@Ispend2much6 Hooray for coffee! I'm glad you like the one you've tried so far. I still wish Peet's would roast some of their beans to medium instead of dark—and I'm a big fan of dark roasts but you know, a few varietals need a slightly lighter roast to bring out all their complexity. Then again, sometimes Peet's "dark" roast is closer to medium anyway, and their roast level usually doesn't overpower things. All that rambling is to say "thank goodness the Nicaragua beans are tasty even when dark roasted." 🙂 And you've reminded me I've been wanting to try that specific Koh Gen Do powder against my tried and true setting powder. Just placed a Macy's order to use up some points. If I recall correctly, this powder contains a mint oil. We'll see how my skin handles it. Enjoy all your treats, including the Pat McGrath goodies!

@TeamBIC Realistically, it takes me considerable time to work through hair products, thanks to being blessed with thin hair. My hair is also untreated, and has not been colored in many years, and receives minimal heat styling. Some of the products require a trial period, so please be patient as I want to be thorough. OUAI Hydrating Scalp Serum for Healthy, Fuller Looking Hair 2 oz / 60 mL I have only used one scalp serum before, so I read through the directions and expected results, in addition to verified reviews carefully. The results reported on this were from a whopping 16-week study, so hang in there! Scent: “Capetown,” which is a ‘calming and earthy fragrance of spearmint, ginger, basil and green fig.’ I could definitely note the spearmint, which was soft without leaning medicinal. Overall, it was fresh and herbaceous; I would love a body wash in this scent. One of the reviewers stated she was “getting some gray hair” and “it looks so much more healthy.” She also also noted that she did not notice any buildup even after three days without washing. I also have not noticed any buildup; however, I do have a few very unruly and frizzy grays that would benefit from appearing healthier. I have tried it three times so far, and was pleased to find that whether applied when my hair was wet or dry, it did not weigh it down or make my roots appear greasy. I did experience a few closed pores, each one fairly large and resolving on their own after a couple of days. Not a huge deal, although a couple were noticeable near my hairline. This one will take some time and I am in it for the long haul and will report back on any updates/changes. Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment Hair Oil I am very familiar with this one, so much that I have been babying this mini I received nearly a year ago, for months. And then comes along its 10x bigger Mama 🙂 This scent is one of my absolute favorites for hair care; warm and spicy. The biggest challenge I find with using this is that it is a thicker oil, so it can quickly turn my thin hair greasy-looking. For that reason, I prefer to use it strictly as a treatment, rather than as a styling aid. JVN Complete Blowout Styling Milk 3 oz / 90 mL This is a brand I have have been interested in exploring, so I was elated to find this bottle in my gratis. I rarely try new hair products as it takes me sooooo long to get through them. I can’t tell you how fun it is to try something completely new, because you never know! I first combed through a few reviews, to see if anything stood out, or others offered suggestions based on their hair type. Some of the things that stuck out to me: Seems to help with frizz after heat stylingHair dries fasterMade coarse hair super knottyRated 27/100 on the Yuka App What I first noticed is the scent, which reminds me of being in a salon. My stylist years ago used Biolage, which I think is what I pick up - that scent - and it brings back some fun memories of that time in life. It is slippery, and after applying, leaves my hair with a slight ‘coated texture.’ I have tried it once so far, in conjunction with the Buttercup, and plan to try it again with the blow dry brush I normally use. One thing I did not notice was shine. After the Buttercup, my hair felt quite soft, but was noticeably frizzier than when I use my other styling products. Using a traditional blow dryer does typically make my hair appear frizzy though, so until I use it with the brush, I cannot say for sure what the source is. K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Molecular Hair Repair Value Set – Full-Size Repair Mask & Free Travel Detox Shampoo Peptide Prep Detox Shampoo This detox shampoo has a very soft, subtle scent that is clean and not at all medicinal. I have used it once and plan to use it 1x week for my deep cleansing routine. It felt gentle and did not leave my hair too ‘squeaky’ clean i.e. feeling like straw. Leave-in Molecular Hair Mask I am so, so excited to be trying this - I contemplated this set during the earlier sale but now am so thankful I did not pick it up! Since my hair is untreated, uncolored, and very minimally styled, I am curious how this will perform. It seems to be geared toward those which extremely damaged and processed hair, so I will be paying close attention to those who might benefit more noticeably from this one. The directions state to use it for the first 4-6 washes, and then every 3-4 washes as needed. I have used it once and my initial impression was that it did not weigh my hair down, and left it looking as usual, although perhaps a bit softer to the touch. At this rate, it should take 2-3 weeks of consistent use for any major changes to stand out. updates to come! Drybar Buttercup Blow-Dryer I have never owned a bona fide heavy-hitting blow dryer like the Buttercup, so I was stunned to receive this beauty. The last blow dryer I purchased was over five years ago, and it was the most money I have spent on one, which is probably why it is still working. That being said, I do not use it very often as my hair ends up fairly frizzy and only a flat iron will calm it. After two uses, I have noticed a few things that stand out about the Buttercup. The biggest difference when compared to other styling tools I have used is surprising, and one I had not even considered when using other tools. After I finished drying with it, I noticed a total of three strands of hair on the counter top. When using my blow dry brush, a massive cleanup effort is required to remove numerous strands. It made me realize that perhaps, my brush is too harsh, and a contributing factor to my thinning hair. The Buttercup is much quieter in comparison, something I also appreciate as there are usually others sleeping when I am styling my hair. It also felt cooler on the medium setting, which I think would be healthier for my hair than heat. Oddly, I noticed more frizz with the diffuser than without, although it could be the JVN that I had applied rather than the diffuser tip. It appears that both tips are the same; I am guessing one is a backup. Overall, in the long run, this might help my hair regain some fullness. In conjunction with the Ouai, I am hoping that in a few months, maybe by summertime, the breakage loss will be minimized and there will be more to style if I switch over to using the Buttercup solely. Project Sunshine Locks in effect!

Cleaning silicone
Does anyone know how to clean those little silicone lip brushes? Like the ones that come with the Laneige lip sleeping mask.
