Right guys, I thought I would do a follow up to my post on the Cohorted Beauty Box, which you can read here, because I wanted to make sure that last months box wasn’t a one off, value for money deal. Although I think subscription boxes are a great idea and the epitome of convienience, I’ve recently had a bad experience with one. It wasn’t a beauty box, it was a grocery subscription which cost more per week than the Cohorted Beauty Box costs per month. I thought it was pricey but was happy to pay extra for the convienience but after the boxes arrived damaged and their contents ruined, I had no response from their customer service team and no compensation. I cancelled that subscription straight away and have had a slight gripe with the concept ever since.

Before I tarnish every subscription service with the same brush I wanted to check that I wasn’t being ripped off by some other loophole that I hadn’t noticed before. I started to think about other subscription services that I’ve used and it made me realise that the value for money aspect isn’t always there because of wastage or damage etc. With this in mind, I’m going to review this months Cohorted Beauty Box to see if it can truely live up to it’s price.

Vita Liberata Luxury Trystal Minerals Bronzer – £35

Mineral makeup for the summer is somewhat of a trend but totally one worth following. Vita Liberata has to be my favourite tanning brand, their products are so versatile that they suit all shades. I know I will use this product as a bronzer or contour shade rather than as a tanning product. The value of this product is the same price as the monthly cost of the subscription box so already I feel much better about this subscription service!

Urban Decay ‘Naked’ Lip Liner – £10 (unavailable to purchase individually online)

I’d be happy with any Urban Decay product in a beauty box and if you saw my reaction to opening this box on Snapchat then you’d know I was really excited about this lip liner. It just so happens I’d been eyeing this shade for a little while so I was really pleased. Just like the Vita Liberata powder, this lip liner suits the majority of skin tones so I’m pretty confident it won’t go to waste.

Bettyhula Champagne & Spice Body Moisturiser – £12.99

Once again Cohorted have introduced me to brands I’d never heard of before. I was immediately drawn to this product because I’ve never seen a champagne body butter before which is rather exciting. This is what I especially love about this box is that it allows you to discover brands you might never come across normally.

Loewe Aura Moisturising Body Lotion – £15 (unavailable to purchase online)

I think this has to be my favourite product from this months box. I cannot tell you how good it smells! It is really feminine and light to wear which is perfect for this mini heatwave we’re going through at the moment. It’s also small enough to be travel size so this will stay in my washbag until it’s finished.

Lin & Lo Matte ‘Real Red’ Lipstick – £19

Another brand discovery this month was Lin & Lo who are also a mineral makeup brand. I always think a good lipstick is a great find in a beauty box because I know that at some point or another I will use it. And being a Cohorted box means that the brands are good quality. I really like the peace of mind that comes with quality products, I don’t have to worry about allergic reactions or the product leaking or drying up easily.

So overall this box contains £91.99 worth of product for the price of £35. Last months box was worth £106 so I think it’s safe to assume that each box will amount to £100 on average. A couple of the products included in this months edition are not available to purchase online which in a way makes them slightly more valuable as their not so easy to get hold off. Once again, I can’t find fault with the Cohorted Beauty Box and it’s definitely put my mind at rest about subscription services. I think the moral of the story is do your research before committing to a repeat purchase product or service.

This month I was lucky enough to be sent the Cohorted Beauty Box for April. I’ve heard a lot about this particular beauty box, it is renowned for containing some of the most prestigious beauty brands on the market. We all know the pitfalls of any subscription service, we might like one or two of the items in the package but the rest goes to waste. This box is £35 per month including delivery, which is at the higher end of the price scale but I guess it reflects the brands Cohorted work with. To me £35 is pretty pricey to be shelling out every month just on new beauty products. I’d like to think I don’t spend that normally in a month on cosmetics (although I probably do, oops!). So is it really worth the money?

What I really like about this box is that it comes with a Beauty Box Edit booklet which gives more information about the brands and products in the box. To me, this shows a lot of thought and effort has been put in to helping the receiver use the products correctly. It’s also a great tool to gather inspiration.

Laura Geller Creme Glaze Baked Eyeshadow Trio – £25.66

I’ve never tried any Laura Geller products before, I hadn’t even heard of the brand. But as soon as I saw this Trio palette in Sandy Lagoon I had an immediate urge to try it out! The blue shade might go unused but the other two eyeshadows are fast becoming my favourite to add shimmer for a more dramatic eye look. They also contain Vitamin E which keeps your eyelids soft.

Percy & Reed Eau My Goodness Shine & Fragrance Spray – £22

Ok so a lot of beauty subscriptions use mini’s or sample sizes to pack out their boxes, but not Cohorted. This Percy & Reed Shine spray comes in two sizes, 50ml and 100ml. And yep, I got the 100ml full size in my box. I really love Percy & Reed products, having used quite a few from their range before (see previous post). In all honesty, I’d never really think to purchase this product myself, and after using it I’m still not sure I’d buy it. It’s a great product, it gives a shine and smells lovely but I just wouldn’t remember to use it. But hey, at least I got to try it.

Laura Geller Spackle Neutraliser Colour-Correcting Under Make-Up Primer – £28.34

In my experience colour correctors are hit and miss, especially if you’ve never tested them before. I wasn’t too sure on this product when I first saw it but after reading about it’s benefits in the Beauty Box Edit booklet I started to come around to it. It contains minerals, amino acids, aloe, white tea extract and lots more good stuff. In terms of performance, the verdict is still out on this one but again, I’d never have thought to try it without this beauty box.

Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour – £22

The packaging! You guys know I love pretty looking products and this one ticks the box. I’m really glad I got this in Antique Pink, there were two other colours available with the April edition. I really have no complaints about this product, it has a beautiful finish and it very wearable. I’m not really a lipstick person so perhaps would never have bought this ordinarily, but it is most definitely something I would repurchase.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks – £8

I’d like to think I’ve been using anti-aging prematurely but you can never be too careful. Thankfully, after using the eye masks I didn’t see too much difference to the appearance of my skin apart from looking brighter and feeling more supple. The box contained one set of the eye mask which works out to about £8. You can buy a pack of 6 for around £47.50 on the Elemis website.

So for £35 subscription for this box you would get £106 worth of product! That definitely sounds like value for money to me and I would highly recommend this subscription to anyone who wants to try some new high end brands.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone and bought a new beauty product after hearing rave reviews from bloggers only to be bitterly disappointed. It has to be one of the most annoying and frustrating things. It has made me really cautious when it comes to cult beauty staples these days because as the hype for it grows the cons seem to get lost along the way. And most must-have cosmetics come with a weighty price tag too so it’s not exactly an impulse buy. But recently I have come across a solution to this problem, a brand I can really trust – Charlotte Tilbury.

I had one of those moments after Christmas where I wanted to completely clear out my dressing table and start again. The only problem was, could I really part with the tried and tested cosmetics I rely on every day? The honest answer was no, it had taken too long to find products I get along with to just give them up! But I couldn’t deny that for a long time I’d been looking for more ‘efficient’ makeup.  Don’t get me wrong, I love spending hours getting ready but that’s not feasible every day. But I also didn’t want to compromise the result. After trying various samples from high street and high end brands I settled on Charlotte Tilbury and I wasn’t disappointed.

Charlotte’s Magic Cream

This cream, where do I start! Moisturiser is so important to flawless makeup. I had used the Chanel Sublimage moisturiser which was out of this world, by far my favourite although it could look a bit oily as the day wore on. But I forgave it that, probably just to justify the price. After I finished the first pot, I flitted from face cream to face cream, not liking one enough to purchase again. Until one day I receive a sample of Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Night Cream. It immediately reminded me of Sublimage but had a thicker, more luxurious consistency which I liked. I used it at night and in the day and found that the silky texture really suited my skin. It inspired me to try Charlotte’s Magic Cream which I now use every day regardless of whether I am wearing make up or not. I will definitely be repurchasing this product.

Wonderglow Face Primer

This purchase was a direct result of my all time favourite make up tutorial. Charlotte recreated the wedding look she did for Amal Clooney which is absolutely stunning:

She used the Wonderglow primer in this look and it won me over immediately. It’s such a subtle way to highlight or achieve a natural glow. If you like BB creams or sheer coverage foundations you could probably just use this product on its own because it blurs out imperfections and brightens the skin. It applies just like a cream and makes your skin feel really soft. This has become such a staple for me because it allows me to use less foundation and concealer.

The Retoucher Concealer

Previously I had used a Mac concealer for years and years but I was never really happy with it. It was cakey and creased really easily. I did have reservations about trying a new concealer because it’s really difficult to find the right shade and texture. I decided to take the plunge and try the Retoucher Concealer, I liked how easy the application was in a pen. I was really surprised to find after using it for a couple of days that the end result looked just like foundation but with more coverage. It’s really easy to set with minimal powder so it would be hard to make it look cakey. If I had to find a negative I would say this concealer is not full coverage, if you want to hide bags this probably isn’t for you. But does have a really natural finish that could even be worn instead of foundation.

Eyes To Mesmerise

This is another product that I had to get after watching a few of Charlotte’s YouTube tutorials. It is a cream eyeshadow that has a slight sheen to it which gives a more natural look and is perfect for every dau. If you apply this with a brush it gives a wash of colour but if you apply with your fingers and then blend in it gives a much deeper colour. Either way it is easy and quick to apply. It makes it really versatile and it’s such a dream to blend – much easier than powder eyeshadows. Another great thing about this eyeshadow is that it does not crease even after 12 hours of wear. This is another product that I will definitely repurchase because it is flawless.

magnitone review 5 skincare hacks Magnitone cleansing brushGreat skin starts with great skincare. Try these 5 hacks to transform your skin in no time: 

1. Put Your Toner In The Fridge

Toner is the step that most of us miss out in our skincare routine. But if you suffer from puffiness, spots or redness toner can be extra beneficial to you. Try putting your toner in the fridge for 10 mins before you apply it. Cooling your toner helps to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. It also closes your pores to stop unwanted dirt from clogging them up and causing more spots!

2. Clean Your Phone

Our phones are filthy. We handle them all day, put them down on dirty surfaces and they even come to the loo with some of us. All the grime of daily life ends up on our phone which we then press up against our face. Cleaning your phone regularly with antibacterial spray or wipes can help stop dirt building up an transferring on to your skin. The same goes for your pillowcase. Make sure you wash your pillowcases regularly to stop dirt accumulating. 

3. Use A Cleansing Brush

Exfoliating is a great way to buff away old and dull skin cells to make room for shiny new ones. But manual exfoliating, and all it’s minefields, are a thing of the past. With a cleansing brush you won’t have to worry if your scrubbing delicate areas of your face too hard or whether your cloth is clean enough to use.  There are a number of cleansing brushes on the market, my personal favourite is the Magnitone Barefaced! Facial Cleansing Brush. It has a built in timer which tells you how long to cleanse each area of your face for as well as two settings for a really deep clean. The cleansing brush also acts as a facial massage which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, stimulate blood flow and gets rid of puffiness.

4. Don’t Over Wash Your Face

We all love that feeling of freshly cleansed skin but too much of a good thing can be bad for us too. Washing your face more than 3 times a day or exfoliating too vigorously and too often can strip the skin of its natural oils. It can make the skin dry and irritated and could leave you with more spots than ever. Try washing your face with warm water instead of hot water. Hot water can be damaging for the skin and leaves it dehydrated. 

5. Let Moisturiser Absorb

Moisturiser is a must for every skin type. But be sure to let your skin absorb its goodness for at least 10 mins before you start applying your makeup. Otherwise it will sit on top of your pores mixed with foundation making you look oily! To fully get the benefit of moisturiser, apply it gently to clean skin after using a toner.

EcoTools
Make up brush setsEcoTools reviewMy last Love Me Beauty box contained all the usual amazing goodies but I was really surprised and pleased to find a few sets of the EcoTools brushes to try. I personally have never owned any of these brushes and to be totally honest, I’ve never been compelled to buy them. It might be because the packaging isn’t really to my taste or that I’ve heard mixed reviews about the brushes. Whatever the reason may have been, I’ve really looked forward to testing them out.

What I Liked

Firstly, I have to give credit to EcoTools for their environmental and sustainability commitment. I love their tag line “Beautiful You. Beautiful World.” Not many companies, inside or outside the beauty sector, have made such large and visible commitments to the environment and sourcing responsibly. Their products are 100% cruelty free and use recycled materials and renewable bamboo. As if that wasn’t enough, they also do a lot of charity work. For these reasons, they get a huge thumbs up from me; more companies should take a leaf out of EcoTools book!

So on to the brushes themselves. I was sent four sets; the Essential Eye Set, the Travel Set, the Starter Set and the Day To Night Set. Each set is packaged separately and comes with its own brush case which is great for organising all my make up brushes. I also liked how the description and use of the brushes is explained on the packaging.

The bristles on the brushes are synthetic which makes them super soft. It means that the brushes pick up powder product evenly and apply really smoothly too. For anyone who can be a bit heavy handed with the bronzer or highlighter, the Blush Brush or Angled Face Brush can help you soften the look without having to start again!

The brush sets are very affordable compared to similar brands, averaging about £10 per set depending where you shop. They’d make a great first makeup brush set for anyone who is just starting to use makeup or even for anyone with sensitive skin because the soft bristles are easy to clean.

What I Didn’t Like

I say this a lot in beauty posts, but packaging really can be a deal breaker. For me, the packaging of the sets isn’t that appealing. I understand the branding and packaging has been created to reflect the sustainability element of the business but I’m afraid it just doesn’t do it for me! I like to display my brushes on my dressing table and unfortunately I think these would stay in their cases..in a drawer.

I mentioned the softness of the brushes before but I have to say this is a downfall of the brushes too. While the fluffiness is good for face powder products, it can actually become a pain for any precision work. So anything like eyeliner, brows or applying eyeshadow in specific areas is really tricky and can become messy quickly because the bristles aren’t firm enough.

The size of the brushes are also a major issue for me. I found all of the brushes in the smokey eye kit far too big for their purpose. For example, the flat Eyeshadow Brush is really wide so it picks up more product than what is needed and causes a lot of fallout. But the face brushes were on the small side which meant that I had to apply the makeup multiple times before I was happy. This is a really annoying issue with the brushes and it’s not something I have come across before.

Overall, I’m really glad I had the chance to try EcoTools brushes. They definitely have their good points and I really like their brand message. I think the brushes are probably more suited to someone who is just starting out with makeup rather than for a more experienced person. I’d probably use some of the brushes regularly but most of them aren’t really good enough to replace what I use now.

Love Me Beauty

If you haven’t tried beautyboxes before but you’d like to give it a go, I would really recommend opting for the Love Me Beauty boxes. Not only do you get really great brands like Rodial, Nails Inc and Tangle Teezer, but it is tailored specifically for you. When you sign up to the subscription you will be asked to fill in your profile. It includes things like hair, eye and skin colour, your skincare preferences and favourite makeup products so that you will receive goodies that you are actually interested in.

Pixi beautyGlotion
Pixi BeautyZoeva brushesPixi Beauty Summer Make UpI recently discovered that I have been using the wrong shade of foundation, something I would never have realised if I hadn’t bought the lighter shade by accident!! It got me thinking about how to condense my make up routine to be as quick and as natural as possible. With trends like contouring and baking still all the rage on Instagram, it’s easy for our morning routines to last a couple of hours nowadays. But if you’re anything like me, you’d prefer to spend that extra time in bed. And now that summer is on the way I’d rather opt for a lighter look and not risk my face sliding off in the warm weather! So I’ve teamed up with Pixi Beauty (who are known for their amazing skincare) to create a more manageable summertime routine using a few of their makeup products.

Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Copper Peach

Eyeshadow Palette

As soon as I saw this palette I knew I would love it. Any eyeshadow that is brown/copper/gold is made for me! It has 6 different shades in a mix of matte and shimmer colours. I prefer to use the lighter shimmer shades to highlight my brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes and the dark matte brown on my lid. If copper or brown isn’t really your thing don’t worry, Pixi Beauty have this palette in a variety of shades to compliment all eye colours.

Shop the palettes here.

Lengthy Fibre Mascara

Lengthy Fibre Mascara

Although this is a natural summer look, I still like to make the most of at least one feature and for me I always opt for the eyes. This mascara makes it so easy for your eyes to stand out because it adds about 10x more length than other mascara’s I’ve tried. You can almost see the fibres on the brush when you open the tube; they look like little lashes waiting to catch on to your own. It isn’t a wet mascara either so there’s no danger of clumping. Another impressive feature is that it washes off with minimal effort when you cleanse your face. So no more panda eyes before bed!

Shop the mascara here.

Glowtion Day Dew

Glowtion Day Dew

If you love strobing or just highlighters in general then this product is a must have for you. Glowtion is such a cool name! When you rub the lotion in it starts to give an iridescent glow which blends in to your skin and kind of blurs away imperfections at the same time. It means you could get away with wearing this and just a touch of concealer or if you’re feeling brave then maybe this is all you need for your summer glow!

Shop the glowtion here.

Mattlustre Lipstick in Peach Blossom 

Mattlustre lipstick

This lipstick is like a burst of colour. It’s matte texture makes the colour really intense so if you wanted your lips to be the feature of this look you can certainly achieve it with this shade! For my look I sheered it down by dabbing it over moisturised lips to create a more subtle look. Often dabbing lipstick on gives it a more natural finish rather than sweeping it on.

Shop the lipstick here.

Quick Fix Bronzer

Quick Fix Bronzer

Quick fix is definitely an appropriate name for this bronzer. It comes with a built-in puff and mirror on the lid so that you don’t need any extra brushes or fiddly bits. All you do is dab the puff on your face where you want to apply the bronzer and it comes out automatically which makes it ideal to carry in my makeup bag. It’s one of those bronzers that suit all skin shades and types so you don’t need to worry about looking tangoed!

Shop the bronzer here.

 

Soo, after raving about these products here is the final look in natural light. Glowy and fresh without looking like a sweaty mess.

This post is in collaboration with Pixi Beauty and Wearisma but all views are my own. 

This month I received some Rodial goodies in my Love Me Beauty beautybox. I’ve tried a couple of their makeup products before which I love, especially their Glambrow pencil, however I had never tried any of their skin care but I had high hopes. With names like Pink Diamond Lifting Face Mask (which contains real diamond powder!) and the Dragon’s Blood collection I couldn’t wait to see what they were like.

Rodial makeupdragon's blood hyaluronic moisturiser Pink Diamond MaskRodial review Super acids xtreme after-party scrub dragon's blood hyaluronic maskRodial sculpting brush

Super Acids X-Treme After-Party Scrub

I wasn’t expecting anything special from this exfoliator, I thought it would be just like any other. And my first impression was that it was no different to other brands I have used. That was until I found my skin was still soft and smooth a couple of hours later. After exfoliating I find my skin dries out quite quickly and I need to moisturise regularly. This exfoliator contains Vitamin E which is probably why it leaves your skin fresh and moisturised for longer than most others.

Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Collection

I was excited to try the Dragon’s Blood mask and moisturiser, and it was probably the two products that intrigued me the most. What I liked about the moisturiser was that it didn’t leave my face feeling or looking greasy. It had a kind of matte feel to it which is good for me as I have combination skin. As for the plumping effect the product promises, I’m not so sure. I didn’t visibly notice my skin appearing more plump but perhaps it didn’t need it?! I felt the same about the mask but they are still really nice products and might work better on more mature skin.

Instaglam Compact Contouring Powder and Sculpting Brush

I’ve talked about the importance of good makeup brushes in my Zoeva post and this sculpting brush does not disappoint. It is super soft and really easy to clean. Plus I love matte black brushes! The contouring powder is really finely milled so takes a bit of building up if you want a really defined look. But it is perfect for everyday use to give your face dimension and the compact is handy to carry in your handbag.

 

Love Me Beauty

If you haven’t tried beautyboxes before but you’d like to give it a go, I would really recommend opting for the Love Me Beauty boxes. Not only do you get really great brands like Rodial, Nails Inc and Tangle Teezer, but it is tailored specifically for you.

Zoeva Nude SpectrumZoeva blusherZoeva brushesNude Spectrum PaletteZoeva brush setZoeva review

A couple of weeks ago I received some goodies from Zoeva in the post. It’s probably the most excited I have ever been about a delivery! I’ve read all the reviews and seen so many bloggers using Zoeva’s brushes and make up, I had to see what the hype was about. So here’s my verdict..

Luxe Prime Brush Set

Before I get in to the real detail about this Zoeva brush set I must pledge my allegiance to the Real Technique brushes which I have been using for years. It was these brushes that taught me the importance of good tools for flawless makeup and, what’s more, they are very affordable. Having said this, my eye brushes from Real Techniques have taken a battering and I thought it was about time to try something new.

The first thing I must mention about the Luxe Prime Set is the softness of the brushes which makes them a dream to blend with. They are made from natural and synthetic bristles which means they are durable with the right care. My favourite brushes are the 234 Smoky Shader brush and the 317 Winged Liner brush. Any brush that blends eyeshadow well will always be a champion for me because it is the key to creating so many eye makeup looks. I also like to change my eye liner brush regularly otherwise the bristles start to separate and I can’t achieve a clean line.

Nude Spectrum Palette

Sometimes I open this palette just to look at the colours. Weird, I know but they look too good to use! There is a mix of matte, satin and shimmer textures in all the shades of brown you could imagine. This is my absolute dream palette as I always wear browns and neutral eyeshadow. My usual eyeshadow go-to is Mac because I’ve found they have a really good pigment with little fallout. Although some of the satin shades aren’t quite as pigmented, the rest of the palette seems to match up to Mac in my opinion. And I really love having the shade options all in one place rather than digging around in my dressing table for individuals.

Luxe Colour Blush

The shade that I am using is called Burning Up. Blush is the one part of makeup I always struggle with. I never know if the colour is right or whether blush on top of contour is too much. But on those days when minimal makeup will do I will be reaching for this product to add subtle dimension to my face.

Percy & Reed products

I’ve been so excited to write this post, not only to launch the beauty section of the blog, but to tell you guys about a range of hair products that really work. I get asked so many questions nearly every day about what I use on my hair and how I maintain it. But I can never really answer comprehensively because I haven’t found any products worth recommending. Which is saying something because I’ve tried so many over the years! I have naturally straight, long, thick hair so holding any kind of hairstyle for more than a few hours is a challenge. Before long my hair is hanging limp and flat around my face as if I hadn’t styled it. One thing I always wish for is lots of volume but a bouncy blow-dry seemed an unattainable dream for me. That is until I discovered Percy & Reed.

Percy & Reed in bathroom Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse with brush Percy & Reed sink

Being a salon brand, Percy & Reed may be slightly dearer than a highstreet brand but it is more than justified by the finish of the products, both aesthetically and practically. I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging, especially if it is monochrome and this one ticks the box! The simplistic bottles and cute illustrations make these products the type you would be proud to display in your bathroom.

Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational Volumising No Oil, Oil (For Thick Hair)

Some of you may have seen me write about this product in my handbag musthaves post. I got my hands on a sample of the product from June’s edit of ELLE magazine. The first time I used it I wasn’t really expecting much and I certainly wasn’t expecting the amazing results it gave me. My hair was sumptuously smooth and shiny all the way through after just one use, something that it hasn’t been for a long time! The Oil even hydrated the ends of my hair which tend to get dry and brittle which is an added bonus. After a bit of research I found out that the Oil contains vitamin B5 which protects against heat, so its perfect to use pre blow-dry. The No Oil, Oil part is true too, there was no greasy residue left after I used the product which gave me the confidence to use the Oil near my roots when I next washed my hair to add that extra bit of volume.

No Oil Oil hands

How to use:

Pump 2-3 drops in to the palm of your hand.

Warm the product up by rubbing palms together.

Run fingers from the root to the tips of damp hair.

Dry hair as normal.

Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse

The first thing that struck me about this Mousse is the texture of my hair after I used it. It wasn’t sticky or crusty like so many of the other brands I’ve tried. It left my hair feeling weightless and, as the label says, truly bouncy! I was surprised at this because I used the Mousse in conjunction with the No Oil, Oil and thought the combination of the products may be too heavy and weigh my hair down. I used a comb to distribute the mousse evenly through my hair, although you can also use your fingers. The feel of the Mousse is more creamy than frothy which makes it feel like you’re using a luxury treatment on your hair, not a styling product. I will definitely be incorporating this product in to my hair care routine on the days when I feel like I need that extra boost or a bit of a pamper!

Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse in hand

How to use:

Spray a golf ball sized amount of mousse in to the palm of your hand.

Dip a comb in to the mousse and run through the lengths of your hair. Alternatively, you can use your fingers.

Dry hair like normal.
