So I told you guys that one of the changes on The Glamorous Gleam would be revisiting the monthly favorites post in an effort to get in more reviews for products that I am currently loving without boring you or myself. To kick off this series here are my favorite products for the month of March.
Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo
A blend of certified organic botanicals tea tree oil, peppermint and eucalyptus, this clarifying shampoo removes all product buildup leaving my hair squeaky clean and my scalp feeling tingly and refreshed. It doesn’t contain lauryl/laureth sulfates so it cleans without stripping the hair, however as with most clarifying shampoos it can leave the hair dry so I follow up with my SheaMoisture African Black Soap Purification Masque.
Africa’s Best Organic’s Olive Oil Extra Virgin Hair Polish
I ran out of my Mizani Gloss Veil and didn’t feel like running to Marshall’s for another bottle (and surely wasn’t paying almost $25 retail at the local BSS) so in search of a quick replacement I came across the Africa’s Best Organics Olive Oil Hair Polish. It leaves my hair silky and shiny without weighing it down or leaving build up, you only need a small amount and it smells so good!
Maybelline Clean Express Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
I came across this eye makeup remover and since it said new I decided to give it a shot. The dual phase, oil-free formula quickly removes everything including primed eyeshadow, waterproof eyeliner and mascara. All you need is a small amount on a cotton pad and best of all it doesn’t irritate my eyes. I’ve also been using it to remove lipstick that has stained my lips.
Wet ‘n Wild MegaEyes Creme Eyeliner
This eyeliner will always be one on my faves no matter how much I stray. I hadn’t used it in a long while but picked up a new jar and used it all month long. Reminded me of how much I love it.
New York Color Minute Quick Dry Polish in Grand Central Station
My current bottle of Seche Vite was too thick to use once again causing bubbles and shrinkage and I had ran out of my Seche Restore. I realized how tired I am of paying $10 for a damn top coat that’s no good halfway through the bottle and then having to pay another $10 for a thinner to fix it. Total waste of my hard earned cash. I went on a hunt to find a new cheap top coat that was quick drying. Although the NYC Quick Dry Polish in GCS wasn’t labeled as a top coat it was clear, quick drying and 2 bucks so I gave it a shot. It leaves my nails ultra shiny without shrinkage and dries to the touch in about 5 minutes. It takes a good half hour though to dry completely. My nails does start to chip a bit after three days if I’m rough on them but it just gives me a good reason to change color more often. This stuff is awesome!
Have you tried any of these goodies?
That NYC quick dry polish is a holy grail for me too, and it never gets stringy like Seche Vite..
I think I’m going to stock up next time there is a BOGO sale. Love the stuff!
I love the Trader Joe’s tea tree tingle it makes my scalp feel so refreshed although I did not know that it was a clarifying shampoo, thank for this bit of information it is truly appreciated.
