Most of them have been staples in my beauty cabinet for a long time, and while I have written a full review on RMS’ un cover-up and Badger’s hair oil (here & here) I can’t stop raving about them, especially now that I’ve found out that they work even better in conjuction with other products I have.
Rahua Voluminous shampoo
Flat, dull, fine hair…look no further, this is for you. While the price tag might be dissuasive at first, I can assure you that the bottle will last you AGES! A little goes a very long way.
Vegan and 100% natural, Rahua is a high-end product, but it belongs to the pantheon of great hair products. Its light consistency and lovely fresh herbal scent are making it a dream to use in the Summertime. It’s been part of my haircare routine for over a year and I’ve noticed a significant decrease in hairloss. Everytime I use it, my flat hair gets that much-needed oohph.
Badger’s Seabuckthorn, Apricot & Pomegranate hair oil
Reviewed (here) this is a magical oil, it nourishes and fortifies hair, while adding some shine. You can either do an oil treatment one hour before washing your hair, or leave it overnight. Most of the times, I do the latter.
Rms Beauty un cover-up shade 22
Reviewed (here) this is simply the only concealer I use. Creamy, with a great coverage, this little pot has been lasting me for several months, and it has done a fantastic job concealing redness and covering dark undereyes.
Gaia Creams Chia & Peach Kernel serum*
A miraculous oil! A nourishing but super light oil, packed with chia oil, peach kernal oil, amaranth extract and Frankincense oil. I’ve found it to be very soothing, it calms the redness pretty much instantly. I have oily skin, but this one is not a breakout inducing oil. On the contrary, I’ve found it very effective preventing spots and blemishes. It’s supremely gentle and definitely suitable for sensitive skin. I’ll get back to Gaia Creams products in a future post, because these raw, vegan, cruelty-free, palm-oil free products deserve a post on their own.
Now what happens when you pair up Rahua with Badger, and Gaia with RMS? Simply happy hair and a happy makeup look!
Rahua Voluminous shampoo/Badger Seabuckthorn oil
I credit this oil for fortifying my hair and improving its overall appearance. However, the biggest drawback of using oil remains its difficulty to remove, even after washing the hair (especially for a gal with fine and oily hair like me). Most of the time, I still have to deal with oily residues. With Rahua, I don’t have this problem, one wash is more than enough to get rid of any eventual greasiness. My scalp feels clean and it brings out my newly revitalized hair. Rahua’s voluminous shampoo contains Lemongrass and Green tea, both of which contribute in removing excess oils and restoring hair balance. This could explain why it does the job so well.
Gaia Creams Chia & Peach Kernel & RMS un cover-up
Gaia’s Chia serum manages to prep your skin for makeup and works absolutely fantastic as a primer, before applying concealer or foundation. Because of the serum’s soothing properties and its slight gel consistency, – thanks to the Chia seeds – it really feels like applying a protective layer on the face. Overtime, RMS tends to glide and settle on fine lines (especially under the eyes). However, this oil manages to prevent this and thus, create a very natural-looking finish. Also, I was afraid, that in this hot and humid weather, RMS might be too oily to use, but since applying this serum first, the oil excess has been kept under control.
