L’Oreal Professionnel Fiberceutic Intra-Cylane Treatment

I like L’Oreal Professionnel range and I’ve tried several series in the past and liked the results so I would love to  try this newest addition to the range – L’Oreal Professionnel Fiberceutic Intra-Cylane.

I usually go to the salon where they use LP or Kerastase so if I  get brave enough I may even go this week. Why brave enough? Because often the visits to the hairdressers are traumatic as I get NOT what I was asking for. But I better stop right now or I can go on and on about it… Just after I’ve found a great hairdresser she left the city.

 

 

And here is what they write on the official website:

“Hair rehab starts here! The serum in this two-step in-salon treatment is enriched with Intra-Cylane ®, a water-activated molecule that is able to deposit in the hair as evaporation takes place. It is designed to help reinforce the protective layer of hair. Followed by the special sealer, hair feels softer and looks revitalised.

How to Use

Step 1: Fill the syringe with one dosage of serum. Apply the serum to shampooed, towel-dried hair. Do not rinse.

Step 2: Apply the appropriate restorative hair-sealing treatment, depending on hair type, thick or fine. Leave in for 5 minutes. Lather and rinse thoroughly.”

Sounds interesting. Have you tried this? Please share if you did!

 

L’Oreal La Couleur Infallible Eye Shadows in 026 Golden Mahogany. Review and Swatches

Remember my post about L’Oreal Color Infaillible Eye Shadows in All Night Blue?

I liked them so much that I wanted to buy more shades and when I was looking for swatches on-line I came across this post (definitely take a look!) and knew that I had to get 026 Golden Mahogany.

But L’Oreal has a strange system, I mean they have different shades for different countries and sometimes the names of the shades are different, too. Unfortunately,  I couldn’t find Golden Mahogany at my local L’Oreal counters.

I tweeted my disappointment the other day and… I was shocked but lovely Marija (who has a blog) got it for me as a Christmas present. That was such an amazing surprise, thank you Marija, you definitely made my day.

I won’t repeat myself, so if you want to know my thoughts about the quality of these eye shadows take a look here. But I want to tell you about the colour.

Based on the swatch that I saw I was expecting a true red shade but what did I get instead? Let’s take a look at the swatch, shall we?

Spring 2014 New Lip Products: Bourjois and L’Oreal

Mini Products for Travelling

I have been travelling quite a lot lately just for the weekends And, although you still want to get everything you may need, taking full-sized products is not the best option.

This is why I’ve kept a lot of mini-sized bottles and sample sized tubes/pots to re-use them. Here is an overview of what I like taking with me for a weekend-away.

Mini Decanted skincare products for travellingCleansers:

1. Micellar Water (in Yves Rocher vanilla bottle) – this is Garnier’s one to remove my makeup. It is gentle and effective.

2.  A good cleanser, Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm  – my favourite one at the moment (in a small pot).

Face Creams:

3. Day cream is REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream which is in a small pot, next to the cleanser. I’ve bought it some time ago, and should definitely review it soon.

4. Eye cream is Lumene SENSITIVE Comforting Eye Cream. It is not bad but not enough for my very dry skin.

5. Of course, I had to take the mini size of  my Holy Grail oil from REN.  I have re-purchased it three times, and if I could have only one skincare product -this would be it.

6. The night cream is also from REN, and it

Affordable Hair Care: L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology and Garner Fructis Full & Plush Review

I’ve promised to write more about affordable hair care products, and did a post about Pantene Breakage Defence range last month, so this month I want to share my impression about two other non-expensive products  from L’Oreal Elvive and Garner Fructis.

Affordable Hair Care L'Oreal Elseve and Garner Fructis Review shampoo & conditionerElvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo (available from Boots for £2.99 and Amazon)

After seeing numerous raves about this range, I went out and bought a shampoo and a double serum hoping to get that fantastic volume everyone was talking about  for a cheap price.

Unfortunately, I did not see why people were so in love with it. Yes, I could see some volume but that
