Herbal Essences beautiful compositions

I always loved Herbal Essences haircare, simply because they made my hair look great and fragrance of them is just to die for. When I found out that Savvy circle is launching a Herbal Essences project I couldn’t be more exited , as it is a whole new collection . Well I was very pleased that I have made it into the team, and pretty much few days after receiving an email courier knocked on my door. As you can see on the picture above I received nice set of -Cucumber and green tea shampoo and conditioner , which is very light on my hair, after usage my hair feel very soft and manageable and clean feeling lasts all day , fragrance is very fresh and sweet.

Second set- Argan oil again light texture fantastic fragrance but buy the end of the day I feel like my hair are getting little bit greasy, not sure if this is set for me as even though I do colour my hair they’re not very damaged or very dry, personally think that this set would be suitable for persons with dry and damaged hair.

Last but not least White strawberry and sweet mint I think this set is my favourite out of three as my hair are very shiny, soft and feeling strong at the same time not mentioned again how good they smell.

I am happy to say that I would definitely recommend Herbal Essences new “bio renew ” collection not just because they smell great but you can feel the difference on your hair , and also happy that they don’t contain any gluten- silicones, and can be used on coloured hair without any restrictions .

All I can say is that give it a go you will not be disappointed.

Lots of love

Secret scent box 

Secret scent box it is a subscription service where you pay ¬£15 every month and you will receive 3 perfume samples, 3 ml each which will last up  to 30 days using 4 sprays a day.  Each scent is randomly picked. And as I am absolutely obsessed with the perfumes and always looking for new fragrances this service give me a chance to try some great fragrances before making design on my next purchase. 

This month I have received 

W- by Ted Baker 

This is very gentle and sophisticated fragrance which I have never tried before, I don’t know why but it never appealed to me , maybe because of bottle design which is nothing wrong with, but also there is nothing unusual which cought my eye . But going back to the fragrance is very fresh with notes of peony , african violet, pink orchid, raspberry, cedar and vanilla which makes it great day time fragrance especially suitable in spring and summer.  I  was impressed with “W” how lovely and light is but for another hand it doesn’t last all day, I couldn’t smell anything in the evening which is not what I am used to.  Personally I would not buy it just for that practical reason, but if someone is not bothered by the fact that fragrance doesn’t last that long , this could be a lovely daily weare ūüĎć

Amor Amor -by Cacharel 

This is another fragrance i haven’t been able to use before and this is a classic because I have seen it in the shops for many years, and I little bit disappointed with myself that I have never bought it as this is surprisingly great perfume, It’s a fruity floral that’s both fresh and sexy , it makes me feel little bit different , it makes me stand out from the crowd lol and what’s very important for me it does last all day, definitely worth buying it. Well I know I will ūüėČ

Mon Guerlain- by Guerlain 

Oh this is my favourite out of the whole trio, simply because it’s  luxurious,very strong (and I love strong), very feminine and sensual. It makes me feel very special . I will be wearing it on the daily basis and  on the special occasions as well. I couldn’t be more happier with this perfume and absolutely recommend it to other ladies who love little bit of luxury in life ūüėä

Eye love

OOlution is the result of founder Anne-Marie’s mission to create skincare that doesn’t rely on just one or two ingredients, but a host actives. She also wanted it to be a treat to use and to steer clear of synthetic ingredients and palm oil. She certainly succeeded at what she set out to achieve with this luxurious eye cream . The 100% natural formula is hydrating and rich in antioxidants, helping to diminish dark circles and reduce puffiness, whether you use it at the end of the long  day or in the morning after ūüėČ

This Works 

This little gem was one of the products I have received in my Glossybox March edition. In Transit camera close- up is a hero product for very good reason… why ? Because it’s just what my skin needs when it has lost its equilibrium. This primer balances, plumps and brightens skin leaving it lovely and smooth ready for photo shoot, there are rumours that Victoria Beckham loves it so much lol.I like to use it over my usual moisturiser or face oil for extra hydration boost and I am ready to apply my makeup. I would happily recommend this product it really gives me fresher looking makeup and it lasts all day . The only bad thing is that it cost ¬£28 for 30 ml ,so it is bit expensive, but for another hand you only need small amount of it pea size for whole face . 

Worth trying ūüėČ 

Glossy box . Beauty Surprise-March 

Recently I have been hearing a lot about beauty box subscriptions, and was wondering if this is any good. Did some research what kind of boxes are available in UK and decided to try Glossy Box UK. It costs  ¬£10 a month plus delivery so it’s not bad for what you get believe me . The real fun about it is that you never know what you’ll receive each month all you know that you’ll get 5 beauty products to try . When my box has arrived I must say I was very impressed with packaging. Beautifully presented pink box with black ribbon and 5 products inside. 

I have received 

oOlution- eye cream 100% 20 ml

Eye and cheek Pallette full size 

This Works in transit camera close up  20 ml 

Figs & Rouge day cream 20 ml 

BC Bonacure Oil  Miracle Brazilnut Oil Pulp Treatment  30 ml 

I am very excited about trying all of this beautiful products and as soon as possible I’ll be coming back with my feedback. Have you tried any of these products? If yes what are your thoughts ? Looking forward to hearing from you ūüĆě 

Love Natural Skincare

 Why natural cosmetics?
Because nobody has discovered anything better than nature itself. After years and years of using everything chemical nowadays we observe that allover the world fashion is for everything what’s real not fake , natural not chemical .
Not only old home remedies and cosmetics has been rediscovered but also companies putting a lots of hard work and efforts to master natural noninvasive methods creating everything the best from the plants. More often we’re looking for more traditional ways of beauty regime , simply because only what’s natural its safe this days. Ingredients in natural cosmetics should be free from any harsh perfumes , colorants or preservatives. Plant components in natural cosmetics should come from controlled farms where only natural ways has been used to grow the plants which means they should be free from any chemical waste.
The closer to the nature means better product , but i am sure you already know that 13627243_1707474392837943_2550683889218194883_n

L’Oreal Paris Magic Retouch

 

Another Bzzcampaign I was very exited about , as I do colour my hair and just started going grey I thought this will be a perfect solution for me .

When I first used Magic Retouch I was quite impressed with the results, how well mine roots were covered (just to mention that my roots were very small ). In the past I have tried dry shampoo with the touch of colour but I found it looking too yellow and also had flakes of yellow powder on my scalp which didn’t look very attractive. And to be honest I thought Magic Retouch will have similar effect, but to mine surprise I was wrong, after usage there were no residue and no flakes falling off my hair ,¬†¬†the packaging is nice and compact and it can be taken anywhere easy fits in the handbag, it’s very easy to use, simply¬†shake it up a little and spray it onto your roots ¬†.¬† But sadly¬† over time as my roots has grown bit more ,¬†mine opinion has changed .At the beginning¬† of the campaign my roots were small and magic Retouch did worked well for me, but now my roots are much bigger and unfortunately after using magic Retouch I don’t see that my roots are magically disappearing , just looking more yellow/brown ish ¬†¬†. I think this is a good product for ladies with dark hair where roots don’t have to be discoloured like mine , ¬†my friends who have dark hair and used the¬†different shades of the same product¬†¬†said that it does work perfectly well on greys , but¬† have only one let down, it can be very messy, so it’s okay if you have using it at home, but could be a problem if you are on the night out and need a touch up this is certainly not recommended ūüėí an less you take a towel with you to cover yourself up , but that just wouldn’t make sense , would it ?¬† I would give it¬†2.5 out of 5 * . In my opinion Magic Retouch needs lots of improvement especially on the light shades .

And this is the effect of Magic Retouch

 

Sure compressed – experiment

Couple of weeks ago I joined another BzzAgent campaign , this time I have been sent 2 deodorants antiperspirants in the form of aerosol .

First can of Sure its 250 ml , the second can its a 125 ml can of compressed Sure .

The whole experiment is about comparing both   cans how long they will last , in theory the Sure compressed 125 ml can suppose to last just as long as the big 250 ml can . The main reason behind this is that sure want to reduce amount of packaging and gas they are using to produce the big cans . I have been given instructions to use both cans every day with the difference of use big can under my right arm and than spray Sure compressed under my left arm .

mine-best-friends-lrg

When I first received an invitation to Sure campaign I was very excited because I didn’t have one for a while and also curious about the whole challenge. Recently I have been using roll on Sure deodorant also cotton fresh, but I also used compressed cans of invisible aqua fresh which were very good and effective. Never tryied to compare the big can with compressed until now, but first I want to say how unimpressed I am with effectiveness of the both deodorants, I use them just as I’ve been asked big can under right arm and compressed under left. As soon as I use I the with both of deodorants the gas is so irritating that I can’t breathe I have to hold my breath until I finish my routine otherwise I cough and choke like someone with long problems, after dreadful 20 seconds I can breathe again but I have leave the bathroom. The effectiveness isn’t as good as I was expecting, I work in the busy restaurant and I can’t afford to worry about my smell especially when being in contact with diners, unfortunately Sure has failed to keep me fresh trough my shift and I had to reapply it couple of times while working. If it comes to which can last longer I think in my case probably the big one, because I take compressed deo with me to work its convenient because of the smaller size, and only just after one week of usage I can tell that small can will run out quicker. I can understand why Sure decided to create a compressed can, everybody this days are trying to make a difference to the our Planet earth and it is a beautiful cause but I think that Sure should also concentrate on other aspects of the product like effectiveness and irritating gas.

Another annoying  thing was terrible white powder after use , I am sure there is a way to improve that , because it is not very attractive when you walk around wearing black T-shirt and some white flakes are flying out of your underarms .

underwhelmed-with-sure-compressed-lrg

¬† I have done little bit of research on aerosol deodorants and I don’t think in any way they are not harming our environment. Another sad thing I also found out that Unilever which produces Sure does products testing on animals, which for me completely doesn’t seem to make sense on one side they claim that they want to protect environment but on the other hand animals have to suffer from their hands I think this is not Wright my lovely people. If it comes to the experiment which can will last longer in my case the big can wins, my compressed can is almost empty. One big disappointment. Sorry Sure I won’t be using compressed or any aerosol deodorants that’s for sure.

Kiss The Moon – GLOW After Dark Face Oil

image 

Recently I have received an Glow after dark face oil  With  Orange , Geranium , Myrrh and Litsea to try  bottle  of 3 ml .

I never used face oils before because I thought it will be to greasy for my type of skin , but to mine surprise is quiet light and absorbs very quick into the skin .

The promised benefits from using this golden liquid is to help you relax and to nourish your skin and your soul while you sleep , provide vitamins your skin  needs to stay radiant .

All that promise I thought I will give it a go , so I have put¬† few drops of the magic oil on my¬† face and massage gently , the first thing I noticed was the smell , it is citrusy but very herby in the same time , I wasn’t sure if I like that . the texture its light and get absorbed very nicely into my skin . That it easy routine and I am off to bed , lie down next to my partner and he says why¬†your face smell like scented candle ? I said its an magic oil I am using now be quiet and let me relax :}

The  strong herby smell faded after 20 minutes and I have to say that it did help me relax,  probably breathing essential oils while in comfy bed helped a lot  . Now I have been using Glow for a week and I do feel very refreshed when I wake up in the morning , my skin is very soft and smooth .

The oil itself is 100% Natural

Not tested on Animals

Made in England

I would Highly recommend this product especially to Ladies and Gents with dry skin   , Price for a 30 ml you pay £48 is not cheap but I think is worth it .
