The best hair products!!
Let me just start off by saying @olaplex is Amazing!! ! I bought N°3,4,5,6,7 and use it as a once a week routine. My Hair feels absolutely amazing! It is pricey, but worth my money! There all just beyond amazing! My favorite of course is Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 it’s sooo good I need 10 bottles to stock up! . . I definitely recommend these products! It worked wonders for my hair which is dyed, and highlighted often, styled daily with tools, so gets very dry! My hair is softer, shiny, and looks a lot healthier because I haven’t had much breakage! . . When using No3 I use once week and leave it on overnight or couple hours all depends!! I typically wash my hair every 3 days because I color my hair I don’t want the color or highlights to fade! . . No. 3 Hair Perfector is not a conditioner, it’s an at-home treatment that contains the same active ingredient found in all professional Olaplex products! This formula is made to work with every hair type, providing real, structural repair that works from within! . No. 4 Shampoo repairs and protects hair from everyday stresses—including damaged hair, split ends, and frizz—by re-linking broken bonds. No.4 is color-safe and proven to reduce breakage and strengthen all types of hair! . No. 5 Bond Conditioner is for all hair types and leaves hair easy to manage, shiny, and healthier with each use. It is color-safe, leaves hair stronger than ever, and benefits all hair types and textures! . No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme is excellent for all hair types—including colored and chemically-treated hair. No. 6 strengthens, hydrates, moisturizes, and speeds up blow dry times while smoothing and eliminating frizz for up to 72 hours! . Olaplex No. 7 repairs, strengthens, and hydrates all hair types. It dramatically increases shine, softness, and color vibrancy, while minimizing flyaways and heat protection up to 450°F/ 230°C. It works on all hair types and textures! . #olaplex #olaplextreatment

Beware of this awful cleanser!
I’d rather get coal than Drunk Elephant’s Beste No. 9 jelly cleanser. It’s a facial cleanser meant for all skin types (since drunk elephant’s “philosophy” is that there are “no skin types.”) that is a jelly/gel consistency without any foaming or bubbles or any evidence of washing. It does leave an awful artificial cantaloupe taste and scent on your skin AND leaves a weird film of stickiness no matter how hard or long you wash. It claims to wash your face. I claim that the glycerin sticks to your skin and causes irritation and breakouts. It’s also extremely drying. I would highly NOT recommend this cleanser unless you are “drunk elephant for life” or whatever that works if you are 1 out of 10 people. It’s $32 for a 5oz tube and you can get a way better deal with the Cerave Hydrating Cleanser which is $15 for 12oz CeraVe - Travel Size Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin. There is no competition with this cleanser, it’s that bad... If you have sensitive skin STAY AWAY!!! I’m giving it a 1 out of 5 stars since it comes in packaging that I don’t hate. Nothing else.

about Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Face Cream . I have really fond memories of the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream. It has such a dreamy scent and light creamy texture. It’s one of those simple yet really nice all around formulas. . This night cream comes housed in the most stunning cobalt blue glass jar. I’m seriously so in love with the color. The texture of this is also light and creamy. It’s airy and light kind of like a whipped texture but it’s really more of a light cream. I always think of whipped creams as having air pockets in them and this one doesn’t. I actually prefer non-whipped so its perfect for me. When I first touched this I thought there’s no way this could be moisturizing enough for a night cream. I was wrong. It actually kept my skin supple and moist all night long. Yet it was really light and doesn’t feel greasy or heavy. So well done Fresh Beauty . This has a light fresh scent with a peach tone. As peach leaf and lotus are the star ingredients I would say that makes sense. Sacred Lotus makes it’s way into a fair amount of skincare. Have you ever seen one? It’s truly a stunning flower as well. Lotus is an antioxidant (hello flavonoids), firms, tightens and soothes plus it helps purify (natural AHAs like hibiscus). Peach leaf is full of vitamins and minerals. I think if you’re looking for a nice light night cream that hydrates and renews then this is for you. It’s not complicated or fussy. You’ll get some restorative antioxidants while you sleep 😴

The Littles by Drunk Elephant
The Littles is a group of mini skincare products by Drunk Elephant to give you a little taste of majority of their line to improve your skin with clean ingredients and without the Suspicious 6. The textures vary in this from lightweight eye creams to gel serums and oils. I adore this set but feel like $90 is still really expensive for it because it’s solely mini versions of the products. Some of these products I’d repurchase and others I would not. Here are some of my favorites: 🧡C-Tango- A lightweight cream for the eyes. I find this very hydrating and it’s packed with other good ingredients to maintain that sensitive area. 💛Virgin Marula Oil- A lightweight oil that packs a punch. loaded with antioxidants, this hydrated without breaking out my combo skin. Before this, I was scared of oils and had misconceptions about them but this is stunning. 💙B-Hydra- A gel serum that’s extremely hydrating and brightening. This is something I like to mix with a moisturizer but works on its own as well. Stunning. Would and have repurchased. 💚Protini- My favorite moisturizer. Lightweight gel consistency that plumps and hydrates skin flawlessly for morning and night. I adore this and have purchased again. 💕TLC Framboos- An acid mix meant to help smooth and resurface skin. Good for acne, fbis should fight it on a surface and deeper level due to the AHA and BHA mix. This is severely expensive and one I would not repurchase. C-Firma is one I prefer in the mini compared to the large size. This oxidizes quickly which makes it less effective so I’d never buy a full size. I also don’t love Umbra Tinte. For me, it feels sticky and I prefer a matte finish sunscreen. The Beste cleanser is pretty good but again not my favorite ever. It’s fun to use but a little drying and doesn’t add much to skin while cleansing. I’d give this 4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ DRUNK ELEPHANT - The Littles Set
DRUNK ELEPHANT-The Littles Set
Drunk Elephant LALA RETRO WHIPPED CREAM. 🐘 This cream contains a blend of 6 African oils of which a few are Marula, baobab and ximenia which help to restore, soothe and quench the skin. 🐘 This cream also has passion fruit and fermented green tea to help brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines. 🐘 I was a bit worried about using this because it claims to be good for dry, dull skin that needs an overhaul of which I don’t fit into any of those categories. I started using this because it was included in the littles kit otherwise if I was reading online and had to choose between this and the Protini this would not have been the one that I would have selected. 🐘 I’m glad this was the one in the littles though because it made me use it and I have to say it’s the best face cream I’ve ever used. I get a bit bored with using the same creams but I just love applying this and look forward to it. 🐘 This has a gorgeous whipped texture and it feels quite rich but it just instantly absorbs into the skin and leaves a beautiful glow without looking or feeling oily at all. I’m amazed at how well this absorbs considering I have more normal skin and this is designed for more dry. 🐘 I don’t have any issues with this pilling, and make up sits well on top too and is still long lasting. 🐘 I have saw a reduction in fine lines and I do have brighter skin but I can’t say it’s down to this because I do use their Retinol and Vitamin C and Glycolic which are all designed to brighten and reduce fine lines. 🐘 With this being designed for more dry skin I was concerned that over time it may cause congestion but this did not happen at all. I have to say I highly recommend this to anyone regardless of your skin type.
