Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream

4.27.2013

Moroccanoil's Hydrating Styling Cream was a huge favorite of mine a few years back, but curiosity got the best of me and I strayed.

Moroccanoil... I'm here to say, with blog as my witness, I cheated on you. I had a wandering eye. And I am sorry.


I recently busted this out again (had about 1/2 the bottle left when I stopped using it the first time) and have been LOVING the results it's had on my hair. Maybe it's the shorter hair, maybe the dead ends having been chopped off... but I doubt it. I had been using strictly oils on my hair since my big chop off a while back and the results were nothing like the extreme softness and lack of frizz I was see with this product left in my wet hair to air dry.

Thankfully, beauty products aren't like boyfriends -- so you won't catch me sobbing the lyrics to Katy Perry's "One That Got Away" into a carton of Ben and Jerry's anytime soon (Americone Dream or Late Night Snack, duh!).. just needed a little dust off from the back of the cabinet and we're good to go.

REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

4.20.2013

REN's Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask has been receiving rave reviews for months now anddd because I'm a brainwashed beauty junkie sheep, I had to get my grubby little hands on it.

So what do I think...? I love it!

When I first tried this mask from little sample packets, I was nonplussed. I'd heard positive reviews from every corner of the internet and was unrealistically expecting a wonder product. Muh bad. Can't blame something for not meeting up to my unrealistic expectations. This mask ain't Jesus, y'all; so don't get it twisted. Part of me felt like the sample packets could have just been old (they were at least a year old that I knew of), so I wanted to test out a fresh version before I wrote off a product everyone seemed to love.

I decided to pull the trigger on a full sized bottle during a sale (score!) and started using it weekly, much to my boyfriend's chagrin. According to him, I look "scary" and "like [I'm] melting," with an occasional "Ahh, what is wrong with your face" peppered in for good measure. Always a charmer, that one. Each time I moved past his kind words of encouragement and removed the mask, I consistently found my skin feeling new and refreshed -- baby's bottom softness was finally mine! With no irritation or stinging during or post-application, to boot!

In summary, I believe this to be a high quality mask that delivers. So long as it doesn't burst your budget, I believe this mask to be worth the $55 price tag, and especially so if you can scoop it up for a discount during a sale.

Aurelie Bidermann Open Cobs Wheat Ring

4.09.2013

One of my favorite blogs/people to pretend I'm IRL friends with in a delusional, internet loser sort of way is Carlye of Awkward City. Not only does she do my VERY favorite GIRLS recaps, but every once in a while she will post a juicy money saving/extreme couponing tidbit. And you KNOW my exploitative little heart loves those... first, how to get tons of stuff for under $10 from Bumble & Bumble's website during Cyber Monday; and most recently, the heads up that Moda Operandi was essentially giving away $100 credit with no fine print. Enough said.

I browsed and browsed the site, looking for anything under $100 I could swing for free; but ended up settling with this gorgeous Aurelie Bidermann ring for a mere $20 -- no tax, no shipping costs, no a penny over $20! It came a few days later, wrapped in the most extravagant packaging (thank you Moda Operandi!), and I have never been prouder of an extreme couponing buy. Muahaha!!

Exhibit A: Savings.



Exhibit B: Beautiful.

 
Exhibit C: Instagram gorgeousness.
