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.

Artdeco Long Lasting Liquid  Eyeliner in Black 01

Ever since Rouge Bunny Rouge changed the nib of my favourite eye liner, I am on a hunt for a prefect replacement, as it was the one I used pretty much every day. This time I’ve got the ArtDeco one, and it looked almost identical on-line, but unfortunately it is not in real life. However, it is a good one and I hope I will enjoy using it.

Orly Nail Defence Strengthening Protein Treatment

After a very bad experience at a nail salon (this is what happens when you cheat on your manicurist who works far from both your home and work) – I really need to restore my nails,  and this

February 2016 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for February favourites, and considering that I was sick for 10+ days in the shortest month of the year, there isn’t that much to show. But here are the products that really stood out to me.

Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter (review)

Moisturising shower product that smells of almonds, pistachios and vanilla. Oh, yes! It is an instant cheer-me-up and works great for shaving, too.

Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumising Mousse

I’ve been on a hunt for a new product for voluminous hair for some time now, and this is the one I’ve picked up, as mentioned here. I was a bit worried, as I haven’t used a mousse in more than 10 years but this one really delivers. Mousse Bouffante creates beautiful big hair without being sticky or making the hair look or feel greasy.

Uriage Gyn-Phy Intimate Hygiene Protective Cleansing Gel

Probably the best product for intimate hygiene I’ve ever used, it is gentle but effective, smells really nice and is a great way to start and finish the day with. We talk so much about facial cleansers and shower gels but not enough about the intimate washes. And this is a great one, go get it.

Top 16 Features of 2016

I remember when I have just launched Makeup4all [almost] 8 years ago now, I  would check the analytics every day, sometimes even more than once. As Metallica’s song goes “Sad But True”.  But lately I check the analytics maybe once a month just to see what features you loved the most to make some conclusions for the upcoming posts.

And here are actually 16 most viewed posts of 2016, and I have included only the features about the products that are still available. I was actually surprised to see the most popular review of 2016 was of a  Rouge Bunny Rouge eye pencil. They have recently launched a new shade, so I better write up about it soon.

I was also a bit surprised to see that Max Factor  reviews got a ridiculous amount of views, and I really did not expect that.  But, to be honest, I am happy, as I have a very special love for Max Factor, not only it was the brand I used to buy as a teenager with my first earned money but also, it was the first brand I have ever worked with for Makeup4all, not to mention the history of the brand, so I am happy that the reviews of their products get so many views, I genuinely love so many of them.
