How I Get Wavy Hair without Heat

Photo from my video How I Get Wavy Hair Without Heat

 

Most of my beauty reviews on Chic Cocktail blog are focused on hair care products which actually corresponds to my obsession with hair styles, or more specifically hair color, experiments. I need to admit that I really have gone through a couple of different hair styles in the past years. You can even see the proof in my post ‘My different hairstyles’. Altogether with my main passion, which is fashion obviously, I can see the picture of me quite clearly. Once I’m all dressed up and my hair is fine, I feel good. My makeup is a secondary issue. A healthy diet and calm mind is my best skincare. If my skin in in good condition, I do not burden it with makeup, usually. My mornings are all about my outfit, accessories and the hair! (Well… ok, plus eyebrows and mascara). (more…)

A Quick Peek at Laser Hair Removal

In my recent post Smooth legs with sugar paste I shared my experience with sugaring hair removal technique which I have been myself practising at home. This is definitely not where my exploration in hair removal techniques ends and thus I would also like to share some facts about even more effective technique to remove hair which is laser hair removal. So, let’s take a quick peek at some useful findings about laser hair removal.

Olivia Garden Round Brush for Big Waves Hair

If you have long hair, you will agree with me that sometimes it’s difficult to find new loose hairstyles. The natural style of my hair is something between straight and a little wavy and since it is particularly not definable, it also looks like that if I don’t style it. I’ve been straightening my hair a lot and sometimes I’ve also been curling it with my flat iron. Recently, I fell in love with big waves hair style. (more…)

Smooth Legs with Sugar Paste

We all want to have smooth legs all the time, especially in summer when we expose them the most. As I mentioned in my Sugar Body Scrub review, I’ve been learning how to do sugaring hair removal. And literally, I’ve tried hard and there must have been over dozen unsuccessful tries. But since I’ve also experienced professional salon sugaring and saw how my sensitive skin was really comfortable with the process plus the long lasting effects, I decided that one day I will learn how to do sugaring technique at home.

Melvita Rose Day Cream

In my recent beauty routine I’ve become pretty much minimalistic treating the skin of both face and my body with the amazing organic cold pressed coconut oil. I love its moisturizing, cleansing and regenerating effects. However, the oil is obviously not an ideal base to start with in the morning before you apply a foundation. Thus I was searching for a natural product with long lasting hydrating effects.

I’ve been planning to show you this little helper for some time already because I think there are still ones of you who do not know what a perfume travel atomizer is and how useful job it does. I guess we all have our favorite perfume, or some might have more and like to change them according to the mood. Either ways, to carry a perfume bottle, even the smallest size of 30 ml (1 oz), adds a considerable weight to our handbags. (more…)
