Hair Products

Recently I have brought a few new hair products and they include the John Frieda shampoo and conditioner, as well as Tresemm√©  shampoo and conditioner.

The John Frieda Dream Curls shampoo is a Frizz Ease product and is said that it 'cleanses and adds hydration for salon-perfect curls'. On the back of the bottle it says that it 'defines and enhances curls' and I can definitely see the difference in my hair when I use it. My hair definitely isn't as frizzy as it usually is. When I use this I also use my Frizz Ease, Dream Curls conditioner.  This one is said to 'detangle for defined, salon-perfect curls' and that it 'defines, enhances and moisturises curls'. With these two products my hair feels softer and doesn't look frizzy. It has a fresh sweet scent and they both have the same packaging. The packaging is a grey, silvery colour; with blue and purple on the front. I found when I brought it that I was drawn to it in the shop because of this. You obviously need to start with the shampoo and apply it to wet hair, lather and rinse well. You then follow on with the conditioner, for this you just need to smooth the conditioner through wet hair and rinse well. I tend to leave it in for a bit just so it can work properly.

I have also got the Tresemm√© shampoo and conditioner. They have a sweet, fruity scent. The shampoo is in a black bottle with a bit of white, silver and green. This is supposed to 'cleanse and remove build up'.  It is 'multi-vitamin, deep cleansing for all hair types'. You just have to apply to wet hair from roots to ends. You then need to work it into a lather and gently massage the scalp. After that, you need to rinse thoroughly and then use the Tresemm√© conditioner. This is in a white bottle with a bit of green, silver and black. It is said to 'replenish hair's vitality'. It contains pro vitamins b5 and aloe and it is said to re-moisturise for all hair types. The way that they recommend using this product is to rub in the conditioner from mid lengths to ends and then run a comb or your fingers through your hair from roots to tips to detangle and work into hair. You should leave it on for 2-3 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. This makes your hair feel smooth and look amazing.

My Make Up Routine

I usually do the same make up routine in the mornings. I start with my liquid foundation, which is usually my Maybelline New York Dream Satin Liquid and I apply this by squirting some onto the back of my hand. I then use my foundation brush to apply it to my face.  I make sure that it is equally rubbed into my face so there are no patches.

After that I use my Make up Academy Pro-Base Eye Primer and just evenly put that on my eyelid using my finger. This is just to help keep my eye shadow on for longer.


I then use the Maybelline New York Pressed Powder and brush it all over my face including my eyelids. If you don't put some on your eyelids then they are going to be lighter than the rest of your face.

The eye shadow I apply next is usually the Revolution Makeup Revolution London and I use a smallish, fluffy eye shadow brush to apply it with and just put it on my eyelid. I sometimes use more than one colour. The colour I usually use is a gold or brown shade.

Once I have applied this and I am happy with it I then apply my mascara; this is usually my MUA lash boom and my Make up Gallery Never Ending Story lengthening mascara . I find that they go really well together.

The last thing that I do make up wise is apply my lip gloss or lip stick. I like to use either a nude or light pink shade. These two are probably my favourites at the moment.

This is the end of my daily make up routine.

Zoella Products

Zoella is one of my favourite youtubers and I was given some of her products for Christmas. These 3 products came in a set, including a body mist, a body lotion and a head band. The packaging in which contains these products is eye catching and the colours that are on it go well together.

The perfume bottle looks very attractive and the colours look nice together. The bottle is clear and there are small white dots on the back of the bottle. This perfume is called 'Blissful Mistful' which is written in gold on the front. It has a fruity, fresh scent.

The body lotion in this set is called 'Creamy Madly Dreamy'. It is attractive packaging, It has a pretty gold pattern on the top and bottom of the tube and has a pink lid. This product is a good size, it is quite small so you can fit it into your handbag without taking up much space; or if you want to take it away with you it is easy to fit in a small bag. This body lotion makes your skin smell nice and it makes it smooth. It has a creamy texture and scent.

I use the head band to keep my hair out of my face when I am using face masks and sometimes when I am applying my make up. This helps as it prevents face mask and make up, such as, foundation, from getting in your hair. I think that the colours are really nice.
