Lauren Conrad Beauty

 I must confess, I never really got into the whole The Hills/The City thing, although I’ve always been a fan of Lauren’s look.

Over twelve chapters Lauren covers skincare, haircare, diet and fitness, nail painting and makeup tips (including her winged out eye liner!). I haven’t read any of Lauren’s other books, but I was really impressed by her writing style – she comes across as very down to earth and friendly, and not at all patronising. I was really happy to see that Lauren stresses the importance of finding your own beauty, and a range of women are used to illustrate through the various chapters.

As you can see, the book is set out nicely with helpful pictures and just enough text. I think the chapters make the book very easy to dip into and it is nice to go back to certain points when you need them.

Lauren doesn’t mention any brands in the book as she doesn’t want it to become ‘outdated’ when new products are released. You can find out about Lauren’s favourite products on her blog LaurenConrad.com.

Lauren Conrad Beauty would make a great gift for someone just getting into makeup and beauty, right through to someone in their twenties who is looking for a few tips or perhaps a new look!

I was amazed to find this book for under £10


Wella SP Luxe Oil Keratin Restore Treatment Mask

Did you know that your hair is made of a protein called Keratin which can be damaged by heat tools and colouring?

Using a deep conditioner like the Wella System Professional Luxe Oil Keratin Restore Treatment Mask* is a good way to restore Keratin within the hair shaft and reconstruct each strand from the inside.

As well as Keratin protein, the mask also contains Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil and Almond Oil to completely nourish and leave your hair looking smooth and healthy! After shampooing I gently squeeze any excess water out of my hair and apply this mask for around five minutes then rinse thoroughly – I use a Twistband style bobble to whack it up into a bun so the conditioner is kept off my skin. This mask has a really lovely light vanilla/almond scent which lingers after blow drying so you can enjoy it whenever you swish your hair!I was really pleased with how silky soft and shiny my hair looked after using this treatment mask, and it’s now a part of my weekly hair care routine – every Sunday I like to use a detoxifying shampoo and a deep conditioner! Over time the use of Keratin treatments can help make your hair stronger, but please be aware that the overuse of Keratin treatments can be harmful, resulting in brittle and snapping hair. If you limit your use of Keratin treatments to once or twice a week then you can look forward to glossy, healthy locks!
