GARNIER ULTIMATE BLENDS HONEY TREASURES SHAMPOO- £3.89
I started using this product probably about a month ago, and it’s now without a doubt the best shampoo that I’ve ever used. I used to use the Herbal Essences, Hello Hydration, however found that if I used it for more than a couple of weeks at a time, I was left with greasy residue in my hair. However I’ve found that the Honey Treasures to be perfect for my hair, which is coloured. I’ve found that I can leave it for longer without washing, and it still looks clean. It gives hair an extremely shiny and healthy look, and it contains ingredients which strengthen your hair and help stop breakage, which is perfect for, if like me, you use a lot of heat on your hair. Not only does it leave your hair looking great, it also leaves your hair smelling of sweet honey, which I love! The only thing I have to criticise of Garnier’s Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures, is the conditioner, as although it smells great, it doesn’t seem to go far, and doesn’t provide as much moisture for my hair as I would like.
GARNIER SKIN NATURALS SOFT ESSENTIALS 24HR NOURISHING DAY CREAM- £4.39
I recently purchased this product as it was on offer in Boots. I had been using a Nivea moisturiser, however found that on my combination skin, it just made it feel sticky, and caused me to break out. I was going through a patch of having dry skin, which was most likely due to the heatwave we had last month in the UK, and within a week of using this product my skin was so much happier. It felt refreshed, smooth, hydrated, and wasn’t causing me to break out. It also smells amazing, like most of Garnier’s products, which is probably why they’re my favourite beauty brand, as you’ll be able to tell from the rest of this article.
SALON CHIC PROFESSIONAL MOROCCAN ARGON OIL HEAT DEFENCE SPRAY- £2.95
I bought this product last year, as I’d found my hair to have a lot of breakage due to my regular use of a curling iron, and was seeking something to help stop any further damage. I found this product in Bodycare, and was drawn to it due to its reasonable price, and the fact it contains Argon Oil, which is supposed to be extremely healthy for your hair. It can be used on all hair types, and is really good in that it works just as well on dry and wet hair. It doesn’t leave a sticky residue, and doesn’t make my hair feel clogged up like I’ve found a lo of heat defence sprays do. This product lasts a long time, as I bought this before I started my first year of uni which was around ten months ago now, and I’ve only just ran out.
GARNIER SUMMER BODY LOTION LIGHT SUN-KISSED- £4.00
This product is perfect for if you’re incredibly pale and would like a sun kissed glow without looking like an orange. It’s also ideal if you want to top up a tan. The scent is apricot, which gives the product a nice summery feel. It leaves your skin feeling fully hydrated and glowing which is a bonus, however the only thing I have found with this product is that it doesn’t last very long. Despite this, I’ve been using the product for a long time, and have found it to be the best self tanning lotion.
MARC JACOBS DAISY DREAM- £51.50
I got this product as a birthday present, and LOVE it! My favourite thing about it is probably the bottle, which is so gorgeous, and looks lovely on my dressing table. The scent is very floral, however manages to not be too sweet, which is definitely a good thing. It smells of jasmine and blue wisteria, and is quite a romantic, and youthful scent. Each application lasts a long time as well, meaning you don’t have to apply the perfume multiple times a day. Although it’s quite expensive, it’s definitely worth the money, and when I run out, I will most certainly be buying a bottle of this again.
MISS SPORTY SOCLEAR ANTI-SPOT COVERSTICK- £1.99
Okay so this is a cheap product I bought recently due to its low price, and so I wasn’t expecting much from it. However I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find it does what it says it does. It’s also long-lasting, and easily blends into your stick without it looking as if you have concealer on. I’ve had this product for around three months, and despite using it everyday, it looks as if I’ve only just bought it.
