THE FERRARI OF HAIR STRAIGHTENERS

Hello!

Can I just start by saying by how amazing the GHD ECLIPSE is? I got this beauty as a gift, but by doing a quick search on Google, it retails for about $299 AUD? It's pretty expensive for a hair straightener, but the in-built mechanics of the hair straightener itself really proves to be worth investing in for your hair.

From my knowledge, it uses a tri-zone technology plate which automatically adjusts its heat seating for your convenience when you're straightening your hair. Its plates are aimed for precision and heats up real quick!

Upon opening the package, the new sexy sleek black straightener definitely caught my eye, and I have to say hands down - it's probably the best straightener I have ever owned.
With this, you only need to press one button - to indicate that it's warming up and when it's ready you hear a cool sound which allows us to start straightening!

With straightening, my hair became sleek and shiny. There was no dry bits or frizzy ends, as I did my hair in parts to make it easier to straighten the frizz out.
I definitely enjoyed how quick it took for me to straighten my hair, a good 3-4 minutes and I was done! You can simply turn off by pressing the button and then it will quickly sound off. To store the product, it comes with a heat guard which is ideal as it doesn't burn or lead to any unsafe environment!
The product seems quite durable and of high quality! The box itself is sturdy and I enjoyed the packaging itself. (This is where I actually store the GHD product, to protect it from getting scratched.)

The plates itself do become hot, but that's ok because when you grip all around, it's made to not get you burnt!
Easy for making curls and straighten, there are so many ways you can use this awesome hair straightener!
This product comes in black and white in the Eclipse range, however the black is definitely suited for me!

POSITIVES: 

  • Leaves your hair shiny and sleek. 
  • Durable look and comes with heat guard. 
  • Fast heating time about 5-10 seconds! 
  • Faster to style hair, for hair straightened, took me about 5 minutes. 
  • Black and sleek looking hair straightener
  • Comes with tri-zone technology plates which means it adjusts heat automatically. 
  • Turns off by itself if left on idle for about 5-10 minutes, (Another great safety feature.) 

NEGATIVES: 

  • Pricey $$ but does it's job :)

Ciao!

REVIEW: REDWIN SORBOLENE MOISTURIZER

Hi all, 

For those suffering from dry, chappy skin due to the unpredictable weather conditions, REDWIN SORBOLENE is the way to go! 

Named as Australia's best and number one Sorbolene products, it works to create a barrier which locks in moisture in your skin for a good period of time! Made to heal your skin overnight and the results are effective if used daily and at night. The best thing about this product is that it doesn't have fragrance, no harsh chemicals present in the product and is safe to use!

Available at your local supermarkets e.g Woolworths or Coles, I would prefer using Redwin over the Vaseline ranges. 

As for the consistency of the product, there is no greasy formula which is so important when it comes to moisturizing creams for me! 

Overall, I definitely enjoyed using this cream for a period as it keeps my skin soft and smooth. As opposed to other brands, this is not greasy or doesn't leave an uncomfortable feeling after applying. Truly a great buy!

POSITIVES: 
  • Thick consistency which is not greasy
  • Perfect for those with dry skin.
  • Comes in an easy pump bottle. 
  • Comes in many sizes, 100ml, 500ml, 1L and 2L

NEGATIVES: 

  • Suited for those with dry skin only, not oily skin. 

REVIEW: VEET COLD WAX STRIPS

Hi beauties,  

I decided to try these VEET COLD WAX STRIPS, normally I don't opt for the wax option. In this case, the packaging is what caught my eye. WHY NOT? 

This wax product contains 20 wax strips and 4 fresh wipes. I would only say this is only effective for those with short and thin hair on their legs/arms/etc. It's not ideal for those with thick hair as it won't remove all hair effectively. Stick to the shaver. 

It smells like flowers when you put the wax strips on, and it's not messy compared to the wax tub and stick. This is best for those who want a quick fix to their legs and since it's so easy to convenient to carry these strips around, it is ideal for bags/purses. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE:

At Priceline or supermarket stocks this item, click the below link for more details about pricing, information: 

https://www.priceline.com.au/toiletries/womens-essentials/waxing-hair-removal-and-bleach/sensitive-cold-wax-strips-20.0-pack 

POSITIVES: 

  • Long lasting, you can get smooth legs for at least 2 weeks. 
  • By regular using wax strips, you can make your hair regrow thinner, making it easier to remove later. 
  • Best used for short hair up to 2mm. 
  • Contains Aloe Vera so it contains heaps of moisturizing benefits. 


NEGATIVES 

  • Not made for coarse and thick hair. 
  • Can be sticky if excess wax is not fully removed. 
  • Although you can use it cold, it's more effective if you heat up the strip by a tad. 


Overall I would rate this product a 3.5/5. Just because shaving works and I'm just used to it. These strips would be perfect for on the go - or if I was in a rush and had no time.

NEW POST! BIODERMA-SENSIBIO H2O AKA (CREALINE H20 SOLUTION)


Happy New Year! It has been quite of a holiday break - but I am back! 

Been testing heaps of products over the new year and I will be posting new products that I have reviewed gradually on this blog. This is an exciting new year and I am so excited to get the ball rolling for more reviews!!!!

First, I would like to start with an amazing cleanser I have used.... Bioderma-Sensibio H2O!

This is a great product for those looking for a good facial cleaner and wanting a more gentle substance on their skin. It claims to be one of the first and only micellar that's compatible with skin. I would say this is such a unique product as it markets itself as a water cleanser, fragrance-free and also offers a gentle status for those who have dry or sensitive skin. This safe cleanser is driven to clean make-up and remove impurities immediately after cleansing. It's supposedly good for cleansing dry skin and improving complexion. After a week using this product I felt my skin was gentle and moisturised after using! 

I would best use this product overnight given the greasy formula! 


POSITIVES: 

  • Gentle on skin, great for those with dry or sensitive skin.
  • Fragrance-free
  • Gentle formula. 
  • Contains nutrients made for repairing dry skin. 
  • Sensibio formula contains antioxidants - made to improve complexion. 

NEGATIVES: 


  • Can be a bit greasy under make-up. 
  • Doesn't rid surface capillaries immediately. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE:
  • Priceline (Around Australia)
