TOYL JUNE 2021 - THE AWARDS BOX
IT’S AWARDS TIME!!
I am so thrilled to bring you this staggeringly lovely June box, packed with over £170.00 worth of beauty and a few fun freebies as well!
This box is like a smorgasboard, an all-you-can eat breakfast buffet or a party bag par excellence of products and brands that I think are amazing for women over 40, that work for us, that address areas that we are interested in and that have the values we have.
It’s not complete, I could only get so many lovely items in this box but test and try all of these beauties – there are new favourites waiting to be discovered!
1. WINNER - BEST RETAIL SKINCARE BRAND FOR WOMEN OVER 40
Product: Prep & Prime - 15ml / RRP £15.00
This brand totally gets women over 40. Rich, luxuriant and multi-tasking the products are built for us. Prep & Prime is a classic example as it moisturises, smoothes, primes and protects with an SPF30. The priming just simmers down those fine lines making this an incredible base for make up.
2. WINNER - BEST ORGANIC SKINCARE BRAND FOR WOMEN OVER 40
Jane Scrivner Skincare
Product: Overnight Recharge Balm - Luxe Sample
Jane is passionate about organic oils to create amazing skin. She buys the best oils she can but also supports local communities. If you want to soothe skin, create glowing skin, feed your skin then Overnight Recharge Balm is perfect for you. This is a ground-breaking organic brand.
3. WINNER - BEST PROFESSIONAL SKINCARE BRAND FOR WOMEN OVER 40
Product: Therapie Purete Milk Cleanser - 50ml / RRP £6.00
Gatineau is one of those French, heritage skincare brands that just keeps on delivering gentle products that are powerful enough to serve even the most demanding salon client. But they also understand that women over 40 want calming, soothing hydrating products to nourish and plump our skin. This cleanser is brilliant for mornings or as part of a double cleanse night programme.
4. WINNER - BEST BEAUTY INNOVATION FOR WOMEN OVER 40
Product: Sio Eye and Smile Lift - 1 x set / RRP £20.00
These had to be flown in from the USA for you, but once I’d seen them reviewed in the Daily Mail, I knew that you would love them! SiO recognises that a quick fix for lines and wrinkles is something that we all want and these WORK. Reusable, these patches are brilliant for anyone worried about fine lines around the eye or lip – I LOVE these!
5. WINNER - BEST BATH AND BODY RANGE FOR WOMEN OVER 40
Molton Brown: Pink Peppercorn Bath & Shower Gel - 100ml / RRP £10.00
This iconic British beauty staple is an absolute winner.
Thick luscious gels that can be used in the bath or shower, with amazing fragrances that turn those moments into spa treats!
6. WINNER - BEST TANNING RANGE FOR WOMEN OVER 40
Product: Click & Glow - 15ml / RRP £25.00
Midlife women are not going to sit with our faces in the sun (are we?), so this fantastic product can be added to your daily moisturiser, SPF or foundation to give skin a gradual colour. Not only that, it is packed with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C, perfect to plump and feed our skin. PS this is NOT an SPF!
7. WINNER - BEST FACE SUNCARE RANGE FOR WOMEN OVER 40
Product: Face, moisturising anti-ageing sun protection - 25ml / RRP £11.00
Abi Cleeve, the clever girl who created this, has understood that sunscreen for face is different for that used on the body. So, she’s packed this with ingredients to keep UVA/UVB off our faces, to protect our skin from blue light (computers, phones etc) but she’s also pushed in oodles of moisture so that fine lines are smoothed away while wearing. The ultimate in face sun care.
8. WINNER - BEST BEAUTY TOOLS FOR WOMEN OVER 40
Laruce Make Up Brushes
Products: Flat Blending Brush - RRP £20.50 Flat Shading Brush - RRP £21.50
Laruce is a luxury tool brand from the USA. Not available here these brushes are some of the very best on the market – vegan, hypoallergenic and cruelty free (so synthetic hairs). Use the Flat Shading Brush as part of the April eye routine, to swish a neutral powder along the upper lash line. Use the Flat Blending Brush for under eye concealer to blend, without pulling the skin around the delicate eye.
9. WINNER - BEST NAIL BRAND FOR WOMEN OVER 40
OPI Product: OPI Natural Nail Base Coat - 15ml / RRP £13.90
This product is essential for mani/pedi’s! Creating a protective layer on nails, this high-performance base coat prevents stains from darker shades and grips nail polish for a longer-lasting, chip resistant manicure.
10. BEST PACKAGING INNOVATION
Product: Dewy Glow Balm - 25ml / RRP £11.95
You’ve never heard of this have you? It’s unprepossessing, white, even (I’m sorry to say) a little dull on the outside but here’s the thing. Not only is the balm top quality packed with Vitamin E and Rice Bran Oil, but the packaging is made from more plastic reclaimed from the ocean than any other tube. James, the owner of Oryza not only formulated the balm, but the plastic case as well – he’s a very bright man and this is the most innovative packaging I’ve seen in a long time.
11. WINNER - BEST MAKE UP FOR WOMEN OVER 40
Product: FFL Forget Fake Lashes - RRP £18.00
Sarah and Emma Cross are sisters who created and run this incredible brand. Sarah started with the idea to create the ultimate of each product – one mascara, one lip liner/lipstick and in just one colour. It sounds crazy but she really has nailed it. In the box we have FFL, Forget Fake Lashes, an instant lash lengthening product. No need for extensions or fake lashes, this product lengthens and enhances all eye lashes effortlessly.
