Review of Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream

Sunday, 24 August 2014
I wont lie, when the Daisy Dream landed on my door step I could feel my heart pounding out of my chest and my head falling into a day dream. This right here in my little hands is the first ever Marc Jacobs fragrance that I have EVER owned, and was a BIG deal. I was so excited to rip the plastic off the box and open this fragrance up to let me nose go into a fragrance coma.

As soon as I saw the design of this new release I instantly thought Spring and fell in love. With Spring on the creep and even upon us already in terms of weather here in Melbourne, this is a perfectly fitting fragrance.  This for me would have to be the best of all the Marc Jacob’s releases.
Even though I have never owned a Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrance I have with every release ducked down to Myer just to have a whiff. And the Daisy Dream for me is the best smelling fragrance to have been released. I would even take it as far to say that both this fragrance and the original Michael Kors by Michael Kors are my two favourite fragrances off all time!

The Daisy Dream comes in three sizes , which include:
30ML - $60 (LIMITED EDITION)

50ML - $90

100ML - $120
.
So it is certainly affordable and worth every little scent you spend. I will throw a top in the wash, which has had Daisy Dream sprayed on it and I can still smell the scent linger- which is VERY long lasting.
For me the design is all about Spring and reminds me of my childhood, when we used to live in the country and drive past fields full of daisy’s and even created daisy chains for our head.
ELEGANTLY CRAFTED, THE CURVED SHOULDERS ARE DRESSED WITH A SWEETLY EMBELLISHED DAISY DETAIL THAT CREATES AN AIRY, LACE- LIKE EFFECT. THE CLEAR GLASS REVEALS THE SKY BLUE HUE OF THE FRAGRANCE. THE BOTTLE IS TOPPED OFF WITH A SILVER CAP ADORNED WITH DAISY ACCENTS.



I couldn’t exactly pin point the one scent that comes to mind when applying this fragrance to my skin as there are so many levels to this fragrance and one minute I will be smelling berries and the next there will be a hint of jasmine and even coconut in there.  So with a little look over the complexity of this fragrance I found out why my nose my have become a little overwhelmed with trying to pin point one scent.

LIGHT AND AIRY, DAISY DREAM IS BOTH FLORAL AND FRUITY. THE FRAGRANCE CAPTIVATES WITH DELECTABLE TOP NOTES OF BLACKBERRY, FRESH GRAPEFRUIT AND SUCCULENT PEAR. THE HEART IMPARTS A RICH, FEMININE JASMINE, NOTES OF LYCHEE AND BLUE WISTERIA. A DREAMY DRYDOWN OF WHITE WOODS, MUSKS AND COCONUT WATER.
TOP: BLACKBERRY, GRAPEFRUIT, PEAR
HEART: JASMINE, LYCHEE, BLUE WISTERIA
BASE: WHITE WOODS, MUSKS, COCONUT WATER
Also available in the collection, (which I plant to create a little Daisy Dream family on my vanity) are the following,
LUMINOUS BODY LOTION
150ML - $40
UPLIFTING SHOWER GEL
150ML - $30 (LIMITED EDITION)
This fragrance became available from Myer and David Jones on the 3rd Of August which means if you want to get your hot little hands on the collection, you can head in to your nearest store and pick some up. You can also get the range from SELECTED pharmacies from the 31st of August so it is best you  call FOR STOCKISTS. PLEASE CALL 1800 812 663.


I would not hesitate with this fragrance and would encourage all you ladies to try it out J
What would have to be your favourite Marc Jacobs fragrance to ever be release?

ESSENSITY from Schwarzkopf Professional REVIEW



Pssst wanna know the secret behind Megan Fox’s amazing locks?
Look no further than the range that hairdresser to Megan Fox, Amber Dawn, trusts to colour her red-carpet ready locks -  ESSENSITY from Schwarzkopf Professional! With no artificial fragrances, silicones, sulfates*, parabens paraffin or mineral oils, Schwarzkopf Professional’s Essensity range has been reinvigorated for 2014 to not only prolong your colour, but to give your hair four times more care and smoothness. The new care range supports the Essensity in-salon colour range, and if it’s good enough for Megan Fox, it’s good enough for me.
Megan Fox is one of my Chick Crushes and ALWAYS has her hair in immaculate condition- and I am beginning to think she just wakes up in the morning looking that amazing (haha).
 

The main reason I fell in love with this range is not due to the fact Megan Fox’s hair dresser trusts these products with her hair (although it comes close), but due to the fact that it comes with a committed “free from” philosophy and using natural and organic ingredients such as Pomegranate and Aloe Vera together with fair-trade Marula oil, the Essensity range effectively replaces the lost lipids of the hair and seals the cuticle for a high care, and extreme anti-fade colour protection.
 
Available in two categories, Color & Repair and Color & Moisture, the range is designed to take care of coloured and damaged hair, naturally. The Essensity Color & Repair range delivers intensive care for damaged, porous coloured hair, and the Essensity Color & Moisture products provide deep moisture for normal to dry coloured hair. In addition, all care products are sulfate free, and use only 100% natural fragrance - fragrance that has been specially blended for the range and based on the biggest international natural fragrance trends.  To begin with I was not a massive fan on the scent as I am a girl that loves her hair smelling amazing all the way up until the next wash. I wouldn’t say the smell is unpleasant, but its not strong and smells a lot like green tea. Buttttt having said that after using the products on my hair, I would much prefer the way my hair was left feeling then the way it smells.
 
With hints of Mediterranean flowers and bursts of citrus, discover a beautiful and essential hair care solution and give your hair real colour protection, high shine and pure softness - the natural way.
 
Unfortunately you will not be able to get your mits on this product until September, but it is very much worth the wait.
 
 
 
 
ESSENSITY Color & Moisture: care for colored normal to dry hair
Using Marula oil, green tea and organic aloe vera, products in the Color & Moisture range provide deep moisture as well as effective color protection.
 
 
Color & Moisture Sulfate-free Shampoo and Conditioner 200ml and 250ml / RRP $29.95
The PEG and sulfate-free formula cleanses normal to dry hair and seals the cuticle, adding moisture to the hair and making it soft and manageable. 

The rinse-out conditioner restores the hair’s lost lipids. The rich, creamy, and moisturising formula of the rinse out conditioner is rapidly absorbed by the cuticle to replace lost lipids and smooth hair without weighing it down. 

For me this combo took a little to warm up to as I am all about yummy smelling hair and having only natural additives I felt there was no strong scent or even any scent at all once washing your hair. And I would have pictured Megan Fox walking by and getting a waft of amazing smelling hair. But after using this 3 times and seeing how much my hair appreciated the lack of chemicals I thought I would much prefer to sacrifice smell for lush locks.
 
 
Color & Moisture Intense Treatment 200ml / RRP $29.95
This deep-acting intense hair mask adds moisture to normal and dry hair, and restores softness and smoothness even to rough, brittle and untameable hair. 

And just when I thought using the conditioner could not have made my hair feel any better, this little bad boy knocks it out of the ball park. I LOVE this stuff and could almost swear by it now, I have never loved running my fingers through my hair as much as when I use this. There is one little thing I would point out, it to not use this more then once a week as your hair WILL become oily- trust me I learnt the hard way with this one. I thought maybe if I used it with every wash then my hair would be super silky and healthy, but I was mistaken- the intense treatment IS intense! 
 
Color & Moisture Spray Conditioner  200ml / RRP $29.95
The leave-in conditioner coats each strand without weighing the hair down. It forms a protective shield against harmful external influences and prevents colour from fading.

The Spray conditioner also makes for a great detangler when brushing your hair, so I found out! This is a light formula and will not weight your hair down like other out on the market, well it didn't for me anyway! 

I am not sure if it was the overload on the essensity product or not though, but after a week and a little I noticed I was getting dry skin on my head, or dandruff but I am not sure what it was due to. 
 
For myself I used the shampoo twice as my hair tends to get quite oily now with gym, then followed with some conditioner. I left this in my hair until I finished washing my body and then rinsed. I then applied the intense treatment, threw my hair in a bun and continued to shave my legs and whatnot and rinsed this out (about 5 minutes).
Once I had towel dried my hair I used 4 sprays of the moisture spray conditioner and then blow dried my hair, I was done and my hair has never felt as it did that night.

L'Oreal Monthly Love- August

Dove Invisible Dry REVIEW

One thing I hate more then being a women that has to spend hours if not more then a day to get ready and prepare herself for a night out is the moment you slip on that little black dress and you discover the white tracks down a part of the dress thanks to your stupid deodorant. I have even avoided putting it on until I am dressed and then maneuver my way in and try to spray lightly, but even then I can be left with white rings, so it is like playing Russian roulette.
 
So when I saw the new invisible dry anti-white marks deodorant by DOVE, I knew this is something worth trying. Now it does say on the can that it has been tested on 100 colours, but I had to do some lab work myself. I sprayed the deodorant on a black top, red top and blue top which all tend to be my problem colours. To my surprise not a single mark was left at all, nothing, zilch, ZERO!!!
 
Dove Invisible Dry Aerosol RRP $5.35

Also available in: Dove Invisible Roll On RRP $3.89

I was sent the dry aerosol to use as I really am not a fan on roll on deodorants and cannot stand the wet sloppy feeling of them not to mention the thought of germs and sweat contaminating the roley bit haha. 
 

I love the fragrance of this deodorant as it is so elegant and doesn’t choke me at gym like some others do. Whilst it doesn’t leave any marks on clothes, it contains all the goodness of Dove inclusing its unique ¼ mousturising cream, which also helps skin repair itself from the damage caused by shaving.
 
What other reasons do you need for trying this baby out?
