Hair REV - Hair Supplements

Hair REV - Hair supplements - healthy growing hair - dietary supplements - Hair growth tablets - review

Like most of us I'm always looking for ways to make my hair healthier and grow quicker, spending hundreds on hair products each year, we could be overlooking one of the easiest and cost effective ways to help our hair by getting the right vitamins and nutrients. Although most of us try to get the right vitamins from our diets it's easier said than done. So these supplements make it a lot simpler to ensure you're getting what your hair needs. 

I was sent these supplements by Hair Rev to try. I was really excited to give these ago and see if supplements really do make a difference to my hairs growth and overall condition.

If you read my blog regularly you'll know I'm guilty of one of the worst things you can do to your hair, bleaching it. I have mousy brown hair naturally so to get my silver hair colour my hair needed to be bleached and my roots need doing at least every month. Not the best way to help your hair grow and look healthy. My hair is quite long but it snaps easily and I shed hair constantly. So I couldn't wait to give these a shot, hoping these would help my new hair growth be stronger.

Like with all supplements you should check with your GP before using. So once I'd checked they wouldn't interfere with any of the medication I take. I had my first pill, the tablets are averaged sized about 2cm in length and slipped down easily with a sip of water. You are advised to take the tablets three times a day with food so I kept the bottle in my handbag so I could grab them during the day.

The tablets are filled with vitamins and ingredients added with your hair in mind. So what is in them and why?


  • Biotin: This key supplement helps to improve keratin level in your body, which leads to healthy growing hair. It improves hair elasticity and protects the hair from dryness. It also helps thicken the hair to give the appearance of fullness. No wonder why we've added it in our formula!
  • Zinc: It helps to keep the hair follicles strong, maintaining your hair strong.
  • Calcium: Of all the minerals your body contains, calcium is the most abundant. It is essential for many bodily processes, including healthy hair growth. The calcium in your hair helps to stimulate communication between cells, thereby promoting hair growth and healthy follicles.
  • Folic Acid: This is important in maintaining the colour of your hair and promoting hair growth.
  • Vitamin B: Vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12 are all antioxidant and all play a vital role in healthy hair growth. Deficiency in these vitamins can lead to hair loss, so you’d better be taking them seriously!
  • Vitamin A: This vitamin is another antioxidant, great for your hair and scalp health as it prevents it drying out.
  • Vitamin C: Vitamin C deficiencies can cause hair that is weak, lusterless, and prone to breakage. And that’s the opposite of what we are looking for!
  • Vitamin D: It helps the body absorb calcium (which is great as our formula also has calcium!) and prevents hair shedding.


 … And a lot of vitamins!

It took two weeks for me to really notice any difference, however my hair seemed shiner and weirdly less knotty. My hair appeared stronger and there was a lot less breakage, which is exactly was hoping to achieve. I can;t say I noticed my hair had grown quicker than previously, yet I imagine you would need to be taking the supplements for slightly longer to notice real changes of growth. I also noticed all my other body hair appeared to grow quicker so I do think it was making a difference lol.

Overall I am really impressed with the Hair REV supplements and they have really made a difference to my hair. So if your looking for a way to improve the condition of your hair it may well be worth investing in supplements. I have 3 exclusive codes for you to use, if you want to try out HairRev for yourself and giving your hair a boost.

La Roche- Posay Micellar Make up Remover Gel

La Roche - Posay - Combination skin - sensitive skin - normal skin - french skincare - French Pharmacy - Escentual - review - swatch - make up remover - cleanser - micellar gel - Make up Remover Micellar water gel

Whether you love skincare regimes or find it all a bit of a faff. It's a part of any beauty lovers routine that we all know we should be doing. I have a real love//hate relationship with skincare, I love the difference it makes to my skin and when I have the time I really enjoy getting out all my lotions and potions. I hate it when I'm tired or in a rush and I'd rather be doing anything rather than carrying out a long skincare routine. Rather than reaching for the dreaded face wipes what else can we do? La Roche - Posay have come up with a revolutionary new way to remove your make up.

Could La Roche - Posay Physiologique Make -up Remover Gel, a no rinse cleansing gel be the answer to our tired night time routine? The La Roche - Posay Physiologique Make -up Remover Gel* is a fuss free gel that is applied to a damp face then wiped off with a cotton wool pad.

Cased in a blue coloured, easy to use pump bottle. The gel itself is clear yet in the bottle the gel looks like a bottle of cheap hair gel lol. It doesn't however have the same nasty ingredients. The gel is free from soap, alcohol and has no colourants or parabens. This with its physiological PH and La Roche - Posay Thermal spring water, makes it perfect for even sensitive skin.

La Roche-Posay Make-Up Remover Micellar Water Gel is a gel facial cleanser which gently cleanses normal to combination sensitive skin. The physiological formulation with La Roche-Posay thermal spring water contains cleansing agents selected for optimal tolerance, high make-up removal power whilst hydrating and soothing the skin.

The directions on the bottle are ridiculously unclear stating "apply to wet face. No rinsing." To use I simply wet my face after removing my eye make up (with my facial make up still in tact) Then apply a few pumps of the gel to my hands and gently apply the gel to my face. Then with a cotton wool pad wipe over my face removing the gel and make up at the same time. I then repeat again and my skin is make up free.

It felt really cooling on the skin and soothed any irritated patches. It's not at all harsh and has a pleasant, subtle scent. After the second cleanse my skin feels really clean without feeling dry. I'm really enjoying using this, I found it does take a few goes to remove medium to heavy make up. I don't know if this is because it's so gentle.

Overall I really love how gentle and soothing it is to the skin. It still takes a little while to be make up free, so it doesn't exactly answer my prayers for quick, one wash make up remover. It does however make cleansing a breeze and leaves your skin feeling amazing. It's perfect for the summer months when make up tends to be lighter and the cooling sensation is godsend during the hotter weather.

To get this and other La Roche - Posay products. Check out Escentual for their amazing offers on French Pharmacy products throughout June

Have you tried this? What skincare products are you loving? What French Pharmacy products do you swear by? How do you remove your make up when you can't be bothered? Let me know all your thoughts by commenting below.

Naked basics 2

Naked 2 basics - Urban Decay - Matte eyeshadow - eyeshadow palette - swatches - review - make up - neutral tones

After owning the naked basics palette for some time and using it on an almost daily basis I thought it was definitely time I invested in the second basic palette. Although quite similar to the first neutral based naked basics palette, the shades are slightly warmer toned yet still taupe based. Just like the first palette you get one satin and 5 matte eyeshadows.

It comes in a small, golden brown slightly rubbery feeling case with a Naked 2 basics written across it. It's the perfect size for popping in your bag and the big mirror makes touch ups out and about a breeze. One of the reasons I loved the first naked palette was the formula of the shadows. They  are soft and easy to blend and this palette is no different. Unlike other matte eyeshadows I have tried they aren't at all chalky and there isn't much fallout at all. Again a big thumbs up from me Urban Decay.

Skimp - A pale nude satin, I'd describe it as a light peachy toned beige.
Stark - A nude- pink matte, I'd call it a light muted peach.
Frisk - A warm grey matte, when swatched it's a light taupe/grey.

Cover - A muted red- brown matte, I'd call it a tanned warm toned brown.
Primal -  A muted brown matte, I'd say it's a medium/ dark brown.
Undone - A deep, smoky brown matte, It's a dark greyish brown.

All the shades are really pigmented on my skin and last a good 7-8 hours before fading. Undone is the hardest to work with as it's the darkest shade and requires more blending to get an even finish. Yet this isn't the end of the world and I have found this to be the case with most darker matte shadows.

I wear a neutral eye almost everyday and you can create a variety of nude toned looks with this palette. So I'm really glad, I bought this. I don't however think you need both the basic palettes.The palettes are really similar, yet if you love matte eyeshadows you can't get get better than Urban Decays mattes. So like me you will be more than happy to own both palettes.

Do you own either of the basic palettes? Which do you prefer? What is your all time fave naked palette? Let me know all your thoughts by commenting below.

Lots of Love,
