Aussie Pure Locks Collection

I like to think that I never judge a book by its cover but I’m definitely guilty of judging a shampoo and conditioner by its scent.

I’ve been caught out on more than one occasion by selecting my haircare products based entirely on their enticing scents alone, only to be left with less than impressive locks.

One brand that has never let me down in scent or performance are Aussie and their new Pure Locks Collection is no different.

Comprising of a silicone free shampoo, two air light foam conditioners, a cream conditioner, miracle treatment and a leave in conditioning spray this range has been created to revive hair that has become distressed and dull by daily life.

Daily ‘stuff’ such as pollution, heat and product build up can hold your hair back from being its beautiful self and this collection is designed to help purify, de-stress and rejuvenate your hair, leaving it looking its best.

This collection smells DIVINE! It is slightly less heady than some of Aussie’s other collections, which i really like.  It manages to retain all the gorgeous, sweet fruitiness that I’ve come to associate with the brand but it is also somewhat lighter, both in terms of texture and fragrance actually.

The rich, creamy shampoo features a super lightweight formula to gently yet effectively purify and cleanse your locks while protecting from product build up which can weigh down and dull your hair.

Infused with Kadadu Plum (a miracle fruit native to oz which is full of antioxidants) It lathers beautifully and rinses to leave hair that is squeaky clean and smelling yum.

The Pure Locks Conditioner is a great conditioner thanks to its superior hydrating qualities yet ability to leave your hair feeling light and floaty. 

Finally, my favourite of the three products I tested is the 3 Minute Miracle Treatment.

This intensive bad boy literally creates miracles in just 3 minutes. Applied to damp hair and gently combed through with a comb or tangle teezer brush it gets to work immediately to revive and repair your hair, leaving it silky soft and super shiny.

Perfect for when your hair needs a little extra TLC it is a fabulous weekly treatment.

The Pure Locks rage from Aussie is available now where the shampoo and conditioner cost £3.99 each and the 3 Minute Miracle costs £4.99.

L’Occitane Delightful Body Balm

The Almond collection from L’Occitane is one of my all-time favourite collections across all brands.

I adore its soft, sweet, sensual, aromatic fragrance that instantly helps to relax and unwind my tired body and mind.

You can imagine then how thrilled I was to see that they have recently launched a new Delightful Body Balm within the Almond family.

This decadent and rich balm is perfect for dry, dehydrated skin thanks to its incredible nourishing properties yet is not at all greasy.

Housed within a chic, mint green tin this balm has been formulated with a blend of almond butter and almond oil from Provence.

It melts onto your skin, offering instant comfort and nourishment to your skin while its soft, delicious scent envelopes your senses.

Despite its name, I’d say the balm is actually more of a body butter in texture. Rich and luxurious in texture it literally glides onto your skin, leaving behind its familiar aroma.

The soft cream is quickly absorbed, leaving your skin feeling pampered and gorgeous without a hint of greasiness.

Its not just me that gives it a big thumbs up though, in a satisfaction test of 34 women after 4 weeks 100% said that their skin felt nourished, supple, ultra soft and comfortable.

If you’re skin requires a little more TLC than just a body lotion then this aptly named Delightful Body Balm is the product for you.

L’Occitane’s Delightful Body Balm is available now and costs £26 for 100ml.

Elemis Limited Edition Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

Elemis are supporting Breast Cancer Care for the 18th year running and this year have launched a Limited Edition Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm.

This exquisite balm has been formulated with rare extracts from various roses around the world including English Rose.

Rose and Mimosa waxes are infused with Elderberry, Starflower, Optimega oils and Padina Pavonica to create a deep cleansing balm that dissolves make up, grime and pollutants to leave skin feeling nourished, soothed and glowing.

The packaging design has been created as the result of a collaboration with iconic British fashion house Lily & Lionel (you can see another example of their collaboration HERE) and regardless of how many items of the balm they sell Elemis will donate £25,000 to Breast Cancer Care.

How freakin awesome is that!

The balm costs £68 and you can opt in to donate an additional £1 at point of purchase online. 

I adore this brand and it’s a fantastic charity to support so lets get behind them and know that while you are treating yourself or a loved one, you are also helping support a wonderful charity too.
