I’m in love.
With a conditioner.
Wait, what did you think I meant?
My mother picked up a 12oz Ion Effective Care Treatment at Sally Beauty to make the most of a coupon she had. Given that I was low on conditioner at the time, I happily tried it out.
This 100% vegan product packs quite a conditioning punch. You use it for 3-5 minutes in the shower but it conditions like a deep, 20 minute conditioner. It has a very light scent which washes out completely, and it feels so good when you have it on. My hair ends up shiny, full, and vibrant after use.
It reminds me of my beloved Fekkai Ageless Creme Luxe Hair Treatment in consistency and texture. I plan on alternative the two of them off in the future, but it’s great to find a quality product at a lower price point to feather into my hair care routine.

NYX Retractable Eyeliner in Silver
Lyn and I have been caring for our grandmother lately, which is why we haven’t been writing much – or getting enough sleep to have a sparkly glint in our eyes. I picked up a NYX Retractable Mechanical Pencil Eye Liner in Silver a few weeks ago and tried it out on my waterline.
I’m impressed. It adds a sparkle to the eye without being an overtly silver line, or too flashy. It covers redness well. It applies without a hint of tugging. I usually put it on and then fill in the corner of my eyes with Stila Kajal Eyeliner in Topaz – also a great, creamy, subtle waterliner. Used together, they make eyes look huge and bright.
The first time I tried the NYX Eye Liner I was meeting with my trainer and I commented on how tired I was. He looked at me quizzically and said “I never would have guessed – and I can tell when you’ve been through the wringer.” This guy does not mince words when it comes to whether I look tired or not, and before I put on the waterliner I really looked tired especially in the eye area (I wear very little makeup to the gym – so it wasn’t a fruity hued lipstick or anything else that was coloring his view). After that, I was completely sold on this lovely and inexpensive liner to give my eyes a sparkle when I don’t naturally have one.
