LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. I love Freddik Fekkai haircare and about 6 months ago, going after one dry shampoo after another, I found Fekkai had a dry shampoo! It smells like their Repair Rx (the light blue damaged collection by Fekkai), has vanilla scent to it, which I usually don't like for product smell, but this is amazing. Zero white powder/dust, leaves hair oil free from 7am to 8pm working at a stables in the hot summer right now. Don't have to reapply, doesn't dry hair out. And that smell I just love this 😁. I love Fekkai's whole Repair Rx line too.
I used to love this mascara, but I've found the brush is a tad too large to really get in close to the roots of my lashes, I think I may try to Blackout, if not I have my trusty go to's that always seem to work.
But i do love the length &, volume it creates. (I always curl my lashes so I couldn't tell you how well it curls, and the first few times using any brand new mascara, I always wipe off the excess from the wand/brush so it never clumps). But I do love the definition, volume, and length it brings to my eyelashes 😊.
Truly surprised me at how well this delivered to make my hair completely better in one use.
Ive been looking for a good heat protectant for months, after using Kérastase's, which is pricy and works fabulously, but I needed something cheaper.
I am always weary of heat protectant "sprays," Because they aren't always thick/potent enough. But this was almost like a creamy thick base. And there was no oily residue. It completely worked into my strands, instead of sitting on top, just coating it. And it definitely protects from heat. Smells amazing, and I love every product in this collection. I am a huge Bumble fanatic, and don't let the, 'oil' throw you off, it truly dissolves into your hair and just feels healthy, softer, manageable, shiny, and no split ends or frizz. Completely love. #BumbleandBumble does it again!!
LOVE. I had been looking for a good heat protectant besides expensive Kérastase's Ciment Thermique, and their Dual Serum for split ends.
This along with the Primer (the white Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer Spray), and was exceptionally surprised at how well they work!! The oil doesn't feel/work like argan oils or other oils, it truly penetrates into your hair and you can use both on on dry or wet hair, (personally I put some on wet hair, then a bit more after I blow dry to protect from flat iron heat.
I want this entire collection of Bumble and Bumble's Hairdresser's Invisible Oil, shampoo, the co-worker oil shampoo, conditioner, the deep conditioning mask, all of them!!
I also am a big fan of their Gentle Shampoo, and Super Rich Conditioner, the Marine Shampoo/Conditioner, and especially the Don't Blow it leave in!
I wanted this to work soon badly. Been trying to find reasonably priced hair products that I can visibly notice a difference, but I felt like I was putting what smelled & felt like melted plastic. 😟. It dried my hair more than shampoo does, and I just ended up having to use my normal conditioner twice. I'm glad I've tried it knowing firsthand it doesn't work my hair I see. 😶
All Excedrin contains, only 3 ingredients no matter what type, caffeine, aspirin (Bayer is aspirin) (NSAID), and acetomenaphine (Tylenol's main ingredient), (NSAID).
The only differences are the amount of the three different ingredients I'm each labeled Excedrin. (So it doesn't matter which you buy, milder headaches, read the labels kkn the back the amount, same as if you have strong headaches, the 'Migraine,' one isnt only for migraines, it just contains a different amount of each ingredient. And ALL NSAID's, (even though they say pain reliever), are specifically directed to minimize inflammation. As when you smack your face and it swells up and hurts, the (NSAID), Excedrin - Aleve, all do the same thing, so if your pain is not die to any inflammation, it's not going to help. So if your head hurts and Excedrin does help you but you're out, and gave aspirin and Tylenol, take one of each of those and then drink some coffee. I gauruntee you'll feel the same results. (Usually our minds think it's not so, but countless clinical tests since coming out with any of these medications, all conclude they are all anti inflammatory medications. And have the exact same ingredients. And if you have pain regularly, I have had migraines/headaches my whole life, and nothing helped until I saw dr. Who wrote me something for nerve pain. I had nerve (well now post-herpetic neuralgia too), so permanent nerve damage that is okay one day, and the best I can't get out of my bed. Just how post herpetic neuralgia works I guess 😟.
If you still have pain and have tried all the common pain medicine and it hasn't helped whatsoever, please see a doctor! Bc that's the case of something inside is wrong. (Not necessarily a huge issue, it could just be allergies or something. But it's important to know. You don't want to go experiment on your own causing an issue to become more aggregated & cause you more pain.
(I study pharmaceuticals for school, my brother is anesthesiologist from U of M and my amazing sister, (in law, she's still my sister)! Is an ER doctor also from U of M).
If things like Tylenol or Advil help your pain then ant Excedrin should definitely help as well. If none do, go see someone (neurologist) would help most. (I went through myself finding nothing that helps. Now that the problem is solved we don't have to change the hormones in our body and cause more imbalance, hense more pain. So your body starts to work to heal itself again. 👍
& Advil, Motrin, both Ibueprofien, (NSAID), Aleve (NSAID) (Naproxen/Naprosyn).
I've stayed at about every Hilton™ extension brand there is showing horses around the country, and (besides nostalgic reasons and un-biasedly), Embassy Suites is hands down, (other than like the four seasons Hawaii), I'm not a billionaire like that...lol. I've NEVER left any Embassy Suites with a negative word. My favorite is in OKC (the Willow Run Airport off Meridian Ave.) But any Embassy Suites I've had nothing but wonderful stays. The employees are extremely kind, they're great with any help/questions you have, without clearly pushing you to purchase a service they provide or some robot acting or kid w/attitude on their phone. No one I've yet to come across at this extension of the Hilton Hotels, has always been genuinely friendly, kind, and doesn't have a bad attitude or seem annoyed to help. I still haven't been in one Embassy Suites that 1). Didn't feel like I was in a wild jungle/garden/themepark, in the BEST of ways! Whoever is the he'd interior designer for that chain, well, they made it off the chain!. It's so clean. So much space and open layout, yet there are countless places in the main area that are very secluded and private while still not feeling boxed in. I think the only issue we have had was with our room card, but that's everywhere. Especially if you have kids, they will be in awe. I was when I walked into my first Embassy Suites, and I was 16...🤐😜). They're the best. They really are. Everything is always masterfully Clean, so spacious and secluded you can find rooms and other places you didn't even know we're there bc it's so big you can't tell by the impeccable architecture. Each one is unique, but the same principles are there, and is still the only average Joe, type hotel, that makes you feel you're at a resort bc they truly care for their employees, the building, the clients, everything is based on making you happy as difficult as some ppl are, (especially at hotels), and they remain kind, calm, and professional. And seen one man leave unhappy. Because they didn't have a senior discount....(please).
There are 2, possibly 3. (They have so many chains who knows anything anymore). I will not ever stay at again in my life. The green label, Hilton Rooms & Suites, or the regular blue one that says, "Hilton." NEVERRRR again. From where I live to all around this country. There's a lot of things I question about both. I've had things stolen from me while I've been gone from my room (as no matter where I go i always leave the privacy sign up bc theft is why. If I wore more jewelry or brought something expensive, I'd lock it in your car. Because every time I get home, or the first time, walking back to the room, I saw my $210 straightener (flat iron) gone instantly...this was when I was younger a few years back. (Hilton Hotels Rooms & Suites, with the green colored sign), did nothing to rectify it. And even after my own mother (who rarely yells at ppl outside the family ever), was even getting really mad, with good reason, after only even approaching the girl working the front desk, you could already tell she didn't care before anyone said a thing. And after five minutes of her audacity of sarcastically replying to me telling her the incident, "Um, well, idk what you want me to do about it. You could've left it at home you know..." I just wanted to slap her so badly. She refused to get the manager. We told her cancel our reservation. We'll be calling to speak with your manager, (where I made sure to say, "Please don't make things worse by trying to screen the calls either, bc we will speak to your manager or boss, everyone gets one day off a week at least..let alone how much of deeper hole you've dug when they hear from a client that's been trying to talk to your boss since they changed hotels w/o explanation...and then sees what you are treating guests like. Not a good look girl...not the way to become employee of the month.
I'm sure some are better than others. But not one (other than Embassy, & probably some others but don't remember if they're by Hilton), I'm pretty sure, the rooms never feel clean to me. I don't mean like gross, see roaches, and just at least own that this hotel is dirty and we are proud! No, it's like. Example, you use products for styling your hair that over time become residue. Imagine washing with cleansing conditioner, like never, ever using a regular shampoo. Cleansing conditioners print right on the bottles, (as well as stylists will tell you), you really can't go past 2 weeks without shampooing just once. And duh, it's like doing your laundry with eucalyptus moisturizer. Like no that just adds smell and covers up the fake bleach water they pretend to clean with. From toilets to especially the beds. (Thank GOD, *Knocking on wood,* no signs at all or have before with bed bugs. But the sheets idk why or who, but whoever picks how/what/where/products to clean the rooms and the hotel, clearly thought it was a good idea to triple the starch and put an eyedropper of fabric softener while washing things of fabric. And there are always just layers. Layerssss of whatever residue the ppl before used left all over the hard surfaces, & especially when you straight up look at the shower, and it's not white. It's plain beige/yellow. They love to claim to use bleach water. Great, but that only kills SOME Bacteria. Not all. ND bleach doesn't sanitize...(yes there is a difference between cleaning and sanitizing, if you've ever worked at a restaurant, you know why there's 3 sinks filled with water, the sanitizer, the bleach, then the Hot clean water, THEN after soaking them in each giant sink, go through the dishwasher. That's clean. If they used bleach, or even enough for it to clean anything, they can only use it wherever there's a light white color surface.then just take out your garbage, new towels, vacuum fr the 70's gets used (I literally have seen the vacuuming..or lack of. They only vacuum like that straight hallway in your to from your door to the opposite wall, don't change your sheets unless you stay more than 3 nights. And Literally they count in the fact of ppl smelling the chlorine (they add a ton more than a pool's pH should be, healthwise. (they do tht on purpose so all the way on the top opposite corner if that your room, you just smell chlorine instead of whatever I'm, wasn't..cleaned. so if your skin is drier, or something is irritating or drying your skin, it's most likely die to the pool and the abnormally high amount of chlorine..😕.
Regular sign that says "Hilton," in Navy blue, was also where theft was clear. (And they both ended up giving us I think 30% off our stay? Not nearly the $210 + however much the Spiritual Gangster cutoff cost my sister in law for all her bridesmaids as one of our gifts. (If you know the brand, you know their ish is not cheap.. probably to make it is damn cheap, but I'm sure was at least a $50 cutoff tank like their others. Smh. I think I'll stick to the hotels I feel physically safe and not to feel like I need to keep my valuables locked up in the car...and lots of travel size cleaning products...lots..
The one other time an employee had clearly stolen my FHI brand, still was my all time best straightener of my life. (It looked like the Chi, or a GHD brand), except it was black and RED, with red ceramic plates, and the circle where it hinges together says F.H.I in red. (Oh yeah, and it was $210). Which was on the bathroom counter, had it since I was 17, and was working just as amazing at 24 when it was stolen in Raleigh.
The rooms were okay. Obviously the staff did nothing sadly to rectify the incident in either case. They are out to protect themselves from a frilly lawsuit that many ppl sue over much less. So it's not like in society these days anyone who did it would step forward and be responsible or even think they've done anything that's a 'big deal.'
This was the first dual serum Kérastase offered! This is from the,'Architecte,' line for damaged hair. They also make another of the same thing but darker in color (for more severely damaged hair), which is what I use snow. This one I personally like the smell better, but both products work AMAZING WELL, you will truly see, and feel your hair healthier after the first time you use it. #kerastasesavedmyhair
