Hair and Me! Overall review!

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog!

I hope you’ve been liking my posts recently, I’ve been trying to post more often for you guys so let me know what you think.

Recently I was gifted an amazing pack by Hair and me , so I thought I would share what I thought of them, what I recommend and so on!

In my box of goodies, I was given;

– Blonde shampoo and conditioner

– peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner

-peppermint hair mask

– detangler brush

What was my favourite;

I think my favourite would have to be the blonde shampoo and conditioner, it doesn’t overtone my hair but it keeps it nice and bright and also leaves my hair feeling conditioned and supple.

I did love the peppermint shampoo for the change in seasons though, both my partner and I both get a dry flaky scalp in winter ❄️

I noticed a major difference in the amount of dandruff I had after a week of using it as well as the irritation my scalp gets as well. In conjunction with the mask as well my scalp and hair was feeling fresh and new!

I also found using the detangling brush instead of my usual hair brush my hair was easy to brush and was left less frizzy and required less styling. Which is always a plus!

Review;

Peppermint Shampoo and conditioner; 8/10

What I love; it leaves me feeling refreshed and improves my dry flaky scalp.

What I would change; the peppermint scent is really subtle, and I love peppermint so the only thing I would change is more minty fresh 😂

Blonde shampoo and conditioner; 9/10

What I love; it doesn’t overtone my hair and leaves it soft!

What I would change; absolutely nothing, it is perfect!

Peppermint mask; 8/10

What I love; it makes my hair soft fresh.

What I would change; again I would love it to be more minty.

Detangling brush; 9/10

What I love; absolutely everything.

What I would change; nothing. It’s perfect how it is!

Overall, I think the brand is amazing; the products are high quality and look amazing as well.

It is obvious a lot of time and effort was put into creating the products as well as packing them and sending them.

Has anyone tried Hair and me before?

What did you think? Do you have any products you recommend?

Esmi Skincare; Review and Tips for using them!

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my Blog, I have been trying to be more active with my Blog Posts, so I hope you guys are liking them. Let me know what you want to see more of. I am also hoping to start Youtube again so let me know if there is any videos you want to see.

Todays review is of the Esmi Skincare skin treats!

I tried out the Exfoliating Charcoal Serum, Brightening Serum and the Anti Redness serum as well. The charcoal one came with a buffing brush as well.

Reviews; 

Overall;

They work well under makeup, leave the skin feeling fresh and give instant visual results on the skin.

For the charcoal serum you have to use the buffing brush otherwise you will have a dark tint on the skin. I noticed my skin did purge a bit after the first week of using it. Then it settled down and my skin was left soft and clear. The anti redness serum is a minty serum and left my skin feeling cool and fresh under my makeup too. The brightening serum was fresh and worked great under my eyes to brighten my dark circles.

The Anti redness was probably my favourite serum, it gave the most visual results and left my skin feeling amazing.

My least favourite would be the charcoal, mainly because it really had to be buffed into the skin if you weren’t wearing makeup otherwise it kind of looked like muddy fake tan.

What I rate Them;

Charcoal; 9/10 

Brightening; 8/10

Anti Redness: 9/10

Here is their link if you want to check them out; they also have other skincare and makeup.

The Secret to Flawless Skin?

Hi everyone,

Welcome back! I have a few exciting Blog posts on the way so make sure to keep tuned!

Also if you aren’t already be sure to follow my Instagram to check out my latest posts, plus you don’t want to miss the giveaways I have coming!

@thatbloggerjade

Tonight’s blog is about the new Mecca Maxima Banana Bake products that I was lucky enough to be sent to try. So I thought I would share my honest thoughts and review.

For $50AUD The products in the set include;

– Banana bake loose powder

– banana bake setting spray

– bake and set brush

Also available is the Banana bake pressed powder which is $24AUD.

I have tried and used each product available in the Banana bake range and here is what I think of them;

Banana bake loose powder

The banana bake loose powder is a lightweight slightly glowy setting powder, a little goes a long way and it leaves the under eyes area looking smooth and bright.

What I love about it;

It has a glowy finish to make them complexion look fresh.

What I don’t like about it;

I feel like it lowers my concealer coverage under the eyes slightly.

I rate it;

8/10

Banana bake setting spray

The banana bake setting spray is a great way to keep your makeup in place!

What I like about it;

I never get oily when I use it!

What I don’t like about it;

Its main ingredient is alcohol so not so great for any dry skin babes!

I rate it;

5/10

Bake and Set Brush

The bake and set brush is a two sided brush designed to pick up the perfect amount of powder.

What I love about it;

The bristles are soft and it’s so cheap to buy.

What I don’t like;

I wish the fluffy side of the brush was bigger.

I rate it;

8/10

Banana bake pressed powder

The banana bake pressed powder is similar to the loose in the way that it has a glowy finish. I find the powder to be softer and higher in pigment.

What I like about it;

It leaves the skin looking flawless.

What I don’t like about it;

Honestly nothing, the pressed powder doesn’t have the fault that I found in the loose. It doesn’t lower the coverage it actually makes it more full coverage.

I rate it;

10/10

Overall;

The products are beautiful, high quality and so cheap!

Are they worth the buy;

100%, especially either of the powders.

Below I included a picture of me using the powders lightly.

Has anyone had a chance to try the powders?

What did you think of them? Or do you have any other powders you recommend?

Thanks so much for reading. If you liked this post, be sure to follow me to see more!

My Latest Overseas Haul! How Much Money Did I Save?

Hey Guys, welcome back to my page. If you have been following me for a while you would know I love using shipping services to save money on products, people like me in Australia pay a fortune for; as well as products they don’t sell in Australia.

For this Haul I used the site The Luxe Link, which I will link at the bottom of the page.

The Luxe Link is a service, and not a reseller of luxury goods. They are a shopping concierge based in New York City, that provides access to America’s online and traditional retailers. I used the service to access Nordstorm and their amazing deals and limited edition products.

In my haul I got;

  • Hourglass ambient lighting palette 3 $80US
  • Mac Prep and Prime Fixing Spray $25US
  • Mac Look in a Box Early to Red $36.50
  • Mac Viva Glam 1 and 3 $17.50US Each

Total:

$176.50US = $229.70 AUD

Worth in Australia:

  • Hourglass ambient lighting palette 3 (Currently Unavailable in Australia so US transferred to AUD) $104.15AUD
  • Mac Prep and Prime Fixing Spray $36AUD
  • Mac Look in a Box Early to Red $99AUD
  • Mac Viva Glam 1 and 3 $36AUD Each

Total: $311.15AUD

Meaning when you order with them you are saving $81.45AUD on the products you buy!

I don’t know about you but that makes Service fees so worth it for shipping services and makes me want to buy more from America, it also makes me want to move to America!

Has anyone used shipping services before? Did you get any amazing deals?

Also I have been given a code for if you guys want to make an order with them yourself, i don’t make any money off it.

https://www.theluxelink.com
https://www.theluxelink.com/request/
The code is “JADE” and you will get $50US off your sale over $200US. The code will be valid till December 31st.

If you make an order let me know what you get!

 

My Feel Unique Haul and Unboxing ( Review and maybe a giveaway hint ;) )

Hey guys welcome back to my page, I am trying to make my posts more regular for you guys but I’ve been a bit stressed lately and it’s made it hard to get motivated enough to write so I am sorry for my irregular posting!
This posts is about my recent order with Feel Unique which is a UK based retailer that stocks an amazing collection of brands including Sigma, benefit, laura geller, star skin, skyn Iceland, urban decay, bars and so many more of my favourites. 
For my order i picked all things I’ve wanted to try for ages but was hesitant on buying! So to start off I got the sigma detail brushes which includes 8 different brushes that are perfect for any detail obsessed makeup addict; These specifically designed brushes help solve small challenges in makeup application, such as creating a perfectly edged lip, coating lashes from base to tip and applying eyeliner smoothly and evenly. This set is $133 making the brushes about $16 each so I was really happy with price. The brushes themselves are amazing quality and are super easy to clean. 
Next I got the Laura Geller 20th anniversary highlight in the powder which was $21 and this is probably my favourite product I bought, the colour is seriously gorgeous and whenever I wear it I get constant compliments! Sadly the powder is currently sold out but they still have the stick available so I definitely recommend it for anyone who is looking for a bomb AF highlight.  
Next I got the Starskin Hollywood party pack
Each Starskins Hollywood Party Gift Set comes with:
– GLOWSTAR™ Foaming Peeling Perfection Puff 
– After Party™ Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Brightening Face Mask
– Red Carpet Ready™ Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Hydrating Face Mask
– Eye Catcher™ Smoothing Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Eye Mask
– DREAMKISS™ Plumping and Hydrating Bio-Cellulose Lip Mask
– complimentary The Gold Mask™ VIP Revitalizing Luxury Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Face Mask
– STARSKIN headband
The set costs $41 but has over $61 worth of products included. It’s a great way to try a bunch of products a little bit cheaper so you know what you love and want to get again! My top favourites from this set were the eye catcher second skin eye masks and the plumping lip masks. Both gave me a visible instant difference in my appearance. After the lip masks i could definitely see my lips were more plump, it look like I have gotten my lips done again and the swelling had already passed. 
Then I got some gel masks from Skyn Iceland I got the prep for a party set which is $10.40 and comes with;
– A pair of Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels to help firm, tone, brighten and reduce the appearance of puffiness and wrinkles under the eyes.
– A pair of Hydro Cool Firming Face Gels for Smile Lines that helps flatten expression lines while preventing future ones from forming.
– A Hydro Cool Firming Face Gel for Forehead patch that helps visibly fill in forehead creases with a concentrated dose of line-plumping, skin-smoothing, ingredients.
– A plumping gel patch designed to improve the look, definition and overall health lips.
My favourite for this set was the same as the last set the eyes and lip masks just were an absolute winner for me. They were quick and easy to use and gave me results I was really impressed with. 
Then I got the Hoola Bronzer by benefit which was $24.50 and I wasn’t 100% sure on this one. The texture of the bronzer was nice but it was too dark for my skin, I was so sad because I have heard amazing things about Hoola and I really wanted to love it. I do love most benefit products I have tried though. Does anyone have a favourite benefit product I should try? 
Then lucky last I got collistar patch reshaping treatment which is essentially a wrap that is meant to use active ingredients to burn fat and reshape the body. I really wanted to like these as I thought they were a pretty cool idea but I was actually really unhappy with them your meant to be able to wear them all day comfortably for 8 hours, I put one on and you could see it under my clothes even though it was meant to be invisible under clothes and then once I went to take it off it was extremely painful and actually ripped part of my skin off. For about 2 weeks I had raw skin on my stomach so it definitely wasn’t an enjoyable experience for me. 
Has anyone tried them before? Did you have the same issue, or could I have had a dodgy batch. 
So this is the end of my haul review; for the review of the company themselves I think Feel Unique is amazing. They have an amazing range of products that are well priced, they have great deals and specials available and their shipping is so fast. I will definitely be buying from them again! Has anyone shopped with Feel Unique? What did you get? And if you haven’t and your going to, what are you thinking of getting? 
Here is the link if you want to have a look at what they have.

Also I am planning on a giveaway for when I hit 50k on instagram. What should I include? 

My Glambot Vault Haul and experience! 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is about my latest Glambot haul and experience. If you don’t know what Glambot is, it is a website that allows you to sell or buy new and used makeup safely and hygeinically. They always have amazing deals and I have been addicted ever since I found out about them. I have done probably 8 orders with them so far and I always get almost brand new products. This time I got the Glitter Shimmer bundle from the vault and it was $24US for $120 worth of product. They have too faced palettes for $20 and bars or Mac lipsticks for under $10. They are definitely worth checking out. 

I pictured above my haul and I was really happy with it, I got all brands I love!

I got a shadow, a bronzer, glitter pills, a lip pencil, a eyeshadow brush, eye primer and a liner. I was really impressed with the coordination of the products the set looked organised well and generous. I don’t think I have ever made an order that I wasn’t happy with, they have great customer service as well. One of my previous orders I got a Mac lip palette but it had been listed wrong and the colours were different and they reimbursed me for the mistake and let me keep the palette. 

If you want to check them out or do a little shop here is the link; it isn’t a affiliate link and I don’t make any money from you shopping with them. 

Glambot
Has anyone shopped with Glambot before? If so what did you get? I love seeing everyone else’s hauls and hearing about people’s experiences. I personally love Glambot but I want to know what you think of it; what do you love and what don’t you love? 

Also what is your favourite makeup brand?
