Kérastase Elixir Ultime Indulgent Oil Solid Serum



A little pot of gold, that's what Kerastase's Elixir Ultime Solid Serum  is.

This 0.6 oz jar with the gold lid contains a deeply moisturizing balm laden with 15 oils ( including sunflower seed, olive fruit, sweet almond and apricot seed) to  to tame frizz,  dry ends , flyaways or  apply anywhere your hairs needs some TLC.


According  to the brand this is the first-ever versatile oil serum in a solid form. That of course makes it not only look nice on your vanity and take up a small space, it's great for travel, whether a day trip to a local beach or a longer jaunt. It tucks into a bag easily.

It's also not super greasy despite all the oils, It works into hair well and moisturizes without leaving hair lanky. After you warm it up a bit between fingers, it glides right into hair and has a light woodsy floral fragrance.


Kérastase Elixir Ultime Indulgent Oil Serum Solide is $45, Available at Kerastase-USA.com and Kérastase Salons

Hair Food- Hair Milk Collection



 Hair Food by Clairol is a  haircare line I'd been wanting to try more of.

Previously I'd only tried the Moisturizing Hair Mask deep conditioner  and I really liked it.  It did a great job on my dry areas, easily comparable to some higher end products. 

Now  there's  a new shampoo/conditioner  duo to help smooth and hydrate hair - Hair Milk.  It's Summer, we need that. My hair doesn't frizz a lot but when the dewpoint hits 70, which it does often here,  even  I get the frizzies and pouf. 


This a medium thick  shampoo and conditioner that  made my hair soft and easy to manage but not heavily conditioned.  It doesn't weigh hair down and adds light volume .  For driest hair you'll need a deeper conditioner  and /or  a leave in ( I use a leave in all the time) but overall I'm  really liking this for my normal to slightly dry hair.  My hair was a little smoother and controlled without being flat or blah and it has jasmine and  vanilla for a light, pretty scent .

There are no parabens ,sulfates or dyes in them so they work for all hair including color treated.

 Hair Food- Hair Milk Collection  come in large  17.9 oz pump bottles and are $9.99 each at Target. 





Dove Purely Pampering Sweet Cream & Peony



How Sweet It Is, Sweet Cream, the newest scent from Dove in time to soothe Summer parched skin.

Sweet Cream is a mix of vanilla and peony. Lightly floral and not strong, it's a soft, pretty scent that's just enough. Especially nice at night when you want to wind down and relax.


It comes in a Nutrium moisture filled body wash along with bar soap. I don't have to tell you how soothing this line is to skin. It's always in  use over here.

Dove Purely Pampering Sweet Cream & Peony Body Wash is $ 6.99
Dove Purely Pampering Sweet Cream & Peony  Bar Soap is $ 3.79 for a twin pack.
