Avon Moroccan Argan Oil hair care

Hi dolls,

Who hasn't heard of Moroccan Oil hair care products? I first heard about Moroccan Argan Oil a while back and then last year it kinda blew up and EVERYONE was using it. I like the Argan oil products I use at the moment and it works PERFECT but I saw this going really cheap in the Avon catalogue and HAD to try them out. So I got the whole set. Unfortunately I haven been able to use these yet because before they got delivered I ended up getting my hair put into single plait extensions for my sisters BFFs wedding. 

These items came with my C15 haul and you can see that here.

So what did I get?...

Shampoo (250ml)
Catalogue price - £1.10
Conditioner (250ml)
Catalogue price - £1.10

Catalogue price - £2.20

Leave-in treatment
Catalogue price - £5.50

Bonus Item

Heat Protection Styler (100ml)
Catalogue price - £2.50
I got this cos I'm trying to look after my hair when using heat (which I never do) but I'm really trying to get better a practising what I preach. Its in this post cos it fall sunder the hair care umbrella.

Once my hair has been taken out and needs a good wash and treatment I will be using all these items and will defo blog about it.

What are your thoughts on Argan oil? What are your favourite hair care products?

Avon C15

Hi dolls,

Its that a time again when I share with you what I bought from Avon.

I apologise that this post is up late (Ive had this stuf for about 3 weeks) and for the picture quality. I chose the wrong time to start taking pics by daylight cos before I knew it had started getting dim so I had to use my flash.

Glycerine hand and nail cream
Catalogue price - £1.25
Glycerine hand and nail cream
Catalogue price - £3.50

The Christmas AVON CARE items are starting to appear so I couldn't pass up the chance to get the limited edition packaging.

Now if you've followed my blog for a while you will know how much I love this hand cream. I always have one in my handbag. Its defo one of my most used items. As Freddie Prinze Jnr said in FRIENDS about hand cream "keeps the hands young".

Colour Style lipstick
Deal: Buy one lipstick and get one free and get a free cosmetic purse
Catalogue price - £5

Now I was so disappointed when this cam. I LOVE Very Berry and the purse but I ordered a darker pink (Pink Kiss) colour and they sent me this peptobismal looking frosty pink (palest pink) although it was labelled Pink Kiss :( Its AWFUL there is NO WAY I could pull off this colour. So I'm gonna have to give it to someone. 

I will say though that they are a good quality lipstick, very creamy and not drying at all. And the staying power is good also.
L-R: Very Berry and Pink Kiss (AKA palest pink)

SuperShock gel eyeliner pencil - Blackberry 
Catalogue price - £1.25

I dont know who created gel liner and then thought to put it in pencil form but I LOVE them. Gel liner lasts for so long, never smudges and doesnt drop after a being applied for a little while. 


Spectra Lash
Catalogue price - £5 (half price)
Everytime I see this in the catalogue I've always wanted it but never wanted to pay £10 for it. It was half price in this campaign so I got it. I haven't tried it yet but I'm hoping the 3 settings are gonna be noticeable when I do eventually use it.

Protecting Lip Balm 
Catalogue price - £3.20

I'm all about keeping my lips moisturised especially now as its getting colder. I'm always looking at trying different products. I haven't used this properly yet to have a full opinion on it. But I'll be sure to update on what I think.
And its also in the Christmas packaging :D
MORE nail polish. My nail polish ban lasted about a week haha, I cant help it I love nail polishes.

 Nailwear pro+ - Berry Shimmer
Catalogue price - £3

Mosaic Effect Top Coat - Gold Glimmer
Catalogue price - £6

Mosaic Effect Top Coat - Mosaic Mica
Catalogue price - £6

I'm very impressed with my nail polish purchases. Berry Shimmer needs about 2 coats to be fully opaque. I just love the colour.

I have become really fond of the Mosaic nail effect polishes. And if they keep coming up with great colours I will be a happy bunny.

Secret Fantasy EDT
Catalogue Price - £6

As I've said before Im not the best at describing scents. I know what my nose likes and it likes this perfume VERY MUCH. It has a really sweet smell to it. Will definitely be re-purchasing this bad boy again.

I did buy some hair care items but I wanna do a separate post on it, why? You can see that post here.

Maybelline Falsies Mascara

Hey dolls,


So a few weeks back I went to France for some alcohol purchasing for my sisters best friends wedding. So while on the ferry I decided to have a mosey round Duty Free. I looked around the make up section (as you do) and they had all these deals on mascaras, now I wasn't looking at buying a new mascara until I saw the deal they had on.

So in the box you got 2 mascaras and an eye kohl pencil. All for £11.95...TOTAL BARGAIN. If you were to buy each of these separately you'd be looking at paying a maximum of £21.97 or minimum £18.97. I had maximum and minimum price cos I couldn't find this exact pencil liner or the price. So I had to base it off of other liners they do. Either way it was a pretty good deal.

This mascara is one of my favourites and does what it says on the tin by making your eyelashes all nice and long.

I haven't tried the pencil yet but I'm sure if its the same quality of the mascara I'm sure I'll like it.

What mascaras do you like?
