ACTUALLY ORGANIC 100% PURE MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL

 *Product was sent to me for my consideration, my review is genuine and my own opinion*

Hello gorgeous readers! I have the pleasure of introducing you to a new organic skincare brand, Actually Organic. The product that is being reviewed is their 100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil. This nourishing oil can be used on skin, hair and nails. Read my thoughts on the product below and then head on over to Actually Organic to shop and browse the collection. Stay Beautiful! XOXO

 

For milennia argan oil has been cherished in Morocco for its healing properties. Today, beauty lovers and scientists have also discovered its restorative benefits for hair, skin, and nails. Our Argan Oil has been sourced directly from sustainable growers and cold-pressed to keep the oil pure and unchanged.  

 

 

  


Formula: The consistency of the oil is fluid and light without any weird odor or fragrance. It does not leave a greasy residue and absorbs rather well, although my skin tends to be dry this time of the year. So if your skin type is oily, you can still use it, only be mindful to apply a few drops. For application, simply pump out a drop or two, warm it up between your palms and then massage gently on skin for about a minute. You can also apply the oil to splits ends or scalp after shampooing. For me, I saw the quickest results on my nails and cuticles. My nails are super thin and brittle! After about a week's use, with some light soaking, my nails look healthier, thicker and shinier. On my face, it adds hydration and a soft glow. If your looking for a decent skin care line that is cruelty-free and uses organic, quality ingredients, I highly recommend that you give Actually Organic a try. Let me know what you think, in the comment section after trying out the brand.

L'OREAL COLOR VIBRANCY INTENSIVE SHAMPOO/CONDITIONER AND MASK

 *product was sent to me as part of an Influenster campaign, my review is genuine and my own opinion*

Hello gorgeous readers! Influenster sent me a L'Oreal Vox Box to test out and included were; Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo, Conditioner and Post-Color Repair Mask. The products are meant to extend the life of color-treated hair. The box arrived just in time after my color job so I was really able to demonstrate the product's effect on color treated hair. Read my thoughts below. Stay Beautiful! XOXO

Shampoo + Conditioner: Repair dry, damaged hair instantly. Formula protects the hair fibers and preserves color. Post-Color Repair Mask; Use after shampoo 2X weekly to nurture and maintain color-treated hair.

  
Formula: Shampoo + Conditioner. Both the shampoo and conditioner have a rich, thick formula and a fresh, fragrance. The fragrance is on the heavy side but but it's pleasing. I love that neither one makes my hair fall out or weak, as sometimes these shampoo types do. Also, the conditioner untangles my curly hair quickly and with ease. Since I had already just colored my hair, the bright effect was immediately noticeable, my hair was super blue-black under bright lighting. Post-Color Mask: The repair mask helps with dry ends and lack luster hair. Overall, my curly locks were defined, frizz free, shiny, healthy looking and super shiny. My only concern with this and other department store or pharmacy brands are the cruelty-free status. I'm not sure what their status is of now because I have not been keeping up with those things for awhile. I have been knee-deep in research papers and focusing on my work, which is unfortunate. One day I hope to hear that all brands completely stop absurd animal testing. This is my honest opinion of the collection and the products seem to work nicely. Let me know what you think in the comment section once you try the collection out.

Sahara Dune, Aztec Gold, Essaouria Bronze, Amazonian Earth .
 

Honolulu Pink Matte
 
 Color Crush Matte Lipstick: Formulated with high-purity pigments for intense color. Nourishing, long-lasting finish. Enriched with Community Trade Brazil Nut Oil and beeswax

Nevada Gold

Eye Colour Sticks: Available in 4 shades: Black, Gold, Bronze and Purple. High-definition metallic eyeshadow stick in gold. 100% vegetarian. Enriched with babassu oil and beeswax.

Formula: Limited Edition Eye Shadow Quads: With high pigmentation and a silky smooth application, different types of long wearing eye looks can be achieved --- plus the individual pans can be removed to mix -n- match for customization. Each quad contains, highlighter, base, and shadows, both matte and shimmery, with a mini-guide on how to, shown on the outside box cover. The formula is semi-sheer to rich and can be applied dry, or wet, for more intense looks. There's minimal creasing and no fallout! Also, the cases are modern, sleek and include a high-quality compact mirror.

Eye Colour Sticks: These creamy eye sticks are super easy to glide over the lids and are comfortable to wear. I was sent the Nevada Gold shade, which is SUPER high intensity micro-fine shimmer gold with a taupe base. Perfect to be used as a highlighter during the holidays for glamorous looks, and since there are no chunks of glitter, it's quite sophisticated for any age. It'll be fun to play around with several color combinations to create your own personal style.

Color Crush Matte: Lipsticks: While matte lipsticks make some girls nervous, the formula here is smooth and creamy. The lipstick does not dry out and has long-wear time. Also, it does not bleed or irritate the sensitive lip area. Honolulu Pink, shown above, is such a natural shade. If you're into the modern, nude pink lip but are afraid of pink colors, you'll appreciate how pretty this one is.

Honey Bronze Drops of Sun: Honey Bronze has a liquid-type formula and works mostly as a tinted skin product. I have really fair skin and was afraid to apply it on, however, it absorbs quickly and does not "stain". I used a slight amount only and had to work it rather quickly onto my cheeks in order not to have it streak. The result was a warm, sun-kissed look on my skin. Perfect for winter time weather when skin tends to become more dull in appearance. Your friends will think that you just came back from a weekend island getaway!
