Bumble and bumble¬†Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil $40

  • This lightweight oil features a luxurious blend of six oils and two extracts that soften, tame flyaways, and add shine‚ÄĒimmediately and over time. After applying to wet hair, blow dry to get hair that looks and feels healthy, smooth, silky, and conditioned. It detangles hair, helps strengthen against breakage, and dramatically reduces frizz. Featuring UVA/UVB filters and heat styling protection, the clear-as-day formula can be used on all types and colors of hair.

I would use this oil after the shower because I normally let my hair air dry.  This product made my hair SUPER soft when it finally dried, and it was NOT frizzy at all.

Would I Repurchase?!

YAY

But I have another sample size bottle at home so I wont be purchasing more for now.

Skinfix Ultra Rich Body Butter $14.99

  • Chronic dry skin is a result of a depleted lipid barrier combined with overall dehydration. For most, simple lotions do not offer enough relief and do not contain enough emollient ingredients to heal the skin barrier. Skinfix introduces Ultra Rich Body Butter for dry, parched skin – the ultimate super quencher for skin that’s extremely dry, flaking and rough. This richly textured formula melts into skin to instantly relieve tightness and flaking, while it deeply penetrates to lock in essential moisture that leaves skin soft, supple and healthy all day. Natural sheaf butter, coconut and sunflower oil soothe and nourish depleted skin while antioxidants soothe and protect. Can be used daily all over the body for maximum comfort. For best results, use with Skinfix Cleansing Oil Wash. The ultimate skin fix.
    • Dermatologist recommended
    • Made with natural ingredients
    • Natural sheaf butter, coconut and sunflower oils
    • Free of fragrance, soy, gluten, parabens and phthalates
    • Ultra rich and quick absorbing
    • Skin-quenching formula
    • Cruelty free

This lotion honest to god was one of the best body creams I have ever used.  I never felt or used a formula like this one.  The one person who used it more than me was my boyfriend, and he actually finished this one ounce container!!!

Lush’s Retread¬†Conditioner $31.95

  • Retread is our super-smoothing conditioning cream that gives sad hair its shine and bounce back. Use it when your hair is feeling absolutely wrecked. This rich conditioner makes your hair look better, but more importantly, it moisturizes and feeds your hair the nutrients it needs. We use a blend of softening and hydrating ingredients, including seaweed, lanolin, fresh canteloupe and protein-rich yoghurt and soya milk to strengthen locks. Then we blend in olive, jojoba and avocado oils to give a truly deep condition. Together all these ingredients add up to a nutritious heavy weight conditioner. Put a plentiful helping on your hair and let it go to work.

I got this sample size from Lush when I was in there sniffing on their bath bombs (Which I NEVER tried because I dont have a bath, meh!)  I was not impressed.  It did nothing for my hair, and Im pretty sure I used the whole sample in one sitting.  It kind of made my hair feel dirtier than it probably was, and let me tell you SUCH  a pain to BRUSH through!

Would I Repurchase?

NAY

(Sorry my LUSH lovers out there!)

Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer $7.99

  • Keep your grooming routine fast and simple with Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer. Formulated with pure aloe, this continuous spray lotion moisturizes deeply and absorbs in seconds, leaving your skin feeling instantly soft–not sticky or greasy–so you can put your clothes right on. To apply, simply hold the can four inches from your skin and spray up one leg and arm, switch hands and spray down the other side and finish by quickly rubbing in.

I got this product in my Influenster Sunshine VoxBox MONTHS AGO, and I am finally finished using it.  THANKS SO MUCH INFLUENSTER FOR SENDING THIS PRODUCT!  This spray has been my life saver with my sun burn.  After I get out of the shower it was so easy to just spray on right after, and reach all the places I couldnt get with regular lotion like my back.  It even came in handy when my sun burn finally started to peel.

Would I Repurchase?

NAY

Dont get me wrong I really liked this product, and it really came in handy, but there are so many other lotions out there.  Plus Ive been trying to repurchase this for a while now, and I havent found in stores, so weird!

MARC ANTHONY Hydrating Coconut Oil & Shea Butter Conditioner $7.99

  • Marc Anthony Hydrating Coconut Oil & Shea Butter Conditioner, extra hydrating formula instantly smoothes frizz and repairs split ends and breakage while creating soft, luxurious, supple hair. Coconut Oil and Shea Butter restore, protect and revive shine. Biotin deeply penetrates to fortify, nourish and supercharge healthier, faster growth. Hair is left healthy and frizz free. Color safe.

I would use this in place of my usual conditioner routine right after shampooing. I defintely felt a difference in my hair right after use. As soon as I would brush it I felt immediate soft hair which is rare with my hair because it’s dry and fried. I think because it’s sulfate free it made it even better because I get really dry scalp.

The results are hydrated, soft and manageable hair. ¬†Keravis protein is clinically proven to strengthen hair, heat protectant, free of parabens, phosphates, mineral oils, not tested on animals.

The constancy of this hair mask was thick, and creamy + it smelt really really good.  I would use this about once a week, and I seen such a difference in my hair.  Usually my hair is dry but this made my hair so soft.  I have thick hair too so it took a lot of this sample bottle to get my whole head.  I got three really good tries out of this which isnt bad at all.

Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Pencil $18 

  • The fine tip on this sleek European-designed mechanical pencil has a creamy consistency that glides into place and can also be lightly smudged for a more natural look (use the brush/comb attachment on Chella’s razor, sold separately, to achieve this effect).

This eyebrow pencil was my beginner first ever used eye brow pencil. ¬†One of my good friends gave it to me from her Birchbox because she really doesn’t use eyebrow pencils. ¬†Once I used it I was in love with filling in my eyebrows. ¬†Lucky for me even though I ran out I once again received it in my BoxyCharm for one of the previous months that just passed.

Would I Repurchase?

NAY

I have come a long way with eyebrow products I am now currently using Benefits Gimme Brow, and Ka-Brow!  Great as a beginner but just not for me anymore.

  1. Hey, I’ve been using the Body Shop Tea Tree series since my teens. You didn’t really mention how you use it, so I don’t know, if you are doing it, but… do not miss out the tonic. The face wash cleanses everything from the face, yet it also cleans all the good things, but the tonic helps to restore them.

    I use wash, tonic and scrub (up to two times a week) and have tried the mattifying lotion and some other bits, but wasn’t a fan. And there is a new bottle style for the series which I looooove!

    Great review, so many other lovely and inspiring things! xx

    1. Im sorry I should of put how I used it!! I got the whole starter kit so I have the facial wash, toner, and skin clearing cream. I also purchased the pore minimizer and night time blemish cream. I mostly use the wash then the toner after and to finish off the night blemish cream. I seen the new bottle/look today I wasn’t sure if it was the same stuff the bottle looks so much smaller then the usual. Thanks so much for reading! XO

    1. After I used the toner I would put on there night blemish cream and it took away my dark spots within a few weeks. It really worked wonders. The spray moisturizer was good when your on the go and don’t have time to lather yourself in lotion. It’s not as creamy as lotion, not as thick and not oily so I really liked it because sometime normal moisturizers can be a little to much especially when your in a rush. Xo
