Get your protein on & Random Items

Although you are only looking at the conditioner bottle, this post is really about both the shampoo and conditioner. It just so happens that I chucked the shampoo bottle before taking a picture. This GPB shampoo and conditioner have received rave reviews from some people so I wanted to try it out. It had been sitting in a basket for months untouched, until I finally decided to rip myself away from my staples and give it a try.
Since this is an Aubrey Organics product, you may already know that the products are free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals and other bad ingredients. This particular product is a protein conditioner and shampoo, designed to strengthen your hair while giving you great shine. It has rosemary in it so it has more of a peppermint scent-- thought I should mention that in case that rocks your boat.
So I used the shampoo and my hair felt clean but not silky, like I would not attempt to run my comb through my hair after using that shampoo. HOWEVER if you notice, there is a special word on the bottle of the conditioner, it says it is a "BALANCING" conditioner. Indeed, it balanced out the feeling that I got from the shampoo and turned my hair into pieces of silk. As soon as I applied that conditioner to my hair I was running my fingers all through my tresses. When my hair finally air dried, it was shiny and it felt like my hair was made of titanium. I mean I was combing through my new growth like I was two weeks post :-). I will certainly buy this again and again. Just about all of the Aubrey shampoos and conditioners cost around $10 but I think this one was a little more.
Below you will see this product, which has nothing to do with beauty but I feel the need to talk about it. This Glade room fragrance smells great but only when your nose is practically pressed up against the jar. Gee Whiz can you get it together Glade, I am so not happy with this product since it didn't leave my room with its delicious scent.

Yummy Yum Yum

I just tried the Bold Apple tic tacs last week. DELICIOUS. They are so tasty that I went back to Duane Reade this week and just picked up a tray of it, 12 in total ( I had already taken a few out of the case by the time I had taken this pic).
The Fat Smash Diet is wonderful by the way!!!!

Now who in the world goes and buys a tray of tic tacs from the drug store? LOL You are funny.

I have that conditioner and several of the shampoos. I like the line, but after a while I stopped seeing the results that I liked so I haven't used it in a while.

The renuzit air freshners that cost like $1 do a good job of scenting the whole room. I have one in my office at work and you can smell the goodness as you walk by the door and my office is huge (big enough for 3 big ole desks and room to dance in the floor still- not that I do that).

What part of the fat smash are you on now?

Phyllis said...

Lauren said...

It's me again diva... lol I also have the GPB condish but I haven't used it in a long time. Maybe I'll start using again as a pre-protein b4 relaxer or wash. I love AO products, my fav is the island naturals one, I still use it from time to time. Good job on the protein!! Although I always wondered why alot of ppl said on blogs they considered this a "heavy protein treatment??" However I didnt find this to be heavy (for my hair) at all, the emgergeny & sebastians is wayyy more heavy duty. I never tried the GPB shampoo, i'm using some other natural shampoo for now. Either way, can't go wrong w/ Aubrey Organics, its kiddy friendly all the way.

DE yes I know you like this
Lauren I think tried the island one but gpb and honeysucks those are my favs from that company. I have never tried anything from sebastians. I think I found new products that I love...yay can't wait to post on them.
