I love to experiment with beauty products, trying different mascara’s, lipsticks, eye shadows,etc. I love testing new textures, new finishes and new colours, but when it comes to the basics, like foundation, face creams, showergels and shampoo’s, I’m pretty stuck on my old favourites, that’s why I was so happy when Beauty Bulletin sent over some products to test and I was pleasantly surprised to say the least! Here are my reviews for the products and my first attempts at doing some video reviews.
1. Garnier, Miracle Skin Perfector, BB Cream
I must start my saying that I have a long history with BB Creams. My first BB Cream which I purchased was the Garnier BB Cream , way back when it first came to South Africa and I was smitten. I was completely taken by the multi tasking wonder of a face cream. It replaced all my other make – up products and left my skin moisturised and feeling smooth and soft. Then I moved to South Korea, where I purchased BB Creams there and it was the complete opposite of what I was used to. Thick, sticky pore clogging… no thank you. So I was completely put off purchasing any BB Creams, until now.
I must admit I was very excited to start testing the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector when Beauty Bulletin sent this to me and I was definitely not disappointed. I love the smooth and almost liquid texture of the product. It goes on easily onto my skin and provides light, but ample coverage. It’s moisturising, but non oily and it leaves my skin matt, but looking healthy and energised. I feel that I have less breakouts and I don’t need to apply extra concealer or any other make up products to my skin after using this. I am back to using just this on my face instead of foundation. I still use my daily moisturiser with it, but I don’t think its really necessary.
I love the fact that it is a multipurpose product, which saves me time and money. I really enjoyed this product and will definitely be repurchasing this! Great value for money!
2. Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash
I must start by saying! I LOVE this product! I grew up in a house where a bar of DOVE soap was always at hand. The smells always reminds me of home and I have always been a firm believer in Dove . I have always only purchased the bars of soap, that is until I received the Dove Nourishing Body Wash. Boy-oh-boy, was I pleasantly surprised, they didn’t apply the word nourishing lightly. This product is great. It delivers exactly what it promises. It moistens my skin and leaves it smelling and feeling fresh and soft. The sent is very light and not overpowering and won’t interfere with the smell of your daily perfume.
The texture of the body wash is nice and thick, it feels luxurious. It lathers a lot, so a little goes a long way. It really leaves my skin moisturised and I have found myself skipping on my normal body moisturiser after my shower, since I started using this product.
I highly recommend this product. It is value for money and it delivers what is promises.
3. Head and Shoulders Anti Hair Fall Shampoo
Hi, everyone! I was lucky to receive the Head and Shoulders anti hair fall shampoo to review . I have used Head and Shoulders before , but luckily I don’t suffer from dandruff, but I do have stress related hair fall . My hair’s condition has degraded drastically from when I was at University to starting my new job, as a result of stress. So I was obviously very exited to try something that can help me with that.
I have been pleasantly surprised my the head and shoulders. My hair look healthier, full of body, stronger and shinier since I started using it. The shampoo is nice and thick, with a fresh smell clean smell. It tingles lovely on your scalp when you use it and it foams a lot. it’s lovely.
I have seen a reduction in the amount of hair that I have been losing and I hope that it will continue! My scalp and hair looks and feels healthier since I started using this shampoo.
I will definitely recommend it,its affordable and it works wonderfully!
