My Trip to Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa

My Trip to Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa

Last summer I had a really traumatising experience at a local hairdressers. My hair has been natural for ten years and I had taken it out of braids so decided to have my usual treatment. I decided to go to a local hairdressers and instead of giving me simple treatment, they decided (for unspeakable reason) to mix some relaxer in with the treatment there to create some weird concoction. To cut a long story short my hair ended up being semi relaxed in the middle and natural at the back. Needless to say I was beyond furious. The situation now … Read More

Good Things Argan Oil Collection

In case you don’t know I have a very soft spot for Good Things. It is a lovely skincare brand that is very purse friendly but amazing quality. They released their new range in January with Argan Oil. Now we all know that Argan Oil has been a huge buzzword for the last few years and we are all aware of the wonderful benefit it has on our hair and skin, so I was very curious to try out this new collection.

The Good Things Argan Oil range consists of a Nourishing Cleansing Oil, Moisture Boost Facial Serum, Perfecting Read More

Cloud 9 Skin Solutions Skin Rehab Scar Minimising Cream

Cloud 9 Skin Solutions Skin Rehab Scar Minimising Cream

Cloud 9 Skin Solutions is a skincare brand whose products are aimed at providing solutions to skin concerns such as dry skin, cellulite or scars. I tried Cloud 9 Skin Solutions Skin Rehab Scar Minimising Cream, the results of which I was highly anticipating since scars can take an annoyingly long time to fade naturally. The cream is said to help prevent new scars from forming, help improve skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of scars and reduce itching and redness. It’s hypoallergenic so I felt okay to be applying it to my sensitive skin.

The Scar Minimising Cream should … Read More

Bobbi Brown CC Cream SPF 35

Bobbi Brown CC Cream SPF 35

It’s always good news here at brownbeauty when we hear a brand has extended their shade range, we all know how difficult it can be to find a good CC/BB/DD/ZZ cream in deeper shades. Bobbi Brown have added two extra shades to their CC Cream range; Blushed Nude and Rich Nude. This takes the range from three shades to five, which doesn’t sound like a lot, especially for Bobbi Brown, but the CC Cream has quite sheer coverage, so the shades cover a range of skin tones.

I received the Bobbi Brown CC Cream SPF 35 in Read More

Archeia Rose Rejuvenating Cream

Archeia Rose Rejuvenating Cream

Archeia’s skincare products are centred on providing anti-ageing solutions, with the use of organic ingredients only. Not only are their products organic, but they are also free from artificial fragrances, parabens, and free from animal cruelty too, which is to me the most attractive part of their ethics. They are also a British brand.

I was thrilled to try the Archeia Rose Rejuvenating Cream because it supposedly revives the secrets of ancient Egyptian royals, suggesting that it should deliver a very high performance. The pot also supports this expectation. It’s made of glass and has a very chic, faceted and … Read More
