Review: Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Concentrate

Confession time: I’m a terrible beauty blogger. My ability to stick to a skincare routine in the past is almost laughable. While I’m vigilant with cleansing my face and trying to remove my make up, and if I was lucky, a little moisturiser. But after that, much of it had fallen by the wayside. So much so, that when I won the Clarins Double Serum in a competition, I tried it a couple of times, and it sat in my drawer unloved for too long. Enter me working on a product decrease, because NEWSFLASH! Things don’t get used up or work at all if you don’t use them, people! (sarcasm, much?)

Well, clearly I didn’t know what I was missing out on at the time. This little bottle is great!

Mani Monday: OPI Kermit Me To Speak

So, I haven’t painted my nails in AGES (renovating ruins your motivation by having your mani ruined instantly, guys). So I was pretty excited for this little beauty to land on my doorstep. If you weren’t aware, OPI released a line to coincide with the release of the first Muppets movie, and they have done it again this time around for Muppets: Most Wanted, and there are some gorgeous shades!

And today I want to show you the most interesting (in my opinion) of the set: Kermit Me To Speak.

Review: Redken Curvaceous Shampoo and Conditioner

If you’re like me, you are skeptical about particular claims that products give. I’m actually surprised I gave this duo a go, as I usually make a bee line to hydrating and repairing hair products. But, this day I bought these I was at a loss as to what to choose (blame the amount of choice there!), and since I have curly hair, decided to give these a go. I didn’t expect a lot from this to be completely honest. I thought it was either going to be far too heavy for my hair or dry it out.

However, I was more than pleasantly surprised. When I let my hair dry naturally, I found the frizz I’d usually encounter was reduced significantly. This worked best when I combed the conditioner through my hair with a wide tooth comb in the shower, as that led to little to no combing afterwards. During the time I used this. I wore my hair out naturally more than I had before. And if you have curly hair, you know what a feat this actually is.
