So glad Klorane dry shampoo is now available in Australia. It craps all over Cedel, which I had been using before. Klorane is much lighter and requires fewer sprays to do the same job. And it doesn't leave much residue, smell bad or make my scalp feeling disgusting like Cedel did.
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - With Love by Hilary Duff

I bought this maybe 5 years ago when I still had some tween-ish tendencies.... (I guess I still do). I like this perfume after it has faded - it smells less sweet/stuffy, and instead it becomes warmer and... sultrier? I think I will try and find a perfume that contains the base notes of With Love (the base notes are amber milk/amber musk if I'm not mistaken). As well, I find this perfume very heavy, and would not wear it during the day or in summer!
Cleansers -Avene - Cleanance soapless gel cleanser for oily skin
girlsinlove 11/18/2011 3:11:00 AM
I gave it two lippies cos I would guess that this would be good for someone with oilier skin than mine to use, but for me, it is just too drying. After three uses I started seeing small red dry patches appear on my skin. I know people say to let your skin "get used to" a new product, but I'm not sure if redness and dryness is something worth getting used to. I have sensitive, combination, acne-prone skin (it's terrible as it sounds) and I thought since the Avene brand is supposed to be for those with sensitive skin, I could get away with this cleanser for acne-prone skin - but obviously not. I would say if you have skin that has in the past found other commercial cleansers (such as Neutrogena or even Cetaphil) to be too drying then expect nothing different from this product.
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - David Babaii for WildAid Hair Polish

This gives my hair a nice glossy shine without any build-up, which I appreciate because my hair is dry plus I often straighten my hair. It also smells very nice :) I took one lippy off because it doesn't fully smooth away my frizzy fly-aways - though if it did that would be truly miraculous I think, haha. It's something like AUD $25 per bottle - the bottle is small, but you don't need much serum to add some more softness and shine to your hair.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - David Babaii for WildAid - hydrating shampoo

This shampoo smelled lovely and I thought it would be moisturising but after a few weeks it has started to become TOO moisturising for my scalp/roots and is weighing down my hair. My scalp doesn't feel as clean and is getting oilier! Shame. This shampoo might be good for someone with dry scalp!
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - David Babaii for WildAid Hydrating conditioner

I have naturally dry, coarse, thick Asian hair and have been on a long road, trying lots of different conditioners (none of the more expensive salon brands though - I'm a poor student), and none of them have really made any difference at all. This conditioner hasn't instantly and miraculously given me silky soft, tv-ad-worthy locks - but it has definitely improved my hair for which I'm very grateful! And I also like the hair polish of the same brand. I think if you have combination/dry hair, then give this a go. Also it smells really lovely which is a rare thing for organic haircare products!!
