Your West Midlands Wedding- December 2021/January 2022 (Issue 77)

THE EYES HAVE IT They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so they’re for sure a feature to make the most of on the big day. For those looking for longer lashes and full brows, The B Collection has launched its Lash & Brow Serum (£8.99). This all-natural, vegan, cruelty-free product nourishes and stimulates growth in these two key areas for eyes that’ll pop as you say “I do.” Use every night before bed following your usual skincare routine and wash off in the morning – super-easy. You can also use it during the day to set your brows in place. We love anything with a dual purpose! Find it at KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON At times life can leave us all busy, stressed and unable to switch off, which is where the new 5 Minute Acupressure Foot Mat from 100 per cent natural aromatherapy lifestyle brand Scentered can help. Our feet have 26 bones, 100 ligaments, 20 muscles and a very complex network of nerves and blood supply. But they’re often overlooked, despite being the powerhouse of wellbeing for our bodies. So, this innovative offering can help you to relax, release tension and bring calm to your day through it’s five-minute therapeutic experience. Equally, if you often find yourself in need of a morning boost, it can be used alongside a supportive aromatherapy balm, allowing you to unblock trapped energy. Priced at £35 the set is lightweight, washable, portable and super-easy to store. It also comes complete with a choice of one of Scentered’s best-selling aromatherapy blends. Find it at READY OR KNOT The Detangling Mist is the newest product in The Hair Boss’ award-winning range. The brand, founded by Lisa Shepherd, former British Hairdresser of the Year, simplifies hair care into a four-step routine, and this newbie fits tidily into part three. With life getting busier by the second, this is the quick, on-the-go answer to dry, unruly hair. Targeted to fix frizzy and damaged locks, it’s designed to smooth and strengthen, while protecting your hair and preventing breakage. Lisa says, “In between washes, The Detangling Mist will soften the hair, taming any unruly knots and re-adding the shine that it’s lost since the last wash.” Priced at £8.99, it’s available at EDITOR LOVES In my humble opinion Kristin Ess The One Signature Shampoo and The One Signature Conditioner are nothing short of miraculous! I won’t lie, my hair was in an embarrassing state when I decided to give these a go. I’d been swimming three days on the bounce – down water slides, through rapids, the works! My locks were a huge matted, straw-like mess. But with just one application the shampoo lathered like a dream and after leaving the conditioner in for the recommended three minutes, even wet my hair started to feel less knotty. I usually dread having to drag the brush through my hair after I’ve washed it, but in no time flat it was knot-free, smooth and ready to dry. Shiny, soft and looking their best, the state of my locks pre-Kristin Ess were a distant memory. This is definitely my new favourite hair routine and at £8 each they won’t break the bank. My advice? Head over to and pop them in your basket immediately! SUPER SKIN Skin Republic has launched an exciting range of new 30ml serums hailed as a more sustainable way to mask.

Each one has been scientifically formulated to target three primary skin concerns: dryness, pigmentation and ageing. Priced at £14.99 each, they’re available at NATURE’S HARVEST When Estée Lauder created Youth-Dew bath oil in 1953, she revolutionised the fragrance industry and 75 years later, the brand is carrying on her legacy with the introduction of a new luxury fragrance collection.
