October Beauty Favourites
Hi guys, I thought I'd do an 'October beauty favorites' post this month, as I am an avid beauty junkie. I tried out the Elemis Skincare range & Alterna hair products which I have had phenomenal results with.
I'm going to 100% honest, I'm an Elemis Skincare virgin, but that's not to say I haven't heard good things. Over the last 4 weeks, I've been trying out there Dynamic Resurfacing Cream, their superfood face oil & their Embrace bath & shower oil. First of all everything smells divine, secondly I have noticed a considerable different to my skin. The range (personally) is perfect for nourishing, it's great for when the weather gets cold. If I'm feeling a bit dehydrated *coughhungovercough* I lather on the Superfood face oil at night as a treatment.
When I saw the word 'resurfacing' the Chantecaille Hibiscus Smoothing Mask sprung to mind, one of my favorite face masks which uses fruit
At £45 this incredibly dewy oil could pair as a serum & moisturizer, so you effectively kill two birds with one stone. I really noticed the benefits of this oil, by applying it before my foundation in the morning when I was tired, I don't think I've ever experienced anything like it, my makeup just glided on. It was magical.
This stuff apparently 'relaxes, soothes & calms' and do you know what, that's exactly what it does! I having been using this in the bath most nights and my skin feels like velvet when I get out. I am very much a bath person so this product is perfect for any bath lovers out there (and shower lovers!). I have previously used bath oils, but I find they can leave a thick residue on the skin afterward which I don't like, this product does not do that. It contains 15 essential oils which help soothe and calm the mind as well as destress you, gorgeous product!
Alterna Caviar Hair Range
You may have heard me talk about the brand called Alterna in my 'How to make your hair grow' YouTube video, if you haven't seen it yet- watch it here. I've said this before and I will say it again, I've never found such an amazing hair brand that actually works and has an incredible range of products. I discovered the brand when I was actually recommended the Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray from a friend at work who swore by it and said it's the best brand she had ever used!
My hair was so damaged by bleaching, extensions and stress that I decided to invest hundreds of pounds into this brand, I bought multiple products including the shine shampoo and conditioner, the scalp spray and many more to help repair my hair and restore it back to it's (nearly) virgin self.
