I adore coconut oil for my diet, it has helped with health concerns and generally my body loves it. I was sure that I would have similar luck with using this for beauty, but unfortunately, not. Most recently I tried it as a lip balm, and it didn't stay on for long, and once it came off my lips were drier after than before!

I finally tried this after seeing it at tills for years, and I was disappointed that it dried my lips out. It goes on quite moist, but doesn't seem to stay on long, and when it comes off, lips feel drier than they were before. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me.

I bought this salon at home weekly treatment after getting smartbond with my hair colour. My hair felt softer and more moist after the colour and continues to feel nice after these weekly treatments. It is a reasonably good and dependable product. It had improved my puffy dry over-coloured hair.

I had tried this years ago (around 4 years ago) and at the time I hadn't been that impressed, it seemed to make my hair feel like straw, perhaps because my hair was glossy and shiny and healthy, or the formula was more protein heavy, I am not sure.

Since then I have had some bleached highlights and some hairdressers haven't been brilliant. My current one is wonderful, but …

I am a long term fan and supporter of the Redken brand.

I bought the new Nature + Science All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner set.

At first I thought it was great, however, I noticed that I'd not washed out the product so it left my hair feeling gummy. The next two times I washed my hair, it became increasingly gummy and sticky, particularly around the scalp, I couldn't …

For blondes, this is perfect, I love two - three coats. Very flattering on all skin tones. Neutral enough to be very classy and elegant, it's not too pink or too white. Just great.

No no no!

I am not a fan of sprays to start with, they use a huge amount of product and the spray travels very far, generally all over your bathroom. But this was all that was left in Boots and I was going away on holiday. I didn't want to get it because it was the Express range, and I've used this before and it would crack after a few days, however, I thought I'd give it …

Lip Gloss - CLARINS - Instant Light Lip Perfector

I bought this in the lightest shade after seeing an online blogger recommend it.

Pros: Cute tube, lovely sponge tip, sweet smell and taste, softens lips.

Cons: Lipglossy texture (can be heavy), applying more than one layer makes the product colour look almost white which is rather unflattering, and the tube gets easily crushed and squeezed in a bag or pockets which means the …

I bought this range (shampoo, conditioner and leave in), because my beloved Redken Blonde Idol has been discontinued.

I love the packaging of the shampoo, and the smell, very delicate, and the product range does definitely calm down yellow or brassy tones (my new hairdresser tried something different and added yellow toned highlights rather than the usual cool tones I prefer), but it …
