Pre-children I had a fairly healthy bank balance and used to spend a hefty part of it on the latest beauty & hair products. As soon as I read about a new ‘miracle’ hair creme that promised to control my unruly curly hair, I’d buy it but inevitably it would join the other dozen or so mousses, serums and sprays that had failed to live up to expectations on my ‘shelf of shame’.
Then along came my children and no longer could I justify spending £50 on a tiny pot of ‘miracle’ moisturiser or £30 on a frizz-control creme. However, I’m still a
gullible sucker for a new product and when I read on various forums about ‘Dermaflannels’, I surrendered and ordered one from Bravuralondon.com.
When it arrived, I have to admit that I did wonder if spending £11 on what looked like a piece of thick kitchen roll might have been yet another semi-expensive beauty mistake but this time, my money was well spent.
God only knows what the Dermaflannel is made of and it may look innocent enough but after using it a couple of times I swear my skin looked better than it had for years and it has been very effective on those annoying little pimples that spring up on the back of your arms during the winter.
Bravura’s website says: The Dermaflannel is a beauty breakthrough for anyone who likes the idea of a chemical peel….this easy to use, reusable and chemical free way of achieving deeper exfoliation has a unique weave that sweeps away dead skin cells to reveal soft, glowing skin on the face or the body.”
I also bought the glycolic acid 15% night treatment too, which stings like an absolute devil when you apply it
so it must work but I mixed it with my trusty Nivea so it was more bearable.
So all in all, I was pretty pleased with my latest beauty purchase but be warned, it does make your skin a little red afterwards so for goodness sake don’t use it before a big night out or if you’ve got an important event the next day – just in case.
Verdict: won’t be joining the ‘shelf of shame’ so it must be good!
