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

Malin + Goetz Essential Kit Review and Photos

I have got this Malin + Goetz set at Zuneta for £20 as  for myself as a Christmas gift. But it looks like that the kit is no longer available. But I am still going to let you know my impression as you can always get each product on its own.

I just love getting different kits with mini products as it’s a great way to try the brand without braking the bank.

So what do you get?


  • Grapefruit Face Cleanser (full size 236 ml – £ 25)
  • Vitamin E Face Moisturiser (full size 118 ml – £ 36)
  • Vitamin B5 Body Moisturiser (full size 236 ml – £28)
  • Bergamot Body Wash (full size 236 ml – £ 15.50)
  • Cilantro Hair Conditioner (full size 236 ml – £16.50)
  • Peppermint Shampoo (full size 236 ml – £ 16)

First of all I have to say that I absolutely love the design, I think it’s brilliant. And this kit was very useful when I was travelling.

Hair Products

I absolutely loved the shampoo and I would probably re-purchase it although I find that it is very expensive (236 ml – £ 16  and 473 ml for £ 30). I adore the fresh mint scent and it reminds me of mint sweets that I love. I find that it is very refreshing for summer and this shampoo is just a pleasure to use.

As for the hair conditioner – I really dislike cilantro which  is also known as coriander so I can’t say that I’ve enjoyed using this conditioner as it has a strong scent of coriander. I’d rather put a conditioner with other scent, really.

The face wash is

Philip B African Shea Butter Gentle & Conditioning Shampoo

I have already written about Philip B Peppermint and AvocadoVolumizing and Clarifying Shampoo and Nordic Wood Hair and Body Shampoo and I really loved both.

But what about the brand’s African Shea Butter Gentle & Conditioning Shampoo?

I would say that gentle and conditioning are the perfect words to describe this product. In fact, it leaves the hair soft, smooth and, dare I say, in a better condition?  Plus it saves time, as you don’t need a

Pixie Lott Paint Hair Chalks Collection

I was sent these cool hair chalks to feature them for the festival season but completely forgot to use them on my blonde baby cousin who was visiting with my aunt back in summer (I live far away from most of my family), and take any photos, and then I forgot about this feature, until now. I saw the draft sitting in my inbox this week, and thought it would be a good time to  mention the Pixie Lott Paint Hair Chalks, as they may be a great addition to your Halloween costume.

Pixie Lott Paint Hair Chalks Collection Review and SwatchesI was obsessed with the idea of the hair chalks, and even bought myself this Anastasia Hair Powders a while ago. And it is really fun, and easy to use. You basically just apply the chalks and set them with a hair spray, but there are detailed instructions and tips on the packaging anyway.

As you can see, this is

L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Souffle D’Or Shampoo Review

I was looking for a new shampoo and L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil range caught my attention.  There are actually two shampoos in the range, and I’ve chosen the sparkling one just because it was pretty.

LOreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Souffle D'Or Shampoo ReviewAnd I really, really like it. Everything about it. Starting from a  very convenient pump, and the sparkles to a nice subtle oriental-y scent and the performance, of course.

In the official description the brand promises “lightweight nourishment”, and it is exactly what it does. I don’t
