The Bodyshop White Headband
Advantages: Very useful for keeping your hair out of your eyes
The hospital I attend for diabetic checkups has a few small shops and coffee shops in it, one of them being The Body Shop, and I have to walk past this when I go there. On my last trip I had a look around and bought a few bits one of them being the white head band. I had recently had a side fringe cut into my hair and was always looking for clips and bands to keep it out of my face while doing my make up.
The head band came with very little packaging just a clear polythene bag like a lot of Body Shop products, it cost me just under £3.50 which at first I thought was a bit expensive for just a head band but after using it for a few weeks I have changed my mind as it was worth every penny.
The head band is in keeping with all the body shop products and made from 100% fair-trade cotton and feels very soft, the small shop I bought mine from only had this in white and I'm assuming this is the only colour choice as I have only ever seen it in white on the website. The band is slightly elasticised making it comfortable to wear without feeling like you have a brace around your head, tight head bands for some reason always make me want to screw up my eyes and squint, on the other hand it has never slipped down over my eyes when I'm wearing it. The head band is approximately 5cm's wide so it holds a good chunk of hair back.
Since I bought this I can honestly say I've used it everyday, I always wear make up and find this so useful to pull my hair back from my face when applying it, it has put an end to getting mascara in my hair most mornings. I always use this when I use a face mask, rather than just pulling my hair back in a pony tail or clips, which works to a certain extent but since having my hair cut I find some always falls out and get stuck in the mask, this means I can apply the mask and not have to worry about my hair, its also really useful if you pluck your eyebrows.
If you apply make up or face masks or creams I would certainly recommend The Body Shop White Head Band, its a simple product but one that is so useful, I have washed it several times as I sometimes manage to get foundation or powder on it, I just do it by hand in soapy water or on a regular wash in the machine, either way it washes up fine, hasn't stretched at and remains lovely and soft.
In my opinion this was worth he £3.50 I paid for it and would make a really useful gift, its certainly earned 5 stars.
Summary: A useful product
