Christmas is coming…

One thing I love about October (and even a bit before), is the launch of all the Christmas goodies and gift sets! This is my first Christmas as an Arbonne consultant and the excitement around the launch of the festive range is huge amongst Independent Consultants and clients alike 🙂 This weekend I was able to sample the gift range and oh there is so much to share!  I’ve picked out some of my favourites that I’ll be sending this year… Joy & Wonder Hair & Body Set, £43 This is a lovely set for anyone who wants to take care of hair and body with simple easy-to-use products… if you know anyone who moans about the condition of their hair, or complains of dry skin in winter, this is the gift for them! Argan and Abyssinian oils, with ylang-ylang, gardenia and Australian sandalwood blend together to give us fantastic hydration and nourishment – the hair oil is a generous size and a little goes a very long way with the body butter, so this will last throughout the cold winter days! If your friend likes Moroccanoil products this is a great choice.   Sky for Men Gift Set, £46 The Sky for Men Cologne is a great scent and this season Arbonne have brought us a fabulous set for men in this fresh, clean fragrance. Suitable for all ages (who’ve started shaving!), the set includes a Shave Gel, After Shave Balm and Body Wash.  The Cologne is available separately at £41.   Heart of Gold Palette, £43 A gorgeous palette of shimmery baked eyeshadows… these blend beautifully and...
PurelyArgan Hair Conditioner

PurelyArgan Hair Conditioner

Argan oil is an extremely popular ingredient for hair care at the moment, with many brands concentrating on specific ranges to include it. PurelyArgan concentrate on the oil itself, offering 2 products – the oil and a hair conditioner – at first we wondered what would be different with PurelyArgan compared to the other popular products, especially the heavily-marketed Moroccanoil. We were in for a treat 🙂 We’ve been very impressed with PurelyArgan’s conditioner – a rich yet lightweight consistency that is easily absorbed onto the hair without any stickiness. Admittedly it does have an odd scent – sort of soapy, and if we were choosing just on scent the Moroccanoil is slightly more favourable.  But scent wears off – it’s not *that* important against all the other necessities of a conditioner! What we liked best of all about PurelyArgan was the ease with with hair could be styled and how it held its style.  We also found that we weren’t washing our hair as often, we could get away with an extra day if we needed to – this is in complete contrast to the Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner which had most of us washing our hair more often. Flyaway hair wasn’t weighed down at all, in fact it seemed much more under control – hair was still flyaway, perhaps a bit fluffy, but hair looked shinier, healthier and more natural. After just one application, styling and a healthy look were obvious.  After a couple of weeks hair appears to be stronger with less breakage, even on hair that is subject to a lot of heat styling such...
Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner

Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner

Mixed reviews on this one… some of our testers love it, finding it leaves hair soft, shiny and healthy-looking.  For others, especially those with extremely dry or colour-damaged hair, they found it did not provide enough nourishment for their hair, though it did make it more manageable. Rich in argan oil, keratin and fatty acids we thought this conditioner would offer better results for badly damaged hair, so we were a little disappointed, however, this is a good conditioner for those with hair in good condition to maintain and help prevent breakage. When combined with the Moisture Repair Shampoo results are much better, though some users who are prone to greasy roots found they had to wash their hair more often as hair would appear greasier quicker.
