This summer I receive an invitation from @CrowdTap to try a kid's hair care set from Suave. I am very familiar with their products and have used several with good results so I thought I would get my son the FREE set to test.
His shipment included the Shea Butter 3in1 Shampoo, Conditioner and . It also contained the Marigold Detangler as well. The 3in1 product comes in a pump so it's very easy for him to dispense and was even easier to fit in our bathroom shower caddy. The scent is perfect for boys and girls and leaves his hair feeling soft and manageable. The Marigold products works wonders for curly or longer hair as well! The @Suave brand is reasonably price and easy to find most places you purchase hair care products.
Four times a year I make it my business to explore what's new in the beauty world and shop for products that are innovative and effective. My skin care needs definitely change depending on the seasons and my favorite brands are always improving the products they offer. This autumn I was able to find goodies for my hair, skin, lips and face.
Let's dig into my haul a bit....
One of my standard go to products are facial sheet masks. I find that when I use them once a week as recommended my skin stays hydrated until the next application. I selected a single @Garnier SkinActive mask and a five pack of an Acai mask.
For my lips I tried a few new goodies including a @HudaBeauty lip kit and a @Sephora Favorites kit. The packaging on each of these kits were really eye catching and display worthy! I also threw in 27 MORE lip products, including a beautiful @Armani lipstick. Obsess much??
The first thing I used from this haul was a @Garnier hair mask. I bought three but the scent that called to me most was the Banana Strengthening Mask. This product smoothes and strengthens my hair while leaving it smelling fresh and fruity.
I also tried the Wish website which has tons of items makeup, personal care and home items that are majorly discounted. I purchased a reinforced undergarment and some beauty blenders from this site which both worked well.
Finally, I rounded out my beauty binge with some @NYXCosmetics eyeshadow pencils, @Loreal blushes, and @Redken hair care products. I made some good finds and stocked up on my staples as well.
Which of these would you like to try? Leave a comment with the product you want and you'll be entered for a giveaway ;)
One of my favorite pastimes is having a healthy beauty binge and discovering all the available products that will meet my personal care needs. My spring beauty binge, this year, bought me several goodies for the spring and summer seasons.
I started with picking out some @Garnier hair care products. Their Whole Blends line contains natural ingredients that help my hair remain healthy and hydrated. I opted for the Honey Treasures shampoo and conditioner, specialized to strengthen and heal damaged locks. I also bought the Avocado Oil and Shea Butter version for the restoration of dry hair.
I also grabbed a month's supply of face masks from @Garnier. All of their masks are designed to moisturize skin by at a minimum, by using hyaluronic acid, but they also contain additional ingredients targeted for specific skin concerns. For May, I picked up the Glow Boosting, Super Hydrating, Mattifying and Anti-Fatigue masks. The transition from winter to spring can wreak havoc on my skin and these products definitely help.
@Redken offers an All Soft Mega Recovery Tissue Mask Cap is "infused with a superfood nutri-complex of cactus extract, aloe vera and Sacha Inchi Oil to hydrate, strengthen, and to lock in moisture all day long." This product is intended to be used once a week for maximum results. While browsing the @Redken section I grabbed a bag filled with several other hair care products.
I have been having a love affair with @NYXCosmetics and their City Sets, which contains an eye shadow quad, two blushes and a lip color to complete the look. New York came home with me after this trip to join the other featured cities in my collection. See the NYX blog post here.
I also snagged a set of Velvet Matte Lipsticks from @NYXCosmetics so I can create ombre lip looks (using their City Sets) which are currently all the rage!
No beauty binge is complete without a few high end goodies for my collection. @GiorgioArmani has a phenomenal beauty line which includes everything from primer to powder. In my quest to create not only the ombre look, but other fun lip color combinations, I bought two of their lipsticks in the matte formula as well.
@LorealUSA brand products always find their way into my beauty binge outing and @Maybelline The City Mini Palettes made an appearance too! I can't wait to try the Graffiti Pop featuring an brilliant blue.

It’s no secret that I’ve had grey hair since I was 19. I used to think of it as a sign of maturity and wisdom as a young adult. It even gave me early access to clubs before I was officially 21.....many moons ago.
Now that many of my peers have joined me on my many "shades of grey" journey, I’ve begun coloring my hair. It’s not that I feel I look any older but I have found that my grey hair isn’t as compliant as their dark brown counterparts so imagine my excitement when I was asked to join the FREE @ClariolColor Root Touch-Up campaign by @Influenster. This trusted beauty brand now has a NEW temporary hair powder for girls like me (and maybe you) to use to cover roots between hair coloring appointments. As an added bonus you can use this product on your eyebrows for extra definition, since it's not permanent you can easily wash away any mistakes so #colorconfidently with @ClariolColor!
My kit arrived last week and I'll be using it this weekend so check back for before and after pictures soon. Until then leave your grey stories below ;)
My application was approved and now I'm looking for my FREE @LOrealParisUSA Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil kit to arrive!!!
