FINESSE HYDRATION + SOFTNESS SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER

Haircare is very crucial and can be difficult to maintain. I use to neglect my hair when I was younger and it really caught up to me because now my hair is dry and damaged. I would bleach and dye my hair all sorts of colours because I wanted to be bold and expressive with my look but it really took a toll on my hair. Regardless if it was done at the salon or box hair dye, it did a lot of damage. Not to mention, I wasn’t on top with getting my regular haircuts to allow my hair to grow evenly and be more healthy. Nowadays, I’m more cautious and I ensure I take very good care of hair. I try to wash my hair every other day or wait longer so I don’t overwash or dry out my scalp, I also have been using a lot of hair oils (Moroccan, Argan, Coconut and Camellia oil).

I wanted to give out a special thanks to Carolina for sending over these amazing goodies for me to try and share with you all! She sent over Finesse’s new and revamped hydration & softness shampoo & conditioner duo and also some adorable hair accessories from Scunci.

I personally go through Conditioner quite fast so it’s also nice to get a replenishment and something new to try out. I’ve seen Finesse before but I’ve actually never tried anything from their brand before so this is all quite exciting to me.

Product Claims

  • These two products are enriched with Camellia oil, which is a really nourishing and hydrating oil that can retain moisture within the hair strands and provide hydration. It also is very fast absorbing so it won’t weigh down your hair!
  • These two products synergize and work together to form a protective barrier against damaging pollutants. I’m sure most days, if not every day, we are exposed to UV rays and environmental pollutants that can cause physical harm and damage to the hair – to prevent these from occurring and doing any further damage, we find products to protect it.
  • Available at your local grocery stores and mass retailers across Canada for UNDER $4. Now that my friends is a steal and quite worth trying because you can’t go wrong with trying out affordable products.

Last but not least, Carolina also included some adorable little hair accessories by the Brand called Scunci. I love hair scrunchies and I pretty much wear one or two around my wrist daily because you just never know when you need to tie up your hair. I don’t like eating with hair near my face so I tie it up and these come in handy. I find the band not too stiff and it stretches really nicely so it won’t tug your hair. They come in a wide range of colours and patterns so there’s pretty much something for everyone.

I hope you guys check these out because they’re honestly such a steal! They’re currently available on Walmart.ca for ONLY $ 1.78. I’ve never seen shampoos or conditioners for that cheap, so definitely try it out!

Pamper Yourself with Dr. Teal’s Vitamin C Line

After a long day of work, I’m sure most of us want to sit back, relax, and unwind. There’s really no better way to unwind than having a nice bubble bath. Growing up, baths were never a thing for me because my parents thought it was a waste of water. Only recently I got into them and let me tell you, it is a luxury! Not only it feels great and relaxing, but it’s also something you can enjoy from time to time. This couldn’t have come a better time because I recently received some bath goodies in the mail to share with you all!

If you haven’t heard of Dr. Teal’s before, they are an affordable bath care company and you can actually find many of their products in your local drugstore. Bath products can be pretty expensive and they can add up. I mean, look at Lush for instance! Sure, their packaging and products look appealing but the price tag for each item? No thanks! I’m all about looking for budget-friendly options.

I received their Vitamin C Foaming Bath and also the Vitamin C Bath Salts. Their Vitamin C line offers complete skincare and muscle pain relief. They have a wonderful blend of ingredients that can nourish, hydrate, and brighten the skin. The key ingredients are shea butter, aloe vera, Vitamin E, and also Vitamin C.

What are bath salts, what are they used for and how do you use them?

Epsom Salts are used to treating against minor aches and pain, they always can soothe tired muscles and reduce swelling. Deposit about 1 cup of Epsom salt in warm water and allow it set before going it when the bathwater is “ready”, it should feel silky to the touch.

Add some foaming bath into your bath to make the experience more fun because who doesn’t love bubbles?¬†I hope you guys give their products a try and if you’re not a fan of citrus or orange scents, they do offer other scents in their range like lavender, green tea, eucalyptus and etc.

That’s it for now, folks. Tune in to the next blog post. Until then, take care and stay safe during these uncertain times.
