Marc Anthony - Hydrating Coconut Oil & Shea Butter Range

Hi guys! Happy Friday! Today I am reviewing some products by Marc Anthony, in particular the Hydrating Coconut Oil & Shea Butter Shampoo, Conditioner and Conditioning Treatment (RRP $16.99 and $6.99 respectively, available from Target). I was pleasantly surprised how nice these products made my hair feel. After the first use, my hair was super soft, shiny and smelled amazing! It lathers up really nicely, cleans the hair effectively and has made my hair look healthier - in just 4 weeks! I love how thick and creamy the conditioner is - it just locks in so much moisture! Unfortunately I was not impressed with the conditioning treatment. I guess it's hard to tell how good a product is with only using it once - but my hair didn't feel any better than if I were to use just the shampoo and conditioner alone. It really didn't stand out for me at all. I will definitely be trying the other ranges as this one is outstanding! Have any of you tried this brand before?

L'Oreal Collection Exclusive The Reds

Hi guys! How are you? Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been so busy lately! I have some exciting news to share with you soon - but for now I want to show you the limited edition L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Color Riche 'Reds' collection. I'm missing 1 red nail polish (the Doutzen shade). The lipsticks are far more interesting in shades than the nail polishes and the quality is really great on the lipsticks! I had a few issues with the nail polishes; the nail colours didn't really match their corresponding lipstick shade very well and the brushes are cut unevenly which made it hard to paint a perfect shape around the cuticle. The lipsticks retail for $21.95 and the nail polish retail for $7.95 and are available from Priceline. Here's a look at the shades!

Doutzen Shade Number 8 Pure Fire - A bright red-orange

Eva Shade Number 9 Pure Brick - A dark orange-red.

Freida Shade Number 19 Pure Amaranthe - A stunning bright pinky-red. This lipstick is my absolute favourite colour from the red collection.

The corresponding nail polish does not do the lipstick colour justice at all. The nail polish is more like a Christmas shimmery red.

 Jlo Shade Number 11 Pure Rouge - A very true classic red.

 Blake Shade Number 15 Pure Ruby - A slightly darker true red.

Laetitia Shade Number 14 Pure Garnet - A deep mulberry colour.

Thanks a lot for reading and I hope you find this post interesting!

June Favourites!

Hi guys!! Today I have my June favourites to share with you! Lets jump right in to it!

KEVIN.MURPHY Balancing Wash (RRP $34.95, available online at adorebeauty) - This daily shampoo is perfect for me. I exercise at least 5 days a week and worry about my hair being constantly washed but I have found a shampoo gentle enough for daily use. This does a really great job at gently but effectively cleaning your hair, and it's boyfriend approved!

Charles Worthington Mineral Hair Rescue Masque (RRP $15.99, available exclusively from Priceline) - I LOVE this hair masque and am so sad that I'm all out of it. It is an amazing treatment for your hair where you actually notice a difference after the first use, and it is the first hair product I've ever used (shampoo's and conditioners included) that actually leaves a scent on my hair! This is a very good thing as I used to get jealous of other girls with beautiful smelling hair (kinda sounds creepy I guess) but now I'm one of them! I'm off to buy a back up!!

Molton Brown - Ylang Ylang Single Wick Candle (RRP $85.00, available from David Jones) - This candle smells absolutely amazing burning or just sitting in your room. I'm in love with Molton Brown candles - they are definitely worth the splurge!

L'Oreal - Miss Manga Mega Volume Mascara in the shade Black (RRP $21.95, available from Priceline) - This mascara made waves throughout the blogging/youtuber world and I can see why. It has a super flexible brush with a tapered end that coats your lashes really well and makes it easy to get right into the inner corner and on the lower lashes too. I really loved the way it made my eyes look!

Lanolips 101 Ointment in Apple (RRP $13.95, available exclusively from Mecca Maxima) - I actually hadn't used my original lanolips 101 ointment in so long so was so happy to rekindle my love again but this time in an amazing apple flavour! It contains added Vitamin E and is perfect for chapped lips and dry cuticles (my 2 most used areas).

Thanks for reading! See you next time.
