Timotei Pure Shampoo Review

Why did you buy this shampoo?

I bought it because I recently got micro ring extensions in my hair and they require a shampoo with no sulfates. I was recommended this one by my hairdresser as it contains 0% Silicone’s, 0% Parabens and 0% colourants! You would be surprised at how much rubbish is in shampoo these days. I needed a ‘natural’ shampoo so it doesn’t damage the micro rings in my hair. 

What is it like compared to other non natural shampoos?

It is clear in colour and feels more runny than the ‘normal’ shampoos I would use such as Herbal Essences, for example. It has a citrus, tropical type smell which I was surprised at as it is a natural shampoo. I can’t rub this shampoo vigorously on my hair because of my extensions, but it doesn’t seem to foam up just as much as a normal shampoo would.

Does it clean your hair properly?

Yes, yes, YES! I have to admit that I was worried it might not clean my hair properly, I don’t know why, I guess it was because I thought, ‘there is nothing in this, it won’t work!’ It actually really does clean your hair properly, if even better than my normal shampoos! Here is a photo of my hair freshly washed using this shampoo. Notice how clean my roots look!

What is the price?

It costs £2.99 from Super Drug, So I certainly am not complaining!

Is there a conditioner?

Yes, I recently tried the conditioner in the ‘Pure’ brand for highlighted hair, and it was so silky soft and really moisturised my hair. I will be purchasing more of this!

Is there only a ‘Normal to Greasy’ option?

Yes, I looked for a ‘dry’ option as my hair gets very dry and there is none, this is the only option I have found so far. There is a shampoo and conditioner in one but I don’t like using these mixed types all through my hair.

What would you rate it out of 10?

8/10

What is your over all opinion?

I really like this product and I am glad I found it. I will use it even after my hair extensions are taken out as it is bound to be a lot better for your hair as it is ‘natural,’ as well as dead cheap! The bottle is a big size for the price but it is quite runny in texture and so you may use it up quicker than a normal shampoo.I also think it would be great if they brought out a ‘dry hair’ option instead of just the ‘normal to greasy’ one as not everyone’s hair is suitable for it.

I hope you all enjoyed this review! Leave me some feedback, it would be much appreciated! Have you tried this out? What did you think of it? x

Mac ‘Well Dressed’ Powder blush review

Image

Why did I purchase this product?

I was looking a blusher for a long time, and didn’t have a clue what one to go for, as I haven’t really cared much about blusher in the past. As it’s getting into the colder months I think it’s nice to have a little glow on the cheeks so this is why I’m reviewing it now! 

How much is it?

It is quite pricey at £18. I bought it in Dublin which was in euros and it came to around 25 euros!

What is the colour like?

It’s a very subtle pink colour which is great for a natural look that the cold weather would give you. If you like bright coloured cheeks, this won’t be for you. It is subtle but build-able to a certain amount. It has a shimmery sheen to it that gives a little bit of extra texture to your makeup. It is good for a natural pink cheek look or can be a shimmery party number depending on how you want it. Here is a picture with me wearing it on the apples of my cheeks. (Excuse my face being so close…) As you can see it looks natural but I have made it noticeable.

What is the texture like?

The texture is so soft it feels like velvet! It does feel quite luxurious, but what else can you expect from MAC? It doesn’t look cakey on the cheeks either which is why it looks so natural. Here is a photo with it swatched on my very pale wrist! It does look very natural and see through here, but it does look different over foundation.

Is it worth the money?

I would say, yes it is worth the money. It is expensive but you get what you pay for! If you want a natural looking blusher that is build-able and looks professional and will last you a long time, I would go for this one. Cheaper versions can crumble and you end up not getting the full use out of them, but with this one the packaging is superb and will hold in place forever. 

What skin type is it suitable for?

I would say it is suitable for a lot of skin types. I am very pale and I always wear foundation, but if I didn’t I know it would look lovely on my pale skin as well. I think if you are very tanned you might want a slightly more pigmented colour as this one is natural looking and the pink might go unnoticed on some tanned skin. 

What would you rate it out of 10?

This blusher gets a 10/10 from me because it is exactly what I like in a blusher. It is natural, buildable, shimmery and so soft on the skin! I would buy this again 100 percent. Below there is an image that shows the colour of this blush well.

I hope you all enjoyed this review and now you can all have those pink cheeks for the cold winter weather :)! Check out this product here if you are interested! x
