Peripera Pearly Night Space Globe Ink Velvet Tint Review

IMG_5489

Hello Everyone

I’m back with some Peripera products to review for you all. I know how much you all love this brand and I was as ballistic as the rest of the Korean Beauty universe when I saw this picture on my instagram, advertising the release of this absolutely stunning Christmas edition products. The compacts have moving glitter packaging, the lipgloss has hearts and stars in them. There is a BLACK lipgloss!!!( Who is with me on this?! I am a BIG fan of non conventional lip colours like black and blue. ) And the lip tints have snow globes on the tops of the packaging. I don’t think I need to elaborate on how much I am obsessing over this collection. 

So this is the picture of the products I got:

IMG_5496

Here you can see the glory of the snow globe:


I got both of the glosses, two out of four of the tints, one of the two highlighters (because the pink one was sold out) and the lavender cushion foundation, of which there is a pink one exactly like it.

I work in the afternoons so reviewing of these in one go would not only destroy my lips, but it would take me at least a day, so I decided to break it down into categories. Today I will be talking about the Snow Globe Liptints. 

They are the same as the permanent line of Peri’s Ink Velvet, except off course for the white tops, instead of black, and the snow globes on tops. Some of you may know that I have quite a weakness for the this entire brand and I own eight other tints aside from these two. Here is a picture below showing you some of the ones I have. 

IMG_5527.jpg The Airy Velvet is their latest range and it’s a very soft matte velvet. Then there is the Peri’s Ink Moist in the shiny containers which is a line of glossy tints. The orange one is from the original, ever so popular Peri’s Ink line. And the fourth one is from the Peri’s Ink Velvet line, the same as the snow globe ones, but they, although not special in colour, came in limited edition Power Puff Girl packaging. (I just realised I haven’t even reviews the Airy Velvet and the Original line for you yet. I’ll do that ASAP too.)

Click on the burgundy words for links to my reviews of these:

 

And here is a picture of the two snow globe ones I got from the Pearly Night collection:

IMG_5506

I got #1 Sellout Red and #6 Celeb Deep Rose. 

Here are the swatches:

IMG_5525

If you look closely you can see how the product pulls into the crack and does bleed and stain. Duh… it’s a liptint. It’s meant to stain. I just want to point it out to people who perhaps are not a fan of the long lasting staying power of a tint, and these are famous for being extra hardy.

Here is what they look like on my lips:

#1 Sellout Red

IMG_5519.jpg

It’s a bright slightly orange toned ferrari red. Perfect for Christmas of for the girl who likes to rock red lipstick, like me.

And here is #6 Celeb Deep Rose

IMG_5524

I can’t really explain this in any other way than saying it’s like pumpkin spice. It actually reminds of of Lime Crime’s Pumpkin but not as orange. It’s also quite similar to an OCC liptar I have called Merlange and it’s described as Terracotta Red.

These are like liquid matte lipsticks more than being the conventional tint, but they stain like a tint. They last about 4 hours on me. 

I would definitely repurchase. I actually just realised that the Power Puff Girl one is also #6 so now I have a backup. Let it be a lesson. Make a list of the permanent range you already have and don’t fall for the packaging, if you don’t want a backup. 😉 I think the fact that I’ve accidentally bought  multiples of these is proof of how much I appreciate them.

Have you tried any of these? How did you like them?

Oka (Wrinkle Care) Mask Review 

Hello everyone

Some of you may know that I have been gifted some masks to test when I visited the KBeauty expo at Kintex last month. One of the brands that gifted me some products is called Oka. That is what’s really great about attending expos such as these. You get to become acquainted with brands you’ve never heard of or otherwise might never have heard of before, and it really broadens one’s horizons.

This is what I got from Oka:

The first thing I tried is the Wrinkle Care Mask. Firstly, how freaking adorable is the packaging on these masks? I want to cut the faces out and use them for scrapbooking, they are so pretty.


I don’t know if you can notice from the picture, but the packet is quite chunky. I was expecting it to either be a lipmask or some mega thick mask, but it turns out the mask is quite thin but there is serum for days in that packet! I was literally able to lather my whole upper body, stomach and thighs with the excess serum after applying the mask AND serum onto my face.

Here is what I looked like during the application:


As you can tell, it’s a thin sheet, which is the way I like it.

Here is the back of the packet:


The instructions said to put the mask on for 15-20 minutes: I’m never much of a timer when it comes to things like this. I just go with the feeling of it and to me when the mask starts to feel like it’s drying on my skin, I take it off and tap in the excess serum.

Here is a list of the ingredients:

Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Propanediol, 1,2- Hexanediol, Diglycerin, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Persea gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Centella Asiatica Extract, Royal Jelly Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Artemisia Vulgaris Extract, Octyldodeceth- 16, Carbomer, Arginine, Allantoin, Disodium EDTA, Adenosine.  

I’m going mmmmm that makes sense: Avocado, Royal Jelly and Collagen… those are all really excellent ingredients so it makes sense why it’s so good! My skin did feel amazing afterwards. It definitely felt like a high quality mask to me.

Would I purchase this? Yes, I want to buy them in bulk and get my hands on the ones I haven’t had the opportunity to try yet.

I will be posting a review of the other mask that I got from this line soon!

Until next time

3 Days Love Skincare Treatment Review


Hello Everyone

Today I am going to share my experience at a booth at the KBeauty Expo that took place in Ilsan on the of October. I was just wandering around the booths when I got approached by the people are 3 Days Love. They wanted to know if I’d be willing to have a treatment done by them, so I agreed to it.
From what I could see by the banners and posters that were hung around the booth, this procedure involved some form of acupuncture and it got me curious. They laid me down on a bed and proceeded to removed my makeup. They then applied their a light version of their cream called Soft Peel Cream (The silver packaging) and started massaging it into my face. I was confused because from what I could tell, the lady didn’t use any pins; she didn’t use any equipment but I could clearly feel the millions of little pinpricks of acupuncture all over my face. They then explained that the cream they were using contains little microscopic pieces of coral that they call Bio Micro Needles and get lodged in the skin. The cream penetrates the skin through the little hollows in the pieces of coral, and the acupuncture-like pinpricks stimulate the skin and promote regrowth. It’s a reverse peeling process.


They then applied a second cream (The gold packaging) with more pieces of coral, or perhaps larger pieces, and the pain was a bit worse the second cream. The first cream called Soft Peel Cream was used to wean one into the pain level, and the second one, called Hard Peel Cream,  was more painful than the first. I must admit that it was quite a painful experience, and I wouldn’t recommend to anyone who is very sensitive or doesn’t have a high threshold for pain, but in saying this I want to add that sometimes a little bit of pain is worth it.


Here are the samples of the after care treatment that they gave me:


Luckily the following steps are aimed at soothing the pain and leaving your skin as little irritated as possible. The first of the post treatment steps is a cooling spray called Peptide Mist. They covered my eyes and sprayed the mist onto my face. It was really refreshing after the painful treatment. The man explained that it’s a spray that doesn’t need to be tapped into the skin because it automatically absorbs into one’s skin.
Next they applied a light cream called Derma Touch S.C Cream, which also aided in recovering my skin from pricks of the coral creams. I actually expected my skin to be extremely bloodshot and irritated, but my skin had no signs of irritation or redness, so I felt confident that even though the treatment was painful, it wasn’t bad for my skin.

They then applied the Recovery Balm (BB cream) that not only acted as makeup, but as soothing and rejuvenation after the treatment. As you can see in the pictures, you can’t tell that I just underwent an acupuncture like treatment.

One of the men at the booth sat me down and explained the process to me in full. He kept insisting that shouldn’t use anything other water to wash my face for the following 3 days, and from day 4 I can start using a mild foam wash.  He told me that my skin was going to start peeling within that time period. I’m now going to give you a day to day feedback after the procedure.

Sunday: (The day on which I got the treatment) I had to go to choir straight after I went to the expo. I had no time to go home and rest. My skin hurt with every movement. I could clearly feel that my face was riddled with little prickly pear thorn like pins. It was very painful. I felt miserable and grouchy and sore. By the time I came back from choir, my skin still hurt. I washed my face with water and applied the 3 steps that they gave me in sample sizes, including the bb cream, and went straight to bed.

Monday: Today my skin looks absolutely flawless. The spots on my nose are gone. The pores are tighter and my skin looks overall more clear and mattified. The pain is completely gone. The only noticeable feeling is a feeling of tightness.

Tuesday: my skin feels tight and dry. There are signs of peeling, as little patches of dry, dead skin cells are showing. I have been told not to scratch, even though it might get itchy. I applied the 3 step post treatment products one extra time, just because I felt like my skin needed more nourishment. I also had my braces readjusted today and had some filing done on my teeth, so the constant open mouth position also made my skin feel tight and stretched.

Wednesday: I woke up this morning with a lot of flaky skin around the outer edges of my face: around the jaw and up the cheeks after washing my face little rolls of dead skin came off and the peeling is much less visible to almost gone.

Thursday: My skin feels very firm and healthy. There were still little patches of dry skin here and there but it all came off after washing is with a mild clay facial wash.

They also gave me a sample of their Whimela Skin Implant Cream which is a light, daily version of their Peel creams. It can be used daily because you can hardly feel the bio micro needles. It is not only good for maintaining the effects of the treatment, but it also has whitening properties.

Here is what the Whimela Cream looks like:

img_5340

 

My conclusion: Yes, these products really work. My skin did feel and look amazing afterwards. I must say though that I was told that this treatment is aimed at people older than 35, and I just turned 30, so perhaps it’s a bit premature for me to be getting into procedures such as these. It was overall a very informative and interesting, although painful, experience, and I would recommend it to anyone who is open to trying different things.

 

Here are the pictures that I took from the brochure they gave me:

That’s it from me, till next time.

Lime Crime Velvetines

Velvetines Banner_1920x400.jpgDear Ladies and Jellyspoons

Today I will be talking about a brand that I’ve never tried or reviewed before, although it has always been on my wishlist. Lime Crime is a brand that is complete vegan and cruelty free. It’s similar to Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics in some ways, but it is very unique in other ways. 

The one thing that struck me from the get go is their packaging. Their Velvetines, which are liquid lipsticks, come in the most beautiful glass vials with red tops covered in roses. Not only do they pay attention to detail with their packaging, but when you order anything from them, it comes in the most beautiful little boxes. 

IMG_4865

They really pay attention to detail. The little rock rose theme on the outsides of the boxes is repeated on the packaging of the actual products. The liquid lipsticks come in frosty glass veils with red tops that are covered in tiny little roses.

IMG_4868

From left to right they are: Eclipse, Posh, and Jinx. Here are the swatches on my arm:

IMG_4869

As you can probably tell, the top to ones are metallic and the bottom one is matte. I have more of them coming in the post, so I’ll be making separate collective reviews of all of them soon, along with another line called Perleez.

Eclipse:

FullSizeRender-2

This beauty was given to me as a gift during the North American solar eclipse. I ordered some of their colourful hair dye and this was given to me as a promotion. I have to say that Lime Crime is very good at giving lipsticks away for free with purchases, and I really appreciate their willingness to give back to their fans. Not many companies are willing to do this. 

Eclipse is a deep metallic wine red, perfect for autumn. I have gotten tons of compliments on it, and it really goes well with all skintones. This one lasted a good 3-4 hours on me and only started smudging in the middle, more damp parts of my lips.

Posh:

FullSizeRender-3

Posh is a deep metallic halloween violet. I’m not the type who’ll celebrate halloween at all, but violet is on my of my top three favourite colours and since I just dyed parts of my hair purple, I wanted something to match. This one is consistent in colour payoff and longevity of Eclipse. I find them to be pretty consistent throughout the range. I had Red Hot as well, and it was my absolute favourite, but it got stolen off my desk at work. 

Jinx:

FullSizeRender-1

Jinx was one colour that didn’t really look the way the site portrayed it. It definitely looked more deep purple, than a muddy mauvy grey. At first I was disappointed but the colour has grown on me ever since, and the great thing is I can always mix up some colours to make it more purple. I will do some separate blogs on that in the future as well. This one, being matte, was a bit harder for me to get even application, especially on the upper lip. I’d imagine that it takes some getting used to and knowing just how much to apply at a time, as applying too much might just be the reason for my struggle. 

I forgot to mention that all of the Velvetines come with a doe foot applicator. Here are the links for the rest of the Metallics and the Matte ranges, if you’re interested in a purchase. 

I don’t find them to be super drying, but I would recommend, as I do with any liquid lipstick, that you clear your lips of any dry patches by using a good old sugar scrub. The nature of a liquid lipstick is that it will seep into the crack and creases and emphasise any dry patches, so with the awesome long wear of these liquid lipsticks, comes that one downfall. It’s still totally worth it though. I know a lot of people would not want to rock deep purples or dark chocolate browns, but luckily the brand has a huge variety of different colours in matte and metallic to choose from. 

That’s it from me, till my next order arrives.

Kailijumei Barbie Doll Powder Review

botom

Hello Ladies and Jellyspoons

Today I have a totally different product to review for you. It’s the famous Hong Kong branded lipstick by Kailijumei. These lipsticks come in classy red casings which operate the same as the Channel lipsticks in that you click it to open. It also comes with a little mirror attached to the side of the bullet. The lipstick product itself is what sells this brand in the it comes in a clear jelly like formula and it contains a tiny little flower and flakes of real 14k gold inside it. The clear product gives the lipstick a glass like appearance and it reminds me a lot of the forbidden rose in the west wing of The Beast’s castles in Beauty and the Beast.

One of my students at my former workplace gifted me one for teacher’s day and I was ecstatic about it, since they are not currently available in Korea as far as I am aware, and they’ve always had me intrigued. I got Barbie Doll Pink. This is what the product looks like in the casing:

IMG_3726.jpg

I really appreciate the slick design and the click to open function.

Here are some pictures that won’t really do the lipstick justice, because one really has to see it to fully take in its beauty:

IMG_3727IMG_3729IMG_3731

The product works the same way those dollar store lipsticks work in that it is heat activated and changes colour on the lips, but these are designed to have the same colour on everyone, and doesn’t change according to one’s mood. It also applies like a gloss but dries out like a tint and the colour takes a bit of time to develop on your lips.

This is what it looked like when I first applied it:

IMG_3733

It’s quite glossy and the distribution isn’t as even as I would’ve liked.

Here is an image taken 20 minutes after application:

FullSizeRender.jpg

The picture doesn’t really show the colour correctly and I’m struggling to get the right lighting in this monsoon weather, but I’d definitely say that the pictures on the net could be deceiving. It for sure didn’t come out as pink as I thought it would. I’d imagine it would look slightly different depending on the natural colour of your lips.

Would I repurchase? Yes, I’d like to try some of the other colours of which there are many. I would just like to add that these lipsticks have a vile jelly candle taste to them. I can’t even rightly describe it. It’s not as sweet as glycerine, but it has a similar franck taste to  it.

Overall I’d say it’s a fun product to try out and it’s definitely as beautiful as they claim if not more. As a lipstick in and of itself, without all the hoopla of the colour changing and the clear product, it leaves a lot to be desired.

That’s it from me, form a rainy Seoul.

Etude House Hydrogel Eyepatch

IMG_2971

Hello Everyone

I don’t know if all of you remember, but I’ve been sponsored by ‘n site called Amabie to review some amazing Taiwanese products and one of the products that I had received in the box was a beautifully ornate eye mask by a brand called Aeriaskin. I was so impressed with the mask that I was desperately trying to find something similar locally. I saw this at Etude House and off course I adore cats so I was immediately drawn to this. Much to my surprise I ended up looking like Batman rather than Catwoman. No, I am not complaining.

First off here is what it look likes when removed from the foil:

FullSizeRender-7

I don’t know if you can tell but it’s quite a thick collagen (gel like) cat shaped mask in a mould or container. It comes with a film on either side for protection, so it’s definitely quite fancy.

This is what it looked like after I had removed it:

FullSizeRender-6

And this is what it looked like on me face.

IMG_2975

I really felt more like a Batman than a Catlady, and ended up getting a lot of love on my instagram for posting this image, in which I felt so childish but in a good way.

The overall result of this mask is less puffy eyes; definitely less dark circles. The are the mask touched look plumbed up and the pores were smaller. I am super happy with the results of the mask, but I feel like the cosplay factor made it so much more worth it.

They retail for w3500 which isn’t the cheapest for a mask in Korea, but I’d still say it’s worth every cent and that you should definitely try it if you can get your hands on it.

That’s it from me.

Lush Empties Tag

IMG_3593

Hello Everyone

Yes, I’m doing another empties tag. You’ll have to forgive me for inundating you with them, but the spring cleaning has got me in over my head with empty containers that now need to get out of my apartment, because they’re driving me crazy. Luckily South Korea is very efficient on recycling so these will all (except the hair mask container which goes back to LUSH) will go straight to recycling.

My husband and I fell in love with LUSH about 2 years ago when we realised that it is animal cruelty free and their products claim to contain natural ingredients. I was cherry blonde at the time and wanted to systematically go lighter, but I gave up on that idea when I started studying again, and my tuition cost me more than my salary. With that being said, a lot of the products I’ll be reviewing for you today is focused on blonde hair maintenance so don’t be alarmed that I’m now a blue-black brunette and reviewing products for blonde hair.

  1. First up is Daddy-O.

daddyooo.jpg

Here are the site images, since my empty container doesn’t really do it justice.

I’ve decided to use the site’s images for their products since the empty containers don’t really show you what the product looks like.

Purple shampoo is for colour correction. If you’re naturally brunette and want to go blonde, you’ll almost always end up with a bit of orange or copper tones in your hair. Purple shampoo counteracts with the orange to neutralise the colour and make you look more naturally blonde. It’s scientific. The opposite colours of the colour wheel neutralise each other, the same way when I apply orange cream colour on my purple dark circles, they just about disappear. When I went blonde my hair definitely had a coppery tone to it that I didn’t like, and my husband has been going gray for a while now and sometimes gray hairs can go coppery as well, especially if you’ve coloured it. My hairdresser recommended this to us. It worked well for how long it lasted. It washes your hair really squeaky clean and it smells amazing, kind of like Fanta Grape but not in a tacky way. It is very purple. The water will wash out straight up purple which makes it magical in a way, since purple is my favourite colour. We repurchased twice and then we both just realised hey, $30 for a smallish bottle of shampoo is just not a price we want to keep paying, but that’s just Korea for you. All the foreign brands are way overpriced, so I’ll definitely get it again for my husband when we are in the States or home where it’s almost half the price per bottle.

Here’s a list of the ingredients:

Fresh Organic Lemon and Seaweed infusion; Sodium Lauryl Sulfate; Sodium Laureth Sulfate; Fresh Sea Water; Perfume; Cocamide MEA; Propylene Glycol; Glycol Cetearate; Fresh Organic Lime Juice; Extra Virgin Coconut Oil; Violet Leaf Absolute; Rose Absolute; Bermont Oil; Cananga Oil; *Limonene; Linalool; *Citronellol; Coumarin; Isoeugenol; Alpha Isomethyl Ionone; Benzyl Alcohol; Hexyl Cinnamal; Colour 42090; Colour 17200; Methylparaben; Propylparaben.

Would I repurchase? Probably not. I think it’s rather aggravating when a brand claims to be ‘natural’  and rigs their prices up because of that very claim, when it continues to use inorganic chemicals in their products. Would I recommend this to someone who doesn’t mind the chemicals and wants to maintain blonde hair without looking like a duracell battery? Yes, absolutely!

2. Next is Happy Happy Joy Joy.

Happy joy

I was recommend this conditioner because I struggle with dry tips. I must say I really liked this one. It smells citrusy which is one of my favourite smells in hair products. It’s quite a thick cream white product and it feels natural. I must say it’s not as super moisturizing as I would’ve like it to be, but I believe it’s also because I used it with Daddy-O which really does do a great job of getting rid of excess oils in the hair and removing natural and unnatural buildup. I used this along with my Marilyn hair mask, which ended up being a great combination over all.

Would I repurchase? Yes, I think I will buy this again when I’m home where they charge much less than here in Korea. It’s definitely not a product that needs to be used on blonde hair only. It’s more of a general moisturizing conditioner, so I’d be happy to use it again even though my hair is now permanently blue black.

Here are the ingredients:

Rose Water (Rosa centifolia), Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Almond Milk (Prunus dulcis),Propylene Glycol, Cetearyl Alcohol and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Cold Pressed Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Fragrance, Cetrimonium Bromide, Cetearyl Alcohol, Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara), Grapefruit Oil (Citrus paradisi), Orange Flower Absolute (Citrus Aurantium amara), Rosewood Oil (Aniba rosaeodora),Rose Oil (Rosa damascena), Glycerine, Tincture of Benzoin (Styrax benzoin), Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellol,*Limonene, *Linalool, *Citronellol. *Occurs naturally in essential oils

3. I then tried a different range and got told that the Fairly Traded Honey shampoo is a good one for brown hair.

Fairly traded honey

This was probably one of my favourite products by LUSH. I’m dead against any company that does unfair trading or supports child slavery so the ‘fairly traded’ part of the name really caught me. I also like honey and have long known of it’s health benefits. Ladies and Gentlemen, this comes with a price though. I spent $50 on a medium sized bottle of this stuff and I swiped my card expecting to pay the usually $28 of the Daddy-O shampoo. So when I got home and used the product and only much later realised that it ended up costing me, I had to reevaluate everything I loved about it. I loved the smell that is very much honey like and with an added earthy smell of the geranium oil and other oils they add to it. It’s quite sticky, but I think a fault that many people make is to use too much product, since it takes only about a teaspoon amount to froth up your whole head if you have short hair, and even with long hair you really should only be washing the roots, and it really does makes ones hair squeaky clean and free of build up.

I want to repurchase this so badly because it’s really nice, but the price point is just too high for me.

Here are the ingredients:

Fairly Traded Honey, Linseed Mucilage (Linum usitatissimum), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sunflower Lecithin (Lecithin), Lauryl Betaine, Geranium Oil (Pelargonium graveolens), Beeswax Absolute (Apis Mellifera), Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Bergamot Oil (Citrus Aurantium bergamia), *Citral, Geraniol, Lilial, Citronellol, *Limonene, *Linalool, *Benzyl Salicylate, *Eugenol, Benzyl Benzoate, *Farnesol, Hydroxycitronellal, Fragrance. *Occurs naturally in essential oils

4. Up next is another conditioner called American Cream. 

American Cream

This is a lovely conditioner and probably my favourite by Lush. It’s very creamy and has a sweet, almost old lady perfume sort of smell, but not in a bad way.  Strong hints of vanilla is what overpowers the smell for me, even though it has a ton of other ingredients as well. I found that it was quite moisturizing as well. It was also a more affordable purchase at close to $30 a bottle. I used this with both Daddy-O and Fairly Traded Honey, and it worked well with both, since both are really good cleansing shampoos and one would need good moisture after using them, especially if you have slightly dry tips.

I’m planning on repurchasing this in the future and using it once a week as a spoil, to my usual $5 conditioner. I don’t know if I’d justify using it every time though.

Here are the ingredients:

Honey Water (Aqua), Vanilla Pod Infusion (Vanilla planifolia), Propylene Glycol, Fresh Organic Oranges (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis), Cetearyl Alcohol and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Fresh Strawberries (Fragaria vesca),Fragrance, Lanolin, Cetrimonium Bromide, Cetearyl Alcohol, Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla Planifolia),Clary Sage Oil (Salvia sclarea), Lavender Oil (Lavandula augustifolia), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax tonkinensis pierre), *Linalool, Coumarin, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone.*Occurs naturally in essential oils

5. Last but not least Marilyn. 

Lush Marilyn.jpg

I wanted to get this for my short cherry blonde hair as my best friend has blonde hair and swears by this hair treatment. The product comes in a small black tub and costs closr to $30. It’s meant to be applied to dry hair, which to me makes one use a lot more product that one would with wet hair. You leave it in for 30minutes and then wash it out. I only got 4-5 uses out of this pot and my hair was pixie cut to a short chinese bob length. It smells absolutely amazing, with camomile being the strongest scent I could pick out of it. My hair felt amazingly soft and nourished after every use.

I would repurchase this if I were blonde, but right not my hair is blue black and I doubt whether I’d ever go blonde again before I’m grey. I enjoyed this product and was happy with it over all. I would recommend it anyone who can afford a good treatment on blonde hair.

Here are the ingredients:

Linseed Mucilage (Linum usitatissimum), Chamomile Infusion (Anthemis Nobilis and Chamomilla Recutita),Saffron Infusion (Crocus sativis), Cetearyl Alcohol and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Cetearyl Alcohol, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Olea europaea), Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum),Chamomile Oil (Anthemis nobilis), Soya Lecithin, *Citral,*Limonene, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.*Occurs naturally in essential oils

As you can probably tell all the ingredient lists are full of really great natural, organic elements but it also contains a ton of sulfates, parabens and alcohols which to me is a bit contradictory to their so called ‘we use fresh natural ingredients’ claim. I get that they didn’t say we ONLY use fresh natural ingredients, but I feel like a lot of their fans are duped into thinking their products are holistic and natural, which most definitely aren’t. It was only when I did some more research for my blog that I realised their shampoos are NOT sulfate free. That’s going to play a massive role in whether I ever purchase from them again or not, since I do feel a bit like I was played for the fool.

That’s it from me, folks. I’m sorry that it’s such a mouthful. Have you ever tried LUSH? How were your experiences?
