The Face: REN Serums

Oh REN how I've come to love thee. In the last year I've tried already quite a few of their products and my favourites so far have to be their serums and their masks. I also love the fact that there are no nasty ingredients in their products, REN are seriously my favourite skincare brand I've tried so far. This is starting to sound like a sponsored post, but it really isn't, I swear ;-)

The Body: Prolonging the Tan

I don't know about you, but for me building up a tan is quite a chore. I don't particularly like lying in the scorching sun for hours on end (while wearing SPF!). So when I finally build up a little bit of colour, I won't to preserve for as long as possible. That's were these babies come in.

The Hair: Bumble & Bumble Bits

In my travel beauty bag video, I mentioned that I had just bought these two Bumble & Bumble numbers and I promised you all I would report back on how I got on with them. So here I am.
First things first, my hair story, I have oily roots, but pretty dry lenghts from having them bleached earlier this year. So I need a shampoo that will cleanse my scalp thorougly and a conditioner that will make my ends nourished and soft again.

The Hair: Phyto 7 Hydrating Day Cream

So as you guys already know my locks have been really dry and damaged recently after all it has been through, but after going out to get some products to sort out my mob it's been in much better condition. One of those products was this one, the Phyto 7 Hydrating Day Cream with 7 plants.

The Face: Hydrating Products

Today I'm going to bust a myth for you all. People with oily skin do not need to apply moisturiser.
People with oily skin DO need to apply moisturiser. The cause of oily skin can often be dehydration, because your skin lacks hydration it will produce extra sebum to keep your skin moisturised. So oily skinned gals, get moisturising!

The Hair: Redken All Soft Argan-6

A couple of months ago my hair was feeling a little dry and coarse, so while on offer at FeelUnique, I picked up the Redken All Soft Argan-6 hair oil. Since then my hair doesn't only feel softer, it also looks nicer and smells heavenly.

The Face: La Roche Posay Serozinc

Let me just start by saying sorry. After reading this post you're probably going to want to have this product, but it is only available in France. So if you're lucky enough to live there or have family there or go on holiday there once in a while, then good for you, you can probably get your mits on this. For the rest of you, it's a tough life ;-)
