WONDER 10: Update

Wednesday, 25 July 2012

Hey lovelys, finally here is the update on how I am getting on with the Osmo 'Wonder 10' Product. I wasn't a 100% sure this product would live up to its claims, which you can read about here.

Well... this product is AMAZING!! I have been using it for about 3 weeks and from the first time I used it, my hair felt soft and silky and had an amazing shine to it! As I mentioned in my previous post, my hair is extremely damaged and dry and nothing has really come to its rescue, apart from this!! I have also noticed that the condition of my hair has improved! I can't say it happened over night, but feel that recently its starting to feel less dry and alot more healthier which is so great as I am trying to grow my hair as I had a recent hair mishap with a different hairdresser than normal and now my hair is so short (and horrible! absolutely hate the length!)

I am singing all this products praises today, honestly its amazing! Its great if your hair is damaged, dry or if you just want 1 product to do everything for your hair! I believe it currently retails for about £11-£13 but I picked it up from my local beauty wholesaler for a lot less.

Have you tried this product yet? Or have you got a similar product you love?

I am super excited to be writing this post! I finally have got my hands on the Wonder 10 leave in treatment by Osmo Effects! This product claims to literally be AMAZING for your hair and I am super excited to try it and hopefully share an amazing review with you all!

I am not one for using lots of products in my hair, I barely remember to use heat protectant and considering my hair is dry and damaged, I should be shot! I am also very much a 'stinge' with my money when it comes to hair products so a product that has 10 effects all in one in right up my street!

'Osmo Wonder 10 is a unique all-in-one Keratin based leave-in hair treatment with 10 wondrous effects. Designed to leave the hair feeling softer, silkier and more manageable with a radiant shine.

10 effects:
- Helps repair dry and damaged hair

- Delivers soft, silky, more manageable results
- Contains colour protection complex
- Creates body and movement
- Incredible detangler
- Aids in the prevention of static
- Conditions both natural and synthetic hair
- Smoothes split ends and controls frizz

This product is making me excited already just typing about it and I cannot wait to try this in my hair! All you need to do is spray it in damp hair, towel dry then style as normal! Easy Peasy!
I purchased this product at my local beauty wholesaler for £5.90 on a VAT Free day but I believe it currently retails for around £11 for 250ml!

Will you purchasing this product?

No7 Cleansing Water: First Impressions

Saturday, 7 July 2012

Popping into Boots the other day, I really wanted to pick up some new skincare bits from No7 as I have heard alot of good things about them and also I had a No7 £5 off Voucher! ;-)

After umming & ahhhing for quite some time (I am hopeless at choosing) I finally picked up the No7 Cleansing Water. I have been wanting to try a Cleansing Water for quite some time and thought this would be a perfect time as I had the voucher and it made it a little more affordable! 

What No7 says:
No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water is enriched with zinc to help control oil for an even complexion. Pump the water onto cotton wool and wipe over the face to cleanse, refresh and balance skin for results that you can see and feel from morning to night.

This is for oily/normal skin and No7 claim that its '1 step to perfectly clean, refreshed and shine free skin.' The smell of this product is so lovely, its really summery and fruity yet light? I applied this to my skin but using the handy pump action using my fingers to work into my skin. It's really light on the skin and feels really refreshing. I then used a clean cotton pad and wiped off the product. After my skin felt so refreshed and clean. The product is really light on the skin so its a great alternative to cleansing creams when the weather gets all hot or even stuffy and you just want a light cleanser! I noticed that my oily t-zone was left shine free aswell! I would probably use this cleanser in the mornings as its really refreshing and light and not in the evenings because as a Makeup Artist I tend to wear quite alot of product on my face and it takes quite a few go's to complete remove all product off my face and I feel something like a scrub would be better for the evening!

Overall, for my first Cleansing Water, I think it is great, especially for the price but a little disappointed in how much you have to use to remove all traces of makeup!

The No7 Cleansing Water 200ml retails for £9 but with a £5 off voucher (they are currently floating around now!) it only comes to £4! Also, If you spend £25 in one go, you get a free gift from No7! You can purchase this online here or instore at Boots.

Sleek Blush Review

Thursday, 5 July 2012

I finally got my hands on some Sleek Blushes, Rose Gold & Flamingo. 

Sleek says:
A highly pigmented blusher to brighten and define cheekbones. The silky-fine formulation provides long lasting blusher which helps to create a subtle but radiant cheek area. 

Apply using a small powder/blusher brush, by swirling the brush over the surface of the blusher. Tap off excess powder and apply onto the apples of the cheeks to emphasise your cheeks and your smile, or just below the cheek bone to create a sculpted look.

These are the first blushes from Sleek that I have purchased and they definitely live up to the hype! They are so pigmented, affordable, long lasting and come in 10 shades! The packaging is really sleek and black too and comes with a handy mirror for when your on the go!

L-R (Rose Gold & Flamingo)

I absolutely love these colours swatched, cant wait to use them in my kit and in my makeup bag! 

Currently £4.30 for 8g of product from Sleek Makeup which you can purchase here

Sleek Eau La La Liners Review

Tuesday, 3 July 2012

Sleek Eau La La Liners have been on the beauty radar for a little while now and I have had my eye on them for a while! I finally picked up 7 of the 20 colours in Superdrug the other day after having a massive makeup spend!

Sleek Eau La La Liners are smudge proof, multi purpose pencils that can be used on the lips, eyes and body and come in 20 amazing colours! I picked up Dragon Fruit, Moulin Rouge, Red Night Sky, White Noise, Canary Yellow, Cobalt Blue & Melba. 

Sleek says:
Highly pigmented with a unique waterproof formulation, Eau La La are the ultimate in liner luxury. Enriched with a soft, creamy formulation, Eau La La are perfect for use on the eyes, lips, brows and body.

L-R (White Noise, Canary Yellow, Red Sky Night, Cobalt Blue & Melba)

Sleek offer alot of Variety with the colours with the Eau La La Liners, with 20 show stopping colours ranging from Blacks & Browns to Bright yellows & Blues! The liners are extremely creamy and madly pigmented as you can see in the swatches above! These are also great to blend and its really hard to describe the consistency of these pencils! They also glide on like a dream and have great staying power! I struggled to get them off my arm with ordinary makeup remover and had to use an oil to remove! I am really looking forward to using these to create some bright looks for the summer!

The only problem I do have with these liners is that you have to be super careful when you open the lids, as when I opened them, the pencil itself came out! I know a few other people have had problems when sharpening them also :(

Overall I think these are great pencils and can't wait to get my hands on some more colours! These are available from Sleek Makeup here for £4 & at Superdrug for £3.99!
