Leading Bath Manufacturer, Carron Bathrooms is TSS Business of the Month for September 2015

Background Falkirk business Carron Bathrooms have a traceable history back to the eighteenth century. *Its iron foundry situated near to the River Carron manufactured defence equipment for the Royal Navy and so received a Royal Charter. During the Industrial Revolution, when pig iron and wrought iron production was at its height, the company saw continued growth. In 1870, new furnaces and offices were built on the Stenhouse Road. For two centuries the company was associated with major civil engineering projects, including its biggest, the supply of iron rings for the first Jarrow-Howden tunnel construction. The Carron Company Ltd have seen demand for their quality iron castings during two world wars and in peace time for defence, public and private sector customers, while also producing domestic products. The first Carron bath, cast iron of course, was manufactured in 1866! *ends* Made in Britain Time and time again, when researching businesses, we learn of British companies (those with long manufacturing histories and having enjoyed established reputations) falling into receivership during the 1980s, because of the new economic policies …

Femfresh Pocket Wipes – Festival Themed packs

A short, but concise review of Limited Edition FEMFRESH pocket wipes   I was a first time user of the Femfresh wipes but I’ll definitely be purchasing them again. The pack is a handy size and the floral design meant that they looked just like a pack of pocket tissues when I popped them in my bag. My daughter has been using wipes to freshen up since she started her periods a few months back and promptly took a pack for her school bag to take to summer camp. They are perfect for the summer heat and although I am highly sensitive to anything on my skin after using I was left feeling refreshed without any irritation. Consider me converted!  By Guest Blogger Amy W from Wales. Femfresh pocket wipes – Festival  addition are available now at Boots, Superdrug, supermarkets and chemists nationwide. All products are dermatologically and gynaecologically tested

TSS Business of the Month for December 2014 is Mira Showers (Kohler Mira Ltd)

Our Business of the Month, Mira Showers (Kohler Mira Ltd) is the company responsible for producing the world’s first thermostatic shower.     The company was first established in London. It formed a base in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire in its early days and remains there today, (sites also at Gloucester, Wolverhampton and a factory in Hull, Humberside). The business was privately owned by members of the Walker family who originally manufactured the Leonard shower mixer valves that were used widely in industry, schools and hospitals.   In 1959, the Leonard 722 (one from the company’s original Leonard brand) was introduced. This was the first thermostatic mixing valve designed to control water temperature and flow under UK pressure conditions. After 42 years the Leonard brand was retired and replaced by Mira Thermostatic. The company itself has had a few name changes since the original Walker, Crosweller and Co (est:1921). It became a subsidiary company in 1963 and was bought out in 1974, and in efforts to up the ante perhaps, was sold on three times and now rests …

Review of DENMAN® Hair Smoother Brushes

We are acquainted once again with Denman, a UK brand used by hairdressers worldwide, to tell you about their new Tangle Smoother Hair Brush and the Shower Brush. Denman Tangle Smoother RRP £10.18 incl VAT It is standard size hairbrush. Dimensions – Brush Length 215mm, Brush Width: 60mm, in a striking Pink colour. The pins are not nylon, but are made from shiny metal. The pins are smooth ended and strong and are set out in an oval shaped head consisting of 11 rows at its widest point. Designed so that it can glide through the tightest hair tangle and is suitable for any hair style. But we do recommend this style of hairbrush for those people with long, thick or fine hair, specifically.  Anyone, in fact, with the type of hair that can get really knotty after pillow contact overnight, after washing or swimming, and especially after vigorous towel drying. This brush will do the best job of detangling wet hair that has been ‘dried off’. The metal pins and the cushioned back (air …

She is excited to be writing about things that matter, hair products and the sorts!

Batiste, you have been a life-saver product for me and so many other disorganised, yet fabulous, girls. When TSS Reviews asked me to guest blog about this dry shampoo range I jumped at the opportunity to rave about one of my favourite products. Unfortunately I’m not brave enough to leave my hair unwashed to test how hardcore this product can be, however I have come to the conclusion that Batiste products should be used as your new favourite styling spray, and here’s why… I’ve always had …
