Review: L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil VoxBox

A few weeks ago I received my L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil VoxBox from Influenster.  I was very excited to be trying more haircare products! 🙂  The box contained three products from L’Oréal Paris:

  • Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo
  • Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Conditioner
  • Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum


Review: HASK Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Hair Care Collection

I recently got the opportunity to review the HASK Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Hair Care  Collection.  I was already familiar with the HASK brand but had never actually used it myself.   My local beauty stores sell it and I’ve been tempted to purchase it a couple of times based on the smell alone!

I was sent 4 items to review:

  • Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Shampoo
  • Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Conditioner
  • Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Deep Conditioner
  • Macadamia Shine Oil Treatment

I also got a HASK mini hairbrush as a little extra! 🙂


The macadamia oil range is aimed at people who have dry, damaged or over-processed hair.  Well, luckily enough for me (!!) my hair is all three!  I can have my hair cut and by the time it comes around to the next wash, it can be full of split ends, dry and brittle.  I always love hair products that allow my hair to feel smooth, look silky and smell delicious!

I’ve used the HASK Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner three times now and I’ve fallen in love with it so much!  The shampoo lathers up really well and I’ve found that a little does go a long way.  The conditioner is really smooth and feels luxurious but I have had to apply this liberally to ensure it goes through all of my hair.  Both smell absolutely amazing!  Adam even went into the bathroom afterwards and asked if I had been lighting candles in there.

Before blowdrying, I applied the Macadamia Shine oil Treatment through my hair, avoiding the roots as advised.  Once dry my hair felt so smooth, even without straightening it! The ends definitely seemed to be tamed and smoother than usual too.

The Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Deep Conditioner comes in a single use packet.  I kept this on for 10 minutes and it seriously worked wonders on my hair!  It made it smoother than ever!

I’ve really enjoyed reviewing this hair care range and I’m actually looking forward to buying some of the other HASK products as they do have some other ranges that I think will be great for my unruly hair! Check out their full range here 🙂

Instanatural Product Review #1


I was recently given the opportunity to review 3 products from Instanatural.  As with make-up, I tend to go in and out of different phases with skincare products; sometimes I don’t use any, sometimes I try and use everything available and sometimes it can be a mixture.  For the last few months, I have only been using make-up wipes to clean my face before I get into bed.  I can hear you all telling me off now….I know what I should use, I just don’t because it’s quicker to use a make-up wipe!

The Price of Beauty

Over the years, I’ve had periods of buying different kinds of beauty products; budget, expensive, organic & handmade. Each time I try these different products, I either like them or I don’t. I suppose I go through phases of using them and find I want to switch for no clear reason. I’m not sure why I do this, I just do!

Just as we left the UK, I had fallen into the habit of buying the same products and even brought a couple of month’s supply of make-up over to the States with me. I like using products that I know I like. I sometimes get a bit nervous of change, especially when it comes to make-up. Am I going to be too pale? Do I look like an Oompa-Loompa? Will it dry out my skin? anyway, a lot of questions are asked!

So… I ran out of my UK supplies and needed to buy some more make-up. We are also in the process of trying new beauty/skincare products that we have never had access too. As much as I would love to spend $10 on a designer hand soap and body wash, we are trying to spend as little as possible at the moment. The following products are my favourites of the ones I have tried so far and I wanted to share them with you! Some are available in the UK too 🙂
