Kenra Haircare!

25 October 2017
I was recently sent over some products to try by Kenrda haircare, if I'm being honest I hadn't heard of Kendra before probably because it had only launched in the U.K. in 2016. Anyway I was very excited to try them out as who doesn't love some new hair care products!

Firstly I love the packaging of all these products, the silver colour adds a luxurious feel to the products which I love, also not many haircare brand use the silver colour so it would definitely stand out on the shelves, this is now being used by a number of salons and can be found on Salon Success.

Kenra Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner 
So first up is the shampoo and conditioner, both these products aim to get rid of any build up on your hair as well as thickening your hair by adding body to your hair. The first thing I will say about this product is the smell, it does have a very overpowering smell of vanilla so if you don't like this scent then this won't be up your street. Overall from using this combination I feel like it has left my hair looking like it has a lot more volume than it usually does so I would definitely recommend this product.

Kenya Blow Dry Spray & Dry Shampoo
Firstly the blow dry spray, this aims to decrease blow dry time by 50% and provides your hair with heat protection from damage and breakage. Overall I think this has been my favourite product to use, its so easy to use when your hair is wet spray it on and it helps detangle your hair and make your blow dry a lot easier because your hair ends up overall smoother than normal. 

Next it the dry shampoo, now I am very fussy when it comes to dry shampoo as I feel like i can never get rid of the white powder that is left in my hair but this one is genuinely the best dry shampoo I have tried, the products works into your hair very well and leaves your hair looking anything but greasy, overall I really love using this product!

Kenra Hairspray
This spray is designed to give you a light hold and does not weigh your hair down at all. I can say I agree with this, if your hair requires a strong hairspray then this isn't for you I would say this hairspray is more of a everyday use as its light hold and doesnt leave your hair crispy and heavy from the hairspray which I find with a lot of hairsprays and it leaves me wanting to wash my hair far too regularly.

Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Watch

15 October 2017

Daniel Wellington Classic watch

Daniel Wellington Classic Watch

I was recently given the opportunity to review a watch from Daniel Wellington, I got to pick any from the website aren't I lucky ay? Ive always loved Daniel Wellington watches so I was very excited. For anyone that doesn't know Daniel Wellington,  they are a online retailer stocking a huge range of mens and womens watches

I picked the Classic Petite Sterling 28MM in the silver colour, the mesh strap is also available in rose gold and black which are both equally as pretty and available in two face sizes, 28 and 32mm. The watch can also be adjusted to fit your watch without having to do too much work, included is a booklet that shows you how to adjust it. I love the contrast of the face with strap, the black face looks gorgeous with so many outfits.

Overall I would definitely recommend ordering from Daniel Wellington they offer free postage which comes very quickly also they offer free returns so all round they offer a great service.

I also have 15% off code if you would like to purchase one yourself then use the code 'HELENAMULHEARN'

You can find the full range at Daniel Wellington here.

Pixi Beauty Review!

11 October 2017
I was recently sent over these products by Pixi by complete surprise, can you imagine waking up to this parcel?! It safe to say I was one very happy girl. Without giving away too much just yet, the products are amazing, keep reading to see what I think of each product.

Pixi beauty

Aspynovard Glow-y Powder 
pixi beauty
First of all I love this product because its a collaboration with a fellow blogger and youtuber, its so great seeing bloggers doing wonderful things like collaborating with a brand like Pixi. Also helps that this a fab product, I received the shade Rome Rose, this powder has a subtle pink tone to it make it the perfect blush shade whereas the other powders could be used as a highlighter. I like how subtle this is making it easy to build up to suit different skin tones and to create different looks. This is also only £14, a bargain for such a great product, you can find it here. 

Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse

Again a product made in collaboration with a fellow Youtuber and Blogger, this double cleanse provides a solid cleansing oil on one side and a cleansing cream on the other. I have been using this in my daily skincare routine for the past month and I have been really enjoying it so far, I have very dry skin and struggle to find things that don't irate my sensitive skin but this feels so soft and gentle on the skin, the soil cleanser also leaves my skin feeling so clean like every bit of makeup or die has been removed which is great.  This product is £24 and is available here.

Pixi Glow Tonic

I was literally so excited to try this because I have literally heard so many good things, this is a toner that aims to give smoother, brighter and clearer skin. Firstly I love the scent of this product, along with the cleanser I have started using this in my daily skincare routine and the combination of them both has left my skin looking fresh and kept spots at bay which I am loving! This product comes in two sizes, one is 100ml perfect for traveling or just for first trying the product or a larger size which is better value for money 250ml for £18 you can find it here. 

Maryam Maquillage Strobe & Bronze Palette

Again another collaboration with a blogger and youtuber, this palette features three highlighting and three bronzing shades. I have been trying them all out recently and I must say I prefer the bronzers over the highlighters for me the highlighters just aren't pigmented enough you would have to really build them up if you want a glowy look which I always want but haven't always got the time for before uni or work. Overall I do love this palette and I cant wait to use it some more, you can find it here.

Get the look- Its Eye Time

Again collaboration with a Youtuber, this palette was made in collaboration with Its Judy Time a youtuber who I have watched and loved for years so I was so excited to have a product made in collaboration with her. So this eyeshadow palette has an amazing range of 12 different colours that you can see from the swatches, the colours are perfect for the autumn season, the one thing I love about this palette is how pigmented these shades are and they blend out so well I'm obsessed with shade ping and night night, they both are incredible colours to blend! You can find this palette here. 

I hope you enjoyed this review of Pixi Beauty, have any of you tried and loved any of their products? Let me know!
