MAPLE HOLISTICS: SILK 18 CONDITIONER.

Happy Friday, I hope everyone had a great week. The weather has been nearly perfect! I’m looking forward to the weekend, maybe go on a little hike or walk by the beach. What are your plans?

Anyway, a company I have worked with before (see from this blogpost) Maple Holistics was generous enough to let me test out their #1 best selling conditioner: Silk 18. I was super excited to see how it smelled and what it could do for my hair.

First off, it smells SO good. I’m a huge fan of vanilla scents, and this conditioner smells like a vanilla cupcake. YUM. I love how soft it leaves my hair feeling after one wash. I’ve used this conditioner for almost 2 weeks, and it’s become apart of my hair routine. I have mentioned before that I like to change up my hair products, and I think this is one you should try!

I like a conditioner that makes my hair shiny, moisturized, smooth, and doesn’t weigh my hair down. I think Silk 18 does a good job of fulfilling my hair needs! It is sulfate free, contains amino acids, argan, shea butter, jojoba, and botanical keratin. I love it! Can I mention that it’s also reallllly affordable?


Make sure to get your free samples here. You can try different products for free, like their tea tree oil, biotin shampoo, and much more.

Also check out their their blog for more information!

 

Have a great weekend!

REVIEW: L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Clay Line.

My friends over at Influenster were kind enough to send me a L’Oréal Extraordinary Clay VoxBox! I love testing out hair products, especially since I use shampoos & conditioners everyday!

Well, L’Oréal came out with a line specifically meant for people who have oily roots and dry ends. This hair mask/shampoo/conditioner is silicone free (awesome) and meant to last up to 48 hours.

It is a three step process (and I do this once a week, max twice). These products are super lightweight and fresh! They smell great, and soak up all my oils! I really love these products.

You can get these products from L’Oréal’s website. Also, they are super affordable, ranging from $4.99-$6.99! You can’t beat that!

If you have oily roots and ends that need some hydrating, I think you should give this extraordinary clay line a chance! I really loved testing out these products. I was a little skeptical of the clay mask pre-shampoo treatment, since you have to put it on dry hair (THEN rinse it in the shower) but it works wonderfully! Thank you Influenster!

review: slimfast voxbox

Hello everyone,

I’m back to review some items that Slimfast and Influenster sent me for free. All of these reviews and opinions are my own.

CXbKzwAWEAAPvP3

When I received the little red package of goodies, there were four products inside. I was surprised they sent so many items, and excited to see what they were going to taste like. I’ve never used Slimfast before, so all of these products were brand new to me.

I started off with the 100 calorie drizzled crisps in the flavor cinnamon bun and they were SO good. I really loved these a lot. Not only could you snack on them from the bag, but the packaging also said you could put them in a bowl with milk and eat it like cereal. I thought that was clever, but I opted to eat them from the bag. For only being 100 calories I felt like I got a good amount of crisps to munch on, and I would definitely buy these if I saw them in the grocery store. I would give these snacks a 5/5! (so yummy!)

The next product is the Slimfast Advanced Nutrition Meal Replacement Shake in the flavor Vanilla Cream. At first glance I love the packaging, and how it shows you how much sugar, vitamins, and fiber is in the drink. For all those who can’t intake gluten or lactose, it doesn’t have any- so you can drink this product! I was a little nervous to taste it because I don’t normally go for “vanilla” when it comes to meal replacement shakes. I would rather opt for chocolate, but that didn’t stop me from trying out the drink. The first couple of sips were sweet, and actually good. I was surprised I liked the vanilla flavoring. But halfway through the drink, I was already getting sick of the flavor. It sort of tasted like cake batter to me, and for some people that isn’t a bad thing- but for myself, it was a bit too much. And that’s why I usually opt for chocolate flavoring for any kind of protein/meal replacement shakes because vanilla usually isn’t for me. But that isn’t Slimfast’s fault, as I didn’t get to choose the flavor of my shake. As for the statement on the bottle that it has a “4 hour hunger control” I would say it’s true. It does fill you up when you drink it. If I was at school, and in between classes I could see how this and a small snack would help me feel not as hungry. I give this product a 3.5/5. If I can get my hands on a chocolate flavored one, I would definitely give it another try.

The third product is the 100 calorie snack baked crisps in the flavor sour cream & onion. Once again, the packaging is great: showing you how much protein and fiber is in the baked crisps.I opened up the bag, and I really liked the texture of the chips. They reminded me of “pop chips”, as they are light and crunchy! So good!! I loved the flavor I got as well, but they also have it in mesquite bbq for those of you who aren’t a fan of sour cream & onion, which sounds so delicious. If you’re a chip lover, or crave chips as your “unhealthy” snack (like I do), I recommend these chips because they will fulfill your cravings & they are only 100 calories. I give this a 5/5.

The last snack is the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Meal Replacement Bar. It has 10g of protein, 5g of fiber, and 18 vitamins and minerals. It is gluten free, and contains peanuts and almonds. It has 190 calories for the full bar, and it is a great snack between meals. My favorite part about this bar was the nuts and the chocolate. My least favorite part was probably the sea salt taste. It’s easy to throw inside your backpack or purse when you’re on the go. I give this a 4/5.

As the new year is coming, I know many people are trying to get back into shape, and any little thing can help. I’m actually in the process of starting my fitness journey again. It’s good to know that there are healthy snacks out there! The baked crisps and drizzled crisps were my favorite from all of these products!

Would you try any of these products? Have you ever tried Slimfast products, and if you did- how was your experience?  Thank you for stopping by!

review: dove dry spray

Hi everyone,

I’m back to review and give my honest opinion about Dove dry spray. I was sent this product from influenster for testing purposes. I used this product for about a week now, and I can truthfully say I really like it. First off, the scent influenster sent me was cool cucumber, and it smells so good. It smells super fresh and clean, perfect for long days at work, or running errands. I noticed that it did not irritate my armpits or make them itchy (as I do have somewhat sensitive skin). I did not notice any dry spray remains on my clothing, like the typical deodorant would leave (awesome!) But the only complaint I have is, when I spray it onto my underarms, it does sometimes leave some clumps of residue I’d later need to wipe off with a tissue (so make sure you don’t spray it so close to your armpits and leave some length so it sprays on evenly). I definitely want to try some of the other scents and I would buy this product once it’s empty.

Final thoughts: I would recommend this product to others.
