Paul Mitchell Construction Paste

I have thick, curly hair but have never wanted to apply heat when styling it, so I’m always on the lookout for new hair styling products that provide the right amount of hold and texture. I was so excited to try the Paul Mitchell Construction Paste that has an elastic hold so it provides enough strength to a hairstyle while still allowing for it to move and flow throughout the day!

I love trying new and unique skincare products because you can never have enough care for your skin. After all, it has to battle against the weather and all the chemicals we decide to load it with! I was so excited to receive this intelligent Bioactive Peat mask and used it straight away. Although the warning of slight reddening due to increased microcirculation did scare me!

Cloud 9 Skin Solutions – Clarity Skin Clearing Spot Gel – £32.00

I was introduced to this spot gel through Grapevine PR and to be honest I’ve never trusted products like this. However, this gel has certainly changed my opinion! This hypoallergenic gel works to reduce inflammation and prevent spots from returning on blemished and acne prone skin. The amazing thing about this gel is that it is clear and invisible so it can be incorporated into any daily skincare routine.

Argan Dew Hair Mask/Oil Review – 20% Discount Code!

IMG_7691

Hi everyone! I was fortunate enough to receive samples of the Replenishing Hair Mask and the Miraculous Argan Oil from a company called Argan Dew. This company prides themselves on 100% natural hydration due to the mixture of Moroccan argon oil with other organic plant oils. Argan Oil has really taken over the world of hair-care and I normally style my hair with a few drops of Argan Oil, so I thought it would be a good idea to try out a hair treatment and I was pleasantly surprised!

The packaging is simple, sleek and classy. The sachets of product come in a small card with some history of Argan Oil and it’s uses. On the back of the cards, we have the Argan Dew website and also the other products that the company has to offer e.g: Miraculous Argan Oil, Intensive Replenishing Hair Mask, Restorative Hair Treatment, Lustrous Conditioner and Enriching Shampoo. The cards remind me of opening a birthday card with a present inside!

When using the Replenishing Hair Mask we are told to wash the hair and then apply the mask while the hair is wet. You then leave the mask in and after 5 minutes, wash it out. This hair treatment was DEFINITELY the best product out of the two, as it left the hair silky smooth and soft, without that greasy feeling. I constantly have straw-like dry hair when it has just been washed so this product definitely got the thumbs up from me.

The Miraculous Argan Oil however, I felt was too “oily” for my liking. This product would best be used on its own as I used it straight after the Replenishing Hair Treatment which is maybe why my hair was left feeling too shiny and greasy. The oil can be used on wet or dry hair and can also be used before or after styling which is a plus. The oil smells amazing and fruity unlike many other oils which have no smell whatsoever.

I hope you enjoyed this quick review and also I was lucky enough to receive a code for 20% OFF! To receive your discount follow this link to the Argan Dew website: http://goo.gl/YrqlLp and enter the code argandew.

Doll White Whitening Strips (£12.99)

First of all I want to thank Doll White for sending me these whitening strips. I’m all about new and quirky techniques for teeth whitening and these strips looked promising containing no peroxide and being mint flavoured! So I tried these strips for 7 days…

You receive a cool white box with the doll white logo across it and on the back are instructions for use and a disclaimer and contact details for the company. When you open the box you find black sachets (with the doll white logo) that contain the pairs of whitening strips. Upon opening you are presented with a clear plastic sheet with clear gel like strips, one for the upper and one for the lower teeth. I like how the strips are different shaped to mould to the contours of the gums.

The gel strip goes on easily to the teeth however it soon starts hardening and can be uncomfortable to some. Also the mint flavouring is very minimal if any. The box says to leave the strips on for 30 mins which is a reasonably long time however it is a good idea to put these on first thing in a morning so that you are occupied enough to pass time. You then dispose of the strips and rinse your mouth.

After 7 days, I have to say the effects, were mediocre… My teeth were whiter straight after using the strips compared to the overall 7 day effect. In the long term, these strips are good for reducing stains from coffee etc. I would definitely recommend these whitening strips for an event e.g. prom or a wedding but in the long term I would prefer something stronger.

Thank-you for lasting through the whole blog post and head over to www.dollwhite.com to see what other amazing products they have to offer. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments down below. Please don’t forget to subscribe!

Amazing Timeless Truth Charcoal Face Mask (£4.90)

Ladies and gentlemen I introduce to you THE best face mask that i have ever tried, and trust me I’ve been through a few. I was lucky enough to receive this Charcoal Face Mask from Timeless Truth. They are a UK based company who specialise in innovated and patented face masks that use beneficial extracts in a freeze dried powder within the cloth itself (giving one side of the cloth a darker appearance). The mask comes soaked in a serum which therefore gives the face mask double the cleansing power! To top it all off the serum that’s left in the packet you can use as another face mask later on! You’re practically getting 2 for 1!

The Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask is a checkered black and white mask that contains Bamboo Charcoal Extract which is good for deep cleansing and also instantly brightens, smoothes, firms and hydrates the skin. The photo above definitely agrees with all these statements! I followed the instructions by leaving the packet in the fridge for a more refreshing feeling (which felt heavenly). The only personal downside was that for some reason the mask wouldn’t stick to my facial hair, however I left it on for 30 mins and then took it off and massaged the excess residue into the skin. My skin instantly looked brighter and felt smoother and for the first time my pores had reduced in size! A few days later i used the extra serum that was in the packet as a face mask/moisturiser and more or less the same effect was observed.

I would recommend everyone to head over to www.ttmasks.co.uk just to at least check out the different kinds of masks that they sell, ranging from moisturising Deep Sea masks to cleansing Charcoal Extract masks! Let me know if you try the masks and your verdict on them!
