My Glossybox arrived early this month but I’m only just getting around to writing my GB post. I love this months box and the theme for May is all about ‘day dreaming’. This months box has a gorgeous, blissful design with soft, pastel hues and tranquil vibes and contains not one but 5 cruelty-free products. I’m happy about that!

The MAY box has five products, (3 full size, 2 travel size) plus one extra treat and the box contents are worth £40+ which is great as it’s only £13.25 for the subscription. My fave product this month is the Double Effect Make Up Remover from KUESHI and as a tea-a-holic – I absolutely loved the tea from We Are Tea.

Review: Toni & Guy – Leave In Conditioner For Dry, Frizzy & Damaged Hair

I bought some of Toni & Guy’s – Leave In Conditioner a few months ago as I was bleaching my jet black hair to make it a bit lighter and it was starting to look a little dry, brittle and damaged – especially at my ends. I needed a really good leave in conditioner to protect my hair from heat, to control frizz and to repair my damaged, fried hair at the same time. I thought I’d give the Leave In Conditioner a go as I loved the Damage Repair Shampoo & Conditioner so much that I was hoping this would be just as good too.

TONI & GUY LEAVE IN CONDITIONER 1TONI & GUY LEAVE IN CONDITIONER 3

First Impressions:

The Leave In Conditioner from Toni & Guy comes in a 100ml white tube which has a clear, lockable flip-lid. The packaging is okay – nothing to shout about and it has all the relevant info printed on the back. The product itself is a white, creamy lotion which has a smooth texture and the consistency of actual conditioner. It smells lush too! It doesn’t have the cruelty free bunny on the back and it is made by Unilever. The Leave In Conditioner makes hair manageable for all-day nourishment and hydration. It also controls frizz, moisturises dry hair and protects against humidity all day long. It is suitable for all hair types too.

Thoughts:

I absolutely love this stuff girls! I was using Aussie’s spray but I like this one much better. I use the Leave In Conditioner every-time I wash my hair and I love how it smells, absolutely gorgeous. It kinda has a perfumey scent to it but it’s lovely and it makes the hair smell really nice! I use a small amount on towel dried hair and run it through my ends and mid-lengths, avoiding my roots to prepare my hair for styling.. After using my hair feels softer, moisturised and it really works to control frizz as well as acting like a heat protector. I have also used it on dry hair and it does work just as well although I do prefer to use it on damp hair.  Since using my hair doesn’t look as damaged as it did and it moisturises the hair instantly and tames frizz, flyaways and damaged ends. It also seems to be repairing my damaged ends a little too and I love how it protects my hair from heat so I’m not damaging my hair as much when blow-drying, straightening, curling, etc….

I love this Leave In conditioner – it’s probably one of the best I have ever used and I will defo be buying it again when the bottle is empty. I’ve had mine for a couple of months now and I still have lots left so it is long-lasting too. I also use Toni & Guy’s Damaged Repair Shampoo & Conditioner which I recommend using if your hair is really damaged or over-bleached.

Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money.


Where To Buy: You can buy some HERE on Amazon UK for £5.15. You can also pick a bottle up from the website, Boots or Superdrug.

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.

hhjj

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?

Love Katie x

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.

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…
