A Trip To Mecca Cosmetica


Last week I took a trip to Mecca Cosmetica. There's nothing particularly unusual about that. What was most unusual about this visit was I dashed right past Nars, sidestepped Diptyque and headed straight for the Bumble and Bumble shelves. One thing I want to feature on the blog more this year is haircare and skincare. I also happened to need a new conditioner. You know the drill..

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dry Spun Finish This is showing up as unavailable online so it may have sold out again. I was not expecting to see this on the Mecca shelves given it has been MIA for a few months now.  This is similar to the well-loved Oribe texturising spray which we can't get in New Zealand. My hair is quite thick but once I straighten it, which is most days, it tends to lose its volume. Spritzing this through the roots and then shaping the hair with my hands gives it more body and bounce. It earns bonus points for not having the toxic scent some hairsprays have and not leaving my hair feeling crispy. 

Bumble and Bumble Surf Creme Rinse Conditioner It may just be because it's Summer but I am obsessed with hair products that revolve around the beach hair concept. More on that soon. This lightweight creme conditioner is designed to leave hair feeling airy and soft with body, texture and enhanced natural wave. I have only used this once and noticed my hair had the faux 'beach swim' thing happening, with less salt obviously. This can leave the ends of your hair feeling a bit dry but it's nothing a bit of this can't fix. 

*Have you tried any Bumble and Bumble products? I'd love to know your thoughts! I hope everyone's having a fabulous weekend so far. Mine's been quite chilled admittedly but that's perfect after the week that was. xo
