Review: Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil

Retail Price: $5.99

Up for review today is the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil. It is a oil treatment to provide nourishment with Olive, Avocado, and Shea oils. Unlike most products, this can be used not only on your hair, but also on the face and body as well. This is a great product for the gal on the go, or those who love multi purpose products!  It absorbs quickly into the skin and hair and doesn't leave any residue. For your hair, you can use it before styling, and it will give it a healthy looking boost with a little bit of shine without making your hair greasy. 

I tend to use this at night before going to bed, and I saturate my scalp with it, as well as the rough patches of skin on my face and body. I get great results using it this way! I also use it as a massage oil when I am relaxing and unwinding from a long day.

It is packaged in a great spray bottle, which is easy to handle and grip. See thru bottle so you can easily see how much product you have. 

My only complaint is the smell. It has a very natural oil smell to it, which may not bother some, but for me, I just don't like it. If the formula was changed and had a different fragrance, I would be very pleased!

If you are interested in purchasing this product, it can be found at Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Hannaford and at various online retailers. 

Pros: Great design, genious product idea, hydrates, absorbs quickly, multi purpose, easily available. 

Cons: Smells bad.

Review: Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

Retail Price: $6.00

Today I am reviewing the Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. 

If you have flat, boring hair, then this product is definitely for you. This spray gives your hair a boost of texture, volume, and sexiness. I have fine hair, which is always hard to add volume into, without having to load up on massive amounts of products and numerous tools. After using just 4 sprays all around my head, I had sexy beach babe looking hair, with lots of volume and texture. I absolutely love the look that this gives my hair. I have added this now as a staple in my daily hair routine. I am hooked!

Oh and the scent, it has a very nice tropical beachy scent, which is to die for. It makes my hair smell amazing! 

If you would like to purchase this item, it can be found at Walmart, Target, Ulta, Walgreens, Urban Outfitters, CVS Pharmacy and at various online retailers. 

Pros: Great design, great product, does exactly what it claims, leaves my hair looking volumized, and sexy!

Cons: None

Review: Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid

Retail Price: $12.99

Today I am reviewing the Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid cleansing system. This system includes 2 items, a Olay power brush to help deep clean the skin. And it also a shine minimizing cleanser cream.

Alright, so lets start with the cleanser. This product super rich and luxurious. It goes on the skin so softly, it only needs a little bit of water to get a nice rich lather. The whole experience while using this product is wonderful. It makes the skin feel amazing while on, and it makes it feel silky smooth and clean when it comes off. I really enjoy this product, and it is definitely something I will be purchasing and adding to my skincare routine.

Okay, onto the the power brush. It has a easy to operate power switch on the handle. Turn it on and the entire brush pulsates. Easily fits into your hand, and has a nice grip even when wet. The head of the brush is triangle shaped, so it can easily work into the hard to reach spots of your faces. As you can see by the photo I posted below, it has rubber bristles, which I don't find to really do anything as far as deep cleaning the skin. I think that if the bristles were different material, and smaller, it would be a great deep cleaning brush. It does however give a nice massage on the skin, which helps bring blood flow to your face, thus creating a youthful glow, which in turn gives you the Fresh Effects look. So for me, I still quite enjoy it. 

If you would like to purchase this item, it can be found at Walmart, Target, and at various online retailers. 

Pros: Great design, great product, leaves skin feeling amazing and clean, easy to use.

Cons: Brush bristles don't work as far as "deep cleaning", but it does work to massage the face, and bring blood flow to the face, thus creating a nice healthy glow.
