Rimmel Mioisture Renew Lipstick

In Love with Ginger (660)

I was excited to get my hands on the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in the colour ‘In Love with Ginger’ (which is a bright orange).
I applied onto my lips smoothly,  and it provided instant moisture. However, a couple more coats are needed in order to get a solid opaque colour.

The lipstick hardly lasts an hour on your lips before you need to re-apply.

I found the fact that it does not last long incredibly annoying and I believe this lipstick was a waste of my money. I will not be buying it again.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick

120 Cutting Edge

There are no words to express how much I love this lipstick. I have the 120 Cutting Edge colour, which is a dark purple. It looks very vivid against my dark brown skin. Just one coat gives a solid colour. Add a couple more coats, and the lipstick will stay on for HOURS!
This is definitely one of the best purchases I’ve ever made.

Dark and Lovely Braid Conditioning Spray

Dark and Lovely Braids Conditioning Spray

This Dark and Lovely Braids Conditioning Spray has been developed to provide relief for a dry and itchy scalp, as well as to help protect your natural hair under the braids or in a plaited hairstyle.

Any woman who has had braids or cornrows will understand how itchy their scalp can become. This is why braid sprays are so popular.

The Dark and Lovely Braids Conditioning Spray comes in a bottle with a spray nozzle, just as other braid sprays do, and is very easy and comfortable to handle.

I applied it directly to my scalp and immediately felt relief, and a lovely cooling sensation from the spray. It has a lovely, but subtle, fruity scent.

It not only provides relief for my scalp but I also spray it onto my braids, and it gives them a refreshing scent.

This is definitely my favourite Braids Conditioning Spray at the moment and will be buying it again in the future.

Black Opal True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation

If you are looking for a foundation that provides seamless application and perfect looking skin, Black Opal New True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation is the go-to product.

It comes in a glass container with a plastic pump. It comes out in a small amount, preventing the mistake of pumping out too much of the foundation.

I generally avoid using too much foundation, so with one pump, I have enough to put on my face and neck.

It is very easy to apply and is quickly absorbed by the skin. My face instantly looks brighter, probably because of the yellow under-tone of the foundation. I’ve never had problems with large pores, but my skin looks smoother and supple.

My skin remains matte through out the day, if I stay out of the sun. Exposure to the sun or heat will cause shininess when I am wearing this foundation.

It has no scent at all, meaning it is fragrance free. This is probably one of the reasons why my sensitive skin has not reacted badly to this foundation.

I use my fingers to apply the foundation, and it is very quick and easy to wash off with soap and water.

My skin has generally improved since I started using Black Opal New True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation and I will definitely be purchasing it again in the future.

Dr Miracles Daily Moisturizing Gro Oil

Dr. Miracle’s Daily Moisturising Gro Oil

The Dr. Miracle’s Daily Moisturising Gro Oil is meant to help repair damaged hair and promote the growth of healthy hair.
As a person whose hair has been damaged through relaxing, I am always on the hunt for a product that will inject life into my hair.

This hair oil has the usual consistency of any other oil. It however, has a very subtle but pleasant scent.
I apply it directly onto my scalp through the “spouted” end of the bottle and use my fingers to rub the oil onto my scalp and hair.

My scalp instantly feels moisturised and so does my hair. There is no heavy greasiness in my hair, however, the oil gets all over your hands, so you have to make sure you wash them before you touch and stain your clothes and other items.

I have not used it as a hot oil treatment (which you can do), because I do not know how to do a hot oil treatment, unfortunately.

Dr Miracles Daily Moisturizing Lotion

Dr. Miracle’s Daily Moisturising Lotion

As with other hair lotions, the Dr. Miracle’s Daily Moisturising Lotion is a thick creamy consistency.
It does not have a strong smell, but has a subtle fresh scent to it.

The instructions state you should apply a small amount, but the very dry state of my hair tempted me to put pour about a tablespoon sized amount onto my hand.

When applying it straight onto my scalp, there was immediate relief and cooling.
it’s as if my dry scalp had received a good watering.
It was instantly moisturised and my hair was not left out.
My hair was instantly soft and much easier to comb.

Unfortunately for me, applying a moisturising lotion daily is not ideal because it “wets” my hair, meaning it loses its silky straightness. I only use the moisturising lotion after washing my hair and before blow drying it.

Overall, the Dr. Miracle’s Daily Moisturising Lotion is a great product that injects life into dull, dry and brittle hair.
