John Frieda Frizz Ease Products for 2018

John Frieda's Frizz Ease hair care collection has a new color and a new look for 2018! This ultra violet line can be found on the shelves of drugstores and mass retailers everywhere. These products are known for fighting frizz, taming flyaways, and leaving your locks smooth and hydrated.

I was sent some product to try out from the collection including; Secret Weapon Touch-Up Creme, Air-Dry Waves Styling Foam, Daily Nourishment Leave-In Conditioner and Extra Strength 6 Effects Serum. 

This Touch-Up Creme is meant to be applied to dry hair to get rid of the frizzies and poof. It's great this time of year when the cold weather causes static frizz. I put just a teeny amount when I find my hair is not complying. 

This Styling Foam is meant to enhance natural curls and wave. My hair is stick straight so I thought I would pass this on to my twin niece's who have the prettiest thick set of natural curls. It gives their curly locks added shine and manageability. 

This Leave-In Conditioner not only conditions your hair but is a great detangler. It protects against breakage and split-ends and is also great if you blow dry and/or use an iron on your hair as it protects against heat. This has been a hair saver for my daughter whose long hair tangles easily. She spritzes it on her hair and her tangles are easily combed out. 

This Serum protects against frizz and leaves your hair silky soft. I apply a small amount on my hair when it is still wet for some added shine and smoothness. I have really fine hair so I avoid using this near the roots as it will make my already flat hair look even more so. This is great for those that have thick hair or waves. My mom loves this product, she uses it daily and her hair is sooo soft!

You can get these and other products in the Frizz Ease collection wherever hair products are sold.

Surya Brasil Lip Balm Review

You may recall a few months ago I posted a review for Surya Brasil Henna Cream hair products. Well, I also learned that this company also offers body care, nail care, and my favorite, lip care products! For those Girly Girl fans that have been following the blog for awhile you may know that I am a big fan of lip balms, and lip glosses. So, when I was sent some Brazillian lip balms for review from Surya Brasil I was pretty excited. 

These Tinted Lip Balms that can be purchased in a set of six colors (shown above) or individually, are the perfect way to give your lips much needed moisture during this cold season. They glide on smooth and leave your lips feeling soft and hydrated. I don't know about you but this weather is harsh on my lips, and dry chapped lips is one of the things I can not stand. As an added bonus these lip balms are tinted so they also provide your lips with a subtle hint of color. They are the perfect middle ground between lip care and lip color. I love them! The six varieties they come in include; Blood Orange, Coconut Nectar, Pink Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Sugared Fig and Vanilla Dragon Fruit. I was sent four of these lip balms for review including the Blood Orange, Pink Grapefruit, Pomegranate, and Vanilla Dragon Fruit. They smell amazing and Pomegranate happens to be my favorite, not only for the scent, but I love the color. It leaves a red tint on your lips that isn't too much. My 10 year old daughter stole the Pink Grapefruit from me which is fine because of the natural ingredients that help hydrate her lips and the color is not overpowering. As a young girl who wants so much to start experimenting with makeup, and me as a mom that is not quite ready for that, these lip balms are a perfect compromise. You can find Surya Brasil's Vegan Tinted Lip Balms at Whole Foods Markets, Pharmaca and Thrive Market. You can also purchase directly from the Surya Brasil Website.

Desert Harvest Aloe Vera Gele Review

Desert Harvest is a family owned and operated company that provides quality Aloe Vera and natural skincare, supplements and pet products. 

Recently I was sent a bottle of their Aloe Vera Gele for review. This product is made of 80%  pure Aloe Vera concentrate and other natural ingredients, formulated to provide you with a gel that relieves minor skin irritations and promotes healing. It works on skin rashes, dry chapped skin, insect bites, minor cuts and scrapes, sunburned skin and even minor kitchen burns.  The back of the bottle suggests to keep it in the fridge to apply cold to soothe swelling, irritation and minor burns anywhere on the body. I did just that because being that I love to cook, I regularly burn myself. Sure enough after a couple days of it sitting in my fridge I was taking a pan out of the oven and the rim of the pan touched my forearm. Ouch! I immediately reached for my Aloe Vera Gele and pumped just a small amount directly on the burn. The coolness of the gel quickly won over the burning sensation on my skin. I continued to apply the gele for several days until any evidence of my clumsiness disappeared. I was surprised because in the past when I have burned myself the skin tends to blister, itch and then form a scab and sometimes leaves a little scar. Not this time! You would never know I burnt myself and I am pretty sure that it is because I used this product immediately after. 

I have known about the healing properties of Aloe Vera for awhile now. I even have a plant growing in my front yard but it is not always convenient to run outside and cut a piece off of a leaf to get to the aloin inside. From my research I learned that Desert Harvest processes the whole leaves of the Aloe Vera Plant, not just the inner gel which allows all the ingredients of the plant to work together. This convenient bottle is a perfect addition to your family's first aid box or medicine cabinet. You can learn more about what makes Desert Harvest Aloe Vera so special here. Also be sure to check out their entire line of products

Snow Fox Skincare Review

Snow Fox is a natural and organic skincare line. Their products were originally formulated for hypersensitive skin but are highly compatible with all skin types. Their products are never tested on animals, in fact their strict policy against animal testing assures that they will not sell their products in regions were animal testing is mandatory. 

The Snow Fox line includes a Soothing Facial Cleansing Mousse, Arctic Breeze Detox Cooling Mask and a  Day and Night Defense Cream. I received their Arctic Breeze Detox Cooling Mask for review. 

This all in one detox mask moisturizes, brightens, and evens out skin tone while tightening pores. It's key ingredients are peppermint oil extract and Aloe Vera leaf all soaked into a 100% organic cotton sheet mask. Each mask is one time use, you simply remove it from it's packaging, unfold and spread over your face. It has convenient eye and mouth holes and fits perfectly. The mask is wet and cold making it refreshing to use on warmer days. Remove the mask after 20 minutes and rinse face with water. The mask left my skin feeling smooth and clean. 

These masks come in a package of 5 and can be purchased online . Be sure to follow Snow Fox on Instagram to find our more!
