Gliss Total Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Hair Repair Total Repair Shampoo & Conditioner. Whilst this hair care combo has been around for ages, I never actually tried it. I guess I favoured the look of the other Gliss products because they’re more colourful. However, I’ve now tried the Total Repair hair products, and here’s what I think.

Gliss Hair Repair Total Repair Shampoo is one of those shampoos that make hair feel super soft. The shampoo smells lovely (similar to all the other Gliss products), and I love that it doesn’t tangle up my hair. This is a great little shampoo!

Gliss Hair Repair Total Repair Conditioner is very nice too. It makes my hair feel super silky, and a little goes a long way. Gliss did an amazing job with this conditioner. It’s definitely one of their best conditioners!

I have noticed that my hair starts to get a little greasy if I use these products for more than 3 days in a row. So I am now using these products in a 2-1 rota. This means that I use these Gliss products for 2 consecutive days, then I use one of Alberto Balsam’s shampoo and conditioner combos for 1 day, then back to Gliss… and so on.  This 2-1 rota works very well for my hair, and I love how my hair looks and feels. It’s a huge difference compared to the lifeless mess my hair was when I used Herbal Essences’ Cocoa products.

Gliss Hair Repair Total Repair Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 250ml and 200ml, respectively. They’re usually around £1 each, and they can be found in bargain stores such as Poundland, Poundstretcher, B&M Bargains and Home Bargains. I would recommend these products to those who want softer hair, and I think these products will make a difference for people with dry hair. I will definitely buy these products again!

Derma V10 Cocoa Body Butter

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Derma V10‘s Cocoa Body Butter. I’ve previously tried one of Derma V10’s body butters, and I’ve been happy with it. So I thought I should try more products from this brand. And as a big fan of all things chocolatey, buying their cocoa body butter was an easy choice. 🙂

How’s the product? I’m very happy with it! This body butter hydrates my skin well without making it feel sticky. And the fragrance is extremely nice. It reminds me of cocoa powder for hot chocolate (similar to Nesquik’s). It’s yummy!

Derma V10‘s Cocoa Body Butter is available as 220ml for £1 at the usual bargain stores. I’m sure that I’ll finish this body butter in no time! And I have no doubt that I’ll buy it again!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 557 Yes Sir! & Stamping With Pueen 92

Hi there! Here’s the last Nail Of The Day post for the week. This means that Nail Week is now finished. Well, almost. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 557 Yes Sir! (2 coats). This is a great polish. It dries reasonably quickly, and the formula is a dream.

I’ve used a stamping plate that I’ve never used before – Pueen‘s 92 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s brilliant Buffet Leisure collection).

The gold polish I stamped with is Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize.

This is another mani that was inspired by boredom but looked much nicer than expected. Well, I’m not complaining. 🙂

Do you like green and gold nails? What nail colour are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 860 Bestival Blue, NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-719

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a long time ago. I think this one’s from last summer! Oops!

Ayhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 860 Bestival Blue (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry (2 coats, ring fingers, pinkies).

I wanted glitter, but I also wanted to stamp so… the pretty glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti.

I used Bundle Monster‘s BM-719 plate (which is part of Bundle Monster‘s amazing Secret Garden stamping plate collection).

I didn’t like this mani very much. It’s not a complete fail, but I expected it to look much better. Ah well…

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Space Dust 003 Aurora, Sinful Colors Blue LaLa & Stamping With MoYou London Sailor 06

Hi there! I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

Whilst this mani looked great in real life, it didn’t look great in any of the photos I took. Based on the photo, you’re forgiven for thinking it was a nail fail.

Alright… for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Space Dust 003 Aurora (2 coats, pinkies and ring fingers). This is one of the textured (= rough) glitter polishes that were the rage a few years ago.

For the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats).

I decided to stamp. The marine-themed stamping plate I used is MoYou London Sailor 06.

The gold stamping polish is Sally Hansen Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou London, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 066 Cranberry Zest & Accessorize Bewitched

Hi there! This is another mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 066 Cranberry Zest (2 coats). This is a gorgeous colour. It reminds me of Revlon’s Cherries In The Snow!

When I painted my nails, I realised that this polish is one of Rimmel’s scented polishes. I think scented polishes usually smell awful, but this (cranberry-scented) one was actually quite alright.

The flakie top coat I used is Accessorize Bewitched. This is a low quality top coat. I had to apply 2 thick coats to achieve an acceptable finish.

Having said that, I do think that this mani looked cute. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch & Stamping With Pueen 107

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a little while ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch (2 coats). This polish is from Rimmel’s by Kate collection, and it’s pretty much a one-coater. This is a fantastic polish. 50p (!) very well spent!

For the images I used Pueen‘s 107 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s sensational Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The light green stamping polish is MoYou London‘s Little Pickle. Whilst this polish stamps well, it stains terribly. It stains worse than some of those dark blue polishes that give you “smurf hands” upon removal. I would never have expected this from such a light colour…

Anyway… I did like this mani. It wasn’t the most special mani, but it looked quite cool without being over the top. 🙂
