Lush Retread Hair Conditioner

My hair texture is changing at the moment... to be more precise, the changes started when I went back to Hong Kong during my Xmas holiday.

My hair has always been dry, frizzy and lack of moisture, so anything that says "hydrating", "nourishing", "repair & moisturise" would be right up my street. I always go for thick conditioner, I like it so thick that it can hold my hair up to a bun while in the shower.

While I was in Hong Kong for my holiday, my hair suddenly turned quite greasy so I changed to the light and refreshing Bumble & Bumble Seaweed shampoo and conditioner (my blog post here). I thought the changes was due to the differences in weather between Hong Kong and London.

When I came back to London recently, I went back to my old routine using the extra hydrating conditioner, but I found that my hair didn't seem to like the heavy conditioning anymore! So I was looking for a lighter conditioner and I found Lush Retread Hair Conditioner.

What I love about this hair conditioner is that it gives just the right amount of nourishing quality to make my hair feel moisturised without the heaviness that may drag my hair down. My hair feels so soft and light afterwards.

The texture of Retread is still thick enough to hold my hair up into a bun in the shower, but not as thick as some other conditioner that it could plaster my hair together. Retread smells quite nice too! It has soy milk, olive, jojoba and avocado oils in it to give hair a deep conditioning, yet the lightness comes from the seaweed and lanolin base.

My old extra hydrating conditioner will now turn into my weekly treatment, as for everyday use Retread is the winner!!

Budget Buy: MUA nail polish in Natural Days

When I was in Superdrug to buy the Tiffany colours (NYC nail polishes  - check out my blog post here ), as the offer was 3 for 2 across all nail polishes, I picked up a MUA polish as my freebie. I saw this pastel baby pink colour in Natural Days. The colour looks really cute in the bottle.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
