I'm really excited to be partnered with Herbal Essences to tell you about my experience while trying out their limited edition boxed set of four of the products in the new Naked Volume Collection. My Review The first thing I did when my Herbal Essences Naked Collection arrived was check out the fragrance. The minty citrus was amazing in the bottle, but when I actually used it in the shower the warm water really brought the fragrance out. It has a gorgeous fresh scent that left my hair smelling beautiful all day long. The shampoo and … [Read more...]

Irish Twins Honey Almond Rustic Soap Bar Review

I'd never tried handmade soap from an online boutique before, so I was super excited to be offered the opportunity to review a bar of handmade soap from Irish Twins Soap Company. They sent me a full-sized sample of their Honey Almond scented soap in exchange for an honest review. I'd always been curious about rustic soaps, but I've been using body washes for years and just wasn't sure I'd like to go back to using bars. I'm so happy I had this opportunity, because I was taken with Irish Twins' soap as soon as I opened the package. The fragrance that drifted out of the envelope when I opened … [Read more...]

Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Review

Since becoming a vegetarian I've spent a lot of time researching natural ingredients for cooking and solutions for household and beauty needs. One of the things that kept coming up both online and in conversations was coconut oil. People talked about how tasty it was in recipes as well as how useful it could be for your skin, body and even around the house. I love the fragrance and flavor of coconut, so I thought it was worth a shot. It can be a bit expensive, so I bought a little container of a cheap brand at a discount store. On my skin it felt okay, but flavor-wise, it was bitter and … [Read more...]

Love that Frizz Control: Shielo Antioxidant Leave In Protectant Review

When it comes to my 30-something, curly hair, I have two constant problems: whacked-out frizz and gray hair--no doubt from being a mom. To cover the "kid spots," I've been using hair dye for years. As for the frizz, which is a persistent problem with the ridiculous Midwestern humidity and the natural nature of my locks, I'm constantly on the search for great frizz control that won't weigh down my hair or damage my color-treated curls. When I heard about Shielo Antioxidant Leave in Protectant for heat styling and frizz control, I had to give it a try. If anyone's hair could benefit from some … [Read more...]

L.A. Colors: Bargain Cosmetics to Stretch Your Beauty Budget

If you're like me, you love, love, love makeup, but don’t always have the extra cash to buy some of the pricier brands. In some cases, I recommend splurging on more expensive makeup items every once in a while, because not all brands are created equally and with some types of makeup, you get what you pay for. In my opinion, some (not all) of the more expensive brands can be better for your skin or glide on more smoothly. That being said, I'm always a fan of trying new things, especially if it means that I might hit on a great deal that will keep a little extra change in my coin purse. … [Read more...]
