Review: Philip B. Katira Hair Masque & Oud Royal Thermal Protection Spray

 
As Hollywood's preeminent hair-treatment expert, Philip B. has garnered international praise for his visionary approach to hair, scalp and body-care treatments. His award-winning blends, all based on pure botanicals and essential oils at potent, unheard-of-in-the-industry concentrations, have dramatically changed the way the world perceives luxury care for hair and skin.
"I love giving hair treatments and seeing people instantly transformed. Clients always say to me, 'If only everyone could sit in your chair!' But everyone can: It's not me – it's the products. All of them were tested on my clients, many of whom are famous people who need to have a great hair day, every day. From the first time I saw what pure botanicals could do for hair, especially when used at potent, active levels, I knew that I was onto something. And your feedback confirms that: Even if I'm not there, I can be there in spirit!" ~ Philip B.
Philip B. was kind enough to send me Katira Hair Masque & Oud Royal Thermal Protection Spray for review. 


 Katira Hair Masque is an intensive oil-free treatment that leaves coarse or curly hair feeling bouncy and silky-soft. Amazing for frizz-prone hair types.
  • Vogue magazine pick
  • Fights humidity and makes curls springy without weighing them down
  • The squeaky-clean version of a deep-conditioning treatment: You get all the vibrant shine and silkiness you could dream of without a trace of added weight or residue
  • Unique, clear-gel formula sinks right in to plump up fine, limp strands or calm and smooth unruly, tumbleweed hair
  • Makes the most of any hair texture, taking lush, light and manageable to a whole new level
  • Paraben free; color & keratin-treatment safe
 
Oud Royal Thermal Protection Spray is a weightless, time-released hair perfume builds sexy texture, enhances shine and protects against damage from heated styling tools. Apply as a pre-styling primer to elevate shine and prevent breakage and split ends.

A sexy, lingering hair fragrance that plumps up your hair and shields it against the ravages of heat styling. A mix of botanical hydrators (Safflower Oleosomes, Mongogo Oil, Vitamin E and Sweet Almond Oil) and a potent L-Amino Acid Complex repairs fragile strands as it protects.
  • Strengthens hair with a potent L-Amino Acid complex and amino acids and condition it with botanical hydrators so light and tiny that they’ll never weigh you down
  • Light, seductive notes of Oud, encapsulated in tiny safflower oleosomes, gradually release over time for a lingering, follow-me scent
  • Detangles and shields hair from the scorch of hot styling tools. It also builds in sexy texture: supremely plump, bouncy and satiny-soft
  • Creates an invisible, weightless shield against the sun, chlorine and salt water
  • Sweet Blue Lupine Peptides offer superior color hold to keep color from fading or turning
Review:
I have long hair and I am always trying to find products to help keep it healthy.  My hair is very coarse and dry so I am always testing products to help with that Within a few uses of using the masque I noticed an improvement in my hair. A little goes a long way with this masque so one tube will last you for awhile. My hair has been easier to brush through and is  silky soft. I straighten my hair at least 3-4 times and I am always worried about damaging my hair. I have tried a few thermal protection sprays but most left my hair feeling greasy and were too heavy for my hair. My first use of the thermal spray and I am in love. It smells so good and is lightweight! Since using I have noticed my hair is soft, shiny, and has really helped with less tangles. 
 
Overall, I am very impressed with Philip B. and I would highly recommend you trying there products. Not only do they offer hair care products but they also carry body care products.

Review: Lady Soma Argan Oil

 
 Lady Soma is one of my all time favorite companies! They recently gave me the chance to test out Lady Soma Argan Oil. I have long hair and it is a little dry. I am always looking for products to help tame my wavy, unruly hair!
 
 


What I LOVE most about this argan oil is that you can use it for both skin and hair. Who doesn't love a multipurpose product? One less thing in my already packed medicine cabinet! Since using this I have noticed a huge improvement in moisture and frizz in my hair. The oil absorbs quickly which is a plus for me. No greasy residue like other products I have tried. A little goes a long way so a bottle will last you for quite awhile. It can also be applied to face and body for anti-aging effects. It contains natural ingredients, fruit extracts and citrus oils, and it is free of alcohol, paraben, and sulfates.
 
Beneficial effects for both skin and hair - in one healthy product.

+ Sulfate Free
+ Paraben Free
+ Cruelty Free
+ Gluten Free

Review: CapriClear 100% Fractionated Coconut Oil Spray

The weather is hot and humid in Alabama. It's that time of the year when my skin goes crazy! I have eczema and sometimes the heat really makes it worse. I cannot tell you how many different facial products I have tried with no relief.
CapriClear recently contacted me about testing CapriClear 100% Fractionated Coconut Oil Spray. I use coconut oil quite frequently for oil pulling, hair treatments, moisturizing my skin, and bullet proof coffee. I love it so I was very excited to test the spray. 

 CapriClear is the ideal all-natural hypoallergenic solution to soothe and moisturize dry, flaky skin to reduce itching and irritation for people who are sensitive to ingredients commonly found in other products

 What I love most about CapriClear is it easy to apply. It is also colorless odorless, doesn’t stain clothing, and dries quickly. Children and adults can use this product. I love that it does not leave a greasy feeling after use. That is one of the big draw backs from other products I have used.  After a couple of weeks of use my eczema is under control and my skin feels moisturized and not dry. This has replaced a lot of products in my cabinet and I will be purchasing more when I run out.

Review: Sweetsation Therapy Svelte Pro Supercharged Organic Anti-Cellulite Treatment





Are you looking for a lazy way to reduce cellulite? Svelte Pro Supercharged Anti-Cellulite treatment was designed incorporating phosphodiesterase inhibitors or simply the entire array of known flub busters. In plain simple language, they stop production of the enzyme that leads to fat storage in our body and so cause the dimples to shrink. Many ingredients have this effect including, Caffeine, Kola nut and Juniper. Along side these are ingredients like, Butcher's broom which helps dilate blood vessels increasing circulation in the area- Gingko Biloba which is said to firm the skin and Lemon and Fennel which helps detox the body and repair skin. L'Carnitine, the latest break through in cellulite battle - is found naturally in the skin and supports the conversion of fat into energy. Formulated to work both on the surface and in depth, this revolutionary treatment has multiple performance that can be seen with the naked eye within 3-4 weeks. Firming on the surface, detoxifying on the inside, reducing water retention and fat cell clusters, while improving circulation and overall appearance of the skin. Even though we like the "lazy" way to reduce cellulite, for best and quickest results we still suggest to adopt sensible diet and regular exercise.

Directions: 
Apply in circular motions twice a day, on all affected areas, specially on thighs, buttocks, stomach - to help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. (Preferably two hours after eating or one hour before meal. Your body will only burn fat when it has none in the bloodstream.) This product creates slight "sauna" effect that may cause you to sweat more on the areas where the product was applied.

Review:
After a few weeks of using this treatment I started seeing results. My skin is firmer and tighter. Having cellulite on my thighs has really made me insecure. I am glad I found a cream that actually helps and is affordable. The ingredients in this cream are organic, non toxin, and all natural which makes me feel really good about putting it on my skin. The cream absorbs quickly and goes on smooth. Its very moisturizing and not greasy at all. I am definitely a huge fan of this cream and will be purchasing more in the future!

Review: Vionic Tide Sequin Sandals

Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. It's time to get those sandals aka flip flops out here in Alabama. Us girls here in Alabama LOVE  our flip flops. 

Vionic Shoes was kind enough to send me the Tide Sequin Sandals in bronze.  I am sure you are wondering what is so great about Vionic shoes? I promise you they are not your typical cheap sandal from Walmart! They offer sandals, shoes and slippers in streamlined silhouettes which feature concealed podiatrist-designed technology. This innovative Orthaheel Technology helps reduce over-pronation, which can improve foot function and relieve common associated pains such as plantar fasciitis (heel pain), knee pain and back pain. It is the only footwear recommended by both the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) and world-renowned integrative medicine expert Andrew Weil, MD.
Features:
  • Patent Pending
  • Manmade uppers
  • Lightweight, flexible EVA midsole absorbs shock, reducing stress on feet, ankles, and knees
  • Durable rubber outsole with a patterned tread provides traction on a variety of surfaces
  • Our innovative podiatrist-designed Orthaheel Technology provides superior orthotic support, relief and stability with helps realign the feet back to their natural position.
  • Research supports Orthaheel Technology’s success in reducing over-pronation, which can help relieve associated common aches and pains, such as heel pain (plantar fasciitis), knee pain and lower back pain
  • Recommended by renowned Dr. Andrew Weil
  • Received APMA Seal of Acceptance
Although I LOVE flip flops they do not offer the support I need. Usually at the end of the day my feet are sore and hurting. I decided to give my tide sequin sandals a test yesterday for Memorial Day. This Memorial Day we chose to spend it with my parents. We were on the river early that morning until late that evening. A lot of walking was involved and I am happy to say I am very impressed with these sandals. They are very comfortable and light weight. My feet are very happy and I did not complain all day! I am very impressed with Vionic and would highly recommend them if you are looking for something trendy, comfortable, and offer support at a reasonable price!

  • Built-in water filtration system to purify tap water for great taste
  • Portable 5-stage Ion Exchange filtration
  • Stylish, durable, and convenient hard plastic construction
  • Textured, easy-grip lid and matching straw
  • Dishwasher safe
Check out this awesome video on how the Zero Water Tumbler works:



 I LOVE my tumbler and carry it with me everywhere I go. It is very simple to put together. The water in my tumbler taste just like bottle water. I highly recommend you order you if you like bottle water and want to help save the planet by wasting less.

Review: Audio-Technica's ATH-CKX5iS SonicFuel In-ear Headphones

I love listening to music while walking or working out. Ever had your headphones fall out constantly while working out? I know I have and it gets very aggravating. My favorite headphones now are Audio-Technica's ATH-CKX5iS SonicFuel™ In-ear Headphones.


These in-ear headphones allow you to adjust their size and fit to your ear, which makes a HUGE difference when it comes to comfort and sound quality. 

The ATH-CKX5iS headphones offer 4 different size eartips (XS, S, M, L), and three c-tips (S, M, L) for a customized fit designed to stay in place, no matter what you're doing. That means no more fussing with one-size-fits-all headphones that don't stay in your ears. The unique eartips rotate a full 360° to automatically align with the angle of your ear canal, directing the sound towards your inner ear to avoid pressure and discomfort, while the c-tips fit the curvature of your ear for maximum stability.

Thanks to an in-line microphone and controller, the ATH-CKX5iS headphones function as an extension of your smart device and allow you to quickly answer a call, then return right back to your music. They're also available in several fun colors. My husband loves them and actually took them from me! That should tell you how awesome they really are!

Review: AZO Cranberry Gummies

Did you know that 50% of American women will contract at least one UTI in their lifetime and one out of three women will experience recurrent infections?
 
 
 
I personally know how painful they can be as I have had quite a few UTI'S. My mom and grandmother would always make me drink cranberry juice. I personally do not care for the taste! Yuck!
 
I was recently offered the chance to try the AZO Cranberry Gummies. I must say they taste so good! They are made with clinically proven Pacran, a super-concentrated, whole fruit cranberry powder. AZO Cranberry Gummies in a mixed-berry flavor helps flush to maintain urinary tract cleanliness.
 
 
 
That's right two gummies a day equal one glass of cranberry juice!! I do not know about you but I am so glad to not have to drink nasty cranberry juice anymore.

Review: Aloha Eyewear Sunglasses


Aloha Eyewear may have started small but they dream big.

Aloha’s dream team of designers create beautiful, exciting and innovative sunglasses, readers, and reading sunglasses for people who believe that life is a wonderful adventure, and fashion is an important part of it. They think you should look great and feel fabulous about yourself on this adventure, wherever it leads. They use only the highest quality, durable frame materials with optical quality lenses, so you will always have crystal clear vision on every adventure. Whether you want to look cool, casual, sophisticated or even “over the top”, Aloha has you covered.

For my review I received the Oxen 8115 Sunglasses & Oxen 81097 Sunglasses to try out. Both sunglasses are stylish, comfortable, protective, and very affordable. The frames wrap closely to the face, blocking out UV radiation and protecting eyes from light and debris almost every angle. They have flexible arms to ensure a comfortable fit for extended periods of use.

 It's warm out and during the warm months we spend a lot of our time on the water in our boat. I enjoyed putting the sunglasses to the test to see how well they would work. I was very impressed with the sunglasses. They are very comfortable and stay in place. They are super light!

I am very impressed with Aloha Eyewear! One of the things I love is that there eyewear is super affordable and very high quality. The company offers a 100% Happiness Guarantee! I highly suggest you head over to their website and take a look for yourself! I know you will find at least one thing you will love!
