Review: Ecotools Buffing Brush

Ecotools Buffing Brush - £8.95 via eBay

I've always heard good things about ecotools but never indulged myself. I liked their ethos and I personally prefer synthetic brushes (as long as they're soft!). I've wanted a buffing brush for so long but I didn't want to risk ordering from Sigma and I also didn't want to buy the whole Real Techniques Core collection. I was surprised to find that ecotools even HAD a buffing brush but I decided to give it a whirl!

I ordered this from eBay and it arrived really fast. First thing I noticed was how soft it is! It's so lovely and it blends products like a dream. It's my go to foundation brush at the moment and it gives a flawless finish. The price is amazing for what you get.

I haven't tried other buffing brushes so I can't compare but someone said that if the sigma f80 and the RT buffing brush had a baby - it would be this brush. Weird way to put it but I understand it!

Overall I really recommend this brush. You can get it in boots or you can buy it online. I really want to buy this set of ecotools brushes for £3.50! Such a bargain.

Review: John Frieda Full Repair Range ( + small giveaway)

pssst! Yes the beauty blog is back!

Shampoo + Conditioner: What I liked about these two were that even though they provided moisture, they didn't weigh down your hair. You still had volume and your hair felt squeaky clean. However I wouldn't say they're groundbreakingly special. While I didn't dislike them, I didn't think they were amazing.

Deep Conditioner: I really like this! It has a very special consistency, it's quite runny. This makes it run through your hair and cover all the strands really well and it's very light-weight feeling. My hair feels really soft and silky afterwards. One of my favourites out of the whole line!

Root Lift Foam: I had high hopes for this. I adore my other John Frieda mousse but this is very different. It's not an aerosole nozzle sort of thing and it dispenses a little at a time. It just didn't do anything for my hair but I imagine it being good with fine hair.

Styling Spray: My favourite of the range! This does so much! It detangles, softens, smoothes, acts as a heat protectant and helps dry my hair quicker. It's a fine mist and is so easy to use. I really really love this product.

Perfect Ends: I actually have two of these now. It just adds extra moisture to places you need it, like the ends of your hair. I wouldn't say it's as amazing as Moroccan oil but it is nice.
