Hair & Skin at Boots-Part II

HAIR

The rest of the stuff was for my hair:

Curly, Glossy, Fresh hair, anyone?

The Umberto Giannini were 2 for £7.50 (they were around £5  each).

I tried the Glossing mist and didn’t see any major difference but maybe I’m applying too little or too far. Will keep trying.

I’ve also tried the Glam hair Dry Shampoo (saw it in a video from the adorable lollipop 26, link on the sidebar). I does what it says. Cleaned my oily roots without any residue or white powder effect (like unfortunately does the Batiste). So pretty happy with this one.

I haven’t tried the mousse yet. I’m looking for an alternative to the Tressemme that I’ve been using nonstop for more than 4 years now! Will keep you posted on this one also…

Lastly: a new hairdryer

BaByliss dryer with diffuser

I really needed a new one. The cheapy Boots brand one that I had was really ruining my hair mainly I suppose because it could get really hot sometimes.  This one wasn’t that expensive anyway, around 25£. It claims to give high shine from ionic conditioners.

I haven’t really seen any major difference apart from the fact that my hair lasts clean a day  longer ( I’m not sure how can be due to the dryer but I have been using my regular products and this is the only thing that changed…). Also this one doesn’t get really that hot but dries my hair much faster which I guess in the long run means less heat exposure for my hair…

Will see how it goes in a few weeks time…

That’s all!

Have a lovely rest of the day!


Gone Baby Gone-Part I

It’s not very often (actually it is VERY rare) that I happened to finish a product. Most often than not I get bored with things and moved to the next one before I finish something.

That’s why whenever I DO finish something I feel it must be that the  product either stands out for whatever reason or it’s really something I use daily or both.

So for the past few months instead of throwing away the empty stuff  I’ve been finishing up  I decided to keep it with the purpose of showing them in a post and sharing them with you.

So here they are:

Gone, gone gone!

One by one:

Neutrogena's Deep Clean range

These have been great this past summer. The wipes are moist and get the dirt away leaving your skin fresh and moist. The scrub is very good too. I used it everyday  in the shower and has that minty/fresh feel that I love in a scrub. I saw both being recommended in Youtube by girls with flawless skin and when I saw it in Boots I thought I’d try it. Great choice! It didn’t erase the flaws from my skin but it left it clean and fresh.

Tresseme mousse Curl Defining

I’ve talk about this one before. I like how it leaves my curls (well, defined, yes) when I need to blow dry my hair (which now is almost every time I wash it because otherwise it takes ages to dry…).

Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle

This was recommended by a good friend. And I’m not sure about miracles but this conditioner surely leaves my hair supersmooth and silky the way no other does. The next one I will try is the one for frizzy hair. If you haven’t tried it you should definitely give it a go. Look for the 2 for £6 offers in Boots or Superdrug (which run quite often).

More to come tomorrow.

Which products have you finished up lately?


Superdrug is my drug!

Last Friday I had no plans after work so I decided to “get lost” in Superdrug. I love going through the different aisles and discover new things at the same time I picked up some of my regular routine hair/make up products.

Here’s what I bought:

 

My latest Superdrug haul

 

My old time favourites:

Simply Pure Superdrug’s eye makeup remover

 

Superdrug's Simply pure makeup remover

 

This works wonders without irritating my eyes. I now the toner as well. And it’s cheap! What else can ask for?

-Tressemme Curl Hair mousse

 

Tresseme's Curl Defining mousse

 

Very efficient in taming the frizz of my curly hair

-Also bought some new wipes I want to try out, also from Superdrug’s brand:

 

Simply Pure's gentle facial wipes

 

Optimum eye makeup remover pads

Revlon’s ColorStay eyeshadow quad and single eyeshadow:

 

Revlon ColorStay eyeshadows

 

 

Quad: Gems in Jewels

 

 

Single eyeshadow: Peacock Lustre

 

Very nice colors, love them! Not sure about the 12h stay though, even on top of my beloved ELF mineral primer…but they last a decent amount of time.

-A Nivea lip balm in Pearly Shine: very nice shimmery balm although a bit dry, perfect with some lip gloss on top

-And last but not least…some metallic Barry M nail polish! (was trying to find a nice dupe for OPI’s Louvre me Louvre me not)

 

Miss Sporty and Barry M metallic nail polishes (with flash)

 

 

Nice colors! (without flash)

 

The Barry M colors are Navy in 292 and Wild Purple in 161. Cannot read the color on Miss Sporty’s bottle though.

I have to say that I’m still in awe of these cheap Barry M  polishes 2 for £5). I just had navy on my nails and it lasted for 5 days without almost any chips, had great coverage with only one coat and with two the finish was flawless.

Cannot wait to wear the purple ones but I’m giving my nails a break…Not sure how long I’ll resist wihout painting them again!
