Zest Fruitboost Revitalizing Gels – your shower will smell like an orchard – giveaway too

Zest fruitboost all 5 fragrances

Zest Fruitboost all 5 fragrances

Did you know that Derby Day is Saturday May 7th? It used to be on my mind more than it is nowadays but that’s mainly because my husband would go to Vegas with friends that weekend giving me a few days to indulge in my favorite activities. I’d leisurely shower since no one else was using up the hot water, I’d pamper my toes, I’d eat a lot of junk food and no real meals, and I’d read a lot.

While I’m not going to have that little reprieve this year, I’m still able to leisurely shower and use one of the 5 Zest Fruitboost Revitalizing Shower Gels. With these $2.98 shower gels (that last through 40 showers) you can pick a different scent almost every day of the week.

The fragrances are fun. You could spend time with the tropics by choosing Peach Mango or Citrus Splash. Or maybe a little fruit salad is in the works for you with Very Berry or Strawberry Kiwi. Then there’s the healthy way to go with Pomegranate Acai Berry. What’s your choice?

If you were able to go to the Kentucky Derby you’d be expected to wear a hat and stand out in the hot sunny weather or possibly rain. Afterwards your hair would need a little bit of TLC which is very achievable with VO5 Hot Oil Therapy.

The magic of Argan oil: Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum

Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum

Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum

Argan oil…it seems like it is a magic elixir that cures all ills. I’ve recently tried a few products from the Simon & Tom line in which every product features the magical Argan oil. There are a few products in particular that I think are standouts, including the Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum ($34.99). As soon as it gets colder outside I start having two issues – dry, brittle hair and dry skin, especially on my elbows and knees. Simon & Tom has Argan oil products that help with any sort of dryness issues from hair to skin.                       PR sample

Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum

My hair is extremely fine and often hair oils are too heavy for me. While hair oils keep my hair from getting crunchy, they also steal all of my volume. The Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum is a beautiful glass bottle full of great hair days. I love the pump that is included – usually this type of oil doesn’t have a pump dispenser so I end up wasting a bunch pouring too much into my hand. That said, I have to be careful to only do half a pump – more than that is too much product for my type of hair. Yes, those of us with fine hair walk a fine line with hair products!

The Argan oil in the Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum gets rid of frizz while it gives hair major shine. It also doesn’t build up over time, which makes hair dull. The oil smells wonderful, with a sweet, nutty fragrance. Soft, shiny, frizz-free hair that smells fabulous…you can’t really ask for more than that. Simon & Tom is the line to check out for Argan oil-based products. They make my hair look great, and just wait until I tell you about their Elbow Treatment Cream that is the answer for dry, rough skin.  – Lisa

Green + Glam Hair Serum – side by side

 

green + glam

 

GREEN + GLAM has created what they call a Hair Repair Mask/Replenishing Serum but it’s not a mask like your mind imagines when you think mask. Instead it’s an oil that protects your hair from the environment and the stresses we put our hair through with all the heat products that we use.

We were each sent a bottle to test and now we’re ready to entice you with our findings.

MARCIA SIDE:

Green + Glam

Green + Glam

I call Green + Glam a hair oil serum and never thought of it as a ‘mask’ until I looked it up to find where you could buy it. To me a mask is a thick cream that I apply in the shower and leave on to soften my hair. Green + Glam ($24.99) can be used as a mask though and as a styling product. If you use it as a mask then apply it to your damp hair and put on a shower cap. 20 minutes is the recommended time of use. Then wash your hair as you normally would. It’s up to you whether you need to use conditioner after shampooing, I find my hair is so soft after using this as a mask that I can skip conditioning.

Me with shiny easy to control hair after Green + Glam

Me with shiny easy to control hair after Green + Glam

I’ve also used Green + Glam Hair Repair Mask aka Replenishing Serum as a styling product but I have to be very very careful about how much I use. The best way for me to use it is just a drop warmed up in my hands and smoothed through. It protects my hair from my blow dryer and my heated tools and leaves it smooth and shiny.

LISA’S SIDE

Marcia is so right…I need to be careful how much of this I use because it is very powerful stuff!

Green and Glam Replenishing Hair Serum 2The first time I used it, I put in the typical amount of serum that I use on wet hair. I have long hair, about mid-back length, so I usually need four pumps of serum. Well, don’t need four pumps of this stuff! Four pumps left me with wet looking hair even after it was blown dry. I used some dry shampoo and quickly recovered, but I learned my lesson. Less is more with Green + Glam Replenishing Serum, and one pump leaves my hair super soft, hydrated, and full of bounce. The serum has a great combination of acai berry oil, ginger extract, organic neroli oil and other fruit oils that give me hair like silk.

Once I actually used Green + Glam correctly!

Monat Rejuvineqe Oil Intensive paves the way to beautiful hair and skin #rejuveniqe

Monat Rejuveniqe

Monat Rejuveniqe

*sample provided by iFabbo*

The best discovery I’ve made since I’ve been blogging is using oils for skin and hair. I honestly never thought I’d say that or think that. I always thought of oils as … well oily! If your hair or skin has oils how would it help to add more oil? But new technology has changed that and now the benefits of the types of oils available to us are amazing.

MONAT REJUVENIQE OIL INTENSIVE contains the best oils from around the world. It’s a combination of 11 different ingredients like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene, omega-6 fatty acids, nutrients and amino acids;  all  beneficial for skin and hair.

Here is a list from Monat’s site to show what is in the product and why:

Abyssinian: The Key ingredient in Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive. From the crambe abyssinica plant native to central Africa, it’s a rare and unique combination of fatty acids prized for their ability to do everything from mimic the effects of silicon for unbeatable shine; lubricate the hair deep into the follicle; and protect and coat each strand.

Baobab: The renowned baobab trees have grown for centuries in the arid climates of India and Africa, and its exotic oil from the tree’s seeds are rich in antioxidant-rich palmitic acid and Vitamin F.

Buriti: The fruit of Africa’s Moriche palm – known as the Tree of Life – is one of the world’s richest sources of beta-carotene, which moisturizes and nourishes.

Camelia: Also known as tea-seed oil, it’s ultra-hydrating oil responsibly harvested from China that cleans the scalp and pampered dry stands thanks to its abundance of Vitamin E and polyphenols.

Carrot Seed: Specially sourced from the mountains of Switzerland, it’s rich in Vitamin A to condition the scalp, plus Alpha Linolenic Acid for anti-inflammatory protection.

Monoi: Selectively sourced from the warm tropics of Tahiti, it’s a restorative oil rich in Omega 3 and fatty acids to heal damage and promote growth from the root.

Meadowfoam: This oil is sourced right from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Named for its flowers’ resemblance to white foam on the ocean, meadowfoam oil is another outstanding source of Omega 9 fatty acids for shine and sheen.

Moringa: Ancient Egyptians prized Moringa Oil for its nourishing properties, thanks to antioxidants and Vitamin E, which help combat skin fatigue, plus clean and purify the scalp.

Rejuvineqe Oil

Rejuvineqe Oil

Now that you know the essentials, let’s talk about this magnificent product. There are many ways you can use this oil. You can use it as a prewash hair treatment. Put it in your hair prior to washing and leave it in for a minute or so before you step in the shower. Another way is to use it as a styling treatment on your wet hair to help smooth and protect before you use your blowdryer. You can also use it on your dry hair to smooth and protect. It’s great for the ends of your hair if you use a small amount.

Rejuvineqe

Rejuvineqe

Rejuvineqe Oil Intensive by Monat isn’t just meant for hair; it’s also a treat for face and nails. It’s an intensive oil so a little drop will do you.

Rejuvineqe Oil Intensive top

I love the packaging of it. It’s sealed well so air can’t get through to it. Unscrew the top, press the button and the vial fills with the oil. Then press the button again to get out the amount you want. A bonus for me is the wonderful citrus fragrance. Plus it’s a cruelty free brand that uses no parabens, salt, sulfates, artificial color, PEG or chemical fragrance. If you use a keratin product to straighten your hair then you really need to appreciate that it doesn’t use salt or sulfates.

This is an expensive treat at $99 but a little goes a long way. I’m careful to use every drop of it so I rub it into my hands after I use it on my hair. This elegant oil is one to put on your list of items you need in your life. — Marcia

Huile de Leonor Greyl PreShampoo Oil Treatment

I remember when I was a kid green hair was a common problem. Hair got bleached out by the sun and then swimming in lakes and pools slowly turned locks a freakish-looking green by the end of August. We had no clue how to prevent this…and when I got older I experienced similar summer issues with color fading and dryness. Leonor Greyl sent the BIZ the perfect answer for all summer hair protection issues:  Huile de Leonor Greyl PreShampoo Oil Treatment ($57).

Leonor Greyl Pre-Shampoo

Huile de Leonor Greyl PreShampoo

Huile de Leonor Greyl PreShampoo is a blend of different oils that is applied to dry hair. It can be a simple pre-shampoo treatment or it can be used as a protectant before swimming, surfing, or going into the sun. The oil is a combination of refined copra oil that comes from cold-pressed coconut kernels, and mongono oil, which is extracted from the nuts of an African tree found in the Kalahari Desert.

Leonor Greyl Pre-Shampoo

The oil has a wonderfully light, clean scent. It’s very easy to apply, just pour some oil into hands and smooth through hair. Then, go out and swim/sun/scuba to your hearts content and hair is protected from all the chlorine, salt, and UVA/B rays. The oil won’t just dissolve off when you dive into the pool or ocean as it protects hair from water to a temperature of 77 degrees. So in those cooler waters, the oil stays on beautifully. Later, just rinse out before shampooing. This PreShampoo oil is a must-have if you are a big outdoors person!

It’s also a must-have for those with colored, bleached, straightened, or dry hair. Putting this on for ten minutes before shampooing softens and detangles hair. It’s a beautiful treatment and some nights I put it on before bed for a great head of hair the next day.

Huile de Leonor Greyl PreShampoo is a cult classic and for good reason. If you have never tried this elegant haircare line before, I would recommend starting with this truly amazing product.  – Lisa
