Enjoy Professional Hair Care Review and Giveaway- Ended

Thanks to the Enjoy team we were able to test out and review a line of their products.

Enjoy Professional Hair Care

Sulfate-Free Rejuvenating Volumizing Shampoo

Rejuvenating Conditioner

Volumizing Mousseenjoy Hair Care

The very first thing I noticed when I opened the box my Enjoy Hair care product’s came is was it stated Sulfate-Free. From that moment I could not wait to try it, because the one thing I notice with most shampoo’s I’ve used has sulfate and seems to dry my hair out and feels rough after I blow dry it. The second thing I noticed was the smell, it reminded me of sweet eucalyptus. It was a bit strong when put it in your hair after rinsing it out the smell faded and ended up being a light smell that I fell in love with.

My hair is pretty thin, and very flat. So I was happy their line included a product just for my hair. As you can see from the picture there is no volume or bounce to my hair. This is after a normal wash.before1

When I washed it with the Enjoy products I noticed the shampoo and conditioner were very thick, which I loved because I could tell it was not a watered down product. So your getting what you pay for. The conditioner has menthol in it and when you apply it you feel it working. It kept my hair hydrated and gave it a very clean feeling. After I washed it I added the Volumizing Mousse, one thing is for sure follow directions when it says a small amount it means a small amount. I used it as I would use any mousse, needless to say I had to rewash my hair, because the product worked a little more than I wanted to give it credit for.

Now the second time I used a dime sized amount and it was plenty for me.891718_10200351332203262_402326512_oI wish the light was not there because you would notice a shine, and it does not look as limp.  My hair has never looked and felt healthier.

Enjoy Professions DO NOT TEST ON ANIMALS which was another plus for me. It’s so hard to find good product that do not test on animals.

Enjoy Professionals is carried in salons only so check for a location near you.

KQC Swirl Professional Ceramic Iron- Review

My hair lays flat and does nothing. I’ve use volumizing shampoos, conditioners, and all different hair products. Now I do own a curling iron, but waiting for it to warm up and doing my hair takes about 45 mins. I’m the type of person who wants to be ready and walking out the door in 30 mins or less not spending all that time on my hairs. When I first saw the retail value I wanted to have a heart attack, never have I imagined paying that much for a curling iron……after using it again and again I could never imagine using anything else.

Recently I was given the opportunity from Flat Iron Experts in Vancouver to test a new curler the KQC Professional Ceramic Iron ($104.00), KQC Thermal Shine Spray ($13.99) and Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo ($17.99).

curlerI was highly impressed with this iron for many reasons, may favorite it took less than a minute to heat up. Besides heating up fast you can set the temp anywhere from 100 to 200 degrees. Plus being ceramic it only takes a few minutes to cool down. After using for a week I still have no split ends. The top swivels so as your taking it out of your hair, it keeps the curl from loosing and bounce. It took about 15 mins. to do my hair so it cut down a lot of time. I will never own another brand curling iron ever, it had me hooked after the first use.

sprayI was a little reluctant to use the KQC Thermal Shine. Every time I’ve used something similar to this my hair comes out looking and feeling greasy. Instead I’m glad I gave it a try. Not only did my hair not come out looking or feeling greasy but gave it an extra clean, and a high shine look. Let’s just say I’ve already bought a few bottles, I would be lost if I could never find this product.

shampooBefore I curled my hair I had to try the Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo. I can’t really describe how it smelled, but reminds me of something from a salon. The good thing about this product was after I used it, I did not need conditioner, and was able to get my brush through my hair without snagging any tangles. One less product I can now use.

Before I did anything to my hairbefore1

And AfterafterAfter I was finished I ran a brush through my hair, and the curl stayed. ++A for KQC

Madison At Main Rug Review and Giveaway- Ended

I received a rug from Madison at Main for review. For my design I chose Early Spring Buds from the Jellybean collection. jellybean

Their rugs can be used as indoor/outdoor rugs and can be used just about anywhere. They have a very light non-slip grip on the back. I placed mine in front of my kitchen sink and was amazed by how thick and soft it was (can’t say it makes doing dishes any funner). With it being so soft it would make a great bath rug, or one to place by your door, or on your patio.

Madison at Main carries a variety of different designs and patterns and even monograms.treemonogram

Salonpas Pain Patches-Review and Giveaway- Ended

Between work and school I sit at my desk for a good 9 to 12 hours a day. Lower back pain is nothing new so most nights I sit in a warm bath to relieve all the tension that has built up for the day, and yet my back still aches when I go to bed. When I was offered a review for Salonpas I have to admit I was a little thrilled. They sent me three different types.

The SalonPas Pain Relief contains 3% Menthol and 10% Methyl Salicylate and comes in a pack of 5. They are light and flexible and I found these to work great when my hand cramps due to breaking all of my metacarpals at work a few years ago. The patch gets pretty cold and feels relaxing. The smell is not so bad from the menthol, wish I would have thought about using one of these when I was sick and could not breathe I’m sure it would have helped.photo(2)

Salonpas also makes patched for Arthritis Pain Patch that contains the same ingredients just markets them different. I could not find any difference to the pain relief patches.

My favorite one was the Salonpas Pain Relieving Gel-Patch HOT. When I first put one on I just about jumped out of my seat due to the gel being so cold. After a few minutes it started heating up and I could not feel any aches or pains and I was able to work longer without the need to keep getting up. They are air activated so if you put anything heavy on over them they will not heat up as much. They contain 1.25% methanol so the smell was a bit stronger, but pro’s outweighed the con’s for me.
