Products I’m loving this month.

 

bonbon-girls-product-review-lush

It has been a long time since I have done a product review post, or just talked about product’s that I think are really beneficial in general. I thought I would take some time out to talk about the products I have been absolutely loving this month! Looking after our skin and hair is so important and it’s actually really fun too when you find products that work really well. Plus, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging and I love giving any product that catches my eye more attention then necessary! (I’m sure most girl’s are in the same boat, right?)

I also have a bit of a novel below on caring for your hair, so if your interested in learning a little more about looking after your hair, or if you are struggling with breakage etc, give it a read over and please feel free to ask me any questions too!

Yummy! Lush goodness <3

I thought I would try out the Space Girl Bath Bomb this month. why? Well, look at it! It’s freakin’ gorgeous and it smell’s divine. I was instantly drawn to the pretty colour and glitter so I just had to pick one up. I don’t actually have a bath which is a bit sad, but luckily I got to use this up at my mum’s place! A bath is such a rare occurrence for me, so it’s such a treat and must be done right when it does happen.

I’m also a huge fan of the Ultrabland cleanser, but I have heard such good things about Angels on Bare Skin and I really wanted to try it out. It’s not their best seller for nothing right? In the store, I wasn’t too convinced by the smell or texture of the product. It’s not horrible, it’s just not what I thought it would be. Fortunately, this cleanser works wonders and it’s super cleansing without being too drying. I have super oily skin and I found this works really well for me. I actually grew to really like the texture of it too, the graininess gives you a really nice “cleansed” feel.

MOR Marshmallow Body Wash and Body Milk.  There are some products that are just done SO RIGHT and this range is totally in that category. Everything from the gorgeous packaging, the smell, the texture… just yummy yummy yummy! I have loved the Marshmallow hand cream for quite some time now, so it’s no surprise that the Body wash and Milk are just as stunning. I mean, who doesn’t want to smell like a marshmallow! I am sure this stuff will be a long term addiction! You can pick it up at Redcurrent. Seriously, go get it. Like now! I promise you will fall in love, and then we can talk about how amazing it is 😛

vanilla-caramel-candle-taha

I think this is possibly the best smell EVER. It’s the Vanilla Caramel candle from Glasshouse. (You know the candle that’s burning at like, every Peter Alexander?) It’s quite strong so it’s not to everyone’s taste, but I’m 100% into this candle. It’s literally burning right now. I’m blissfully taking in deep whiffs of it every 5 minutes, and getting a little bit of joy each time. I had to take a photo of it’s pretty unused state, the day of purchase because I had to use it, like asap. The candle itself is quite massive, so although they are a little pricey they last a really long time, unless your constantly burning it like I tend to do…. (If your not sure if you like the smell and just want to try it out they also sell little mini ones) I picked this one up at Redcurrent , but Peter Alexander obviously stocks them as well.

organic-colour-system-haircare-favourite

I have so many Organic Colour Systems products from my win back in March! I’m still working my way through them all, but enjoying every minute of it of course. I chose to feature these three because they are good basics to work with. The Aqua Boost Leave-In Conditioner is amazing for detangling, not that I have an issue with that (short hair bonus) but it definitely gives a nice softness to the hair without feeling weighed down. Also, if your hair is quite fine this is a lot lighter then using a normal conditioner, so you could just skip that step altogether when using this.

I also have the Thermal2Twenty, which is a thermal protector (so important!!) Never use any heat on your hair without a thermal protector guys. Straighteners and hairdryers can kill your hair, they cause serious damage and breakage to your hair if your not looking after it properly (trust me! I probably still have pictures somewhere of all my breakage…) So I now know a thing or two about really caring for your hair and making sure it’s in it’s best state. Anyway, this is a awesome thermal protector, it protects your hair, the smell is really minimal so it won’t overpower any perfume etc you may be wearing and super easy to apply. Just spray and comb through evenly before drying and straightening 🙂

Lastly, I have the Finale which is a firm hold hairspray, its smells so lovely! Like bubblegum, or candy or something yummy like that. It’s super nourishing, it contains natural proteins and conditioners, to keep nurturing your hair throughout the day. Even though it says it’s a firm hold hairspray, it’s definitely not like concrete. It’s really flexible so hair looks naturally beautiful and keeps the shape throughout the day!

I guess one of my biggest recommendations when it comes to hair is invest in a good shampoo and conditioner! If you’re like me and bleach your hair especially! Regular treatments are also really important. If you want strong healthy locks- use good quality hair care!

Again, any questions, just let me know in the comments below, I will be more than happy to help out!  Or if you have any products you would like me to review, or you just want to talk about them, I would love to know! I’m always up for trying out new products and giving you guys my honest thoughts on them.

    Have you tried any of the Lush hair products?

    • No, I haven’t! I’ve always just got all my hair care from the salon….I will try those actually. Any recommendations? x

        I like the Daddy-O shampoo, its a really pretty purple colour and smells amazing. You can normally get testers of things so you don’t have to commit to buying it in case you don’t like it 🙂

    Hey Antoinette,
    really enjoyed this post! Just wondering, where do you get the organic hair care products from? Also what range of shampoos and conditioners do you recommend if not supermarket ones? Loving following your blog! keep it up!

    • Hey, thanks! I know you can buy them from a few different salons in Auckland, there is a salon in Grey Lynn that sells it, called Amica. I love this range. It smells so good and has been really gentle on my hair as well! Also Sukin is another a nice range that sells in Farmers, so it’s a little easier to find. It’s not 100% organic but it is a beautiful range and really affordable!
