I received this conditioner for free as part of an Influenster VoxBox.
This conditioner is one of Herbal Essences' attempts to create a more "natural" and eco-friendly product. It is supposedly "Color-safe, pH-balanced, with 0% parabens, gluten and colorants," according to the Herbal Essences website. So far the color-safe rings true, however, I am a little skeptical about the accompanied shampoo, which has sulfates. This conditioner is sulfate-free, so it itself should be fine.
The conditioner pleasantly surprised me. It has a very mild smell (maybe too mild for my personal taste), but it feels very nice on my hair. It is very smooth and when I rinse off, leaves my hair feeling soft and hydrated.
I will be using this product until it's empty, however, I will not be purchasing it after that, mainly because I do not like its partner, the Herbal Essences Blue Ginger Shampoo.

I have naturally dark blond hair that has been lightened by both the sun and an unfortunate lightening attempt that originally left it a very unattractive brassy yellow, which I have since managed to turn into a silvery, icy blond via the highly concentrated Fanola No Yellow Shampoo. As most people with salon-dyed hair know, shampoos that contain sulfates tend to strip color from dyed hair. The chemical is added to increase the shampoo's foaminess, however, it simultaneously strips color molecules from hair. In this shampoo, sulfates are two of the top three ingredients, making me question exactly how "color-safe" it is. (To be fair, this is not just the case with Herbal Essences' color-safe shampoo. Many pharmacy brands like L'Oreal also have shampoos with sulfates that claim to be color-safe.)
Color-Safe aside, this shampoo does foam nicely and leaves my hair feeling nice and clean. I usually shower every day after the gym, and I am pleased with it so far. I do use the Fanola No Yellow Shampoo ($10 off of Amazon, best purchase I ever made) once a week to make sure my hair does not turn yellow-y. This shampoo is clear and has a very, very, very mild smell. It does not bother me too much, but I was surprised by how bland it is, considering Herbal Essences is usually known for its beautiful smells.
Overall, I will be continuing to use this shampoo until it's empty, but I will not be purchasing it.
I would recommend these strips. I received them for testing purposes from Influenster, otherwise I would not have bought waxing strips for my face. I have very sensitive skin and light blond peach fuzz, not a mustache I regularly remove. However, the strips were easy to use and left minimal redness. I would recommend cutting them in half to get a more precise wax, but they worked well.
This was the most miserable experience I have had with a tongue scraper. The idea is cute, it doesn't look scary, but I have a horribly sensitive fag reflex so this just didn't go well at all. I got this in the resolutions Vox box for free, gave it a chance, and chucked it in the trash.
I bought this lip liner to go along with the Smashbox Always On Matte Lipstick in Bawse because I didn't want to spring the extra $10 for the Smashbox color to go along with it, and I could not be happier. The liner is very smooth and pigmented. It does take a minute to dry and you need to blot it to prevent it from smudging, but i haven't had any feathering throughout the day. It stays on through food and drink, though it will transfer when touched.
I got this Lipstick in Bawses, mainly due to all the hype about it matching all the skin tones in the world, and essentially just being magical. I have to agree, the color is fantastic. It's full, it stays, it doesn't look too bright on my skin. Everyone can use a boss b*** color like this one. That being said, as it's a matte lipstick, it does dry your lips out a little. Make sure to exfoliate your lips and moisturize them to get the best color and look. The lipstick also stays like a pro IF you let it dry fully. I applied it about 30 minutes before eating soup and it did not end well, but if i let it be for 45-60 minutes, it will stay all day - through food, coffee, and life.
As someone who fails at getting motivated, I adore the Y. Their actual gym and fitness equipment is rather limited but their classes are fantastic. Everyone can find something and it's a great community setting. You can take an unlimited amount of classes and make the most of it.
I love planet fitness. They always have amazing deals and their equipment is top notch. Extremely great value considering how much they actually offer. I also love the atmosphere. Everyone can feel welcome, regardless of fitness level.
OK Cupid seems to have a lot of people in their late 20s and 30s that want long-term relationships. Definitely not you hook up app like tinder. Consequently, ist a much longer process and takes time and money. I would recommend it if you are serious about it.
Blonde moment here, I did not realize this was a wand. I bought this curling wand off of amazon due to the amazing reviews it's gotten there. I didn't realize it was a wand until after it came and had a good 30 minuets of "WHAT? HOW DO I USE THIS??" before youtube made me believe in myself enough to try it. So far, I have only burned a few fingertips. Hopefully, i will get better.
That being said, it's fantastic, once you know how to use it. My hair is super straight. I get out of the shower and let it air dry, and it looks like it was professionally straightened and blown out. Naturally, that means I have always been obsessed with curling my hair, and have consistently been let down. Most wands or curlers will make my hair look pretty for about 5 minutes, then it's pin straight again.
Not this wand. Though my curls still look a little wonky because I fail at using it, they will STAY. ALL DAY. AND ITS FANTASTIC.
Now i just need to get better at using a curling wand.
