EYOVA | Egg Oil For Hair Growth?

As you may already know from me constantly ranting on about it, I love a natural hair fix and I am a massive fan of protein treatments. My best one being my DIY damaged hair saviour - egg mixed with olive oil and deep conditioner. Even though it's absolutely revolting it's cheap and effective my hair literally soaks it up and always feels x10 stronger afterwards.

Today I want to share with you EYOVA's egg oil which is a new alternative to my messy DIY fix. I was kindly gifted a sample to try and I was so excited because I know that (from my experience with 'egging' my hair) eggs are amazing for stimulating hair growth! So basically, this is what sold me - one bottle of Eyova contains 50ml of product which has the goodness of 22 eggs! Crazy right? 


So what about the ingredients?

To break it down EYOVA contains pure egg yolk which is rich in nutrients including fatty acids such as omega 3 and cholesterol and several antioxidants. So, the omega 3 combats dry and brittle hair, hair loss and helps to add elasticity to your hair which all help to stimulate hair growth. The antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthin help improve the scalp conditions, increasing skin elasticity and skin hydration. Cholesterol has deep conditioning effect and heals and strengthens the hair shaft, reducing frizz and lending shine and smoothness to the hair. But it's  not just good for hair growth it can also be used to prevent premature hair loss, prevent premature hair greying, eliminates dandruff and repairs hair damage so it's basically an all in one hair fix which is 100% natural. If you want to find out more have a little look at the video below.



How does it work?

It works as a scalp massage oil you apply it and leave it on for 3 hours but I prefer to use it over night and then wash it off in the morning with a deep cleansing shampoo. I tried using one of my gentle sulphate-free shampoos and it didn't really take all of the product out so I would recommend a deep shampoo such as tresemme deep cleansing shampoo. I definitely prefer this oil to my DIY treatment as its a lot less messy, its not as sticky and its smell is somewhat pleasant. 

What are the results?

Well I have been using this product for almost a month now and I can feel that my hair is much stronger and more resilient to daily tasks such as brushing as I am also noticing a reduction in breakage. The only con of this product is the size! It comes in 50ml bottle which I feel just isn't enough to last me more than 4 weeks.. Even though my hair is quite fine it is extremely dense so I need alotta product! 

What do you think of EYOVA egg oil? Let me hear your thoughts!

The Sheer Dress
I ADORE this trend, I absolutely love the sheer look. I see this a lot on the high street actually the sheer overlay dresses seem to be trending everywhere at the moment! But this is definitely a look that can add dimension and a sexy flare to any outfit.

The Monochrome Tuxedo
Appearing on the Dior, Celine S/S 2015 catwalk, the womenswear tux is a fun way to spice up an outfit. You can wear with tailored trousers for a smart, professional look - perfect for a job interview! But it can also be paired with a skirt or a pair of high waisted shorts with a bright coloured clutch and high heeled pumps for a more feminine, fun look. The world is your oyster!

Khaki is wear its at. It's that classic, timeless colour that has a mix of androgyny & sexy. Easily matched with deeper tones such as blacks, browns and greys. Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Micheal Kors and Ralph Lauren have featured it within their catwalks in various textures from suede's to silk it is definitely the must have colour for S/S 2015

Aztec Secret: Indian Healing Clay Mask

The Indian Healing Clay Mask by Aztec Secret claims to be the "worlds most powerful facial" some reviews I have read even rated it higher than the renowned GlamGlow Mud Mask (which is triple the price) known to be a keen favourite amongst celebrities. One of the key features of the Indian Healing Clay Mask that motivated me to purchase over the GlamGlow range was the fact that it is all natural with one listed ingredient - 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite. 

"100% Natural. No additives. No fragrances. No Animal Testing. No Animal Products" 


The mask in its original state is in the form of a green powder, so be careful when opening as I didn't know this and silly me spilled it all over my laptop. But you get a ridiculous amount in this 1LB tub for £12.75! So what you have to do is dilute the powder with apple cider vinegar (ACV) or water to form it into a clay consistency - remember to use a non-metal bowl and utensil as metal can interfere with the Calcium Bentonite and we don't want that! I choose to use water as my face is quite sensitive and I thought ACV may be a little harsh on my skin. After I mixed for around 5 minutes, I lathered a thick layer of clay on all around my face, left it on for around 15 minutes and then rinsed off. 


When I had the clay on I could feel my face literally pulsate like it says on the tub! But it wasn't uncomfortable or painful - it just felt like a slight cooling sensation. After I removed the mask, my skin definitely felt thoroughly cleansed and refreshed and much less oily. After a few days I noticed my pores appeared tighter, my usually very oily T-Zone was not as oily, my skin was just much more refined and smoother in general and some of my pimples had really settled down and I have not had a fresh spot (as of yet).  I think this clay might just be a new bathroom staple for me so I am definitely going to continue using it once a week. 


The only thing I would note is that your face may get a little dry after using this product so remember to moisturise after use. I like to use it before I go to bed so to ensure my face is moisturised for the morning, I mix a few drops of 100% Argan Oil with my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Daily Moisturiser to my face and neck area (you can also use on the ends of your hair as an overnight treatment) and this will make sure you wake up radiant!

My Top Nude Nail Polish for Under £5!

Hi guys! Sorry for not posting in a while, I have just moved house and on the process I lost my DSLR camera .. so I have been spending my days non-stop crying  (only kidding) but I am very upset because I can't afford to buy a new camera so I am having to use my iPhone at the moment. I have been wanting to write this post for a while as I found the most perfect nude nail polish and just HAD to share.

Firstly, who doesn't love a good nude nail colour that will look ever so chic and match any outfit ? I would describe the perfect nude as one in which flatters your skin tone. To be fair, my skin tone changes depending on the season so it can be hard finding the perfect nude for my brown complexion. But for this winter period I think I have definitely found a winner! It's the Collection (formally Collection 2000) gel nail polish in Almost Nude (below) which I got from Superdrug for £3.19. 


There were a few other close contestants which are also such a bargain including the 2 True Nail colour in Shade 11 £1.99, & Collection Work the Colour £1.99 Collection in Stormy Grey £3.19 (from left to right)
