Who knew that Ted Baker were the best selling luxury bathing and beauty range within Boots? Their festive gift sets are always beautiful and unique, their purse sprays and nail varnishes were received with warm reception in 2012, while their core range provides pretty hues and prettier scents. This January they expand their range even further with the introduction of their accessories collection, including nail clippers, scissors, emery boards, eye lash curlers and tweezers. They may not be the most glamourous of products sitting on your vanity desk, but they certainly are essential. Not a week goes by without me scrummaging around for a pair of nail scissors or an emery board for that pesky break. These five tools all come in the most fabulous packaging to adorn a Boots shelf in some time; each individually wrapped product comes within a sturdy card case that’s hung by a delicate maroon ribbon. (It’s a shame these weren’t launched before Christmas as they’d look brilliant hanging as decorations from the tree!) Although the product inside may be pretty dull in reality, the beauty is in the experience and the unwrapping – I’ve never been impressed by a nail clipper box before! Each one of the tools is made of stainless steel and feels pretty much like any pair of tweezers or emery board; however, a small Ted Baker logo features subtly on each tool to add that touch of glamour to an otherwise boring addition to your beauty regime. Essentially, the performance is no better than any other brand – after all, the secret is in the technique – but these do make fabulous presents or little treats for yourself. The range starts at £6.00 too, so you can justify a little treat this payday without breaking the bank.
Nail clippers, scissors and tweezers RRP £6.00, pack of three emery boards RRP £5.00 and eyelash curlers RRP £8.00. Launching in Boots stores nationwide from 28th January.
