Review: John Frieda Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo

Hi everyone!

Today I'm finally doing a review on this Go Blonder Shampoo by John Frieda. I've been planning to do this for months so I'm excited to finally tell you guys what I think about this product :)

Check out my video review here

Application: Cleans & gets rid of dirt very well, removes any product build-up leaving your hair squeaky clean!

Hair Feels: Soft & Manageable just like any other shampoo. It doesn't feel dry or damaged, so this shampoo is safe to use as often as you want and even on weak hair.

Scent: Fresh, zesty lemon smell; very refreshing so great to use in the morning!

Lightening: gradually lightens hair that has been processed before. So you will see an effect if your hair has been died or bleached before, whereas your natural hair colour will stay the same.

Recommended Use: Once in 2-3 days would be perfect and you will start to see a difference after a few weeks.

Colour: This shampoo can be used on any hair colour from blonde to brunette; as long as it's not your natural hair colour, you will definitely see a difference.

Price: £5.89 at Boots, so instead of going to the salon you can save yourself some money!

Range: There is a Shampoo, Conditioner and a Lightening Spray, so you can choose whichever product is more convenient for you to use.

So overall, I would definitely recommend this product to you guys! It just depends on what effect you are looking to achieve. Obviously keep in mind that we all have different types of hair, so try this shampoo and see for yourself!

My Summer Beauty Essentials!

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share with you guys some beauty products I've been loving during summer, so I came up with my summer essentials :)

Check out my video here

 It's important to take care of your skin during the summer, because a lot of it will be on show and you want to make sure it looks it's best. So here's a body brush I like to use, which increase circulation, reduces cellulite and generally improves the condition of your skin. I use it on dry skin before I take a shower and I love how it make my skin feel!

Next I have some fake tan, which for me personally is a must-have for the summer! This particular one from Fake Bake gives a natural looking tan, which doesn't go streaky and fades evenly. And then another body product I've been loving is this moisturizer from Garnier. This has a gel-creme texture so it absorbs quickly whilst still hydrating your skin; plus it feels cooling and smells refreshing!

It's also important to take care of your hair, because the sun can sometimes dry it out and damage the ends. So I chose this leave-in conditioner by John Frieda, which is my favourite hair care brand so no surprises there! This has a lightweight formula, which smoothens the hair without making it greasy.

This NARS Tinted Moisturizer has been my go-to foundation for spring and now it's my summer essential. It's just such an amazing product! It lets your skin breathe whilst giving enough coverage for everyday, so I would recommend it to anyone. (Check out my video review here)

For the face I love to use bronzers during the summer time! This one from Bourjois is one of my favourites, as it looks natural and gives a nice healthy glow. And if you haven't guessed from the name, it smells like chocolate!

I've been obsessed with these Revlon Lip Butters, so I had to include one in my summer essentials. This bright pink shade looks gorgeous on the lips and can suit any complexion in my opinion. The formula is also very hydrating, so try one out if you haven't already!

Another lip product I picked is this bright coral lipgloss also from Revlon. Not only is the colour perfect for the summer, but it also smells divine! I always try to wear brighter shades during the warmer months, because otherwise I never will!

To finish things off we all need a gorgeous summer scent. This one from Benefit smells like cocktails, sun lotion, the beach and just fruity yumminess! It's perfect if you're looking for something fun and girly :)

I hope you guys are enjoying the month of August!
