Posts in Teddy Charles

It is June and that means winter has officially arrived for the southern hemisphere, and summer for the northern. As I am sure you can guess, that means lots and lots of new products going on sale across the globe. Here are my favourites this month.  Continue Reading

The Sunsilk Co-Creations brand is continuing to grow and their latest addition release comes from parisian ‘style & length expert’, Teddy Charles. This new range, however, is no Teddy’s first with Sunsilk. In fact, he has previously released two other collections, ‘Plumped Up Volume’ in the green packaging, and ‘Longer and Stronger’ in black packaging. Now Teddy has come out with Frizz and Weather Defence, and I have to say that out of the 3, this one sounds just right for me.

I have fine hair. A lot of it, but it is fine. My hair is completely subject to weather conditions, and it doesn’t take much to turn it frizzy and limp. Living in Sydney means I get to experience multiple climates each week (sometimes even in the one day!), so it would be great to prevent that change before it happens. Let’s see how they went!

Frizz & Weather Defence Shampoo and Conditioner

Easily the first thing I noticed about these are the scent, which is slightly bubblegum-esque. It is a bit sweet but not overwhelming and once you rinse your hair out it is pretty much gone. I love that my hair doesn’t feel dried out after using the shampoo (even with two washes, which is unnecessary unless you have been rolling around in mud) and the conditioner makes my hair easy to comb almost instantly. Afterwards, when my hair is dry, there is a slightly noticeable reduction in frizz.

One thing that annoys me to no end is the packaging of the conditioner. Yes, it looks sleek, but because of the weird shape on the top it can’t be stood with the lid up (and no, it can’t lean against anything either because the bottle is too curved). You may be thinking that is such a lame annoyance, but I have to share my one shower with two other humans and 6 dogs. We don’t have any shelves/racks in the shower so everything has to be placed on the floor. One of those humans is male and works with greasy cars in a warehouse all day, so you can imagine how filthy he is. The last thing I want to think about is all that filth pooling in water around my beauty products, seeping in through the lid and eventually ending up being put in my hair (and don’t think it doesn’t happen, because it does, but I didn’t want to scar you by taking photos). Ye, not a good picture!

If you are blessed to have your own shower, or maybe even a shelf/rack to put your products on, than these products are superb.

The curved top of the conditioner causes me nightmares

Deciem NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum

Have you noticed there’s been a bit of chatter about copper peptides in skincare lately? The biggest player on the scene right now is NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum (CAIS), and it has people swearing that this is a liquid version of the second coming.

Unfortunately when an ingredient becomes trendy we see the market flooded with products claiming to be using the best of it. Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they? I’ve chatted with Deciem’s co-CEO, Nicola Kilner, to get the lowdown on copper peptides and how you can make sure you buy a product that works.  Continue Reading
