Empties: #2 (Haircare)

1. Head & Shoulders Eucalyptus 

I received this sample from PinchMe (overview coming soon), and loved it. I don't know what it is about the smell but it smelt like candy to me. Surprisingly I got about 5 uses from this tiny sample so I was really able to test it out. If you have a sensitive scalp I don't think this'll be good for you. While it doesn't tingle I would still suggest you stay away. If you have a problem with your hair falling out in the shower I recommend this and the Head & Shoulders anti breakage shampoo. While I still have hair fallout it is about 3/4 less than it used to. 

Repurchase: Already have 

2. Organic Care Nourish Shampoo 

This is a nice shampoo. It smells like coconut and macadamia and it did a good job of cleaning my hair. I used to repurchase this all the time for about a year but I decided to try other products which worked out a lot better for me so unfortunately I won't repurchase it but I loved it while I used it.  

Repurchase: No

3. Organic Care Nourish Conditioner

Once again good a conditioner but I've moved onto something else for now, we'll see. This was in my last empties, click here. Honestly it's not super hydrating but it was nice. 

Repurchase: Not sure 

4. Head & Shoulders anti-breakage shampoo
I also enjoyed this, it had a similar effect on my hair as the eucalyptus in terms of minimising hair breakage (which is why I bought it). But I preferred the smell of the other.

Repurchase: Maybe

5. Girlz Only Dry Shampoo
I really enjoy these. They don't make my hair white but they will if you spray too much. There are so many scents that I think there would be one to suit most people's taste. It does a good job at absorbing the oil. The only thing negative I have to say is that 2 of these stop working after ONE use. Something happened with the nozzle/spray top (not sure what it's called). I used it once and the product wouldn't stop spraying so I put the lid on and next time I opened it liquid came out (so be WARNED). But they're only $2 so it's okay but if it happens too often I will stop purchasing it. 

Hazy days (Light pink/purple) - light, fruity scent
Dawn 'til Dusk (Teal) -  strong kind of manly smell
Brighter pink  - stronger floral scent 

Sorry about the bad descriptions

Repurchase: Yes

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!
I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don…

Review: Dettol Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Today I'll be doing a review on a product concerning personal hygiene. We all know that in winter people are more susceptible to the flu and colds, especially if you haven't had a flu shot (like me...). So in order to lower chances of catching a cold, hand hygiene is vital. Because a lot of the time hands are doing all the work germs can spread very fast, therefore to prevent the spread of germs, soap is one of the easiest ways to ensure you're not spreading germs to family and friends. 

I had the opportunity to try a Dettol product new to the market. Dettol has a number of versions of their new hand washes so there will most likely be one for you. They include; Delight with Honey & Apricot, Replenish with Shea Butter & Rose Water and of course revitalise with Raspberry and Pomegranate. 

Dettol's Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate has the most beautiful fruity scent. Honestly is smells EXACTLY like raspberry and pomegranate, it is d…

Review: Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum and Nourishing Night Cream

So firstly my skin type is dry/normal. I'm prone to hormonal breakouts. Every time I get a pimple it scars whether or not I've popped it (gross I know). So my main issue are my scars. But like I mentioned I do have somewhat dry skin and I really do feel like these have helped with my dry patches and preventing my skin from flaking. 

1. Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum 
30ml $24

"This super concentrated skin hydrating serum has a light formulation, which is easy to apply and works deep into the skin. The serum strengthens the skin barrier in just two weeks improving its tolerance for the long term. Specially formulated to offer an immediate comforting and calming effect. Apply after cleansing and before moisturising both morning and night. Clinically proven to reveal healthier skin in just two weeks."

Overall I think this is a really nice serum, but honestly I'm not really a serum girl and this product hasn't converted me. I feel like it's an unnecessary step. But if…
