Katelyn’s Weekly Wish List

Buenos Dias! Hope you were able to read Helen’s wish list last week. I know it made we want to put a few extra things in my shopping cart, figuratively and literally 😛 Without further adieu these are some products that have been on my mind.

Boscia Charcoal Jelly Ball Cleanser

I have never seen anything like this before?! This is a cleanser in the shape of a ball?! Apparently all you do is massage this ball over your face and voila! Beautiful skin.. Seems like it could get messy but if it works it works. There is never a dull moment in the skincare industry.

Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil Ultra Fine Shape & Define

As a lover of brow products, I’m always interested in trying something that can beat the Anastasia brow wiz that I’ve loved for years. I’ve seen many people, beauty gurus, and Youtubers use this pencil to fill in their brows and it looks great. So when I finish my brow wiz I meant take a trip to Sephora to try out something new. There is another pencil that is angled but the tip isn’t as fine and I find that fine tip pencils are better for me to get a natural look since I’m not blessed with full brows.

VERB Sea Texture Cream

My hair is relatively flat, it’s fine and doesn’t have much character so I’m always looking for ways to add some texture and volume. I’ve tried other products from the Verb line before and I have thoroughly enjoyed them (want a review? 😛 ). Out of all the hair lines at Sephora I find Verb to be one of the most affordable or at least a good bang for your buck. Most of their products are very highly reviewed so I have high hopes/expectations for this product.

Let me know if any of these are worth trying? And as always comment down below to share what products are on your wish list! Have a great week!

Pantene Pro-V: Moisture Mist Detangler

Hi everyone! Hope you all are enjoying your weekends! I know some of you are already dreading the start of a new work week, but try not to think about it too much yet. Take some time for yourself! During your downtime you should check out Helen’s wish list this week. Retail therapy can be a great way to de-stress 😉

This week we are giving our hair a bit of TLC with the Pantene Pro-V Moisture Mist Detangler (what a mouthful). Helen was the first to discover this product and soon after shared her new discovery with Katelyn and the rest is history.

Description

The moisture mist detangler separates, smooths, and detangles your hair while moisturizing and strengthening it in order to achieve any style you want. It is meant for all hair types that are in need of a drink of water. It also works on colour-treated or permed hair. This can be used daily to nourish your hair before styling.

This is meant to be sprayed on damp hair where moisture or detangling is needed. Comb it through and do not rinse it out, then simply carry on with your styling routine.

The bottle contains 252mL and retails for about $5.99USD/$7.99CAD but as you know we love to find great deals and we managed to buy ours for only $3.99CAD!

Review

If you are looking for an affordable way to moisturize and detangle your hair we think this product is a great option. It does pretty much everything it claims to do which is to moisturize, smooth, and detangle your hair. With a price tag of less than $5, it’s hard to beat.

After applying it for the first time we immediately noticed that our hair was much smoother and had a healthy sheen to it; there was an immediate difference in the texture of our hair. Katelyn was worried that this product might weigh down her hair, since she has very fine strands, but it didn’t do that. As it says on the bottle, it’s great for light conditioning where you want it. It’s also a great product to use on wet or dry hair, perfect for toning down frizzy hair or giving your hair some extra hydration. Given that it’s also in a spray bottle, it’s very easy to use in your hair and distribute the product evenly.

The product is lightly scented and smells kind of like a sweet scented hairspray… if you see it in store and smell it, you’ll know what we mean! 😛 While we find the scent pleasant and not overpowering (the light scent lingers for a couple hours but fades quickly), some people that may be sensitive to scents may not like it. As well, while we find the product is great for light conditioning, we can’t say for sure if it’s helped to strengthen our hair. We personally haven’t noticed a reduction in breakage or split ends.

Pros Cons
  • Affordable
  • Immediate difference in hair texture, light conditioning
  • Helps to detangle and tame frizziness
  • Doesn’t weigh down hair
  • Great for colour-treated hair that has been weakened with bleaching
  • Can use on wet or dry hair
  • Pleasant smelling for us
  • Easy to apply
  • Scented – may bother some people
  • Hard to tell if this has strengthen hair –

Overall, we definitely recommend this hair mist for all hair types! Try to look for sales but even without one, it’s still pretty affordable. Have you given it a try yet or have you seen it in store? Let us know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by and liking our post, we hope you have a great week. Don’t forget to come back Thursday to see Katelyn’s new weekly wishlist post!

 

Garnier Fructis: Heal and Seal Treatment

Hello lovelies! Did you get a chance to give the Nails Inc Illuminator a try yet? If you’re still on the fence about it or want more details, check out our post from last week! Now if you’re feeling like your hair could use a little TLC after these cold winter months, you should definitely check out the amazing Heal and Seal Treatment by Garnier.

Description

l1030517Katelyn needed some serious hair therapy after bleaching her hair and so she went on a journey to find inexpensive hair care products that would bring some life back into her damaged locks. She needed some major hair conditioning fast! Luckily the Heal and Seal Treatment came to the rescue!

Garnier has a 60 second hair treatment that is meant to smooth roughness, repair damaged hair, and help minimize future damage. The treatment can be used daily and contains Cupuaçu butter and Phyto-Keratin Complex, aimed to melt and bind to damaged hair – presto, healed and sealed! It retails for $5.99 on the Garnier website for 200 mL, though you may be able to save a few coins buying it off Amazon.ca at $5.27.

Review

If you can’t tell we really like this product. Not to sound like a commercial but your hair truly feels noticeably softer and conditioned after just one use (cue Selena Gomez hair flip). It’s very nourishing without weighing down your hair or feeling greasy. The formula is the perfect balance – not too thick or runny – which makes it easy to apply throughout your hair. It really only takes 60 seconds, but leaving it in for longer doesn’t cause any build-up, so it’s not necessary to strictly follow the directions. Whether your hair is coloured or not, this treatment is a must-have for all! It has universal hair salon smell, nothing too overpowering and a scent that doesn’t linger much.This quick and easy remedy is very affordable in comparison to other drugstore and high-end hair treatments (though don’t forget to wait for a sale, we snagged these babies for about $3!).

Now that we have convinced you to buy this product, it pains us to inform you that this wonderful item is being discontinued (cue crying scene in the rain). We didn’t realize this until we started looking on the Garnier website and couldn’t find it… On the US website it actually claims that it’s being discontinued. Hopefully we’re wrong about this since it seems to be the best hair treatment we’ve come across but in case we are right, stock up!

Pros Cons
  • Very moisturizing without being greasy
  • Dry/damaged ends are visibly softer and shinier
  • Good on all hair types
  • Quick and easy
  • Inexpensive
  • Pleasant smelling, not overpowering
  • Not too thick, spreads easily
  • DISCONTINUED?! WTF

Let us know if you give it a try, we’d love to hear your thoughts! If you find out that it’s staying in the permanent collection, comment below! We’ll start a petition otherwise 😦
