Planning on using a couple of these beauties tonight and will be back to post my initial thoughts on them here. Smiley Happy Thank you again!

 

ETA: first impressions...

BRIOGEO - Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack

Spoiler
I used the Briogeo shampoo and conditioner this morning and wow! This stuff smells amazing! Reminds me of banana candies, a bit like banana runts. Bananalicious! But the scent isn’t the only noteworthy thing about these products. The shampoo has a thinner consistency to it, lathers well and leaves my hair clean without feeling dry, strangly or stripped of its oils or moisture. In fact, my hair feels really soft, light and nourished. The consistency on the conditioner reminds me of a smoothie and the ingredients list makes me think of (and want) a tropical smoothie – banana, coconut, pineapple, papaya, mango and more!! It’s lightweight, creamy and does an excellent job of detangling my hair and making it look and feel soft, smooth and shiny – glossy shiny, not greasy shiny. 

KéRASTASE - Nutritive 8H Magic Night Serum

Spoiler
The Kerastase night serum is described as “a leave-in, overnight serum that nurtures and detangles hair while you sleep.” Sounds dreamy. Smiley Wink  The bottle is beautiful and serum itself is lightweight and smells really good. The scent is familiar to me but I can’t figure out what exactly it is.  A little of this goes a long way so this bottle is going to last.  The serum applies very easily and does not weigh down my hair – a huge plus, but I do need to remember to focus the product on the ends and length; if I put too much on the top or crown of my head, it can look a bit greasy by the end of the day. I don’t typically get 8 hours of sleep and the night I used it I got 6 and the next morning I woke up and made my way to the bathroom to check on my hair and …. whoa!! Color me impressed.  My hair looked and felt soft, silky, smooth and shiny. This made a very good first impression. I’m looking forward to using this one again.

 SEPHORA COLLECTION - Exfoliating Wipes - Bamboo - Matifying

Spoiler

I love bamboo as a skincare ingredient and was excited to have received these Sephora Collection Exfoliating Wipes. I’ve used a few different SC Wipes, both the regular and exfoliating ones. With the exfoliating wipes, I use the exfoliating side primarily on my nose because it can be quite harsh to use elsewhere on my face. On occasion, I will use the exfoliating side as a gentle scrub on my elbows and soles of my feet. The non-exfoliating side is much gentler and good to use all around. The bamboo one smells nice - clean; I’m not sure what bamboo smells like so I can’t say how closely it resembles the scent of bamboo. I like to keep these wipes in my gym bag, to use right after a workout and to clear my face of sweat, etc. before heading home to shower.

@RGbrown   Great idea to use the peach on your eye too; all I can really see is that shade on your eye and cheek, and it looks good!

I used the Briogeo Be Gentle and Be Kind shampoo and conditioner yesterday. I felt like I was cheating on my beloved Devacurl No Poo and One Conditioner but that is a whole other story. Prior to using these two products I did use a capful of the Olaplex 3 and l let it sit for ten minutes before jumping back into my shower. I used the shampoo next and the first application did not lather similar to the Devacurl No Poo. After I rinsed it out and did a second application it did lather. I applied the conditioner and let it sit a couple of minutes. According to my Devacurl stylist I need to leave some conditioner in my hair so that was exactly what I did. I then used my cocktail of Devacurl products and let my hair air dry which due to the high humidity here yesterday took nine hours. 

So if any curlygirls would consider switching to these products, I feel that the results are similar.

@Loretta55 Did you find that the scent lasted in your hair for any length of time?

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

The tropical scent lingered for a couple of hours @CookieGirl1. I kept sniffing my Aquis towel. There was no scent today.
