Suave soothes the dandruff itch

Suave Anti Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner bottles Suave soothes the dandruff itch Do you guys remember when the only choice in dandruff shampoo was the blue, chalky stuff? The one that made your hair feel like straw afterwards, but you suffered thru because it was drying out, and clearing up, your flakes? Yeah. The Suave Scalp Solutions Nourishing Coconut and Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner are not like that. At all.

With all of these ridiculous 110+degree temps around here in Oklahoma, I was sweaty all the time with my hair in a ponytail, and my scalp was acting all wonky – itchy and dry, then greasy. So, I gave these a shot to see if it could balance it out. I was pleasantly surprised that not only did it help to regulate my temperamental head, but my hair was ridiculously soft and silky when I was out of the shower. I did not expect that. I had hoped that with the shea that it would be softer than the straw my hair used to get back in the day. It did that and more.

Now, since we all know I color my hair red and that is the first to fade, I don’t use this very often, but that’s only because I am paranoid – I was assured that this is safe for color-treated hair. And, since the sweet scent of coconut isn’t too cloying, & with a hint of something else that makes it more “fresh” than “beach party”, I have been able to get some of the rest of the fam to use it, too. That definitely makes this inexpensive set (around $3-4USD each) a bargain, since more folks can/will use it.

Fess up – have any of you used an anti-dandruff poo/cond lately?

elf C brush Makeup Wars: Favorite Makeup Brush

Whenever I get new makeup, if for some reason it comes with a teeny little brush or useless sponge applicator, the first thing I do is get rid of it, because I have something better to use – the elf “C” brush – which is my entry into this edition of “Makeup Wars: Favorite Makeup Brush”.

This ridiculously inexpensive ($3USD, but they constantly have promotions if you buy it online) brush is my daily staple. It works as my lid covering brush, my crease brush, my blender brush – whatever I need it to do. It is firm enough to press the color into my lid, but flexible enough to spread it evenly all over. The bristles are not uber soft, like my Kevyn Aucoin brushes, but I wouldn’t expect them to be for the cost. I have more than gotten my money’s worth from these (*yes, I have 4 of these) brushes – without very much fallout or ferule loosening. I simply can’t ask for more than that.

I really do adore the “Studio” line of products from elf (*as you could tell from my $20 Makeup Challenge), including the Complexion Brush, which comes in second to my “C” brush, as I only have 2 of those. icon wink Makeup Wars: Favorite Makeup Brush

Tell me – what is your favorite brush? Have you ever tried any of the elf “Studio” line?

Introducing the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund

You guys know how I appreciate when companies make significant contributions of monetary support to worthy charitable causes. I have even spotlighted MAC, Elizabeth Arden and Kiehl’s. So when I heard about the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund (*in honor of a dear friend of Laura’s and the sister of LM President and CEO, Claudia Poccia) and the donation of 100% proceeds from two new products, I wanted to bring it to your attention, too.

LM F12 BONNEMINERH e1345004940990 300x263 Introducing the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund

Starting in September 2012, Laura Mercier will be releasing the Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette and the Rose Hope Lip Glace. The palette is a “universal compact” that consists of a Bronzer veil, 2 Cheek veils and 2 Glow veils and will be $48USD. The glacé is a high-shine, highly pigmented lip gloss that “gives the appearance of fuller lips” and will be $24USD.

100% of the profits from these items will be donated to the fund, and not just for the month of September, but ongoing. I know that the palette is permanent, but the lip gloss is limited edition so be sure to get one of those soon.

Do you ever just buy a product to support a cause, or do you buy a product because you like it, and the donation is a bonus?
