September favourites!

Hello ladies!
A little bit late, here you have my september favourites!

Real techniques Buffing brush
This is the best foundation brush I've ever tried. I always use this in the mornings and gives the most natural finish. It's incredibly soft and gentle. Bristles never fall out when you wash it. 

Yves Rocher Pure Calmille cleanser and toner
My current cleanser. It is so soothing ad calming. It's light and fresh. It has helped so much in re-balancing my face after a bad breakout :/
I use it in the mornings and in the evenings after Bioderma (post here)

Collection 2000 Lasting perfection concealer
I wish I had this in Italy! nothing compares to this liquid concealer. I've got the shade 02 Light and it's a bit darker than my face, but I can barely notice it. It lasts for so long! A bargain!

The Body Shop Vitamin E night cream
I got this 15 ml cream in the Vitamin E kit I got in London (post here), it's perfect for my skin type. Moisturizing enough but not sticky at all. It sinks in so quickly and lasts for more than a month. I think I'll repurchase the full size on the website.

Kiko Eyeshadow 122
I know, it's quite a dead colour, but I found it to be the perfect colour for my crease. I used to apply it through my crease, while on the rest of the lid I put Virgin from the Naked palette. 
It's a taupe matte colour, very pigmented and suitable for day and night looks.

Essence pure skin Anti spot compact powder in 01 beige
This is my go-to foundaion. Although it's meant to be a compact powder, it gives quite a good coverage. So I decided to use it as a foundation, it's light and the right shade for me. Perfect! I apply it with my lovely buffing brush!

So these are my iits for september! 
What are YOUR favourites this month? Make sure you tell me this in the comments! 
Thank you so much for reading!

JASON Restorative Biotin Shampoo review!

Hello ladies!
Today I want to share with you my thoughts about the JASON shampoo I got 2 months ago from I talked to you about it in this post too :)
It's from the Restorative biotin range, which is dedicated to those who have damaged hair. It's paraben, phtalates and sls free and has many diffent plant extracts :)
The website says "JASON Restorative Biotin Pure Natural Shampoo gently cleanses as it restores healthy strength to weak, damaged hair. The thickening properties Biotin and Vitamin B5’s revitalise hair’s elasticity. Ginseng and lavender extracts help repair split ends and minimise future breakage. Fortified with energy, your hair looks healthier and grows stronger".

First off, I have thick hair. Although they should be stronger, they break very easily. They're quite long as well, so they tend to be weak.

My scalp has always tent to be oily while my ends have always been dry. When I started using the JASON shampoo I wasn't very impressed but now that it's been 2 months since I bought it, I can see the difference. My hair are definitely stronger and they are not weak at all, my ends are improved and there are not as many split ends as before. 
My hair are now shiny and smooth but I think this is also due to my Lush and The Body Shop conditioners (review post coming soon).

So, basically I can say that my hair:
  • More shiny
  • Smoother
  • Stronger 
Also, the bottle contains 473 ml of product, which is a huge amount for me! I've been constantly using it since I got it and I'm running out of it just now.
It's not tested on animals!!!! 

Price: 6.29 £ / 8.18 euros

Definitely a big thumbs up!

I really hope this was helpful! Have you ever tried JASON products?
Any other hair care recommendation?
