Today I'm reviewing this super-inexpensive and surprisingly good coverage foundation from Penney's/Primark. Living in France, it is difficult to find but luckily my Mam comes back and forth from Ireland quite often so she brought me this to try out. Thanks Mam! Gotta love Penney's eh?
I decided to do a review of this KIKO Milano Nourishing lip balm since i have just recovered from the worst case of chapped lips ever. I had the flu for the last couple of weeks there and my lips really suffered badly during that time. No matter what i did, they were dry and flaking. I would wake up in the morning with the worst case of dry mouth and my lips would be bone dry and really gross. Sorry for the yucky explanation there but i have never in my life experienced anything that bad on my lips.
I have been on the look out for a decent lip balm for the winter months, since my lips are prone to chapping so i needed to find a really good quality one. I use lip balm all year round as part of my daily routine in the morning and re-apply at least twice a day so i was keen to find a really good one. I had a recommendation from a friend of mine for an Aloe vera based one which has menthol infused so it has a nice fresh and very mild scent. It also provides a cooling sensation when applied. It is calming and silky with just the right amount of moisture so that it glides on perfectly and only needs one coat. Aloe vera is healing aswell so if you have dry or chapped lips it helps. It prevents drying and protects from the outside elements.
This is my first ever proper review. I had to write about these hair products as they have had an astonishing effect on my hair. I bought the shampoo to try since it had liquid keratin and protein in it. I love keratin products and i have been told my hair lacked protein once. I had an analysis done by an award winning stylist in New Zealand where she tested a few strands of my broken hair from the ends. It was so dry and brittle and was lacking volume. It was limp and lifeless. However, she applied an amazing protein shampoo and after one wash it was instantly full of volume and felt much stronger. After that i committed to using protein shampoo permanently.
