New to Me #2 ft. Nivea, Khairpep and Bondi Sands

nivea daily essentials cleansing wipes facial cleansing lotion khairpep hair repair masque serum bondi sands liquid gold self tan oil review

Hi everyone, I'm talking about a few new products I've been trying out recently today! 

I have been absolutely loving this since I got it a couple of months ago! I tan most weeks but I usually favour lotion formulas (I have the Bondi Sands Dark Lotion too and really like it!) however I saw Lily Pebbles using this and loved the colour it gave her so decided to pick it up! It’s a lot messier than the tans I’m used to as it’s a spray and I find I have to lay a towel in the bathroom to make sure I don’t spray it everywhere. It also has no guide colour so I have to be careful that I spray it evenly then buff in with my tan mitt. I leave it to develop overnight and I am left with the most gorgeous golden glow! I would say it’s a medium colour but then I would say that even if I was using something that said it was very dark! I do have to be careful round the sides of my hands as I tend to miss a few spots there but they are easily covered and blended in! I am so impressed with how this wears off too! It lasts around 5 days on me before I feel the need to scrub and reapply and where I usually have to top up the tan on the back of my hands throughout the week when using other brands, this wears off so evenly I don’t feel I need to!

nivea daily essentials cleansing wipes facial cleansing lotion review

Skincare snob that I am, wipes don’t register too highly on my radar and I generally much prefer a cotton pad with a cream cleanser followed by a balm/oil and muslin cloth makeup removal routine. Wipes do however come in handy and I always tend to have a pack for when I am too tired, drunk or lazy to do my full routine and these work perfectly to remove my layers of makeup effectively. They are well soaked but I like to store them upside down so the moisture gets to the top wipe ready for use and these ones smell amazing! You all know I love the Nivea scent and these are scented with the recognisable, clean, fresh fragrance. I have very temperamental skin that can play up when I switch products but I haven’t found any increased sensitivity since using these!

I was also sent the new Nivea cleansing lotion to try and being a huge fan of the original I was excited to see how this one compared. I am happy to say that it works just as well as the older version I talked about in this post! This is my absolute favourite product to use as a first cleanse every evening as it does such a good job of removing the bulk of my makeup while feeling hydrating and not pulling on my skin. It doesn’t remove eye makeup for me as I wear waterproof mascara so I find I need to use an oil based makeup remover for my eyes but for skin this is amazing! Again it is scented with Nivea’s recognisable fragrance and again it doesn’t irritate my skin! Both products are available from most leading retailers!

khairpep hair repair masque serum review

I was recently offered the chance to try these leave in hair treatments by Khairpep and although my hair isn’t damaged by colouring, I straighten it every day and have my fair share of dry and split ends. I also have a horrid habit of picking these split ends when I’m bored/procrastinating/stressed so jumped at the chance to try some new products! So first for the science bit - Khairpep was developed by a team of European scientists who discovered a long chain peptide – K18Peptide. This peptide is so small it can penetrate and bind to the inner cortex of a hair strand returning strength and elasticity to it. Both products in the range are leave in treatments and this is the only range of products to contain this ingredient that claims to repair hair damage permanently.

The serum (although it is more of a spray I would say) is recommended for those with fine hair while the masque is for thicker, drier hair and damaged ends. I have found both to be super lightweight and they have a lovely subtle fresh scent. To apply, I shampoo my hair and DO NOT use conditioner then towel dry as normal. I’ll split (no pun intended!) my hair in two then spray the serum evenly through the ends of both sections or work the masque in through the ends depending on which product I’m using. I then leave the product on for about 5 minutes and style my hair as normal.

Since using these products I've noticed a massive reduction in breakage! I used to get those little white dots at the ends of my hair that break off so easily and these are virtually gone now. I still have split ends but we all know the only thing that gets rid of those is a haircut! My ends look much healthier and thicker since using these two and I love how lightweight both products feel especially since the masque is targeted towards those with thicker hair. I can imagine these would be perfect throughout the summer when people are generally causing more damage to their hair whether it be through colouring their hair, chemical treatments, sun exposure, chlorine or just heat styling! The only negative is the price – I have the sample sizes but the full size 50 ml products are £47.50 – you don’t need much product though so definitely an investment if you are struggling with hair damage and want a long lasting solution! Khairpep is available from Space NK and Bespoke Haircare.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?

  1. Those hair products look amazing. I have fine hair and it's coloured so I'm quite cautious of breakage, but so many products are too heavy and weigh my hair down. I definitely want to try these!

  6. Im not a fan of makeup wipes as I feel they are little harsh on my sensitive skin. I definitely prefer cotton pad and muslin cloth too Danielle. These anti-breakage hair products sound nice. I need to try these sometime. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I haven't tried any of these goodies, so I'm glad you've shared them Danielle! I definitely need to start self tanning, I'm so pale lol. The Bondi Sands Self Tan sounds amazing, and it's such a good price too. I just always get scared that I'm going to go completely orange and streaky. I'm glad you said that it wears evenly, so that definitely sold it to me. I like to always have a packet of wipes on hand. I love Nivea, so I'd really like to try these. At the moment I use the No7 ones, as I have sensitive skin too. Those are the only ones that work for me, but I'm always looking for different varieties.

  9. When I start tanning again, I want to try Bondi Sands because it's a brand I haven't tried before. I hope I have a few more weeks of my real tan & then I'll give it a go! xx

  12. I haven't used Nivea skincare in ages but I am also a fan of the classic scent :) The hair products sound great but they're so expensive! Fortunately my hair is healthy and I really don't need much to keep it in good condition. x

  13. I haven't used any fake tan products for ages, however I am thinking about giving Bondi Sands a try, thanks to Lily :) My arms are 3-4 shades darker than my legs, so I need something to make it even :) Wipes come handy when you are away, then you don't need to carry much with you.

  15. Haven't tried any of them but will think of picking up some nivea wipes next time! The tanning oil sounds amazing! Khairpep sounds so good, I have thick hair though so the serum will probably not work for me!
