I did try the shampoo and conditioner, but as I have to use a silver/purple shampoo to preserve my blue grey hair, my little girl’s locks gets treated to all of the AROMAS magic. And when I say magic, I mean it. Her curls have never looked so perfect. The shampoo is extremely gentle, yet it cleanses beautifully. Once rinsed, her hair is left feeling so soft that I can almost skip the conditioner. But if you have curly hair, you...

Beauty: My favourite favourites of 2015

My sister often gets upset with me when I tell her about a product that I love. ‘But you said that one is your favourite?!’ She likes to give me the third degree. I try not to use the word favourite too often when talking about the things I love as there is just too many. There are a few products and services that stood out last year, so I have decided to share my favourite favourites of 2015 with you today. Let’s jump right in… Dermaceutic Mask 15 (and pretty much everything from this brand) If I had to choose just one skincare brand to use for the rest of my life, chances are that Dermaceutic will come up tops. I have raved about Mask 15 many times and I am still amazed by the results. Every. Single. Time. You can read my thoughts on the mask HERE. I have also been using Activ Retinol 1.0 and Turn Over. I will be posting a review on these two shortly. Keep an eye out as these products are amazing. REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial Want to wake up with smooth, bright, fresh-looking skin? Then this product is a must have. I love it. Pop over to read my full review HERE. BABOR New Skin Fluids Ampoule Concentrates FP Love. That is what it is. I used these ampules when I started at home derma rolling and my skin loves it. This product is definitely one of the top 5 best skincare products that I have ever used. Visible results almost instantly. Fresh-looking, plump and radiant skin. I would use these ampoules...

Retailbox Secret Box #18 – Pureology Curl Complete Shampoo & Conditioner Review

If you follow me on Social Media, you would have seen my clues, giveaway and eventual unveiling of the contents of the Retailbox Secret Box no. 18. Not sure what the RBSecretBox is? #RBsecretbox is an exciting opportunity for new and existing Retailbox customers to treat themselves to premium products they have possibly not tried before. Each #RBsecretbox is priced according to the products inside so prices will vary as every box is different and from different suppliers. This is an exclusive offer with limited stock and a massive discount making it a much sort after offer and a bonus of no subscriptions to tie you down. The only clue that was given on Retailbox about box #18… ‘Enhance your curly side with this vegan Sulphate free range’. So what was inside the box? This was my first time trying this brand and I have been very curious (to say the least) as all the reviews I have read are stellar. Pureology Curl Complete Shampoo – R278 This shampoo is specifically formulated for curly colour-treated hair, which is perfect for my naturally curly and highlighted (read: DRY!) hair. The shampoo foams well for a sulphate-free product and gently cleanses the hair. The formula is thick and creamy and smells lovely. Curl Complete Shampoo contains an Anti-Fade Complex and Coconut Oils to replenish moisture and erase frizz. Pureology Curl Complete Conditioner- R316 I was worried that the conditioner would be too light for my hair and that I would have to use half the bottle to detangle this bossiekop, but the conditioner turned out to be my favourite of the two...

Best Budget Beauty Buy: Palmer’s Coconut Oil hair care review

I realise that the title of this review is a mouthful, but this new discovery gets two thumbs up in the budget beauty products department. I accidentally discovered the new Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula range whilst browsing the hair care aisle in Clicks last week. Palmer’s is a very well known brand with products that have reached cult status – think Palmer’s Cocoa Butter and Tummy Butter. I have tried quite a few of their products and I have been very happy with them all. The only thing that I am not a huge fan of is the original Cocoa Butter Formula scent. I know many love it, but it’s not for me. The pretty packaging of the Coconut Oil Formula range caught my eye, and when I saw the price tag (I think they were R67 each) and that the products are sulfate- and paraben free, they went straight into the basket. Let me just get this out of the way and comment about the scent… amazing! If you love coconut (and I do!), you will love the smell of these products. It is a treat to use. The shampoo and conditioner both contain coconut oil and as I firm believer in the benefits coconut oil has for skin and hair, this is a definite plus point. The Shampoo is rich and thick and leaves my hair feeling clean (not sqeaky), soft and nourished. The shampoo is designed for dry, damaged, processed or colour treated hair. I basically tick all the boxes. This shampoo is a winner and I will buy it over and over again. The Conditioner...
