I’ve tried out the new L’Oréal extraordinary oil shampoo and conditioner, Sublime Body Nutrilift body lotion and Triple Active 24h day cream.
Being a naturel redhead I have not been blessed with soft silky hair that just dries in a perfectly acceptable hairstyle. The bottom half of my head dries curly and the top half dries frizzy. A daily joy I must admit.. Urban dictionary moment: Frizzy example: A feeling of complete chaos. An emotion when you don’t know what to do about something, and also if you can’t make up your mind. (yes, my hair has emotions)
To start with the extraordinary oil shampoo, I was a little apprehensive of using an oil on my hair. As many of you, (there’s no denying) I have endured the awful experience of finishing my hair for a night out and realising I have a major grease spot at the back of my head thanks to an excess of oil. The shampoo and conditioner both have a very nice smell and texture. I have half long hair and a little bit of shampoo goes a long way. Next up the conditioner, it says on the bottle to apply it all over your hair, top to ends. I massaged it into my scalp and left it on for a good 2 – 3 minutes. My hair is a lot softer, and the frizz is a whole lot less than when I use regular products. It doesn’t weigh your hair down but leaves it controllable and shiny. I can now just put it in a bun or plat without having fluffy bits sticking out so big thumbs up from me! If you are planning on curling your hair, I wouldn’t advise you to use an oil base shampoo or conditionner, your curls will not stay put and there’s nothing worse than spending all that time curling your hair for it to last 5 minutes!
Next up the Sublime Body Nutrilift lotion. I have only been using this for a few days so I don’t have the full effect yet. It tells you to use it for 4 weeks, everyday, morning and evening. It smells lovely and absorbs quickly into the skin. It contains both ceramide and collagen. The ceramide hydrates your skin (remember the winter is coming peeps, aka the time of horrendous dry legs) and the collagen tightens everything up. I’m going to use it twice daily in combination with going to the gym. I’m hoping I’ll see a difference on my thighs where I can use a little push in the tighter direction.
Last but not least, the Triple Active day cream. As you all know I use Bio Oil on my face as well, I do only use this at night because it does leave you with a shine, so for the day time I decided to try out this day cream. It’s paraben free (very important!), contains vitamin E, ceramide and a UV filter, which in my opinion every day cream should contain. It’s very light and blends in easily and is a perfect base for your make up!
So all in all a big thumbs up for these products, I’m curious for the result after the next 4 weeks of using the body lotion, but I am definitely sold on the extraordinary oil shampoo/conditioner and day cream!
Keep your moisture levels up people, drinks lots of water and remember to rub that lotion in before you end up looking like a flakey reptile! NOT a look you want to aim for!
