This post is just so you can get to know me a little better and hopefully I can introduce you to some new products! I love reading these types of posts as I can relate to people’s skin and hair condition and check out products I probably would never have found myself! So without further ado …

Shampoo: Pantene Pro-V Repair and Protect
Conditioner: Pantene Pro-V Repair and Protect
Conditioning Masque:Tresemme Breakage Defence Restructuring Treatment Masque (1 to 2 times a week)
Treatments:Aussie Miracle Recharge Insurance Leave-in
Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Split End Protection Cream
Lee Stafford Hair Growth Leave-in Treatment

Dry Shampoo: Batiste Dry Shampoo in Tropical
Hairspray: Vo5 High Volume Hairspray
Hairbrush: Tangle Teezer (my holy grail product)
I dye my hair and as it has bleach in it, my hair can be become brittle and damaged. I like to use strengthening/repairing products to give my hair its best chance, I find these not only smell great but really help my hair. I try not to curl/straighten/blow dry my hair often and will now only do this if I have an occasion. I find this change was best to keep my hair healthy.
2. Face and Body
Face Wash: Nivea Gentle Cleansing Cream Wash
Body Wash: Depends what season we are in, for Spring/Summer I’d either use Soap and Glory Sugar Crush or The Body Shop Strawberry. In the Autumn/Winter I’d go for Soap and Glory Rich, and Foamous or a Christmas scented one like Avon’s Sugar Plum and Vanilla or The Body Shop Christmas range.
Exfoliator: Anything by Soap and Glory; Pulp Friction, Flake Away, Sugar Crush Body Scrub, Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub.
I find their products are so soft and gentle on my skin and the smells are incredible. I will not go for any other brand when it comes to exfoliation.
Body Moisturiser: Either Nivea Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream or Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Lightly Whipped Body Cream.
Face Moisturiser: Always Nivea, usually their Rich Moisturising Day and Night Cream
Deodorant: Nivea Pearl and Beauty
Cleanser: No7 Soft and Soothed Gentle Cleanser
Toner: No7 Soft and Soothed Gentle Toner
