Review: Not Your Mother’s “Beach Babe”

ad4c0eed47aa05a5632b9625fd87b538f8456a7a Review: Not Your Mothers Beach Babe

I was given the opportunity to try and review Not Your Mother’s “Beach Babe” Texturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. I have naturally curly hair and I usually have to use all sorts of product on my hair to keep the curls from being frizzy. Lots of product usually means stiff, crunchy hair.

When I set out to try the sample sizes I decided I would use only these products and no other. I was headed out for the day so I’ll admit to being a little nervous to see the outcome of only using shampoo and conditioner. Would I need to redo my hair so I could go out in public? Nope!

IMG 1131 300x300 Review: Not Your Mothers Beach BabeFirst off I noticed the WONDERFUL smell of these products. Seriously — I’ve never smelled anything so yummy! My 8 year old son even asked if he could taste my hair… um no, son you can’t! LOL! The fragrance is a mix between coconut and tropical fruit. Very “beach” and “vacation” smelling!

Second, I noted the light weight conditioner. I usually only condition the bottom half of my hair because most conditioners make my roots greasy and icky. NYM Beach Babe is not a normal conditioner. It left my hair smooth and soft and shiny, no greasy roots even after day two.

In the end I let my hair air dry and the waves were great. No frizz and my hair was so soft!

Review: Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick

5a3b7f10f7b76ac0d3625c52175efaa7 300x300 Review: Rimmel London Moisture Renew LipstickI was recently send a sample of Rimmel London’s “New & Improved” Moisture Renew Lipstick. I do not usually wear lipstick because it always dries out my lips, so I am more of a lip balm/chapstick kinda gal. I tested out the sample though and was pleasantly surprised to find how soft and smooth this lipstick is.

The only problem seemed to be the lipstick comes off very easily. My son didn’t mind though icon smile Review: Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick

Since my oldest son took an art class through our homeschool co-op I’ve loved painting with watercolors. I have no talent as a painter but I had fun making these fun swirls and brushstrokes.
