Hi beauty lovers, 

How are you all doing? Hope you are having a great start to the week!

IMG_8611

Yesterday, I released a BONUS video up on my channel and it was all about my April Favourites; ranging from hair products, skincare and makeup!

My April 2017 Favourites – 

IMG_8622

Tangle Teezer 

I love using this to untie my knots that seem to love my hair! I love using in this show before applying conditioner and before rinsing it off. This helps my hair in not getting too tangled after coming out of the shower!

TRESemme’ Salon Sleek Frizz Control Smooth Memory Spray

I love using this before straightening my hair and to keep my hair from frizzing after having had a shower!

Arad Facial Cleansing Milk 

This has been my favourite product to use to remove my makeup! It literally takes off any makeup you could possibly use! It is so soft and gentle on the skin. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

Arad Mineral Facial Scrub

I have been using this in conjunction with my Vichy cleanser and have loved the combination. It really has helped my pores decrease in size and helped keep my face cleansed and clean. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

IMG_8638

I have been using this primer constantly this month – as in April! It helps keep my makeup last longer and also helps create a nice base before applying other makeup products! It also helps decrease the look of pores!

L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation

IMG_8623

I have been wanting to buy this foundation for a while now and now having tried it I can say it was worth the wait and the money! I would say this a medium to full coverage – very buildable! I love how it sits on the skin – not cakey whatsoever!

Collection  Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

IMG_8639

For the price it is amazing! One of my favourite concealers to highlight the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow and chin! And also to conceal under my eyes. It doesn’t crease and lasts all day!

Wycon Prime and Fine Powder

IMG_8640

This sets my foundation and concealer nicely. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and the shade is perfect and blends well!

Milani Baked blush in Berry Amore 

I love this blush – it’s like a mix of orange, pink and gold altogether! It has tiny glitter speckles which adds to the intensity and glimmer of this blush! I also love the packaging of the baked blushes by Milani!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

I have been wanting this product ever since I saw Kathleen Lights rave about it so many times! I ordered mine off ebay! I forgot to say in the video that it has an intense summer smell that makes you excited for beach and summer days. It just creates a natural and bronzed look. It is very light weight and not that intense – my favourite!

Sleek Precious Metals Highlight Palette 

The packaging is gorgeous and the highlights are amazing! My favourite shade is Antique Bronze which is a lovely gold cream highlight. Perfect for not pointing out your pores more as a powder highlight would!

Max Factor Natural Brow Styler

IMG_8636

I love this as it settles and tames my brows in place. It keeps them intact all throughout the day and dries clearly.

IMG_8634

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

This mascara has been an old favourite of mine. It just separates and lengthens my lashes nicely. It also doesn’t transfer on eyelids.

Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

Yes if you are doing a physical activity and you are wearing this – it may transfer on your eyelids. But it just lengthens and volumises the lashes ever so nicely!

Essence The Cushion Eyeliner

I had never used a cushion eyeliner before and let me just say this small pot really impressed me! It just creates a lovely intense black line!

Essence The Eyeliner Waterproof Pen

You can create a thick or bold line with this waterproof pen. It doesn’t move either! It is not patchy whatsoever although, as the day goes by it does become patchy and you might want to retouch it.

BH Cosmetics Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale- Beach Goddess Palette –

IMG_8616

This palette is just too cute. I love the shades they are all so natural and you can create different looks. My favourite shades from this palette are Fiji – a cream shade , Maui – a copper shade and St. Lucia – a bronze shade. The eyeshadows are also so pigmented and blend nicely together.

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Sizzle

You know that I love these lipsticks! I also includes this shade in my Favourite Spring Lipsticks video and couldn’t resist but to include this in my April Favourites too! I love this shade – it is a beautiful orange/red shade! This one isn’t patchy whatsoever!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip – Point Zero

I know that this doesn’t look like a spring shade but I loved wearing it this month and found myself reaching it for it more than I thought I would. The wand isn’t my favourite, but once applied I love the shade on my lips. It is like a brown/nude shade and has a bit of a satin shimmer finish. This was one of the collaborations Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop.

Favourite TV Show – 13 Reasons Why

Oh my god – if you haven’t seen this you really should! It is a Netflix TV Show made up of 13 episodes – 13 reasons why Hannah did what she did! It is a different story from what you normally see but worth watching because these things actually do happen and we need to have our eyes opened more!

Favourite Movie – Beauty and the Beast

This is such a cute movie. I normally do not like movies which have songs in them like musicals do. But I didn’t mind the songs in this movie! The costumes and the hair was amazing and I love the little cutlery dancing around the objects being animate. Watching this movie also brought back childhood memories of when I used to see the cartoon movie on tape!

What were your favourites of April 2017? Have you tried any of the above products?

Chi Malta – Tea Tree Oil Range

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are all doing great!

Today’s blog post is all about the Tea Tree Oil range by Chi. A big thanks goes to Chi Malta for giving me this lovely opportunity of trying out these products and sharing them with you all!

16976685_10210653584068421_1907789306_n

I have been using these products for nearly 3 months now. I have psoriasis on my scalp which is a condition that leaves my scalp all itchy and flakey! But this hair range has helped in soothing my scalp without leaving my hair dry and boring; as that is what happens when I use psoriasis appropriate shampoos.

This is a shampoo that you can use if you have psoriasis as in my case it didn’t give me any reactions after having used the products. I also use the Tea Tree Hair range with other Chi products such as the Kardashian Beauty line and the Rose Hip Oil Range (a review on these products will be coming out soon too!)

img_7804

All the Tea Tree Oil products are Tea Tree scented – therefore if you are not a fan of that scent I wouldn’t recommend. However, for me it doesn’t bother me, in fact I have grown to like the scent as I have not always been a fan. Also all products are Paraben Free.

Tea Tree Oil – Shampoo

img_7805

The shampoo gently cleanses your scalp and helps in ‘removing any impurities’ whilst balancing oils in the scalp and strengthening the hair. I apply the shampoo first of course by using a small amount and using my palms to distribute it evenly though my damp hair. I than leave it sit for a bit before rinsing it off with lukewarm water.

I really do believe that it has helped my hair grow and not remain the same exact length. Yes it is a slow growth process but I have noticed that my hair is growing faster than it usually does when using other hair products.

Of course I cannot say that it is only thanks to the Tea Tree Oil hair range that is making hair growth happen, because as I said before I use other Chi products; because what I do is use the Tea Tree Oil range three times and then use either the Kardashian Beauty or Rose Hip Oil range the following wash after.

Tea Tree Oil – Revitalizing Masque

I almost have finished this product and I hope I am not using more than I should! This masque is filled with ‘rich conditioning ingredients’ and helps to provide moisture to the hair and ‘restores vitality’.

I use this after rinsing off the shampoo and apply this only from the middle parts of my hair to the ends. I leave it sit for around 5-10 minutes and then rinse with cool water.

I notice that when I don’t apply the masque, my hair isn’t as soft as when I would have applied it. It also helps in having knot free hair.

Tea Tree Oil – Conditioner 

img_7809

The conditioner helps to add moisture and nourishes the hair. It is a soothing agent and is quite a ‘lightweight conditioner’. I apply this after I have rinsed off the masque.

I use a small amount and use my palms of my hands to distribute evenly from the middle sections of my hair to ends. I personally do not use this on my scalp. I then leave it to sit for 3-5 minutes and rinse with warm water.

What I like doing is I take my detangler brush with me in the shower and before applying my conditioner I gently brush my hair and then apply my conditioner. I do this so if I have any knots I detangle them.

I find that this helps me once I am out of the shower as my hair tends to get knotted easily. After having come out of the shower I use my brush again to brush my hair. Since I already have brushed it beforehand it isn’t as knotty as it would have been if I skipped the brushing step in the shower!

Chi Tea Tree Oil – Serum 

After having brushed my hair I apply a small amount of this serum. You can apply this on wet or dry hair.

This serum is made up of Tea Tree and Peppermint. It includes essential nutrients for ‘silky, smooth and healthy looking hair’ whilst also having ‘UV and thermal protection’.

After applying all these products I dry my hair with a hair dryer or leave it to dry on its own. The result is soft, silky, smooth, healthy and knot free hair. I find that my hair gets a bit dry on the third day after having used the Tea Tree Oil range.

And finally, thanks to Chi Malta I was also given to test out the –

 Chi Tea Tree Oil – Soothing Scalp Spray

If I feel my scalp itching in any way I use this soothing scalp spray. It helps in ‘relieving the itching or irritation’. i simply spray where the itching is occurring and leave it sit and not rinse.

The itching sensation usually subsides after a few minutes. I do not tend to reach for this product a lot.

I really hope you enjoyed reading my blog post! Have you ever tried out any of these products by Chi? Or maybe others? 

Thank you so much for reading!

The Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Oil Hair Products – Review

Hi everyone! 

I am so excited to be coming with a review about a Shampoo, Conditioner and a Black Seed Dry Oil!

img_7382

I had been wanting to try out this hair care line after seeing many posts all over Facebook of people trying it out! Thanks to CHI MaltaYou could visit their Facebook Page for more product info – I got the opportunity!!

I have been trying out these products I would say for over a month and it was about time I wrote up a review!

Before doing so, I should remind you about my hair type – I have a dry/oily scalp. Mostly oily at the top and dry at my ends. I also have psoriasis which is a skin issue whereby I only use the Kardashian Beauty products once every three times I wash it.

I cannot use these products alone due to this skin issue as I could have flare ups! I actually am using this alongside the Chi Tea Tree Oil Hair Care line! Yes I will be posting a review on those products soon!

16357681_10210405109736718_511168008_o

With this combo I have found my hair to be softer, more voluminous and looks more alive rather than just sitting there on my head looking as plain as can be; as this was the actual state of my hair when I only used psoriasis treatment shampoos – they made my hair lose its texture as well as its shape!

The products I have tried from the Kardashian Beauty Line are – The Black Seed Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo, the Black Seed Oil Rejuvenating Conditioner and finally the Black Seed Dry Oil!

I received it in this gorgeous bag which I absolutely adore – perfect for travelling! I also got a bath sponge as well!

The Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo 

images-1

This shampoo comes in a clear gel sort of formula; it does not have such a strong scent to it, which I actually was looking for. However, when drying it I don’t know if it is the shampoo or conditioner but I do find to have a nice scent to my hair.

It gently cleansed my hair without stripping it out of its moisture-y feeling! I was also happy with how the shampoo made my hair feel soft and light to my finger tips when rinsing off the product! It also helped cleanse my hair of any impurities.

The Shampoo also states to help protect hair against environmental stressors and strengthens the hair. I do find my hair to be more healthier and glow-y when using these new products!

The Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Oil Rejuvenating Conditioner

Before I use any conditioner, I always like using my de-tangler brush to brush my hair in the shower. I then would apply the conditioner to the ends of my hair and let it sit a bit before rinsing it out!

The formula of this conditioner worked very well on my hair! After allowing it to sit and then rinsing it off, my hair felt so soft and silky – I loved the feeling! It did not feel dry whatsoever! With every time I use this conditioner I notice my hair gets softer and softer!

I also easily get knots in my hair however after using these products they have decreased and brushing it after I wash it has become easier!

This conditioner states that it has “essential vitamins and antioxidants for a shiny, smooth, frizz free finish!”– Which I can only agree to as my hair doesn’t look like such a hot mess when coming out of the shower as my hair is prone to frizz. However, these products helped to keep the frizz under control.

Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Dry Oil 

img_7356

I like applying this after I have brushed my hair, after having washed it; and I would only apply it to to ends of my hair.

It states to be a “nutrient rich treatment and styling” oil that helps nourish the hair for it to be stronger, thicker, smoother and shinier. It has a very light formula which helps to easily absorb and instantly strengthens and smooths the hair.

16357487_10210405109536713_380572181_o

 

As I said my hair looks shinier and feels smoother – therefore the dry oil must be working too! Also the ends of my hair do not feel dry or stressed, however they feel silky smooth and healthy!

Have you ever tried these products? Which one was your favourite?

If not, are you wanting to try them out?

Thank you so much for reading, I wish you all a lovely weekend!
