Review - TRESemme Waterless Foam Shampoo

Hi everyone!
So I bought this foam shampoo a while ago, maybe 3 weeks ago, and have been testing it out since. I ended up buying the waterless foam over the dry shampoo simply because of my hair type. I have thick, long, and way hair, so I thought the waterless foam would work better.
Once I pumped it on my hand, first thing that I noticed was the smell. It has an extreme citrus smell to it. At first it was kind of strong and wasn't too sure how it would be in my hair. After I followed the directions and towel dried my hair, the smell didn't bother me as it did in the beginning. And for me, I really liked how it made my hair really soft. The first time I used this was for all my hair, which took about 8-10 pumps. Now I tend to mainly use it for my bangs. When they start to get a little oily I just use this and I'm back to doing what I needed to do. So fast and effortless to use.

Quality: 5 out of 5
 Packaging: 5 out of 5
Overall Rating: 4 out of 5
Pricing: 5 out of 5
Would I buy this when I run out? Possibly

So it's good when I'm in a rush a want something to get rid of the oil in my bangs fast, but would I use it on all my hair all the time? Probably not.

Have you tried this or thinking about trying it? Let me know!

Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol Review

 I had won a bunch of Napoleon Perdis goodies from Bren (Somuchpretty) and her event for her Fashion Frontline website launch. And I thought I would review a couple of products because they are so amazing! This 2-in-1 Blush and Bronze Powder is something that I have never found in any other beauty product out there. This can be used wet and dry when you apply. 
 Sweep cheeks with Bronzing Brush while dry for a fresh and natural glow. Or very lightly wet the brush for a stronger contour and create a more intense bronze and beautiful glow. Also contains Vitamin E for soft and supple skin.

Quality: 5 out of 5
 Packaging: 5 out of 5
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
Pricing: 3 out of 5
Would I buy this when I run out? Definitely! 

 I did give the pricing a 3 out of 5 because it is $50, which to me way expensive for a blush. BUT it is really amazing quality and is very opaque. And plus it looks amazing all year round. Everything has a negative and for this product it is only the pricing. Other than that it is the best blush/bronzer that I have ever tried, owned, and used.

Moisturize Naturally - Ecotools Body Butter


This review is for the Ecotools Body Butter. Did you know they make other products other than brushes? They do and you can see a full list here
 This is a great way to keep your skin soft and moisturized while it being all natural. I used this for about a week straight in the mornings and at night. The smell is good, I like it! The one thing that would really bother me was the way my hands were so greasy afterward. Since my hands were greasy, I kind of felt like I had to wait for my legs and arms to dry for about 5 minutes and then get dressed. Not good if I'm in a rush. But good if I'm just getting out the shower at night and have the time to let it soak in. It really did banish my dry skin when I use it consistently. 

Rating: 4 out of 5
