Product Review: Rimmel London Products


Through Influenster I've had the opportunity to test out some Rimmel London Products. They sent me over Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover and Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner. Over the last month I've had a chance to try them out and here is what I thought...

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
I have never really been an eye makeup remover girl. I just like to wash my makeup off with my facial cleanser in the shower. My makeup comes off with this method but that is mainly because I do not usually use waterproof makeup. That is where the Gentle Eye Makeup Remover comes into play. The liner they sent would not come off with my regular makeup remover! However, their remover takes it off like it ain't no thang! I also notice that the formula isn't oily like a popular makeup counter remover that my mom likes. I have oily eyelids so extra oil is unwanted.

I found another use for the makeup remover that may be odd...lipstick removal. I am a lover of red and fuchsia lipsticks. These can linger on my lips at times but not when I swiped them with the remover. It came right off! In the end, I may give this remover to my mom because she regularly uses and repurchases that makeup counter brand I mentioned.




Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Khol Kajal Eyeliner
This liner right here? This LI-NER right HERE! To give it to you plain it is creamy and dark. I found that I liked it best drawn on my lids then smudged with a little color in my crease. It looked natural and was waterproof. I tried this all around my eyes but it was just too intense for me. I can be seen wearing it in the end of my Vlogmas 2014: Week 3 video and the middle of the vlogmas after that. Pictures above.

Video: When People Ask About Your Hair

I will admit that if you approach me in real life and ask me about my hair, I will stand there with my mouth open. It's not that I don't know my own hair routine, it's just that I have a million things racing through my mind.

I'm thinking about all of the different products I use. I'm pondering the techniques I incorporate in my regimen. I'm also thinking "what are they looking at" as my hair is hardly ever fresh when I get stopped. I usually just end up plugging my blog. I've got to get a quick response together.

Wash Day: Twist and Trim

What The Kink - First Wash Day of 15What The Kink - First Wash Day of 15

 I'm late posting about it but I kicked off this new year with a treatment and a set of twists!

[1] Prepoo
I started off with the Cherry Lola Treatment. The treatment is said to strengthen the hair and decrease frizz. I hadn't done one in several months and figured it was about time. I'm going to try to do them monthly.

[2] Deep Condition
After rinsing out my prepoo I coated my hair in my precious Tressemme Naturals conditioner (review here). Since I know how much of a task twisting can be I slept in the deep conditioner so that I could do the next step in the morning. 

[3] Detangle
The next morning I detangled my hair under running water then added back more of the conditioner to leave in.

[4] Style & Trim
I sealed each conditioned section with olive oil then proceeded to do medium sized twists. Um...they took forever! As I twisted I also took ~1/4th" off of each twist.

This routine will probably be the name of the game at the beginning of each month--minus the trim!
