Goldwell Dualsenses Rich Repair Thermo Leave-in Conditioner

Not too long ago I was trialling a shampoo and conditioner that left my hair extremely dry and damaged. Despite the products stating they were to “repair” already dry hair, I seemed to have had a completely opposite reaction. My hair became so dry and knotty (even while using the conditioner) that not even a Tangle Teezer could get through it. It was upsetting and after 3 or 4 attempts at sticking to the products I decided I needed help from the outside in the form of a leave-in treatment just so I could put my hair into a somewhat presentable state. I had previously tried Goldwell’s Rich Repair shampoo and conditioner samples while travelling and found them to be too rich for my normal hair, so when this damage started occurring I instantly thought back to the Dualsense Rich Repair range as a potential solution.

I reached for the Goldwell Dualsenses Rich Repair Thermo Leave-In Treatment as a quick spray-in solution. Did it help me? My review tells all.  Continue Reading

L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Pencil Eyeliner

Brown eyeliner is one of my essential day-to-day makeup items. Having fair, olive skin, green/hazel eyes and brown hair means I can get away with most coloured eyeliners but I prefer a dark brown worn along my top lash line to give my lashes a thicker, fuller look. During the day I like a pencil eyeliner that has lots of pigment, in a creamy formula that can be smudged before it sets in place. L’Oreal Paris’ Colour Riche Le Smokey is one of the brands best selling eyeliners so I put it to the test to see if it can meet my needs.

This eyeliner comes in a variety of colours including black, grey, violet and the one I’m reviewing for you, 204 Brown Fusion.  Continue Reading
