My First Experience with Keratin Hair Treatment!

Two weekends ago, I finally was able to do something that I have been wanting to do for a very long time… Get the keratin hair treatment! My hair is crazy after I shower; it’s fine for an hour or two if I leave it as is but then get super puffy, frizzy and uncontrollable! I have to straighten it on a daily basis and I have damaged my hair from it so much.

I found a Groupon for the keratin for only $89 here in LA and I looked up the yelp reviews on the salon and made an appointment.

I ended up getting my hair colored, cut and the treatment done all within less than 3 hours! I was able to finally wash my hair last night and oh my goodness… I’m in love! My hair is straight(90% still has a little bit of wavy at the back hair but I’m totally OK with it) soft and so not frizzy anymore! I love that I didn’t have to use the flat iron or a blow dryer to straighten my hair! I wish I had taken a before and after picture!

If you are debating whether or not to get it done, I highly recommend doing it… It’s like changing!!!

ULTA haul & product review

img_2017-02-11-202653

I went to ULTA a few days ago because I wanted to get an eye cream and an eyebrow pencil…I came out with a few extra stuff as well! Does that ever happen to you? Happens to me all the time…I’ll go in for one thing but come out with a few (maybe more than a few) extra stuff.

Look through the gallery to see what I go. I will be adding my thoughts on the products as well down below…

I had never tried the Murad Clarifying Cleanser before so I was excited to try especially since I like shopping more for skin care products than actual make up. Because I had never tried it, I got the travel size version first before I purchase the actual big size one. I have used a few times now and I LOVE it. I have been using it with my clarisonic and it has left my skin so clean but it does leave it kinda dry; it has salicylic acid acne treatment in it which usually dries out my skin. I feel a bit of a tingle when I wash it off my face and it feels so fresh to me.

I then wanted to get an eye cream and I have heard great things about benefit eye cream called its potent and I wanted to give it a try. Again I didn’t want to purchase the regular size since it was my first time so I purchased the travel size one which came in  box with a few other goodies. So far I love the eye cream, but my favorite I would have to say is the facial cream by benefit. It is so moisturizing and smells so good! I will for sure be purchasing the facial cream but may shop around for an eye cream…if you have one that you love please let me know in the comments below 🙂

I always go with Anastasia brow pencil for my brows…I was actually disappointed this time because I used it for two days and there was no more product left inside…usually these last me for a good few weeks!

I have been meaning to get a beauty blender but couldn’t find the original one at ulta that day so I ended up getting the sponge to contour with; but I love it for applying my foundation actually. I love that the bottom of it is small and fits perfectly in my fingers.

I have weak nails and so I got a nail harder nail polish to try out to see how I like it along with nail filer because I always lose those.

I have been into blow drying my hair lately rather than straightening it so I went ahead and purchased a new round brush and I love it.

I have been hearing a lot about the poo-poourri so I wanted to give it a try…first of it, it smells so good and secondly it actually works so woohoo!

What are some of your favorite skin care products???
