What we learned during lockdown

With lockdown measures due to ease next month, and the re-opening of beauty salons across the UK set to take place on April 12th, the team behind Roccabox, the monthly beauty subscription box, has been reflecting on the beauty lessons it has learned during lockdown, and which of these will last. As Tia Roqaa, CEO and Founder of Roccabox, explains "What lockdown has done is given us a completely new relationship with beauty. No longer a tool for vanity (seeing as we aren't seeing anyone) we've discovered the intrinsic element of self-care in beauty, we've uncovered a new unprecedented level of interest in skincare (and that's saying something!) and we've learned to live without all the regular beauty treatments we took for granted pre-Covid."

How the pandemic changed the way we do our make-up

It's safe to say no area of life has escaped the clutches of the Covid pandemic - not even our make-up bags. Life as we knew it has changed in so many ways we've lost count, but did you know that the way we do our make-up and which products we choose has changed as a direct result of living through this pandemic? Certain make-up products have become one of the more unexpected casualties of lockdown life and actually many of this year's beauty trends have been born as a result of the way our lives have changed.

All you need is silk

You may have heard, read about and maybe even seen for yourself the wonders of silk for skin and hair. But did you know that results are maximised and hair can become visibly thicker if you wrap it in silk overnight? Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase is terribly damaging for hair due to the friction caused by tossing and turning and the absorption of oils from the hair. This creates the tangled 'bed head' look in the morning and leads to weak hair, breakage and poor regrowth. Wrapping hair in silk all night prevents this completely.

Lush has launched Confetti perfume!

An exclusive fragrance for spring which was first seen as part of the Lush's Florence collection, this infatuating floral fragrance was invented by Lush perfumer, Emma Dick and will be the fragrance she wears at her wedding this year.Emma began her Lush journey 21 years ago and is one of a close-knit family of perfumers for Lush. Emma's initial workings for this perfume were based on rose, violet, coffee and pear as a combination. When Lush co-founder Rowena smelt the perfume, she thought it smelt of sugared almonds (a pastel-coloured candy almond usually found as a gift on the table at British Weddings). In Italy they have the same tradition for celebratory events and the sugar almonds are known as Confetti - which was a perfect fit. This romantic scent is also featured in Lush's Renaissance Spa treatment and Renaissance Discovery Kit.
