Reviews for Sebamed Hair Repair Conditioner 200ML
Award-winning hairstylist, Lindsey Olson. She has a few great answers to you inquiry regarding fantastic hair.
In Lindsey’s words…
The best product line for hair growth is Redken Extreme, specifically Extreme Lengths Primer and Sealer. Redken Extreme focuses on repairing hair through the science of protein and Redken’s exclusive Interlock Protein Network. The fortifying complex delivers the active ingredients deep inside the hair strand to work from the inside out.
The Extreme Lengths Primer and Sealer have a biotin enriched formula that creates a vertical binding system for proteins reducing breakage and split ends.
This system can help the hair grow three to six inches in a year.
It aids in adding strength from the root to the ends.
The first part is the Extreme Length Primer applied to towel dried hair, leave on for 2-5 minutes, and then rinse off. Second, use the Extreme Length Sealer on wet and dry hair to add strength, condition, and manageability.
Redken Genius Wash is also a go-to for helping hair grow and stay healthy..
It is a cleansing conditioner that keeps that natural oils locked in and promotes healthy hair. It will also aid in helping your hair color last longer. I recommend alternating between Redken Extreme shampoo and conditioner (including the Extreme Lengths System) and a Genius Wash. All of this combined will keep your hair in a ultimate healthy state and will help it grow!

Poo Poo to No Poo
“Washing your hair is singularly the best thing you can do for it,” according to trichologist, Tony Maleedy.
Washing your hair without using any type of shampoo has become something of a trend over the past few years but Tony Maleedy is urging people to rethink this unhealthy way of caring for their locks.
Advocates of No Poo claim it’s beneficial because:
There is no need for shampoo because the hair cleans itself.
You can clean hair with warm water or conditioner.
Shampoo strips the hair of all its natural oil and makes it dry.
Shampooing makes more hair fall out.
Shampoos contain harmful chemicals.
But Tony said: “It might sound like a natural, healthy way to care for hair, but this really is a very bad idea.
“If you don’t wash your hair, you are not washing your scalp either and this can cause big problems, including dandruff, sebohorric dermatitis and increased hair loss.
“The scalp is seven per cent of the total area of the skin – about the same as the arm below the elbow.
“Imagine not ever washing that!
“I have seen many thousands of people with hair and scalp problems, and in the vast majority of cases the disorders, particularly those of the scalp, have greatly improved as soon as the scalp is either washed more regularly, or better, more appropriate, products are used on it.”
No Poo claims and the reality:
Claim: There is no need for shampoo because the hair cleans itself.
Reality: Tony said: “Hair cannot clean itself.
“Sebum, the natural oil of the skin, travels along the hair shaft to have moisture retaining and protective effects on the hair.
“But this oil also allows debris such as dust and dead skin cells to adhere to the hair, making it dull and adding considerable weight, and in the case of fine hair, causing it to become limp.
“The only way to remove this debris properly is by using a shampoo.”
Claim: You can clean hair with warm water or conditioner.
Reality: Tony said: “If you ‘wash’ your hair with warm water or conditioner the bulk of the larger dirt particles are generally removed from the surface of the hair but sebum is not.
“This is because oil and water don’t, of course, mix so the oil continues to adhere to the surface of the hair and in a very short time more debris will stick to it.
“Conditioner can’t clean the hair as it does not have the ability to interact with oil and dirt as shampoo does, allowing them to be removed from the hair and scalp.”
Claim: Shampoo strips the hair of all its natural oil and makes it dry.
Reality: Tony said: “Sebum has an excellent effect on the condition of the hair, its ability to lock moisture into the hair is second to none.
“Having said that, it is a magnet for dust, dirt and debris, which will, over time, leave hair looking lacklustre and dull.
“Hair conditioners these days are so sophisticated and effective it is far better to wash your hair frequently and use a conditioner afterwards.
“Another important point is that some shampoos are very harsh, but these are the poorer quality ones.
“Good quality shampoos are designed to only remove excess oil from the hair and scalp leaving the intercellular oil within the scalp tissues and in the spaces between the hair cuticles.”
Claim: Shampooing makes more hair fall out.
Reality: Tony said: “This could not be more wrong.
“When you wash your hair of course you notice more hair falling out, but these are only hairs which are ready to come out anyway.
“Not washing your hair will not prevent this, indeed, leaving your hair unwashed is likely to result in a greater hair loss in time.”
Claim: Shampoos contain harmful chemicals.
Reality: Tony said: “The EU Cosmetic Directive regulations covering this are very strict, and no harmful chemicals are allowed to be used in any shampoo formulations.”
Tony added: “From a cosmetic point of view the use of shampoo to remove dirt and excess oil is very important as shampoos affect the hair in a number of ways.
“They give hair a more appealing feel and texture, improve its condition and usually leave it with a pleasant smell.
“In addition, by removing debris from the hair’s surface they allow light to be reflected more easily, so improving shine on the hair.
“Clean hair also shows in hair-on-hair interaction, the way hairs move and flow alongside neighbouring hairs – which is a major factor in the appearance and appeal of hair.”

Trichologist Jane Davies has 3 Top Tips for fantastic hair, plus one bonus tip for Rugby players in training
1: Wash your hair every day with a good shampoo
The number one thing anyone can do to improve the health and appearance of their hair is to wash it every day with a good quality shampoo. People wash their face every day because it gets grimy, sweaty and pores get clogged. The hair and skin on your head also need cleaning the same, so wash it every day.
A good quality shampoo is one that has good ingredients, not cheap ones. Ask your hairdresser to recommend one for your hair texture: fine, medium, coarse or Afro-Caribbean hair. Ignore products for ‘dry, oily or normal hair’. Those descriptions are not exact. And they tend to refer to your scalp, rather than hair condition.
2: Protect your hair from your lifestyle or the environment
Hair health can be affected by things like chlorine, sun light, overheating using styling tools, stress, alcohol, smoking and other external factors. Use products that protect your hair and scalp from damage through swimming, and sun bathing. Use styling tools at no more than 180degrees, chill out, get some sleep, and don’t burn the candle at both ends.
Hair growth cycles vary, but it can take 4 months of a new regime or behaviour to see the difference. There are no quick fixes.
3: Healthy hair needs a healthy nutritional foundation.
The body needs a well-balanced supply of macro and micro nutrients to promote healthy follicular growth. Diets low in protein, iron, calcium, Vitamins (A, C, E, D), zinc will usually have weaker hair growth.
It may be necessary to supplement your diet to compensate for the lack of nutrients. Blood tests and Hair Mineral Analysis can provide evidence of deficiencies. We recommend low dose cyclical therapy programmes cover long periods to rebalance the body’s ability to grow strong hair.
4: Bonus Tip – Choose Your Protein Shake Carefully.
If you are using protein shakes to help build muscle you may be surprised to learn that there could be a consequence to your hair health. If you want to remain fit and hairy, it is worth knowing that some protein shakes could be doing more harm than good. There are many additives found in protein shakes that could be accelerate hair loss. These additives can be inorganic growth hormones and creatine, which are intended to aid in the growth of muscle mass.
Consuming some protein shakes regularly may accelerate male–pattern hair loss. They mention that some of the additives in protein shakes are inorganic hormones such as Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), also known as androstenolone, and creatine. These additives are intended to promote the growth of muscle mass, by increasing the amount of ‘free’ testosterone in the body.
This increase in ‘free’ testosterone means that there is also an increase in DHT. In individuals that are predisposed to genetic male–pattern hair loss, the process could be accelerated.
It is really common for my male patients who present with male–pattern hair loss are regularly consuming protein shakes containing DHEA / Creatine.
For those who are looking to remain fit and hairy, we recommend that you seek alternative sources of protein. Replace these shakes with natural sources of protein such as chicken, eggs and fish.
How to switch your haircare to something more natural
We don’t just want to eat and live healthy, but we also want the same for our hair, and so it only makes sense that natural hair care is the new trend that we LOVE talking about! Natural hair products include the best that nature has to offer and will make your mane feel healthier and more manageable.
Natural hair care products will nourish your hair, are safer for your skin and are free from irritants and unhealthy synthetics. The longer you use them, the better the results – your hair may panic with the change but stick to it and your head will love you for it.
We’re always on the lookout for natural haircare products that work and are easy to use and give you the perfect look. If you’re wanting to mix up your haircare routine to a more natural solution, here’s how. After all, your hair is the crown you never take off, so invest in it!
It’s your time to shine!
Let your locks shine bright like a diamond! It might surprise you that the first step to achieving this, can be as easy as finding the perfect shampoo/conditioner combo. We know this seems basic but even just switching the everyday to a natural option will help your hair get used to less chemicals and parabens. Balance (shampoo) and Boost (conditioner) are a great start and you use them as per normal – so not much of a change in routine!
Balance is an apple cider vinegar, sulfate free shampoo that gently cleanses the hair and scalp. Organic apple cider vinegar naturally closes the hair cuticle for additional shine and organic argan oil and aloe vera help to further smooth and moisturize.
Boost is a natural conditioner that combines coconut oil, mango seed butter, rapeseed oil, rosehip oil, olive leaf extract, shea butter and hydrolyzed quinoa with the abundant benefits of apple cider vinegar to help nourish, detangle, smooth the hair cuticle and seal in moisture.
To the girls with curls
For the curly headed goddesses, we know how frustrating it can be to achieve the perfect curls! Remedy has got your back. This product will not only minimize frizz but also replace all of your heavy oil based products such as creams. Remedy is a leave in mist that detangles, reduces frizz, adds shine and balances pH of the hair with the help of organic apple cider vinegar. This product is an elixir for your hair that is chocked full of healthy ingredients that leave your hair feeling noticeably smoother. And this doesn’t mean that you have to pass on great fragrance for your hair because it is also full of scintillating essential oils.
P.S. if you have straight or wavy hair and you can’t seem to achieve the perfect natural/frizz free look, this product is also for you.
But how do we use it? To achieve smooth, frizz free hair, spray 1-2 times directly on your hair and style as normal. If you have curly hair, we recommend using your hands to scrunch the product throughout your hair. If you have straight or wavy hair, apply this product after you have brushed it and leave to work its magic.
We know how much you want that voluminous and texturized look. Dry Lift is a texture and volume paste that instantly adds both volume and texture to your hair. Kaolin clay and volcanic ash absorb excess oils, creating a thickening effect, adding body and allowing your hair to be styled and manipulated. But that’s not all! It also smells amazing because of an exclusive blend of rosemary, lemon, lime, geranium and lavender essential oils that provide natural fragrance and the benefits.
Here’s how the magic happens: To achieve the perfect combination of volume and texture, pop a small amount of Dry Lift texture and volume paste into your hand, gently run product through hair and style as normal.
Blow drying and heat styling your hair is one of the quickest ways to damage it. Here’s a secret that will make your life easier, save you time and your hair will love you for it. Rosehip Balm will make your hair feel instantly smoother and more manageable. Cold-pressed rosehip oil, rich in essential fatty acids, helps smooth, calm and seal the hair cuticle. AG Hair’s exclusive blend of essential oils provides natural fragrance and the benefits of aromatherapy and is ideal for medium to thick and/or colour-treated look.
So how does this miracle product work? Massage a small amount of Rosehip Balm into scalp and let your hair air dry. If you need to blow dry to add texture and shape your style then that’s ok – still use the Rosehip Balm prior to drying and it will create a heat protecting layer between your hair and the tool.
The entire AG Hair Natural collection is available exclusively in Price Attack stores and online. For more information visit http://www.priceattack.com.au/

Feel Free of Fuzz!
Silky, smooth and permanent hair-free skin is just a jar way this Christmas Party Season. Frenesies introduce the ultimate, pain-free cream treatment that prevents hair from growing.
(CURRENTLY 25% OFF ALL PRODUCTS)
Available from www.frenesies.com
The main component in Frénésies is the Brazil nut; the Brazil nut is rich in selenium. Selenium and other components of the formula penetrate into the hair follicle and block the action of proteins and amino acids, which are essential in the formation of hair. As a result, hair growth is reduced dramatically, and any remaining hair is much paler and weaker. Hair grows at different cycles and stages and the cream acts mostly during the telogen phase. Effectively, the end result of this is that there is a 75% reduction of hair from the 1st application.
Furthermore, significant research and development has been put into every ingredient and its’ dosage, as specific essential oils are needed to achieve the best results on each of the different areas of application. Frénésies is sold in three forms: Facial and Body creams for women, and a Men’s line.
The Facial cream was created with the purpose of enriching a women’s delicate facial skin. To accomplish this pure extracts of chamomile and lavender have been added to the creme to give it a smooth and silky feel. The Body cream was created with a formula containing Salix alba, which is also known as white willow. White willow gives a moisturising effect and it is also soothing and nutritious. The Men’s line, which has menthol, rosemary, and chamomile extracts in its formula, that help calm the skin, eliminate the redness resulting of the epilation treatment, and provide a feeling of freshness.
Frénésies significantly reduces and weakens facial and body hair and provides a moisturising effect. Frénésies also acts as a soothing and anti-inflammatory agent on the skin for the purpose of treating post-epilation discomfort.
The components not only reduce unwanted hair growth, but also have moisturising effect, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, to help the skin after epilation procedure.”
Frenesies Facial and Frenesies Body, respectively £195 and £220 – Based on brazil nuts, rich in selenium, both these treatments are a game changer! You won’t need all those expensive salon treatments anymore thanks to the latest technology used by Frenesies products.
Frenesies Men £220 – Specifically designed for men’s hair, this formula is rich in menthol, rosemary and chamomile, which help calm the skin, eliminate the redness of the post waxing treatment and give the feeling of freshness. After only one treatment hair will be reduced by 60-80% depending on the type of hair.

PANTENE PRO-V AIR-LIGHT FOAM CONDITIONER REVOLUTIONISES HAIRCARE FOR FINE HAIRED WOMEN. FINALLY, FINE HAIRED WOMEN CAN ACHIEVE
100% CONDITIONING WITH 0% WEIGHT
Pantene, the world’s #1 haircare brand, revolutionises conditioning with its air-light in-shower Foam conditioner, specifically designed for women with fine hair. Available nationwide, the new foam conditioner is finally the answer women with fine hair – often frustrated by the weight of ordinary conditioners – have been waiting for. Its air-light foam texture is absorbed deep into the hair and moisturises it from the inside out, without leaving any unwanted residue that could weigh fine hair down.
Today, women with fine hair too often deprive their hair of the conditioning it needs by using too little conditioner, using conditioner infrequently, over-rinsing or simply skipping conditioner altogether. This means that hair is deprived of the positive benefits of conditioning, which includes detangling, nourishment and damage protection.
what it is
“THIS FORMULA ALLOWS WOMEN TO FEEL CONFIDENT IN USING CONDITIONER AGAIN BY TRANSFORMING FINE, DAMAGED HAIR INTO HEALTHY-LOOKING AND FREE-FLOWING LOCKS. WITH THE AIR-LIGHT FOAM TEXTURE, WOMEN ARE NOURISHING HAIR, PREVENTING IT FROM WEIGH-DOWN AND PROTECTING IT FROM DAMAGE WHILE STILL BEING ABLE TO ACHIEVE THE STYLES THEY WANT. IT’S WHAT WOMEN WITH FINE HAIR HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.”
DR. Jeni Thomas, Pantene Principle Scientist’
how it works
The product’s conditioning ingredients are injected with bubble-forming ingredients that blend to create the perfect formula. Once the lightweight, airy foam mixture is exposed to air, the bubbles expand to suspend the conditioning ingredients so that they absorb quickly and easily nourish hair.
1/ Apply a palm-size amount of foam after shampooing, with every wash.
These bubbles are finely-engineered to resist bursting until the moment is right, as bursting too soon leaves hair with uneven coverage and bursting too late leaves hair undernourished.
2/ The foam immediately absorbs deep into the hair.
As the product is rinsed, hair will feel clean and conditioned – without the weight or greasiness heavy conditioners can deposit on fine hair.
3/ Rinse, dry and style your hair as usual – enjoy the lightness.
While other conditioners may add excess weight to the surface.
THE AIR-LIGHT FOAM IMMEDIATELY ABSORBS DEEP INTO THE HAIR AND MOISTURISES FROM THE INSIDE OUT.

• The “miraculous” product, which repairs up to three months of hair damage in just three minutes*, is set to take the UK by storm!
Thanks to Pantene – the world’s #1 hair care brand – the “miracle” conditioner that has transformed the hair of over 25 million women worldwide is making its way to the UK. Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle has the power of a deep treatment in the form of a daily conditioner, repairing the look of up to three months of damage in just three minutes* and leaving hair free flowing, bouncy and looking full of life.
Formulated using our latest conditioning technology, this intense daily conditioner includes the antioxidant histidine to reduce oxidative stress while the formula with lipids nourishes and strengthens the hair’s core and spreads evenly along the fibre. The targeted treatment can read and respond to different levels of damage, focusing on areas that need repair while any excess rinses away without residue or weigh-down. Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle also features up to 2x more conditioning ingredients than regular Pantene conditioners, providing superior hair smoothness and shine, while helping prevent split ends and frizz.
Pantene Principal Scientist, Dr. Jeni Thomas, explains how the technology in Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle is able to transform hair:
“Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle works with Smart Technology which spreads evenly along the hair fibre, quickly releasing microrigid actives, which identify areas in need of repair. Our new ingredient, histidine, then penetrates the hair fibre, reducing oxidizing minerals and helping hair stay strong from the inside. The result is soft and shiny hair without the ‘weighed down’ feeling.”
PANTENE PRO-V 3 MINUTE MIRACLE
is available nationwide in four variants to target all your hair needs; Repair & Protect, Smooth & Sleek, Volume & Body, and Colour Protect, RRP £2.99**.

PANTENE BEAUTY HERO MICELLAR FOR YOUR HAIR
DEEP CLEANING WITHOUT STRIPPING IS ACHIEVABLE
Originally designed to help women combat harsh Parisian water, micellar water is now used to cleanse skin of heavier concentrations of toxins, as a result of rising levels of pollution.
Hair faces these very same challenges. Today, with its special blend of Pro-V
“Unlike harsh cleansers that can leave hair feeling stripped, Pantene Pro-V Micellar Cleanse & Nourish has a 3-factor design for gentle purification. Firstly, large micelles work on the surface without disrupting the hair’s fibre, secondly the formula has a more neutral PH, so is gentler on hair. Finally, Pantene’s antioxidant nutrients reduce minerals that pose risk to hair’s health”.
Principal Scientist for Pantene, Dr. Jeni Thomas PhD
antioxidants and Micellar Complex, Pantene Pro-V Micellar Cleanse & Nourish is the perfect way to combat the issues that daily life throws at your hair such as street fumes, chemical contaminants, and heat pollution, to name but a few.
Compared to skin, hair is more exposed to pollution because of its larger surface area and is less equipped to defend itself from impurities. This is because it has no active defensive mechanisms that can utilise some of the substances transferred by pollution; due to this, it’s important to deeply clean hair but not strip it in the process. The added weight from metals, minerals and particles found in air pollution add weight to every strand, which increases roughness and can lead to further damage such as split ends, dull hair, and breakage.
Unlike traditional deep cleaning shampoos, the Pantene Pro-V Micellar Cleanse & Nourish Shampoo formula is a special blend of Pro-V nutrients and Micellar Complex that lifts and captures impurities from the surface of the hair whilst maintaining the essential nutrients it needs – so hair is left clean and strong.
When creating Micellar Cleanse & Nourish, Pantene scientists faced the challenge of creating a product to remove styling residue, excess oils and unwanted minerals without over-cleansing and lifting nutrients that the hair actually needs.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND MICELLAR FOR YOUR HAIR
PANTENE brings one of skincare’s hottest trends, MICELLAR WATER to hair – and in doing so, is re-defining what clean means for hair.
A PANTENE HAIRLIFE SCIENCES study in nine major cities globally found that hair takes on impurities from the air, (minerals, metals and particulates), that make it “gain weight” and become rougher. Hair can also absorb minerals from wash water that can make it appear rough and dull.
THE CITY WHERE HAIR TOOK ON THE MOST METALS
CALCIUM MAGNESIUM IRIN ALUMINIUM
Most common Metals Found On Hair
PANTENE’s NEW PRO-V MICELLAR CLEANSE & NOURISH HAIRCARE RANGE has been designed by PANTENE scientists to provide a superior yet gentler clean versus harsh traditional deep cleansers
This is achieved via a unique 3 factor design:
1 BIG IS BEST…MICELLE SIZE
Micelles are large water-activated cleansing complexes that target the hair fibre’s surface where they absorb the excess dirt, residue and particles that clings to hair. Pantene’s micelles are huge – they’re too large to penetrate beyond the fibre surface, which prevents them from disrupting the hair’s internal nutrient structure
2 TARGETED CLEANSING
PANTENE’s nutrient-rich micelles contain anti-oxidants that selectively reduce impurities hair does not need, whilst leaving hair full of the essential nutrients it does need, so hair is left clean and strong… not stripped.
3 GENTLER PH
A more neutral PH provides a gentler clean vs. other deep cleansing shampoos.
Now women can treat their hair with the same level of care as they treat their skin. Just as women have daily skincare rituals; women can now follow this ideal for their hair thanks to Pantene Pro-V Micellar Cleanse & Nourish.
New Pantene Pro-V Micellar Cleanse & Nourish Collection is available nationwide from May 2017.

Results of Study Demonstrate Benefits of Swapping Showerheads To Haircare Routine. www.methven.com
In a bid to find the ‘Perfect Rinse’, global shower brand Methven has revealed the results of a new study investigating the benefits of swapping showerheads to improve hair care – 80% of participants said that swapping their showerhead rinsed their hair quicker.
Furthermore, results from the four-week focus group study in the UK showed that three-quarters (73%) of those who took part in the product trial believed their hair looked healthier and shinier.
Methven conducted research into the public’s hair washing routine with particular focus on how a showerhead can make the hair rinsing process quicker, easier, more enjoyable and most importantly, more efficient.
A focus group panel* swapped their existing showerhead and road-tested its most awarded product, the Aurajet® Aio. Not only does the shower handset boast a unique halo-shaped design, it also contains innovative technology creating a distinctive fan like spray pattern, providing a greater spray force and double the water coverage in comparison to conventional showerheads.
Participants attended an initial focus group prior to testing the product. A series of questions were asked to determine factors such as; buying habits, brand loyalty, personal and brand image and attitudes towards haircare. Questions included: “What’s the average length of time it takes to wash your hair?”, “How much do you spend on haircare a month?” and “How important is it to you that your hair looks good?”
The research revealed that, although the majority of participants spent between £50-£100 every month on haircare, none of the panel had considered changing or upgrading their showerhead in a bid to improving their haircare results.
Participants spent four weeks putting the product to the test and the headline, post-trial results from the group were as follows:
· 93% of participants stated they would choose the Aurajet® Aio over their previous handset
· 87% of participants would recommend Methven to a friend
· 80% claimed that the showerhead rinsed their hair quicker in comparison to their previous handset
· 73% believed that their hair looked healthier and shinier due to the Aurajet® Aio showerhead
· 60% agreed that the handset was an investment for long-term hair healthiness
The overwhelming majority stated that they would favour the handset over their previous showerhead and agreed the product rinsed their hair more effectively. One participant said: “It definitely took half of the time to rinse my hair… it’s the Dyson of showerheads!” while another claimed “I’ve used less conditioner because I’ve found that my hair is in better condition since using the showerhead.”
Clare Ward, spokesperson, at Methven UK, said: “We spend a lot of time studying and researching what people want from their shower. We commissioned this study in a bid to improve our understanding of haircare routines as we strive to find the perfect rinse.
“There’s one striking finding from the study, and that is while average spend on haircare products is high – between £50 and £100 every month when cleaning, conditioning, colouring and styling is taken into consideration – not one participant had previously considered making a small investment in a new shower head to enhance their haircare results.
“Yet the results of such an upgrade are clear with three-quarters saying that by using our Aurajet® Aio showerhead improved the look of their hair compared to their existing shower.
“Consumers understand the benefits of a good-quality straightener and hairdryer but it seems there is some work still to be done in conveying the benefits of a new showerhead in achieving the perfect rinse.”

Prevasore. Everyday Lip Therapy. So helpful at staying healthy whilst on your summer holidays. www.prevasore.co.uk
Available NOW Priced at £6.95 with free 1st Class delivery Available exclusively at Prevasore.co.uk Prevents and treats sore, cracked lips Helps heal cold sores and prevent their recurrence
Whether we are lounging on the beach or dancing the day away at a festival, our favourite summer activities bring the threat of dry, chapped lips and, for some, cold sores. Exposure to things such as direct sunlight, salty, windy conditions on the beach, water sports, UV rays and the recycled air on plane journeys can all lead to dry lips. This damage, combined with lack of sleep and dehydration can weaken the integrity of our lips, making us more susceptible to the cold sore virus. Cute and compact, Prevasore is a hand-luggage essential this summer and the perfect to your pocket if you’re heading to a festival or on holiday. Applying the Prevasore gel formula regularly will help to create a hydrating barrier on the lips to increase moisture and help aid healing.
The HSV-1 virus is one of the most common human viral infections, and research shows that as many as 45% of the population is reported to suffer from recurrent cold sores* which can last two weeks; long enough to threaten your social plans and work commitments.
In a study of 54 volunteers (male and female, aged 18-70 years) who suffer from dry or cracked lips, Prevasore was applied multiple times a day for 5 days.
Here are the findings after 5 days: 81% increase in lip hydration 93% reduction in lip dryness 98% reduction in lip cracking
Prevasore’s unique formulation is designed to encourage healthy lips using emollient and moisture preserving ingredients, in a pale green gel base, that forms an effective barrier when it comes into contact with the lips. The blend of protective ingredients rebalances the moisture levels within the skin, restoring softness, suppleness and encourages healing when lips are chapped and sore. By forming a barrier, Prevasore increases the amount of moisture retained in the lips and protects against harsh environments.
*Embil JA et al. CMA Journal 1975; 113: 627-630.
“Ever since using Prevasore my lips have never felt so soft and it has completely stopped cold sores. Even when I can feel a tingle of one coming on I pop a bit of Prevasore on my lips straight away and the tingle goes and no cold sore appears! It’s literally like magic. I will continue to use Prevasore and even my sister and work colleagues now use it. Thank you again!” Sam, London
“My son is 28 years old and suffers with cold sores every time the weather gets very hot or very cold. Since using Prevasore everyday he has not had a cold sore (fingers crossed!)” Judy, Surrey
“I have always suffered with my lips. I have tried everything but Prevasore is the only thing that works. It reduces the swelling very quickly and then the blisters aren’t so aggressive. Thank you very much; I’m a very happy customer.” Naomi, Nottinghamshire
“I really like Prevasore. I suffer from dry lips rather than cold sores, but I use Prevasore daily and it keeps my lips nice and soft.” Hayley, Cheshire
“Prevasore is the best lip therapy I have used. It has even passed the ‘Swiss Alps’ test. Despite the dry air there, I do not suffer from very dry, sore lips now. Just at night, in the morning and perhaps the occasional use during the day is all I need.” John, Surrey

Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen released from trees and plants, and common symptoms include sneezing, runny nose and red itchy eyes. Although usually worse around freshly cut grass and during warm weather, this troublesome condition is not limited to fleeting summer days and can occur at any time when pollen levels are high – and in practice that means any time between spring and late autumn. Eyelergy not only helps to offer relief and protection from pollen but also from other airborne allergens commonly found in the home such as pet dander and dust mites. This versatile allergy protection helps to relieve eyes from irritation all year round.
Eyelergy eye drops are specially designed to combat the symptoms of hay fever eyes and eye irritation such as dry eye or irritation caused by dust and other airborne pollutants. The drops’ protective barrier gel technology rinses and shields the eyes from allergens and irritants such as pollen, mould, dust mites, pet dander, dust and airborne pollutants. Available in packs of 20 handy-sized single-dose droppers, Eyelergy eye drops are perfect for use on the go whenever required. What’s more, because each single-use dropper is sterile, the drops contain no preservative and so can also be used by contact lens wearers.
Why are our eyes particularly vulnerable to the effects of pollen? Unlike the nose and lungs, the eyes have no filtration devices (e.g. cilia or mucus) for expelling allergens. The main defence mechanism in the eye is the tear film, which provides a barrier function and dilutes and rinses away foreign bodies reaching the eye. Normally this rinsing process goes unnoticed. The problem with pollen and other allergens is that they cause an immune reaction which can disrupt the protective tear film. This then allows foreign bodies to reach the eyelid lining, causing even more irritation, thus leading to a spiralling vicious circle and over-production of tears. Eventually the eyes stream profusely with watery tears that afford little protection.
How does the gel barrier technology protect the eyes/does the gel barrier technology prevent irritants reaching the eye directly? Eyelergy’s gel formulation is activated by our normal blinking mechanism, and creates a protecting, lubricating and hydrating film over the surface of the eye. By blinking, the protective and lubricating effect of Eyelergy is maintained between applications by re-spreading the drops over the eye surface. This barrier works to stabilise the tear film, helping to restore the barrier and rinsing actions necessary to keep irritants and allergens out of harm’s way.
Why do eye drop formulas with preservatives lead to further irritation in contact lens wearers? Preservatives are essential in multidose formulas to prevent microbial contamination and spoilage of the drops once opened. Because Eyelergy is specially presented in sterile, single-dose droppers, this is not an issue and therefore the formula is preservative-free. This is important because preservatives too have the potential to cause eye irritation and sensitisation. Further, when used with contact lenses, these ingredients can accumulate in/under the lens, causing even more problems and sometimes even tissue damage. This explains why eye products containing preservatives are not recommended for long term use, or for use with contact lenses.
Is Eyelergy only suitable for those suffering from hay fever? Eyelergy is suitable for people suffering with hayfever eyes, allergy eyes of any type and with dry eye symptoms. Foreign bodies such as dust, pet dander, mould spores and pollen can all cause allergic irritation in the eye, and Eyelergy can provide effective relief from any of these. Eyelergy also helps to relieve dry eyes. Although the symptoms may not be the same for everyone, typically these include a sensation of having something in the eye and possibly some discomfort, itching, redness or inflammation. Paradoxically, dry eye sometimes involves excessively watery tears.
Who can use Eyelergy? Eyelergy is suitable for use by children from 6 years of age, adults, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. Contact lens wearers can also use Eyelergy because it is preservative-free.
How regularly can Eyelergy be used? Eyelergy can be used as frequently as needed, whether for the relief of hayfever/allergy eyes or for dry eyes. Often this is around 3 or 4 times a day. It is advisable to consult a doctor, optician or pharmacist if symptoms continue for a long period of time or worsen

100% natural plant ‘slime’ lubricant helps prevent dry ‘winter vagina’
A former NHS midwife and senior clinical nurse at the London Bridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Clinic told newspapers this week that many women could find intercourse unbearably painful over the winter months if they experience vaginal dryness
‘Dry autumn and winter air depletes moisture from our bodies, leaving our skin dehydrated and cracked. And while it’s an issue few will want to discuss openly, our vaginas can enter “drought mode” during this time, too,’ claims midwife Mary Burke.
In2mate is a NEW intimate skincare range made in the UK that contains almost 100% unique natural ingredients designed specifically for use on vaginal skin for improved lubrication and moisturisation as well as helping to repair and rejuvenate intimate skin.
All skin loses moisture in winter, but in particular the thinner intimate skin loses moisture quickly, especially for women in middle age when female sex hormones begin to deplete in the run up to the menopause.
In2mate Natural Lubricant contains Levan, a natural plant fructose that protects plants against damage from frost and drought by locking in moisture via the formation of a natural micro film over the plant’s surface.
Used on the skin it does the same thing, helping lock in moisture and giving skin a smoother more slippery feel.
With dryness comes abrasion and damage to the vaginal skin’s natural skin barrier function.
Once the skin barrier is damaged, bacteria and fungus can enter easily into the vaginal skin causing infections and itching.
In2mate Natural Lubricant contains a patented probiotic Biolin ®, proven to help increase the good flora in the vagina which helps repair and strengthen skin barrier function.
In2mate Natural Lubricant also contain Jujube extract. a natural wound healing tonic for helping to repair and strengthen damaged dry skin.
Intimate skin is affected by age like any other area of skin on the body.
Intimate skin receives a high level of wear and tear so it’s even more important to preserve skin in this delicate area.
The key to preserving skin and keeping it younger and more flexible is antioxidants.
In2mate Natural Lubricant is one of the first lubricants to contain a patented antioxidant PROTEOLEA® which has been proven to help rejuvenate and repair vaginal skin by slowing down age-related oxidised cellular waste degradation by optimising cellular recycling. This process helps improve flexibility and moisturisation in vaginal skin.
The right pH?
In2mate Natural Lubricant keep vaginal at a pH of 4.5 or below. Normal skin is not as acidic as the vagina. Any product whether it’s a moisturiser, lubricant or wash will also be in contact with skin near the vagina. So In2mate have struck a healthy balance between the skin around the vagina and the tissue within. 4.5 is the perfect pH ‘balance’ because it’s not too high for the vagina and not too low for the skin.
The In2Mate Natural Lubricant is over 99% natural is a natural-feeling non-perfumed repairing lubricant.

In2mate – NEW naturally rejuvenating intimate skincare range
In2mate is a NEW intimate skincare range made in the UK that contains almost 100% natural ingredients to help rejuvenate vaginal skin. Key ingredients also help repair, detoxify and lubricate vaginal skin.
Vaginal skin is affected by age like any other area of skin on the body.
Vaginal skin receives a high level of wear and tear due to sex, childbirth, tampons etc so it’s even more important to preserve skin in this delicate area.
The key to preserving skin and keeping it younger and more flexible is antioxidants.
In2mate products are one of the first intimate skincare products to contain a patented antioxidant PROTEOLEA® which has been proven to help rejuvenate delicate areas of skin by slowing down age-related oxidised cellular waste degradation by optimising cellular recycling. This process helps improve flexibility and moisturisation for a more radiant appearance and healthier feel.
Healthy bacterial balance in the vagina is crucial for maintaining good vaginal health. The humid and airless environment of the vagina combined with sexual activity, makes for an ideal place for the breeding of bad bacteria and fungus.
In2mate skincare contains a patented probiotic Biolin®, proven to help increase the good flora in the vagina while inhibiting the growth of bad vaginal bacteria that can lead to bacterial vaginitis, thrush and other bacterial infections and imbalances.
Biolin® also repairs and strengthens vaginal skin damaged by age-related thinning, chafing and abrasions.
In2mate products also contain Jujube extract, a natural wound healing tonic for helping to repair and strengthen damaged skin.
The vagina is particularly vulnerable to bad bacteria and so extra defences against toxic build up help protect the vagina from infections.
In2mate products contain Oleuropein, a mild and natural anti-bacterial and detoxifying plant polyphenol derived from olive trees that is suitable for vaginal skin. It helps shield against the build-up of bad bacteria and also detoxifies vaginal skin leaving it cleaner and purer.
All skin loses moisture with age, but in particular the thin vaginal skin begins to lose moisture when female sex hormones begin to deplete in the run up to the menopause.
In2mate products contain Levan, a natural plant fructose that protects plants against damage from frost and drought by locking in moisture via the formation of a natural micro film over the plant’s surface.

The In2Mate skincare range is over 99% natural and includes a gentle, non-perfumed intimate wash, a light non-sticky non-perfumed intimate moisturiser and a natural-feeling non-perfumed rejuvenating lubricant.
