Klorane Shampoo with Nettle

Klorane Shampoo with Nettle

I'm doing a hair related review after so long! I'm on a mission to get my hair back to the glory days. It was bouncy, thick and I needed to shampoo just once or twice a week. I want that back! I first mentioned this product in last month's favourites, time to do a full review. I've always had dry hair but I started developing an oily scalp a while back. That resulted in me shampooing more and it was a terrible cycle to break. I also have fine hair so any amount of…Read more
October 2014 Favourites

October 2014 Favourites

Time for the monthly favourites. I've had such a crazy Monday, I just want to talk about makeup! A  bunch of things I've been using for the last 2-3 months and some are more recent favourites. So here goes!   01. Lorac Pro Palette :: So I finally got this a few months back and it's pretty much replaced my UD Naked palette. I love the colours! I've used it for subtle everyday looks, night outs with smokey eyes and shimmery looks. Also used it on Diwali and I have a few weddings…Read more
Korres Holiday in Greece Kit

Korres Holiday in Greece Kit

A while back I purchased this travel size set and I've used quite a few times in the past year. Korres is a Greek Pharmacy brand and I do like their skincare and bath products though I haven't tried a lot before. This set was also a good opportunity to try a bunch of things. Korres Holiday in Greece Kit comes with a shampoo, 2 showergels, 1 body butter and 1 body milk. I do wish there was a conditioner instead of 2 shower gels though. I'm going to do mini reviews of…Read more
Schwarzkopf Bonacure Volume Boost Shampoo

Schwarzkopf Bonacure Volume Boost Shampoo

I really liked the last Kerastase shampoo I tried but I wanted something cheaper. I scoured the web till I found this. I honestly don't know how to pronounce this without butchering it but it's the Schwarzkopf Bonacure Volume Boost Shampoo. It's a  transparent gel shampoo, very different consistency than most. It lathers well and is very mild. It doesn't dry out my hair a lot and even in winters works well for me. It has a light floral scent which is very nice and pleasant. I don't notice a significant "boost" in volume…Read more
Brocato Curlinterrupted Smoothing and Hydrating Shampoo and Treatment

Brocato Curlinterrupted Smoothing and Hydrating Shampoo and Treatment

This is a shampoo and conditioner duo I received in a Vellvette box a while back. They are perfect for travel and I used them 2 months ago. I had never heard of the brand Brocato. It's a US based company which makes organic products. So most ingredients are natural oils and the like. Curlinterrupted is their range for hydrating dry and frizzy hair. Perfect match for my hair type! The Smoothing and Hydrating Shampoo has a really nice scent. It's a bit floral but mild and pleasant. This lathers well considering there…Read more
Kerastase Resistance Bain Volumactive Shampoo

Kerastase Resistance Bain Volumactive Shampoo

I used this shampoo a few months back, I don't have it anymore but I really liked it a lot! It's the Kerastase Resistance Bain Volumactive Shampoo. I'd never really tried anything from their range before. I wanted a mild volumizing shampoo and went for this.  I have dry hair so I didn't want a shampoo that would dry it out too much but still give me volume. This worked really well on both counts. My hair always felt lighter and didn't weigh down as easily which helped keep more volume longer. I also…Read more

Herbal Essences Drama Clean Refreshing Shampoo

Herbal Essences Drama Clean Refreshing Shampoo

This isn't a happy review. When I bought this shampoo I desperately looked for a shampoo with a green apple/ citrus scent. I walked in Dorabjee's and this the first one I spotted, smelt it and I was sold. This is a probably a good lesson and how to not buy a product. I lot of the problems that I had with this I didn't fully realise until I stopped using it and suddenly they were all gone. So bear with me, this might be a bit too rambly. The Herbal Essences Drama…Read more
