September Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the beauty products I loved the most this past month. Read on to see the favourites (and there are a few honourable mentions further down as well). 🙂

3rd place – L’Oréal Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner

L’Oréal did a great job with these hair products. I’m a fan!

Runner-Up – Astor Rouge Couture Lipsticks

Astor’s Rouge Couture lipsticks were amazing. It’s too bad the entire collection has been discontinued.

WINNER – Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum

Zatik’s facial oil is simply fantastic! It’s a new beauty favourite, and I know it’ll serve me well over the colder months ahead.

Onto the honourable mentions! M&S The Fragrance Collection Peony & Rhubarb Eau De Toilette almost made it into the top 3. Superdrug’s Anti-Ageing Moisture Mask was a very nice surprise, and Skin Treats’ Olive Oil Mask was lovely too!

There were a few other products I’ve enjoyed a lot (and still enjoy), but I’ve limited myself to 6 favourites this month.

Have you tried any of these products, or would you like to give them a try? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for reading! 😘

Revisiting Old Favourites – L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about a hair care combo which I’ve previously used and reviewed – L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner. However, I haven’t used these hair care products in years, so I thought now’s a good time to revisit them.

L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner promise to reinforce hair fibre, to nourish hair from root to tip, and to make hair feel stronger. These products are aimed at people with fragile hair.

I’m satisfied that the shampoo cleanses my hair and scalp properly but also gently. And the conditioner detangles my hair well. I do think that this shampoo and conditioner make my hair feel stronger. And I’ve noticed that I lose a little less hair in the shower when I use these products. I’m still a big fan!

Keep in mind, these products wont’t help with medical issues that cause or result in hair loss. In such cases, it’s always best to seek medical help – please speak with your GP. 💖

L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner have recently been renamed from Triple Resist to Full Resist. Regardless of this, these products are available as 250ml for about £3, and 400ml for £5. I bought the big 400ml bottles on a half price offer.

This is everything I bought since mid-April. I know I’ve been a bad girl, but I really wanted to treat myself to a few new products when I started my new job. 🙂

L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I just started to use L’Oréal’s Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner again. I haven’t had these ones in ages – because whenever there’s a half price or BOGOF offer, one of the two products is always out of stock. But I was lucky the other day – so I bought a few L’Oréal shampoos and conditioners for half price.
L'Oreal Triple Resist
Now let’s get to these products. The reinforcing shampoo is one of my favourites. It cleanses my scalp and my hair without irritating my skin. I love the shampoo and I’ll buy it again. The conditioner is quite good too. I remember it being thinner and easier to use. But it’s still a very decent product that conditions and detangles my hair well.

I think this shampoo and conditioner combo really helps with certain hair loss issues. It won’t sort out hair loss caused by medical conditions or hormones and the likes. But whenever I use these two products, I notice a huge difference in how much hair I’m losing – from day one. I don’t know how L’Oréal did it, but they’ve done a great job with these products.

I would definitely recommend this shampoo/conditioner combo – regardless of whether your hair needs strengthening or not. L’Oréal’s Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 250ml for £2.99 each, and 400ml for £3.99 each.
