If you don't know what Birchbox is, it's a subscription service that you can subscribe to for $10 a month or $110 for the full year. Each month you will receive a Birchbox in the mail and it contains 4 to 5 deluxe size samples, most are higher end beauty related products, but from time to time they throw in  what they call a Lifestyle Extra. I love the concept of Birchbox, because it allows someone like me that is on a small beauty budget to try out higher end products. I love to try out new stuff so this

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition

Wanted to tell you guys about a new product that I am trying out. It's the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner for dry or damaged hair. This shampoo and conditioner is formulated to work best on dry or damaged hair. I feel that my hair is very dry, sounds kind of crunchy when you squeeze it. I have naturally curly hair and I tend to flat iron it a lot so I’m sure that my hair has damage. So hopefully this shampoo and conditioner will improve the quality of my hair.

Garnier has spent 2 years formulating the Triple Nutrition shampoo and conditioner. It contains 3 weightless nutritive fruit oils, Olive, Avocado, and Shea. The conditioner is ultra rich and is supposed to rinse clean. This line also includes Nutrient spray and 3-Minute Undo Dryness Reversal Treatment. They have a suggested retail price of $3.99 for a 13 oz.bottle and $6.99 for a 25.4 oz. bottle.

This product claims to transform your hair with the most intense nourishment yet and that it nourishes hair to the core. Also states that hair shines from within. Claims that the conditioner will not weigh down you hair and reverses up to one year of damage in one week.

I have only used this product twice since receiving it for review from BuzzAgent, so this is by no means a review of this product, that will come later LOL. But with the 2 uses of this product I did notice that it does not seem to weigh down my hair like other conditioner usually do. My hair also feels somewhat smoother. This shampoo and conditioner also smells really good, which is something that I look for in my shampoos. I am anxious to see if this shampoo and conditioner will really reverse a year worth of damage in just one week. I’ll keep you posted!

Have you tried the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition line of products? What did you think about them?

I love L.A. Colors

L.A. Colors brand nail polish is one of my favorites! It's super affordable, comes in great colors, looks great and wears great on the nails. I was looking through the sales paper for Fred's and seen they had a set of 7 polishes for $5, so I went out today and picked one up. It's a Color Craze Limited Edition Series 2 Modern Metallics, and I love a good metallic nail polish! The set comes with 6 color polishes and one clear coat, which I do not like at all. I love all of the color polishes though. I don't like the clear coat because if you use one of the stamper things it will smear it. I tried it over one of the test nails that i had stamped about a week ago and it ruined it as you can see in the image below.

Have you tried any L.A. Colors nail polish? What's your favorite?

You can see how the clear coat smeared the stamp image on the nail at the far left.

Nail of the Week

I wanted a cool looking pattern for my nails this week, instead of the sparkles I've been wearing. For this nail look I used China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat, NYC Lavender Cupcake from their City Sweets Collection ( I wish I had this whole collection!), Avon nailwear pro in Decadence and NYC top coat called Grand Central Station.

I used the NYC Lavender Cupcake for my base color. I used Decadence for the stamp color. I used stamping plate m60 from Konad for the design.

Great Deal at CVS

I have been looking for the Wet 'n Wild Mega Shield lip stick in the shade Birthday Suit for a while now and I finally found one at my local CVS and boy did I get a great deal on it! Currently CVS is having a sale on Wet 'n Wild products 2 for $3. The lipstick is normally $1.99, which is not a bad price to start with, so with the sale it would have been $1.50, but there was a coupon to save $1!! So in the end I scored the lipstick for only $.60!!

If you are like me and you love Wet 'n Wild products head out to your local CVS! The 2 for $3 sales ends on April 28th! If you already took advantage of this sale, what items did you pick up?

Remington Curling Wand

I have naturally curly hair, but I love to use a flat iron on it and when I do, it makes it stick straight and I feel like it needs some kind of texture to it. I have tried a couple different things to add soft curls to my now flat ironed stick straight hair and nothing would work.
