CREATE A FLAWLESS BASE
Ever wondered how Jessica Alba keeps her skin looking ultra-glowing all year round? Like us, she’s an advocate of a strict cleansing routine and puts her luminous A-list complexion down to one nifty gadget – Braun Face. It’s a cleansing brush and epilator in one that deep cleans pores, brightens and buffs skin to perfection. Pop on the epilator head to tidy up brows or get rid of any unwanted facial hair.

GIVE HAIR A BOOST
Before you dismiss this as utter madness, just look at Blake Lively’s luscious mane.

The fizzy drink is much better at creating a tousled look or that’s what she reckons. We beg to differ.
