Neal & Wolf – Glow & Harmony

Neal & Wolf – Glow & Harmony

When I was asked to try out hair styling products Glow* and Harmony* from Neal & Wolf I was very excited as it’s a brand I have read a lot about recently but have never tried. The brand is all about enjoying a little indulgence every day and this is reflected in their beautiful shimmery premium packaging. Neal & Wolf, the brainchild of Neil Capstick who has worked in the hair industry for over 20 years, has concentrated on bringing out just a small number of products but with the very best ingredients and they are only sold in specially picked salons. The first of the two products that I tested out was Harmony Intensive Hair Treatment which is a conditioner suitable for all hair types. This product has been developed without containing any parabens or sulfates and has not been tested on animals, and I think it’s really great to see more haircare brands shunning some of the nasty ingredients that we find in our cosmetic products.

Tresemme – Keratin Smooth 60 Second Treatment Shot

Tresemme – Keratin Smooth 60 Second Treatment Shot

I received this new Keratin Smooth 60 Second Treatment Shot from Tresemme in my August Glossybox. Tresemme isn’t a brand I would normally choose, but this little tube reminded me a bit of the VO5 Hot Oil Treatments that were popular some years ago and I was intrigued to try it out. This Keratin Smooth 60 Second Treatment Shot aims to smooth and hydrate the hair and to make it easier to style. You apply the deep conditioning product after shampooing mainly to the mid-lengths and the ends of your hair, and then leave it on for 60 seconds before rinsing off. Tresemme recommend using this Treatment Shot once a week, and I have found that one tube will last for 2 applications as long as your hair isn’t too long, you just reinsert the long pointy end of the torn-off nozzle into the hole to re-seal the tube.

Bobbi Brown – Conditioning Brush Cleanser

Bobbi Brown – Conditioning Brush Cleanser

I am a massive fan of Bobbi Brown products and I love the fact that they often have online offers for free delivery or free gifts when you spend over a certain amount. I purchased this Conditioning Brush Cleanser a while ago to bump up my order total so that I could receive a free gift. This isn’t the sort of product I would have bought otherwise as I have usually just used a little bit of liquid soap to wash my make-up brushes. So, is it worth spending extra on a product designed to help clean your brushes? Conditioning Brush Cleanser is a clear liquid soap, with little fragrance, packaged inside a signature Bobbi Brown black tube. Rinse your make-up brush with warm water, then squirt a little of the product into your hand and rub the brush gently over your hand massaging the brush hairs in little circles to remove all of the powder and dirt. You should be careful not to get the brush hairs tangled...
