Viviscal | Review

I started taking Viviscal not because my hair was thinning out but because I wanted to promote existing hair growth. Did it worked while I was taking it and the answer is YES! I did see result when taking it as instructed. I bought a box with the thought of giving them a try since I've heard really good feedback and I'm glad I did. I was taking one in the morning and one at night, at the end of 3 weeks or so I started seeing that my hair had more volume and it was in some way thick as well. They are a small, round shaped which makes it easy to be swallowed. I suggest keeping them near your bed side to make it easy for you to remember taking them. The box comes with 60 pills which equals to one month supply when taking two a day. With visvical as well as any other pills for hair growth, consistency is extremely important because if you don't then you'll see no results. It is said that it takes 3 months of constancy to see improvement but i was able to see results even sooner than that. Remember everyone is different and everyone is going to react differently. I really recommend them to those of you that are having hair loss, hair thinning or even if you want to improve the condition of your hair because it all start from within.

Moroccan Oil | Review

If you have never tried the MoroccanOil line then maybe this review will help you decide which products of the line might be good for your hair type.  I have curly hair, colored treated(red), dry, frizz, and honestly damage due to the amount of color I need to do to maintain my red hair; however I tried not to blow dry or use any heat in my hair if is possible so I would say that it truly does help the condition of my hair. I've tried several product of this line and some I have loved and some I haven't.

The Moisture repair shampoo and conditioner is one my least favorite and that's because it simply doesn't moisture nor repair my hair as I thought it would. One thing that really drags people into the line is the smell because it does have a fragrance scent that lingers in your hair throughout the day. This formula is meant for those with weakened hair and in need to reconstruct the hair since its enriched with keratin. Its not a shampoo or conditioners to be used daily, I believe is only to be used after your hair has been through chemical and you are in serious needs of protein other than that the keratin will even make your hair look dryer and lifeless.

Restorative hair mask is truly one of my favorite but like the repair shampoo and conditioner ONLY after i've gotten my hair colored because coloring makes my hair look dry and completely a disaster. What I love to do is shampoo my hair, apply the mask and leave it in throughout the day while wearing a bun and then rinse it at night or my other favorite way of using it would be washing my hair at night and wear it throughout the night and in the morning rinsing it off. this mask is truly a holy grail to bring my hair moisture and protein that have been lost through coloring. You could also put it under a blow dryer to get the most out of the mask if you'll like.

Intense hydration mask is also one of my favorite because it really hydrate and bring back shine to the hair as well.  I used this mask the same way as the restorative mask but I like to add the oil at the ends of hair since those are usually the dryer parts. I tried using this mask at least two times a month.

Intense curl cream is for use curly hair that can't leave without leave in conditioners however I do find that there are times I use this product it tends to make my hair feel heavy throughout the day. it does give the moisture and shine that we curly want but this is definitely for longer curly hair girls. I want to try their hydration cream they have to be able to compare both of them.

Luminous hairspray in medium give you a flexible hold but apply it with caution, if you used a big too much it will leave a strong feel. I do like that is infuse it with argan oil because it does help tame the frizz so that always a plus in my book.

And of course mostly this line is known for is their famous MoroccanOil Treatment. There's so many ways to used this products that there's no reason why you wouldn't want to give it a try, they also have a formula designed for light color hair or fine hair. The treatment can be used as of course an over all oil to control frizz or give you hair some shine. It can be used as a preshampoo (which I love preshampoo) for those of curly that have a lot of problem getting sufficient oil throughout the hair. It could also be used in wet or dry hair.

They recently came out with their new collection smooth for unruly and frizz which i really want to try because my frizz is sometimes out of control since the weather in south Florida is just way toooo crazy!!

Laura Mercier| Foundation Primer Oil-Free

So I decided to purchase this primer and give it a try because I was in the market for a new primer since believe it or not benefit Porefessional is just not giving me the finish I'm looking for anymore, I'll be going more in depth about it in another post.(stay tune). Anyways, this primer is definitely not the only that you want to try if you're on the  oily side as I am  because let me tell you that you're going to end up looking like a grease ball by midday!! Even though its meant for those girl that have oily skin, and suppose to give you a matte finish it totally does the opposite. At first I though that it might had be something else that I was using in conjunction but  I wasn't using anything else that I normally wouldn't use, so the primer had to be it.. I gave it a try more for a few more days and indeed the primer was giving me a grease ball look, I'm referring to it as grease ball because it wasn't a normal dewy skin look. My makeup was melting of my skin! It feel lightweight and feel super nice when you're applying it but I just simply didn't like the look a few hours later. I'm the kind of person that I must apply a primer because I do believe that it protects my skin. So when it come to this product I dont recommended to those of you have oily skin and looking for a matte finish look or simply want to try a new primer  because there's so many other that are soooo much better.

OPI Neon Collection 2014

OPI Neon Collection 2014

Well here we go again!! Is all about the neon wherever you go. This year i have to say I'm extremely impressed with the OPI Neon Collection, I litelary love every single one of them.
They are bright, they are neon, and all stunning colors. This collection has 6 different shades plus a "special"white which is very similar to alphine snow and a top coat. I've only worn 2 of the shades as of now but i will be using the other shades as well with in the following weeks. I do have to say a negative about it that of course we all know can happen with neons, having to use a white base to make that neon color pop is a pain in the b*** because not only are you applying so many layers of lacquer but the chipping becomes an enemy. The first time i use the polish i did use the white shade that it comes and the color looked beautiful but i did feel that it was just way too much layers of polish. so for the rest i didn't use the white instead i used the acrylic base coat from OPI and it worked amazing because at least i didn't feel as i was applying so much polish and it actually lasted longer then the first time. If you guys haven't gotten your hands in this collection, stop reading this and go to your local store that carries OPI and get them ALL!!
