L’Oreal Préférence Glam Lights Brunch

aaaa

Hello lovelies,

the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of summer hairstyle trends are highlights and by highlights I mean of natural, subtly highlighted hair which looks as if it was lightened by sun. All the same, highlights are not limited to summer – well made highlights can really give the depth to the hair – transforming your hairstyle from plain to Hollywood glamour. To achieve such a look, you’d need to spend both time and money. L’Oreal have, however, decided to simplify the process by creating a new product which will allow you to achieve such a look at home.

L’Oreal Préférence Glam Lights contains everything you need for natural DIY highlights (hair lightening cream, hair dye developer, decolorisation agent, shampoo and brush). You mix lightening cream, developer and decolorisation agent and then apply it to the brush.

aaaa 9

The secret of this system is in the new three-phase brush by which you can easily and evenly apply the hair dye on the hair. The hair dye doesn’t transfer – it stays where it is.

Yesterday I had a chance to convince myself that it really works on L’Oreal Préférence Glam Lights presentation at L’Oreal Academy in Zagreb, where they showed us how to use this system on Croatian actress Leona Paraminski.

At the beginning of the presentation we were greeted by L’Oreal manager Ana Andrašek and we watched a short film featuring L’Oreal’s ambassador Blake Lively.

After the film Marijana Gabud, the colorist demonstrated the whole process, step by step, on Leona to show us how simple the application is. Even Leona got the chance to try her hand in application and, according to her, it is really easy.

Depending on how light you want your hair to be, you can leave it on from 25 to 45 minutes. Marijana showed us that L’Oreal Préférence Glam Lights work even on dyed hair, but it won’t work on grey hail.

L’Oreal Préférence Glam Lights are available in three shades:

Glam Lights # 1 for light blonde to very light blonde hair

Glam Lights # 2 for dark blonde to light blonde hair and

Glam Lights # 3 for light brown to dark blonde hair.

We had a small brunch while we were waiting for the hair dye to take effect, when I had a chance to get a recommendation for my hair colour (I’m supposed to use #2).

40 minutes later, Leona showed us the results – beautiful, subtly highlighted hair with golden sheen.

aaaa 3

I can see that this set will be the hit. It is already available in DM drugstores (probably in others, too, but I haven’t had the time to check) and it retails for 65 kunas ($12).

 

In the end, all attendees received a gift-bag which contained L’Oreal Préférence Glam Lights set, Arginine Resist shampoo and detangles and new L’oreal Miss Manga mascara.

aaaa 10

I would like to thank L’Oreal Paris Croatia and Alert for inviting me. I really enjoyed the brunch and I’m looking forward to trying L’Oreal Préférence Glam Lights on my hair.

What do you plan to do with your hair this summer?

L’OREAL Elvital Anti-Haarbruch Mask Review and Ingredients

l'oreal elvital mask

 

When it comes to cosmetics, hair care is probably one of the domains I’m least interested in. However, my hair is completely weird – it is very thick and tries to defy the laws of gravity when it shouldn’t.

A couple of months ago I finally got my hair cut (I didn’t cut it for over two years after my last hairdresser had traumatised me) and since I still don’t trust the hairdressers completely, I want to avoid getting it cut for as long as possible.

L’Oreal is known for transferring almost 90% identical formulas from one of its brand to another, so this is the company I trust the most when it comes to hair product (they own Kerastase).

From what little of German I understand, Elvital Anti-Haarbuch Mask is intended to nourish and repair damaged hair.

The mask is very thick in consistency – like a butter and you really have to dig in. Once you get it on your fingers, it is creamier and it easily applies on the hair.

The instructions say to leave it on towel-dried hair for 2 to 3 minutes – I usually leave it up to 10 minutes.

I’m currently using Subrina Anti-Dandruff shampoo, which is effective against dandruff, yet it tangles my hair. The mask detangles it without a problem.

As for its efficiency, I have noticed that my hair is softer and easier to style. It is not damaged at all, but I’m using the mask for almost a month and when I started it, my hair was undamaged. Usually, I get split ends after a month, but so far there is no split ends.

So far I’m pretty satisfied, but I need to give it more time for better estimation.

Project 10 Pans Samples Challenge

During spring, I’ve made a plan of finally finishing some products from my stash. I haven’t updated it for a while, but it is only because I haven’t managed to spend anything. Later I have also announced a possibility to include more samples in the challenge.

Last week I have finally managed to find some time so I’ve been rearranging my cosmetics storage and I have figured out that I have tons of samples and testers. As I’m a bit afraid that they don’t go bad, I’ve picked several products I would like to spend. Some of these are already reviewed, as I’ve been using them before, but some I’ll have to test for the first time. I will only write a review if the product was tested for at least a week of daily usage.

Project 10 Pans: Part 3 – Body and Haircare

Last Saturday, I’ve announced my new project through which I’m hoping to finally get rid some of the stuff from my stash. There are 42 product on the list, so I’ve split them up into three parts (makeup, skincare, body and haircare).

CARITA Le Cheveu Revitalising Scrub For The Scalp Review

When I first heard of scalp exfoliators, I was very sceptical and I thought that it would be just a waste of money. But I’m glad Carita proved me wrong.

The exfoliator contains grounded sunflower and jojoba seeds, which look pretty big and one might think that the exfoliation will be too harsh, but they provide very gentle exfoliation. The exfoliator has a onderful scent – it smells like hazelnuts and almonds.

I separate the dry hair into wide sections and apply the exfoliator on the scalp. I massage it for several minutes, rinse off and wash the hair with the shampoo.

The difference in my hair is really obvious. After the exfoliation, the hair looks healthier, stronger and has more volume.

The exfoliator is pricey (it cost me aronund $35), but it comes in a big 150ml tube and it is impossible to spend. One tube usually lasts me for almost two years if I exfoliate one time per week.
