Hair Care and Styling Products Wish List: Viviscal, Kerastase, Mason Pearson and MOP

I never liked my hair, there are so many things I don’t like about it that I won’t even bother mentioning them all. At least I am happy that it is straight and  I am also happy with my natural hair colour;  I have had all the shades  and styles in the past. But I have stopped dying it when I was about 22-23, and I am happy with my [natural] dark cool-toned brunette look.

As I have already mentioned in several previous posts, I am currently trying to figure out what products I still need to add to my routine. I have also used up several that I have been loving, so am looking for a replacement. Or should I just re-purchase the old favourites?

Here are my picks:

Hair Wish List Viviscal, Kerastase, Mason Pearson and MOPViviscal Maximum Strength Programme for Women – Feel Unique now have 20% off now, so I have already purchased it. And from Amazon.

I am seeing it everywhere now. Apparently it is supposed to be  a miracle-in-a-pill, and a lot of people swear by it. I did try Philip Kingsley “hair vitamins” in the past, by the way. So think about giving these a go. What if the results will be really great? I guess, we will see.

Morning Shower Routine: Kerastase, Oskia, Costes

I thought I’d start Monday with a quick post about my current morning shower routine. I have bought several new products last week, and absolutely enjoy using them, along with some old time favourites.

Here they are:

Morning Shower Routine Oskia, Kerastase and Costes

Costes Shower Gel, £18 for 200 ml from Cult Beauty

I already had a Costes soap, and this time decided to get a shower gel. And, it’s the same signature addictive scent of a” spicy, woody mix of coriander seeds, white pepper, laurel, oriental woods, incense, musk and a touch of rose”.  Shower gel is a very boring purchase, unless it’s this one.  Not only I’ve got a tube for myself, but also one for a very special friend.

Kérastase Densifique Bain Densité Bodifying Shampoo (review), 250 ml for £14.45 from Feel Unique.

This is still one of my favourite shampoos, it

October 2014 Beauty Favourites

I love writing Monthly Beauty Favourites posts, they make me analyse what products I used the most, and loved the best. I am also always happy when you find a good product through my recommendations 😉

October 2014 Beauty Favourites Makeup4all Clarins Max Factor Kerastase Aromatherapy Associates BECCA


Not gonna lie, October was a rough month for me, a lot of stress and lack of sleep. Most of the time I don’t bother with a good base that much, but this month I was constantly “rocking” dark circles, horrible skin-tone and even some breakouts. I just looked very tired in general.

So to imitate the “I-am-doing-great-thanks” skin I was using my favourite Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector by BECCA all over the face as a base to give me some glow. Since I have very dry skin, it did not look greasy or shiny on me, in fact, I loved the effect.

Then I followed with  Clarins’ Tinted Moisturizer, which is one of my favourite products for face, ever. Read the review to find out why it is that special.

If you read this post, you probably know that I have been ignoring the blushers lately.  So, of course I had to include

Kérastase Densifique Bain Densité Bodifying Shampoo Review. Rave

I personally think that you just can’t go wrong with Kerastase! Their products are not the cheapest but they work, and they work wonders when you get the range which is targeted at  your hair type. Sometimes it is better to have a consultation in the salon.

I have decided to try  the brand’s relatively new range Densifique, which contains Hyaluronic and is supposed to give you fuller texturized hair.

I have picked up Kérastase Densifique Bain Densité Bodifying Shampoo  which is described as a “new generation of polymers able to instantly provide smoothness, texture & uniformisation of the fiber.”

And it is just so unbelievably good! The best shampoo I have used in a while.

New Beauty Launches: Jo Malone and Kerastase

Today I’ve decided to share some updates from two of my favourite brands, hair care – Kerastase and perfumery – Jo Malone. Both brands are bringing out new products soon.

Jo Malone’s new cologne –  Wood Sage and Sea Salt sounds very exciting.
