Avon BB Haircare Range


Hi guys ! Happy Wednesday . Hope you are having a great week so far.

A little while back Avon released a new BB Perfection haircare range, and as always I knew I needed to give it a try. I'm super picky with haircare, I have thick coloured hair , that gets frizzy , but then again can get super greasy quickly. 

I was SUPER tempted to try this range, so I decided to go big and try everything in the range. The range includes a shampoo, conditioner , beauty balm and mask. I was scared to get the conditioner, mask and beauty balm, because I know my hair ... It's either going to love it .. or it was going to go down horrible. (To be honest I thought it was going to go horrible.. since I know some products that claims to nourish is too nourishing on my hair )

I was pleasantly surprised when I use these combos together. The shampoo is AMAZING ! Hydrating, but not too hydrating, cleans my hair very nicely and keeps the frizzy hair at bay. The conditioner is nice too ... I like that it doesn't weigh my hair down , but does hydrate it a bit. The beauty balm is also pretty amazing, a little goes a loooonnng way , but this acts as a heat protecting balm too , which is ALWAYS a bonus as I heat style my hair basically everyday. 

But the most AMAZING stand out products for me from this range - The mask ! It works AMAZING !! It's recommended to keep it in for 20 minutes .. And if you do - the results are MIND BLOWING ! But to be real , I don't ALWAYS have time for that ... But leaving it in for 2minutes makes a huge difference too. My hair stays in style longer, looks soooo bouncy and healthy (and let's be real who doesn't want shiny bouncy healthy hair ? ) I did also find this made my hair tangle less... 


So onto the 10 Benefits of this range :

  1.  take care of your hair,
  2.  protect,
  3.  nourish,
  4.  improve the shine,
  5.  help against humidity,
  6.  smooth,
  7.  maintain the hydration in your hair, 
  8. tame curls, 
  9. make your hair silky smooth,
  10.  and make styling easier.
The help against humidity part is pretty true too - We had a mini family break for my dad's birthday at the end of September ... And the place we went was hot and humid. I took the shampoo and mask along ... And not one day did I struggle with my hair turning frizzy on me. And my hair would normally go wild and frizzy and have tons of fly-aways . Even after going on hiking trips( and falling into a river ) my hair was still nice and smooth. Pretty impressive in my books .

The two stand out products from this range for me personally - The shampoo and mask. I'm already on my second bottle of shampoo (and I already have a back up ) and more than half way with my mask (And while I'm a huge fan off face masks , I usually HATE hair masks ) . This is pretty magical range in my books. 

How has YOUR week been so far ?

I HEART YOU


Hi guys ! Happy Monday ! How was your weekend ? Mine was actually pretty nice and relaxing... Except for the JHB heat ... Seriously.. It's not even December yet. 

I few weeks ago I shared a shot of a mani I wore using some awesome We Heart Nail Art heart swirls vinyls. These vinyls makes nail art super easy , it's really just sticking on the vinyl... Painting over it , gently taking it off ... and voila - EASY PEASY and super gorgeous nail art in minutes (okay not minutes... your base colour has to dry first before you can even use the vinyls ... But you get the basic idea there ) I will be posting a little tutorial this week using some vinyls too, so if you are not sure about how to use them stay tuned for that .

I started off with my base colour - Tip Top Milkyway. After it was dry ( I waited about 20 minutes ) I applied the heart vinyl - painted piCture pOlish Allure and removed the vinyls with tweezers. Top coated and had a gorgeous fun mani.

So onto the photos -

October TestBox Unboxing


Hi guys ! Happy Wednesday ! 

Today I'm sharing the October Testbox with you guys.  This month was another amazing TheTestBox subscription box . This month's box included :

  • TIGI Oatmeal and Honey Shampoo
  • TIGI Oatmeal and Honey Conditioner
  • TIGI Oatmeal and Honey Treatment
First off ... This is the most delicious smelling shampoo EVER ! This smells like a delicious oatmeal cookie - YUM ! I'm not a big fan of smelling like a flower garden threw up on you (florally )  so this was right up my alley . The TIGI Oatmeal and Honey shampoo is designed for dry damaged hair , to help smooth and  leave it soft and silky.

Well my hair is more on the thick and oily type, this didn't make my hair any oilier ... Which is a good thing in my case. I won't say this is a SUPER moisturising shampoo either... But it's a good range non the less... And was fun to try out. 

Personally ... I would recommend this range more for normal hair types than dry and damaged... But that's just my thoughts on this range.

Again , this is a great bargain for R160 ... And I think the Testbox is fun to try out different hair care products ... I know I'm always on the look out for great haircare products.

*This product/s was send to me in exchange for my honest opinion*

Picture Polish - Minty

Hi guys ! Happy Monday ! Hope you had a great weekend.

First off all , sorry for being gone for a little bit. Unfortunately life sometimes get's in the way ... BUT ... I'm very happy to finally have some time to blog a bit again. And it's October - Yeah ! I will most certainly have a few Breast Cancer Awareness Tutorials & Halloween Nail Art looks on the blog this month .

Today I'm sharing another awesome piCture pOlish with you guys - piCture pOlish - Minty . 

piCture pOlish Minty is a gorgeous minty green polish with little red and white hex glitters.  The formula on this polish is a little trickier ... But the colour is soooo gorgeous that the little effort pays off. I would recommend you use thinner layers with this polish , and give it a little drying time in between layers. I used 2 coats of piCture pOlish Minty in the swatches below. 

So onto the photos - 

We  ♥ Nail Art is the exclusive South African retailer for piCture pOlish , and also stocks Mo You stamping plates and gorgeous nail vinyls. 

Have you tried piCture pOlish yet ? Any one you like to try ?
