Product Review: John Frieda Root Awakening Health Boosting Detangling Spray

Hi everyone.

So, as promised, I am doing a review. I am reviewing the Health Boosting Detangling Spray, found at drugstores. What this spray basically does is untangle your hair. When you go out the shower, you spray 3-5 pumps at your roots and massage it in. I like to comb the spray through my hair. The spray contains natural eucalyptus, vitamins, and heat protection. The spray is for all hair types. I bought this product around 4 months ago, but never had a chance to review it.

I like the product. The smell isn't bad, you can definitely smell the eucalyptus scent. It does detangle pretty well, but as for it's nourishing and silk-ing claims, I don't see a difference in my hair. I think it's nice that it also has heat protectant. The bottle is 6 FL OZ. and it does last a long time. I've had it for 4 months and I still have half the bottle. Pretty much, it does what it is intended for, to detangle your hair.

Product: John Frieda Root Awakening Health Boosting Detangling Spray
Rating: 7.5/10
Purchase Again: Yes

FTC: I purchased this product. I am not affiliated with John Frieda. This is 100% my opinion. I am not getting compensated to review this product.

I'm Back!

Sorry for my very long absence. I have been overseas vacationing for almost 2 months, with limited internet access! But now I'm back! Expect a review soon! ;)
How has your summer been??

Product Review: The Body Shop Nutmeg and Vanilla Body Butter

Hey! So for this month, I will do various reviews on different body butters. Today will be The Body Shop's Nutmeg and Vanilla Body Butter.

The smell of this body butter is not overwhelming. It's not my favorite, but I like it. It is thick. (Well of course, it's a body butter, duh, silly me!). When you rub it on, it is shiny and greasy. The shine will stay for maybe (at the most) 5 minutes. What I like about this butter is that it is long lasting. I placed it an hour ago, that is at around 7:45pm EST, and right now, it is 9:01pm EST. So that's a little over an hour. If you run your hand over where you rubbed it, you will still feel the product, but it is also still soft, and this body butter doesn't lose it's scent. However, if you wash your hands regularly, then of course the butter will wash off. The butter is for normal skin. I placed it on my hands and they definitely feel soft. I recommend this one. It's not my favorite, but if you have normal skin (at least your hands aren't very dry), then I would recommend it. It is $20. The price might be intimidating, especially for a body butter, but you get a lot of product and it's worth it! (It is good for skin types ranging from normal to dry!)

Product: The Body Shop Nutmeg and Vanilla Body Butter
Price: $20
Rating (out of 10): 8/10
Recommend: Yes

Until next time. I will be reviewing other body butters this month too, so stay tuned. Remember to follow my blog and help me reach my goal of 50 followers before July 12! Thanks again. Have a great Sunday evening!

The email was created for the sole purpose of this blog. If you have requests, or random questions about me, or want to do a certain tag, or want me to review something, or etc, then simply email me. Please do not send me any junk mail, spam mail, forwards, or such as those will be marked as spam and immediately deleted, they will not be looked at. Other than that, feel free to email me!

Until next time.

Who Wore It Best?

Who Wore It Best - Katie Cassidy v. Lauren Conrad -

Posted using ShareThis

This time, it's between: Katie Cassidy and Lauren Conrad.
Honestly, I think Katie wore it better. The makeup better matches the dress, and so does the hair. It also fits better on her body. What do you think? Comment below.

Who doesn't love Leighton Meester? I came across these photos of her album photo shoot. They are gorgeous. Thought I would share. ;)

How To: Choose A (Spring) Scent

Hi all.

Spring. Florals and light nudes, pinks, and greys. Flowers, and cherry blossoms. What better time than to trade your warm, musky, winter scent for a light, spring one. Here are ways to help you pick a scent. Scents that are in this spring are fruity and soft.

-Smell each perfume on a fragrance blotter. Do not put more than one perfume on a blotter.
- Smell overload? Ask for something that smells strong, such as coffee beans, which most perfume stores will have. If not, bring some with you (if you know you are going to go perfume shopping.)
Smell them. If not, try smelling your sleeves.
-Once you narrow it down to a couple of perfumes, spritz on different parts of your body. "Warm spots are the best places to spray a scent because fragrance is enhanced by heat. Try the hollow of the neck, behind your ears, the inner wrists, and crooks of the knees and elbows. Avoid spraying your clothes or hair—some fragrances can stain and leave your hair greasy."
-Wait for a minimum of 30 minutes and smell, and decide which is the best.

Until next time.

Lots of Love,

Women Spend $13,000 Each on Makeup


I found this article very interesting. It is from yahoo. ( ).

"Supposedly the beauty industry is recession-proof. Why? Because when times are tough and ladies can't afford to splurge on a new outfit, buying a tube of lipstick or a bottle of nail polish provides a cheap thrill. And we don't know about you, but it's often difficult to go into a drugstore or walk by a Sephora without purchasing a little something. Well, a new survey has revealed that all those makeup purchases add up to big bucks over time. The results claim that woman will spend, on average, $13,000 in her lifetime. Does that number shock you, or are you already feeling pangs of guilt?

Superdrug, who conducted a survey of 3000 women, found that women begin regularly buying cosmetics by the age of 16. On average, ladies shop for makeup five times a year, spending around $39.45 on each trip. When multiplied by 65 years, the average female adult life, that brings us to a whopping $13,000. As for some specifics, they tallied around $1,620 spent on a lifetime of lipstick, $2,512 on eye shadow, and $3,446 on mascara. We refuse to believe it--we're going to start keeping track.

If these results really are true, women place a great value on makeup! The study found that 70% of women won't leave the house without applying something to her face, with 68% saying cosmetics make them feel more confident. One in five women surveyed said their boyfriends have never seen them without makeup, even in bed! OK, we get it. Makeup is important to us. But perhaps some of that $13,000 could be put to better use."

Until next time.

"Rompers" Polyvore Contest Winners

Congrats to the 3 winners. Due to the lack of entries for this contest, which by the way, is weird. This is the only contest that had less than 100 entries. It only had 16, I have no idea why. Probably because I was so picky about the rompers. Anyway, due to the lack of entries, instead of 12 winners, there are only 3. Congrats to them!

See more on Polyvore

Until next time.

Lots of Love,

Superficialgirl Spring/Summer Contest


So, this is my entry for the contest. I did a Polyvore Set of something I would wear during spring in real life.

So, a very popular trend (in which I will do a blog post soon about) is shoulder (chain) bags. I love this Chanel bag. I wish it was mine. Anyway, a popular color is also this very light, pink. I've paired it with a plain white top, and a black wide belt. I then added a creme/white color cardigan with sequins for a touch of sparkle. The heels are super adorable! For accessories, there are silver bow earrings, a silver heart necklace, a creme colored flower ring, and another sequined ring.

For the makeup, you want to add a little bit of color. This can be achieved with a neutral eye on top, followed by a pop of color on the bottom. Start by your choice of foundation, concealer, and mineral booster. Apply your choice of a neutral or light brown/gold colors on the top of your eyelid. On your waterline and lower lash line, apply an olive colored eyeliner and eyeshadow using an eyeshadow brush. Contour your cheeks, adding a light bronze color. For your lips, go simple by glazing with a light glitter pink color!

Until next time.

March Favorites

Hey! So today, I'll be doing a March Favorites. This is the first time I am doing it. If you don't know, the Monthly Favorites are sort of like a tag, kind of. Actually, a lot of gurus do them. It's basically when once a month, usually at the end of that month or the first couple of days of the next month, you list or talk about all your favorite items you used that month (beauty, skincare, makeup, tools, etc.). Let's begin!

1. Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer

I find this very good- I used it for the winter, and am still using it, for a little now. Here, March was kind of windy, so it helped. I bought this at BJ's, but I think this can also be found in drugstores for around $5.


LA Colors Sheer Lipgloss Tube in Clear
I don't really get lip products from LA Colors, or makeup from them in general. However, I decided to try. I actually like this. It is kind of sticky, but it is long lasting. The place where the lipgloss comes out is like one of those fabric type covered top, do you know what I'm saying?

3. The Body Shop Nutmeg & Vanilla Body Butter

This body butter does exactly what is says it does: soften the skin.

4. Britney Spears Curious Perfume

This is probably my only favorite "cheap" perfume. It does not compare to Daisy or Miss Dior Cherie, but I still think it smells good. It's something I could wear everyday.

5.Pantene Smooth V Sleek and Shine Shampoo

I love this shampoo so far. I recently go it, so I am going to continue experimenting with it! Hopefully it'll last. But it makes your hair very smooth and sleek. I recommend it!

I Just Realized


So, I just realized that I have not been posting a lot. I have so much tips and tricks to share, but I have not been wanting to until I reach 50 followers. However, how am I going to get 50 followers if I don't post interesting things? I have been holding back, and I am sorry. I am going to post all of the interesting things, even if no one is reading, even if people continue un-following. I am determined to continue this blog.

However, I have not forgotten about my resolution. Again, I reach to all of my followers. My goal is to reach 50 followers by July 12, 2010, my blog's first year anniversary. Although that is, as of now, unlikely to happen, I am still trying. Please help by spreading the message.

Until next time. ;)

Product Review: E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner

Hi everyone,

In my previous post, I said that I had ordered 2 sets from E.L.F. Cosmetics. Well, my shipment arrived Friday. I promised I'd do a review. I think I'm going to do each item separately. I'm not sure yet. Or maybe I should just review the whole kit. (I've only tried one so far, the smokey eyes). Anyway, today I'll be reviewing the E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner, which came with both of my Get The Look sets. If bought separately, it is only a $1.

E.L.F. claims: "Gel-powder formulation infused with skin soothers instantly brightens and glides on smoothly without tugging the delicate eye area."

I received this in my sets in Black. The eyeliner is NOT scented, which I guess can be a good thing. The tip is definitely very soft and smooth. When you apply it, it goes on smooth. It is easy to apply. It's medium sized, so it is short enough to stand up in the mirror and put eyeliner on without the eyeliner hitting the mirror. When you apply, it comes out thin, you have to reapply to make it thick. For the brightening part-I didn't really see a difference. Maybe because the color was black. I don't know, but I didn't see brightening. It is also pretty easy to remove. If you have and use a blending brush, you can blend the eyeliner because it blends well.

Product: E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner
Rating (out of 10): 8.5
Would I Purchase again: Yes.
Recommend: Yes.

The FTC law states that any blogger or vlogger must answer these 4 questions for every company they talk about on a blog or in a video:
1) Did you get this product for free by the company, or did you buy it yourself?
2) Are you getting paid or compensated by this company for this video?
3) Are you affiliated with this company?
4) Is this your honest opinion or a paid review?

My First E.L.F. Cosmetics Purchase

Hey everyone,

So I one day was browsing this website where you rate, review, and discuss other products. I happened to click on what they had compiled as the best makeup brushes. So, I was browsing, and I think number 5, or maybe it was number 2, no I think it was number 5. Anyway, number 5 was an E.L.F. eyeshadow brush. And I couldn't believe the price. It was ONLY $1. So, I went to their website, and fell in love with them. Their E.L.F line is great for beginners, and their studio line looks good. Of course, it's not a M.A.C, but E.L.F has very good quality products for very good deals. Their whole E.L.F collection is $1, the studio is $3, and the minerals is $5 and up.

I just wanted to share what I ordered. I'll do a review on the products when I get them, and FedEx is telling me I'll get them Thursday!

I have been looking for a smokey eye kit. I saw one at Bare Escentuals, but didn't get it. So, when I browsed their site and saw they had a kit, I had to immediately get my hands on it!

I think this look looks so soft and amazing! Can't wait to try it.

I also, using a code, got this red mini makeup set for free!
