Maui Moisture Revive & Hydrate Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner

So from my last post (if you've read it) you can see that I suffer with incredibly dry and damaged hair meaning I'm always on the look out for products to help rid my horrors.

One day walking through Boots on a promotional plinth these lovely hair products by Maui caught my eye. Admittedly these bottles are very hard to miss, they look so different There are a few different types of shampoo's and conditioner's ranging to help combat a number of issues:

  • Nourish and moisture Aloe vera juice, cocount water, cocont milk, Guava oil,mango butter
  • Moisture revive and hydrate containing Aloe Vera, coconunt water, shea butter, coconut oil and macadamia oil 
  • Strength and anti breakage contaning: Aloe Vera water, coconut water,Agave, Hibiscus oil, pineapple extract
  • Thicken and restore containing: Aloe Vera Juice, Coconut water, bamboo fibres, caster oil,Neem oil 

I've gone for the Moisture and hydrate which after just one use has worked wonders!

Whats great about this brand is that everything in their products are free of silicones, artificial colours and mineral oils, oh and vegan friendly - yay. 

As mentioned I've only used this product for a week and my hair definitely feels less dry also ends up smelling great after every use. This is one to try especially if you're someone like me that hasn't been so kind to my own hair. My hair looks less dried out and doesn't look as if its feeling sorry for itself. I feel that it styles a lot easier too. 

The shampoo lathers really well and you feel you're getting a good deep clean .
When it comes to the conditioner it mentions to leave it in for up to 5 minutes, I left it in a tad longer for an extra little treatment...why not!? 

I picked it up at boots on a little offer so keep those eyes peeled otherwise it usually costs around £8.99 (A little steep, I know - but worth it for me)

Much love for the read x

Coconut Oil: Superdrug

Dry skin? Dry hair? On a budget? me too. I've come to be a huge Superdrug fan recently just due to some of their modern and affordable products.
My hair is hughlighted every 2/3 months or so and it doesnt do my hair any good. I've also always struggled with the 'perfect' soft locks, I'm just not that lucky. Thats where this lovely tub of coconut oil comes in. As you know hair oils are all the rage but for me its important that it's as natural and affordable as possible.

After melting a palm size amount I applied it to my dry hair and left it to soak in for a good 3 hours (bear in mind its up to you how long you want to leave it on for) I was a little worried that after washing it out I'd be left with that horrid greasy feeling but I didn't! Instead my hair felt less dry, don't get me wrong my hair wasn't no Kim Kardashian smooth (cause that's a million people running round after her lol) but it was an improvement. I cant recommend spending a few pennies well £2.49 for such a versatile product. Don't go spending over a tenner for something similar with the same ingredients you'll just get the same great results.

If you have dry skin apply a little of the oil to that too, I often have dry knees and this works wonders.

Yes, this was brief but boy it works!

Dont forget to share your stories if you've tried it too!

Holika Holika Golden Monkey 3 Step Kit Review

Hello again readers!

This time it's a review on something a little different  a 3 step lip treatment that claims to get rid of those horrid dry lips pretty much in an instant...well after 1,2,3 

As you can see the packaging is rather sweet and admittedly was a buying factor for me but I don't think you'd blame me! The sections are easy to tear too, I'm usually really clumsy when it comes to fiddly things like that.

So how does it work?

Step 1 - This pad gently exfoliates the lips and contain botanical ingredients to help those with delicate skin. In basic terms its like a mini face wipe with exfoliating bits in to help get rid of any dead skin...not the most creative way to describe it but it's exactly how it is :)

Step 2 - The hydrating mask (Doesn't taste yummy lol) contains  hyaluronic acid and hydrolyzed collagen to help plump those tired lips. As advised I left it on for 15 minutes so don't do this whilst having a conversation!

Step 3 - The lip oil, containing royal jelly and honey is to help moisturise and heal. To be fair I got a couple of uses from the packet, so great way to save some of those pennies. It's constancy is jelly like and felt really nice on the lips, didn't taste too bad either.  

I think this is a fun treatment to do, why not get the girls over for a pamper night in? not only was it fun it didn't do a bad job with my lips. They definitely felt much smoother. I wouldn't say they felt plumped but all in all not a terrible experience. I love the fun side to the brand and was overall pleased, a great way to get smoother lips in 3 steps having all you need ready to go. If you're someone that needs a decent prep before matte lipstick application and have some time to spare I would recommend the kit, it makes it last longer and saves you from the unsightly cracked lips!  

Where to buy in the UK: Beauty Bay for £3.50

Yes To Review

Happy Friday, the weekend is here and I'm finally blogging after a short while - double yay!

Apart from the bottles being incredibly photogenic the products have been a wonder to use.

I'll start with the Yes to Grapefruit Scrub which you may be wondering if it holds any similarities with the award winning St Ives scrub, so here's me saying - yes and no. It works just as well however it is much more gentle on the skin and no way does this affect the outcome it has. My skin felt clean and refreshed after the first use which did result in my skin overall appearing more brighter (although I had to use it often and consistently)

Like most scrubs it helps to clear away dead skin cells that can make your skin appear dull but with the help of natural ingredients. It contains lemon balm to help repair your skin and the grapefruit to help clean and nourish it.

My skin has recently become very sensitive and using scrubs have been playing havoc with my face, leaving it really dry. Thankfully I have been able to rely on the Yes to scrub to care for my skin - it's nice to find something to trust! The smell is gorgeous too - that zesty scent that reminds me of a good old holiday!


Ok so as crazy as this sounds I love tomatoes so anything with tomatoes in are already a seller to me!
The Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask is a favourite. For me its an award winning combination because of the fabulous range of ingredients. It's charcoal and salicylic acid along with watermelon and pumpkin feel so lush on the skin (yes I said lush)
Myself and my fiancĂ© (wink face) both have enjoyed using it. I just love the feeling of my skin after washing it away - it feels so smooth. It also leaves my skin very matte (I have quite oily skin) so that alone is a plus. Although I still get spots whist using the mask (its inevitable) my spots don't appear as red after using it - it's doing something right.
For me the mask feels expensive and feels like a high end product but you can pick it up at boots for £6.99 - I have spent a lot more on something that doesn't even match what this mask does. If you fancy a pampering day in I'd suggest this stuff! Its thick and creamy with pretty nice results.
I really hope you enjoy this read!!

Make Up Revolution - Golden Sugar Review

I can't live without blush and if I did i'd look like a ghost! Those of you who haven't yet tried Make Up Revolution...please do, this palette is a good place to start! The brand it's self is incredibly affordable and yet some of the best quality product I have ever used. This time around I'm reviewing the Golden Sugar Blush palette and I honestly fell in love with it before even using it. 

If you are looking for a golden goddess look, search no more! 

It's gorgeous to look at, the colours in this palette are immensely lush! The 6 shades are each incredibly pigmented which you don't often find in bargain makeup - the quality is that of something a lot more pricey. 

What I really love about this palette is the combination of bronzer, highlighter and blush - great for those that are always on the move as its' all in one and ready to go or if you are looking for a diverse set of shades this is it! 

Shade breakdown: (See below for HD pictures)
1 - A nice silky highlight, great for brightening up the cheeks for a dewy glow.
2 - Shimmery sugary pink which creates a nice touch of colour on the cheek, a little goes a long way! 
3 - Similar to the second shade but not as shimmery nice for a slightly toned down look 
4- Slightly orange in colour good use as a contour but may not work on paler skin tones, has a nice warm feel to the shade. 
5 - A nice light satin finish great use as a contour or bronzer
6 - Beautiful shimmer to the shade really gives my cheeks a dewy sense of colour 
7 - Has a coppery bronze finish nice as a bronzer has a slight hint of orange to it 
8 - A matte shade good for contouring it's slightly dark for me so no need to use too much but very diverse. 

Overall I am a huge fan of this brand it's affordable so if you are on a budget there is no need to miss out on quality and it's also very current, a easy to use palette with shades that help you create the latest looks.

I hope this post has been helpful and pretty to look at! If you haven't already, don't forget to follow my blog so you don't miss out!

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Scrub Review

Glycolic and Salicylic acid ingredients in skin care have become more and more popular due to their cleansing and renewing properties. I remember starting out using the Alpha H liquid gold and thinking wow, amazing. 

Nip + Fab have a great and vast Glycolic range and I thought I'd give the scrub a try. I do love a good face scrub as my skin can look dull at times. This scrub contains 3% Glycolic and Salicylic acids to help brighten and renew and after using this product for 3 weeks I have noticed that my skin feels that little bit more refined. This products claims to work deep into pores to polish and reduce blemishes. Now, I am a sufferer of blemishes and they are constant. I am forever looking for a product to aid in the reduction of those nasty blemishes that can make me feel so self conscious. 

Using this product has given my skin a new lease of life, my skin feels more brighter and really aids me with the application of my make up as my skin doesn't feel so uneven after using it. What's great is the consistency of the product as it doesn't feel too course on the skin as some scrubs I have previously used really feel as if they are too rough. I would almost say it has the qualities of a at home microdermabrasion treatment.....What's even better is its citrus smell, Yum! I'll let you into a little secret, you can use it on dry elbows and knees for a quick fix! 

I use this twice a week but that can be reduced to just once or up to three times. I wouldn't recommend any more as you can damage your skin and not see any results. 

Let me know what you think!
Talk soon x
