daylight hours. But it isn’t only farmers who should get to reap the benefits of that extra hour, you can too. 

At allbeauty we believe in the importance of “me time”, those all too often infrequent moments when we prioritise our own mental wellbeing over the humdrum of daily life.

This Autumn, we challenge you to make the most of gaining an hour by adding self-care to your daily routine. One hour a day, just for you. 

It may sound like a pipe-dream, but taking an hour a day to show yourself some love is a habit that simply takes commitment on your part. It may be going to bed an hour early to enjoy a morning lie-in, or an early start to allow you to begin the day with a face mask and pedicure. Small changes can make a big difference to the quality of your daily life. 


Need inspiration? Here are some of the allbeauty team’s top suggestions for how to spend your power-hour:

Sleep

It may not be the most indulgent or glamorous option on our list, but sleep tops the charts for one of the most beneficial ways to spend an extra hour. Whether it means preparing your lunch and outfit the evening before, or hitting the hay earlier, getting an additional hour of sleep will leave you feeling rested, refreshed, and ready to face the day.

Encourage the sandman with these sleep-inducing secret weapons.

Smile Makers 

Ooh-er! Taking some time for self-discovery between the sheets is a fantastic way to prioritise your wellbeing. An orgasm releases oxytocin and dopamine, so you’ll not only be feeling great physically but will also reduce stress, relieve pain and boost your confidence. What better way to start the day?! Evening me-time comes with the added bonus of getting a better night’s sleep too! Win/win!

Pelvic Floor Trainer

It may not seem like the most thrilling way to indulge in self-care (especially after the previous suggestion), but taking time out of your day to do pelvic floor exercises is an investment in your future self. An estimated 3-6 million people in the UK experience urinary incontinence, minimise your risk with targeted pelvic floor training.

Candle and a Bath 

The ultimate in relaxation, a steaming bath paired with a fragrant candle is an ideal way to end the day. Let the heat of the tub soothe your muscles and soften your skin, while an aromatic candle indulges your senses and promotes relaxation. Perfection!

Face Mask 

We lead busy lives and our skin bears the brunt of that. Sensitivity, dehydration, sun-damage and exposure to pollution are all common factors that lead to lack lustre skin. With a range of face masks designed to target the full spectrum of dermatological complaints, treat yourself at least once a week, preferably in the company of a good book.

Foot mask / Pedicure

Feet are one of the most hardworking parts of our body but are rarely shown the care they deserve, particularly once the sandals have been packed away for the year. Show your tootsies some love with a weekly pedicure and foot mask available at allbeauty

Hair Treatments

As the clocks go back and Autumn arrives, our hair has a season of woolly hats, rain and wind to contend with. Treat your locks to regular moisturising hair masks to condition and strengthen your strands from root to tip.

Teeth Whitening 

With the cooler weather, we all reach for a comforting tea or coffee a little more often. Don’t let your teeth suffer for it. With the iWhite Instant Teeth Whitening Kit, you can have a whiter, brighter smile in just 20 minutes a day. The question is, what will you do with your other 40 minutes of me-time?! 


With such a wide range of ideas for prioritising your wellbeing, be sure to put the October 27th in your diary as the day your new self-care routine begins – you deserve it.
