I LoveThe LOC Method and My New Face Cream

Image
Apparently I've lost my knack for rambling and nattering so hopefully this post will be short and sweet......
.......or not :)
This is the Cloud Nine Day cream by a brand called Mother Earth.

I bought this off beauty naturals for £12.95 which, when I think about it, is very pricey for such a small jar. However it is 100% natural and one of the most natural products I've ever used. There is also a matching night cream however the ingredients are practically the same so I didn't see the point in bothering. The same goes for the raindrops and roses cream from this brand which I am yet to try. This face cream contains orange blossom extract however the orange scent isn't very strong. My sister and mother both think it smells like butter and it does actually look and feel like butter. My mom even had a go at tasting it which I DO NOT recommend!! Here are the ingredients:
shea butter, almond oil (prunus dulcis), carrot oil (daucus carota), elderflowers (sambucus nigra), yarr…

Ouchless shower comb and Boots coconut oil

Image
Now, I already 3 shower combs from superdrug and they all do a good job of detangling my hair without much pain. However what frustrates me about them is that after several uses the little painted balls at the of each tooth keep falling off. This results in the raggedy seams of comb being exposed which scrape at my scalp, and this feels slightly painful. So off I go to boots in search of a better shower comb and this was what I found
Goody Ouchless shower comb for £3.59

The teeth are closer together than the superdrug shower comb so I can actually detangle my hair much more thoroughly, however this comb isn't as Ouch-less as you may think. The tighter packed teeth require more patience when detangling so I really have to be more careful, otherwise I'll end up with more knots and tangles than what I started with. 
I wouldn't recommend this comb to anyone with textures tighter than 3b curls because you really have to use this comb on small sections of hair to detangle painl…

Hair Creams and Bath Time Treats

Image
This was not meant to happen. I was only supposed to buy everyone's Christmas presents in advanced but ended up buying a few things for myself!!! It's impossible to walk into a Lush store and buy just one item when everything smells and looks so scrumptious.
But never mind that, prepare yourself for way too many pics of the two bath bombs I tried. Warning!!! some photos are blurry.

If you can't read the label this is the Butterball Bath Ballistic. It claims to put moisture back into the skin which may have been lost during a hot bath. The butterball smells quite nice and it contains cocoa butter which is what gives it the moisturising properties. I have to say that after bathing with the butterball my skin wasn't as dry as usual but I still needed to use a body lotion afterwards.

It foams up quite a lot and has this brown tinge to it which I'm assuming is the cocoa butter. This may look dirty and off putting to some, but it fades away once you swirl it around.

Organic World Moroccan Argan Oil conditioner

Image
I found this conditioner in Discount UK for £2.99 however I did spot it in bodycare too and in TK Maxx for £4.99. Online it retails for £9.99 so I was very chuffed to know I bought it for a fraction of the price.

The ingredients in this conditioner are very simple and don't look like anything special from a normal every day conditioner however this one contains Argan oil which is why I bought it.
So first impressions......
Well I was disappointed to find out that it wasn't as thick as I thought it would be. It's smooth and creamy but still has a lot of slip so at least it's good for detangling and co-washing. After rinsing it out my hair is reasonably easy to comb through and after towel drying my curls are nicely defined and moisturised. This conditioner is thicker and more moisturising than the herbal essences conditioners and even the Pantene pro-V range. It's too thick to be used as a leave-in, especially on fine hair. but it probably works best as a wash &…
