Hair there and everywhere

For good hair days on-the-go, grab a Batiste™ Dry Shampoo On The Go Original.

The cult classic dry shampoo not only gives locks a speedy refresh, but also adds volume when you feel a little flat.

Pretty much all the duties of a best friend, but for your hair!

Themed Thursday – A helping hand

The cold weather can lead to sore, chapped hands and that’s no fun at all. But help is at hand in the form of loads of fantastic – and usually affordable – hand creams. Get your pamper on!

elemis_sweet_orchid_h_n_creamFirst up is Elemis Sweet Orchid Hand and Nail Cream, a lightweight lotion that has a soothing floral scent, which makes it nice and calming to apply, particularly before bed. It leaves hands feeling soft and silky after just one application.

For an oil-based lotion that works well, go for Burt’s Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream. Although it takes a few seconds to absorb completely, this one’s brilliantly moisturising and leaves hands looking and feeling healthy. It’s also completely natural, which makes it ideal for sensitive skin.BB_AlMiHCr

And finally, for intense hand hydration pick Aveeno® Skin Relief Restore & Protect Hand Cream. aveeno_restore_protectApplying this twice a day will work wonders for banishing very dry, chapped skin. It feels instantly soothing when applied and is perfect for keeping in your handbag when you’re on the go.

Happy St. Andrew’s Day everyone, from Time To Talk Beauty HQ in Scotland.
