bhave Rescue Intense Repair Shampoo
bhave Rescue Intense Repair Conditioner
bhave Deep Intense Conditioning Masque
I originally won a set of bhave Rescue hair products from Seduced By Beauty blog. It is not a product range I would have bought myself due to its expensive cost BUT having now used this product range and seen first hand its results on my hair it is my absolute holy grail brand of hair products! This range of products has tamed my frizz like no other products ever have!
If any one reading this has fine hair that tends to get frizzy and generally not behave (pun intended) then the bhave product range is worth a try especially prior to special occasions when you need your hair looking its best.
A cheaper way of trying these products rather than buying the full sized versions first up, is to purchase a travel set of 5 products from the range.
The cheapest place I've found to purchase bhave from is Alive Skin & Hair. They seem to price their products about $10 cheaper than the salons. Click HERE to shop. You might just find that bhave products are your holy grail hair products too, just like I did!
However having said the above, I don't use these products every single hair wash due to their expense but before any event or special occasion this is the shampoo, conditioner and serum (the serum is not an empty for me this month) I will always use. The bhave product range gives me salon fresh looking hair, it smooths my hair, gives it shine, nourishes and repairs it. My hair looks visibly better after I use these products! No wonder they have achieved holy grail status with me!
Repurchase? Absolutely YES! I have already repurchased them and I have also been lucky enough to win a travel set of bhave products from Bottled Beauty Blog. Whenever I see a competition for this brand's products I will always enter it! I can't recommend these products highly enough!
label.m Treatment Shampoo
I bought this shampoo a long time ago from my local Toni & Guy salon. I finished the conditioner first, as I always do and this leftover shampoo was left languishing on my bathroom shelf for ages. After a concerted effort to use up more of my already opened products I've now finally used it up.
Repurchase? No. I no longer frequent the Toni & Guy salon near me as it's closed down and this shampoo wasn't amazing enough for me to track down a new supplier of it.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Conditioner
I received this full sized conditioner and matching shampoo in a Marie Claire The Parcel subscription box. I liked this conditioner and found it helped with reducing my hair's frizz and smoothing my hair but not quite to the extent of my holy grail bhave product range.
Repurchase? Probably yes, to use as my regular conditioner whilst saving the more expensive bhave conditioner for special occasions. I do still have some more already opened, almost finished hair products to finish off first.

I use this BB cream when I am in a hurry on work mornings. It is a super multi-tasking BB cream with an in built SPF 20. I find it quick, easy, convenient and effective to use.
Repurchase? Already have.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Sample
Giorgio Armani Fluid Master Primer Sample
I'd read quite a few raving reviews of the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation so I obtained these samples to try it for myself.
Repurchase? After trying these samples and finding them to be every bit as good as the reviews I'd read, although I didn't have any intention of buying these luxury products originally, I couldn't help but buy them. I guess that's what the retailers rely on when they give you samples of their products to trial. Shhh, don't tell my hubby whatever you do!
|February Makeup Remover Empties|
This is such a popular product, I'm sure you have all tried it for yourselves by now so I won't say any more about it, except it's effective and I love it.
Repurchase? Yes, after finishing off my similar Bioderma Hydrabio H2O I will be repurchasing the more reasonably priced Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water again as I find this equally as good as the more expensive Bioderma product.
Swisspers Makeup Pads
I found these makeup pads to be effective, soft and strong. I have no complaints about them.
Repurchase? To be honest, I'm not really that fussed on what brand of makeup pads I buy. It really just depends on which brand I see first when I need new ones. I'm sure I will repurchase this brand again at some stage but I won't go out hunting for it above all other brands.
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
I received two sample packets of these makeup remover towelettes in two Marie Claire The Parcel subscription boxes. Once again I found these products to be effective and had no complaints about them.
Repurchase? Similar to the makeup pads I don't have a strong loyalty to one particular brand of makeup remover towelettes. Thus although I'm sure I will eventually repurchase this product I won't go searching for it above all other brands.
|February Cleansing Empties|
This product was an effective cleanser but as it is hypoallergenic it is free from any fragrances. I don't however have sensitive skin and don't need my products to be hypoallergenic. As regular readers of Fabulous and Fun Life know, I love fragrances. The scent of a product is an important aspect of the product for me that adds an element of luxury and enjoyment to it for me.
Repurchase? No. I prefer scented body washes.
MOR Triple-Milled Soap - Snow Gardenia
Unlike the last product listed, this one has the most divine scent of gardenias. It filled my bathroom with an amazing floral scent, so much so that I found myself wandering into the bathroom just to sniff this soap - lol! Unlike a lot of soaps it was also nourishing and hydrating, thanks to its inclusions of shea butter, vitamin E and sweet almond oil.
Repurchase? Definintely, as this MOR triple-milled Snow Gardenia soap added such an indulgent touch of luxury to my bathroom. Whenever I have friends or relatives sleeping over at my home I always make sure I have a divinely scented soap like this one in the guest bathroom for their use.

Banana Boat Sport SPF 30+ Spray
I found this sunscreen to be effective and for my own use I loved the spray application of it with no need to rub it in. However I was horrified watching my twelve year old son liberally spraying it into the air with most of it missing his body completely!
Repurchase? Probably not as I'm now using SPF 50 sunscreens and also because I hate wastage. I would only buy a spray sunscreen for myself now and not for my kids. My kids will be using the traditional rub in sunscreens again from now on.
Hamilton Sensitive Sunscreen SPF 30+ Samples
These were languishing at the bottom of my daughter's bag and are out of date so out they go! Click here to see my recent post on the 9 big sunscreen mistakes you need to avoid making.
Repurchase? No as I'm making an effort to purchase only SPF 50+ sunscreens.
