A soft manual toothbrush just wasn’t working for me. Defying my dentists strict instructions, I’ve carried on using a manual ‘medium’ brush which cleans well but is contributing to my receding gums.
Enter the Ion-Sei toothbrush. With bristles that look like it's made from a JCloth, but this ionic patented technology not only removes plaque and bacteria better than others, it claims to suppress bacteria that cause plaque.
If this felt like a paid sponsored post...it is...I was provided the brush for the purpose of a thorough review. Those of you who know me can be sure that I will always give my honest opinions and in this case I am impressed with the brush and will continue to replace the brush heads in a month or two.
A huge 250g bag promising benefits with black heads, acne, exzema, psoriasis for a soothed, detoxed youthful skin of all types. A FDA Approved and GMP certified 100% natural and GMO free 100% Pure Bentonite Clay Powder and made in India. What's better it's vegan friendly with no animal testing.
The clay pulls dirt and grime from the skin. It evens out skin tone and unclogs the pores.
Mix 1 tablespoon with water, or rose water..I also added a drop of my inglot Face Oil. Very easy to use with no faffing around. I also really like that there's minimal packaging for a lot of product. Very environmentally friendly.
After removal, my face, was hydrated and taught. It felt comfortable and refreshed with a slight glow. In fact, I have slight eczema around my temples and haven't itched for a week! For my mature skin this is a great way to keep it cleansed and calm on a budget. I did experience mild redness on my cheeks which subsided shortly with no issues or irritation. I am particularly sensitive in this area.
10 DAY PEELING TREATMENT
This is where i'm hoping a sacrifice will benefit me in future...I mean...whose going to give a Foot Mask away to the needy right....? Well MisterZayani's feet aren't in good shape after all, and I figured if he has smooth feet, it benefits me afterall!
So, Abdul suffers from Athlete's Foot and has had it since before we met some 20+ years ago. The bedding catches on it and it's rough, tough skin. He does what he can with appropriate sprays and creams but it doesn't help.
So I was hoping the MAYBEAUTY Socks would work miracles. Please do read to the end to see how this treatment works and to see results before and after. There's also website and a voucher code for you to try. You can also click any of the photos to head straight to the MayBeaty website with 30% discount applied.
Before using the mask Abdul has cracks and deep hard skin on his heels that are painful to stand on. The balls of his feet are hard and dark in colour from years of hard skin. It's cracked and rough all over the toes and sides.
So before the mask, it's necessary to soak the feet. I plonked his feet in a tub with hot water and a pedi soak for 15 minutes as instructed.
Abdul said the gel felt cool and soothing with no irritations. There was no redness or irritation of the skin once the MayBeauty Socks were removed. Once the feet were washed, they looked hydrated and felt soft. The cracks looks like they'd penetrated product
Abdul's feet remains hydrated throughout the whole process. We noticed peeling skin started at Day 6. By Day 8, we say fresh new skin with no cracks. The stubborn heels were peeling well.
It's now over 10 days and skin peeling has slowed down. I feel he would benefit from another treatment for a final finish. The heels and balls of feet have a tiny bit of stubborn hard skin. The dark blue black patches have disappeared. Abdul's feet look so good. I've not seen them look so healthy in all the time i've known him. Peeling Masks will certainly be part of our once in a blue moon and certainly before holiday and summer pedicure routine
As I massaged it in, all these thoughts came to me. It was spreading so well, it was lush and felt moisturizing and I didn't need to reach for more. I felt each strand was being coated with this gorgeous shampoo...except it smelt like a polo mint and within a few seconds my scalp felt fresh ...like a polo mint. Now I don't like to read ingredients so that I can formulate my own opinions without distraction from blurb. By the time I got to the conditioner, my head started to feel cool sensations.
The conditioner was equally rich, same scent and spread really well. My hair felt very soft and fluffy whilst rinsing. Once I was done, the cool sensations on my scalp remained for a while afterwards.
The shampoo and conditioner contain menthol and peppermint oils that lead to the cooling sensations. Menthol is herbal and helps with hairloss, dandruff and eczema. The coolness is actually a tingling that's stimulating the blood around the scalp. In fact Neuma used only renewable, plant based ingredients. I love that they care for the earth.
The promise zero synthetic fragrance, sulfates, sodium chloride, parabens, and much more excluded that are environmental pollutants.
USDA certified organic, 90% recycled bottle, 100% certified wind power, vegan with no animal testing. This is music to my ears!
Now knowing all the benefits to mother earth, and for my hair, i've continued to use the Nuema shampoo and conditioner. In fact I have to go hunting for it in the other bathroom as my daughter Maya has been using it too. I'm happy for her to use a product that will help her given her history to alopecia. Also, a heartfelt thanks to https://klipshop.co.uk/ for sending me this to try.

MEERA'S HALDI, MEHNDI AND SAANJI
Three ceremonies - Pithi (Haldi Ceremony), Mehndi and Saanji. The Pithi is the indian version of a full body beauty parlour treatment. Traditional made with Tumeric (Haldi) which has anti fungal and anti bacterial properties which helps clear skin, chick pea flour (Chana) which helps soften and and hydrate the skin and yoghurt mixed with rose water which helps to calm redness. It adds a glow to the skin and rubbing this off after it dries also have a sloughing exfoliating effect. In the olden day, this was an affordable and perhaps before even beauty parlours, this was the only beauty treatment available. Image doing this and sitting in a sauna….1000 watt skin!!!
The mehndi is olden time make up for the skin. Mehndi itself is anti fungal, anti bacterial, and cooling for the body. It draws away heat whilst leaving a beautiful stain which gets richer and richer reaching optimum colour depth at 48 hours. It’s traditionally applied by the family members and in some parts, men have it applied too. Made with natural ingredients, it signifies the commencement of an imminent wedding and ultimately makes the bride surrender from planning and itineries to sitting calmly and finally being able to enjoy the moment and take it all in. It used to be done during the Sangeet which follows next in the video. However, as designs have become intricate and artful, patience, time and peaceful surroundings are required and is done a day in advance.
The Sangeet is another opportunity for a pre wedding party and a chance for the extended families of the bride and groom to meet before the wedding. It’s a pre wedding stress reliever and a really fun night.

ADD ME ON VERO: @NISHADAVDRA
Again I am so so honoured to be a part of Meera's ceremonies and thank the family for allowing me to film another of their special days to share with you.
IF someone told my 20 year old oily skin to try a face oil....I would have said 'no way José!'
But now i've hit my 40s, the change was unbelievable. I went from wiping away oil to suddenly dry, hot, irritated and red skin. Fed up of itching and bumpiness and everything else I went to a leading brand who convinced me.
After trying on an oil and loving the smell and texture and then taking some away to try...my skin transformed and I was a Face Oil keeper. I now understand that oils can balance over sebaceous skin and restore PH levels.
My bumpiness smoothed out, my face not only felt hydrated and all my irritations gone AND I WAS GLOWING! I found my Foundation blended well and the oils hydrated throughout the day and night.
Inglot's Skincare Line's ....INGLOT LAB 1983 have launched three new Face Oil's and I had to have my hands on them. Packaged in elite linen boxes with black branding, three different oils that all provide hydration, pore minimisation and tightening with each specialising in either pollution busting properties, anti ageing and wrinkles and skin balancing.
All three contain a combination of Tsubaki, Cotton Seed, Jojoba and Rosemary oils with additional oils for specific skincare. A drop of Face Oil for morning and night either used neat or mixed with cream. Is also a great primer for makeup that aids perfect blending and evening out of foundation. The formulation is for sensitive skin.
DREAM DROP FACE OIL - Slows down the aging process and smoothes wrinkles with Strawberry and Chia oils. Illuminating and brightening discolourations with vitamin C
SUNRISE DROP FACE OIL - Intensively hydrating with oil control balance with Cheery Kernel, Tsubaki and Alpine and Apple Oils
SPOTLIGHT DROP FACE OIL - Regenerating and protection from pollution and harsh elements with Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil. Tightens enlarged pores.
FIRST IMPRESSION: smoothes on and absorbs quickly. After 10 minute skin feels velvety, strangely not shiny at all and looking even.
SCENT: Smells pleasant and mild. I'm not good at describing scents but I want to say that it smells like a feint honeysuckle. All of them are mildly scented.
Initially my cheeks tingled slightly. It's a good tingle that puts a healthy little redness to the cheeks and I felt this area was feeling really soft to touch and slightly firm. The tingling and redness calms down after a few minutes and I wake up with no oil on my face.
After using this for some time, I noticed my pores seem minimised and my cheek area was especially blemish free. I can tell this because my foundation looked so much smoother and was having to use less product than usual. It was flawless and glowing.
I'll continue to keep these as part of my every day routine and will introduce one of these into my bridal makeup artist kit to blend foundation on clients.
The oils retail at £21 for 30 mls in a pipette dropper bottle. There's absolutely loads of oil. Available in store or at InglotUK. com
A special Thank You to Inglot's PR Team for sending these to me to try.

I absolutely love going here every year. Set in London's Olympia, this huge trade show for Hair and Salon professionals show cases products for nails, facials, massage, teeth, lashes, hair, training and Salon Software for Appointment booking systems.
I love most the demonstrations that takes place either on the stand or on the floor's stages. From competitions, to techniques for cutting and dying, hair extension systems and artistic hair and body art...it's a great place for inspiration.
I particularly love Patrick Cameron's show which takes place down those magical pink stairs in the lower stage. It's a ticket only show with limited spaces but a place for artists like me to style clients hair for events. I love the ease at which he creates ultra elegant styles in the most magical performance on stage!

I love sharing my experiences, things i love and most of all...I love teaching my tricks of the trade.
