One of my resolutions this year was just to take more care of myself. Nothing drastic: eat well, exercise, moisturize, the usual. Elemental Herbology’s gorgeous Fire & Earth oils is helping me keep the latter up. View Post

Louise Galvin Sacred Locks*

Louise Galvin Sacred Locks*

Louise Galvin is a product which I have always been interested in – they are natural and the all important eco-friendly, but also promise volume and moisture for my processed ends.

First off – these products smell amazing. Not a regular “this is a nice smelling shampoo nice”, but an “Oh my god let me bathe in this forever” kind of a smell. It’s the mandarin which sets the scent apart. Online the brand also sells body lotion and hand and body wash – these are now on my list to try.

Ok, back to the shampoo and conditioners – I love, love, love the packaging – super sleek and easy to use, these perk up my shower room. Both products have pump dispensers which stops wastage and lets me control how much of each I’m using.

The shampoo is slightly thinner than my regular (Kerestase Bain Satin) but 4 pumps and some water and I’m good to go. The conditioner is about 6 pumps as I whack it on from ears to ends.

The results are great – soft hair, more volume and that to-die-for scent. What’s not to love?

Louise Galvin Sacred Locks shampoo £22

Guerlain Kajal Khol

Guerlain Kajal Khol

This eyeliner is literally life changing; ok, not life changing, but it is pretty great!

Guerlain brings these out every year, and yes, they are expensive, but these things last for months and months. The colour payoff is great – a silky, inky black which rims the waterline really well! The crayon format of the liner means that the line is smooth and soft looking, making it super-easy to create a smoky eye.

Not only do I love the product, but the packing is sublime. I buy these year after year, and the ribbon and decorations change, but they are the most glamorous eyeliner around

The eyeliner is priced at $36 and available at Sephora.com

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer*

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer*

The Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is a product which is hailed as a miracle worker throughout magazines and blogs. A look at the box shows its been awarded beauty prizes by Harper’s Bazaar and InStyle – two publications which know what they’re talking about! So I was super excited to try this miracle product.

Unlike a regular conditioning treatment, this goes on before you shampoo, and it is left on for 1/2 hour. To deal with the unavoidable spills a cute little branded shower cap is included in the box.

I do always find this pre-shampoo treatment idea a little bit of a hassle – but made the most of it by applying a face mask at the same time and had a little home-spa-thing going on.

So, after shampooing and conditioning with my regular products (Kerestase shampoo and Frederik Fekkai conditioner) my hair did feel super smooth.

The only negative I would say came when I came to blow dry my hair – it took forever. However, once I did manage to get it dry, my hair was super sleek and looked as if I had straightened it.

What I like about this is, not only does it work in repairing the damage already done, but also helps in the prevention of damage – smooth hair equals no straighteners for me.

Would I buy the Elasticizer once this tub runs out? Yep, I think I would. I’m a sucker for hair treatments, and this is one which certainly works!

150ml jar is priced at £30 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
