Crüe Cosmetics Fast Growth Treatment Bundle – Neptüne Hydrating Oil Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m reviewing the part of the Fast Growth Treatment Bundle from Quebec based company, Crüe Cosmetics. I’ve been following this brand on Instagram for awhile and decided to purchase the Fast Growth Treatment Bundle out after reading a few of their blog posts about hair care. [info in italics taken from the Crüe Cosmetics website]

Crüe Cosmetics is a Montreal based company that specializes in the creation of products that are all natural, organic and vegan. The process involves the infusion of herbs and essential oils in order to produce highly efficient holistic products that are safe to use on hair and skin. We are passionate about delivering natural alternatives to hair and skin care and our products are all crafted and packaged by hand to maximize quality. We do not test on animals nor do we use any animal byproducts because we believe that within nature lies the cure to any ailment and we strive to use these solutions to help our customers. At Crüe Cosmetics, your beauty is in the hands of nature.

The Fast Growth Bundle is comprised of L’Ör Growth Serum and Neptüne Hydrating Oil. The serum is used on the scalp, and the oil is used on the hair for optimum healthy hair growth. I’ve been using them both for about two months now, so I feel ready to review them. Let’s take a look at the hydrating oil. I’ve already reviewed the Growth Serum here.

Neptüne Hydrating Oil

Neptüne Hydrating oil is a very versatile grape seed oil based product meant to be used on your hair, face and body. Grape seed oil contains more linoleic acid than most carrier oils and is full of emollients and nutrients which make it ideal for moisturizing and conditioning dry hair, reducing dandruff and dermatitis, and aid in the nurturing and growth of healthy skin cells. Burdock Root and Nettle leaf are well known for their ability to cure skin and hair issues such as dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, dandruff and dermatitis. We’ve added the anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and anti-bacterial benefits of Lavender, Geranium, Black Pepper, Patchouli and Peppermint to further assist in strengthening of follicles, stimulating healthy hair growth and to treat wrinkles, unclog pores, remove blemishes and treat acne. With its many uses and benefits, Neptüne Hydrating oil is bound to become a staple in the care routine of anyone desiring beautiful hair and skin.

This oil can used used on hair, face and body. I’ve mainly used it on my hair and I have to say that I’m so in love with this one – it makes my hair so incredibly soft and shiny. The scent is beautiful, very earthy / herbal which I absolutely love! If the ends of my hair feel a little dry on my “Next Day Hair”, I just apply a little extra to the ends. It also works great to control frizz.

Just this week I decided to try a little bit of the Hydrating Oil on an irritated patch of skin in my underarm (which is either eczema, or reaction caused by baking soda in one of my deodorants) and the redness is nearly gone. Nothing I’ve tried has worked so quickly to reduce irritation! Powerful stuff.

Needless to say, I love the Neptüne Hydrating Oil!

I’ve been using them both for about two months now, so I feel ready to review them. Let’s take a look at the scalp serum:

L’Ör Growth Serum

L’Ör Growth Serum is a castor oil based serum infused with a special blend of herbs and organic essential oils such as: Ginger, Garlic, Black Pepper, Vetiver and Onion. These oils penetrate deep within the scalp to stimulate hair growth and maintain healthy hair and scalp. We also added 100% pure Rose essential oil and Sandalwood to assist in cooling the scalp and help treat and prevent dandruff. Castor oil has been used for centuries to improve hair growth due to its high ricinoleic acid content which balances the scalp’s pH level and increases circulation to the scalp. This unique combination of natural organic ingredients will improve the overall quality of your hair while accelerating hair growth.

I use the scalp serum once a week, sometimes once every week and a half. My scalp is very sensitive, and I find that it has been so much less easily irritated since I started using it. I also have a bunch of new hair growth – baby hairs. My hair tends to grow fairly quickly normally, but these days it seems like it is growing even faster! It does smell more like garlic and onions to my nose than vetiver, rose or sandalwood – but rinsing with apple cider vinegar after washing keeps the scent from sticking around, and gives my hair a crazy amount of shine!

I’ll be reviewing the Neptüne Hydrating Oil in a separate post this week!

Jamella, the owner of Crüe Cosmetics, calls each and every one of her customers and offers a hair consultation, and asks for feedback on the products. A very personal touch, one that I really appreciated!

Once I use up my current stash of hair masks, I’d like to try the Angëlia Hair Mask.

Shea Moisture Silicone Free Miracle Styler Leave-In Treatment Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

I’ve been mega busy with work deadlines, sorry for the delay in reviews – today I have a review of the Shea Moisture Silicone Free Miracle Styler Leave-In Treatment. I purchased it recently because I got the Dyson Super Sonic Hair Dryer for my birthday (which I will review soon) and needed a heat protectant product. [info in italics taken from the Shea Moisture website]

Miracles do happen! SheaMoisture Sugarcane Extract & Meadowfoam Seed Silicone Free Miracle Styler Leave-in Treatment does it all; detangles, nourishes dry hair, softens, cuts drying time, adds shine, smoothes and is enhanced with an anti frizz formula, adds silkiness, and helps to protect against thermal and environmental damage. Made with a blend of Sugarcane, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Marshmallow Root, and nourishing botanicals, this high-slip formula is great for tangle-free, manageability and hair health. Leaves hair smooth, soft and lustrous.

This is a really great multi-purpose hair product. It makes my hair so soft, and really does help control frizz. It also works great for refreshing “next day hair”. This treatment can be used for both straight and wavy / curly styles. It doesn’t weigh my hair down or make it feel greasy or crunchy – just soft and smooth.

My only complaint is that I really dislike its scent – I can’t pinpoint exactly what it smells like, but it reminds me of a cheap men’s cologne. Thankfully the scent disappears after awhile.

Have you tried this one? Do you have a fave heat protectant product?

Attitude Super Leaves Shampoo Clarifying Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a review of the Attitude Super Leaves Shampoo Clarifying Lemon Leaves and White Tea [info in italics taken from the Attitude website]

Did you know white tea leaf extract is known to delay the aging process thanks to its high antioxidant concentration? It also helps to protect your hair from daily oxidation. Harness the power of antioxidant-rich white tea leaf extract with ATTITUDE’s Super leaves™ Clarifying Shampoo. Plus, thanks to its purifying lemon leaf extract, you can give your hair a deep clean to restore its shine, even more if you are using styling products. Also, you will love its aroma that reminds us of Earl Grey tea and fresh cucumber. EWG Verified™, hypoallergenic and dermatologically-tested, our Clarifying Shampoo includes moringa seed extract, known for its antipollution properties. 

This is a great sulfate free clarifying shampoo – it lathers super well, and leaves my hair feeling super clean and shiny. I don’t find that it dries my hair out like some clarifying shampoos. The scent is very mild – I don’t smell any cucumber though, but it does smell like a lemony tea to my nose.

Also – I love that this brand is made in Canada!

Have you tried this clarifying shampoo? Do you use a clarifying shampoo?

Cumulative Empties Aug to Dec 2020 – Hair, Body and Makeup

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Earlier this week I shared my cumulative skincare empties, and today I have my haircare, body care an makeup empties (not decluttered makeup, that was a separate post). I didn’t finish up nearly as much in these categories as I did with my skincare stash, but I still feel like I’m making progress in using up products. I will link to my original reviews and let you know if it is something I would purchase / re-purchase or not (by purchase I mean eventually, as my goal is to only buy products when necessary).

Hair and Body Care:

NatureLab Tokyo Perfect Repair Shampoo – This was a part of a larger PR package from the brand. The matching conditioner has a few uses left in it, so I’m sure it will be in my next round of empties. I really love the Perfect Repair Shampoo – it makes my hair so soft and healthy feeling. I would purchase a full size of this if I can get it here, or order online from a Canadian website.

MoMi Beauty Styling Jelly – This was from my Petit Vour subscription. I liked this a lot, it worked well for my wavy, frizz prone hair. I would love to get a full size of this eventually – once I use up my current stash of styling products.

Sothys Pro-Youth Body Serum – This was a PR product. This is more like a rich body butter than a serum. Amazing for dry skin, and left my skin silky smooth. It is on the pricy side though, and I have a few body lotions / body butters to use up in my stash.

Makeup Empties:


Essence Cosmetics Lips Go Wow Plumping Lip Gloss – I LOVE this lip plumping gloss. It doesn’t sting or burn like a lot of lip plumpers. I plan on getting another one if they still have them at Shoppers / Pharmaprix.

Smashbox SuperFan Mascara – This was a free deluxe sample with purchase. Its a nice mascara, but didn’t hold a curl well for me, so I would not purchase a full size. I think that it is a great mascara if you don’t have stick straight lashes like I do!

So there you have it, the final empties for 2020. I’ve already finished up a few things this month, so I might return to a monthly empties format as long as I finish up a minimum of five products each month.

I’ll be back next week with some Bath and Body product reviews.

Kristin Ess Hair Weightless Shine Air Dry Creme Review

Hello hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m reviewing the Kristin Ess Hair Weightless Shine Air Dry Creme. I bought it a few weeks ago and have been using it since [info in italics taken from well.ca website].

I’ve always dreamed of that wash-and-go life… now it’s just reality. If you only have time for one product, let this be the one. It smooths, it separates, it adds shine, it gives texture, what more could you want!? It can be used on any hair texture; straight, curly, thick, fine or frizzy, to achieve an effortless, polished look.
Contains Zip-Up Technology:
Kristin Ess’ proprietary strengthening complex designed to help “zip-up” split ends while targeting weak areas of the hair, smoothing the appearance of damaged cuticles and helping to protect hair from environmental stressors and color fade.

Benefits:

  • for all hair types
  • frizz calming
  • shine restoring
  • softening + smoothing
  • time saving
  • cruelty free

I try not to heat style my hair very often, so anything that works well with air drying is great for me. I love that this styling creme work for all hair types and textures. It works really well on my wavy hair, and helps keep it under control without making it feel crunchy, stiff or dirty. It has a scent, but I can’t really identify what it smells like, but it isn’t overpowering and it doesn’t linger.

Have you tried this one?

Noughty Haircare To The Rescue Intense Moisture Treatment Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Atttitude!

Today I have a review of the Noughty Haircare To The Rescue Intense Moisture Treatment – I purchased it for myself a few weeks ago. [info in italics taken from the Shoppers Drug Mart website]

Noughty To The Rescue 1

This intensive treatment rescues thirsty hair for a storybook smooth ending. A deeply hydrating mask to rejuvenate and restore the thirstiest, most over-processed hair, packed with sweet almond and black oat extracts to hydrate, restructure and transform hair in distress. Black oat extract is packed with natural water reservoirs like amino acids and polysaccharides. It’s been shown to improve the structure of the hair surface by up to 43% making it easier to comb and boosting gloss. Lecithin enhances the hair’s natural barrier, smoothing each shaft to renew its surface. Meadowfoam oil, rich in long chain fatty acids, helps to trap moisture in the hair shaft, rejuvenating hair for a healthy-looking mane. Argan oil, rich in frizz-taming essential fatty acids, helps to increase hair’s elasticity. Luxurious Morrocan argan and almond scent.

Noughty To The Rescue 5

My hair is definitely frizz prone and somewhat dry at the ends, but it is not damaged as I haven’t been colouring my hair, nor have I been heat styling. I chose this hair mask as it sounded like a great choice to tame frizz and hydrate my wavy hair. My hair is so soft after I use this mask and it doesn’t feel weighed down or waxy.

Noughty To The Rescue 2

The texture of this hair mask is very much like a softly set custard, and the scent is mildly nutty from the argan oil and almond. I can smell something else, but I haven’t quite been able to identify what it smells like to me.

Noughty To The Rescue 3

This is the first product that I’ve tried from Noughty Haircare. But I don’t think that it will be the last one!

Kristin Ess Instant Exfoliating Scalp Scrub Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Kristin Ess Instant Exfoliating Scalp Scrub – it was one of the things that I picked up last month from well.ca. [info in italics taken from the Kristin Ess website]

Kristin Ess Instant Exfoliating Scalp Scrub

 

Why is it that we go the extra mile for our skin but not our scalp? This non-drying scrub removes flakes, product build-up, excess sebum, and hard water deposits from the scalp, giving you a cleaner canvas through gentle exfoliation. I formulated this with a sugar complex to keep natural moisture intact.

Kristin Ess Instant Exfoliating Scalp Scrub 2

This is an interesting product – it is a little hard to apply, but once I figured it out, it went on a lot easier. You are supposed to apply it on wet hair, using the nozzle tip – but I found it easier to apply to my scalp with my fingers (but whatever works for you). Next you give yourself a scalp massage, rinse it out and then shampoo and condition as usual. According to the instructions, you can use it once a week – but I’ve been using it every second week.

Kristin Ess Instant Exfoliating Scalp Scrub 5

It makes my scalp slightly tingle when applied – the good tingle, not the allergic reaction tingle. And wow, it soothes and moisturizes the scalp, leaving it feeling super clean.

Have you tried this scalp scrub? Or any other scalp scrub?

MoMi Beauty Styling Jelly Review

Hello, hello!

MoMi Beauty Styling Jelly

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!
