Online Shopping with The Hut Group | Look Fantastic, Beauty Expert and HQ Hair...



Before I started beauty blogging, I never shopped online for beauty products, not because I didn't want to but because I wasn't aware of any websites that I knew were reliable. Fast forward nearly two years and I now actually buy most of my beauty products online with The Hut Group owning some of the biggest beauty havens out there! With websites such as Look Fantastic, HQ Hair and Beauty Expert under their belt, there is no wonder they are the 'UK's leading, multi-website online retailer with rapidly growing international operations.'

I was kindly sent a few products from The Hut Group a couple of weeks ago to try out and I couldn't have been happier with the products I received - Concealer and brush, nail polish, cuticle oil and a styling spray, the range of products shows just how varied the products are that the company sell...

Working in the nail industry means I am constantly working on other peoples nails but I very rarely get the chance to work on my own nails, they say you should 'practice what you preach' but do any of us really have the time?! So I was excited to see two nail products in my package that I can use at home!

Nailtiques Cuticle & Skin Gel*

Having problematic skin during winter means that my cuticles can become very dry and sore so this Nailtiques Cuticle & Skin Gel was a much needed product. Penetrating deep into the skin, this thick gel acts immediately and promotes the healing of cracked cuticles and rough skin. Perfect for keeping in your handbag, on your desk at work or beside your bed, maybe even all three, this is perfect for applying to cuticles, elbows, knees and any other dry patches of skin that need a little extra tlc! You only need a tiny bit of this gel for any one area as the product is so thick that a little goes a long way, I've had this on my desk at work all week and have been rubbing it into my cuticles, as well as the dry patches on my ankles and I have seen such a big difference already. They have both become so soft and I'm hoping that continuous use will eventually solve the problem, keep your fingers crossed for me!


Mavala Nail Colour in Velvet*

You all know that I just don't do nail polishes, I'm not a regular polish kind of girl, however, I am taking a break from Gelish at the moment, because I took them off at work and didn't get chance to put them back on, in the meantime my nails broke, split and cracked and by then it was just too late to apply Gelish without repairing them first. So this couldn't have come at a better time! I am using a nail strengthener on my nails daily and have been enjoying using this over the top to disguise the mess underneath. This polish applies so effortlessly, dries so quick and the colour is a gorgeous nude pink, perfect for everyday.

Redken Iron Shape 11*

Having thick hair that has a tendency to frizz and rarely holds a curl, this product immediately caught my eye! This thermal spray is very similar to a non-aerosol hairspray in that it's a liquid spray that gives hair a firm hold, whilst still leaving it soft and smooth. However this one has the added benefit of 'the exclusive Heat Guard Complex' which strengthens and protects the hair from heat styling tools too. I simply spray this onto dry hair one section at a time, prior to curling or straightening, I used this Saturday night and my curls were still in Monday evening when I washed them out, this is one product I will have to repurchase!

Amazing Cosmetics - Concealer* and Brush*

With waterproof technology and a highly pigmented formula, this concealer will help to achieve a perfected complexion. Dotted onto problem areas with this brush, which was specifically designed to work with the product, and then blended out for a natural looking finish, this works wonders for most skin problems, from blemishes to pigmentation. This is the only snippet of information I am going to leave you with on this post as this product deserves a post all to itself, coming soon...

There are so many amazing products online with The Hut Group, check out the websites I mentioned for yourself at www.lookfantastic.com www.hqhair.com and www.beautyexpert.co.uk
