Tried and Tested: Paul Mitchell Limited Edition STYLE DUOS

I love trying new hair products and today I would like to tell you about a limited edition style Duos from ‘ON THE HORIZON’ Paul Mitchell’s range.

Paul Mitchell launched 3 different styling duos to meet the needs of its clients:

  1. Refresh and boost
  2. Stay Smooth
  3. Voluminous Vibes

I decided to try 2 of these limited edition sets.

Firstly, I tried ‘Refresh and boost’ set consisting of:

  • Paul Mitchell’s ‘Super Skinny’ Serum – this lightweight serum conditions your hair and leaves them shiny and silky. It creates frizz-free effect in any weather. In addition, this serum also speeds up drying so you will get lovely smooth results in less time. It comes in a handy 150ml bottle with a pump.
  • Paul Mitchell’s ‘Hot Off The Press’ -is a great heat protector so if you style your hair often then you should definitely try it. It protects your hair from damage caused by heat styling and boosts your hair’s strength.

Secondly, I tried ‘Stay Strong’ hairspray and ‘Dry Wash’ that are part of the ‘Refresh and Boost’ set.

  • Paul Mitchell’s ‘Express Dry Stay Strong Hairspray’ is a strong-hold spray that offers the ultimate style support and provides maximum control and volume. I really love this product as it holds my hair perfectly in place and adds extra movement to it.
  • Paul Mitchell’s ‘Dry Wash’. This is definitely the best dry shampoo I’ve ever used. It has a lovely, clean hair smell and it leaves my hair looking like they’ve just been washed. It is colourless so it is ideal for anyone and it doesn’t matter what colour hair they have. It is suitable for all hair types and it makes my hair look beautiful and fresh.

Result:

No matter what your styling concerns are, Paul Mitchell’s limited edition sets provide something for anyone. I’ve been using them for a while now and it would be difficult to move back to using any other products. I truly recommend them and as the products come in summer limited edition sets you are able to buy them at the special price now.

Tried and Tested: Paul Mitchell’s Limited Edition Hair Brushes

Today I would like to tell you about a limited edition Hair Brushes from Paul Mitchell’s collection. They are bohoo-inspired to help you create festival ready looks at the comfort of your home and on the go.

Paul Mitchell launched two summery hair brushes. I have fine, long hair I just love their Limited Edition 427 Paddle Brush. It is designed for medium to long hair styles and gives your hair a movement and volume that other brushes won’t. It is perfect for blow-drying my hair and it provides a nice, smooth finish. It is pretty lightweight to enable anyone, painless styling.

The second brush that Paul Mitchell launched this summer is a Limited Edition 413 Sculpting Brush. This brush is an essential in any handbag and its vibrant coral colour makes it looks very stylish. It detangles your wet or dry strands in no time. It is also great for blow-drying and finishing and as it is quite slim, it has a permanent place in my gym bag.

Result:

Paul Mitchell’s limited edition brushes are the new essential tools for anyone who wishes to get a nice, smooth finished styles and add some movement to their hair. They are this summer’s ‘must-have accessories’.

I hope you enjoyed reading this review!

Tried and Tested: Paul Mitchell’s Styling range and Oxygentix Acne Control Foundation

This week, I would like to introduce you to a few products from Paul Mitchell’s styling range in addition to Oxygentic foundation.

If you are reading my blog regularly then you should already know that I have become a massive fan of Paul Mitchell’s hair-care range thus I wanted to check if his styling range is as good as his shampoos and conditioners.

I ordered the following 4 styling products:

  • Paul Mitchell’s Flexible Style ‘Sculpting Foam’ – Enhances texture with long-lasting memory while at the same time it helps to control frizz. It also adds shine and balance moisture as it contains Hawaiian awapuhi which helps to prevent moisture loss. Its styling and bodifying agents combined with panthenol provide a touchable hold.
  • Paul Mitchell’s Express Style ‘Quick slip’ – Provides flexible hold, adds definition, conditions and helps protect hair as it contains some softening conditioners and UV protection. This amazing product left my hair looking and feeling healthy.
  • Paul Mitchell’s Express Dry ‘Stay Strong’ Hairspray – Strong-hold spray that offers the ultimate style support and provides maximum control and volume.

  • Paul Mitchell’s Express Dry ‘Dry Wash’- Dry Waterless Shampoo. Its dry formula instantly left my hair looking and feeling freshly washed.

I decided to try them during my recent trip to Paris. After I washed my hair, I applied Paul Mitchell’s Flexible Style ‘Sculpting Foam’ to the roots of my hair to lift them up and add some volume. I also applied a few drops of Paul Mitchell’s Express Style ‘Quick slip’ throughout the length of my hair and then I dried it. Once my hair was blow-dried, I applied some hairspray to keep it in place. It has some humidity-resistant ingredients to help fight frizz so even though it was 29 C degrees in Paris my hair remained bouncy and looked healthy during the day. As evidence, I am posting a couple of photos taken in the morning, in the afternoon and during the evening.

On our last day, I was too lazy to wash my hair and style it so I sprayed a bit of Paul Mitchell’s Express Dry ‘Dry Wash’-my lifeless hair, not only looked revived but also smelt lovely. What I really liked about it was that it has colourless formula which leaves no residue.

Verdict:

I really enjoy using Paul Mitchell’s products-they are cheaper than some other hair care ranges that I used to use and the same results. You need to try them!

Secondly, I would like to tell you about Oxygentix, the world’s most breathable foundation. Oxygenetix, known for its original breathable foundation launched its first treatment foundation product, Oxygenating Acne Control Foundation recently. It is clinically proven to treat acne. As I had a very stressful few weeks and got a few breakouts I was really looking forward to trying a sample of this foundation. As I worked for Christian Dior previously, I was loyal to their Capture Total Serum foundation for ages but the concept of breathable foundation intrigued me thus I decided to try it.

Oxygenetix Acne Control Foundation helps clear the skin as it contains 2% Salicylic Acid and uniquely delivers proprietary acne control ingredients through a patented, breathable delivery system. The hero ingredient in all Oxygenetix products is the pro-healing, patent-pending Ceravitae a super charged oxygen complex that promotes collagen cell production and connective tissue growth in compromised skin. Oxygenetix Breathable Foundation’s are available in a wide array of 14 shades so they would fit most skin tones.

Formula:

Oxygenetix Acne Control Foundation has Aloe Barbadensis gel-based formula that provides anti-bacterial qualities due to the fact that it contains 2% Salicylic Acid. It took three years in the making and it is transfer and water resistant, which allows it to stay on for hours even in humid environments.The product should only be used until the acne has cleared, then the original Oxygenating Foundation should be applied.

image

Verdict:

I really like Oxygenetix Acne Control Foundation as it has a really light texture and medium coverage. Its natural components make it virtually a second skin and foundation doesn’t leave a ‘fake’ powdery residue on my face. Using skincare products to eliminate acne and then applying a heavy, nu-breathable foundation, is a step in the wrong direction. Oxygenating Acne Control Foundation will not only helped me to  conceal acne but also helped me to clear it. My face now looks fresh and young and the blemishes that I recently have seem like a bad dream that luckily ended.

Tried and tested: Paul Mitchell Color repair haircare, Help: Beautify skin supplement

This week I would like to tell you about Paul Mitchell’s Color Repair range and Help: Beautify Skin Supplement.

To start with, some of you might remember, I recently tried Paul Mitchell’s extra body range and I loved it. Just a couple of weeks ago I finally sorted out my hair before the wedding so when I had my blond highlights done, it was a no-brainer and I decided to try this range. All products were tested by an established, independent third-party laboratory.

image.jpeg
I ordered a three-step system that promised:

  • To Keep the vibrant colour for up to 9 weeks;
  • To Prevent thermal damage by 86%;
  • 88% less hair breakage;
  • To add 59% more shine.

The products that were included in the three-step system and should be used together to get the desired results are:

Step One: Paul Mitchell’s ULTIMATE COLOR REPAIR SHAMPOO

It is a gentle shampoo based on a blend of natural extracts that protects, replenishes and helps repair colour-treated hair.

Step Two: Paul Mitchell’s ULTIMATE COLOR REPAIR CONDITIONER

This amazing conditioner contains some powerful antioxidants provides UV protection to help prevent colour fade and damage.

After using Paul Mitchell’s shampoo and conditioner my hair is always soft, hydrated, shiny and manageable.

Step Three: Paul Mitchell’s ULTIMATE COLOR REPAIR TRIPLE RESCUE

The last step of Paul Michell’s ritual is a dual-phase spray protects against excessive heat that can damage colour-treated hair and lead to dull, faded strands. This amazing product protects against excessive heat that can damage color-treated hair and conditions it with Quinoa Color Repair complex.

Verdict:

My hair never looked glossier and healthier. I am delighted with the results I achieved with the products from Paul Mitchell’s Color Repair range. I would recommend them to anyone especially if you are planning to have your hair coloured anytime soon then you should definitely try Paul Mitchell’s three-step hair-ritual. I am already looking forward to trying some styling products from his range.

Secondly, I would like to tell you about ‘help: beautify skin’-a daily jelly supplement for skin from Works with water.

IMG_8707

I was certain that I wanted to try this supplement when I read about its formula and the effects I could expect. As all the brides do, I wanted to look my best during the wedding so I got 2 boxes consisting of 14 sachets (10g each). When I started taking the supplement, I was getting married in a less than 3 weeks so I took 2 sachets per day in the run-up to the wedding to give my skin a boost of nutrition. The jellies are really tasty and have a delicious apple flavour. They can be eaten straight from the packet or popped into the fridge and then eaten chilled. They are formulated to help achieve a healthy, glowing complexion from the inside out.

The formula of ‘help: beautify skin’ consist of patented blend: PravenAGE™ and contains CoEnzymeQ10, Marine collagen, Resveratrol, Aloe Vera and Vitamin C. All of these natural ingredients are proven to deliver visible anti-ageing skin benefits.

Verdict:

You can judge the results for yourself nevertheless on my wedding day my skin looked radiant, fresh and the small lines I had under my eyes appeared visibly reduced. Help: beautify skin is a great supplement if you wish to get a plumper, more rejuvenated skin and a younger looking, healthy complexion.

Tried and Tested: Paul Mitchell hair-care

This week I would like to tell you about Paul Mitchell’s hair-care. I normally use either Kerastase or Tony & Guy’s ranges but I wanted to try something new so I got some products from Paul Mitchell. As I have quite fine hair, I went for 4 products from Paul Mitchell’s Extra Body Range and 2 products from Extra Strength Range.

The products that I tested were:

Extra-Body Daily Shampoo – is a great volumizing shampoo that cleanses and adds a body to fine to normal hair.My hair smelt lovely and had a lovely, healthy shine after I used it combined with the conditioner from the same range.

Extra-Body Daily Rinse – is a great daily conditioner that de-tangles and adds volume to fine hair, leaving locks full of body and shine. In addition, it helps repair and prevent damage caused by blow-drying and styling.

Thicken-up styling liquid – is a great styling product that made my thin hair feel thicker. What’s more important, my hair bounced and looked healthy as it added some extra shine and definition to it.

I finished styling my hair with a great Extra-Body Firm Finishing Spray that fights frizz, boosts volume and adds shine. The ingredients such as panthenol and hydrolyzed wheat protein build body so my hair looked and felt thicker.

Secondly, I would like to tell you about 2 products from the Super Strong range:

Super Strong Daily Conditioner – its formula repairs and protects worn-down locks, leaving hair soft, smooth and moisturized. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes rebuild the internal structure of hair and get a soft and smooth hair.

Super Strong Treatment – it is a great treatment (should be used weekly) that strengthens and rebuilds troubled hair, improving elasticity and protecting from further damage. In addition, it made my hair more manageable and easier to style.

I would definitely try some more products from Paul Mitchell’s ranges as they made my feel look and feel beautiful. You should all give this brand a go-they have lots of different ranges to choose from.
