There’s no better pastime than testing out the coolest new skincare/makeup/hair trends and snazzy innovations in beauty tech from the comfort of your own home. That said, there’s nothing more frustrating than spending upwards of £100 on a new at-home facial system or snazzy pair of hair straighteners, only to find out they don’t *actually* work.
Enter GLAMOUR Tries: the weekly Instagram series which sees GLAMOUR editors do all of the time-consuming (and expensive) work for you.
Yep, we’ve been busy trying out all of the wacky and wonderful beauty crazes to take the internet (read: TikTok) by storm – from BaByliss’ Hydro Fusion Air Styler (the rotating hot air brush of dreams) to CurrentBody’s Skin LED Precision and Fanola’s No Yellow Foam Conditioner. These are the products every influencer/gen-Z beauty slueth/beauty editor is talking about on the internet – but that you want to be sure about before parting with your money.
Thanks to GLAMOUR Tries, you won’t need to waste your hard-earned pennies on testing these innovations yourself. We’re getting in their first, giving you the lowdown and making sure you invest in products that genuinely work. Like what you see? You can shop all of the products seen on GLAMOUR tries in previous weeks down below. Race ya?
On GLAMOUR Tries this week, Social Media Director Chloe Laws tested out the Amika Hair Blow Dryer Brush; a two-in-one hair styling tool that combines a round hair brush and blow dryer and claims to easily and quickly create a smooth, bouncy, salon-quality blowout at home.
“I’m really excited! I’m awful at blow drying my own hair, I do not have the talent, but I love the feeling when you leave the salon so I’m hoping this is going to be a game changer in my hair routine.” Chloe says about the Hair Blow Dryer Brush.
Taking it out the box, Chloe comments on the brush’s size: “It’s massive compared to your usual blow dry brush! For reference, it’s the size of my face which should give me a lot of volume I’m thinking and just get through my hair quite quickly. My hair’s quite thick so hopefully I won’t be here for ages.”
Chloe gets to using the tool, sweeping it through her hair evenly for a professional blowout finish. “So there we have it! As you can see I have zero skill in blow drying but it still turned out really nice! I do feel like I’ve had a blow dry.”
