Clear Scalp and Hair Beauty Therapy Review

Hello Everyone!
Today's product review is on the Clear Scalp and Hair Beauty Therapy Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner that I received in my Summer Beauty Vox Box, complimentary of Influenster.com for testing and review purposes!
I'm sure you have all been seeing this brand in the stores lately. They are in these sleek, light purple tubes and you can't help looking at them. At least that's how I felt when I first saw them landing on the shelves of my local Targets.


Retails: 
$4.99-$5.99
Select retail stores, drugstore, ect

Clear Scalp and Hair Beauty Therapy is available in six different shampoo's and five conditioners that are supposed to help different hair needs. This line also has nutrum10TM technology that involves the infusion of many vitamins and nutrients that are good for hair. 

Another very great thing about this, is the conditioner is instructed to be used on the scalp as well. 
Many don't know this, but the scalp is where all of the hair comes from and without a healthy scalp, healthy hair cannot be produced.

Packaging:
The ones I received in my box were great deluxe sample sizes, where as the full sizes look something like this.

The design itself is pretty unique, considering the way most shampoo's are packaged^^

Consistency/Texture:
Like any shampoo and conditioner, they consistency was good! I loved the conditioner, especially because of how smooth it made my hair. The shampoo doesn't bubble up and easily as some other of my favorite shampoo's but it still did the job.

Scent:
I love how this smells! It makes your hair smell amazing and the great thing is, the scent stays for quite a while. It's not overly scents where the scent hurts your nose, but there is a very distinct scent to it that I find very enjoyable^^

Lastly, does this live up to it's name of clear scalp and hair? Does it really nourish your hair and change the texture of it in just 7 days?

Final Verdict:
Yes, it lives up to it's name of helping my scalp and the flakiness that I suffer from, but I didn't really see a big difference, I FELT it. My hair felt smoother than it did before and I have naturally oily root's but dry ends, and I always try to treat my ends. Using this shampoo and conditioner, I noticed that my hair was much smoother at the ends and drier on my roots (which I am actually thankful for^^). It was dry, but not like a bad dry feel. 

Overall, I love this shampoo and conditioner and I hope you do too!

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen

Today's product review is on the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen that I received complimentary from Influenster's Summer Beauty Vox Box program for testing and review purposes!
I have been looking for a body lotion that has SPF in it for a long time and this was the perfect product for this time of year because I really needed it!

Retails for $8.99 for a 6 oz. Bottle
Available in SPF 12, 30, 50!!

Packaging: 
The full size of this product actually has the dispenser facing down with a flat cap which is great because you can apply it directly to your body without having to tip the bottle down because it is always down! Also when you are nearing the end of this product, no need to shake and wait for the rest of the product to come to the bottom!

Texture/Consistency:
This basically just feels like a nice lotion! It really softens up the skin and also you can feel the hydrating ribbons melt into your skin^^

Scent:
The scent is very nice. It smells like coconuts and pineapple to me. It's not strong and obnoxious like some lotions can be. It's very nice and appealing. 

Lasting Power:
My legs and arms felt very moist and soft until the end of the day,  because you should reapply your SPF every two hours, I reapplied this throughout the day to continuously protect myself from the sun, and you should too!

Final Verdict:
I really like this! Would I repurchase it? I definitely would only if it didn't have avobenzone and oxybenzone in it! I like my physical sunscreens rather than chemicals, but if you don't really mind, I would get this! It's a really great body lotion that also helps protect!

That is all for this review!

Hope you enjoyed!

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color

Hi Everyone!
Today's product review is on the Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail color which was in my summer beauty voxbox that I got complimentary of Influenster.com for review purposes!
The magnetic polish trend is booming and the first time I ever saw this type of polish was when I was in sephora and the brand, Nails Inc had come out with a Magnetic polish! The polish has little metallic particles which then form the cool wave like effect on your nails after you place the magnet above the wet polish^^
It's a really cool concept and I was happy that I got this in the vox box!

Retails for $9.99
This is in the shade: 905 Red-y Response
Packaging:
It comes in a glass vial with a cap that actually is the magnet. When you pull that cap off, the polish applicator is underneath, sealing the polish shut from any air going in. This reminded me of how Chanel nail polishes have the extra cap on top of the actual applicator, but this time the cap had a purpose^^



Texture/ Color:
It's very pigmented and opaque so one coat would do the trick if you are going for the color, but in order to get the wave effect, you have to add a second coat and then place the magnet on top, without touching the nail. It goes on smoothly and isn't goopy at all.

Lasting Power:
This lasted for a good two weeks without chipping and I think that is pretty good, considering I didn't use a great base and top coat like I usually do.
Now, because this is very pigmented, it can stain your nails if you don't use a base coat, so I highly suggest using a good base coat before applying this to your nails.


The staining  leave my nail look pink, but after a day, it's gone! So no worries!

Final Verdict:
I really like this! I love the effect because it's very edgy and different and I love the shade that I got. It's perfect for fall which is coming soon!!^^

That is all for this product review! Hope you enjoyed!!
