Non-caloric sweets for stockings and more: Macarons by Milk & Sass

Milk & Sass Macarons

Not everyone loves macarons but I do. Give me a pistachio, almond, or chocolate macaron and I’ll do somersaults for you. I love their sweetness. Whether you are with me or not you can indulge in a different type of macaron with Milk & Sass.

This palm size beauty is a brush and mirror combo that will fit very nicely in a stocking or wrapped for a gift. Imagine the surprise when opened since your giftee is going to want to take a bite.

The MACARON is a detangling hairbrush & compact mirror that’s adorable for purse or home. My husband looked at it and wanted it in the shower since he loves a shower brush. In my new gray and white bath this lavender one will look great (though I’ll keep the mirror out of the shower). Available in 6 shades meaning I could be nice and get him the black one while I keep the pretty pink, green and lavender. But it’s my shower too so the lavender will do just great.

Here’s what Milk & Sass has to say about their brush: Superior tangle taming, minimal breakage, maximum shine. Sturdy bristles work on every hair age, type, and texture. Here’s what I have to say: right on! I love the way this feels on my scalp and how it easily it glides through my hair. This sturdy brush and mirror are perfect for your purse too since it won’t open up. It’s lightweight, comes in those 6 great colors and is a great addition to my bath and purse.The pink one instantly jumped into my purse.

DESSATA – the new detangling brush that your hair is asking for

Little did I know when I was sent DESSATA, a new detangling brush, that I’d be thrilled with it for my entire family. I was the kind of kid, teen, adult that brushed my hair all the time. When I was teaching I wanted my hair looking neat and professional so I kept brushes in my desk and purse. As times have loosened I’m less controlling about my hair but I still want it straight and looking its best. That’s poured over into my daycare life since I’ve been frustrated many times with my 3 year old granddaughter’s hair. She won’t let me brush it – until now.

Dessata is a professional tool sold for $12.99 at Target and Amazon. It takes away all the difficulty of brushing and detangling hair. I can use it on my wet hair after a shower and it doesn’t pull or break off my ends even if I haven’t put a leave-in conditioner in yet. I use it on my dry hair to help me look put together.

I’ve had my husband use it and we’ve used it on my grandson when he has what we call Bedhead. It works well on all 4 of us. My granddaughter at last allows me to brush through her hair which was such a challenge before and is now a breeze. She likes to use it on herself too. Shocked me!

Dessata brushes have 440 flexible triple height bristles which is 5 times more than their competitor. There’s no handle to it since it fits in the palm of your hand with ease. It seems to adapt to everyone in my family’s head. While the bristles look sharp they aren’t at all, they are made from a comfortable gel in Spain. The composition of them keeps them from breaking down.

While we have straight or wavy hair around here, it’s recommended for all hair types including curly and coarse. Since it doesn’t pull it leaves you static free and with shiny hair. I don’t think you want to be without this tool for your hair. I’m giving it 4 thumbs up (one from each of us). —  Marcia
