Envy Professional hair care

Published August 8, 2017 by Bizzimummy

I put my hair through a lot, and have done so for many years. It’s been bleached, coloured, highlighted, low-lighted, permed, blow dried, straightened and had extensions in. So when it comes to products for my hair, I don’t mind paying that little bit extra for a product that claims to help repair damage and give it an overall better condition.

Envy products are used by hairdressers as well as being sold to people like myself who want the best for their hair. Salon products can sometimes be hard to find without buying them in the actual salon after having your hair done.

They are recognisable by distinct black and green containers just like this.

Envy hair products contain silk proteins which help to moisturise, smooth and gloss hair. And Keratin which puts balance and moisturiser back into the hair. I have found that the majority of “better” hair products do contain keratin (the ones that actually work).

I have been regularly using three Envy products.

  • Gentle cleansing shampoo
  • Dual fix 12
  • Gentle detangling conditioner

These products smell absolutely amazing. I can’t be too sure exactly what the lovely scent is, but it smells sweet and fruity, possibly mango but it’s really lovely. I was really surprised at just how nice they are.

The shampoo gets applied the same as any other. I usually leave on for about 5 minutes max.

The Dual fix 12 is a totally new product to me. It’s like an inbetween treatment; after shampoo but before conditioner. This comes out like a mousse and gets left on for one minute. This is the main repair product and boasts an amazing 12 benefits for the hair. 

  • 1 Amazing shine 
  • 2 Helps to repair damage 
  • 3 Weightless silk effect
  • 4 Easier detangling 
  • 5 Helps to rehydrate hair 
  • 6 Improves styling and blow dry results
  • 7 Thicker, fuller feel
  • 8 Helps Reduce Frizz
  • 9 Rejuvenates tired colour 
  • 10 Hair feels stronger 
  • 11 Reduces the appearance of split ends 
  • 12 Lasts for weeks 

This product can also be used as a more intense treatment on dry hair. Full instructions on the back of the bottle. 

The Conditioner is a lovely thick lush cream. Even whilst wet I could feel my hair becoming smoother, detangled and overall easier to manage.


And after a quick blow dry, my hair feels lovely, soft, detangled, manageable and refreshed. It even seems to be growing a little better too.

As these are professional hair products which are used in salons, it does mean they cost slightly more than what someone would pay for a regular shampoo or conditioner from shops. The shampoo and conditioner both costing £14.95 each and the Dual fix slightly more at £19.95. In my personal opinion I do think it’s worth paying that bit extra to help bring my hair up to better condition and these products seem to really be helping. I would be happy to purchase more as and when I need them. 

Other Envy products are also available at Envy Pro.

Beauty treats for me: Creightons Argan smooth 

Published April 6, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Today it’s all about the hair and hair care. The brand is Creightons who own a good selection of popular high street beauty products. One of their latest ranges is the Argan smooth.


Argan oil has become a very well known miracle ingredient in health and beauty and especially so in hair care products. The antioxidants contained in Argan oil can help work wonders on all hair types, adding shine and nourishment to even the driest of locks.

I have tried out five of the new Argan smooth range. The shampoo, conditioner, heat defence spray deep conditioning masque and thd miracle hair oil.


I love the shiny blue/silver packaging which glimmers with light. I think it’s worthwhile having a few of these products together as they can all be used one after another, starting with the shampoo, conditioner, deep masque, heat defence spray and finishing a style with the miracle oil. It’s like a complete twice weekly hair care routine, I do only wash my hair twice a week as it requires heat styling due to a natural wave/curl and a bit of frizziness due to colouring so the less heat on it, the better.

Using products has made my locks more manageable and the best thing overall is the price of the products – mega cheap. All costing between £1.99-£2.99 each. All of these products together comes to less than £15.00 which is really surprising compared to other brands. 

These products have recently been introduced into supermarkets too, as well as being available to buy online on the Creightons website. 

And my hair after using these products for two weeeks. 

Bath time with Childs Farm

Published March 2, 2015 by Bizzimummy

Award winning British brand Childs Farm was the brain child of mother of two, Joanna Jensen.

Having struggled to find baby & child toiletry products to deal with her daughters’ fine hair and sensitive skin, Joanna joined forces with respected UK manufacturer Medichem to make her own.

Her criteria has always been for as many naturally derived ingredients as possible that can do the jobs of cleaning and detangling effectively, for organic essential oils that are suitable for young skin and hair, and packaging that reflects everything that Joanna holds most dear – her children, pets and animals and of course, the great British country-side all thrown together in quirky and madcap situations by children’s illustrator, Emma McCall.

Through clinical trials, the products have proven to be suitable for even the most sensitive skin including skin prone to eczema, and are even mild enough for newborns. Every product has been dermatologically tested and approved, and paediatrician approved.

Ryan is slowly moving on to more adult men’s toiletries as he is now 10 and thinks he is all grown up. Jordanna and Izebella absolutely love being pampered like little princesses and are always very enthusiastic to try out new bathing products. With Jordanna I do have to be careful of what I use. She had not been diagnosed with any form of eczema as such but is prone to dry itchy skin and odd spots and rashes which can be made worse after bathing.

My girls were sent over some Childs Farm products. There is a wide varying selection in the online shop all sorts of bathing, lotions and hair products to choose from at fairly low cost.

This is the Top to Tosie Cleaning Kit. Inside the reusable pouch are 3 bottles of Childs farm award winning products.

Hair & body wash for dirty rascals

Hand & body lotion for silky skin

Bubble bath for sweet dreams.

Each one with delicious zingy/zesty fragrances of citrus fruits making little ones smell very fruity and almost good enough to eat.

I thought the designs on the product bottles were really lovely too, unlike many others these are covered in all sorts of designs. The illustrations are designed by children’s illustrator Emma McCall. They include things which company owner holds dear including her children, animals and the countryside.

Izebella seemed very eager to use her new products straight away and she was in need of a good bath with food and all sorts from nursery all over her.

The warm bath was filled with the sweet dreams bubble bath. It’s comes out rather quick so it’s best not to tip the bottle too much. The bubbles form very quickly and the bath turned into a bubbling spa. Next went on the hair and body wash (for my dirty rascal) this made Izebella smell so nice and it’s really good that we don’t need two separate products.

She kept saying “that smells nice mummy” and it does. It’s a scent grapefruit and oranges and the aroma fills the bathroom.

As well as the Top to Tosie kit we were also sent a bottle of conditioner in a strawberry and organic mint fragrance. Just perfect for the luscious locks of little princesses and the bottle is in a pretty pink colour too.

After shampooing it was time to apply the new conditioner, which left the long princes locks feeling soft, silky, smooth and tangle free. Both the conditioner and the hair & body wash are also tear free meaning no nasty stinging sore eyes and far less bath time tears and fears.

The final product to use was our hand & body lotion from the Top to Tosie kit. Once bath time was over and little Izebella dry, it was time to apply. I found this had the strongest aroma out of all the products. Izebella really liked having it applied even tho she did insist on doing it herself.

It dried pretty quickly, absorbed into the skin fast and left her smelling like a lovely grapefruit, all sweet and nice. She loves it.

I don’t think I have ever seen a 2 year old so happy with bathing products. She was even pointing out the pictures on the bottles and had no hesitation in taking them straight to the bathroom when they arrived.

The Top to Tosie kit costs £8.99 and is perfect for travelling as well as home use and the conditioner is £3.99. Both products along with others can be purchased directly from Childs Farm

 

 

Good Bubble

About Good Bubble

Good Bubble make natural and fun bath stuff to get you squeaky clean and open you and your family up to some new discoveries too. From the superfruits that take pride of place in their bottles, to their journey from far away lands and the way it’s all put together at a family business in the heart of England. They bring you gorgeous, gentle formulations that truly nourish your hair and skin. Rich in nutrients, free from harsh chemicals and kind to the planet. Made with only the best intentions. No tears. No nasties.

I was really happy to be sent over some Good Bubble products got my children to try out. We all enjoy trying out new bath products and toiletries and were getting a little tired of the same brands found in shops. My children have 3 of the Good Bubble products.

Super bubbly Bubble bath, Smooth Softly Conditioner and Clean as a bear shampoo.

The good bubble products come in two super fruit variants, both of which smell fantastic and gave my bathroom a lovely aroma. There is dragon fruit and cloudberry. Dragon fruit is something I enjoy eating when I can get one but I have never heard of a cloudberry and actual even googled it to see if it was a real fruit. It is, it looks a little like a raspberry so I may just have to look out for it next time I shop for fruit.

The bubble bath gave lots of lovely bubbles. I only had to use a very small amount and the bath was filled with bubbly goodness. Ryan is too old for bubble baths now and prefers showers but Jordanna and Izebella love their bubble baths and also both enjoy sharing a bath together. (More fun and more mess!).

The shampoo had a delicious smell and was very foamy on thr hair. It is also gentle on the eyes, being pretty much tear free. No eye sting and no frustration. The products are all formulated with little ones in mind.

Just look at her crazy bath hair!

I was very happy to see a stand alone conditioner product for children. I do find that kids conditioners can be hard to come by and it's usually a 2 in 1 shampoo/conditioner product which is just no good for long curly hair. Again this conditioner smelt great. It seem to be a good conditioning product too which left my girls hair soft and manageable afterwards.

 

All Good Bubble products are Vegan society registered making them suitable for almost anyone. They contain special moisturising properties to nourish young hair and skin.

The products can be purchased directly from the Good Bubble Shop and start from £3.69 per product.
