Just for Men AutoStop Review & Giveaway

When I was asked if I’d like to try out Just for Men’s AutoStop, I thought of “Just the man” I could try it out with.  Husband Tony will be 40 in April next year and seems to going through some sort of mid life crisis which involves him changing his career and contemplating swapping his reliable family saloon for a two seater sports car.  He started sprouting grey hairs a few years ago and now has a quite a collection around his temples.

Just for men AutoStop

Just for men AutoStop is unique in the fact that it does not contain ammonia or peroxide and has Oxygen Activated technology that  targets only grey hair, shuts off when it reaches the desired colour and will not colour the original shade of your hair eliminating the chance of over-colouring and ending up with Lego head hair!

Just for Men AutoStop

There is no mixing needed all you need to do, after trying an allergy patch test 48 hours prior, is screw the handy comb applicator onto the end of the tube and squeeze, combing the Just for Men into your hair, starting where your hair is the greyest.  As Tony’s is only on the side of his head this is the only place we applied the AutoStop.

Just for Men AutoStop

It was really easy to apply, mess free and works in just ten minutes, after this hair will need a good rinse and a shampoo.

Here’s the before and after shots.

Just for Men AutoStopJust for Men AutoStop

Tony was a little concerned that by only applying the AutoStop on the side of his hair that there would be a colour difference between the rest of his hair afterwards but because it doesn’t actually change the colour of hair, just colours unpigmented air, there were no obvious signs he’d coloured his hair at all – just no grey!   He’s really pleased with the natural looking results, announcing that it’s “taken years off him!”

AutoStop by Just for Men is available in four shades (Light Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Brown and Real Black) priced at £8.69 and available from Boots, Superdrug, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Adsa and Waitrose.  For more information on AutoStop visit www.justformen.com


Just for Men are also giving you the chance to win a six months supply of AutoStop in the shade of your choosing.  To enter simply leave a comment below telling me shade you would like.

The competition will close at midnight of 4th December 2013 and the winner will be drawn at random from all entries received.  It is open to UK residents only and restricted to one entry per household.

This is a sponsored post but has in no way altered my opinion of the product.

Win 6 Gruffalo Soft Toys with Scottish Friendly

I’d like to think that I know my readers very well, so when I was sent information about this competition from Scottish Friendly I knew immediately that it would appeal to you all.

Scottish Friendly are a Mutual Society, owned by their members rather than shareholders, providing financial products and services such as Junior ISAs and the MiBond.  They are giving you the chance to win a set of these 6 Gruffalo cuddly toys in their latest competition.


How to enter

Head over to the Scottish Friendly Facebook Page, hit the LIKE button and then simply share your best family money saving tips on their wall using the hastag  #ThriftyFamily.  It really is that easy!

The competition closes on Monday 2nd December (full term and conditions are here) so you have a while to have a think about it  but here are a few of my top money saving tips.

  1. The biggest out going we have in our house is our mortgage, we only took it out four years ago and our term was fixed for five years.  Interest rates have changed an awful lot in the last four years so we knew we weren’t getting a good enough deal anymore.  A fixed term doesn’t mean it’s not worth buying yourself out of it, we did and are now paying over £300 less on our mortgage a month and we’ll be mortgage free five years earlier!
  2. It’s estimated that the average home throws out roughly £500 worth of food every year.  I hate waste and try my best to avoid it where ever possible.  Before your shopping trip make a weekly plan of the meals you will need and what you are going to cook for them, then make a shopping list o the things you need.  This way you’ll only buy the things you need.
  3. My last money saving tip is one that my husband taught me and one that I use on every shopping trip.  Before ANY purchase simply ask yourself three questions.  Do I need it?  Can I afford it? and Can I get anywhere else cheaper?  I am often tempted with bargains and but because something seems to be attractively priced it doesn’t always mean it’s the cheapest or that you even need it.
