Bloggers Love...Beauty Bar Event Review

I was excited to attend the first Bloggers Love.. event of 2014

Bloggers Love...Beauty Bar.
Held in the swank Penthouse in Lester square the following  beauty brands
ARK Skincare: 
Argentum Apothecary: 
Eve Taylor: 
Herra Haircare: 
La Cure UK: 
The Make Up Bullet: 
Yumi Lashes: 

showcased some of their amazing products some I had heard of and some I hadn’t.

Herra Hair Perfume 
was one of the products that I wasn’t so sure about until I spoke to one of the representatives. Not only does it make your hair smell nice with its warm floral sent but it contains ingredients such as:
Sunflower extract which not only protects structure of the hair but it helps provide protection against UV and Glycerin which helps provide ample hydration and seals in moisture, without weighing down the hair.
Herra Hair Perfume also works wonders on both synthetic and human hair extensions (I checked)

The Make Up Bullet:

I have watch many YouTube videos and read blogs about this product but it wasn’t available in the UK so one of the 1st thing I said to the rep was “Is this product available for purchase today” and died in side when I was told "No but it is now available on The Make Up Bullet  website."
My grief was short lived when I discovered that there was a sample in the goodie bags WOOP WOOP!

The Make Up Bullet is a hollow bullet shaped foam applicator which you can put on the end of your finger for precise make up application. There is a pointed end to helps with tricky areas such as under the eye and it has a soft textured surface which I imagine will leave a really smooth finish.

La Cure UK
Have a range of products which unique composition of minerals from the dead sea which  renowned for their therapeutic and beautifying powers.
I was given a small sample of the Natural Dead Sea Bath Salts which is said to relieve muscle tension and the stress of daily  life and  give natural relief for the symptoms of skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema. I only had a little bit so I can’t vouch for the long term effects but I used it last night and I found itvery refreshing and my skin felt very smooth.

I also tried the Papaya Body Butter which smells absolutely delicious! It has a nice creamy consistence without being greasy, absorbs really well into the skin and has a matt finish.

Argentum Apothecary 
this was a curious yet well packaged product.
Inspired by a dream had by one of the founders who wanted to create a product that would work on any skin type and contains  antioxidant and anti-bacterial Silver Hydrosol which helps  promote skin cell regeneration, and hydrating DNA HP and Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E.
Argentum Apothecary has a lovely sent which I not over whelming and it’s not too greasy. I would be especially interested to find out how it would benefit someone like me who has super greasy skin.

ARK Skincare
I really liked some of the products that this brand had to offer and I am interested to check out their ARK Age Aware Assessment. I especially loved their rang of candles which can be used to moisturise your skin!

As usual I enjoyed myself at the event but unfortunately I had to rush off early as I was invited to the Superdry LC:M show

Elle Macpherson Rotating Dry Body Brush review

I recently purchased the NO7 facial brush and one day while using it I thought “I would love a bigger one for my body”
I love exfoliation my body weather it’s with a scrub, brush or exfoliation gloves but having a rotate brush would make the task quicker and easier.
I googled rotating body brushes and I came upon the Elle McPherson Rotating Dry Body Brush.

As I read more about the products I learned about some of the benefits of exfoliating skin, which include: increasing circulation removing dead cells and stimulating renewal, helping to tone muscles and tighten skin and helping to stimulate the nervous system by increasing blood flow and rejuvenating the nervous system and helping to reduce stress and last but not least can help to reduce cellulite by increasing blood circulation to the skin, helps to break down and releases toxins that cause cellulite in legs and hips.
Sounds good ….

This weekend I indulged myself
The natural bristles are quite rough but are not uncomfortable, I was amazed at how much dead skin came off when I was using it (I would recommended doing this in the bathroom)

After using the brush I jumped into the shower and the water felt amazing on my skin!
When I finished washing and moisturized my skin it felt amazing and smooth.

Very simple to use the body brush comes in two parts which easily slot together, then you hit the power button and away the rotating bristles go.
The Palm grip makes the brush easy to hold and maneuverer but it could benefit from some kind of attachment which would make it easier to do your own back.

It says on the box it is safe to use this product every day but I would imagine that people with sensitive skin would be better off using it every other day.

The thing I didn’t like about the product was:

It makes a weird scrapey noise
It has to charge for 5 hours for 45 minutes use
With our help from someone else you can’t do your back

Before Christmas I told my brothers to buy this for me but obviously the didn’t because I ended up buying it for myself, but if they did they would have been in my good books for 2014 despite my few complaints I do like this product and I am happy I purchased it.

Have you tried Elle Macpherson Rotating Dry Body Brush or any kind of body brush?
What are your thoughts?
