Kerastase Elixir Ultime Sublime Cleansing Oil Shampoo and Hair Masque – Review

Hi everybody. I recently went for a haircut and was talked into buying the new shampoo and masque from Kerastase- the Elixir Ultime range. Since I already love the Elixir Ultime hair serum, I was easily convinced to buy these. Since they are quite expensive and luxurious, I just use them once a week- I use my L’Oreal Professionel shampoo and conditioner on other days.

My verdict? The Kerastase Elixir Ultime Shampoo and Masque are AHMAAAAZING. It seriously leaves my hair so ridiculously soft and silky and my hair looks like those shampoo ads on TV.
The shampoo does not lather much (which does not really bother me much). The masque feels so luxurious and a little goes a long way. I avoid applying on my roots and concentrate more on the ends, leave it on for about 5 to 10 min then rinse it off. They also smell so amazing. Since they are oil based, they do not weigh the hair down and do not make my scalp feel oily at all.

Has anybody tried this? Do you love it as much as I do?

My Spring / Summer makeup picks

Hi friends. It’s been absolutely ages since my last blog post because I have been sooo exhuasted during this last trimester of my pregnancy. I am 37 weeks now and can’t wait for it all to be over. I actually miss all my makeup and shopping. I was looking through my stash today and thought I would show you all my picks for the spring / summer, even though I don’t get to use them much now as I rarely go out.

The Diorskin Nude BB creme is perfect
for summer because it is light and non greasy. Just make sure to apply spf before using this as this does not have sun protection.

This Giorgio Armani face and eye palette is gorgeous. I especially love the turquoise eye shadow which I use to line under the eyes. This was sold out most places in Dubai and I am so happy I found it after a lot of searching as it is so worth it.

Dior bronzer and blush in Pink Glow. Perfect packaging and even more perfect colors. I love the natural glow it gives to the face. The pink blush is superb.

This Shiseido gold cream shadow is so creamy and easy to use. Perfect wash of color for the lids. The gold color is to die for and just perfect for the summer, with just mascara and bright lips.

I just lovvve pink lipstick for summer and this is one of my favorites- Limecrime lipstick in Great Pink Planet.

No summer makeup is complete without nailpolish and this nailpolish duo in Samba by Dior is perfect. I just feel like going to the beach after applying these.

A cheaper option for nailpolish are these amazing ones from Sally Hansen in Coral Reef and Mellow Yellow. The colors were just too hard to resist but I am yet to try them out.

So this is it for my spring/summer makeup picks. Hope you like it.
