Review: Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser

I have been using these products from the Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser line and my hair is looking great. With curly & colour treated hair my hair can get really dry, so when I received these products I was very excited to try them out. When I first received the "L'Oreal Mystery Products" from looking at the card in the box that is how I made my guess. Since it had the classic fresh green colour in the front font I knew it had to be Garnier.. and I was right! I was not surprised when the brand was revealed, my only surprise is that we received a product that we didn't get a sample of.. I'm very thankful for that!

I was hoping that the shampoo was sulfate-free because I need to retain as much moisture & natural oils as possible. To my surprise even though it wasn't.. my hair didn't feel extremely stripped & after using the conditioner my hair felt very soft & moisturised.

I love that the Strength Reconstructing Butter is so thick & moisturising. Winter weather can be harsh on your hair, so this came at the perfect time! It's a great match for my hair because it left my hair feeling soft & healthy(plus it smells amazing!!)

I have been using the Split End Bandage in my hair, but I have been focusing using it more on my bangs. This area of my hair I use a straightener and I’ll occasionally see split ends. I now make sure to only use 300°F or lower, plus I always make sure to use a heat protectant. I cannot say that I have noticed a difference using this product yet... but it would be amazing if it really does help to prevent split ends!

TIP: for you curlies out there who layer products, if you have this serum make sure it mixes well first with your leave in conditioner. I used the serum & then applied my leave in conditioner and ended up having chunky residue in my hair. So I suggest if you layer products to test it out first in your hand and continue to apply it to your hair if it mixes well but if it doesn't... apply your styling products first and then the next day when everything is dry/settled in your hair, apply the serum by itself (or vice-versa.)

This curly girl is enjoying using this line a lot :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day!

Mystery Brand First Impressions

My curls are popping & my hair smells amazing! So far I am loving these products from L'Oreal that I received in the #MysteryBrand voxbox from Influenster. To watch my YouTube video: click here 

Shampoo: Smells amazing! I was hoping it was sulfate-free.. but from the way it lathered I'm guessing it wasn't. However, after using it my hair did not my feel stripped at all which was a major plus. 
Conditioner: It made my hair feel soft and moisturized.
Spit-end Serum: I liked that it was very light weight and not sticky. 

After going to a skincare launch for this brand a few months ago.. I'm 99.9% sure I know what the brand is..

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Sally Hansen Total Knock Out Review #CSMTKO

When I received my Sally Hansen Total Knock Out VoxBox I was very excited! 
All the colours were shades that I would personally wear & I was eager to test them out.

"Jaded": This is such a pretty shade, perfect for Spring or Summer. However, be aware this colour is translucent. 
When looking at the bottle I thought one or two coats would be fine... but if you want a brilliant, opaque look you will 
need a few coats. That was my only disappointment.
"Pat on the Black": This is the ideal Fall or Winter shade. It's vampy & would look beautiful on all skin tones.
"Red My Lips": This is the perfect primary red. It's very vibrant and is the perfect pop of colour to any outfit!

I have been wearing "Pat on the Black" lately and this is an awesome polish. The application was amazing because the brush is slightly wider/bigger then your average brush. So it covered more of my nails while applying which made the process easy. Also what I really liked is that the consistency & formula was very smooth, not too runny and not too thick... it was just right :)

All the benefits:

1. Base Coat     2. Strengthening Treatment     3. Nail Growth Treatment     4. Nail Polish
5. Shiny Top Coat     6. Chip-Resistant Treatment     7. High Gloss Gel Shine 

I would definitely recommend these polishes; just make sure to really look at the bottle before purchasing it because if you can’t see through the nail polish it will most likely be opaque. However if it looks like the light is softly going through it and the consistency doesn't look too vibrant it may be translucent. It all depends on the look you are going for.. but just keep that in mind.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
