I have thick 4c hair, and I often worry about heat damage when I have to blow dry/ flat iron my hair for straight styles. I LOVE the Pantene thermal protector because it comes in a handy spray bottle and has a light non-greasy texture that doesn’t build up. It died give hair a nice sublet moisture coating, so it’s a great product for regular use.
I love this foundation! I used the Ganashe shade with the Laura Mercier primer and was very smooth to apply. I have slight skin discoloration/ hyperpigmentation from previous acne scars, and this is the perfect way to give my skin an even look. It has good coverage without looking to thick and caked on. If I purchase this product, I think I’ll get a lighter shade - it’s hard to tell online how it’ll match in person!
I LOVE this dressing. I'm a big fan of Italian dressings and vinaigrette, so I'm always looking to explore and find more that I like. Usually I don't have any success -- so I was pleasantly surprised when I came across the Sun Dried Tomato dressing. It has a light tomato & herb taste and contains slight traces of Parmesan & Romano.
I haven't tried it as a marinade yet, but I bet that would be good as well.
I love having Capital One! It's definitely a perk that they have so many ATMs and branches in the DC area.
I had a decent credit score, so Credit Karma suggested that I check out this card, and it has increased my score, plus I've been getting a lot of good rewards. I get miles towards flights and can even redeem them for gift cards and other items.
First things first -- this review is more about the application and feel of the lipstick than the actual shade itself.
I LOVE the "Lover" color. It has nice purple tones, without being to overwhelming. I sometimes wear it to work, and it tends to last throughout the day.
When I DON'T like is how difficult it is to get full coverage with this lipstick. It takes me several swipes and rubbing my lips together to make sure I'm all covered. It's matte, so it gets super dry, and can get a caked-up look as the day goes on. I found myself having to apply lip gloss and even vaseline on tip to keep my lips moisturized.
I bought this for cheap at CVS, so it's not top quality.
I LOVE this product! I have dry skin and am constantly looking for a good facial moisturizer. This moisturizer has a thick consistency, and a perfect container that disposes the perfect amount. I used this after washing my face in the morning, and again at night. It didn't take long for me to notice that my skin was much softer, and some of my hyper pigmentation had faded. I will definitely be making this apart of my routine.
I received this product in a complimentary Influenster voxbox. I tried to mix this chocolate protein powder in milk, as suggested, but the taste was horrible. I was eventually able to down it because I wanted to get the energy effects, but I was still tired in the hours following. Maybe this is just how my body reacts to it, but I think I may have had better results in mixing it into a proper smoothie that could drown out the taste.
I love this AquaSpa line of body products. The lavendar is true to scent and has a very calming effect. The cleanser has a nice lather and the scent lingers. I love the body creme too, which is nice and rich; a little bit goes a long way and it isn't greasy.
Warby Parker is the perfect option for people who do not want to pay the crazy expensive costs at a traditional eyewear store, but aren't willing to trust some of the unfamiliar eyewear. They have several stores in major cities like NYC and Washington, DC and allow you the option of trying the glasses on before you purchase. I own 2 pair of Warby's and paid under $150 for them. It's definitely cheaper than some of the other traditional eyewear stores, but also a lot more expensive than other sites like Zenni Optical and EyeBuyDirect
