bumble & bumble Crème de Coco Masque

Posted on: Saturday, 22 February 2014


If there was ever a thorough trial, this was it. As you can see I'm nearly out of bumble and bumble's Crème de Coco Masque, and I have to say I really haven't fallen for this product. I like to think hair masques have an easy job with my hair: it might be long, but it's not frizzy, coarse, thick or otherwise all that unmanageable. I have fantastic results with products like Macadamia's Deep Repair Masque where my hair is left soft as silk for days after treating it, so I had high hopes for bumble and bumble's offering. Not only is it rated highly by members of the notoriously hard to please MakeUpAlley, it also claims to be ideal for dry and dull hair (check) and able to transform hair with moisture, softness and silliness (all things my mop could do with). 

Orla Kiely Sage & Cassis Scented Candle

Though I’ve never dedicated a full blog post to Orla Kiely’s beautiful candles, you may have caught one burning in the background of this post—not that that would have given any idea as to just how obsessed I am with them—all of them. I was sold on them before I’d even had a sniff thanks to the beautiful glass jar designs and this one, Sage and Cassis, is one of my favourites.

Décleor Aroma Epil Post-Wax Cream

It's TMI time, and by that I mean I'm going to be talking about hair. On my face. Or more accurately, on my upper lip. We all have it, and actually mine's not bad, in that it's blonde, fine and not visible to the naked eye. What spurred me to first get my upper lip waxed was whilst preparing to photograph this post and the up-close lip swatches. I think we've all had that moment where we've photographed a make-up look or an up-close lip swatch and been horrified at just how detailed cameras can be!
