TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner

Tresemme

Thank you Influenster for sending me TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner complimentary to try.

 

I was excited to try this set as my hair can be pretty frizzy since I don’t use a blow dryer often.  It’s not good to use a lot of heat on your hair so I usually let it dry naturally.  This set has 5 benefits: Anti-Frizz, Perfectly Detangles, Silky Shine, Soft Feel & Tames Fly-Aways.

 

When I received my box I was floored that I got liter bottles , I was expecting travel size so this was a nice surprise.

This set has a nice smell to it, not over powering or too floral.  I have allergies so some scents really bother them.  I did notice the next day my hair was really oily and I don’t have that issue with my normal shampoo and conditioner.

Let’s go over the 5 benefits it has:

Anit Frizz- It does work for anti-frizz, I noticed just after a few washes that my hair was less frizzy.

Perfectly Detangles -I would say detangle wise it’s the same as most shampoos, I didn’t really see a difference.

Silky Shine -My hair also had a nice shine to it and felt silky but only for one day then it went greasy.

Soft Feel – My hair was nice and soft for the first day and then went greasy.

Tames Fly-Aways – Since I mostly let my hair naturally dry I could tell it tamed my fly aways.

Tresemme me

Overall: It is a nice product but for me I feel my normal professional shampoo & conditioner is better.  I don’t wash my hair every day, as it is best to let the natural oils come out and washing every day can dry your hair out.

I won’t be purchasing TRESemme for one big reason; they are NOT cruelty free.  They do claim so on their site but if you follow the link to Unilever you find this statement:   “Occasionally, when there are no suitable non-animal approaches available, some of the ingredients we use have to be tested; and some governments test our products on animals as part of their regulatory requirements. We are actively working with these governments, other scientists and NGOs, to put in place alternative methods.”

I also wont be buying this due to the fact after one day my hair is really greasy and I don’t want to over wash my hair.  Please note I use less of the TRESemme products than I do of my normal shampoo and conditioner.  Also I only normally use Salon brand products like Big Sexy (which is what I have been using before I got these bottles).

I am in love with this months bag!!!!  It’s my two favorite colors blue and silver ❤

 

 

 

The First product I received was a Crown Brush Beaute Basic C405 Contour Blush Brush – I am already a big fan of Crown Brush brushes. I have received them before and they are really nice.

 

 

 

 

 

The Second product I received was pur~lisse Blue Lotus Seed 5-in-1 mask + exfoliant – I have’t tried this as I am in love with a mask I use now.

The Third product I received was theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer, Shadow & Contour Powder – I have this set a side since I am still using the last bronzer I got from Ipsy.

  • You can buy right from them here: theBalm

 

 

 

 

 

The Fourth product I received was Ciate London GELOLOGY Top Coat – I haven’t used this as I have a preferred top coat and I don’t sway from it lol.

 

 

 

 

The Last product I received was IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Anti-Aging Concealer -I have this set a side too since Im still working on the last concealer from Ipsy but Im excited to try this 😀

Overall I’m really happy with my last bag not only was the actual bag perfect but I liked all the products I received (well the top coat was given away but still it was polish related lol).  I’ll still be writing reviews on polish and I will be sharing Younique now.

 

Ipsy is a great subscription for $10 and I recommend it for a sub.

The First product I received was Formula X Nail Polish in Huntress – I haven’t used this polish yet but I have use Forumla X before and do like some of the polishes but he forumla can be iffy.

  • Since Sephora quit carrying the polish I’m not sure where to get the polishes from.

The Last product I received was OFRA Cosmetic Labratories Banana Highlighting Powder – I haven’t used this yet as I am a bit intimidated with highlighter but it is on my list to try 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

Overall:  So this bag was actually awesome! I did gift the bag to some one since I have so many I thought she would really love the bag 😀

 

For $10 a month is a really good subscription and now you can customize the bags a little bit.  As I always say giving honest reviews made my bags better and I reviewed every bag ie if I didn’t use a product I honestly told them that.

Ipsy ~ Reviewing products I haven’t used in past blogs.

Image result for ipsy logo

 

So I thought I would go back a review products that I had not used in past blog post.

 

 

First up is BioRepublic SkinCare Sheet Mask Trio in  Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask, Cucumber Breeze Soothing Fiber Mask, and Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask.

These are really nice masks. I like that I can put them on and then they come off nicely. They left my skin nice and soft too.

*From the June 2015 Glam Bag

 

 

Next we have Albertini Divine Skin Hydrator.

This is a nice light hydrator but I would definitely say I like it better when I use it in the shower vs after.

Can be found at Albertini International. Retails for $13.95

*From the August 2015 Glam Bag

 

 

Next up is Skone Cosmetics Pretty Eyes eyeliner. This is a nice eyeliner goes on smoothly and wear time is great.

Can be found at Skone Cosmetics. Retails for $12.

 

*From October 2015 Glam Bag

 

 

 

Next up is  LeeAnni Eco Go Away Gloomy Day Serum. 

So I used this product and I didn’t really see a difference in my skin. The only thing I noticed that around my nose was a bit dry.

Can be found at LeeAnni Eco. Retails for $29.98

 

 

 

Next up is Crown Brush Oval Concealer Brush (C224) .  I hadn’t really used this brush until my best friend came over and showed me how to really use make up :D. I am now an avid user of this brush. I love how soft it is but yet it is stiff enough to apply my concealer.

Can be found at Crown Brush. Retails for $4.47

*From the December 2015 Glam Bag

 

 

Next up is Mr. Balm Cosmetics Mr Write (Now) Jack B. Bronze. This is a really nice eyeliner, great application and coverage.  I really like using it on my top eye lid for a pop of shine.

Can be found at theBalm. Retails for $17.

*From the January 2016 Glam Bag

 

 

 

Next up is Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil. Ok no one freak out but this went into the trash. I didn’t want to put oil on my face. I have combination to oil skin and putting oil on it just seemed really dumb.  So unfortunately I don’t have a review for this product.

I do love Smashbox and loved the other primer I got in another Glam Bag though.

*From the February 2016 Glam Bag

 

 

 

Next up is Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash. This is a nice mascara but its not one of my top favorites.

Can be found at Sephora. Retails for $25

*From the July 2016 Glam Bag

 

 

 

Image result for NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm red velvet

Next up is NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet. Goes on nice and wear time is great. Since its tinted its a nice touch if you want a simple lip or just a little something with no other make up.

Can be found at Ulta for $3.99

*From the December 2014 Glam Bag

 

 

 

Next up we have InCoco Nail Polish Appliques. I turned in points for these as I was intrigued since they are made out of nail polish and are not stickers. These are 100% better than Jamberry! Easy to apply and easy to remove.

You can now find them at Target for $6.99 or you can go to INCOCO.

Ive added the mani that I used them in 😀

October 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag -Black Magic

october-16-ipsy-bag

This months bag was definitely cute! I love how its Halloween themed and that they worked with an artist to design the bag 😀

 

 

The first product I received was Ciate London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner – I haven’t opened this one yet as I am horrible at liquid eyeliner so I have one from a previous month that I am using to practice with.

 

 

 

The second product I received was  theBalm Cosmetics Hot Mama Blush – Well I don’t use blush since I have natural rosy cheeks so this will be going in the swap box.

 

 

 

The third product I received was Kokie Cosmetics Kokie Nail Polish in Heavenly – I haven’t used this yet but its in line to be used soon.

  • You can purchase at Bed Bath & Beyond, Harmon, Christmas Tree Shops, Harmon Face Values or Kokie Cosmetics. It retails for $6 (on their site).

 

 

 

The fourth product I received was tre’StiQue Matte Lip Crayon Belize Bordeaux – I have worn this a couple of times and it’s a nice smooth application. Wear time is like normal lip products.

 

 

 

 

The last product I received was pur~lisse Daily Lip Nourisher with Mango and Shea Butters – This is a really nice lip balm. I like to use it before bed so it moisturizers over night.

  • You can purchase at Purlisse. Retails for $16

 

 

 

*Pictures are from Ipsy 

 

Overall: Minus the blush I would say this bag was great. Hopefully soon I can opt out of blush as a product to receive.

September 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag – Glamazon

september-2016-ipsy-glam-bag

This month bag is a miss for me. The “girls” spell out Ipsy but it’s not my style, though it is cute.

 

 

The first product I received was IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara in Super Black – I haven’t opened this yet since I am still using my tarte mascara from last month.

  • IT Cosmetics can be found in lots of beauty stores, QVC and at IT Cosmetics. It retails for $24

 

 

 

The second product I received was  Crown Brush Ombre Angle Brush – LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this brush! I use it with my 3 tone bronzer and it so soft.

  • I’m not sure if this brand is carried in stores so you can purchase straight from them at Crown Brush. It retails for $7.99.

 

 

The third product I received was NUXE Moisturizing Mask Creme Fraiche de Beaute – I haven’t tried this yet since I am trying to finish up my tub of Body Shop face mask before it goes bad.

  • You can purchase at NUXE Paris. It retails for $25

 

 

 

The fourth product was BeFine Food Skin Care Exfoliating Cleanser – This was really nice cleanser and smelled good. I really liked that it exfoliated while it cleaned.

 

 

 

The last product I received was  Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Champagne Socialite – I have used TFB polish before and they are nice but a bit pricey.

 

 

* Please note the 2 products on the left of the picture I turned points in for 😀

Overall:  Another good month even though the bag isn’t my style I would still say this bag was a win
