Philips EasyShine Ionic Styling Brush + Giveaway

Happy Wednesday! Oh my goodness, it’s November already and soo close to Christmas. You’re in for a treat today, if you or a friend/family friend has frizzy hair then this is the post for you!! Plus, there’s a sneaky giveaway at the end of this post.

Today I’ll be reviewing the new Philips EasyShine Ionic Styling Brush. This brush is designed to de-frizz and smooth out the hair. So if you have the troubled frizziness then you’ve got to try this brush out. When I was researching on this brush, I found that it’s super popular in Asia and there’s a couple of more designs compared with what was released in the Australian market.

Static electricity exists everywhere especially in dry environment. That’s why your hair gets frizzy and messy easily. To help you get rid of this annoying issue, we bring easier solution: ionic styling brush. The ionizer generates negative ions to neutralize positive charge of static electricity. It helps to reduce frizz and bring back smoothness and shine to your hair instantly.

Let me describe my hair to you. My hair is straight and thin. There’s been a few occasion when I go to the hairdresser and they ask me if I have permanently straightened my hair and I say no. They give me a confused look, especially after washing my hair, it’s dead straight. The only time my hair frizzes up is when I roll around too much in bed and the following morning my ends are frizzy.

The most effective way to use this brush is when hair is a little damp and brush through from the roots to tips. So essentially, I use this brush the following morning and not after I’ve washed my hair. I would wet my hair and then brush through my hair especially at the ends.

The Ionic magic is activated by flicking the switch on the right of the brush, the Ionic icon will illuminate and that’s when you know you have some Ionic action happening.

The bristle cushion has just enough pressure so that it provides even distribution around the head. The brush is not waterproof so please don’t bring it into the shower. The brush bristles can be easily removed and washed by pressing the button under the bristles.

Being clumsy and uncoordinated, I would have preferred if the brush had a handle because I’m really prone to dropping things. However since I’ve been using it for 3 weeks or so, I haven’t actually dropped it yet and it does fit quite well in my hand.

The brush is operated with 1 AAA battery which is included in the box so it can be used straight from purchase.

This RRP for this brush is $39.95, it’s reasonably priced so great as a Christmas present.

In collaboration with Philips & Beauty and Things, we will be giving away one Philips EasyShine Ionic Styling Brush.

How to use?
I usually use my angle or powder brush and swirl it around the pan to pick up all four colours. Then apply it around my face for the glowly look.

Why it’s fab?

  • Blends easily – Using my Sigma angle brush, it blended so beautifully on my cheeks and around the face.
  • Great pigmentation – This highlighter has good pigmentation, a few strokes on the cheeks is all you need and you’ll see the “glowiness”
  • Multi purpose product – I’ve used this product as a blush, highlighter and eyeshadow. All work amazingly well.
  • Texture – The powder is very fine and super creamy. When I swirl my brushes around the pan, there is no fall out.
  • Travel friendly –  The packaging comes in a plastic square compact case with a mirror on the inside. It’s very compact so it’s perfect for travelling or in your everyday makeup bag.

Additional info:

  • Made in Italy
  • Price: $60 AUD for 0.21 oz / 6.0g
  • Dermatologically and allergy tested
  • Available at Adore Beauty

Guys if you are looking for the dewy summer look, this product is for you. It gives your face that healthy glow and I’ve been getting some compliments at work on how healthy my skin is looking. You can use the colours separately or blend them all together. It works beautifully as a highlighter or a blush. I have pretty dry skin and this has not settled on my dry flakey spots so a winner for me!

Surprising Beauty Facts

Happy Monday everyone!!

Rebateszone recently published an infographic on some random beauty facts and interestingly enough 1 in 3 women refuse to leave the house without makeup. I don’t know about you but I don’t have any problem leaving the house with a nakey face. Usually if I wear minimal makeup to work, people just assume I’m tired.

Anyway if you wanted to have a read, I’ve linked the infographics below.
