It’s been quite some time since I did any product review. Time to catch up!
Suppose there is an unexpected get-together or someone is coming to see you on a short notice. Getting ready is not a big deal but what do you do about those ugly split-ends spiking out of your strands that just won’t remain unseen no matter how you let your hair be (tied up or loose)? What do you do when you have to battle with brushing through your tangled up hair that just keeps knotting up?
You use hair serum.
Hair serum is your after-wash resort specially designed for unmanageable and frizzy hair by providing them with lubrication and thus makes your life easier! It coats hair with protective layer that forms a barrier against damaging factors like heat, humidity and dust whilst providing your hair with luster it lacked. For the same reason it is always advised to apply some serum onto your hair before you use any hair-styling tool that emits heat.
Hair dyes have caused so much damage that even after avoiding dying for a year my hair is still reaping the harmful effects. So the hair serum I got hold of recently is Cristal Serum Split Ends Seal by Energy Cosmetics. As the description says it is supposed to glue together split-ends.
At the back of the bottle it says,
Fluid having high restoring and fixative value, efficacious in maintaining the hair style both on damaged and natural hair. It is particularly suitable for innovative and free style or to mould the curls. Thanks to the restructuring and moisturizing capacity it restores tone, volume and brightness and repairs the split ends.
- It definitely brightened up my hair by making them lustrous
- It did volumize my hair to some extent (as you can see the difference in the picture below) and gave it some body
- Overall it managed to tame down my hair, but
- It wasn’t too effective in taming my short stray strands (I know I need a hair cut)
- And neither 100 % effective on sealing my split-ends =/
- Yet I’m happy that this serum wasn’t too heavy on my hair
This 60 ml glass bottle comes with a pump discharge nozzle and it is a product made in Italy. The nice scent is also a plus!
I think Cristal Serum Split Ends Seal by Energy Cosmetics will suit best for those who like to style their locks into soft curls, giving curly locks more definition and shine.
So that’s it for now folks! Have a good day! 🙂
I’m sure everyone loves lips that don’t lie.. but what if these lies are needed to cover up those ugly tell-tale signs of chapped lips?
The sad truth is that sometimes even good lipsticks and glosses are not enough to completely conceal those lips engraved with unappealing cracks and chaps. What those lips need is .. what they are deprived of – your Care and Attention.. AND a lip balm or a chap stick!
What I use and been using since my childhood is the century-old brand LABELLO which comes in MANY fun flavors and colors. I have used LABELLO in Classic Care, Soft Rosé, Pearly Shine, Fruity Shine (cherry & strawberry), Angel Star and recently I got myself LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry.
As you take the cap off, LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry greets you with an uplifting berrilicious scent and the tempting lovely swirls of pink and soft red colors this marbled stick is graced with. The sight and the scent AND the subtitle “Vitamin Shake” would instantly make anyone want to eat that stick – but PLEASE do NOT try that!
This Vitamin Shake turned out excellent in nourishing my lips with essential vitamins and enrich them with moisture so my lips feel soft, smooth and velvety. The delicious flavor makes me want to envelop my lips generously with this lip balm all the time and it also gives a subtle gloss to them which is a plus!
Give LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry a go and your lips will thank you for so much love and care .. and for never having to lie again!
Heat is still on the roll but that doesn’t mean your skin doesn’t require moisturization at all during summers. Specially after taking bath, your skin needs to be restored with essential moisture that has been stripped away by shower gels, soaps and scrubs. Or else dryness and itchiness can get so bad that it would almost feel like tiny bugs nipping you all over! And don’t forget about those rough cracked heels too which can be bothersome with every slightest touch of any fabric on them.. Ughh!!!
To be honest, I haven’t been much happy with most of the moisturizers I have used until I bought Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh. It is AWESOME. Other moisturizers feel weighted and sticky on my skin.. I SO hate that! So eventually I feel compelled to wash it off. Even some of those which claim to be light on skin, are not so light on my feet as they soon remind me I have applied ‘something greasy’ that will be there forever and annoy me until I wash it off.
But Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh is true to its words. It’s so light that it immediately gets absorbed after rubbing onto skin and Voila! “Did I even apply anything there” I wonder. Ofcourse, the main purpose of providing hydration and nourishment to skin is also observed as skin feels silky, soft and supple. Their innovative Stratys-3 complex infusion permeates and disperses hydration throughout all the layers of skin.
Now, the reason I picked Aloe Fresh out of the range is cz anything with Aloe extract or Aloe Vera itself is great for skin. Aloe heals, soothes and nourishes many problematic skin conditions like eczema. It treats sunburns and is a great moisturizer. I have been happily using it even as a base on my face sometime when the weather is too dry to avoid dry patches build-up. And Yes! Thankgod, I can even use it for my dry heels without it feeling greasy. Who needs a separate foot cream when your body moisturizer does the work?
Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh certainly is my friend and will be throughout the year. What about you? Which moisturizer do YOU find non-greasy?
