I always try to use a leave in conditioner because the ends of my hair get so extremely dry, even when I’m not using heat on them. I decided to give Aussies Miracle Hair Insurance a go because it is a bit ore intense than the one I had been previously using, especially since I had been out in the sun.

I use the leave in conditioner mainly concentrated at the ends of my hair, but I do tend to go up the mid lengths also. I use a comb to evenLy disperse it through my hair.

The conditioner says it de tangles and protects and it does! My hair is so much more easy to take after my shower when I use this and my ends have never been softer. It really protects them and prevents them from splitting.

It’s a really lightweight conditioner and it doesn’t weigh down your hair or leave it feeling sticky. As I only use it on the ends and lengths,, it doesn’t make it more any more greasy which I’m always wary of.

As with all Aussie products the scent of this is amazing and when you use it and it’s sunny, the heat intensifies the smell and you just smell drop deep amazing.

I really love this conditioner and recommend it to anyone with weak, distressed hair that needs a bit of TLC.

I can speak for most of the girls in my house and say that these products are amazing!

I have quite oily roots and dry ends, so finding a shampoo and conditioner that worked well for both of those problems can be a bit of a nightmare. I’m not going to lie, when I saw these sitting in the bathroom I was totally apprehensive about using them because of the oily roots problem. I decided one day to give them a go and I just can’t get enough.

They both work well on their own but I find that if I use them as a set it’s more beneficial. My mam bought them in a chemist that’s in our town and they were €1.49 each for 250ml so it’s a complete steal.

The products contain Moroccan Argan oil but also silk proteins and say they leave your hair shiny and soft. I really noticed a difference in my hair after the first use. From root to tip it was so silky and the frizz was tamed! I only use a little bit of conditioner on the bare ends of my hair, sometimes working up to around mid length if I need extra moisture. I lather up my shampoo twice so I get a good clean. It doesn’t make my hair more oily which I was terrified of., it has actually helped the condition of my roots too!

The shampoo lathers up really well and doesn’t take ages to do so. The conditioner washes out really easily too, which is a good quality. The scent is amazing. It reminds me of being on holiday for some reason.

I can’t get enough of this pair and if you can find it you should try it out!

American Cream Conditioner Review

Image

 

 

First things first. this does not smell like strawberries or vanilla at all to me. It does have a nice smell, which is good because the smells stays in your hair until you next wash it. So you should check whether you like the smell or not when you’re in the shop because you will hate this conditioner if you don’t like the smell!

 

It is really conditioning, and it left my hair silky smooth. Personally, I felt like I used a lot in my hair ( which was only used int he ends ) because when I first used a small bit it didn’t really feel as if it was conditioning my hair at all.

 

Overall it was a god product, it leaves your hair silky smooth and smelling delicious!

September Favourites

Okay, so I know I’m two days, too early with this post, but I have a feeling that this week is going to be busy and I’m exactly too sure if Ill have time to post anything so I decided to do it now while I had the time. I had a LOT of favourites this month, I just couldn’t help it. So I’ll just dive right in shall I?

Fragrance

I had two fragrances that I was constantly wearing this month, and both were gifts off my boyfriend over the past year. They both make great  day time scents, and are equally as good for evening time. They are Escada Cherry in the Air and Calvin Klein Escape. They both smell quite different, as you can guess Cherry in the Air smells like Cherry, its just a nice, sweet girl scent and I love it! Escape has a scent that is kind of hard to describe, its kind of fresh, fruity and floraly- ish. It’s quite a unique scent and you only need a teensy spray as it can be strong, but it has incredible lasting power.

Hair Products

I only really had two hair products that I enjoyed this month and they are Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends and Toni&Guy Frizz Smoothing Curl Conditioner.  Beautiful Ends helps to protects against split ends and it just makes the hair feel so smooth. You run it through your tips daily and just leave it. It works all day long to protect against breakage.  The Toni&Guy conditioner doesn’t have a pleasing smell, but the results are fantastic. Your curls or waves are so smooth and it leaves no frizz in your hair. It really conditions it, making your hair silky smooth!

Face

So I had a few products for my face this month, those were Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed and Scrub Your Nose in It, Lush Mask of Magnaminty, Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub, The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover, T-Zone Shine Control Cleansing Wipes and last of all Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser.

So I have done a review of the Soap & Glory products last week so I will just quickly say that they clean deep down into your pores so nicely and you notice the difference in your skin by the second use.  They really do make a difference and your skin feels so soft and smooth afterwards. Mask of Magnaminty from Lush is just the nicest face mask, its so refreshing and has a peppermint scent. It can be used on both your face and your back and it combats redness from the moment you put it onto your face. It also helps to clear up oily skin! Bubblegum Lip Scrub has been my saviour this month as I have had really dry lips, you rub it on and then lick it off and the flavour is delicious! Your lips are so smooth afterwards, but you should use a lipbalm too. The Body Shops eye make up remover actually stings my eyes a little bit if any gets in, but it does the job effectively and is moisturizing too so it doesn’t dry out the eye area. T-Zone facial wipes have really helped my shiny face be kept under control, the only thing that I have tried that really does so I am so impressed. Your skin tingles as you use them so you know you are getting a deep down clean. And lastly, Clean&Clear deep action cream cleanser is so lovely for everyday use, both morning and evening. It leaves a minty feeling and tingle after you wash your face making it feel really cleaned and fresh I love it!

Body

I only have two body products and they are Lush Ocean Salt and Cath Kidston Blossom hand cream. Ocean Salt is a facial scrub but I use it on my lower body as the salt particles are large and really exfoliate the skin. Its perfect to use before shaving your legs as they are so soft and smooth afterwards. Cath Kidston Blossom has a really delicate floral scent and really moisturizes your hands, and they stay soft and smooth for hours after use which I adore.

Make Up

I haven’t really been using much make up the past month. For my eyes it has to be my Naked Palette, hands down because it just has fabulous every day colour that suit all skin types and you can create so many looks from it.  The two eyebrow pencils to fill in my brows, they are Essence and Rimmel, and sometime si mix them for more definition but I mainly use essence and its in blonde and it matches my hair colour nicely because I don;t think dark brows suit me at all. To just smooth my skin and reduce the look of my pores I have been using two products together which are The Body Shops Tea Tree Pore Minimiser and Avons Face Perfector.  They do what I said, just smooth the look of the skin and minimise my pores, without clogging them so they don’t cause breakouts.  The onto Mascara which is from Seventeen and is a brown/black colour it has a nice consistency and doesn’t clump, it’s also waterproof so its good for the Irish weather. Lastly, I have a Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose and OH MY GOD, your lips are so moisturised and soft and perfect, it really does the job and the scent is great too!Image
