Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment

Hey guys! It’s the second day of June! What are you looking forward to today? Mine is the start of a nice weekend of course! But I’m also counting down the days until USPS puts up the Andrew Wyeth stamps up for pre-order on their website. I love using different stamps every time when writing to my pen pals. But anyway, today’s post is on a product I got from my ipsy March 2017 Glam Bag. Here’s my thoughts on the Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment.

What I love about this product? It’s easy to use and comes in the standard tube packaging that some hair products come in. Packaging is quite attractive with the choice of colors. Scent is quite pleasant although not close to being real jasmine in my opinion. The product itself has a very light tint of blue to my eyes (but it could be my bathroom lighting). It works good as a hair conditioner but that’s it really. When I say that I mean that it felt like it performed as well as a regular hair conditioner. It’s readily available online and in several retail locations worldwide. Pricing isn’t bad at all especially if you catch these on sale from either online or retail locations that carry it.

What I don’t like about this product? The main thing would be that I expected it to perform like other deep conditioners I’ve used. This is basically like any other regular hair conditioner to me. It did feel great with the slip that it gives my hair when in the shower but so does a lot of regular hair conditioners. I expected my hair to be extra soft afterwards and it wasn’t there really. It didn’t make a difference whether I let my hair air dry or blow dried it with a hair dryer. Now while this didn’t work for me doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t work for you. I’ve read other reviews online that gave this product stellar ratings. It just didn’t work for me.

ipsy May 2017 Glam Bag

Hey y’all! How as this month for you guys? It just flew right on by for me. I know I didn’t get to post much but better late than never! Here’s my take on the ipsy May 2017 Glam Bag.

ipsy May 2017 Glam Bag

The bag is very cute and useful for summer! It’s the perfect size to toss in summer essentials like sunscreen, hair ties and lip balm. First item that caught my eye is the Briogeo Rosarco Milk™ Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray. I’m really into leave-in conditioners during the summer season especially if I’m swimming a lot. Next up is the IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. I have a lot of mascaras open right now but I’ll save it for later. The shade I got this in is Black. Then we have Urban Decay Afterglow. The shade I got this in is Sin. While I like this brand, I don’t really have a need for highlighter but I know one of my nieces uses it so I’ll pass this on to her. Next we have the Starlooks Artist Edition – Luxe Longwear Star Stamp + Liner Pen. I wish that they just gave more product instead of putting the cost towards the star stamp end. I don’t really see a use for it except for Halloween or a night out maybe. It’s not something I’d sport everyday (unless I’m Rainbow Brite!). Last up is Caked Makeup Lip Fondant. The shade I got this in is Low Key.

Overall, I think taking the quiz again helped. I liked this month’s offerings better than last month (which I didn’t even bother to blog about). I hope they keep it up for next month!


Walmart Spring 2017 Beauty Box

So I actually almost forgot I have this beauty box subscription until an email asked if I wanted to switch it up for something special or stay with whatever setting I have already made in my account. I didn’t want to mess with it so I opted to just stay with my current setting. This popped in my mailbox about a week ago. Here’s what I got in my Walmart Spring 2017 Beauty Box.

Overall, pretty good stuff. In fact, as soon as I saw the lip product I knew that I had to give it to my sister from another mister Renuky. 🙂 It became part of her flip book goodies, which by the way is so much fun to make and hers is the first one I’ve given out so far. I made one for her birthday. 🙂 The shade seems light enough to suit her especially with it being a lip gloss. The first thing I’m trying out is the whitening toothpaste as we’ve been using regular whitening toothpaste and I’m not really seeing any difference so it’s time to change it up!

ipsy March 2017 Glam Bag

Hey y’all! I just got this in the mail 2 days ago and am about to start using some of what I got. Here’s my take on the ipsy March 2017 Glam Bag.

The bag looks quite cute — like a beehive pattern! And it’s bigger than past ipsy bags, which I like a lot. But the material is prone to snagging for me so we’ll see if I’m going to actually use it or not. First item that caught my eye is the theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer. I LOVE the cute packaging they always have! This is a keeper for me. Next up is the So Susan Blush & Glow. I will look up for reviews and swatches on this before I open it. The shade I got this in is called Rose Rust. Then we have Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment. I generally haven’t found anything from this brand that I dislike so I’ll be trying this out shortly and post my review on it. Next we have the JeNu High Tech Beauty Marine Collagen Mineral Gel. This is the type of product I’m looking for these days. I already started using it today. I put it on before I apply moisturizer. Last up is The Skone Cosmetics Luxe Pro Blending Brush. I retook the quiz again on ipsy as I thought I’ve said before that I didn’t want more makeup brushes yet I keep getting them still. This one goes into my extra random gifting pile.

Curtain Call: Schwarzkopf essence ULTÎME Diamond Color & Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner

Hey, hey! Quick late night post here with an edition of Curtain Call! I recently finished up something I got from the Walmart Summer 2016 Beauty Box. Here’s my take on the Schwarzkopf essence ULTÎME Diamond Color & Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner.

Schwarzkopf essence ULTÎME Diamond Color & Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner

What I love about this product? I didn’t have super high hopes for this product really as it’s just shampoo and conditioner. I did try to look out for things that will make it stand out as the market for this type of products is oversaturated already. The scent surprised me a little — it’s not very feminine at all. It’s not floral, fruity, earthy or clean. It’s slightly more masculine, at least according to my nose. It makes me think of a manly fragrance in a good way but not overpowering at all, especially when my hair is dry. If this is a concern, know that the scent fades away a lot as the day goes on after it’s dry. The formula is what I have come to expect of from a regular shampoo and conditioner really and it does the job — it cleans my hair very well.

What I don’t like about this product? No complaints over here at all. While it doesn’t have any earth-shattering properties that makes it stand out from other shampoos and conditioners, it does the job and it does it well.
