wild about beauty
Last week I was invited to spend a morning with Louise Redknapp and Kim Jacob to celebrate the latest launch from their makeup line Wild About Beauty; the Spring/Summer 2013 Safari Nights Collection.

The collection includes three limited edition nail varnishes, an additional Nultrilips Balm and the Safari Nights palette (seen above and below). The limited edition palette – at £29 and free from parabens and petrochemicals like all of their products – is a complete steal. Focused around the ever-elusive ‘glow’, the palette contains a blush (03 Kitty), bronze highlight (02 Benny), gloss (02 Sasha), multi-purpose tint (02 Sandra) and eyeshadows in both creams (03 Buster and 02 Edna) and powders (03 Aine and 08 Polly) – all of Mrs Redknapp’s favourite shades.

Wild about Beauty will be donating £4 to the Born Free Foundation with every Safari Nights Palette sold.

Phytonectar Shampoo
Though I’ve been pleased with the results of all my trialled products from haircare brand Phyto, nothing stands out quite as much as their “Phytonectar“. True to their branding, Patrick Alès‘ vision of creating plant-based and environmentally-conscious hair products has tricked down to create yet another powerful botanical remedy. Phytonectar is a hydrating shampoo for dry and over-processed hair (check, check, for me!) with medium-to-course texture (check, tick, yes, yes, YES!).

The product itself is a super-thick emulsion, enriched with orange blossom wax and St. John’s Wort (20%), which gently cleanses and revives even the most dehydrated, brittle hair. As it is a natural product, it comes without parabens, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, and phthalates. This means while the shampoo doesn’t have the “lather” that chemical-filled shampoos trick us into believing means “clean hair“, it is filled with the most incredible, nourishing, and natural hair helpers.

If you want soft, frizz-free, and (most importantly) healthy hair, dump the sudsy shampoos and grab a bottle of Phytonectar.
