When it comes to hair, I do have to work hard on them. I was blessed with beautiful thick wavy hair until the time I took care of my hair myself, then came the time I had chemical treatments, straightening, and what not which left my hair and scalp in dire need of help. Since then I am very particular in choosing the products and treatments for my scalp and hair. I do moisturize my scalp and hair before and after the wash, something which not only moisturizes but also nourishes and repairs them. I have been using Christophe Robin Moisturizing Hair Oil with Lavender and Christophe Robin Moisturizing Hair Cream.
Christophe Robin Moisturizing Hair Oil with Lavender is an ultra-nourishing and protecting lavender oil treatment suitable for all hair types. The treatment contains a combination of oils which include lavender and palm oil which work to restore the hair’s elasticity leaving it feeling reinvigorated. Damaged hair will be restored to reveal hair that is more manageable, shiny and soft. Contains vitamin E to treat the scalp. Plant oils protect the density and shine of the hair color. Christophe Robin Lavender Oil treatment will protect your hair from the damage caused by the sea, sun and wind and other environmental elements that can damage hair.
I prefer to use this oil as a pre-shampoo treatment to nourish my hair and scalp. The lavender scent also makes it a relaxing ritual. When leaving it overnight, it is very soothing. It is very nourishing, increases softness and shine of the hair, helps prevent breakage, protects against damage caused by environment, restores hair. When using it after washing and drying hair, a little is all I need and gives moisture and shine to the hair plus provides UV rays protection. While using this for over four months almost, I still have almost half of the product left. My hair is soft, shiny, and healthy. The oil is solid at normal tempurature, I keep it under warm water for few moments and it liquifies.
Christophe Robin Moisturizing Hair Cream prevents hair from drying out, repairs split ends on hair damaged by color treatments, heat, over-processing, and restores the hair’s body and shine. This treatment, composed of 97.6% natural oils, helps to restore elasticity in hair fibers and prevents breakage. It also nourishes, moisturizes, and repairs the hair while protecting from sun, salt water, and chlorine. The non-greasy, non-sticky formula is enriched with moisturizing apricot kernel oil and extracts of sandalwood pulp to instantly penetrate into your hair — deeply hydrating it without weighing it down or altering the color. Complete with SPF 6 sun protection, it delivers beautiful shine and a subtle scent. It is formulated without parabens, sodium laureth sulfate, silicones, alcohol, ammonia, oxidants, colorants.
This is one of my favorite hair cream which I have been totally in love. I use it after every wash, either on my towel-dried hair and even after styling my hair, on the mid-lengths and ends. I take a pea-size of the product both on towel-dried and styled hair. It does not weigh down my dry medium fine wavy hair but my hair feels healthy, strong, and not dry. I do feel some shine and texture when using this. This is something I would always like to keep in my haircare routine. The cream does not feel greasy or oily but feels like it coats the hair without weighing it down.
On this National Lipstick Day, I am sharing the lip products I have been liking from Pur Cosmetics. I have been really liking the 4-in-1 Lip duo from Pur Cosmetics since I tried them and reviewed them here. For me, I am more inclined towards the products which do not dry my lips, give color, hydrate lips, and the staying power is good. The two new formulas I have been trying and liking are Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick and Pur Cosmetics 4-in-1 Lip Duo. The packaging of both is beautiful and the applicator works pretty well and makes the application easy.
Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick
Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick (CAD $29) has an innovative mousse texture that glides on with ease and coats lips in a rich and conditioning burst of color in a true matte finish. It is designed with color perfecting technology, the formula does not flake or dry lips and provides a smooth and flawless finish.
The formula of Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick is richly pigmented, does not cracks on the lips. It contains Pur Agave extract offers durable hydration. There are light diffusing properties that help fill lines to create a flawless finish. The formula is nice and comfortable to wear. The staying power is really good, and the formula is quite pigmented.
Pur 4-in-1 Lip Duo
Pur Cosmetics 4-in-1 Lip Duo is a dual-ended lipstick (CAD $29) with 4-in-1 benefits. The lip-duo contains a creamy, transfer-resistant, matte lip stain on one side and an ultra-nourishing lip oil treatment enriched with moisturizers like agave and lip-plumping goodness. I have linked my previous post on this above if you are interested to read more along with the Summer 2018 collection from the brand.
The formula gently plumps, volumizes appearance of lips, conditions, and hydrates them. The staying power is really good, even after a few hours of wear, there is still stain on my lips which I really like. Depending on my mood, I just keep the matte formula on and then either top it with the lip oil for a shine and extra moisture and other times, just the matte lip color is perfect.
Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick and Pur 4-in-1 Lip Duo are available at Shoppers Drug Mart and online at Beautyboutique.ca
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most awaited sales and you can expect all the good deals whether you are restocking your favorites or looking for something to try out and that too on a good deal. This year, there are three Beauty Exclusives I am going to recommend you to check from Charlotte Tilbury which I have been really enjoying and they are all on a really amazing deal worth checking out. I have been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks and the Wonderglow primer which I have reviewed in the past and are still on heavy rotation in my routine. These favorites are part of the sets exclusive to Nordstrom for the Anniversary sale plus the bonus is the palette which I am most excited about.
Charlotte Tilbury The Pretty Pink Lipstick Set
The Pretty Pink Lipstick Set (CAD $70, a value of CAD $104), as the name suggests, is a beautiful trio of lip products to help create the perfect pink pout. The set includes Lip Cheat Lipliner in best-selling shade Pillow Talk, Matte Revolution Lipstick in Nordstrom-exclusive Rose Kiss, and K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Nordstrom-exclusive Blushing Dream.
Matte Revolution Lipstick in Nordstrom-exclusive Rose Kiss is a soft, warm merlot with a natural matte finish
K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Nordstrom-exclusive Blushing Dream is a cool feminine rosebud with a satin finish
If you have not tried lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury, Matte Revolution Lipstick is a matte lipstick with a long-lasting, buildable, hydrating formula featuring 3D glow pigments to create the illusion of lit-from-within lips that appear wider and fuller. K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick is enriched with the antioxidant Lipstick Tree, brand’s secret ingredient that naturally protects lips from UV damage, leaving them cashmere-soft and irresistible. Lip Cheat Re-Size & Re-Shape Lip Liner is a rich, velvety liner with the power to reshape, resize and balance your lips. It enhances your lip shape for up to six hours thanks to a no-smudge, waterproof formula that won’t feather or transfer.
Charlotte Tilbury The Gift of Glowing Skin Set
The Gift of Glowing Skin Set (CAD $90, a value of CAD $153) is a set with two skincare products and one makeup product. It is a set featuring Charlotte Tilbury’s award-winning, celebrity-trusted skincare range that delivers everything you need for a red-carpet glow. The set includes Travel-size Charlotte’s Magic Cream Treat & Transform Moisturizer (0.5 oz.), Full-size Wonderglow Instant Soft Focus Beauty Flash, and Travel-size Magic Night Cream Instant Beauty Sleep in a Cream Elixir (0.5 oz.).
Charlotte’s Magic Cream Treat & Transform Moisturizer is a cream that contains Charlotte Tilbury’s secret mix of patented anti-aging, hydrating and youth-promoting ingredients that lift and transform tired skin in an instant, fighting the aging process on all fronts.
Wonderglow Instant Soft Focus Beauty Flash is a visionary hybrid primer that combines an anti-aging elixir and complexion-enhancing light diffusers to turn dull, dehydrated skin around in a flash.
Travel-size Magic Night Cream Instant Beauty Sleep in a Cream Elixir is an iconic moisturizer with ingredients to lift your complexion and intensely moisturize your skin, feeding skin overnight with a powerhouse of youth-boosting ingredients.
I have used deluxe sizes of the Magic Cream and the Magic Night Cream in the past but they did not last me long enough to share my thoughts but I will keep you posted when I try them again. The Wonderglow primer is a staple in my routine, gives a beautiful glow to the skin, skin looks very healthy and radiant. I have linked my detailed review here.
Charlotte Tilbury Pretty Glowing Skin Palette
Pretty Glowing Skin Palette (CAD $102, a value of CAD $153) is a palette featuring everything you need to look instantly healthy, glowing and pretty. That means there is a powder, contour, blush, and glow in one single palette. As with the Wonderglow I have mentioned above, the products I have used from Charlotte Tilbury have been staples due to the quality and performance, have recommended them earlier and will do again so. The blush, setting powder, bronzer, and highlighter from Charlotte Tilbury, the formulas are very fine and creamy, melts into the skin, and blends beautifully to give the most natural finish.
The palette includes:
– Airbrush Powder #2 – a warm powder with golden undertones and a soft velvety texture
– Blush in Pretty – a youthful rosy flush to illuminate any skin type
– Illuminating Glow (top left) – a soft champagne to highlight and illuminate
– Bronze and Contour – a neutral cocoa to tone, slim, sculpt and define
– Summer Blush – a bright coral with a soft sheen
– Highlighting Glow (bottom right) – opalescent with golden/pink undertone to layer and highlight
It is a very travel-friendly palette, there are two blushes, a bronzer, setting powder, and highlighter, and that too in shades that are suitable to most of the skin tones. I have medium tan skin tone and have been loving the shades on me. The pigment is overdo-friendly, means you can build it up easily and do not have to worry about overdoing any shade.
These are the exclusive sets for a great price to check out before they sold out at your nearest Nordstrom or their online site for their Anniversary Sale which ends August 5th.
