Grace & Stella Argan Oil Shampoo + Conditioner

2017-12-17 11.21.11

I want to use more cruelty free products and in searching for new shampoo and conditioner and I discovered Grace & Stella Co.

2017-12-17 11.24.55

They have Argan Oil, Jojoba oil, Macadamia Seed Oil, Shea Butter, and Aloe. Which Promotes hair growth, Healing, Moisture and hydration, reduce flakes, and promotes shine.

I have got to say that it does almost all it states it does. I have not used it enough to see if my hair has grown any faster than it usually has, but my hair is shiny and soft. It seems to be repairing the damage I did earlier. The down side is that my hair seems to be holding a lot more static than it normally does. It bothers me a little, this of course won’t be a problem once winter passes. This is an annoyance none the less.

 

Have you tried this Shampoo and Conditioner?

November Birchbox Unboxing

2017-11-25 12.25.49

 

Look at what is back! I’ve decided to start birchbox again. I cancelled Sephora Play because I just like to try different boxes. It’s been over a year since my last Birchbox and I wanted to see how they were doing.  I guess this months theme is ‘Get ready to prep, set, party!’ because the holidays are here and it’s time to dazzle. I feel like I got my Birchbox incredibly late this month and I hope next month I get it sooner.

Wilma Schumann Skincare – Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads – Full Size $18

“These pads are infused with pure collagen to hydrate, de-puff, and plum the undereye area. To use, place one pad under each eye and lean on for 20 minutes.”

I love Eye masks, I’ve never had a bad one and I am hoping that this one doesn’t let me down. This is the first time I am using Wilma Schumann Skincare so I am excited to try it out. The Full size comes with 5 patches, which is not a really bad price. This of course depends on how well they work.

LAQA & Co.  – B’Lighter in Peacher’s Daughter – Full Size $17

“Part highlighter, part blush, this formula catches the light for a lit-from-within glow. Lightly dab onto your cheeck bones, brow bone, bridge of the nose, and cupid’s bow.”

This is pretty interesting considering it is a highlight and a blush. I am a little worried that it is a bit too pink for me to use as a highlighter. It is such a pretty color one that I can use as a blush if the highlighter part doesn’t work too well. I am always a bit skeptical of 2 in 1 products.

2017-11-25 12.24.26  Stila Cosmetics – HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara – Full Size $23

“This inky black mascara lets your lashes go big in everyway. One coat leaves major volume, curl, and lots of length”

I am currently in the process of tossing my old mascaras so this could not have come at a better time. I am hoping it lives up to it’s name because I am really excited to use it. Stila cosmetics has yet to let me down, but I also have never tried one of their mascaras.

Avene – Hydrance Intense Rehydrating Serum – Full size $38

“Boost hydration and your subsequent skincare steps with this soothing serum that’s safe for sensitive complexions”

Glad to hear that it’s safe for sensitive skin as my skin can be really sensitive at times. Hydrating is really important to me at this time of the year so I am really excited to see if this works. I’ve also never used this brand before so I can’t wait to try it out. It seems a little pricey, but I’ll see what it can do before I get judgy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2017-11-25 12.25.34 Klorane – Shampoo with Mango Butter – Full Size $20

“Mangos are known for their restorative properties, making them ideal for this nourishing shampoo. Their fatty acide content heps heal dry, brittle hair as it cleanses.

I don’t mind getting shampoos and conditioners in my boxes, as long as I get them as a duo and the same size. The fact that this is not the same size kind of upsets and disappoints me. I like Klorane so ever if I got two packets shampoo and conditioners I would have been happier than to get a small bottle and one packet. I’ll just have to use it on those days I use leave-in conditioner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So this months Birchbox was not too bad, but nothing wow’d me or impressed me. I did discover two new skincare brands so that is a plus. I’m hoping next month will be better. Also, Sorry about some of the blurry pictures, I had two cats and a puppy all vying for my attention and they refused to leave me be.

Drug Store Haul

I’m trying to be more Cruelty free conscious when purchasing my make up and beauty products. Going to the drugstore however I feel they have a very limited selection for Cruelty free lookers. I mean Come on it’s 2017, testing on animals is no longer okay!!!

Anyway while I did not buy much I wanted to show you what I did buy.

Hask Argan Oil Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner.

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Body Wash

Jason Tea Tree Oil

While the Shampoo and Conditioner and Body wash is mine I actually got the Tea Tree Oil for my husband. The Tea Tree Oil is for exfoliating his chin and neck hair for when he needs to shave. My husband has wavy hair and so it’s particularly hard to shave his chin and neck (the problem areas) which results in  redness, ingrown hairs and razor burn.

I’ll be sure to write a review once I have used it all.

Maui Moisture Bamboo Fibers Shampoo and Conditioner

2017-04-23 16.25.40

Like I said in my Not Your Mother’s Pump for joy review that I’ve really been trying new things with my hair. I picked up this Shampoo and Conditioner because The weather has really done a number on my hair. Split ends seemed like it was in my very near future. This was Cruelty free and vegan friendly so I immediately wanted to try it.

I will say one thing it packs so much moisture into my hair. The shampoo is thick and has the texture of slime so that was a bit off putting at first. also it was really hard to spread and it produces very minimal suds so I feel like I use a lot. The conditioner is much more creamier but it flies out of the bottle and I get a lot in my hands (and floor)

My hair has been much more moisturized, maybe too much honestly, it feels thicker and much more healthy than it normally does. The smell is also amazing, almost like guava. This would be a great shampoo and conditioner for winter, but seems too much for spring and summer. maybe I’ll store it away until then.

Sample Sunday V

schwarzkopf essence ultime

Today’s Sunday sample is Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Shampoo and Conditioner. I believe I got the shampoo and conditioner for a Walmart Beauty Box. I recently ran out of my usual product so I decided to try this out before purchasing more. The Sample had a surprising amount of product in them that it lasted a whole week and more to my surprise. After every use it made my hair feel clean and soft, however towards the end of the sample life the ends of my hair felt slightly brittle so I think it may have dried them a bit.

The chemical smell of the shampoo and conditioner did not bother me, but if you have a sensitive nose this is not for you. I am not going to be purchasing the full size and just will be sticking to my usual product.

Let it Grow! Not Your Mother’s shampoo and conditioner

Not your mothers shampoo and conditioner

So Today I want to talk about a new shampoo and conditioner I’m using. Not Your Mother’s Way to grow Long and Strong Shampoo and Condtioner (Wow That’s a lot of words). I picked it up recently because I’m trying to grow out my hair while not sacrificing the quality of my hair.

Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Long and strong shampoo and conditioner promises to make your hair stronger, healthier and longer.

So my hair does feel strong and healthy however, is my hair longer? Eh, most likely not, at least I don’t see a bog difference in length. I really like the smell of this stuff and even my husband compliments the smell. however, The one thing that bothers me is I feel like this stuff runs out quick. Maybe I’m just using too much?

Anyway,  I do recommend this product for anyone that needs a shampoo to strengthen their hair.

Clairol Volume infused Shampoo &Conditioner Review

Clairol Hair Food

 

Going to target for what was suppose to be a quick trip (it never is!) I realized I had to get new shampoo and Conditioner (which of course added another hour to my already LONG visit). I’ve had no luck in the Hair department lately just using products that seem to damage my already fragile hair. I’ve had breakage, oily hair, split ends and flat hair and it seems that no matter what I use it doesn’t help.Seeing Clairol Hair food Infused volume shampoo and conditioner I was intrigued and so picked up the duo and headed towards checkout.

I am so happy I picked this up, not only does my hair have more volume but it feels softer and more manageable, plus it smells amazing. So amazing even my husband loves the smell and he doesn’t like anything. I am so happy I picked this duo up! I’ve been using it for a week and a half and the results are great. I am definitely going to keep using this!

Have you ever tried Clairol Hair food? What do you currently use on your hair now?
