Product review 6/27

I have not done a product review in a long time. I have tried a few new things so I will share them with you.

When I go to my daughters, I like to bring products that I can just leave there. It makes packing to come home much easier. I used to bring only full products to her house to make sure that I had enough. I now just bring things I want to use up. It makes it much easier. I was going to bring Organix Cherry Blossom shampoo but I really did not have enough for a week. I figured I would just get a substitute and leave it there. I decided to try the Organix teatree mint line.

In general I really liked the product. I have to say, my hair tends to be on the dry side and I was using this every day. It did not really hydrate like it said it would. The first few days were great, I got great volume and my hair felt really clean. It was too drying for every day use. I think it was supposed to be like my Pureology hydrate but it did not hydrate like my pureology. For those of you with hair on the oily side, this would be a great product for you. I will definitely continue to use this product, just not every day. I did not end up leaving the product there because I did like it.

I bought this next product while I was at my daughters. I tend to just let my hair go au natural when I am there because of the humidity. I have wavy/curly in spots hair and I tried to get some more curl out of my hair by using this product.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease curl reviving mousse. Let me just say, I am not impressed. My hair is better off without it. It made my hair frizz. This product will be going in my daughters bathroom. Maybe I needed a leave in conditioner too? I dont know. I dont even really want to try it again.

Next up is TRESemme nourishing rituals liquid gold shine therapy. They were having a sale at Walgreens and I figured what the heck? Cant get enough moisture in the summer right? (Walgreens is just like Target , I cant go in and not spend for some reason)
I really liked this product. My hair was very bouncy and curled nicely. It is a conditioner. I did not find it too hydrating though. I may mix it with something else next time for more moisture. I have not used it enough to say I love it yet though.

The next product I am going to tell you about is not something new to me. Almay eyeshadow for your eyecolor. I love this product and have been using it for awhile. It really does enhance your eyecolor. I just had to buy a new one and they have either changed the packaging or have it in deeper colors too. I have A LOT of shadows and I always go back to this one. 4 days out of 7 I will probably be wearing these colors. It has a nice consistency and goes on nicely for a lower priced shadow.

 I want to talk about my favorite all time hairspray. Pureology Incharge Plus. I may or may not have mentioned it before (I am too lazy to check). I just had to get a new bottle. I think the last bottle I had  lasted me about a year because it has such a strong hold , you dont need much. It is great for summer if you spray it in before you curl. It makes the curl last. It is probably one of the strongest hold hairsprays I have ever used. I never use any other hairspray or even feel the need to buy something to try.

Last but not least, Tigi Wonderful Tonight Overnight Treatment. I love this stuff! I put it on the ends of my hair at night when I put my moisturizer on my face. I consider it moisturizer for the hair. It keeps my ends from being fried from all of the heat styling. I am almost out of it already. I need to go get some more. Only use it if you are washing your hair in the morning. It will definitely soften your ends.

As you can see, I have not tried too many new things. With the summer here I will be buying any new anti-frizz, moisturizing product that I can find. It happens every year. I love trying new products.


  1. Great reviews! Great stuff to know. It's nice to have reviews on things that you can buy at a Target or Walgreens and don't have to run out to Sephora or a specialty store like that. :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love Almay products - when I wear a pencil eyeliner - I will only use Almay Kohl. LOVE it.

    Tigi makes great products - I use Manipulator like no other - my hair is like a sponge! It sucks it up and never looks overly greasy - which is normally a complaint of everyone else who uses it. I will have to try Wonderful Tonight - maybe it will soften this post-chemo hay hair!

  3. 1. AHHH!!! I can comment!!!
    2. I LOVE pureology - their stuff is so good.
    3. I also love the Almay eye shadow - it's really good for a cheaper product, and they definitely do a good job of making the eyes pop!!

  4. Looks like I need to try the Tigi and the Pureology hairspray. Oh and the Almay shadow. Let me know when you find a good hydrating conditioner! I haven't yet :-(

  5. Great reviews!! I'm definitely going to try some of these!!

  6. Hi there. Found you on the Blog Hop. You have a great outlook on life and a good sense of humour it seems. I definitely want to try the Organix Teatree and Mint line. My Hair can get a bit oily so there shouldn't be any issues. I love those scents and have used Paul Mitchell's line before but they're just not organic or eco-friendly. Thanks for sharing.
