Súper Short Product Reviews🍃Featuring @InnersenseBeauty @Jordanseban

Hola Amigos!

Today on super short product reviews we will be moving away from skincare & beauty products and shining the spotlight on hair care.

Now usually I review one brand at a time but today I wanted to do an episode devoted entirely to my hair routine.

A little bit of info about my hair: I have thick, long, color treated hair that because of the coloring and the harsh water & humidity here has become very dry and prone to split ends and occasional frizz.

I have tried countless natural shampoos, shampoo bars and conditioners and have found some to be totally awesome while others to be totally awful. You can check my Instagram for the winning and the failing brands.

Ok so the brand(s) in focus today are: Innersense & Jordan Seban.

I chose the color awakening shampoo, conditioner and the sweet spirit leave in conditioner.

From Jordan Seban I chose the the LeBaume leave in conditioner.

Both brands use all natural, organic ingredients and are free from all the usual chemicals: sls, pthalates, silicones.

The Innersense shampoo and conditioner are priced at $28 & $30, the leave in conditioner is $26 all are 10oz.

The Jordan Seban leave in conditioner is $38 for 4oz.

Ok not that we have the specs out of the way let me start with my experience with each of them. The color awakening bath is used like a regular shampoo, not ginormous suds like sulphate shampoos bit good enough that I felt like my hair and scalp were clean. The conditioner is used like conventional conditioners you apply leave for 2 mins and rinse clean.

I did feel that my hair was not totally tangle free with just the conditioner and I had to use the sweet spirit leave in conditioner for me to able to comb my hair after. ( I just used a few pumps and rubbed it through the length of my hair)

Once it was dry though my hair did feel softer, with almost no frizz.

So overall I do like this trio. However I found the conditioner a bit of a let down. Usually when I use a conditioner bar i can detangle my hair pretty easily without the need for a third product which wasn’t the case here.

Also if you occasionally use hair oil, then this shampoo will not be able to wash out the oil, based on the lather it produces.

Ok moving on to the Jordan Seban leave in. I primarily bought that to prep and protect my hair before I use use heat styling and also to further prevent frizz. It’s going to be summer soon and we have 90% humidity in the summer so frizz and fly always are a major problem.

The balm is like a thick gel, and you need only a dime sized amount, I usually use it when my hair is pretty damp right after a shower and then I let it either air dry or use a hair dryer.

When I used the Jordan Seban in conjunction with the inner sense trio I found my hair was, softer, tangle and frizz free and almost straight and this was when it was air dried.

So overall I’m pretty happy with these 4 products and I will definitely be repurchasing the leave in conditioners by both brands. The shampoo and conditioner by Innersense, I’m not sure about just because I regularly oil my hair and I don’t want to purchase a separate shampoo just for those days.

Have you guys tried these brands? What was your experience like?

Súper Short Product Reviews Featuring @Earthwise Beauty Passion Eye Serum🍃

🍃Let’s talk about the eye area today. I have been through countless eye creams serums and oils from super expensive to drugstore affordable brands all claiming to lift, tighten, brighten and hydrate the delicate eye area and almost all being totally disappointing.

🍃Therefore it’s no wonder I’m extremely skeptical when I see yet another product claiming to be the miracle cure for all the problems in the eye area. So when I read the rave reviews about the @Earthwisebeauty Passion eye serum I was part skeptical part hopeful. Before I start reviewing the product though let me list for you my own problems with my eyes and the solutions I expect a product to provide:

I have dark circles

Fine lines

And my eye area is super dry plus I hate it when eye products migrate into the eye and as I result I get itchy, irritated 😭eyes and blurry vision.

🍃Ok now let’s start with the product:

The passion eye serum comes in a 15 ml bottle and retails for $85💸 which i know is a bit of a sticker shock but it lasts forever because you really only need a drop for both eyes. I’ve been using mine for the last 3 months and I still have more than half still left.

Let’s move on to the ingredients: there are a lot of ingredients so I’m only going to list the most significant ones here:

🍃Seabuckthorn (for firmness), green coffee oil ( to treat dark circles & puffiness), Amaranth ( high in Squalene for lines & wrinkles).

Ok now lets move on to the texture: it’s a deep, gold colored oil, which instantly hydrates, is non sticky, non irritating and won’t migrate into your eyes. Its very fast absorbing provided you only use a small amount: 1 drop 💧is more than enough for both eyes.

In terms of results: I found it to be very moisturizing for my dry under eye area, in terms of dark circles: honestly I didn’t find a visible difference there. For my fine lines I feel like there has been a slight improvement the skin under the eyes does appear less crepey.

Overall I’m happy with the product. Will I repurchase depends on if I can find something that can do all of the above and lighten my dark circles because that’s the one concern I found this product couldn’t alleviate.

And that’s a wrap on this review guys! As always don’t forget to like and follow and share with me if have tried you the passion eye serum. What was your experience like?

Super Short Product Reviews💋Featuring @GoodMedicineBeautyLab

Hola Amigos!

Today on super short product reviews I will be reviewing two of my favorite skincare products from a brand my entire family now uses 🥳@goodmedicinebeauty.

I came across this brand during the course of my everyday Instagram browsing 😳and I have been a repeat customer ever since.

So let’s get started with the first product:

The Breeze revival mist💦is an amazing toner/mist that contains wild desert honey🍯fresh distilled limes 🍋and apple cider vinegar🍎amongst its many natural ingredients.

I use it to prep my skin before my serums, oils. It cools & calms the skin, protects from acne causing bacteria and also helps soothe any redness or inflammation.

I also use it as a makeup remover after I wash my face by spritzing it on a cotton pad and using it to remove any leftover makeup residue.

On to my second favorite❣️The Electric Sky Universal Elixir⚡️ like I said before this product is used by my entire family: 👩‍👩‍👧‍👧my mom and my sisters use this and between the four of us we have drastically different skin types. My mom has super dry skin, me and my sister have combination/oily and my middle sister had normal skin and it works for all of us ✨

So let’s get started first with applying it and I’ll talk about the ingredients along the way.

I use 2-3 drops max. That’s enough to cover my face and neck. Anymore and I find my face gets way to oily. The star ✨ingredients of this product are hemp seed oil, activated oxygen O3 & prickly pear seed oil.

My family and I have found that this product truly lives up to all of its claims:

It helps with dryness

Treats and prevents acne breakouts

Makes your skin glow

There is just one con with this product: the fragrance or odor in this case.

When you initially use it you will notice that it has a very very strong, herbaceous odor which I honestly got used to over time but I just wanted to mention it because it’s very strong🙃

Ok price 🤑the toner retails for $34 for 4oz & the Elixir is $68 for 1oz but Good Medicine has amazing sales I’m talking about 40% off on and off through the year. So make sure you subscribe to their website so you can score amazing deals.

That’s it it for this episode make sure you like and follow and see you next time 😘

Súper Short Reviews🍃Featuring 100% Pure Lip Caramels💋

Hola amigos!

Today on super short product reviews i will be talking my two absolute favorite💋 lip colors from my go to makeup brand 100% pure🍃

I have always been a huge fan of bold lip colors and red and bright pink are two of my all time favorite plus they are universally flattering colors so they work with every complexion.

So without further ado let’s get started:

The two colors I bought are the cherry cordial ( a brilliant deep pink) and the red velvet.

Cherry Cordial

Before i rave about the colors let’s go over the formulation: Like all 100% pure🍃products these too are fruit pigmented and all natural. Plus they contain pomegranate oil and coco butter meaning your lips will never be dry or flaky.

Red Velvet

These are lip caramels which can best be described as a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss. Which means you get deep, richly pigmented color with super, glossy shine✨

Plus they are super easy to apply with the help of the wand applicator. I personally find it very difficult to get a clean, line with regular lipsticks esp when they become rounded after a couple of uses.

They are priced at $26 for 5 ml which might seem a bit pricey but they have good sales on and off so you can score some awesome deals.

Ok moving on the colors the red velvet is a gorgeous deep brown red perfect for when you want to get all glammed up.

The cherry cordial is a beautiful, berry pink it’s listed on the website as a berry red but on me it shows up as a deep pink.

The colors do bleed a bit so I would advise using a lip liner and it’s not transfer proof so be careful when you are smooching someone😘.

And that’s a wrap thank you for watching if you like this review don’t forget to like and follow and as always see you next time.

Súper Short Product Reviews Featuring Booda Organics🍃

Hola amigos❣️
Today I will be reviewing a brand that has replaced every single one of my body and hand creams since I stumbled upon it last year. The amazingly simple yet incredibly effective “booda butter” by @boodaorganics🍃
Let’s get started with all the good and none of the bad since this product has literally no cons 🥳
5 ingredients ! Literally this product only has 🖐🏼5! All natural, certified organic jojoba, coconut & olive oils, fair trade Shea and cocoa butter and that’s it!
Price💰: you get two size options $14 gets you 2.3 oz which is great if you are a single user and if you have a family of users( we are 3) then you should get the generous 8.4oz “tub of love❤️” which will last a good 2-3 months and I personally use it twice a day all over my body.
Texture 💦: it starts off as a soft solid butter then melts into your skin with zero post grease. Plus it has a delicious, very mild chocolate smell 🍫courtesy of the cocoa butter. Which means no 🚫artificial fragrance or colors here!
Uses: this product has multiple uses and it helps with a variety of skin problems including dry, itchy, flaky, rough skin, and even eczema 🤩
And that’s a wrap I hope you enjoyed this video as always like and follow and stay tuned for more super short product reviews coming soon!

Shopaholic 🍃Blogs Reviews: Erin’s Faces Concealer

🍃Let’s talk concealer👁. As you know I am constantly on the search for a clean, long wearing, non creasing concealer and for a while I was very happy with my Han concealer in the shade medium dark. But after a few months the concealer started feeling heavy on my skin and it was also creasing and settling into the fine lines around my eyes. That meant it was time for a new concealer which is easier said than done because if you are like me and your only option is to shop online for clean cosmetics. Then be prepared for a lot of failed attempts and wasted product and money 💸before you end up with the perfect match. Which brings us to today’s product review the @erinsfaces concealer.

🍃The product is made of only clean, green and vegan ingredients 🍃is buildable and covers beautifully and there is minimal creasing plus it’s very long lasting. Given that I have only worn it during cool weather and it’s true test will come in the grueling, sweaty summers of Dubai when everything melts off your face 🌤🔥. But I will update on the summer wearability later on in the year. In terms of color matching the pictures on the website do not accurately represent the shades. I bought the oak shade based off the color card on the website and it turned out to be too light for me. 🍃The oak in my experience is for people who are light medium in complexion. If you are of Pakistani, Indian complexion then your best and true match will be the cedar which looks orange on the website but is actually a medium dark shade. 🍃In the second picture you can see both shades side by side for a better comparison.

🍃You can also view a Video review of the concealer by clicking on the link. ⤴️

🍃In terms of packaging it comes in a glass bottle so totally ♻️. It retails at $25 for 8 ml which is a fair price. My only peeve is that the shipping is $8 😳which I find too much given that sometimes I only want to buy one product from their site and they never have free shipping ☹️Repurchase : 👍🏼 Recommend: 👍🏼
