Clairol Herbal Essences Naked -- Dry Shampoo

There are so many dry shampoo's on the market these days.  I tried one made by John Frieda a few months ago, and I did not care for the strong scent, so I rarely ever used it.  I happened to be grocery shopping one day, and saw this Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo, which was on sale, so I decided to try it.  I have to say, dry shampoo's have really come a long way -- there are some very nice one's out there that don't smell so heavy.  This one happens to smell very nice!

The Clairol Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo is perfect to use, in-between shampoo's to absorb excess oil.  I have an oily scalp, and even more so in the summer month's, so this stuff is a must have!  When you apply it, you have to shake-shake-shake and then spray at your roots and rub it in and then brush or comb through.  This stuff REALLY works!  My roots immediately looked cleaner (not oily).  This stuff really does the trick when you are in a hurry.

Lancome Visionnaire - Advanced Skin Corrector (serum)

I received a sample size of this serum a few months ago with a GWP at my Lancome counter, but never got around to trying it.  Well, I tried the sample and I noticed my skin started to look more clear and radiant after a couple of weeks.  I was getting down to the last drop and knew that I had to pick up a bottle ASAP!  It's a bit pricey, but for a serum, it's well-justified.

This serum helps to correct uneven skin tone, reduce pore size, wrinkles and helps give a clearer complexion over-all.  The formula is  very lightweight, and non-greasy and I love how it absorbs right into my skin.  You can apply this serum day or night, but I have been only applying at night, before bed.

If I use it twice a day, I will run out sooner; so, I'm trying to make it last.  It has a subtle scent also, which I don't mind.  It's not very often that I buy "high-end" skin care, but I feel this product is worth it, since I can see the results!


Alba Botanica "Even Advanced Enzyme Scrub & Cleansing Gel"

I recently discovered this brand at Whole Foods Market.  The cleansing gel is very nice and leaves my skin feeling clean, not dry.  I did not particularly care for the scent it has; almost like a manly scent, if you will.  Other than that, it's a great gel cleanser, especially in the summertime.

The enzyme scrub is also very nice for when you want a light exfoliation and to freshen-up your skin.  I would not call this a heavy-duty exfoliant; it's gentle enough to use several times a week.
