Suave Professional Dry Shampoo Spray

After reading all the rave reviews about dry shampoo, I decided I should give it a whirl. I decided to give this brand a test drive before I committed to a more expensive brand. This dry shampoo spray is formulated with mineral clay, which helps refresh hair.  I found the formula to be very sticky and have decent scent. It did get rid of some of the oil and added some texture to my hair, but I did not like the way my hair looked or felt. I am not fan of this brand, but I am willing to give dry shampooing another try.  Perhaps, I will try Tresemme Fresh Start or Batiste Dry Shampoo.

Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy - French Vanilla

The French vanilla hand therapy lotion is packed with Glycerine, vitamin E, aloe vera, wheat protein, almond oil and plant extracts. This creamy hand cream left my hands feeling soft and lightly scented of vanilla. The cream was long lasting but it was a bit greasy.  I like the .25 oz pursette size, it is very small and conveniently fits into even my smallest bag.

I work within 7 minutes of my local Bath and Body Works. As usual, during lunch time and especially during the holidays BBW was packed. Trying to avoid the crowds, I was mostly browsing the corner displays. I came across this lovely floral scented body wash. I am especially fond of floral scents; they always seem to take me to my happy place. The body wash lathers well and leaves my skin freshly scented. It does provide ample moisture but the best thing about this body wash is the great aroma it leaves in your skin. The scent might be too strong for some, so try the travel size before committing to the full size if possible.

I have been a fan of Herbal Essences, since I was in High School. Although, they had slightly fell out of favor with me after noticing they mostly had a nice scent but no other benefits.  The tousle me softly shampoo and conditioner redeemed my faith in this brand. Apart from the delicious scent, it lathers well and rinses off very cleanly. I also love how it eloquently it makes my short straight hair slightly wavy without using any extra products or heat styling. I got tons of compliments and questions about how great my hair looks and how soft it feels.

Nivea Touch of Cashmere

This creamy oil body wash left my skin silky. It lathers well and is enriched with cashmere proteins.  The orchid blossom scent invigorated my senses in the shower and left my skin lightly fragranced. I also noticed my skin had a healthy looking sheen afterwards. I will definitely pick up a couple more bottles of this when it goes on sale.
