Hi Guys!

Garnier is one of those brands that I must admit I do tend to overlook, it’s kind of part of the furniture in my local Boot’s store, and the products never really seem to jump out at me – unless there’s an offer on. I’m pleased to say that Garnier have really upped their game of late though, with the launch of their latest Ultimate Blends hair care and body ranges, and Moisture Bomb skincare products.

The Ultimate Blends hair care ranges cover pretty much every hair care need, Garnier have actually spent 7 years working on these products, whilst listening to the feedback of women across the country to create products that cater for every hair care need. The ranges include –

  • The Sleek Restorer – for dry and frizzy hair.
  • The Colour Illuminator – for coloured hair.
  • The Nourishing Repairer – for very dry / damaged hair.
  • The Marvellous Transformer – for dry / dull hair.
  • The Silky Smoother – for hair with split ends.
  • The Shine Revitaliser – for normal hair.
  • The Weightless Nourisher – for dry and brittle hair.
  • The Delicate Soother – for delicate hair and sensitive scalps.

I have the Ultimate Blends Delicate Soother Range, which is perfect for those with delicate hair and / or sensitive scalps, and basically anyone that has issues similar to these. The first thing you’ll notice about these products is the smell – they smell amazing – and I don’t know of anyone that’s tried them that thinks otherwise! The Delicate Soother range contains rice cream and oat milk to nourish, soften & protect the hair as well as the scalp, whilst leaving hair feeling silky soft and shiny.

I’ve been trying out the Delicate Oat Shampoo, Conditioner and Face and Body Balm over the last couple of weeks and I’m really impressed with the results. I love how the hair products leave my hair feeling nourished and super shiny, and the balm is a gorgeous light body moisturiser that just smells divine on my skin.

The Moisture Bomb 3-in-1 Day Cream (£7.99) is also a fantastic product – perfect for those will dull or dehydrated skin, this moisturiser contains two antioxidant superfruit extracts: Amla and Pomegranate, combined with daily UVA/UVB protection and a high concentration of Plant Serum to give skin up to 24 hours of continuous hydration. The formula has an ultra-light texture which sinks into the skin, leaving skin feeling hydrated, smoother and radiant.

And the Moisture Bomb Night Cream (£7.99) – this is a slightly heavier version of the 3-in-1 day cream, again injected with Amla, Pomegranate and Plant Serum to give an intensively hydrating formula that helps to smooth the skin, plump out fine lines and leave skin looking visibly younger. This product has a gel-cream texture which is much lighter than I would have expected, and just like the day cream it sinks into the skin quickly, leaving no residue. I think the 3-in-1 Day Cream and Night Cream work really well together as an affordable duo, which are perfect for those with dryer skin types.

The Ultimate Blends range and Moisture Bomb range are available now from Boots.

Moroccanoil Luxury Travel Set | Review

Posted on September 6, 2014

moroccanoil-travel-set

Hi Guys!

The other day I came home to a fab little travel haircare set from Moroccanoil. I already use the Treatment which is fantastic, so I was really excited to try some of their other products out!

This set includes:

  • Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo – 70ml
  • Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner – 70ml
  • Luminous Hair Spray – 75ml
  • Travel Size Moroccanoil Oil Treatment – 25ml
  • Travel Size Moroccanoil Oil Treatment – 10ml

In case you haven’t heard of Moroccanoil, they are the originator and leading manufacturer of professional Argan Oil hair products. Moroccanoil’s proprietary Argan oil blend is rich in vitamins and natural elements that fortify the hair, including Vitamin F (Omega 6), Vitamin A to improve elasticity, Vitamin E to protect against free-radicals, and Phenols to shield against environmental stressors.

So, on to the kit! I’m not sure why two bottles of Oil Treatment are included, but hey I’m not complaining! This limited edition travel kit contains the most popular products that Moroccanoil offer, and they definitely don’t disappoint! I’ve used the set a few times now and my usually lifeless hair just feels so much better. The Treatment Oil is still definitely my favourite product, but I’d definitely recommend the shampoo and conditioner too if you have ‘unhappy’ hair like me. After using these my hair definitely feels shinier and stronger without a doubt. Also, apart form the fact that these products are great for your hair, they come in a handy little travel kit, which is perfect for when you’re going away on vacay! 😉

You can find the full range of Morocconoil products available from Lookfantastic.
