AA Skincare Zing Fresh Shampoo Bar review

Hey guys! If you suffer from either oily, dry or damaged hair and/or an itchy scalp, then today’s post is definitely for you!

Today I’m going to be reviewing the AA Skincare Zing Fresh Shampoo Bar which is designed for oily, dry or damaged hair with an itchy scalp. It contains Peppermint Oil and Coconut Oil to soothe itchy scalps and to rejuvenate and add softness to the hair. 

Each Shampoo Bar is designed to last much longer than a 250ml bottle of shampoo, so it’s cost effective, better for the environment due to no plastic packaging and easier for travelling too as it isn't liquid. 

All AA Skincare products are made with natural ingredients and come with no added nasty bits. They are also all cruelty free.

The Zing Fresh Shampoo Bar is a bit like a big green pebble to hold and is 50g, and it comes packaged in a beige AA Skincare cardboard box. It looks like it would smell of citrus, but it smells of peppermint (as you may work out from the inclusion of peppermint oil).

I’ve reviewed a shampoo bar from AA Skincare in the past and I was a big fan. If you have read the review that I wrote about the AA Skincare Twilight Shampoo Bar then you may think that they sound pretty similar. Therefore, I have compiled a bit of info to compare the different products too.

So for this review, I’m going to start by looking at the similarities and differences between the Zing Fresh Shampoo Bar and a couple of others in the range, and then I’ll go into how to use it and the results, ending with information on where to purchase.

Hey guys! Today I’ve got a couple of very different types of products to share with you all from Misfit Cosmetics. The first being the Wake Up Wipes, a beauty product that are handy to take away for festivals or travel, or as a great refreshing beauty product for busy women on the go. The second is their Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder, designed to help to remove stubborn stains on teeth and to give you the feeling of an at home scale and polish.

Information on where to purchase the products is at the end of the post.

MONU Illuminating Primer review

Summer is here, and incase you haven’t heard, here in the UK at the moment we’re having a bit of a heatwave. It’s amazing, but in regards to makeup it can leave a few issues. A couple of those can be how can we stop makeup from melting off your face, or how to get a nice summer glow. Thankfully, the product I’m reviewing today is here to solve both of those problems.

The MONU Illuminating Primer promises to leave you with smooth, illuminated skin, minimised pores and blurred blemishes. It can be used alone or under makeup to extend the life of your makeup throughout the day. 

It contains Mica to create a natural looking glow, Blackcurrant Seed Oil which includes essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6 to maintain the the skin's barrier function and to regain moisture balance, Vitamin E to soothe and to fight free radicals, Zinc Oxide for sun protection (which is SPF15), Hyaluronic Acid for moisture, Cassia Alata Leaf extract for anti-ageing and on the flip side, it is free of parabens.

It comes in a white and grey pump lid bottle that holds 50ml of product, and also a travel size squeeze tube that holds 30ml (which I picked in a previous Latest in Beauty box). The product itself is a thick, almost mousse-like white cream.

Best Beauty Boxes UK

Beauty boxes. What’s not to love?! You get to try new and amazing beauty products tailored to you from the comfort of your own home, and sometimes you get full-size products as well, saving you tons of money.

Beauty box goodies (psst... if you'd like to see more pictures like this, be sure to follow my Instagram)

The issue nowadays though is that there are so many around, and that can make it difficult to choose the perfect one for you. Some people want to choose just one box, some don’t mind subscribing to a bunch. All of us though want to get the most for our money. Today I wanted to help those of you who are on the hunt for your new favourite beauty box by talking about a few of my personal favourites. 

I’ve decided to compile a list of the beauty boxes that I am currently subscribed to, enjoy and therefore recommend to others. There are still beauty boxes out there that I am yet to try and there are new ones appearing all the time, so if you know of one that I’ve not mentioned that you think are worth a recommendation too, please do leave a comment at the end and let everyone know!

For each box, I’ve written the pros and cons so that you can use that to work out which would be the best box for you, and I’ll be showing examples of what products I’ve received from each as well.

All photos featured in this post are from my Instagram feed, so if you like what you see, please do come over and give me a follow for more!

PitRok Crystal Original Natural Deodorant Stick review

Who is loving the beautiful weather? Who isn’t loving the smell of body odour that comes with sweating in the hot weather? Well, if you are one of those who hate body odour but prefer using natural products, then this post is for you.

The PitRok Crystal Original Natural Deodorant Stick is a natural, crystal deodorant that is fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin.  It works by applying a thin layer of mineral salt which is a bacteriostatic agent that prevents odour causing bacteria from growing, and it does not block pores. It is suitable for sensitive skin, is free of Aluminium Zirconium and Aluminium Chlorohydrate, propylene glycol, SLS/SLES, parabens, fragrance and silicones.

When a product has as many 5-star reviews as this one does, it’s worth paying attention to it and checking it out. It definitely captured my attention and I wanted to share my thoughts on it with all of your beautiful faces!

It comes packaged in a shiny, black plastic tube with the PitRok logo in white and gold in the front. It has a screw cap lid and the product itself is a hard, translucent crystal that can be pushed up from the bottom. It hold 100g of product.
