Daily Defense Pomegranate And Vitamin E Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about the hair products I’m using at the moment – Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner. Daily Defense is a Canadian brand, and they state that their products are cruelty-free. This is great! Now let’s focus on the products. 🙂

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo is very nice. It’s low in sulfate, but it lathers up perfectly, and it cleanses my hair gently. The fruity fragrance is a bit random, but I like the shampoo very much.

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Conditioner is very effective. It detangles my hair with ease, it makes my hair feel soft and silky without weighing it down. Again, the random fruity fragrance is rather unspectacular, but in all other aspects this is a great conditioner which mops the floor with comparable products from brands like Pantene or Garnier.

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 473ml each. I paid £1.25 each – a total steal!

Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hair care products that I’ve been using since December – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil. These products are cruelty-free, and they were made in Canada!

I don’t have dry hair. I bought these products because I’ve been impressed with Daily Defense’s Keratin products and their Argan Oil products. And now that I’ve been using the Macadamia Oil products for a few weeks now, let me tell you if they’re equally good. 🙂

The shampoo is very nice. It feels wonderful. I’d describe the formula as creamy, dreamy and soothing. However, the shampoo doesn’t make my hair feel oily at all. It makes my hair and scalp feel cleansed and nourished at the same time. Awesome!

The conditioner is just as lovely. It helps me detangle my hair with ease, and it leaves my hair feeling super soft and silky without making it feel or look oily. It’s definitely in my all-time top 10 of conditioners!

I think these 2 products are wonderful. And I would recommend them to everyone! Oh, and in case you’re wondering… these two products smell like a mix of shea butter and coconut water.

Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil are available as 473ml each for about £1. If you want to try Daily Defense’s awesome products, you need to swing by your local bargain stores!

Daily Defence Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil

Hi there! Today’s review is about a hair care combo I started to use over a month ago – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil.

I’d never heard of the brand Daily Defense until I found a couple of shampoos and conditioners at my local Poundstretcher store. The big 473ml bottles were £1 each, and the products were cruelty-free and made in Canada. So I thought I’d be stupid not to buy them! I’ve already reviewed the other Daily Defense shampoo and conditioner combo, and now I’m telling you if these hair products with argan oil are any good.
daily-defense-argan-oil
I really like the shampoo. It’s quite runny (just like the keratin shampoo), but it feels great on my head – it’s very gentle which is really nice! Oh, and the shampoo is low in sulfate, but it lathers up perfectly well. Awesome! The conditioner is very good. It helps me detangle my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel incredibly soft and silky. I noticed a huge difference right after the first use. This conditioner made me realise how average L’Oréal’s Nutri-Gloss Crystal Conditioner and Superdrug’s Aloe Vera & Mango Conditioner were.

I think this hair care combo is outstanding! These 2 Daily Defense products are suitable for most hair types (but not oily hair), and they mop the floor with half of L’Oréal’s offerings. They’re also light years ahead of everything Pantene has ever done. And I’m saying this as someone who buys L’Oréal and Pantene products regularly. Oh, by the way, these 2 Daily Defense products smell very nice. I can’t really describe the fragrance, but it smells creamy and warm. Absolutely lovely!

If you’d like to try Daily Defense’s Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil, swing by your local bargain stores! I bought these two big 473ml bottles for £1 each (Poundstretcher), and I’ve also seen the shampoos in jumbo bottles (probably around 900ml) for £1.49 at Home Bargains! Now go, buy and try! I’d love to hear what you think about these Daily Defense hair products!

Empties – March 2017

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied in March 2017. I used a few face masks (what else is new…) but I haven’t kept the empty sachets. So let’s get to the (more or less) big empties right away! 🙂

1 L’Oréal Youth Code Luminizer Serum – this serum is very good! It’s been discontinued, so I don’t think I’d be able to repurchase it at a reasonable price. I have, however, started to use a new L’Oréal serum just a few days ago, and I think the new serum (which I’ll review soon) is very good too!

2 B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – fantastic stuff! I only discovered this product in December 2016 – but it became a beauty staple and an all-time favourite in a matter of days. I have four back-up bottles! 🙂

3 Superdrug Clearly Youthful Retexturising Glycolic Peel Off Mask – this mask is the most effective spot-fighting product I’ve ever used. Unfortunately this product has been discontinued. But I still have two back-up tubes.
empties-032017-1
4 Olay Total Effects CC Cream Complexion Corrector Fair To Medium – I liked the rich and nourishing formula, but the shade fair to medium (which is the lightest shade) was way too dark for me. Because of this I won’t purchase this moisturiser again.

5 Pacifica Vanilla Hibiscus Color Quench Lip Tint – this is a really nice tinted lip balm. I might repurchase it again at some point in the future, but for now I have more than enough lip balms and glosses in my stash…

6 Miss Sporty Dr Balm Gossip Kiss SOS Lip Balm – this is a decent lip balm, but I wouldn’t buy it again. I finished one of these before and I must say that the melon flavour has been annoying me for quite some time…

7 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Radiance Balm – I’m glad this product is finished. It didn’t do anything for my skin, it wasn’t hydrating at all, and the chunky shimmer particles weren’t great either. I wouldn’t buy this product again.

8 Boots Botanics Quenching Body Lotion – another oldie that’s been sitting in my stash for ages. I found this body lotion very hydrating. However, it was also quite sticky. I wouldn’t repurchase it (but it’s been discontinued anyway…).

9 Boots Botanics Skin Brightening Toner – this toner is fantastic. Too bad it’s been discontinued – otherwise I’d buy it again and again and again… However, I do have another small 75ml bottle of this toner in my stash! 🙂

10 Maybelline Color Sensational Luscious Lipgloss 410 Peach Sorbet – a decent lipgloss! It’s never been a true favourite, but I did enjoy using this lipgloss. I have several of these Maybelline lipglosses – another peach-flavoured one, a cherry-flavoured one, and several pink ones (not sure about those flavours though).

11 Rimmel Pro Super Wear Ultra Shine Topcoat – a nice top coat! I think this one’s been discontinued, but if it pops up in some bargain store at some point in the future, I’d repurchase it!

12 Markwins Orange Shimmer Nail Polish – I’ve had this nail polish in my stash for ages but it seemed to have dried out over the years. This polish has never been a favourite of mine, so I didn’t mind letting it go.

13 Possibility Raspberry Pavlova Shower & Bath Gel – I liked this one in the beginning, but the sweet raspberry fragrance started to annoy me half-way through the huge 500ml bottle. I wouldn’t buy this one again.

14 Boots Marshmallow Peppermint Body Butter – I didn’t like the fragrance, so I’m glad this one is gone. I hope Boots won’t repeat this fragrance for this year’s limited Christmas edition.

15 Essence Nail Art White Stampy Polish – the best white stamping polish you can find for £1.50. I have two back-ups, but I’d like to stock up because this one’s sold out online at the moment. I’ll see if I can still find it in store… Fingers crossed!

16 Superdrug Vitamin C Boost Body Scrub Mango & Papaya – a really nice scrub. I will buy it again! This one’s a shared empty. My husband used this scrub a few times too.

17 Superdrug Raspberry Bubblegum Shower Gel – this is a decent shower gel, but it’s not special. I wouldn’t buy it again. This one’s also a shared empty.

18 Classics Nail Polish Remover – this is one of my nail care staples. As long as Poundland, Poundworld and the likes stock this product, I’ll repurchase it.

19 Radox Passionfruit Splash Shower Gel – this one is very nice. I’ll repurchase it, no doubt.

20 Daily Defense Moisturizing Conditioner With Keratin – I think this conditioner is fantastic. I already bought another bottle. 🙂

I think March was surprisingly good for empties. I’m very proud of how many ‘small’ products I finished! Right now I’m thinking I won’t be able to finish anything this month, but I’m sure I’ll have a few empties. For now… feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Keratin

Hi there! A few months ago I bought 2 Daily Defense shampoo and conditioner combos, and I’m revieweing one of those combos today. Now meet Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Keratin!

To be honest, I’d never heard of this brand before – but I was interested because the products were made in Canada (Hello blogging buddies from Canada!) and they’re cruelty-free! 🙂 I’ve been using these two products for a few weeks now, so I’ve had the chance to form an opinion. Now let me tell you how I like these hair products!
daily-defense-keratin
I think the shampoo is really nice. It’s a little runnier than L’Oréal or Pantene shampoos, but that’s OK. The shampoo claims to be low in sulfate, but it still lathers up well. However, the shampoo is really gentle, and I’m sure it would be amazing for people with dry hair and / or sensitive scalps. The conditioner is fairly nice too. It helps me detangle my hair in the shower and it makes my hair feel very soft. I love it!

And now, let me compare these Daily Defense hair products with other brands! I think this shampoo & conditioner combo is even better than my favourite Pantene combo (= Breakage Defence), and it’s almost as good as my two favourite L’Oréal combos (= Colour Protect and Triple Resist). On top of that, these two Daily Defense hair products smell absolutely fantastic! Scent-wise they’re in my all-time top 5!

If you’d like to try Daily Defense’s Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Keratin, swing by your local bargain stores! I bought these two big 473ml bottles for £1 each (Poundstretcher), and I’ve also seen the shampoos in jumbo bottles (probably around 900ml) for £1.49 at Home Bargains! Now go, buy and try! I’d love to hear what you think about these Daily Defense hair products! 🙂
