I have been getting some super cool influencer packages in the mail lately, and I get so excited! I think Brendan is starting to get annoyed by the amount of boxes and packages that pile up in our entry way – but it’s like Christmas for me. (Sorry, B!) A lot of people have been asking about how I get this stuff sent to me, and mainly it’s just Social Media Influencing (companies who want to work together to promote their product, and send me something in exchange for my opinion/ to promote on my Instagram). Whenever I am sent something for free, I still ALWAYS review it with my HONEST thoughts and opinions. In this post I am only going to review the hair and skin products I received this week, and I will be making a separate post next week with the clothes and accessories- so stay tuned for that! I am also going to be sharing some recent photoshoots I have done that I am SO excited about. If you ever have ANY questions about products or FAQ in general, please don’t be shy and send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send an Instagram message. I would love to do a FAQ post!
Sooooo.. here we go!
Tula sent me some new products from their Kefir Collection. They sent me their Moisture Repair Pressed Serum, and Replenishing Cleansing oil. This line is suppose to nourish and hydrate the skin, and is packed with vitamins and minerals. It hydrates from the inside out and leaves the skin super smooth. I LOVE the cleanser, I have never tried an oil cleanser and this leaves my skin feeling great. It is also 100% free from sulfates, parabens and animal testing- WIN! I would definitely add this as a staple to my skin care routine. The serum is great for when you really need a moisture boost and your skin is feeling super dull. A little bit really goes a long way, and makes a huge difference. You can use TULA15 for 15% off on their website!
Amika sent me a huge package stuffed with TONS of goodies. I couldn’t wait to try them as soon as I opened the package. First of all, let me start by saying these are the most AMAZING smelling hair products I’ve ever had. I would buy them literally just for the smell. I have tried every single thing that they sent me so I will go in order with my reviews:
Purple shampoo and conditioner– Love the way it toned my hair and didn’t over tone or leave grey or dull. A lot of purple shampoos leave my hair feeling stripped and dry and this did not. This is a super violet shampoo which means it has a really good powerful strength of toning.
Dry Shampoo& Conditioner- The dry shampoo was amazing and my hair smelled amazing all day long. It didn’t leave a heavy residue, or leave my hair feeling dry. I had never heard of dry conditioner but this stuff is CRAZY! It made my third day hair feel like I just did a conditioning treatment. YOU NEED IT!
Nourishing Mask- I love just about any hair mask, and this mask was no different. It really left my hair soft and nourished just like promised. Using this combined with the blow dry spray, made me feel like I just left the salon (which I can never get my hair to feel like, btw).
Bombshell Blowout Spray- This was one of my favorites. I love love love the way this stuff made my hair feel. It might be my new secret weapon. This spray truly let me sculpt the perfect Blowout.
Undone Texture Spray– I used this after I curled my hair and it changed the volume game for me. Most “volume” products I use only work for a few minutes, and then the effects wear off. Not only does this smell amazing, but adds amazing body without any type of stickiness or residue.
I can say I am truly obsessed with all of these products.. they are totally a game- changer to my every day hair routine. When I run out I will definitely be repurchasing! Thanks so much, Amika. Use code: amikaregister10love for 10% off on their website.
#3 FoxyBae 25mm Curling Wand
I was super excited to get this curling wand! I normally just use a regular one inch barrel curling iron, so I was excited to try something new. I tried this last night before going out with friends to test out the claim that this creates “the longest lasting curls ever”. This was the perfect time to test it out, since I was dancing and running all over the place like a crazy woman. I really liked the beach-wave like curls this wand produced (I included a picture of the results), and they did last through the entire night- even in the wind! I would have to re-curl however, if I wanted to wear the style again the next day (which I normally would have to do anyways since my hair doesn’t really hold a curl). I would totally recommend this wand for a really nice lose curl. They also have all different kinds of hot tools on their website and currently right now you can pick two for $149 on their back to school special!
That’s all for this week! Like I mentioned, I’ll be back next week with the different clothing and accessories I’ve received and also an inside look at some of my recent photoshoots.
Thanks for following along!
