Big Collective Haul (The Body Shop, Avene, La Roche Posay, Redken, Sexy Hair etc.)

 I haven't done a haul post in..... I don't know, maybe two months? Which is a long time for me! But all this time I've done a few mini hauls, mostly online for some new skincare and haircare goodies so I've been waiting to collect all them so I can include them in one big haul post. 
So let's start!
I really wanted to start using salon hair products so I needed to do some online shopping to find a few good ones. I'll star first twith the stuff that I got from Beautybay, I got a new curl enhancer because summertime it's almost here and I always let my hair dry naturally at summer,  for me that means curly hair. For those who have naturally curly hair can understand how undefined and frizzy natural curls can be so I always use a curl enhancer. For almost two years I've been using the Sunsilk curling leave-in cream (the green bottle) but now I wanted to try something else so I chose the Curly Sexy Hair Curling Cream, I've been using it for almost two months and I love it! If I don't use a lot of this product it creates beautiful and super soft loose curls and I prefer these over the tighter ones. I'm in a very "curly hair" mood lately, I'm planning to try more products for curly hair this summer! Also from Beautybay I got the Macadamia Oil No Tangle Brush, which I fell in love with. At first I wasn't completely sure if I was going to like it or not because I've never tried a brush like that, but I did like it and now I use it all the time. It does wonders right before I shampoo my hair because my hair's curly and it always gets tangled so that makes it difficult for me to run my fingers through my hair when I wash it, I have to say that this brush has helped a lot with that problem.

I was in search for a good conditioner that would leave my hair extremely soft, I read so many good reviews about the Redken All Soft Conditioner so I decided to get that one from Lookfantastic. But to be honest I'm not that impressed with it, I don't know why because it seems that everyone loves it, but all of the times that I've used it it never left my hair soft or smooth, the drugstore ones that I've been using all these years are way better than this one. If any of you have tried this conditioner, please let me know if you like it or not, I'm curious to know.

Recently from Feelunique I got this leave-in conditioner, the Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner Spray , wow that is a huge name for a leave-in spray. Also I've read the best reviews about this one, I haven't tried it for more than three times and so far I'm still not sure if I like it or not. It does miracles controlling the frizziness but after my hair's dry it doesn't feel soft or anything like that, it feels kind of rough and I don't know if that's happening because of the protein it contains. But I will continue using it to see if I like it or not.
From various greek pharmacies online shops, the pharm24.gr and the ofarmakopoiosmou.gr I got a few skincare stuff. I was looking for a new cleanser to try because my previous one, the Apivita Foam Cleanser with Lavender and Olive was a bit too heavy for my oily skin right now so I decided to get the Avene Cleansing Foam which is for combination to oily skintypes. I've been using it for almost 2 months and I really like it, it cleanses well without making my skin feel tight afterwards but I'm not so sure if I'll repurchase it or not because I'm not so into the foaming cleansers, I prefer the gel ones especially at summer. Nevertheless it's a really good cleanser for combination skitypes. I also got the matching moisturizer, the Avene Mattifying Fluid which I don't like that much. It clogs my pores and I've noticed a few pimples around my chin area. I will continue using it but I had higher expectations for this one. Two more skincare products that I got is a new bottle of my beloved La Roche Posay Physiological Micellar Solution, and this time I got the small bottle because it's more travel friendly for the summertime. Last for skincare I got a double packet of the Apivita Face Mask with Propolis for the bad skin days when I'm having break outs and stuff. 
When I found out that Body Shop re-released the Viveyard Peach line I had to run and get a few stuff, because the last time they released this line I didn't get anything and I still regret it. I got the body lotion and the body mist and OMG these two smell like heaven, it's like I'm smelling a ripe peach, if you've never smelled anything from this line, you have to!
Last but not least I got two products from the drugstore, my absolute HG concealer the Seventeen Ideal Cover Liquid Concealer, I finished my last tube of this a few months ago and no matter how many concealers I own I need to have this particular one in my collection! I also got a nail polish, the Erre Due Last Minute in #398 Peter Pan, which is a beautiful sky blue color. I generally don't like blue nail polishes, I don't think they compliment my skintone but that shade of blue is one my favorites and so I searched a lot at the drugstore to find one and that's the only one I could find. I love Erre Due's nail polishes, they have a huge selection of colors.



So that's everything that I hauled the past two months. Let me know if you've tried any of these products, I wanna know your opinions about them.

  10. Ο αφρός της Avene μου αρέσει κι εμένα πολύ! Και μου κρατάει πολύ καιρό, πράγμα περίεργο για αφρό! Ομοίως και για τη βούρτσα Macadamia, με έχει βολέψει απίστευτα
