NOTD: Nighttime Snow  

Monday, December 19, 2011

Today I have a quick french mani!  My friends helped me name this look Nighttime Snow. First I used Seche Base as my basecoat followed by two coats of Wet 'N Wild Black Creme Wild Shine polish. While the polish was still wet, I dipped the tips of my nails into LA Splash Cosmetics Nail Art Glitter in Golden Egg.  I then topped the mani with LA Splash's Glitter Top Coat. Enjoy! 



Love, Peace & Lip Gloss!

Repeat Beauty Buys - Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Replenishing Hair Milk  

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Hola Goddesses!

I wanted to start a new section of my blog where I rave about my love for beauty items that I buy over and over again or that I go back to after trying something new.  All of the items that I will mention in these posts are items that I have purchased with my own funds.  Please share with me any beauty items that you buy again and again in the comments.

For the first of these products that I love and have bought multiples of, is Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Replenishing Hair Milk

I was at Target one day, browsing the hair and beauty isles as I normally do when I have some free time and I came across this product.  Of course coconut oil jumped out at me because that is my number one beauty secret.  When I read the ingredients, there were some pretty good things in it like coconut oil, coconut milk and Shea butter. Green light number one.

Then, you know I had to smell it. Now, those that know me well know that I don't care how fabulous a hair product will spin my hair into silk or whatever;  if it does not smell good, I'm not buying it.  I love to smell like vanilla and coconut so this hair milk was perfect. It smells like sweet creamy coconut milk with a hint of soft vanilla.  It spoke to me; I knew I had to have it. Green light number two.

This was perfect too since I had been looking for a good water based leave-in for when I wear my hair curly.  I tried the Elasta QP Mango Butter, which I liked and it smelled good, but it was too heavy and thick for my hair.  Palmer's has a smooth, light and creamy consistency and it spreads well and evenly throughout your strands. Green light number three; I'm sold.

I fell in love...with the product of course.

I love this product so much that I went back to two different Targets and cleaned them out. I had about 10 or 11 bottles on deck under my sink because I was so afraid that they would stop making it. I have given out multiple bottles as gifts too. It's not only for curly hair though; my bella friend Mandy (@AmandaPizzo1) at Books, Shopping & Rock N' Roll, has straight, fine strands and she uses it too!

The way I use this product is after I have washed and conditioned by hair and sprayed my detangler (a second Repeat Beauty Buy for another date!), I take about a silver dollar amount and disperse it throughout my hair. Then, I detangle with my Denman and apply another silver dollar amount ( I have waist length hair so I use more product).  Then I style as usual. This product also gives tons of slip so detangling is a breeze.

If you have tried this hair milk, leave a comment and let me know if you love it or not!

Love, Peace & Lip Gloss!

I LOVE THIS LINE! I believe I have found my holy grail of hair care. I purchased my first bottle of the Oil Treatment in October of 2009 and have been using it ever since. Then last year, I was surfing SallyBeauty.com and noticed that One ‘N Only released a matching shampoo, conditioner and mask. I think I squealed in delight! I rushed over to my nearest Sally Beauty and asked the sales lady if they had it in stock yet, and they did not. *Sigh* I came back the following week and they were there! I raced home to try them out and have been hooked every since. The scent of these products is what captivated me first. The scent is a combination of honey, caramel, some herbal notes, crème brulee, exotic nuttiness, musk with a hint of warm vanilla. All scents I absolutely love! After the scent reeled me in, the way they made my hair look and feel kept me hooked. The shampoo instantly lathers even though it is sulfate free and leaves my hair with so much slip and very soft. The conditioner is of average thickness and rinses out clean and leaves your hair soft as well. The star is the Restorative Mask. Wow! It is super thick and creamy and leaves your hair detangled with incredible slip. After I use the conditioner, I apply the mask and put on a plastic cap and sit under my hooded dryer for about 15 minutes. After I rinse, I apply about a silver dollar amount (I have waist length hair, you would use less or more depending on the length and thickness of your hair) of the Oil Treatment to my hair concentrating on the ends and then style. All day my hair smells yummy and is as soft as cashmere. Yay!

The only disadvantage of these products are that I wish they came in a larger size such as a 33.8 oz liter for the shampoo and conditioner and 32 oz jar for the mask. I go through a bottle of the conditioner alone once a week. More product would make the Bronze Goddess happy!

I highly recommend these products for anyone with dry, damaged, color treated or chemically treated hair or those that just love soft, shiny, great smelling hair!

Love, Peace & Lip Gloss!
