Here’s the review for the new releases from some french brands I recently tried 🙂
ACTIVILONG Keratin Straightening Kit :
This kit is a great way to get a keratin treatment at home by yourself rather than spending a hundreds of dollars in getting it at the salon. Actually I tried this kit only on a single strand since my hair is not exposed to chemicals before. I didn’t even had any expectations on this, but it really worked. Only thing that bothered me is the strong smell as any other chemical products would smell.
Now I am sure to give this one a shot. I know I can’t do this by myself, I definitely need someone’s help, hopefully my hair dresser will say yes to help me on doing this. Once I have done this treatment, I will update a picture here.
KADALYS Gentle Clarifying Mask :
Kadalys is a natural skincare brand uses banana tree anti oxidants as their main ingredient. This gentle and soothing mask has Yellow Banana, Yellow Clay and Kaolin in it to lift away impurities, clear dead skin cells and absorb excess oils leaving skin feeling clear, balanced.
It looks light yellow in colour and has a creamy texture with soothing and hydrating ingredients which gently absorbs impurities and removes toxins. It has a slight tingling sensation on the skin. After washing off, My skin felt so clean and soft, It haven’t made my skin dry which is the good part of this face mask.
It can be used twice a week, apply to damp cleansed skin. Leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse off. It contains no parabens, Mineral Oil, Artificial Colour or fragrance, Silicones.
ARCANCIL Very Mat Lipstick :
In the early 2016, everyone has been raving about the Arcancil Mat Hysteria lipsticks but I couldn’t get to try that. Now the french brand Arcancil done it again with their very mat lipsticks.
The Very Mat Lipsticks are available in 7 shades and I have in the shade 382 Prune Mat, a gorgeous gorgeous plum shade. Also it is the darkest colour in the collection. Plum shades never fail to have my heart ❤ Still you can wear it in the summer because it looked different on the lips with a pink undertone, so the shade looked so bright on the lips. It has a soft matt finish and looks velvety on the lips. The shade is very pigmented, light on the lips and lasts for 4 to 5 hours. It is almost an dupe to the TOM FORD Bruised Plum Lipstick in affordable price (52 AED).
Les Jardin de Versailles :
Look at this cute tiny bottle, a modern, glamorous fragrance from the french perfume brand called Chateau De Versailles. The classic and ambitions of this fragrance reflects a new conception of feminity and so in line with your style at the same time.
- Top Notes -sweet but balmy, slightly sharp floral with fresh mandarin.
