I thought I would give Zerreau Waterless Shampoo Foam a try because washing my long, crazy-thick hair (even with a pull down seat in the shower) can be very fatiguing for me.

I used this when my roots where getting a little oily but the rest of my hair was ok. The foam is really easy to use and has a beautiful scent of coconut, which lasts for hours. It dried quicker than I expected and made my hair appear clean and shiny.

I say ‘appear’ because around four hours later my roots looked the wrong kind of shiny and split into oily strands again, rather than looking smooth and clean.

Conclusion

The equivalent of Febreeze for hair.

It really does depend on why you are using this. If you are a gym bunny or commute to work amidst traffic fumes or work in a strong smelling environment this ‘shampoo’ might be really useful to you. If your hair is very dry and frizzy between washes I recommend a nourishing oil (Zerreau do a shampoo for ‘textured’ hair but I don’t hold out much hope for it’s effectiveness) and if your roots are greasy I recommend Batiste dry shampoo.

Rating (for me personally) 2/5

Soap & Glory 5-in-1 Magnetizing Micellar Make Up Remover & The Rushower Dry Shampoo review

Soap & Glory 5-in-1 Magnetizing Micellar Make Up Remover

I use this when I have a face full of makeup and it is incredibly good at removing it. I use this some evenings to balance my skin when my T-zone is too oily and/or needs some gentle exfoliation. I wouldn’t recommend using this every single evening unless you apply a night moisturiser straight afterward as I woke up with very dry skin when I skipped the moisturiser before bed.

The Rushower Dry Shampoo

The Bergamot and Rose sent is pretty and fresh. The spray is very fine so it’s easy to use without ending up looking like it’s snowed. I found that I had to use a little more than my favourite dry shampoo to absorb oil but it was easy to style afterward and looked healthy and shiny. Unfortunately, the effect only lasted a day and my hair looked greasy and flat again. After I’ve used this up I’ll go back to using Batiste, which last for two days and smells wonderfully tropical.

Soap and Glory – The Perfect Ten Limited Edition Shadow Palette

closed palette

The amount of random, individual eyeshadows I have is ridiculous so I thought I’d get a general more coherent palette. When I looked at this online I liked the mixture of matte and shimmer shades.

Something I dislike about this palette is that Soap & Glory have included a light matte shade, a warmer matte shade and a black matte shade but they’ve left out the medium and/or darker matte shade. So what do I use to create a cut crease and/or add depth then, black?!

Another thing I disliked about this palette is the fall out of the powder, even after I’d tapped the brush. The eyeshadow ended up on my cheeks, on my clothes and on my eyebrows.

Something I actually hate about this palette is the lack of depth in the pigment of each shadow. You know when you use mineral makeup and it becomes almost translucent when you use the flash to take a photo? Well, that’s what these are like normally, without any flash! I wanted to do swatches on my arm but the colours simply didn’t show up – not just on camera but in real life! Through trial and error I learned that wetting the brush really made a difference to the depth of colour but then I couldn’t blend it at all. I ended up just doing a big sweep of one colour on my eyelids, otherwise it looked clumsy and stripy.

I do actually like the packaging as it’s really functional and light-weight. So it seems I have a palette which will give me good pale matte eyeshadows to use under my other shadows to intensify the colour and a few subtle shimmery ones. Does it earn it’s place in my already over crowded makeup bag though – nah!

I would recommend this palette if you have a very light skin tone and want to add some warmth as it might actually show up on you.

Rating Shame I can’t physically give this half a heart
