NEW HAIRCARE DISCOVERIES FEATURING OGX HAIR PRODUCTS - NOW AVAILABLE AT PRICELINE STORES


Looking for a new haircare brand to try out? I checked out the OGX hair care range to see what they're all about.

Here are some haircare products from the OGX range, that you may be interested in learning more about. They're available at Priceline stores nationally, otherwise check out https://aus.ogxbeauty.com/ for more information. 


Quenching Coconut Curls - Shampoo & Conditioner 

Look to achieve softer feeling hair and fight frizz with this tropical blend containing coconut oil, sweet honey and citrus oil. Overall, I felt this range helped to leave my locks feeling softer and healthier once again. It definitely adds a whole heap of moisture and shine for my hair, but I feel that this range would most certainly benefit those with curls.


Strength & Body - Bamboo Fiber-full - 
Shampoo & Conditioner 

This haircare range looks to specifically plump your ends with its bamboo fibers and soy proteins, which leaves you with more voluminous looking hair. It smells super exotic and fresh which took me a little getting used to at first. So if you're after thicker and fuller looking hair, then definitely check out the Bamboo Fiber-full by OGX range to see if it works for you. 


Thick & Full - Biotin & Collagen 
- Shampoo & Conditioner 

For really thick and full looking hair, then there's always the Biotin & Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner range by OGX. It includes an exclusive blend with Vitamin B7 biotin, collagen and hydrolyzed wheat protein, which seeps into every strand, creating the appearance of fuller and thicker looking hair. The scent smells absolutely amazing and I simply cannot get enough of this particular range. I'm already noticing thicker and fuller looking hair which is great for my hair type as it's prone to hair breakages.

DOUBLE CLEANSING SKIN BENEFITS FEAT. NATURAL INSTINCT'S SKIN REFINING CLEANSING OIL


Look to up the ante of achieving squeaky clean skin by double cleansing. 

I know that some of you may be thinking that you simply cannot be bothered with cleansing, again. But if you're wanting to step up your game in looking to achieve a flawless and clearer skin complexion, then double cleansing may be the way to go. 

Double cleansing is by using your facial cleanser, twice. This could be a gel, foam, cream or oil cleanser. For me, I personally like to use an oil cleanser to double cleanse as the oil looks to dislodge any dirt and impurities on your skin, plus it's more gentle on the skin. 

When it comes to cleansing, look to start with dry hands and dry skin. Don't look to wet the face as yet because you're essentially working the oil on your skin's surface as the very first step. I checked out the Anti-Oxidant Facial Skin Refining Cleansing Oil, by Natural Instinct RRP $21.99. It combines 6 nourishing oils that's suitable for oily, dry and combination skin. The cleansing oil is very lightweight and it doesn't strip your natural oils which is great. Plus, it does not clog the pores which is even better. After using this particular product on a daily basis, I've found that my skin just feels so much smoother and softer. It's such a great essential for removing makeup especially when it comes to stubborn eyeliner and mascara. 

Look to apply 2 pumps of cleansing oil onto dry face. Warm this onto the palm of your hands before looking to apply this onto your face. Massage into the skin with a little of warm water, where you'll start to see the oil turn into a light milky texture. Rinse off and then look to repeat the whole steps again in order to achieve double cleansing. 

After cleansing, you'll start to see a natural glowing sheen to your skin complexion, where it just feels softer and smoother.

KOREAN SKINCARE PRODUCTS: THE FACE SHOP LAUNCHES THE YEHWADAM PURE BRIGHTENING LINE


The Face Shop recently launched their Yehwadam Pure Brightening Line that uses a secret brightening cosmetic formula from Oriental beauty....

Recently I looked to try out the Yehwadam Pure Brightening Serum by The Face Shop, which essentially leaves your complexion looking brighter and clearer. If there's one thing that Koreans love, that is to achieve clearer, smoother and glowing looking skin. This is ideal for those who experience sun spots, freckles, blemishes...and maybe wanting a solution that can help to solve dull and dry looking skin. 

The Yehwadam Pure Brightening Serum is considered as a herbal brightening anti-ageing product that restores the healthy glow back to your skin. For the serum, there are 7 powerful ingredients which help to brighten your complexion including: Pearl, White ginseng, Poria cocos Wolf, Atractyloides macrocephala Root, Honeysuckle Flower, Cnidium officinale Root, and Paeonia albiflora Root. All you need to know is that with all of these ingredients combined, it really lood

Furthermore, I found that this serum amazingly cleared up my breakouts by leaving my skin feeling cleaner and fresher which is amazing. I've been looking for a solution to reduce my blemishes and so far by using this serum, it has definitely helped to clear up my skin which I'm really happy about. There are natural medicinal herbs contained in the serum which supposedly works to reduce skin irritations - this is perfect for those with sensitive and gentle type of skin. The Brightening serum also works to moisturise dull and dry looking skin which is perfect for those who experience blotchy skin patches from time to time. 

Overall, I loved the natural and healthy luminosity this serum has delivered for my skin. I feel that with continued use, it can really look to improve my sun spot damage over time. If you're after a really effective skin brightening serum, then I'd definitely highly recommend the Yehwadam Pure Brightening serum. The product comes in a pump sized 45ml bottle and you only need about a pea-sized amount. A little amount sure goes a long way! 

The Yehwadam Pure Brightening Serum is available at your nearest THE FACE SHOP, which falls under their Yehwadam Pure Brightening Line.
