Ok so all of these were a gift, tks to my galpal Simsim (i heard this in Friends, Rachel saying galpal, lol)… she was very sweet & we had fun walking around in the Indian neighborhood (her favorite place, lol, she’s not even Indian…ok maybe she is, looool)
Anyways, rambling, here is what she got me
– Vatikka coconut oil with lemon & henna
– Queen Helene cocoa butter moisturizing cream
-KTC 100% pure coconut oil
– Zest lemon soap
Ok so the last one was a gift from the seller cause she really went crazy in his shop, lol, she got a lot of stuff including mine so we had this soap, both of us 😉
Now i always use the KTC coconut oil, specially for my daughter’s hair, her hair drinks this stuff, crazy ! So i restocked this one, but also because i am doing a coconut oil challenge on Hairlista, so i need to have plenty of this oil…
I chose the Vatika because i already have tried the coconut oil, i mean the regular formula of Vatika coconut oil, but this one intrigued me so i went ahead to read the ingredients… 100% natural ! No mineral oil, no paraben, sulfates, all good ! lol
Plus it has henna in it so that’s just going to be my next pre-poo oil, lol
Last the Queen Elisabeth : i tested this body cream a looong time ago in London & i just fell in love, it was great but…i purchased only one 🙁 So when i was back in France i look for it all over the BSS’s and nothing…
until we went in this shop & found it !
She took the big jar for me, i was so happy ! I just looooove the strong cocoa smell it has, and how comes it has mineral oil, parabens etc… all these bad ingredients…yet it moisturizes soooo well??? lol
Whatever, stay tunned for the Vatika coconut oil review in few weeks 😉
What a good haul!I’d give anything to have an Indian shop somewhere near me :).Please,tell us also about this coconut challenge you’re doing.That would really interest me,because I also wrote about coconut oil in my My hair journey posts.XO :o)
Hey girl, i think i will have a contest / give away with plenty of Indian products very soon, so stay tunned 😉
I will def give more infos as soon as the challenge will be officially started 😉
Nice haul! I am in London and even I cannot find the Queen Helen! I used it once when I was in New York and I LOVED it. Too bad hey…lol
I tend to not get gret results with coconut oil. I have used the Plamers coconut hair dress and it just goes on my hair and falls asleep ON TOP of my hair, lol. If I wear my hair down, I get angrey red pimples on my shoulders..I think my skin and hair hate coconut which is a shame as its smells so good! Do you know wht the best alternative to coconut oil is?
Or maybe its just the Palmers brand that is no good to me. I am not sure I will find the brand you are using here in London though…I am currently using JoJoba oil, and my scalp seems to drink it up…So please keep me posted for the chllenge, maybe I can win some coconut oil!
Take care girl.
heyyy Michelle, how r you doing? well guess what? my hair is also struggling with coconut oil, the only one my hair really likes is the Vatika coconut oil…i don’t know if there really is an alternative to coconut 🙁
i will def keep you updated by the beginning of February 🙂
pour le Queen Elisabeth, tu pourrais demander à tes parents de t’en envoyer (si je me rappelle bien, ta mère travaille en Afrique. j’espère que ce n’est pas au Nigéria: ce sont les rois des escrocs!) Ce n’est pas trop cher (2 euros) et on le trouve aisément.
lol, non ce n’est pas au nigéria, mais en fait ma copine Simsim m’en a trouvé a Paris dans une petite boutik a Chateau rouge ! Comme quoi, lol, on y trouve vraiment tout 🙂
c’est cool alors!gros bisous à toi, à ta fille trop mimi et à ta copine sim sim!
Jojoba oil is really great for acne because it helps balance facial oil.~’;
tks 4 da info 🙂
