Influential annual Superbrands® list reveals the strongest brands for 2013 and Sudocrem once again achieve Superbrand status!
Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream has just been named a Consumer Superbrand, after an independent survey of over 2,900 British consumers, it’s fair to say we are thrilled!
The annual Superbrands survey is recognised as being a key signal of brand strength and what makes us especially proud is the fact that the awards are given out following the assessment of three key criteria: quality, reliability and distinction.
Stephen Cheliotis, Chairman of the Superbrands Expert Council said: “It is a huge achievement that Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream has beaten tough competition to take its place in the prestigious 2013 Consumer Superbrands listing – the influential annual survey of the UK’s strongest consumer brands.”
Sticking to the same style clothing and neutral colours for work might seem a little drab at times as most women get into a routine and find it difficult to break away from their comfort zone.
There are plenty of ways to fuse new and exciting ideas into your workwear wardrobe though by incorporating sophisticated designs that have a chic wearable edge to them allowing you to be more adventurous with your office attire.
Putting together a workwear capsule wardrobe for women is an ideal way to fuse your existing style with the latest trends so you don’t have to go out and spend your entire monthly wage on piles of new clothes, shoes and accessories.
Purchasing a few key pieces for your workwear capsule wardrobe that can be worn with your own garments will help to instantly update certain looks whilst giving you more of a variety of outfits to choose from.
Maybe introduce a few different prints into your workwear capsule wardrobe such as florals, stripes and checks which are total must-haves for Spring/Summer 2013. These designs will create interesting shapes and illusions whilst remaining smart and wearable.
Beauty enthusiasts have thoroughly enjoyed the bountiful array of beauty trends for 2012 as there has been an amazing mixture of styles and colours available thanks to the creativity which was seen on the designer catwalks. These looks gave women across the country inspiration whether they were after a subtle or bold look to create their own take on this season’s hottest makeup trends.
Metallics were a welcome change for Spring/Summer 2012 as these sparkly must-haves don’t normally appear till fall. Eyes were complimented by versatile shades of warm copper and gold. In contrast there were bright bold shades which were perfect for the summery months.
Other beauty trends of 2012 included feline inspired eyeliner which helped to create dramatic effects and flashes of neon colour to bring a statement edge to eyes. Retro wasn’t just for the clothing on the catwalk either as beautiful vintage-esque makeup was all the rage throughout SS12.
A clear clean complexion allowed for a bold red lip to be the main focus of this trend for a statement evoking pout. Bold brows allowed women to forget about their tweezers for a while instead opting to use brow pencils to achieve definition whilst purple and lilac tones were popular hues to fuse into day and evening looks.
Winter hair maintenance is hard work – that sneaky little assassin Mr Cold murders moisture and dries hair out, and his major accomplice is central heating. Dull, damaged, limp hair is often from the effects of winter.
And if summer (or the English version thereof) is anything to go by, it’s going to be a long, cold, bitter winter.
Something that may help out with hair dryness is DGJ Organics new Berutti Oil Hair Sleekener. Containing organic Argan oil (a new Moroccan oil), the restorative sleekener aims to hydrate and repair hair.
The ‘Hair Repair & Gloss Treatment’, although not designed specifically for winter hair, is a good way to help dry hair in general.
In fact, the whole DGJ range is pretty impressive.
For hair that’s been partying all night try ‘Hangover Hair’ – shampoo, conditioner and treatment – to restore life to dull and tired hair.
One way to feel cheery about the long, dreary winter is to think ahead to sassy summer (let’s be optimistic – very unBritish I know, but still doable). And when your thoughts are occupied by picnics in the park, beautiful beaches and warm rays on your skin (as the wind gusts and the cold bites)… remember that it’s never too early to plan a wardrobe!
