1. Redken Smooth Down Butter Treat: I bought this when my hair was extremely damaged from heat styling. I'd blow dry it every other day and use straighteners every day. I guess that's the reason why I don't even use heat on my hair anymore, it was bad! I think this treatment really helped my hair, but it's nothing amazing, to be honest. Stay away from this if you have fine hair, it is insanely thick, almost like a paste, and it will weigh your hair down! I wouldn't repurchase purely because there are better options for my hair as it is at the moment, but if you have dry, damaged hair, go for it, you will love it!
2. Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel: I cannot sing enough praises for this cleanser, it is brilliant! It comes in gel form and it turns in to an oil when you rub it on to your skin. It feels so nice and luxurious! It gets every trace of make up off, even waterproof mascara (it's safe to use around the eyes)! I didn't repurchase it because I wanted to try new things and I kind of regret it now, as I'm a bit disappointed with the Lancôme cleanse I got! Specially now for they winter months, the fact that this turns into an oil on the skin is great to avoid that dryness. It comes off really well so you don't have to worry about any residue on your skin!
3. Clinique Superdefense SPF 25 Moisturizer: this is a brilliant moisturizer.this was a (considerable) sample size I got and it lasted so long! I loved it so much I purchased the full size one, you can find my review here. Another product that is great for the colder months, as it is quite thick, but is absorbed brilliantly by your skin!
4. Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution: this is one of those products that takes ages to work but I can guarantee, it does work! It's annoying to have to wait, ut if you wait for it, results will come. I have a big problem with the pigmentation my spots leave behind. I've been religiously using this since April and it has improved/cleared lots of my little spots. Unfortunately my spots don't stop popping, so this product is one I think I'll probably use for a long, long time! I recently repurchased it! It was £30 in April and it ow costs £36 for the same amount. It's annoying, but worth it!
5. Avene Thermal Water spray: I prefer to apply moisturizer to slightly dampened skin, as I feel my skin absorbs it better. I like to give my skin a spritz of thermal water, as it has a higher concentration of minerals and other properties that are good for our skin than tap water. This is, of course, only one of the uses of thermal water. You can use it after waxing to calm the skin down, after you finish your make up to avoid the cakes finish (the mist is really fine and doesn't ruin the make up!), to give the skin that boost of hydration... Endless options!
6. Philip Kingsley Elasticizer: I read really good things about this on Hanne's and Celina's blogs. It was the first pre shampoo treatment I ever heard about. You apply it to wet hair and leave it on with a shower cap for as long as you can. This leaves you hair feeling absolutely gorgeous! I don't know if you have is expression, but in Brazil we would say it leaves your hair feeling "buttery", not that it's oily, but it feels so soft that it is almost "melting"! hehe I got this 75ml size with a kit I bought, which came with a shampoo and conditioner, but I don't know if I'd purchase the full size as it's so blooming expensive!
