Redken | Clear Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner

Monday, 29 September 2014

Are there any other girls out there who hate washing their hair? I find the whole process very laborious which is why I probably have the most basic hair care regime out there; shampoo, conditioner and maybe if I'm feeling fancy a hair oil or serum. Job done. I am also incredibly fussy when it comes to shampoo and conditioners as I despise anything that leaves any trace of residue in my hair. I have always stuck to my favourite shampoo Tresemme Deep Cleanse which is a great affordable clarifying shampoo and leaves my hair feeling really clean and fresh.

Recently I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something new with the Redken Clear Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. The Clear Moisture range is aimed at normal to dry hair types which has an ultra-light Micro Moisture Complex to help restore, rebalance, and retain optimum moisture without adding weight to the hair. I must admit the 25% off on FeelUnique also helped my decision to try something new!

First up in the duo is the Shampoo which I have been using for a few weeks now and I can safely say this has replaced my good old Tresemme! The creamy texture lathers up quickly and with only a small amount covers my entire head (and I have VERY long hair!). I typically only wash my hair 2-3 times a week and this shampoo has done a great job at my making my hair feel really clean, lightweight and super shiny. The apricot oil present gives this shampoo a moisturising effect without being really heavy on my hair. For me this is the perfect combination of clarifying and moisturising in one shampoo!

Lastly is the Conditioner which I have also loved using. The first time I used this in the shower the texture didn't make my hair feel particularly soft but once I had actually dried my hair I was pleasantly surprised. It gave the ends and length of my hair a glossy shine and felt nourished and soft.
Overall, my first Redken experience has been a great success and I can safely say that I haven't used anything else on my hair since! The Clear Moisture range delivered everything that I wanted it to and I have been really happy with the results. Not to mention the scent of both these products is delicious and makes me feel like I've been to the salon! The Tresemme Deep Cleanse I used previously just doesn't give enough moisture back to my hair whereas this does both. This is a great everyday shampoo for me and I will definitely be repurchasing this when I run out.
FeelUnique is a great place to get your hands on Redken products as they are always doing 25% off sales and are cheaper than the high street and salons.

Makeup Revolution Do Skin Care

Monday, 22 September 2014

Makeup Revolution recently added skincare to their never ending product list. Is there anything this brand won't try their hand at? The two new products they have launched are the Attack Anti Bacterial Face Wash and the Defence Anti Bacterial Serum and Primer. I was very kindly sent the products to try out for myself.

Makeup Revolution have always impressed me with the way they package their products and their skincare range is no exception. The white and gold packaging has a sort of luxe feel to it and looks lovely displayed in my bathroom.

The dual pump design combines a cleanser and toner into one making your skin care routine super simple. The foaming formula helps to combat excess oil and ultimately reduce breakouts and blemishes. My skin does feel really clean after using this but I did find that it dried my skin out as I have more of a dry skin type as opposed to oily. For those of you who do suffer from dry skin I would recommend giving this one a try!

I have really been loving this serum and primer in one! The infused formula is packed with vitamins A, B, B5 and E to help protect your skin from breakouts and act as a base. It has a thick and creamy texture and feels like a moisturiser which absorbs nicely into the skin leaving me with a smooth base to apply my makeup. I like the fact that it isn't your typical silicone based primer as they sometimes cling to dry patches on my skin. For just £10, this is a really great product and would definitely recommend this out of the two products and I think it would really well work for most skin types.
Once again Makeup Revolution deliver on price and quality. I'd love to see more products in their skincare line in the future.

MAC | Strobe Cream

Thursday, 4 September 2014

A glowing, dewy and fresh complexion is something I strive for whenever I apply my makeup, especially when my skin is particularly dry. One product that has been helping me achieve this in the last month or so is MAC’S Strobe Cream (£24.50) link

This super-powered moisturiser boosts and brightens tired, dull and flat looking skin with its added antioxidants, vitamins and green tea. Straight from the tube, this cream looks like it could turn you into a Twilight character but pink and purple iridescence of this cream is so flattering and when blended out. It gives your skin a beautiful sheen without any chunks of shimmer.

I love to use this cream in a number of ways; Before foundation gives me an all over dewy complexion, mixed in with my foundation gives me the same effect but with a more tinted moisturiser finish and coverage, and finally on the high points of my face before or after foundation to add a natural glow to specific areas.

MAC’s Strobe cream has become a staple in my makeup routine as I hardly ever wear foundation without using this in one way or another. Now that summer is over and my skin inevitably becomes even drier, I can tell this will be a product I won’t want to put down. To all my dry skin girls I urge you to try this!
