Review: John Frieda Miraculous Recovery Serum

John Frieda Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Creme Serum - £6.29 normally but £3.14 at Superdrug (here)

As you all know, I have been a big fan of the John Frieda Full Repair Oil Elixir (review here) for a good few months now. So when I was given the chance to try the John Frieda Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Crème Serum*, I was not sure if my hair would handle changing from an oil to a cream product.

I have been using it for the past couple of weeks and so far, I like it. Not as much as the oil, but I have noticed it has managed to get my frizz under control on the mid section of my hair (have to thank the Hairy Jayne Hair Perfume for the frizz control on the ends too!). Lately, my hair has been getting a lot of electricity (not sure why…any guesses?) and this clearly has helped a lot. As I said, I am still very much in love with the oil in terms of nourishing, but really liking the John Frieda Miraculous Recovery Crème Serum for my frizzy hair.

The scent is quite similar to the TIGI Rockaholic range (a bit sweet but fresh) and its texture reminds me to the Elemis FreshSkin Moisturiser (strange but true!). Is a very thin and light weight product that hasn’t weighed down my hair so a plus if you have thin hair.

Have you tried any of the John Frieda Frizz Ease range products?

Review: BareMinerals Well Rested Eye Brightener

bareMinerals Well Rested Eye Brightener Concealer - £15.20 at Escentual or £19 at Bare Minerals UK

Another day, another powder. Today it was the turn of the Bare Minerals Well Rested Eye Brightener Concealer, a colour powder designed to conceal and brighten the under eye area. 

I bought this product about a month ago, with the intention of setting my corrector and concealer in place with it. I did this for a few days and noticed that my under eye area felt quite heavy and just... not right. I stopped using it for a few days and then one day I decided to give it another go, but skipping the concealer part, just using the corrector and... oh yes, that was much better.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have been recently using the VICHY Dermablend Setting Powder (here) under my eyes and it has been working like a dream. However, on days when I don't feel like using a lot of make up like Sundays, chill out days or even cinema days, I have been using the Bare Minerals Well Rested simply on top of my corrector as it gives a bit of coverage, brightens and sets the whole thing up perfectly.

Have you used this product or brand before?
