My Current Haircare Routine

I've just recently settled into a new haircare routine and have been putting it into practice for the last few weeks now. Now I'm happy and confident in what products I use and how I use them, I thought I would let you all into my routine.

Once a week I'll apply Vita Coco Coconut Oil to my hair and leave it in as a mask for a few hours before I wash my hair.

In terms of washing my hair, I use the KMS California Color Vitality Blonde Shampoo for my balayage coloured hair or I use the Aussie Miracle Shine Shampoo. When conditioning my hair, I use either the Aussie Miracle Shine Conditioner or the MoroccanOil Hydrating Conditioner.

Once I have clean hair, I'll put L'Oreal Elnett Crème de Mousse all through my hair, and then I'll apply a mist of Lee Stafford Original Heat Protection Shine Mist before I go ahead and dry my hair using my Nicky Clarke Hairdryer.

After I've dried my hair, I'll either leave it as it is, or I'll straighten or curl my hair using my Nicky Clarke Straighteners, and just finish off my styled hair by applying L'Oreal Elnett Supreme Hold Hairspray. 

And that's what I use for my Haircare Routine!

Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette Review

I really find it hard to motivate myself to clean my makeup brushes on a daily basis; it always feels like such a big effort to get the brushes as clean as I would like them.

I've been trying to get hold of the Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette for a while and I hadn't been able to find it until the other day when I very quickly purchased it after I saw it!

The Palette is made from silicone and has a strap on the back where you can put your hand through enabling you to easily clean your brushes while holding the palette. There are three different types of ridges inside the palette which go from being little to big and are different shapes which get really deep into the bristles of your brushes to give a deep cleanse.

When cleaning my brushes, I put some baby shampoo inside the palette and got to work cleaning my brushes. I was amazed at how quickly the dirt from my makeup brushes came out after using the palette. It took absolutely no effort at all and I managed to make a chore that I really dislike, so much more quicker!

I'm really impressed with this little tool which has very quickly become my best friend. I used to just clean my makeup brushes using my hands, but this palette just makes the whole process much more thorough, quick and easy. For £12.99 it's totally worth the price, and I highly recommend that you all purchase this!

Products I’ll Always Repurchase

The first product on my list of products I'll always re-purchase is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. Out of all the foundations that I have tried I always go back to this one because I find it so lightweight on my skin, and it's not cakey which is so important to me. And the smell is just amazing and fresh in my own personal opinion.

Secondly on my list is the Benefit Roller Lash mascara, since I first tried it at the beginning of last year I absolutely fell in love with it because it makes my lashes look so long and much more fuller. It just works the most wonderful wonders on me and I wouldn't be without it!

I also adore the Collection Liquid Liner, I physically cannot do my makeup without doing a eyeliner flick on my eyes, and this product does it perfectly. I love the applicator because I find it so easy to control and apply the product neatly on my eyes.

The Soap and Glory Hand Food is a staple for me, because as hand creams go it smells delicious and doesn't feel greasy on your hands after applying.

For the shower/ bath  the Soap and Glory Clean On Me, Sugar Crush and Rich and Foamous Body Washes are my absolute favourites to use. They all smell gorgeous in different ways and feel so moisturising on my skin when I use them. They all seem like a real luxury to use!

A scent that I will always re-purchase is CKIN2U. I first discovered this fragrance in an airport in 2010 and I've never looked back since. I love other fragrances of course, but this perfume is great because it is so versatile and is brilliant for a daytime scent.
