Inecto hair treatment

Before using natural products, I was aware of the effect of silicones in the hair, so back then I already used a silicon free shampoo, but not a silicone free hair treatment.

Hair products with silicones leave the hair shiny and without freeze by creating a coat in the hair. But that coat doesn’t let hair treatments to nourish the hair. I stopped using silicone shampoos since I noticed that after washing my hair it was really heavy, it didn’t feel clean. I kept using a regular hair treatment since I didn’t use it on the roots.

Since I’ve decided to use natural products, I wanted switch my regular hair treatment to a natural one without silicones.

I found Inecto’s hair treatment in my local store , and after collecting information from the brand, since I had never heard of it, I decided to try it.

Inecto is a British cosmetic brand, with up to 90% of their product’s ingredients from natural origin. Inecto’s product’s main ingredients are argan oil and coconut oil. They also work with the farms that provide them the oils to warrant that their products are made with sustainable ingredients.

Some people make their own hair treatment with these ingredients, but I find very convenient to have them together in a product, without having to make them myself, if I’m in a rush.

The Inecto’s hair treatment really smells like nature, is a true natural scent that I enjoy, I can compare it with other products that have coconut scent but aren’t natural, and definitely I can tell the difference between the two scents. I’ve noticed that the smell doesn’t last in the hair, which I find reasonable as this is a natural product.

As for how it leaves the hair, Inecto’s hair treatment is a 90% natural product, therefore it won’t give a shiny hair or frizz free hair, since it doesn’t have silicones on it. I share the opinion of some reviews that I’ve read about this product, that considered this product more as a conditioner than as a hair treatment.

This product will clean your hair and make detangling easily, it also will nourish your hair gradually, but if you have a very damaged hair I think this product is not enough to repair it.

I’ve liked this product specially because it doesn’t make my hair heavy, I definitely can tell the difference in my hair by using this product from when I used the hair treatments with silicones.

Another thing I like about these product is the packaging; I like that the container is a tube, therefore water or dirt can’t get on it, which usually happens with the regular hair treatment’s packagings.

Natural mascara

I wanted to try a natural mascara for a while, since I don’t like wearing regular mascaras as I feel that they don’t get removed easily and during the day I feel uncomfortable wearing them.

I haven’t realized that Physicians Formula was available in Spain, so when I noticed that my local store was selling their products I decided to get a natural mascara from them.

The mascara that I chose is 100% made out of natural ingredients, and it’s free of chemicals, synthetic preservatives, parabens, fibers and dyes, and 70% of its ingredients are from organic farming. The brush is made out of recycled plastic.

I really like the fact that this mascara is natural, and doesn’t have chemicals and dyes, therefore is suitable for sensitive eyes.

I’ve been using this mascara every day, and even though it doesn’t give the lashes the volume a regular mascara do, this mascara defines the lashes and gives them a natural volume, which I find appropriate for an everyday makeup look.

I also don’t feel uncomfortable during the day wearing these mascara, I can’t notice that I’m wearing it.

I have noticed that it is very easy to remove. The mascaras I’ve used were waterproof, so I could expend a lot of time removing them, and they won’t remove completely. With this mascara that hasn’t happened, as it removes very easily.

As for the packaging and the brush, I have like the plastic brush, I think it helps with defining the lashes and it doesn’t leave clumps. For giving volume to your lashes and defining them you have to expend time with the brush, and I also think it is important to use an eyelash curler, but I think that applies for every mascara.

I’m very pleased with these mascara and I’m definitely going to try the others from Physicians Formula.

Skin care I

My skin care routine has changed recently, after having my skin really dry I switched the products I was using, and it definitely has improved since then.

After I have a shower I will apply an oil, before drying. Choosing a good oil is really important, I used to apply an oil that wasn’t nourishing and ended with really dry skin. The oil I’m using at the moment is an almond oil,although is not 100% almond oil it is really nourishing and is suitable for sensitive skins. The oil in the picture has argan on it, it is from the same brand as the almond oil, “Instituto Español”, their products are made in Spain and are cruelty free.

The rosehip oil is also a favourite of mine. Just make sure you choose the pressed rosehip seed oil that is extracted from the seeds of a wild rose bush (Rosa moschata or Rosa rubiginosa) in the southern Andes. These oil improves the appearance of the skin.

For body cream I use Nivea,but only in the areas areas that are prone to get dry. And for nourishing my hands I use a regular hand cream.
