Reviews on new beauty products, from the great British high street, to high end. Favourite lipstick shades and make up tricks. Using the minimum of make up with a focus on great skin care.
This post is a bit of a #throwback #flashback, in other words it should’ve been posted a lOng time ago any hoo… This summer a hair company called Bouclème approached me about being part of a campaign promoting a new product they were launching later in the year. So who are Boucleme? (Boo – Clem) Let me give you a little background.
Bouclème is a hair brand that specialises in curly hair. It was created out of the desire of having an all natural ingredients, that doesn’t weigh the hair down, and its free from sulphate and silicone. The Boucleme brand cares passionately about curly hair and the planet we inhabit. They believe in sustainability and farmers being paid fairly. They use fair-trade ingredients wherever possible. The ingredients are biodegradable making Boucleme safe for the environment and also safe for the body. All their packaging are also recyclable.
If you know much about afro hair you would know that it needs moisture, and due to the cold weather and day to day styling its especially difficult to keep it hydrated. I discovered the Boucleme intensive moisture mask which retains moisture and I use this mask every 2 - 4 weeks. This is perfect for when you've just taken your hair out of braids and it needs some intensive treatment. This is my go to treatment, my 4c hair texture loves it.
My story so far...

The Charlotte Mensah - Manketti oil
Today's post is all about my favourite new hair product. If you've been following the blog then you would notice that I don't do many posts on beauty. The main reason behind that is I'm very fussy about the products I use on my hair and skin. I tend to stick to the very basic, so up until now, my daily hair regime had been a Coconut and Shea butter mix, water, and black Castor oil until I discovered Manketti oil. Now when I first heard of this oil, I thought 'here we go a[...]
Farfetch has already secured itself as an established high end fashion and accessories online boutique, so it wasn't a surprise when earlier this year they launched a beauty section on their site introducing luxury brands such as Chantecaille, Eve Lom, and By Terry from SpaceNK. I was very pleased to be invited to an evening of make up, food and mingling with other beauty bloggers. For their years of experience in high end fashion Farfetch were more than equipped to talk us through the connection between catwalk trends and[...]
