If you're looking for something to improve your hair fast then look no further. Elaticizer is without a shadow of a doubt my best beauty find of 2016.
Having gone through a crazy hair journey since I was 16 (I've been every colour under the sun), the condition of my hair was disastrous and what I needed was a great conditioner. Enter Elasticizer - It is a pre shampoo hair treatment which adds moisture into the hair’s cuticle to help reduce breakage and restore the hair’s strength and stretch ability. All this goodness leads to less breakage and snapping, so finally your hair is not only gleaming but looks and feels much healthier too. Not to mention it was Audrey Hepburn's top hair treatment and well, if it's good enough for our Aud's then it’s certainly good enough for me.
FACE WASH/MAKE UP REMOVER - EVE LOM CLEANSER
So before I begin with how much of a transformation this product has made on my skin I want to put out a little disclaimer, IT IS NOT THE CHEAPEST SKIN CARE you will ever find. End of disclaimer, now to commence:
I purchased this cleanser back in May after seeing that this product has consistently been the number 1 most sold product for the last 15 years. And without a shadow of doubt this is now my “holy grail” of cleansers. The smell is beautiful and its melts delicately in your hands into an oil so you can massage it into your face. It is made up of a number of natural oils which all have their own benefits such as; chamomile oil to soften and soothe, clove oil for clarity, eucalyptus oil to decongest, hop oil to tone, and cocoa butter to condition your skin. OK OK Ok, so if you’re anything like me that is a load of jargon, I like to think I know what that all means but I don’t. But in all honestly this cleanser leaves your skin feeling toned, hydrated and soft as a baby bum. I LOVE IT.
SPOT TREATMENT - SUDOCREM
Yep you heard it right, baby bum cream has made it to my best of beauty 2016 list. So technically this isn't just a 2016 best of beauty, this product in fact makes it on to my ride or die lifelong list but I thought I’d add it in here so you could discover it too. I have been using Sudocrem since I was 16 and to this day I still swear it is THE best thing I have ever used on my spots. Whenever I get a break out, this is the first product I reach for. I apply Sudocrem onto my spot's before I go to bed and, in the morning they are significantly reduced, if not gone. The amount of people that have laughed and said "PFFFTT no chance that works" then slowly one by one I am turning them. Trust me, give this product a go. after all, a trial of this beauty hardly breaks the bank with a small pot coming in at around £2. Baby bum cream I love you and will promise to stay loyal to you all my life. AMEN.
TOP TIP: If your spot is open, AKA you’ve been having a little pick make sure you wait for the spot to close before you apply the Sudocrem directly to it,Otherwise the Sudocrem will get in the spot and make it look like a white head has formed.
BATH OILS - AROMATHERAPY
Ok so this girl LAVS a bath. I just love them, if time allowed I would have a bath every night of the week. There is nothing I love more than getting into a hot bath filled with body oil. Growing up I suffered with really sensitive skin so the idea of bath oils was a huge no, however for Christmas last year Joel brought me some Aromatherapy bath oils and since then I have never gone back. Not only do they feature some of the most amazing smells, which turn your bathroom into a spa, they also make your skin feel nourished and hydrated. Granted these oils don’t come in cheap, but rest assured you honestly needs 2-3 drops in a large full bath and that is enough to feel the benefits. I still have sensitive skin but these do not irritate it at all. If you are ever stuck for a present for your mum, sister, step mum or aunty and they too are someone who loves a bath I can promise you these are going to make them smile from ear to ear.
TOP TIP: If you wanted to try these incredible oils out I would recommend purchasing the 10 x 3ml mini bath and shower oil collection, this way you can try all the different smells Aromatherapy has to offer to find the perfect one for you.
