      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Feels all clever and professional but is really a faux facial product

      I bought L'Oreal ReNoviste Anti Ageing Glycolic Peel Kit after coming across it quite by accident in Tesco. I'd been browsing and come across the reduced section which happened to have slightly battered silver box and I investigated further.
      Some of the first things you see on the box are words like 'facial care innovation', 'rejuvenating skin re-initialiser' and 'inspired by professional techniques'. Which sounds good though re-initialising has me foxed!

      It suggest it can boost production of collagen, make skin appear more dense and firmer and significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles in 4 weeks whilst smoothing the skin and giving back radiance and luminosity. Marvellous, that sounds great. However, clever wording is sometimes the key and suggests and idea rather than a fact.

      Best give it a go.

      Inside there are 4 bottles, one containing the peel, one containing the neutraliser and then the moisturiser. The 4th is a tiny empty bottle with a measurement mark, this is to pour the contents of bottle 1 into for a correct measure and then to be applied with cotton wool, using only the contents of the measuring bottle.
      It stings a little, like a toner does but otherwise the clear fluid seems innocent. It contains glycolic acid which is used in professional skin peels and apparently this is all good for the skin, stimulating new collagen production.
      After five minutes another clear fluid is applied to neutralise the peel and finally moisturiser is applied to rejuvenate the skin.

      It takes less than 10 minutes to complete the whole treatment and it is recommended that you do that 3 times a week on non consecutive days. I never get the chance nor have the staying power to follow the pattern but I probably use it weekly at the moment.
      I can't say I've seen a fabulous result, but then, I'm not especially old or wrinkly, just getting to a stage where I need a bit more than the standards trappings.

      Perhaps with more persistent use on older skin the results might be more apparent but in my experience a good facial is more beneficial with faster results and greater pampering benefits.
      My skin feels tighter after use but then it would if I used a face masque or pore strip and a good wash.

      However, price wise it's relatively cheap at around £12, though mine was a snip at just £2.14 because of the battered box!

      Buy a new foundation.

      I was given L'oreal Visible Lift Anti-wrinkle foundation for Christmas and so far I like it. My husband bought it for me along with all the other presents he gave me. Of course, he did have an idea on what he should get me, as I wrote a list for him before he went shopping. I suppose all you women do that before letting your man go out and buy all the wrong things. If he knows what you want then fair enough, but mine never does! If you need make-up, then it's best to write a list with all the right shades for them to buy.

      The L'Oreal Visible Lift Anti-Wrinkle Foundation was the best present for me. It is easy to apply onto the face and it does make your skin look flawless and clear. It comes in liquid form and your skin gets an even tone after it's applied. The skin then looks young and wrinkle free, as it lifts the skin for 24 hours.

      You can buy it in 4 different shades too. They are: sand beige, light beige, true beige and nude beige.

      It, also, works very quickly lifting the face clear of wrinkles (if you have any).

      You can buy this foundation in most stores such as Debenhams or Boots. It costs around £10 or £12 in sterling each in England.

      It is a new foundation and it is worth a try. It's the best buy yet.

      If you use this type make-up and would like a change, then use L'Oreal Visible Lift Anti-Wrinkle Foundation.

      I would definitely recommend this to any woman of any age. It works wonders and you will never want to be without it in the end.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        With my daughter’s hair getting longer and longer and the fights over brushing her hair getting my physical every day I decided I needed a weapon to help me. My daughter is only 17 months old but is one of the most determined children you could ever meet. She has a lot of will power and determination, and though this will be great for her when she is older for me now it means that everything is an argument.

        Everyone always comments on my daughter gorgeous sandy coloured mid length hair. We bath three times a week with Johnson’s baby bath which leaves her hair lovely and soft though we have a huge problem with tangles. Her hair is thick yet very fine and I did not want to start using a wash out conditioner on her hair as I feel that is too much fuss for a 17 month old child. Also it used to be a battle to wash her hair but we have finally overcome that so I do not want to prolong her hair washing experience.

        So, the answer for me was to try L’Oreal Tangle Tamer. I chose L’Oreal simply because that was the only product of this type that was in my local chemist and for £1.89 I thought it was reasonable priced.

        The bottle is bright lime green and is shaped like a fish, which I guess is fun for older toddlers but was of no interest to my daughter. The packaging definitely makes it stand out and makes it look expensive. It comes in just one, 200 ml size which last us just over a month with daily use. The curved shape does make it easier for you to hold, especially with wet hands.

        The spray is clear in colour and looks basically like water. The smell is gorgeous and fruity. A real clean and invigorating smell. My daughter seems to like the smell too. The smell does linger throughout the day but as it is a nice fresh smell this is a positive thing rather than negative. The product is extremely gentle on my daughters skin and we have never had any bad reaction to it. Obviously you keep it away from eyes and out of the reach of children.

        You can use the spray on wet or dry hair which is great as we use it after bath time and in the morning. If you use it on wet hair all you need to do is ensure the hair is damp and spray from root to tip and then comb through. It really is that simple and effectively detangles her hair. As my daughter is still young and the weather is cold I dry her hair with a hair dryer rather than allow her hair to dry naturally. I have found that it helps her hair dry a little quickly and her hair is still tangle free after chasing her around the house with the hairdryer!

        We use this spray in the morning too as not only does it detangle her hair but leaves it smelling gorgeous and makes it look shiny and healthy. To use it on dry hair all you do is spray over the hair and comb through - nice and easy. It also helps with styling hair and also nit checks!

        We have also found this spray great when my daughter puts sweets in her hair. I spray her hair around the sweet and it helps you to get it out without the need to cut the sweet out of their hair. Her hair is obviously sticky afterwards and the spray can help, along with a squirt of shampoo, to get it out of her hair.

        Also this spray is great for the whole family after you go swimming. It detangles and gets rid of that horrible straw like feeling that your hair can get after swimming.

        I have used this product on my hair on a few occasions when I have not had time to wash my hair and I have been happy with the results. If your hair is a little greasy it gives it a temporary boost and leaves it shiny. This effect does not last all day long but is useful if you need to pop out before you wash your hair.

        The bottle lasts as just over a month, using it at least once a day. The spray costs between £1 - £2 depending where you shop which I think is extremely good value for money considering it takes the hassle out of combing hair and also gives hair I lovely shine and smell.

        I have no hesitation in recommending this product not only to help you tame your Childs hair and stop the tears that tangled, knotted hair causes but as a quick temporary boost for your own hair. It detangles with barely any fuss and leaves you time to argue over different things!! Lol!

        Thanks for reading, Em XX

          br>< br> My young hairdressing apprentice nervously sidled up to me as I was deep in conversation with a client as we were discussing her hair styling requirements and then tried to interrupt me. My apprentice was a very discreet and experienced trainee so I realised she wouldn?t bother me unless it was important. I excused myself and joined my apprentice, with her very concerned face, in a quiet corner of the salon. I only needed to glance briefly at the firm rubber highlighting cap she was clutching to see there was a serious problem. The close fitting cap worn by clients having a full head of bleached highlights was full of bleached clumps of hair. The woman the hair belonged to was sitting on the other side of the salon at a back basin, completely unaware that half her head of hair had detached itself from her head and was sitting snugly in the cap. There were two outcomes from this dreadful experience. The first was the histrionic reaction by the client when she saw her hair and it was only under pressure that she admitted to not being truthful with me when asked if she had treated her hair with any chemical products since her last salon visit to me. She had home-permed and coloured it only the night before (OK! I should have done a strand test!) The second outcome was that I promised myself I would never use strong bleach on my own hair. So why did I come home from a Superdrug shopping spree with a box of L?Oreal Multi-Tonal Colour System? L?Oreal Multi-Tonal Colour System is an innovative idea for those confident enough to colour their hair at home and probably in this case, advisably with a friend. The system promises professional looking high and low lights. Indeed, after many years as a qualified master hairdresser (even after describing the above experience) I had no qualms about doing it myself-except for one. In order to highlight sections of hair a darker, even colour base is needed hence the highlight mixture can only consist
          of tw o elements-bleach and peroxide. I colour my hair using a beige Herbal Colourant with no added bleach and I?ve been happy with this hair product for several years. I so wish I?d stayed happy! I selected Toasted Coconut (Base Colour) with Light Blonde as the highlight colour. All the shades seemed to be edible as in Brown Sugar and Iced Latte. The Toasted Coconut base colour was very similar to my own shade and I did fancy the random highlights as illustrated on the very large burgundy coloured box that contained the L?Oreal Multi-Tonal Colour System. The enclosed instruction leaflet was expertly presented and the procedure very clearly explained with diagrams and text broken into steps. Step 1: Colour all over. Yes! squeezing the tube of crème gel colourant into the bottle of developing cream was simple. Applying to my dry and unwashed hair using the ?expert quality gloves? supplied proved to be no problem. After twenty five minutes I rinsed the product off until the water ran clear and even though my hair was still wet I loved the Toasted Coconut shade. I do so wish I had left it at that! Step2: The instructions told me to mix the developing cream (Shall we call it PEROXIDE) and the lightening powder (Shall we call it BLEACH) together until smooth in the provided container. Then apply in strands to my damp hair using the weeny bottle brush, or precision brush. At this stage I?d add that it might be useful to have a friend or a compliant husband to help with applying the mixture (BLEACH and PEROXIDE) to the back sections of hair. There are four photographs guiding the user how to apply the mixture (BLEACH and PEROXIDE) to all one length, layered, fringed or curly hair. I have thick, all one length curly hair with a fringe that I sometimes blow-dry straight and other times leave to dry naturally curly. Mmmm! So using the second pair of ?expert quality gloves? provided I applie d the mixture (BLEACH and
          PEROXIDE) to sele cted strands with no difficulty. My selected strands went stiff and hard (Just like BLEACH and PEROXIDE mixed together) I waited fifteen minutes then rinsed it all off my hair and applied half the conditioner that is supplied with the L?Oreal Multi-Tonal Colour System, saving the other half for future use as recommended. Hello there fluffy badger head! I hate it! The conditioner has made my hair fluffy and fly away and totally uncontrollable. Even worse is the bleached bits have gone straight, dry and dead looking. The step one Toasted Coconut shade has left the hair that wasn?t touched by the mixture (BLEACH and PEROXIDE) beautifully coloured and naturally bouncy-what you can see of it, as the bleached strands are overpowering, leaving little contrast even though I applied the mixture (BLEACH and PEROXIDE) to thin strands of my hair for subtle highlights. Now supposing I had liked the results? Think of this! If in a few weeks time I had used this product again with the Toasted Coconut giving me an even base colour then the second step of applying the BLEACH to selected strands then its highly likely I?d place the BLEACH onto strands of hair that had been bleached before isn?t it? It is equally as likely that I?d place the mixture (BLEACH and PEROXIDE) onto virgin hair as well isn?t it? This means that over a period of time the strongest and healthiest head of hair could end up over bleached, broken, dull, split and snapping off. I see the only hair types surviving this colouring procedure are those that are kept short and trimmed frequently. Certainly not all one length hair like mine. Bleach and peroxide mixed together are very powerful and potentially dangerous chemicals and there is no doubt in my mind that they damage the hair. I already knew this so why did I succumb to the picture on the box? The L'Oreal Multi-Tonal Colour System is a brilliant ho me hairdressing concept. The RRP is twelve pounds but
          is available on offer in m any retail outlets at nine pounds. This represents a huge saving against the cost of going to an experienced colourist for a skilled hairdressing result. They will have much more control in where on the hair they place this damaging mixture. But is it worth the saving? I don?t think so. I believe this product will have a short shelf life as users realise the damage the build up of bleach can cause to their hair. Me? I have spent the last week intensively conditioning my hair, regularly trimming the ends and will in future stick to my natural Herbal Colourant. I have the condition in control now and the overall look is alright but not that impressive. It has taken me six weeks to repair my hair after using this product. If things don't improve I'll visit a qualified colour artist in a reputable hair salon so I can look like a sleek two toned badger-and not a fluffy badger head!
