OK, you might be wondering why I am talking about blond hair care when I am brunette, I have a good reason! My daughter is blond! She is at an age where she cares deeply about hair care, and really wants products which will keep her blond hair vibrant and healthy. In addition to being blond, she has fine hair which is also very curly, so finding the right products to keep her hair in tip-top shape is always a challenge.

I was thrilled when Kerastase reached out to send me a few products to try out. My daughter had been looking for new hair care products, and the Kerastase Blond Absolu line sounded exactly like what she needed. I decided to have her try the products out, and if she loved them, I would share them with you. Guess what, she loved them!!

She has naturally blond hair, but a little over a year ago she dyed her tips blue. The blue didn’t stay blue, it turned aqua and then a funny green color. So, in order to restore her natural blond hue, we had the blue dye removed, and highlights added to the bottom half of her hair where the color had been. The top of her head is natural, and the bottom half matches her natural color perfectly. This means her hair care needs to work on natural blond hair as well as processed. Thankfully Kerastase Blond Abolu worked it’s magic!

She loves the shampoo which keep her hair hydrated and vibrant. She also uses the mask occasionally and she says it purifies her hair. If her hair seems dry from swimming or being at the beach, she uses the serum overnight to restore moisture an vibrancy.  The cicaplasme is great to protect her hair when she blow dries it. All in all, she is in love with this line and wants to use it for the long haul. We will be buying a new bottle of the shampoo shortly!

I too love Kerastase products, so in the shopping widget below I have linked to the Blond Absolu products my daughter loves as well as the products I love to use too on my brown, and slightly dry, hair. I hope you love this line too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall skincare routine

The fall season has arrived! As the autumn season moves in, temperatures are moving into moderate territory. This means it is a great time to mix up my skin routine!

If you are like me, you spent a lot of time outside this summer. After all, it was one of the few places we could go during lockdown. This left my skin a little blotchy and dry. Therefore, the fall season is all about repair! This dark spot remover by ReVive is ideal for lightening dark spots left by the sun. It really brightens my skin. I use the Elemis Moisturizer in the morning, and the ReVive dark spot corrector at night as my moisturizer. It works really well!

This ReVive neck cream is a favorite of mine. I have been purchasing it since I was 28, and now I am well into my 40’s. It has spf protection, and keeps my neck firm. I love it!

In the fall season, I love gourmand and warm scents. This honey vanilla collection from Colleen Rothschild is perfect for autumn. It’s warm, and the perfect amount of silky sweetness. Plus, it does a great job of cleaning, and smoothing, my skin.

I have purchased the body butter in the past. I definitely go through this jar! One lasts me about six months. It smells so good, plus it corrects dry skin; leaving it smooth. It’s a must-have not only for fall, it’s a must-have all year long! Love it!

OK raise your hand if you hair is terrible right now! I spent the summer in the sun, and in the pool. Not only that, I have not had my highlights touched up since the first week of March! Our salons just reopened, so I need to run down there and get some color repair done. Aside from that, my hair has split ends, chlorine damage, and sun damage. Thank goodness for this hair care collection from Colleen Rothschild! I am using this fabulous hair mask every Sunday, and it is really helping my dry hair. I also love this hair serum, which is great to put on after I dry my hair. It smooths down my hair leaving it soft and controlled. Love that! I’m not sure how I survived before owning it!

The fall season is all about repairing the damage to our skin and our hair from all the fun we had in the sun over the summer! Everything I am showing in this post will help repair and correct summer damage. I love these products!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pureology hair care review

OK, raise your hand if your hair is crazy-dry this year! My hand is waaaaaay up! If you are like me this year, you are spending the majority of your time outside. Since pretty much everything indoors is closed, with the exception of supermarkets and some stores, we have all been outside in the sun, at the pool, and at the beach. This has wreaked havoc on my hair; not to mention I have not been able to get my hair trimmed since March due to all of our salons being shut down. My hair is so dry, and in need of a haircut. Thankfully the Pureology products are saving me!

I was thrilled when Pureology sent me a PR package filled with their hair care products. I quickly found the purple bottle, the Hydrate collection, was the ideal line for my dry hair. I have been outside a lot, plus swimming in the pool more than usual. This has caused my untrimmed ends to become very dry, and close to getting brittle. I am loving the Pureology Hydrate collection because it has restored hydration to my ends, and my hair in general. While it cannot trim my hair for me, it does keep it healthy. Which is what we all need right now anyway!

I love that Pureology was created right here in California. Yay local!! In addition to being local, Pureology offers sulfate-free and vegan products which are professional quality. Salons always have the best products, and even though we cannot go to them right now, it is nice to be able to get that professional, salon quality hair care right at home. Love this!

Pureology is not only sulfate-free, and vegan, their products are made without parabens and mineral oil. This helps keep their products safer for the environment and for us, the users. Love! Plus, yes there is more, the packaging is made from 95% post consumer recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable. Love that!

OK, let me swing back around to how it hydrates my hair. Once a week I love to use the Pureology Hydrate Soft treatment. I am using this treatment after I shampoo and conditioner my hair. It really makes my hair healthy and hydrated by using key ingredients such as shea butter and sweet almond oil. It smells so good! I am addicted to this product!

On days when I don’t wash my hair, I can easily refresh it with the Pureology Refresh & Go dry shampoo. This dry shampoo works really well and doesn’t leave any white residue. It’s really awesome!

If you are not looking for hydration like me, Pureology also has a fabulous collection of strengthening and volume hair care products. I will include them in the shopping widget below. You can click on each one for more information.
