Budget Buy : £1 alternative to Tangleteezer & Wet Brush


Every beauty blogger seems to love Tangleteezer. Perhaps my hair is quite thick, I found the teeth of Tangleteezer too short. They just glide on the surface, do not detangle my hair at all. I then tried the Wet Brush, which Anna said it is better than Tangleteezer. The teeth of the Wet Brush are definitely longer, but they are too soft. When I apply a little pressure when brushing (like you do), the teeth just bent, so again the brush doesn't brush through my hair.

Luckily, I accidentally discovered an alternative in Primark!


It's a brush by Opia. The teeth have solved both problems of Tangleteezer & Wet Brush! They are long enough to sink into my thick hair, firm enough to go through my hair yet soft enough to take out the locks gently.

It can be used on dry hair too! It does a great job to smooth out my crazy hair in the morning.

The even better part? It is only £1!!! It comes in pink (and black) too!! It is also a good slim size brush to throw into handbags.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
