Kerastase Designer Range – The Exception

Kerastase Designer The ExceptionIt’s no secret that I’m a fan of luxury hair brand Kerastase. My experience with their products has been limited to shampoo and conditioners mostly. I was delighted to try their new designer range. I have been testing three of their styling products, and rather enjoying the experience. Is there really something exceptional about the products?

Getting ready for the Beach – Kerastase Soleil Range

kerssun

I seems like only yesterday that I was dreaming of a white Christmas and now hear I am dreaming of a week in the sun. Holiday beauty packing is probably my favourite kind of packing. I put a lot of thought into what I bring with me. Top of my list is always hair care. The combination of heat, humidity, chlorine and sea salt has the potential to ruin my locks. My usual hair care products will Continue Reading

My Hair Saviour – Olive Oil & Egg Hair Mask

My has been going through a bit of a dry spell lately. I blame hormones. Of course, I blame those on just about everything :) As you can gather I spend a lot of money on hair care products but I did wonder if I could revert to my old ways and use something from my kitchen to improve the quality of my hair.

I settled on this recipe and have been delighted with the results.

OLIVE OIL AND EGG HAIR MASK:

  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 eggs

Apply to dry hair. Leave on hair for at least 15 minutes (I waited 30 minutes). Then wash you hair as normal.

I tried this three times over the past week and my hair feels soft, shiny and manageable. It’s not greasy or dry. It’s just right. It’s almost like the mask normalised my hair.

Definitely worth a try!

Any home remedies to share??

May’s Lust List

As you may already know I’m mad about notebooks and lists. My longest list by far is my make-up wish list. No surprise there but there are usually a handful of products I’m on the urge of buying but am reasoning with myself for whatever reason. Here are a few I am lusting after, and am considering buying. Let me know what you think of these – if you think they’re worth it or not.

Let’s get started!

Sleep-In Rollers I saw these in the window of my local Nail & Beauty Bar the other day and was intrigued. I googled them as soon as I got home and I discovered that they are huge amongst the desperate scousewives community – I’m afraid I’m out of the loop on this one as I have never seen it. I was very interested in waking up with big hair though. They cost €21 for 20, apparently that’s plenty for even thick hair. Not an issue for me – I’ll probably have some left over. I’m off to check YouTube for videos on how to put them in. Majorly sexy obviously.

 

Dior Diorskin Shimmer Star Amber Diamond Powder

This has been on my list since last November. I had evey intention of buying it at Sephora in Chicago but the sales assistant talked me into Too Faced Pink Leopard Highlighting bronzer instead. I love highlighters but I have quite a few. I’m not sure if this is going to stand out enough to warrant the purchase. It’s €40.25 on Debenhams website with free delivery to Ireland at the moment. It’s usually €44.73. I’m finding it hard to resist. Do I need it?

 

 

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF15

This one is top of my foundation wish list. I filled in the questionnaire on Chanels website to see which foundation was most suited to my skin type and this one was recommended. I have been meaning to try it out anyway so I’m delighted it suits my skin – medium coverage for combination oily skin in need of a radiance boost. That’s me. Have you tried it?

 

 

The Balm Nude Tude Palette

I was talking about buying this on Twitter and Facebook last week. I actually ordered but found out the following day that my order didn’t go through. I held off on ordering again, I’m not too sure why. I suppose it feels like a complete over-indulgence to buy something you have so much of – neutral shadows! Let’s face it, I need this like a hole in the head. Yet, I haven’t forgotten about it. It’s the matte shades that really appeal to me. The shades seem quite unique when I checked out the swatches too. Of course I may be just justifying myself :) €33.8o from Feel Unique.com.

What should I splurge on? What’s on your Lust List?
