L’Oréal Elvive Hydra Hyaluronic Moisture Boosting Shampoo & Moisture Locking Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about the hair care combo I’m using at the moment – L’Oréal Elvive Hydra Hyaluronic Moisture Boosting Shampoo & Moisture Locking Conditioner. These products are aimed at people with dehydrated hair. My hair isn’t dehydrated, and I wash my hair every morning, so I can’t comment on the “up to 72h moisture” claim. But I can comment on how these products work for me.

Let’s start with the shampoo! I think it’s really nice. It’s a creamy white shampoo, but the formula feels a bit lighter when I compare it with other L’Oréal shampoos. I think it cleanses my hair gently, and I also like the fresh and floral scent.

Onto to the conditioner which is just as lovely. I’m impressed with how quickly and easily this conditioner detangles my hair. It’s really good! I also like how soft and silky it makes my hair feel without weighing it down.

I’m very happy with these hair products. Based on my experience, I’d recommend them, and I will buy them again, no doubt. If you’re interested, L’Oréal Elvive Hydra Hyaluronic Moisture Boosting Shampoo & Moisture Locking Conditioner are available as 400ml each for about £6. I paid £2.99 each (half price offer). I just checked the prices on Boots’ and Superdrug’s websites, and Boots is actually running a half price promotion, and Superdrug has a 2 for £6 deal (no idea when these offers expire though).

L’Oréal Elvive Smooth & Polish Thermo Detangling Spray

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the detanling sprays I picked up a few months ago – L’Oréal Elvive Smooth & Polish Thermo Detangling Spray.

I found this product at one of the local Poundstores. It was £1 only, so I thought I’d be stupid not to buy it.

Anyway, this leave-in product is aimed at people with unruly and fine to normal hair. It promises instant detangling and super smooth hair. Sounds great.

But is the product any good? Well, I didn’t like it, so I gave it away. Here’s why…

I don’t think this detangling spray is very effective. It didn’t help detangle my hair at all, so it doesn’t do what it says on the bottle!

I also don’t like the fragrance because it’s quite strong. It’s a synthetic “pink” fragrance that annoyed me instantly. I’m sure many women love the fragrance. I’m just not one of them.

And here’s the best (=worst) bit. This detangling spray seems to straighten hair. This is surely great if you already have straight hair. But if you have wavy to curly hair, this spray just ruins your hairdo.

So yeah, I didn’t like this detangling spray at all. I passed it on to a relative – she has straight hair, and she uses detangling sprays in general, so I hope she likes this product.

Nail Of The Day – L’Oréal Collection Exclusive By JLo – JLo’s Delicate Rose & Stamping With Pueen 77 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge R – Red

Hi there! I’ve got another nail of the day post for you today. This mani is another mani that counts towards the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. The actual challenge is R – Red.

For this mani I painted my nails with L’Oréal Collection Exclusive By JLo – JLo’s Delicate Rose (1 coat).

This polish is amazing – the colour, the formula, the brush… well done, L’Oréal!

Then I used Pueen’s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping collection) and Essence Wave Goddess 01 (which is a really old limited edition polish) to stamp these pretty and delicate images onto my nails. Job done!

I really like how this mani turned out. The vampy red base colour is gorgeous, and the images are beautiful and subtle. How do you like this mani? Please let me know via the comments. And thanks for reading! 🙂
