Usually about 4-5 months after giving birth I hit that horrible hair stage. I often joke ‘If only I lost the baby weight as quickly as my hair’ but it really isn’t a laughing matter. All that lovely thick pregnancy hair is falling out rapidly and I am left with dry, unruly hair that is impossible to brush. Most days I go for the messy bun escape but if I can find the time I prefer to fight the frizz with my Remington hair straightener, just whizz through and it instantly becomes easier to work with.

Remington Straightener

The limited edition Remington Shine Revival Straightener (RRP $49.95) combines smooth, shine and chic in one gorgeous pack that’s perfectly timed (and priced) for Mother’s Day in just a few weeks.

If you are dreaming of luscious locks, smooth strands and gorgeous gloss the new Shine Revival technology is just what you need. This limited edition straightener features floating ceramic plates (110mm) that are infused with Moroccan Argan Oil to condition your hair and add up to 86% more shine, who doesn’t like the sound of that?

Remington Pouch BrushBusy mums will love the fact that it heats up in just 15 seconds and you don’t need to wait until your hair is completely dry, the straightener can be used on both wet and dry hair. Special steam hydration vents steam out water from damp hair, locking in moisture whilst straightening and drying it at the same time. To complete the gift pack a matching heat resistant storage pouch and vent brush are included so you can keep all your styling essentials neatly together for storage or transport.

Remington’s Shine Revival straightener also offers variable heat settings (140°C – 230°C) to cater for all different hair types, an easy-to-read digital display, salon swivel cord for free movement, automatic safety shutoff and worldwide voltage, allowing you to enjoy your favourite styler at home and on holiday all over the globe.

Remington Shine Revival

As always Remington puts their money where their mouth is by offering a generous 2 year product warranty.

Now that we have four daughters many people comment on the fact that I will be spending a lot of time doing little girls’ hair. Plaits, buns and pig tails, clips, bows and headbands, it will be like having our very own hair salon at home. Of course I do have two boys too (hubby and master 7) but their hairdos are easy as pie, just a quick trim with this new Remington gadget and they’re sorted for another few weeks:

Remington Rapid Cut Hair Clipper

Shaped like an oversized computer mouse the brand new Remington Rapid Cut Hair Clipper (RRP $99.95) is compact, powerful and super practical, home haircuts have never been easier!

Remington Rapid CutGone are the days of being glued to a chair, limited by a messy, tangled cord, while mum slowly tries to create a decent do with rusty clippers. The showerproof Rapid Cut can be used completely cordless so you have all the freedom to move this speedy clipper around at any angle, you can even use it in the shower or walk around if you’re the on-the-go type. The durable lithium powered battery lasts up to 40 minutes and, using the included power adaptor, can be fully recharged in 4 hours.

Rapid Cut Ergonomic ShapeThe Rapid Cut Hair Clipper has only just hit the shelves and it’s already selling like hot cakes, we are not surprised. It is so easy and comfortable to hold making it very easy to stay on track when cutting, even when trimming the tiniest details. As most hair trimmers can be a bit tricky to use on an angle I usually have to trim hip daddy’s hair to make sure he doesn’t miss any sneaky spots at the back, however the compact size and slightly curved, ergonomic shape of the Rapid Cut have solved that issue so he can confidently do his own DIY all-over haircuts.

The Remington Rapid Cut Hair Clipper comes complete with nine different combs (for hair lengths between 1.5 and 15mm) for a millimetre precise cut that suits your taste perfectly. The blades are self-sharpening and can easily be washed and cleaned so your new clippers are always ready to deliver barber-sharp results. To save on cleaning time the Rapid Cut features a special ‘Wash-Out’ technology that flushes hair from inside out, that way you are not left with lots of tiny hairs stuck inside your clipper. The few hairs left behind can just be brushed out with the little cleaning brush.

Rapid Cut Blades

Of course this new Remington best-seller comes with complimentary peace of mind in the shape of a generous 2 year product warranty.

Welcome Baby Giveaway – Day 9

If you thought the uncomfortable nights and many toilet breaks during pregnancy were though, you’re in for a whole new level of exhaustion when baby finally arrives. Of course your precious bundle is totally worth it but all these broken nights are bound to take a toll on your skin. Thankfully Remington is here to help freshen up tired mamas with this quick and effective pick-me-up:

Remington Revitalise

The new Revitalise Facial Cleansing Brush (RRP $99.95) offers a luxurious facial cleaning experience that is not only more relaxing than manual cleaning but 10x more effective too. The best part is: You can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home, every single day!

RevitaliseThe cordless, handheld Revitalise brush is fitted with a rotating and vibrating brush head that thoroughly cleans your pores and leaves skin feeling healthy and glowing naturally. For a pleasant and personal experience the Revitalise Facial Cleansing Brush has three different speed settings and comes with a normal brush, sensitive brush and a special massage attachment to really wake up dull and tired skin.

While you can use the Revitalise Facial Cleansing Brush with nothing but simple tap water I personally prefer adding a tiny squeeze of a good natural facial cleaner. The lovely perfume and soft lather it creates really add to the experience and will leave you with that spoilt salon feel. Simply rinse your skin and the brush with water after, easy as pie.

Remington Revitalise Facial Cleansing BrushOf course it is no secret that time is precious so you’ll be pleased to know that your daily cleanse takes just 1 minute of your time. You can even conveniently use the Revitalise brush in the shower or bath so it slots right into your everyday routine. To help sleep-deprived mums stay on track the brush automatically turns off after one minute and  gentle reminds you every 20 seconds to move onto the next facial area.

Awesome feature: One full charge on the charging station will last up to 30 uses, that pretty much means you only have to charge the Revitalise once a month to enjoy a cleanse every day.

To keep your Revitalise brush safe and clean when not in use a cute white glossy storage bag is included, very handy for at home and on holiday. It’s plenty big enough for the brush, charger, accessories and even a small bottle of your favourite facial cleansing product.

As always Remington offers fantastic peace of mind with a generous 2 year product warranty.

A few weeks ago Hip Daddy turned 34 and even though we didn’t celebrate big, with just our 4 kids (and a baby bump) it’s already quite the party. Early on in our marriage we started a small tradition where every child gets something to give to daddy, little did I know at the time that we would go on to have a larger than average family. Four kids later it is getting rather tricky to find enough good presents to give but I am glad to say I succeeded again with this Remington gift being a big hit:

Remington SmartEdge XF8550AU

I admit a shaver is more of a practical present than a luxury treat but you have no doubt read last week that he got a bit of both so no complaints there. Because hubby religiously shaves every morning before going to work I knew a new shaver would be well received, he enjoys the easy shave and I enjoy the smooth skin, double win!

SmartEdge Foil ShaverWhen you take a close look at the Remington SmartEdge Advanced Foil Shaver (RRP $199.95) you’ll notice the foil shaver has a unique multi-directional hole pattern, about time someone realised not all hairs grown neatly in the same direction! By catching hairs from all angles you need fewer moves to achieve a close shave all-over so it’s quicker and more effective.

Remington SmartEdgeThe cordless design is perfect for busy dads on the go who try to do a million things at the same time, hip daddy is quite the expert at it. If you’re a really keen multi-tasker you can even use your 100% waterproof SmartEdge shaver in the shower and rinse under the tap, so convenient! The shaver can be used dry, with shaving foam or with gel, whichever you feel is most gentle on your skin. Hubby prefers gel in the shower to reduce redness but in the mornings it’s often a dry shave to save time.

The powerful lithium battery has a generous 50 minute runtime (that’s a lot of beard to shave), if needed you can do a super speedy 5 minute quick charge or complete a full charge in 120 minutes. I love the handy charging lights indicating how much battery you have left, that way you’ll never run out of battery unexpectedly.

Could your hubby do with a nice new shaver too? Stay tuned, in the lead up to Father’s Day we’ll give you the chance to win a Remington SmartEdge Advanced Foil Shaver for the special man in your life. 

As always Remington offers fantastic peace of mind with a generous 2 year product warranty, as well as a 60 day money back guarantee.

Christmas Countdown – Day 15

Now I know the kids usually get to unwrap the majority of gifts under the tree but (grand) parents deserve to be spoilt too. We have picked our top gift ideas for mums and dads from our wonderful friends at Remington and we even get to spoil one lucky lady with a fantastic prize pack too:

The awesome Blow Dry In A Box (RRP $69.95) contains all you need to create the ultimate salon style blow-dry in the comfort of your own home (and without breaking the bank!).

Remington Blow Dry in a Box

The powerful (yet ultra silent) Remington Salon Professional Hair Dryer (2300 watt) offers 3 different heat settings and 2 speed settings as well as a cool shot so can you can tailor your blow-dry to suit your hair perfectly. The innovative conditioning ionic technology will leave you hair soft and well conditioned whilst the tourmaline ceramic technology replaces unwanted frizz by a smooth and shiny finish. Also included are blow-dry must haves likes a handy radial brush and two section clips.

Remington Osmo PackTo achieve that magazine worthy blow-dry your hair needs to be healthy and well looked after which is why Remington’s Blow Dry In A Box contains a great selection of hair care products too. You can count on the popular Osmo trio Osmo Berber Oil Shampoo Rejuvenating Cleaner (50ml), Osmo Berber Oil Mask Restoration Therapy (50ml) and Osmo Wonder 10 (25ml) to get your hair in tip top shape and blow-dry ready.

Movember is done and dusted so it’s time to get rid of that prickly mo with the new Remington HyperFlex Golfer Pack (RRP $199.99). Hip daddy received the lithium powered HyperFlex Shaver as an early Christmas present (I couldn’t stand the stubble any longer!) a few weeks ago and he is very pleased with its smooth shaving results, I am too which is just as important.

Remington Hyperflex Golfer Pack

Featuring a multi-directional pivoting neck the shaver head moves freely to adjust to your neck, chin and jawline and the ActiveContour shaving heads adjust automatically to the contours of your face to deliver a nice clean cut from any angle. Some hairs may be longer and others shorter but the Precision Ultra cutters cut both long and short hairs in fewer strokes, add to that the Stainless Steel Twin Track Blades which offer 50% more shaving coverage and you can see why the HyperFlex reduces your shaving time, leaving dad with more time to do the things he likes.

Whether you like to shave wet or dry, with shaving cream, shaving gel or without, at home, in the shower like my hubby or in the car, the Remington HyperFlex Rotary Shaver fits into your lifestyle and your schedule perfectly.

Remington i-Light Pro Face & Body

 Mum  Comments Off on Remington i-Light Pro Face & Body
Oct 262014
 

Remington i-Light Pro

As much as I am excited about all the lovely summer dresses, pretty singlets and strappy sandals, I can’t say I am looking forward to all the necessary hair removal that comes with it. With one sunny day after another there is no ‘I’ll leave it for a few days’ option, you have to stay on top of it all the time. Like many other women I dream of permanent hair reduction from the beauty therapist (and sparkly white teeth from the dentist) but the hefty price tag has been holding me back, if you share my dream you’ll be pleased to know that you can achieve the same smooth results at home with Remington:

Remington i-Light Pro Face & Body (RRP $799.95) is a revolutionary light-based device designed that allows you to remove unwanted body hair in the privacy and comfort home of your own home. No matter how hairy you are, this clever product has got you covered (or should I say uncovered?). The Remington i-Light Pro system uses the same similar Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology that professional dermatologists use so you can enjoy similar professional-quality results without having to visit your beauty salon.

Remington i-Light ProYou can use the Remington i-Light Pro Face & Body on almost any area of your body with unwanted body hair: legs, (under) arms, bikini, back/chest and even your face (females only). Unlike most many at-home hair removal methods, the i-Light Pro IPL system doesn’t cut or pull out hair, instead it offers long-lasting results by working below the skin’s surface to disable active hairs and help prevent new ones from growing. Hairs that do grow back will be finer and lighter in colour.

While the Remington i-Light Pro Face & Body works for most people you will only achieve the desired results if your hair and skin colour are suitable, the quick Safe Integrated Skin Sensor makes sure the device is used on appropriate and safe hair and skin colours only.

Remington i-Light Pro Hand DeviceThe Remington i-Light Pro system consists of a handheld device, to direct Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) at the area of your choice, and a base that cradles the hand device when not in use. As the system uses mains power there are no lengthy recharges or batteries to be replaced, just plug it in and go. The included quartz bulb has a very generous flash life of 65,000 flashes and it retains the same intensity for the entire bulb life, once used up the flash bulb can be replaced.

Remington’s i-Light Pro system delivers clinically proven, permanent results in just three fast treatments, by leaving two weeks in between sessions you make sure all hairs in all different stages of their growth cycle have been treated. Treated hairs will fall out in a few weeks and results last six months, that’s the entire Spring/Summer season taken care of!

Remington is 100% convinced you will love the results of the Remington i-Light Pro Face & Body which is why they back it up with a hard-to-beat 90 day money back guarantee and a fantastic 2 year warranty.

Over the next 6 weeks I will be testing the Remington i-Light Pro and getting myself Summer ready, results should be visible after a few short weeks so I will be sure to report my findings. Stay tuned…
