Dry Shampoo Review: Battle of the Brands

Which dry shampoo will come on top? It is time for YOU to decide! This dry shampoo review battle of the brands has been HIGHLY anticipated and I am so excited to finally have it for all of you! I tested 10 different dry shampoos and rated them on their smell, price, residue they left behind, and how well they worked at making my hair feel clean.

Dry Shampoo Review Battle

I go about 15 days between washing my hair. I have done this for years and honestly didn’t think much of it until I had mentioned it to a few friends. They were blown away that I could go that long. My hair is just so used to it at this point, I am sure I could go much longer if I wanted to. 15 days seems to be my sweet spot for my hair though! I obviously wouldn’t be able to achieve this without dry shampoo, so I have quite a lot of experience with different dry shampoo brands I have used over the years. I wanted to bring back a lot of them that I have tried in the past and a few that I hadn’t ever tried before. I put 10 dry shampoos to the test, just for you guys!

Keeping Watch

Thanks to Panasonic for sponsoring today’s post. All opinions are my own.

I know I have spoken about this in the past, but I suffer from anxiety. (I always have!) There are several things that I get anxious about, but the major one is keeping my home safe. For example, I typically check all of my doors 2-3 times before going to bed.

To relieve my anxiety about keeping my home as safe as possible, I received the Panasonic HomeHawk Monitoring System door so that I can keep watch over my home 24/7.

Bonus: I can check to make sure that my packages are safely delivered!

Motherhood Isn’t Always Squeaky Clean

Tracking Pixel
If you are a parent, you have probably had more moments than you can count where you have thought to yourself, “Nobody told me that this part was going to be so hard!” I find that thought sneaking into my mind more often than I care to admit! Parenting is hard. No matter what phase of life you are in, there are challenges that parents face with their children. My kids are both still young, so most of our trials include diapers, lack of sleep, homework, housework, and tantrums. Parenthood isn’t always that squeaky clean fantasy that you had when your first child was still in the womb! That is why I am excited to partner with Baby Dove. They understand that motherhood isn’t always squeaky clean and they encourage parents to embrace life’s real moments!

Trying to do laundry with a toddler

Trying to do laundry with a toddler is a lot like trying to wash dishes with ketchup, instead of dish soap. It is a little pointless! While I am folding, she is unfolding! It is a constant game of [Read more…]

Cleansing Infusion for Body and Face

The winter really did a number on my skin. I have been working to take better care of my body this year. This includes taking care of my skin. Now that I am turning 30 this year, I am realizing just how important skincare needs to be in my routine. I recently was introduced to Olay Cleansing Infusion products. They have become part of my #GlowUp goal. Get it, growing up with glowing skin?

As I have grown up, I have come to really appreciate authentic jewelry. There is just something special about knowing that what you are wearing is real and it is quality. That is why I have been a fan of JTV for many years. It is jewelry that I love, quality that I want, and at prices that I can actually afford!

Springtime Baby Skincare

Tracking Pixel

There isn’t a lot of focus on baby skincare, unless there is an obvious problem with their skin. I learned this the hard way when my baby’s skin was showing signs of being quite sensitive. She would get bumps on her skin from lotions, wipes, and body wash. It was so sad! Most of these things could have been easily ignored, which is why it is so important to pay attention to your baby’s skin. They aren’t able to tell us if something is wrong with their skin, so it is important to really pay attention to how their skin is reacting to any new product you are using. That is why I was thrilled to partner with Baby Dove on this sponsored post. We have been using their products and they are working wonders on my baby’s sensitive skin.
The changing of seasons can also bring a lot of change to a baby’s skin. The more time spent outside will bring a lot of new experiences for a baby, and that can bring new challenges for their skin as well. It is something that we, as parents, need to be aware of.

Thankfully, we have found that Baby Dove products work wonders on my baby’s sensitive skin! Baby Dove cleansers and lotions are made with 100% skin-natural nutrients for delicate baby skin. This has definitely been apparent as we have used Baby Dove products. [Read more…]

Combating Winter Skin Problems

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

My skin gets incredibly dry during the winter. I know that this is an issue that a lot of people deal with. My skin is dry all year round, so the extremely dry months are really hard on my skin. I have tried a lot of moisturizers in the past. Some of the issues I have experienced with moisturizers have been that they are too thick, sticky, or they don’t give me the moisture that I need.

That is why I have really enjoyed using the Olay Total Effects Whip! It is helping me combat my winter skin problems. I have been using it for about a month now and my skin is feeling more moisturized than it has felt during the winter months in years past.

Typically, my skin will get really dry on and around my nose, on my smile lines, and on my chin. Ironically, they are places where many people have oily skin issues! My skin will get dry and flaky, making it so my foundation looks terrible over the top! That is what I have experienced for years! But this year has been much different. [Read more…]

Rethink Your Diaper and Wipe Choices!

This post is sponsored by Comforts Brand

When I first became a mom, I had no idea how many diaper and wipe options I would be faced with. It became a little overwhelming sometimes! What really confused me is when one brand would seem to work really well and the next month, it would be failing miserably. I never could find a diaper and wipe brand that I loved. It made me really frustrated because I was only using the name brands that I had grown up seeing commercials for. I thought that those had to be the best options out there. Boy, was I wrong!

Glam Fall Makeup Look

This shop has been compensated by ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses and Collective Bias, Inc. All opinions are mine alone. #TreatYourEyes2 #TreatYourEyes #CollectiveBias

I love making my makeup a little more moody as the seasons change. After a summer full of light and airy makeup, I am ready to bring on the rich colors of Fall. This glam Fall makeup look can easily be worn as an everyday look if it is paired with a little less dramatic lip color and looks fantastic for a night out with an even more dramatic lip color! I love how regal it feels, without being over the top and difficult to recreate.

When I do my makeup like this and really try to focus on my eye makeup, it is important that I wear contacts. I have experienced doing my makeup in the past, only to have to wear my glasses and it just kind of takes away the effect! I find my ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses just as important in my beauty routine as my actual beauty products. I have absolutely loved these ACUVUE®  VITA® Brand Contact lenses that were so highly recommended to me during my Target Optical® visit.

To create this eye makeup look, I used one eyeshadow palette with many neutral options. I love having a palette like this because I can find every color I need in one place. I also used a liquid eyeliner pen and volumizing mascara. [Read more…]
