Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium $118.00

Voted 2015 Best New Female Fragrance by the Fragrance Foundation and Allure Best of Beauty award winner. With a glam rock aesthetic, this addictive gourmand floral entices with notes of black coffee for a shot of adrenaline, white florals to instantly seduce, and vanilla for sweetness and sensuality. Playing on the incongruity between the bitterness of the coffee bean accord, an ingredient never used before in such a high quantity in a feminine fragrance and radiant white flowers, BLACK OPIUM gives a sensation of light-headedness, bordering on ecstasy.First there is the wake-up call. The coffee bean note hits you hard, jolting the senses. Next, it becomes softer and more feminine with the white flowers of jasmine sambac and absolu of fleur d’oranger to finish incredibly addictive and emboldened by the ambrosial appeal of vanilla and the woody notes of cedar and patchouli, giving a roundness, depth, and mysterious elegance. Audacious? Perhaps. Addictive, electrifying? Definitely. (yslbeautyus.com)

Free your Hair with Ever Pure!

Posted on: January 24, 2017

  

Hi Love!

Recently, I’ve been receiving so many compliments on my hair. I’ve been meaning to do an updated hair post– so, here it is. I’ve started using this new hair care system by Loreal: Ever Pure. In just a few washes I’ve noticed the amazing effects it’s had on my hair.

For many years, I’ve tried many different hair products from high end to drugstore brands you name it. My hair has been thru the it all over the years. Plus, I’ve colored my hair just about every color (except for purple, blue, pink) and my hair has seen it’s fair share of products. So, I guess it’s safe to say my hairs been fried, dyed, dull and damaged through the years. In the last couple of years, I’ve taken better care of my hair (using less heat tools, no abrasive color treatments etc….) and I’ve noticed a huge difference.  I’ve changed up my hair products too. For the most part, I’ve used salon suggested, high end hair products up. It’s only in the last 3 years or so I’ve changed things up. Ever since I discovered Loreal’s hair care products my hair has gone thru a tremendous changes and in the most amazing ways possible. Their newest hair care line is absolutely amazing and heres why.

The shampoo + conditioner moisturize your hair and leave it smelling fresh and invigorating. It’s formula combines rosemary and floral botanicals which smells incredible. Another reason that makes Loreal’s Ever Pure products so great: they’re sulfate-free, paraben-free, free of harsh salts, vegan and dye free. Both products have a rich and creamy consistency that isn’t heavy but rather it lathers on smoothly throughout your hair. This system specifically is great for color treated hair (which is what I have) and it keeps color pure for up to 4 weeks. The last time I colored my hair was back in November and up until now my color is still looking vibrant and fresh as if it was done yesterday. My hair has never looked better. It feels and looks more hydrated, soft, silky, smooth and looks oh so fabulous as you can see.

The 10 in 1 elixir is another amazing product from Loreal. All three products have done wonders for my hair. The elixir specifically helps restore hairs vitality in as little as 1 week. After using the elixir, I noticed a huge difference in my hair almost immediately. My hair has stayed healthy, reflecting my radiant hair color even though my hair was colored months ago. These are all the things its’ done for my hair and what it’s proven do to for hair in general:

1. Nourish
2. Hydrate
3. Soothe
4. Repair
5. Density
6. Smooth
7. Texture
8. Strength
9. Softness
10. Shine

Apply on to towel-dried hair and scalp in sections. Gently work into hair to evenly distribute. Do not rinse. Style as usual. My hair looks and feels healthy and fresh. I can wash my hair knowing my hair will look great after each wash. We all want to have that “after salon visit” hair ( gorgeous salon blown out hair) everyday especially after a full nights rest. But rest assure, after using Loreal’s Ever Pure products your hair will look and feel incredible. Let’s be honest, I don’t know about you, when my hair looks that good it not only makes me feel amazing but gives me an added boost in my confidence too. No matter if your hair is dry, color treated, curly, you’ll love these products just as much as I do and you’ll see what it can do you. So #freeyourhair from all your hair worries and try these life-changing products. Get the gorgeous hair you’ve always wanted that will not only look amazing but you’ll feel amazing too!! Trust me, you’ll LOVE them –you’ll thank me later.
