I’ve completely fallen in love with Goe Oil by Jao Brand. It’s a 100% natural semi-solid all over body oil that turns to a liquid when slightly warmed between your hands, it smells gorgeous as it is lightly scented with Monoi Tiare from Tahiti.

What’s in it? It contains 28 plant, fruit, flower oils & butters as follows…

Jojoba Butter, Sunflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Avocado Butter, Grape Seed Butter, Grape Seed Oil, Cocoa Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Soy Lecithin, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Mango Butter, Cupuacu Butter, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Hemp Seed Oil, Kukuinut Oil, Chamomile Oil, Beeswax, Calendula Oil, Essential Oils, Tocopherol, Vitamin E, Acetate, Rosemary Extra

It’s a multi-tasking product you can use from head to toe, their tagline on their packaging is “HANDS. HAIR. BODY & SOUL” which couldn’t be more true.

Verdict It keeps my skin soft and hydrated all day and is also great for spot applying on dry patches. Some use it as an intensive hair mask which I think will suit very course/curly or frizzy hair which soaks up moisture like a sponge. I tend to use a very tiny amount on dry hair to tame my fly-aways.

Summary I love this product and already have my second tube ready to go. It costs £35 so it’s not cheap however well worth every penny and a very little goes a long long way, you can buy your here

A customer I recommended it to at work came back two weeks later to personally thank me as she had received so many compliments on the overall look of her skin and being asked “what are you wearing” due to the soft scent. She also has long luscious ringlet naturally curly hair and this has defined her curls making her hair look healthier and shiny. This feedback made my day!

Jao Brand have been kind enough to send me their lip-balm and skin cream to try out what a lucky girl I am! keep posted for my review of them soon.

Thank you for reading, let me know if you’ve tried this oil or any similar as I’d love to hear from you.

Wella SP LUXE OIL 30ml – A Reconstructive Elixir For Hair

I was so happy when my lovely friends at Wella Uk sent me this little bottle of hair magic to try! It smells deliciously sweet and reminds me of summer. The consistency is light and non-greasy, perfect for my fine one length straight bob which is coloured and tends to become static at times due to lack of moisture…

IMG_8327.JPGI apply two small pumps (for my short hair it’s plenty) in the palm of my hands, rub together then apply evenly to my pre-washed damp hair from mid-length to ends taking care not to touch the roots. Then blow dry/style as normal and voilà…

My hair is easier to manage, it looks luxuriously healthy and shiny without looking like I’ve got product in it. My hair feels natural to touch (which I like) and not oily, it doesn’t weigh my hair down.

This product is simply perfect for my hair type and the smell is very subtle when it’s in your hair. You will experience a little hint of it when you swish your hair!
(LOVE IT)

IMG_8326.JPGHere’s the science bit:

Enriched with a blend of 3 precious and luxurious oils, Luxe Oil leaves the hair up to 10 times smoother with triple the amount of Keratin protection than a regular conditioning treatment.

Argan Oil, often referred to as Èliquid goldÉ, is renowned for its nutritive, cosmetic and medicinal qualities on hair, Almond Oil offers superior hydrating and lightweight properties to the hair and Jojoba Oil works wonders on fragile and dry ends. Using a reconstructive Transform Technology, Luxe Oil benefits the hair from the inside out whilst protecting the natural Keratin.

The small molecules of Luxe OilÉs nourishing formula penetrate deeply into the hair to lock in moisture and strengthen from the inner cuticle, whilst the oil forms a protective layer around each individual hair to protect against damage, repairing every strand so even damaged hair is noticeably smoother.

This multi-purpose oil elixir offers 8 amazing uses as it smoothes, softens, protects, defines, illuminates, repairs and reconditions the hair whilst preparing it for colour treatments or styling.

I receive lots of compliments on how soft and shiny my hair is when I’ve applied Luxe Oil Keratin boost. It can also be applied to dry hair if preferred.

Summary
I’ve enjoyed the results of this product it has delivered all of its promises instantly on first application. I will definitely repurchase this product it’s available in 100ml, you can buy at hair salons stocking Wella Professional or online here
