Stylist’s Best Dry Shampoo: Now at ASOS

best dry shampoo beauty awards

Exciting things afoot for Colab dry shampoo. It has just been voted the very best in its category by Stylist magazine – the dust-free formula and beautiful range of scents completely won the judges over and the Colab team now have a very funky perspex trophy to display in the office. (I’m photographed above at the awards with Miles Dunkley, co-founder of the brand.)

We’re in so many stores across the world, now (see here for a full stockist list) but its the latest little development that’s got me properly hot under the collar: Colab dry shampoo IN ASOS!

As someone who spends 86% of her free time trawling, this excites me greatly. People can shop for their clothes (and novelty socks, cactus stationery, unicorn knickers) and then throw a couple of cans of Colab into their basket at the end. Free delivery, job done.

If you haven’t yet been converted to the ways of the Colab, then do give it a try. I first got involved with Colab when it was in its (nameless) infancy and there was just a prototype can containing an amazing formula: I’d never before used a dry shampoo that didn’t have any powdery white residue and was pretty blown away. Since then, we’ve developed gorgeous fragrances and new versions and the whole thing has gone from strength to strength – if you want to take a look at the brand in more detail then the website is here.

Anyway, I’ve gone off on a proper ramble there! Colab is at ASOS now, as well as UK stockists Superdrug, Feel Unique and Beauty Mart. Try it and be converted…

What’s In My Beauty Kit?

my filming kit

I have a little box of stuff that I keep beside me if I’m doing a bit of a long-haul filming day. My face tends to get really sore if I do more than one makeup change (brilliant asset for a model!) and so I like to have a few soothing things handy, and also a selection of little bits and bobs to tidy up wonky mascara or errant liplines. I don’t retouch my videos or stills (can you even retouch video?) and so if I’m photographing products on my face I like to make sure that it’s all nice and neat before I start taking the pictures – I go through mountains of cotton buds and eye makeup remover!

The products in my Filming Kit do change depending on what I’m testing out at the time, but there are a few die-hard regulars in this video, including Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place concealer (just brilliant) and Pai’s Echium Eye Cream, which is amazing for soothing sore undereyes. The Clarins Repair Concentrate is a relatively new one for me – it’s more of an oil than the fluid you’d expect – but it works really well if you feel that your face needs a bit of a calm-down moment. I’d also highly recommend the Rose Balancing Moisturiser from MV Organic Skincare if you’re looking for something de-stressing and re-setting that will cocoon your face and make it feel less angsty. You can find that here.

Right – I’m off to film more videos! If you like my makeup in this one, then it’s the same combo as I detailed in my Glowing Skin MakeupDream Team post.
