Review: Neal & Wolf Shampoo and Conditioner

I was sent some products a few weeks ago from the lovely people over at Neal & Wolf. They have been amazing, even asked which products i would like to try and let me choose myself! They have also kept in touch through twitter and emails which has been really nice! :)

Onto the products:


Neal & Wolf 'Ritual' Daily Cleansing Shampoo
What they say:

'is a shampoo designed to cleanse the hair, leaving it fresh, full of shine and ready for styling. An infusion of silk and milk proteins combine to boost vital moisture and reduce flyaway hair. Liquid shea extract delivers brilliant shine. The result? Luxurious, easy-to-manage, radiant locks. For the ultimate result, use with Ritual Daily Conditioner.'

Size: 250ml
 
Price: £10.95

My thoughts:

I loved this shampoo. It is a quite thick, clear consistancy and the smallest amount would lather up really well in my hair. I also love the smell, which is really unique and Neal and Wolf say that it was developed in a perfumery. After rinsing out the shampoo alone, i could feel that my hair felt clean and not tangled like it can normally feel after using just the conditioner.
Neal & Wolf 'Ritual' Daily Conditioner
What they say:


'is a weightless conditioner that instantly detangles, leaving hair wonderfully smooth and ready for styling. Silk protein complex delivers vital moisture while shea butter extract creates brilliant shine. Added sunscreens provide protection from environmental damage. The result? Luxurious, easy-to-manage, radiant locks. For the ultimate result, use with Ritual Daily Cleansing Shampoo.'

Size: 200ml

Price: £11.95

What i think:


This conditioner definitely lives up to its expectiations, it is a white cream and thinner in consistancy than the shampoo. I used quite a bit more of this than i did with the shampoo and that is purely because of reference. I have quite long and extremely thick hair and tend to use lots of conditioner! This felt really luxurious within my hair, covered well and once washed out left my hair feeling really smooth and soft.

The results:


As i was testing out the shampoo and conditioner i didnt use any other styling products like i would normally do. The products detangled my hair amazingly and i was able to brush through it with ease. It left me with gorgeously smooth, shiny and ever so soft hair! It has been a pleasure using these products and they have taken over my normal hair care routine! It is safe to say i have already finished the conditioner i love the product so much! The smell is beautiful! Really one that i love and so different to any other that i have used before! Left my hair feeling a lot cleaner than usual and even the boyfriend commented on how shiny my hair was looking after using these products! Win!

Would i recommend:
Absolutely! As a treat i would definitely recommend. The prices are a little more than i would pay usually but for a nice treat these are perfect.

My only 'concerns':

The products dont have any instructions on, which is okay with the shampoo and conditioner as it is self explanitary (although i must admit i did look for instructions!) but with the other products in the range it would be helpful. Although as i am aware it is because these are sample products and the newer products will come with instructions.

The other thing is that they are not yet to buy on the website and only available in salons, which again they will be avalable on the website soon so i will definitely keep you all updated!


The Neal & Wolf products are yet to be available in stores or on their website but you can purchase them currently from salons.


As i am aware they will be available to buy from the website soon which you can find here, and you can preview all the products offered by Neal & Wolf here .
You can currently buy them from Beauty Bay who also ship internationally!


Have you ever tried any products by Neal & Wolf? What are your thoughts?

My Birthday Presents :)

Hi dolls,

After the post i wrote about my birthday & when i asked if you would like to see my main birthday presents a lot of you said you would so here it is :)

I got so much for my birthday & a lot of it was so unexpected! & i love absolutely everything so i thought i would share it with you!

I got 3 Links of London charms for my birthday, yes 3! I couldnt believe it either!
  • 'Hand held mirror' charm - from my Brother & Sister
  • 'Lucky Knickers' charm - from my Mummy
  • 'High Heel' charm - from my friends at Uni
From my gorgeous boyfriend James, i got a Michael Kors watch which i have been lusting after for months & also some money, which i bought one of my other presents with!


With the money James gave me i bought an Alexander Mcqueen scarf, i have also been lusting after one of these forever & it finally came back in stock on the website on Wednesday & i received it on Friday! :)
I always thought i wanted the black with white skulls but the gorgeous Milly finally tempted me to get the cream & i absolutely love it - super gorgeous!

Last but not least has to be my most favourite present, a Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 :) Now this is a bag that you either love or hate! I personally love it, & cannot wait to take it on its first outing!


I love this bag so much, & again have wanted this for such a long time!
So thats it for my main presents, i hope it has been worth the wait! I also received lots of other goodies, including a Mahooosive me to you teddy!
Suprisingly i didnt get much make-up for my birthday! Which i am happy with as i think my collection is getting completely out of control!


I had an amazing 21st birthday and would like to say thank you to absolutely everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday - love you all!

Review: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

A few weeks ago i was sent a box full of goodies from the wonderful people at Liz Earle. I didnt want to rush out the reviews and wanted to take my time with using the products so i could review them properly.

I have heard lots of things about Liz Earle products in the past, especially the infamous Cleanse & Polish but never ventured into buying so when i was offered the opportunity to test out some products i was excited to say the least.

In my wonderful box of goodies i received the:

♥ Cleanse and Polish Hot cloth cleanser ♥
♥ Instant Boost skin tonic ♥
♥ Superskin Moisturiser ♥
♥ Superbalm ♥
♥ Botanical Essence No 1 Eau De Parfum ♥

I will be reviewing each product over the next few weeks.

Product/Price

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser - 100ml Starter Kit & 2 muslin cloths for £13.00

How to use

Fill a basin with hand-hot water.

Apply 1 or 2 pumps of Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser onto dry skin and use your fingertips to gently massage the cream over your face and neck. Work in circular movements from the centre of your face outwards. Massage over your eyelids and eyelashes last to avoid spreading eye makeup over your face.

Rinse the pure muslin cloth in hand-hot water and wring it out so it's damp, not wet.

Use the muslin cloth to wipe off the cream using a clean section for each part of your face. Place a single finger inside the cloth to thoroughly clean more awkward areas such as around the nose. Be gentle around your eye zone when removing eye make-up. Rinse the cloth thoroughly during cleansing.

Rinse your skin in cool water and carefully pat dry using a soft towel. Rinse the muslin cloth thoroughly and allow it to air dry naturally.

My thoughts
I have been using the Cleanse & Polish morning and night for approximately a month now and i can honestly say i am in love! This product feels amazing on the skin and makes cleansing and removing make up super easy!

I have never before experienced using a muslin cloth in my skin care routine and now dont think i could do without!

One pump is enough to cover the whole face and you gently massage in, this is the cleansing process. I found that it removed every trace of make up also, so there was no need for me to use face wipes or a separate eye make up remover which i would normally use.

The product is a white cream which is rather thick, but applies to the face with ease, it also feels & smells amazing.

To polish, you use the hot muslin cloth to wipe the product off. I honestly could see a difference to my skin after each use as it looked glowing and felt extremely soft!

The muslin cloth worked wonders, was a gentle exfoliation of the skin without been too harsh.
The result?
I was left with radiant & glowing skin after each use. My face felt exceptionally clean and felt amazingly soft & smooth! This will now become a staple of my skincare routine.
Would i repurchase/recommend?
I absolutely love my new skincare routine and would honestly recommend this product to everyone, im not sure how long my tube will last me but once i run out i will definitely carry on repurchasing this product!
Where is it available?
Liz Earle products are available now to purchase on their website
What are your thoughts on Liz Earle products? Have you tried any?
