Over the last few weeks I have been making a conscious effort to eat better and to cut back on the old sugary treats. In fact, I have to say that I have being doing pretty well so far as I have being eating good during the week and then allowing myself something extra special of a weekend. I will admit to being the sort of person that will give in and eat all the rubbish if I deny myself that piece of chocolate for too long. Today my post ties in nicely with my attempt at looking after myself better as whilst sat planning a couple of blog posts on Saturday afternoon I received a surprised package from the team at Debenhams as part of their #DetoxwithDebs campaign.
Inside was the Breville Blend-Active Blender*, which having never used one of these before I was super excited to give it a whirl. If you have any recipes of your favourite smoothies or healthy drinks then please do let me know. Seeing as though I had a few things knocking about in the fridge I did have a go at making my own shake, I used milk, strawberries and bananas and it wasn’t too bad at all. This product did a fantastic job of blending the fruit and it was lovely and smooth, for the price of just £30 I actually think it is a fantastic buy.
There were of course some delightful beauty treats sent out too which were focused upon the detox theme. The Nails Inc Overnight Detox Mask* and the Nails Inc Nail Growth Treatment* are both welcome additions as you all know the issues I face when it comes to growing my nails. These are actually pretty unusual compared to most Nails Inc polishes as they have a doe foot applicator, where you are promoted to rub the product into the nail bed as opposed to brushing it on. Over the next few weeks I will be giving these a road test because if anybody needs help with their nails then it is me.
The last product comes from Trilogy which is brand that I have very little experience of. The Trilogy Age-Proof CoQ10 Booster Oil* is one of the new products from the newly reformulated Age-Proof range. The combination of four plant oils known as Glycablend, which consists of pomegranate oil, chia seed oil, strawberry seed oil and blueberry seed oil helps to slow down the naturally occurring process of glycation. This is one of the key causes of ageing as it causes collagen and fibres to lose their elasticity. At the moment I am currently trying out a different product which this would replace in my routine if I were to start using it now, therefore I will come back to this in a couple of months. Nevertheless, reading up on this has me very intrigued about this product.
How did your new start go in January?
