Three things I find myself buying over and over and over again

Vissa produkter känns som att de tar slut redan innan de påbörjats. Varför? För att de blir använda varje dag, och de är alldeles för bra för att bytas ut mot något annat när de väl tar slut. Så du fortsätter köpa, och köpa, och köpa.. Här är tre av mina upprepade köp.

Some products seem to end before they’re even started. Why? Well, because they get used nearly every day, and it’s far too good to be exchanged for something else once you run out. So you keep buying, and buying, and buying.. Here are three of my repeated buys.

Desert Essence Natural Refreshing Tea Tree Oil Mouthwash

A super effective alcohol free mouthwash with antiseptic tea tree oil. Tastes very mild, almost no mint at all and kind of sweet (while sugar free) but it KILLS any trace of garlic breath. Plus it’s vegan. You’re welcome.

Lernberger Stafsing Dryclean Dark

Dry shampoo for kings and queens! I often find that dry shampoos 1. stink, 2. don’t really absorb oils well and 3. feel like brushing corn starch through the hair. This one gives insane volume, matte texture and smells fine. Plus it’s dark which makes it look less powdery in darker hair.

Depend Nagellacksremover Supersnabb

Nail polish remover from Swedish Depend. Relatively cheap, gets rid of glitters somewhat fast and doesn’t contain acetone. Doesn’t make my fingers wanna curl up and fall off, that’s a good thing, right?

Maria Nila Colour Palett Colour Refresh 7.40 Bright Copper

En av mina bästa hårkompisar på sistone har varit Maria Nila Colour Refresh i färgen Bright Copper. En knalligt gultonad hårinpackning som ger liv åt koppartoner i håret. Den är inte tomteröd vilket jag var orolig för, nej, bara smickrande lejonfärgad. Jippi! Jag har en mjuk övertoning i min hårfärg så de knalliga topparna blir ännu mer fantastiska med en extra färgboost som denna.

Vegansk, svenskproducerad, sulfat- och parabenfri, inte silikonfri. Tynger inte ner mitt hår eller får det att kännas sunkigt. Applicera i fuktigt hår (eller i torrt som jag gör, den blir ännu starkare så) och låt sitta i 5-10 minuter (eller en halvtimme som jag gör, haha) och tvätta sen ur. Den försvinner efter ett par tvättar på mig, men den skulle troligen sitta längre på någon med ljust hår. Finns att shoppa på Eleven!

 

One of my best hair friends lately has been the Maria Nila Colour Refresh in the colour Bright Copper. A bright yellow toned hair mask that gives life to coppery tones in the hair. It’s not santa red which I was afraid that it would be, no, it’s just a flattering lion yellow. Yay! My hair has a soft shade shifting going so the bright ends look even more awesome with a fresh colour boost like this one.

Vegan, produced in Sweden, sulphate and paraben free, not silicone free. Doesn’t weigh my hair down or make it feel unfresh. Apply to damp hair (or dry as I do, it gets even stronger that way) and let it sit for 5-10 minutes (or half an hour as I do, lol) then wash it out. It disappears after a few washes on me, but maybe it would stay longer in a light hair. Available through Europe at Eleven!

New hair!

Roger at Cybtekk did it again! He lightened my hair a shade or two and dyed it in a coppery gold tone that fades down to bright coppery ends.

Review: Original Mineral (O&M) Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray

Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray från Original Mineral (eller O&M som de kallas) är en stylingprodukt för håret som med hjälp av Australiskt havssalt, Provitamin B5, Aloe Vera, Nattljusolja, grönt te, olivlövextrakt och den inhemska växten Lilli Pilli ska ge textur, stadga, UV-skydd och samtidigt ge glans utan att torka ut håret. Spraya den i håret och låt torka antingen på egen hand eller med värmeverktyg, fungerar både på handdukstorkat och torrt hår. Kostar 239 kr och går att köpa på utvalda salonger.

+ Ger stadga och definition likt en hårspray
+ Inte klistrig/stel i håret
+ Spraymunstycket skapar “moln” och inte blöta pölar
+ Får inte håret att kännas smutsigare under dagens gång
+ Klarar touch ups utan problem
+ Dryg
+ Ergonomisk och snygg flaska
+ Klassisk lyxig salongdoft

- Ganska dyr
- Innehåller ett silikon (om du ser det som ett problem)

Betyg: 5/5
