This new “magic in a bottle” product was launched in the salon at work last month and has been flying off the shelves! I’ve just gotten round to testing it out after Graham our lovely rep from Pureology dropped me off my own to try out!

My Verdict:
It goes on damp hair before styling. Spray a few spritz, comb through and go about your normal styling routine. It smells nice, perhaps a bit too floral/fruity for some. The smell kinda takes me back to my early teens reminding me of the scents of The Body Shop, like Dewberry!!!

It feels really good in the hair and not like you have any product at all. The smell is nice not overly strong , it fades a to a subtle scent when your hair is dry. When my hair is dry this blonde fine hair of mine isn’t fluffy and it feels silky and looks shiny with no static! So far so good! I’ve only used it a couple of times so will need to use over a longer period to see the full results such as the Antifade Complex®

Summary:
I think this is a genius product and as all Pureology products the quality of ingredients are high and the results speak for themselves! All Pureology ingredients are 100% Vegan.

This will definitely become a holiday “must have” for me this year as it’s an all in one multi tasking hair Beautifier you can’t go wrong with this thrown in your beach bag along with your SPF and Tangle Teezer!

At £19 I think it’s a brilliant find, purchase yours here

PUREOLOGY® Strength Cure – serious colour care!

Woking in a salon I’m lucky to get the odd freebie from time to time. Last week we were all treated to a Pureology gift bag set for our efforts in selling retail. If I’m honest the gift bag itself isn’t really my thing, but the actual product inside…well let’s just say I’m in LOVE!

IMG_2937.JPGThe smell is gorgeous the colour is a bright pinkish colour. The smallest amount foams up a treat
(I know shampoo doesn’t have to foam to clean the hair but it’s oh so satisfying when it does) it contains antifade complex and treats micro scarred or damaged colour treated hair (my hair is all of the above, so I may of found my match)

IMG_7360.JPGHere’s a clever idea, the lid for the shampoo is at the top of the bottle and the lid for the conditioner is at the bottom of the bottle. So although the bottles are the same shape/colour they are easy to work out while your in the shower and not quite awake yet!

IMG_7359.JPGImpressively these products are 100% vegan and sulphate free. Here’s the science bit…

The shampoo; Gives your hair strength, reduces breakage and brings softness to every hair on your head. It will strengthen the fibre in your hair and remove dull residue.
Featuring Pureology’s Antifadecomplex and Asta-Repair, the Strength Cure rich foam cleanser controls the look of frizz, whilst helping to repair and strengthen micro damaged zones.

The conditioner; Working to detangle, strengthen, and condition it is the ideal product to look after your hair. With its opulent Pureology Antifadecomplex and Asta-repair formula, the conditioning product helps to improve hair’s shine and softness, whilst protecting colour radiance between every wash.
Aiming to improve body, smoothness, and suppleness the conditioner helps repair the micro damaged zones by enveloping strands in a smooth coating of Strength Cure conditioner.

The Verdict
I’m totally sold and would definitely purchase these products, though they are rich and seem like they will last forever they do not weigh down my fine straight over processed blonde hair. They do the opposite and give my hair fullness and bounce with a shine.

My Conclusion
I’ve been using these for one week and yes ok I’ve had a few inches cut off my hair which helps, but I can definitely feel and see an improvement with the condition of my hair which is often ironed flat each morning to remove my crash helmet kinks before I start work.

Anyone else tried any products from the fabulous pureology range?

Barielle® PRO Advanced Cuticle Renewal Oil

I spotted this cuticle oil by Barielle while browsing the beauty section in TK Maxx recently. I needed a new cuticle oil as my CND solar oil had finished and my cuticles were looking quite dry and unkept. I couldn’t resist the discounted price tag, this was a first for me as I’ve never purchased beauty from this store before. I’ve forgotten the exact amount but it was something like £2.99 instead of $12 (yes US dollars)!

IMG_6780.JPGIt’s a professional PRO product so I was hoping it’s as good as it’s title suggests.

IMG_6783.JPGI’ve been applying this at night (when I remember to) and I gotta say the results are amazing and live up to all my expectations. My cuticles don’t just look healthy but feel soft and nourished. This oil had instantly changed the appearance of my nails for the better.

IMG_6781.JPGIt soaks in and doesn’t feel too “oily” the smell reminds my of fruit pastel ice lollies! A bit random but pleasant all the same. The smell isn’t strong and wears off after a few minutes of application. I normally gently massage into each cuticle. The appearance of my nourished cuticles is long lasting!

IMG_6993-0.JPGIt’s currently on my bedside table so I don’t forget to apply regular in these winter months. This oil heals dry cuticles, prevents nail breakage, builds strong, healthy nails
and even works on nail polish!

The verdict: I am really happy with the quality, consistency and the performance of this product and would definitely repurchase again even though I do love the almond smell of CND’s solar oil.

What cuticle oil’s or cream’s do you use?
