Product of the month/Not the product of the month Dec-Jan

I’m late with this, this time round. What with all the excitement, I forgot to do this post this month. But here it is.

Product of the month goes to – Moa The Green Balm.

I got it from a Joliebox a few months ago and was skeptical, especially as the tub is so small. But I used it on my face when I had skin problems, or when a spot was 70% healed and needed that last little boost. It’s really good and speeds up the healing process so much. When I was in Paris I forgot to take it with me and I really really missed it. The only downside to it is that it’s slightly greasy, so I have to make sure I use it at night, or at times when I don’t have to put makeup on top of it.

You can buy The Green Balm from Moa’s website HERE.

Not the product of the month goes to – Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray.

I bought this in Sephora as I’d heard of the brand but didn’t even know where to start with what I should try out from them. All of their products are ridiculously expensive – I don’t think I saw anything less than 20, maybe 25 euros – and so I expected a lot from them. As it was Sephora, a salesman came round to bug me and I asked him what he’d recommend for my thin, boring hair. He suggested this spray (but before he made his decision he asked me – rather curiously – “do you do lots of brushing with your hair?”) He said that it’s not only a thickening spray but also a protection spray, too. I’ve been using it to blowdry my hair with for about 3 weeks now, and I can say it’s made no noticeable difference. As a protection spray, it’s hard to judge how well it works, but I have a much cheaper spray that does that, so I was covered in that area.

I’m not taking it away on holiday with me, so maybe I’ll miss it and realise that it really was making a difference, but to be honest, I doubt it. 25 euros for a medium bottle of spray and I expect a lot, lot more.

Have you tried either of these products? I’d love to hear your opinions!
