ColorProof SuperRich Shampoo and Conditioner

ColorProof SuperRich Shampoo and Conditioner

I wash my hair every third day and recently my shampoo and conditioner du jour is the ColorProof SuperRich Shampoo ($34) and Conditioner ($34). My hair is pretty long, about mid-back, so the ends get very dry. This shampoo/conditioner duo is extremely hydrating yet doesn’t weigh down my fine strands. They also leave my hair wonderfully soft, floaty and shiny. And in a pinch you can use the shampoo as a body wash – and boy do I love a product that multi-tasks!! I’ve also noticed that it keeps my color-treated hair vibrant and true. It’s great stuff.

ColorProof Whipped Bodifying Mousse and Epic Hold Hairspray

ColorProof Whipped Bodifying Mousse

If I plan to curl my hair, nothing beats the hold and volume of the Whipped Bodifying Mousse ($26). I can’t believe the beautiful fullness and body this thick creamy mousse gives my fine hair! It’s like a miracle. And my curls really last too. I spray them with hairspray in the morning once and that’s all I need – my curls still look great the next morning. I usually use a hot iron or hot rollers and the difference when I use a dollop of the Whipped Bodifying Mousse on my damp hair before drying then styling is significant. This stuff is totally worth it.

ColorProof Whipped Bodifying Mousse and Epic Hold Hairspray

My most favorite hairspray of all time is the ColorProof Epic Hold Hairspray so I have to give it yet another shout out – it’s just the best and I buy it in bulk. I go into palpitations if I don’t have at least two extras on hand. HardCoreTM Epic Hold Color Protect Hairspray holds my curls but doesn’t make them stiff as a board. It’s also a go-to hairspray for color treated hair.

HardCore Epic Hold Hairspray has a very slight and tolerable scent that quickly dissipates. I have never found a hairspray with this amount of control that didn’t have a scent and luckily this one is very easy on the nose. It simply holds my style better than anything else I’ve tried, without stiffness or crunchiness. Absolute holy grail.

ColorProof Anti-Frizz Weatherproof Spray

ColorProof Anti-Frizz Weatherproof Spray

But another great hairspray to have is the Anti-Frizz Weatherproof Spray ($29). Wow is this stuff cool! If it’s humid or rainy, or super windy out, I spray this on either by itself or else before my regular hairspray to keep my curls locked in and to keep frizz locked out. The mist actually repels any moisture, enveloping hair and giving it complete and total protection. It keeps frizz away and keep hair perky and dry.

ColorProof never ever lets me – or my hairstyle! – down.  You should enter to win yourself some ColorProof today!! Entering is easy. The good folks at ColorProof are giving away the fantastic Whipped Bodifying Mousse.  The giveaway ends on 10/16/2017 and is US only. There are 2 winners and you could certainly be one!

With Mally Beauty Airbrush Perfect Skin Mousse you’ll look effortlessly beautiful

Mally Effortless Airbrush Perfect Skin Mousse

Mally Beauty Effortless Airbrush Perfect Skin Mousse

Mally Roncal has the type of energetic beauty that can sell me anything. She could sell ice to Eskimos and sand to desert dwellers. Her personality totally shines through whenever you see her on TV and makes you want to buy her products in mass quantities. mally

But that’s not really enough for me or for you. The products have to match up to your standards and what Mally says about them. I was sent Mally Beauty Effortless Airbrush Perfect Skin Mousse to test out and now I am about to buy ice and sand from Mally. This foundation is that good.

While this only comes in 5 shades (Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, and Rich) on Mally Beauty, it’s available in 8 shades on QVC (the 5 mentioned plus Medium Light, Medium Tan, and Deep) ($45 for brush and foundation). I found a perfect match in Fair. I wouldn’t change one thing about the shade once it’s blended onto my face.

I usually shake the can of Effortless Airbrush Perfect Skin Mousse but you really don’t have to do so. This is incredibly lightweight yet gives my skin perfect coverage. I don’t use a lot to get that coverage either but I could build it up if necessary. The Mousse is “formulated with specially coated pigments that adhere to skin for impeccable long-wear with a feel that’s wonderfully light and airy”.

One way that the Mally Airbrush Perfect Skin Mousse is different is that you get wonderful hydration for your skin and you always look luminous but not shiny. Wearing it makes me feel confident about my skin.

It comes with a fabulous foundation brush that is soft yet firm. It’s the perfect accompaniment for the foundation. It helps blend it in minutes. The brush itself is a great one for your collection.

This is currently my most used foundation, even more than the CC Creams that I love so much. I love the coverage, the feel, the shade Fair, and the longevity of this mousse. If you haven’t tried this, it’s time. I’m sure all the Mallynistas would agree. — Marcia

Cristophe Volumizing Hair Care – get full volume hair and a free conditioner, too

I inherited many things from my beloved grandmother. I inherited her work ethic, her heightened intuition, and her somewhat naughty sense of humor. I inherited her love for gossip, unfortunately. I also was the happy – and unhappy – recipient of some physical attributes. I have her large chest and small waist (pretty happy about that).  But I also got her bunions and super fine hair (not so happy about those!). I had bunion surgery and took care of that problem…but the fine hair? I am on a constant quest to improve that particular inheritance. So of course I was happy when Cristophe sent the BIZ their Volumizing products to test.

Cristophe

Cristophe Volumizing Shampoo, Conditioner, and Mousse

Used together these three products promise thicker, fuller looking hair even if your hair is very fine. This is not a system that gives you soft, sleek hair – smoothing the hair shaft will decrease volume, not increase it. Your hair many not feel super soft, but it will look much thicker and fuller.

Considering Cristophe is a high-end salon in Beverly Hills, the price point on these products is pretty fantastic. The Volumizing Shampoo ($8.99) has a really nice sort of spicy unisex scent that doesn’t linger. Ingredients include UV protectors to keep hair safe from sun rays, Creatine for hair strength and elasticity, and Vitamin C for shine. The Volumizing Conditioner ($8.99) has the same scent as the shampoo. While it moisturizes, it doesn’t flatten hair. It has thickening ingredients plus UV protectors, Creatine, and Vitamin C.

The Volumizing Mousse ($10.99) is a wonderfully creamy, spongy mousse that really thickens and increases hair volume. Like the other volumizing products, it has UV protectors, Creatine, and Vitamin C. I find that I need a small amount that I apply mostly to my root area when my hair is damp to get the best volume. If your hair is extremely fine, you will want to put more on the length of your hair. However know that this will make your hair less soft – which is an OK exchange for more volume, in my opinion. Another quick tip:  use a round brush when blow drying and really focus that heat on the roots.
