Today’s post is an update on some of the products that were in March’s GLOSSYBOX.
TRESemmé Platinum Strength Deep Conditioning Treatment
TRESemmé Platinum Strength reinforces hair’s naturally-protective layer, restoring your hair’s beauty and protecting against future damage.
The texture of this product is quite liquidy, it feels more like a shampoo – minus the suds.
It leaves my hair really smooth, and it actually straightens them a bit too. Not that it’s a straightening conditioner, but it seems to relax them a bit.
I’m not a big fan of the smell though. I find it has a dry smell, for lack of a better word.
Since it’s a deep conditioning treatment I only use it once a week. If it was a regular conditioner I would still only use it once a week though because of the smell. It doesn’t stink or anything, it’s just not a scent I like, but it’s tolerable once a week.
Will I buy this product? No.
Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer
While Natural Glow can help you achieve a skin tone that is one shade darker in just 3 days, it is also a rich, luxurious moisturizer that is suitable for all skin tones from fair to dark. No odour!
I’ve never tried a self-tanning lotion before so I was excited about this one, but a bit scared at the same time because I didn’t want to turn orange.
I used it on my lower right leg (left side in picture) for about a week and a half before I took the picture. As you can see it is slightly darker than the other leg. This “tan” was achieved in 3-4 days though, I just didn’t have the chance to take a picture earlier.
My leg looks slightly tanned and not orange which is good. I think I will use this on my legs for now just to give them a bit of colour for when I wear skirts.
Will I buy this product? I don’t think so. I’m glad I got the chance to try it, but I don’t feel it’s a must for me.
ModelCo Cheek + Lip Tint in Rosy Red
ModelCo Cheek & Lips delivers perfect amount of sheer colour for naturally flushed ‘just pinched’ cheeks and a sexy pout.
I was looking forward to trying this product because I love lip tints.
This one looks like blood when it first comes out and it kind of has a jelly texture.
When you wipe it off it leaves a nice stain. You wouldn’t wipe it off of your lips though, this is just to show you that it does stain.
I’ve only used this product on my lips because I don’t wear blush and I wouldn’t know where to start on how to apply this as a blush. I quite like it on my lips though.
To me this is a dry tint, it does not stay on your lips to hydrate them, it simply stains them. You could apply a lip balm or clear gloss over it to give it a nice shine.
It has a berry smell and it tastes sweet.
The instructions say to apply with a finger, but I don’t like the stain it leaves so I use a lip brush to put it on.
Will I buy this product? I don’t think so. I like the tint, but I find it a hassle to grab for a lip brush. I like things simple.
BM Beauty “Platinum Tiara” Eye Shadow
Beautifully rich colour, in a sparkly grey shade. 100% natural mineral formula! Cruelty free and BUAV approved! Vegan!
I haven’t had the chance to wear this one yet, but it’s a nice colour.
Will I buy this product? I haven’t used it yet so I can’t say. Although this will last me quite a while so I don’t see the need to purchase anytime soon. If it works well I might check out their other colours though.
Have you tried any of these products?
