Pantene has introduced a new era of shampoos with Anti-Oxidant technology that helps reduce the daily oxidative damage that all hair faces. Although there are many sources of oxidants – from environmental oxidant (e.g. UV light), or chemical treatments such as peroxides – this technology stems from the discovery that this oxidative process is amplified by an unsuspected source, copper, found in everyone’s wash water. This technology works to help preserve the health of hair, as it targets, captures and helps to neutralize excessive copper impurities in hair. Reducing copper helps prevent the formation of free radicals, and reduces the fracture and erosion of hair’s vital proteins.

I’ve tested Pantene Pro-V Intensive Repair products for two weeks, and you can see the results in the photos.

I really like the new formula of the shampoo. It’s creamy, so it doesn’t dry out the hair, and it cleans the scalp really well; better than some common drugstore shampoos.

The formula of the Intensive Repair conditioner has also changed. I’ve used the conditioner as well, because it preserves the keratin, so the two of them have been responsible for the shine and the healthier look of my hair.

However, the formula of the conditioner is not strong enough for complete care of my hair. My hair is bleached, so it’s really dry and it needs stronger treatments, such as 2 Minutes Intensive Repair Masque from the same collection. Two years ago, I reviewed it and I can still say that this is one of the best drugstore hair masks. It has changed its look (the packaging is now white and gold), but its quality is the same. After use, my hair is really soft and smooth.

Each eyeliner comes in a box with a brush. It is stated that the texture of these eyeliners is long-lasting and that, once applied on the eyelids, can hold up to 24 h. I have been using them these days and, after a proper testing, I will review them and show you the swatches.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Blonde & Large Synthetic Duo Brush #12

I recently bought these two products, so I have not used them much, but I think I finally found the perfect products for my eyebrows. Dipbrow Pomade is creamy, water-resistant and highly pigmented, and the brush is a right tool for its application. Bought them at Net-a-Porter.

Net weight: 100 ml | 3.38 oz.
Price: £24.95 | $39.00



My opinion

So, the mask is designed to repair damaged, dry or color-treated hair. Had to be left onto wet hair for 5 minutes and then rinsed. The oil has to be put on the damp hair and there is no need to rinse off. I got many luxury samples and used them for some time. I used them together, so this is a review of combination of both products.

After application, my hair looked really shiny and healthy. It wasn’t very soft, but it was very smooth and slick; felt stronger and I totally liked that. I loved the scent of the products too, because it’s really nice and it stays on the hair for some time.

The mask have to be left on hair for 5 minutes which for me is too long. I prefer faster treatments. But, I waited, as recommended, and followed with oil and what I got is salon looking hair, so I was very satisfied with the result.

I’ve already posted a photo of my hair that shows the result I got with Argan Dew products – HERE it is (scroll down to the end of the post).

I adore the scent of these products! They are effective as well: the scrub leaves the skin very smooth and the milk provides a velvety soft skin. Because of the scent and texture, these products are right choice for cooler days.

Nov 202013

L’Oréal Professionnel released Pro-Keratin Refill line on the market – the line that returns hair keratin and provides protection.

Hair is made up of 85% keratin which gives shine, flexibility and strength to the hair. Natural keratin is damaged and lost overtime. Pro-Keratin Refill is a professional haircare range that targets damaged and weak hair caused by mechanical, chemical and environmental aggressors and leaves hair feeling 70% stronger.


My hair is bleached, so it needs adequate care. With constant use of the right products, which usually means professional products, my hair stays in great condition and, despite the bleach, it is always very strong and thick. Before I started using Pro-Keratin Refill products, I had tested some drugstore hair products for the purpose of reviews, and it felt so good to return to the professional ones.


From Pro-Keratin Refill line I tried correcting care shampoo and masque for damaged hair.

The shampoo gives deeply cleaned hair. I noticed that my scalp stays cleaner slightly longer compared with some drugstore shampoos. In combination with the masque, the hair becomes soft, supple and shiny. These products restore hair and the masque itself protects it from outside influences. I’m really thrilled with the effect and every time after using it I am pleasantly surprised with the look of my hair. It is extremely strong, yet silky. It looks really healthy.

Although I always use oils for finishing touch in order to get a salon look, I have to mention that I sometimes had skipped this step and my hair still looked very shiny and sleek. Of course, oil is always a great idea for a bit of magic. I recommend Mythic Oil which I reviewed here.


I am completely amazed with these products! They are really superb, perfect for my hair and I can already tell you that they will be on my 2013 best products list. :)


L'Oréal Professionnel Pro Keratin Refill shampoo & masque



  • shampoo (250 ml/8.45 fl. oz.) – £10.85 (approx. $17.50)
  • masque (200 ml/6.7 fl. oz.) – £14.35 (approx. $23.10)
