So you’re probably thinking that this Brand Spotlight post is very different to my others. It is and it isn’t! No, it’s not a cosmetic product, which is what I usually do, but Yes, it is relevant to cosmetics!
How? I hear you say.. 😛 Easy!
If you’re clumsy like me you’ll know the struggle of trying to do your makeup without wrecking your clothes! I frequently spill shit on myself. I’m obviously not blessed with great hand-eye coordination. Or, and I’m sure a lot of girls know this pain, getting foundation on a white top or dress. SO frustrating.
When Vanish contacted me to try out some of their products I was intrigued. How could I make this relevant to my readers? It was quite simple when I thought about it! I’ll test the products out against make up stains! So that’s what I did. 🙂
Vanish generously sent me out three of their products.
Vanish Gold Powergel
Vanish Gold Oxi Action Powder
Which one of my readers can also win for themselves… but more on that later! 😉
I purposely stained my top (painful) and left it for a few minutes. Because, come on, who really catches their stains as soon as they happen!? I then squirted some of the Powergel out and rubbed the stain with it’s ribbed head.
^Clean as a whistle!^
Next up on trial was the Gold Oxi Action Powder. For this stain I rubbed red lipstick against my top. Probably one of the worst colours you can stain your clothes with. 🙁
I threw one of these pink bubbles into the washing machine and let it do it’s thing. Again, my top came out with the faintest bit of red on it. Hmm, I decided to give the Powergel another shot to see if it’d budge this pesky stain. Lipsticks are normally oil based which makes them notoriously hard to shift. Et Voila! After a few seconds of rubbing the stain was finally gone!
After a bit of research I learnt I should have just used the Powergel first as it works better for those type of stains. The powder works better on stains such as mud or red wine. Which is handy to know as red wine stains like a b*tch! Good thing I usually drink white. 😛
So overall I was pretty impressed with these products, especially the Powergel. I’d recommend looking at Vanish’s website if you aren’t sure which product is best for which stain. Something I probably should of done. 😛 They have a handy tool on their website called the Stain Solver which you can check out here!Vanish have also kindly given me the chance to give all these products to one of my readers!
