Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Sun-Damage Daily Moisture Lotion SPF 28 Review

Share

Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Sun-Damage Daily Moisture Lotion SPF 28 ($10.15)

My Thoughts:

The Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Sun-Damage Daily Moisture Lotion SPF 28 is an anti-aging moisturizer. It’s suppose to protect your skin and help repair damages. What made me want to try this moisturizer was the promise of reducing the appearance of sunspots. It took me about 3 months of daily use to use up the whole bottle. Did I notice a difference with my skin’s appearance? Barely. The improvement was very minimal. As a daily moisturizer, I thought it was good. It wasn’t too thick or too thin. I also like that it has SPF and didn’t break me out. There is a scent, but it’s not overpowering. It smells a bit citrus-y. I also like that the bottle comes with a pump dispenser. It’s so much more sanitary and less messy than having to use your fingers to dig out the product from a jar. Would I repurchase? Probably not. I can find a better daily moisturizer that costs less.

Garnier Fructis Style Wonder Waves ($3.33) Your Perfect Wave has never been this easy!

. Controls, enhances and shapes natural waves
. Provides smooth definition, shine and frizz control
. Use anytime, anywhere to revive shape of waves

Hold Level: Flexible

My Thoughts:

I have really thick hair that just won’t hold a curl. I discovered Garnier Fructis Style Wonder Waves a couple of years ago, and it has been my answer to keeping my hair curly and/or wavy and frizz free.  All I do is spray each section of hair as I style it and the curl/wave stays put all day. The spray has a flexible hold. That means your hair won’t feel hard as a rock or have that crunchy look. It gives just enough hold so it leaves your hair looking and feeling natural. You don’t need to spray a lot for it to work. A couple of spritz is all you need.  If you’re looking for a product to hold your curls and waves all day, you have to try Garnier Fructis Style Wonder Waves.

ghd limited edition professional hairstyling iron Review

Share

ghd limited edition professional hairstyling iron ($205) The ghd flat iron is the mother of all flat irons. I have been eying this flat iron for a couple of years now and saving up. I bought this ghd limited edition professional hairstyling iron from beautyticket.com. Normally, ghd flat irons cost about $200-$250 depending on the model. Beautyticket was selling the model I bought for $119.99 which included everything you see in the picture: ghd flat iron, how-to dvd, and the pouch. I actually got it cheaper than $119.99 because beautyticket was running an extra 15% off gifts and sets promo. When I saw the amazing (and rare!) discount, I knew I had to pounce to get my hands on this bad boy. I ended up paying 50% of the original cost. The most I have ever seen the ghd discounted for was 20%. Even with the extra 20% off, it was still to expensive. Even though my version is from 2006, I didn’t care. A ghd is a ghd.

My Thoughts:

Pros:

  • Doesn’t just straighten hair. You can create curls and waves. How you ask? The hot plates move back and forth and up and down. Also the edges are rounded, not straight. This allows for smooth hair with no creases.
  • Heat resistant. No worries about burning your hand, scalp, forehead, etc. While it is on, you can touch the outside and not worry about getting burned!
  • Internally set temperature. It is automatically set at 374°F so you don’t  have to think about adjusting the temperature. It’s all set for you!
  • Ready to use in less than 1 minute. The flat iron heats up really quickly. No standing around for 5 minutes wondering and waiting for it to heat up.
  • Go over hair once. You only need to go over your hair once, rarely twice, to achieve the style you want. This will save you lots of time and saves your hair from damage.
  • No frizz or pouf. You will get sleek, silky, shiny, smooth hair.
  • Long power cord. The cord is 9ft long and swivels.
  • No snagging. When you run the straightner through your hair, it is a smooth pull with no tugging and snagging.
  • Sleep mode. It will turn off automatically if you don’t use it for 30 minutes. A wonderful safety feature.

Cons:

  • The cost!
  • The cost!
  • The cost!

To make sure you are buying a real ghd and not a fake, I would check out ghd’s UK site or ghd’s USA site. They have a list of legit sellers. If you’re unsure of a seller, give them a call and ask.

Givenchy Phenomen’ Eyes Mascara Review

Share

givenchy-phenomen-eyes-mascaraGivenchy Phenomen’ Eyes Mascara ($28) Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara perfectly curls and separates lashes. It has a high-tech, patented round sphere at the tip of the precision wand that reaches every lash and adapts to all eye shapes. It’s a Sephora exclusive. The result? A beautifully fanned-out panoramic effect, holding the curve of your lashes perfectly in place.

My Thoughts:

What a weird and scary looking mascara. I was at my beloved store, Sephora, when I spotted this bad boy. I had to try it! The SA that helped me apply the mascara (I had no idea how to use it), kept rambling on and on how wonderful this mascara was especially at voluminizing. The mascara did give me volume, but not enough volume for me to rave about it. The sphere brush did allow me to coat every lash, which I really liked. It separated my lashes too! Would I buy this mascara? No. I don’t think it’s worth $28. A $28 mascara should produce amazing results, not so-so results. It was also a pain to remove too.
