Ouai Treatment Masque

Like my skin, hands, body and feet, a hair masque is an absolute essential in my life and at least once every month I use a hair mask on my hair. The most recent addition to my stash comes from Ouai, a brand I have got to know pretty well and just absolutely love. This isn't a new masque, it has just been re-packaged from a sachet to a tube, so it is much easier to use, less messy but just as brilliant.
Ouai Treatment Masque in a Tube
Described as being a restorative healing mask that’s formulated to repair damage in minutes, leaving strands incredibly soft and smooth after just one treatment. Made with Artichoke Leaf Extract to seal the cuticle and protect hair from future damage, there is also the use of Tamarind Seed Extract which infuses the hair with a moisture barrier, making it velvety-soft before Ouai's own Smart Technology Complex infuses hair with essential Amino Acids and Keratin to help strengthen and nourish each follicle while shielding against environmental aggressors.

What I absolutely love about this mask is that you only need to use it for 5-10 minutes each time.  After washing your hair, squeeze out excess water and then apply the mask, running it through your hair with fingers or a wide tooth comb to ensure it has been dispersed equally.  Then once the time is up, simply wash out.

What I absolutely love about this hair masque is how soft and smooth it leaves my hair feeling after using not to mention that just walked out of the salon glossy look.  As with all of Ouai's products, they have a distinct scent and this masque smells just the same as the limited edition Ouai Melrose Place Eau de Parfum (review here) and it smells delightfully of  Rose, Bergamot, Lychee, Cedar-wood, and White Musk. This scent really makes my hair smell incredible and it is one that lasts a good few days.

If you are in need of a new hair masque and want something that does a little more than leave your hair feeling nice, you need the Ouai Treatment Masque. Priced at £25 you can find this scrub and the rest of the Ouai collection here.

Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Body Mist

One of my favourite candles is Jasmine Dreams by Rituals and it was the first product I had ever used from the brand. Fast forward a few years and I have used a few products (here and here) and the most recent to my collection is The Ritual of Ayurveda Body Mist.

Ayurveda originated more than 5000 years ago in India. This philosophy is based on restoring inner harmony through the old practice of cleansing and nurturing your body and soul. The Ritual of Ayurveda has been designed to support this philosophy and offers a collection of luxury home and body care products that help balance your body, mind and soul.

The Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Body Mist is described as being a rejuvenating spritz that can be used to refresh skin or perfume linens. It is infused with the delicate fragrance of both Indian Rose and Himalaya Honey which work with Sweet Almond Oil.
  • Indian Rose - As a universal symbol of purity and love, the sweet and delicate aroma of the rose is said to evoke positive feelings. Its aroma also has soothing properties.
  • Sweet Almond Oil - an ancient Ayurvedic ingredient that restores the skin's moisture balance.
  • Himalaya Honey - Himalaya Honey has been known for its medicinal properties for a long time now and it has a special softening and moisturising effect on the skin. Himalaya Honey is harvested from the virgin forests in the Himalayan mountains, the most natural environment imaginable, and provides essential nutrients and vitamins.
On the mist is spritzed, those delicate aromas come to life and creates such a refreshing scent, on the skin it moisturises and nourishes and leaves a trace behind, on Linen, again the mist settles to create a subtle scent that lingers for a good few days.  For me, this mist works best once it has settled, the aroma of Indian Rose is most definitely the dominant scent until it dries down to allow the Himalaya Honey to add a delicate sweetness and it is just a beautiful scent.

Alongside the Body Mist, the Ritual of Ayurveda also has a candle, foaming shower gel, hair mist, Shower Oil, Dry Oil and much more (here).  This Body mist is priced at £16.50 and is available from places such as LookFantastic and John Lewis (aff links)
