José Eber Beauté Cheveux The Shampoo

*Press Sample*

Hey y'all!  Today I have a new shampoo that I've been using for about a month to talk about.  This shampoo is an innovative daily foaming shampoo that transforms into a creamy, luxurious lather that protects hair with each wash.  Light and airy, it includes advanced ingredients to hold moisture in hair even after rinsed away.  Your hair feels youthfully enriched with each wash.

The Beaute Cheveaux collection is formulated with a special mineral blend including:
  • Laminaria digitata - Brown seaweed extract to help increase hair's strength and resilience.  Its anti-microbial activity helps deliver ingredients deeper into the hair cuticle.
  • Chorella vulgaris - Micro-molecule from micro algae that infuses hair with moisture.
  • Opuntia ficus-indica - Extract from the prickly flat paddle cacti of Napol that infuses hair with strength and is very lightweight.  Also repels toxins and environmental damage.
  • Silene uniflora - Extracted from the water of the French Atlantic, this ingredient repels UV damage and other environmental toxins.  It also works to soften and smooth hands.

This comes in a can that reminds me of mousse.  Once you wet your hair, you shake this well

The "Root" to Healthy Hair Stems from the Scalp

*Press Sample*

Hey y'all.  Recently I've been noticing my hair looking thinner.  I used to have SUPER thick hair that seemed to take forever to dry.  Not only was it thick, but it was long.  Since the birth of my son it's gotten worse.  Shockingly, the day before I was asked to try this I was talking to my BFF about trying some products to help thicken and grow. 

The Problem: Dull, Lifeless, Thinning Hair
The Solution:  Start at the Scalp


 This collection is called den-si-ty and it's by a company called HairMax.  They offer products ranging from a laser comb(which can be used with this or alone), to hair supplements, to treatments.  This collection enhances, invigorates, revitalizes, and fortifies weakening hair follicles for thicker, healthier looking hair.  It consists of a shampoo, revitalizer, conditioner, and an activator which can be used alone or to enhance the effects of the LaserComb.



I received the revitalizer.  This is a scalp treatment that deeply cleanses and exfoliates the scalp to dissolve excess sebum, perspiration, and environmental pollutants that can clog hair follicles and inhibit hair growth.  It's an invigorating blend of menthol and peppermint oil that leaves the scalp feeling refreshed and revitalized.

I've been using this for about a month now and I'm already noticing results with this product alone.  After shampooing my hair, I apply a little of this to my scalp and rub it in.  I let it sit for 2-3 minutes before rinsing, then condition as normal.  The menthol and peppermint do a great job of making my scalp feeling fresh and clean.  It is super liquidy though, so I have to be careful with wasting product.  I generally twist open the little nozzle and pour a little directly onto the scalp in a few different spots on my head to ensure coverage.  

I would definitely recommend this to anyone with thinning hair.  This might even help those with super oily hair as I've not noticed my roots getting as oily as fast as they were before.  

HairMax for den•si•ty Revitalizer contains phytic acid to help reduce the pH of the scalp and facilitate laser absorption.
  • 4 fl oz / 120 ml $23
  • Provides gentle exfoliation & deep scalp cleansing
  • Contains natural anti-oxidants and ingredients known to restore scalp health
  • Helps reduce inflammation
  • Promotes natural lubrication of the hair follicle
  • Safe for color and chemically treated hair

Spa Sonic Skin Care System Review & a Black Friday in July Deal

*Press Sample*

Hey  y'all!  Today I have a new, to me, product to tell y'all about AND a super good deal on it to share.  It's the Spa Sonic Skin Care System.  This is available in half a dozen colors, but mine is in Radiant Orchid.



Specially designed by dermatologists utilizing gentle, rotating bristles to offer a deeper clean without irritation, the Spa Sonic Skin Care System removes impurities, exfoliates, tightens and minimizes pores. This waterproof device operates with four attachments: a small brush for the face, a large brush for the body, a pumice pad for rough areas, and a facial sponge for microdermabrasion and reduction of fine lines; all of which are included.


 I have the well known, higher dollar face brush and NEVER use it.  I think it's not only because it's slightly bulky in my small shower, but the replacement heads are so expensive.  So, when I was offered to try this out, I jumped at the opportunity.  Not only is it a fraction of the price, but it's a multi-tasker.  

I've been using this for a few weeks now and I'm liking how I can go from the shower to the vanity with it.  Here's what's included:


Small Brush: The small facial brush is made of bristles specially designed for tender facial skin and to reach every contour and groove of the face.  For exfoliation, apply desired cleanser to brush or to skin before use.  Gently move the brush across skin in a circular motion. It's small, but gets right in to the tiny spots with ease.  It's also super soft and doesn't feel like it's scratching the skin while cleansing.  I haven't noticed any breakouts caused by using this either.

Large Brush: The large body brush is recommended for use on the entire body.  To use, apply soap or cleanser to the body and gently move the brush over skin's surface in circular motions. This feels SUPER soft.

Facial Sponge: The soft facial sponge gently massages skin to stimulate skin cells and improve skin's elasticity.  The sponge furthers the absorption of skin care products used to prevent and erase fine lines and dark spots while also tightening pores.  After exfoliation and/or cleansing, dip the sponge into the preferred skin care product and apply.  I really liked this head.  I have extremely oily skin and hate using moisturizer because I always feel greasy after.  Not with this.  It makes my skin feel softer and gets the product into my skin rather than allowing it to sit on the surface.  I would suggest NOT applying serum to it though as it may cause it to expand a little in that spot and not go back to normal.

Pumice:  Immerse feet in warm water for several minutes, then wipe dry.  Apply pumice to rough spots in a circular motion.  During rotation, pumice efficiently exfoliates rough skin cells and reduces calluses.  The pumice stone can be used on any rough parts of the body such as knees and elbows.  I love to use this in between my at home pedicures. 

Now to where you can get this.  This is available at Target, Walgreens, and Drugstore.com as well as many other online and in-line retailers nationwide.  Available in white, lavender, pink, radiant orchid, vibrant yellow, and tangerine.  Pricing may vary.

For a great deal, you can head on over to Target.com on July 25th and 26th for their Black Friday in July sale, which ensures shoppers save both money and face with Spa Sonic’s Skin Care System and DermaLight deals.

Funky Fingers - Saved By The Glitter

Hey y'all!  Today I have another of the 3 glitters from Funky Fingers at Five Below.  I really like Glitter Explains It All, BUT I think this might be my fav.

 I applied one coat over the index and pinky fingers and two over the middle and ring fingers.

 Wet N Wild Black Creme is the base color for this mani.

As you can see, this is a clear base packed with neon blue and pinky/purple various sized glitters.  As with the others, there is also white matte hex glitters that I feel overpower the rest.  I still like it though.

It also needs a top coat since it wants to mattify the black under it.

Funky Fingers Glitter Matters

Hey y'all!  After using Glitter Explains It All from Funky Fingers, I realized I absolutely needed the other 2 glitters they had in the trio.  Thankfully they were still at my Five Below when I went back a few months later.

Here it is over Wet N Wild Black Creme.  On the pinky and index fingers, I used one coat.  The middle and ring fingers have 2 coats.  The clear base does sorta mattify anything under it, so top coat is needed.

 

 It's a clear base packed with various sizes of pink and yellow glitters.  The white glitters are matte and hex.  Unfortunately, I think the white sort of overpowers everything else.  I wish it had less of them in it.  Otherwise I really like it.

Stamping - Wet N Wild French White Creme vs Bundle Monster White

Hey y'all!  While testing out the Bundle Monster stamping polishes, I decided to test the white out up against Wet N Wild French Creme.  I'd not used it for stamping before, but it's pretty opaque on its own.  So, I grabbed my BM-414 plate and started playing.

 I used BM Royal Blue(24) as my base, it's a cobalt jelly like polish.

Wet N Wild French Creme is on the middle and pinky fingers while BM Angelic White(1) is on the ring and index fingers.  


Again, my stamping skills aren't the best, but you can see which is the clear winner here.
