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.

Garnier Fresh Essentials Vitamin Encreased Cleansing Wipes Review

I really love using Garnier Simply Essentials 2-in-1 Makeup Remover, and I am actually using a second bottle now so I thought I’d give their makeup removing wipes a go.

I would not recommend using wipes on a daily basis but they are great for when you are travelling or can’t wash your face properly for some other reason.

To tell the truth, I was impressed with these, definitely the best wipes I have tried. They are well-soaked with a remover so they don’t drag the skin. In fact, they softly remove the makeup and don’t dry out the skin.

I did not really use waterproof makeup but I did a good job removing the regular one. Just make sure that you hold them long enough so that it dissolves mascara, there is no need to rub!

I will totally re-purchase in the future.

I am a huge believer in a hand cream, and I always have one in my handbag, always. It is a necessity in colder months to protect the skin, to moisturise and nourish it. Also, we all know – the way your hands look can give away your age. And I personally can’t stand dried out skin. Applying hand cream is a pure relaxing little luxury, especially when
