Hollywood Browzer

Final Blog Audrey.jpg

We love nothing more than to have immaculately groomed eyebrows at The Amazing Blog, but upkeep of a well-defined looking brow is often both expensive and time-consuming. Finding the time to visit a salon, growing out brows in-between appointments or doing a costly waxing and threading is not ideal; so we were keen to explore alternative options. This is where Hollywood Browzer comes into play, a painless, quick and easy hair removal method that can be used to shape eyebrows, and so much more.

The concept of Hollywood Browzer is a simple one: to provide effective hair removal on dry skin, ensuring easy hair removal even for those with sensitive skin. To use this product, it's crucial to hold the Hollywood Browzer at a 45-degree angle, using short and gentle strokes against taut skin. This takes a little practice, but we're now dab hands in the office! We found the Hollywood Browzer is best used for shaping eyebrows. However, it is equally effective at removing peach fuzz, upper lip hair and chin hair. It is also gentle enough to be used on the bikini line and gives the same grow back rate as tweezing, threading and waxing. Gone are the days of worrying about thicker hair regrowth. We like how transportable this product is. It’s easy to take away with you and safe to store thanks to the foldable element (keeping the blade secure).

Our favourite part, however, is its longevity. We found our blade lasted over three months - we imagine helped massively by wiping it after each use, and storing it correctly. At just £7.95 for one, the price it is a fraction of the cost of professional hair removal - replacing after 2-3 months is much less of a tug at the purse strings. If you too would like to try this painless hair removal method, then you can purchase the Hollywood Browzer Single in Classic Black here. Alternatively, there are a range of colours available here, as well as duo packs to make your money stretch a little further.

Brow Fibre Extend by Eye of Horus

It’s no big secret that The Amazing Blog is a huge fan of strong brows, so if you combine that with our favourite Australian make-up brand, Eye of Horus, get ready for an effusive post. We have, for a long time now, been in love with Eye of Horus. Not only are their cosmetics fabulous and long-lasting, but they are cruelty-free, vegan-approved, paraben free and rich in precious oils and waxes.  There is a reason that this brand continues to pick up award after award, most recently winning Best Mascara and Best Eyeliner at the 2017 Beauty Shortlist Awards, and it’s because of the quality of their ingredients. Their new Brow Fibre Extend collection continues to incorporate ancient ingredients to deliver the highest quality products possible to make you feel like a real goddess. The Brow Fibre Extend is the first of a few exciting products that Eye of Horus is releasing over the next few months, so watch this space!

The Brow Fibre Extend creates fuller, thicker and more volumised brows. With a buildable formula, the product lengthens and thickens eyebrows and fills any patches or imperfections effortlessly, creating a natural but defined look. This new, waterproof range is available in three shades; Dark (Nile), Medium (Dynasty) and Light (Husk).  Mineral pigments are used to give a subtle and natural colour to the products. The long-wearing formula contains two types of seaweed (Canaliculate Extract and Laminaria Digitata) as well as Moringa Oil, which assist in brow hair growth and health. The micro applicator allows for both a delicate feathered look and a bold, impactful look. 

The Brow Fibre Extend is a great day-to-day product that instantly adds definition and volume in one smooth stroke, making it perfect for the girl on the go. You can buy your very own Brow Fibre Extend for £19 from My Beauty World here, so go and become the goddess you were born to be.

PureLash Lash Extender & Conditioner - Jane Iredale

Full and long lashes are our favourite accessory here at The Amazing Blog, whether you're foregoing makeup or glamming up. We especially love when our lashes are lengthened and strengthened and making  our much more mascara long-lasting. That’s why we were delighted when Jane Iredale sent us their Purelash Lash Extender & Conditioner.

This multi-purpose product is the perfect way to achieve thick, long and strong lashes. It can be used as a mascara primer, adding measurable thickness and length to the lashes when used under your favourite mascara and helping the mascara to last-longer. Not only are you left with fluttery and flirty lashes, but it also allows you to use less of your mascara, therefore helping your purchase last longer. The second purpose is perhaps our favourite; apply the product to clean lashes before bed for an overnight lash treatment. The Aloe Extract and Vitamin B Complex Factor moisturises the lashes, helping them to grow stronger and healthier. Hydrolysed Wheat Protein aids in thicker growth and with the added bonus of curlier lashes. You can even use this product to condition your eyebrows if you're coveting some bushier brows.

The majority of mascaras slow the growth of the hair follices along your eyelid. This results in scarce lashes that struggle to grow, and is why the Purelash Lash Extender & Conditioner is such a beneficial product. What's more, the product is cruelty-free so as your lashes grow, your guilt won't!  If you're still somehow not convinced, think about it this way, you wouldn't skip the conditioner in your hair-wash routine, so why skip it on your eyelashes?

Purchase the Pure Lash Extender and Conditioner here for £16.00.

Lilibeth - Brow Shaper

Today I thought I'd share one of my special beauty secrets. Given that I try many different product in my world, but there are always a few that surprise even me and even manage to sneak in and become my new beauty essential. And not just me, here at The Amazing Blog, we always find one or two that just take our breath away... Whether it helps us feel better, look better or simply make life a little easier, we’re always compelled to share with you our dear followers. Lilibeth of New York   is our latest 'must have' product. We love their wonderful eyebrow shaper in fact, one of us already used it but happened to mention it to the rest of us and so as you can imagine, the rest of us just HAD to try it! The simplicity, versatility and painlessness of this product is what impressed us the most.

The Lilibeth Brow Shaper is an easy-to-use, stainless steel blade incorporated in a comb, that allows you to shape, trim and tame unruly hairs. This is ideal for maintenance of eyebrows between plucking, waxing or threading; but it can also be used virtually anywhere you have any unwanted hair. In my case, I have very fine long brow hairs that at times are tricky to get at with tweezers and need trimming down and the shaper manages to gently trim every last one of them! And if you are lucky enough to have full and luscious eyebrows like our lovely Lara, the shaper will easily take care of those pesky hairs too. The comb/blade is also designed to be precise and safe so you won’t need creams or even water to use it but be reassured it won’t give you those knicks and cuts around those sensitive areas.

I would also like to mention that this is a particularly useful tool for helping your men stay clean-cut and fluff-free in between haircuts or to get rid of those wild hairs on the nape of the neck, sideburns or beards. This product stores away safely since it folds up and can be stored anywhere. It is recommended that the comb/blade is replaced every two or three months depending on how often you use it. These brow shapers are available in black or pink, and can be found here for the affordable price of £6.95. Why not invest in this simple, yet effective, multipurpose beauty tool that will have you saving some money as well as leaving you looking gorgeous!
