d6aa3d3610ac68e64741c200ad519a0b

Happy new year lovelies, we have made a small list of what we loved and worshipped this year:

The facial oil of this year that brought our face out of the winter darkness..

This is where we got out grapefruit fix from in 2016…

The splurge of the year – which was well worth it..

This body oil made our bathroom feel like a warm coconut beach vacation all year long

The lavender oil that puts us to bed like babies was a favourite during this sleep deprived year.

This serum made our year a biiiiit prettier

The budget product of the year was … look here.

The hair brush which became our favourite hair thing in 2016..

…but this one also did wonders to our hair.

And WHAT WE DID NOT LIKE (wasted our money on):

The powder from hell…

The face mask which did nothing of what it promised (see the full list of face masks we won‘t repurchase here).

The ecological lemongrass disappointment of 2016 goes to this shea body butter

This rose lip balm made us (and our wallet) very very sad.

The scrubb which robbed us and made no difference to out skin!

The Kiehl‘s disappointment of the year was this one.

The foundation that made us look beyond unnatural and was just not worth a penny of our hard earned salary.

Thank you for a great 2016 and we are looking forward to guide you through the beauty jungle for another marvellous year!

HH SIMONSEN STYLING OIL REVIEW

hair-products-hh-simonsen-500x500px-styling-oil-495x400

Pros:

Smells delicious.

Cons:

Makes my hair oily if I just use a tiny tiny bit too much – and I have very thick hair – this shouldn‘t happen.

More:

This oil smells completely delicious – like you just got out of a hair salon and got showered with flowers (synthetic flowers but still). It‘s easy to apply evenly in hair and gets absorbed quickly – what I don‘t like about it is that it can really make my hair super oily even if I apply a tiny tiny amount, plus even though it has an instant effect of making my hair very soft (in a nice glamorous way ) straight away – this effect wears off pretty quickly (a day to a half).

Alterna Caviar INTENSE OIL CRÈME SHAMPOO and Deep Conditioner Review

1

Pros:

I can go a week without washing my hair when using this duo.

Cons:

I still need to use my oils to make my hair soft.

More:

I have mixed feeling about this duo – being a huge fan of expensive but “oh soo effective” Alterna I had huge expectations. First and foremost this shampoo and conditioner smell great, they are a bit hard to wash out and lather well. What about the result? Well when using these two I can go for 1 week without washing my hair and it still looks great on the last days. It‘s not very easy to detangle and I don‘t feel that extra moisture which is promised – leaving me a bit disappointed.

Review of Orofluido Asia Zen Control Elixir

Pros:

Makes my hair shinier and frizz-free.

Cons:

Only lasts for one evening.

More:

I have have waited for a new line from Orofluido ever since falling in love with this oil. This elixir is supposed to help frizzy hair, providing an anti-humidity shield and increase shine. First and foremost this elixir is pretty oily, so I never dared using too much of it, instead preferring to apply it in dirty hair for a quick fix-up. So maybe my review will differ from those using it on an every-day basis.

Using the elixir I could really see how my hair became more shiny, frizz-free and got a nicer, more polished look, without any extra softness though. Also, I like the heavy smell of perfume of this elixir. The minuses: you need much per use (though I do have big craxy hair), effect lasts for only a day and does not make my hair more soft.
