I was so happy to have gotten my Viva La Juicy VoxBox and my excitement was well worth it!
The samples came in really cute packaging and the smell was absolutely fantastic! I hope the vanilla scent with sweet berry undertones. It's soft, yet allurring fragrance that has presence - by that I mean that the perfume is not so overpowering that it leaves people wondering if you've marinated in the stuff but it's also not too weak a fragrance that you can barely smell it.
I really like the delightful and long-lasting scent! For me, I feel like the vanilla fragrance gives it both a feminine and soft feel while the berries and fruit give it allure and enticement. I like to think of this perfume as "Innocence...with a playful side!"
This baby is perfect for a first date or for date night!
The perfect way to misturise, hydrate and deep condition 4c type hair!
I have been using this Cantu leave-in conditions for almost two years and here are my thoughts on this cream:
PROS: *It feels amazing on your hair because it provides it with maximimi moisture due to the Shea butter. *It is not a heavy cream so it does not leave your hair feeling weighed down . *It is so versatile in it's used! You can using it for daily styling, to tame frizzy hair, repair spilt ends by rubbing it into the end of you hair, (and my personal favourite!) for deep conditioning your hair! *It's effective yet mild. I can use this on my 3 year old daughter's head without any issue. *It's super affordable and will last you for a long time depending on how you use it so, that is perfect for if you're on a budget!
CONS: *It is not compatible with some products, so be wast of what products (namely hair gels) you choose to use this with because it can flake on your hair giving the appearance that you have dandruff.
All in all, I love my Cantu Leave-In Conditioning repair cream and I see myself using this product for a long, long time!
I have wanted to try TREsemmé products for the longest time for for reason that I can't quite seem to remember, I never got around to it...until now!
Once, while doing my grocery shopping, I noticed that the TREsemmé Smooth&Silky Shampoo and Conditioner were on sale, so naturally I placed them in my cart. I have been using rhis product for the last two months now and here are my thoughts:
PROS: *This shampoo is infused with Argan oil-a precious skin and care oil that has been used by women in cosmetic for literally hundreds of years! It is packed with vitamins and goodness for you hair and skin so you know that you cannot go wrong with a shampoo that is infused with this precious oil! *The smell is absolutely delightful! Soft and almost fruity, it makes washing your hair feel like you are receiving aroma therapy. *A little goes a long way! It really doesn't take a lot for this shampoo to lather up so you potentially won't have to use a lot of it. This of course depends on how long your hair is and how often you wash your hair, but for someone like me who has really short hair and washes it once a week, This shampoo hasn't been too hard on my pocket. *Unlike some other shampoos that I have used in the past, this shampoo does not leave my hair tangled and knotted while washing. I can easily run my fingers through my hair as I wash it. Now I know that my short hair can play a part in why my hair doesn't tangle while washing but I do mostly atttibute this fact based on the fact that this shampoo is good quality. *It does not leave leave my hair dry, limp and full after washing. My hair is still it's usual healthy and vibrant self just cleaner.
CONS: *This shampoo is not sulphate free so, you might eant to consider that before purchasing. *It is not the cheapest shampoo on the shelves. Yes, I did say that a little shampoo goes a long way so in the end, it does kind of pay for it's self but it does come with an initial cost. It is not the most expensive shampoo that you will come across but there is a price tag attached to it so is cost is a factor for you then maybe this shampoo is not the one for you.
All that said, I have thoroughly been enjoying using TREsemmé Smooth&Silky Shampoo and I definitely recommend that you give it a try!
Looking for the perfect hair gel that provides the perfect hold without leaving your hair dry, hard or flaky? Then look no further than Eco Styler hair gel! Using this hair gel is perfect because it always delivers perfect hold and slickness when it comes to me using it for braids and doing twist outs in my natural hair. It is incredibly versatile because you can use for any style from twist/braid puts to braiding your hair or to just simply lay down your baby hairs, Eco Styler Gel works great every time! The smell is divine but what I love most about this product is that is is infused with argan oil so it helps nourish my hair and a little product goes a long way so you won't be breaking the bank when it comes to buying more gel.
These wipes are truly awesome as far as make up removers go!
The thing I love most about these wipes is that they don't leave your skin feeling dry and in desperate need of moisturisation as they are truly mild on your skin! It effectively removes makeup without upsetting your skin's natural balance and leaves your face feeling clean, radient and hydrated!
This product is the first ever gummies that I have tried and I must say that overall, I've had a fairly pleasant experience using this product.
I'm on a healthy hair and nail journey and I felt like this product could be a good addition in hetting my hair and nails to where I want them to be-which is healthy, strong and longer.
So, how does Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies hold up?
THE PROS: *These gummies are delicious and they are packed with awesome natural ingredients along with vitamins C and E. *They have a decent amount of biotin in them (1250 mcg). *I didn't notice any side effects in taking these. My skin didn't break out (even around that time if the month), I didn't get any rashes, I didn't feel bloated, I basically haf no side effects what so ever and that is a huge plus!
THE CONS: *It didn't really do too much for my skin. I jave always had good, clear and healthy skin and this product didn't do anything that brought about a noticable change as far as my skin is concerned. *The gummies didn't really make my nails grow longer, although it did seem to make tgem stronger. I wear a lot of fake nails and so my nails had taken some strain due to constantly wearing nails, buy ai found that slowly over tume, my nails seemed to be less brittle and fragile. So, I that this point isn't 100% a con. *Another con is that I feel like this product didn't really increase my hair length. I did a big shop on my hair a few days before buying the gummies and so my hair is quite short. While the gummies haven't made much of a change to mu hair's length, it has made a diffrence to my hair's thickness. My hair was really thin but now it is thick and rich so again, this is not 100% a con.
Overall, I will say that this was a great product to ise and even though it didn't really work according to my expectations, it did bring about some desirable changes.
It's pretty cheap depending on where you buy it (I got mine for $7.99 at The Real Canadian Superstore) and for the price at which I got it and the results that I got out of it, I really can't complain!
This is by far one of the best daily skin moisturisers that I have come across! It absorbs wonderfully and rapidly into your skin without leaving a greasy film. The active colloidal oatmeal in the lotion means that your skin is getting the best that nature has to offer and seeing as it's fragrance free, you are still able to wear your favourite perfume with it!
Give your skin the best by getting Aveeno Active Naturals daily moisturising lotion today! Dermatologists recommend it and so do I! 😉
This product is the perfect on the go lip moisturiser. It keeps your lips, soft, moisturised and well protected against the sun's UV rays. What I love is how it works wonders as a year-round moisturiser as it keeps your lips from cracking in both the summer and winter months! The perfect lip companion to have in your purse or pocket!
