We all love indulging in beauty treatments and following our skincare regimens, but we also have to admit that sometimes we just don’t have the time for anything elaborate. That’s where hacks come in. Designed to make our beauty routine a bit easier to do, as beauty sleuths, our interests were naturally piqued. We gave five hacks a try and here’s how they fare.
A 3-Minute Hair Miracle
Our sceptic senses were tingling upon reading the word “miracle”. The Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Hair Conditioner, formulated with Pro-V Complex and an enhanced cationic polymer with up to 80% conditioning ingredients, helps to repair hair damage and reveal tresses that are healthier, stronger and shinier in just three minutes.
Did it work? We tried the Total Damage Control variant and while the claims are quite grand, we were floored to see the results. It works! We all know how we feel like a conditioner is working because the hair is smooth to the touch. But with the Pantene 3-Minute Hair Miracle Conditioner, you don’t just feel the results, you actually see them. Hair is visibly smoother and sleeker after just three minutes – we’re impressed!
Vaseline as lip makeup remover
Many people use Vaseline petroleum jelly as a moisturiser for chapped lips, but there are also those who claim the product is great at removing lip products. We put it to the test and tried removing lipstick with its help.
Did it work? It worked really well. It removed the lipstick perfectly without too much effort. There were no scratching or heavy wiping involved, so it’s great for those who have sensitive lips. If you’re wearing harder-to-remove lip makeup, try leaving your Vaseline on longer before wiping off with tissue.
