On Friday night I put three more treatments to the test; a leg polish that claimed to give you ridiculously silky and smooth legs, another facial scrub and finally a hair rinse that claimed to give you shiny and glossy hair.
All of them used ingredients I already had in the kitchen.
First up, the leg polish.
Next, the facial scrub.
Finally the hair rinse.
Lesson 1 - be more careful. I got this in my eyes and it hurt.
Lesson 2 - use warm water. I should have thought of this before hand but cold water does make for a bit of a shock to the system!
Now I am of two minds about this. After I had rinsed it out I towel dried my hair and then blow dried it. To my disappointment my hair was sticky, stiff, dull and felt like it was full of product. Steve also said it 'smelt like poo!' - not the reaction I was hoping for! It was so bad I had to go straight back in the shower and wash it again. However, after the second wash it was really, really shiny, soft and easy to style. I don't actually know if it was the cider vinegar that did it and I just didn't wash it all out the first time properly or if it was just because I washed it twice in 20 minutes. I'm going to try this one more time next weekend just to see if it is worth the hype.
So there we have it. Three home beauty treatments. One was an amazing success, so much so that I doubt if I will ever buy an exfoliant ever again and the other two are ok and worth a second trial.
I am going to keep exploring home beauty treatments but what do people think? Would you like me to act as a guinea pig and review more on this blog? Have you tried any at home that you recommend?
