Review: Kérastase Discipline Keratin Thermique Crème

Gorgeous, lustrous, silky smooth and shiny hair is every woman´s dream; it all starts with finding the best hair products for our hair that often needs a little extra care. If you´ve been reaching for the heat styling tools too often, then it´s time to invest in a heat protectant. Flat irons, blow dryers and curling irons destroy proteins in your hair, as well as stripping your hair’s natural oils. In order to prevent my hair from becoming damaged and broken, I opted for Kérastase Discipline Keratin Thermique Crème.

Kérastase Discipline Keratin Thermique Crème is a part of  ´´Discipline´´ range, made for frizzy and unruly curly hair. My hair may not be that unruly and curly, but it´s frizzy. Story of my life goes like this: I would style my hair; it would be perfectly sleek and straight. I would leave my house looking great and then boom, after 10 minutes, my hair is wavy and frizzy again. I know I am not the only one having this problem, so if you struggle with frizzy hair too, then keep on reading!

Kérastase about Keratin Thermique Crème:

´´ The intense and protective care of a cream. Anti-frizz action.´´

INSTANT RESURFACING ACTION

– Blow-dry perfecting care to transform the look off the hair fibre;

– Hair looks instantly shinier and feels smoother, as if resurfaced.

INTENSE & INSTANT CARE

– Hair is protected against breakage. 

THERMIQUE RESULTS:

– Hair looks shinier and feels smoother and protected; 

– Hair dries 2X faster.´´

Amari about Keratin Thermique Crème:

I was skeptical at first when I read all those claims mentioned above, but this cream did everything for my hair. I can’t see any difference when it comes to hair breakage, but I’ve definitely noticed that my blow dry time was cut down drastically. My hair felt soft and looked smooth and silky. I noticed that even my dry ends looked somewhat smooth and healthy. This cream really does an excellent job taming my hair and there is no need for me to worry about humidity in the air anymore.

Packaging, directions for use and final thoughts:

The cream comes in a sleek plastic tube which looks great and is convenient to use. You can easily squeeze out the perfect amount of product, preventing any unnecessary wastage. This is a leave-in product and it is recommended to smooth a chestnut-sized quantity through lengths and ends of shampooed towel-dried hair. Detangle your hair with a brush and blow dry as usual and you are good to go! The cream has a floral scent that is very pleasant but quite strong, I would say. That doesn´t bother me because I like strong scents, but if you have any concerns, the scent fades soon after application.

There are three variations of Kerastase heat protectants depending on your hair type. Resistance Ciment Thermique helps strengthen weakened hair; Nutritive Nectar Thermique prevents roughness and dullness of hair and the last one is one which I wrote about, Dicipline Keratine Thermique. They retail for about 23 EUR and are available at kerastase.com

I`m in love with this product and I’ll be purchasing it again when I run out.

Review: The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer

Hello my beauties,

as we all know, good primers should smooth pores, prolong the makeup wear, blur imperfections, mattify or hydrate our skin and allow our makeup to go on beautifully. It is not always easy to find a primer that meets all those conditions. Keep on reading if you want to know is The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone on the top of the primer game!

The Ordinary is one of the many brands of the ´´DECEIM´´ company, and as they claim, The Ordinary is “Clinical formulations with integrity“. All of their products are free of parabens, sulphates and mineral oils. DECIEM does not test on animals either.

Few months ago I`ve purchased a few of their products, and I must admit, I`m pretty impressed with all the goodies that I tried. So I thought I should share my thoughts on the High-Adherence Silicone primer first.

THE ORDINARY ABOUT HIGH-ADHERENCE SILICONE PRIMER:

´´This formula uses advanced adaptive silicones to act as a matte, hydrating, blurring primer for makeup that looks higher in definition and adheres for longer. The formula can also be used alone as a non-greasy hydrator that reduces the looks of pores and of imperfections.´´

This primer comes in a sleek, travel friendly plastic tube. When it comes to the formula of the primer, I was surprised. The primer doesn’t feel like a traditional silicone primerbut it feels more like a moisturizing skin balm. It is very hydrating and it minimizes dry patches on the skin, what normally silicone primers tend to emphasize. This primer really does a great job at blurring pores. It leaves my skin silky smooth, the foundation applies beautifully over the top and the makeup stays fresh all day long! It works great on my combination and sensitive skin as it doesn’t encourage oil, nor clog the pores.

Honestly, I think this is an amazing primer and I will definitely continue to use it. It retails for 5 EUR and it is available on theordinary.com.

Have you already tried this primer?

Love,

Ana Maria
