Influensters Test Dessange Hair Care. Have You Joined Yet?

Some of you may have read or heard about Influenster.  If you have not, you can read my overview here.  The only thing better than getting a great deal and trying new things is trying new things for free.  Influenster always sends completely free items, so everything I received here was free.

Wen is my usual hair product and as you may know, I love it.  It is a cleansing conditioner, so it does not clean the same way a shampoo does.  Read more about how Wen cleans here.  I do tend to use other shampoos occasionally when I am in a hurry (Wen takes time) or I just want a deep clean.  Whenever I receive shampoos, I am not overly excited.  My hair tends to feel like straw on a Wen off day whereas it feels like silk on a Wen day.

FabuFinds: Product Spotlight January 2015

Occasionally, we find a product that seems at once magical and made just for us.  I call them FabuFinds.  It is even better when I can find them in sample form or get a great price, but these are the few items I would pay full price for if I could not find a promo code.  There were four products I consider FabuFinds in my January Empties that I have not discussed yet.  To spotlight them all, this will be a four product article.  Some articles may have as few as one product.  If the product was received for free, I will always let you know.

Carol’s Daughter sells body products?  I’ve actually seen that question a few times, because she is known for her hair products.  While I like some of her hair products, I find her body products are better.  The Ecstasy line in particular is the best I’ve tried.  I cannot think of a better word to describe the scent.   It is so pleasant and not at all overpowering.

Empties January 2015

One of my favorite threads on Beautytalk is the Empties.  Why?  More than any other thread, I get a feel for how someone really feels about a product.  Was it so amazing that they rushed out to buy replacements or so awful that they could not bring themselves to finish it?  While no product has a one size fits all place in life, I am reluctant to buy a new product I’ve never sampled when multiple people on the Empties thread give the product a thumbs down.  In the spirit of honest reviews on everything I try, I will review everything once a month as I’ve finished them.  You will see months where the same products make appearances.  If they’re amazing, I will continue buying them.

Each month, I will give you a mini review on each item.  I’ll tell you the items I love and will repurchase.  If I like or am indifferent to an item, I will not rush out to repurchase, but I would be willing to use or try it again.  Lastly, I will present the items that are not for me.  Generally, I will not use these any more in the future.  If they’re really awful to me, I always hope I can find someone else who may actually like them.  Thus, I will try to find someone to give duplicates to.  For the items that I really love, I will do a separate product spotlight on them at some point to discuss them in more detail.  My first product spotlight will immediately follow these mini reviews, because there are four amazing items in the attached picture I have not discussed yet.
