Recent purchases #28 featuring Kerastase, This Works, Oskia & more!

Long time, no blog! Every 4th week, I have to take an extra course of antibiotics and they generally make me feel more ill and not up to doing very much. I also have to be careful not to overdo things because I'm going on holiday in 3 weeks and I can't afford to relapse before then. I'm back to my normal meds this week so I'm back getting my blog on and today I'm sharing my recent purchases. 

I've been feeling a bit "meh" about my hair recently - it needs a good cut but I haven't been up to going to a hair salon recently because my fatigue is crippling at the moment. I also want to get some Balayage done just to change things up for summer so I'm hoping I'll be able to do that before I go on holiday. In the meantime, I've bought a few products to help make it look a bit better (it feels soft thanks to regular use of hair masks but just a bit lifeless) & get some life back into it.

Kérastase is a brand that I love - almost every product I have tried from the brand has really impressed me so I bought two products: Elixir Ultime and Serum Therapiste (from the Resistance range). I have gone through several bottles of Elixir Ultime and I love it. It is an oil and can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment or pre or post styling. I love the scent and a tiny amount goes a long way so a bottle lasts me over a year. I haven't tried Serum Therapiste before but I love the Resistance range. This is a dual serum and aims to seal and heal the hair and provides heat protection so I'm looking forward to giving it a go!

Show Beauty Premiere Working Texture Spray: I wanted to get something to add some texture to my hair but without stickiness or crispiness and after reading lots of reviews, I decided on this. I tried the Charles Worthington texture spray before but didn't like it and I know that lots of people rave about the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray but this one is less expensive so I thought I'd give it a go. I'll let you know what I think of it soon.

The other two products are repurchases: This Works Sleep Plus Pillow Spray and Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. Both are products I really love and always buy when there is a 20% discount code available for lookfantastic (which seems to be weekly!). The pillow spray is an absolute life saver for me and really helps me to get a full night's sleep. My sleep was always broken until I started to use this and I can't be without it. Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a really beautiful cleanser and I love to use it in the morning but it is equally good as an evening cleanser because the gel/balm breaks down into an oil and it cleanses without stripping the skin and leaves it feeling very soft and comfortable. I have quite a few cleansers already but always like to have it in my bathroom!
