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!


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.


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.


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.


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?

Coconut Milk Body Scrub from Pure Body Naturals – Review


This week, I’ve put my coffee scrubs aside to try out the Coconut Milk Body Scrub from Pure Body Naturals who are another natural, cruelty-free brand based in America. They have a huge collection of fabulous skincare products, hair care products, essential oils and beauty accessories and they are fast becoming one of my favourite brands.


The Coconut Milk Body Scrub is rich in fatty acids and vitamins A, B and E, leaving your skin feeling nourished. Dead Sea Salt is a natural exfoliator which removes a build up of dead skin cells allowing fresh new skin to appear, making your complexion look amazing. It helps to protect skin from UV radiation and it also reduces symptoms of psoriasis, eczema and other skin conditions. The scrub is full to the brim with natural ingredients and fast-absorbing oils which all soften and moisturise the skin without irritating it. It can be used on both the face and body and because of the high content of oils and vitamins it works brilliantly as an amazing anti-ageing treatment, helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks to the coconut milk it has a fabulous creamy texture with the slightest hint of coconut.


The ingredients are:

Coconut Milk, Sea Salt, Almond Oil, Safflower Oil, Sunflower Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Dead Sea Salt, Vitamin E.

What I thought?

I love coconut beauty products and this scrub makes me love coconut even more! As you all probably know already, I have psoriasis (very mild at the mo), so I’m super prone to dry skin especially on my knees and elbows. I haven’t noticed any change to my psoriasis just yet though. It hasn’t cleared my skin up but I suppose it’s still early days, eh! It has removed a few scales and softened my dry skin tremendously, it feels great! To use, you just simply scoop a bit of the coconut salt into your hands and apply it to wet skin, gently massaging in circular motions. After exfoliating and removing dead skin cells my skin feels so clean and soft and I slather loads of Fractioned Coconut Oil all over my body to make it super smooth and extra moisturised.

Even though it is a small 340g tub I reckon you will get 20+ full body treatments out of one tub, if not more. It all depends how much you apply to your skin each time and how often you use it. I have used it 4-5 times in a week and as you can see there is still lots of scrub left in the tub.

What I love the most about the Coconut Milk Body Scrub is that it contains absolutely nothing but natural, pure ingredients so I don’t need to worry about artificial ingredients which make my psoriasis a million times worse.

I will definitely be buying more when I run out!

Where to buy?

Amazon UK: here. £14.95 | American girls can get it on the Pure Body Naturals website.

Review: Art Naturals – Arabica Coffee Scrub – 100% Natural & Cruelty Free

I’ve another skincare product from Art Naturals here who are a natural skincare brand based in the US although they do sell their products worldwide. All of the products they sell are cruelty free, natural and contain no harsh ingredients Art Naturals have kindly gifted me the Arabica Coffee Scrub which looks good and smells absolutely gorgeous! As soon as I opened the tub I got a lovely whiff of rich, luxurious coffee and it smells good enough to eat. I would imagine you could eat it too as the ingredients are simple, organic, natural and pure.

(Please don’t try to eat it, just incase, LOL!)


ABOUT”Wake up sleepy skin with ArtNaturals’ Arabica Coffee Body Scrub! Once or twice a week, get your morning commutin’ as the invigorating properties of caffeine and cacao extract join forces with the exfoliating properties of coffee grounds and Dead Sea Salt. Add in the calm of olive and sweet almond oil plus shea butter and you’re ready to fight traffic and look fabulous. Our 100 percent natural Coffee Scrub revs up facial skin to reduce age spots and even out skin tone, while it helps heal acne, rosacea and eczema as it exfoliates. Dead Sea salts combine with Kona coffee, rich in caffeine. Caffeine’s antioxidants fight free radicals, reducing the appearance of the dreaded cellulite on legs, arms, tummy, and bottom. The powerful antioxidants also help rid skin of bacteria and harmful chemicals while reducing swelling and puffiness.” – Art Naturals 


 INGREDIENTS: Dead Sea Salt, Demeria Sugar, Organic Kona Coffee, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Sweet Almond Oil, Organic Grape Seed Oil, Coffee Arabica Seed Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Cacao Powder & Coconut Shaving.

HOW TO USE‘Gently massage scrub in a circular motion for a minute or two in the shower, rinse well. Can be used as a full body scrub. Avoid using around delicate eye area. For best results use every 3-4 days.’


VERDICTI have psoriasis so my skin was very dry before I started using the scrub – especially my elbows, knees and ankles. Luckily my psoriasis is very mild at the moment and not as bad as it used to be but my skin has still been quite rough to touch and lacking in moisture. The last month or so I have used absolutely nothing but a gentle soap on my skin. I get a lot of skincare products sent to me to review, so every now and again I like to give my skin a break and quit skincare altogether. So this is the first product I have used on my skin in ages and I’ve been using it every day for the past week when I bathe or shower. I noticed results after only using the scrub once and I was literally in awe at how moisturised my skin was afterwards. I’ve also been using the scrub on my face too and my complexion is looking good. Because the scrub contains Dead Sea Salt, it did sting my psoriasis a little bit when I first applied it to my skin but it was bearable and nothing to worry about. In my opinion, Dead Sea Salt is probably the best thing you can use for psoriasis along with Bentonite Clay and my psoriasis has improved a-lot since I’ve been using this scrub – it looks like it could be clearing up anytime soon! I will continue using this scrub and will def be repurchasing when I run out. I think you will get about 10 full body scrubs out of one 250 ml tub, maybe more if you use less product. I have used mine on five occasions and my tub is half empty so you do get a bit of use out of one tub.

THOUGHTS: I think the scrub is an absolute perfect, 10/10 skincare product and not only does it help to clear up psoriasis it also works for acne, age spots, cellulite, eczema, stretch marks and varicose veins too. I love my natural, cruelty-free skincare products and the Arabica Coffee Scrub is up one of my faves as it has not been tested on animals and it is made with all natural, kind and gentle ingredients – there are no harsh chemicals or artificial ingredients in the scrub so it won’t irritate my sensitive skin or worsen my psoriasis. 1 million percent recommend it!

DISCLOSUREThis product was gifted to me for review purposes.

WHERE TO BUY: You can buy the Arabica Coffee Scrub HERE for £33. It was priced at £12.95 back in 2016 but it seems to have increased dramatically since.

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.


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.


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 !

Sunday Pamper Sesh: Creamy Coconut Face Mask – 7th Heaven (Review)

I remember when I first discovered Montagne Jennesse / 7th Heaven Face Masks’ once upon a time when I was a rebellious teenager. I would buy one every week out of my pocket money, picking a different one each time. ❤

Somewhere along the line, as I got older and started trying out different skincare regimes – I stopped doing my weekly ‘Pamper Sesh’, where I would put a face mask on, some sliced cucumbers on my eyes and chill out in my bedroom listening to Britney Spears on the radio. Those were the days. 😂

I saw the masks again while out shopping today and I thought I’d have a blast from the past and start my ‘Pamper Sesh’ back up again – minus the Britney this time round!

I’ve stocked up on loads of face masks to try out but the first mask I’m going to review is the luxurious ‘Creamy Coconut’ one, which is for tired and dry looking skin. I suppose it would work well on oily / combination skin too.

I decided to try the Creamy Coconut mask out first because I just love coconut. Coconut products have always been a god-send for my skin, especially for treating my psoriasis.



When I first applied it, the mask had a cream like consistency that gradually hardened and dried a little. The dried effect was nothing like that of a clay mask, which I’m not happy about. I really love it when you can’t move your face or smile or frown when wearing a clay mask…. I’m so weird!


The scent of the mask is beautiful as you can imagine. It filled the room with a potent coconut smell and my boyfriend asked why he could smell coconuts all over the house. Ha. DUH.

It is recommended to leave the face mask on for 15 minutes but as I was far too busy chillin’ – I left mine on for about an hour.

Warm water removed it effortlessy and after patting dry, my skin was noticeably smoother and softer to touch as well as being a little bit brighter than beforehand.

I’m definitely going to add the Creamy Coconut mask to my beauty regime. #LOVE ❤

What’s Good

The Creamy Coconut Face Mask is not only filled with pulped coconut but shea butter and ground cocoa too. Packing pure goodness!


My favourite thing about 7th Heaven’s Face Masks’ is that they have not been tested on animals. PETA have also certified that the face masks have been made cruelty free!

I like. 👌

7th Heaven Face Masks are in 15 ml sachets and you could probably get about 2-3 applications from one sachet, all depending how much you apply.

The face masks also do what they claim to. My skin is much more rehydrated and happier now after only one use. The zombie complexion has lessened!

What’s Not Good

I’ve got no complaints! All gravy baby! 👌

Where To Buy

You can buy them everywhere; Asda, Superdrug, Boots, Home & Bargains as well as 7th Heavens’ website – here.

How Much?

I got mine for about £1 each I think. If you’re not from the UK – unlucky you! I’ve heard they are much dearer to buy in Australia and the USA, costing $6 or more which is madness! I suppose we are good for something, eh! 😊

I nearly forgot to mention – after having a browse on their website I noticed that face masks are not the only products made by 7th Heaven, they also do hair masks, men’s face masks, scrubs and soap amongst other things. I really can’t wait to try out the ‘Dead Sea Salt Bust Firming Gel’ (not that I need it – the girls are firm – said the liar 😉) as well as the ‘Peach Oil Cleansing Soap’. LUSH 😍

What’s your favourite 7th Heaven Face Mask girl’s? Which one shall I try next? 😘

Are there blogging gals that have tried any of the other products? Feel free to pop your ‘review links’ below so I can have a read… ❤

Well, dolly-birds, until next time!
