The best snail gel | Dr Organic Snail Gel Review

If you’re anything like me you love finding that underrated product that even though it’s not shouted about all over YouTube and the beauty community, you know it to be better than those hyped-up products everyone else mentions.

For any beauty / skincare lover, finding that diamond in the rough product is the highlight of your year, and you find yourself trying to tell as many people as possible about ‘your’ discovery and how it has changed your life. For this reason I wanted to start sharing with you some of my beauty discoveries that I think should be getting a little more love and try and understand why there are not more people talking about these products.

I have recently purchased my fourth tub of the Dr Organic Snail Gel, in preparation for when I finish my current one, which I’ve been rationing and scraping the bottom of for the past couple of weeks. This is one of those products for which I always wonder why people are not talking more about it, especially since I find it to be the best snail gel treatment product I have ever tried. I have literally never heard anyone saying they use or that they even know about this product, while I find that this is one I swear by and always end up going back to.

Why are people not talking about this product?

Although I’m sure many people are put off by the fact that this is in fact a ‘snail’ gel, I assure you that it is not slimy or disgusting in any way. The product itself smells slightly lemony and it is a very light gel that is easily absorbed into the skin. The Dr Organic Snail Gel is moisturising, anti-aging and helps against scars. It is a gel texture that is easily absorbed into the skin and works great under makeup or as your night treatment / moisturiser.

The Dr Organic Snail Gel contains the Helix Aspera Muller which is the unique ingredient that the snail uses to quickly regenerate its own shell and skin when damaged. So you can imagine how the properties of this ingredient work great on maintaining gorgeous and healthy skin, as well as helping against acne scars and aging skin!

Why you should try the Dr Organic Snail Gel?

This product works great whatever skin type you have. Whether it is dry, oily or combination, the Dr Organic Snail Gel doesn’t dry out your skin or make it feel greasy. It is a thin layer that is powerful in what it does. It keeps your skin hydrated and protected without clogging up your pores.

If you would like to learn more about the Dr Organic brand, I have done a Dr Organic Brand Introduction post, which you can check out.

Greasy Hair No More | VO5 Dry Shampoo Review

VO5, dry shampoo, greasy hair, volume, hair, review

If there is one thing I truly hate is having greasy hair! Unfortunately for me I have oily roots that tend to get greasy really quickly. Even though I know that you’re not supposed to wash your hair too often, I usually wash mine either every other day or if the weather is as hot and humid as it has been lately, every day.

One product that has been a game changer in helping me deal with greasiness is dry shampoo! I cannot shout enough phrases for dry shampoo. I use it every day. I have a stash of them just to ensure I never run out and I feel it’s the perfect product that gives you a bit of volume and generally makes your hair look better, even when you’re having a bad hair day.

My ultimate favourite dry shampoo range is the from VO5. The brand has dry shampoo in two formulas; one being for fine, flat or oily hair called Plump it Up, and one that is for normal to oily hair called Refresh Me Quick. I love both for different reasons and will use both on different days or occasionally combined. The dry shampoo comes in a bright pink aerosol can, which distributes a fine, even mist to your hair.

The reason I love the VO5 Dry Shampoo so much is that it leaves no white residue in my hair. As dark haired ladies know, dry shampoo can be a pain in the *** if you have dark hair, making you look as you have been showering under talc powder all day. Then you end up having to really work the product in your roots and sometimes even use a hair dryer to completely dissolve the white dust. Quite a lot of effort for something which is supposed to cut down the time you take to do your hair in the morning. I find that this happens to me with one of the most popular brands that everyone is always raving about and for some time that was the only brand that was available to me.

But then I discovered the VO5 Dry Shampoo and it changed everything for me. I love using the Refresh Me Quick, the first day of washing my hair. It is lighter on the hair and doesn’t leave much of a residue behind. This works great on fairly clean hair that doesn’t have much grease. The Plump It Up is better to boost the volume of the hair. This dry shampoo works great on greasy, second-day or older hair.

If I am in-between washes, I like to apply dry shampoo before I go to sleep, work it in but do not brush it. This helps get rid of some of the excess oils while I sleep, giving the dry shampoo more time to absorb the oils.

The thing to keep in mind with dry shampoo is to shake the product really well before spraying into the hair and that less is more. Start of with a couple sprays where your hair tends to get most greasy and work it into the roots. I also like to leave it to soak for a couple minutes and then comb my hair through to make sure that there are no white bits or tangles. It is also important to keep in mind that using dry shampoo will leave residue on your roots, therefore it is vital for your hair that you use a deep cleansing shampoo every so often to make sure that you are removing any excess from your scalp.

I have gone through more than 10 cans of the VO5 dry shampoo and although they have no fancy scents, it is the dry shampoo I always have a backup of!

My experience with Bio-Oil

Bio Oil, acne, scars, blemishes

A little over three months ago I was given the opportunity to try out the Bio-Oil Multiuse Skincare Oil which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, which is meant to be highly effective for skin concerns, such as aging skin and dehydration. This product, I am sure needs no introduction to the avid skincare lovers who use this product in their everyday regimes. The product is also recommended for scars and stretch marks but its uses range to much more than that.
