Beauty News Flash: Gatineau is here!!!

Welcome to this evenings Beauty Flash News, with your host LizFish1!

Tonights main headline, and only headline, is the arrival of the GATINEAU Paris 4 Piece Age Benefit Youth and Beauty Collection on QVC.

Spa brand Gatineau is launching this weekend on QVC with an exciting beauty bonanza! The Gatineau 4 Piece Age Benefit Youth and Beauty Collection is featuring for the first time ever with their Luxurious Night Elixir in an amazing great value collection.

I just got my little furry mitts on Melatogenine Futur Plus Anti- Wrinkle Radiance Mask* earlier this week at the QVC SS14 event. Now this product is probably more suited to a mature skin, but I love it none the less! The Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen ingredients really help to bring a vitality and plumpness to my skin making me look well rested and baby smooth. I use it as an express- type treatment before heading out, just pop onto cleansed skin, including the eye contour for 10 mins and rinse! Et Voila! 

The luxury Gatineau 4 Piece Age Benefit Youth and Beauty Collection from the French skincare brand will appear in QVC’s Today’s Special Value where it will be available to purchase for around £65! The entire collection is regularly £263, which means a saving of almost £200. Don't you think this would be a perfect Christmas Gift for the lovely ladies in your life?! I think my mummy would LOVE it. :)

Knee Deep in the Deadlift.

New In: Reebok Knee Socks

So, I know I don't tend to chat much about my fitness life, but honestly it is HUGEly important to me.  I have a great passion for working out- its makes me feel strong, healthy and empowers me.

I have always been active- I went to stage school from the age of three and growing up I ventured into Karate, Swimming, Gymnastics, Cross Country, Athletics, Yoga- you name it I did it! 

But it wasn't until last year that I discovered Crossfit. When I first saw the Reebok commercials on UK tv, I said out loud to my Husband- "I wanna do THAT!". So we did :) We completed our fundamentals course at Crossfit Bold in Earlsfield and I have trained in a Crossfit way since then. My husband fell so in love with the sport that he is now a Crossfit Level 1 trainer and is the process of opening his own box. Awesome right?! 

Last week he visited the brand spanking new Reebok Fit Hub in Covent Garden and loved it.  He went along to chat to the Reebok team and I asked for him to fulfil one teeny tiny request. BUY ME 

Why you ask? because bruised shins are not sexy. 

Reebok Knee Sock RRP £8.00

Product Code: Z73705

Bad ass Unisex Knee Socks.
I love a good fitness purchase! Being a #fblogger means that my desire to look fierce in the gym is essential. And why the hell not?! Gone are the days where women would rock up to workout in their boys baggy tee and faded leggings. I want to feel good in my clobber, and more importantly it needs to be functional. Reebok Crossfit gear is just that- its designs move with your body and the fabric and colour choices allow to get a good bead on and still look good :) Its a win, win situash!

Shoes: Reebok Nano 2.0s, Socks: Reebok Knee Socks Z63764, Tanned and Tones Pins: Models Own. 

Reebok Knee Sock Delta Mono Sock Feapur/Cripur RRP £8.00
If you want to rock Reebok Knee Sock you can pick them up here. But might I recommend you pick up a girly shade? The hubs has already sported my black/ red ones :( 

Team them with your fave Nanos and then #getlifting :)

Nano Technology!

Hair care just got scientific!!! 

Let me introduce you to my new hair care regime :) I love my long, brunette locks- but the truth is sometimes it can look dry and a tad unruly. My prayers were answered when this landed on my door step. The Nanokeratin System* is amaze balls. It smoothes, without straightening ( I actually enjoy my little kinky waves) and manages to give my hair incredible shine without weighing it down. 

It gently cleanses my hair, without stripping it of its natural gloss and I think this has a lot to do with the omitting of SLS (sodium laurel sulphate- most common foaming agent in all cosmetics). I'm not gonna lie, its hard to feel well and truly squeaky clean when the foaming action is non existent, but it really does work. I think we all need learn that stripped faces, bodies and hair does not mean healthy.
