Two of my favourite brands hosted a fun evening for beauty writers like me to find out more about the brands, the range and products coming our way.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Ojon since it’s launch in the UK way back when, and it is my go-to brand for my everyday haircare. In fact, I think I’ve bought just about every product they produce, and certain items such as the original Restorative Hair Treatment and the Revitalising Moisture Mist are regular repurchases.
New to the range is the Damage Reverse collection. A shampoo, conditioner and a serum that can be used both on wet hair before styling and on dry hair as a finishing product are just what my hair is crying out for, especially after returning from the summer holiday with sun and chlorine damaged hair.
I love Ojon hairsprays, as I like the idea that while I’m ‘fixing’ my hair, I’m also doing it some good. Most hairsprays dry the hair out but not this one. A few shots of the Volume Advance Volumizing Styling Spray to the roots added volume and bounce that lasted all day.
My current saviour is the Super Spot Remover from Origins. I used to use quite a few Origins products but for some reason I’ve strayed away of late. This little gem, however, I could never be without again. As soon as you feel an eruption is threatening, just dab on a little over the spot at night and hey presto, by morning it will be on its way out! It’s actually a totally clear formulation, so it’s easy (and invisible) to wear in the day too.
My other new Origins fave is the Brighter By Nature exfoliating pads. While I love the relaxation of a proper exfoliating treatment, I don’t always have the time. These little babies do an amazing job at removing the top layer of dead skin cells and it’s as easy as wiping a cotton wool pad over your face. The impregnated pads coupled with their textured surface does an amazing job in seconds.
For those of us strapped for time, these are a godsend for regular exfoliation. I would use these twice a week, and save the full and complete exfoliation for lazy Sundays.
