Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed

You never appreciate what your makeup can do until you really, really need it and parenthood brings around the sort of zombie stupor that’s given me ample opportunity to really test my makeup hard! So whatever you’re knackered from, whether it’s work, night’s out or those elusive times when you...

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

I have to say, I love having great looking nails but I have no patience with them. As soon as I paint them, I’m itching and trying to do stuff even when they aren’t dry and I’m also quite rough with my nails so I never get more than a...

Seventeen Falsifeye HD Mascara

I have more mascaras then I know what to do with at the moment but after reading reviews showing big love to the new Seventeen Mascara (thank you lovelygirliebits, Blather and Beauty and TotalMakeupAddict) I figured it was a safe bet. At €8.89, it’s also an affordable punt and there’s nothing...

Blog Awards – How do you feel about them as a blogger or a reader?

This post was prompted a few months back when I saw had started up their first inaugural blog awards and it made me realise in the short few years I’ve been blogging there’s been a huge surge of awards just for blogs. It’s amazing really when you consider that a...

aussie 3 minute miracle light

I’ve been an Aussie fan since I was a teenager and their 3 minute miracle conditioner has often made an appearance on the side of the bath in my house. So I did a little ‘oohh’ when I was sent the brand new 3 Minute Miracle Mousses that are basically a lighter mousse conditioner aimed at giving the same great results with a gentler touch. Now my hair is very fine and volume and I don’t seem to see eye to eye so I was thrilled to give these a whirl.

The packaging is Aussie all over and these have a mousse applicator on top. The first time I deployed the applicator, the initial burst of mousse went everywhere so be warned and go easy, but after that it was plain sailing, I’m clearly just an eejit! The mousse feels exactly like any traditional mousse and the good palm full I’ve been using has been really easy to rub into my hair in the shower. It disappears into the hair so it doesn’t feel like you’ve anything heavy and it rinses out just as easily.

So after a week of using one or the other of these every day, what do I think?

Well there isn’t much difference between the two except for the scent but I really enjoyed using both. They’re very easy to use, lightweight and soak in and rinse out with absolutely no hassle. I’ve been a bit lax with conditioning lately but after a week of solidly using these my hair definitely feels and looks softer so I’m nicely pleased. This isn’t as intensive as the regular 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner but this is great as an everyday conditioner that leaves your hair feeling soft but bouncy.

If you’re intrigued, the new range is available now from Boots or you can browse online here and pick one up for the princely sum of €6.89.

So are their any girls out there intrigued by this?

    Gosh I haven’t used mousse in years! I did love Aussie at one point but then I found it started to disagree with my hair. Must give it another go because I did swear by their stuff at one stage!
