Recent Empties: Shower.


L'Oreal Elvive Nutrigloss Sparkling Conditioner: I was sucked in by the new product advertising and purchased the matching shampoo which I am yet to finish. The shampoo is so pretty- a pink jelly with sparkles! The conditioner however is not so pretty, just a plain creamy milky pink in colour, and to be honest it made my hair feel soft like any conditioner would, but also quite heavy and weighed down even though I had rinsed it all out. I didn't like it, and won't be buying it again. 

John Frieda Full Repair Deep Conditioner: This I bought after using it back in September (full review here), it softened my hair and made it easier to comb through. As deep conditioners go, it is a good one, but as always the tub size doesn't last me that long!

Charles Worthington Mineral Hair Rescue: I loved this. This was really effective in what it did, it wasn't as heavy as other conditioners and a little seemed to go a long way. I noticed good results with this and will buy it again.


L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil: (Full review here) This is a wonderful, luxury product. It smells like almonds in a nutty way, rather than an amaretto way. It lathers nicely, though not greatly, leaves skin feeling clean and soft and best of all is is paraben and SLS-free.

Original Source Vanilla Milk and Raspberry Shower Gel: I adore the smell and consistency of this. It is so foamy, yet it still feels gentle on the skin. I try not to buy this often, but it is on offer quite a lot and I can't always justify splashing out on the more expensive, kind to skin shower gels.

Burt's Bees Fabulously Fresh Peppermint and Rosemary Body Wash: (Full Review here) This is a good value for money shower gel, it's free from nasty ingredients and it's 350ml lasts a long time. The scent is fresh and herby, and it lathers and foams really well. The scent lingers on your skin for a little while too, I love that fresh feeling.

Original Source Lemon and Tea Tree Shower Gel: Just a small travel size shower gel I took with me when I was staying in London for a week. It's so so, not as nice as the vanilla milk and raspberry one, and again, I do try and avoid SLS as much as I can. 

Thanks for reading,



  1. I've got the Vanilla Milk & Raspberry Shower Gel in my cupboard. Haven't used it yet but it smells lovely! I really like Original Source Shower Gels even though they do contain SLS. I'm currently using the mint one, was addicted to it when the heat was wild.

  2. I love Original Source shower gels but I've never tried this one. It sounds good enough to eat!


  3. I took a mini Original Source Mint shower gel away with me a few months ago, hated it and gave it to my dad! That Burt's Bees one sounds goood x

  4. I quite like the Original Source shower gels, they're on the better side for their price. I loved the Lemon one but didn't even realise they did a Vanilla and Raspberry one, sounds really nice! x

  5. I was curious about the Elvive conditioner, but I might not even try it now as my hair weighs down quite easily! x

    Una hora menos en el paraíso

  6. I love the original soure gels, the mint one on a mornin makes you feel so refreshed and awake its great !!x

  7. The L'Occitane oil sounds gorgeous, I love their stuff xx

  8. I always get sucked into promotional products or the fact they're new >.< you're not the only one!


  9. I wanted to try this shampoo for so long but thanks for heading me in a different direction :) Easy to get sucked in to the main stream hair products but in fact they do nothing for our hair!!!
