Shampoo - Living Proof - Perfect hair Day (PhD)

Feb/20/2017

REFERENCE: My hair is like Jennifer Aniston's in appearance: long, straight, fine, and blonde; and, very full--I have a lot. Don't know about Jennifer's, but my hair is normal to oily.

This shampoo is the best thing that's happened to me this week! This is one of only two shampoos that I've found that doesn't irritate my skin. But, it's …

UPDATE: 7/13/2018 This powder is my answer to the question, "If you could have only one makeup product for the rest of your life, what would it be?" But, alas... Too Faced has discontinued it :( My former review stands--I'm STILL loving this powder! So, I'm buying it up cheap from Nordstrom Rack (~$15) while I still can. I'm sad to see this one go... …Read more

I bought Soft Raspberry (SR) as a cheaper alternative to NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien. SR has less shimmer than Rikugien, but they are VERY similar. Only disappointment in the SR is the weird scent it has, but it doesn't last long. I can put up with the rapidly disappearing fragrance for the lovely color/formula at an affordable price!

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Oleo Therapy Oil Infused Shampoo

5.0

Aug/07/2016

A VERY gentle shampoo. I like to mix a smaller dollop of Oleo Therapy (OT) with a larger dollop of Suave Clarifying Shampoo to create a wonderful shampoo that both cleans and moisturizes. Makes my hair shiny and bouncy. Used alone, OT doesn't get my hair clean enough; but, that's just because I don't have dry hair (which is what it is formulated for). My hair is normal to oily …Read more

All-time favorite shampoo. Super gentle formula.

REFERENCE: Super sensitive skin. Fine, long, straight, virgin blonde hair--lots of it.

SUMMER use method: Use as is. Or, maybe use a little leave-in conditioner on the ends afterwards.

WINTER use method: Mix with a couple drops of jojoba oil for a more hydrating, moisturizing shampoo that doesn't weigh my …

This is my new favorite conditioner. (I use the shampoo as well. See my review on that.)

REFERENCE: I have fine, normal to oily, long, straight, blonde hair--and, lots of it. I also have super sensitive skin so I have to be REALLY careful about the products I use. I have to avoid harsh chemicals, many essential oils and strong fragrances.

MOISTURIZES WITHOUT WEIGHING …

Brows - L'Oreal Paris - Brow Stylist Definer

LOVE this amazing little brow pencil for TWO main reasons:

1) COLOR MATCH. I am a natural blonde. Finding a color match can be tricky. My brows are darker than my hair. They are a taupe-y or light mouse-y brown color. The BLONDE shade matches perfectly!!

WARNING: Do not judge the pencil color by the eyebrow drawn near the bottom of the package. The actual pencil …

Feb/04/2016

How many times have you used a so-called *gentle* shampoo only to find your hair not so very clean afterwards? It's like the makers are so focused on making it gentle, they forget the shampoo still has to remove oil and styling products. This shampoo actually seems to be a gentle but effective shampoo. That's why I'm singing its praises!

REFERENCE: I have long …
