NEW extensive brow collection #BENEFITBROWS launches 24th June.

brows

If you hadn’t noticed there’s a brow revolution. As a make-up expert nowadays I know the importance of brows to suit your face and features. A few years ago I managed to fly over to New York to have a treatment in the world famous Brow Bar in the Trump Tower that included treatments upstairs in the Avon Spa. I’ve also rearranged brows over the years whether it’s bleaching, changing the shape and colour, making them thicker and longer to create all sorts of effects. We used hairspray back in the day to push up the brows to keep them in shape. However I was lucky enough to be invited by Camilla London’s head PR to the press launch on the Good Ship Benefit on the HISPANIOLA  and then we were sworn to secrecy for ages about this extensive brow launch.

My products arrived in a pink parcel so that I could try out the products myself. There are many types of effects, colours and thankfully ones that are dark enough for black brows.  The nine-product range comprises of mistake-proof shades that address every brow issue out there, from easily faking a natural brow to grooming unruly hairs from the lightest to the darkest in shades 1-6.

For a full cover of the product range you should view Lisa Potter – Dixon You Tube  explanation in full detail.  She’ll be giving you the history and low down on everything you need to know leading up to the launch date 24th June 2016.  So you’ll have the full facts on what you’ll be looking for to tame your brows. Btw #BENEFITBROWS are for absolutely everyone…Bold is Beautiful in the month of May 2016..

They say Eat it.. Wear It.. Swear By It..Vita Coco Coconut Oil 100% Raw, Organic & Extra Virgin Cold Pressed..

The first time i found Extra Virgin 100% Cold Pressed Organic Vita Coco Coconut Oil happened to be in a goodie bag given out at Kinky Octopus press event in Soho around the corner from Berwick Street Market London  .  In true Brasilian party style we were offered Caipirinha’s,  Pão de queijo, some of my favourite Brasilian food & drink… On display were beautiful colourful wrist bands  “Lembrança do Senhor do Bonfim da Bahia”   which refers to the good life…these wrist bands are very synonymous with Bahia Brasil and is the backdrop of a place that’s full of culture, creativity and immense colour.

I finally got round to opening the jar and instinctively applied it to my face before reading the label, and then felt horrified when i discovered it was used for cooking, baking & frying. Thankfully  it went on to say, “Goes beyond the call of beauty as a moisturizer and hair conditioner,” and spread it on your toast! Really! 🙂

Lots of people around the world have used coconut oil for many years, countries such as Indonesia, Australia, Philippines, Caribbean, India…. It can be used to soothe, calm and hydrate the skin & hair all in one go including offering an anti – bacterial agent for wounds and sunburn. Massage into the hair & scalp helping those affected by a dry scalp & dandruff. As an insect repellent just add a little peppermint oil which keeps away the bugs.  Then there’s the cooking element to add to the endless list of benefits…There’s only one precaution to using this product and that’s NOT to sit directly in the sun without any UV sun protection. You will burn no matter how much melanin pigment you have in your skin. Protecting yourself from direct sunlight is very important to very healthy skin long-term.

I really enjoy using this product and know many people who love it too….as the saying goes ( sent to me by the PR) Eat it. Wear It. Swear By It.
