Amargan Hair Therapy Oil - My Number 1 Argan Oil

Leave a Comment

Over the last few years Argan oil has been all the rage and a must have in your hair care routine and ever since I was introduced to it I have been obsessed, I literally have two bottles in my cupboard just in case one runs out. 

This oil contains Moroccan Argan oil, keratin, avocado oil, jojoba oil, grape seed oil & pro vitamin B5, all ingredients that make this product a fantastic treatment for your hair.
The oil its self has quite a thick constancy’s but It soaks into the hair so quickly so you're not left with a greasy feeling or effect.It also conditions the hair really well so if you suffer from dry ends you will really notice a difference.

I normally apply this to wet hair after washing, them comb my hair through as this oil works great at de-tangling hair, it leaves the hair feeling amazing soft and I get compliments on how shiny my hair is.
If I am straightening my hair I like to run a little oil through to give it that little extra shiny boost.

You only need a pump or two so a little goes a long way and it smells absolutely amazing.

I could say enough about how much I love this product. I would recommend this to anybody and most of my friends now use it too.


Urban Decay Madness

Leave a Comment

It’s safe to say I went a little Urban Decay mad in 2013, I already owned a few eye shadows but never really taken much interest into the brand before. It wasn't until they open up a Counter at my local Debenhams that my obsession began.

The hype really caught on this year for Urban Decay, especially with the release of the Naked 3 Pallet this year among other products which enticed more and more people I know to buy from this brand. Now after coming down from the Urban Decay high, I want to reflect more on the products.

My Top Urban Decay Products:

(From Left to Right ABC Gum, Easy Baked, Smog, Twice Baked, Backed, Midnight Cowboy, Moonflower & Space Cowboy)

The Eye Shadows

Without a shadow of a doubt Urban Decays eye shadows are some of the best out there. They are hands down the best I have ever used! Absolutely amazing. 
The texture is to die for; they apply wonderfully and last so great even when I don't use a primer (I do use an Urban Decay Eye shadow primer with these eye shadows when I need a little extra staying power)
I love the colours they have on offer and how what you see in the pot is they it will look like applied to your eye.
Their new and improved formula has really made them top of my eye shadow list. If offers a pigment infusion system so the colour you see in the pot is the colour you get. I also love the fact that all the eye shadows are made so you can make your very own pallet instead of having loads of little pots about.
I really can stress enough how amazing these eye shadows are, at £14 a pop they are on the expensive side but I think they are worth it. If you haven’t tried them yet I highly recommend you do!! You will fall head over heels.

The Naked Flushed Pallet
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!! It’s a great 3 in one products that offers a bronze, highlighter and Blush (I use urban decay good karma blush brush for this pallet).
It's a pretty fool proof contour kit for those who have either not mastered the art or if you are needing to travel light its slim line case and mirror make it highly beneficially (I always take with me if I'm not feeling like taking a load of make up around). 
I find that the tones blend really well with my skin, I have read some bad reviews saying that they fine the product cakey and that the highlighter emphasizes imperfections on skin such as pores but I couldn't fault it!

The Naked Foundation 
This is my newest product from the Urban Decay range which I have only started using it after Christmas.
I had been using Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation for the last 4 years (which I love to death) but when the bottle came to an end I thought id try out this foundation. 
With 18 shades to the foundation offers more options for an impeccable match. The consistency of the foundation means that blends out really well and gives you a medium to full coverage. I do think this is a great foundation thought personally it do not feel it has enough coverage for me. Also my skin started break out around the time I started using the foundation thought I’m not blaming the foundation as It was Xmas so a lot of Chocolate, Wines and other bad foods were had by me so this could of well added the skin break out, this in mind I will be sticking at and maybe in a months’ time I will have even better things to say about it. 

Arbonne RE9 Advance Set 2013 Review

Leave a Comment

I wanted to do this review an this range was my “main” range of 2013. I was first introduced to this range by a work college who was marketing this company as a part time job.  
Basically the products cannot be sold in store as they need to contain and certain shelf life and these products don’t contain any of those chemically as they are based on botanical principles. They also don’t splash out major amounts of money advertising their product so you won’t see any of these products in magazines and that’s where the marketing comes in. Basically it’s a word of mouth tactic where you get people to join marketing campaign; in return you get discount on the products and earn money when you yourself get others to sign up. 
The set itself cost a whopping  £257 on the officially website, I know, it’s a lot right! I didn't pay that much I paid about £90 on Ebay, which works out to about £15 per product which isn't too bad in comparison.
Now for the product review and just before I start I just want to stay that I try to do honest and open reviews for all my products weather it’s a fanatics review or not so good.  Everyone is different, we have different tastes and our bodies are unique, so things I like and work for me might not be for you a vice versa. So if you really want to try a products and you read one or two bad review I suggest you don’t get put off and go ahead and try it (maybe if there are loads and loads of bad reviews you might want to stay away).

RE9 Advanced Smoothing Facial Cleanser 90ML
This is a cleanser that that does do its jobs. It gives a good deep clean and gets all that clogged up oils, dirty and make up on your skin. Afterwards my skin felt smooth and so clean. This is a great cleansing product and I would recommend. The only issue I have with it is that it is very soapy and can feel quite drying.  6/10

RE9 Advanced Regenerating Toner 50ML
Love this toner! It’s really refreshing and smells great. My skin feels really refreshed once I’ve used the product. It’s great that it comes with a spray form which adds to the refreshment. In my opinion it’s a good toner but I will be looking at others after it is finished. 7/10

RE9 Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum 30ML
I must admit I have never used Serum before I’ve used this one so I have nothing I can compare too. This product felt great from the moment I put it on, making my face so smooth, like a baby’s bottom as they say, this is a product that I’m very very happy with. 7.5/10

RE9 Advanced Corrective Eye Crème 15ML
I have always had an issue with the bags and dark circles under my eyes so a good eye crème is very important to me. For this cream I’m a bit torn with my thoughts on it, it makes the skin under my eyes smooth but not does not make them feel refreshed as I would like. It has a soapy smell to it like the cleanser which for me isn’t to my taste I guess. It’s a good product but I will be looking at a new eye cream once this had finished. 6.5/10

RE9 Advanced Restorative Day Crème 37ML
I don’t want to be negative but I did not like this product. I smelt and felt like I was putting sun screen on my face. My face felt dry and not at all moisturised.I used it for a time but then had to get another moisturiser as this just wasn't working for me. 3/10

RE9 Advanced Night Repair Crème 30ML
Unlike the day cream and night cream is amazing, Its one for my favourite night creams every! It felt like I was putting a blanket if silk over my face and it just what your skin needs after a long day. I would absolutely recommend and get this product again, it is my favourite product from the set. A must have. 9/10

Overall this Is a good set, maybe not a great one in my opinion and I’m not sure it’s worth the full marked up price but if you can get if for £90 like myself then it would be worth what you got. These products are anti ageing products so they would benefit mature skin as I cannot say I have noticed a difference on my skin.

Would love to know others experiences and thought on these products.

Have you used Arbonne RE9 Products? And what did you think?
