Welcome back to another weekly round up!
This week got off to a flying start as CATRICE picked up a fabulous feature in The Guardian. Beauty Editor Sali Hughes included the Lip Cushion Protecting Lip Balm in her pick of the best affordable beauty buys for the summertime! Impressed with its hydrating formula, she named the £3.95 treat “a luxurious-feeling, all-natural balm to keep lips soft and any dry patches moist”.
As well as appearing in the publication’s print and online outlets, the feature also ran on Yahoo!
From balms to bras now. With the shift towards more comfortable underwear showing no sign of slowing, GLAMOUR gave us the run down of the best bras to know for WFH. Soft, stretchy and seam-free, Boody’s Shaper Bra was bound to feature as one of the top wireless wonders!
Next up, RevitaLash! After reaching the 10 million tube milestone last week, BURO substantiated the serum’s sky-high sales with its round up of the very best buys for beautiful lashes.
BAAPS also picked up plenty of mentions in the press this week. As cosmetic surgery continues to rise in line with the easing of lockdown restrictions, the organisation’s call for caution featured on Suffolk Business, Suffolk Wire and South East Connected.
BAAPS “issued a warning to consumers to check the credentials of their practitioner before going ahead with any treatments. Along with a boom in demand for aesthetic procedures, there have been worrying reports of rising numbers of botched treatments. Badly executed aesthetic treatments are most often linked to unaccredited and poorly trained practitioners. This is why BAAPS is warning consumers to check they use only fully qualified, accredited and professionally insured providers.”
The association’s commitment to safety and education within the industry also saw them featured in Metro, The Sun and Yahoo! this week.
President Mary O’Brien also provided comment on developments in the PIP breast implant scandal for Aesthetic Medicine while council member Caroline Payne spoke to Pick Me Up! about the alarming influence that social media and reality TV can yield over aesthetic surgery.
That brings this week’s coverage highlights to a close. See you next Friday for more!
