    Suave Kids Double Dutch Apple Detangling Spray

    My daughter & I couldn't live without this!

    My daughter has very fine, straight hair. We bathe her almost every night, and every night we wash and blow dry her hair. It looks perfect. But, somehow while that child is sleeping something crazy happens to her beautiful hair. I don’t know what she does in her sleep to create what appears to be a rat’s nest, but every morning it is there. And, every morning it must be dealt with in a manner that doesn’t lead to screaming and crying. (Because let’s be honest, this bedhead look is only appropriate for “80′s Rocker” Day, and they don’t have too many of those in Miss Beth’s preschool class.) Thank goodness for Suave Kids Twirlin’ Swirlberry Soft & Smooth Detangler. I spray it all over her hair, but focus mainly on the tangles and knots in the back of her head. I cross my fingers and start brushing. Of course, there are a few “ouches” and “Mommy that hurts” along the way, but we get through it and her hair looks beautiful.

  • Benefit They're Real! Mascara

    This is a great, long-lasting mascara, but what I didn't like about this product is the before and after photo on the package leads you to believe that it will make your lashes look like false lashes. Not so much. I did my own before and after photos, which you can see if you visit my site, Pretty Proof.

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Clearing Facial Wash

    The Body Shop Tea Tree Clearing Facial Wash

    The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash Review

    I was very excited to try this facial wash. Of course, I always get excited when I think a product might get rid of any blemishes I have and prevent me from having to deal with blemishes in the future. Plus, I liked the fact that it contained tea tree oil. I used the Body Shop’s Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash daily. I liked how clean it made my skin feel. So I was hopeful that because of how clean my skin was with this cleanser that it would take care of any zits on my face. But, despite the impressive cleaning abilities of this wash, it had no impact on my blemishes. Unfortunately, my current blemishes didn’t clear up any faster with this product and I still broke out even with continued use of this product.

  • Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser
    5.0

    Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser

    All facial cleansers are not created equal.

    I tried the Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser several times. As you can imagine, it is very greasy. I rubbed it over my entire face, including my eyes, hoping to remove all of the makeup and dirt. I then wiped my skin off with a tissue, as directed. This method pulled my skin, especially around the delicate eye area. The tissue was covered in makeup and dirt, which is what I expected. However, the Albolene failed to remove my mascara, which wasn't even waterproof. And, the rest of my skin still felt dirty and greasy. Even though the directions don't say to rinse, I decided I had to rinse off my skin. I could see the oil-based product in the water going down the drain. (Over time I would think this would build up in your drain and possibly cause clogging.) After rinsing with water, my skin felt cleaner and still moisturized so I did not use any moisturizer. If I was short on time and didn't want the benefits of an additional moisturizer, Albolene would be a good choice. But, I prefer a cleanser that doesn't require using a tissue to remove dirt and makeup. This method stretches and pulls delicate skin. Plus, some dirt and makeup is still left behind. Albolene may leave the skin hydrated enough that additional moisturizers are not needed, but it does not contain beneficial anti-aging ingredients.

  • Alterna Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray
    10.0

    Alterna Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray

    48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray rocks!

    My hair is very fine so I am always looking for products that will give it more volume, lift, and life. I was very skeptical when I saw the claim on the bottle about "clinically proven to instantly increase volume by 105%." Not to mention, it is supposed to last 48 hours! I thought to myself this is a perfect product to test and validate. It is expensive, but if it works I'll be ecstatic. I have shoulder length hair so I sprayed this product approximately 12-14 times from root to tip throughout my hair and then blow dried as I normally would. I could tell a difference in the fullness and thickness of my hair instantly! Not only that, this product held the style of my hair better than other volumizers I have tried. Whether I was curling my hair under or flipping it up with some curls, the Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray kept the style and volume in place better and longer than any other product I have tried. And, to top it off, my hair was soft, not hard or sticky. It looked healthy, shiny, and full - what more could I ask for? Nothing! Thank you, Alterna! Thank you for making a product that does everything for those of us who weren't born with thick hair. Your Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray rocks! Too bad I'm in the business of testing products or I would only use this spray. But, on days that I want a guaranteed good hair day, I'll be using Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray.
