CocoaLocks Hair Shake

I promised you to share more about Cocoa Locks. They were kind enough to send me one of their best sellers – Chocolate Hair Shakes 1-month program. On their website you can find the Chocolate Hair Shake Program and the Hot Chocolate Hair Program. I personally prefer the shake since I am not such a huge fan of hot chocolates.

First, I was very sceptical about the hair shakes and the result I may get. But I decided to try it anyway because I have been struggling with my hair for so long so I was pretty desperate.

What Cocoa Locks promises?

“Our Chocolate Hair Shake formula is a daily remedy to repair, rebuild, grow and strengthen your hair. It is infused with essential hair vitamins & minerals to ensure that you can achieve that celebrity shine with just one milkshake a day!Cocoa Locks delicious Hair Shake formula is vegetarian, gluten free and cruelty free and only 26 Kcal per serving. So, you can get all the benefits without the guilt.”

What does the Chocolate Shake contain?

Biotin is the main ingredient of the shakes. It promotes the growth of the hair and it also improves its condition. The Chocolate Hair Shakes also contain zinc and selenium. They help the hair repair and also prevents the hair from thinning and loss.

My experience

I was very strict so I had 1 Chocolate Shake every day for 1 month. The instructions are very easy to follow:

2 teaspoons (7g) of the Chocolate Hair Shake + 140ml of milk = Daily Dose Chocolate Hair Shake

My results

Cocoa Locks Hair Shake in a nutshell:

+ very delicious – it tastes like chocolate;

+ only 26 Kcal per shake;

+ longer hair;

+ stronger nails;

it says all you need is cold milk but actually you better do it with warm/hot milk.

P.S: If you decide to purchase your Cocoa Locks Milkshake or Hot Chocolate Program, you can look for a discount code on their IG or on the website to save some $$$

Aussie Miracle Review

Each one of us is facing different issues with her hair. Either you have a thin hair with no-volume, or your hair is damaged and coloured, I am sure you have tried a thousands of products and you are still trying to find the best one for you. Out there are so many different brands and types of hair products. During my hair journey I tried quite a lot of them too – some were good, others weren’t. Today I decided to review 2 hair products  of the super famous Australian brand Aussie. Both of them I find pretty amazing! And they are currently part of my hair routine.

There is more life than hair but it is a good place to start

The Aussie Philosophy

So here they are:

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment

image

First of course I use a shampoo and then it is turn to Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment like a conditioner – 3 minute repairing therapy. I leave it on my hair for a couple of minutes, and then of course rinse it. And let me be honest, at first I was very sceptical about it and my first impression wasn’t so good. But after the second time I use it I really liked it and now I can say  it is actually very good. The texture is nice, not heavy and the colour and the smell are like a bubble gum (pink and sweet).

It contains Australian Jojoba Seed Oil and Aloe Vera which will smooth and control frizz, as in the same time will replenish moisture and will leave your hair luscious and shiny.

Ingredients:

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment makes my hair more textured and I feel like it is in better conditions,  much stronger than before. I choose the Frizz Remedy because my hair is very soft, thin and it is very frizzy. Definitely super happy with it! I want to try as well some of the others 3 Minute Miracle Treatments especially the damaged hair treatment!

Aussie 3 Miracle Oil

image

After I get out of the shower and my hair is still wet before I try to maintain it I use Aussie 3 Miracle Oil. And let me tell you it is a REAL MIRACLE! You can also use it before shampooing kinda like a mask, or on dry hair just to make it shinier.

The texture is not greasy and it doesn’t make your hair heavy and oily. It contains Australian Macadamia Nut Oil, Jojoba-seed Oil and Avocado Oil. Smells like a candy.

Ingredients:

It leaves my hair smoother and shiner. Either you style your hair or you let it air dry ( Aussie believes in the air-dry-hair) it will have the smooth and silky finish.

Aussie  products are all very affordable but not so easy to get your hands on…at least in Europe. I found mine during my trip to Czech Republic, but for instance in Bulgaria, Aussie  products are difficult to find.

But you can always find them onlinehttp://aussiehair.com/en-gb . If you are trying to find your hair`s  best match, you can take a look at the website and you can choose by a huge range of products. Aussie have different collections which are suitable for different hair types. Aussie website will help you find the closest store to you or as well order the products online.

P.S: Let me know which one is your favorite Aussie product!

По време на пътуването ми до Чехия, закупих два продукта на автралийската марка Aussie – балсам / терапия и олио за краища.

“Животът не е само коса, но тя е добър старт“

Aussie 

Aussie 3 Минутна терапия (3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment)

Аз използвам този продукт след шампоана, намазвам обилно по краищата на косата и го оставам за около 5-6 минути, след което изплаквам. Доволна съм, но не мога да кажа, че е любимият ми балсам за коса. Консистенцията му не е мн тежка, не омазнява и не оставя косата “на клечки”. Освен това мирише прекрасно! Съдържа австралийско масло от жожоба и алое вера, които хидратират, не утежняват косата и правят я по-мека и гладка. Подробно може да видите състава на снимките по-горе.

Вторият продукт е Aussie 3 Магически Масла (3 Miracle Oil)

На все още влажна коса, отново по краищата, тъй като моите са доста сухи, нанасям този продукт. Трите масла, които съдържа са от макадамия, жожоба и авокадо. Благодарение на тях, спомага за по-лесното разресване, предотвратявайки накъсването на краищата. Не е прекалено мазен, не отежнява косъма, а само хидратира. Мирише много приятно, също както балсама.

Продуктите на Aussie  са на достъпни цени, но в България, поне за момента не се предлагат в дрогерийните магазини. Но може да бъдат поръчани онлайн: Официален сайт.

P.S: Използвали ли сте продукти на Aussie? Кои са любимците ви в грижата за косата?

Summer Beauty Essentials

summer_xoxogabrielle

Skin Protection

It is so important to put a sunscreen on your body and especially on your face. For your body you can choose a little bit lower protection but for your face I suggest you better go 50 SPF or up. It will prevent wrinkles and over pigmentation. It will give you a nice soft skin and your tan will be even. There are so many products out there – from lotions to sprays, without smell or with that beachy smell and little shimmery pieces.

In the moment I use Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen SPF 30 for my body. It is a very hydrating and absorbs very fast, also doesn’t have that sticky effect. It smells so good and it has little shimmery pieces which makes your skin looks very shiny and fresh. For my face I use a baby sunscreen SPF 50.

Hydration

Even you have been wearing a sunscreen you still need some body lotion to hydrate after being under the sun. Lately I have been in love with Yves Rocher`s Body Lotion with Coconut. It is very affordable and it smells like heaven! Also it is really nice texture and absorbs really good. For my face I use La Roche Posay Oil Free Mattifying Moisturizer and it is very good choice for oily skin.

Blotting Paper

Like I said my skin is a little bit oily so when I am wearing make up it becomes really shinny (and it is not in a good way!) so blotting paper helps you to get rid of the oils and doesn’t mess up your make up. I use NYX Tea Tree Blotting Paper and I definitely recommend it!

Hair Care

You definitely don’t want to leave your hair without any protection. So you can choose some hair spray with SPF in it. And don’t forget conditioner and masks so it can recover from the sun. Lately my favourite hair product is Batiste Dry Shampoo. I touch my hair all the time and my roots get oily very fast. So the dry shampoo for me is  a must! It doesn’t leave any colour on your hair like some other products do. It smells good and it is very affordable.

Scrub

Don’t forget to exfoliate your skin. It will make your skin softer and it will remove dead skins, making you feel fresher and cleaner. If you use self-tanning products or you are going to the beach either way exfoliating will make your tan looking better and more even. I like to use exfoliating gloves or body scrub for my body. And gentle exfoliating scrub for my face. There are a lot of brands and they all work the same way.

Lip Balms

Lips are also important in your skin care routine. I love Burt`s Bees Lip Balms. They are made all by natural ingredients. Constantly making your lips hydrated and soft. They are coming with different kind of smell and are very affordable. My favourite is Vanilla Bean!
