Revlon Be Fabulous End Repairing Serum Review

revlon-be-fabulous-hair-recovery-ends-repair-serum

Pros:

Makes my split ends look more “healthy” and taken care off.

Cons:

You need a lot per use of this serum.

More:

Split ends is one of my biggest hair issues (except a DIY blond dye which keeps me up at night), so I jump onto any product which promises to help! I have been using this serum both in wet and dry hair, with equally satisfying effect. The serum is absorbed very fast and makes my split ends more soft, hides away frizz in my hair and has a great overall effect. With overall effect I mean that my hair looks very sleek and much more healthy then it actually is (by actually is I count the time since I last visited a hairdresser for a trim).

L’Oréal Purify & Mattify Eucalyptus Clay Mask Review

sk30_3

Pros:

Removes all excess oil from my skin.

Cons:

The smell of eucalyptus is a bit too discreet for my taste.

More:

I got this mask after too much time in the sun – using all that sunscreen on my face not only caused my skin to break out but also made it oily. Normally I have dry skin so I kind of didn‘t know what to do – switching all my products – which target dry skin – to products for oily skin felt like a bit of an economic pit and unnecessary. Therefore I decided to invest in this mask – which is friendly to a low budget – and see what happened.

I like that the mask is easy to apply, and also pretty easy to remove (some mud masks can be hell). It did live up to its promise making my skin look much more matte, and made it feel extremely smooth and soft. About the cleansing part – even though I felt my skin was much softer, it was not by any means cleaner – my blackheads didn‘t disappear at all. So in that sense it doesn‘t do what it promises – but then again, I have never meet a mud mask that does. Overall I was very happy with the results – especially considering the price – now I want my dry skintype back please.

REVLON PROFESSIONAL BE FABULOUS HAIR RECOVERY Shampoo For DAMAGED HAIR REVIEW

16457eac20051bb5ee2416ea13d9a32d

Pros:

Nice package.

Cons:

No effect on my dry and damaged hair.

More:

I have my Revlon favourites – and this one is not one of them unfortunately.  Just like the conditioner (read review here) – my hair gets greasy after two days of use, and I simply don‘t see any effect on my beyond dry hair (which is crying for help). My split ends are just the same – and even though I think my hair looks pretty sleak the first two days after use, I hate when it gets greasy on the third day. I think the package is nice, and the smell although a bit synthetic – nice too..But I would not repurchase this one, and will continue to look for another remedy for my very dry and tired hair.

Revlon Professional be Fabulous Hair Recovery Conditioner for damaged hair Review

revlon-be-fabulous-hair-recovery-cream-keratin-con

Pros:

Lathers well.

Cons:

My hair is greasy two days after use.

More:

Dear readers, today we are on a rampage..not cause we are well rested after a sunny vacation but because vacation is so close that we can actually see it, and therefore we decided to post twice in one day. That rarely happens for us, since a review should be well thought out and we test everything for ages before giving you our opinions, to make sure they are well thought out.

Anyways, back to this conditioner – it feels very good when you apply it – lathery and promising. But the smell is a bit synthethic (too much like a hair salon). After use my hair looks good for a few days – maybe one or two – and then slowly turns more and more greasy. Since I rarely get greasy hair this conditioner gets thumbs down big time!! It didn‘t give my hair that “anti-damage” boost that one would expect either!

Revlon Be Fabulous Fine Hair Volumizing Spray Review

volume_hair_spray

Pros:

Gives my hair nice structure…

Cons:

…and more volume (though not as much as one could expect)..

More:

I have very fine hair – and of course dream of volume (why can‘t one just be happy with what one‘s got?!)..This spray gives my hair more volume (not crazy much but enough) and texture (aka it doesn‘t “fly around” as much – as it usually does)..It smells very nice of perfume, not chemical or of candy – which I really appreciate.

I have in the past experienced rashes from volume sprays – but not from this one – even though I spray it on like 15 – 20 sprays daily.

#LIPGLAM Review

lipglam-lbnllb-100-natural-lip-balm-12ml-2907-p

Pros:

Makes my lips soft instantly.

Cons:

The effect doesn‘t last for 8 hours and I reapply this lip balm often.

More:

This little fellow has been my friend through many of my nightshifts – saving my dry lips and hands many many times. First and foremost, when I choose a lip balm it has to be practical – easy and hygienic to apply (no glass jars that you have to stick your fingers into). Secondly I need instant effect – working many night shifts means my skin dries out – and I can go from having perfectly fine lips in the afternoon to deep painful ultra dry cracks the next day. Thirdly, I always use some kind of balm as a base before lipstick application – sometimes even playing around mixing two different colours – which is possible when you use a balm base.

This lip balm is makes my lips and skin instantly soft, and the effect lasts a few hours (though not eight hours as promised). It is a great base when applying lipstick. The package is light and easy to apply. The lip balm doesn‘t really smell of anything which I also like and is free from parabens. The package says you can also use it for eyebrows, rashes, dry cuticles and split ends – which I haven‘t tried – only used it on my hands and lips (if you have tried these other applications – leave a comment and let me know how you liked it).

The best budget beauty products – the complete list

pg-116-june-issue-kate-moss-vogue-29apr13-patrick-demarchelier_b_1080x720

We think that beauty should be simple – one doesn‘t have to spend tons of money to look pretty and feel happy. We all know that the best advice to look and feel splendid are free – tons of sleep, a lot of water and keeping a happy mind. But of course we are no strangers to using a little help – and since we rather spend our money on lattes and pretty dresses we wanted to share our list of budget products that makes us feel like a million bucks for a lot less…

  1. Smooth skin is number one for me personally and though I like expensive lotions and potions I always keep coming back to my favourite budget oilbaby oil – makes your skin fantastically smooth and costs next to nothing (pssst apparently sweet almond oil from the baby department at the french pharmacies is a well kept secret of french beauty..).
  2. If you are one of those girls (or boys) who are into a polished look a good hair brush is a must – the HH Simonsen wet brush – saved my hair and I have been using it ever since. Being ridiculously cheap (around 15 dollars, the cost – per – use is pretty sweet) it is one of my best budget buys EVER.
  3. Since happiness is a must for beauty – in our opinion – at least if you want that glowing  fantastic va-va-voom beauty. I get that from many things in life but one of the is a good relaxing shower (repeat after me: its the small things in life…) – and the Le Petit Marseilles Miel de Lavande shower cream – is my favourite shower gel. This one is hard to find outside of France, costs next to nothing (3 dollars), makes my skin super soft but best of all – smells fantastic of lavendar.
  4. For me a great hair oil is a staple and the Orofluido hair oil – has saved my dry hair. It costs around 20 dollars, but a 100 ml bottle lasted me for about 2,5 years so I still consider it a great investment.
  5. Finally even when on a budget an extra a bit unnecessary but oh so indulgent beauty product can make your bathroom feel a bit more extravagant – that one product for me has been  my bottle of Avene face water – which has stayed with me for the past 2 years. Yes it feels a bit stupid to pay for water, but my bottle has lasted me for over 2 years and god does it feel great to splash ones face with some thermal water and march out to meet the day ahead.

Revlon Professional Be Fabulous Cream Shampoo and Conditioner for normal/thick hair Review

41kzq5tw5tl-_sy355_

Pros:

Gives my hair great volume.

Cons:

My hair looks dirty already 2 days after use.

More:

I think this shampoo and conditioner are very good budget options to my usual Bamboo and Alterna products (which I love but are pretty pricey). They give my hair great volume, smell good and my hair looks very “put together” after use (aka it looks like I actually have a hair stylist and some kind of vision when it comes to my hair – and not just an explosion of volume). The conditioner makes my hair feel soft immediately and can be used solo without a mask since it is so hydrating and nourishing.

Since I have thick hair I only wash it once every 5 days, but when using this shampoo and conditioner my hair looked dirty already after 2-3 days – which is a big minus for me. I made my granny use this shampoo and conditioner too and she had the same result.

Eos Shimmer Sheer Pink Lip Balm Review

eos-shimmer-lip-balm-pink-pearl-open

Pros:

Soo easy to apply evenly.

Cons:

My lips are dry again one hour after use.

More:

After being into heavy needs a browns this winter I‘m feeling like being Ms Spring  – all easy and floating in pastels and light blue nails ( ohh that nice Chanel Coco blue shade…) – and of course I want my lips to be pink with that.

This is my first Eos lip balm and I‘m now a fan – for a person whom usually struggles to put on any lip make-up evenly this one was very very easy to apply due to its sphere shape. It also feels very soft and hydrating on my lips without being sticky (shea butter and jojaba oil). And the price is fair. I like that you can decide on how much pink you want on your lips by layering this balm, without it feeling like you are wearing teater make-up.

Cons: my lips feel dry again about an hour after use.

Ok guys I‘m gone run out into friday in my floating dress smelling of roses with pinks lips and freshly manicured nails…just kidding I‘m heading to a night shift. Have a lovely friday you all!
