HASK Charcoal Purifying Hair Care Collection

HASK Charcoal Purifying Hair Care CollectionI’ve been testing a lot of different hair products lately, some good and others not so good. My hair is usually pretty healthy but I can tell all of the switching around of products has taken a bit of a toll. My hair was getting a little dry and seemed like it could use a fresh start. I was so excited to try the HASK Charcoal Purifying Hair Care Collection because it seemed like exactly what my hair needed. This collection uses charcoal and citrus oil to clarify and refresh hair. Charcoal derived from coconut shells removes impurities and product build up and lemon and grapefruit oils invigorate and cleanse hair without drying it out.

HASK Charcoal Shampoo and ConditionerThe HASK Charcoal Purifying Shampoo is a medium gray color with darker specks of charcoal in it. It’s a thicker shampoo with a light citrus scent. Since it was pretty thick, it was a little hard to spread in my hair at first and I had to use more shampoo than usual. This worked really well though. It made my hair feel clean but didn’t give it that stripped feeling. The HASK Charcoal Purifying Conditioner had the same color and scent. It was nice and moisturizing and left my hair feeling light and healthy, not weighed down by any leftover products. At the same time, it was sleek and shiny without any frizz or dryness. I really liked how this shampoo and conditioner combination made my hair feel.

HASK Charcoal CollectionI also received a cute travel brush (love the pineapple wearing sunglasses!) and a packet of the HASK Charcoal Purifying Deep Conditioner. I love these deep conditioning packets from HASK. I can get two or three uses out of them and they are super moisturizing. The Charcoal Deep Conditioner is no exception, I love how soft it makes my hair feel. This is a great way to immediately help with dry hair.

I’m so glad I got to try the HASK Charcoal Purifying Hair Care Collection. The shampoo and conditioner did a wonderful job of clarifying my hair and removing leftover products without drying it out. It immediately made my hair feel better and it looked healthier and more lively. I really liked the deep conditioner as well, it gave my hair some much needed moisture! I definitely recommend this collection to anyone looking to “reset” their hair and give it a good, deep clean.

Charmed with Soufeel

Soufeel Travel Charm BraceletI LOVE charm bracelets. I had a dream when I was younger that someone would buy me a charm bracelet and then continue to buy me fun charms for special occasions. Needless to say, that didn’t exactly work out. A few years ago, Stacie actually bought me a charm bracelet as a gift but since they’re not very popular right now it’s hard to find charms and I’ve ended up buying myself most of the ones I have! I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to make my own Soufeel charm bracelet. I still love the idea of collecting different charms and making a personalized piece of jewelry and theirs are so fun!

Soufeel BraceletI started with the Soufeel Basic Bracelet and added five different charms to it. Soufeel has so many different ones to pick from. I ended up making a travel-themed bracelet as G and I travel a lot so I thought it would be fun to wear. All of the charms are sterling silver and most of them also contain Swarovski crystals (perfect for a little sparkle!). I would recommend going up a size with the bracelet. You don’t want it to be too snug or you can’t add any charms.

Soufeel Travel CharmsI picked out five different travel charms. It was pretty hard to narrow it down, they have so many fun ones! I ended up with the UK Big Ben Charm (love the flag print), the Aeroplane Dangle Charm (love the Swarovski crystal windows), the Leaning Tower of Pisa Charm (it actually tilts if you stand it up), the Sydney Opera House Pendant Charm (I love that I could wear this on a necklace too), and the France Eiffel Tower Charm (love the detail).

Soufeel Silver Travel Charm BraceletI’m really happy with how my Soufeel charm bracelet turned out. I think the charms are so cute and I love the quality and all the little details. I’ll probably end up buying some cute spacer beads to separate the charms a bit while I’m wearing them and I just know I’ll be adding more of their travel charms, they’re all so perfect. I think once I’m done with my travel-themed bracelet I’ll move on to another one, they have so many other charms to choose from.

Soufeel Charm BraceletI really liked picking out all of the different charms and creating my own personalized charm bracelet. It was a lot of fun and I like how I was able to pick out exactly what I wanted and create a theme to my bracelet. I think Soufeel has so many amazing charms to choose from and I really like how easy they are to work with. If I ever decide I want to add new charms, move the old ones around, or put a charm on a necklace instead, it’s really easy to do so. I’m going to have a lot of fun with my new charm bracelet and I’m thinking these would be perfect to give out as gifts.

HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Collection

HASK Bamboo Oil CollectionHASK is quickly becoming one of my favorite hair care brands. I’ve had the chance to try their Coconut Oil Nourishing Hair Care Collection and their Mint Almond Oil Thickening Collection and I really liked them both. So you can imagine how happy I was when they asked me to try their Bamboo Oil Strengthening Collection. The HASK Bamboo Oil Collection is designed to strengthen and repair damaged hair while protecting it from future breakage. My hair is pretty healthy but I hardly ever cut it (maybe once or twice a year) so split ends tend to pop up every now and then. I also recently added highlights so I’ve been looking for products that will help repair any damage caused by the bleach.

HASK Bamboo Oil Shampoo and ConditionerThe HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Collection uses bamboo oil to strengthen and revive lifeless hair. Bamboo Oil provides essential nutrients that combine with biotin and collagen to make hair stronger, more flexible, and less prone to breakage and split ends. The HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shampoo is a thicker shampoo that is a bit hard to spread throughout hair but it cleans very well. I had to spend a little bit of extra time and use a little more product to make sure all of my hair got washed but it wasn’t too big of a deal. The HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Conditioner was rich and moisturizing but it didn’t make my hair greasy. I could tell it was different from my normal conditioner. My hair didn’t feel as light and bouncy afterwards, instead it felt thicker and stronger.

HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening CollectionThe HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shine Hair Oil uses bamboo oil to tame hair and reduce split ends. You can use it before or after drying but I prefer to use it after to add shine and create a sleek look. I like to use a little of this on the ends of my hair to reduce any flyaways or static. The HASK Bamboo Oil Collection has a fresh, green scent that is almost a little lemony. It’s a nice scent for spring and I like adding the Shine Hair Oil to my hair instead of wearing perfume. The HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Deep Conditioner is a deep conditioning treatment that really fortifies and nourishes hair. I love these little packets from HASK. I can usually get two to three uses out of them and they’re great for really moisturizing and nourishing hair to keep it healthy. The Bamboo Oil Deep Conditioner is no exception. I love how soft and healthy it makes my hair feel.

HASK Bamboo OilI really like the HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Collection. I can tell it is making my hair stronger and healthier. I love how it helps to fortify hair to keep split ends from happening and I really like how it prevents breakage and makes hair more flexible. To be honest, I usually can’t tell the difference between a brand’s hair care collections (usually they seem like the same product with a different scent) but I can totally tell the difference between all of the HASK hair care collections I’ve tried. I like that the differences are so noticeable and it really justifies trying the different products. It makes me feel like HASK really knows what they’re doing (especially because I love how the different collections make my hair look and feel) and if I tried a different collection in the future, I would be getting new benefits from the products.

Have you tried any HASK products before? What collection is your favorite?

When Sheet Masks

When Sheet MasksI have a bit of an obsession with face masks. I love all different kinds and I really love trying new ones. A few that I always have in rotation are some kind of mud/charcoal mask to remove impurities, a hydrating mask to keep my skin moisturized, and a bevy of sheet masks to keep my skin looking great. I love how low-risk sheet masks are- they’re pretty inexpensive and since they’re a one-time use, if I hate it I never have to use it again! And they’re just fun to use! I recently got the chance to try a couple of When sheet masks: The Last Choice and Travelmate. When is a Korean brand that is starting to pop up all over the US (their masks are sold at Sephora, Ulta, Birchbox, and Anthropologie). When sheet masks come in five different varieties to suit all different skin needs. The masks are made from coconuts and are designed to be suitable for everyone, even those with sensitive skin.

When The Last Choice MaskThe Last Choice is a super hydrating mask that delivers instant moisture to your skin. I love hydrating masks so I was super excited to get this one. When sheet masks are a little different than the other sheet masks I’ve used. Inside the package are three different pieces: a plastic-coated paper lining, a jelly-like mask, and a thin paper layer that looks like a normal sheet mask. I was initially super confused. The directions said to discard the plastic and paper pieces (which I mistook to be the paper lining and the actual mask because that felt pretty plasticy) but just know that the actual When sheet mask is the thick, plastic-like jelly layer, not the paper layer that looks like a normal sheet mask. The Last Choice definitely moisturized my skin well. I didn’t notice a huge change in how my skin looked but it felt pretty moisturized and looked a bit more plump the next morning. I would use this again.

When Travelmate MaskTravelmate is good for moisturizing and refreshing skin after traveling. I travel quite a bit so I was really excited to try this mask. I really liked how easy these masks were to use. You just put them on for about 30 minutes and then take them off. There isn’t any mess and they are a nice way to pamper yourself. I liked the results I got from Travelmate. Once again, I didn’t notice a huge difference in how my skin looked immediately after using this mask but I really liked how my skin felt after a while. I can see how these would be great for sensitive skin. They worked well but didn’t sting or make my skin tingle at all and the jelly texture felt really nice on my face. I would also use the Travelmate mask again.

What are your favorite sheet masks?

Rocksbox Jewelry Fun

RocksboxJewelry is one of my favorite things to buy. I love how a statement piece or even a few delicate necklaces can really transform a look. I think it’s so fun to pick up a few inexpensive pieces to try out and I really love taking my time to find a nicer piece that’s just perfect and has a sentimental meaning behind it. My jewelry addiction can be a bit of a problem though as I tend to hold on to far too many pieces that I don’t wear anymore! My jewelry box is constantly overflowing and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve really started appreciating nicer jewelry that doesn’t tarnish after a couple of wears so unfortunately my love of jewelry can end up costing a pretty penny. I recently got to try Rocksbox, a subscription jewelry rental box which seemed to solve a lot of my jewelry woes.

Rocksbox 1I have a confession to make, I’d heard of Rocksbox before but I wasn’t really convinced I needed it. For $19 a month, you get a box with three jewelry pieces that you can wear as much as you want or send back at anytime to get a new box. If you really love a piece, you can keep it and you will be charged for it once your box is returned. I wasn’t sold on the idea of renting jewelry but once I received my first box, something clicked and I totally “got it.” Rocksbox is a way to try out a bunch of fun jewelry without having to buy it all! If you like a piece, wear it as much as you want or buy it at a discount! Plus, each month you get an extra $10 of “Shine Spend” that you can use for any of the jewelry from your box. You might find out you’re not really into statement necklaces or you might learn that you love bangles. It’s a great way to test out new jewelry or refresh your wardrobe without spending a lot of money and filling up your jewelry box with items you might not wear in a few months.

Rocksbox JewelryMy first Rocksbox was super fun! I added a bunch of items to my wishlist and then a stylist curated a box just for me based on my jewelry personality. Once I received my box, I was able to leave feedback on the items so my stylist will be able to better help me in the future. I loved all of the items in my first box: the Pave Pendant Necklace from Sophie Harper, the Crown Ear Climbers from Luv AJ, and the Geometric Diamond Ring from Slate, all in coordinating yellow gold.

Rocksbox Necklace and Ring 1I had a lot of fun wearing the Slate Geometric Ring. It was such a statement piece and I really liked it but I’m glad I received this in my Rocksbox instead of buying it! I loved wearing this around for a few days but then I was ready to move on to something else, it was just a little to big for every day. I absolutely loved the Sophie Harper Pave Pendant Necklace though. It was dainty enough to be worn with everything and I loved the longer length and pave detailing. I ended up purchasing this necklace. With the Rocksbox discount and my Shine Spend, I saved enough to cover the box subscription price (and I still got to try out a bunch of other jewelry)!

Rocksbox Earring and RingI was really excited to get the Luv AJ Crown Ear Climbers in my Rocksbox. I’ve been wanting to try some ear climbers but wasn’t sure if I would like them enough to justify buying them. I’m so glad I got to try them out in my box, I ended up not liking them very much! I loved the design but the posts were really thick and I had a lot of trouble actually getting them in my ears. Once they were on, they pinched my ears a lot. They were super uncomfortable and I’m glad I didn’t have to buy any to find that out!

I loved my first Rocksbox and I am completely sold on the idea now. I think my first box was perfect because it covered all of the benefits of renting jewelry: I found a ring that I really liked wearing for a few days but then was ready to try something new, I found a necklace that I loved and was able to buy it at a pretty big discount (about half off), and I found out I’m just not into ear climbers so I don’t need to waste any money on them. I’ve already returned my first box and my second should be here soon (I mailed mine back on Friday and my new box was shipped on Monday so the turnaround time is pretty fast). I definitely recommend Rocksbox and I’m so glad I was able to try it, I might be addicted now!
