While this product smells delicious!! It doesn't perform half as well as I had hoped it would:( I need a protein treatment as my hair is quite brittle from all the stresses of using flat irons and dying etc. My hair doesn't feel any stronger after using this or look any better. I had previously used Redken Cat and Redken deep fuel which both worked INCREDIBLY! I will probably finish the tube of this as it can't do my hair any harm but i will defo be switching back to redken after!
Im on my second bottle of this as my hair seems to miss it when I go without it for a while! My hair has suffered quite a bit of damage as i cant just leave it alone- from dying, highlights, blowdrying straightening etc..the ends are quite traumatised and i feel less guilty bout using heat with this in. The more you use it the better your hair feels. But be careful because if you use too much it feels like you didn't wash out conditioner properly! I find it tricky to judge how much to put in as my hair is fine and can get weighed down. But nonetheless its a good product that i'll keep using unless i find something better!
This is the one piece of makeup I buy over and over again!! I just love this mascara, I have long eyelashes and get complimented on them the whole time when i wear this. The brush is great it seperates and lenghtens without any clumps. When i go to buy new mascara I wander around boots looking at others but I can never seem to stray from this lol! Defo recommend Im always telling people to buy this!
While i enjoyed using this mask i don't think i'll buy it again as its a product I could easily live without. It did smell lovely and had a nice consistency but I don't think it makes much difference to skin. I have quite soft skin already so I just wanted it to impart a little glow but no luck! Although I used pratically the whole thing because i love to pamper myself lol!
Moisturizers -Dr. Hauschka - Moisturizing Day Cream

Initially I liked this moisturiser- It was hydrating enough without being too heavy so i could wear it under makeup. It imparted a nice glow to my face( I have normal skin with a slightly oily tzone!). Unfortunatly after about a week or two of using it i started to get little red bumps on my forehead which surprised me cos I've never had sensitive skin. Maybe it was the oils? i think im gonna stick to water based moisturisers. Anyway once i stopped using the bumps cleared up and my skin retured to normal. Don't think I'll be recommending this to anyone!
Lip Gloss -TheBalm - Plump Your Pucker in Cocoa my Coconut

I really love this lipgloss, I have really pigmented pink lips and this nudes them down perfectly!! I have tried many nude colors from mac, nars etc but this beats them hands down. I thought I would love Nars Striptease but this is so much better. Its a lovely polished beige nude that doesn't make you look washed out and ill! Its not at all sticky and doesnt burn like a lot of lip plumpers!Think Im gonna be getting a lot of use out of this one:) highly recommend!!
In my opinion this is one of the best shampoos i have ever tried and i like changing it up a lot! But this is one im defo gonna repurchase! I have fine hair but a lot of it and it can get weighed down easily, i especially found this with a lot of the cheaper moisturising shampoos i used! But this really softens without making it greasy or heavy! i have naturally wavy hair and whether i let it air dry or blow dry it works wonders! Love this and the extreme range from redken.
This foundation is the holy grail for me i just love it. It gives a total natural glowy finish that just evens out skintone and makes you look healthy!! I love it! I use it every day unless i feel like something heavier...which never looks as good as face and body!:) been using it for about a yr now and cant see myself stopping anytime soon! would definitely recommend if you want natural coverage and your skin isn't too blemished. I use the shade c4 and its pretty spot on but iv also used c3 and c5 and find they also blend into my skin really well.
