:: Coconut and Almond Delight ::

:: Boots Coconut and Almond Intensive Hair Mask ::


I thought I would give the boots intensive hair mask a go as it is very cheaply priced,the packaging is nice and the smell, coconut and almond, is one of my favourites. I must admit I was skeptical at first as this product is so cheap but I was pleasantly surprised.  




This product comes in a nice tub so application is easy. I was expecting a strong aroma of coconut and almond but it is relatively mild so don't be put off if your not a big fan of this aroma.  The smell also isn't lasting on the hair as by the time you add conditioner and any other products you use it is covered up.

The appearance of this mask is gorgeous.  It has a white, silky, pearly look to it which just shouts out for you to dip your hand in and try it on your hair.

I've used this hair mask 1-2 times a week for the past couple of months and I really like it. I only apply it from my ears down, so not my roots and use a generous helping after shampooing. It makes my hair very soft, sleek and shiny.

Priced at only £1.99 at Boots this product is an absolute bargain!

:: Want a Good Hair Day? ...Grab some GHD's ::

:: Want a Good Hair Day? ... Grab some GHD's::


There's not much to say about about GHD Straighteners other than that they are brilliant!!! I've been using them for at least 8 years now and the results are flawless.
 
In the past I have used various other straighteners before GHDs came along and now there is no looking back. They are quick to use - I have long thick hair and can straightener it all in just 10 minutes. They also make the hair smooth and sleek and get rid of any frizzy strands.
I'd never use another product, by far GHds are my favourite! 
I've got the limited edition baby pink straightness which I've had a good few years now. Rather than show you a picture of those I thought I'd share one from the current range (there are many others available). These are the gorgeous Rich Ruby GHds currently priced at £135.00 on the Official GHD website. As well as the styler, you get a lovely heat resistant quilted case with heat mat. If I didn't already have some GHD's I'd definitely go out and by these beauties!

Raspberry Blush Nails

:: Raspberry Blush Nails ::


The nail varnish I am reviewing today is no.402 Urban Purple in the Rimmel Lycra Pro Professional Finish range priced at £4.59 at Boots in the UK.




I'm really into these dark autumn colours now the nights are getting dark and we're leading up to Christmas and this is definitely a favourite of mine.  The shade I would describe as being deep raspberry rather than purple like the name suggests.




The formulation of this nail varnish is perfect for me.  It isn't too thin so you don't need to apply more than two coats to get great coverage but it also isn't so thick that it ends up just peeling off your nails. The brush is also great. It is the maxi brush which means it is wide and designed with a anti-fade colour system. It makes for easy, smooth and quick application.

Since buying this nail varnish I've used it on several different occasions and have found the results to be consistent every time. Although, one negative point is that I do find it chips pretty easily, even with a generous helping of top coat.  As the packaging claims it would last up to ten days and is 'long lasting, chip resistant and anti-fade', I would have expected a lot  more  from this product. Within 24 hours I had several chips which was very disappointing and has put me off using this polish for certain occasions.

Hi! Welcome to my blog. This blog will primarily focus on cosmetic reviews but I will also add some reviews for other things from time to time like hair stylers/accessories etc.

This is the first blog I have done so is a learning curve for me but I hope you find my reviews useful.  If there are any products in particular you would like a review on pop me a message and I'll see what I can do.

Bye for now!
