Christmas gifts for my Girlfriend

With less than 5 weeks until Christmas our staff share their Christmas wish list.

Hayley – Skin Therapist
ASAP Sunless self tanner is a hydrating self tanning lotion. It is enriched with natural extracts to make the skin feel silky smooth while providing a streak free and fast drying tan all year round. The skins elasticity is further advanced by the addition of Hyaluronic acid. Simply apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin, use sparingly around the dryer areas that contain more dead skin, such as knees and elbows. Reapply a few hours later or the next day for a darker deeper tan. This tan takes a few hours to develop, so wait to see if you are happy with the colour before you apply anymore product. To maintain your ASAP tan apply 1 to 3 times a week and allow to dry for several minutes before dressing. Also make sure you wear loose clothing for the next few hours. Ensure to wash your hands immediately after use to avoid discolouration. To further enhance your tan use ASAP revitalising body scrub and apply revitalising body moist to drier areas before applying ASAP self tanner, this will allow your tan to be more even and radiant. This personally is my favourite tan because it is never streaks, it always makes me look naturally sun kissed and my skin always looks and feels healthy and hydrated.

REDKEN- Color Extend Sun Range
This range is perfect for the summer ahead!
After-Sun shampoo is a fantastic product designed to help remove chlorine and salt from your hair that tends to build up over the summer season. It helps to repair sun damaged hair, leaving it feel revitalized and full of shine! No more dull and brittle hair for me this summer. Apply to wet hair, lather and rinse! Simple!
Shimmering defence – This is another product from this great range. This protective lotion also helps to protect the hair by providing a shield around the hair helping to prevent the drying effects of the sun, sea and swimming pool. If you love to be active in the water this is the product for you! Easy to use just apply to damp hair and comb through and leave it in!
After sun mask – This is an intensive mask designed for sun exposed hair lacking in shine and moisture. This mask helps detangle and revitalize damaged hair. Perfect for after I go swimming in the ocean, it makes my hair feel amazing!! The whole range smells like mango so it’s lovely and refreshing! Just apply to towel dried hair leave in for 5-15 mins then rinse! Definitely my picks for Christmas this year!!

Emma – Senior Hair Dresser
Dear Santa,
I’ve been a really good girl this year and think I should be rewarded. I’ve fallen in love and his name is Napoleon Perdis! With such a beautiful range of products, from Auto Pilot Primer to the amazing new look Loose Eye Dusts. I’ve  been having a play with colours to make my eyes pop and shimmers to give me a natural glow. A few things I would like are Infinity Pool which is a bright light blue, Place this on your mobile lid and then team it up with Purple Haze on the socket. Blending these two Colour Discs is the trick to a smokey yet bright eye. To play this look up even more, apply a little The Life Aquatic in the Loose Eye Dust Range. The new look Loose Eye Dusts will give your eyes a sexy shimmer without going too over board.
China Doll Eyeliner is a creamy textured liner with can be applied over top of shadow or underneath to really make your Mobile Lid colours stick. In keeping with my bright smokey eye, I add Teal in the China Doll with my soft sable eye brush 10b. To sharpen up the look I like to flick the liner at the outer couner of my eyes. I love colour on the cheeks and the Blush Patrol is an amazing mix of Golds , Pinks and Creams to highlight. I could wear this blush day or night. With all this colour happing I love a nude lip with plenty of gloss. De’Vine Goddess have a huge range of colours for the lips. Ive been using Nymphe as my base then applying Candy Apple in the Lip Lacquer range for that glossy youthful look.
