As I try out quite a few products, first impressions can count for a lot. Sometimes you know straight away that a products not for you, other times you have give it a bit more time.
Yesterday I ran out of my beloved Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil so had to make a quick dash to Superdrug. In the end I went with Sleeks new brow stylist, which is currently on offer for £5.99. There was only medium left on the stands - I think I'm more inbetween medium and dark judging from swatches online but I can just about pull medium off. From trying it out this morning, I'm liking it - its not a replacement for Anastasia brow wiz (brow wiz is the perfect colour match for my brows) but it glides on and has a brush for helping to comb hairs into place. Its meant to be a dupe for the Hourglass arch brow sculpting pencil which I've never used but obviously a lot cheaper. The only thing I'm not sure about is the slightly waxy formula as I prefer a standard pencil style but I'll keep using it for now.
I've bought a few new hair products recently including Schwarzkopf's Essence Ultime Omega Repair Shampoo. The ultime range is developed with Claudia Schiffer - no I'm not sure what she knows about haircare either but she has nice hair which helps. I've used this a few times and so far I'm really liking it. My hair feels much stronger, smoother and healthier without making it look a greaseball (always a bonus). I've been using it alongside the Loreal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Conditioner and they work really well together. Finally, I've given the Garnier Body Ultimate Anti-Cellulite Oil a whirl. I haven't used this enough for a complete review yet and I don't expect it to be a miracle oil - lets face it if there was something out there that could make cellulite disappear I'm sure we'd all know about it by now. However, I've found my skin feels really soft and slightly firmer after use. I'm hoping to start getting on my step machine soon so I'll have to see how it works in combination with exercise and body brushing - I'm not expecting it to work on its own.
Have you tried any of these?
