Journey to Hair Oasis and Get the Best of Both Worlds with NEW göt2b Oil-licious Shampoo & Conditioner!

Coming off the success of the styling oil, göt2b recently introduced NEW Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo and Golden Shimmer Conditioner – a deliciously-scented duo to complement all hair types. Containing Argan Oil, Marula Oil and White Grape Seed Oil, the Smooth Shampoo and Golden Shimmer Conditioner provides lightweight manageability and touchable silkiness without the greasy feel sometimes associated with rich hair products.

got2b_Oil-licious S&C

As I like to do with beauty products whenever possible in order to provide an accurate review, I have been using the Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo and Golden Shimmer Conditioner for a few weeks on my wavy, colour-treated hair, and I am so obsessed that today I picked up a ton of backup!!

The Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo is slightly musky, sweetly scented in a clear, golden formula of smoothing oils. I have to warn you, a small amount of product goes quite a long way, cleansing without sudsing up to a huge lather… The first time I tried it, I thought I needed more shampoo, but it is a great product, cleansing well, allowing me to go a full 3 days between shampoos (which I do not do often!). That is saying a lot considering this a moisturizing shampoo. My hair felt not only cleansed, but protected and soft after use. And the continuous use is helping keep my hair shiny, soft and protected from all of the heat-straightening and curling I put my hair through.

Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo offers:

  • Micro-emulsion technology providing sumptuous shine and touchable smoothness.
  • Improvement of shine more than 100% versus untreated hair!

The Golden Shimmer Conditioner actually contains tiny traces of golden shimmer, which at first made me nervous… was it going to sparkle in my hair? Was it a special-occasion product? Rest assured that the shimmer simply serves to add additional shine to your hair once you rinse it out – no glitter here! It provides a light condition to protect your hair without weighing it down. And the slightly musky scent is delicious!!!

Oil-licious Golden Shimmer Conditioner delivers:

  • Effective detangling while nourishing hair with indulgent care of precious oils.
  • Restoration of damaged hair even before blow-drying!
  • Infused with Mica to impart a delightful golden shimmer.

The Oil-licious line was such a hit in my home that once again, I was finding myself “borrowing” the products from hubby’s shower. The unisex scent is delicious on my hair, and equally yummy when hubby uses it. Today I finally picked up backup so we each could have our own bottles! I’ve also purchased the famous Oil-licious Styling Oil and will hopefully be able to bring you a review soon!

göt2b NEW Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo and Golden Shimmer Conditioner retail for $7.99 each and are available at mass retail locations across Canada including Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, PharmaPlus, Loblaws, Jean Coutu and Target Canada.

butter LONDON Lippy Shimmer is now available on the butterLONDON.ca site!

It’s piCture pOlish Thursday again and today I bring you another sparkly gem that is part of the Limited Edition Collaboration shades! piCture pOlish is an amazing brand that created the Collaboration Shades, polishes that the piCture pOlish Girls created with bloggers or their Network members (online vendors). How cool is that?

piCture pOlish Atomic was created with blogger Sarah of Samarium’s Swatches, and launched in January of this year. Sarah was inspired by the element Samarium, her blog namesake, a silvery white metal. Samarium oxidizes in the air, forming a grayish-yellow powder, and that is why there is gold shimmer sparkle in her creation!

piCture pOlish describes Atomic as a silver/white metallic holo (scattered) that has NO glitter.  Atomic contains a holographic shimmer to create a magical shade, complex with a lot going on!

Atomic is a pale silver with a warm tint, making it suitable to, in my opinion, all skin tones. It is perfect for layering – it’s sheer enough to be a top coat-type polish in order to change the base colour, but today I wanted to capture its pure beauty. Below I used two generous coats of Atomic over base coat, and luckily it was a sunny day so that you can see the amazing holo sparkle!

picturepolish_atomic

I personally like VNL (visible nail lines), but if you wanted total opacity, you could add a third coat of Atomic or layer it. You know what else is amazing? Atomic dries super-quickly, so you don’t have to worry about layering or using three coats!

Here is a picture of Atomic slightly blurred to show off the amazing delicate holo for you:

picturepolish_atomic_blur

Do you think I should layer Atomic over a coloured base next time?

Get your very own bottle of Atomic by visiting piCture pOlish on-line and or any piCture pOlish Network member, including Harlow & Co, Llarowe and Nail Polish Canada. And don’t forget to follow the Girls on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram for all the latest news, giveaways, and more!!

(Product provided for consideration and review. All opinions are my own.)

Being the product junkie that I am, I try a lot of new products. A LOT. And how do I know when a new shower or hair product is amazing?

Well… it mysteriously disappears from my shower.

And I can’t use it when I’m in there…

Until I go for a walk… over to the hubby’s shower…

And that’s exactly what happened with Dial’s new Triple Moisture Ultra Moisturizing Body Wash! It “walked” away. Straight into the hubby’s shower!!

Ok. I can’t blame him. It. Smells. Amazing. Envelops the entire shower with the delicious scent. And feels even better on your skin… luxurious, soft, moisturizing…

Here is some info on this brand-new product:

Delivering the effectiveness we crave, this creamy formula is a must-have for every shower. Featuring an astounding 3X more moisture than regular Dial® clear body washes, the rich blend wraps you in a blanket of moisture leaving skin luxuriously softer after each wash!

But it doesn’t stop there – in addition to lavish ingredients known for their naturally soothing benefits, NEW Dial® Triple Moisture Body Wash has a scent that will warm your senses, leaving skin as nice to sniff as is it silky-smooth.

What makes this product so amazing? Three rich body butters that are beloved for their skin drenching properties are actually built right into this creamy, luscious body wash. Dial® Triple Moisture body wash contains the following 3 moisturizing butters:

  • Shea Butter
  • Jojoba Butter
  • Mango Butter

To top it off? Dial® Triple Moisture Body Wash has just won U.S. Product of the Year Award! Over 50,000 consumers in the U.S. voted, and the super moisturizing benefits and fresh scent of Dial® Triple Moisture made it come out on top of any other body wash!

Dial Triple Moisture 473mL DL_5_09419_00

NEW Dial® Triple Moisture Body Wash is now available at leading mass retailers including Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, Loblaws, and Jean Coutu. Suggested retail price of $4.99-6.99 Cdn each (473 mL).
