Moroccanoil. Does it deserve its cult status??

Moroccanoil. I don’t think it’s possible to find a beauty lover who has not at least heard of this brand. I have finally gotten a chance to try this Argan infused hair care range and I couldn’t wait to see if it truly deserves its cult status. I have tried a few cult beauty products that have left me wanting. Does Moroccanoil truly live up to the hype? The answer is YES, YES, YES. The quality, the scent, the packaging, the results. I can find little fault. Here are reviews of the products a gave a test drive. Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo is an extremely lightweight formula that is free from sulphates, phosphates and parabens and infused with a host of ingredients to nourish, protect and plump. It is a very ‘water loving’ formula and foams beautifully. It works best if you add a little bit of water at a time and form a good lather before applying it to your hair. It leaves my hair feeling soft and manageable, clean but not stripped and it gives great shine. R270 Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner is just as lightweight as the shampoo which makes it great for normal hair types. Just as the shampoo, it is also infused with Tilicine (and other ingredients) which penetrates the hair and plump up the cuticle from the inside out. It is recommended for fine or limp hair. Even though it made my hair soft and manageable and helped a great deal to detangle, I think I need a conditioner with a bit more oomph (for these super dry and damaged tresses). I think...

TanOrganic – finally a self-tan that I can use!

I am pale. And not the pretty kind of pale. I have lots of moles and freckles (and age spots on my shins *insert ugly cry*) and when it’s cold, I can actually look purple. The only way to get some colour on my skin is too bake in the sun. Not the best option, but I’m allergic to self-tan. I’ve even consulted a dermatologist and they just suggested that I steer clear. I have tried many (many!) self tanning products in my life, but I have had terrible reactions to them all. It’s probably due to a chemical ingredient in these tanners. Last summer I tried a drugstore lotion that contains a gradual tanner in the hopes that I can get some colour before having to put on a bather. What a disaster. My eczema flared up so badly that I had no other option but to treat it with cortisone. My skin even reacted badly in places that I have never had eczema before. It was horrible. Then I heard about TanOrganic a couple of months ago. I wanted to get excited, but I was worried that the same would happen. TanOrganic has this to say about their products: Streak Free Tan. Perfect Fade due to its nourishing moisturising qualities. No perfume or fragrance and especially no “fake tan” smell. No parabens, toxic preservatives or artificial drying agents. Ingredients are 99.6% natural ingredients. The world’s first and only Eco-certified self-tanning brand. Ethically made, Environmentally Friendly & PETA approved I e-mailed TanOrganic to find out more. Janine e-mailed me back and had this to say: ‘A big difference with TanOrganic is that it is all natural,...
