February 2012 Glymm Box

Hi Everyone,
I received my Glymm Box in the mail yesterday and thought I would do an unboxing haul. If you live in and around Toronto you know it has been snowing and windy all day... a perfect day to stay inside and blog! This will be my last box from Glymm Box, I cancelled my subscription when Glossy Box came to Canada. I have been trying to subscribe to Top Box for the longest time but that thing sells out like crazy! Anyways, on to the box!

February 2012 Glymm Box
Glymm Box Packaging

Back of Description Card

As always, Glymm comes in this cute little pink box. Glymm was actually the first subscription box I signed up for, and the pink box always brings a smile to my face. Honestly, mine felt very light this month but I was still excited to see what was inside!

Front of Description Card

All of the subscription services come with a little card that describes the products, their uses, full size measurements, and full size retail prices. This is always helpful especially when you do receive products that are new to you and your not sure on the best way to utilise them. This month the box contained four products. You are promised 4-5 samples/full-size products in this subscription service. Spoiler alert: there is one product in here that is already my new favourite product!

Sula Natural Shadow
Back of Shadow Packaging
I hadn't heard of this brand until I received a lip gloss from them in a previous Glymm Box. I wasn't crazy about the gloss, but I definitely have not made a judgement on the brand because the colour I received was such a sheer pink it might as well have been clear. This month there was a full sized eye shadow in the colour Envy Looks Good.

Sula Envy Looks Good

Now I enjoy the fact that this eye shadow is natural and doesn't include parabens in it. However, I can't say I am a huge fan of the colour. Is it unlike any other colour I own? Yes, but I am really a neutral type of girl and I can honestly say I don't think I have ever worn green eye shadow. I am definitely going to play around with it though since it is unfair to make a judgement call on something for the sheer reason that its unknown to you. This is a full size product that would retail for $8.

Swatch of Sula's Envy Looks Good

Mai Couture 2-1 Oil Blotting/Bronzing Papier
This product claim to fame is that it eliminates oil while giving your skin a healthy glow. A pretty large claim, but I am interested to try this and see if it can pull off what it is claiming. I am nervous that this will bathe my face in some serious glitter, but am hoping for the best. As a serious blotter girl due to my oily skin, I am always interested in companies that try to reinvent the wheel (or the blot paper in this case). I wanted to try it out before I wrote this blog post, however, the sample gives way to only a few uses, and I want to save it for a time where I can really see if it works or not. The full size product is 100 sheets for $24.
Sample of Mia Couture Blot/Bronzing Papier

GlamGlow Tingling and Exfoliating Mud Mask

Sample of GlamGlow Mask
I am a sucker for a good mud musk so needless to say I was excited when I saw this product. The product card says it is made for Hollywood's entertainment industry, which explains the large price tag of $78 for 50ml. However, it is suppose to give visible results in 15 minutes, and if it is really a miracle product it would be worth the splurge. I do feel the sample is a little small (I am a girl that likes to be generous when applying a facial mask) and I probably will only get enough for one maybe two uses, but hopefully that will give me a good feel for the product to decide whether or not I like it. Again, another brand I haven't heard of before but as always I am up to try anything as long as it works!

Burt Bees Tinted Lip Balm
Alright, I said one of these products has already become my favourite and here it is! This is a full size sample of the tinted lip balm in the colour Rose. I absolutely love the colour/consistency/ feel/ everything !!
Tinted Lip Balm Packaging
Tinted Lip Balm Tube
The balm comes in this cute cardboard packaging, that keeps with the Burt's Bees feel of being natural and environmentally conscious. When I first opened the actual balm I was a little concerned this colour might be to dark for me if it was true to the colour in the tube.. till I remembered this is a TINTED balm! Obviously it wasn't going to go on that dark! And really the colour of this balm is perfect! It is a sheer wash of a dark red that I just can't get enough of and the moisturising properties are to die for! I put this on yesterday when I opened my box and have been wearing it ever since! And for $7.99 for the full-size product it wont break the bank when I go out and buy another one! (Which I am definitely doing when my sample runs out!) I would swatch it for you, however, I know my ginger skin will ruin the picture so just take my word that it's a great colour!

And that sums up the products in my Glymm Box this month. I can't say it is my favourite box this month, but I am definitely happy with what I received, and am a little sad I cancelled my subscription. I will have to force myself not to watch unboxing videos next month so that my regret does not develop further. If you received a Glymm Box this month, I would love to hear your opinion on what you got!
By the way! I finally got my bh cosmetic eye shadow palette in the mail and will be doing a review very soon!

Enjoy your weekend everyone :)

Save or Spend?: e.l.f. Professional Studio Shimmer Palette

Hi There,
My first product review! Cross your fingers I don't butcher it! I purchased the e.l.f. Professional Studio Shimmer Palette a few weeks ago when I ordered a ton of stuff from the e.l.f. website (possible haul coming soon?). It was actually a product I didn't plan on ordering, but they had a promotion where if you ordered $20 worth of product you received this beauty bag full of items for only $2! This was one of those items. I don't buy many cream products since I find them a little intimidating and especially for someone like me who has oily skin, the crease factor weighs heavy on my mind. However, I have to say I would purchase this palette again and again.

Shimmer Palette Packaging

Now, at $3 it isn't really life changing if you purchased this product and didn't like it. But I still think it is relevant to do a review because; (1) if you Canadian and ordered on-line you paid shipping which depending on how much you ordered adds an additional cost to the price and, (2) I think it is such a shame when I buy a product I hate and it goes to waste! Not good for my bank account or the environment.
e.l.f. is a product line that is not sold in Canada other then ordering off the website. However, while I was browsing for a house warming gift for my good friend in Winners I noticed some e.l.f. eye shadow palettes on sale. You may get lucky in finding their products at stores like Winners, HomeSense or Marshalls but there is no guarantee.

Overview of Shimmer Palette Colours
The e.l.f. Shimmer Palette comes with four different colours (from left to right): a white, light pink, camel, and a darker pink. The packaging contains a small applicator brush (shown on the bottom) and a mirror.The description on-line says it can be used on the eyes, lips, and face (which makes sense since that is what e.l.f. stands for!). I definitely use mine on my eyes and face but I have tried it on my lips and that is a use I just wouldn't recommend. There is just way to much shimmer in these colours to be flattering on the lips! At the most, I would use one of them as a highlight on the middle of the lips, but not all over. Mainly, I use my palette on my eyes but have also found the white colour to be a nice sheer highlight for the tops of my cheeks. When used on the eyelid, I would not recommend wearing these colours by themselves, even if you do use a primer. Alone, they will not last the day and will begin to crease, destroying whatever look you were going for. However, I have found that if I prime my eyes, and use one of the three pigmented colours as a base colour, they give great depth and dimension to any eye colour I put on top of it (the colour I use as a base really depends on what eyeshadow I am putting on top of it). With eyeshadow on top of these colours, they last a full work day for me (9 hours) which is pretty impressive since I have very oily eye lids and have trouble getting anything to stick. Additionally, I adore the white colour as a highlight on my brow bone and on the inside corners of my eyes. It really finishes any look I create, and is something I wear even on days when I don't wear eye shadow, just to make my face look put together. Now I have very fair skin, but I feel as though these colours are universal and would look fabulous on skin tones close to mine as well as darker skin tones. While they all have silver shimmer in them, they definitely do come across as four different colours (though as to be expected the two pinks are very similar).
From bottom to top: white, light pink, camel, and dark pink (without flash)

From bottom to top: white, light pink, camel, and dark pink (with flash)
Now one of the downsides to being a ginger besides kick-a-ginger day (just joking :)) is that the red undertones really show when I take a picture of my skin up close so I apologize for these swatches. The colours are not irritating my skin it is simply my skins undertones showing through.
From left to right: dark pink, camel, light pink and white
When all is said and done, I really do love this palette. I am glad it came with the additional products that I did not plan on ordering because if not I never would have gotten the chance to fall in love with this product the way I have. And at $3? Why spend more then you don't need too! I use this palette every single day and I will continue to use it till I am scrapping the last little bit off the pan. If you live in the US you don't need to worry so much about shipping because you can find e.l.f. in Target or Kmart, but if your Canadian and have to pay for shipping, I suggest looking around their site and finding other things to order. I wouldn't suggest ordering just the palette by itself because with tax and shipping it ends up being over $10, and for that price your not really getting a good deal. But with e.l.f. having such low prices (I mean brushes for a dollar? Common!) you can get a ton of products for a good price. If you are thinking of ordering other products leave me a comment I would be more then happy to give you a few ideas from the things I purchased, as well emilynoel83 on YouTube has two great videos on her top 10 e.l.f. products.
So there it is my first review! Hopefully it wasn't too painful to read. I am assuming I will continue to get better at this as I go. If you do end up ordering or already have the palette I would love you to hear your opinion on the product, as well as an opinion on any e.l.f. products you own.

Enjoy your President's Day/Family Day!

Luxe Box - February 2012

Hi There,
I had the nice surprise of opening my mailbox on Friday to find my February Luxe Box. I almost pulled a rookie mistake when I went to grab everything out of the box and try all the products on, but I contained myself enough to photograph the box first. I am really impressed with the service this month for many reasons. Previously I was subscribed to both Glymm Box and Luxe Box, which I mentioned in my January 2012 Favourites blog. When Glossy Box came to Canada I really wanted to try it out, however, I can only justify being subscribed to two boxes at one time (and even that is pushing it, I really should just choose one and stick with it but I'm not ready commit yet). At the risk of repeating myself, Luxe Box is a beauty subscription service where once a month they deliver deluxe samples to your door for you to try. This is a really great idea if your on a budget and want to spend your money wisely. It gives you a chance to try out that higher-end product before you go and invest your hard earned money in it! If you want more information feel free to check it out here.
I mentioned I was really impressed with Luxe Box this month, and I am for two reasons; (1) My box was in my mailbox the day after I got my shipment email. What amazing turnaround! I know they recently upgraded their shipping option which I am definitely loving! and, (2) The products in the box were impressive! I have to say, I have received ten total subscription boxes from different services and it is my favourite box by far!
Now I may be totally swayed by the Benefit product truth  be told. Benefit is definitely a product line I drool over at Shoppers Drugmart and Sephora but can never convince myself to splurge on. Regardless, on to what I found inside my Luxe Box!

February Luxe Box

The Luxe Box packaging has always been the same since I started receiving it back in November 2011, but this month they teamed up with the magazine Flare and changed their usual black box to a bright red. A really nice pop of colour in the dead of winter!

Luxe Box Overview

When I opened up the box I was met with an array of amazing products, two of which I have been really wanting to try. This month the box contained 4 different samples, though I received three pairs of the Redken Shampoo and Conditioner. I don't have a picture of it but can I just say I love how they put my name on the sticker that holds the tissue paper together. It is such a small touch but it really leaves an impression on me.

Inside of my Luxe Box

Benefit Sunbeam
Oh Em Gee! Thank you Luxe Box for finally giving me my first taste of Benefit. I was crushed when I missed the product reservation last month that gave you the chance to have one of two Benefit products guaranteed in your box. However, my spirits have been renewed and I am super excited to give this product a try. This product is to be used on the tops of your cheekbones and on the brow bone as a highlight. It looks like a small sample but honestly I feel as though you don't need a lot of this product to see an effect, so it should last me quite a while. The full size product is 13ml and retails for $30. This is an average price for the Benefit line, but in general is on the expensive side for a highlighter. Then again if this product can bring a glow to my otherwise stark white complexion, I'm sold!

Packaging of the Benefit sample

Benefit Sunbeam Sample (sorry about the glare)
CK One - Shock for Her Perfume
 This is really a significant sample compared to the little vials that are usually in the boxes. This sample happens to be a roller ball applicator (as seen in the second picture) which I don't mind actually. I don't own any perfumes with that type of applicator so it will be a nice change. I haven't smelled this particular perfume before receiving it, and honestly it is not what I usually go for, but I really love this smell. I wore it today and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the smell and how long it lasted. I would put the smell description it came with but it is literally a mile long, so I'll summarise it by saying it definitely has a floral scent with a sweet musky undertone. This will be great to throw in my purse while I'm on the go.

CK One Shock Packaging

Roll-on Applicator
Redken Colour Extend Shampoo and Conditioner
 I have always been a huge fan of Redken products. They were the first higher-end hair product I ever owned and I am still in love with that same product years later. I received three pairs of the Shampoo and Conditioner in my box which is nice since the type of packaging it is in usually only gives way to one use.

Shampoo Sample
I'm not a huge fan of the shampoo/conditioner sample packages, but only because I find by the time I'm in the shower and want to use it, its hard for me to rip it open with soaking wet hands (am I the only one this happens to?). Additionally, this specific product is for colour treated hair which I do not have. However, I have used this product before and liked it so I am sure my experience will be similar.The full size shampoo product is 300ml and retails for $15, while the conditioner's full size bottle is 250ml and retails for $17.  

Conditioner Sample
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
This is the other product I have been dying to try for a long time. If you Google or search this product on YouTube you will find some great reviews on this Daily Microfoliant. It is a bit different from a normal exfoliater in that it is actually a powder, that you combine with water to create a paste. It will be interesting to see if this product can defeat my favourite Vasanti BrightenUp! exfoliater. At $72 for the full-size 75g product, Dermalogica is definitely an investment, but worth it if it lives up to the reviews it has produced.
Dermalogica sample
All in all, Luxe Box has definitely won my heart at this point, and it will take a pretty fabulous box to beat them out of my top spot. One aspect of Luxe Box that is different from the other subscription services is that each box is usually totally individualised. If you receive Luxe Box and your box had different products then mine, I would love to hear what you got! I can't wait till March's box!

As for the picture quality in this blog, I am trying to get better with the pictures I take of each product, but bare with me I am still learning!

Which subscription box is your favourite ? :)

FOTD - February 14, 2012

Hi There,
Just a quick little post today. Thought I would give you a very quick face of the day. It's a typical work day for me which means this morning I pushed snooze one too many times and had to rush around to get ready. When I'm in panic mode, I always go for a standard makeup look that I have used before and know will work. A single colour all over the eyelid really cuts down time for me so I make sure to pick a pretty colour. The makeup I did this morning took me around 5 minutes and used an array of inexpensive products:
Eyebrows: Purminerals 3-in-1 Universal Mineral Makeup Pencil in Natural(but any eyebrow pencil will do, I got this in a set I purchased off the Shopping Channel over a year ago)
Eyeshadow: A peachy pink eyeshadow with a little shimmer from my e.l.f Studio Endless Eyes Pro Eyeshadow Palette, which you can find here.(if you don't want to order the full palette, Sunset will work or something you already have in your collection)
Highlighter: NYX jumbo pencil in Milk on my brow bone and inner corner.
Liner: Top lid has Physicians Formula Eye Booster in Dark Brown. Waterline has NYX Eye Pencil Slim in Black
Mascara: Combination of Lash Blast Volume Mascara and Lash Blast Lengthening Mascara in Black both by CoverGirl (You can get these mascara's at just about any drugstore or Wal-Mart)
Face: MAC Blot Powder in Medium Dark
Blush: e.l.f. powder in Peachy Keen
Lips: NYX lipstick in Heather
Quick and simple. When you read individuals makeup routines look through your makeup collection to find dupes you may already carry. You don't have to go out and buy MAC Blot Powder if you already have a facial powder you like using. The lipstick I'm wearing is a colour very similar to my natural lip colour, so if you already have a lipstick in that colour don't go out and buy a NYX one! Work with what you have! That way you wont have a million products you bought for specific looks, that end up going bad before you've even made a dent!

What are some of your go-to products that never fail?

Happy Valentines Day :) <3

January 2012 Hits and Misses

Hi There,
While I enjoy monthly favourites, I find it very refreshing to include products that really didn't impress as well. Therefore, instead of doing just favourites I am going to include two products that really didn't impress me this month. Again, just my opinion. There are a couple products that I owned before January but since I haven't done a favourites blog before I decided to bend the rules and include them. Most of the products mentioned here I have linked in their descriptions if you want more information.

January 2012 Hits

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Night Lotion
I purchased this product in October as a little mini pick-me-up. On the actual bottle it says that it is primarily for acne scarring.. which I happen not to have. However, I didn't notice this till after I had purchased it. Nervous that this product would be useless for me, I went into it apprehensive. However, I was extremely surprised! While my skin has passed its acne prone stages since I am no longer in my teens, around that time of the month I found I get one or two. I have been using this for four months now and am yet to have one single pimple. I am not even over exaggerating! This is a product that even if it was $100 I would buy it (though maybe I wouldn't slather my entire face in it at that price!) As it stands this product is $18. After I wash my face at night I apply this all over my face and wait a few minutes to let it sink in before I apply moisturiser. Want to have a look? Click here!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream
Another Body Shop product I picked up on the same shopping trip as the Tea Tree Lotion. I have never been drawn to Body Shop skin care, usually only purchased their body butters. If you haven't been into The Body Shop for awhile I suggest taking another look. This moisturiser is heavenly! Extremely rich and thick I layer this on my face before bed to give my face a chance to really get a moisture bath. Even though I have oily skin, I find depriving my skin of moisture just makes it produce more. So giving it a good dose of moisture at night means I can give my skin what it needs without having a face during the day that is so shiny you can see yourself in it! This retails for about $20 which puts it slightly on the more expensive side (at least for myself) but if you go when The Body Shop is having one of their sales you can get it for $15 or less. They currently have a BOGO 50% off, buy two get one free, or buy three get two free sale. See for yourself by clicking here!

MAC Blot Powder in Medium Dark
This is a fairly new product to me, and is a true January favourite since I purchased it for the first time in January. I had discovered it while daydreaming on the MAC website, and after watching a few reviews on YouTube, decided it was worth the investment to try it out. The $33.00 hurt a little as I paid for the powder but honestly..I believe it was worth every cent! I have fairly oily skin, especially on my forehead. At least twice a day at work I have to go to the bathroom and blot my skin. I am happy to say I have not had to blot once since I started using this product. This combined with my Sephora Anti-Shine Primer.. you would never know that my face produces enough oil for two people! I have heard a good dupe for this powder is Nyx Stay Matte but Not Flat, however I am not aware of anywhere that sells NYX where I live so I can't comment on that. Feel like day dreaming too? Click here :)

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
I received this in my January Glymm box and literally have fallen head over heals for it! For anyone that doesn't know (though I am aware that 98% of you will know) Glymm Box is a beauty subscription service that delivers 4-5 deluxe beauty samples to your door every month. I use to be subscribed to Luxe Box and Glymm box but have recently changed to Luxe Box and GlossyBox which just sent it first box out this month. If you would like to check out Luxe Box click here, Glymm Box is here and GlossyBox is here. Anyways! This exfoliater is simply amazing! The feel and texture is like nothing I have ever used and it is so effective. I use this 3-4 times a week and definitely notice how smooth my skin is, and over time have even seen the brightening effect the name promises.  Now $34 is a little steep for me personally to shell out on an exfoliater, I simply have so many other places I could spend that extra cash. However, I believe when a product really works for you and makes a significant difference in your skin, it is worth the investment. Additionally, such a small amount is needed to make a difference, it lasts forever! This is a picture of the sample I received in my January Glymm Box and I have been using it for almost three weeks and I still have enough product in it for at least another two weeks of use! The full size contains 120g of product, which judging by the rate at which I have used my sample, should last around 10 months. Definitely worth the money! Want to know more? Check it out here!

January 2012 Misses

Hard Candy Face Primer

I honestly do not think I have hated a product more then this one. Perhaps my tube was old since I have found that the consistency of products changes if they are nearing the end of their lifespan. You never know how long that product you are buying has sat on the shelves of Wal-mart or Shoppers Drugmart if it doesn't have an expiry date, especially when you live in a smaller city where turnover is not quite as high. Regardless of the reason, I would never purchase this product again. The texture was chalky and slimy all at once. It had a ton of glitter in it that showed through the powder I put on top, and throughout the day it maybe my skin even oilier then usual. I did not find it made my makeup go on smoother, but instead made my powder foundation splotchy and uneven. I used it for a week before I threw it out!! For now I am sticking with my Sephora Anti-Shine Primer.

LaCoupe Organix Hair Reviver
I mentioned this product in my first blog post that included my current hair products. I may have to bite my tongue on this one because after doing a bit of research I've discovered it is not suppose to be a dry shampoo but is suppose to make your hair smell good when you haven't washed it for a bit. So shame on me for bashing it before I looked into it. However, it is still a miss for me because personally I don't see a need for this product. I only go a day or two without washing my hair so I'm not really concerned about smell. I'll make sure the next dry shampoo I buy actually says dry shampoo right on the bottle so I don't through away another ten dollars on the wrong product! The only silver lining to the fact I purchased this product? The company plants a tree for every bottle purchased...that relieves a bit of my buyers remorse.

Another first for me as a blogger: my first favourites post. Agree or Disagree with anything I said? Let me know :)

First Post :)

Hi There,
This is my first blog post. I started watching beauty guru's on Youtube, and from there began reading their blogs. I found myself wanting to express my opinions and experiences too... so here we are! I believe I am going to keep this blog beauty and fashion related. I do not claim to be an expert at either! I am really beginning to discover both...only took me 22 years! So lets discover and share opinions together! While I may just be talking to myself, I have always loved writing and find it a great release, so at the very least writing this is making me smile.
A little about me. My name is Kathryn and I am a 22 year old recent university grad just starting her career. I am doing some post-grad classes as well as working full time. I love cooking, makeup, fashion, soccer and my little puppy Ollie. I am thinking about starting off with a hair care routine, followed by a makeup and face care routine. I always find watching other people's routine extremely interesting and it always gives me new idea's on how to change mine and products I might be interested in. I also enjoy monthly favourite, outfit of the days, and product reviews so I may write on those with my own little twist. Anyways, let's get into the blog!

Current Hair Care Routine
First off, my hair is red (insert ginger jokes here). It is also course, thick and long - reaches just above my elbows when straight. It is naturally frizzy and slightly wavy. I recently just overhauled my hair care routine after making a trip to my hair salon and getting some advice from a stylist. Before I was using Head and Shoulders Dry Scalp Shampoo - had been using this for years and years. I find I get flakes at my hair line which is why I was using this shampoo. I thought I had dandruff. The stylist told me however, that dandruff occurs at the back of your head and behind your ears. This was news to me! So he suggested I try tea tree oil to help. I know some people have a problem with the smell, but I really don't mind it. Anyways to make it easy to read I will list what products I use:

Shampoo: Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil Shampoo

I would totally recommend this shampoo. It lathers well, and makes your scalp feel cool and tingly. Really moisturises your hair as well which I was a little concerned about. It was $12.00 but I have seen it at some stores for as much as $20. I buy my hair care products from a discount beauty outlet called Chatters. I believe its a franchise so if you have one in your area I would definitely recommend checking them out from what I have found they have the cheapest prices.
Conditioner: Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil Condition

Again,this product in the same product line as the shampoo. I haven't used a shampoo and conditioner in the same product line for a very long time, since I always felt I had to use Head and Shoulders and never liked their conditioner. This conditioner is similar to the shampoo in that it is super moisturising and makes your scalp feel cool and tingly. This is similar in price to the shampoo (I think you can see the price tag in the pictures). I will definitely be repurchasing though they have a lavender product as well I really want to try. As a heads up...if you do not like the smell of tea tree you may not enough this product. I happen to enjoy the fresh smell so it doesn't bother me.
Hair Oil Day/Night: Moroccan Oil/Tea Tree Oil

I use the Moroccan oil on the days I shower (usually 3-4 times a week) and I use the Tea Tree Oil the night before I am going to shower the following morning since I put it in the hair surrounding my face and it tends to make it look greasy. I swear by Moroccan Oil though I am sure you have heard that a million times. The Tea Tree Oil however, I'm not convinced yet. I bought it being told it would help the dry skin on my scalp that flakes sometimes, and I still get flakes. They may be better but honestly unless they go away completely I won't be repurchasing.

Shine/Straightening Spray: Sexy Straight Hair Shine and Lock

This has to be my favourite hair product purchase since I discovered Moroccan Oil 6 months ago. I also bought this at Chatter's, it retailed for around $20. While I am use to using a straightening cream I gave this a try and have fallen in love. I blow dry my hair and then spray sections of my hair with this before straightening. The mist is super fine and doesn't soak your hair. The smell is amazing and the results are truly something to write home about! I will be repurchasing this product for sure!
Dry Shampoo: Oragnix Hair Reviver
Alright , well maybe I misunderstood what this product is suppose to do. I mean it doesn't say dry shampoo on the bottle but the name sounds like it should do the same thing. I liked that it was colourless since I find dry shampoo's that are white stay in my hair even after I've tried to brush it out. However, because it is a pump it makes my hair really wet when I spray it, and I don't find that it absorbs the oil in my hair. I am using it because I spent $10 on it and I feel guilty throwing it away but I will not be repurchasing this. Any suggestions on a good dry shampoo would be much appreciated.
So there it is, my first blog! It took me quite a long time to write this to be honest, with spell checking, formatting, downloading the photo's.
But I have to admit... it was fun and totally worth it. If anyone reads this, I would love to hear your opinion as well as your current products that you recommend I try.
