Review: Moroccan Rose Water Facial Mist Spray – InstaNatural

I was sent this Moroccan Rose Water from InstaNatural a while back and it has become a part of my daily skin care routine ever since. InstaNatural is a natural, cruelty-free skincare brand based in the USA. They sell a wide range of organic and natural products including face masks, aromatherapy oils, natural oils, cleansers, moisturisers, toners, etc… and all of their products contain no nasty ingredients such as parabens, colourants and artificial fragrances. I absolutely love InstaNatural and I already have lots of products from the brand and I love every one of them.

What is it?

”Our Rose Water is 100% pure, natural water made from Rosa Damascena flower petals with no artificial fragrances, preservatives or added chemicals. Rose Water is a multifunctional treatment with soothing, hydrating and revitalizing properties. This product naturally balances the skin’s pH and is an effective toner for any dry or troubling skin.” – InstaNatural


First Impressions:

The Moroccan Rose Water comes in an outer cardboard box and inside is the 120 ml white, glass spray bottle which has a spray nozzle and a clear plastic lid. The packaging is simple, fresh and attractive and there is a lot of info about the rose water on the back of the box & bottle including ingredients, how to use, benefits, etc… The Moroccan Rose Water is basically a water spray and it has a subtle rose scent which smells so pretty.

My Thoughts On The Moroccan Rose Water:

I absolutely love this spray and use it for everything. I love how it doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals or artificial fragrances – so it is gentle and kind on my sensitive skin and it doesn’t irritate my psoriasis or make them worse. It literally smells amazing – I love rose-scented products and this rose water has a gorgeous, natural scent which smells beautiful.

After cleansing my skin, I use this Moroccan Rose Water as a toner by applying some of the rose water to a cotton pad and wiping it over my face and neck to close my pores and prevent blackheads. I also use it on damp skin after bathing and showering too and it helps to hydrate and soothe my dry skin. Now and again, I spray a little onto my hair and scalp and comb through and it makes my hair moisturised, shinier and it soothes my irritated scalp.

My favourite way to use the Moroccan Rose water is to spray some onto my skin after applying my foundation, concealer and setting powder. I just apply one or two spritz of the water to my face and my make-up looks so much more natural and flawless afterwards. It is a great little make-up setting spray and I love how it makes cakey powder appear more dewy and radiant. I  love how this is a multi-purpose spray and it can also be used as a aftershave, for aromatherapy uses, treating sunburn, for removing make-up, perking up tired, puffy eyes and so much more.

Disclosure: – This product was gifted to me for review purposes.


Recommended For:

The Moroccan Rose Water is perfect for all skin types but I would especially recommend it for those with oily, dry or sensitive skin and those who suffer with skin complaints such as acne, psoriasis and eczema.


Where To Buy?

I did get mine HERE from InstaNatural’s Amazon UK shop but they don’t seem to stock the rose water anymore. I’ve had a look on Google too for UK shops who sell InstaNatural products and I can’t seem to find any. If I do I will update this post.

If you are from the USA you can shop  it for $13.97 HERE on Amazon.com or HERE on the website.

Review: Smooth Me Coconut Hair Serum – Inecto Naturals

I picked up some of Inecto Naturals‘ – Smooth Me Coconut Hair Serum from Home Bargains and thought I’d write a little review for you guys as both of my other Inecto posts have proved quite popular with my readers. I loved the Super Nourishing Shampoo & the Super Moisturising Conditioner and The Divine Coconut Hair Oil made my hair feel silky soft. Both of these posts are up there with my all-time, most viewed posts so I thought I would give the serum a whirl.

INECTO - Smooth Me Coconut Hair Serum

Who are Inecto?

Inecto Naturals are a fabulous little beauty brand based in the UK who sell natural, cruelty-free, vegan friendly skin-care and hair-care products.  What I love most about Inecto Naturals is that up to 90% of their ingredients are from natural origins. They also work with farms across the world to add only sustainable sourced oils to their products.

What is the Smooth Me Coconut Hair Serum?

The Smooth Me Coconut Hair Serum is a lightweight serum infused with Pure Organic Coconut Oil. It works by smoothing fly away hairs and tames damaged, frizzy hair leaving it feeling soft and sleek.

First impressions:

I love Inecto‘s packaging, all of their products look simple yet fresh and eye-catching. The serum comes in a 50 ml squeezy tube with a ‘lockable’ lid to stop any unwanted product spill. The serum itself is a clear, transparent oil  which smells so god damn sweet. It has a mild coconut scent too.

Inecto Smooth Me Coconut Hair Serum 1

How to use the Smooth Me Coconut Hair Serum?

Warm a little pea-sized amount of serum in your hands and run through the hair, focusing on the ends.

Inecto Smooth Me Coconut Hair Serum 2

The serum is basically an oil so you guessed it – it feels kinda oily! When applying to your hair make sure to use only the tiniest amount as only a little bit of the serum is needed. If you use too much your hair will look oily and greasy. You can add a little more if needed but I would advise to apply a little at a time so your hair doesn’t look like it hasn’t been washed in a decade! Try to stay away from the roots too as they are already lubricated with your naturally occurring  hair oils and we know that too much oil = grease. Apply only to the mid-lengths and tips of your hair.

Verdict:

Wow! Another Inecto product that I love! I think the Smooth Me Hair Serum is probably my all-time favourite product from Inecto which is saying something as I absolutely loved the Shampoo & Conditioner and the Hair Oil. This serum really works amazingly at taming frizzy hair and making damaged hair appear healthy-looking, my hair looks great. The serum is really oily so only a little bit is needed which means one 50 ml tube will last ages. After applying only a little of the serum to my mid-lengths and tips my hair instantly felt smoother and I can’t get over how healthier it looked. My hair was left with a little shine and it smelled gorgeous for most of the day too as the scent lingered for quite a while. I think Inecto are probably one of my fave brands right now, simply because their products are inexpensive, they really do work and they smell amazing! I can”t wait to try some of Inecto‘s other products out. I really do love the Naturals Coconut range and think I’ll try some of the skin-care products next as I’ve only used the hair products.  I will have to try something from the  Naturals Argan range next time too.

Where to buy?

I’ve bought all of my Inecto products at Home Bargains for less than £2. I think the Smooth Me Coconut Hair Serum was around about £1.20 which is an absolute bargain, trust me! Although, if you want to shop now you can buy it online at  Amazon UK here for £2.80 plus £1 postage.

Review: Toni & Guy – Damage Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

I bought some Toni & Guy shampoo & conditioner last week from their Cleanse & Nourish hair collection, I chose their Damage Repair Shampoo & Conditioner as I’ve been on the lookout for a really good shampoo & conditioner to repair my damaged, frizzy hair. I’ve never bought anything from Toni & Guy before so I didn’t know what to expect but I thought with them being such a popular hair care brand, that the products were sure to be good.

21617918_10213814791868322_2549194530408419378_n

Verdict:

Both the shampoo & conditioner come in 250 ml bottles and to be honest I expected them to be much bigger than they were, although they still had a good amount of product in each. Both bottles also have a push down dispenser which I found easy to use.

21617603_10213814794468387_6947129253247926909_n

I absolutely love the Damage Repair shampoo! It has a pearlescent shimmer and foams up so well I literally had a ball whilst washing my hair and I didn’t want to rinse it off. To say the bottle is not as big as I thought it would be, I think one 250 ml bottle will last a lot longer than expected simply because it lathers so good. The shampoo helps to revitalise hair fibers, which leave it feeling much stronger and a lot more manageable. My hair is super frizzy and dry and this shampoo not only moisturises my hair pretty well but it gently removes excess oil, dirt and impurities from the hair and scalp, whilst giving it a gorgeous little shine and making it healthy-looking.

21558694_10213814793508363_1337605814689209531_n

The Damage Repair Conditioner works by penetrating deep into the hair, repairing damage from root to tip leaving it feeling soft to the touch, I noticed my hair looked healthier after only using once. Like the shampoo, the conditioner has a lovely perfumed scent and it smells gorgeous. I think I may need to buy the conditioner more frequently than the shampoo which lathers amazingly because I like to slather lots of conditioner onto my hair, so basically the shampoo will last longer than the conditioner.

19656901_10213814794068377_5228078238885668798_n

I highly recommend both the shampoo & conditioner if you have frizzy, brittle, dry and damaged hair. After only a week of using the shampoo & conditioner I’m really pleased with the results so far and expect to see better results after each use. My dull, brittle hair appears shinier, softer and less damaged and so much more healthier looking in such a short period of time and I will definitely be repurchasing.

Where To Buy?

I got my shampoo here for just £4.75 and my conditioner here for £4.82.

Amazon UK also have 50 ml sample bottles available to buy too, but they are add on items and you must spend £20 to qualify for delivery.

You can get a 50 ml bottle of the shampoo here for £2.99 and you can buy the 50 ml conditioner for ONLY £1 here.

Review: Blue Zoo – Depilatory Hard Wax Beans For Hair Removal (No Strips Required)

I was kindly sent some of Blue Zoo’s Depilatory Hard Wax Beans to review and I’m not going to lie I have been shitting myself thinking about using them. I am the biggest wimp ever when it comes to pain and I’ve always had the impression that waxing = PAIN. After reading some reviews on the wax beans, I’ve learned that these hard wax beans don’t hurt as much when removed and nowhere near as painful as sugar wax or wax strips.

21751281_10213812415168906_974073718195310934_n

How To Use?

The Hard Wax Beans require no wax strips and are fairly simple & easy to use.

21751666_10213812418368986_176905883856347925_n_edited21617950_10213812419809022_6102698672227145695_n

1) Take the appropriate amount of wax beans to melt.

I used two handfuls of the wax beans, which was well enough for my forearms and upper lip, I even had some leftover

2) Heat the wax to a melting temperature of 68℃

You can use an electric wax warmer or place a bowl inside a hot saucepan of boiling water and heat gently. The wax takes about 10 minutes to completely melt. Be careful not to get any water in the bowl of wax beans.

21752399_10213812421009052_6357648563338569543_n

3) When the wax has melted, it gives off a subtle lavender scent which smells pretty. Test a little bit of the wax by putting a dab of it on the back of your hand. If it is too hot or hurts, wait a minute for it to cool down a little bit. Once your happy with the temperature, using a spatula, spread a layer of the wax on the skin along the direction of the hair growth.

21558619_10213812421769071_8406873449865459035_n

(Remember, your hairs need to be longer than 5mm, if your hairs are too short the wax won’t grab the hairs well and wont be removed. Also, the thickness of the wax you apply will need to be at least 1.5mm. If you spread it too thin onto your skin, it won’t remove any hairs and may hurt when doing so.)

4) When the wax becomes cool, hard and makes your skin feel taut, pull off the wax film with a quick pull against the direction of the hair growth. The faster you do this the less painful it will be.

If you have any leftover wax, you can wait until it hardens and it can be reheated to use again another time.

Ingredients

Colophonium(Rosin), Glyceryl Rosinate, Ethylene/VA Copolymer, Paraffin, Glyceryl Hydrogenate Rosinate, Methyl Hydrogenated Rosinate, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, C30~45 Alkyl Methicone

Warnings:

Do not use if you have inflamed skin or had a reaction to any wax products in the past. If you have a skin disorder (like me) consult your doctor before using. Also, do not use within two hours of showering or sunbathing. If it is your first time using any wax products, test the wax on a small area 24 hours before using to rule out any skin reactions. If your skin does react to the wax, use aloe vera gel on your skin and discontinue use.

Verdict?

On the packet it says that the Hard Wax Beans are suitable for the removal of body and facial hair on all skin types but if you have a skin disorder you should consult your doctor. I have psoriasis and I remember when I was in beauty school back in the day, my teacher wouldn’t allow me to get waxed because of it, so make sure you get professional advice before using if you have skin problems.

At the moment my psoriasis has flared up really badly, It’s even flared up on my armpits so I decided against using the wax on my body and chose the safer option instead and used it on my forearms and upper lip as those areas are psoriasis-free.

I’m actually surprised that it didn’t hurt, I was expecting to be in tears afterwards but I was proved wrong. I’ll admit I felt the littlest amount of pain but it was bearable and I’m not put off using them again. I found them easy to use, the wax had a lovely lavender scent after melting and when I removed the hard wax film on my skin I could see lots of tiny hairs stuck to it, so they do work. My skin was a little red afterwards but it soon faded leaving me with smooth, hair free skin. I will definitely be using these again and I 100% recommend.

I’ve no complaints about this product and I would give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Where To Buy?

You can get a bag of Hard Wax Beans from Blue Zoo by clicking here. One 100g bag is only £6.66 and if you’re an Amazon Prime Member you can get same day delivery. I do recommend buying some waxing spatulas too, they are quite cheap and you can pick some up here for less than £2.

Review: John Frieda Frizz Eaze – Forever Smooth Anti Frizz Primer

 

Hi Girls,

I’ve been using John Frieda’s Anti Frizz Primer for months now and my hair would be totally lost without it, I absolutely can’t live without it! I’m one of those girls who gets bored with their hair colour easily and I regularly change my colour from black to blonde to brown to black and then back to blonde and so on, as well as using heat, i.e, hair straighteners, curling irons and hairdryer, so you can imagine how damaged my hair is, especially at my tips. A few months back I impulsively bleached my long, jet black hair to platinum blonde within a week or so, bleaching it with the highest strength volume about 3 or 4 times which resulted in me having to chop a good few inches off my ends to prevent my hair from snapping off. My hair is still damaged now, I refuse to cut any more off except for the odd trim every now and then but its gonna take a while to repair. I’m gutted I’ve lost my length but at least I know with good care it will grow back again.

14642169_10210453755124504_8567069718008052859_n

The Anti-Frizz Primer comes in a 100ml bottle and has a easy to use pump dispenser. One pump gives a good amount and enough product for the entire hair. The primer itself is a smooth, non-drip, white lotion. It doesn’t feel sticky and it dries into the hair quickly. It has the most absolutely gorgeous, beautiful scent and the pretty smell lingers on the hair, making it smell lovely and fresh. The scent is definitely one of my favourite things about the product, it smells so nice and makes a great little perfume for the hair.

It’s pretty simple to use, I just shampoo and condition my hair, and then apply one or two pumps to my towel-dried hair as it works best on wet hair. I only apply to my mid-lengths and tips to prevent my roots from looking too oily and greasy. As I mentioned above one pump is enough but I use two pumps on my bra-strap length hair to be sure my tips are fully saturated with the primer. I especially love how immediate the results are and within seconds of applying it to my damp hair, I can see and feel how much healthier my hair is. My pre-frizzy tips feel much smoother, silkier and less bushy at the ends completely eliminating every inch of frizz. It also gives my hair a nice little shine too which I’m happy about as without the primer, my hair looks so dull. After applying it, I leave my hair to dry naturally and then I use my hair straighteners on a low heat setting just to smooth out my natural waves as I prefer straighter hair, my hair feels so light and the product doesn’t weigh down the hair which is a bonus.

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who battles with frizz or damaged hair. With each use the hair will become healthier as unlike most anti frizz lotions which only make the hair appear healthy but not actually doing anything to help repair it, John Frieda’s primer works not only on the outside but deep inside too. I think the Anti-Frizz Primer is 100% worth the money, I don’t think I have anything bad at all to say about it.

Where To Buy?

I got my first bottle in one of my Birchboxes quite a while ago but since then I’ve repurchased it here from Superdrug for £9.99 but I have just checked and it’s on sale for £6.65.

With Love…

Review: Coconut Oil Hair Mask by Majestic Pure

 

Hi ladies…

I was sent a little gift from Majestic Pure to try out a while back, it is their Coconut Hair Mask which comes in a 260 ml tub. The packaging is quite simple, just a transparent tub which doesn’t look overly expensive and it has a white screw top lid. The label has all the ingredients listed (which all seem good & natural) as well as some info about the hair mask and directions on how to use.

c__data_users_defapps_appdata_internetexplorer_temp_saved-images_15578887_10211174247416361_2798003432715764106_n

I struggled to open the tub so I had to use a knife to get it open.

Majestic Pure say the Coconut hair mask is enriched with a formula to hydrate and repair damaged hair, it revitalizes, sparkles long lasting shine and restores softness.

c__data_users_defapps_appdata_internetexplorer_temp_saved-images_15665962_10211174262256732_8594726681568747211_n

The mask itself is a thick, white, non-drip lotion which smells of mild coconut. The lotion spread easily and glided through my roots to my ends coating every strand. I left the mask on for about 5 – 20 minutes each time and on one occasion I left it on my hair over night to give my damaged hair a deep condition.

c__data_users_defapps_appdata_internetexplorer_temp_saved-images_15665432_10211174251856472_6492006493541941443_n

My hair felt thicker and moisturised after drying with a hair-dryer and it smelled nice and clean although I didn’t notice my hair being any shinier or glossier but it did feel healthier and soft. I do recommend giving hair a good rinse after using it as there were a few times my hair felt like it still had product in it, so I made sure I rinsed the mask off completely.

c__data_users_defapps_appdata_internetexplorer_temp_saved-images_15590434_10211174265416811_345642812371210700_n

I would use the Coconut Hair Mask again but it is not one of my favourite hair masks that I have used. I had an Argan Oil Hair Mask which was from Majestic Pure also and I felt the argan oil one nourished and repaired my damaged hair more than the coconut one.

Review: Divine Shine Coconut Hair Oil – Inecto Naturals

Hey chicks.

A while back I reviewed a Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner from Inecto Naturals and I liked the brand so much I thought I would give their Divine Shine Coconut Hair Oil a whirl to see if it is any good for my damaged hair. Inecto say they don’t use unnecessary chemicals in their products and they claim to be vegan friendly, saying their products themselves are made cruelty free and are not tested on animals.

fghghj.png

First impressons:

The oil comes in a 100 ml clear recyclable bottle which looks simple and fresh. It has a anti-leak pump dispenser with a lid which is always good especially if you’re accident prone like me and always knocking things over. The oil is itself is clear and transparent, doesn’t leave a sticky feeling on the hands and it smells divine like coconuts. I think the bottle looks cool and attractive and I love Inecto’s packaging and their way with words on the back of the label.

The ingredients contain:

Cyclopentasiloxane, dimethiconal, Dimethicone, Bis-Hydroxy/Methoxy Amodimethicone, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Parfum.

Results:

After washing and towel drying my damaged hair I pumped a little oil out of the bottle into my hands and ran my fingers throughout my mid lengths and ends before styling with a hair dryer. Once dried, my dry hair felt smooth, silky soft and my frizzy ends were tamed and no longer noticeable. The oil left my hair looking very shiny and glossy and it literally felt like silk compared to how it usually feels. Not only that, my hair was left smelling absolutely delicious and the coconut scent of the oil is to die for. I love how it smells and I found it lingers too and doesn’t fade too quickly. I did notice that when I used too much of the oil and especially near my roots, my hair looked greasy and oily, so I do recommend using sparingly, using a little each time and adding more if needed as well as keeping the oil away from the roots. I also use the oil on dry hair for added nourishment and shine and it works just as well on dry hair as it does on wet hair. I do recommend this coconut oil and I believe it is a bargain, priced super cheap at around £1.29 from Home Bargains.

Love Yas,

DIY Natural Beauty Project: Black Tea Hair Rinse To Speed Up Hair Growth & Add A Glossy Shine

I love a good cuppa I do.

To be completely honest I’m a bit of a tea tank and I can easily drink twenty cups a day. The last 3 weeks I have not only been sippin’ on cuppa’s but I have been using my teabags to make my own DIY Black Tea Hair Rinse to see if it can help reduce shedding of the hair, stimulate hair growth and thickness as well as enchance shine as I long for long, full and thick hair and I regret getting the chop.

You must have seen all these miracle hair growing shampoo’s that prevent hair falling out and helps to make your own hair grow back thicker, fuller and longer? Let’s take the well-known, Alpecin for example. Well basically, Alpecin is very rich in caffeine and well, Black Tea is extremely rich in caffeine too and it doesn’t contain any nasty ingredients or chemicals that some hair brand dump in their shampoo’s. Ït is completely natural and a lot cheaper than those miracle shampoo’s.

Cup of freshly brewed black tea
Cup of freshly brewed black tea in a plain white china cup and saucer surrounded by scattered unused teabags

What You Need?

5 TEABAGS (just your regular PG Tips, Tetley, Yorkshire Tea, etc…)

A LARGE BOWL (A plastic dishbowl is perfect or just anything to put the tea into and then pour over your head.)

HOT KETTLE WATER(To steep & brew the teabags and extract all the goodness of the black tea into the hot water).

Let’s start:

1: Soak the teabags in hot kettle water for a few hours or for best results over night. (Don’t add sugar, don’t add milk, he he.)

2: When the Teabags have been steeped for 12-24 hours, take each teabag and squeeze all of the excess liquid back into the bowl. We want every drop!

3: Don’t be alarmed by this step. Its kind of similar to washing your hair in the sink, Ha. So. dip your head into the bowl leaving it submerged in the water for about 5 minutes and completely saturate your scalp and hair with the Black Tea. Or if you can’t be bothered dunking your head in a bowl for five minutes, simply pour the Black Tea water over your whole head, then follow with a shower cap – just make sure you do it in the bathroom otherwise you’ll have a puddle to clean up. Wear old clothes too. Tea stains are a bitch to get out.

4: When the five minutes of dunking is up, don’t squeeze out the excess water from your hair. Clamp your hair up into a loose bun and put on a shower cap, keeping a face towel near to wipe any black tea that falls down onto your face.

5: Leave the black tea water on your hair for a whole hour, then rinse and follow up with a nourishing conditioner.

6: Results will not be visible straight away but you will definitely see results by doing a Black Tea Rinse, week by week. Add the Black Tea Rinse into your beauty regime, its worth a try and the only thing your losing is teabags, hey. Forget the expensive ‘miracle’ shampoo’s. Black Tea works just as well.

REMEMBER: DONT USE HOT WATER ON YOUR HEAD. LET THE WATER COOL

Little tip: Keep the used tea bags and recycle them for your eyes to reduce dark circles, irritation and puffiness… They help to soothe and brighten your eyes too.

15095043_10210815863096977_2170938668382143734_n

My results after 3 weeks:

So, once a week I have been doing a Black Tea Rinse on my hair and so far I am very pleased with the results. My hair always feels soft, smooth and looks shiny afterwards and by week 3 of doing weekly rinses, I can feel how much thicker my hair is becoming and I can definitely see less hair loss after brushing.

You guys should give this a whirl, you probably have teabags at home so you can start right now if you wish. Let me know if you guys try it and continue to use it weekly. I’d love to see your results.

I’d love to hear some of your favourite DIY beauty Projects which you have found on the internet?

I adore crafting my own beauty recipes, so you guys will be doing me a BIG favour if you share some of your ‘makes’ below? I might even post about them on here.

Beauty On A Budget | Poundland Bargain | Revitalising Coconut Water Shampoo & Conditioner from Xpel Hair Care – Review

 

Hey hey,

Hope you are all having a gorge day so far! I’ve got another review for you beauties today – I’ve been trying out a new shampoo & conditioner so I thought I’d let you all know about them.

I’ve been using the Revitalising Coconut Water Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner for the last two weeks now and it is the first time I have ever used any products from Xpel Hair Care, to be honest I had never heard of the brand before. I bought them both at Poundland for 99p each and when I noticed ‘Coconut Water’ written on the bottles, you know I just had to buy them. I love everything coconut – it has helped my psoriasis and skin out a lot so I have got myself a little obsession with it!

jnjkml,.png

First Impressions:

I think the bottles look so much more expensive than they are. The shampoo was only 99p and the conditioner was another 99p, which you really can’t complain about, can you. If these were priced at, say, £4.99 each I reckon I would still purchase them, I’m a sucker for coconut ha ha. The bottles look good and there is 400ml of product in each bottle so they are pretty good sized for the price.

hjn

They do have some questionable ingredients in them and I do try my best to use natural products so my scalp psoriasis and skin doesn’t become irritated but what the hell. I will do some research on the ingredients list and update the post once I have read up on each one.

14329904_10210263861257276_6279880210087623970_n

What I thought?

The shampoo itself has a clear, runny consistency and it smells slightly of coconut. It lathers well but I found that I needed to use a lot of it to remove all oil and grease from my hair. When washing I didn’t feel as though my hair and scalp was being cleansed and the shampoo lathered more at the ends of my hair than it did at the roots so I applied more to my roots than was probably needed. Luckily though, when I washed the shampoo off my scalp felt cleansed and my hair was sleek to touch and didn’t have a rough texture.

hjj

The conditioner is a basic white colour which looked a bit on the cheap side although once I applied it to my hair, it coated each strand well and spread easily. It wasn’t runny or drippy and it felt moisturising and hydrating. Like the shampoo it has a light coconut scent although the shampoo smells a bit stronger than the conditioner. When I washed the conditioner off, my hair felt conditioned and I was happy that my usually tatty hair was easy to comb. I’ve been leaving my hair to dry naturally and it felt soft to touch once it had dried and easy to style. My hair was also shinier too, I was happy about that. There wasn’t really a coconut scent left on my hair afterwards but it did smell nice and clean so that will do me.

Would I buy again?

Overall, I’m pleased with the shampoo and conditioner and I would buy them both again, they aren’t the best I have ever used but I did like them and they are a bargain at 99p each!

I really do love my shopping sprees at the likes of Poundland, B&M and Home Bargains and it is truly amazing what you can get on the cheap in these saver stores.

What’s the best beauty bargains you guys have picked up from Poundland?

Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo (Mega Instant) – Review

Ladies,

I’ve another dry shampoo review for you all!

After my review of Herbal Essences Clearly Naked – Dry Shampoo a few days ago, (which I really didn’t rate that much), I thought I might as well post a little review of Aussie’s Miracle Dry Shampoo (Mega Instant) from Aussie’s MEGA collection which I’ve had sitting in my bathroom for absolutely ages now!

 

All about it:

‘Did not hear the alarm? running late? hair got the greasies? Stop your worries. This Aussie mega instant miracle dry shampoo you are now clutching is your saviour. No shower required. Just a burst of mega instant and a bit of brush-out brings instant, just-washed Aussie-ness and fragrance to your hair. Now if only you had not put two mismatching shoes on. It contains jojoba seed extract that was used for centuries by the indigenous Australians as it was believed to naturally condition hair.’ – Aussie

13891810_10209883521029008_1258030768596480248_n13873101_10209883502548546_6854808650892910822_n13920918_10209883502588547_6664406314260129943_n

First impressions:

The bottle is your typical Aussie hair product, looks wise, and it has the same Aussie design as all of their other products. It is a small 65ml aerosol bottle, much smaller than any others I have used with less product but worry not, there is also a bigger 180ml bottle available too.

13912559_10209883351744776_8820601297704415916_n

Another thing – it smells absolutely gorgeous. 😍

Pros: 👌🏻

It really does smell divine, it is without a doubt the lovliest, sweetest scent that I have ever came across and it makes my hair smell so nice.

The scent has lingered on my hair for quite a while too so it is definately long-lasting.

It has been enriched with Jojoba Seed Extract.

Makes hair feel soft.

After spraying my roots, there was no white powdery substance left on my roots like other dry shampoo’s tend to leave.

Cons: 👊🏻

Although I love how this smells, the gorgeous, lovely scent gives me a headache thanks to the added synthetic fragrance / artificial parfum.

Contains Alcohol Denat which can dry your hair out.

Contains silicones.

Isn’t the greatest for removing oil and grease.

Ingredients:

Alcohol Denat, Butane, Propane, Isobutane, Tapioca Starch, Aqua, Silica, Parfum, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Hexyl Cinnamal, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Limonene, Linalool, Benzyl Salicylate

Results:

The bottle I have is only a small 65 ml so if you use dry shampoo’s often this will last you no time, you would be better off purchasing the 180ml bottle. I only use dry shampoo’s once in a blue moon so this has lasted me quite a while. I wouldn’t say it was the best dry shampoo for soaking up oil or refreshing greasy hair, I have had better results with Batiste and I do recommend their dry shampoo’s for oily/greasy hair. It did soak a little bit of oil up but not enough to make it appear freshly washed, it was fine for in between washes but if you left your hair for a whole week without washing and used this to control the oil, I reckon your roots would still look greasy.

I do like this dry shampoo mainly because it smells soooo good and leaves my hair feeling soft! It made my hair feel silky and smooth, it also didn’t make my hair any thicker so I think this would work well for girls with very thick or curly hair but not for those with fine hair because it may leave your hair looking flat. My hair didn’t feel dry afterwards either unlike others which leave hair feeling stiff like you have used a whole can of hair spray on it, so hair is still manageable and doesn’t have that ‘talcy’ feel to it.

Now I really like this dry shampoo but because I have fragrance sensitivities (allergic to some artificial fragrances/parfums), the lovely scent causes me to have banging, violent headaches which is a real shame because I do like it and it works well on my hair type. I really do love how it smells but I really don’t like the headaches I get after using it.

Will I use again?

That is a tough one! I would say yes, 100%, but I can’t even look at the bottle without a headache coming on. If you’re not effected by artificial fragrance, great but if you’re like me and can’t handle some artificial fragrances then I’d look for another. So, unfortunately I don’t think I will buy this again. I think I’ll stick with Batiste’s Original Dry Shampoo for the time being.

Does anybody else have fragrance sensitivity? It sucks, right!?

Love

Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo – Review

Hey Chicks,

Last week I was sent Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo to review and test out on my greasy little head! The Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo has natural Tapioca in it which is a starch that has been extracted from Cassava Root and helps to absorb excess oil in the hair so I was very keen to try it out.

First impressions of the bottle was good. It is a tall 118ml white aerosol bottle which has greyish-silver writing and it features a pop of green with a picture of a peppermint plant. The bottle looks fresh, simple and attractive. It costs about £2.99 for a 118ml bottle which I think is very good value for money!

13912559_10209883351744776_8820601297704415916_n

I really like how it smells too. I have fragrance sensitivity so I often get violent headaches after using products with artificial fragrance in but I had no problem with this one, thankfully! It smells mildly minty and fresh thanks to the Peppermint Oil (Menthol Piperta) and Mentha Arvensis Leaf Oil which has been added to the dry shampoo

Mentha Arvensis

Ingredients:

Alcohol Denat – Butane – Propane – Isobutane – Tapioca Starch – Aqua – Silica – Polymethylsesquioxane – Parfum – Limonene – Linalool – Citronellol – Menthol Piperta Oil – Menthol – Mentha Arvensis Leaf Oil

As you can see it contains no parabens and no colourants which is great! Herbal Essences also say that it contains zero silicone which I found a bit confusing as the ingredients list say it contains polymethylsesquioxane and silica! I’m pretty sure both are silicones? I may be wrong!

PROS

It smells really nice

Eliminates odours and refreshes the hair and scalp

It makes hair smell and appear freshly washed

Thickens hair

Soaks up grease and oil

Contains 0% parabens and 0% colourants

CONS

Contains artificial fragrance (parfum). Fragrance is used to make products smell better. It works to cover the scent of other ingredients, which may have strong chemical scents.

So, if you only use natural beauty products or if you have fragrant or chemical sensitivities, this dry shampoo is not for you.

Hair felt like I had hair lacquer and talcum powder on it and felt heavy

Hair didn’t feel any softer after using

Proctor & Gamble the manufactures of Herbal Essences test their products on animals. I am unsure if this dry shampoo has been tested on animals but I would imagine it not to be cruelty free, which is a shame.

 

RESULTS:

I am not the biggest fan of dry shampoo and I rarely use them to be totally honest. I only tend to use dry shampoo when I am going somewhere and I haven’t got time to wash my hair.

My sister made plans to go out for food yesterday and I often try to leave my hair unwashed in the hope my natural oils will help repair my damaged hair so I hadn’t washed my hair in three days so it was a little on the flat, stinky and greasy side. I thought it would be the perfect time to try this dry shampoo out and two minutes later my hair was done and dusted! Dry shampoo is definitely is a time saver, if I hadn’t of used the dry shampoo the night would have been over by the time I had washed, dried and then styled my hair. My sister is the impatient type who hates waiting round so I literally had no time to wash my hair without getting moaned at to hurry up, ha-ha I must say she was shocked when I was ready in ten minutes compared my usual time of 3 hours so I think she loves the Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo more than I do!

After using this I did find my hair felt less soft and it restricted movement of my hair a little bit making it feel heavy and less flowy as usual. It felt as if I had applied hair lacquer all over my hair and then brushed it out, so it didn’t feel as smooth as I’d of liked. My boyfriend asked if I had put talcum powder in my hair so it must have felt pretty dry for him to notice as he never notices anything usually! He also said my hair smelled nice too, cutie! As soon as I sprayed my hair all over I did notice it thicken straight away, my hair felt so thick and it looked volumized but it appeared frizzy too so I had to use my hair straighteners to smooth it out a bit and make it look less static. After styling my hair looked thick and smelled lush but I didn’t like how my hair felt, it was obvious that I had some kind of product in my hair and it didn’t feel as soft.

Will I buy again?

Probably not. It is cheap enough and its perfect if you want thicker hair on the cheap but it is not a favourite of mine, even though it did work. I will finish the rest of the bottle off but I very much doubt I would buy this again as there have been other dry shampoo’s from Batiste and Aussie that I have liked better.

Where to buy?

Right here -> BOOTS – £2.99

Have you ever tried this dry shampoo? What did you think of it?

Thanks for stopping by on Katie Rose Loves!

L’Oreal Paris Preference | MOUSSE ABSOLUE | #500 Natural Medium Brunette | Hair Dye Review

Hey Girls! xxx

Crazy hair lady has struck again!

I dyed my dark hair back to platinum blonde after swearing I would never bleach my hair again! I just can’t help it, I think I might just be a serial hair dyer! I always bleach my dark hair back to blonde on impulse (damaging it in the process), and then eventually I dye my blonde hair back to brunette again, also on impulse. It’s a vicious circle. LOL! I need to find a colour I like and stick to it because changing it up all the time is taking its toll on my locks.

So, here I am once again! I’m bored with my blonde hair and I feel it’s doing nothing for me at all, so, I’ve decided to dye it back to brunette. After speculating for weeks and trying hard to decide on a colour I really liked I went ahead and bought a box dye yesterday. I didn’t want to go as dark as I used to be (jet black) so instead I chose a medium brown which is close to my natural colour.

The dye I chose was L’Oreal Paris Preference MOUSSE ABSOLUE in the shade #500 (Natural Medium Brunette) which I bought from Home Bargains for just £1.99!
Yep, £1.99!
13419042_1579494305676586_8726315127350446685_n13458506_1579494302343253_5891524084572937828_o13403762_1579494309009919_3209075989262329466_o
These dyes are priced between £10-£15 everywhere else so I believe I got my self a bargain! Thanks HB – I loveeeee you! If you’re thinking of buying one of these dyes, go to Home Bargains – save a few quid! They have a few other shades available too.

Included In The Box

• two chamber system with lid
• nozzle / precision diffuser
• 2 pairs of black gloves (slim fit)
• satin touch conditioner with UV filters
• instruction leaflet
13419261_1579462265679790_7357760726534196949_n

 What I Liked About This Dye

The MOUSSE ABSOLUE dyes have two unique chambers, (think of two aerosols stuck together with a nozzle on top), I’m guessing one ‘aerosol’ is the creme colour and the other is the developer. It’s quite different to the bottle dyes I usually use which has an applicator tip and requires you to mix bottle 1 and bottle 2 together, blah, blah. Too much effort for me, ha!
With these you simply put the nozzle (precision diffuser) on top of the two chamber system, shake, shake, shake, squirt the mousse onto your hand and apply it to your hair. It requires little effort, so I loved this dye straight away for that reason alone, it allows me to be lazy!
13442249_1579462419013108_4196281256641586122_n
These are the only re-usable box dyes that I’ve ever seen. I’m impressed. They can be used for a full head application or to touch up your roots and if there is any un-used product left over, instead of binning it, you can store it away and use it again the next time you re-do your roots. Amazing!!!
I also think they have a lot more product inside too, well, compared to normal bottle dyes. If you have short hair, one box will give you two full head applications. If you have medium length hair, (like me), one box will give you one full head application and a root touch-up. If you have long hair, one box will give you one full head application. So us shorties and middies are lucky, hey!

What I Didn’t Like

I found with this dye it takes more product than other dyes to completely saturate the hair for an intense colour. The fact I had lots of blonde spots here and there after dying it, annoyed me. I might have applied it wrong or never left it on long enough but after using two boxes in one sitting, carefully applying the moose to every strand and massaging it in, you would think it would be hard to miss bits of hair out. I’ve also noticed some area’s are a little bit ashy (especially at the ends) but I’m hopeful that another application will correct this.
Maybe it was because I was so light beforehand too. I have noticed in the past when dying blonde hair darker that the first application is always patchy and uneven in places. Blonde hair going brunette holds colour more and looks best when you dye it twice on two separate occasions, so this is what I’m going to do.

Before & After

Verdict:

I love it! I think I might have finally found my colour! My skin looks brighter, my green eyes stand out more and I’ve finally realised that I suit brunette hair much more than blonde hair. I should have listened to my Mother! He-he! It is the closest I’ve ever been to my natural colour – (last time I seen my natural colour was when I was about 12) and it really does look natural and classier than the blonde colour I had.
I will need to do another application to make my hair colour more vibrant and I do need to touch up some blonde spots that I accidentally missed out but overall, the base colour is lovely and I’m happy with it. After washing the dye off, I did find my hair a little dry and coarse afterwards but nothing a bit of argan oil & coconut oil hasn’t handled.
I am definitely going to keep this colour! I’ll be stocking up on MOUSSE ABSOLUE from Home Bargains just incase they sell out or stop stocking them. I don’t fancy paying near enough £15 somewhere else for a hair dye even if I do really, really like it. I’m going to get myself another two boxes, reapply one on my hair and dye my hair extensions with the other one.
I really like it so I do recommend it. 🙂

Love

Katie… xo

About Me

I love make-up but I have a skin disorder called psoriasis which restricts me from using some beauty products on my skin. I started this blog to kinda be a guinea pig for other psoriasis sufferers, testing beauty products, treatments and natural remedies for the skin. Having psoriasis has affected me in so many ways, dropping out of beauty school is one. Boooo! I’m trying my best to use natural, organic beauty products in replacement to those full of harmful chemicals – so I write a lot about natural and gentle beauty products. My aim is to become 100 % vegan one day. I’ve tried so many times and it’s pretty tough. I’m a big nature and animal lover and a member of WWF, Dogs Trust and RSPB. – I have two Patterdale Terrier dogs named Bella & Marley A.K.A The ASBO dogs. As well as make-up, hair and skincare I love to blog about DIY crafts and sewing projects inspired by Pinterest.

That’s all for now! Dont want to bore you anymore. Haha!

If I could be any animal…

 It would be the wolf. I’m fascinated by them. There was a time I wanted to be a zoologist and I was going to pick the wolf as my main animal to study. So yep, if I could be any animal I would be a wolf. 👌 Crazy, fierce and beautiful!

Dry, Damaged & Frizzy Hair? | Inecto’s Coconut Shampoo & Conditoner Are Miracle Workers (Review)

I bought some Inecto Coconut Hair Shampoo & Conditioner a few days ago and I’ve just absolutely fell in love with it! I’ve never tried any of Inecto’s products before, I’ve never even heard of them until now but I had a little voice in my head screaming ‘BUY, BUYY, BUYYY’ while out shopping yesterday. I had to do as I was told didn’t I and I’m so grateful to that little voice now that I have tried them!


What I’ve Been Using

I’ve been using the Inecto Naturals Super Nourishing Coconut Shampoo & Super Moisturising Coconut Conditioner to rescue my damaged, dry and brittle hair.

6tag_300116-092856


My Review:

The packaging of the shampoo and conditioner instantly grabbed my attention – I just love the crisp, clean, and simple white bottles because they look so fresh and modern. I was shocked to find that they were only £1.19 each as they were pretty good sized 500 ml bottles and look very expensive.

WP_20160130_09_27_56_Pro

I love how my hair looks and feels after using them! My hair hasn’t looked / felt as healthy as it does now for a long, long time. It is so silky to touch and looks so much healthier. Usually an hour or two later after styling my hair, it becomes tatty and coarse to touch. My hair smells absolutely amazing too and is so shiny and smooth with not a split end in sight – I can’t praise them enough. I’m definitely going to buy the Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner again and I’m really looking forward to trying the Inecto Argon Oil Shampoo/Conditioner too as well as other products made by Inecto.

As mentioned above the shampoo & conditioner cost me around £2.40 for both which I think is a bargain price – I would definitely purchase them both if they where more expensive to buy! I think they’re amazing and they’ve done an amazing job at moisturising my hair so I have put them into My Favourite Products.

Apparently, they are not tested on animals (cruelty free), suitable for vegans and contain no PARABENS.

WP_20160130_09_28_18_Pro


Recommended For

I’d recommend Inecto Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner to anyone and everyone! Especially those with damaged dry hair who will certainly benefit from the serious moisturising ability. I’d also recommend to anyone who likes to use quality hair products but for a reasonable price too!


Where To Buy

I got mine from Home Bargains for around £1.20 each. You can get some on eBay and Amazon too. Check out Inecto‘s website to find a local stockist near you.


 

Have any of you tried Inecto products before?

Thanks for reading chicks !

Love…

Pro:Voke Hair Colour Remover | Extra Strength | Review ❤

 

Hey Gorgeous Girls (& Boys!) 😘

 

red-lipstick-kiss

 

Today, I’m going to show you how I got on with the Pro:Voke Hair Colour Remover (Extra Strength). Hair colour remover’s are great for removing previous hair colour and box dye colours as well as fixing hair that has gone wrong!

6tag_180116-050246

 

A Little Hair History ❤

The last time I coloured my hair was August 2015. I basically went from jet black hair to platinum blonde in just seven days. Before I bleached my hair, I had long, luscious locks that were shiny and healthy but being the impatient, lunatic that I am, I ended up with shorter, frizzier and damaged hair. I was also left skint, ha-ha. 😂

After spending over £80 on COLOR B4, bleach powders, developers and box dyes as well as making two separate trips to the hairdressers – going blonde in a week must have cost me around £300. 👊

Yeah, I did manage to get blonde hair from black but because it was porous and a very damaged it didn’t look as nice as it would of if it was healthy.

AdobePhotoshopExpress_ac103b1fd495466f9d2d556771178a75
Light Brown

 

I put a ‘light brown’ on over the blonde but after getting bored of it I put a ‘natural black’ box dye over the light brown and decided to try and get my hair healthy again.

AdobePhotoshopExpress_5fa24bc4d3fd43349ae6e723e10af1eb

Fast forward to January 2016 and I haven’t dyed it since the natural black box dye I put on in August. Yesterday, my hair was kind of faded black with blonde/grey streaks in various places. Instead of putting another black dye on my hair, I’ve decided to try to remove the black colour and dye it a medium brown / dark brown instead.

WP_20160118_15_51_03_Pro
After using Pro:Voke Hair Colour Remover

Pro:Voke Hair Colour Remover ❤

After shopping for a hair colour remover, I came across Pro:Voke Hair Colour Remover (Extra Strength) in Home Bargains. It was £3.99. I did look for COLOR B4 or Colour Oops but they never had any. So I thought I would give Pro:Voke a try.

Compared to the more popular brands, (COLOR OOPS, COLOR B4) The Pro:Voke Hair Colour Remover is much cheaper with the more popular ones costing around £10-£15. CON MERCHANTS! 😂

At the time I did think the Pro:Voke Colour Remover wouldn’t have worked as well as the others, simply because it was cheaper and I’d never heard of it before.

After doing my research before using it, I found out Pro:Voke also make the Touch Of Silver Shampoo’s & Toners (a.k.a Purple Shampoo) so I was a little more confident using it as Touch Of Silver shampoo’s are brilliant. Especially for blonde hair gone wrong!

Inside The Box ❤

Activator Bottle (1)
Remover Bottle (2)
Finisher Bottle (3)
Gloves
Instructions

WP_20160117_21_25_02_Pro

What You Will Need ❤

❤ A Comb 💇
❤ A Plastic Carrier Bag or Clingfilm 🏬
❤ A Wool Hat 👒
❤ Scissors ✂

How To Use ❤

Using it is very easy, the instructions are clear and simple to understand, mixing and application to your hair is easy too.

You simply pour bottle (1) into bottle (2) and shake. You then cut off the tab of bottle (2) and apply to hair.

Wrap your hair up with the plastic bag / Clingfilm and put the hat on your head, over the bag. Leave on for 30minutes and rinse, rinse, rinse!

Apply half of bottle (3) to your hair and work up a lather. Leave the mixture on your hair for 5 minutes and rinse, rinse, rinse then repeat the last step – applying the other half of bottle (3) lathering, leaving on for 5 minutes and rinsing. It’s fairly simple to use and if the instructions written in the leaflet (included in the box) are followed, things should go to plan!

(The instruction leaflet doesn’t say to put clingfilm and a hat on, but doing this will help to keep the heat in, making the mixture reach its full potential.)

What I Liked 😍

I just liked the fact it worked! Ha-ha. ☺

I am going to put another one in a few days so hopefully it will go even lighter.

I also liked how it was much cheaper than other brands but it still did the same job.

You may know that I love my bargains and I believe the Pro:Voke Hair Colour Remover is just that! So I like that too! ☺

What I Didn’t Like 👎

IT SMELLS LIKE SHIT! 😂

It would be much more pleasant if it smelled pretty, but all hair colour removers smell eggy for some reason so its nothing to worry about. You will need a clothes peg for your nose! 😂

After 20 minutes of the Colour Remover being on my hair, my hair looked so light and I was happy because I loved the colour, it was like a dark caramel blonde – but when washed off and dried, although it was lighter – it was not caramel blonde. The end results were more like a medium golden brown. Got my hopes up a little bit, didn’t I! 😢😂

I also hated how my hair felt after washing the finisher (3) out of my hair. It felt awful and I had to take extra care when combing so my hair didn’t snap or break. I found that half drying my hair, first (with a hairdryer) made it more easier to comb. (Once it was combed and dried though, it looked okay and felt smooth and soft.)

Would I Recommend It To A Friend?

Yes. I would also use it again myself. It is cheaper than the others but works just as well if not better. Sometimes the saying ‘you get what you pay for’ isn’t true!

Final Thought

After having black hair – the Pro:Voke Hair Colour Remover has taken me to a medium brown. My colour is not as light as the light brown I had before I dyed it black but it is noticeably lighter. I actually like the colour it is now, which is close to my natural colour.

My hair did feel crap after putting the Finisher (3) on but I’m suprised at how healthy and shiny it looks after styling.

I think I will use Pro:Voke Hair Colour Remover in the future in replacement to COLOUR B4.

Where To Buy ❤

I got mine from Home Bargains for £3.99. If you haven’t got a HB store near you – here’s a link to buy online.

Buy on Pauls Hair World – £3.99


Thanks For Reading! ☺

Lots Of Love

Katie ❤
