Since my teenage years I have used salt sprays to achieve those lovely beach waves that some girls are blessed with. After a long period of straightening my hair I thought I would give it a heat break and embrace my natural waves.
L’Oreal have recently brought out a collection of hair styling products and this beach wave mist was on promotion in Boots for £4.99 as part of the new range so I thought I would give it a try.
How I created my wavy hair
Just before going to bed I would spray this through the lower half of my hair towards the ends and french braid it. Then, in the morning, I would undo the plait and spray a bit more in my hair whilst scrunching up the ends to achieve a messy, beachy wave.
What I liked about the product
This might sound like a strange thing to love, but I really like the pump! It distributes the product into your hair so evenly like a fine mist so you don’t have to use a lot. Also, The neck of the pump features a handy lock to stop it leaking when travelling.
In the past I found salt sprays would make my hair dry, knotted and left a greasy residue but this did none of those things. I could easily run a bush through my hair without it getting tangled or leaving my hair frizzy.
The spray is lightly scented but you can’t really smell it on your hair which is great if you don’t like strong smelling products.
Overall I would give this a 5/5! It is the best salt spray I have ever used and I love how my hair looks and feels when using it.
Have you tried any of the new L’Oreal Stylista hair range?

I was so excited and extremely grateful when Influenster emailed me to tell me I was going to receive my first ever VoxBox! Inside I found two gel eyeliners by Marc Jacobs beauty in the shades ‘Earthquake’ and ‘Deja Blue’.*
I wear eyeliner most days so I was intrigued to see how I would get on with these. I won’t lie, I never envisioned myself wearing blue eyeliner so I was a little apprehensive about that one, but I knew I would love the dark brown colour as it is one of my go-to shades.
Firstly the formula is super creamy, and they glide on really well without tugging the delicate eye skin. I found the blue shade was slightly more creamier than the brown one, but they were both easy to use. I like to use a small liner brush and buff the Earthquake shade out to create a soft, smokey line – perfect for giving the eyes a subtle bit of definition. They are very pigmented too which is great!
I was really impressed the packaging. It feels very sleek and looks rather stylish. Also the eyeliners twist up so you don’t have to worry about sharpening them.
When it came to taking my makeup off at the end of the day I had no problems with this eyeliner. I usually use micellar water and I found a few wipes with a cotton pad were enough to remove all traces of makeup from my eyes. Sometimes my eye skin can get quite sensitive but these did not irritate my eyes so I was very pleased about that too.
Overall I really enjoyed using these, particularly the brown shade. I’m excited to play around more with the blue shade to create some pastel, springtime looks in the next few months.
Have you guys tried out any high end eyeliners? I what did you think?
Thank you for reading, and have a lovely day!
