MoMi Beauty Styling Jelly Review

Hello, hello!

MoMi Beauty Styling Jelly

Today I’m reviewing the Styling Jelly from MoMi Beauty that came in my March Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

This innovative jelly stays flexible and maintains movement, allowing easy styling and a no-frizz finish. Every hair type can achieve different textures using the jelly, which blends organic hydrating olive oil and clarifying apple cider vinegar with floral and gem-essences for inner and outer balance. 

  • Pump a small amount into palms
  • Evenly apply to damp or air-dried hair
  • Style as desired
  • To add volume and body to fine hair, apply to lengths from root to ends
  • For medium hold: scrunch into wet hair and diffuse with a blow dryer
  • For some extra hold to style: pump a small amount into palms and style as needed
  • To tame fly-aways: pump a small amount into palms and very lightly apply to smooth strands

MoMi Beauty Styling Jelly

I’ve been using this to add volume and tame frizz in my wavy hair. It feels hydrating yet lightweight. Mega waves! It kind of feels like a cross between a hair gel and a facial serum texture-wise. And the scent is very minimal (almost non-existent) to my nose! I really like it a lot!

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Deionized Water, Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract, Sorbitol, Glycerin, Calendula Extract, Pro-Vitamin B5, Organic Guar Gum (Natural Plant Based), Organic Sweet Orange Oil, Organic Lemongrass Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (Raw unfiltered), Organic Green Tea, Organic Sage Herb, Organic Bilberry Leaf, Xanthan Gum (Natural Gum), Lotus Wei blend of organic essential oils of Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender), Anthemis nobilis (Roman chamomile), Rosa damascena (Rose absolute), Citrus aurantium (Neroli absolute), Nelumbo Nucifera (Lotus) flower essence, gem essence of Rose Quartz, Leucidal (Radish root ferment).

Set your second-day-and-beyond hair up for success. This revolutionary cream rinse dramatically extends that freshly conditioned feel so you can wash your hair less often.

Maui Moisture Colour Protection + Sea Minerals Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of a shampoo and conditioner set from Maui Moisture that has been in my stash for a little while –  Colour Protection + Sea Minerals. I’ve been using it for around 6 weeks now, so I think it’s finally time for a review! [info in italics taken from the Maui Moisture website]

MauiMoisture SeaMinerals

Inspired by the ocean, dive deep into hydration with our Maui Moisture Colour Protection + Sea Minerals Shampoo [and Conditioner]. Infused with sea minerals, algae, and sea kelp, this blend, free from silicones, parabens, SLS, gluten, and vegan friendly, is sure to help hair colour stay as vibrant as your inner mermaid with a healthy-looking glow and moisturized strands.

MauiMoisture SeaMinerals

This shampoo and conditioner duo is great for my wavy, colour-treated hair. My colour seems to fade less quickly with using them – always a good thing. The shampoo cleans without stripping, and lathers really well for a sulfate-free formula. The conditioner does a great job to hydrate my hair without making it feel waxy or heavy. The scent is really nice, I can’t quite figure out what it smells like, but I like it – it is fresh smelling (and thankfully not over-scented).

Monthly Empties Part 1- March 2019

Hello, hello!

I’ve really been trying to use things up in my stash and this month I made really good progress at finishing up quite a few products – some full sized and some sample sized. I’ll link to any reviews, and let you know if I have plan to repurchase, or not. I decided to split my empties into two parts. Part one is my bath and haircare empties.

Let’s take a look:

March 2019 Empties 1

Buck Naked Soap Company Himalayan Salt Soak – I loved this one so much, and will be buying it again the next time I’m doing a well.ca haul. This was particularly great for a post yoga soak! Original review is here.

Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave In Conditioner – This came in a Petit Vour box, and I really liked it a lot, it made my hair so soft and shiny! I have no plans to purchase right now as I’m still working my way through my haircare stash, but I think it is wishlist  worthy. Original review is here.

March 2019 Empties 2

Attitude Super Leaves Volume & Shine Conditioner – I really like this conditioner, the shampoo has a couple of uses left in it, but will probably end up in my April empties. I won’t be repurchasing right away as I just started using the ones from Oneka not too long ago, but I probably would repurchase in the future. Original review is here.

Kariderm Restorative Hair Mask – (This was a PR sample for review) I loved this mask, it worked so well for my hair and scalp. And I just found a place in my neighbourhood that stocks it, so I plan to buy myself this hair mask soon. Original review is here.

March 2019 Empties (Part 1)

I’ll have my March Empties Part Two (Skincare and Makeup) next week.

Did you finish up very much this month?

Lowen’s Natural Skincare Reviews Part 2 – Shampoo is Betta + Rub It In Why Don’t Ya!

Lowen's Natural Skincare Shampoo is Betta and Rub It In Why Don't Ya!

Hello, hello!

Lowen's Natural Skincare

Today I’m continuing with my reviews of some of the products that came in my awesome PR package from Canadian company Lowen’s Natural Skincare (Part 1 and company info is here). Today’s reviews are of Shampoo is Betta (vegan hydrating shampoo) and Rub It In Why Don’t Ya! (face, hand & body lotion).  [info in italics taken from the Lowen’s Natural Skincare website]

Onto the shampoo:

Lowen's Natural Skincare Shampoo is Betta

Shampoo is Betta! Gentle Vegan Hydrating Shampoo is a natural, vegan sulfate-free coconut based cleanser that is extremely gently yet incredibly effective.  It will effectively clean your hair and replenish it with hydrating unrefined, cold pressed locally sourced hemp seed oil. For extra conditioning we’ve added provitamin B5 (AKA Panthenol) as well as oat oil, with the latter providing exceptional activity in preventing itchiness and dryness (dandruff).

This shampoo is incredibly thick and lathers well despite being a sulfate free formula. It cleans my colour-treated hair well, and doesn’t strip the colour as it is super gentle and non-drying.

Lowen's Natural Skincare Shampoo is Betta

Ingredients: Coco-Betaine (Coconut based cleanser) & Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (Coconut based cleanser), Aqua, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Oleosomes, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (Coconut based cleanser), Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Panthenol, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil.

The shampoo also smells amazing without being over-scented – with rosemary and peppermint being the main scents that my nose can identify. It rinses out nicely and doesn’t leave a filmy residue, leaving my hair clean, soft and hydrated.

Onto Rub It In Why Don’t Ya! the face, hand and body lotion with the best name ever!

Lowen's Natural Skincare Rub It In Why Don't Ya!

I formulated Rub it in Why Don’t Ya (RIIWDY) formulated specifically for our daughter Lowen back when she was barely walking.  It is safe, effective and long lasting and particularly great for those with sensitive skin. Our natural is paraben free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, contains no added fragrances and we only use minimal preservation.  Try it. We’re confident you’ll love it!

Another sensitive skin dream product! It really is long lasting – I’ve been using this more as a body lotion than as a face lotion after a bath or shower and it keeps my skin hydrated all day!

Lowen's Natural Skincare Rub It In Why Don't Ya!

Ingredients: Beeswax (Calgary, AB), Fair Trade Certified Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Distilled Water, Cetyl Alcohol,  Euxyl 9010 (preservative),  Rosemary Oil, Certified Organic Non-GMO Cold Pressed Canola Oil (High River, AB), Lecithin (Non-GMO source) , Cold Pressed Non-GMO Camelina Seed Oil (Saskatoon, SK), Polysorbate 80 (Vacuum Distilled – 1,4 dioxane free), Vegetable Glycerin, Vegetable Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Xanthan Gum

This lotion has a minimal ingredient list with less than 20 easily identifiable ingredients and no added fragrance, so it smells like what it is made of – very mild.

Lowen's Natural Skincare Shampoo is Betta and Rub It In Why Don't Ya!

I love both the shampoo and the face, hand and body lotion!

Attitude Super Leaves Volume & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Attitude Super Leaves Volume & Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing another shampoo and conditioner duo from Attitude, this time I’ve been testing out the Volume & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve previously reviewed several from their haircare range – Nourishing & Strengthening, and  Color Protection. [info in italics taken from the Attitude website]

Attitude Super Leaves Volume & Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

Did you know soya is known to increase hair and skin thickness? Since hair is mostly composed of protein, soya can only help with its high concentration of proteins. Featuring cranberry extract, ATTITUDE’s Super leaves™ Volume & Shine Shampoo [and Conditioner] helps volumize hair, creating thick and shiny locks. You will love its aroma that reminds us of orange and cardamom. EWG Verified™, hypoallergenic and dermatologically-tested, our Volume & Shine Shampoo [and Conditioner] includes moringa seed extract, known for its antipollution properties. […] For beautiful hair, from root to end!

These are targeted for flat and fine hair – and as you know my hair is thick and wavy. So why did I buy them? Hat weather. Because it is full on winter weather here in Montreal, all of the hat wearing has turned my usually voluminous hair into an uncharacteristically  flat and dull mess.

The Shampoo lathers really well for a sulfate-free formula, and rinses well with no leftover residue feeling, while the Conditioner moisturizes my hair without making it feel weighed down. I was surprised that the conditioner worked so well for my hair since it is geared for fine hair, and most are too light for my hair type. I’ve been using both for several weeks now and my hair is a lot happier (more volume, and loads of shine), and less prone to flattening out – unless I put on a hat too soon after drying my hair. I’m sure that if I used this set in the summer time, my hair would be gigantic!

Attitude Super Leaves Volume & Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

As with the other Shampoo & Conditioner duos in the line, the scent is pleasant but not over-powering (YAY! as you all know I do not enjoy highly scented haircare products). It is supposed to smell like orange and cardamom. It isn’t a straightforward citrus scent, but it isn’t super spicy. I’m not sure how to explain it, but I think this one might be my favourite scent out of all the ones that I’ve tried thus far!

Have you tried anything from Attitude?

Evolvh Ultimate Styling Lotion Review

Evolvh Ultimate Styling Lotion

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Ultimate Styling Lotion from Evolvh that came in my November Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Evolvh Ultimate Styling Lotion

This 5-in-1 botanical formula truly does everything: creates volume, holds style, de-frizzes, adds shine, or defines curls into smooth ringlets. Its an all-in-one amazingly lightweight lotion.

  • Offers medium level of hold
  • De-frizzes and conditions
  • Can be used on wet or dry hair
  • Manages curls (for soft, smooth and bouncy ringlets)

Evolvh Ultimate Styling Lotion

When styling for fullness and volume, apply from the roots out and blow dry hair off the scalp. For curly hair, apply sparingly from roots to mid-length and add slightly more product from mid-length to ends for beautiful, smooth ringlets. For air dried hair, let it sink in for a minute before styling as usual. Bonus: it can also be applied to dry hair to refresh lifeless locks.

Evolvh Ultimate Styling Lotion

I really liked the Evolvh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner samples that came in my October Petit Vour box, so I was happy to see a styling lotion in this month’s box.

The Ultimate Styling Lotion was made for my hair! It helps tame frizz and doesn’t make it feel weighed down, or crunchy. I can use it when I want my hair to be wavy, and when I want it to be straight-ish. I like that it can be used for added volume, because in the winter time, with all of the hat wearing, my hair tends to lose it natural volume.

Have you tried this one? What is your fave styling product?

It detangles and adds shine, and it’s also safe for chemically treated or colored hair. Actives include wild pansy, sweet clover, and apricot extracts, all of which contain nourishing antioxidants, plus amino and fatty acids which restore hair from the inside our and provide anti-aging benefits. 

The conditioner is super hydrating without being heavy. It works well to tame and reduce frizz.

St. Tropica Organic Coconut Hot Oil Hair Mask Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Organic Coconut Hot Oil Hair Mask  from St. Tropica that came in my August Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from Petit Vour]

St. Tropica Hot Oil Hair Mask

WHAT IT IS: A hot oil hair mask for stronger, thicker, lustrous hair!

WHAT IT DOES: Instantly repairs hair damage from the inside-out. Helps stimulate hair growth. Revitalizes & strengthens dry or damaged hair. Locks-in moisture to help eliminate split ends and frizzy hair.

I know that I just reviewed another hair mask earlier this week, but what can I say, I really do love hair masks! And my thick, wavy, frizz-prone hair needs help to keep it under control!

St. Tropica Hot Oil Hair Mask

This hair mask is to be heated before applying – heating in a microwave is recommended. Since I haven’t owned a microwave in many, many years, I just put the package in a bowl of hot water before applying to the mid-length and ends of my hair. The Organic Coconut Hot Oil Mask is a little messy to apply, as once the treatment is heated, it becomes super liquidy.

It does smell like coconut oil, but the other ingredients keep it from being overpowering scent-wise. [FYI – if you haven’t been reading my blog very long – I really do not like the scent of coconut. ]

Once applied, I left it on my hair for roughly 30 minutes before washing it out. The packaging recommends that you shampoo your hair TWICE with a clarifying shampoo, sadly I did not have any clarifying shampoo left in my stash, so I just washed my hair twice with a regular shampoo and rinsed it for a very long time. And then I rinsed it some more because I could feel some residue in my hair.

Once I finally got the Hot Oil Hair Mask fully rinsed out, I combed out my hair and let it air dry without any product. My hair was less frizzy, so incredibly soft, and super shiny! I do like how my hair reacted to this mask, but I will hold off on using it again until I pick up some clarifying shampoo – it really is necessary!

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Biotin, Organic Horsetail, Organic Amla, Organic Hibiscus, Organic Green Tea, Organic Coconut Butter, Organic Coconut Fruit Extract
