Hi Everyone - I am so happy that you all are reading. YAY
First up today I is another body product from Soft and Beautiful from their new line Soft & Beautiful Skin. This is the Body Oil Gel, which is much like the Vaseline body gel that I talked about some months ago. I would say that this product does leave my skin feeling moisturized and it makes my skin glow. For 5.5 oz you will pay $5.59 which isn't bad. This is a fragranced product with mineral oil listed as the first ingredient, but it also contains fruit oil, coconut and aloe leaf extracts. I asked some people to try out the product and they enjoyed the scent as well as the hydrated skin that they attributed to their use of the product. This is a paraben free body gel.
I tried the saran wrap method last night and it was such a disaster..lol I washed my hair with the Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle shampoo. I have reviewed neither the Aubrey Organics shampoo nor the conditioner but it they have a great scent like honey and roses, and I don't even like the smell of roses. Anyway here is the deal on the shampoo, it cleans my hair like any good shampoo does but it doesn't give me any "slip". When you think of slip think of the ability to glide your comb through your hair because it's so slippery and silky. This $10.00 all natural shampoo is ok but I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase it again. It promises to leave your hair manageable and soft but I think so many other products leave my hair much softer than that so I was not impressed with this shampoo in that regard. If you are buying it to clean your hair, then great because this is a tough shampoo that can clean your hair without making it feel stripped. I say it is a tough shampoo because it can cut through all of the oils that I may have on my hair from my pre poo yet it doesn’t make me feel like my hair has been stripped clean, which is a good thing. I will not throw this shampoo into the skip it files because it does clean my hair well but I just think it needs to work on the claim that it makes your hair manageable.
The conditioner , which I didn't use last night is a good product, designed for dry and brittle hair just like the shampoo. I feel that it makes my hair smell wonderful but I always feel the need to follow up with a moisturizer because it makes my hair feel a bit tough. If I don’t follow up with a moisturizer when it dries my hair is soft but during that period when it is wet I can not easily get a comb through my hair. This conditioner is also priced at $10.00.However the shampoo and conditioner ingredients are amazing , they include organic shea butter, honeysuckle oil, organic aloe etc. They are both all natural and paraben free. The shampoo does not contain a single sulfate.
The conditioner that I did use on my hair last night was the My Honey Child HoneyLemon conditioner. WHOA talk about a great product, this conditioner instantly softened my hair. After that Aubrey Organics shampoo I needed something to separate my strands and this was perfect. My hair was really soft and well scented after I used this product. I must order the 16 oz next time, now that I have finally used this conditioner. This conditioner is marketed as a detangling, moisturizing conditioner for very dry or damaged hair. It will now become one of my go to staple conditioners that I will use whenever I need to soften my hair.
Check out the ingredients: Coconut Butter, Coconut Milk, Raw Honey, Lemon Zest, Lemon Essential Oil And Purified Water- that’s it nothing else is included, isn’t that awesome! The 8oz bottle costs $10.00. I should also note that the customer service from this company is great I can order my products early in the week and they arrive the same week!
Once I finished washing my hair I put it in rollers and allowed it to air dry then I took out the roller, wrapped my hair and then I did something totally new. I tried the saran wrap method for the very first time. I have seen so many women rave about the saran wrap method which involves wrapping your hair around your head then covering it with saran wrap to reveal silky bouncy wrapped hair.My results Only the hair around my face was wrapped but the rest, especially the longer sections looked a mess. it was bouncy and shiny though so at least the method didn't disappoint in that area. I may try it again in the future just to see if I can find success with this process. I think the main problem is that I was sweating like a pig under the saran wrap. Here is the pic of my head wrapped:
I ended up throwing in rollers and calling it a night.

Why do I find myself singing the song Lovebug by the Jonas brothers? Oh dear....
If you have not listened to the Raphael Saadiq cd please give it a listen. He has presented some quality music that makes you think of old Mowtown hits.
Be safe everyone
