I don’t want to jinx myself or anything, but I’ve been known to have a little bit of dumb luck. I’ve been on gameshows (and won), I’ve called into radio stations (and won), and I play slot machines (and win!).
Last week, I found out that I won a beauty blogger contest through Birchbox and I couldn’t been more excited! I was one of a handful of beauty bloggers chosen to receive, review and write about a brand new product before it launched.
Introducing. . .
There’s always a dilemma when you get sent products to review. You hope that the product is good, because it just doesn’t seem nice to bash something that was given to you. (Don’t get me wrong, I’d totally do it. . .I just wouldn’t be happy about it. ) Well, let me just tell you. . .this stuff is AMAZING. Phew!
I have been using it the past few days and have really noticed a difference in my hair. I have been following the instructions and use just a few drops in my wet hair before styling. My hair has never been softer or shinier. I have been wearing my hair straight, which is something I rarely do because straight enhances the dry frizz! Even though it’s an oil, it’s not overly greasy and does not weigh my hair down. As well as having an oily face, I have an oily scalp (go figure) so I’m always nervous about putting more oil on my skin or hair. I use this all over (from roots to tips) and I don’t look like I need to take a shower. WOO. I’ve recently become a big fan of Beauty Protector.

I’m very particular when it comes to smells. I don’t like anything overly perfumy (that’s a word, right?) or too strong smelling. I’m terrible at describing scents, but it has a clean earthy scent that is not overpowering. It smells good to me! If you have color treated hair or hair that is dry or frizzy, I would definitely give it a try. It doesn’t say it’s for a particular hair type, but I would imagine it would work for everyone. I myself have fine, color treated hair. If you want to give your hair some added shine without weighing it down, this might be for you. It also says it’s supposed to protect against heat and environmental damage. BONUS! It’s not available just yet, but keep checking the Birchbox site.
Being a beauty junkie I have used a lot of hair products including serums and oils. This is definitely one of the better ones I’ve tried. So, if you’re looking to pamper your hair, I say. . .go for it.
And ps. . .I wasn’t lying about my random luck. Fingers crossed it keeps up 2014.
