Nutra Lift Simply Superb Shampoo Review

Press Sample

I’m always on the look out for the Holy Grail shampoo for my thick hair.  I had the chance to review Nutra Lift Simply Superb Shampoo with Goat Milk and was very excited for the chance.

Nutra Lift Shampoo

Nutra Lift Simply Superb is a premium gentle, daily shampoo infused with luxurious Pure Silk for shiny & vibrant hair. A Non-Soap, Non-Detergent shampoo that moisturizes & conditions with Goat’s Milk. Including a Natural & Organic, delicious blend of aromatic, anti-oxidant rich herbs for a healthy scalp. Especially formulated for people with sensitive skin. Pure & Natural for beautiful hair. Great for normal hair. Excellent for dry damaged hair.

When I first started using Nutra Lift Simply Superb, I was pretty happy with it!  My hair felt silky, it smelled like sweet roses and it conditioned nicely.  Unfortunately I fell out of love with it about 2 weeks later.

About a week into using it, my head started feeling itchy, so I went back to my old shampoo and it cleared up.  Tried Nutra Lift again, and same thing… itch and flaky and it felt like I had build up on my scalp.  Now I know what you might be thinking… maybe you weren’t rinsing it all out?  Nope, that wasn’t it.  I made sure I was rinsing it out completely but over the course of a few days, I had a weird buildup on my scalp I’ve never experienced with a shampoo before.

Sadly that was the last I used Nutra Lift Simply Superb Shampoo.  It just wasn’t for me, and I was really bummed because I LOVED the scent and the feel on the first couple of days of use!  It was perfect… but I wear a lot of black tops and white flakes aren’t something I want showing.  I don’t know if it was body chemistry that didn’t agree or what, because I’ve read fabulous reviews on this shampoo.  It just simply isn’t for me.

Price: $19.00

Both of these shades are beautiful and I really loved them on their own as well as over another shade.  My favorite is Bling It On! by itself.  The holo against a silver foil base is just beautiful and the holo is nice and strong within it.  I had no application issues with either shade and I think this is a fabulous set!

I saved another favorite for last!  Sunday Driver!  This is an intense mint green base with turquoise shimmer throughout.  This has a much subtler shimmer than the previous 7, but still amazing.  If you love mint shades, then you need this.  Now.

Sunday Driver side

Sunday Driver CU

Overview

I don’t know about you, but I love a good shimmer!  All 8 of these are gorgeous and look great in any lighting.  All were easy for me to apply, but because of the intense shimmer, shades like Kissed By The Sun, Basking In The Sand, and Hot Springs Dipping Hole need to be applied in thin layers for an even look.  Nothing difficult, but if you aren’t use to intense shimmer polishes, you should be prepared for that.  The result is stunning!

Want an early chance at any of these beauties?  Sign up on Gloss48.com before April 23rd for early access!

The Hero Duo (Bulletproof Betty and Gauntlet Girl) will ONLY be available on Gloss48.com, so if you want them, be sure to snag them when you have the chance!

Make sure you check out Wonder Beauty Products/ SuperChic Lacquer on Facebook for more updates and photos of this amazing collection!

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster Review

Press Sample

photo 1 (4)

I recently had the opportunity through iFabbo to review the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster!

I have had a couple of experiences with Dermalogica in the past, all of which had been good, but none as good as the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster.

I have combination skin.  So I get oily in some places and very dry and flakey in others.  Choosing a moisturizer type product is always a pain because if I pick a good hydration one, it can make the oily areas worse, but if it doesn’t have enough moisture, the dry areas get even dryer throughout the day.

Dermalogica Bottle

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster is a rich serum that contains Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, and Glycolipids which help to improve skin hydration and minimize fine lines.

Booster

This is what the serum looks like, the amount shown is about the size of a dime, and it is plenty to cover my entire face and neck.  This isn’t a product to replace your moisturizer.  Skin Hydrating Booster is a product that is applied to your face and neck before moisturizer.

Overview

I have been using Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster for 3 weeks now, applying at night and in the morning, and I have noticed a significant improvement in my skin.  The “flakey” areas have been behaving, and I have been able to use a lighter moisturizer so my oily areas don’t get out of whack.  I only need to apply a thin layer, which soaks in almost immediately without any type of residue left behind.  It does have a faint lavender scent, which I like.  It isn’t a strong scent, but I can detect the lavender.

Overall, Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster is a perfect addition to my skin care routine, especially now that the weather is warming up!

Price: $56.00 for 30 mL

Where To Buy: Dermalogica Website

Have you tried out Dermalogica before?  I’d love to hear about some of your favorite products from them!
