Hair Care Haul

The summer months seem to have taken their toll on my weathered locks so it’s now in serious need of some tlc! Over the last weeks I spotted some bargains in Boots and Superdrug mainly, and just couldn’t help myself. Although I was mainly on the lookout for hair care products I stumbled across some styling products too (if you can class dry shampoo as a styling product, definitely a bare necessity for me!). My (mini) haul consisted of:
Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo
Aussie Miracle Shine Conditioner 
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Shine
Aussie Miracle Recharge spray 
TRESemme Breakage Defence Restructuring Treatment Masque
Aussie Dual Personality Coloured Hair Protection and Shine Serum
Pantene Pro V Expert Collection Advanced Keratin Repair Mask

COLAB dry shampoo in New York
L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

Samy Fat Hair 0 Calories Amplifying Mist
Samy Fat Hair 0 Calories Amplifying Crème


VO5 Casual Control Dry Texture Spray
Urban Fudge - Crisp pear and sweet vanilla dry shampoo
Lee Stafford Shine head spray shine

And finally .. the L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Summer Saviour Nourishing Mask.

I’m really looking forward to trying out the Extraordinary Oil as I’ve heard wonderful things and the Urban Fudge dry shampoo, as it’s not really seen this brand around but my housemate swears by it so I thought I’d give it a go. I’m a big fan of Aussie products too, so will enjoy getting reacquainted with the 3 minute miracle as I haven’t used it in years!

Have you tried any of these products? Would love to know what you thought!

Birchbox // July 2015

So so late with this one, but couldn't not share the contents of my lovely Birchbox!  July's 'Make a Splash' theme Birchbox (which actually came in a bag) was the summer holiday prep edition. With four varieties in the mix: orange for St Tropez, pink for Ibiza, Green for Hydra and yellow for Somerset, I received the lovely pink one!

My 'Ibiza' bag contained: the Balance Me Congested Skin Serum, Unani Aloe Vera Gel, POP Beauty Eyeshadow trio in Peach Parfait, the Benefit Dream Screen, Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Luminiser Gel, and the Lifestyle item this month was a Pura Vida Headband in Aqua.

Overall thoughts: I really like the super handy clear bag, especially love it because it's pink (and coincidentally I've not long returned from a lovely holiday to Ibiza myself. Overall I think it was a good mix of products, particularly the luminiser gel (I'm really loving highlighter at the moment)and the Balance Me serum, which are my favourites from this box.
