June Favourites

I am in love with this season, it is just my favourite time of the year. The sun is shinning, the skin gets darker, the hair gets lighter.   Pure happiness is to sit somewhere watching the sunset and the sea. During this time of the year I don’t use a lot of makeup, but I definitely try to stick to a good skincare and hair routine. I tried a couple of new products and I really loved those ones:

Face Wash

I bought those two products – L`oreal Skin Expert Pure Clay Illuminating  Cleansing Gel and Garnier Fresh Clarifying Wash with Green Tea. I was really excited to try the first one because I have been using the clay face mask from the same brand. I love both of those face washes and I use them everyday. If you want to read more about them let me know in the comment section down below.

Take Care of Your Hair 

I got the chance to try out Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, and I really like them. They make my hair very soft, smooth and light. I like the smell and the texture isn’t oily or heavy. I want to repurchase the real size products.

Cute Nails

I got a couple of new nail polishes since now I decided to take a small break from the gel-nail polishes. I really like those coral/ watermelon colours.

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle2

When I was back at home I got the new Grazia Bulgaria which came with a little Eye Cream – Golden Tears from Mastic SPA. I have read a lot of different reviews saying that this one isn’t the original product. Anyway I use it for the last two – three weeks, and I am pretty happy with it, so it is one of my favourites for May.

Hair Crystal Oil – Bio Pharma

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle3

The new – old favourite Argan Oil. I have used this product before and I really like it. I put it on my hair after shower and it makes it easy to comb and to manage, and of course last but not least it smells amazing.

Sleek Make Up Matte Me

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle4

This is my super extra favourite product for the last month. I have seen this all over Instagram and I was curious to try it out. I got Sleek Make Up Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream during my stay in Malta. The shade I chose is Bitter Sweet but I would love to try all of them as well as the eyeshadow palettes.

Liz Earle Nourishing Botanical Body Cream

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle5

Liz Earle is a British cosmetics brand, they have a huge range of body, hair and make up products. Good quality and the packaging is nice. This body lotion hydrates and soothes the skin, it also smells very good.

Schwarzkopf Got2B Straightening Spray 

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle6

I got this hair spray by Schwarzkopf a long time ago but I started using it a little bit more often lately. It is for heat protection and it helps you to keep your hair straight for a little bit longer. I really like it because it makes my hair thicker and it looks stronger.

Book Sometimes I lie – Alice Feeney

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle7

I got this book Sometimes I Lie from the airport in Malta. I really like it so far and I am still reading it. It tells the story of a woman who is in a coma. To be honest it got me because of the cover and the tittle 🙂 Well.. I guess we all lie sometimes…

P.S:  Have you tried some of those products? Share with me your current favourites, I would love to try them out!

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?
