So I am back with another Hey Bellissimo recommends letting you guys know what great products I am using at the moment. I love giving you guys the low down on what works for my hair and skin so you can spend your money wisely on new products. Octobers Hey Bellissimo recommends is all about staying hydrated and moisturised in the colder months because we do not want to be looking dry and crusty this winter.
Almocado Naturals Moisture Mist- Sandal Wood Vanilla Hydrating Aloe Vera Spritz
I am trying to incorporate more black owned brands I into my hair and beauty routine because it is so important to support black owned companies. Almocado is a UK natural hair and skin care brand that produces organic handmade products.
Almocado website offers a variety of moisture mists for the hair with different flavours. I have been using the Moisture Mist as a leave in conditioner in the flavour of sandal wood vanilla. The Moisture Mist has a light sweet smell that is not overpowering, which is perfect for when I am wearing protective styles.
This leave in conditioner has kept my hair and scalp so moisturised in a variety of protective styles, it works equally as well when my hair has been in a bun and also when it is in a sew in. There has been no itching of the scalp when I use this product which is so important when you are rocking a protective style for a while. It is packed with all natural ingredients which my hair absolutely loves, it contains good stuff such as aloe Vera juice for hydration and wheat protein for maintaining strength. Interestingly it does not contain any oil, but the moisture remained locked in my strands and my hair did not dry out.
Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate
I have been on the hunt for a facial moisturiser that I can use in the morning and at night. The Clinique Moisture Surge is the answer to my prayers, this moisturiser is definitely going to remain part of my daily routine. It comes in a liquid gel formula, which is extremely light when applied on the face but still remains hydrating. Once applied it dries down to a smooth and silky layer.
I love that the Moisture Surge is non greasy, which is great for my combination skin. This means I can use it underneath my primer without looking like a shiny new one pound coin. Also since I have been using the Moisture Surge my skin has been so clear without make-up.
The Moisture Surge has kept my skin looking and feeling on point, it looks fresh and it feels really soft in the morning. It is 100% fragrance free and suitable for all skin types, so it is perfect for those who have sensitive skin.
Glam Glow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment Masque
This is the best exfoliator masque I have ever tried. It transformed my dry and dull skin to being really quenched and feeling so smooth. I apply the masque all over my face and neck and immediately the masque begins to tingle and tighten my skin, I love that you can actually feel the masque taking effect.
The masque contains volcanic pumice rock, French sea clay, and Teaoxi green tea leaf. It is extremely thick and it contains small pieces which act as an amazing exfoliator.
I use the masque once a week on Sundays as part of my morning pamper routine. I only leave it on for ten minutes before washing it off in the shower. The only negative point for the Glam Glow YouthMud Masque is it is pretty pricey for a 50 gram container, it would be great if you got more product for the price. However because the masque is so thick a small amount does cover a lot of my face.
