Hello lovelies, it’s been a while and I am literally drowning in work but will try to keep up the blogposts also! :) Hope you are all doing well! 

Today I am talking about my favourite Shampoo + Conditioner in the whole wide world!!! Are you still looking for THE product? Well, then this post might be helpful! First of all, I have been very unhappy with my hair situation and I just can not afford going to the hairdressers atm. That is why I tried many many hair products (including Aussie, Kérastase, etc.) to improve my hair situation and FINALLY! I am happy! My hair never looked, felt and smelled better. I deal with very dry ends and a lot of frizz lately and needed a lot of styling products.

What am I using now? The Redken Smooth Lock Duo and I will never ever use any other products than Redken ones!

The Smooth Lock range is for dry/unruly hair and here is why it works (according to redken.co.uk):

They are pricey but worth every penny. My hair felt so much better/looked better after one usage already! I do not need to use any styling products at all (which saves me money) and still have soft and healthy looking hair (even without using any ‘heat’ !!!). I compared prices for a long time because I am on a tight budget at the moment and only found prices around 20 Euro per bottle so I ordered mine at lookfantastic.com where I paid around 20 Euros for both of them together including free (and speedy) delivery. 

To be specific, I paid 20,80 Euro at the end of January – unfortunately prices are not as low anymore (currently 22,98 Euro/£18.38 — 12.02.2014). Anyway, after ordering the products there I found them even cheaper on urbanretreat.co.uk – styling and haircare products by Redken are currently on sale – let’s stock up!

This equals around 16 Euro plus delivery so it depends on how many products you order to actually save money here! 

Do you have any experience with Redken products? Maybe you know an even cheaper website to order the products or did not like them at all? Would love to read about that in the comments below! :)

Happy Sunday everyone! Can you believe it is February already?! I don’t know if it’s just me but time seems to be flying at the moment! 

Well, this post should actually be named New in #3 because I purchased the Rituals Cosmetics Zensation Shower Foam alongside the other products mentioned in my New in #1 & New in #2 posts. But since I have been purchasing this very product for the xx time I decided to just share my love!

200ml/8,00€/£8,50

I paid 7,20€/200ml though due to a 10%off voucher.

To get more information about Rituals click any of the two pictures above! :)

The first ever Rituals product I tried has been the Hammam Delight Shower Foam thanks to being a part of a Glossybox a couple of years back! I’ve been overly excited when shortly after that I went into town and noticed a Rituals Shop opened and I purchased the Zensation Shower Foam. And I never looked back. The so called ‘foaming shower gel sensation‘ with a ‘unique gel-to-foam technology‘ transforms the gel into a rich foam once in contact with water.

And the best thing is you really just need the smallest amount to have a gorgeous ‘sensation’ and the smell lasts well on the skin which is one thing I am mainly looking for in a shower product! The other main point is the nourishing effect & it is safe to say my skin feels so soft after using this product! I love love looooooooove it!!! 

Up to now I nearly own the whole range of Sakura Rituals (Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom ingredients/scent). And you should, too! But I guess it is up to you which range you like best really. All Rituals products (I’ve tried many others,too!) do actually smell great and are excellent for my skin & hair. Have you heard of them products or have you tried any (other) Rituals Cosmetics products yet? Did you like them? Or do you want to try them? Let me know in the comments below and have a lovely Sunday!

The title of my last blogpost (New in #1) already indicated that I purchased a few more products other than the nail polishes I talked about already! Here we go: I also got my favourite drugstore hairspray and some organic food but -don’t you worry- this is non-relevant to this post! :)

I stopped by the MAC counter because I decided to finally invest in some MAC goodies again. I knew that I definitely wanted to re-purchase the MAC FIX + because my bottle of this fantastic stuffff is nearly running out. Well, I’ll let you know a little fact about me here: I get nervous shortly before I run out of products I really really like. And by that I mean that I am panicky and mostly even stop using this particular product until I am re-stocked. That is why I say that my current MAC FIX + is almost used up but in reality my panicky self told me and it will probably last me another 3 weeks. This stuff is just lasting. Here I mean the actual bottle lasts a looong time and the product gives my Make-up just the nicest finish! :) Great for a little moisturizing touch-up during the day also! Even though MAC products seem too pricey to some people – I would always recommend them because they are just perfectly long-lasting (and actually have one of the greatest Make-up range out there). Okay, stop! ‘Ode to MAC Cosmetics’ – haha.

Keep it short and simple, Jennifer, please. I re-purchased the MAC FIX + !

‘An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up!’ MAC Cosmetics UK

The second product took a little longer and I had to deal with one of them ladies that just really annoyed me actually. Do you know that feeling? That you NEED this person (in this case to find the right shade) but actually you do not want to talk to that person because she is just too … I can’t find the word. She has just been to much to handle for me at that point. After a while we figured out my shade NC25 and I left the store happy after all – just a little upset after realizing the amount I spent there. I got the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. I can not wait to use this product!

‘Studio Fix is a powder and foundation in one that combines good coverage with ease of application. Designed to be used dry, the powder and pigments create a matte, velvety texture. It contains Silica, which helps to maintain a matte finish by absorbing oils on the skin, as well as Talc to provide a smoother, less reflective, matte finish. The talc has been milled to a microscopic size to provide a beautiful texture while allowing the skin to breathe. It is available in a wide range of colours. It can be applied with a brush, sponge, or a powder puff.’ MAC Cosmetics UK

And again- why is Make-up so much cheaper in the UK?! :( What are your favourite MAC products (in case you are using any)? My wishlist is growing daily!

As usual: Say hi via InstagramTwitter and bloglovin if you get the chance. Would make my day! :)

Have a lovely evening, Jennifer xxx
