Summer can wreak havoc on my hair, with all the extra time spent outdoors in the sun and water my hair can look a bit dull and lifeless. My hair needs some serious TLC right now so I headed to Walmart to stock up on some new Pantene products. After checking out the different Pantene lines the Ultimate 10 collection caught my eye. The BB formulas multi task to correct 10 different hair issues. I have been using this combo for a week now and love how great my hair feels, the conditioner has really improved my hair.

The ends of my hair have been really dry and I have needed a good shampoo that will get my hair clean without drying it out. Enter Pantene Ultimate 10 Shampoo, after just the first wash my hair was less frizzy and easier to manage. With continued use my hair is getting smoother and shinier. I love that Ultimate 10 doesn’t just clean but works to repair and protect my hair with every wash.

A great conditioner can be hard to find! I have very thin, naturally curly hair and quite a bit of it. So I need a conditioner that is hydrating enough to tame my curls but light enough to not weigh them down. I have been using the Ultimate 10 Conditioner for a week and LOVE the results. Instead of dry, icky ends my hair is smoother, softer and incredibly shiny.

Pantene Ultimate 10 is hydrating enough to moisturize my hair but still very lightweight.  In just days my hair has gone from dull and lifeless to shiny and hyrdrated. Pantene shampoo and conditioner work together to give your hair strength against damage. And when you use Pantene shampoo and conditioners together is makes hair 2x stronger than shampoo alone.

Review: L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation #VLBlurfection


Ok I will admit I’m a foundation snob. I have always felt with foundation you get what you pay for and if you go cheap its going to wreck your skin or simply not work. So when I was asked to review the new L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation I might have had some preconceived notions about how it would work.



After my first use I realized I was very wrong thinking you had to break the bank to get a great foundation. The word Blur might make you think heavy, silicone like foundations but this is a very lightweight foundation. It felt incredibly light on my skin and left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth.  I love how it made my pores nearly disappear and evened out my skin tone. Just a pea sized amount it enough to perfect my skin and I finish with a setting powder. A great foundation and under $15, I can’t wait to check out more from the L’Oréal Paris Blur line!

Jergens Natural Glow: My Spring Beauty Routine, Plus $500 Giveaway!

Jergens Natural Glow and She Speaks wanted to know how I change things up for my Spring Beauty Routine. I am a big believer in changing products with the season, what works in the cold of winter is not necessarily the best thing for long, warm Spring days.

One of the big changes is my mo moisturizer in cold, windy winter my skin needs extra protection from a heavier day cream. But as Spring arrives its far too heavy and can lead to breakouts and too much shine. I start using light moisturizers made for the warmer months and I really love tinted versions with SPF saves a ton of time and add a bit of gloss and mascara and I am done.

I also add highlights in the Spring to brighten up my look, and I start using color protection shampoo and conditioners to protect my new color. Add a weekly face and hair mask and I can keep my sensitive, combo skin from freaking out during the rapid weather changes of Spring in the Pacific NW.

Nothing says Spring like some fun new tops or dresses. I like to find a few fun, affordable sundresses that I can dress up with heels and accessories or throw over a swimsuit with sandals for a day by the pool. Pedicures are a must this time of year with toes that are on display in  heels, wedges  and sandals I make sure I take the time take care of my feet and keep my toes painted a bright pink or coral for Spring.

 My Spring beauty is definitely about saving time and keeping things light and easy! Do you change your routine up for Spring? What is one of the first things you purchase to get ready for the warmer weather?

Jergens makes it easier than ever to glow with the NEW Natural Glow Moisturizers that provides great color, year-round, without the sunless tanner odor.
