It's True: You really can restore colour, strengthen and repair dry and brittle hair And Here's How...

Posted on December 29, 2015 by Melanie Brown

Do you colour or highlight your hair?

Have you chemically treated your hair?

Do you apply heat to your hair when styling it?

As a result of this treatment, has your hair become dry and brittle?

Well, there is a way to repair this damage. Shall I reveal the secret?

It’s Aluminé’s Soy and Baobab Oil Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner!

With today’s fashion and trends, it is not uncommon for hair to be coloured or highlighted. In addition, we blow-dry, tong and use all sorts of heat appliances to style our hair.  I bet you are doing this now as we are in the festive season.

Unfortunately, this can have an adverse effect.

Our hair dries out and can become brittle as the various processes deprive the hair of moisture. It loses its elasticity which results in hair breakage.

What you have to do to solve the problem is put back in the moisture and strengthen the hair and Aluminé helps you to do just that.

The Soy and Baobab Oil Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner nourishes and protects your hair. They are both natural, chemical free, paraben free and sulfate free.

The ingredients are a combination of organic botanicals and vitamins which help to restore the colour to your hair along with strengthening it and restoring hydration.

You’re probably asking, “What’s so special about Aluminé?”

Well, this range of products has been created by the world renowned beauty and hair expert, Peter Lamas. For decades, he has helped celebrities to be at their very best and through his experience, has seen how the prolonged use of chemicals and heat can cause damage to the hair. He therefore created a range of products which are natural and chemical free and do not cause any harm. They produce beautiful results and can be used by anyone. They are suitable for vegans.

Most importantly, they work and have received great reviews.

So, the question is do you want to repair the damage to your hair and have healthy vibrant looking hair?

If the answer is yes, please PM me at my Facebook page, melslittleluxuries or email me at  and I will be happy to discuss with you how you can get the beautiful hair you want.

It's True: You Really Can Get rid of dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes And Here's How...

Posted on November 04, 2015 by Melanie Brown

Recently I’d fallen into the trap of going to bed really late. There were never enough hours in the day and I felt the need to stay up to catch up. That had the effect of me catching a few hours’ worth of sleep and before I knew it, it was time to get up again.

What were the consequences of this?

Well, as well as looking and feeling extremely tired, I ended up with dark circles around my eyes. If this continued, I would not be winning my battle to keep the wrinkles and fine lines at bay.

Quite simply put, I needed to get to bed early and I needed to get a decent night’s sleep.

In the meantime, what else could I do to ensure that the skin around my eyes stayed vibrant and youthful?

  • As mentioned go to sleep earlier
  • Hydrate my skin to ensure that it was moisturised and kept the signs of aging away
  • Have a great skincare regime which would help me to get rid of the dark circles

For this, I can strongly recommend The Brightening Emblica Eye Cream from Peter Lamas’ Aluminé range.

Who is Peter Lamas?

He is a world renowned beauty specialist who has dealt with celebrities such as Kate Winslet, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, Cindy Crawford, Kim Kardashian and the list goes on.

He has devised a natural skincare range which is natural, paraben and chemical free. There are no sulfates which can cause allergies or irritations. The products have not been tested on animals and they are suitable for vegans.

The Aluminé range can be used by anyone. As Peter Lamas has said, “Skin has no gender” so it can be used by men too!

So back to the point, what does this eye cream do?

It restores firmness and illuminates around the eyes which means that the appearance of the dark circles is reduced. It is a beautiful moisturiser and you can feel how it hydrates and tones the skin. The intensity of the moisturiser means that the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines are reduced.

This gorgeous product is my new best friend. I use it as part of my daily skin regime. I know it works because people have commented on how my skin looks radiant which is pretty impressive when I have been burning the midnight oil.

So, if you want gorgeous looking skin, and want to keep the wrinkles away, contact me through this page by PM or email me at to find out more

Is It Really Vegan?

Posted on May 14, 2015 by Melanie Brown

A friend of mine asked me a question about vegan skin care products. They wanted to know where the best place to get them was. She was struggling to find vegan friendly products and quite often found that sales assistants didn't fully understand what vegan products were and were quite happy to say something was vegan when in fact it wasn't.  Sorry for my simplistic definition and for those of you who already know, but if someone is a vegan, they do not eat animal products and they do not use products which are bi-products from animals. So for example if they were considering buying a lip balm, they would not use it if it contained beeswax as this is a bi-product of a bee.

Out of curiosity, I went along to a well know company which sells skin care products and asked if they sold vegan products. The shop assistant looked at me as if I had personally insulted her and replied that all their products were suitable for both vegetarian and vegan customers.

I asked her to confirm which products were vegan friendly as I wanted to buy a gift for a friend who was vegan.  The assistant looked quite upset, (haven’t got a clue why), and went to the back of the shop and returned with several sheets of A4 which had been stapled together.  She protected the list by shielding it from my eyes. She scanned down the list and looked puzzled. Then she repeated the scan. The assistant then said, “Oh.” I asked if there was a problem and she said that according to her confidential ingredients list, there were only 3 products she could recommend which were actually vegan friendly. She really looked quite humbled and embarrassed after going through the list. I wondered just how many people have previously visited the shop and accepted at face value that the products were vegan friendly.

My lessons learnt from this experience were, you really have to do your research to ensure that you are buying what you have asked for. It doesn't matter what hostility you face, but if it is truly a reputable company, they will be friendly and willing to answer questions about their products. If they are truly transparent then the company with have nothing to hide!
