Natural ingredients

I think the concept of this company is amazing. I love that they use natural ingredients that are either organic or eco certificated.  All made from sustainable resources. Plus the products are made fresh in New York City.

Using natural ingredients is so important for numerous reasons. It benefits the environment and our own health. It is so important to be aware of what we using on our bodies.

How it works

Step one:

The consultation. This can be done either online or by booking in with a stylist located close to you. You will discuss your type of hair and determine the factors that may be harming your hair, such as the local climate, your diet, your exercise habits and styling habits.

Step two:

Preferences: Here you can discuss if you have a favorite fragrances or if you would rather no fragrance. You can also request particular ingredients, I opted to use all vegan ingredients for my products. Also, if you require more volume or shine ect

Step three:

Production: The lab will produce your hair products with fresh and natural ingredients accommodating your preferences.

Step four:

Your new customized hair products are delivered to your door. The box also contains a copy of your consultation. Listing what my hair needs, my hair goals, the routine and the ingredients in each product.

DIY Smoothing hair kit

So from traveling, color treating my hair and living in various climates my hair is, well not that lush. It is a mix of wavy, dry and frizzy! The only time my hair feels soft and smooth is after a trip to the hairdresser, which I cannot afford to do all the time. So I was happy to receive the Amazonliss home hair smoothing kit from Nautree professional.

Results

Did it work? Yes, after the treatment my hair felt hydrated, was smooth, shiny and straighter. However, I do have to point out that step 2: The Brazilian treatment had a strong chemical smell, and I only completed about 80% of this step as I had to stop using it. Step one – the shampoo actually smells really nice! And, step three the intensive mask works a treat.

I did see results, and this is much more affordable option to a hair saloon. I continue to use the shampoo and the intensive mask, as these products make my hair feel and look shiny and smooth.

The Escential co.

Vitamin C facial serum review

I was so happy to receive the vitamin C facial serum from the escential co to review. I have been looking for an anti aging serum to help combat any dark spots that are arising.  I love the use of vitamin C in this product, as it is an effective antioxidant. This serum is light weight, which I really appreciate, as it is smooth to apply and absorbs quickly into my skin. I like the packaging and the small bottle that the serum comes in, the perfect size to travel with.

I have been using this serum for a week now and I am already witnessing some great results! My skin feels a lot smoother and hydrated! I can see my youthful glow returning 🙂 This facial serum is a great anti-aging product as it acts as a light weight moisturizer that penetrates deep into the skin, keeping your skin hydrated and minimizing dark spots and wrinkles.

For best results, this serum can be used twice a day. Morning and night after cleansing and toning your face. You could also put a few drops and mix it  into your moisturizer and apply this way.  The scent is not strong, which is another great factor about this product.

I will continue to use this serum in my daily skin care routine, as I am loving the results that I seen so far. For more information, reviews and where you can buy this serum from please visit The Escential co. “Vitamin C Facial Serum”

MONAT ~ Review

Over the last couple of years I have been making the switch to use natural and cruelty free beauty products. So I was happy to be sent complimentary samples from Monat – a naturally based and cruelty free hair care company, to review. Their products are intended to nourish and promote hair growth, which is great! I love how Monat do not use any sulfates or parabens in their products, this is a big positive for me.

I was sent the following three samples to review.

  1. Revive Shampoo: The shampoo smells amazing and felt smooth to apply. I did notice a boost in my hairs volume and my hair felt soft and shiny afterwards. This was my favorite sample out of the three products.
  2. Replenish masque: The masque felt nice to apply and I liked the scent. I did notice that my hair felt smoother and I felt much more volume after use.
  3.  Rejuveniqe oil intensive: I was not the biggest fan of this oil intensive, perhaps it did not suit my hair texture. I did like the scent and the easy application, however my hair felt too oily and heavy afterwards, even with using a small amount.                                                                                                                                                             Overall, I was satisfied with the samples that I was given to try. I love that Monat use non-toxic ingredients.
