Hair Color -Unlisted Brand - Tints of Nature - Conditioning Permanent Hair Color

I have used Tints of Nature off and on for a few years. The chemicals in regular hair dye make me a bit nervous...too many horror stories about reactions and carcinogens (tied to hair dyes) in the media for my liking so I've started using ToN again. I just coloured my hair with 7RL Medium Bright Copper. I had coloured my hair with L'oreal Preference Medium Copper Brown prior to this and my natural colour is dark blond/light brown. I have a sprinkling of grey, but its minimal. What I wanted was an intense copper colour without the fear of over dark roots (that you get using a brown base). My daughter who is a hairdresser in Toronto was all " it won't work, it won't lift your hair blah blah" but I wasn't looking for lift. What I wanted was to ''lay'' a rich layer of copper red on my hair and you know what? That is exactly what it did. My hair looks fantastic. Its a very rich dark copper, the colour is completely even and there was no horrible ammonia smell, and any colour you get on anything other than your hair (towels ect) comes out much eaiser (I know this from past experience LOL). I intend to keep using ToN and I may try some of the lightening kits to do streaks with as well...

Right...these are fantastic. You feel extremely clean, exfoliated and really...invigorated. Seriously. They really do get your circulation going. I could really tell as my tattoos stood out quite vividly after I finished in the shower. I also used it very gently on my face...once a week or so of that and you will have a very clean, exfoliated, smooth face as well. Customer service from the website is fab... I ordered my cloths last weekend, they shipped on on my Tuesday here in New Zealand and arrived in THREE days from California. These will stay as a staple in my bathroom -
Conditioner -Garnier - Fructis Sleek & Shine Instant Melting Conditioner

I LOVE this product. I dye my hair every 6 weeks and it can get quite dry. I first tried this in Australia (its called melt in hair masque in Aus and NZ) and when I got home to New Zealand I searched high and low for it. Finally found it at Farmers, for $12.99 instead of the $3.00 I paid in Aus. It really smoothes my hair and takes care of the frizzy flyaways I tend to get. I also use a few drops in my hand to smooth over my hair when I'm blow-drying. I've given the packaging 5 stars because its in a tube which is much better than a tub. Easier to use in the shower...
Skincare - Face -Avon - ANEW REVERSALIST Night Sterling Emulsion

The sterling emulsion is a fantastic product! Goes on beautifully, absorbs well into my skin and the gel with silver sparkles looks and feels really luxurious. And my skin is looking fabulous...the best it has looked in years. It actually looks better now then it did ten years ago. And if you told me I'd be saying this about Anew I would not have believed it. I''m so sold I now use the entire Anew Reversalist line and I love ALL of it. I'm 45 and my skin is in really good condition, minimal lines, no wrinkles and I'd like to keep it that way. I've been taking care of my skin since I was 19 and have tried a lot of products, some very expensive and a lot of mid-range buys. This is by far and away the best skin care regime I have ever used. My skin looks fantastic, brighter, clearer and my under eye circles have hugely reduced. I bought the entire line for $144.00NZ and that was for five products, eye cream, serum, day cream, night cream and the sterling silver emulsion. I recommend them to everyone I know and will continue to be a very loyal customer.
