Summer sun protection, perfected!

Love, love, love Supergoop! My kids are so fair they can get a sunburn from bright lighting so I am always looking from great sunblock products that are easy to apply. One of my favorites this summer has to be Supergoop! SPF 30+ Everyday UV Lotion Spray the formula is so lightweight and absorbs amazingly quick. The spray makes it easy to coat even the most fidgety kid and the best part hours of fun in the summer sun and no burns!

I always have a few Supergoop! SPF 30+ Sunscreen Swipes in my car and purse for on the go protection. I just love this collection anything that protects my family and my skin this well and is easy to use, sold!

Not a fan of Frederic Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless

I went to Ulta the other day, and went straight to Fekkai, for my must-have Glossing Cream (I’ll never use anything else on my hair!). I noticed that Fekkai has a new line of products, called Silky Straight Ironless.

Each product in the Silky Straight Ironless collection, infused with advanced micro-smoothing technology, is created to work synergistically to create and hold chic, straight style and luxuriously silky texture without effort. This weightless Smooth Finish Serum wraps each hair strand with concentrated smoothing agents and fights humidity, frizz and curl all day for sleek and shiny hair.

I have always had a problem with frizzy hair, and while Glossing Cream is the best product for this, I still have flyaways all day long to deal with! So I picked up Fekkai’s Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum. The description read:

This weightless Smooth Finish Serum wraps each hair strand with concentrated smoothing agents and fights humidity, frizz and curl all day for sleek and shiny hair.

How to use: For best results, apply 1-2 pumps and spread through dry hair. For especially unruly hair, combine with the Ironless Straightening Balm on wet hair before blow-drying.

Sounds perfect, no?

Well no…it’s not. It doesn’t work at fighting frizz AT ALL. It did not leave me with sleek and shiny hair. In fact, I’m not sure it didn’t make my hair worse!

I returned it to Ulta, and bought another bottle of Glossing Cream.
