Lavendar Soap and Fresh Linen

Revlon Parfumerie Polishes- Review


Hello my loves!

I have forever wanted to try out the Parfumerie collection from Revlon mainly because of the adorable packaging. The bottles are so chic and classy and the fact that they’re so petite, make them hard to not love.  I adore all the colours in the collection but you know me, I’m just obsessed with pastel colours that border on the ‘white’ scheme of life. I know, you must think I’m so boring but I prefer to say that I just know what I want.

Now here’s the thing, the first time I picked one of these up, since they are scented, I expected when I smelt it from the bottle that it would smell like the way they said it would. Unless you want to be knocked out by an intense nail polishy scent, I strongly advise you not to do that.

So there I was being disappointed because I was like well this isn’t the way I thought this scenario would play out but I still bought it anyway because I really wanted to try out the formula-even if it wasn’t scented. I picked up Lavender Soap and Fresh Linen which surprise surprise, were more on that white side I was talking about.

The first colour I tried was the lavender one and I have to say it was a bit streaky and needed a few coats to become fully opaque so my disappoint was clear at that point. But then, when they dried and I was just lounging about watching TV, I smelt the most amazing clean scent everrrr. It was literally like a yummy soap scent and at first, it didn’t occur to me it was the polish.

But obviously it was (Lavender Soap of course!)and I was in HEA-VEN. It was such a lovely scent even I was unbelieved. It then dawned upon me these polishes are in fact truly scented-when they are on your nails. I was pleasantly surprised and despite having to put 2-3 coats, I still found myself liking this product.

You very well could imagine my excitement to try Fresh Linen, which didn’t disappoint! After drying on my nails the scent of freshly washed sheets wafted through the air.

The scent is very strong at first and will last about 3 days max…maybe even 4 if you have a really good nose.

Both polishes also had a lovely sheen to it- a pearlescent finish if you want a fancier word  for these fancy little bottles.

I would recommend you try at least one of the polishes from the collection just to have something different from the mundane world of polishes.

Hope you enjoyed this mini review and I was thinking instead of doing reviews on my channel, I could do a few on my blog. I’m thinking M.A.C. lipstick swatches next. What do you think?!

Memebox #12- Korean Beauty Products


My lovely readers!

Don’t you just love when a beauty subscription box arrives at your doorstep? I love sharing everything that I get with you so let’s get started on today’s Memebox! In case you don’t know what that is, let me just fill you in.

Memebox is the first of its kind Korean beauty subscription box that ships to more than 45 countries-something that has been lacking when it comes to other beauty boxes like Ipsy and Boxycharm.

Get $5.00 off any oder with the code LFW3SB3WFJ [valid till the end of July 2014!]

 

The box I got was Memebox #12 which featured many hair products- among other goodies.

First up was this hair removal cream.

In the video I actually demonstrated me removing a patch of hair with this product. Yes, it was VERY awkward but I know that many people prefer I show how things work/look on me so I took one for the team guys. Basically you spray the product and leave for 15-20 minutes and then take the stick that it comes with and gently remove the hair with it. You can always use a wet cloth to remove the hair. It comes off in no time, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth.

The Claypatra Mineral Salt Clay Pack was one of my favourite things in this box- you know how I feel about products for my skin!

It’s a pure mud extract from the Dead Sea- how Cleopatra-worthy right?! It feels like such a luxurious mask on your skin and it dries rather quickly which I feel makes for a good last minute skin pick me up. The salts and minerals are like a magnet for removing all the ickies-from sebum to dead skin, immediately unclogging your pores.

For your hair, there were two amazing products. First was this anti-hair loss treatment which I think is perfect for people with thin hair- aka myself. It strengthens your hair and prevents it from dropping. I like the fact that it’s kinda like a mask for you hair. When you’re in the shower you just leave it in for 2-3 minutes and then wash like normal.

meme4After you wash that product off, you can supplement your hair routine with this one.

memebox3Post towel drying your hair, add this and it works like a leave in conditioner- replenishing your hair all day.

Let’s be real, what girl doesn’t have stretch marks? This contains a unique formula which helps to get those marks under control!

For my nails, coral is perfect for this time of year. Personally for me, you know I don’t like bright colours on my nails and I always end up with white polish. But still, this is a lovely shade nonetheless and come on- the little flower detail is so cute!

Hairfinity- Healthy Hair Complex Review


Hello my beauty lovers!

I’m currently in the lovely NYC and I absolutely love it here. I’m so happy and my hair is as well. Why? Well for the past month, I’ve been taking Hairfinity which is a healthy hair supplement -emphasis on the supplement part. The reason why I love this so much is exactly because it’s a dietary supplement and not any kind of drug or product that will drastically alter your natural body chemistry- cause I’m not a huge fan of anything like that. It contains 18 amnio acids and for those of you who know a lil biochemistry, some amino acids are not made in the body and are required through the diet. Realistically, do we eat food that will adequately fulfill all our nutritious needs- vitamins and minerals required? Yea, didn’t think so.  And of course if you also didn’t know, our hair is essentially protein and protein is made of amino acids- are you following me now?

Daily supplement to be taken x2 daily

Daily supplement to be taken x2 daily

Hairfinity is rich in these amino acids which means that your hair will be getting all the nutrients needed to make it strong and healthy. And not only does it contain those amino acids, but it also has sulfur and collagen. Sulfur is used in the very same protein synthesis- hence it’s also referred to as the ‘building blocks of hair’- and collagen sheaths your hair, connecting it to tiny blood vessels which help to deliver nutrients for thick, healthy hair. This makes it an all around ideal dietary supplement not only for your hair- but for your body in general! It’s like they say- a beautiful you starts from the inside out- something I firmly believe in. So instead of slathering on gels and creams and all of that, try Hairfinity and take a new approach- from the inside out.

Loving how healthy glossy my hair looks since I've been taking Hairfinity

Loving how healthy glossy my hair looks since I’ve been taking Hairfinity

Personally for me, my hair has grown a bit but it was just one month since I’ve been taking it and I have 2 more to go so definitely you’ll be seeing some before and after pictures very soon. Besides the length though, what I have noticed is that my hair has been looking so much healthier and glossier since I started using Hairfinity so it’s definitely doing something and I’m loving it! Stay tuned for more updates! XO, The Classy It Girl!
