Having colour-treated my hair with foils for nearly ten years now, my hair is unfortunately very dry and damaged - so this repairing shampoo, conditioner and treatment range has been a godsend for my damaged locks.
One really important thing for me when it comes to hair products is the smell - this range smells divine and makes lathering up so much more fun. Being blonde, it’s very tricky to nail silky, healthy-looking tresses, but this range is definitely helping! Normally when I comb my damp hair, it's quite hard to get through smoothly, but this range leaves it really silky and easy to manage. After it's dry, it feels really soft and smooth to touch, is noticeably less frizzy, and looks very shiny, restored and healthier than ever. The range is enriched with pro-keratin and ceramide which I knew would work wonders on helping to improve my dry and damaged colour-treated hair.
After using this range for about a month, I've noticed much less breakage which is a major win for my usually brittle locks! Another big bonus is the treatment is really quick to use. I've always used treatments that take around eight to 10 minutes to work, but this works in just one! Big plus for me and any busy woman!

I'm a big fan of Ultraceuticals products and this one definitely isn't a disappointment! Easy to dispense, the product glides on effortlessly and sinks straight into my skin, and I only need a small amount to cover my whole face. The product doesn't leave a sticky finish (which I often find with serums) and after a few minutes my skin is prepped to apply moisturiser. My skin feels hydrated throughout the day and after a few weeks I’ve noticed it definitely looks more radiant. The fine lines around my eyes have been plumped out and the deeper forehead lines I have don't appear as noticeable. I have already recommended this to my sister who has similar skin to mine and is always keen to hear about what I think works - and this definitely does!

I have fine, curly, colour-damaged hair that I heat style every time I wash it. I mentioned to my hairdresser that I hated the look of my hair when straightened with an iron, the process tends to make my curly roots poke up in all crazy ways. It also takes out any body and bounce. She recommended I try Cloud Nine The Original Iron. The adjustable heat setting allows me to use a cooler setting that does not further damage my hair. It gives just enough heat to remove the kinks without making my hair flat and lifeless. The cooler setting also makes it more comfortable to apply the tool close to the scalp to target my unruly hair at the roots.

I am an absolute fan of Aveeno body moisturisers and use them regularly but had not tried this variant before. The lotion was really light and a small amount went quite a long way. Like all the Aveeno body moisturisers this one kept my skin feeling soft and super moisturised all day long. I love that this is a fragrance-free moisturiser so it does not compete with my perfume. I think this is a really effective product at a really great price and I will most definitely repurchase this product. It’s ideal for anyone wanting soft, moisturised skin.
