Yesterday, I went to Holland and Barrett for a wonder, and my eyes immediately went to the pomegranate range by Dr organic. I decided I needed to revert back to my organic natural shampoos, as recently I have been using drugstore brands and it hasn't done anything for my hair.
These shampoos don't contain any harsh chemicals, I used to use "Naked" but I didn't stick with it, not sure why - they were actually really good. Check my previous post on shampoo cleansing ingredients to avoid. FYI: Don't expect natural shampoos to lather up as much as chemical based ones, this doesn't mean that it doesn't clean it properly, because it does. These were £4.99 each.

My eyes then went towards this face cream, it's supposed to be anti aging. This was £7.99, quite reasonable. I can make my own toner, exfoliator and mask from pomegranate but a moisturiser? I'm not so sure! :)

The texture of this cream looks rich, but it isn't. It's actually REALLY light. It's actually not that moisturising at all. Maybe even a bit too light for my dry skin. The finish of it is incredibly matt, it's quite similar to a vanishing cream. The most amazing thing about this cream, is the smell, it smells divine - like pomegranates and roses not a disgusting "herb" smell like other "natural" creams. I may mix it with something....
Today I went to Sally hair and beauty in Picadilly London. I have decided to dye my hair back to it's natural colour. I have played around with my hair quite a lot within the past few months, so decided enough was enough. I don't want to have to dye it again, also I have found with drugstore hair dyes, the colour fades really quickly and it seems to take a red/copper tinge which is quite common with Mediterranean hair.
I opted for light brown ash, however this is more like a medium brown. The medium brown dye looked black so I skipped that. It's important for the hair dye to be from the ash family to take away from the red/copper which I despise! I CAN'T stand it on me, it just looks off key with my colouring. All of this is for 1 application, it cost under £10.
I then marched into Superdrug and got some baby lotion, I got it for my body but may apply it to my face too, does anybody else apply this on their face? I got the white tube to carry in my bag, I have never used it before. I love the smell of baby products! :)
I also picked up a lipgloss in pink moon by L'oreal from their glam shine moonlight range. It's a beautiful baby pink with some mauve/silver shimmer. I love it, I couldn't quite capture it but it has tiny blue reflects in it. It's like a more pigmented version of Mac baby sparks dazzleglass but with no sparkles.
