Christmas Gift Guide 4 of 8: Haircare

This year I have put together a Christmas gift guide, they could be presents for a family member, a friend or even a treat for yourself!

I have put them into categories the best I can and I have put very short reviews on each product. If you want to know more about any of the products tweet me @sarahtrademark and we can have a chat 🙂


Haircare

Paul Mitchell Make It Vibrant

Paul Mitchell Make It Vibrant

£40

This set includes:

Ultimate Color Repair Shampoo

Ultimate Color Repair Conditioner

Ultimate Color Repair Triple Rescue

 This set is great for anyone, like me, that has dyed hair and is fed up of it fading so quick. Since using this range I have noticed my hair hasn’t faded so quick and it looks more healthy and shiny. It is important to use a mask or something to help your hair if you have bleached it or dyed it a lot so this kit is great as it has everything you need.

Sukin Protein Hair Treatment

Sukin Protein Hair Treatment

£9.99

Sukin are a great affordable brand that also produce body and face products. They use natural products and you can really see a difference when using them. This hair treatment has really improved my hair. I have been using it once a week for the last few weeks and my hair is in a better condition and it has really helped with my split ends. This would be great for anyone that wants to give their hair a treat. 

Osmo haircare

Osmo

Deep moisture

£4.49

This is a leave in product, almost like a leave in conditioner. It really helps to use something like this if you have damaged hair. My ends are very dry, but the condition of my hair is getting better and is noticeably different when I use this.

Thermal defence

£4.99

This is a great heat protector . I don’t use heat to style my hair as much as I used to and I have noticed a difference in my hair, but when I do want to I ALWAYS make sure I use something to protect it.

crazy color shampoo

Crazy Color 

Red shampoo

£4.50

This is specifically designed for red hair, you can get it in different colours too. I always struggle to keep bright hair fresh, so something like this is great. It helps maintain the bright red between dyes so it doesn’t fade so quick. 

Hairapeutix

Hairapeutix

£5.99

This is a pre shampoo treatment that leaves your hair feeling so soft and manageable.  It revitalises damaged hair and is great to use on hair extensions too.

You get two sachets in the set which is really good value if you think about how much a hair treatment costs in the salon!

Dermalogica haircare

Dermalogica daily cleansing shampoo

£19.80

This shampoo helps to remove daily build up and leaves your hair so clean and soft. It is sulphate free so won’t damage your hair and you don’t need to use much to create a good lather.

Dermalogica daily conditioning rinse

£20.70

The conditioner helps to restore a bit of life into dry damaged hair and leaves it silky smooth.Using this along with the shampoo above is a great combo to restore your hair and to leave it really clean and manageable.

Christmas Gift Guide 2 of 8: Skincare

This year I have put together a Christmas gift guide, they could be presents for a family member, a friend or even a treat for yourself!

I have put them into categories the best I can and I have put very short reviews on each product. If you want to know more about any of the products tweet me @sarahtrademark and we can have a chat 🙂

Skincare

Dermalogica Power Rescue Masque Trio

Dermalogica Power Rescue Masque Trio

£43.25

This set contains:
Charcoal Rescue Masque
MultiVitamin Power Recovery Masque
Skin Hydrating Masque

It is a great set to try different face products. It is not always simple to use one masque all over as different areas of your face will have different needs. My nose is always congested so this needs a good deep cleanse but my cheeks are dry so need some hydration. Dermalogica create some really great high end beauty products and I have never been disappointed.

SkinChemists Advanced Caviar Miceller Water

SkinChemists Advanced Caviar Miceller Water
£99

SkinChemists is very high quality and aimed at the higher end of the market. A LOT of famous people use their products and honestly, I can see why. If I had the money I would buy their whole range!

The miceller water is so soothing on your skin, it removes dirt and make up with no effort at all and leaves your face so smooth and looking refreshed.

SkinChemists Advanced Caviar Facial Serum

SkinChemists Advanced Caviar Facial Serum
£85

I am in love with facial serums right now, I never used them until a few months back but it is amazing what a difference in my skincare routine they have made. This product hydrates your skin so well and using it at night I just look so refreshed by morning. I have noticed it has also helped with blemish scarring and any blemishes I have it really helps speed up the healing process.

SkinChemists Advanced Caviar Night Moisturiser

SkinChemists Advanced Caviar Night Moisturiser
£84

Using this along with the miceller water and facial serum I have really noticed an improvement in my skin. I think even if you only tried one of the range you would see a difference though! This has left me with my smoother skin, it looks more radiant by morning and I am a lot more comfortable going to work make up free knowing my skin is looking so good!

Sukin Hydrating Facial Masque

Sukin Hydrating Facial Masque
£10.15

This masque is amazing a re-hydrating dry skin, I always end up with dry cheeks and also around my nose, even though it is very congested and oily. I always worried if I over moisturised it would produce more oil but in fact, hydrating my skin more has actually helped my skin become less oily. This is a great masque to use once a week when you fancy that extra pamper session!

phyto replenish oil

A new product that I have been using for a few weeks now is the Dermalogica phyto replenish oil. It can be used alone or mixed in with your moisturiser. It helps protect your skin by reinforcing the skins protective barrier.

Dermalogica phyto replenish oil

Using this creates a dewy finish to your skin and it is absorbed really quickly. It has a very non greasy formula and leaves a nice glow to your face.

I find by using this before I apply my make up it stops my foundation looking so patchy and flaky in the dryer areas of my face.

There is a great video which shows you the best way to massage this into your face, as often I am not sure the best way to apply a product.

Trying a new moisturiser

Dermalogica is one of my favourite skincare brands and they never fail to disappoint when it comes to new releases.

This clear start hydrating lotion helps to not just moisturise your skin but helps any outbreaks. I suffer with bad skin so I am always trying new products to keep those pesky spots at bay. 

I also suffer really bad dry patches on my face (even though it is oily) so I am always trying new things to help with this. I have been using clear start once a day for the last few weeks and it has really helped with my dry patches and I think it has helped my outbreaks too!
