Schwarzkopf Gliss Million Gloss Oil Replacement


Innovation is the absolute DNA of the Schwarzkopf brand, and every two to three years, product formulations are updated so that only the very best is offered to the consumer. Such is the new Schwarzkopf Gliss Million Gloss Oil Replacement leave-in hair product. 

The Schwarzkopf Gliss Million Gloss Oil Replacement is infused with liquid keratin and other micro-oils and it promises brilliant shine and gorgeous softness while fighting any frizz. Well, I have naturally curly hair which frizzes easily and I’m always looking for products that will eliminate that while making my hair more manageable, soft and shiny. 


I also struggle with dryness and I find that after styling I always have to add a slick of hair oil to avoid dullness. So, with this product, I was a little apprehensive about leaving it in my hair. Only because the only other leave-in conditioner I’ve ever used was something called Bone Straight, years ago and to be honest it didn’t really bring out the best in my mane. 

Well, the Schwarzkopf Gliss Million Gloss Oil Replacement did! My hair was soft and shiny and very bouncy, full of volume also. I expected stiffness I guess, it’s like I can’t believe that a leave-in hair treatment can give such fantastic results. The liquid keratin also did its job because even before any heat I could feel how it changed my hair texture into this luxurious silkiness. 

I want to go as far as saying that this is the best hair care product I’ve used in a very long time. The best part is that you can use it daily and because it is leave-in it makes the hair wash routine so much easier – you don’t have to wash your hair again to get rid of conditioner.

For deep regenerating care they advise you to apply it on dry hair and then leave it on for the night. Now that’s what I call a beauty sleep! I like the teal green packaging and the fact that it is easy to open and use. I will definitely purchase this product again. Currently available over at Clicks for R94.99

Schwarzkopf Gliss Intense Therapy Mask



120 years ago, chemist Hans Schwarzkopf laid the foundations for a truly international brand that stands for quality, reliability, expertise and innovation. Today, Schwarzkopf is a global pioneer in hair cosmetics and it’s clear to see why. They have such a fantastic selection of high-quality products for just about any hair type. It’s all about modern creativity, not necessarily following trends but expressing your own individuality with confidence. 

I’ve recently embraced that modern creativity with the Schwarzkopf Live Ultra Brights/Pastel in Purple Punk, see full review here. Today’s review, however, is all about the new Schwarzkopf Gliss Intense Therapy Mask with Keratin Serum and Omega Plex. It’s specially formulated for over-processed hair, tresses that have been exposed to a lot of heat styling and colouring.


The Schwarzkopf Gliss Intense Therapy Mask promises to reconstruct bonds within the hair fibres and to give it long-lasting protection. To keep my pixie hairstyle looking fresh, (I recently added a faded undercut at the back) I have to go for regular cuts, therefore you won’t find serious damage or split ends on my head. However, the longer strands on top of my crown have been exposed to a lot of hair colouring and daily flat ironing which has left it feeling dryer than usual. 

And the Schwarzkopf Gliss Intense Therapy Mask has been a lifesaver. Whenever I use this product my hair appears stronger and shinier, I would love for it to have more bounce as well but, to be fair it wasn’t created for that purpose. The consistency is very rich and thick and should be applied once a week and not more in my opinion. 

There’s a definite change in the appearance of my hair, in the past, there was a lot of breakage as my hair tends to get brittle with a lot of heat styling. It feels stronger and even thicker.

I love the deep almost metallic purple pot which gives it a very luxurious look. Because the product is so thick and my hair is this short it appears that I will continue to use it for a good amount of time. Like, yay for short hair! Available at Clicks for R89.99

Look out for my next post where I’ll be reviewing the Schwarzkopf Gliss Million Gloss Oil Replacement hair product.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 053 So Lit


I received a tangerine shade of lipstick from the Revlon Super Lustrous range in 053 called So Lit and was reluctant at first to use it. But I decided to be brave and try it out as it is such an on-trend colour and I’m kind of sick of being behind trends in general. By the time I fell in love with the backpack trend they were all very difficult to find. 

When I first saw leopard print shoes I thought they were too bold and now I’m besotted with them, even with the rainbow (specifically the pink) hair colouring trend, you see where I’m going with this? 


So, here’s my thoughts on the product. I love the matte look on my lips and the colour is growing on me, in fact, it looks really amazing. It’s pigmented and applies well so you only need one coat for a vivid, bold hue. I also like that it’s buildable which makes reapplication very easy, I’ve seen some lipsticks that smear in an unflattering, streaky way when you want to do touch-ups.


And it stays on for a generous amount of time, and that’s one thing I like about the Revlon brand, their products are always long wearing. The black and gold packaging also just does it for me, so classy right?


See my review on the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Show Stopper here. Get them both at Woolworths for R119.95 a pop.

Revlon Photoready Insta-filter Foundation in 320 True Beige


The Revlon Photoready Insta-filter Foundation in 320 True Beige appears very natural looking on my skin and the shade blends in perfectly with my skin tone. On first application my face looks blemish free and almost flawless, however by the end of the day I do find that my pores appear shiny and not as polished. Then again I do live in one of the hottest parts of South Africa. 

I always have to be careful not to use too much product as the coverage is really great and a little goes a long way. It comes with a nifty looking build-in sponge which I sadly don't use as I like to apply my foundation with my fingers. There’s a gap right in the middle where a tiny stream of foundation flows into in you twist the bottom part of the bottle.



I normally squeeze the sponge to quickly zap up the product with my fingers. Like previously mentioned I like using my fingers, I’m not into foundation brushes or sponges at all as I feel it’s not very hygienic and also because, in my opinion, I feel that it absorbs and waste too much product. Just a personal choice.


Here I'm wearing Revlon's Photoready Insta-filter Foundation in 320 True Beige, I'm also wearing their Super Lustrous Lipstick in 053 So Lit. See the next post for a full review on this great lip colour. 

Furthermore, I find the bottle to be rather sophisticated and innovative. I’ve been using BB creams for far too long and I like the more covered look this foundation gives. It allows my skin to breath, it glides and blends easily into my skin and like most Revlon foundations this one is also another winner. Available at Woolworths for R259.00

Revlon Photoready Insta-Sculpt Contouring Palette 001


The Revlon Photoready Insta-Sculpt Contouring Palette 001 allows for a very natural contouring look as the shades are not that dark. Which I like, I think it is perfect for a daytime look that’s normally less dramatic. In the pictures below I’ve applied the bottom right shade under my cheekbones and the bottom left shade on the sides of my nose. 


The peachy hue of the top left shade goes onto my cheeks, giving it a youthful look and the highlighter which is the top right shade goes onto my chin, the bridge of my nose and across my cheekbone. 


I can definitely see the difference contouring does to my face and it’s great to have a cute contouring kit like this one as it has all the shades to create a beautifully defined look. I really enhance my facial features in a lovely, natural way. I always use a dash of powder and makeup setting spray to set my look and this trick really helps the contouring to stay put.


The black packaging of this product is really sleek and I love the large mirror inside. Currently available at Takalot for R210.00
