Thyme Out

The Furore Surrounding Thyme Out – by Catherine Robinson

 

  • There is always that moment on holiday where one of my children appears at my sun lounger bursting with cartoon tears with a cut, itchy bite, rash or worse, and I panic and think ‘crikey, did I pack Eurax, Calamine Lotion, E45, Sudocream, anti histamine on top of the eight million other medicines?’ Of course, it’s always the cream I left at home, so, off to the hotel doctor we go. The furore surrounding Thyme Out started with a few whispers, a couple of Instagram posts, and then, boom, it’s a race to buy it before it sells out. Thyme Out is an organic, all natural tincture infused with antiseptic Thyme and calming aloe vera that treats so many different skin ailments, you will have to bear with me while I list them: acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, cold sores, itchy inflamed skin, cuts, grazes, prickly heat and pet rashes. It smells a bit like pizza but don’t let that put you off because it has the healing powers of the God Apollo. In fact, on my next holiday, I might just pack this and my bikini and be done with it. The 200ml bottle comes with a travel friendly 7 ml refillable bottle to be spritzed in times of crisis but don’t forget about it when you are back at home. It’s amazing at clearing teenage spots and most recently calmed and cleared a horrid skin rash caught from a plant after I was dragged into a bush by my new puppy. Thyme Out

EyeCandy Volume HairBrush

  • Rainbow Volume S Brush

    EyeCandy Volume HairBrush

    There’s been a bit of a buzz about EyeCandy’s Rainbow Volume Brush in the beauty world of late.

    Already huge in Korea (home of genuine beauty junkies and a ton of weird a wonderful products), the mad-looking rainbow-coloured brush claims to give your hair “maximum volume and fullness” with its wiggly ‘S’ shaped bristles, designed to create air pockets in hair that deliver just-out-of-the-salon volume with your normal brushing technique.

    Much like another cult hero – the Tangle Teezer – the handy little tool slips through tresses, detangling them with ease, keeps them glossy and groomed with nominal effort and helps inflates locks without having to rely on mousse or hairspray, all for the bargainous price of £12. Not bad for a quick sweep of a hairbrush…

  • Ameliorate Skin Smoothing Body Lotion

    The Chicken Skin Cure

    Summer can be a real skin struggle for the 40 per cent of Brits suffering from keratosis pilaris, a hereditary condition where excess keratin (a fibrous protein) blocks the hair follicles, leaving you with red pimples on your arms and legs. But for the first time, lactic acid – a highly effective skin exfoliant – has been added to a body-care product. Ameliorate Body Lotion, £27.50, promises sufferers smoother and softer skin.

The Headache Reliever

The Headache Reliever

  • aculief

    Aculief, £19.95 is a simple, but effective, acupressure devices that slides over the web of skin between our thumb and forefinger, and presses the ‘Li 4′ acupressure point, which is linked to discomfort in the large intestine and also headaches. I rarely get headaches (when I do, I drink a glass of water first, as most commonly it’s a sign of mild dehydration), but my husband, who’s rather prone, played guinea pig. Within five minutes, he felt better – the paracetamol went back in the cupboard, while the clip has become a fixture.
