Revlon Professional be Fabulous C.R.E.A.M. anti-frizz mask Review

Revlon-Professional-Be-Fabulous-Texture-Care-Smooth-Hair-CREAM-Mask-71620

Pros:

Makes my hair more smooth – as promised.

Cons:

Doesn‘t really help make frizz to disappear.

More:

I‘m trying to watch my budget – and this hair mask fits my new not spending too much money on my hair idea. And the struggle with frizzy hair has been utterly real for the past warm weeks for me – so I was curious if this mask could help the frizz. Verdict: my hair becomes more smooth as promised, but the frizz doesn‘t really disappear – which is super annoying – and against what was promised. So this mask will probably not be repurchased again, though I think it is pretty decent for its price point.

REVLON PROFESSIONAL BE FABULOUS C.R.E.A.M. CURL DEFINING SHAMPOO REVIEW

4623787

Pros:

Great for crazy curly hair.

Cons:

You need a lot per use.

More:

This is my favourite shampoo this year so far. I have  a pretty costly habit when it comes to hair care – and I really don‘t settle for less – so this is a bit of a “budget” product to me. Now don‘t get me wrong – I know I‘m privileged and spending tons of money on hair care is definitely a priority for me (just as buying living of carrots and omelettes for a week in a row to save money is too) . So I was pleasantly surprised but how great this shampoo works for my hair. My hair is messy and curly – and already after the first use I noticed my curls more defined – which I love. My hair also became smoother and more hydrated. Basically this is a great budget option for crazy curly hair like mine. Also, my hair usually looks pretty gloom a day before its time for a wash – but after I started using this shampoo my hair looks great all the way – and I even wash it a day later. And I will definitely re-purchase this shampoo. Negatives? You need a lot per use.

Revlon Professional be Fabulous Volume Texturizer Review

revlon-professional-be-fabulous-daily-care-fine-volume-texturizer-150ml

Pros:

Gives my hair great volume.

Cons:

No hydration at all as promised.

More:

This texturizer promises not only volume and great texture, but also hydration and hair repairment. The volume part works brilliantly – I really feel my hair is thicker after use, and the effect lasts until the next wash. I also can‘t feel that I‘m having an extra product in my hair – so the texture is very “natural”, which is a big plus. The minuses are that my hair is super dry still, so I see no benefit in that department, and I‘m not sure if this texturizer has any effect on that at all. Would I re-purchase this product? If I‘m desperate for volume I will.

Revlon Professional be FABULOUS Texture Care Smooth Hair C.R.E.A.M. Anti-Frizz Shampoo Review

Revlon_Professional_be_FABULOUS_trade__Texture_Care_Smooth_Hair_C_R_E_A_M__Anti_Frizz_Shampoo_250ml_1517919769_main

Pros:

Makes my hair frizz free – as promised.

Cons:

No extra shine or hydration.

More:

I feel lucky because even though this winter has made my hair dry as can be, and looking pretty uninspiring – I have managed to invest in some pretty great products – which have greatly improved the shape of my hair. This shampoo is definitely my nr 1 best investment this winter. Frizzy hair is a great source for annoyment for me – it makes me feel like I‘m a kid again, trying to pretend I‘m grown-up and put together – but with hair that just screams “no you are not cause you certainly can‘t control me” (anyone else having this intimate relationship with their hair?). And wearing a hat at all times when outside for past 3 months certainly brings in a lot of frizzy hair moments.

When I started using this shampoo I didn‘t give it all the appreciation it deserved – it wasn‘t until I switched to another shampoo and realised that my frizz came back bit time – that I truly feel in love. This shampoo makes my hair frizz free for at least 3-4 days after use (I was my hair every 5th day roughly) and gives it great volume.

Minuses: no extra shine, no extra hydration really. I get that from my mask, but still.

Keune Vital Nutrition Mask Review

keune-vital-nutrition-mask-500ml-vivadream_530x

Pros:

Provides plenty of hydration.

Cons:

High price per use.

More:

I had never heard of Keune (even though the brand is old, starting as a family business in 1922). But on my search for anything that makes my hair soft during these cold months I‘m not picky and don‘t like to go for safecards. So I was really curious trying this new (to me) brand.

The price is pretty steep so I had high expectations. Those who followed me for a while know that my loyalty is with Kiehls Olive Fruit Repairative Hair Pak, and I‘m reluctant towards new hair masks. But since I felt that even the Kiehls mask let me down a bit this cold winter I was ready to try something new..and this mask was very much worth it. One of the first signs of a good mask, is that your hair untangles as soon as you apply it – this mask does that. Secondly, it it makes my hair shiny and my split ends feel and look..less split, which is greatly appreciated. The minus: you need a lot per use as the mask is pretty heavy in consistency (like whipped butter) which makes the price per use pretty high. I will continue using this mask and if the package lasts longer then my Kiehls favourite I might just as well replace it.

L:A Bruket Cottonseed Eye Balm Review

613RpBfhKFL._SL1474_ (1)

Pros:

Makes the area under my eyes very hydrated.

Cons:

The price.

More:

Those who followed me for a while know that I‘m a consistent fan of Swedish Lilla Bruket – the brand who may, or absolutely may be responsible for the hype  of expensive hand soaps (Aesop only followed..). I like that this small Swedish one woman business has bloomed and is stocked in many cool life-style shops nowadays, make my Swedish heart proud. Using things from Lilla Bruket takes me back to the sea, felling the nature and having that little moment for myself when I pamper myself and take care of my skin (I use their lavender body oil religiously before going to bed to calm my nerves).

So what did I think of this eye cream? I like that it really makes the area around my eyes very soft – making it easy to apply make-up straight after use. I also like the pump bottle (very hygienic) and that you need very little per use. I never used anything with cottonseed before, but know it has moisturizing properties I was curious and not left disappointed. I like the unexpected ways ingredients are used such as broccoli (facial serum) and cilantro (scented candles) and am trying to keep myself from making new purchases. What is negative then? The price, it‘s a bit crazy.

REVLON PROFESSIONAL BE FABULOUS ANTI AGE SERUM REVIEW

REPR0060H_1_L

Pros:

Easy to apply due to the pipette.

Cons:

Doesn‘t result in that much extra shine (which was promised…)

More:

This serum fights the visible signs of ageing – what precisely that is I‘m not sure – I don‘t think it can fight grey hair (only a great colourist can do that). I got this one as a desperate effort to save my hair from turning all grey – I don‘t know if it did that – but it made my hair softer and most importantly – it made my scalp less itchy. Usually after washing my hair, my scalp gets really itchy the next day – which usually wears off. Sometimes I could wake up from my itchy scalp in the middle of the night (and get pretty annoyed). But after I started massage in this serum that was all gone.

This serum is a luxury add on to my already excessive hair routine (shampoo/conditioner(hair mask/leave-in conditioner/hair oil). The price is reasonable so it feels like a nice additional luxury, but if you are not suffering from an itchy scalp or your hair is not screaming for more shine or moisture, then its a products you can live without.

Orofluido Amazonia Repairing Balm Review

orofluido-amazonia-repairing-balm-100-ml

Pros:

Smells delicious.

Cons:

No long lasting effect, has to be re-applied daily.

More:

This is a leave-in balm, which suites my dry, fluffy and damaged (from colouring it blond against all rules of nature) split ends. The texture of the balm is light, and gets absorbed fast. The balm smells very good – even my colleagues noticed. It makes my hair look more shiny and healthy – which is truly appreciated. My frizzy hair becomes easy to control and looks “pulled together” throughout the day. The negative is that I have to apply this balm daily and it has no long-lasting effect.

Revlon Professional Style Masters Double or Nothing Reset Volumizer & refreshing dry shampoo Dry Shampoo Review

revlon-style-masters-double-or-nothing-reset-150ml

Pros:

My hair doesn‘t look greasy the next day after use.

Cons:

The bottle is pretty small considering the price.

More:

I‘ve had so many hormonal problems (both mental and physical hehe…) for many years. One of my hormonal issues is that my hair is ALWAYS fat and people always say don‘t wash it, because if you don‘t do it the fat will disappear – which is a big myth. I‘ve walked around looking like I poured a litre of oil in my hair for many years now, and have of course tried several different remedies. I‘ve tested several dry shampoos, which work for a dry max, and the next day my hair is back to its original oily state.

The big plus of this dry shampoo is that the spray consists of many small particles, which makes it less visible and more evenly divided into my hair upon spraying. You can use it both on dark and blond hair, because of the tiny particles so you can‘t see the shampoo in your hair. The next day my hair feels natural and not fat at all, and I don‘t have to rush to wash it. Another big plus is the smell – it remind me of a perfume a distant relative used to use, which makes me nostalgic – but I also love that it smells so good. The only minus is that the package is pretty small (though that also could be a plus if you want to travel with it).
