Yves Rocher Shampoo traitant anti-pelliculaire - Anti Dandruff Shampoo | Review

A while back I was cordially invited by the brand Yves Rocher for a botanical facial massage and for an 'introduction' about the brand itself. You can view the blog post about the experience hereI have already reviewed one of my current lipstick obsessions which you can find the review here.


It is quite hard for me to find shampoos which do not irritate my scalp. I don't have dandruff as such but I do really tend to get quite a good amount of build up on my scalp which means I have to wash my hair every other day, which, takes quite a lot of effort if you have long hair.




A good cleansing shampoo which doesn't strip my scalp of moisture and natural oils, is a must for me. Otherwise I would end up fiddling with my hair leaving it quite oily and irritated.


This shampoo is formulated for dandruff, however, it is gentle enough to be used on all hair types. It doesn't contain any silicones or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate which tend to irritate my scalp. It is also Paraben free. It contains organically grown nasturium extract,  which acts as a botanical cleansing base. The shampoo has an easily biodegradable formula.

What I love about this shampoo is that it removes the build up on my scalp very effectively and leaves it feeling clean. I would suggest this shampoo to anyone but especially to people who have an itchy and/or flaky scalp.

And what's more, Yves Rocher are offering 50% off when buying a second hair care product! Hurry up as the offer is valid only until the 10th of November!

Huge Makeup Haul (MAC, Urban Decay, Benefit, essence, Jo Malone and much more) + Swatches

So, finally I the Huge Makeup video is up and you can find it linked below:



I have been on a makeup ban for around 5 months and I really did break my bank account... and I am determined that it will be quite some time before I do another makeup haul. Below are the photos and the swatches of the products!





Notes: 
The essence of charm.  Peonies in voluptuous bloom, exquisitely fragile.  Flirtatious with the juicy bite of red apple and the opulence of jasmine, rose and gillyflower.  Mingling with the sensuality of soft, blush suede.  Luxurious and seductive.

Urban Decay Primer Potion | Review

Urban Decay is a brand which I honestly desperately which was available in Malta along with several others like MAC and Sephora and Nars and others. If you are into makeup I am pretty sure you heard about the Naked palette range. I have the original one and now I am dying to try out the Naked 3 palette. 

Last year, when I was in the UK for IMATS I managed to get my hands on the Naked palette from Debenhams. This palette came with a small trial size of the Primer Potion. 


I wanted to try this much raved product for ages and well since it isn't cheap, I thought it was a good idea to try it out. It is actually a very good eye primer. It has this kind of creamy although not entirely creamy, consistency which kind of sets to a somewhat dry finish. 


It holds up pretty well and the eyeshadows really sit well on it. I find that the eyeshadows are more vibrant and saturated with the primer. Does it crease? Well, let me just get it straight. In the humid, sunny, sweaty summer months that we have in Malta, it will crease at some point but not like at once, more likely after several hours.  To top it off I really have oily eyelids and I do get a shiny face quicker.

There are several shades of this kind of primer I believe but this is the kind of nude shade. Would I repurchase it again? I am not quiet sure to be honest. There are a couple of eyeshadow primers which I want to try. But I strongly suggest trying it out, although it is a bit pricey.

Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipstick in Rose Cocktail | Review

Finally the transition from summer to autumn has begun! Although it is still quite hot there is certainly a cool breeze about the air. Temperatures are starting to drop and we all know what follows...chapped lips! A handbag staple for me is of course, lip balm. As I have already mentioned in previous posts I am not a huge fan of lipstick, however I do love my tinted lip balms.

I fell in love with the lip product at once. The packaging is quite sleek and elegant which I kind of love.



The lipstick itself is made from 100% cherry oil, with which I am currently obsessed! The cherry oil within the balm helps to nourish the lips when it is applied and it also lends the balm such an appealing pigment! Cherry oil has the capacity of refracting light and it is also enriched with Omega 6 and 9 which both act as natural sources of protection and nutrition. Having dry lips myself, this is quite the ideal product for me during the cold season and sometimes it is quite the life saver.





The lipstick glides smoothly and effortlessly on the lips giving them a very natural glossy tint which makes the lipstick ideal for everyday use but also for night time as it doesn’t require a lot of technique to apply. Moreover, the colour itself doesn’t feather out although you do have to apply the product after a couple of hours. But being it a somewhat of a lipbalmy product one would expect that. 




What is there more to love? The Price. Currently at 30% off – 11.20 euros. I am definitely in love with the product and it is a definite repurchase.
