L’Oréal Extraordinary Curl Nourishment Conditioner review

The first of its kind from L’Oréal, the Elvive Extraordinary Curl Nourishment collection has been specially formulated for drug afro/curly hair. The collection has a shampoo, rinse out conditioner and hair mask. I was gifted the shampoo and conditioner some time ago (about 2 years smh) and I am only getting around to using them. This post will be a full review on the Curl Nourishment Conditioner which I have been using for the past 2 months.

The Curl Nourishment conditioner has been formulated with alma oil and 6 other oils and promises to provide supreme nourishment, vibrant shine and defined curls


This is a creamy thick conditioner that feels luxurious and smells great. I find this conditioner provides enough slip for detangling my hair.

The L’Oréal Extraordinary Curl Nourishment Conditioner pairs very well with the shampoo and leaves my hair feeling very soft and conditioned. I use a fair amount on each section on hair and use a wide tooth comb from the ends to the root for detangling. It rinses out well and clean.


There isn’t much I can say about the conditioner other than I really love it. It leaves my hair very soft and conditioned plus it has enough slip for detangling. It pairs well with the shampoo but also other shampoos I have used it with.

I think it’s one of the better conditioners in the drugstore: it’s accessible and affordable. It also comes in a big tube of 400ml.

I cant find this online on Boots/Superdrug but you can get it in stores.

L’Oréal Extraordinary Curl Nourishment Shampoo review

The first of its kind from L’Oréal, the Elvive Extraordinary Curl Nourishment collection has been specially formulated for drug afro/curly hair. The collection has a shampoo, rinse out conditioner and hair mask. I was gifted the shampoo and conditioner some time ago (about 2 years smh) and I am only getting around to using them. This post will be a full review on the Curl Nourishment Shampoo which I have been using for the past 2 months.

The Curl Nourishment shampoo has been formulated with alma oil and 6 other oils and promises to provide supreme nourishment, vibrant shine and defined curls


I have been using this shampoo for the last 2 months or so for wash days. It is a thick creamy formula which smells amazing.

I usually do two rinses with the Curl Nourishment shampoo (and all other shampoos tbh) the first rinse is on dry hair and focus on my scalp, I add some water to help me massage and move the product around, then I rinse out, for the second rinse I had a bit more product and also focus on the scalp and use the suds to wash the hair and detangle. This shampoo produces a lot of suds which helps me to finger detangle the hair easily. The shampoo lathers really easily, even on the first rinse and leaves my hair and scalp very clean. My hair feels very soft afterwards, almost like I have conditioned it.



This is a very good shampoo for my 4c hair and I am in love with it. Its smells amazing and you don’t need a lot of product to clean the hair. I have had my hair out for the last months and there has been more on a few times I would go into wash day with very dry brittle hair, this shampoo not only helps to clean my hair but it also leaves it feeling conditioned. I really like the fact that I can easily finger detangle with this product. Overall my hair feels very soft, clean. It doesn’t define my curls but then again I have 4c natural hair, do I see my coils pattern, yes but its nothing I haven’t seen before after using a good shampoo.

I would recommend this shampoo for 4c natural hair. It has SLS in it so if you are trying to avoid sulfates in your shampoo then you may want to steer clear of this. I do not find this shampoo drying at all in fact it’s quite conditioning due to the oils in it.

However, if you want a sulfate free shampoo, this won’t be for you.

L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Curl Nourishment Shampoo is £ 4.99 on Fragrance Direct. For some reason, I can’t find this on Boots/Superdrug online but you can get it in stores


Eco Styler Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil Review

I have rediscovered my natural hair! I’ve been leaving my hair out a lot lately, last year from September to December then in this year, it’s been out since January to April. I got tired of wearing wigs so I just decided to let my hair be (also because I wanted to finish my hair products!). My go-to protective style has been a slick bun – something never thought I could achieve with my 4c hair but I look at me lol.

I picked up the new Eco Styler Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil gel for my slick buns because I had finished the Olive Oil type (I LOVE this!) the new Eco Styler Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil also has vitamin E, Fiber & Omega 3. It promises a max hold of 10 and a max shine and also promises hair growth, no flaking, tack or itching.


I picked up the medium size pot (473ml) of the gel because I wasn’t so sure if I would like it. I have been using it for my slick buns for protective styling. It has the normal eco styler scent and I like the fact that they have changed the tops of the gels to flip tops instead of screw tops.

For the slick bun, I use the gel on soaking wet hair (after leave in)  and apply in sections, smoothing a good amount on the top and bottom of the section and combing it through- there are lots of videos on YT on how to do these.  After working through my hair, I tie my sating scarf and by the next morning, the hair is set. I do like the gel and it does help me achieve a sleek smooth look. The gel doesn’t pile on top of the leave-in conditioner. I would probably give the hold a 7.5/10. I would give the shine a 6.5/10. It’s not an extremely hard hold so it doesn’t make the hair look hard. The hold lasts about 3 days before my scalp feels itchy and I start to see flakes. By day 4 I have to wash it out, it also washes out easily. I completely forgot I wanted to do a review & demo of the gel so this is the only picture I have with my hairstyles with the Eco Styler Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil.

The only issue I have with this: it has shimmer in it! It’s not chunky and it doesn’t leave the hair shimmery so I do not understand why it’s in there.


I do like the Eco Styler Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil however not as much as the Olive Oil type. I feel like the Olive oil has a better hold and a bit more shine to it. The gel makes the hair wavy so if you wanted something sleeker do not use gel (beeswax may be a better option). I do not mind repurchasing this but not straight away, I have repurchased the Olive oil eco styler again.

You can find Eco Styler gels in Boots and Superdrug trust me get them from the hair shops- it’s much cheaper!

ORS Black Olive Oil Repair 7 Shampoo Review

ORS released the Black Olive oil collection back in 2016 but I haven’t heard much about it. I was gifted the collection back then and I have only come round to using it (smh). The Black Olive Oil collection has a shampoo, conditioner and oil elixir and features their trademarked repair 7 formula. This post is a full review on the shampoo.

ORS Black Olive Oil Repair 7 Shampoo is a sulfate free shampoo and promises to cleanse and strengthen all hair textures. The 7 benefits are thermal protection, shine, frizz control, anti breakage, strengthens, reconstructs and adds body.


I have been using the shampoo since December 2018 and I have just a little left for 2 or 3 wash days. The shampoo comes in a big 370ml bottle which will last ages. Although it’s a sulfate free shampoo, this lathers up really well with a small amount. This shampoo looks like it has some shimmer in it although there is no shimmer in my hair. The shampoo and infact the whole collection smells absolutely amazing.

I really love this shampoo for my 4c natural hair because I find it gently cleanses my hair and scalp without stripping it off moisture. Infact, my hair feels very soft no matter how dry my hair is going into that washday. The lather this shampoo produces is very good for finger detangling so I always finger detangle before detangling further with a wide tooth comb and conditioner.

As for the 7 benefits, I do not use heat on my hair so I can’t comment on thermal protection. My hair doesn’t look any shinier, I don’t have frizzy hair and I’m not sure if it adds body because I have natural hair that shrinks in contact with water. As for anti-breakage, I can say it does reduce breakage during the shampooing process.


The shampoo promises to be for all hair textures and I can say it really works well on my natural 4c hair and on my wigs.  I really love this shampoo because it’s great for finger detangling, softens my hair and you only really need a small amount. It has effective cleansing power without over stripping the hair.

I will bring you reviews on the conditioner as well.

I haven’t seen these in store but if you do come across them I definitely recommend!

Aunt Jackie’s Oh so Clean, Moisturising & Softening Shampoo Review


Aunt Jackie’s is a natural hair care brand that has been around for some time. They are more known in the US than here in the UK and I came across them when I attended an event a few years back. I have used their Anti-Poof Moisturising and Softening conditioner previously and I thought it was ok. I preferred more as a Cowash (can be used as so) than a moisturising conditioner and I remember it has a good amount of slip.

This post will be a full review on the Oh so Clean, moisturising & softening shampoo. The shampoo has been enriched with coconut and extra virgin olive oils and shea butter to soften the hair. It also promises detangling hair bath to help you detangle.


The shampoo has a pleasant scent and it’s thick and very slimy. Overall my experience with that was a bit of an anti-climax.

The shampoo promises to add moisture and soften the hair. I was eager to use this as with 4c natural hair my hair can get very dry quickly. The shampoo was ok but I have definitely used better. It doesn’t strip my hair/scalp of its natural oils but I was expecting so much more from the ‘hair bath’. It does a good job of cleansing. In terms of detangling, the shampoo lathers up really well even with a fair amount and helps to finger detangle. It isn’t the most detangling shampoo I have used but it helps


I wish the hole dispenser was smaller. As the shampoo is very slimy, a lot comes out when dispensed and you really only need a small amount. The hole isn’t very big but I think a smaller hole would have been better. I think the Aunt Jackie’s shampoo is an ok shampoo for natural hair. I was expecting more from this but I was a bit let down by its performance. It cleanses well and some moisture and softens the hair but for me, I have used better which is why I think I am very critical of the shampoo.

Aunt Jackie’s Oh so Clean, moisturising & softening shampoo is £6.99 and available on Amazon

Brand Review- Shea Moisture

Hi guys, I am back with another brand review. If you are new to this series, welcome! The series is about giving you an overview of all the products I have tried from a brand and how to easily fit them into a routine. I have quite a few on my blog, my popular ones are The Ordinary and Bodyshop.

Today we are focusing on Shea Moisture, the popular US brand that launched over 2 years ago in the UK. They have many product collections that target different hair types and concerns, be sure to check out the help chart I created a few years back to help you decide which collection is best for you.  PS I need to update it with the new products they have launched!


Shampoos– I have tried Multi-Benefit 10 in 1 shampoo which was really great at softening my hair and adding moisture, this is best for finger detangling as it provides slip. I also like the Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention shampoo. I felt like the benefits were quite similar to the 10 in 1 shampoo as it also left my hair soft and moisturised but didn’t have enough slip for detangling. I also have the Jamaican Black Castor Oil shampoo but I haven’t used that yet.

Routine step- shampoo once or twice a week depending on product build-up and following pre-poo.

Conditioners– I have tried the matching 10 in 1 rinse out conditioner which I think was nice. It was slippery enough to detangle and the scent was great. I also used the Raw Shea Butter Restorative rinse out conditioner and the Deep Treatment Masque. (If you don’t know the difference between a rinse out conditioner and a masque read my previous post here). Both conditioners are okay. They don’t have enough slip to properly detangle although I feel the rinse out conditioner has more slip than the masque. In terms of how they leave the hair, again I feel like it softens and repairs it but I would like more softness. They are still very good conditioners but I have used better. I also prefer the rinse out conditioner over the masque.

Routine step- after shampooing. Apply and cover with a plastic bag or sit under a hooded dryer.

Leave in conditioners/treatment– I have used the 100% virgin coconut oil leave in treatment. My full review is here. Simply put I love this leave in and it works well both on natural hair and extensions. Another great leave from SM is the Jamaican black castor oil leave in conditioner. That conditioner leaves my hair so silky and soft without the need of an oil. I have a full review here. The Jamaican Black Castor Oil edge treatment is one confusing product. They claim it can be used to smooth edges but it doesn’t have any hold. It’s an edge treatment used to grow/repair edges but in the times I have used it consistently I can’t say I noticed any improvements.

Routine step- leave in conditioner as and when needed. Edge Treatment- weekly on edges

Did you know shea moisture have skincare products? They have a good amount of products, some of which are available in the UK but I think they are quite difficult to come by. My only SM skincare product is the African black soap clarifying mud face mask. I have had this for a while now. It’s a nice mud mask, not drying or thick as you may expect from a mud mask and it spreads very easily. I like using it mostly in the summer but let’s be honest it’s not real authentic black soap used. They also have a makeup line but to my knowledge that is not available in the UK.

Routine step- 2 to 3 times a week after cleansing. Most suitable for oily skin

So that’s it folks, everything I have tried from Shea Moisture. It is not indicative of the many products SM have but what I have tried suits my hair type and concern. If you have 4c hair that is prone to dryness and breakage like mine then I think these products will work best for you. I did notice the texture/consistency (more fluid and less studs but still good) of the two shampoos I have used changed over time from when I first used them. I know it was probably a year in between uses but I haven’t experienced that with my other shampoos

Shea Moisture hair products are available from Boots & Superdrug. Some of their skincare products are available from MyLuxeBeauty.


Give me a shout if you have tried these products and love or hate them!




Crème of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo Review


Crème of Nature has been a brand that’s been around for a while! I love their products especially the Argan Oil Collection! It performs well and it smells great. Whilst I haven’t tried a lot of products from the brand, what I have tried I have loved! One of my fav spray leave-in conditioners is from Crème of Nature, check out the review here

Today’s post will be a full review on the Crème of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo. This is a sulfate free shampoo that promises to gently cleanse the hair, help detangle whilst adding shine, softness and strength to the hair. It’s been formulated with Argan oil from Morocco.


I have had this shampoo for a while and I have been using it on and off as I had older products to get through. For the last month and a half though, I have been using it consistently and I am now out of it. This shampoo has the same great scent as the rest of the products in the Argan Oil collection.

The shampoo has a thick consistency and a fair amount gives a lot of suds. I really like this shampoo because it really softens my hair. I have been wearing my hair out a lot lately and been quite lazy to moisturise it, actually I have chosen a slick bun as my protective style so it’s quite difficult to properly moisture without having to take it apart and start again so it’s safe to say going into my weekly wash days, my hair has been dry. The shampoo gently cleanses my hair and scalp and softens it.

In terms of detangling, I think this shampoo provided enough slip for finger detangling which I absolutely love. It always makes subsequent detangling with conditioner and a comb easier and quicker even when my hair is tangled quite a bit. I think I took a while to use it because it thought it wasn’t suitable for natural hair so I was only using it on my wigs for a while. It also performed really well on them


An excellent choice of shampoo for all hair textures including natural hair. I really like how it softens my hair and helps me detangle it. The scent is a bonus. One thing I will comment though is the texture of the shampoo changed in the last few months I was using it HOWEVER I have also used it on and off for 2 years (don’t judge me) or maybe longer and once a product is opened there is a best before time period to use it by. It still worked absolutely fine anyway but just something to note if you have had this shampoo for a while and it looks like it has changed textured.

I will recommend this.

Crème of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo is £4.99 at Superdrug

Brand Review: Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula

Is Palmer’s the best-scented brand in the drugstore? There isn’t a product I have used from Palmer’s that I didn’t enjoy the scent (ok so maybe 1 or 2). Palmer’s have a ton of products across Haircare, Body care and Skincare but most of the products I have used from them are from their Haircare and Bodycare collections!

As with all my brand reviews, I will also mention how to use them in a routine!


Hair Cleansers – I absolutely love the Palmer’s Olive Oil Smoothing shampoo. The shampoo has a lot of slip and gently cleanses my hair leaving it soft. Read my full review here. They have two co-washes, one from the Coconut Oil range and the other from the Olive Oil range. I love both of them but I love the Olive Oil Formula cowash better.  I have also used the Manuka Flower Honey Strengthening Shampoo which I liked too.

Routine step- once or twice a week depending on product build up. Shampoo after pre-pooing

Rinse out Conditioners– the Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner is the perfect partner to the Olive Oil Smoothing shampoo! I also have a full review here. I also used their Manuka Flower Honey Nourishing Conditioner which I liked. I also have the Repairing Coconut Oil conditioner (new addition) but I haven’t used that yet.

Routine step- after shampooing. Leave for 5-10 mins with heat then rinse out

Leave In Conditioners/Moisturisers/Oils– From the Manuka Flower Honey range, I have used the spray Leave-In conditioner which I adore! It hydrates and it’s so quick and easy to use under protective styling. I have also used the Leave-in Conditioning Cream from this range and it’s ok. I wish it added more moisture to the hair. I have the Coconut Oil Hair Milk which is nice. It moisturises the hair and smells great but too much will leave white flakes in the hair. The Olive Oil spray Leave in conditioner is probably my fav leave in from Palmers! I used the Palmer’s Olive Oil Conditioning spray in my box braids hair care routine. Check out that post here. I also have the Olive Oil Dry Oil but I haven’t used that yet.

Routine step- leave-in conditioners on damp hair after wash day. Do not rinse out. Use before other styling products. Hair milk as a leave in or hair moisturiser. Oil- use as part or LOC or LCO method for moisturising hair. Use as a hair oil as needed.

I have the Olive Oil Edge control but I have not used it yet


Let’s start with something everybody has probably used before or at least every Ghanaian person lol. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lotion or the Palmers Cocoa Butter solid jar. I absolutely adore the Palmers Cocoa Butter Body Oil! It smells amazing, leaves the skin moisturised, soft and silky and isn’t too oily! It sinks into the skin quickly! It was my saviour in the summer! I also love the Palmers Cocoa Butter body scrub! The same great scent and leaves skin soft and smooth. It’s not very gritty but it gets the job done. I also had used the Palmers Coconut oil body oil. I used this in my body butter mixes. I didn’t use the Anti-Aging Smoothing lotion consistently enough to notice any results. It is a non-greasy lotion that adds some hydration but not a lot.

Routine step- after showering or as needed


Whilst they have a good range of products in their skincare range, I have only used two products from them. Firstly their famous original ultra-moisturising lip balm! This was bae back in high school and I bought it back to back! It heals chapped lips and leaves the lips so soft. I recently fell in love with their Multi Perfecting Facial oil. Its light , moisturises and doesn’t clog pores. It also doubles up as a great body oil

Routine step- Lip balm as needed. Facial Oil- after serums and before creams

That’s all folks! Everything I have used from Palmers! I love their hair care products as much as I love their body care products! They have a good skincare collection which I would like to try more of in the future.

Are you a Palmer’s fan? Let me know your favourite product!

Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Leave In Treatment Review

shea moisture 100% virgin coconut oil leave in treatment review

Shea Moisture is a popular natural hair brand with a TON of products! They have a lot of product collections, each one targeting a different hair concern. I have used a few of their products ( Superfruit collection review ) across the collections (I smell a brand review coming up!) and I am impressed! Today’s post will be a full review on the 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Leave-In Treatment, I received in my goody bag from a Natural Hair class hosted by BrownBeautyTalk. For snippets of the event, make sure you check out the website! Follow us and keep your eye peeled for our next event!

Shea Moisture’s 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Leave-In Treatment promises easier manageability and softer hair whilst protecting the hair from heat. It also reduces frizz and helps to hydrate and detangle hair.


I have been using and LOVING this leave-in treatment since I got it at the end of last month from the event. It is a lightweight milk that sprays in a fine mist. The scent is heavenly! Somewhere between coconuts and the beach

I have used this on both my natural hair and my curly and wavy extensions. For natural hair, I use it as the Liquid in the L.O.C method and generally when I need extra hydration. It softens my hair and keeps it hydrated, it’s not oily and it doesn’t weigh it down. I also like it especially for use when I have protective styling, it’s a quick and easy way to add hydration.

For my deep curly extensions, the leave in treatment helps to define the curls and reduce frizz. When I don’t have time to use a curl enhancer for defining the curls on the unit, I simply use this spray and finger comb/detangle the curls. For my wavy extensions, the spray helps me detangle, add hydration without weighing it down or leaving oily residue. I also simply love the scent, I may have abused it by spraying a LOT of this onto my units- one time I was on the tube getting off and a girl must have got a whiff of it because she said to her friend, that girl’s hair smells amazing lool


I love this leave in conditioner! I am a huge fan of spray leave-in conditioners because they are so quick and easy to use! This one from Shea Moisture definitely hydrates and softens my hair (I have 4c hair) without any extra oily residue. My bottle didn’t last a month only because I am sure I abused it lol and I tend to use a lot of leave in for my hair. It imparts a lasting hydration to the hair and it also works well with curly extensions!

I definitely recommend and 100% will purchase.

Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Leave In Treatment is £10.99 FeelUnique and Boots


Ultimate Empties Challenge- October

October felt super long right? I couldn’t wait for the month to end to bring you another instalment of my Ultimate Empties Challenge! I hit my target of 250 empties last month! So from now till 31 Dec, I am trying to finish as much as possible! I have definitely seen a HUGE decrease in my collection and spending habits and it makes me so happy!

Anyway let’s get into this post

Cleansers & Toners


Tri Balm– read my full review here, this cleansing stick lasted about 8 weeks and I was using it twice a day. I finally finished my final tub of the Nip Fab Dragon’s blood cleansing pads (well I technically had 2 backups left but I gave them away). BodyShop Vitamin E face spritz– I love using this as a 1st mist in my makeup routine. I have an in-depth post on this hereGatineau Gentle Silk Cleanser– this is a cult product I simply couldn’t get into, my full review is hereGlossier Milky Jelly Cleanser– it was only the sample size but I did not like this AT ALL. I felt like I was just moving stuff around my face, it did not leave it feeling clean. It doesn’t foam/lather. 2x face wipes- Boots Cleansings wipes– rubbish and they feel damp/dry on the skin and Primark Micellar Wipes– amazing and really good at removing makeup. Finally 2x Nip Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing pads travel size

Face masks

I’m continuing my reign of Sephora sheet masks (I’m trying to use every ‘flavour’ they have) this time I used the Aloe VeraGrape and Lychee face masks. I loved them all but of these 3 I definitely liked the Aloe vera. I also used the matching Sephora Lychee Eye Mask– it was nice and refreshing but it kept slipping down. The Nip Fab Dragon’s Blood Plumping mask was a really nice mask for hydration and plumping. It is a gel-textured mask formulated with amino acids and dragon’s blood to hydrate and plump the skin. I loved this. I found it soothing and hydrating and it was also a good mask to mix with my Vitamin C powder from The Ordinary. The texture does change with the powder added but it gives it a little shot of brightening properties. Clarins Hydra Quench Cream Mask was just beautiful to use. It softens and hydrates the skin and very soothing too. GlamGlow Thirstmud is probably the best hydrating mask out of the bunch. It hydrates and brightens skin. It does sting a bit but not as much as the youth Mud. The Bobbi Brown Skin Nourish Mask which was a huge disappointment. I noticed no difference in my skin. I purchased this as a trio and the other masks were also a huge letdown. Finally, Origins Retexturising mask– a mask I was let down by as I love the Origins Clear Improvement charcoal mask. This mask was difficult to spread, felt drying and slightly itchy on my face and the performance was unremarkable. The pot probably had enough for 3 or 4 applications but after the 1st use, it dried up and became really difficult to spread so I was forced to use it up on 2nd application. It’s a good idea to have sample/travel sizes of the masks but not when it renders the products ineffective. Resealable packaging would be a better idea!


Serums & Creams

BodyShop SPF 50– my 5th tube of this stuff probably. The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2%– I have been gushing over this all summer! My full review will be up soon.  Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturiser– a beautiful lightweight moisturiser that sinks into the skin and adds hydration. It’s not oily/greasy. I really like layering this on top of my serums. Sunday Riley Good Genes– I loved this! I have a full review on this soon! Sunday Riley CEO serum– this was a let-down but I have a full review coming soon where I will talk about it in more detail. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion– pimple redeemer! Lol I like to use this when I feel/see a pimple forming, it stings a little but use it at just the right time and it will prevent the pimple from forming! It also dries out formed pimples in 1-3 days. I have repurchased. This actually lasts a very long time because you’re literally using a tiny amount every time. Sephora Instant Moisture water gel– this was a lovely hydrating gel that I used when I was on holiday. It sinks into the skin, adds hydration and radiance. I wanted to see about purchasing the full size but I couldn’t find it in store (that’s how long I have had it!)

Hair care

Finally, we have some more action in the hair product empties and it looks like it will carry on! Shea Moisture Leave in– this is so beautiful and easy to use! I have a full review coming soon. ORS Monoi Oil Edge Control– holds it down for 10 mins then melts, the scent is nice but it lingers during the day. Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque– it’s okay, it moisturises my hair but I could do with a bit more. It doesn’t have a lot of slip so proceed with caution when detangling. Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner– I liked this one better and this had a bit more slip than the masque. The rinse out conditioner also softens my hair better and moisturises it more. Aphogee Balancing Moisturiser– you use this as part of the 2 step protein treatment but on its own, this is very nice too. Ogx Extra Strength Argan Oil shampoo– a lovely shampoo and gives a lot of lather and perfect for finger detangling. It also works to soften the hair! Grow Gorgeous Scalp detox– I got this in a Glossy box. It smells great and although it’s a scalp scrub, I mainly used it as a pre-poo. It left my hair so soft! I also used it to massage my scalp and it was actually nice. It’s grainy so it helps to get rid of build-up and stimulate blood flow to the scalp. It’s a nice pre-poo treatment but I am a big oil pre-poo girl so I won’t be running to buy this


Only two makeup items: Tarte Ready Set Radiant Setting spray– I hated this. It dries in patches, leaves the skin sticky and highlights texture on the skin. It adds some radiance to the skin after powdering but I absolutely hate when setting sprays leave patches on the skin. This is the second mist from Tarte I have used and both of them were a let-down. Soap & Glory Supercat eyeliner– this is a very good liner, its super black (matte) and stays all day but the annoying thing about this? It doesn’t dry quickly so there have been many times I would use it then use my setting spray maybe 2-3 mins later only to get a dark faint liner in my crease lol. I have had this liner for 3 years 10 months (don’t judge me)


Palmer’s Moisturising Body oil– such a lovely body oil and a pleasure to use. This is my 2nd bottle (or is it 3rd) I used it throughout the summer. 2 more BodyShop mini body butters in Satsuma & Strawberry.


2 mini Angel Muse perfume from Thierry Mugler. 2 essential oils in Peppermint & Spearmint. Cotton rounds from Superdrug and the Wet Ones Be fresh wipes I got in a Glossy box

If you think today’s post is super long that’s because I finished wait for it, a whopping 43 products this month! Sis! 43! My highest empties so far, I am so happy! This brings my total so far to 300 empties!

300 empties!! Go me!! This challenge is really forcing me to use my products and since I am very competitive even with myself lol I don’t want to lose. I am also seeing improvements in skin too because I am actually using my stuff lol.

Catch you later
