Natural Oils for Hair Growth and Hydration

A few years ago, I didn't really like my natural curly hair and I was keep straightening them all-the-time. Can you imagine the result? Of course, you can and you are right! Damaged and dull hair. That was the time that I turned to natural solutions. Below, I'll tell you about my favourite natural oils that did a great job in my hair.
Laurel Oil I decided to start with my favourite one. Laurel oil is rich in vitamin A,E and fatty acids and therefore it is known for its moisturizing effects. Laurel oil rejuvenates the hair and makes it shiny and smooth. It is also an amazing solution If you want to make your hair longer in no time! Apply it from the roots till the ends of your hair and leave it for at least 30 minutes. If you can, leave it overnight. It will do an even more amazing job.
Coconut Oil Let's say, that the coconut is a treasure! Just think about the coconut milk (do you remember the Coconut smoothie), the coconut water and of course the coconut oil, which is high…

Yes to Cucumbers Colour Protection Shampoo Review

Last month I've told you that I was trying for the first time the "Yes to Cucumbers" shampoo.
As I mentioned in the post about Macadamia Rejuvenating Shampoo Review, I am using only shampoos without sulfates because they do not damage your hair as the shampoos with sulfates do. So, after the Macadamia Rejuvenating Shampoo, I was looking for something that was going to give me more quantity and also at a really good price. Yes to cucumber was a match, as 500 ml of product for 6,70 Euro seemed like the real deal!  This shampoo promises that it will keep your hair nourished and your colour protected. It has cucumber extract and sunflower oil. It has a strong sense of cucumber, something that I really liked. It reminded me something like summer holidays with great food. But what about the results? Honestly, I didn't like them and I really wanted to..You will need a huge amount of product to make foam in your hair and you'll have to wash them two or three times to re…

I will start this post by simply saying that this palette is one of the most pigmented palettes that you'll ever ever ever see. I got this palette as a Christmas present from my bf and I couldn't wait to try it out. So let's see the amazing packaging in triangular shape:
You can tell why it is called "Holographic Palette"!😋 At the back of the package Kat Von D is explaining to us what "alchemy" means. As she mentions, Al-che-my is a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation or combination.  A palette full of mystery and magic..Shall we take a look about what is happening inside this palette?


You can find there 4 highlighters: Opal which is a baby pink highlighter.Amethyst which is a lavender/violet highlighter.Saphyre which is a silver blue highlighter.Emerald which is a green highlighter. Check the swatches down below (not by order):
Can you tell now why I am so obsessed with the pigmentation of this palette?!  You can use these four shade…

Gift Ideas For Him

Last week, I was brainstorming to figure out what present should I buy for my boyfriend. I bet that, a lot of you have a tough time when it comes to this subject. I mean..they are boys..it is really difficult to find something interesting, useful and exciting at the same time. So, today I'm here to share with you my ideas for the perfect gift for him.
Gadgets. Technology is something that boys really like. I think that technological products to them, is something like make-up for us. Bet that he would really like a new wireless mouse, a new keyboard, a drone, a VR, a smart watch, a tablet, a power bank etc.. You can find in this section a variety of gifts depending on your budget. Shoes. A pair of nice shoes is something that your significant other will really appreciate. Find a comfy and stylish pair of shoes and suprise him. If he does any sport, it would be even more great to buy shoes for the sport that he is practising. If he plays tennis, buy him tennis shoes. If he plays ba…

Maybelline Instant Anti-Age Concealer Review

It is the second time that I am buying the Maybelline Instant Anti-Age concealer (about 8,00 Euro) and, thank God, at the right shade this time. I have pale skin, so the shade "Light" that I first bought was a little bit dark for me (ironic If you consider the name of the shade, isn't it? 😋). This time I have purchased the #22 Beige Rose shade and I am really happy with the matching.
The Instant Anti-Age concealer is actually a big hit for Maybelline as it is considered to be one of the best drugstore concealers on the market and I can confirm that. The product has a medium coverage, but If you want a better coverage, the problem can be solved with just one more layer. Personally, I just apply one layer and I immediately see great results. It doesn't crease into the under-eye lines, it looks natural and it highlights beautifully this area. If you don't have a great need for full coverage and you need something light and quick, you can use this product without a…

Dr.Organic Manuka Honey Face Scrub Review

I was scrubing my face with the Manuka Honey Face Scrub while I was thinking about what should I write today. Well, the answer was right under my nose! Why not writing about this amazing face scrub that I was using the exact moment?! Dr.Organic's products are certified with BioActiv, which means that they are formulated by using organically certified & natural extracts. Pretty cool right? More specifically, the Manuka Honey Face Scrub (7,72 Euro) contains a minimum of 70% organic ingredients.
I can tell you that I am in love with this product! Because Clarisonic does all the work when it comes to my skin care, I do not use this scrub really often but when I do, this product totally blows my mind. With ingredients such as manuka honey, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil etc, it has an amazing smell and it leaves the skin hydrated, extremely soft and very clean. I would like to let you know that till now, only two products have managed to leave my face feeling so sof…
