PRODUCT REVIEW

FullSizeRenderIt’s that time again!  I’ve been on the hunt for a really good heavy lotion/cream to take care of my legs and ashy feet.  This whole time it was in my shop!  We have been carrying some Pure Anada products for a while and I was recommended to try this for my dryness.  It has changed my feet and my life!

Just a bit of info…

IMG_4959This instagram image sparked a bit of controversy over the last weekend.  It’s difficult to know how people feel about decor choices but as one disgruntled follower commented, we started to think that maybe some of you were also wondering.  We are an Eco-friendly hair salon.  We never said ever that we were vegans/vegetarians.  We never once said that we don’t eat meat.  What we have said is that we are a full service hair salon with an Eco-friendly edge.  Cow hide rugs are in fact very Eco-friendly.

Tenacious Talons: Brought to You by Priti NYC’s Nail Strengthener

Summer is a season of growth. The sun is full and bright in the sky, vitamin D is a-plenty, and our bodies soak it up like sun-starved cave dwellers. I find that my nails grow faster in the summer, but not stronger, so I’ve been testing out Priti NYC’s nail strengthener to help with that. It is Formaldehyde-free, easy to apply, and quick drying. Priti recommends using it as a base coat under your favorite polish, so I gave it a try under a really beautiful greeny-blue called Water Dragon. The polish adhered really well to it and my nails feel great!

Pure Anada Mascara

mascaraIt’s review time folks!  We’ve been carrying this product now for over a year and we’re moving it pretty decently.  I am going to be on my third tube in a few weeks and it got me to thinking…

Odacité

Odacite-Pure-Elements-Family-Pics-dropper-right-e1384291821805Odacité is a skin care line out of France that we are thinking of carrying in the new store.  It falls in line with our philosophy and has so many great benefits for those of us who are environmentally conscious.  Any of you ever heard about it?  It’s basically the best.  I sampled the balancing toner and one of the pure elements oils for three days and could not believe the results.  I will say that I am very fortunate to have decent skin, but considering this is the only face I’ll have till I’m deceased, I thought that I should prepare a regime for myself.

cr fashion bookI am a Norwex cloth user and then follow up with some body lotion.  Yup, I put body lotion on my face!  It’s crazy, I’m lazy…  What I’ve decided to do was order some full-sized products. I bought the toner and oil and added it to my regime and then added the facial moisturizer.  I’m completely pleased and satisfied, and I want everyone to try this product.  What we’re going to do is get some samples in and let you guys try.  The full line is quite extensive but we are thinking of getting the oils.  There are 18 vials and each have specific purposes.

Odacite Private Collection family pictureMy question is, what’s your skin regime?  How much do you spend on your facial routine?  Do spend anything?  Are you like how I used to be and don’t really value the time and care spent in a skincare routine?  I urge you to think twice about your routine because, as I mentioned earlier, it’s the only skin you have…  That’s the fresh perspective…

LiLash update…

So as promised this is my last post on the product LiLash.  I know that my lashes have grown and seem to be fuller but I’m not sure that I would buy this product again.  I ran out of the actual serum a few weeks ago but I think that’s cause of the way the bottle is shaped (and I did put the serum on my brows as well).

All in all, my lashes grew and seemed fuller.  My brows didn’t change at all.  Some people swear by this product.  I had a lady tell me she had to cut her lashes with scissors, they were so long!  I experienced some itching and a bit of a dry eye at night but that was it.

Yeah, that’s all I can say I guess.  Maybe try it? Maybe not?

Li Lash

So it’s been about six weeks since I started my Li Lash experiment.  I can’t say that I’ve noticed so much more growth.  I’ll be honest, in the six weeks I have missed about 8 days.  I’m not sure if this is reason that I’m still not noticing anything but…

DRY TIMES…

KEVIN+MURPHY+YOUNG+AGAIN+AND+SHIMMER+SHINE+SPRAY

Shimmer shine spray is great for static…shine too!

We have about 3 more months of the cold before we can look forward to the humidity, sweat, and mosquitoes!  How much more static can you take?!  With the on-and-off of toques and the constant friction of scarves, our hairs are suffering…

VERGE CURL STYX

DSCN0267_zps51ce61dfThis curling iron is amazing!  I just bought one yesterday and I love how easy it is to use.  It’s a curling wand with THREE sizes to choose from.  The wands heat up insanely quick and are super hot.  Because of the heat, make sure to use a heat protector with the wands.  Also, because it’s really hot, you don’t need to have it in your hair for as long as some other curling tools.

BEAUTIFYING ELIXIRS

0_0_0_0_542_244_csupload_56500190This is a new product line we’ve been trying for a little while. Still natural, still good for you and your hairs. Beautifying Elixirs is a unique line formulated for specifically damaged, processed or dry hair. The price point is quite high, so if your locks are healthy and shiny or if you’ve never colored you hair, it’s not for you.

There is absolutely NO WATER in any of the products so they are quite concentrated and potent. You don’t need much because a little really goes a long way. There are two shampoo and conditioner combos, a curl cream, a masque, a hairspray, a detangler/thermal spray, and the actual elixir.

Another great feature about this line is that all nine products have heat protection, UV protection and color protection. No sulphates, phthalates, parabens, or any of that yucky stuff. You just need to try.

For the month of September we would like to get you to try these products, if indeed you are a good candidate. We are selling the shampoo and you get the conditioner free. We know everyone enjoys a good BOGO….

Stay tuned for the details and if your interested come try it out! That’s the fresh perspective…
