Pureology Fullfyl Shampoo

I’ve been using this range for a couple of months now & since I coloured my hair red, it’s become my goto shampoo. The Fullfyl Haircare System are a range of products which give volume, thickness and added texture to fine colour treated hair. Their signature AntiFade Complex includes a blend of antioxidants and full spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreens which care for your colour and optimise colour retention along with protecting your locks from hard environmental aggressors and damaging free radicals This is a gentle shampoo but your hair still feels clean after using it, but not stripped or dry. Its 100% vegan, sulphate free.

OGARIO Revive and Shine Conditioner

This is one of those conditioners that you fall in love with from the very first use. I have the shampoo from this range too and they work well as a duo but I adore the conditioner. This is a great conditioner for nourishing and giving your hair that healthy glossy finish. Thanks to the combination of hibiscus (which nourishes the hair) and horsetail (which gives your hair that lovely shine) I also like that this product is fantastic at detangling knot prone hair, like mine. I am impressed with this brand and all three of the products I’ve tried have been incredible quality.

Decléor Aroma Cleanse Shower and Bath Gel

I do like an indulgent body product and often think we focus much of our time and money on products for our hair and face and our body can get overlooked. This Decléor shower gel is beautiful, it is luxurious but it leaves my skin feeling and smelling like I have been to a SPA. It has Essential Oils of Lemon, Lavender and Seaweed extract which awaken the skin, whilst the refreshing gel turns into a beautiful gentle and invigorating foam bestowing a real feeling of vitality. Such a treat for my morning shower.

Elizabeth Grant Graceful Angel Body Lotion

This is quite a sweet scented body lotion which isn’t usually my cup of tea but after the initial sweetness the scent settles down to be subtle and fresh. I like using this on my legs after I have shaved, its hydrating and l like how smooth and soft this leaves my skin. I am trying to be better at using body lotion in 2017 as I quite often neglect this step in my skin care regime. I’m not too sure if you can purchase this separately as It came as part of a skincare set but Elizabeth Grant always have great gift set offers so keep an eye out for those over on Ideal World TV.

ESPA Pink Hair and Scalp Mud Mask

I have spoke about this hair mask quite a few times but it is THAT good that its getting another mention. I only have a couple of uses left in this pot & I’m 100% going to repurchase it. This is the hair mask you use when you have a good amount of time on your hands to relax and let it work its magic, I like to leave it on for at least an hour. Its a mask that will help hair that is heat damaged, dry and even dull. Vitamin C-rich watercress and Apricot kernel oil soothes and nourishes your scalp, while the red clay stimulates circulation to help boost growth and strengthen and promote healthy, glossy, manageable hair. After using this your hair feels silky smooth and has a healthy bounce to it. I also like the luxury feel to the packaging, as with all ESPA products they have fantastic attention to detail.

Three Pamper Products

January Pamper Session Products

January Pamper Session Products

I’m trying to ignore the fact the weather is awful, the nights are dark and January is historically a month I eat my weight in chocolate & I have been forcing myself to be more positive, active and have regular pamper sessions. I always neglect my body in the winter months and this year I didn’t want it to be that way so these three products have been regular features of my Sunday night pamper sessions for the past 6 weeks and I love them so much!

MONU Warming Ginger Body Oil

This is a gorgeously indulgent product and its all about creating that Spa experience at home. This Oil can be used in three ways, as a body oil, in shower oil or put a few drops in your warm bath. It smells incredible, leaves your skin so soft and nourished and is a lovely indulgent treat. I like that it’s not at all greasy and is the perfect pampering treat for your body. It includes,

  • An uplifting mixture of aromatic Ginger, Lemongrass and Orange essential oils is sure to awaken the senses and provide an energising kick to tired muscles.
  • Added active ingredients such as Calendula, Jojoba Seed Oil and Vitamins A and E deliver all you need to gently restore natural softness to the skin.

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

Taking the day off is what I like to do every evening, cleanse off all the dirt and makeup at the end of a busy day. I don’t just save this for the weekend but it still feels like a treat because it’s so gentle on my skin and it really does take off every stitch of makeup. I scoop a little product out and massage it into my skin for a good few minutes (the balm turns into an oil), taking the time to work the product in and help it dissolve my makeup. Then with a damp face cloth I wipe it all off – my makeup comes off very easily no vigorous rubbing needed, it even removes my mascara.

ESPA Pink Hair and Scalp Mud Mask* 

My hair has looked and felt so dry and frizzy these past few weeks & this mask has really helped to bring some shine back and also smooth the frizz. This mask is pink and it smells so rich and luxurious. You massage a generous amount into your scalp and through damp hair, sit back and relax for 20 minutes then rinse thoroughly. I thought because this is a mud mask it would be a little tricky to rinse out but it wasn’t difficult at all. ESPA also recommend you use this overnight for more of an intense treatment, I haven’t tried that yet but I will soon. The mask contains,

  • Red Clay stimulates circulation to the scalp improving hair growth
  • Apricot, Bergamot and Orange Oils nourish and aid manageability and gloss
  • Vitamin C rich Watercress helps to soothe your scalp

I like that its designed to be nourishing and beneficial for not only your hair but also your scalp too, it leaves my hair smelling lovely whilst feeling so soft and glossy. Its a treat for sure and I love using it when I am having a pamper evening. All ESPA products come beautifully packaged, they make the whole experience luxurious from the scent of the product to the luxurious packaging. You really feel like you’re having an at home Spa experience.
