Dry Shampoooooo!

Since I started to dye my hair, the 'not so normal' colors, I found that dry shampoo is my new best friend. It helps my hair look clean and fresh when I go those extra few days between washes. Here are a few of my favorites and my thought on my Birchbox sample I received this month.

It's a 10 noir!

Finally, the last two items left in my November Birchox!

First we have the It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product. Right off the bat, I'm not big on the smell. I guess to me it smells like hairspray, and sometimes that can be a little ugh. I'm not saying that it is repulsive, but it smells like a hair product, if you get what I'm saying. After all of the bleaching and heat tools that I use on my hair I am constantly looking for something that will give me an extra boost to it's health. I need a product to condition, help frizz, help repair, to make my hair bouncy and soft. This does all of these things! I'm fresh out of the shower, towel dried my hair and pumped this in. I am really surprised with how well it sprays, inside the container it is pretty thick but the product is pumped out it is thin and really easy to work with. After my hair dried, it was left bouncy and sooooooo soft! The smell didn't linger so that is a big plus.
I am really pleased with this product and would love to get my hands on more products to try to out! This sample is pretty big, so it should last me a while. A full size product is $19.99 for 4fl. oz at the Birchbox shop.

November Favs!

Tis the season to share what I have been loving for the month of November. Personally I cannot wait for December, I know of a few things that are heading my way shortly and it will be a stellar month!

Lets get on to the good stuff!

The most wonderful thing about the month of November was getting a little package containing delicious smelling goodies from the Black Phoenix Trading Post! This is the sister company to Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab that I have talked about briefly before, I know I owe them a full post...maybe after the yules get here. They do some perfume oils, but they also do hair gloss, atmosphere sprays, candles, bath oils, and other wonderful delights. Out of all the great things I picked out this month I am loving two of them the most. The first is the SILKYBAT Hair Gloss, the scent is 'Sentual Sugared Patchouli'. Oh man the amazing things that happened in my nose! I know my first thought when I hear patchouli is dirty hippy, but that is not the case. This is still has that patchouli body, but with a sweet twist to it. I do a couple sprays in my hair, tossel it around and I'm good to go. The scent has a great throw, and isn't too over powering. I wouldn't wear this with another scent, unless it really matched up well. This is something that I need to have year round, sadly this is a limited edition 'Weenie and they hair gloss does have a shelf life of 6 months. A full size is 4oz and this goes for $28.

Another smelly item that I picked up this month from BPTP was their perfume to commemorate All Hallow's Read 2013. If you would like to know more about what All Hallow's Read is, look HERE and let Neil Gaiman share with you. This scent is called All Hallow's Apple, this is fallen apples, grave moss, autumn leaves, and upturned earth. When I close my eyes and take a sniff, I can picture myself walking through an apple orchard, in october, fallen leaves and maybe a little mud from last nights rain. From the bottle to my skin there is not much change, it is so delicious and fresh and amazing! The apple isn't too sweet, and the leaves aren't too strong. This is definitely one of my top perfumes from BPTP or BPAL. Standard full size for all perfumes is 5ml in an amber apothicary bottle, and this scent will run you $23. Another thing to mention is that all proceeds of the sales for this perfume will benefit the CBLDF.

The first time that I was introduced to this brand was in a Birchbox last summer. The last product I had the pleasure to sample was the Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum. It is a great product to wear under your makeup to add that layer of amazing sun protection.

This time I got a little tube of their Supergoop! Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream in Light/Medium.
