Organics Citrus & Neroli Detangler
4.0
Created with Sketch.

18 days ago

I love the scent, ease of use and fantastic slip this gives my hair. It makes detangling a breeze.The price is too much for a detangling product in my opinion. I tend to use cheapie conditioners to detangle that work just as well.


SPF 30 Natural Mineral Sunscreen

Be warned...the white cast from this is absolutely horrendous! I purchased it several months back in the full 2oz size as it was the smallest size available and there were no testers out for me to try either. Firstly the bottle is so heavy! I was surprised how much the glass amber bottle weighed, I instantly figured if I needed to take this on travel I'd definitely need to decant into something much more lightweight. Then came the application - literally like a watered down but thicker version of calamine lotion, the titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are full-on in this product and absolutely no way could I walk around with a glaring white sheen covering my face and neck, so I removed it immediately! For that matter I can't even use it on my arms or body, it's just far too obvious...and in any case even if I wanted to I now definitely cannot as the product has congealed into what looks like a solid white lump in the bottle, surrounded by a layer of what appears to be water! Not happy. Wasn't cheap either!  Selena x  ~ My HG list ~  (As I've sampled 100s of skin, hair and m/u products over the last decade and a half, I thought it might be useful to share my top 10 must-have products, subject to change if and when I come across something more effective. I love constantly trying out new stuff - usually sample sizes via e-bay, also plenty courtesy of a friend who works at Sephora)  1. Hair Loss Treatment: ‘Divine Herbal’ - Hair Oil  2. Lip Balm: 'Nuxe' - Reve De Miel Lip Balm  3. Pigmentation + Anti-Ageing Treatment: ‘Divine Herbal’ - Facial Treatment Serum  4. Cleanser: 'Paula's Choice' - Skin Balancing Cleanser  5. Concealer: ‘Mac’ - Studio Finish Concealer  6. Lash Growth Serum: ‘Divine Herbal’ - Divinelash  7. Foundation/SPF: ‘Juice Beauty’ - Stem Cellular Repair (warm glow)  8. Face Scrub: ‘Sisley' - Botanical Gentle Buffing Cream  9. Moisturizer: ‘Lush' - Enzymion  10. Hand Cream: 'Origins' - Make A Difference Rejuvenating Hand Treatment

vitamin C anti-aging face serum

I’ve been looking for a vitamin c serum that’s available in Europe (I used a korean brand serum back when I lived in Asia) and I think this will be my go-to night serum. I’ve been using this for over two weeks and I’ve already noticed that my skin tone is less dull and more even. I use one pump of this serum only at night over my Clinique toner and under pure argan oil. That’s it! When it gets drier in winter i’ll just apply some Avene cold cream on the top. I think there’s just a very fresh citrusy fragrance that fades really quickly, not too sure why the other reviewers had issues with the smell. My sensitive skin didn’t act up with this (compared to Kiehl’s old vitamin C serum).
