Last Tuesday I was invited to a wedding. This is how my mani and lips looked like. But what about my hair? I just wanted it to be straight and shiny. My hair is staright and shiny but I wanted it to look better than usual. So I thought that it’s time to get some shine spray.
I’ ve tried several “shiny” products for hair but what was the result? My hair became greasy and oily very soon and I had to wash it on the next day. But I still wanted to try something out so I went shopping and found this !I really like Nutri-Gloss Light Shampoo (read review here) so I wanted to give a try to this spray. Plus it is not expensive.
This is what is written about this spray. Information is from L’Oreal’s website.
Is your mid to long hair fine, or does it tend to get greasy? Does it need a light weight spritz to give it shine, and leave it instantly detangled?
The L’Oréal laboratories have developed Elseve Nutri-Gloss Light Conditioning Shine Spray. A leave-in shine enhancing conditioner you can use everyday, in a spray that’s light and quick to use. Weightless Detangling, Mirror Shine – Cashmere Touch.
Your hair is instantly detangled and manageable: combing is easy! Perfectly nourished, the fibre captures and reflects light. Your hair feels soft and light, with mirror like shine.
So light, can be used as a conditioning boost: On damp hair after washing with shampoo & conditioner, or instead of regular conditioner depending on hair condition. On dry hair, with a light spray to tame hair between washes or on the go! No need to rinse. Can be used every day for daily gloss.
So did I like the effect and is it really true?
What is written:
Indulge yourself. What better way to give yourself a little treatment on the go? This invigorating and tropically scented body spray with sweet papaya and juicy mango extracts wraps you in a veil of sheer moisture and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. A wonderful refresher to use at work or play. Spray genetously over body. Best to use after shower of bath.

Ingredients ( I’ve tried to make good photos):
Father’s Day is just around the corner but what is even more important to me; it’s my Father’s birthday tomorrow.
Both events inspired me to write this post. This is not really a Father’s Day gift guide as almost all the on-line shops have one, this is just a post about favourite grooming products of my men. By my men I mean my father, male friend and my younger brother.
So a must have for my Dad is Vichy Capital Soleil Homme Body Spray with SPF30.
It is his second bottle actually. My Dad is not really a sun protection fan, he just has sun allergy so he must use a sun protection. I have big doubts he would bother if allergy was not the case. He tried a lot of sun protection products from Bioderma to La Roche-Posay and he says that this one is his favourite because it’s clear and not sticky so that he can use it on the go. Plus it’s a spray so it’s very easy to use.
Who knows, maybe you can convince your man to use a sun protection with a help of this product.
My friend loves his L’Oreal Professionnel shampoos.
There is a small but important detail that I should mention
If you have never heard of terre d’Oc, it’s a luxury organic skincare from France. All the products are divided into five groups: Japan, Bali, India, Burkina Faso and Morrocco. Each range is based on the countries’ beauty rituals and most popular ‘beauty ingredient’ sourced in the region. I think it is a brilliant idea.
I was very lucky to get two products from the Japan range from the Tender Loving Skincare shop to try out. I happen to absolutely love both. So today I will tell you about one of them which is Milky Perfume Cloud in Plum Tree Blossom.
It comes in a luxurious glass bottle with a beautiful design. This product is definitely to spoil yourself!
I love using it on the body, mostly arms and chest as I’d rather use something else on my legs to save this magical product for a longer time. It does feel hydrating and non-sticky at all, it doesn’t leave any white residue as well. I also love using it on my hair as it holds the scent longer than the body.
