Amazing Shampoo For Dry/Itchy Scalp – Dead Sea Spa Magik Mineral Shampoo

It may not be very hot or glamorous to admit but I am quite prone to an itchy scalp and a case of dandruff. At least, I was until I started using this Dead Sea Spa Magik Mineral Shampoo! It has not given me complete immunity but I definitely think it has helped to improve my scalp condition and itchiness. I’m now onto my second bottle!

When I was looking for a shampoo I was looking out for formulas aimed at dry/itchy scalps, that weren’t drying and that didn’t contain SLS. This fit the bill so I went for it and I struck gold! It does everything I wanted and is so gentle and smells great. When I bought my first bottle I was just sat sniffing it every few minutes – I can’t really describe it but I think it smells very spa-like! I feel like my scalp is inevitably going to get a bit itchy between washes considering I wash my hair every 4-5 days, which is quite a while, however I do think this has dramatically reduced the feelings of itchiness and has made my scalp a lot happier. The product itself is a pale blue colour and lathers up nicely – I personally find that one wash is enough and I don’t need to repeat. The bottle lasted me ages as it’s a very generous size compared to the standard 200/250ml.

If you’d like to read more about my hair care routine I did a post on it a while ago which you can read here. Some of the products may have changed but the general routine is still the same.

I bought this product from Look Fantastic (£8.50) where you can often get a 15-20% discount. 😉

Naturisimo Beauty Haul

In my quest to lead a more healthy lifestyle, I want to gradually introduce more and more natural products into my beauty regime. Naturisimo.com is such a great website that makes doing that so easy; this was the first time I used the site and I got great value for money and super quick delivery.

Jason Normalizing Tea Tree Treatment Shampoo £6.99

Shampoo is an easy thing to swap for a more natural alternative. I wash my hair roughly every 4 days and towards day 3-4 my hair starts to get pretty itchy so I thought a tea tree shampoo might do my scalp some good and keep the itchiness at bay. I haven’t tried this yet but the bottle is huuuge so let’s hope I like it as it’s going to last me ages.

A’kin Macadamia & Wheat Conditioner for Dry Hair £8.90

My hair’s main concern is dryness so I always go for conditioners aimed at dry/damaged hair. I’ve used this once and it was a thinner consistency than I’m used to however it was very nourishing and it just felt…natural, which was great! Unfortunately for someone like me who uses lots of conditioner every time I wash my hair, this lil bottle will not last me long 🙁 I reckon 3 applications, 4 if I’m lucky.

Lily Lolo Eyeliner Pencil £6.99

My super sensitive eyes were being a pain in the ass and watering sooo much every day so I was trying to figure out what was causing it. I thought a new natural eyeliner wouldn’t hurt so I got this one which is very nice and black! However I later established that the culprit was my moisturiser (Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser) which I have now had to stop using 🙁

Odylique Avocado 24 Hour Replenishing Cream £22

The next three purchases were all intended to combat my dehydrated feeling skin. The moisturiser I was using at night prior to this just wasn’t cutting it so I wanted to buy a new one. As I use this at night, I can’t say what it’s like under makeup. My assumption would be not great as it’s quite rich and oily. As a night cream thought I have been loving it, in conjunction with the other products I bought (below). I no longer wake up with a tight feeling face. I like that it’s in a pump as it’s much more hygienic than all the moisturisers around that are in tubs. It does have a bit of a funky smell but that doesn’t really bother me as I view it as demonstrating how beautiful and natural it is!

Laidbare From Dusk Till Dawn Vitamin C Serum

I know how beneficial Vitamin C can be for skin so when I saw this for an awesome price along with some other great ingredients, I just had to try it! I’ve only used it a couple of times as I have been using the Antipodes one (see below) more, but it seems good. It’s a very oily formula which surprised me when I first pressed the pump as I was expecting something more creamy! The packaging is basic but good, however I have already cracked the plastic lid that protects the pump lol. I’ll give it a proper trial run once I’ve done likewise with the Antipodes one.

Antipodes Joyous Night Replenish Serum £24.99

Last but not least I picked up this similarly oily serum. It comes in a pipette bottle and is a real pleasure to use. Both these serums are great for a facial massage whenever you want to treat yourself to one. I wanted to try an Antipodes serum after enjoying using their Manuka Honey Mask so much (which I spoke about a bit here). Naturismo are selling this one for such a good price too, £24.99, whereas the RRP is £38.99! That pulled me in probably more than it should of haha. Overall though, this in conjunction with the moisturiser has really helped get rid of that feeling of dehydration.

Do you have any natural products that you swear by?
