Trashy Talk | May Edition

Hello Passionista –

I have some new empty products to share with you before I officially trash them. These are all products I have enjoyed and will mostly likely be purchasing again.

Bobbi Brown Rich Color Gloss in the shade Pink Cocoa


This lip gloss has lasted for 2 summers. It has been my favorite and go to lip choice for all my summer vines. The formula is thick and shimmer. It lasts a long time so you don’t have to keep re-applying. It is a bit pricey so I’m not in a rush to purchase another one. I think I was treating myself to something nice when I purchased this lip gloss a few summers ago. I normally would not spent more than $10 to $12 on  lip gloss. Purchased at Nordstrom for $29.00

Michael Kors Wonderlust
I am in love with this scent. I received this samples size in a perfume sampler as a Christmas gift. It has a powdery smell to it which I enjoy over a floral scent. I think it make a nice everyday perfume. Its strong enough to last all day but not super over powering. I got compliments all time when wearing it.  Ulta has the 3.4oz for $115, I’ve been shopping around to find a cheaper price because now that I am out of this sample I want to purchase this perfume.

Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-in Conditioner
This is one of my favorite leave in conditioners. I have been using this product for at least 3 years. It is for dry, dull and brittle hair. For sometime I struggled with breakage at the crown of my head. This leave in conditioner help bring that section of my hair back to health and life. It served not only as a leave-in conditioner but also a detangler and a bit of shine for my natural afro puff. I really appreciate the quality of the packaging for this product. I alway loose tops off my spray top products. But the top on this spray bottle fits super tight yet it’s easy to take on and off. Also the sprayer works like magic. It give you an even spray of product to the hair without being a headache to pump. Purchased at Target for $8.99

Curls Goddess Curls Botanical Gelle
This frizz fighting gel is the only gel product I use on my natural hair. My hair does not really do well with gels, I experience a lot of flaking. This is the only gel I have found that does not flake in my hair once it has dried. I appreciate the soft but firm hold it give to my natural styles. This gel is made with certified organic mango and shea butter and plumeria flower extract which adds moisture to the hold. It took nearly 7 months to completely use this 8oz product. I will be re-purchasing it now that I am out. Purchased at Target for $7.99

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Strong Roots Spray
This product is for dry, damaged or color treated hair. I have none of those things. I was out of town when I purchased this product because I needed some type of product that would help my twist out while I was out of town without all of my go to products. I honestly just went in the store grabbed the cheaper product I thought would work. And it did!  I love the way the product sprays evenly throughout your hair. The formula foams up really well. I did not expect it to foam up but I like the foaming effect. It served as like a styling mousse that contains coconut oil, monoi oil and peppermint oil. You can actually feel the freshness of the peppermint on your scalp. This product helped me achieve my twist while on vacation, which I appreciate.  This is a new product that I will be purchasing at some point to add to my hair product rotation.For the record, I lost the top to the sprayer before I even used the product. Purchased from a local beauty supply store for $5.99

Garnier Fructis Styler Curl Treats Defining Smoothie
I received this product in a in a VoxBox from influenster. It has become essential to my hair wash n’ go routine. I love how it helps my curls keep their form for days without needing to refresh. I was shocked that a Garnier Fructis product was able to do this for my natural hair. This 10.5 oz product lasted about 4 months. Now that I have tried it, I will be purchasing it at some point I know.
