John Frieda Frizz Ease Original 6 Effects Serum

John Frieda Frizz Ease Original 6 Effects Serum - £4.59*

My daily hair care routine isn't complete without an effective serum that smooths and hydrates my locks. With my hair being coloured and bleached, it's prone to frizziness and can often feel dry and lifeless. Conditioning isn't always enough to treat my hair so I always follow up with the John Frieda Frizz Ease Original 6 Effects Serum, developed to protect and tame the hair.

I apply this daily on to towel dry hair, focusing at the ends where it is most coarse, and style as desired. This serum locks in moisture after each wash, giving a maintained shine and soft appearance. This serum is also fantastic at keeping fly always under control and leaving up do's sleek. A little goes a long way with this product and usually lasts me a good month, definitely a must have!

Garnier Pure Active Matcha Detox Mask #PureResults

Garnier Pure Active Matcha Detox Mask *PR sample

It's January and of course that can only mean one thing - detox, detox, detox! It's the perfect time to give your skin a much needed deep clean and Garnier has introduced an amazing new treatment guaranteed to revive and rejuvenate your face. 

This month I have been trailing the Pure Active Matcha Detox mask, developed to unclog blocked pores in just 10 minutes. Made with Matcha tea extract and Kaolin clay, this mask cleanses the skin and rids off excess oils and pollution residue. Simply apply evenly across your face, let it set for the recommended time and then rinse to reveal a matte and smooth complexion. The product itself has a delicate consistency that doesn't weigh down the skin and smells delightfully fresh.

Admittedly I have found that my skin has broken out ever so slightly, which would be expected from a deep cleansing treatment but needless to say I have seen an improvement. Working and living in a city environment does take it's toll on my skin and this mask is just what I need to keep blackheads and shine at bay!

Share your #PureResults!

2018 Beauty and Lifestyle Resolutions


It's that time again, the New Year is here and I'm sure we've all made resolutions of some scale. In addition to my own personal goals and aspirations for 2018, I have given some thought to what I'd like to change in my beauty and lifestyle regimes.

A resolution that's on my list every year but not one I follow through. I plan to commit to drinking 6-8 glasses of water each day and on nights out I want to make sure I have water between alcoholic beverages. When I have increased my water intake I do notice an improvement in my skin and I generally feel much better for it. 

2. Take better care of my skin
My skincare routine went a little off the rails towards the end of last year. I got lazy with cleansing and toning, which lead to endless breakouts and a dull complexion. I also neglected my moisturiser, both face and body so I really want to get back into the habit of keeping my skin hydrated each day.

3. Maintain healthy locks
I find that I complain about the condition of my hair without actually doing anything about it. This year I want to have regular trims and occasional treatments to keep it looking and feeling healthy for longer.

4. No diet but better choices
This isn't a priority for me however there is room for improvement. I do currently keep fit and I wouldn't say I over indulge but I need to reevaluate my decisions when it comes to food. Cutting down carbs and sugar is where I hope to start as well as introducing portion control.

5. Less is more
I tend to stress unnecessarily about my style, I'm certainly not a trend setter and I don't always follow the fashion crowd but I have come to realise it's more about the essentials. Now and then I go through my wardrobe and I'll clear out a couple of items at a time that I no longer get wear out of. Scaling down to staple pieces actually broadens outfits to choose from without the headache of 'what should I wear?'.

Have you set yourself any resolutions? I'd love to hear them!
