WIN! Energy Boosters Set From Neom Organics

Recharge your beauty routine + WIN £85 worth of Neom goodies!

You might be looking forward to an extra hour in bed this weekend thanks to the clocks going back, but here’s three ways to recharge your beauty routine that are better than sleep – yes, really! 

The clocks go back this Sunday (28th October 2018) but rather than spending an extra hour asleep, we’ll be bounding out of bed thanks to Neom! Their Scent To Boost Your Energy Range is complex blend of 21 first-pressed essential oils such as lemon and basil, purposefully chosen to encourage pure, natural energy.

For your chance to win a selection of Scent To Boost Your Energy goodies worth £85, simply enter the competition below and tell us how you’ll be spending your extra hour! Here’s our ideal way to start the day:

1. Relax in the bath

How many of us make time for a bath nowadays? Especially in the morning?! Though delightfully relaxing, baths don’t have to be before bed. Rather than spending an extra hour lounging in bed, try waking up slowly with the Neom Organics Energy Burst Bath & Shower Drops. Catch up on social media, watch an episode of your favourite show, tune into the morning news or finally start reading that book you’ve been meaning to read- you’ll be ready for the day in no time!

2. Pop a face mask on

Everyone loves a face mask, but the Sleep Power Recharge Mask from thisworks is an allbeauty favourite! Designed to recharge and re-energise skin, this bright blue mask helps clear skin and leaves it feeling softer and looking more refreshed. Apply an even layer all over your face and leave for at least 30 minutes.

3. Exfoliate

Probably the most skipped part of anyshower routine, exfoliating is super important to prevent dead skin build-up and unclog pores. It’s also a great way to add a little zing in your step in the morning! We love the Grumpy Cow Uplifting Shower Scrub from Cowshed. Made from bamboo scrub particles and with energising ginseng extracts, massge into wet skin to boost circulation and nourish skin.

Why Looking After Your Feet Should Be Your Top Priority

Why looking after your feet should be your top priority this winter

With a change in season fast approaching and temperatures starting to drop, it’s even more important to step up our beauty routines, and that applies to foot-care too!

And just because our feet go into hiding in Autumn and Winter, doesn’t mean we should forget about them. In fact, feet tend to needeven more care and care during the colder months thanks to the colder air, central heating, and closed and often tighter-wearing shoes. It’s time ramp up the foot pampering now more than ever!

Why is it important to care for your feet?

Research has shown that the blood supply in the feet is hugely affected by the fluctuating temperature. So when the temperature drops and your feet become cold, your heels can become incredibly hard and crack.

Did you know? Tights and socks can restrict your foot’s blood supply, causing cold, dry feet”

How to prevent dry, cracked soles:

In order to keep the soles of your feet healthy and happy for this season and beyond, it’s important to exfoliate and moisturise them regularly to prevent the build up of hard skin.  For beautifully soft feet all-year round, we’d recommend the best-selling Exfoliation Foot Peel andwith the newly launched Extra Rich Foot Cream from Baby Foot. 

What makes Baby Foot so special?

Described as ‘weird’, ‘gross’ and the ‘best thing ever’, Baby Foot is Japan’s no.1 selling foot peel.  A total foot care package for the feet, the Exfoliation Foot Peel takes just 60-minutes to get to work on dead skin build up. Formulated with 17 types of natural extracts which both exfoliate and moisturise at the same time, it works harder than any pedicure can achieve. The principal ingredient in the Exfoliation Foot Peel is fruit acid; a super gentle ingredient when compared with other acids.

Baby foot how it works allbeauty blog

How does Baby foot work?

The unique fruit acid formula penetrates the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes which holds the layers together. With this process, the skin is un-damaged and peels away from the fresh layers beneath; with no pain experienced at all!

When the peeling is all done (which is usually around the 10-day mark), your feet will look and feel as though they’re reborn and softer than you could ever achieve with the typical pedicure tools available.

How can I maximise the results of Baby Foot?

The Extra Rich Foot Cream is the essential aftercare care product to the Exfoliation Foot Peel. This rich and hydrating cream is enriched with Shea butter and provides your feet with exactly what they need post-peel; intense much-needed moisture! It’s just really important to remember that the Extra Rich Foot Cream should only to be applied once the peeling process is completely finished.

Exfoliation and moisturising your feet really do go hand-in-hand. After-all, it’s hard for moisturiser to penetrate the skin deeply if hard skin is there; highlighting the need for both products for the absolute maximum results.

Devised by the renowened perfumers Annick Menardo and Honorine Blanc, CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN is a play of contrasts, as infinitely varied as the personas of the women who inspire it. A woody floral fragrance, it fuses strength with fragility and freshness with sensuality to ceate a dynamic and modern scent.

The Scent

Evoking the ethos of CALVIN KLEIN WOMAN, each ingredient  is respected and celebrated – the individual
is as vital as the collective, and neither can exist without the other,  combined to create an unexpected and unique woody floral – a contradiction in terms. In this fragrance, dynamic and modern, the wearer discovers an innate duality, a constant tension between differing elements, and a marriage of opposites. It represents an olfactory portrait of the multi-layered idea of femininity today.

  • Top notes: eucalyptus acorns, black pepper, citrus
  • Mid notes: Orange flower petals, magnolia grandiflora, Jasmine absolute
  • Dry notes: alaskan cedarwood, Olibanum essential oils, Ambrox® Super

The campaign

CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN is a celebration of women, by women. Developed with an all-female cast, the CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN campaign champions iconic women of past generations and celebrates heroines of contemporary culture.

#IAMWOMEN

Created in partnership by Lloyd & Co. and artist Anne Collier, whose distinct and immediately recognizable photographic artwork also features on both the packaging and the radical flacon design, the CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN campaign stars two women helping to shape a profound new Hollywood landscape: LUPITA NYONG’O and SAOIRSE RONAN.

Iconic women

Award-winning actors and voices of their generation, both women are universally recognized for their unique talent, creativity, intelligence and strength of character.
Calvin Klein Women allbeauty blogAspirational figures and inspirations to women around the world, both Nyong’o and Ronan feature in the CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN campaign in a pair of striking and direct portraits by Collier, simultaneously challenging and inviting the observer into the CALVIN KLEIN universe.

You can be any type of woman you want to be. Seeing people doing something that they’re passionate about is inspiring. It encourages you to do the same, to feel the same.” – Saoirse Ronan

In turn, these inspiring women have chosen figures from the past who have inspired them – icons of femininity that have shaped their identities, as creatives, and as women.

“Eartha Kitt and Katharine Hepburn are examples of people who didn’t accept the status quo; they made room for themselves.” – Lupita Nyong’o
