Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray

I bought this product about a year ago after my hair stylist curled my hair and used a heat protectant spray. I decided to go find my own to use!  I used to use Tresemme shampoo and conditioner, so I decided to give theirs a try!
It has a nice light misting sprayer.
FIRST of all, this is a horrible, horrible picture of me, BUT it shows how frizzy my hair was this morning.  It was a rainy day and I wanted to show you how well this product really works.  I didn't have any make up on yet, I was in the process of getting ready...
I just sprayed it all over my hair and then I brushed it out.  It instantly makes my hair shiny and gets rid of the friz.
 Next I curled my hair.  I have very thick hair, and it has a hard time holding a curl.  My hair is just too heavy to keep a curl for long, so I really crank the heat up on my curling iron.  That's why I really need the heat protectant.  It is also why I can't review the hair spray I used because I don't think I could review it fairly trying to curl my hair.

 Then I just sprayed it all down with hair spray.
 It keeps my hair shiny and I know my hair isn't totally getting ruined from the heat.
 I don't use a lot of heat on my hair so it's not used to it and this really helps me keep my hair healthy.
 Now my FAVORITE part of this spray!  Haha!! I love this little lock and unlock button.  I don't know why, but I just think it's so fun.  It's the little things :)

 Do you use any kind of heat protectant?  If you haven't tried one yet, I would recommend this one.  I really like it and I have no regrets getting this. 

Thanks for reading! xo, Heather Honey :)

eos lip balm

These have been around for a couple of years now I think, but I had never tried it.  I always wanted to see what was so cool about these.  I decided to finally give it a try.  It's called eos, and it's lip balm.  Not just any old lip balm, it's lip balm in a "wierd shape".  Haha.
 It is nice to see someone trying something really different than the usual stick of lip balm.  It's a little sphere rubbery container, but it sits flat because it's flat on the bottom.  It can easily roll off the table if you leave it sitting there-if say you have a cat who likes to jump up on tables so she can push things off of them...easy to find in a purse or bag because of the shape as well.
 Just twist and the top comes off to reveal a round thing of lip balm.  Even though it's pretty big it applies really easily though.
 I really liked the scent I picked out.  I think it might be my favorite thing about it.  I got "summer fruit".  It smells great and taste great actually too!  My kitty likes how it smells too. :)  It think since the ingredients include these fruit extracts it's a mixture of these scents: blueberry, strawberry and peach.
 I also really love that it's 100% natural and 95% organic.  It also happens to be paraben and petrolatum free, gluten free and isn't tested on animals.  All good stuff!  It has vitamin E, shea butter, jojoba oil to soften your lips.  I don't think it doesn't anything spectacular in the moisturising department but it works good enough. 
I would try another flavor.  I thought it was pretty good! Hope your summer is off to a great start! XO, Heather Honey

Burt's Carrot Creme

I got this little miracle in a Burt's Bees Kit a few years ago.  I had to share this little jem.  I LOVE it.  It is Burt's Bees Farmer's Market Carrot Nutritive Creme.
 Burt's describes it as "Precious carrot seed oil has been used throughout history to revive and repair sun damaged and aging skin.  The results are simply miraculous."  I agree-they are!! 
 When ever I get a little too much sun and my face is a little red and dry I apply this at night to my skin.  You can apply it with a little water mixed in during the day or in full concentration at night.  I usually just go full concentration at night and let it work it's magic while I sleep. The next morning my sun burn is practically gone, my skin is soft and moisturized. 
 I absolutely love the smell of this stuff.  I don't know what it exactly smells like? carrots? but I like it. It's very pleasant.  I know that there is sweet almond oil, avacado oil, grape seed oil, carrot seed oil, and rosemary extract.  I guess all that stuff mixed together creates this comforting little smell.
 The other night I actually couldn't find this little glass jar and was frantically looking everywhere for it.  I was so upset that it could be "lost" that I even had my huband joining in the search!  Well it was sitting right on my make up table the whole time staring me right in the face...oops!  That's how much I love it though.
 I would give this a try after a day of sun and see if you like it as much as I do.  Nobody likes sun damage!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend! Thanks for reading! xo, Heather Honey

Lip Inflation

I picked up Sally Hansen's Lip Inflation Extreme at Rite Aid and have been using it for a little while now.  I liked the idea of it making my lips look fuller and it was a very pretty pink shimmery color.

 I like the packaging.  I like that the lid is a rectangle shape instead of a cylinder.  It is also easy to find in my purse!
 You can see the pretty pink shimmer in this picture.  The color I got was Sheer Pink.  I really like the color, I think it is a great color.  I like wearing it alone and over lipstick.
So the deal is it does NOT plump my lips any noticable amount.  I don't think it makes them look any bigger.  This lipgloss was about $9 and I think the couple extra bucks is because you are paying for the "plumping". 
It does have a cinnamon taste that I love, it uses cinnamon extract in the ingredients.  It also has a little bit of a smell to it to, I like it though.
Overall I like the color, I like how it feels, taste and smells, but it's not lip plumping.  If you do purchase this one, I wouldn't buy it for that purpose.  I would say it's just a nice regular lipgloss.  Thanks for reading! xo, Heather Honey
