L’Oreal Professionel Force Vector Serie Review and Photos

I’ve promised  a review about the newest line from L’Oreal Professionel – Force Vector. If you want to find out more about the line and 5 products read this post because I just don’t want to repeat everything here.

About the Force Vector Serie

“New Force Vector counters this damage with Glycocell, the latest in haircare technology from L’Oréal Professionnel. Glycocell combines Incell technology and Royal Jelly Extract to deliver targeted strength and reinforcement to fragile, weak hair. Incell strengthens the natural cohesion of the hair and increases its resistance to external stressors, for long-lasting conditioning results. Royal Jelly Extract is a nutrient-rich substance produced by bees that provides concentrated essential amino acids and vitamins to the hair. Together these technologies are designed to reinforce hair that has been compromised due to external aggressions, leaving it stronger and more resistant to breakage. “

I’ve got three products our of 5 because I don’t need Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Conditioner and Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Thermo-Active Treatment.

This means what I got:

  1. Force Refill Intense Reinforcing In-Salon Treatment
  2. Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Shampoo
  3. Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Masque

And now I will tell you my impressions about each product that I’ve been using since November.

Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Shampoo(250 ml),£9.50 or $21.00

I finished this shampoo last week and already got a drugstore one and I miss the L’Oreal Shampoo a lot so I will be getting the new one soon. But this time from the other serie (I am thinking avout Volume Expand).

First of all I have to tell you that I have a thin and oily hair. My hair really looked so much better, thicker and healthier when I was using this shampoo.  The bonus is that I absolutely love how it smells and you need a small amount of shampoo to wash your hair.

There is only one negative thing. My hair gets oily very soon after this shampoo but I can’t say that I mind that because I wash my hair every 2 days. My hairdresses told me that it is because the shampoo contains some oild that “cover”  the hair.

Also I wanted to see the result that this shampoo gives the fine hair so I asked my friend to try it and to tell the result. After using this shampoo for a while my friend told me the same! Her hair looked amazing but she had to wash it more often.

So I guess it’s better to use it when you have dry hair.Also I would recommend you to get this shampoo from an on-line shop because you will have to pay more in the salon just like I did.

January 2014 Beauty Favourites

It’s the last day of January, so it means that it’s my dearest brother’s Birthday, time for monthly favourites.

First of all, this month it’s been all about the face oils, different ones, some of  them are pictured below. As I’ve shared recently I’ve been walking a lot, thinking more about the food I eat and about my skincare, and I can definitely see the positive changes in the way I feel, and in the way my skin looks.

Oils for Face Estelle & Thild, Angela Langford, Aromatherapy AssociatesYou can read my post about the oils shown above here. In fact, as I am writing this, I plan on purchasing some new oils. I’ve heard so many great things about Tarte’s Maracuja Oil and Josie Maran’s oil, so have to give them a go! Or maybe I should just get this set? It looks SO good!

I have been also loving all my body and hair oils and plan to get some  new ones, too. Making the list, so your recommendations are welcomed.

As for other beauty products, I’ve been loving:

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR in Metallic Pomegranate (review)

It is such a gorgeous brownish purple with golden shimmer, my new love in terms of eye shadows.

Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in Rose

Clarifying Cream-to-Foam Cleanser by Lancome and Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Cleanser by Vichy.Review

Today I would like to tell you about the skin products that I’ve been using for a while now and that I really liked. Of course skin care is personal so the fact that I liked these products doesn’t mean that you will.  I am talking about Clarifying Cream-to-Foam Cleanser by Lancome and Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Cleanser by Vichy.*

1. Crème Radiance, Clarifying Cream-to-Foam Cleanser, $24.50 for 125 ml

A Luxurious Balance of Science and Nature: Reveal Purified, Pampered Skin.

This gentle cream-to-foam cleanser with antioxidant White Lotus and soothing Rose de France penetrates deep into the pores without over-drying to gently remove makeup, even waterproof, dissolve impurities and purify the skin.

Massage over wet face and throat. Rinse with lukewarm water. Follow with Tonique Radiance for clarified and luminous skin.

Dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested for safety.

My impression:

I use this product only when I take a bath because I try not to wash my face very often and I don’t use scrub for face anymore. First of all I’d like to say that I absolutely love the scent of this cleanser, just divine. Moreover, I love how my skin feels after it, so clean, smooth and fresh. Also you need a tiny amount of it or at least I do because I’ve had this mini version since December and I still have more than a half of it. Also my skin doesn’t feel dry at all and I’ve noticed some improvements in the condition of my skin.

Julia Roberts for Lancome and Diane Kruger for L’Oreal

julia roberts pretty woman lancome

I remember when I was about 12 my friends who were 18-20 were talking about famous women and what they like on their face. They were talking about lips, noses, eyes etc. I was very surprised because at that age I did not pay any attention to such things. I also remember the discussion they had about Julia Roberts and her lips & smile as if it was yesterday. One of the girls told me that one day I will pay attention to such details, too. And they were so right! 🙂

Speaking of Julia Roberts , now she is the spokeswoman for Lancome! And what do you like about her? What is your favourite movie with Julia? I remember the good old times when I was watching Pretty Woman and Runaway Bride with my parents ))

If you are a fan of beautiful blond German actress Diane Kruger I have great news for you to. Now Diane is

Lip Products For the Weekend Away

I was away with my friends for the weekend, and it was exactly what I needed, we had such an amazing time, walked around, tried new food and just laughed a lot.

I thought I’d share what lip products I had with me. I could actually have less but since I wanted to make an effort for once and have a choice I took quite a few. And here they are together with everything else I had with me, so that you’d see the proportions.

Plus,  I’ve decided to share about the lip products, as regular readers will recognize all the other products as I talk about them non-stop anyway. But if you have any questions about any of the products – please leave me a comment.

Makeup Products for the weekend makeup4all

Also, since I usually talk about luxury lip products, I thought it’d be nice to include some budget-friendly options this time.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector. (review and swatches) – the best “nude”

I am totally in love with this line. I have already used up 01 Rose and now am half way through Rosewood. These are absolutely brilliant, just like the glossy version. I also have two more shades which are equally great!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Potion Devilish Nectar – just for fun.

This is actually a  lip gloss with Chilli which makes your lips fuller.  It also contains  golden shimmer so the lips do look pretty. I did not get a chance to use it this time but it was nice to have options.  I will
