The Monday Piece - SmoothSkin Gold IPL Hair Removal

This week's Monday Piece is on SmoothSkin Gold IPL Hair Removal! My sister and I were given the opportunity to give this IPL hair removal tool a go, as we are both olive skinned and dark haired it's a constant struggle using temporary hair removal techniques. SmoothSkin Gold is an at home permanent hair removal tool, and provides a salon quality finish that you are able to do yourself, quickly and effectively.

The tool is electrical, and the ergonomic design feels sleek to hold, and is easily applied to the body. It's simple to get started as it is ready to use as soon as it's plugged in, then apply it to your skin by placing the skin tone sensors against the area you want to be treated, the power bar then illuminates to indicate your skin tone and customises the treatment setting so you're good to go! To treat the area you then press the activation button which will provide the treatment, it feels quite warm and can tingle slightly at first - however it isn't painful and after a few clicks you get used to it and feels normal. If it is a little uncomfortable there is a gentle mode.

SmoothSkin Gold can be applied to treat all areas of the face and body, apart from damaged skin, or super intimate areas. To get the best results, it is advised you repeat the treatment of the desire area once a week for 12 weeks to ensure all hair follicles are treated. After that to maintain the initial results it is recommended to use SmoothSkin Gold once a month, then after 6 months of treatment the course is complete resulting in hair free skin!

Priced at £299 SmoothSkin Gold is less expensive than going to a salon, especially as it can be used all over the body and face as required - it is widely available and can be bought via the SmoothSkin website or online from Boots. The tool contains 120,000 flashes which means the unit can be used by one person for up to 6 years, so is great value for money if you want to treat lots of areas!
Georgia and I have been experimenting with SmoothSkin Gold and will be updating our progress on the blog and via Twitter @Heidi_likes over the coming months. Upon the first treatment we can already see a difference, and have found it to be painless, quick and easy - we are both so excited to continue with the treatment, as we've already noticed less coarse hair growing back and also a slower growth. More updates to follow!

The Monday Piece - BPR SS15 Press Day

This week's Monday Piece is on the BPR Spring Summer 2015 press day! Last week i popped down to London town to see what new collections were being shown ready for next year. BPR look after lots of fashion and accessory brands based in the UK including Neon Rose, Red or Dead, Missguided, Forever Unique, and The Pretty Dress Company - as well as brands from overseas like Miss Patina that are becoming more popular over here due to a growing celebrity following! I was shown around by one of the lovely PR girls, there was so much to see - as expected for Spring/Summer there were lots of jazzy two piece sets, printed pieces, flowing fabrics and boho styles ideal for festivals and the warmer weather. All brands can be found via BPR social!

The Monday Piece - Hudson at Hengelo Boutique

This week's Monday Piece is on Hudson at Hengelo Boutique! I'm a big boot wearer all year round, especially during autumn/winter so couldn't wait to try out this Hudson pair from one of my favourite boutiques Hengelo. The boots are from the H by Hudson range, and are the Horrigan in beige - i'd say the colour was a mix of grey, light brown and beige, then they have the brown leather wrap around buckles. So they are mega neutral and versatile! The suede is great as they mould to the shape of your foot so quickly, they didn't take any wearing in which is always good, and are so comfy and classic. They also have a little heel and a feminine almond toe - i love these boooots! Hengelo have a fab collection of Hudson booties, all available to buy here, there's loads of styles and colours - they are such amazing quality too and the ideal slip on and go boot!
Also big thanks to my sister for snapping my outfit today whilst we were in town :)
