Product Review: Airmotion Hair Brush & Tangle Teaser

  These are my go to tools for brushing my tangled, wet hair. The Airmotion Hair Brush can be used on wet or dry hair.  You can find it on Amazon for about $20.

June Favorites

  Much loved (and very worn) June Favorites! Pureology Pure Volume Shampoo: I absolutely love this shampoo and will definitely keep buying it.  It’s taking me months to get through this giant bottle.  It’s from the pink range for fine, color-treated hair and I love the way by hair styles after I use it.  Pureology is also a vegan brand.  Available in salons and Ulta. Ojon Dry Recovery Revitalizing Moisture

Product Review: PMD Personal Microderm

  Finally, we’re able to save a little money on microdermabrasion sessions at the salon with the PMD Personal Microderm.  I’ve been testing this out for three months now and only have good things to say.  If you’ve got some stubborn hyper pigmentation and/or scars, it’s well worth the $179.00 investment to add this to your overall treatment plan. The kit also comes with an attachment for use on the

Product Review: Bobbi Brown Corrector and Creamy Concealer

  I’ve been using these two products for over three months now and have a pretty good impression overall. Creamy Concealer Kit: I started out using this under my eyes as it claims to hide dark circles and brighten but I really had to blot it in and it sat in my fine lines.  I’m sure it’s brilliant on younger skin.  However, I do like it as a general concealer

Product Review: Olia Hair Color & Vintage Cookbooks!

  Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color by Garnier: This is now my absolute favorite drugstore hair color.  I love it.  It claims to be infused with flower oils and my hair responds well to much needed moisture.  The color is vivid and applies evenly.  My hair was shiny and lasted a good 3 weeks before I needed a touch up.  $9.99 at Ulta or other drugstores.   Cookbooks have long been
