So a description of my hair.. It is very very fine... Coloured dark brown... It was blonde back in September/10... I dyed it brown in October/10.. It faded so I dyed it brown again in November/10 and then I dyed it AGAIN in December/10 (brown again of course)... So it's pretty damaged. This shampoo makes my hair super soft and lets my waves dry nicely. It doesn't completely get rid of the frizz but it helps a lot!! My hair feels healthier and looks healthier. I'm dying my hair dark brown again soon and I will update my review on whether or not this shampoo keeps my colour strong!
We use and sell this polish brand at the spa I work at, and I really love it!! I bought Marrow for myself and omg, amazing.. Such a deep sexy purple, and like mentioned before, the very micro shimmer only shows up in the sun or bright light, but that's okay. It goes on perfectly with two coats, it isn't too thick or thin, and goes amazingly well with my Seche Vite base and top coat! Definitely get this colour if you can!
Cleansers -Neostrata - Multi-Activ Cleansing Milk 4 in 1
sabrunka 8/18/2010 9:55:00 PM
So far, so good. I generally don't like milk cleansers, and that's why I gave it an overall rating of a 4. It works VERY well though to remove make up (including eye make up, it doesnt sting!!!) and it leaves my skin moisturized without adding extra oil to it. I like that it doesn't "disappear" from my skin once I start rubbing it on, because some milk cleansers do that and then it feels like I'm washing my face with water because there's no slip! I will most likely purchase it again, I don't have any reason not to, other than it being a milk!
Styling Products -Sexy Hair Concepts - Root Pump Plus

So people using this and saying it doesn't work probably arent using it properly. I dont put it right in my roots where I keep my part, I lift hair on both sides of my part and spray it in there, then rub it in with my hands, and blowdry with a round brush and I'm left with great volume! You can also rub your hands under the hair where you applied the root pump and it re-plumps your hair. I have fine fine hair btw and I know this one is meant for thicker hair, but I like how this one works stronger and better!
Tinted Moisturizer -Guerlain - Terracotta Teint d'Ailleurs Tinted Moisturizer
sabrunka 5/22/2010 7:14:00 PM
Gorgeous, GORGEOUS tinted moisturizer! The smell is phenomenal and the texture is great!! The colour is also very natural on my fair skin (I got the blonde shade). It looks so good and blends in perfectly!! Definitely buy this if you are looking for a tinted moisturizer!
So far, I love this toner! The smell is great and it leaves my skin feeling refreshed and healthy. All I do is spray two sprays into my hands, rub together, then pat onto my face. I find that by spraying directly on the face, you miss a lot of spots or spray on more than necessary.
Treatments (Eye) -Ole Henriksen - African Red Tea Visual Truth Eye Cream
sabrunka 5/19/2010 11:39:00 PM
So far so good, this is a nice thick moisturizing eye cream which doesn't leave my eyes greasy. I don't know how well it does for fine lines yet since it's my first day using it, but I will review again in a month for an update. It also smells yummy!
Moisturizers -Ole Henriksen - African Red Tea Express The Truth Face Cream
sabrunka 5/19/2010 11:37:00 PM
So far so good, I like the effect this has on my skin. Absorbs very quickly and moisturizes well. My skin is very happy with it!! I will review again in a month or so to let you know if there's anything else good or bad about it! ALSO it smells like creamsicles, so tasty!!
Cleansers -Ole Henriksen - African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser
sabrunka 5/19/2010 11:34:00 PM
I really like this cleanser!! It stays foamy which is amazing, I hate foaming cleansers which, well... Don't stay foamy. It removed my make up with ease, but stung when I got a bit in my eye (which is why you shouldn't go in the eye area, but I did anyways). I have normal skin which is slightly dehydrated and I really like the effect it left on my skin :). Definitely will repurchase!
Alright so I have normal skin, no oily skin at all... But I do have some blackheads on my nose and on my chin just under my lower lip. I apply a bit of this oil to damp skin in those areas, let it absorb.. Then apply Clarins Gentle Peeling Exfoliant over top.. Let that sit for a few mins until dry, then I rub it off and my blackheads come right out... Not all of them come out the first time, but over time more and more come out!! It's AMAZING, it's the first item I've ever found a product that WORKS on removing blackheads and doesn't damage the skin! Amazing product when paired with Gentle Peeling Exfoliant!
Lipstick -Christian Dior - Rouge Dior 475 Pink Preview
sabrunka 4/22/2010 3:07:00 PM
Wow, I have found my HG lipstick!!! FINALLY! It is the most perfect hot pink ever. It is great for summer and winter and looks amazing with my skin tone. I almost always pair it with Smashbox's Reflection lipgloss and it turns into the most gorgeous shiny pink pout you could ever imagine. I am so sad to hear that it is discontinued.. I'm going to have to try and collect as many as I can before they all disappear!!! BUY IT THOUGH IF YOU FIND ONE!! They are FANTASTIC!
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Purple Velvet
sabrunka 3/20/2010 12:13:00 PM
Gorgeous lip colour!! It can be very dark, depending how you apply, but the way I do it is just use a lipbrush and apply a medium amount and it leaves my lips a dark red, but not too dark.. It lasts FOREVER and applying it with a lip brush really is the key!! You can define the lips and make them look gorgeous :) I noticed that feathering around my upper lip occured but it wasn't too bad... That was a hint that I should use liner lol. And finally, today was the first day actually wearing mine in public becuase I thought people would find it to be "too much", but I actually got a few compliments!! Great colour, definitely try it though (if you can) before you buy it, because it may be too much for you!
My goodness, I had this sitting in my cupboard for probably half a year, I completely forgot about it!! Took it out and used it yesterday and wow, what have I been missing!! Made my hair shiny, and SO SOFT. Extremely soft!! And not the greasy kind of soft!! My hair is very fine and flat and coloured dark brown, and this stuff did not weigh it down, nor does my hair look greasy the day after (today). Definitely try this out!
Alright so far so good, I will update my review if something bad happens with the can. It works very well and does give me volume and helps get rid of the small amount of oil I have the day after washing. I find it smells nice and it works very well. It left a bit of a white residue in my hair, but after working it in, it disappeared. Overall, I love it so far. My hair was flat and just a tad oily so I decided to finally try it. I gave it a very good, long shake and sprayed away. I didnt need too much and it worked very well. I just hope it doesn't clog on me!
Shampoo -Wen by Chaz Dean - Cleansing Conditioners - All

This review is for the cucumber aloe cleansing conditioner. My hair is VERY fine, has no volume, and gets oily easily. This is an amaazzingg cleanser and thoroughly cleanses the hair without residue! Hair looks good when air dried but AMAZING when blow dried using the cucumber aloe styling cream as well. Hair is soft, flowy, light and full of volume!! It is AMAZING, I will use this forever now, the results are just phenomenal :D I'm such a happy camper! I've used many many shampoos and conditioners and styling products but this line, cucumber aloe, is by far the best for my hair type! EDIT... It seemed to be wonderful, until about 1-2 months after using it, the build up on my hair was ATTROCIOUS and nasty!!! And my hair would be greasy just after it would dry from the shower!! This shampoo is OK, but definitely rotate with other shampoos that actually foam up so that the residue is removed.. Yuck.
