Philip B pH Restorative Detangling Toning Mist

pH Toning Mist

Made with apple cider vinegar, Philip B pH Restorative Detangling Toning Mist is a marvelous addition to your hair routine. Suitable for all hair types, this paraben-free leave-in mist helps combat frizz and keeps your hair clean and healthy by adjusting the pH of tap water as well as toning hair from root to tip.  I highly recommend this product for those who notice a difference in the water after showering while traveling.  For instance, when I’m in Boston, my hair is greasier and the water is harsher in comparison to when I’m in NYC.  I realize that sounds strange, but this product really helps keep my hair balanced.

Best used out of the shower as a detangler (saturate hair and comb through-don’t worry, it’s light weight and non-greasy thanks to it’s plant-based conditioners Gardenia, Lavender and Sweet Almond Oil).  I’ve also benefited from spraying it in my hair prior to straightening. Not only does it provide a protective shield but also adds a nice shine (not to be confused with grease) to my locks and mixes well with my straightening balm.

So if you can get passed the idea of your hair smelling like salad dressing (literally, think spritzing apple cider vinegar in your hair), and embrace the amazing benefits of this natural astringent,

L’Oreal Paris Becomes Star Worthy as They Celebrate their 100th Birthday

loreal walk of fameL’Oreal Paris received a very special birthday present this past week when the Hollywood Chambers of Commerce presented them with a Friend of the Hollywood Walk of Fame star.  Spokeswomen Eva Longoria Parker, Andie MacDowell, and Kate del Carsillo joined brand president Karen Fondu on Hollywood Boulevard to accept the award.

L’Oreal is giving the Walk of Fame a make over by helping to fund its restoration, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year.

“Many acclaimed actors have delivered L’Oreal Paris’ iconic phrase, ‘Because You’re Worth It’,” said Karen T. Fondu, president of the L’Oreal Paris division of L’Oreal USA, Inc. “As an aspirational brand, L’Oreal Paris appreciates its close association with the entertainment industry, from our long-standing partnerships with our spokespeople to our annual presence at award shows.

Carol’s Daughter Lemon Ginger Mint Manicure in a Jar

carols daughter
2 oz. $11.50

Directions: Rub gently and let the salt exfoliate, while the shea butter moisturizes.  Rinse off the excess salt and dry your hands.  Your hands will feel silky smooth in just a few seconds.

Holy smokes Batman! This product is serious stuff.  I scooped some out from the jar and rubbed the concoction all over my hands.  At first I questioned the ‘silky smooth’ result, considering how hard the salt was exfoliating my skin.  Then after rinsing the shea butter absorbed into my skin and BAM! My hands were the softest they’ve ever been.  Finish with a hand cream or just call it a day.

Please note, while the packaging says ‘with fragrance of vanilla, musk, and lemon balm,’ all I smell is the shea butter.  Sure if you inhale hard enough, you will get hints of the other ingredients. While I’m a fan of the restorative properties of shea butter, I’m not crazy about the smell.  But this product is so impressive; I’m willing to overlook it.  Now if only a hand massage and manicure came along with the product, I’d never step foot in a parlor again.  Until then …

This product does not contain parabens, sulfates or synthetic fragrances and dyes.
