CocoaLocks Review (english)

Hey everybody,

Today I’m going to review the product you see in the title of this post.

First of all I want to put a little disclaimer out there: I was kindly sent this product for free by the brand to try it out BUT I WAS NOT PAID to write a review!! This is my very honest opinion about it and what I noticed by using this week after week!

That been said we can start talking about it shall we?

I actually consider this a beauty product ever though we can see it as a supplement because it supposed to make your hair, thicker, stronger, shinier and longer in weeks. I’ve been using this product for a little bit more than 2 weeks now and I’ve definitely noticed a improvment in how my hair looks and feel.

For example when they are a bit dirty (sorry, gross I know) they are not as dirty as they used to be, they’re less greasy and I have less flyaways, my scalp is not as itchy anymore and not as dry anymore. I even noticed I am less prone to dandruff which was a huge deal to me and I also was a bit concern about it! So in general I see my hair healthier, stronger and shinier!

As far as the length of my hair I can already see that they are a bit longer in comparison to when I cut it on the 6th of December.

I choose to receive the Hot Chocolate one and there’s als a milkshake one. I choose the first because I feel it was more appropriate with the cold weather now and it seriously tastes amazing. It is not overly sweet even thought the first ingredient is sugar and you can adjust the calories if you want by adding hot water or milk or a non-dairy milk to your preference (I love coconut and rice milk it tastes soooo good with the hot chocolate mixture).

Let’s talk about the ingredients for a second:

Sugar, sweet whey powder(milk) , fat-reduced cocoa powder 14.5%, skimmed-milk powder, biotin, folic acid, selenium enriched yeast, zinc sulphate, salt, thickener (E 466), anti-caking agent (E 551), flavouring.

As you can see from the list of ingredients we have all the active ones to improove the health and the look of your hair like biotin, folic acid, selenium and zinc. These are good not only for your hair but also for your nails and skin, and I have indeed noticed that my skin is less dry especially on my hands and my lips!

So not only this product tastes amazing but I am noticing the results! I really recommend it if you have my same problems or if you feel that your hair has the need to be repaired mainly because of the continuous changes in temperature of the last periods.

Of course for best results I always recommend to incorporate more greens and good fatty acids (for examples those contained into almonds or nuts or avocado without exaggerating) into your everyday lifestyle or diet (which is always a good idea if your are not allergic to them!!!) and to drink your water every single day cause when your body is hydrated, your health will also be affected positively.

It is also very important to keep your hair clean buy massaging gently your shampoo into your scalp for at least one minute every time you wash it. My hairstylist said to me that this tendency to say that you do not have to wash your hair more than twice a week is wrong! If cleansing occurs with the right products for your hair type nothing bad happens to the health of the scalp, indeed!

And if you live in a very cold climate please wear some kind of hat 😉

Let me know if you have tried the product and if you find that it works for you, I am truly curious to have feedbacks from you!

xo xo Debora!

Recensione scrub labbra Frank Body

Ciao a tutti oggi voglio parlarvi di un prodotto che ho scoperto di recente da Sephora spinta da folle curiosità dopo aver sentito parlare del marchio in questione a destra e a manca e anche perché c’era il 20% su tutti i prodotti Sephora ( il giorno della mia visita in negozio era il Black Friday… e come potevo non approfittarne? Ho preso anche altre cose ovviamente ma ve ne parlerò in post separati).

Parlo come avrete capito dal titolo dello scrub labbra Frank Body. Con la sua ironia dolceamara questo marchio è nato 5 anni fa dall’idea di un gruppo di amici in un coffeeshop americano.

Lovely, right? Io penso che sia un’idea fantastica, ironica, di chi non si prende troppo sul serio ma prende molto seriamente la bellezza della pelle e la possibilità di renderla spendente e luminosa senza utilizzare ingredienti troppo aggressivi o non naturali.

Dato che l’idea è nata in un coffeeshop, la scelta più logica e anche la più divertente, era quella di creare dei prodotti (all’inizio solo scrub) a base di chicchi macinati di caffè. 

Lo scrub labbra infatti sa un profumo buonissimo di caffè appena macinato (non so francamente come facciano a mantenere inalterata una fragranza simile ma adoroooo!). Il “potere scrubbante” è come piace a me: non troppo aggressivo sulle labbra ma nemmeno troppo blando da risultare inefficace per togliere tutte le pellicine fastidiose che si formano sulle labbra soprattutto a causa del freddo attuale, inoltre ha la giusta quantità di olii per idratare le labbra in modo tale che non risultino secche dopo lo scrub. Oltre al caffè è presente anche una buona dose di zucchero che lo rende piacevolissimo anche al gusto qualora ve ne dovesse finire un po’ in bocca (e le papille ringraziano!). 

Che dire di più di questo scrub? A beh certo il prezzo! E’ 11,90€ per 15 ml di prodotto, direi che li vale tutti ma se avete lo sconto… usatelo! 😉
