Wella Shimmer Delight Shine Review October 12, 2012

Today I bring you the Wella Shimmer Delight Shine. I have a texture to my hair that makes it so that when my hair is clean it looks dry. I deep condition, I wash in cool water, I try everything and my hair always looks dull, even when I leave the salon. I have always longed to have the lustrous shiny hair that I see everywhere. When Total Beauty asked me if I wanted to try this, I jumped…I’ve tried everything so I was ready to try more.

And this works! I get my hair in the style that I want and then spray about 3 pumps from arms length away from my head and my hair looks glossy and beautiful. It doesn’t weight down my hair and it doesn’t look greasy. I don’t end up with oily hands, like with some solutions. This is the perfect 30 second method to boost my style. The only downside is that the next day my hair ends up fairly oily looking, not the natural glossy look of the previous day. I like to get 2-3 days out of my hair, and this gives me 1 styled day and one pony-tail day.  The positive aspects of this spray are so amazing that they far outweigh the frequent wash inconvenience.

I have added this to my personal beauty arsenal. I would highly recommend this to anyone who suffers from dry, dull looking hair.

Will I finish the sample? Yes

Would I buy this again? Yes!!!

May Inaugural Total Beauty Collection – Wrap Up July 11, 2012

I’ve had a chance to use and review all of the products from April and decide on how much I liked them. So now it is time to do my bag wrap up.

In case you don’t remember, here is a summary of the Awesomeness level:

Box Awesomeness Level Review (AL)

  • 5 points for an item that surpasses everything else I’ve tried and becomes my #1 choice for what role it fulfills
  • 4 points for an item that becomes added to my permanent collection of cosmetics and I will repurchase
  • 3 points for an item that joins my “I might buy this again” list
  • 2 points for an item I finished or will finish the entire sample of but in the end decided not to re-purchase
  • 1 point for an item that I tried and immediately threw out/gave away
  • 0 points if the item was a duplicate of something from a previous bag/box/kit that only scored a 1 in that box – meaning I knew enough to not even bother with trying it.
  • Don’t forget that I subtract 1/2 point for samples that can only be used 2 or fewer times.

May Inaugural Total Beauty Collection – Initial Impressions May 15, 2012

Oh my goodness I have been getting a lot of my subscriptions over the last week – must catch up – must start reviewing! Yikes.

Yet another site has jumped on the sample bandwagon. This month was Total Beauty Collection’s inaugural set. Total Beauty Collection is a curated set of 4-6 deluxe beauty samples each month for $15.00/month.  I got the email and I bit. I really am having a good time with all these sample companies and trying all the different products – many of which I never knew existed.

Total Beauty has taken a different approach on its packaging. The parcel is neither bag nor sturdy box…it is what is known as a “pillow box” (yes I had to google it) and it has a cut out flap in which reside the samples. 

What was in the box this first month, you ask?
