I received this product in my July Sephora Play Box, and was really excited to use it. I love face masks and this brand looked adorable with the simple packaging. After I opened it to use it, and squeezed some onto my hand, I noticed that it had a very faint light green color, but just barely so. It smelled earthy, but in a botanical way. I was really pleased by the scent (and I’d like to point out that it was very faint and even those who are sensitive to scent would probably find this okay - best to test it in a store to see just in case though). The product was slightly thicker than I expected it to be, but it didn’t feel heavy. The consistency was more similar to a thick lotion in my opinion. After putting it on, it felt nice on my skin already, and felt thick but again, not heavy. After the time was up, I patted the excess off - there wasn’t much because this really sunk in nicely. My skin felt SO. DANG. MOISTURIZED. I also felt very relaxed, which is typical when I do a face mask but I think they light botanical scent and thickness of the mask lent to that too. I highly recommend this!
I always really like Pantene products, and this line was no exception. It smells nice, and made my hair feel very clean and fluffy. I feel like this was moisturizing and left my hair shiny. While I didn't find this shampoo anything out of the ordinary, I did like it. I would buy this again, once I use up my stash!
I received this product in a Target Beauty Box and was excited to try this line from Shea Moisture since I’ve had great experiences with some of their other lines. The scent is definitely strongly rosey, which isn’t a bad thing - just strong. If someone were sensitive to scents I would not recommend this product to them. I really thought I was going to like this line but to be entirely honest, I really hated the shampoo. It made my hair feel heavy and a little brittle. This may be different for someone with a different hair type, but for me - it was not good. The conditioner was not as thick as most are, and was almost a little runny, but I felt as though it did just as well as many other conditioners that I have tried. I would not purchase this again.
I received a sample of this in my August Beauty Fix Box. As directed, I mixed the packet with 8 ounces of water. It has a very distinct berry flavor, but has an aftertaste that I don't love. It just tastes very “vitamin” like - not horrible but not great. I don’t think I would regularly drink this, I would prefer to just take my vitamins in a capsule. Not bad every now and again, or maybe for those who have a hard time with pills.
I received this in a New Beauty Test Tube. I sort of don’t like the way this feels and smells. It has a slick and thin formula, but after putting it on it definitely feels like there is residue afterwards. I tend to put this on at night and don’t usually still feel it in the morning but I don’t love the feeling. It does dry fairly quickly though. I haven’t noticed any huge improvements in my skin since using this, and I probably wouldn’t repurchase this product.
Okay, I’ve never really used a setting spray before using this product, which I received in a Sephora Beauty Box. I figured there would be no better time to test out the abilities of this product to keep my makeup in place than at my sister’s wedding. I knew my makeup would be put through at least 10 hours and some tears. Let me tell you….this. stuff. works. My makeup stayed on alllll day and night, through tears and endless smiling for photos. I am completely sold on this and would 100% recommend this for anyone who is looking for a solid setting spray that will really keep your makeup frozen as the exact way you put it on.
This mascara is fabulous! I love it. I received a sample size in one of my Sephora Play Beauty Box. The brush is a good shape to allow for the separation of lashes, and I would say the brush is almost fluffy - big, and sort of bushy. It also lengthens my lashes while also darkening them. I’ve never had any clumps with this, just a dark and dramatic look on my lashes. Easily one of my favorite mascaras - if not my #1! Definitely recommend!
Review for: Batiste Clean & Classic Original Dry Shampoo, 6.73 fl oz
This dry shampoo works well, however, if I’m not careful this leaves white residue in my hair. It doesn’t necessarily look like dandruff but it looks a little bit like I have white roots? Definitely not cute either way but it doesn’t happen every time. It has a pretty neutral scent, a bit like powder. I like other brands better but I wouldn’t be opposed to using this again.
These candies are chewy, and are coated with a bit of a powder. They are a little sweet and a good amount spicy but not too bad if you like ginger. I wouldn’t eat these regularly but if I had an upset stomach or something like that I think I would like one of these.
I gave this sample to a friend of mine, who went natural with her hair about four years ago. She has 4B hair type. I asked her to give me her honest review on these products, and she was very interested in trying them out because she had heard a lot about the brand but hadn’t given it a try herself yet. She said that the products have good slip (conditioner), didn’t leave hair crunchy (light defining gel) and had good definition (light defining gel). She liked the shampoo as well and said that it was fairly easy to get any previous product build-up out despite the fact that it had no lather. She didn't like the smell of the conditioner but says it was worth it with how soft her curls were after (this I can verify, they were very soft).
