Review | LUSH Seanik Shampoo Bar

On my last trip to Lush, they were out of my regular Shampoo Bar, and I decided to that this time I was going to try a new bar. I asked the sales girl and she suggested I try this one -- Seanik. 
This beautiful blue bar has plenty of ingredients to soften and revitalize your hair. First up, there's a ton of nori seaweed (yup, like the ones you eat on sushi!) packed into each bar, which is rich in protein and helps to strengthen hair and make it silky soft in both look and feel. It has lemon that helps with natural shine, without making it look greasy or oily. And Salt! This shampoo bar has a ton of salt, which helps with volume and grease control. 

I found it great for summer, specially because it has a very tropical, beach-y smell because of all the seaweed, lemon and jasmine essential oil. Unfortunately, the smell doesn't really linger around. But you get that beach hair feeling, without the dryness. It gives you some extra volume at the roost, without being too much volume. But since it does contain a lot of salt, this is not appropriate for you if you wash you hair every day. 

I really, really, like it.

Wishlist | La Vie En Rose

 -- Please be nice and supportive and click on at least one of the pictures! I'd do the same for you. Thank you! -- 

I'm not too into pink, but I have to admit that pink is super trending this year. There's one shade -- a pastel-ish tone, that is called the millennial pink, because it super popular among this generation. 
Pink is definitely not my color, but I really like small pink details. I think it's a good way to add a feminine, girly touch to an outfit our to our life.

The worst thing about getting back to work, after taking one week off, is having to wear pants again. Specially with this heat. ARGH.
Happy Monday!

Quick Tip # 5 | The BEST Make up discs

I've tried many, MANY, make up disks... You know, the kind you use to remove your make up or simple to clean or tone your face. And I've found out that these  from Cien are the best. I don't like the ones that feel like a cotton ball -- they absorve too much product and get all squishy and loose their shape in two seconds and become useless. These hold their shape super well. specially because they have stitching all around. The texture of the tissue is really good: they are two faced -- one side is more soft and smooth, the other has a little more texture, perfect to help clean and remove make up.
And the price is amazing. For 0.89€ you get 140 units. The cheaper ones from Wells cost 0.99€ and come with only 80 units. And they suck hard.

REVIEW | LUSH Rose Jam Bubbleroon Bubble-Bar

Baths and showers are my thing. I love great smelling bath products. And the Lush products that excites me the most are their bubble bars!

What's a bubble bar? Well, it's a bar that turns your bath into an luxurious bubble bath! There are a manner of ways you can use this: you can either crumble this under the running tap or place some inside a sieve and hold this under the water. I admit: I tend to be a little spare when it comes to Lush products, so I only use a piece. I break a piece out and crumble it under the tap, that's my method. I can get 2 or 3 uses out of one bubble-bar! And a third of a bar is more than enough to fill your tub with a LOT of bubbles.

Much like bath bombs, this product will change the color of your water too. The one that I'm showing you today -- the Rose Jam Bubbleroon - will draw you a gorgeous pastel pink coloured bubble bath, with a fragrance the most amazing relaxing floral fragrance. Furthermore, this product does wonders for your skin. After a bath with this, my skin felt super soft and moisturized and that amazing smell lingered on my skin for the rest of the day.
