Hair Care: Trying Garnier Naturals Shampoo

Hello beauties!!!

Here are some facts…I do not spend time for my hair. I change my shampoo often, I rarely do any hair treatments, I don’t use so many styling products. I am in love with short hair and I haven’t changed my hair color since 2009. I am lucky ’cause my hair do not need so much care, as they look healthy (or I think they do) and I love my natural hair color(honey/blond). BUT I like to do diy masks or use specific products for blondes just because I want to make  my natural color look brighter.

It’s been about a month that I am using a new shampoo which I liked a lot. I am talking about the Garnier Naturals with chamomile and honey shampoo. As you can understand from the name, it contains natural extracts of chamomile and honey and it is meant for blonde hair, natural or dyed. We all know that chamomile is supposed to lighten your hair, but normally shampoos with that ingredient don’t work for me.

This one does a great job! It moisturizes and nourish my hair, leaves them soft and healthy and makes them look shiny.

After a month of using it, I notice that it has brighten the color of my hair and know it looks like I have natural highlights, which I like! It makes my hair look golden, the effect that I normally get during summer, thanks to sunlight.

Another thing that I liked is that it is delicate and does not make my hair greasy. I usually wash my hair every second day, but I’ve noticed that even after three days my hair didn’t get oily(that’s unusual for me!)

The fragrance is sweet, probably because of honey, and also has a discrete scent of flower bouquets. It isn’t strong at all and I find it very refreshing and relaxing.

Have you ever tried any shampoo of the Garnier Naturals line? If yes, which one? Do you like them? What is your favorite shampoo?

Garnier Anti Dark Circles Roll On

Let’s be honest! Most of us when we wake up in the morning we hate the dark circles under our eyes. Am I wrong? We do everything: eye pads, masks, do-it-yourself beauty tricks(yeap!I am thinking the trick with potatoes), but these awful dark circles keep coming nearly everyday.

I have read a lot of reviews about Garnier Anti Dark Circles Roll On and I decided to give it a try.
Here’s what Garnier claims:
Roll-on with dual anti dark circles action: 
Instant Coverage: Concentrated in mineral pigments, it covers dark circles in a flash. Soft, natural-looking finish, long lasting wear. 
Anti-dark circles hydrating care: enriched with caffeine and pure lemon essence, it combines a hydrating formula and the draining effect of a massage to effectively reduce dark circles and reveal a radiant and fresh look.

First of all, I like the roll-on packaging; it dispenses just the right amount of product as you move the roller ball against your skin and the massage feeling that gives you is pretty cool especially in the morning.The texture is kind of thin, light, almost watery. You have to blend the product as quick as possible because it gets absorbed very quickly. When it dries out, it gives a matte but fresh effect to the eyes. You can refresh it during the day, as it doesn’t get cakey nor it creases.

As it claims, it contains caffeine and it should have helped in reducing the puffiness and the dark circles under the eyes. In fact, I haven’t noticed any improvement in my dark circles. So, I won’t suggest you to use it as an under eye care product.

I think it’s a great light concealer and gives a natural result, ideal for everyday use. Don’t expect a full coverage product and it might not work for you if you have very dark circles. For me, it is more than ok, ’cause I don’t like heavy make up for my everyday looks and I don’t mind if dark circles or imperfections can be seen on my face.
Here are some swatches:

Good morning dark circles! 
After applied the product. Not big difference, right?
Swatched on my hand
For the moment it has replaced my everyday concealer. If I would buy it again? Hmmm..I don’t know yet! Maybe yes! I am just skeptical because after I finish the Garnier Roll-On I would like to try a mineral concealer.

Review: Garnier Invisi-Mineral Calm Deodorant

I don’t like to change my deodorant. I was stuck with one for more that four years and I regreted to try anything else.

 A few months ago I was sent a huge package by Garnier. It was full of products and there was a deodorant in there…Hmmm…I thought that I already had a negative review about a product! I was absolutely sure that I was going to hate it and that it wouldn’t work for me. But I decided to give it a try. I am talking about the Garnier Deodorant InvisiMineral- Calm.

 Garnier claims about it:
”Invisi-Mineral Calm is double-action with 48 hours protection that leaves skin feeling soothed after shaving and no white marks on your clothes”.

My first impression was about its package. A little curved bottle which is easy to hold and lightweight as well. Simple and girly at the same time. 50mL of product and expiration date 12 months after opening. Not bad at all, but these are just details that don’t tell me nothing about the product.

I have the roll-on (there is a spray version as well). I believe that roll-on deodorants are better than sprays or sticks, at least for me. I am using it for more than a month and I can confirm that the Invisi-Mineral Calm doesn’t leave white marks on my clothes! That’s a big yeah for me! I hate it when I have white marks on my dark clothing!

What really impress me was that this little product does everything that promises and everything that I want! It prevents sweat and lasts for long. I can’t really tell you if it lasts dor 48hours, as Garnier claims, ’cause I take a shower everyday and even twice a day. But I can tell you this deodorant keeps me fresh till my next shower! It has a rosy scent which is really discrete and refreshing. During the day you won’t notice that smell, but it’s there to offer you a fresh feeling.

I have noticed that it absorbs fast and easily. I nearly don’t have to wait to get dressed. I hate it when my deodorant needs 5′ to get absorbed.

Last, but not least, the Invisi- Mineral Calm is enriched with allantoin that help skin to feel soothed even after shaving. I hadn’t any irritation when using this deodorant after shaving. That’s a plus, don’t you think?

As you can easily understand, the Garnier Deodorant Invisi-Mineral Calm really convinced me! Maybe more than my last deodorant… Even if I got this from Garnier, I would definetely buy it once it is finished! And, who knows, I might have found my new adorable deodorant.

Have you ever tried the Invisi-Mineral Deodorant? If yes, which one? Do you prefer roll-on or spray deodorants?

Let me know girls!!!
