I am really fussy when it comes to my hair, I have tried a thousand different hair care products since my early teens things like overnight creams, serums, leave on masks, gels, hairsprays, conditioners and shampoos. It’s very rare that actually find something that I like and it works, so I decided to write a blog post on my latest hair care buys because I love them! 🙂
Schwarzkopt Got2B 2 Sexy Big Volume Push Up Volumizing Hairspray Now this hairspray is one of my favourites and for a good reason, unlike other hairsprays it is not overly thick and heavy, it is pretty weightless and makes your hair feel like it has no hairspray in at all but still keeps the style which is great!
Another high point of this hairspray is that is smells AMAZING! It smells like a mixture of strawberries and raspberries and I love it. Although for a can of hair spray it is quite expensive (Usually more than £2.50 but less than £5 in different places) but its worth it if you want good looking hair.
VO5 Plump It Up Shampoo
VO5 has always been a brand of shampoo that I have always quite admired and that is because I think they produce some damn good shampoo’s and conditioners! I brought this one the other day because I really wanted a good shampoo that uplifted my hair and made it more stronger and also voluminous. Many hair care brands promise to make your hair more bouncy, stronger, luscious and such but hardly any actually produce such a good product which does what it says. but this one does exactly what it states and that’s why I love it. Not only does it give body and boost for fine or flat looking hair it also has heat defence which is perfect for me as I use straighteners or curlers a lot! I noticed my hair was fuller and more thicker after using it just once the first time so it’s a definite win 🙂
So I thought that I would try this T-Zone 4 in 1 scrub that I found out shopping, it was half price so I thought I’d give it a go. So how would I rate this product? I love it! It doesn’t make my troublesome skin automatically disappear when I need it too but it smells wonderful and if you love the smell of orange you’ll love this scrub!
The exfoliating beads are not rough like many other scrubs and the formula is not too thick nor too runny so it seems a good balance in consistency. It’s deep cleansing and naturally anti bacterial which is always a bonus but I know with many of these products that contain salicylic acid or tea tree that many people worry their skin will dry out which of course is a possibility and believe me its happened to me before as well but its all about finding a great product that contains these ingredients but which doesn’t dry your skin out, or what I do sometimes if I like a product but it dries my skin out is to moisturize afterwards with some hydrating cream! 🙂
Overall I do like this scrub as it smells nice and its refreshing as well once applied!
Lately my skin has not been amazingly great, due to the fact I probably haven’t ate very good foods to promote healthy skin (That’ll all change though!) and I have felt a little stressed as well so my skin has suffered naturally promoting spots 😦 So when I was in Superdrug the other day I picked up Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamin & Extracts Scrub (Avocado and Pomegranate) in the hope that it would revive my skin a little!
This scrub apparently contains vitamins like vitamin E and contains avocado and pomegranate extracts which promote healthier skin with the aid of anti oxidants and exfoliating beads. The formula itself is quite thick in consistency but is not hard to rub in, I was super excited to use this product but sadly it has had no prevail to my skin, I have been using it for just about a week and have not seen much improvement, but perhaps I am hoping this is due to the fact I need to use it a little longer so I will keep on using it and see how it goes 🙂
The scrub itself smells delicious and I love the Clearasil brand as I believe in their promises and aims (Not sure why?! They just seem more reliable) but this product does not seem to be as powerful as their usual stuff which is kind of a down point. However overall I do still love this product regardless and will continue to give it a second chance 🙂
Okay so some point in our lives we will suffer spots, acne or dry flaky skin right? It’s something that can make many girls feel insecure or under pressure to sort out, I too was one of those girls in secondary school that didn’t have spots for a while and I genuinely believed maybe this problem may have missed me out to which I was happy with! However around the age of 16 on wards I started to break out in spots now and then, I didn’t really ever have acne but I did suffer like most with occasional big red spots – you know the ones that you cant hide. Now I want to reassure anyone reading this if they have spots or are worried they will get them that it is perfectly natural and everyone and I mean EVERYONE will get them at some point in their life, so stop worrying 🙂
I was the type of girl and still am that worries over having clear skin, so I thought I would share 4 things that I use for clearer skin and that I love:
No7 Beautiful Skin Purifying Exfoliator for Normal/Dry skin 75ml. Now I love this, I got this amazing No7 Exfoliator for a bargain with a voucher I received so it was half price but it’s not that expensive anyway so that’s a plus. One of the reasons I love this is because some exfoliators can be very harsh however the beads in this are small and easy to rub in which helps remove dead skin cells and it’s also meant to make your skin much brighter and healthy. I personally think this product is great and when it runs out I definitely plan to buy some more. They do different ones in the No7 range for different skin types as well which is great!
Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash and Mask by Neutrogena 150ml. I have had this for a while now and the bottle still feels full! I love it because it smells so fresh and it feels nice when you wear it as a mask or just using it for a wash because the mixture is so creamy. I think it’s great because it unclogs pores and helps reduce spots which makes it great that it’s a two in one!
Clearasil Ultra Overnight Wash 150ml. This is a product that I have used endlessly because I find it works, it doesn’t just tell me it’ll reduce my spots size by the morning but it actually does it! This is a winner for them big red spots that you want smaller and less noticeable by tomorrow and I love it because it gets rid of dirt and oil effectively as well and it smells quite pleasant.
Visibly Clear Spot Stress Control 3-in-1 Daily Cleansing Lotion by Neutrogena 200ml. My last item on my 4 things I use for clearer skin is this. It’s always handy to have a lotion for when you haven’t got time to exfoliate or wash your face and with this one I love it because it deeply cleanses, reduces excess oil and helps prevent and clear spots. The smell of this though is rather strong and sometimes overpowering but never the less an awesome product that I love.
