October Favourites

1. Tangle Teezer
I absolutely love my tangle teezer! At first I was sceptical as to the benefits of using this versus a normal hairbrush. But it really does make a big difference. It makes brushing so much easier and therefore, less breakage and damage to your hair. Bonus!
2. Ted Baker Body Spray
I love love love the smell of this body spray. I got this as part of a gift set and have purchased it on its own since. I think its around Β£6 ish – so its not too bad price wise. I have this in my bag all the time!
3. Batiste Dry Shampoo
This really is a life saver of a bad hair day! I love the way it makes your hair look fresh and also smell fresh! The scent of this particular one is quite sweet – really lovely! I love the fact they have different scents so you can choose which one is for you.
4. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
I have never used primers regularly before using this product. I received this in the ‘Glamour Box Power List’ beauty box edition. It isn’t full size but I’ve used it everyday since receiving it and its still near enough full. I will definitely buy this again when it runs out as I think its more than worth it.

    I love body sprays more than perfumes, it looks like it smells really nice. Also I never used a primer underneath my foundation, I really need to try it! Thanks for the info Alex πŸ™‚ xo

    I was first a bit sceptical with Tangle Teezers but once you have them, you will never want another brush ever again. They are so handy and practical. Love your bright pink colour! xx

    The batiste dry shampoos really are a lifesaver! I love the tropical scent. I definitely need to look into the tangle teaser xx

    Is the Laura Mercier primer any good? I've never really used primer, apart from when its in moisturisers sometimes but I've seen quite a few bloggers chatting about it too. Is it worth the investment? xx

    • 20 November 2014 / 12:10 pm

      Yeah I love it. I never used primers before I found this one. It's really moisturising which is great because I personally have quite dry skin and I really hate it when make up clumps – it just looks awful. This product helps it go on smoother and last longer. It is probably a tad expensive but I feel it's worth it πŸ™‚ xx

    It pained me to spend over Β£10 on my Tangle Teaser but it's the best money i've ever spent!

    I've seen the tangle teaser around but could never take the plunge, how does it work? i love batiste too btw πŸ˜‰

      Just like a normal brush really πŸ™‚ except it's smaller and more compact. I think it's much better than a normal brush though as it's less damaging to your hair and easier to get knots out! πŸ™‚
