Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil

As a BzzAgent, I’m able to test out new products released by brands that I already love! In this case, I was sent a free bottle of the new Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil. I’m already a long-time fan of their hair dye line and have also recently started using their straightening heat protectant spray, so being picked for this campaign was a pleasant surprise. :) Marketed as an everyday multi-purpose product for hair, body, and face, this weightless formula absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave an oily residue. It combines three different oils: olive, avocado, and shea.

Olive oil moisturizes, protects, and replenishes your dry hair, improving its strength and elasticity. You face and body benefit from antioxidants that help protect against skin damage. Avocado oil is loaded with Vitamin E, and protects against dryness while locking in color and moisture to keep your hair looking radiant and silky soft. The oil’s natural hydrating abilities promote soft and supple skin, too. Shea oil is known for heaving unique healing properties. It rejuvenates damaged hair and leaves it with a healthy shine. It’s also a great moisturizer that helps improve elasticity in skin. –Garnier Fructis

Since I’ve been embracing my natural hair lately, and choose to air-dry instead of blow-dry, I could always use some extra moisture. After using this product every morning for a week.. I noticed that it was shinier, my waves were more defined, my dry ends didn’t feel as brittle, and my locks were overall softer.

TIPS:

1) Do not apply directly into your hair. Especially your bangs. The product is very heavy and soaks in really quickly, so it won’t get distributed evenly and you’ll just end up looking greasy. If you have medium/long hair like me, two spritzes into your palm will be enough. Rub your hands together, and run them through your damp hair at least three inches from your scalp in a downward massaging motion. Once your hair has dried and you still think it could use some extra moisture or softness, do not use more than one spritz to touch up. A little goes a long way!

2) If you have oily and/or acne-prone skin, do not apply onto your face. Not for extended periods of time, at least. I didn’t even risk it, since I know that I break out really easily. If you have dry skin on other parts of your body, though, I highly recommend this. It’s a lot more lightweight than other similar oil-based products, and gives a healthy glow. Since I love showing off my legs in the warmer seasons, I can imagine myself using a little bit of this to accentuate them in shorts/skirts/dresses. :P

School Spirit & Pride!!!

Sorry for the long break, guys! I’ve just been so busy that I’ve been a little exhausted lately. Also, I’ve recently gotten sick. ;_; Fortunately, I’ve been drinking a lot of water and taking vitamins, so I’m on the road to recovery. :D


Oh, you know, just chillin’ in my staff shirt.

So what’s been going on with me during the past few weeks? Well.. not only did I actively participate in preparing for Homecoming 2011 and the preceding festivities the other week, but I also performed a choreographed flash mob to Lady Gaga’s Hair with some other students in my quad during the Seawolf Showcase! Here are two videos taken from different angles. I’m all the way on the right. :P



And now that it’s October, I’ve updated the bulletin board and door decs in my hallway! :D Having the opportunity to be creative is probably my favorite part about being an RA. Going along with a Halloween theme, I wrote all of my residents’ names on Gloomy Bear paper cut-outs. : )

And I printed out some information on the history of Halloween, and how it’s celebrated differently across the world. Of course, I had to include an extensive list of great horror movies to watch during this time of the year. :P I admit that this isn’t my best board, but supplies were short in the resource room. >.<;

I had also been assigned the task of creating the flyer for my building’s quad-wide event next month. I always get so excited at every opportunity to Photoshop, so I made sure it looked great. Especially since it’s going to be posted everywhere! :D

For those of who you who aren’t familiar, The Clothesline Project is a popular campaign that raises awareness for violence against women through writing powerful phrases on t-shirts and hanging them in public on a clothesline. Because the theme for my undergraduate college this semester is anti-bullying, we’re tying that into the program as well. : ) Hopefully, we have a huge turnout!

OXO Candela Glow

As a BzzAgent, I get the opportunity to try out some nifty stuff! This time, I received a package of OXO Candela Glow rechargeable lights. Which is actually really cool, since I can’t have real candles in my dorm room. (Fire hazard, duh.) The set comes with two medium-sized LED lamps and a charging station.

The photos on the official website are actually an accurate representation of what these lights look like. :P The glow is soft, and gives a really romantic vibe to any dimly lit room or corner.

Personally, I keep them in a little shelf above my closet space. The glow really diffuses within the cubby hole, and gives my dorm room a really relaxed atmosphere. Which is awesome, since the overhead lights in my room aren’t the best quality and my built-in desk lamp is blindingly bright. Disregard the terrible picture quality below – my camera doesn’t work so well in the dark.

As far as the power goes, I accidentally left them on overnight and it took about 10 hours for them to go out. Not sure if they were fully charged when I turned them on, though, so they may actually be able to last even longer. :D My only issue with the product is that they cost $39.99 for a set of two. When I saw the price tag, I was really glad that I got these for free. If they were a cheaper, I’d totally tell you guys to go decorate your homes with them. Until next time! ^.^
