MoroccanOil has finally launched two most requested products – All In One Leave-In Conditioner and Volumizing Mist. With an amazing range of hair care and hair styling products, these two new additions to the brand’s permanent range are well worth the wait. Since the time I shared about my MoroccanOil stay-at-home hair care routine here, my hair has been behaving very well with the consistent use of the products. I have included the newest launches into my routine since last month and both are well worth the try.
MoroccanOil All In One Leave-In Conditioner is a multitasking spray that detangles, hydrates, and protects hair against breakage and thermal damage. It is a very lightweight milky formula and does not makes hair oily or greasy. The hair feels soft and nourished. A very fine spray comes out of the pump of the bottle and I spray 3-4 spritz on my towel-dried hair. I have even used it on my second-day hair to refresh them. When I leave my hair for air drying after spraying this leave-in conditioner, my hair is more manageable, look and feel soft and nourished.
When I heat style my hair, the result is the same nourished and soft hair but there is an extra layer of protection from the heat. My hair is silky and shiny without any residue. This is a new staple I have been enjoying very much for my hair, definitely a keeper. Even when staying at home, it is keeping my hair healthy and bouncy without weighing them down.
MoroccanOil Volumizing Mist is a weightless mist that builds hair volume and lifts hair for a look for fuller hair. On the contrary to the typical hair volumizing products, this new MoroccanOil Volumizing Mist keeps the hair soft and maintains the movement and hold from root to tip without making the hair stiff and crisp.
The hair looks full for over 2-3 days, with a light touch up in the mornings after getting out of bed. This volumizing spray is supposed to be used from root to ends and then heat styled. Overall, I am loving the results, there is no residue and it does not weigh down the hair.
Overall, I am really enjoying these newest launches from the brand and definitely recommend you to check them out. Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these products or if you have any questions regarding these. Moroccanoil products are available at Sephora Canada and Morroccanoil official website here.*Press samples
Guerlain has recently added two new products to the brands Abeille Royale skincare line and I could not be happier. I have had products from the Abeille Royale range in my skincare routine for the last few years and they are my absolute staples. Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil is the only face oil I have been using for my combination skin and it never breaks me out, makes my skin supple, youthful, and radiant. And now that we are in fall, and soon will be in winter, this oil and the Double R Serum are saviours for my skin, keeping it moisturized and cared. If you want to read my detailed thoughts on Abeille Royale Youth Water Oil (here), Double R Serum (here), Abeille Royale Day and Night Cream (here).
Guerlain Abeille Royale skincare line has been around 10 years now. With the advancement of science, technology, and innovation, it has been proven time and again how bee products repair skin. Guerlain’s Abeille Royale skincare line is celebrating 10 years of success and proof of the effectiveness of its products, thanks to the brand’s approach that pairs transparency across production channels with a commitment to the protection of biodiversity and the creation of a beautiful and sustainable world.
“For 10 years, Guerlain Research has focused on the exceptional repairing properties of honey and the science behind the skin repair mechanisms
that help combat the principle signs of ageing wrinkles and skin sagging.”
Now coming to the newest addition to Guerlain Abeille Royale skincare line – Cleansing Oil and Fortifying Lotion. Guerlain Abeille Royale Cleansing Oil gently removes makeup from the face, eyes, and lips while helping get rid of the skin impurities and pollutant particles. The cleansing oil has an ultra-fine texture with fresh and airy honeyed scents that transform on contact with water into a milky emulsion that rinses off easily, without leaving a greasy or oily residue. I apply it directly on dry skin and massage gently, then I add some water which turns the oil into a milky emulsion. Then I prefer using a washcloth to remove it, even rinsing with warm water works nicely. The skin feels fresh, supple, and clean. The cleansing oil is gentle for my sensitive eye area and even lips. My skin felt comfortable, no dry skin feels. I did not experience any irritation or breakouts while using this cleansing oil. If it is the evening, I prefer using a second cleanser after this cleansing oil, just to make sure my face is clean before applying my nightly skincare products.
Guerlain Abeille Royale Fortifying Lotion with Royal Jelly is launched just in time for fall and winter when my skin needs extra care and nourishment. The Fortifying Lotion is a fresh aqueous light liquid lotion that has been the first step in my skincare routine after cleansing that helps prepare the skin for the next skincare products like the serum, moisturizer or even before massaging the skin. It rebalances the skin, hydrates it. The results are supple and radiant skin. It has the same fresh, airy honeyed scent as the Cleansing oil. “As the first essential step in the Abeille Royale ritual, the Fortifying Lotion combines microencapsulated Royal Jelly and BlackBee Repair technology to prepare and strengthen the skin.” Since I started using this lotion in my skincare routine, day and night – taking few drops on the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, pat on my skin, I feel my skin is smoother, hydrated, and radiant.
Guerlain’s Exclusive Royal Jelly is a very interesting ingredient in the Abeille Royale line. Royal Jelly is the most precious substance from the beehive, capable of transforming an ordinary bee into a queen with exceptional vitality. It is produced in very small quantities in Guerlain’s exclusive sourcing in France. The Royal Jelly is a natural source of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and vitamins. It helps with the skin’s ability to withstand the effects of stress and pollution.
In keeping with the rest of the Abeille Royal line, the new bottles for Cleansing Oil and Fortifying Lotion has been designed to ensure a limited environmental impact. Apart from these amazing new launches, I also had an opportunity to attend the virtual launch event with the brands International Makeup Artist and Skincare Expert Maxime Poulin. He shared some amazing tips and techniques, massage techniques – a few of them are shared in the video here.
I am really enjoying these two new additions to my skincare routine. Abeille Royale skincare line definitely is my most loved and recommended anti-ageing range. Guerlain Beauty Products and Fragrances are available at Guerlain Boutiques, Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, and Holt Renfrew.*Press samples
Ulili Moroccan Scents – a brand new to me, a brand that came out of love of the natural and historical heritage of Morocco, a brand with a rich history and creative look that gives a touch of elegance and uniqueness. The first thing that excited me to check the brand out was the very unique scents and overall packaging, anything that is related to a culture, a heritage, or feelings – I am all in. Ulili was named after the fertile land in Morocco which had a small tree that adorned the plain with gorgeous pink and white roses. The brand was founded as a result of a meeting between perfumer Marianne Nawrocki and Omar Benjelloun, a lover of Moroccan culture. Marianne Nawrocki is the nose behind all the fragrances of the brand. I have the Candle Tazarine and Diffuser in Oum Rabie on rotation and happy to share my thoughts here.
Ulili Moroccan Scents Candle Tazarine is a very fresh, elegant floral scent. Tazarine means fig tree in the Berber language. It evokes a summer breeze covered by fragrances of a fig tree and a field of ripe wheat, ready for harvest. The notes of the scent are Top (Fig tree), Medium (Ylang ylang, Tuberose), Base (sandalwood, Musk).
The Candles are made with natural vegetable and beeswax harvested from the foothills of the Anti Atlas Mountains in southern Morocco and are designed to continuously fill any space with the scents of the region while reminding of it’s rich and sensual heritage. The wicks of the candle are lead-free and made of natural cotton.
The screen-printed characters are inspired by characters of the traditional Spanish card game. Each piece of the ceramic candle undergoes several oven firings and hand manipulations for the lacquering and screenprinting. The crackles on the chalices are obtained by a Japanese technique ‘Roku’ used in pottery. I have the candle in medium size and it’s burn time is around 25 hours.
Ulili Moroccan Scents Diffuser Oum Rabie is a scent inspired by a walk through the blooming orange trees at the mouth of the Oum Rabie. Oum Rabie is the name of a long river in Morocco. The name means Mother of Spring. The formulation of citrus, aromatic notes, and fresh spices is inspired by the first rays of spring sunshine. The notes of the scent are Top (Basil, Green Mandarin, Petit grain), Middle (Neroli, Cardamom, Bay Leaves), and Base (Orange Blossom).
Ulili’s perfumes are formulated with natural molecules and the highest quality essential oils and ingredients. This diffuser is curated and handcrafted by hand in the brand’s workshop in Morocco. The packaging of the diffuser includes the diffuser, 5 black reed sticks and a 100ml refill which has a diffusing time of over 6 weeks.
I am really impressed by how beautiful and unique the scents are, and how the authenticity of the brand is visible from just the look. Ulili Moroccan Scents are available at ShopKalosophie.com.*Press samples
