Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue Review

Damage Rescue Review

It has taken people a while to discover that healthy hair starts at the roots! Head & Shoulders  figured that a long time ago and has improved and expanded their products. The product I was able to check out that I received from Influenster was Damage Rescue. The Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue system I supposed to  nurture the scalp & dry damaged hair with intensive care, leaving hair up to 10X Stronger in Just Four Washes. 

Since changing up the way I take care of my hair I have discovered that if you treat your hair nicely form root to tip your hair grows and acts the way it's supposed to.  I wash my hair every other day or more to keep essential oils that my curly hair needs.  So, I made sure to use Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue for a little over two weeks to do a real review.  

The Damage rescue shampoo and conditioner has really helped my winter dry scalp. It took away the flakes and my scalp just felt better.  The down side for me is that I don't feel any extra moisture when I get out of the shower. With my regular shampoo and conditioner I can really feel the softness when I get out of the shower. But, after I style my hair after using the Head & Shoulders shampoo and Conditinoer it feels fine. Over all if you're looking to help out your scalps health, this is a great product for you.

Happy Washing!

Forever Red Exclusively at Bath & Body Works

Forever Red by Bath and Body Works is a very strong sent for me but, by no means a bad scent. I would give this as a gift for someone that can handle heavier scents.  It reminds me of Bath and Body Works' Japanese Cherry Blossom. 

Since I'm horrible at describing scents: Bath & Body Works' describes their new sent as " a longest lasting fragrance blends opulent notes of fiery red pomegranate and delicate peche de vigne, a rare and fleeting French peach. Soft petals of red osmanthus give way to notes of addictive velvety marshmallow and a surprising finale of rich vanilla rum that leaves an unforgettable impression."

You can find Bath and Body Works products store near you or online at

Thank You to Bath and Body Works and Influenster’s VoxBox program for letting me try Forever Red out!

Gillette Venus Embrace Review

I loved the Gillette Venus Embrace for shaving my legs!

The Venus Embrace razor has five blades for a close smooth shave. The blade refills fit any Venus handle so you pick you favorite one without having to purchase a whole new razor. The blades move easily so there are no nicks after shaving.  Just smooth legs! So you might be thinking the price is up there but, with having versatility, they are worth every penny. And there are always coupons! ;)

I chose the Venus & Olay blade refills that have Olay Moisture Bars right on the blades, that contain skin conditioners really helped moisturize my dry legs. I'm pretty sure the other blades are just as good, but I just need the moisturizer.

Thank You Infuenster and Gillette for letting my try this great razor.
Happy Shaving!

COVERGIRL Blast Flipstick Review

The idea of Covergirl's Flipstick is great because you can get several looks from on lipstick.  I call it the "3- in- one lipstick!" You can use both the colors by themselves or one on top of the  other. Most of the colors felt moisturizing, except for the one with glitter in it.  The glitter felt gritty. The colors lasted a long time. The downfall is the taste, this is why I only wear select lipsticks.  But it was not unbearable. The price is decent for the choices you get. It is about the same price as most drugstore lipsticks. From the colors that I have received and have seen, you have to like color.  These are for people that want to make a statement. Thank you to COVERGIRL and Bzzagent for giving me the opportunity to try this product out!

Cure your dry winter skin with Burt's Bee's Intense hydration line


I tried the Intense Hydration Line from Burt's Bee's thru buzzagent. This line is definitely for people with super dry skin. I think of my skin as dry to combination skin. So I thought that this line would be great to try now, especially now that we're getting into winter time. The line is 99% natural and contains clary sage. All prducts from this line smell good, kind of citrusy, but not overpowering.

 The facial cleanser is the best part of the line for me because it cleanses the face well and moisturizes without feeling greasy or to heavy. The following pictures are my before & after pics, not touched up, no makeup, or products other than the Cream Cleanser. I used the cream cleanser for about 2 weeks.

Before Pic: Tight skin and a lot of redness.

After Pic: Skin not so tight and less redness.

The night moisturizer and treatment mask were just too moisturizing for my skin. There are more details in my video.

FTC:The Burt's Bee's Intense Hydration was given to me to review thru the bzzagent program.  I'm a bzzagent and got it for free. All opions are my own.
