Aveda launch Pure-Fume Hair Mists

I'm not sure how I feel about this latest launch from Aveda - the Pure-Fume Hair Mists. There are three of them, from three different corners of the globe, and all making your hair smell lovely, as well as adding softness and shine. I just don't know if I want my hair to smell. I used a new shampoo last week that was quite overpowering. I like the smell of my husband's freshly washed hair, you know, that clean smell. But I'm not a fan of … [Read more...]

Aveda’s Tulasara Wedding Masque

Did anyone get engaged on Valentine's Day? Well, you can look forward to, according to Aveda, your wedding day skin - which will be more radiant than ever before! I have to say that I did feel like I was glowing on my wedding day - it was the most joyful and fun day of my life. But, my eyes also had a bit of conjunctivitis in them, down to a bizarre reaction to a cleansing balm I regularly wore. However, my skin was radiant, and Aveda's … [Read more...]

Aveda’s NEW Hydrating Treatment Lotion

At this time of year, it's important to remember to change up your skincare routine a little bit. As the temperatures outside drop, and the central heating gets cranked up, your skin can really suffer. I get dry patches in winter, but not if I properly hydrate my skin, and add extra hydration to my beauty regime. I like to exfoliate more, use more masks, and generally up the moisture in the winter months. So, this new Aveda Botanical Kinetics … [Read more...]

The clocks go forward this weekend, so the nights get lighter - but that doesn't mean there's no room for a little more light thanks to Aveda's 2016 Earth Month Light The Way Candle. Aveda enters its 10th year this year of shining a light on the global need for clean water.

Aveda’s Daily Light Guard

Aveda's latest big launch is a sunscreen for the face, to help prevent ageing from the sun. Sadly, when the sun shines, mixed with our joy is fear of it burning, or ageing us. The sun is wonderful - and we do need some Vitamin D, but we have to be careful of its rays, and not getting too much of it. This isn't a holiday sunscreen as such, but, if you're off on a city break, or we get a heatwave here (here's hoping!), then it's perfect. AND - … [Read more...]
