Tresemme ReverseYourRoutine Product Review

Today I am going to review about Tresemme’s latest products, their volumizing shampoo, and conditioner in which you #ReverseYourRoutine. Read on to know what I think about these products.

20160725_140134

First of all, I would like to put out there that I have very fine, straight hair that gets greasy very easily and also tangles a lot. I often need volumizing products and I cannot skip the conditioner. As a result, my hair gets extremely greasy and I have to wash my hair often. This is a major problem, especially during the summers. Using a conditioner at the end makes my hair turn greasy very quickly. Long ago, I had read a tip where they suggested that conditioner must be used before the shampoo. This didn’t work very well as my hair would become unmanageable. So I didn’t stick to using this tip as the conditioner wasn’t formulated to be used before shampoo. I went back to using the usual shampoo and then conditioner routine and used a truck load of products to keep my hair volumized.

I am so glad that Tresemme finally formulated a product to tackle this situation. There are many out there who have fine hair and don’t necessarily use a lot of products. So this conditioner-shampoo is a great solution to keep the hair voluminous, tangle-free and manageable. Moving on to the products, both the products are white in color and have a very pleasant floral fragrance which I think is a little different from the rest of the Tresemme products that I have used so far.

The pre-wash conditioner is a thicker consistency than a usual conditioner. There are no instructions on the bottle as to how long you need to keep the product. I have used this product a few times now. I have left this in my hair for as long as five minutes and also have tried washing it off almost immediately after applying it. I must say, it works very well both ways. The shampoo leaves your hair smelling great, voluminous and manageable. I have been loving this product for the summer. This is my holygrail products during these summer months. I haven’t had to wash my hair that often.

This is an answer for everyone with fine hair that has struggled with greasy hair and products that weigh down your hair. This is a drugstore product that won’t hurt your wallet. Give this product a try and you won’t be disappointed.

Will I Repurchase? Yes, I definitely will.

Burt’s Bees Cleansing Towelettes Review

Standard

I religiously use cleansing towelette to remove my makeup. They not only remove makeup but the texture of the towelette helps clean the skin better. It contains make up remover or other cleansing ingredients that can be a big factor in the health of your skin. I got these Burt’s Bees all natural cleansing towelette in the fall Target Beauty box. I finally used these and here’s the review.

BBCT1

Ingredients:

This claims to be 99.1% natural

BBCT2

My Experience with using these:

When you first see them, you will notice that they are plain and doesn’t have any texture to them. But they are exfoliating enough to clean the skin. I use them on both sides. It has a strong scent to it. It’s a pleasant fragrance, nothing chemical like. I don’t use any makeup towelette on their own. I massage eye makeup removing cream and then wipe it off with a towelette. I do each eye one by one. Then I massage cleansing oil into my skin and then wipe it off with the towelette. Then I take a clean towelette and wipe my face and this time lips, clean. I noticed that this towelette does leave a slight oily residue. I definitely need to wash my face with a foaming face wash although it claims that it removes dirt, oil and makeup without rinsing. As I am wiping my face with these, I notice that there is a slight tingling and slightly burning sensation on my skin. But this didn’t break me out although it caused slight irritation and redness for a short while. Also, the packaging is great. It’s the ones where there is a sticky part that you lift up to take the wipe. It keeps the packet air tight when you shut them.

  1. The strong scent

  4. Leaves oily residue

Rating: 2/5

Cheapest and Best Primer

Standard

If you have combination/ oily skin and have always wondered why your makeup looks cakey or just doesn’t last too long. You need to add an important step to your foundation routine – PRIMER. I know there are many of you who have not considered using a primer at all. Well, it’s never too late. I wasn’t sure which primer should I try out and after searching a bit, I decided to settle on Monistat Chafing relief powder gel.
Moni1

Price: $5.98 at my local Walmart but I had a coupon and ended up paying 4.98. So this costs approximately $5

Quantity: 1.5 oz/ 42 gms

Product claims: The product claims to other things 😀 😀 but as the name suggests it is a powder gel. So the gel on application, turns into a smooth powder like on your skin

Moni3

Ingredients: The most important ingredient Monistat has is Dimethicone and that’s why this works great as a primer

Moni2

My experience with the product: The area of the skin where this product is to be applied is equally sensitive as our face. Monistat doesn’t have any fragrance at all and this is mentioned clearly on the tube. It comes in a clear gel form in a flip top tube. The flip top is a little flimsy so you need to make sure that it’s shut close properly. It once oozed out in my makeup bag. And the product itself feels very smooth when you apply it on your skin. And you can immediately see that your pores start to disappear. It sort of fills in your pores and makes the skin even. And moreover when you apply a foundation, it glides on smoothly. The foundation application becomes a lot easier. With Monistat, it’s less of a work to apply the foundation especially when you are in a rush. As the day goes by, you’ll notice that the oiliness doesn’t show through the foundation. It helps to control the oiliness to an extent. To conclude, I can say that using a primer helps the makeup application easier and lasts longer. Anyone who’s not tried a primer, I would say this is a good product to start with.

I dont know if you can tell, the lines on the back of my hand has  disappeared after applying the primer

Likes:

  1. The feel of the product on my skin
  2. Pores disappear
  3. Evens out the skin
  4. Clear gel
  5. Fragrance free
  6. Affordable
  7. Works very well as a primer

Dislikes:

  1. The flimsy packaging

Ratings: 4.5/5

Will I repurchase? I love this product for priming my face but I plan to try a good face primer.
