Best British beauty finds
In preparation for the Olympics, feature writer, Gemma, gets patriotic with her beauty finds.
So, hands up who’s excited about the upcoming Olympics? I must admit that I’m really not that bothered. Actually, I’ll re-phrase that – I wasn’t that bothered. Sure, I took the children to see the Olympic Torch as it came through little ol’ Swansea, and we enjoyed the whole procession, but with the media having been banging on about the Olympics for what seems like ages, I’ve sort of switched off from it.
However, with only 10 days to go until the big event and the many thousands of people coming from all over the world to our fair isle, I came over all patriotic. This is actually a huge thing for the whole of Britain to be involved in and proud of. So, with my regained enthusiasm for all things British, I give you the round-up of the best British beauty finds!
I have only recently found out about Steamcream. Their concept of using natural, fresh and traceable ingredients (not to mention the amazing packaging and glowing reviews) really appeals to me. It is definitely on my wish list.
Oh, and I’ve heard whispers that the Percy and Reed hair products are designed to give you a barnet even a British Princess would be proud of.
My wish list is getting longer by the minute…
