Love Beauty and Planet Review

Hello!

It seems like this brand Love Beauty and Planet has been highly promoted recently. I decided to check it out and see if the hype was worth it, so I purchased the smooth and serene duo. There are three other duos maybe four, so there are choices which I think is smart. Firstly, I really like the packaging and think the design is very pretty. In regards to smell I wasn’t a huge fan of any of them, but this is the one I liked the most. I personally didn’t find that it smelled of lavender, and if it does it is a very faint smell. Not a major negative, but still something I wanted to share. In regards to the actual quality of the product this did a great job at cleaning my hair, and not to be gross it had been a while since my hair was washed (over a week). I used about two pumps, and that was more then enough. I could probably get away with using less because the products lather really well especially the shampoo. The conditioner did a awesome job at untangling the ends of my hair and it did it really easily. Overall I am happy that I purchased this set and will continue to use it. Have you tried any products from this brand yet? What were your thoughts on them?

My Shower Essentials

Hello!

Today I am sharing my must haves for the shower from shampoo to shaving cream. I’m also talking about what I use to moisturize after I’m out of the shower.

Let me know what your fave shower products are!

Hair Products

TRESemmé Touchable Softness Shampoo and Conditioner: I have used TRESemmé for years not like a couple of years, but like since the beginning of High School which was 10 ish years ago. I love how soft it leaves my hair, it does a great job at getting out the tangles in my hair, and it leaves it looking so clean over all.

– EVA NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask: The smell alone is what sold me on this product. It smells so good. Obviously though I wanted the actual product to work well and thankfully it did. This is another great detangling product and it leaves my hair feeling so unbelievably soft like run your fingers all the way through your hair soft.

Body Wash

Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash: I am a big fan of Dove. Aside from there body wash I also love their deodorant and bar soap. I like that their body washes smell great without being over powering. This body wash is so moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling so soft.

– Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly: I didn’t jump onto the Lush Band Wagon until earlier this year (yeah, I know.) Just like the Dove body wash this has such a great scent without being over powering. The smell of this wakes me up, so I enjoy using this when I take a shower in the morning. I just think the idea of a shower jelly is so fun! With this product a little bit goes a long way. I will use a quarter sized piece and it lathers up so much into my wash cloth.

Shaving

Shaving Razor: I don’t have a favorite razor. I do typically buy Venus, but I have bought Gillette before along with those cheap, could cut your whole leg open razors (thankfully they didn’t) what I am saying is I don’t have a brand or specific razor that is my tried and try and true, my most repurchased, must have razor. As long as it shaves my legs and doesn’t cut me I like it.

– Barbasol Soothing Aloe Shaving Cream: Years ago one of my friends told me that she used Barbasol to shave her legs and ever since that recommendation it’s what I have been using. Firstly this stuff is only a $1.49, but secondly I haven’t found another shaving cream that leaves my skin feeling as soft as this does.

– 4-in-1 Foot Paddle: I know this isn’t a shaving product, but I still wanted to include it because it’s a great product, and I do use it in the shower. I am one of those unlucky people that suffer from very dry (let me emphasize the word dry) feet. Especially on my heels (sorry if you dislike feet) Anyways, this product has been such a big help to getting my skin more soft plus it’s so easy to use being a 4-in-1 product.

Moisturizer

Neutrogena Body Oil: This is another item that I have used for years. This is so lightweight, absorbs quickly, and once again is a product that smells good without being over powering. I will note that the scent is not long lasting, but that isn’t something that is a con to me. I specifically use this on my legs typically after I shave. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and does a great job at locking in moisture.

– Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance Renewal: This is a thick lotion, so if you don’t like that you may not enjoy this lotion, but I prefer a thicker lotion especially for my legs. This is probably a lotion more gear towards the winter time, but I still enjoy using it during the summer time.

And that is everything that I consider essentials for in the shower. Let me know what your shower must haves are!

Conair Rose Gold Curling Iron First Impression

Conair Rose Gold Curling Iron First Impression

Find Curling Iron here

Hello!

Today I am sharing my first impression thoughts on this rose gold curling iron from Conair. This 1 inch barrel iron is the first curling iron I have owned in several years. I have always had longer hair, and I found curling my hair to be a total pain as it took close to an hour. However since I recently cut my hair shorter I wanted to try out curling it since I want to try doing other styles with my hair other then just clipping it back or putting it half up. I really loved how it took half the time to curl my hair as compared to when it was longer. I still need to improve my skills in the back but that always seems to be a struggle.

Seeing as I haven’t owned a curling iron for several years as just mentioned I am not incredibly well informed in the world of hair tools,  but I am still knowledgeable enough to know whether something is decent or just plain sucks. Personally I was looking for something that was easy to use, curled my hair well and held the curl all day. I purchased this product from Target and yes the rose gold color was what initially drew me to this curling iron because if it’s rose gold I’ll take it. The price of this was also enough reason to buy this seeing as it’s under $20. This does have some mixed reviews some people enjoyed it while others were not very impressed. Some find the on/off switch to be a bad spot, but I didn’t have any issues with it. The iron heated up quickly and it was very easy to use. I found that  it easily curled my hair and held the curl all day. I am going to give this a few more tries before I make my final decision on whether or not it is a keeper.

What are some of your must have hair products? I wanna start taking better care of my hair, so share shampoos, conditioners, etc as well as tools like blow dryers.

Thanks for reading! xx

Hello!

Today I wanted to share a bunch of products I have been loving recently. I am just going to jump right into it because my brain is as fried as an egg in the hot summer sun thanks to the end of the school year coming to a close next week. Let me know what products you’ve been loving lately.

Makeup/ Perfume, and Lotion
Mascara: CoverGirl Peacock Flare Mascara and Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara
I purchased both of these mascaras from Tj Maxx a couple weeks ago, and I won’t lie the first thing I love about these products is the price. These each cost under $5.00, and there were so many popular mascara brands (mainly drugstore)  so if you want to buy good makeup at a discount go to Tj Maxx. Both of these provide great volume, length and 
definition. I do think the Max Factor doesn’t clump lashes as much as the Covergirl one, but the latter is still really good too.

Foundation: Revlon ColorStay for Combo/Oily Skin and Wet N Wild Photo Focus
I love using both of these individually but then one day I decided to mix them together and hello, game changer or better yet amazing coverage that last all day. Seriously I have never been one to mix foundations, but after trying these two on a whim I’m kinda hooked now. Are you a foundation mixer?

Lipstick: Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick
I’ve talked about this in several past post, so I wont be to repetitive since I’ve shared my love of this lipstick more than once. I’ll just keep it simple with my feelings on it: great variety of colors, long lasting, and moisturizing.

Perfume:Garden Grove Perfume  I have never been a perfume wearer, but that has changed since using this one. I usually find perfume scents overpowering or I just don’t like how to smells, but this one is simple I don’t know how else to describe it. It’s not strong. It’s just a good everyday scent.

Hand Lotion: Pretty as a Peach Ever since having a horrible reaction to another lotion that required a steroid shot, prescription lotion, and doctors visits my hands have been terribly dry and I’ve been incredibly weary about what lotions I use, but thankfully this on doesn’t bother my skin and it’s perfect to keep in my handbag to use throughout the day. I also have the hand-sanitizer in the same scent.

Body Scrub, Tanning Moisturizer, Body Wash, Hand Soap/Lotion
Body Scrub: I bought this at Ross a year back and honestly I am not sure where to search for it online, I’m sure it’s on Amazon, but I still wanted to share this product because I really like it. I use this before I apply my tanning moisturizer and it helps keep my skin from getting overly dry.

Tanning Moisturizer: Jergens Daily Body Moisturizer and Jergens Daily Facial 
I’ve never been one to use fake tan whether it be spray tans or lotions since I am naturally tan, but I wanted to speed up my summer tan so I decided to try this moisturizer and I really like it. I find it a lot less intimidating than fake tan because it’s a gradual tan instead of all at once, so I don’t fear I am going to over do it.

Body Wash: Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash
I’m such a lover of Dove products from their bar soap to their deodorant. I use the deodorant everyday and have used this body wash everyday since buying it. Aside from smelling amazing without being overpowering, this leaves my skin feeling so incredibly smooth. I just feel so clean after using it.

Hand Care Duo: Pecksniffs Apricot and JoJoba Duo (I got this from Tj Maxx & this is the official site so it isn’t in American Currency) Is getting excited about good smelling hand soap and adult thing or just a weird thing? Seriously (I know I’ve used that word a lot), but seriously this stuff smells so delicious and both the soap and lotions are very moisturizing.

Skincare
Facial Cleanser: Garnier SkinActive Cleanser+Mask and Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser
Both of these products were rediscoveries because they sat in my basket of products I don’t use for a while and then I ran out of the cleanser I was using, so I decided to pull these two back out. I use the Garnier one more as a mask than a cleanser but they work well both ways and the Neutrogena Cleanser is really good too. With school coming to a close stress is high so I need stress cleansers, soaps, sprays everything!

Serum: Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum
I don’t say this about many things, but this is 100% worth every penny and I will repurchase it over and over again. Any acne flare up I have I will apply this right to the spot and my morning the spot has gone down significantly and within 24 hours it’s greatly minimized or gone.

Makeup Remover: Garnier SkinActive Sulfate Free Cleanser
This is another rediscovery and something I pulled out of my basket of products I’m not using. Don’t get me wrong I love the Take it Away Remover from Estee Lauder, but this is just as good and it’s over 1/2 the price. I love that it’s a cleanser and remover in one so on nights where I’m being lazy and don’t wanna do a full cleaning routine, my skin still feels clean after using this.

Haircare
Shampoo and Conditioner: L’Oreal EverPure Repair and Defender
I am not one to rave about a shampoo and conditioner duo, but this stuff is so dang amazing. I don’t remember the last time a shampoo or conditioner let alone both have left my hair feeling so soft, free of tangles and frizz, and silky looking.

Hair mask: Eva Nyc Therapy Session Hair Mask
Over the past few months I have started to become a bit more serious about caring for my hair and taking better care of it. I haven’t used styling tools for over 4 years. Not that I think they are bad but because I’m too lazy to use them. Anyways I don’t have to worry about heat protection from damaging of tools, but I still want to keep my hair looking clean and feeling clean between washes, so I have been testing out hair mask and this is one of my favorites. It can also be used as a everyday conditioner which I like. Either way it leaves my hair feeling silky, smooth and run your fingers through it soft.

And that is everything I have been loving. If you have read this far, thanks for sticking till the end I hope you enjoyed it!

Let me know what things are on your it list right now!
