Get fuller lashes with this innovative mascara
Achieve long, thick lashes with Aliver’s new mascara
Dreaming of long, thick lashes? Aliver’s Hemp Mascara is your dream come true! It’s formulated with hemp protein, which coats the lashes to make them appear longer, plus argan oil, natural beeswax and acacia gum. These ingredients all work together to support keratin creation, which strengthens lashes from within.
Emulsified inside each mascara tube are tiny fibres that inflate like cushions; when you sweep the brush through your lashes, the fibres lock together to thicken and add volume without making the lashes look spidery or stringy.
The product comes with the new, patented full-bristle brush to help you define and lengthen your lashes with zero clump. And not only is Aliver mascara 100 per cent cruelty free, it also contains no parabens, sulphates, lactin, gluten or GMOs. alivercosmetics.com/products/aliver-hemp-mascara

Get the smile of your dreams with White Glo’s Accelerator Teeth Whitening System
Since launching in 1993, White Glo has grown to become one of Australia’s top teeth whitening brands. Originally developed for film and TV make-up artists, its mission is to “use the latest research and technology to enable everyone to enjoy the confidence of a beautiful, white, brighter smile”.
Now available in the UK, the White Glo Accelerator Teeth Whitening System (£29.99) is an at-home kit containing whitening gel and an illuminating light mouth guard that, when switched on, activates the gel to aid the removal of stains, yellowing and discolouration.
