One of my Summer Must-Haves!

My cousin Misty introduced me to this product last year.  It's a bikini hair remover. I was so thankful! It's kinda like a high quality Nair.  Nair never seemed to work for me...ever! This stuff works really well. It says to leave on for 5 min, a max of 10. I noticed that 5 didn't completely get it all, so I go for the max of 10. It worked like a charm! I also love the packaging! When you take the cap off, you have to turn the tip around until it clicks to unlock.  The tip is rubber and you rub it on your area so you don't have to actually touch the hair remover.  Then, once you are done, you simply twist the tip again to lock in place. It is a tad costly, at Sephora, but I feel like it's worth it! 

Have you tried it?

Why I will never go back to Sally's

Let me preface this post by saying I used to love going to Sally's. I went there all the time. I used to color my hair all the time too. (Since I was sixteen years old, to be exact.) The past few years I have stared going to the salon when I had the extra money. But recently, the hair coloring service hasn't been the greatest and I realized I did just about the same job as the beauticians, if not better. So, I decided to start doing my own hair again. 

I went to Sally's, just like I used to always do, and looked for a highlighter. Instead of going to my "old faithful" highlighting kit, I picked up this One n only Argon oil duo. I thought long and hard about it.  I literally stood there in the aisle looking at the pamphlet and reading about it for a good 15-20 minutes. Never once did anyone come and help me. I had lots of questions about it since I've never tried it before. So I decided to just ask someone about it at checkout. She talked to me about it and made sure I had the correct developer. I did. Then I went home to start doing it.

 I just want to point out the reason why I chose this product is because I used to use the One n only argon oil in my hair every day. I have tried many other oils for my hair, but I always go back to One n only because it's my favorite. So I just assumed I would love the high lift. Let's just say my hair did NOT take to the color at all! I don't have dark hair, my natural hair color is dirty blonde. I used to 40 developer, left it on for the MAXIMUM amount of time and it did not get as blonde as it was suppose to get. Instead, it turned out looking brassy, like that skanky peroxide blonde look. I freaked out and used my purple shampoo that takes the brassiness out of your hair. That did the trick. It absolutely did NOT turn out the way it was suppose to. I was very disappointed in the product. So I called Sally's and asked about their return policy. 

Now, Walmart, Drugstores, Ulta and Sephora will gladly let you return a product if you have tried it and didn't like it. I didn't use the whole product, I only used half. The manager at Sally's basically gave me the run around and made me feel like I didn't know what I was doing. She kept bringing up things I probably did wrong. I told her I followed the directions exactly and even verified it with the cashier. She made me feel like it was my fault and I did something wrong, and I even bought the wrong stuff. I told her obviously this conversation is going no where and I hung up. I'm sad to break up with Sally's, but I can't buy products from a place that doesn't back up their products. Never again. I used to buy  the Frost N Tip kit from Walmart when I was younger... Looks like I'll be doing that next time. Lesson learned.

June Favorites

Here are a few of my favorite beauty products for the month of June:

1. L'Oreal infallible 890 Bronze Taupe + 892 Amber Rush= Gorgeousness!!!! 
Just add a highlighter in the brow bone!

2. I love this Mario Badescu drying lotion.  I put it on before bed and it really helps to dry up my blemishes.  DON'T shake!!! The pink on the bottom has settled and is suppose to look that way.  The top is suppose to be clear, but I've used it sooo much and have knocked it off my counter on accident.

3. Sephora Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color in Petal Luster... very beautiful pinky nude.

4. Physicians Formula black felt tip eyeliner.  My friend Cole gave this to me for my birthday.  Love, love, LOVE this!!!! 

5. Dirty Works Ultimate Detox Mud Mask....smells so good too!

6. Urban Decay de-slick makeup setting spray.  Girls, you NEED this in the summer! This will help your makeup NOT melt off your face or look oily!
