Eyelash growth

So everyone’s saw the numerous eyelash serums you can find in stores and online but did any of you notice that most do contain castor oil ? This oil alone can help you regrow your eyelashes and make the ones you have thicker and stronger due to its nutrients, all you need to do is apply in the evening after removing make-up. You need need a lot just make sure you get your lash line coated too. Some people swear they find results happening in the first week or so. I have not tried castor on my lashes but pretty soon will be, blogging the results as of now you reading this I might already have done so, you can type “eyelashes” into my search bar to find it or to find other info on lash care πŸ˜€

A friend a few years ago suggested castor oil to me for my lash care routine she absolutely swore about it, her lashes were so thick and strong. They were amazing lashes ! So it must be true πŸ’–

Hair quality and growth

Boosts hair growth

Thickens hair

Controls dandruff

Repairs split ends

Controls hair loss

Castor oil contains natural compounds that promote hair growth. A large percentage of castor oil contains Ricinoleic acid, one of the essential amino acids required by the human body. It’s an Omega-9 fatty acid that can penetrate into the pores of the skin and the hair follicles. It provides nourishment, enabling the hair follicles to restore growth to a normal level.

Castor oil will also return the scalp to the optimum pH level, cure acne and dandruff. It will keep the organism population under control, which is what causes acne outbreaks and fungal growths such as dandruff. Overall, it’s an all-purpose hair and scalp restorative.

To make your own castor oil hair potion mix a few drops of castor with a few drops of Β Coconut Oil, you can add an essential oil in like lavender or tea tree this us just to mask the smell of the castor, massage it well into your scalp and through your long hair if need be. Keep on for about 30 min to an hour then wash off. Using castor on hair it takes a few weeks for growth to show but the condition will change almost right away.

When I personally used castor on my hair ( and it was just small amount ) my hair was so soft and shiny and felt stronger. If you want more beauty tips and tricks on hair growth and to see result pictures of my experiments just type in “hair” into the search bar at the top right of the sidebar πŸ˜‰

Acne

Acne can be treated using castor oil on your face or body before bed each night, put it on a thin layer and massage in. Leave on for an hour or so then wash off. Repeat each night if need be (do not use any other facial creams or remedies during this time)Β There’s a lot of rave reviews online of people using castor oil for acne just search ” castor oil for acne” into Google πŸ˜‰

Castor oil aids in dissolving and removing the bacteria, dirt, excess oil and dead skin cells that are clogging the pores. Plus, thanks to its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, castor oil can help to prevent breakouts. Along with that, the essential fatty acids and undercylenic acid found in castor oil can disinfect skin and destroy bacteria that causeΒ acne. Last but not least, this oil is also enriched with vitamin E, antioxidants, and other vitamins & minerals, which promote skin health. From http://www.beautytalk.com

One of the most effective methods of clearing acne with castor oil is to steam your face first to open those pores to allow the oil to deeply cleanse your face, apply after steaming straight away and leave for 1 or 2 hours, apparently it takes 6 weeks to completely clear everythingπŸ˜€

If you want a super strong acne killer recipe then just add in Organic Coconut Oil with castor which will make your skin so soft, reduce inflammation and kill bacteria !

Aveda – shampure composition oil review

Avedas composition oil is described as a calming aromatic oil for body, bath and scalp! Aveda gave me a 30ml sample and at first I thought it was a hair oil because the bottle said “shampure” on the front. It turns out to be a pretty cool multifunctional oil that’s smells lovely too. For me this oil smells like candy for some reason 😁

You can use this oil in the bath, just add a few drops in for relaxation. You can use it for a massage oil, add to your pillow to help you sleep 😏

There is also a fabulous oil in this product called meadow foam oil and if your interested in haircare you should look into this oil as it helps to condition your hair and scalp. So you can apply this product to your hair aswell. I would just note some people can be allergic to plant extracts so be careful !

Overall avedas shampure composition oil is a top quality product that can do exactly as it describes πŸ˜‰ I would highly recommend this product to anyone out there πŸ’–

Wabiskincare – coffee and sweet orange body scrub review

Wabi,Β ethical coffee based skincare brand. Good for you and the environment, Wabi work with local speciality coffee roasters then combines this with fair trade oils and butters to create fantastic products.

The body scrubs come in two themes sweet orange and coffee and mocha and peppermint. I was gifted the sweet orange coffee scrub to review for my readers!

I am a massive supporter of environmentally friendly products and natural based beauty care, Wabi don’t contain microbeads, palm oil, chemicals etc. What they do include are organic ingredients, biodegradable exfoliaters and luxurious oils ! it’s a winner πŸ˜‰

First off the fragrance from the scrub is lovely, the texture is nice and you can feel your dead skin being exfoliated away while you rub yourself down with the mixture. It also felt very friendly on my skin, no redness 😊

Your skin is exfoliated and soft after use and the oils in the scrub work so perfectly together to hydrate your skin, making it look shiny and soft. A small amount of the scrub goes a long way and the jar would last months it’s a perfect body scrub and I would highly recommend this product to you.

Pure clay detox mask by loreal paris

Was after this clay mask for weeks after I saw it advertised. I guess the idea of clay was attractive as I’d heard of it being good for skin and other things etc.

Detox mask loreal paris makeup skincare

Picked it up in superdrug for under a tenner, yay πŸ˜βœ”πŸ’― So straightaway I really wanted to know if it smelled weird lol and guess what it didn’t! I was also under the impression that it would be a peel off mask as all the masks used in the past have been. You can easily remove it once done with a warm face cloth although it does dry in hard and you can feel it tighten up. This mask also contains charcoal which I have heard can Brighten your skin. ( please note i will be exploring natural skin brightening on my blog in the future so please subscribe if this is something your interested in ) Overall I found that this product gave me the results that it claims to, my skin did feel fresh and look cleansed. Also the mask didn’t irritate in any way. Will probably use this mask about once a month and I would recommend it to my readers.
