Spring is coming, which is always a great time to refresh your beauty routine. Meijer sent me a few new products to try to break out of my beauty rut. The first was TRESemmé’s Beauty-Full Volume Reverse Wash System. If you haven’t heard of this, you condition your hair first, then you wash it. Crazy, I know!
This takes a little getting used to. The first time I did it, I really had to think about it. We are so used to washing first then conditioning and you don’t realize how often you just autopilot that task. I almost forgot to wash on my first try. This set also came with the Maximizer, Mousse and Hairspray for an extra volume boost. My hair is BABY Fine so I am always in desperate need of volume. For reference, this is my hair in a ponytail…I have to wrap a tiny hair tie around at least five times:
I was skeptical of this at first, because I thought my hair would be extra tangly without using conditioner at the end of my shower. I usually blow dry my hair upside down and when I flipped it back I actually said “WOAH” out loud. I couldn’t believe how volumized my hair was. It was also so soft and I didn’t have as many flyaways as I normally do. I am totally sold on TRESemmé’s reverse system. This is what my hair looked like after I flipped it back over. Total volume:
Next up is Garnier’s Micellar Water. You may have missed my previous post about Micellar water and how awesome it is. This is a quick and easy way to cleanse your face at night and has been around for years. I had yet to try Garnier’s version and was pleasantly surprised. I loved the size of the bottle because it lasted a while. I am a HUGE fan of removing your makeup before bed – you can ask any of my girlfriends, I am always the one on trips making sure everyone has taken their makeup off. Someone once told me that sleeping one night with your makeup on ages your skin by SEVEN years! I don’t know if that is true or a myth, but I don’t take any chances. Micellar water is a quick and easy solution to the too-tired to take off your makeup problem.
You may have noticed how white my legs were in my last Meijer post. I am in desperate need of some sun, but without the nasty UV side effects. Enter Jergens and the Natural Glow line. I like this line, because you can apply it gradually without streaks. It’s basically foolproof. Now Jergens has stepped it up by making this moisturizer reduce the appearance of cellulite. Tan and smooth!
