Garnier moose review

This is one of my favourite products for when I fancy a little curl in my hair. Naturally I have dead straight hair and I long to have that brilliant bounce that curly hair leaves. You simply put a squirt of this moose on your hands, rub is together and scrunch it into your towel dried hair. Now here’s the best part; you can either leave it slightly scrunched and allow it to try naturally (I usually put a loose hairband in to allow it to set rather than just dropping out because my hair is so straight), or you can blow dry it with a diffuser, this leaves your hair with a natural curl. This product leaves your hair smelling lovely and fresh.

However, one criticism that I would like to point out is that it sometimes leaves your hair a little hard and rock like, so I simply run a brush through it to soften it back up, however, this allowed the volume to go down a little. Overall, I would recommend this product and feel free to comment if you know of any other tips for this ‘hard hair’ problem. Thanks!


Hair Refresher Review

This wonderful little thing is from Avon where it costs under £5. It comes in all different flavours and the one that I chose is called ‘cherry blossom’ because lets face it, who wouldn’t want their hair to smell like cherry blossoms. I would highly recommend this product as it smells great and is really simple to use without leaving your hair greasy. The way in which I apply it is sometimes straight to the hair, I tend to avoid the roots as I tend to get greasy hair if I use products on it, however, more recently I have started to spray it directly onto my hair brush, then brush my hair, this is a great way to keep the smell in your hair for longer. Also, this product lasts forever! This is the second bottle that I have ever had and I only use it once a week, usually on the second day after a hair wash.

Daily Clean

This is amazing! Firstly, as a student I rarely buy from the No7 beauty range as they are rather expensive, however I got a voucher for £5 off from boots and as this only cost a total of £8, I managed to pick it up for £3 and I’ll definitely buy it again. I use this as a moisturiser whenever my face is feeling a little rough, I apply it every night and every time before and after I wear make-up. You simply put it on your fingers and apply to the face, it can go over eyes to remove eye make-up, then you get a cotton pad and wipe it off effortlessly. It leaves you face feeling soft to the touch and fresh. I would definitely recommend this and at only £8 it’s a bargain!

This is the Rimmel London match perfection foundation witch I bought from Superdrug about two months ago. As I had reasonably tanned skin from the good weather in England (Hurrah!) I choose to go for the soft beige colouring.

What I like about this foundation is that it has an APF of 18, which means that when you go out in the sun you don’t have to put sun cream on your face (unless you’re somewhere really hot!). When I apply it I put a small bit on my hand and use a soft sponge to apply it all over my face. Firstly I was shocked about how orange it came out! For such a well known brand and a ‘match perfection’ which means that it should match your skin colourings, my face had turned a tanned shade of orange, which is not attractive. As you can see from the picture I haven’t used much of it since! However, because it is a brand name and cost me quite a bit (I can’t remember exactly), I tried it again one night when I was going out and I must say it worked much better. I think that this matches your skin tone then slightly darkens it to make you look more tanned, which on a night out is a good look, but not just for a day out.

Overall, I would only recommend this if you prefer a foundation that is slightly darker than your own skin tone.
